Sathya Sai Baba – claims belied by actions

Posted by robertpriddy on April 30, 2009

Does  Sathya Sai Baba pass the only test of a guru? He has stated: “The only test anyone can apply to a guru, of whatever kind, is whether his words are in harmony with his deeds. Gurus are to be judged by how words are put in practice.”(Sathya Sai Baba in Conversations with Sri Sathya Sai Baba by J. Hislop, p.22 old ed., p. 18 new ed.)

The answer is ‘No, no and no again’. On occasions too numerous to list, Sai Baba has acted against his words and promises. For a start, in the famous Xmas discourse of 2000, he claimed: “When I am defamed, I never get incensed, for it is only the tree full of edible fruits that is attached by sticks and stones.” (Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. 4 p. 184). This is therefore demonstrably wrong. He lashed out at his critics as Judases who take money to defame him, as demons and so forth. [See the entire Christmas Discourse as translated verbatim by his students]

Sai Baba once ignored his critics – as long as they tended to fade away – but since the profuse world-wide the allegations of child molestation and homosexual intrusions have stuck to him indelibly along with powerful evidence that he was complicit in the 1993 murders incident and its cover-up, he was roused and raised his voice angrily while thumping his lectern in the infamous Xmas discourse. He lashed out at his critics as Judases who take money to defame him, and in later discourses called them demons without a spark of divinity in them (even though he has mostly proclaimed that everything in existence contains the spark of divinity).

An oft-repeated claim by Sathya Sai Baba, parroted by devotees, is that many kinds of unfair and undocumented accusations have been levelled against him through the years, both by sceptics and followers who are dissatisfied or disappointed by unfulfilled expectations as to Sai Baba’s attention etc. This is based on Sai Baba’s own pronouncements about how unfairly all good people have always been treated by their jealous contemporaries, and that he will be no exception himself. His defensiveness towards all who may leave him is seen in Sanathana Sarathi (11-92, p. 261), “The minds of the so-called devotees are turned in the wrong direction. If their desires are fulfilled, they praise Me. But, once a desire is not realised they go to the extent of even reviling me. Even while they are attempting to understand Me, they harbour doubts from head to foot. Some even leave me, when their worldly desires are not fulfilled.” But it is because of his reported fulfillment of his sexual ‘worldly desires’ that they left him!

Early on, knowing that his luck would most likely not hold and his activities would come to light, Sathya Sai Baba took the sly precaution of warning some devotees that he will have to separate “the grain from the chaff”, as if it were his own plan that devotees who cease to believe or accept him were first rejected by him! Why would this self-proclaimed “compassionate avatar” wish to do that? Those former follower who speak out against his deceptions and break of faith are called ‘disgruntled’ (this is accepted Prashanthi-speak), when in reality they are disgusted by him! He claims they did not get what they wanted from him – too right, they wanted truth, decency and that he should live up to his word, at least. They did not get it.

The worldly propensities 0f Sathya Sai Baba which he has most evidently been unable to overcome were told about to various persons by one of his earliest and closest followers who shared his bedroom for several of his post-pubescent years (the pair of them were known locally as ‘Radha and Krishna’, according to one of his earliest devotees, Vijaya Kumari [Vijayamma], and it would moreover be hugely naïve to believe that he never had sexual stirrings in the normal way. Sai Baba once stated in a discourse that the sexual instinct is the hardest of all tendencies for humans to overcome. That homosexual relations with minors are evidently quite widespread and tacitly accepted in much of India – though they are against Indian law –  are not openly accepted in Indian  society, so guilt and the need to cover up must also be equally widespread. A major research project by the Indian Government with UNICEF and Save The Children found that 53% of all Indians were sexually abused as children, with a preponderance of boys over girls! (See here)

Sai Baba tries to avert criticism for his well-known and often seen expressions of intense angry by claiming that, though he may appear to be angry or show human emotions, he is actually wholly unmoved by everything! So he could easily stand by and hear the cold-blooded execution by rifle-fire of four of his long-serving devotees without any emotion and that he simulates anger only to correct straying followers! How convenient for him, but not so convenient for everyone! He can rage like a mad lion (as experienced by Prof. Kasturi and described by other devotees). He intimidates his students in various ways (and sometimes their teachers too, as I saw him do in public in 1987 at a college discourse in Prashanthi Nilayam). This Janus-faced deception is not evident to those whose minds are entrapped by his indoctrination and who have sunk their social prestige and large parts of their lives and fortunes in his interests… but it amounts to calculated hypocrisy and deceit.

Sathya Sai Baba’s ‘curtain of shame’ & ‘doors of disgrace’

Posted by robertpriddy on April 29, 2009

Sathya Sai Baba devotees have long been circulating rationalizations about the infamous ‘curtain of shame’ behind which their Guru-God gives private interviews, especially to boys and young men, often alone. The “curtain of shame” is a telling phrase, but it also tends to hide the fact that there are also solid doors which Sathya Sai Baba closes when it suits him. 

bloodyThe lines on which devotee denials go are as follows:- ‘It is not possible to seduce anyone behind the curtain because:-

1) a curtain cannot conceal such an act taking place from those in the main room, one would see or hear it -

2) the time people are in the private inner interview room is too short.

3) there would be clear signs in the behaviour of the victim, marks on his or Sai Baba’s clothing etc., if anything so serious had taken place.’

These points are easily refuted on the basis of facts, even without reading the dozens of detailed and credible personal testimonies of those who have been molested behind the curtain and/or the doors.

Concerning 1): the obvious must be pointed out. Why can a curtain not conceal the view? The door is so placed, both at Prashanthi and Brindavan interview rooms, that most people cannot see the inside of the inner room from where they sit even when the curtain is drawn back. Many have experienced how difficult it is to hear anything but an occasional mumbling from the inner room, even when the curtain is not drawn! Sai Baba does not stand before the door opening, except perhaps when one enters. His seats are usually not at all near the door.
More crucial, however, is the fact that the inner interview room in the Prashanthi temple (mandir) is separated from the main interview room by a curtain, yes, but also by two fairly narrow but solid wooden double doors. These used to be of natural polished teak wood, until they were painted a rich blue colour (as clearly seen in the image above with the bloody floor in the interview room after the murder episode in 1993).

My wife and I have seen the doors firmly closed when young men have been taken into the inner room on several occasions. They were also closed on at least two of the occasions when we were taken in there.  In the Trayee Brindavan interview room, the inner room is yet more isolated from the main one, and a curtain and a door can be used there too. We both know two males well who were abused by Sai Baba behind that door – oral sex included! We have seen a boy and two young men taken into the private room singly by Sai Baba – so the testimony by former leader. Ashok Bhagani, of the UK Sathya Sai organization that this never occurs is false indeed! (See Ashok Bhagani denies fully documented facts)

Concerning 2): the private interviews vary in length and can last up to 10 minutes, especially when young men are invited in. From the main interview room, I have witnessed 10 minute private interviews with a student or very young man on several occasions. The curtain is supposedly not drawn when ladies get a private interview, though we have seen it drawn across where there were more than one lady together with Sai Baba. Sai Baba closed the doors when a close lady friend of ours and another lady were given the private interview in 1987.

Genital oiling by Sathya Sai Baba is confirmed and condoned by leading Sai office-bearers (including Thorbjørn Meyer, Steen Piculell, Jørgen Trygved, and also by Phyllis Krystal etc.) The time taken for Sai Baba to oil young men anywhere from the lower stomach to the penis and the perineum [i.e. between the anus and the gonads], can be quite brief.  When a boy has been kissed on the mouth and oiled, some reported Sai Baba masturbated them. They often still go to interviews – mostly in considerable confusion, no doubt, because they have come to believe he is a Divine Incarnation who can do no wrong, who is entirely pure and who may be healing them of ailments they do not even know they have! Sai Baba is reported as saying to various candidates that it is for their health, or raising the kundalini etc. The next step can be undertaken well within 5 minutes and yet better within ten, which means that the time factor is not really a problem.

The seduction techniques of pederasts are well known in the medical literature, the gradual approach at first and more daring and unexpected quick advances soon afterwards. It is known that some enjoy the excitement of taking risks, such as that of discovery.  When a boy or young man who has been brought up to believe that Sai Baba is nothing short of Know-all God Almighty and is a regular Shiva Destroyer as much as a blissful Krishna, he is obviously easy to handle. It was reported by several boys – and even by their girlfriends (see Hilda Wright and Gabriel M.)  – that Sai Baba grabbed at their crotches surreptitiously in the main interview room before a large group.

Concerning 3): The likely or possible behaviour of those coming out after sexual abuse is an issue. My wife and I have seen young men who have been given many interviews come out of the inner room after longish periods. The first time they are usually quite excited and tell much (if not perhaps all) about it. Some we have seen after 5 or more interviews come out with blank faces and will tell us nothing, despite the fact that we never remotely suspected anything untoward could have been taking place. This is confirmed by the reports of those who have spoken out about the abuses and how envious many devotees have been of them for all the attention they were getting more and more unwanted attention as time went on. Sathya Sai Baba is widely reported as saying  to those who report his sexual molestations, “Do not tell anyone about this” and/or “Do not tell you mother” (or father or parents).

It took real bravery – after terrible confusions and fears – for those who decided to tell the truth and make known what had happened to them, often in the face of 100% devoted parents and other family members and – of course – risking criticism, ridicule, ostracism slander and yet worse from other devotees and the Sai Baba attack man, Gerald Moreno, who heartlessly and relentlessly slanders and stalks them on the Internet. This is largely what happened in Sweden to the young man known as ‘the Golden Boy’ who spoke out at a crisis Sai meeting in Stockholm. Many devotees who had known him a long time would not even believe him, despite his anguish and tears, and put it down to mental disturbance, imagination and so on! They reacted likewise to the account of a boy who also bore witness to sex abuse, supported by his mother (Britt-Marie Andeén) who then closed down the Sai school she had started in Gothenberg and spoke out firmly on the matter. Since the evidence came pouring in from young men around the world from 2000 onwards, sheer betrayal was the reaction of nearly all devotees against the testifiers. So much for ‘listening to ones conscience’ and ‘help ever, hurt never’ and all that hypocrisy to cover up head-in-sand selfishness .

Countless devotees are in denial even after being TOLD FIRST-HAND by a victim, so how would they ever notice anything untoward when a young man comes out of the interview room looking serious and disturbed? They would have plenty of theories ready to explain it… Swami must have had to correct him strictly, and suchlike rubbish. Would they be in a fit state of mind to see any signs of abuse? Would they be searching for marks left by semen, oral sex or what… or even recognise it if they saw it in that situation? Absolutely not! All visitors know that Sai Baba always has at least one handkerchief very handy. Anyone who has been in a Sai Baba interview can ask, if Sai Baba had molested him or her, would they have come out and given any hint in front of so many largely fanatical followers, and servitors who are known on at least three occasions to have beaten up people very violently right out in the darshan lines. Would they have denounced Sai Baba in the ashram where there was a covering up the darkest possible doings… four cold-blooded executions in Sai Baba’s bedroom in 1993?

Gerald Moreno’s major lie about linking to exposé websites

Posted by robertpriddy on April 28, 2009

For the record only, here is one of Moreno’s earliest lies on-line about the exposé – from his first “time-line” page on vishvarupa.com.

No one was ever bnned from linking to any of the named websites.

Gerald Moreno’s fundamentalist Christian slur campaign

Posted by robertpriddy on April 26, 2009

The pro-Sai activist and most active front man for Sathya Sai Baba on the Internet, Gerald Joe Moreno, bashes critics of Sathya Sai Baba as fundamentalist Christians and/or anti-Semites. He does it because he has the proved agenda of trying to find devious ways to assassinate their characters, not because there is any truth whatever in it. He called Reinier van der Sandt a fundamentalist Christian, which he is certainly not. He has gone to considerable lengths to try to paint Sai Baba critics in general as Christians and/or fundamentalists, or something related to that, for example on his web page at http://www.saisathyasai.com/baba/Ex-Baba.com/christian-atheist-anti-sai-movements.html Here are his words of introduction from that page:-

For several years, many people have correctly suspected that there are Fundamentalist and Evangelical Christian movements against Sathya Sai Baba and Hinduism. Anti-Sai Activists have continually denied that Christian movements exist and have tried to dismiss these suspicions as excuse-making and the like.”

All those what he lumps together willy-nilly as “Anti-Sai activists” should “have continually denied that Christian movements exist” is preposterous in itself. He continues to try to make it seem that “Anti-Sai Activists” are compromised because a Christian website linked to their pages! They were not asked to link and no one known in the exposé has had anything whatever to do with them. This is Moreno’s typical deceitful spin to try to smear by invented association. See what he wrote:-

“Anton and Janet Hein-Hudson are the Fundamentalist Christian webmasters to apologeticsindex.org, which posts voluminous Anti-Sai articles and resources (they refuse to link to any site that refute Anti-Sai Articles)” and Strangely enough, Anton William Hein was a minister in California who sexually abused a child and was convicted of the same.”  (Crafty innuendo!)

This is all part of his long list of persons with Christian or fundamentalist leanings  – none of whom have any importance to the main exposé writers, but which he subtly implies by various means are involved as a homogenous group of “Anti-Sais” It is a fact that Tal Brooke, the first known published whistle-blower became a Christian with strong fundamentalist leanings, and that current exposé writers acknowledge his role – and even consider his testimony important as part of the developing scenario. This certainly does not make any of us in agreement with his faith.

Moreno also wrote “Reinier Van Der Sandt (RVDS) is a Fundamentalist Christian who is the webmaster for ExBaba.com, the portal to the largest Anti-Sai Site on the internet.” RVDS also wrote two letters to Cardinal Simonis trying to polarize Christians against Sathya Sai Baba. In Reinier Van Der Sandt’s second letter, he said: “This letter clearly shows that the catholic church and its representative Cardinal Simonis are not happy with the teachings of Sathya Sai Baba in India.”

None of this remotely proves that van der Sandt is a Christian or a fundamentalist, but it is Moreno’s agenda to smear his as such as far as he can.

A further point of contention: On his libelous attack blog site (posing as “Sathya Sai Baba – Life, Love & Spirituality”) , Moreno stated:- “Moreno never (ever) accused Robert Priddy (even indirectly) of being a “fundamentalist Christian”

I draw special attention to the “even indirectly” bit, because – for a start – he has very strongly insinuated that I am/was a fundamentalist Christian as I shall prove from his own words. I recall that he has included me in this accusation, most probably on the now defunct Yahoo groups ‘sathyasaibaba2′ pages, a set of countless postings on the website which the moderator has expunged, so I cannot find the posting now. Knowing Moreno, he may well be counting on this deletion when making his denial… besides which there are many indications that his memory is clearly far from perfect too. So it is a matter of his word and his memory against mine as to whether he called me this outright… Note that his words has constantly been proved untrue.

Firstly, Joe Moreno (as “>vishvarupa108 made wide accusations of clinging to a Christian fundamentalist belief against the group he calls “anti-Sais” which is shown in the following posting which turned up in an archived e-mail attachment I received. There he claimed we all cling to a “second coming” mentality because we have nothing else to cling to. Wholly preposterous, of course, and indicative of Christian fundamentalism – for belief in the Second Coming is hardly no longer a belief promoted by mainstream Christianity (as opposed to fundamentalists).  Moreno’s co-worker Lisa de Witt (who he never criticises or corrects despite her outrageous statements) has definitively included and named me as Christian and fundamentalist (which she may try to deny). Therefore Moreno is obviously aligned with her by his recent stated support for her claims.

So Moreno hypocritically tries through vehement denial to appear to distance himself from the business of smearing “Anti-Sais” as Christians and/or fundamentalists among whom he definitively includes me…  along with others of diverse faith and shades of opinion.

My statements have never been wilfully untrue, and I do correct anything that really proves to be incorrect as soon as I am aware of it. I do not read Moreno’s e-mails, nor open his web pages and blogs unless essential – as I have recently done to some extent – so he may have pointed out some small  errors that I did not therefore heed. Every tiny flaw Moreno can find he names a flagrant lie, a bold-faced lie, a shameless lie and so on and on… Unlike those of us who write with integrity and admits errors when they occur, Moreno NEVER retracts a single one of his false and witless accusations, he NEVER corrects any wrong information that is pointed out to him. Yet he repeatedly demands it of others in the strongest terms. This I call hypocrisy.

G.J. Moreno’s ‘senile dementia’ slurs, avoidances & irrationality

Posted by robertpriddy on April 26, 2009

Gerald Joe Moreno is seriously at odds with medical opinion: For Joe Moreno, small errors I have sometimes made in my rapid writings are the clear symptoms of a very serious condition, namely “senile dementia”. He does not apply this medical diagnosis to his own errors, of course, which are many indeed… of which more later.

Of course, as anyone can see from my web pages and blogs alone, I am completely compos mentus – and I am known for having a very excellent memory – and it is longer than ever. I am very healthy in mind – if less so in body at age 72. In all seriousness, does Moreno believe his claims I am suffering from such a serious illness, or is it just spleen? The answer is obvious. Since he also does not take issue with his co-worker Lisa de Witt in her reposting on a Wikipedia talk page the claim by a certain bogus Indian doctor of homeopathy [Rebello] 4 years ago that I was dying of AIDS, Moreno is clearly dishonest and vicious.  Moreno’s repeated hacking away at the senility theme is just his helpless tit-for-tat mentality – because I (and Barry Pittard among others) have pointed out the decline into senility of his revered Divine Incarnation, Sathya Sai Baba, who has long claimed he would never show signs of aging and much else preposterous besides.

Sai Baba recently claimed he always smiles - but nowadays only this!

Sai Baba recently claimed he always puts on a smiling face - but nowadays we see only this!

Sathya Sai Baba’s claims are the main issue, and his descent into decrepitude would be unremarkable but for his gigantic claims of never losing his youthful looks. It is not ageism to point out this huge discrepancy, for it is to show yet another deception by him. He has said he is really Krishna reincarnated, and would remain like him who supposedly was like an 16-year-old even when over 100!

Moreno is incapable of replying to any criticism in measured terms, and now that I at last am exposing his agenda of untruthfulness, deception, spin and disinformation, he is provoked into angry carelessness and excesses. He has long since lost his grip on decent rational thinking. As usual, Moreno picks on every small inaccuracy he can find in critics’ writings with evident glee and he fills pages and pages with overblown trivialities and vituperative rants and thus avoids all the genuine issues and never replies to the cogent rebuttals of his slurs and attacks. His unreasonable knee-jerk reactions and immoderate language apparently arise form his confusion, errors and habitual  mendacity… his calculated lies are evident to all who care to investigate. Few would be bothered, no doubt.

Moreno and Lies: Despite Gerald Joe Moreno’s constant bogus claims to the contrary, I repeat that I never tell lies. I do not have to admit to any lies, as I have told none. He has never proved that I have told a lie (which must be a conscious attempt to deceive through untruth) – for he has only claimed that every single tiny error – even a typo of a date – is a lie by me (and he regularly calls them brazen, bold, blatant and flagrant… adding contrived arguments, bogus ‘documentations’ and name-calling to add to the aggro. I reckon this fact neatly sums up the main lines of Gerald Moreno’s massive offensive against the exposé.

Gerald Joe Moreno – untruth and lies

Posted by robertpriddy on April 25, 2009

scan from Moreno's blog

scan from Moreno’s blog – he can’t control his language, so angry he is.

Gerald Joe Moreno constantly attacks me for lying. He has written this:-

I stand by my definition. Moreno conveniently overlooks the universal legal norm that, when an accusation of lying is made the burden of proof is on the accuser, not the accused! He is unable to prove any wilful intent on my behalf. His accusations against my lying are wilful, as all can see, and none of my errors or any other statements are proved to be wilful lies on my part. I am only guilty of some trivial inaccuracies, typos and other bagatelles. This is all being documented through my present series of blogs.

Moreno's wholly untrue slurs

Moreno’s wholly untrue slurs. Funny that blather about ‘penultimate’ too!

I do correct an incorrect statement – or an ambiguous one –  when it actually does come to my attention. In this respect, Moreno clearly always makes a false assumption that I read his e-mails – I never do since his very first two or three, nor do I open his web pages or blogs unless essential – as recently in refuting him at long last. So has previously not got much response from me. I see how he craves my attention to his trivialities and false accusation from his constant pleas to me to respond. So now he should be satisfied! Nothing I now see that he has pointed out is a lie or an untruth on my part.

As to my assertions that Joe Moreno was illegally molested in a sexual context, they are not slurs because they are entirely true: it is an objective fact that the events he described when he was “oiled” were against the law of most countries, including India [This has been pointed out by Basava Premanand, who is extremely well acquainted with Indian law].  It is not a matter of subjective feeling and/or belief, as Moreno wants it to be, and his private sense of pleasure afterwards and is entirely irrelevant. He can rail about it as much as he wants, it will not change that it was illegal. I consider that proved and closed. As to libels, Moreno has libeled me with untruths and mud-slinging constantly all over the Internet for over 4 years and now I am responding with rebuttals, to which he has responded  with more immoderate libels and inflamed language. That itself proclaims the complete lack of substance in his contrived accusations.

Moreno is unable to reply to 90% of what is shown about him and Sathya Sai Baba, so – in his emotional turmoil and  lack of integrity – he avoids it and concentrates on slurs. This will be demonstrated at length in future. Patience! Patience! Moreno doesn’t write from the heart, nor evidently much from the head either, but his spleen is evident throughout towards critics. For example, he cannot distinguish between what is “stated” and what “promotes a statement” (i.e. the case of Lisa de Witt who promoted Rebello’s statement that I was dying of AIDS… already years ago on Yahoo groups and Wikipedia talk pages). Moreno himself  promotes some of Rebello’s degenerate lies and most vulgar accusations against me too, which shows what also kind of agenda Moreno stands up for! All that is spleen, and poor ‘head work’. Explain those who can how he could have collected his web pages under the title “fair-is-fair”.

Sometimes I think Joe Moreno actually believes that I and Barry Pittard – and all the others he attacks for this – have really been lying. If so, he must suffer from have serious mental blockages and deep-seated psychic denial. It is explainable in that he has made countless claims that I and many other Sai critics are lying on innumerable points… so his entire prestige (not to mention his patently hate-aggravated mental condition) is dependent on maintaining his impossible position… and that is no doubt also why he steps up the volume of lying accusations and the extravagance of his adjectives and slurs. (See some of his countless lying accusations here)

Gerald Moreno’s personal details removed from vishvarupa.com

Posted by robertpriddy on April 25, 2009

Joe Moreno claims that he never ever removed any page with personal details from vishvarupa.com. This is entirely false. He removed pages entitled AboutMe.html, ExperiencesSai1.html, ExperiencesSai2.html and ExperiencesSai3.html – all of which contained diverse details of a very personal nature. (See proofs below)

showing pages NOT archived (or removed) by Moreno

showing pages NOT archived (or removed) by Moreno

The vishvarupa.com website was started by Gerald Joe Moreno – earliest known entry being October 5, 2003. One may note. however,  that Moreno either got removed or avoided archiving the pages in a period where he had his own photograph plus extensive account of his first knowledge of – and visit to – Sathya Sai Baba, including where  he was “oiled in privacy on the lower stomach by Sathya Sai Baba” All his pages are filed, however, including the extensive abuse pages against the Sai petition and libels against the many critics which he also had for some years on the same website, but removed them. Since I seldom look at his libelous and extremely voluminous, tedious and finicky websites, I did not notice until I just did a Google search on some keywords that he re-posted the materials at (http://www.geocities.com/www0db0www/ExperiencesSai.html  —  and at sathyasaibaba.wordpress.com/page/54/ and on his main libel site, saisathyasai.com. So be it. He also DID remove them from vishvarupa.com, so I was right in my statement.

Text with his personal digitally made “mandalas” was also removed (and the accompanying images) from vishvarupa.com, as follows:

” On my “Mandalas” link, not only do I have Mandala Art and information about Mandalas and Chakras, I also have Mandala Pictures of Ganesha, Lakshmi Devi, Shiva-Shakti and Kali.Also, if you are looking for Mandala Books, Mandala Links or Mandala Images you will also find them through my “Mandalas” link.
I hope you enjoy my Mandala Art Creations as much as I have enjoyed making them!”

The following text from the vishvarupa site”s AboutMe.html, and from ExperiencesSai1.html, ExperiencesSai2.html and ExperiencesSai3.html contains many genuinely personal details that Moreno had on vishvarupa.com, but removed – exactly as I claimed but he vehemently denied. Here they are:-

My hobbies are crystals, computers, web design, digital art, checkers, scrabble and being a Nature voyeur!  Love the stillness of night. Love the Ocean. The Ocean makes me cry.

Gerald Moreno and “oiling between the pubic area and the navel”

Posted by robertpriddy on April 24, 2009

Moreno’s claims about others who have shared their experiences with him about oiling by Sathya Sai Baba “between their pubic area and their navels” as non-sexual are vague and very doubtfully semi-substantiated, to say the least – no names, no details about these persons. A well-known British author living in Canada has informed several of us that he was oiled on the perineum – between the anus and the gonads (I have full proof)! Moreno’s claims conflict with many testimonies to the contrary (See referenced here), including the follow-up of masturbation, oral and anal sex. I have become entirely convinced not least since I have been in touch with other young men who were subjected to this and informed me that this “oiling” has a sexual aim [in confidence and therefore I cannot publish names]. I am willing to provide my evidence in court.

The following shows how the anointing with oil is done and shows clearly that it is often sexual in nature. It is by Basava Premanand, replying to Gerald Moreno’s statements on his web site.

Explaining the influence of Sathya Sai Baba

Posted by robertpriddy on April 23, 2009

Sometimes I have been asked, ‘How is it that many people do not immediately see that Sathya Sai Baba is a fraud? Many point out that his claim to materialize objects is evidently bogus, one should know in advance. This is far from evident to those who gets at all involved with him, not least because of the massive number of accounts circulating where it is stated as fact. No doubt the miracles claims puts off many persons who are of a sceptical turn of mind and who are not open to ‘spirituality’ or religion. Yet, that leaves a vast number of people who are not initially negative towards him, and he is not bigoted in that he gives  at least lip service to other mainsteam religions, though his doctrine clashes with all of them regarding his claims of being the Divine Godhead Incarnate. (To claim this is illegal in India, but no one has been able to bring him to book since he is protected by the highest in the land). His reputation was – until the millennium at least – based almost entirely on a vast amount of literature, films, videos and web sites which abound with stories about his divine nature, superhuman powers and good activities, which are endorsed by a very considerable number of influential and important people, especially in India. In his present wheelchair-bound decrepitude, and after the infamous 1993 murders in his bedroom and the flood of testimonies against him for sexual abuses, Sathya Sai Baba is no longer generating wide support of the kind he previously managed and for a number of other good reasons. Not least the vile cultist attacks on victims of his alleged sex abuses and on all critics of Sathya Sai Baba, however well-documented or well-founded.

Those who cling to their faith in him despite the many and highly revealing exposures of his untruthfulness, deceptions and frauds – especially since the sexual abuse testimonies began to come forth since 1999 – take comfort from being in the company of half-a-dozen Indian Prime Ministers, 4 Indian Presidents, the Former Head of the Supreme Court of India, Mr, Bhagwani, a former head of the Electoral Commission of India, heads of half a dozen nations, Ministers, State Governors, Supreme and High Court judges and many other well-known figures. Also of course hundreds of Indian Ph.Ds (even though many such from India are of doubtful validity according to Western University authorities) and perhaps dozens of foreign educators, though again, none of much consequence. Yet this phenomenon of support among educated persons for a demonstrably ignorant villager is despite all far from simple. It requires great application and perspicacity for anyone who has not been able to learn the hidden truth of many matters from inside sources to penetrate the mythology and layers of deception. After 18 years involvement myself, mostly as the leader of the Sathya Sai Organization of Norway, I have spent the best part of a decade since resigning in investigating thoroughly and critically, widely publishing my discoveries.

The majority who are open to Sathya Sai Baba – i.e. those who are not party to the deception to a lesser or greater extent – are quite simply roundly deceived and deluded by a the organized scam that is upheld by Sai officials, prominent devotees and their families who have invested their lives and reputation in Sai Baba, plus the very large number of local people whose livelihoods depend on it. The effectiveness of the propaganda is shown in that even UNESCO once agreed to be fully represented at an education conference in Sathya Sai Baba’s ashram – but since previously well hidden facts had become known by then, they withdrew. I had already left his organization. Since then no UN body has been willing to have any public connection with Sathya Sai Baba, despite huge efforts by Sai officials working through the Indian government and with the support of the former UN Under-Secretary General for Communications and Public Information, Sashi Tharoor. Further, Prince Charles tried for years to visit him (Sarah Ferguson actually did so), and Sai Baba reportedly counts many covert supporters such as Al Gore, Gorbachev, politicians in many countries, plus royal personages from Asian and European countries. The list of celebrities is not inconsiderable – Goldie Hawn, Steven Segal, Sachin Tendulkar, Sunil Gavaskar etc.

He is still followed by most of his chief devotees, despite UNESCO’s well-grounded withdrawal an educational conference at his ashram on grounds of suspected sexual misdemeanour and from any further association with him, and despite the U.S. State Department’s warning about him under suspicion of sexual molestations. That all these people are deceived is because of the cult of near-impenetrability – most of every day of Sathya Sai Baba’s private life is kept strictly hidden from all but his trusted lieutenants. More damning police evidence is about to emerge from a most reputable former inside source which will go on the record for always. Even that will doubtless not cause more than a few of the sleepers to awaken.

Some largely ill-informed commentators call Sathya Sai Baba “a third rate trickster”. Some of the time his sleight of hand is very transparent too. Yet one wonders therefore how much more a 1st rate trickster than him – Indian’s biggest earner of foreign currency through donations for decades  – or how many followers – hardly in the tens of millions! (One can safely discount the claims of 60 million, 600 million and everything in between which are made, even officially. Sai Baba is very skeptical about his so-called followers, saying there are very few who are genuine anyhow. My own observations through 18 years bear this out in all ways).

Of course, Sathya Sai Baba is not entirely fraudulent in everything – his teachings are sometime good in part at least – though usually too simplistic or fanciful – and his charisma and all the stories it has generated have inspired others to do good works and finance his projects. Otherwise I could never have written a positive book about him (though I was then in the dark about his true nature) The extensive published exposure of Sathya Baba’s deceptions and bogus claims that exceed any made by any known historical figure, made by scores of former followers, journalists and independent authors is on the record for the future. It has already had a great effect – not least on him personally and on his minions. Very few people can now get near to Sai Baba to discover how fraudulent he is – almost everything about him has to be taken on faith, and even very largely to those who have been with him for years, so secretive and protected from scrutiny he is.  My very close friend V.K. Narasimhan, who among Indian editors had single-handedly stood up to Indira Gandhi’s Emergency, was with him daily for 20 years and still considered that he was one of the few people who was doing anything for the poor in AP. He was sceptical of some of the claims… especially omniscience and omnipotence, but far from all of them, and he had been a hard-headed, tested and tried world travelling journalist and economist, though also soft-hearted. Due to what I eventually learned from him, I have until now been probably the most wide-ranging critic and exposer of Sathya Sai Baba. Hundreds of thousands of visitors have read my exposures in books, web pages and other media.

Joe Moreno as “sathyasaibaba” with smear campaign

Posted by robertpriddy on April 22, 2009

Gerald Joe Moreno poses as sasthyasaibaba to mislead people

Gerald Joe Moreno poses as sasthyasaibaba to mislead people - Love & Light becoming Hate & Darkness

Having run a massive smear campaign against all critics of Sathya Sai Baba, Joe Moreno claims he is fighting a smear campaign against him! This is his tit-for-tat, back to front thinking all over. However, I and others who he has continually attacked are finally rebutting his massive years-long smear campaign against us – and he does not like it! In his psychological obsession and deep denial, he imagines he is getting his own medicine back, but this is not so. He is simply being confronted by the truth of what he has done in ill will.

joeindialieBecause Moreno lacks credible arguments and cannot confront issues properly, he has descended into childish and libelous name-calling (fascist, Christian fundamentalist, pervert, shameless liar and much more). His anonymous postings of bogus materials are legion – eg. on the Sai petition (and under the name “sheilawaring” with nothing but his own texts and links to his own materials – which had been removed along with his earlier subscription and all his postings when banned on Netscape. This remains the case, despite his virtually raving on about this minor point with a whole set of contrived and untrue statements which are too boring to repeat – see the evidence here). Backing up this here are a few more examples of his constant mendacity:
1) Moreno’s
false registration on IndiaInteracts.com of him being located in India, serving to deceive the webmasters into allowing his (untruthful and libelous) postings and other Indians into believing he is not located in the West – at Las Cruces, New Mexico, as he actually is.

2) That Moreno web vandalism pales beside his postings to defame Sanjay Dadlani on pornographic websites. Besides, lacking credibility, he also manipulates photos of his opponents to make them appear ugly! Among several examples, the worst so far is his anonymous blog under the pseudonym ‘Equalizer’ (which was soon exposed as being him and no other person – apropos his misleading ploy that he never denied being ‘Equalizer’ – the fact is that he would never confirm that he was Equalizer, not until exposed)… see here – Moreno’s disgusting maipulated images.

3) He defends the unspeakable Lisa de Witt – his on-line smear apprentice and co-operator

scan from Joe Moreno's blog against me

scan from Joe Moreno's blog against me

through years who he admits now mails him about once a week! He writes Robert Priddy (whose failing memory appears to be the onslaught of senile dementia) cannot even remember who said what about him and falsely and erroneously attributed Leo Rebello’s comments to Lisa de Witt: What I wrote was quite different, and Joe has actually posted that, which shows that he is losing it, not I! See in the scan here that I stated Lisa de Witt “promoted” that idea (Besides I have a most excellent memory and I recall well who made the accusations – the mountebank and bogus doctor Leo Rebello – who most certainly never threatened to sue me for anything, as Joe falsely claims once again. For a start, Lisa de Witt quoted Rebello so as to smear me on a Yahoo bulletin board and on a Wikipedia talk page… Look at some few samples of Lisa de Witt’s mentality here

All this is not senility on the part of ageist Joe Moreno, it is one of many other wily, purposive misrepresentations of what I have written.

Joe Moreno’s schoolyard tit-for-tat attacks

Posted by robertpriddy on April 22, 2009

It is amusing that this self-styled “researcher” – Joe Moreno – has made schoolyard taunts about the current appearance of Barry Pittard, who he has never met – and whose photo he has never seen (though he did post one he presented as Pittard!). Moreno wrote “according to one email source, his face is heavily and deeply wrinkled” I can assure the public that I have photos of Pittard and he is not wrinkled in the slightest. This exemplifies one of Moreno’s methods of contriving materials, all of which appear ONLY on his contrived and self-referencing websites [he never links to anything outside his manipulatory control never to the wide range of materials that numerous opponents of Sai Baba have posted].

Sathya Sai Baba some years ago

Sathya Sai Baba some years ago. Not a pretty picture

Moreno does his usual schoolyard tit-for-tat to try to counter Pittard’s pointing out most relevantly what all can see, that Sathya Sai Baba is very noticeably aged, yet he has loudly proclaimed he would NEVER show signs of ageing! Why does Moreno not explain that massive discrepancy? Of course, Pittard has never claimed this of himself. Sathya Sai Baba has insisted that he would always retain youthful looks, putting this down to his “purity, patience and perseverance”. But he has been wheelchair bound for years now (due to a botched hip job and his egocentrically failing to follow his doctor’s orders after his operation). According to reports by a close observer who has finally left him and residence in India, Sathya Sai Baba has also shown diverse definite signs of senile development… slurred speech, weird behaviour at darsan and more. One could have sympathy even then, but NOT for his megalomaniacal and false claims!

Gerald Joe Moreno - non-devotee but is the main defender of all Sathya Sai matters  The major and unrepentant infringer of copyright - countless photos and texts - rails at length about ONE SINGLE photo which he for some reason is rather desperate to hide away.

To add insult to the ridiculous, Moreno is also an unscrupulous ageist – labeling people with whom he does not agree as suffering from “senile dementia”. Gerald Moreno’s time will also come. He is not exempted from the aging process, and can very well one day become wrinkled and decrepit after dementing himself into increasing hysteria and demeaning himself further though constant full-time muck-raking on computer screens in trying to defend the indefensible by attacking hundreds of persons on-line.

This is the self-claimed Divine Avatar, God Incarnate, Omniscient and Omnipotent, all of which claims Moreno has definitively stated he does not believe. But these are the MAIN CLAIMS Sai Baba makes on which his entire supposed Mission to Save Humanity is founded. Poor Gerald Moreno is in a total bind because he overlooks these crucial facts in defending him willy-nilly on any and every count. His denial of sexual abuses by Sathya Sai Baba will certainly never be believed by anyone but a dyed-in-the-wool devotee.

Joe Moreno continues to try to defend himself by blowing up side issues into major plots against him and degrading himself by yah-boo reactions, dirty tricks and compulsive long boring tracts vainly trying to prove minor points. Here is another example of his untruthfulness.

Anyone who is interested in the issues Moreno invents is confidently asked to view the materials on both sides before making any judgements.

Apartments in Prashanthi Nilayam and Brindavan

Posted by robertpriddy on April 21, 2009

Donors cannot become legal or de facto owners: Donors of large sums for the right to use an apartment at the Prashanthi Nilayam (Puttaparthi) and the Brindavan (Whitefield) ashrams once used to become ‘owners’ – but only in name, not in reality. Usually after some years, by paying an additional fairly moderate sum (by Western standards) they were given the use of a small unfurnished concrete-block flat consisting of one room, a bathroom and a kitchen. The kitchen was the only room they could  lock-up for their possessions while they were not staying  at the ashram. The apartment thus is available for for the rest of the year to any visitor who it is allocated to. The “owner” has no legal paperwork or any legal rights whatever to the property.

The right to be such a so-called  ‘owner’ of an apartment was far from automatic… one had to wait for Sai Baba’s personal blessing for this before being allowed to ‘buy in’… and many waited for years, and some without getting permission even when others ‘behind them’ in the queue did so. The right to use the flat was – and still can – be terminated by the ashram authorities without recourse to any hearing… and this has frequently happened. So the term ‘owner’ is highly misleading and intended to deceive. A more accurate way to say it would be ‘a lease-holder without any rights’. The idea was that Sai Baba granted the grace of tenancy of his property until such time as he saw fit to terminate this, whether due to misdemeanour or for any other reason. The term donor – in the sense of flat donor – does not mean one gets to have one specific room or ‘flat’, but usually gets whatever is free, but there are no guarantees of any kind in this case either. This was a further misappropriation of funds – without advance warning – of the ‘rights’ one was informed one would receive in return for the large donation involved.

God gives and God takes away! Devotees used to see the hard-won tenant’s privilege as major grace from the Lord of the Universe… yes, perhaps as the monopoly contractor and overall owner of the universe! But one can also lose ones flat if ashram officials see their way to accuse you of some breach of the rules set by this rich “God” – for whom they are the main earthly executives. Some devotees have simply had their flats taken away from them for some ‘sin’ in the eyes of those who rule the roost in the accommodation office. In one case of which I know the details from the owner, a man with serious heart problems, the head of accommodation took over his ground floor flat which he had furbished at considerable expense – without any compensation whatever – and it was given to an official of the ashram. He was given temporary flat use on the third floor, to which he could not climb because of his heart condition. No amount of pleading by his sons to ashram officials,  or letters from the Sathya Sai Organization’s UK  leader to Colonel Joga Rao or to Sai Baba etc. had any effect whatsoever.

‘Genital Oiling’ by Sathya Sai Baba + video evidence

Posted by robertpriddy on April 21, 2009

Reports about Sathya Sai Baba’s “genital oiling” – which has been established most soundly as factual, even by his defender, Gerald Moreno, will never go away, and they prove that Sathya Sai Baba  broke Indian law in unsolicited sexual interference s of many boys and young men. The actuality of these genital oilings has been admitted by top office-bearing devotees including Thorbjørn Meyer and Steen Piculell plus Sai VIPs, such as Jørgen Trygved – all of Denmark.(link to overview with video evidence)

The instances of several boys was taken by devotees as some kind of ‘re-channeling of sexual energies’ until the full spate of testimonies appeared from 1999 describing how this was often combined with outright sexual abuses including oral and anal sex. It is in this light that all these “oilings” by Sathya Sai Baba cannot be considered as other than sexual grooming for possible sex. This includes, of course, the interference Gerald Joe Moreno has described that he underwent. even though he felt he was being taken notice of for the first time in his life and which gave him a lift of spirits. He has made clear his confusion about the meaning of the oiling he was illegally subjected to (without asking for it or being asked if he wanted it!).

The case of Gerald Joe Moreno: Because Gerald Moreno defends Sai Baba so vehemently, he invites scrutiny of his own accounts, not least since he defended him even while believing him to be a sexual abuser, which is a clear self-indictment showing Moreno’s great confusion or else personal immorality. It does not help his case that he calls me a “pervert”, along with several others who have spoken out, including Reinier van der Sandt and Sanjay Dadlani. That shows his confusion and virulent anger as well as his inability to convince of his subjective and misguided views on the genital oilings. This whole bizarre and unpleasant issue MUST be aired in public, not least since there are many who cannot speak out about this in India without risking much, even assassination (which occurred in 1993 in Sai Baba’s bedroom) and also because all higher office-bearers in the Sathya Sai Organization – and very many ordinary members – have since 2000 been deeply involved in the cover-up of every detail as far as they can manage it.

Account by Sharon Purcell, mother of Sathya Purcell – as recorded by ex-devotee Glen Meloy, which throws light on the issue:-

(In 1993) Sathya Sai Purcell went to India with Hal Honig’s group of boys. One week later, Sharon followed her son to India with her friend, Jill. They got one interview. On that same trip, Sharon told me that Sai Baba had molested 3 of Satch’s friends in private interviews which caused him to tell his Mother he no longer believed in Sai Baba. One of the boys in his group who had his genitals oiled by Sai Baba was Josh Kintz, son of Mahri and Bruce Kintz, long term members of the former Cherry Valley, California Center under the leadership of the late Joy Thomas and now currently active members of the Hemet, California Center.

Another friend, Jed Geyerhahn also shared his molestation experience with Sathya Sai Purcell and as most of you know Jed has also publicly allowed his molestation experiences to be published in Faye and David Bailey’s writings called “The Findings”. There was a third boy in that same group, but we don’t at this moment have his name. All of these victims are now of legal age and no longer considered minors.

As if the molestations were not enough, the infamous shootings at Puttaparthi occurred while Sathya and his Mother were still there and young Sathya remembers vividly having to jump out of the way when they were still sweeping the blood from the temple later that morning. Honig’s group of boys had been allowed to be on the verandah for morning darshan. Unfortunately, Sharon said she mistakingly believed at the time that Sai Baba was merely rechanneling the sexual energies of the boys into spiritual energy and she continued to believe in Sai Baba for 7 more years.

This continued until May 2000 when a close female friend told her a pathetic and tragic story of how her husband had his genitals oiled by Sai Baba in 1968. She told Sharon about all the negative stories concerning Sai Baba on the Internet and  how her husband, who was an intimate friend of Iris and Howard Murphet, had been asked by Sai Baba to go back to the USA to study and get all the necessary credentials and experience to be Baba’s personal airplane pilot.

Gerald Joe Moreno and sex oiling by Sai Baba

Posted by robertpriddy on April 20, 2009

In a series of postings Basava Premanand replied cogently and crushingly to pro-Sai attacker Gerald Moreno’s claims made at one of his websites under the title “Sathya Sai Baba – sex oiling & oil manifested, materialized and applied near or on genital region.”

From header of Premanand's articles in reply to Gerald Moreno's assertions on his website

From header of Premanand's articles in reply to Gerald Moreno's assertions on his website

Note that the former head of the Indian Rationalist Association, Basava Premanand, was the recipient of an Indian Presidential award for the dissemination of science and was supported by Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, who was to open his exhibition on ‘The Method of Science’, but was assassinated beforehand.

In several long articles, Basava Premanand replies to Gerald Moreno’s peculiar and unconvincing assertions, as follows:

Gerald Moreno : The fact of the matter is that oilings, from Sathya Sai Baba, do happen

Gerald Moreno: They are a common occurrence and I have known about them since 1988, when I received an “oiling” myself.

Reply : Wonderful to know that GM himself received the oiling and that oiling is a common occurrence. Such a practice is against the laws of civilized countries. Why should Sai Baba and his devotees be beyond the law in this respect?

Gerald Moreno: The majority of people who have had oilings, say SSB applies the oil to their lower abdomen area, between their pubic area and their navel.

Reply by Basava Premanand : I hope GM knows that this area is the most erogenous zone of our body. Who are these majority of people who have had oilings? Who are the rest? Will GM kindly explain how many in his data are included as having been oiled, and detail how he has investigated and arrived at which is the majority and which the minority?

Gerald Moreno backs lying saboteur M. K. Yachendra

Posted by robertpriddy on April 19, 2009

Yachendra (aka Murali Krishna,  the grandson of the Raja of Venkatagiri see here) made a very extended, vicious and constantly lying attempt to sabotage the Sai Exposure work. Firstly he tries to infiltrate it through the International Sai Petition by pretending to be a teacher who had organised students sexually abused by Sai Baba. Since the Sai Petition Administration carefully checks all suspicious stories and avoids posting which are suspicious (or deletes those which are evident sabotage attempts and lies), ‘Murali Krishna’ was totally unsuccessful. He was asked to contact Barry Pittard and Basava Premanand with his ‘information’… this led to a massive exchange of e-mails in which he compounded his lies to such an extent that it is almost incredible anyone would go to such lengths. He claimed that there were plans by the Sai authorities to murder Premanand, that Sai Baba and his officials had massive Swiss bank accounts, that he had organized a large group of students sexually abused by Sai Baba and much more like that…

However, Premanand and Pittard smelled a rat (correctly. indeed) from the start but decided to played up to his pretences, realising that this would be a major exposure of the methods of close Sai Baba devotees – especially one who has been a student and temporary ‘teacher’ at a Sai college and whose family has always had the closest connection to Sai Baba and his authorities.  View the content of some of the very many e-mail contacts with Murali Krishna to appreciate the sheer extent and despicable nature of his lies (which he later admitted – indeed boasted – were lies when he ‘came clean’ on Sai Baba bulletin boards about always having been a totally devoted devotee. What Murali Krishna Yachendra did in different names is documented in the book ‘Sabotage by Murali Krishna Yachendra’ published by B. Premanand (see Indian Skeptic booklist).

Murali Krishna Yachendra is promoted as a genuine and honest person by Gerald Joe Moreno, himself an unreliable and emotionally zealous commentator on all Sathya Sai Baba matters, who defends Sathya Sai Baba and the International Sathya Sai Organization at every turn (see http://www.saisathyasai.com/baba/emails-basava-premanand.html). Moreno is himself a  petition saboteur and unscrupulous attacker of all critics and ex-followers of Sai  Baba – so he and Yachendra are a case of “birds of a feather flock together”.  Moreno has himself also admitted openly that he was “oiled” – oil applied by hand to his “lower stomach” in privacy by Sathya Sai Baba ( see Moreno and sexual abuse, denial and subterfuge) where one can also see the posting he had  for years  on his website stating that he believed Sathya Sai Baba to be a sexual abuser (yet defending in him in every possible way all the while!)

Incidentally, Murali Krishna Yachendra was one of Prof. Erlendur Haraldsson’s main sources in his book ‘Miracles Are My Visiting Cards’. His massive documented lying to Premanand raises serious doubts about how reliable his fanciful accounts were when he was interviewed by Haraldsson.

See Basava Premanand’s account of the entire months long exchanges here
