Suicides for ‘not getting Sai darsan’ etc.

Posted by robertpriddy on September 28, 2010

Deaths by accident, suicides and murders have occurred quite regularly at Sathya Sai Baba ashrams or in connection with his darshan (or lack of it). Even his closest servitors have suffered unnecessarily and died in great pain (Prof. Kasturi, V.K. Narasimhan, Kutumb Rao), while his biggest donor’s wife, Barbara Sinclair, died in a taxi crash on her way to see Sathya Sai Baba who had called her specifically from the US. A lady was slashed to death in her new room at Prashanthi Nilayam, and a number of foreigners have been reported as having disappeared without trace over the years. Three devotees died in an easily avoidable accident when the dome of the Spiritual Heritage Museum came crashing down on them. One of his favorite students died in a car wreck, another’s body was found burned in Puttaparti (see Cover-up of Murder at the Sathya Sai College, Puttaparthi, and so on and on. Not to forget the murder of two of his servitors and subsequent execution of the four devotees in his own bedroom in 1993! The list of suicides connected to Sathya Sai Baba is considerable (see examples here) and below:-

Beatings, torture and killings by Police in India

Posted by robertpriddy on September 25, 2010

Some graphic proofs of the bestiality of Indian police - a widespread state of affairsPolice bestiality, legal and official corruption in India today

India’s government has spent billions of dollars (some – incl. the BBC – report  it may eventually amount to 50 billion) on the Commonwealth Games – wealth that should instead have been for the common people instead in this land of the greatest human calamities. The Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh and his minions (himself a devout follower – no less – of the self-proclaimed omnipotent God Incarnate Sathya Sai Baba), have constantly ignored calls to clean up the filth prevailing in the competitors’ quarters, and now are trying to save the games. Britain has decided to send its sportspeople there – despite the lawlessness, unsafe infrastructure, prevalent contagions and the constant mindless beating up in public by police of innocents (not excluding foreigners), not least because they do not want to lost valuable business contracts and alienate the Indian ‘brown sahibs’ further. Commonwealth countries should rather tell India to clean up their disastrously brutal police force, their corrupt and elitist judiciary and the sheer deceit practised by some Indian gurus they actually protect to the full (i.e. Sai Baba). (Funnily, however, gullible devotees of Sai Baba have actually enthused over him having privately prophesied the Olympics in 2020 will be held in India and also around his ashram in Andhra Pradesh!)

Police in India are guilty of widespread human rights violations, including beatings, torture and killings, a new report alleges Human Rights Watch spent a year investigating claims of human rights violations to compile the 118-page report, entitled “Broken System: Dysfunction, Abuse and Impunity in the Indian Police”.

However, the gradually awakening wider Indian public rose in anger and have made this a landmark case in bringing some accountability to police chiefs in India. This cover-up is but one of hundreds of similar reported cases of unpunished police killings and massive brutality in the past decade. The most serious police executions and cover-up, which Indian governments continue to cover-up. was the police executions in cold blood of four devotees in Sathya Sai Baba’s bedroom apartment. The cover-up for this constantly self-proclaimed God Incarnate and world saviour is to protect the reputation of India’s five Prime Ministers, four Presidents, the judiciary and many top people in India others who had already worshipped this widely accused pedophile, sex abuser and proven ignoramus plus murder accomplice for decades before he was exposed.

India bashing?

As Barry Pittard has written: “
“When critics point out the mass of contradictions and the vast corruptions in India, conscienceless attackers such as the Sathya Sai Baba man, Gerald Moreno of New Mexico, USA, allied with some of Sai Baba’s notable followers, who stay in the background, they are said to be “India bashing”. What the former devotee and other critics point out has long been stated by many courageous and truthful Indian citizens down many decades. It may be hoped that these forces of decency and efficiency in India will be aided by the glaring world spotlight which has all too suddenly swung on the many corrupt and befuddled Indian leaders because she is hosting the Commonwealth Games”.

Gerald Moreno, allied with some of his low-minded followers who all try to stay in the background, tries to portray myself and Pittard  as India bashers and haters, he does so because he wants to generate hate against us among Indians. However, we are on the side of the great mass of Indians and against corrupt leadership, uncaring politicians, extortionate moguls, law-breaking and brutal police forces who ignore the vast sufferings of so many.

Moreno’ speaks of IndiFour victims of police executions in Sathya Sai Baba's bedroom, 1993a on his original vishvarupa.com website in 2003 of India as follows:  “For the past 14 years I have travelled many times to India. I’m captivated by India. (Much to the bewilderment of friends and family)” and he has never made a single critical observation about the vast poverty, the general unconcern with the poor and suffering, the host of embezzling and self-serving politicians and mafias and the depths of depravity whereby children are sold into prostitution in the millions and tiny babies are maimed in horrendous ways to turn them into beggars. His only concern is to bash and harass in every possible way every dissident of his admired gurus, Sathya Sai Baba, convicted murderer and rapist Swami Premananda, Ammachi the heavy-duty hugging matron, the long-expired Ramana Maharshi and such others.

Email Correspondence with ARORA, VISHAL

Posted by robertpriddy on September 23, 2010

As part of his researches, Vishal Arora contacted both Sathya Sai Baba proponents and dissidents. As his article shows with all clarity, he was unable to penetrate the wall of silence and propaganda that surrounds all Sathya Sai Baba and all his officials and ashram people. Gerald Moreno went straight into an offensive to try to pressure Arora into acting as his mouthpiece, which failed dismally, of course. As is his wont, Moreno speculated over why I was not on-line for two weeks in the month or so prior to Arora’s article’s, implying that I was in India meeting him. Far from it, I was travelling in the Western hemisphere only.

In fact, Moreno is extremely frustrated by the fact that no serious journalist or researcher will take any notice of what he writes, not as soon as they read his diatribes and falsifications. He was rejected by journalists in USA and one in Norway (at Aftenposten, who contacted me after an e-mail exchange with him which gave her the right picture well enough. She thought he was childish! Moreno wrote back to her that he was “very disappointed”!). He was up in arms over Tulasi Srinivas, who mentioned -  sometimes inaccurately and with much censorship of our evidence – the researches of Brian Steel, Barry Pittard and myself… but gave Moreno’s conspiracies the cold shoulder altogether. He has also been given the cold shoulder by my friend and colleague, Erlendur Haraldsson (in psychological and para-psychological matters), who simply mailed back to the mischievous Moreno how we are old friends. Everything I wrote about Haraldsson on my web pages is true (my wife can attest to the content of many conversations about Sai Baba’s egomania etc. he and I had). Of course, I have the proof of my various claims about his opinions in Haraldsson’s own e-mails to me, of which I have at least 50.

Thus, Vishal Arora was no doubt drawn more and more into a sceptical attitude regarding Sathya Sai Baba by Moreno’s phoney friendly advances, though he did not communicate much with the sceptics. He e-mailed me on the advice of the dissident Serguei Badaev, former Sathya Sai Organization President in Moscow, quoting him as follows:-
“We are continually being persecuted by various Sai Baba supporters, not least by Murali Krishna Yachendra… related to a most prominent Sai Baba follower in India. I have, for example, received a public death threat not so long ago too.” To this I replied:-

From: rero@getmail.no
To: vishalarora_in@hotmail.com
Subject: Re: About Sai Baba
Date: Mon, 10 May 2010 15:41:19 +0200

Dear Mr. Vishal Arora,
Thank you for contacting me!
I was the national leader of the Sathya Sai Centre in Oslo and contact person for the national Organization for most of 18 years in Norway until 2000.
As to the death threat I received, it was sent as a comment to my wordpress blog and can be viewed below the blog at http://robertpriddy.wordpress.com/2008/11/24/2164/
After receiving that threat, I reported it to the Oslo Police. Due to lack of resources and the fact that the threat was made from the USA, the police decided they could not pursue the matter. WordPress provide the IP and e-mail address given. This was as follows:-

sathya88 –   mohan88hg@gmail.com -  137.131.206.70   -  2008/11/26 at 1:08 am
Robert Priddy,
You are son of a Bastard for sure I can tell you that. Sai Baba is god and his devotees love to see him on the golden chariot. If even swamy doesnot want golden things we want him to see majestically. If you come in front of me I will kill you man mohan

I tracked down the geo location to the USA. It is in San Diego, California. I replied to the e-mail with the warning that it was reported to the police. If you search Google for the e0-mail in question you now find several entries, including the phone number of mohan (he runs San Diego boats and his phone no. is 858 587 4829 !! I have not contacted him. (Since I did not know this, perhaps I should report him to his local police… I have not considered that before.)
See http://www.google.com/search?q=%22mohan88hg%40gmail.com%22&hl=en&lr=&filter=0
He also has a profile at the following web address: http://www.spoke.com/profiles/mohan88hg@gmail.com
If you consider it o.k. to contact him, please inform me what result you may get.
In case you do not know of my long involvement etc. with Sathya Sai Baba and why I eventually joined the the exposure of him, please visit my main website at http://www.saibaba-x.org.uk/ There I have documented a massive amount of material concerning him, which I guarantee is completely truthful and true as far as my knowledge reaches.

Murali Krishna Yachendra (former teacher at Sathya Sai College and an insider at Prashanthi Nilayam) is the grandson of the Raja of Venkatagiri and his case is an interesting one. The entire matter is documented in a book published by Skeptic Book Club (Basava Premanand) entitled “Sabotage by Murali Krishna Yachendra” in which the countless e-mail exchanges between him and expose activists is printed. An extremely revealing attempt to confound activists…but it was foiled. Premanand lodged a complaint to the police (see attached scan) and the District Collector – without result!! See a resume of the matter and document scans etc. at
http://www.saibabaexpose.com/Yachendra/Murali_Krishna_Yachendra.htm

Scan of mail sent by Basava Premanand to Nellore Police reporting death threat from Mohan88

As to the question of persecution by Sai Baba activists, there is a catalogue of such things. Firstly the victims of sex abuse and their families have been persecuted through their social networks, employment etc.(according to many highly confidential e-mails I have received – I cannot release this information since numerous murders in India have been recorded – many by B. Premanand, but – of course – the execution in cold blood of four devotees in June 1993. The subsequent CBI investigation was hindered then finally quashed from top governmental level just before the result was pending! This can be verified on-line from numerous reports – not least in the BBC Interview with V.P.B. Nair – Former Home Secretary of Andhra Pradesh State at http://www.exbaba.com/comments_on/_the_secret_swami/nair.htm

Then there is a massive internet campaign, much of it by Sai admirer Gerald Joe Moreno of Las Cruces, New Mexico, but also by numerous others… including hundreds of bulletin board libels, lies and personal attacks etc. on over a hundred persons who have spoken out about the sex abuses and similar instances of criminal events connected to Sathya Sai Baba and/or his institutions.

Please feel free to pose any questions you may have… and you are free to print anything which I have stated here, also anything on my main website or my main blog at robertpriddy.wordpress.com.

Thanking you for your interest,
Sincerely
Robert Priddy

Arora’s replied to me only briefly. He did not use any of my materials as such, though his opinions are very much in line with my own, it turned out. He asked how he might contact the Rahms, Lisa Tice and Hari Sampath, on which I informed him.
The result I later saw was as follows:-

Vishal Arora reports on the Rahm family, Hari Sampath etc.

As to alleged “Screen-cap fraud”: Gerald Moreno accuses others who are innocent of fraud – who have never changed a single word of what has been recorded from the internet, of that which he is guilty himself! He has nothing whatever substantive to charge me with, so he descends to hair-splitting matters about difference in colour and contrast, arrangement of information etc. as being ‘fraudulent’. His one aim is to have as many accusations on-line as possible, which seem at first glance to surfers to be something. On closer inspection he is seen to be a fanatical obsessive hate promoter. Further, he has frequently left out very significant words in his ‘quotations’ of Basava Premanand and in some of his otherwise also heavily-biased and selective presentations of what I have written.

Sathya Sai Baba imitators and parasites galore

Posted by robertpriddy on September 22, 2010

The new Sai Baba of Nepal.

The Nepali Sai Baba enthroned before his adoring masses

Sathya Sai Baba has had such success – not least in deceiving a very large number of religious seekers – that he has started what could be considered a particular guru brand “Sai Baba”, which numerous others have imitated. In 1994 at Kodaikanal, while driving to darsan at the Sai ashram there, the occupants of my taxi exploded with laughter when we passed a young replica of Sathya Sai Baba looking very like him when young. He was striding along confidently, but this was temporary as he was stopped at the gate and kept out for trying to ridicule Sathya Sai Baba.

There is a Sathya Sai Guru Gallery of impostors one can see here. Among the most exhaustive copyists, complete with all the trappings, poses, educational institutions, youth wing – you name it – is Bala Sai Baba, who has a huge complex modelled on Prashanthi Nilayam, also in Andhra Pradesh.

Now, however, a new competitor comes on the scene. As one can see from the photos here, he adopts poses of Sathya Sai Baba well-known from the massive photo gallery of him. Hanky to the mouth, padnamaskaar by devotees as darshan, ‘thoughtful pose’ with finger on chin, ‘Sri Sai seva’  and much besides. There is an absolutely hilarious video of this Nepali Sai Baba,  on You Tube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZgFpYfxCN8&feature=related

Some photos of the new 'Sai Baba' of Nepal.

Doesn't he just look a darling? All that wonderful hair... how does he do it?

Vishal Arora and Gerald Moreno’s vain deceptive e-mails

Posted by robertpriddy on September 21, 2010

On June 1st, 2010, the Indian magazine ‘The Caravan’ edited by Vishal Arora, a New Delhi investigative journalist, published an extensive article about Sathya Sai Baba and his ashrams. It was entitled ‘The Land of Illusion’ and was based on widespread contacts and research by the author, who also visited the Prashanthi Nilayam ashram himself and stayed there. The entire Vishal Arora article can be read on-line here

As part of his researches, Vishal Arora contacted both Sathya Sai Baba proponents and dissidents. He mailed Gerald Moreno, whose attacks on dissidents and alleged sexually abused persons are widely available on the web, and received the suspiciously paranoid reply from Moreno, with his experience that no serious journalist or researcher ever credits his bogus and thoroughly refuted claims that critics are deceivers and what have you. Yet he evidently actually believes his own deceptions.

-
-

Among the flood of distorted information Moreno always produces, is the following endlessly proclaimed denial of the possibility that he was sexually molested (groomed)  – despite his admitted confusion at the time, inability to understand the meaning of the oiling he received (though many others have testified it was an introduction to serious sexual acts)- and not list his extraordinary published belief for some years that Sathya Sai Baba is a sexual abuser (who he defended nonetheless all through).

Excerpt from Moreno's cantankerous and deceiving e-mails to Vishal Arora

All the fabrication is entirely on Gerald Moreno's side - not on that of the academics and professionals who have exposed him after being relentlessly attacked by him for years

Firstly, Moreno attacked every critic of Sai Baba for some years before most of them responded. Moreno doesn’t (wish anyone to) realise that all his key facts have been firmly refuted by numerous persons – so “irrefutable facts” is the wrong term! He  repeats for the n’th time all his emphatic complaints, all of which have been adequately addressed by those involved. As ever, he simply makes the same statement about a number of critics as they – after holding back for years during his character assassinations, hate agenda,  libels and web stalking etc.- eventually leveled at him. That Moreno’s own description of how he was ‘oiled’ on the lower stomach by Sathya Sai Baba amounts to sexual molestation (known as grooming for fuller sex relations) he can deny. Though in deep psychological denial modus all over concerning Sathya Sai Baba,  it is legal fact he cannot disprove.

Gerald Moreno trying to dig dirt about Christian connections!

Moreno’s propaganda makes full use of guilt by association or ‘poisoning the well’. This is also sometimes known as “poisoning the well” and is an extensions of the fallacy of ad hominem. It works by putting two extreme – or otherwise opposed – positions against each other and accuse anyone who says ‘no’ to the one to be unduly biased towards the other, as if there were no other standpoints except the extremes – no spectrum of moderate or in-between views. For example, all those who are not blind devotees are  extremists (and for Moreno, smear merchants). Christians are suspect for him, unless they have given up most of their faith and become Sai baba devotees. Similar to Moreno, demagogues set up such false oppositions between right-wing extremists and communists – for right extremists all socialists are left-wing revolutionaries etc., and for communists all right-wingers are fascists or Nazis. George W. Bush Jr.. was a proponent of this fallacy: “If you’re not with us, you’re with the terrorists.”

Moreno's disingenuous mail thanking for 'openness' and pretending to be 'sincerely' Moreno

Moreno’s ‘thanks for openness’ is an attempt to disarm, but openness is never returned by Moreno, as the next excerpt from his mails shows. His numerous e-mail exchanges with alleging sexual abusers and dissidents which he maliciously posted (without permission) on his websites shows his lack of genuineness and fanatical wrath beyond a figment of doubt. He hopes for “kindly” answers and the “sincerely” he adds is sheer hypocrisy, as he later proves by his usual posting of Arora’s e-mails and massive attacks on his character and motives etc.

Moreno makes another devious presentation in the above about my opposing the immigrant lawyer Nish Paramjorthy of London. The fact is that, pointing out that he is a barrister, he made a veiled and indecent threat on ExBaba.com. My London legal adviser located his superior at Holborn Chambers, London. On his advice, I made a formal complaint to this Head of Chambers, S. S. Stevens Esq., who later informed me that Paramjorthy was suspected of having illegally deleted the e-mail he sent me. He suddenly left Holborn Chambers and went to another legal group. I had not tried to get him fired, only wanting him formally to retract his statement. Consequently, he was reported to the official boy in UK for complaints against barristers, the Bar Council for the  irregular behaviour of purporting to be acting unprofessionally by presenting himself as a barrister in an attempt to intimidate many of us who are exposing the evil Sathya Sai Baba cult he so disgracefully defends. This action was perfectly above board. The Bar Council did not impose sanctions on him due to a technicality – he had not written on the legal firm’s notepaper, nor was his e-mail independently traceable any longer! However, he was nonetheless ‘sent packing’ – to use one of Moreno’s favourite phrases. He surely contacted Moreno thereafter. Moreno cites this case in a tendentious way, and uses it as an excuse for hiding all he can about himself. Moreno’s identity, location, lack of qualifications and proper employment are known to us, even though he claims to be “a world traveller” (i.e. he’s just a tourist) and “professional artist” (he makes graphic cartoons and devices with photo software). More like it, he is a “professional con artist” who spends all his time posting contrivances and libels all over the Internet (and all his pages have been saved by an independent authority). So presumably he does realize the jeopardy into which his lies (including many about me supposedly lying, not least) have put him. No doubt  he wants to avoid anything from anyone like the same consequences which Nish Paramjorthy faced.

Now, Gerald Moreno evidently considers himself something of an authority (despite his lack of all qualifications and repeated inability to be logical or to account for all but the facts that suit him). He takes to his more outright threatening approach:-

Gerald Moreno tries to threaten an independent mind

Gerald Moreno frustrated - he can't pressure Arora so he tells that he will now attack him.
From cache of part of Gerald Moreno's website

Moreno also mailed Arora with his absurd claim of “Screen-cap fraud”: As per usual,he accuses others who are innocent of the very fraud of which he is himself guilty! See  Gross fraudulence: Gerald Moreno tries to ridicule Robert Priddy and Gerald Moreno: absurd screencap fraud claims contra Priddy

What kind of person goes to such lengths to smear hundreds of people – including abuse sufferers – to the full extent of his capacity, just because they criticize a guru who claims to be God Incarnate, Deity of deities and much more? The more remarkable is the fact that Gerald Moreno does not even believe that Sathya Sai Baba is any of these things, not his claims to be the avatar of the age and to be omniscient and omnipotent! So he thinks Sai Baba is an outright liar.. but he never says that. Instead he believes that of  all who disagree with Sathya Sai Baba and with Moreno himself..

Vishal Arora Indian journalist exposes Sathya Sai Baba 

Posted by robertpriddy on September 20, 2010

‘The Caravan’ Magazine on Sathya Sai Baba by independent investigative journalist Vishal Arora states:-

Sathya Sai Baba bedroom murders summarized by Vishal Arora, independent Indian journalist

As Arora found out, there is a most powerful and widely extended cadre of Sathya Sai Baba worshippers in power in India, most of whom having been outspoken as worshipping devotees for many years. Prestige, favours, money and, above all, the fear or ridicule for having been so thoroughly taken in by a widely accused pedophile and accomplice to murder of his own devotees is a powerful factor in their continued fear (and blocking) of investigations of any kind into Sathya Sai Baba. Vishal Arora writes:-
There is no lack of powerful, high-profile people cutting across political parties and spheres, professing their faith in Sai Baba.
Justice PN Bhagwati, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of India in 1985 and 1986, calls him “divinity incarnate” in Baba is God in Human Form: Experiences of Divinity of Bhagwan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. In the same book, Shivraj Vishwanath Patil, currently Governor of Punjab and former Union Home Minister, says, “He is the knowledge; He is the wisdom personified.” Shankarrao Bhavrao Chavan, former Chief Minister of Maharashtra for two terms and former Union Home and Finance Minister, says he has “no hesitation in saying, whatever position and status I have is purely because of Bhagwan’s blessings.”
And further:-
Famous Indian laywer Kamini Jaiswal spoke to Vishal Arora about the blank refusal of the Supreme Court Petition against Sathya Sai Baba.

Vishal Arora – New Delhi Indian Journalist – on Sathya Sai Baba

Posted by robertpriddy on September 19, 2010


The independent Indian journalist, Vishal Arora, decided to investigate the highly controversial Sathya Sai Baba, and also visited his ashram to see for himself what it is like and how people behave and think there. The results were
startling, to say the least.
 

from 'The Caravan' article 'The Land of Illusion' by Vishal Arora, Indian journalist.

Snippits from the text of Arora's article


Sathya Sai Baba miracle phenomena debunked

 

TANYA DATTA, who presented a BBC documentary on Sathya Sai Baba, encountered a similar climate [(to Arora)]:

“On my first visit to Puttaparthi in 2003, I came across signs in the hostel warning guests that they could be arrested for ‘anti-Sai Baba activities.’ Although I had never heard of this law, the message seemed clear. During the making of the film, it became apparent that the Sai Baba lobby harnesses significant clout within powerful circles. These vested interests conspire to silence criticism and isolate those victims brave enough to tell their stories of abuse.
Allegations against Sai Baba aren’t new. “When I first started investigating him, I found allegations of a sexual nature dating back to the 70s,” Datta said. “The only constant was that these claims had not been investigated by the authorities.”
The testimony of one of Sai Baba’s ex-devotees seems pretty damning. In a signed statement dated 21 March 2001, furnished to me by a Delhi-based lawyer, Kamini Jaiswal, American Al Rahm alleged that Sai Baba had sexually molested him and his son. Rahm, then 45, and his wife Marisa, then 44, believed for 26 years that Sai Baba was a living God. During those years they frequented his ashram.

The shocking acceptance of sexual abuse by leaders who believed Sathya Sai Baba did molest sexually! This included
a leading office-bearer, Berniece Mead and the ‘lunatic fringe’ multi-millionaire donor of a complete hospital to Sathya Sai Baba, Isaac Tigrett:-

In the spring of 1974, when Al Rahm was 18, he said he was called for a private interview with Sai Baba: He seemed able to read my thoughts and appeared to manifest some oil with the wave of his hand. He said he was going to heal a digestive problem. As he rubbed the oil on my solar plexus, he lowered my pants and applied it to my genitals. Then he hugged me and began to kiss me on the mouth while pulling his legs up firmly against my genitals. He told me that he was my pleasure. Finally… he said that I should never tell anyone because they would not understand. I thought he was telling me that all pleasure and all experiences came through our relationship with God. At the time I couldn’t believe that he would have any sexual desire towards me and that it must be a cosmic message. After all, he is Sai Baba, the one presidents, prime ministers, doctors and lawyers come to from around the world.After hearing the accusations, Rahm immediately phoned Dr William Harvey, a fellow officer in the organisation. Harvey called it a test of their faith. Rahm then met Michael Goldstein, Sai Baba’s international coordinator, who seemed torn by the news. He promised to investigate. But then he returned from India. “Swami responded by saying ‘Swami is pure,’” Goldstein allegedly said.“Goldstein lied and has lied for many years all the while keeping sexual allegations about Sai Baba from innocent families like ours who were later abused by Sai Baba,” Rahm continued. “It could have been avoided if he took his position responsibly and admitted to the people that there had been devotees come forward with complaints since as early as the 1970s.” 

Al Rahm also said he telephoned Berniece Mead, who headed Sai Baba’s young adult educational programme in the US. Rahm said Mead wasn’t surprised the allegations were sexual in nature: “It always is.” Then she quietly ended the call, saying, “I wish you the best.”
“Sai Baba has said that the king makes the laws but the king is above the law,” Rahm continued. “Devotees are brainwashed. Many of them believe [Alaya’s] entire story and then say, ‘Well, Baba is god so he can do whatever he wants.’”

Sathya Sai Baba's sexual invasions seen by followers as 'union'

Sathya Sai Baba’s universal wisdom

Posted by robertpriddy on September 17, 2010

In the 1980s, the Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning was granted the status of being a “deemed University” by Madhuri Shah, Sathya Sai devotee and Chairperson of the University Grants Commission. This strange status (not a full university, it seems) was an attempt to raise it closer to the prestige of some of India’s other centres of Higher Learning. Later the power and influence of Sathya Sai Baba over the politicians and judiciary caused it to be accepted as a full university. Good for the career prospects of its alumni perhaps, but not for the future of Indian learning, science, medicine or cutting-edge technology, that’s for sure! Some of the most fantastical claims by Sathya Sai Baba about the earth and human body and its organs are of concern when one realises that this rubbish is being presented as God’s truth to students under the indoctrination system which prevails at all Sathya Sai educational institutions. Here are some such:-

1. The human body’s gold content: Sathya Sai Baba said in his discourse after the Shivarathri lingodbhava two years previously (13/3/2002) “(Showing the golden Linga to the devotees, Swami said). “As you can all see, this Linga is rather bigger in size. There is a meaning behind this. This is five Tolas in weight. [one Tola is 11.66 grams. 5 Tolas = about 60.0 grams] Every human being possesses five Tolas of gold essence known as Hiranyagarbha… Gold represents energy in man and is the cause of his radiance. The gold content within each body is this size only. It is gold essence in the body that makes the eyes see, ears hear etc. (Sanathana Sarathi – April 2002, p. 127) Firstly, the human body cannot possibly contain so much gold! In Wikipedia we find that the amount of gold in the human body is vanishingly tiny: Gold constitutes 0.00000030 % of all the atoms in the body. Further: “only salts and radioisotopes of gold are of pharmacological value, as elemental (metallic) gold is inert to all chemicals it encounters inside the body” (see here) Sai Baba’s fantastic account of how the imaginary Hiranyagarbha ‘represents’ energy [but also ''makes the eyes see, ears hear etc."] is beyond all reason and science. It is a primitive Vedic superstition, which led to the use of gold as an ayurvedic ‘medicine’. It is used in ayurvedic clinics even today, despite modern scientific knowledge of all the properties of gold in all its different forms on the human body as having very little effect except some reduction of some arthritic inflammation. In short, another myth perpetrated by Sathya Sai Baba with his ignorance of science and belief in ancient mythology as superior even to modern knowledge!

2. Journey to the Centre of the Earth?

scanned quotation from 'Conversations with Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba' by Dr. John Hislop

Jules Verne was an imaginative writer, imagining a hollow earth. Now Sathya Sai Baba has seriously debunked that theory! “Mrs. Robert Bozzani (who is ‘Rb’ in the text on the left)) put the first questions, after Sai had made his ‘mystical statement’ out of the blue (i.e. “At the centre everything is liquid”). His explanation is the kind of absurdity that Sathya Sai Baba conveys to his students. One must ask how such untrue fantasy can be deemed worthy of any university anywhere. He assures Bozzani that the teaching of all courses at the University will be like that!

He identifies chemistry with liquids and physics with solids… most amusing. His ignorant legend-stuffed villager mentality is to the fore here. But his students surely understand far more of the real “full picture” of science better than he does, even before they start their higher studies!

3. Wilder and yet wilder… In many hundreds of discourses, published and personally approved by himself, Sathya Sai Baba had made a very large number of statements which exhibit a degree of ignorance and lack of learning and understanding that one would expect from a villager with only a very elementary education. Though Sai Baba does also make a lot of valid and well-informed statements too, it is known to his editors – who I also knew – that he had picked up almost all of his more interesting ideas from other – especially persons he has met in interviews, as well from his educated attendants like Prof. N. Kasturi, Dr. Bhagavantam and so on. His chief propagandist, one of India’s formed atomic bomb physicists, Dr. G. Venkataraman, dares not to mention these absurdities or challenge them… he considers Sathya Sai Baba to be the Creator of the Universe! Yet he must surely know that Sai Baba frequently used to come onto the veranda and misreport to his students things he has heard (but not properly understood) from some expert in the interview room. The evidence of Sathya Sai Baba’s total lack of anything remotely like ‘omniscience’ is found widely available in his own words. He and his zealous followers refer to his ‘teachings’ as ‘Saience’ in opposition to ‘Science – and ‘Sai-cology’ in opposition to ‘Psychology”! For the convenience of those wishing to investigate and research this somewhat further, the following pages have been made to document evidence of some of Sathya Sai Baba’s worst fallacies, faux-pas and fantastic statements.

Gross fraudulence: Gerald Moreno tries to ridicule Robert Priddy

Posted by robertpriddy on September 16, 2010

On Gerald Moreno’s countless hundreds of anti-Priddy websites, blogs and comments, few show such patently manipulated (i.e. falsified) screen captures than the one shown below. [Yet he took care to accuse me – also falsely – of fraudulent screen-caps, which were actually made from Google caches, which differ from the original site in details, and which I have reduced in size to save space, and in which not a single word of his was altered]

Exposing The Anti-Sai Activist: Robert Priddy

Laurens Van Der Post – The Night Of The New Moon:

Just how gullible was Robert Priddy when he was a Sai Devotee for 17-26 years?
Comment: firstly, Moreno tries to make an issue of how long I was a Sai follower (he has written page up and page down to develop this petty theme of my supposed ‘deception’. Such niggling is how Moreno tries to ‘prove’ a lack of integrity of my entire character. The fact is, there are many degrees of commitment involved. I first heard of Sathya Sai Baba in 1954. I learned more about him in 1971. Around 1978 I became interested in Shirdi Sai Baba (though with considerable reservations as to the claims about him). Only in 1983 did Sathya Sai Baba enter my awareness strongly enough to say I became a would-be follower (not all are equally definitive, not all accept everything uncritically.. as in my case). I was the de facto leader (i.e. organizer and leader of all events in the Oslo group) and in Norway from 1983, the pro forma centre leader from 1985 until about 1996-7 and the national leader throughout until 2000. All that explain the variations in dates, which Moreno pettily tries to make into a big issue. Moreno continues (black bold text):-

The answer is very gullible. For example, Robert Priddy published (in his book “Source Of The Dream”) the following scans to Laurens Van Der Post’s “The Night Of The New Moon” book-cover and claimed that one could easily discern the form of Sathya Sai Baba in them.

Gerald Moreno's falsified scan of page based on an illustration in Robert Priddy's book 'Source of the Dream'

The manipulated (falsified) scan on Gerald Moreno's website made as yet another reprehensible but vain attempt to ridicule Priddy

Notice how Robert Priddy enhanced the color on the edited scan and had to carefully shape Baba’s hair from the clouds?

Comment: This is really gross of Moreno! I never enhanced anything, the photos were processed by professional publishers before being put in my book. I reproduce – below the falsified image Moreno posted -, the exact replica of the photos which appear identically in three editions of my book “Source of the Dream” (Sun-Sky Publications, Samuel Weiser Inc. and a Portuguese edition), without a jot of enhancement. The cut-out version was to help readers discern what attracted our attention (in the unusual situation where it came to our notice). Instead, Moreno darkened the images and made one dise different in contrast to the other so as to be able to claim he could not see Sai Baba (in either image!). Where he got the image from with the Penguin logo on I can only guess, I never published such an image myself. Moreno continues:-

I looked long and hard at the images and cannot see Sathya Sai Baba in them. I suppose if one were desperate enough, one could see Sathya Sai Baba in the clouds (no matter how vague the perception). However, these scans show how gullible, naive and “backward intellectually” Robert Priddy was when he was a Sai Devotee.

About the alleged form of Sathya Sai Baba on the book-cover, Robert Priddy said:
“A second leela, which we felt was a form of recognition by Baba for our carrying out regular study of his teachings, occurred similarly one evening when we plodded on with our reading, even though we were very tired. My eye was suddenly drawn to the form of Sathya Sai in the clouds of an evening sky on the front cover of a book that I had recently read. The book is a deeply spiritual account of the life and death in a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp by Laurens van der Post, titled Night of the Moon. It is curious, too, that the night of the new moon is known in India as the night of Shiva. The figure of Sai, leaning forward as if to dispense vibuthi, can be figured out from the background.” (Source Of The Dream, ‘The Universal World Teacher’, pg 212) Robert Priddy was one of those gullible, naive, “ignorami”, “backward intellectually” and “ignorant peasants” when he was a Sai Devotee for 17 years…


COMMENT: Now ever inconsistent Moreno himself decides that I was a devotee for 17 years… which is basically correct, as I only reckoned myself such from 1983 until 2000. “Ignorant peasant” and an “ignorami” hardly describes me, considering that I was the top philosophy graduate at the University of Oslo and lectured in social science and philosophy (tenured) for most of my professional life before I went to India. If that qualifies me as an ‘ignorant peasant’ and ‘backward intellectually’ readers must decide. Note that Moreno leaves out the word ‘new’ in the title “Night of the New Moon”, which is a significant point (a lapse or intentional distortion?)

In that time when the truth about Sai Baba has hardly emerged in public and only a very few came to learn the astonishing and depressing facts, I was in the company of hundreds of Ph.Ds – mostly Indian but not all – and dozens of pro-Sai writers and a great number of other educated devotees who related very similar experiences of ‘seeing’ the form of Sai Baba in many things (which indeed he insists every devotee should always strive to visualize and see everywhere and in everything!). My friend – Sai Baba’s distinguished editor -  V.K. Narasimhan showed the form of Sai Baba’s head on a bowl of cream to many devotees who visited his apartment. There are many images showing Sai Baba’s form in many other objects, such as in ritual fires. (See a supposed ‘appearance’ of Sai Baba in a ritual homa fire at Prashanthi Nilayam) Dr. Jack Hawley enthused in his book about seeing Sai Baba before him, Sandweiss, Hislop, Murphet, Krystal… all regarded this an important phenomenon. Sai Baba himself has given the teaching (see at foot of blog for source references).

Moreno, however, claimed he saw Sai Baba in the flesh in New Mexico… and took it for a miracle straight off.

I was not so gullible or naive either, as I rejected a whole lot of the stories I heard, and was privately most amused by many of the beliefs of a large number of truly uncritical and mindless devotees. The fact is, I was systematically deceiv

ed by Sathya Sai Baba and his entire cadre and most of his following, as many people around the world were. I am no longer deceived, but far too many still are, and especially Gerald Moreno, who tries to ridicule me further:-

(Priddy) … who believed in Avatars, lilas, divine manifestations, gnomes, trolls, fairies, possessing demons, elves, UFOs, extra-terrestials, leprechauns and elementals.

Comment: I believed for some years that Sai Baba most likely was an avatars – as he so rigidly claim and which millions still believe (unfortunately). That belief is a requirement of all members of the Sathya Sai Organization. As to earth spirits, I wrote: “There is a great wealth of testimonial evidence from the whole of the world and history that belief or faith – involving intense emotional or mental preoccupation of some kind – can open the experience of visions, apparitions and apparently miraculous phenomena.” I did not positively affirm their existence, but the likelihood that they may exists as science has not been able (or even tried) to explain them. But Moreno wants it to be quite otherwise. See my article on ‘elementals’ and why modern science has begun to provide experimentally-based explanations of these phenomena. Note that Moreno believes in miracles… and many other doubtful phenomena (which I do not and never have – such as crystals, kundalini, healing mandalas etc.)  He is very cagey about everything else he believes as he knows that to make this public would be very embarrassing. Moreno continues to undercut the beliefs of virtually all Sai devotees (most of which he promotes wildly on his blog ‘Love, Light and Spirituality.. and under the name ‘sathyasaibaba’ too). But he has at least prompted me to explain my former experiences in greater detail, as I otherwise would have neglected to do.

Robert Priddy is bitter and vindictive because he fully documented his own gullible, naive, brainwashed and non-intelligent devotee behavior in his Pro-Sai book for the world to see! What’s even more funny is how Robert Priddy bashes Sai Devotees for acting and believing in the very same manner he did when he was a Sai Devotee. Laughable!

How Moreno overplays his eternally weak hand. I am exposing the gullibility of Sai devotees only now, who should know better after the many revelations of the facts they will not or cannot face. Moreno promotes the VIP devotee and author Howard Murphet (see here), who goes far further that I ever did in the matter of extra-normal spirit influences – including discarnate spirits of ‘ascended masters’ and what have you. But Moreno attacks only dissidents, not Sai Baba favourites.  I did not act as most devotees do at darshan, constantly pressing forward, wanting sweets, blessings and material trinkets… I believed mainly only in the power of doing what good service one can, advancing human understanding and that spirituality is only a private experience between oneself and ‘the divine’, but not something to be paraded and off-handedly boasted about as so many I met did. I always tried to inform the public in as reflected a way as I could in the circumstances (i.e. while being the victim of what is mostly a massive fraud) and my book was one of the very most restrained in praise – compared to the hundreds of besotted panegyrics still on sale about Sai Baba.  Rather than “bashing” Sai devotees for being gullible, naive and brainwashed (and most were far more so than I ever was), I have shown from a very wide range of documentation that – in addition to the huge mass of evidence of his sexual abuses and involvements in dark matters – most of Sai Baba’s belief system – once penetrated (which is far from easy to achieve in that environment) is either direct and cynical deception by SSB and his diverse minions, or wild inventions so as to try to extract some holy interpretation, blessing or personal advantages from this typical Indian guru-hysteria phenomenon.

An e-mail friend wrote this to me about Moreno’s above-quoted page:-
“Didn’t  JM defend the 2007 Moon claims against your and BP’s criticisms? He seems to want to have his cake and eat it – again! A riposte on the gullibility angle might hit his Achilles heel Number 317 (- i.e. he has so

many) Does he condone gullibility in all other devotees except you?” (identity not given so Moreno can’t attack him too, as he surely would!) Gerald Moreno went into peculiar mental contortions to try to deflect criticism from – and defend – the moon miracle Sathya Sai Baba predicted, but which never happened (due to cloud coverage!). Sai Baba proclaimed he would appear on the moon later one evening… thousands flocked to the Sai airport and were totally disappointed. Laughable?

scan of Sai Baba from a book

Sai Baba bending in this way is what inspired me to see his form on the Laurens van der Post cover.

Source references; See God in each form for 3 days: divine results 300 Sanathana Sarathi  Nov. 1993
Lovers of God see God everywhere p. 254 Sanathana Sarathi  Oct. 1991 & p.252 Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. 24

Not strange therefore that so many who still believe in God – and especially in Sathya Sai Baba – see his ‘divine form’ in objects. Perhaps Moreno has too little real devotion to his would-be God? However, it is a function of the brain to see human features in all and any kinds of materials and things, only when one believes they have spiritual significance does it become dodgy.. but one has to be liberated from all notions of supernatural miraculous phenomena to appreciate that.

Gerald Moreno’s distortion of facts in his ego-driven war

Posted by robertpriddy on September 15, 2010

Scan of top parts of a Google search result showing more of frenetic Gerald Moreno's attack pages on Robert Priddy

Google search result

Gerald Moreno, the fraudulent ‘researcher’ who invents things and attributes them to others shows once again that his vituperative hatefulness dominates his psyche again when he concocts a story that Swami Ambikananda ‘lambasted’ Robert Priddy. He never did any such thing!  Swami Ambikananda was mostly a kindly if very difficult person, even though he dominated his followers who became like mice before a lion.  When I realised the absurdity of it all, I wrote him a letter in which I asked him a number of questions. He was unable to answer them and, because I questioned some of the statements he had made [and which events confirmed were evidently untruths] I broke off relations with him. He replied with a literally drivelling letter to me, and I never visited him again (I only met him about 5 times across about 8 years, though I was regularly in touch with many of his circle for many years). The fact is, he could simply not take it that anyone dared even question him as the ‘guru’. Much the same happened in the case of the one he named as president of his ashram, who left him after many years. Ambikananda was a very intuitive person with all the mental trappings of an Indian guru, but he was very authoritarian    He evidently felt hurt that I drove across his wild and unlikely claims and advice like a tank. I heard later from a friend that he had said of me that I am a ‘skeptic tank’.  He should have known better – as a Ramakrishna devotee – to speak unkindly of people behind their backs! Yes, Moreno!

Gerald Moreno takes two words, changes them into “septic skeptic tank”, and blows his invention up into a full story about a “lambasting” by Swami Ambikananda. That is merely Moreno’s own septic interpretation of me. In his pernicious attempts to undermine my reputation and character, Moreno’s ever-malicious and ‘septic’ wording alone shows the vindictiveness and from Google image searchobsession.

All but a very few who read Moreno’s views on Priddy will recognise how pathetic are his constant contrived allegations and false productions. The more he continues, the more trivial he becomes, and – due to his many web pages and blogs – the more prominent the controversy about Sathya Sai Baba becomes. He has no public support, not even from organization members (and they are well-advised in this if not in much else).

Moreno began his extensive libeling, and his many deceptions, contrivances and provable direct lies for some years before I – and some of the many others he has attacked likewise – began to respond with more than an occasional brief  comment. I have since found it necessary instead to make specific rebuttals of his hate pages against me, so see The full story of Moreno here

Apropos the reliability of Ambikananda as a soothsayer, one who knew him has written of a book about him: “And it faithfully records his extraordinary blend of Mauritian patois, inspired revelations, obscure ramblings and determinedly syncretic vision where Jesus appears at the front door and the Divine Mother Kali manifests through his body. Miracles and wonders abound, and a sense of bemusement that he was as little known as he was, given that other teachers with far bigger Egos strode the stage at the time.” (One thinks of Sathya Sai Baba, who Swewami Ambikananda visited one and sat at darshan in Brindavan).

That gives some idea of the kind of person Moreno evidently believes in and respects as percipient and wise… a fanatically religious ‘swami’ whose “obscure ramblings” were indeed sheer gabbledegook and whose often extremely incredulous beliefs were punctured by others. For example, he told of one person for saying the name ‘Yama’ because he thereby destroyed an entire world each time. The response was an endless stream of ‘Yama, Yama, Yama’! Ambikananda reportedly ran off in a frenzy and was found sleeping out next morning.

As to his being a swami of the Ramakrishna order, he was not above marrying (a French lady) having a daughter, and abandoning them soon afterward. Not exactly sanathana dharma!

Information About Gerald Moreno

Posted by robertpriddy on September 14, 2010

The following text (in black colour) is all found on a Google cache of one of Gerald Moreno’s many attack pages:-
 

Information About Gerald Moreno

Dear Friends & Fellow Seekers:

If you found this webpage, chances are you were looking for someone named Gerald Moreno who is involved with the online debate and online controversy relating to Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. Gerald Moreno is the webmaster and registrant for this saisathyasai.com domain, which is not affiliated with any Sai Centers, Sai Devotees or the Sathya Sai Organisation.

COMMENT by Robert Priddy; Moreno’s web sites are associated with many Sai devotees. He has written about his contact with Yaani Drucker, Lisa de Witt, Murali Krishna Yachendra, Irene Strindhed among numerous others! That he has no affiliation with the Sathya Sai Organization may be technically correct (no membership) but that he is their messenger boy nobody but a handful of people can doubt. There is much circumstantial evidence of his clandestine contact with US Sai Organization persons and he has himself admitted on-line to having had contact with members of the Sathya Sai Central Trust. He has contacted various Sai Organization office-bearers (Ashok Bhagani in the UK) and has received information from Sai VIP Robert Basin (or his go-betweens) about the court case against Alaya Rahm (posted by Moreno before anyone except the parties involved knew that (or where) the  lawsuit took place… and information not available except to the attorneys and parties involved, especially a deposition never dealt with in court proceedings due to dismissal of the case). His massive campaign to defend all Sai devotees and the Organization also show he is trying to deceive the public. Moreno continues:-

Ex-Devotees of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba have waged pervasive, defamatory and libelous smear campaigns against Gerald Moreno because he discovered and published very disturbing facts about their many online smear, hate and defamation campaigns against Sai Baba and others. This internet page was created to refute the
defamations and libels against Gerald Moreno and to provide factual and relevant information about Anti-Sai Activists.”

“Gerald Moreno has uncovered and published shocking information about critics and skeptics of Sathya Sai Baba. This website fully documents this information and many Ex-Devotees are very upset about it. They have retaliated against Moreno in the very same manner they have retaliated against Sathya Sai Baba (i.e., by resorting to malicious defamation, smear and hate campaigns). Former followers went relatively unchallenged from 1997 – 2004. In that time, they fully dominated the internet with their Anti-Sai propaganda. The playing field has now changed and Ex-Devotees are closing ranks and running scared (and with good reason).”

 

COMMENT by Robert Priddy; The information Gerald Moreno has published about critics of Sathya Sai Baba is very largely contrived and distorted, well-spiced with outright lies about them… He defends this by claiming his right to freedom of speech! He neglects to say, of course, that he above all others “resorting to malicious defamation, smear and hate campaigns” for about 3 years before the main body of outspoken ex-followers of Sai Baba professionals took issue with his lies, except in very brief comments here and there. Moreno continued opening web sites and blogsites, posting on countless other sites, boards and anywhere which would accept his depredations until some of his prime targets began to react. These reactions were against the untruth and libels he wrote, and were not – and are not – malicious or defamatory, but properly documented rebuttals of his fanatical campaign. There are ex-devotees who are angered by his attacks, as my mailbox confirms, and the hundreds of victims of his smear campaign of whom he has made implacable enemies will eventually redress the matter in one way or another. His life is now marked by his own hate to such a degree – and it is so easily available – that his reputation is destroyed for his lifetime. What proper employer would be likely to consider employing him? He has overstepped the mark to such a huge degree that he cannot prove many false assertions he has made in any court. That Gerald Moreno is so desperate to get his photo removed from all web sites and blogs – as his strenuous activities on this front show – indicates how worried he is that decent Sai devotees may recognize him at ashrams or in India – i.e. those who still have a modicum of honesty, independence of thought and fairness.


Moreno uses empty tabloid language about “Ex-Devotees closing ranks” and “running scared (and with good reason)” while the truth is that his attacks have only increased the volume and frequency of posted materials exposing Sathya Sai Baba – and – after several years of virtual silence by his targets – against himself! Serious and professional ex-devotees got together long before Gerald Moreno entered the scene with his slander campaign, as the formation of the JuST Group and the posting of the Public Petition for Official Investigations of Sathya Sai Baba and His Worldwide Organization prove beyond any doubt. The idea that ex-devotees are “closing ranks” is laughable… ex-devotees hold a widely varying views on many issues – including on the exact nature of Sai Baba’s deceptions and unpunished crimes. The Internet enabled disaffected Sai followers who otherwise had no way of knowing or contacting most other dissidents to contact one another for the first time. The Sai petition furthered this mutual contact greatly. Gerald Moreno attributes to himself far more importance than he can honestly lay claim to. There is no particular “closing of ranks” among dissidents or critic of Sai Baba, just normal contacts between various groupings for the sake of mutual information and support. However, Moreno’s comic book epithet ‘closing ranks, running scared’ may well be said to apply to the Sathya Sai Organization. They have the most extreme form of censorship and muzzling of all members, and none dare post the slightest questioning about anything untoward or criticism of anything else connected to the organization, Sai Baba or the movement around him. without being excluded from the organization! After the BBC made their documentary which exposed Sai Baba and not last the International Chairman of the Sathya sai Organization, Dr. M. Goldstein, he issued a private circular (which was leaked out) instructing all in the organization not to allow the press or media to report, record or film at any meeting or event held by them. The absence of all members of any institution or organization run by Sathya Sai followers from serious open public discussion of anything whatever relating to Sathya Sai baba or how works, and the systematic blocking of comments by all but 100% positive devotees on all YouTube videos promoting Sai Baba or his followers, and on all pro-Sai web sites and blogs shows how and where “ranks are closed”.


Moreno’s pages include the following heading (with links I have removed) – repeated in countless variations all over his many sites. All of the issues he refers to below have been dealt with thoroughly enough for any independent (i.e. non-indoctrinated) persons to see that there is virtually nothing in them… certainly nothing of any import compared with the massive number of testimonies and documentation exposing Sathya Sai Baba’s sexual proclivities, involvement in cold-blooded execution cover-up and countless false and fantastic claims about himself, proven untruths (documented from his own words) and failed prophesies etc.

NB! IT IS INTERESTING INDEED THAT – THOUGH MORENO WORKS ASSIDUOUSLY ON BEHALF OF SATHYA SAI BABA AND NOT LEAST THE SATHYA SAI ORGANIZATION – THERE IS NOT ONE SINGLE OFFICE-BEARER OR OTHER RESPECTED OR OTHERWISE IMPORTANT FIGURE IN THE ORGANIZATION WHO IS WILLING TO SUPPORT HIM IN PUBLIC!

THIS IS WISE OF THEM INDEED, BUT THEIR HYPOCRISY ABOUT ‘LOVING ALL’ AND ‘THE TRUTH’ BECOMES ALL THE MORE OBVIOUS IN THAT THEY NEVER CRITICISE MORENO’S SMEARS AND LIES EITHER, NOR DOES A SINGLE ONE OF THEM SUPPORT THEIR FORMER RESPECTED DEVOTEE FRIENDS IN THE SLIGHTEST WAY! SO MUCH FOR MORAL COURAGE, STANDING UP FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS, THE GOOD AND ORDINARY HUMAN DECENCY.

In his constant battle to libel dissenters and critics and to drag their names through the mud of his own slinging, Gerald Moreno resorts to very lengthy blogs using as many keywords as he can summon up so that each blog will appear in connection with as many keywords as possible… that is, in as many places on Google as possible. He has, for example, a list of names of people connected to Sathya Sai Baba, many of whom have been exposed by critics.

Moreno has purposely left out of the name list above 155 (One Hundred Fifty Five) Sai Students whose names were sent to ExBaba by a former student (whose genuineness has been ascertained through contacts). These students are reported as having had one form or another of sexual molestation by Sathya Sai Baba. Moreno claims the following:- “Needless to say, many of the Sai Students personally contacted Moreno denying the abuse allegations and requested that their names be removed from the bogus list (hence a screencap with the names instead of actual text).” He would believe anyone who denies sexual abuse without further evidence… that is his firm agenda.  Moreno is both unwilling and completely unable to present any evidence that he has been contacted by Sai students on the list… and – if one or two have – certainly not by “many”. However, our contacts with Sai students are many, and also with some of those who were abused according to the list. We have a large compendium of materials sent us by former students who tell much about the nature of the abuses, how they took place, who was involved, and many details inconnection with this. The list of name was nonetheless posted by Moreno on his blog in the form of a jpeg (thus avoiding their appearance on Google searches).

List of abused students

Date: 01-13-02

Document date: Monday, December 31 2001 at 16:01:44

Name: exsaistudents e-mail: xstudent@rediffmail.com

To Dear All

Comments : xstudent@rediffmail.com

http://www.quicktopic.com/9/H/ehfcBK8qrWRYZ/p-1.8.1 (since discontinued bulletin board)

http://www.quicktopic.com/8/H/qYarJBpGLW7G6/p541.534

Dear All,

We have posted the names of some of us ex students and staff members (both past and present) of SSSHSS (secondary level) and SSSIHL (university level). Many people have doubts whether the names are genuine. They are all names of people who were students or staff members since the inception of sai baba’s colleges till the most recent ones.

The list includes the names of some who are dead (E.K.Suresh Kumar, N. Radhakrishnan, Yuvraj Suri). But the fact is that they were all molested by sai baba . Please understand our plight; we have given our youth, happiness, normal life, our homes and parents for the sake of sai baba without questioning even once.

In the end we find that we have been cheated because he just wanted to use our bodies to have perverted sex with us. We have to live with this trauma.We don’t want any help but want devotees to NEVER send their children to sai baba’s schools or colleges for whatever reasons.

If you don’t have money, it’s better for your loving children not to study; keep them with you, but don’t leave them to sai baba. That will ruin their lives and they will never be able to tell you the truth.

NUMBER OF STUDENTS MOLESTED:

On an average sai baba molests about 1-5 students every day. Some are molested only once or twice, while the rest are regularly molested. They are called the FORM BOYS. All the staff members who matter know this fact.

So this list is just the tip of the iceberg of shame. You can imagine how many students have been molested till now and still being molested every day. We are posting these names and will post more, so that we can be helped.

Parents and relatives should understand our plight. We are all broken down; many have committed suicide, our married lives are devastated. Yet due to socio-economic reasons we can never come out in the open and sign a statement or a declaration, at least not yet, because we know that the government, the law, the media barons, the police, big industrial houses, all political parties are under the influence of sai baba.

ROLE OF STAFF MEMBERS:

All the staff members of the Primary School, SSSHS (secondary) and SSSIHL (university) are very much aware of what happens to students in the interview room because many have themselves been molested earlier. But they know that if they raise the issue, they will be just asked to quit. Many have families and may never be able to get such jobs and power in the outside real world, so most of them have benefited economically.

Many staff members are running lucrative businesses including real estate, hotels, guesthouses etc., apart from their teaching responsibilities.

They feel they have nothing to lose; after all the boy who is getting molested is not theirs.

But we are sure sooner or later things will change because such staff members are assisting and abetting a confirmed paedophile (sai baba) in finding fresh victims and ruining their lives. In fact they can be charged with being a party to assisting sai baba in his homosexual and paedophilic acts. These are both punishable offences as per Indian Penal Code. This may include the vice-chancellor, registrar, director, controller, various departmental heads of SSSIHL (university), the principal and staff of SSSHSS (secondary level) as well as the headmistress and staff members of the Primary School.

PRESENT STUDENTS:

The present lot of students who are studying belong to a generation that is ready to do anything for money, for a professional or a normal degree. They are all aware what could happen to them in the interview room, but they have a nonchalant attitude. They feel that to gain something you should be ready to loose something.

Many take it as a joke having a few quick ones with the old sai baba. After all they are getting trinkets like rings, chains, watches, money, trips to Ootacamund or Kodaikanal, name, cheap popularity, free education and a degree as a bonus. After that those who play their cards well do not find it difficult to land an easy job with a good salary in the many companies owned by the devotees in India or overseas.

So the students are well aware of what is happening. Many are not able to open their mouths due to peer pressure or family. Some are from economically weaker backgrounds and can never afford such education anywhere else. Moreover, the routine at the hostels is such that one has no time to think or analyse.

THE ONES WHO BENEFIT:

In India most of the industrial houses know that sai baba is a very refined powerbroker, so they all pay respects and their jobs are done with the government. After all a few million rupees is nothing to them. Everybody knows the names of such industrialists and they can be seen in most of the functions.

The same holds good for foreign tycoons. What is important is money. Some ex-students who made it by entering the lucrative real estate business in Puttaparthi include: Ajay Ankam Radhakrishna Reddy (younger brother of Ram Mohan Rao, lecturer in SSSHSS).

Sai baba is a major shareholder in a large state of the art garment unit next to Brindavan, owned by the Mirpuris of Indonesia. The elder son Haresh Mirpuri, an ex student, manages the same. The list is very long, but that is not the purpose of these notes. It is all about money you see!

MURDERS AT THE ASHRAM:

Too much has been written about that dark night. Many know the truth but keep quiet. Since sai baba cannot be questioned, those who are interested in finding the facts can contact either Piyush Kumar Srivastava, an ex-student who is supposed to have saved sai baba that night and lives at Puttaparthi, or Mr Dora, the longest reigning director general of police of Andhra Pradesh. Their parents had trusted sai baba and sent their sons for studies and a good character to his institutions. We are sure no mother or father would have known that they were sending their sons to their death.

N. Radhakrishnan, E.K.Suresh Kumar, Sai Ram, Sai Kumar Mahajan, all ex-students were victims that night. More about this later.

WE ARE POSTING SOME OF OUR NAMES, EX SAI STUDENTS AND STAFF MEMBERS (PAST & PRESENT) WHO WERE SEXUALLY MOLESTED BY SAI BABA AT LEAST ONCE.

MOST WERE MOLESTED MANY TIMES. PLEASE HELP BY ADDING MORE NAMES TO THE LONG LIST, WHICH MAY RUN INTO THOUSANDS.

Sathya Sai Baba’s wide ‘lunatic fringe’ and Moreno

Posted by robertpriddy on September 13, 2010

Pages showing Gerald Moreno's self-assessed "art" and his lunatic belief in chackras and the kundalini

Gerald Joe Moreno, who believes Sathya Sai Baba is at least on a par with Jesus, also with Swami Premananda (in prison under two life sentences for rape and murder, confirmed after appeal to the Supreme Court of India) – all for Moreno qualifying as being ‘vishvarupa’ or incarnations of the Divine (see his http://vishvsarupa.com site). A person who defends both convicted murderers and sex abusers and government-protected criminals is clearly beyond the fringe of normality.

Moreno is also a believer in the holy power of ‘mandalas’. He has made many images of mandalas
(produced with IT software) and therefore he calls himself a ‘professional artist’, no doubt in desperation to pretend to some qualification, since he has no others. These images represent the imaginary ‘chackras’ or mystical centres which are supposedly opened when the mystical ‘serpent power/ (kundalini) is awakened and rises along an invisible channel in the spine up to the brain. This is a totally non-empirical and speculative mysticism, much loved by would be spiritual and holy persons who accept on faith from their gurus or the vague and fantastic literature that all this have a basis in reality. I have never believed in the kundalini other than as a symbolism for ordering various spiritual dogmas  and a numinous idea, but Moreno is entirely under the spell of this and a vast amount of Hindu superstition and religious trickery that goes along with it. Gerald Moreno tries to create the impression that he knows all about these chackras and the kundalini, but his entire Gerald Moreno quackery - bogus 'healing' by staring at digi-mandalaoutput demonstrates that he has far too many bad qualities to fulfil the supposed requirement for the task as it is described by its mystical proponents.

Of course, Moreno is a firm believer in Divine miracles. This began with him supposedly being visited literally in the flesh by Sathya Sai Baba in his bedroom at night in New Mexico, when Sai Baba was demonstrably in India. (Moreno was paralysed at the time and in great fear – symptoms of ‘narcolepsy’ usually following sleep deprivation whereby dream contents appear as real waking events).

Finally, he denies that Sathya Sai Baba’s oiling of his “lower stomach” in private in the inner interview room was a case of sexual molestation, even though he cannot deny that such an act fulfils all the requirements of sexual abuse under Indian (and most foreign) law, and that it is widely reported as grooming for sexual relations of most unpleasant kinds by over 30 testifiers!

Moreno is also believes that Sathya Sai Baba’s ‘holy nectar’ (amrit) is unearthly and is manifested by Sathya Sai Baba (as he believes all other objects claimed by Sai Baba are, or else he would have refuted any bogus claims surely?). Moreno states he wishes amrit were available on the market as he would buy “gallons”! In fact it is nothing other than tea rose essence (added to sugar water), while devotees largely believe it is a manifested substance – a blessing from God himself which may lead to their escaping rebirth on the wheel of life! He has images of vibuthi allegedly manifesting on pictures of Sathya Sai Baba at Halagappa’s orphanage [i.e. the 'thief's temple'], but he never questions whether this is fake… even though it is known that Halagappa has made a fortune from this, causing Sathya Sai Baba to reject him totally as a fraudulent beggar/thief.

This is a tinted glass receptical for rings and bangles etc., no crystal there at all (though Moreno thinks he knows better!).

from Gerald Moreno's page on himself from the 1st version of his web site 'vishvarupa.com'Gerald Moreno stated on his vishvarupa.com page about himself that he is very interested in crystals. That they possess special or mysterious energies is a known fallacy of the New Age lunatic fringe, yet he even tried to implicate me in the same interest (which I have never held) as a symptom of my gullibility!  To do so he falsely identifies as a crystal what is actually a plain glass ring-holder. It was photographed on my mantle piece and printed in my book ‘Source of the Dream’ which he copied (without permission)  and annotated as being a ‘crystal’. This is a typical mindless ‘tit-for-tat’ reaction by Moreno because I have publicised that Sathya Sai Baba has a broad lunatic fringe. After his imagining a crystal on my former shrine, I realised that he is a prime candidate for the lunatic fringe himself.

Another member of this fanatical lunatic fringe is Moreno’s closest side-kick collaborator Lisa de Witt, who claims to have communications from Shirdi Sai Baba, Sathya Sai Baba and Jesus… plus angels. She is in obsessional denial about Sai Baba’s failings’ and expresses herself in a particularly low-minded and verbally polluted way, persecuting all critics of Sathya Sai Baba (calling them ‘persecutors’ of Sai Baba).

Gerald Moreno – in the Sathya Sai Baba lunatic fringe The night visitation by Sathya Sai Baba to a  paralysed and scared Gerald Moreno… and its consequences: a private interview where he was oiled “on the lower stomach” by SB, and since then he has ensure that he has no other future than fanatical defense of the impossible by any means, foul or fouler in attacking all apostates of Sai Baba (and also Muktananda, Ammachi and others) See also  Gerald Moreno – further inducted into the Sathya Sai Baba fold

Sathya Sai Baba’s broad lunatic fringe There are a number of devotees of Sai Baba who claim to have been Mary Magdalene in a previous incarnation. There have also been many such who lived out their adult lives in psychiatric institutions. Among Sai followers there are persons who claim – that they are reincarnations of famous persons from history – or have been told by Sathya Sai Baba that they were Vivekananda, St. Francis of Assissi, Radha, the monkey god Hanuman  and others in past lives. There is also a ‘teeth-clacking’ medium who gets messages from Sai Baba by the involuntary clacking of his teeth!

Sai Baba and the lunatic fringe Self-professed Danish clairvoyant claimed to live on light (no food), meet angels but developed ‘psychic problems’ and was ‘saved’ by Sai Baba!

Lunatic Devotee claims he is Prema Sai For the uninitiated, Prema Sai is the predicted next incarnation of the Sai Baba avatar, but will not appear until after Sathya Sai Baba’s death… so ‘John Ramakrishnan’ is rather premature!

Truly lunatic Sai Baba fringe + video link Stephanie Relfe is another devotee who is a disgrace to the Sai Baba fold – such disturbed people with cognitive derangement are well over-represented among Sathya Sai Baba followers and defenders, compared to the general population.

Deceiving ‘devotee’ makes bogus image of Sai in the Moon In the general desperation to prove that Sai Baba appeared on the moon as he claimed he would, devotees – particularly Indian follower – have created images with his face superimposed on a photo of the moon!

More Sathya Sai Baba Moon Madness An account  by one Ganapati about Sai Baba supposedly  picking up a wood-apple and miraculously transforming it into the moon – a translucent sphere reflecting the sunlight. Such incredibly fanciful beliefs can only be entertained by persons without their feet on the ground and their heads in the clouds.

Sathya Sai Baba claimed to be a living God and, to millions, his word is truth; his ability to bring clean water and healthcare to thousands, proof of divinity. In a programme that explores the nature of belief, This World travels from India to California, where the generation whose devotion and donations helped Sai Baba to power is unravelling at the seams. Hard Rock Café owner Isaac Tigrett sent Sai Baba’s message around the world by making the Godman’s Love All Serve All mantra the corporate slogan of his multimillion-dollar empire. He now has to confront the fact that his God may have been a sexual abuser. This World features the story of a family who gave their entire lives to a man they believed was God, only to discover he was exacting a terrible price: the sexual innocence of their son. In an intimate and powerful portrait a family talk openly about their betrayal and the man who controlled their lives. “The being which I called Sai Baba, the living God that I had taken into my heart, had been truly abusing my son, for so long. I felt completely betrayed,” says Marissa, a former devotee. Another, Alaya, says: “I remember him saying, ‘If you don’t do what I say, your life will be filled with pain and suffering’.”

This programme is the first to film inside Sai Baba’s Ashram for a number of years and aims to come closer to the true “face of God” than ever before. PR

Sathya Sai Baba’s influence on the Indian Judiciary

Posted by robertpriddy on September 6, 2010

Basava Premanand probed deeply into various claims by devotees that Sathya Sai Baba had ‘fixed’ the judiciary to protect them. His voluminous correspondence with court authorities at all levels show how he was given a pathetic run-around and that his questions were never answered by anyone, but referred to others. In no remotely democratic judiciary would this be tolerated. But then, everyone knows that the Indian courts are among the worst in the world for doing justice – or even allowing petitions to be heard. T.N. Seshan himself complained of the undemocratic state of affairs in India when he was Chief Election Commissioner Failings in Indian Justice – by ex-Chief Election Commissioner T.N. Seshan, though he admitted it had improved somewhat later on. Meanwhile, many other level-headed observers and academics in India deplore the judiciary, the red tape, the corruption (paying to jump the endless queue of cases and much more). It is widely proven that corruption flourishes at most levels in the Indian administration, and not least at the very top!

DID SATYA SAI BABA INFLUENCE THE JUDICIARY? (by Basava Premanand)

In 1981 I came across the 48th divine dawn Birthday Number of the News Chronicle dated 23.11.1973 so also the souvenir published by Sri Satya Sai Seva Samithi, Bombay titled “AT THE LOTUS FEET 1968”.

The article “Those early years” authored by Y.R. Ghorpade, EX Maharaja of Sandur attracted my attention as it contained a defamatory sentence defaming our Judiciary.

“BEFORE I COULD MENTION THIS PROBLEM TO BABA HE SAID THAT I NEED NOT WORRY ABOUT THE SUPREME COURT CASE AS HE WOULD SEE THAT THE CASE IS DECIDED IN MY FAVOUR. AND, SURE ENOUGH IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS I HEARD THAT WE HAD WON IN THE SUPREME COURT.”

To get the details of the case I wrote to the Ex Maharaja of Sandur and though he kept mum on the case advised me to write to Sri Sathya Sai Books & Publications, Prasanthinilayam.

From his silence on my questions, I knew that there was something interesting in the case and I started searching for the case in the Supreme Court Law Journals and I succeeded in my search in 1984. The said judgement was given on 6.5.1966 by Justices K.N.Wanchoo, J.C,Shah and S.M.Sikri in civil appeal Nos. 1l33 & 1134. Hon.J.C.Shah gave a dissenting judgment dismissing the petitions of Y.R. Ghorpade while other two Hon.Justices allowed the appeals with costs at Supreme Court and the High Court.

When I went through the magazines published by Satya Sai Baba, it was found that YR. Ghorpade and his wife did visit Puttaparthi in October 1965.

As a person interested in the welfare of the Judiciary,I wrote to the Hon’ble Chief Justice of India to give me the names of the Hon.Justices of the Supreme Court and the High Courts and the addresses of the High Courts in India, so that I could write to them to know their reactions in this matter individually and collectively. The Asst. Registrar of the Hon. Supreme Court rejected my request.

After collecting the names of the Hon’ble Justices from the Law Journals, a petition was sent to the Hon’ble Chief Justice of India and the Companion Justices of the Hon. Supreme Court on 2.2.1985 for answers to the following questions and the reply was that “no action can be taken on the papers sent by me as such the same have been lodged”!

Can a person like Satya Sai Baba who proclaims himself to be the reborn Shirdi Sai Baba and Sarva Daivatva Swaroopa -the god of all the gods by showing some tricks as miracles without ‘permitting investigations to the truthfulness of his miracles influence the Hon.Justices in Supreme Court to favour the persons whom they want?

2. what is the part played by Satya Sai Baba and through whom, in seeing that this case is decided in favour of YR. Ghorpade?

3. Have the Hon. Justices, gone against Law and Justice while the case was decided in favour of YR. Ghorpade?

4. If what is narrated in the article is false what action the Hon. Supreme Court would take against Y.R. Ghorpade and News Chronicle, Ludhiana for publishing this article?

It is now for the Lawyers, Jurists, Judiciary etc., to find if Sathya Sai Baba had influenced the Hon.Supreme Court to get the case decided in favour of Y.R.Ghorpade, and if not to take contempt of court action against YR.Ghorpade. Or if the Hon. Justices have been influenced then to pass necessary orders in this respect so that people of ‘India have confidence in the Judiciary.

It was surprising that one of the Hon.Justices met Sai Baba ‘when this case was pending and later Sikri &Co., appointed as Lawyers of Y.R. Ghorpade and his business empire. (p. 74-5)

Subject: hello

Hope you would have got my last mail.I thought i would add bit extra to that material. As per my observation the baba has nothing to do with his western devotees faith in them. What he wants is their money. I remember one or two words clearly spoken by him to his very close form boys. He told them”follow me and be with me . I will give you whatever you want.Why only indian women… I shall give you white women”These are the way westerners are addressed inside. He has no basic understanding of the western way of life and follows the very rugged thought process of seeing things viciously.He has no regards for individuals whatsoever. I also remember once during kodai visit we were taken to the bhajan hall side of the bunglow and suddenly called back. The issue was that a lady of european descent who wanted to see swami desperately had sneeked in to SB’s room. I didn’t understand few things. How could a lady get past the security which is posted so heavily over there. Moreover while going to kodai there was the famous sandalwood smuggler veerappan who had sent his men to seek SB’s blessings and even during the kodai visit there were rumours from very close sources that LTTEmen (trouble shooters in lanka) had come to visit SB for his blessings.

Sb was always furious inside and blaming Col Joga Rao for taking away money amounting to lakhs but on the other hand he was always friendly to joga rao and would tolerate even his non-veg jokes about women . This from a person who preaches total sexual celibacy?Of course he wants his close male lovers to be celebates and have sex only with him otherwise he gtes annoyed.But he doesn’t care if they have discreet relations with other boys in the hostel.

Hi friends,
I remember somethings more about baba. I remember clearly how when he once failed to notice any erection as he waived his hand around my area and all the while looking at it, baba scolded me saying i have weak will and no mental strength at all. I know he dislikes lady like hell and when his close devotee at kodai kanal got him sweets as a son was born, baba only commented that even dogs have puppies and  do they really celebrate etc. I only think he would be happy as he would be having one more boy in the future to fondle.
I also recollect as to how happy SB was when michael jackson had visited india somewhere in september and was trying all ways and means to contact him(- exactly i don’t know. Baba also eagerly was telling everyone that michael jackson is his devotee and wears a sai baba ring.I think he got frantic telephone calls made to MJ as he would tell us the inside form boys that MJ was regularly ringing him up so as to stage a concert at puttaparthi. Baba inside often compares himself to queen elizabeth and One thing is sure he never likes girls or ladies but thinks himself to be a lady. G.Venkatraman is a fool and a thorough crook and he knows of all the things . I don’t know why this idiot supports SB so vehemently. Bye for now.
