Author admits genital oiling by Sathya Sai Baba

Posted by robertpriddy on October 6, 2009

Cover-up of oiling of genitals by author P.W. Roberts, which he later admitted:
This case illumines the difficulties in speaking up about sexual molestation. The British-Canadian author Paul William Roberts, a confirmed Sai Baba devotee, was clearly too embarrassed about what happened to him in a Sai Baba private interview to describe it for what it was.  In his book on spirituality in the East
Roberts described how Sai Baba  applied oil to him ”on the chest”. Roberts was then in his early twenties. (See last page but one of ‘Empire of the Soul’ Chapter 3 (p. 37 in original Canadian edition, 1994. US edition 1996) which is paraphrased and also directly quoted here:

Interview. P.W. Roberts feels Sathya Sai Baba’s love. Baba tells him all about his life and gives a breakdown of his personality. Then Sai Baba circles his hand and “a white oily substance” appears “in his palm”. “Somehow, I knew what he wanted to do, so I lifted my shirt and let him rub this substance into my chest. I kept thanking him profusely.” The next few days are spent in a daze of happiness and are a blur to Paul William Roberts.

Years later, Paul William Roberts circulated an e-mail to a number of devotees telling them that this was a full scale genital oiling. He reaffirmed this in an e-mail in July 2004, and confirmed having written the first one and stated that it can be circulated to other devotees. [All these e-mails can be produced if required before any court]. A quote from that e-mail follows:-
”My experience does in fact include genital contact. Baba materialized some kind of white ointment and rubbed in onto my perineum. It was done in a very maternal manner. He looked away while he was doing it and made no actual contact with my penis or scrotum. It was not remotely sexual and reminded me of a nurse performing a routine procedure.” The supposed “routine procedure” according to Roberts’ e-mail description resulted in cosmic consciousness. However, it is of not that many who used mescaline, LSD-25 and numerous other such chemicals have experienced what they also perceived to be unlimited cosmic consciousness. Experts report that ingestion of drugs takes only a matter of seconds or minutes when applied to the perineum, for they are absorbed directly into the bloodstream as if injected (this is why many medical drugs are applied via ‘suppositories‘ too). This may well explain what Roberts’ experienced.

(Note: the ‘perineum’ is the sensitive area between the genitals and the anus!). Seeing that a widely-respected journalist and author like P.W. Roberts completely misrepresented the nature of the oiling by Sai Baba in his book and let this stand for many years uncorrected (as it remains today), yet later confirmed in his widely-circulated e-mail to devotees how he had in fact covered up the embarrassing fact, you may imagine how difficult many find telling the true state of affairs. As to Roberts’ subjective belief about his not having been subjected to any sexual act, it is of similar kind to Moreno’s in his writing of his ‘not having a clue’.
Note too that Paul William Roberts was accorded what is thought in Sai circles to be the signal honour of teaching at Sai Baba’s Vidyagiri Deemed University in Puttaparthi.He was therefore deeply involved for a longish period.
