Sathya Sai Baba on going slowly blind from “sensual pleasures”

Posted by robertpriddy on April 19, 2009

Correcting humanity?

Correcting humanity?

“Today man is putting his senses to misuse and as a result his body is becoming weaker day by day. He shortens his life-span by his unsacred vision and by indulgence in sensual pleasures. Lakhs of light rays in his eyes are being destroyed because of his unsacred vision. That is the reason what man is developing eye defects.” (Sathya Sai Baba, discourse on 5/7/2001 Sanathana Sarathi, August 2001,  p. 226)

 

Comment:  This is the kind of hilarious non-scientific doctrine that students at Sai Baba colleges and ‘university’ have to tolerate. It is so irrational that it could not even qualify as pseudo-science! How many hundreds of thousands of rays of light are being destroyed in people’s eyes, one may ask?

So man shortens his life span? No, there have been vast extensions of human life span made through science and its resultant benefits in recent centuries improvements! Age expectancy has risen progressively in almost all countries in the world, notably excepting Russia since the Soviet State fell and places like Zimbabwe. That man’s body is becoming weaker day by day or his eyes are being destroyed is sheer poppycock! Thatsensual pleasures are the source of physical weakness  – and the root of all evil… is just primitive superstition and base puritan fundamentalism.

 

Bjorn Lomborg writes in his 2001 book “The Sceptical Environmentalist”: “Fewer and fewer people are starving. In 1900 we lived for an average of 30 years; today we live for 67. According to the UN we have reduced poverty more in the last 50 years than we did in the preceding 500, and it has been reduced in practically every country.”So, any shortcomings in world health certainly have quite other causes than unsacred vision!

Interestingly, Sathya Sai Baba has himself admitted that he was blind in one eye for years because of his having an accident with his hair-dryer! I can just see him using his hair-dryer daily.

View a list of a whole range of false and absurd “teachings” – with comments –  by this uneducated villager who claims Divine Omniscience.

Joe Moreno admits he is a web impostor

Posted by robertpriddy on April 18, 2009

Gerald Joe Moreno’s attempts to sabotage the International Sai Petition had some small success before spamming was stopped and every new submission was subjected to full scrutiny when the petition was moved to a new website and I took over the administration of new signatures. Previously I was informed by the former webmaster of the Sai Petition that there had been considerable problems with Sai Baba spammers which the administrators at petitiononline.com had to remove manually one by one – since their system was incapable of blocking IPs except by manual interventions. Those who wrote and administered the petition site were inexperienced and made the error of using the free service, which proved to be subject to spammers. Therefore the petition was moved to a secure website and spammers were removed. Then I took over monitoring signatures (after the first 700 signatures had been listed). Since then all have been vetted, with IPs, locations and submitted e-mail addresses checked. There are now over 1300 signatures from all over the world on it. (See here)

The Sai petition is far from being “bogus” as Joe Moreno sweepingly claims all over the Internet. This because he claims he once managed to post a handful of bogus submissions on it. This does not prove that 1300 signatures are bogus! Without him being able to give any proof of having done so, he might just as well claim to have posted hundreds of the signatures (which he did not, of course), without my thereby releasing the proof he did not – because we promise 100% confidentiality to signers and retain the private data we have about each individual submission. This guarantee excludes those who prove to be spammers or pro-Sai Baba saboteurs (such as: ‘Osama bin Laden’ which was the signature by an Indian Sai devotee traced in London whose IP and location was promptly reported to the Metropolitan Police). Moreno also claims the Sai petition is not legal (which implies “illegal”) though it is as legal as any known on-line petition, including his own pitiful tit-for-tat petition  (where roughly 0.0001% of the officially-claimed number of Sai followers worldwide signed up!)

Gerald Joe Moreno (using the identifier “sathyasaibaba”) himself admits and boasts that he posted bogus names on the Sai petition. This alone places him among Internet trolls and thoroughly dishonest persons! It is well known how criminals can vandalise comment boxes and petitions, hiding behind invented names, using anonymous IPs and so on by using advanced IT techniques.

Oh yes… I admit to an occasional error made in haste and also correct apologetically for it (wholly unlike Joe Moreno  who makes scores of errors in his postings but NEVER apologises for anything). Well, I did misidentify the comment he made under the bogus name Joe Apodaco. The comment I wrongly quoted as under that name was actually posted under another name.  However, this was a simple hasty mistake and neither a sign of “senile dementia” (I am 100% compos mentus and further, fully mentally composed) nor was it “a complete and utter fabrication of facts “ as he presents it, i.e. in the manner of his whole blog reminding  of one of his own favourite adjectives “frothing at the mouth”. Again, he wrote Nowhere did Moreno claim (even indirectly) that he was “sexually abused” by Sathya Sai Baba as falsely and maliciously stated by senile Robert Priddy. ” Moreno never understates his case for he blows up any minor matters he can spin negatively into main issues… that is a key part of his agenda, to divert readers’ attention as much as possible from all the unpleasant facts.

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.

CLICK ON THE ABOVE TEXT TO SEE NON-DEVOTEE JOE MORENO IN HIS SELF-CREATED PINK GLORY

Moreno projects all this own worst qualities onto others – many others… nearly all former devotees of Sai Baba who dare to speak out plainly about the massive deceits and crimes committed. As soon as any one of us makes a  simple mistake, he enthusiastically jumps to the conclusion that we are all lying, whether “blatantly”, “shamelessly” or “bold-facedly” etc.  In his contrived and highly convoluted and embellished attack pages on me he claims that I am a “Liar – Plagiarist –  Propagandist – Embellisher – Fanatic – Shameless thief ” ad inf. – all of which he is, and I am definitely not.  This can be seen by actually visiting my blogs here and my main exposé website – not just reading his highly selective and manipulated representations of what I stand for. These include presenting as my current standpoints various statements I once made when a devotee (about Sai Baba) which I have either thoroughly refuted or modified since, and many other such tricks which he would call “shameless lies”.

Further, it is objectively proved that Moreno has infringed my copyright, which act he calls “shameless theft” – which he has also done on a massive scale – see Copyright infringements by sathyasaibaba) He has done this without my permission and despite registered complaints. (Note,  I have received no complaint about any proven infringement of copyright from any source I may have borrowed from. Unlike Moreno I never infringe copyright of texts, keeping carefully within the limits of fair use. Moreno has countless entire web pages which he has stolen from me and refuses to remove).

I do not lie anywhere, but I am shameless, for I have nothing to be ashamed about.

I have been defended by Alan M. Kazlev, who was once in some agreement with Joe Moreno (no longer!). As a result of Kazlev’s investigations in which he came to defend me rigorously, Moreno set up a major attack campaign against Kazlev to try to assassinate his character, but succeeded only in self-assassination of character. Kazlev has given a fair and insightful assessment of Moreno’s character and agenda (see here)

More revelations about Joe Moreno’s smear campaign against Sathya Sai Baba’s chosen “form boys” and young men and their defenders are to come soon.

More personal attacks by Gerald Joe Moreno

Posted by robertpriddy on April 17, 2009

Gerald Joe Moreno shows increasingly fanatical zeal and reckless puerility in his efforts to defend Sathya Sai Baba by attacking me as a “dirty old man” as having “a fairy-tale mentality (which appears to be the onslaught of senile dementia” etc.) and in many other transparently-fabricated ways. Who will ever believe him? The “fairy-tale mentality” all belongs to Sathya Sai Baba and is promoted on his blogs by Joe Moreno. He who even explicitly long believed Sai Baba  to be a sexual abuser, yet defended him to the extreme! (see documentation below). He has got the wrong person entirely – for example,  it is not me but Sathya Sai Baba who has openly and credibly been accused of sexual abuse by 30 different young men around the world, and it is Sai Baba who was exposed as engaging in oral male sex on TV documentaries as Sai Baba has (and he is obviously afraid to sue the BBC or Danish TV). Indeed,  I am none of the vile things Moreno wants to believe I am.

He always accuses me of the very faults which he has exercised himself to a maximum degree before I ever responded, such as “internet propaganda, libels and complete disinformation.”

Exactly what happened to Moreno in the private interview? The reason for my interest is not prurience but entirely as an investigator and exposer of many described crimes by Sathya Sai Baba. Joe Moreno makes a big deal about not having stated that oil was “massaged” onto his lower stomach (as I claim), saying only that it was “applied”. How then? With a spatula or a sponge? No. It was from Sai Baba’s hand, he has made that clear enough. So was it not rubbed on? (ie. = massaged in?). That way is widely reported by those describing these oil molestations. Joe is VERY cagey indeed about HOW it was applied and exactly how low down, wanting at any cost to escape any idea that he was being ‘groomed’ to see if he would rise to the approach. He says this occurs between the navel and the pubic area… but plenty of others have explained that it includes the genitals. I am not saying that Joe experienced that, but I think Sai baba did take his pants down (he does, according to reports) or told him to do in words or gestures (as other who received his attentions  have described). Or did Sai Baba put his hand inside his pants to reach the lower stomach? Or what? Let Moreno explain himself. Too embarrassing to admit, perhaps, what actually was the case?

That is was illegal sexual molestation, according to professional experts in such matters and according to the law in most countries, including in India, is an objective fact, however pleasurable [yet also inexplicable] Joe Moreno claims it to have been… If so harmless or enriching (?), why did he leave Sathya Sai Baba and not visit him for more of the same?Why does he claim not to be a devotee or follower… yet to defend him to the last ditch?

Slander by Dr. G. Venkataraman & Joe Moreno

Posted by robertpriddy on April 17, 2009

Among the many intentional untruths that has been spun and spread about Barry Pittard and myself is the claim that we somehow are behind the entire exposè of Sathya Sai Baba. This may seem so to those who only glance at the mass of expose evidence. Apart from early whistle blowers like Tal Brooke and others who received little or no publicity, the sexual abuse allegations were brought into the public sphere by David and Faye Bailey – very close to Sathya Sai Baba before they were overwhelmed by evidence and set about investigating and writing about it all. As soon as this appeared on the Internet, this caused many to write accounts, including numerous sexual abuse descriptions which were highly credible in detail and background. I refused to look at any of them until other matters had increasingly caused me serious doubts about Sai Baba since 1998 V.K. Narasimhan told me in secret about the 1993 murders and blackmail of the police by Sai Baba’s brother. This  I kept to myself until well after V.K. N. died in 2000 and was safe from any retribution.  I first posted an article about Sai Baba’s alleged sex abuses in October 2001! There was already a mass of information and debate on this on the www.

Dr. G. Venkataraman, Sai Baba defender

Dr. G. Venkataraman, Sai Baba defender

Dr. G. Venkarataman – head of Radio Sai and member of Sai Baba’s ruling Prashanthi Council – has lied about me on his misnamed “heart-to-heart” website, where he wrote “Robert Priddy who was one of those who started much of this slander claimed that two Vice Chancellors of Universities in Australia supported the allegations.” This is so far the only claim published against my name by any central Sai official. The distinct activity in the exposure of Sathya Sai Baba’s sexual abuses began already from about April 1999  with many testimonies and documented facts about Sathya Sai Baba’s alleged sex abuses, fraud, deceptions – I did not start any of that. The two Vice-Chancellors were contacted before my time by Glen Meloy and Barry Pittard, I have only referred their contacts with them. Since then I have spoken out on many issues known to me (not least through Sai Baba’s close servitor, V.K. Narasimhan – also my close friend and confidante).

Subsequently I was contacted by numerous students describing the sexual abuses they have had – and/or their friends – at the hands by Sathya Sai Baba. This they did in strict confidence (because I can be trusted by them – while Venkataraman most certainly cannot, since he condones the infamous murders and disclaims all the reported abuses and more…).  I am not spreading “slander” but documented facts, recorded experiences and my opinions about them. But now one sees that Venkataraman does about me. I provide sound information! Apropos, Moreno promotes and defends Venkataraman on the Internet, and also posts some of Venkataraman’s writings on his blogsite “Sathya Sai Baba  – Love, Light & Spirituality”. Since G. Venkataraman does not take any issue with this at all, it amounts to a collusive partnership.

Likewise, Barry Pittard’s disaffection was not introduced to the network of ex-followers until shortly after October 1999, having read the article of the former head of the Sathya Sai Organization, Terry Gallagher. Gallagher had scrupulously investigated various allegations at first hand and also confronted Sathya Sai Baba himself. For well over a year after this time Barry Pittard activities were largely separate to my own, and I did not have contact with him until yet later – and then 0nly months later again did I have my first contact with Glen Meloy.  We did not coordinate any work even then – I did not involve myself in any joint project until later when wide participation was invited across former devotee networks.

Among the many instances where Moreno extracts some detail from critical writings to interpret and spin it in the worst possible light, never pausing to consider alternate, common sense explanations, is his frenetic barrage of attacks concerning affidavits stating sexual abuse. He capitalised extensively on the error made by some writers including Pittard in repeating Hari Sampath’s claim (supported by his group of helpers) that he had gathered over a hundred affidavits. In fact the genuine mistake was that these were signed accounts of prime witnesses about sexual abuses but also about related matters, only some of which were formal legal affidavits.

Sathya Sai Baba riches vs. spirituality

Posted by robertpriddy on April 16, 2009

The multi-billion dollar question is not really so much how Sai Baba has generated so much wealth – this is after all not so uncommon with Indian swamis and temples. Reputedly the fabulously richest of all temples in Tirupathi, and not far behind it the Jagannath Temple in Puri. Self-styled ‘Baghwan’ Sri Rajneesh was the possessor of similar undeclared riches before he was indicted on so many charges in the USA (and sold off his 84 Rolls Royces in Texas in one cheap lot to a dealer, but remained super-rich even after that). The Maharishi Mahesh Yogi sect is also rich beyond reckoning, apparently having virtually the economy of a small African country.

The priceless question remains why Sai Baba, who says he so disdains money and property, has ever ruled through the Sathya Sai Central Trust and thereby controls one of the biggest fortunes and  property empires

Disgusting ostentation

Disgusting ostentation

in that land of such poverty and suffering? This wealth may not be his pro forma, but in fact it is his to use as he sees fit. No Director of his Board would ever dare to contradict him or openly contravene his wishes. As a self-styled representative of true spirituality, he is surrounded by riches, pomp, wealth and has not to lift a finger to feed, clothe or do anything else for himself.

That he claims to own nothing is just a way to disarm gullible believers in him , but is merely a technicality of bookkeeping. Even so, it is all beyond public inspection. One asks whether the money has been truly well-employed, or wasted on too great a scale to build yet more temples and to erect other white elephants, mostly to enhance the fame of Sai Baba himself. Questions about the misuse of huge funds expended in building an isolated Super-Speciality Hospital is cogently discussed in Serguei Badaev’s overview of the Sai Baba Super Speciality Hospitals’ wastefulness. If this had not been so, the answer would have been clear and acceptable. Yet the fact remains, Sai Baba’s wealth is used for gaining influence and political power, without having any visible beneficial effects on politics or politicians, and rather to the contrary if the current decline of political honesty at all levels in is considered. It seems unavoidable to conclude that those who think they ‘know’ the answer – that Sai Baba has divinely good plans that no one can fathom – are foundering in flight from the facts, falsehoods and foolishly placed faith.

Joe Moreno – massive internet abuse

Posted by robertpriddy on April 14, 2009

Joe Moreno – a person (without even a college degree) who promoted himself as a ‘researcher’  and who carefully tried to cover his own tracks – spent 5 years or more employed

His last 6 years of life were spent in defending full time Sathya Sai Baba and his Organization at great length against revelations from me and many others, as well as harassing dissidents of several other gurus including Ramana Maharshi, Amma and more. He attacked me  over contrived issues and trivialities also abusing my copyright to a vast extent – posting a whole website of mine and many pages from my writings without permission. So I posted his photo for recognition of him (though he died in June 2010). In his typical tit-for-tat automatic counter-accusations, he claimed that it was I who was an internet abuser, not he! The record speaks entirely otherwise.

Moreno tried to stamp me as a Hitler [ writing "Heil Priddy"], and widely supported his co-worker – the insufferable name-caller, Lisa de Witt, who wrote that I am a fascist, a pervert, an alcoholic, a liar and a “bozo” etc., and who also promoted the idea already years ago that I was dying of AIDS. However, Lisa de Witt actually claims hypocritically to promote love, to be a “healer” and one who channels visions of Jesus, Shirdi Sai Baba and so on!  Nor am I (see here) a person of “colossal ignorance” (see here), as Moreno wrote, with much other unfounded derogation in that vein.

One of his sophistic distortions was that Barry Pittard and I are “cult leaders”. How droll, for it is not us who are heads of any kind of cult, we are apostates from the global religious personality cult Moreno so dirtily defends. Some prominent professional persons who are ex-devotees joined together, including us, to form the JuST group for the purpose of launching   a petition to try to bring Sai Baba and his organization to justice. That – apart from some letters signed by its working committee – is the extent of it. Since we stood forth for the truth about Sathya Sai Baba, over a thousand disaffected followers have contacted us with their stories, knowing that we can be relied on for 100% confidentiality when asked. These are individuals, not a group or cult of any kind.

Moreno’s claims and assertions are a rats’ nest of contradictions, for example, he claimed to have no association whatever with the Sathya Sai Organization yet defended it at every step, but how could he possibly have been in a position to know that it is not exactly as I have described it after nearly 2 decades as a national leader? He is fed propaganda about it, which he posts on his website using the name ‘Sathya Sai Baba’ – Love, Light & Spirituality. It took me and others who had worked for that organization for decades a very long time to penetrate the layers of outright deceit that I found nearly all of its higher office-bearers to be involved in (I was never such a higher office-bearer, since Norway had a very small number of members – less than 20 – and now this number has sunk close to nil).

insidiously, Joe Moreno called me ‘a blatant liar’ many times, obviously without any tangible proof because I can assure all that I never lie. He is fond of childish name-calling and smearing through labeling: egs. he accused me of being a “fundamentalist Christian” (I am 100% agnostic!), an associate of known perverts but only because I support the cogent and very well-informed arguments concerning Sai Baba by an Indian ex-devotee who Moreno claimed – in his massive stalking campaign to ruin that person’s reputation – to have exposed as a “pervert”- including through infamous postings made by Moreno to support his hate agenda on pornography sites – see list of them here).

Sathya Sai Baba’s front man on the Internet

Posted by robertpriddy on April 13, 2009

Hardly any need to point out what any Google search on Sathya Sai Baba shows, that the front man defending Sathya Sai Baba and his Organization on the Internet is Gerald Joe Moreno, whose many websites and blogs include hundreds of attack pages against critics.

Despite Moreno’s oxymoronic claim that the Sathya Sai Organization needs no defending, it has been defended by Dr. G. Venkarataman of Radio Sai and also massively by Moreno himself. This defense was done because of documented evidence and testimony on a large scale of its unaccountability, planned disinformation and deceptions of the public, covering up and ignoring crimes, including murder and sexual molestations of which all its leaders are aware. They have failed to exercise duty of care and ignored mandatory reporting.

Firstly, the former major US Sai Org. leader, Dr. John Hislop, demonstrated fully in the letters he wrote (See here) to numerous top Sai Organization officials at the time around 1981-2. Those letters have been attacked constantly and most tendentiously as being counterfeits by Joe Moreno, but this has been proved not to be so in a signed affidavit by Timothy Conway and by confirmation from the original recipient at the San Francisco Sathya Sai Centre of the copy scanned for the exposee.

Secondly, and not least, the current International Chairman of the Sathya Sai Organization. Dr. Michael Goldstein, the absence of any serious investigation of the many testimonies of sexual abuse or those involved when challenged by the BBC’s Eamon Hardy (now BBC’s Executive Producer for Current Affairs Commissioning) after having interviewed numerous of those around the globe who testify to sex abuses by Sathya Sai Baba.

Moreno and sexual abuse, denial and subterfuge

Posted by robertpriddy on April 12, 2009

Gerald Joe Moreno began his full-time activities in defending the Sathya Sai Organization and Sathya Sai Baba around autumn 2004, starting by trying to sabotage the International Sai Petition – which now has over 1,300 signatories including a large number of former followers and office-bearers). This he could do only during it’s first year or so before it was protected against such spamming by being moved to its present location and subjected to many cross-checks. As usual, Moreno made massive assumptions – mostly entirely false – about the nature of the petition, calling it bogus. His case rested mainly on his having been able to make some false submissions to the petition before it was protected properly from such spamming (in its new location) – including a bogus entry he boasts about having made under the bogus name Joe Apodaco or the like. [Note that Joe Moreno gave no documentary proof he made that entry. However, it was  removed just in case.] That Moreno tried so hard to vandalise the petition with intent to sabotage it shows he is a trickster and flouts all decent civil conventions. He has been unable to continue this since i took over the petition management.

NOTE I have removed a short paragraph from here as it was incorrect (I should not wish for Moreno to be falsely accused of even a minor matter). Joe Moreno was actually abused by Sathya Sai Baba, though he denies that the lowering of his pants and massaging with oil on his “lower stomach” was what the law (even in India) defines it as – sexual molestation when not performed with consent by a doctor of medicine. (See Basava Premanand’s discussion with Moreno on this)

Religious sex abuse is rife: This “anointing of genitals”is a known form of ‘grooming’ for potential sex partners. See the newspaper cutting:

GENITAL OILING CASE IN UK

GENITAL OILING CASE IN UK

Joe Moreno attacks Alaya Rahm for trying to sue Sathya Sai Baba and/or his Organization for money – actually, that is, for compensation and damages. Perfectly legitimate, as the above cutting shows. It has been done by countless religious sex abuse victims with much success, and very rightly so. If Sathya Sai Baba were to be sued successfully in India (that is, if his governmental and Supreme Court protection were to cease) he would owe countless millions of US dollars, more even than the ISCKON Hare Krishna people were (bankrupted in the USA).

For years Moreno actually believed that Sathya Sai Baba was a sexual abuser (see scan below)! Later Moreno went into total denial of this at the first opportunity (the Alaya Rahm lawsuit’s withdrawal), for it had become a totally untenable and embarrassing position for Moreno when compared with his praise of Sathya Sai Baba and huge struggle to defend him against most of the allegations. This despite massive documentation, including numerous proofs of deception from Sai Baba’s own published words.

1) Alaya Rahm testimony about Sathya Sai Baba’s sexual abuses as on documentary film -which he of course has never retracted
2) Major exposure of the Sathya Sai Society of US and Sai Organisation deceits about a US lawsuit by Alaya Rahm
3) Joe Moreno’ on his own oiling by Sathya Sai Baba (scan from his website)

4) Gerald Joe Moreno’s admission of belief in sexual molestation by Sathya Sai Babajoebelief

Authors who praise Sathya Sai Baba

Posted by robertpriddy on April 11, 2009

SATHYA SAI BABA LOVES TO READ ABOUT HIMSELF

Some authors who praise Sathya Sai Baba have reported that he says he reads the books himself. He ‘showers blessing’ on writers who use rose-coloured glasses to see everything having to do with him or his works. Other books about him are less popular with him! Any criticism of him, however constructive or positively intended, is forbidden within his sphere and he can be very angry looking when this occurs. Such writers as Prof. N. Kasturi, V. and Shakuntala Balu, Dr. John Hislop, Howard Murphet (i.e. “not perfect”), Dr. Samuel Sandweiss, Peggy Mason, Phyllis Krystal, Joy Thomas, Rita Bruce, Mario Mazzoleni, Birgitte Rodriguez –  plus a host of  Indian hagiographers who exaggerate on almost every subject are to his taste (and few more so than the other main biographer of Sai Baba, Ra. Ganapati and Smt Vijaya Kumari or ‘Vijayamma’, Anil Kumar,  and Jega Jegathesan).

Virtually all gurus and spiritual masters love and expect paeans of praise and expressions of blind faith, attempts to serve them in the hope of getting spiritual advancement or salvation. Sathya Sai Baba claims he does not want this, but he wallows in it all nonetheless, nothing could be more evident! Sai Baba idolisers are in a class apart for sycophancy and worship of him and his supposed utter holiness and ‘incredible’ miracles.

Pro-Sai authors are always consciously involved in suppressing information about all unfortunate events at the ashrams, of which there are many known to all long-term residents. In  these clinically cleansed texts, neither minor not major crimes that take place are ever described – nor are the numerous suicides, disappearances, mortal accidents, murders – and – above all of course,the murders in Sathya Sai Baba’s bedroom are never remotely mentioned. This is regarded as irrelevant to the divine mission of God Incarnate. (I must admit I also avoided almost all negative facts myself (but not everything) in my pro-Sai book from earlier years – ‘Source of the Dream’ Samuel Weiser Inc. –  but I have made up for that fully by now!)

Often writers do nothing Baba may remotely dislike out of their anxiety that they will lost his grace or even be punished karmically (i.e. by him in his claimed role as Lord of Maya and Karma)! They are always told only to see, hear and speak what is good (it is understood this applies with extra force to anything about Sai Baba) as he often says in his interminable moralising discourses. As a former relative insider of the Sai movement and frequent visitor to the ashrams, I know something of the various trials and tribulations of certain authors with the authorities there. Their  books are mostly noteworthy to me now for what they do not tell or consciously cover up, the level of denial is total! Any tiny thing that might possibly sully Sai Baba’s image or in any way affect his plans (or his organization) is prejudged automatically as equivalent to ‘scandal and rumour mongering’ and is omitted… and if not, it is banned as soon as possible (such as some editions of the magazine ‘Spiritual Impressions’ and the book by Dr. Naresh Bhatia “Dreams and Realities Face to Face with God” –  etc.)

From experience, I am inclined to the opinion that most of them behave thus out of the self-programmed blind faith that Baba inculcates from the start.  This continual self-censorship also arises out of the huge social and political naivety about India common to nearly all foreign devotees. Their motives are not necessarily outright untruthful, but their way of interpreting everything leads them into stating many  half-truths and untruths. This also makes most of them almost psychologically incapable and uncommunicative about their private doubts and anxieties – which many of them will claim do not bother them. The uncertainty and peaceless worrying about how to understand what to do and what not to do are clear to observers of others  in the grip of ideology, esoteric beliefs and cultist practises.

Interestingly, not one of the above-mentioned authors has had the courage – or the decency – to respond to the countless calls for duty of care by alleging victims of sexual abuse by Sathya Sai Baba by contacting them to find out more. Nor have they the courage to to respond to a single critic of Sathya Sai baba on the Internet. This is most likely not least because the Sathya Sai Organization intstructs and enforces this silence (‘muerta’) about the entire cult and the undoubted crimes in which the ashrams and Sathya Sai Baba have been involved.

Sathya Sai Organisation defended by proxy

Posted by robertpriddy on April 5, 2009

Joe Moreno makes numerous false claims about ex-follower critics of Sathya Sai Baba under the wordpress.com title ‘Sathya Sai Baba – Love, Light and Spirituality’, which ‘spiritual’ blog he runs primarily so as to continue his libels and harassments of most critical former followers of Sathya Sai Baba. At last, after 4 years or so, I am currently replying to some of his constant attacks and baseless accusations. Here comes one out of a long series of similar examples of false, contrived pseudo-reasoning on the blog “By Proxy Defenders of Alleged….” etc.)
Excerpt from Joe Moreno’s blog:- legal-grievance

Plenty of parents have come forward against Sathya Sai Baba, and Moreno knows it so well! To name but a few: Sharon Purcell, Diana Scott, the parents of Alaya Rahm, Britt-Marie Anden (head of now disbanded Gothenberg Sai School, her two sons molested)…
Moreno goes to enormous lengths to “protect” and “defend” the Sathya Sai Organization in countless web postings while – in defending it himself in the above, he denies this!   The Sathya Sai Organization is an authoritarian cult – I know, because I eventually left it in relief after ensuring that I had investigated thoroughly and learned many true and wholly indefensible facts about its cover up Sai Baba’s sexual molestation (as even admitted by leaders who remain faithful to him!)  and the cold-blooded murders in which he was inextricable involved. All documentary link information is given at bottom of this page.

As to grievances, Moreno denies that there have been any legal grievances filed in India. Even that is false (see points 1) 2) and 3) below. By specifying India – where grievances of this kind could not get a hearing – he would distract all attention from the countless documented grievances, including  in letters sent to leaders of the Sathya Sai Organization (see links at foot of page). He can never throw journalists or researchers off the scent in this simplistic way. It is the same tactic many Sai organization leaders have used!

1) He knows that Hari Sampath  petitioned the Supreme Court of India, and that it was thrown out on a trumped-up legal technicality by judges who are Sathya Sai followers (see below).

On the right is the crucial document proving that the case against Sai Baba by Hari Sampath was taken to the Supreme Court of India which the court authorities removed illegally (to foil the British Ambassador’s research) but was recovered and verified by affidavit later on:-

Read more – the facts on the court issue?

2) Moreno also knows full well that there have been many grievances with a legal basis against Sathya Sai Baba, as is fully documented in the Indian Skeptic through the years, not least court petitions by Basava Premanand (i.e. the case where the judges claimed Sai Baba materialises gold from thin air and hence is not subject to the law under the Gold Control Act)

3) It is convenient for Moreno to ignore that the ex-follower from Germany, Jens Sethi, filed an affidavit against Sai Baba with the Hamburg police, as he knows too. Or that Alaya Rahm did in the USA, and his lawyer asked if the court would sue Sai Baba but the judge rejected that because this had to be done in India.

4) Moreno always deviously overlooks everything which is documented but is against his agenda of denial of everything against Sathya Sai Baba. He definitely knows that the CBI investigated the murders of 1993 due to complaints about the Puttaparthi police cover-up and sabotage to cover up for Sathya Sai Baba. He is also informed that this was quashed by the Home Minister S.B. Chavan’s intervention with the backing of the PM Narasimha Rao. Moreno tries to cover this severe corruption up and never in any way mentions the known  protection by the Indian government, judiciary and Prime Ministers and Presidents. He performs mental double backward somersaults to settle on most of his standpoints.

Intimidation and bribery by Sai officials have so far worked to quash almost every grievance concerning sexual abuses, financial scams, and to terrorise the parents of murdered sons (in Sai Baba’s bedroom at Prashanthi Nilayam ashram in 1993). Such was done against Dr. Naresh Bhatia, as reported by the Daily Telegraph, and also tried against Basava Premanand and Hari Sampath, who have both survived assassination attempts.   Officials even  removed some court registers  from the records (as in the case of the document removed by the Supreme Court of India, though a copy was kept by the petitioner, Hari Sampath – see scan of affidavit below on this blog)

Summary of undeniably facts about the 1993 murders in Sai Baba’s bedroom and the quashed CBI case

The autocratic and unaccountable Sathya Sai Organization is analysed here, while many documents show the undemocratic and clandestine nature of its structure and behaviours here

The many and highly credible and well investigated sexual abuse allegations through many years are detailed  here -

Voluminous information on the infamous 1993 murders of Sai students is found here
So much for Moreno’s vain and inglorious attempt to mislead everyone!

Letters were  sent to diverse Sathya Sai Organization leaders on sexual abuse by Sathya Sai Baba:
from   Ella EversShirley Pike - Britt Marie Anden –  To Sathya Sai Baba from Conny Larsson -Leaders of the Sathya Sai Organization have been written to many time, also in open letters on the Internet.

Among the very few answers ever received are the infamous Hislop letters, where Diana Scott’s complaint is replied to by Hislop. The complaints made to Dr. Michael Goldstein – and what he did – were told by Al Rahm in the BBC documentary ‘The Secret Swami’ see video clip here’

Letter concerning what Dr. Hislop, international chairman, was told by C. Larsson

sathyasaibaba in the shadows

Posted by robertpriddy on April 4, 2009

Moreno tries to remain as anonymous as possible wherever he can; which helps to gives the (false) impression that he is in the company of more others like himself interested in defending Sathya Sai Baba and his Organization by attacking their critics. Apropos this, out of the vaunted 60 million Sai followers (claimed by The Sathya Sai Organization as a minimum number! Or, absurdly, 600 million nowadays), only a relatively microscopic number visit his webpages and blogs and only a few of his ‘libel-disciples’ (like his most close cooperator, the unspeakable Lisa de Witt, plus the webmaster of saibabaofindia.com and sometimes a few pro-Moreno abusive trolls) have openly joined his efforts. This shows what I have always held, that most foot soldiers in the Sathya Sai Organization are decent enough not to join him, even though they are deceived by Sathya Sai Baba and will not take the massed evidence that has been published against him into account.

Joe Moreno Very Shy of Personal Publicity Since he began his defamation campaign against hundreds of Sai critics (former devotees and in numerous cases also their families, their friends and associates, occasionally even their livelihoods) and not long after, he removed his photo from his website at vishvarupa.com. He had posted it along with an account about himself and his visit to the ashram – and the private interview room – of Sathya Sai Baba (and his ‘oiling’ by him). Later he removed this as too compromising – but it was too late as it is downloaded and in good keeping. Since then he has religiously concealed all other particulars about himself. He claims falsely that his address and phone number were always available simply because his name was known. However, there are hundreds of Gerald Morenos in America and it took some experts who helped out considerable work to discover and verify that he is the one in Las Cruces, New Mexico – plus address and phone number. Yet Moreno asserts – as usual through guesswork and wrongly – that it was Øjvind Kyrø, the Danish journalist and documentary maker, who discovered these facts by normal means. Not so at all! His address and phone number were first published on ExBaba.com, where my address and phone number have been on-line since before Moreno appeared. However, on a website he also claims the opposite! Is this inability to research or could it be his wilful deception? Let observers decide.

 

CLICK ON THE IMAGE ABOVE to see his actual face – ca. from 10 years ago. Joe Moreno is not a devotee but is the main defender of all Sathya Sai matters The major and unrepentant infringer of copyright – countless photos of critics and texts of mine – rails at length about ONE SINGLE photo which he for some reason is rather desperate to hide away.

Moreno soon became very shy of stating any true facts about himself, no doubt because he would cover up the extent of his massive campaign of character assassination, dirt-throwing, web stalking, libels etc. He has often avoided using his most known username (joe108) in favour of unidentifiable ones like Equalizer, sheilawaring, or – for most people less identifiable ones like visvarupa 108, SSS108 (on Wikipedia) GM, JM, GJM with or without the 108 suffix and so on All were gradually identified as being his. He has also used diverse IPs in his e-mails and comments, as has been documented on various occasions, though he tries to deny it, the proofs are there for any eventual further use. He denied he was equaliser until exposed definitively as such, and he denies that he posted on Netscape under the username sheilawaring – but he is exposed as having done that just after he had been banned under a previous pseudonym like JM108).


Joe Moreno would erase his tracks
He has made considerable efforts to get his image removed from websites and wordpress.com – here is a link to one such website (click on the image).
Having removed his personal account and any details about himself from his vishvarupa.com  website, Moreno still defends the convicted murderer and rapist Swami Premananda (double life sentence confirmed by Supreme Court Appeal) at vishvarupa.com, though he has removed former materials about that too! Moreno claims he has nothing to do with the Sathya Sai organization whatever, though he defends them at every turn of events.

Copyright infringements by sathyasaibaba

Posted by robertpriddy on April 3, 2009

MORENO IS FORCED TO REMOVE STOLEN MATERIALS

MORENO IS FORCED TO REMOVE STOLEN MATERIALS – his ignorant claim that I had “drug-induced hallucinations” is false

MORENO WAS FORCED TO REMOVE STOLEN MATERIALS (see copy of notice of infringement from wordpress). The emotional Mr. Moreno called me a “thief” because my website used some meta-tags borrowed from his – but meta-tags are common property, not copyrighted, for they are available to anyone! A helper of mine at that time tried out some of his meta-tags to see if they were useful, but later
I removed them as ineffective.

Moreno responded by posting an entire website of mine on one of his websites – the purpose being to compete on Google keywords and crowd my pages out if possible. He no doubt imagines that presence on Google compensates for his transparently deceptive and weak mudslinging. To compound his “thefts” , he then also posted new links to the same copyright materials on other blogsites he owns, and he posted more copyright materials from my published book (‘Source of the Dream’) on http://indiainteracts.com. So much for honesty, let alone “Love, Light and Spirituality”, the misleading title of his blog, which has masses of blog pages with  his usual libels and wilfully false claims.

excerpt from Moreno's blog

excerpt from Moreno’s blog. There is more of the same there as usual.

Copyright hypocrisy by Moreno In one of his countless attacks on me – Moreno accuses me of what he has himself done, to remove biographical materials from his website. He does not at all know what I “feel” or why I removed mine, only what he wants to believe is fact (his common trait)!  I removed some articles I had written on a website of mine before 1990 because at the time I had only 20Mb space on the server I was using. Facts about my LSD-25 experience is posted in revised form with appropriate comments at The Psychedelic Experience and its effect on my life by Robert Priddy. I have posted masses of biographical information so readers may find out all about me. For example, see this index of my many personal pages here and read about my involvement in the Sai Baba exposee  here, Meanwhile I suspect that Moreno, will most likely continue to suppress all details he has removed about himself. He tells a little as possible about himself, his motives and nothing about his background.

Yet another false assumption by Moreno Last year, my wife decided that Moreno’s use of my otherwise unavailable articles in the sole attempt to defame me and through argumentum ad hominem try fallaciously to cast doubt on my credibility (and even my sanity) was unfair, so she lodged complaints about this, which were independently forwarded to Google, lunarpages etc. I only put my physical signature to the document required. So Moreno made more (typical) false assumptions and presented them as solid fact. And he claims to be doing “research”! All he does is trawl the Internet and its archives.

On LSD-25 and alleged “drug-induced hallucinations” Moreno makes false assumptions in dismissing LSD-25 experiences merely as induced hallucinations – it is very far from being so simple. Hallucinations can occur as a result of LSD, but they did not in my case. I was a student interested in psychiatry and psychology and my dose of LSD-25 was actually provided by the Norwegian Minister of Health explicitly for experimental purposes!  Only one who has experienced it can have any idea at all of what inner clarity and scope of the mind may be released, if one is well-balanced and fortunate in the circumstances. In that I was in company with many well-known writers and hands-on researchers on the subject (egs. Aldous Huxley, Gerald Heard, Professor Susan Blackmore etc. ) The dangers are considerable for borderline psychotics and others, so experiments are definitely not to be recommended to the public.

Incidentally, Moreno’s server [lunarpages.com] refuses to accommodate the U.S. Digital Millenium Act in removing proved copyright materials from their web clients’ Moreno’s pages, and he has very many of mine there… he has in fact posted a whole website of mine since my complaint.

Only now am I posting these responses for the record so as not to leave entirely unanswered Moreno’s fanatical harassment and overweening ‘whining’ (a favourite put-down of his against critics of Sai Baba,  along with ‘blathering’) Let readers decide whom these adjectives best fit.

Please note: Having looked more closely at the web pages on LSD-25 I had first linked to here I found them partly very misleading and that there was an overall bias towards possibly dangerous viewpoints, though there was also nonetheless a good deal of accurate historical and other materials in them and/or linked to them.  As a whole those pages do not represent my standpoint, therefore the link is deleted.

Moreno dares not show his face. Why?

Posted by robertpriddy on April 2, 2009

CLICK ON THIS IMAGE TO SEE PHOTO OF MORENO – the ONE SINGLE photo which he for some reason is rather desperate to hide away.

Ever since shortly after he first appeared as a pro-Sai obfuscator (and saboteur of the International Sai petition with bogus and untruthful submissions and comments) in 2004, Gerald Joe Moreno has tried to hide his face and cover his tracks on the Internet. He posted his website via an Indian third party web service to make locating his server undiscoverable to non-technical Internet users. This was nonetheless traced to U.S. server lunarpages.com, where libelous websites by him are still hosted.

From the start Moreno posted a photo of my son Kai and me, which is my copyright. When asked to remove it he refused point blank with absurd excuses (see http://www.saisathyasai.com/baba/emails-kai-priddy.html) and soon set about viciously attacking my son (who is totally uninvolved with any Sai criticism) in web pages trawling every possible association he could trace, though my son had no part in the things he managed to find remotely related, such as through a band in which he used to perform decades ago. Moreno uses photos of me and my son without permission despite our requests of removal. Yet he tries his utmost to get the one available image of himself removed!

Copy of joe's e-mail to K.R.D. Shepherd

Copy of Joe’s e-mail to K.R.D. Shepherd. It did not achieve the desired result.

When his photo was posted on the web by the scholar he has attacked vitriolically – Kevin Shepherd – he complained in an e-mail and said he would contact Shepherd’s server to remove it. He did not succeed. Recently, after Moreno continued his graphic attacks on me, such as by manipulating my image in cartoon fashion – a penchant of his and not the kind of thing any or defender of ‘spirituality’ or decent ‘researcher’ would ever do – which he fatuously claims to be (he is just an Internet trawler). Therefore I considered it meet to post his photo so that people – not least Sai Baba devotees – could see with whom they may be dealing. I did so on wordpress.com, knowing that it is possible to get wordpress to remove copyright materials (for which they have a singular honour, since Google has not complied with many proven requests). Since I received an infringement notification from wordpress.com that some blogs of Moreno on wordpress had been removed at my request, I fully expected Moreno to complain against me in tit-for-tat fashion as usual, and he did! Mark of wordpress.com mailed (18 March 2009) to warn me that the person in the image I used several times had complained and asked for its removal! So far I have not complied… Moreno claimed that he had been asked to remove the blogs in question, and that had done so himself (not admitting any wrong doing, of course), but the infringement notice made very clear he had NO OPTION. (More on this later)

sathyasaibaba, Munchausen and sick fantasies

Posted by robertpriddy on April 2, 2009

Gerald Joe Moreno and the Munchhausen syndrome. More comic relief for curious readers from Mr. Moreno in the form of this:-

joemunch

Provoked by being called a proxy defender of Sathya Sai Baba and his Organization, which he most certainly is according to much English common usage, Joe Moreno sought succor in his accustomed on-line dictionary definitions. Checking this, the word ‘proxy’ yielded, among much else, the Munchhausen syndrome. So – this would-be budding amateur psychiatrist [without any qualifications] must have thought – ‘I can just as well imply strongly that Pittard and Priddy are suffering from that’, but I shall not say so outright’. So this self-proclaimed “researcher” and “neutral observer” Joe Moreno, again avoided any factual evidence pro or con and creatively made another of his under-achieving schoolboy-level taunts.It is almost superfluous to point out his total lack of balance, insight, consistency and honesty… it glares everywhere at all but (Sai-) blinded readers from his own pages.

Munchhausen was a famous literary fabulator of fantastic claims and stories. One must admit, however, that he was nowhere near Sathya Sai Baba in the magnitude and falsity of his claims (no one who lived ever was) and perhaps not even as inventive as some Sai followers in their fantasy-packed perceptions, interpretations and beliefs.

Moreno’s technique of debate shows itself to be, that – having almost nothing true or tenable to say, shout almost anything as loud and as often as possible (i.e. by Internet means)  – that way he may drown out the oppositions by shouting out that it is them who are shouting.

Further, Moreno has written that Robert Priddy, Barry Pittard and Brian Steel are all septuagenarians. Pittard is not yet 70 by a long shot. With his boast of accurate research and making mountains out of molehill errors of this kind, Moreno should be more careful. He is an ageist – having also called me ‘prematurely senile’ and ‘half-senile’ which – unlike Sathya Sai Baba now – I am most certainly not. He bases this on a few lesser slips of my pen. He makes many such errors – too many to waste time commenting on –  but never admits nor corrects his errors, while I always correct and admit my former errors in many blogs and pages. He claims that I never correct or admit anything… that is his technique all along. So….

What of Gerald Moreno’s psychological profile?

sathyasaibaba specious claims and self-defeating ‘arguments’

Posted by robertpriddy on April 1, 2009

Joe Moreno sees “Proxy Defenders” and “Proxy Defamers” In a show of twisted pseudo-logic, false assumptions and untrue claims, this full-time character assassinator tries to show that Barry Pittard can have no support from those we help defend concerning the sexual abuses by Sathya Sai Baba they have reported, and therefore we are “self-appointed proxy defenders” etc. That we have no support is Moreno’s baseless assumption. We have been defending the weak and defenseless subjects of the sexual abuses they have informed us about against vicious attacks on them in web pages and by a massive e-mail campaign to many of their contacts, friends and families by Moreno himself.

We actually have been asked and strongly supported in exposing these matters by a number of them and some of their families – apart for many other e-mails and comment writers on ExBaba.com, not least the Rahm family, Conny Larsson, Ullrich Zimmermann, to name but a few.  We do not release the countless e-mails and letters, or phone calls because we have most often been asked for and have guaranteed confidentiality. This is partly because many can put themselves at risk of serious consequences (i.e. those who live in or have to visit `India). Not only have Sai students been murdered in cold blood in Sai Baba’s bedroom while he stood by, but Moreno himself has exerted himself stupendously to libel, spread gossip and contradict without any evidence more than 30 alleging victims in web pages, blogs and postings on boards, portals and defamatory comments galore to articles all over the Internet… a despicable attempt to harm people we know to be genuine and truthful after years of contact with many of them. So much for “Sathya Sai Baba Life, Love & Spirituality” and Sai Baba’s “Help ever, harm never”, “Love all, Serve all”

From Joe's blog "By Proxy Defenders..."

From Joe’s blog “By Proxy Defenders…”

See how Joe Moreno makes a great fuss about Pittard and I not having seen abuse by Sathya Sai Baba, and not having been present to any abuse. So what? Acts of which people are guilty are convicted by persons who were not witnesses, often only on forensic or circumstantial evidence. Sathya Sai Baba has been charged in the Supreme Court, but he is protected by the Government and judiciary and cannot be brought to book within India. Moreno seems to promote the almost pathological ‘solipsistic’ idea that not witnessing an event personally disqualifies one from evaluating it through the evidence and testimony, following this up through contacts and questioning and reporting about the results. Patently absurd!

Moreno slips up in saying we have NEVER (ever) been abused! We HAVE been abused – though not sexually – but by a despicable and far-reaching break of trust by Sathya Sai Baba. Many others have experienced this as abuse!  I have been wrongfully deceived on many counts – both by Sathya Sai Baba himself and his minions.  As to “psychologically unstable conspiracy theorists” Moreno supposes us to be (with no evidence because there is none, of course!)… well, that claim is surely what Moreno himself immaturely likes to characterise as “blathering” and “frothing at the mouth”.  Moreno charges Pittard and me as being “cult leaders” which is an acrobatic reversal of the truth, typical of virtually all Moreno’s more preposterous claims. It is the Sathya Sai Baba personality and religious cult that is the problem, not us! We were both once devoted workers for the Sathya Sai project, but we learned the truth about him. Joe Moreno claims he is not a follower and does not believe Sathya Sai Baba is an omniscient avatar etc. He long believed that SB is a sexual abuser… and I have indicated partly why. He is in deep psychological denial, as his thousands of web pages/blogs/comments and constant disruptive stalking activities of most Sai critics by him prove to the hilt.

Why this perpetual backward pseudo reasoning from Moreno? It is a case of total denial of a compulsive kind. Moreno has himself described how his pants were lowered by Sathya Sai Baba lowered  and he was ‘oiled’ on his “lower stomach”. Since this was not done by a doctor under consent, it was sexual interference without explanation (‘grooming’ or testing for an erection) which objectively amounts to himself having been molested sexually (according to Indian law). Moreno did not perceive it as such, but few who go into the private room behind closed doors believing Sathya Sai Baba to be a divinity seldom do. The attention he felt this amounted to gave him a great lift, and he has stated that no one before Sai Baba had taken any notice of him! Few tell openly what happened, and Sai Baba warns most not to tell. This prominent fact in Moreno’s story is one which we may be allowed to question further, as has Basava Premanand in confronting Moreno’s defamations.  One obviously asks “how low”? Embarrassment in telling the facts accurately can fairly be assumed. Why? A well-known British author – and Oxford graduate – wrote in a popular work on Indian spirituality etc. that Sathya Sai Baba rubbed oil on his chest – but he later actually admitted to me in an e-mail that it was actually on the perineum – that is, the spot between the gonads and the anus! I have so far spared him further embarrassment by not publishing his name and providing documentation (which I do have).
