The Secret Swami summary by Robert Priddy – video clips
Posted by robertpriddy on May 27, 2010
The BBC film ‘Secret Swami’, shown to an audience of millions in Britain and – later on BBC World was, according to BBC World in countless million homes around the globe. It was hailed unanimously by the British press as an important documentary masterpiece, rated pick of the week by many UK national newspapers. Read the UK Press reviews here:
The film is entirely credible, revealing the experiences of a former long-term devotee family whose lives were ruined for many years by Sai Baba’s most despicable and threatening paedophile sexual abuse of their son, Alaya Rahm. One must see this to understand their authenticity and hear the account of this family and another ex-devotee who was pressured into oral sex (see short video clip in wmv) in 1976 by this self-pronounced chaste God Incarnate who has constantly claimed to be pure and incapable of untruth… come to save humanity! Sai Baba abuses were testified as including oral sex and an attempt at anal sex. Sai Baba threatened the under-age boy. Alaya, with cutting of his penis if he did not do what he was told… and made awful threats besides, tried to bribe him to silence with large sums of money and many worthless trinkets claimed by Sai Baba to be very precious metals and gems (which were not!). However, the BBC production team informed ex-devotees that they could only show a tiny fraction of the 80 hours of film footage, including numerous Sai-abused young men.
Sathya Sai Baba is a visibly broken man who collapsed after the trial of his transparent faking of ‘regurgitating an egg-shaped golden ‘lingam’ under the cameras. No shadow of doubt remains that he faked the “miracle” of the lingodbhava (very clear footage shows this) inserting the object into his mouth with a towel before it ‘emerged’. This is the clear message left in the minds of sensible viewers who have not been indoctrinated with the insupportable avatar claims. (Why could the avatar not influence the outcome? Answer:Because he could not).
The top leader of the world-wide Sai Organisation, ‘Dr.’ Michael Goldstein (filmed with hidden camera!!) came across very definitively as a most distasteful ranting person with a heavy self-promoting ego (he boasted that he is a “consummate professional” a doctor who says he can tell who has or has not been sexually abused by looking at their eyes!) His otherwise comical performance of blinded and hypocritical faith and film of his duped duplicity was entertaining enough! Goldstein showed himself to be a nasty piece of work, haranguing the young lady interviewer forcefully and flatly refusing to investigate the widespread allegations of severe sexual abuse, which is his duty of care responsibility, both as a doctor and the top leader of the International Sai Baba Organization.
Goldstein ran neck and neck in the hard-to-like golden conceit stakes with the Indian ex-Minister of Human Resources, Murali Manohar Joshi! And THAT takes some doing! Such an arrogant and ignorant Indian Minister of Education would be hard to find. (He even funded astrology with Government funds… the human resource that superstitious India least needs. He is known as a great protector of cows, but not of defenseless boys at the Sai Colleges. Indian ex-Minister of Human Resources, Murali Manohar Joshi showed all the makings of a Gauleiter! Such a distasteful prig in total denial having served (with much pomposity) as Minister of Education is very worrying for the future of India. At least he was booted firmly out of power, but there are evidently plenty more where he came from. In short, two pompous and angry big shots’ facades blown away!
The former multi-millionaire Issac Tigrett (Hard Rock Cafe founder) was interviewed and evidently did so with the coming publicity for himself well in focus (as he remarked on this to the interviewer). He came across as the proud and hard-rock Sai-fanatic he is, laughing in a near-maniacal way quite out of place and admitting that he believes the sex allegations are true and it makes no difference whatever to his faith! Nor, he added, would even murder by Sai Baba affect him negatively! Are these “human values”? Tigrett comes over as mentally and spiritually more and more deranged. Everyone who see this (except conscienceless cowards – persons of weak character and pitiful self-deceivers) are recoiling in revulsion at this, and he is one of the few prominent Westerners left at the Sai ashram in 2010, but jealous Indian officials are reported as still trying to dislodge him.
Sai Baba is exposed by the BBC as a major deceiver, very very rich on donations and and politically extremely influential to the top of Indian government. Cold-blooded executions that police carried out in his bedroom are also investigated in the documentary and one of the new Ministers speaks out and explains that the case was quashed before any outcome should be reopened. See transcript etc. of Interview with V.P. Nair
The presenter, Tanya Datta, went to the Indian Embassy in New Delhi, who confirmed that none other than Sathya Sai Baba was the target of the U.S. State Department Travel warning for South India, Andhra Pradesh, which remained in force unaltered for over 6 years. The US authorities have never stated any formal withdrawal of the warning’s validity, which would have also required them to make an apology for promoting false information.
