Another communication from the Indian ex-student using the pen-name ‘Raman Sharma’ (whose full identity is known to us with certainty but who is in need of continued protection from aggressive Sai Baba devotees). This testimony makes it evident that the extent of Sathya Sai Baba’s reported sexual activities, and his true nature behind ‘the curtains and doors of shame’ is far worse than has generally been recognized.
Hi Conny, Nice to receive your email. I do hope you are also forwarding them to Robert Priddy. In this email I wish to bring you some of the personal opinion Sai Baba had about preachers of other religions which I have heard him repeat many times to select few form boys (including myself, of course). Many times he did speak these opinions of his personally to us when he or his close servitors sodomized others.
Firstly, Swami was of the firm opinion that Jesus Christ was a homosexual and that he had sex frequently with other twelve disciples or amongst themselves.I have never heard him say anything about the controversy regarding Mary Magdalene as it is difficult for him to accept normal heterosexuality.
Secondly, Sai Baba held the view that lord Krishna had homosexual relations with Arjuna and they were therefore very close friends.
Thirdly, he brings the same associations to Sri Shirdi Sai Baba of whom he professes to be a reincarnation.
Fourthly, according to swami, Sri Aurobindo had sexual relations with Mother of the Aurobindo ashram and when Sai Baba visited them in the 1940s, he took Sri Aurobindo to task for leading such a life. Similarly, he firmly believed that Swami Vivekananda had sexual relations with sister Nivedita and Yogananda had such relations with Daya Mata. He also blamed Iskon Prabhupada for bringing promiscuity in his kirtans and open mixing of men and women.
Since my eighth standard I had sex with few of his form boys and they all told me that swami called it ‘Love’ and only the “invisible Swami” knows and not the physical swami. I am ashamed of my life then. I always thought that I was a sinner, till my post graduation after becoming a form boy myself. Swami knew of my relations with one or two close form boys.
I remember one elder brother who used to hug me and kiss me a lot when I was in eighth at Parthi. He was very violent while having sex but i developed a feeling of attraction towards him. One day He pulled my organ very hard. It started to bleed and he ran away. I felt like fainting yet, I collected myself and went to Mr. Sooryanarayana, the office accountant and told him that I had fallen down while urinating and so was bleeding. He gave me an ointment and after some days of applying it, I became normal. I really started enjoying this kind of sex in hostel after ninth Class. Our batch had many form boys and one boy who was close to swami then opened his underwear in front of me,of course it was strange for I had considered him pure. A teacher Mr. Shailesh Srivastava spoke many time in our class as parayana on Baba saying that Swami was beyond reproach even if he commits adultery or murder as he is God and we must have full faith in him always. Though I developed such habits, I still considered myself a sinner and thought myself purified whenever I got a chance to hand him a letter or to touch his feet.(it was only much later n my post graduation first year that i came to know that swami was doing all such things with close form boys and I started t feel the unnaturalness of the whole thing). Consequently, when after my own investigation and further knowledge it was made clear to me that I had come toot near fire and must go back. I was left all alone in the world…
Let me tell you I am ashamed of my past but I would like secrecy for the sake of my family and myself. Already I have had few problems with the members of the organisations. I will reveal further as I feel people must know what creature SB is but I do not wish to divulge my name or whereabouts for the sake of my family.
I had given up the dirty habit I developed at Parthi. I do visit the Shirdi Sai temple as I feel that Shri Shirdi Sai Baba must not be confused with Sathya (or should I say ASATHYA, FALSE Sai Baba of Puttaparthi). One fine day, I got the Inspiration in a Shirdi Baba temple. I had a very strong experience before that to burn this dirty habit in his dhuni and focus my thoughts on leading a good life. I am sorry as I feel I will hurt many sentiments but truth is truth and must be made known.
The depth of self-examination of this unfortunate victim of Sai Baba’s terrible college regime is unrelenting and his admirable honesty is plain to see. It gives a taste of the personal problems with which so many former students of Sathya Sai Baba have to struggle – in similar ways to the countless victims of Roman Catholic and other sectarian sexual abuses on a major scale. There is no wonder that most of them are so far unready and unwilling to stand forth with their evidence, considering the current hateful climate against defectors and dissidents among so many remaining followers. Above all, since ex-students have been murdered, virtually under the nose of Sathya Sai Baba who knew all that was happening while they were relentlessly executed in his bedroom apartment, it is not safe to speak up in India and may not be so for a long time yet. We in the exposé have long known of such matters through this kind of testimony, only a portion of which has been posted previously. At some date in future the Sathya Sai Baba viper’s nest will be exposed to a much wider extent than today, and large-scale financial compensation may well be sought eventually.
It is, moreover, known from an impeccable research report into sexual and physical abuse in India that homosexual child abuse is rife in India. Study on Child Abuse: INDIA 2007 About this damning report, the BBC commented: “A study into child abuse in India has found that more than half the children questioned said they had been sexually abused. Researchers spoke to more than twelve thousand children. Two-thirds said they’d experienced physical abuse. India’s Minister for Child Development, Renuka Chowdury, called the findings disturbing and said it was time to end the conspiracy of silence surrounding child abuse.” (Damian Grammaticus) The extremely revealing research was commissioned by the Ministry of Women and Child Development of the Government of India and carried out by independent researchers. It is supported by Save the Children and UNICEF and is a major and authoritative and highly representative social psychological study which goes into great detail and spans the whole of India: see the whole report in its systematic detail at http://www.wcd.nic.in/childabuse.pdf
Fifty-three per cent of India’s forty million children claim to have been sexually abused, mostly by a person known to them! That is over 20 million child victims!. But most of the children never reported their trauma, such is the taboo around the subject. Two-thirds of the children said they’d suffered physical abuse, in most cases being beaten by a parent or teacher. The government is now drawing up a new child protection law, but too late for millions whose childhood has already been lost. Those engaged in bringing the facts to light about Sathya Sai Baba have long been pointing out the extreme taboo around the subject of child sex abuse, especially the many abuses so widely and credibly alleged by many of the injured parties about Sathya Sai Baba’s sexual use of boys and young men.
Dr. Naresh Bhatia was a very close devotee and servitor of Sai Baba through many years and told the Daily Telegraph reporter, Mick Brown – plus various others who contacted him after he was banned from the ashram – that he had been a sexual partner of Sathya Sai Baba for years. He stated that he knew well that Sathya Sai had the sexual use of at least several of his college boys daily through many years! But because the prestige of so many gullible and self-seeking Indian politicians and judges, they have done everything to cover up the facts and have quashed all investigations and even a Supreme Court petition. Even Dr. Bhatia has – after physical threats – fallen silent and has been ‘persuaded’ by Sai officials not to dare to speak out further.
