Sathya Sai Baba oils genitals (boys/young men) Part 1
Posted by robertpriddy on October 4, 2009
It is now a wholly undisputed fact, even among many leading devotees (for example, the European Central Coordinator of the Sathya Sai Organisation, Thorbjørn Meyer) that Sathya Sai Baba takes down the trousers of many young men and boys and handles their genitals intimately, rubbing on oil and sometimes also so-called ‘holy ash’. Many report that he also rubs vigorously so as to (try to) cause an erection, also sometimes kissing them voluptuously on the mouth. That any such things took place at all was long covered up by a number of top leaders in the Satya Sai Organisation! In civilised countries, the touching of genitals under such circumstances is an illegal, punishable action unless carried out by a doctor on prior consent of the patient. A number of Indian devotees have actually said that they see no wrong in this or any other sexual abuse of young males, because God Himself can do no wrong! Some have fanciful theories about it awakening spiritual powers, one even condones all forms of sexual abuse as needful karma (see here)
The Danish Sathya Sai Organization Central Co-ordinator, Thorbjørn Meyer admits it takes place, called this act by Satya Sai Baba an “age old Indian oiling ceremony”, without being able to produce even a fragment of documentation for this from Indian scripture or reliable historical sources. A close family member has written to me that even Meyer’s own younger son was oiled on the genitals by Sai Baba, also while under the age of consent at 14 years! He was also instructed not to tell his father! Thorbjørn Meyer has not deigned to explain why a number of victims of these strictly unlawful interventions have been subjected to the molestation “ceremony” several times, and have never been asked if they wish for it or what it may or may not signify.
Another Danish ‘Sai-VIP’, Jørgen Trygved admitted on National Danish TV News that these oilings take place. Other Danish leaders have also admitted, one way and another, that genital oiling is done by Sathya Sai Baba. Trygved stated that the is intended to reduce the sexual energies of young men. These “spiritual leaders” have not explained how this oil works, how they know anything about it or why has ever reduced a testosterone level. Nor can they say why women have been wholly excluded from these supposedly stupendous blessings from the ‘living Avatar’.
Here is what an authority on Hindu mysticism has to say about the matter:
|Regarding this “kundalini raising” matter, there is NOTHING in the literature I’ve ever seen from the Hindu, Buddhist or Taoist tantric traditions or Hindu shaktipat guru traditions – and I have read widely and extensively in this literature – about “raising the kundalini” by sexually molesting male youth. It is a bald lie that Sri Ramakrishna initiated Narendranath (Swami Vivekananda) or anyone else in this manner. The accounts all state quite clearly that he would touch the disciples on the chest or head. He wasn’t taking
them off in private to massage or suck the penis or have male youth do the same to him. I have an extensive library of many rare Buddhist, Taoist and Hindu works (in addition to a huge collection of works from western mystical traditions) and I’ve NEVER read anything that would suggest that what SSathya Sai Baba is doing to male youth has been done by ANY other spiritual master in any tradition. Again, I wrote my M.A. thesis on the cross-cultural phenomenon of shaktipat or “energy empowerment” and I’ve never seen any document that alleged that the “kundalini” or vital force or subtle energy could or should be awakened in this manner.
The question exposing the faulty logic here is that, if the kundalini could be raised in this manner, why isn’t SSathya Sai Baba providing the same service for less attractive young men, or older men, or any females? Barry, please feel free to send this posting to anyone on your list who is either sympathetic or critical of SSathya Sai Baba. It’s time for the truth to be told about this matter of the kundalini and Sathya Sai Baba.Best wishes to all, Dr. Timothy Conway. Santa Barbara, CA USA.
