on a dream

I want to clarify my position regarding my dream. It was a powerful dream and it taught me a lot about developing compassion.

I believe that under ideal circumstances ANY wounded, sick self-professed teacher, including Sai Baba, would be able to get over his/her illness and become a positive teacher figure through the example of his/her coming clean publicly about their mistakes and starting over. Starting over under such circumstances would also involve making compensation to each and every person one has hurt while abusing one's power over others. Such an action requires great courage and humility, in my opinion.

In Sai Baba's case, however, I deeply doubt that he is willing to take such a positive step. However, just because I doubt that it can happen doesn't mean that I won't pray for Sai Baba's inner healing.

As it stands now, I see Sai Baba as the worst possible example of being a teacher via negative example; a shadow teacher only. One can learn from an unreformed shadow teacher, certainly, but I feel that the price can be too great.
