Mr. V. Ramnath, Indian Administrative Service

In an infamous recent posting on a Yahoo sathyasaibaba group web discussion board, the Indian official Mr. V. Ramnath attacks me – the real reason being that I have rejected his Lord and Master as a deceiver and abuser of faith and more besides.
See the web page in which I rebut his posting point by point

Since my web page was posted, a comment submitted to the Guestbook on November 09, 2005 was unearthed. It evidently came from the same Mr. V. Ramnath at IP: which is at Imphal, Manipur, India (where he has been posted by the IAS at least twice).
However, the posting was saved in a file kept for libels, smears, and semi-literate comments – and therefore  was not posted of ExBaba’s Guestbook by the administrator, R. Van der Sandt. I now have a copy, which I recognise was evidently intended for myself, though I was not named. This comment bears witness to the incoherent, intensely superstitious and ill-informed pseudo-religious mind of Mr. Ramnath (and note his reference to “ignorant snorting pigs”), as follows:-

how can you be so ungrateful to your Guru and to yourGod? Nobody asked you to go to Baba. You went to him on your own.If he taught you that God is Love you should thank him for guiding you.You should learn to grow up and move on and be a Guru to other lost souls.There is so much suffering on Earth already and indeed so much more is to come due to past Karmas that it amazes me that you in the West continue to think act and judge others by your current double standards.Shame on you for your ingratitude! Shame on for filing all those false affidavits and at whose behest and for how many dollars?In your judgements on Baba you reveal yourself…….most of all your profound ignorance of the very difficult spiritual path to God.In Tantra it is an accepted article of beleif that as one nears the Divine one is attacked by Maya at its most ferocious,ie by Greed and Lust.One sees this happening around Baba all the time.This is why Baba has warned his devotees to go slow and keep a distance as life is a long journey.But western man is in a tearing hurry.He is Earths greatest consumer and wants Moksha as fast as his Nescafe.We live, besides in Kaliyuga ,the darkest of all Dark Ages for the spiritualists and a Golden Age for the Materialists.This Age is governed by the Guna,quality, Tamas.The Goddesses of Kaliyuga is the fearsome but beneign KALI who is really a kind and loving Mother Goddess.The spiritual path ,thus ,in Kaliyuga is governed by KALI, by TAMAS and by MAYA.You and I dear belovd bloody fools and ignorant snorting pigs are caught in this maze.So wake up and behave with some maturity.How long will you cling to the apron strings of your Guru for recognition?Work hard for those in real distress and all else will follow.


My comments: Ramnath makes untrue assumptions: I was actually invited by Sathya Sai Baba to go to India several times – including the first time, and – as the Coordinator of the Sathya Sai Organization – to attend his EHV course in 1987 and come to his 70th Birthday too. He accuses me of filing the affidavits (on sexual abuse by Sathya Sai Baba) – but I never filed a single one! Note also how he shows he believes in primitive Tantra (as I have already reported on my web page) and holds absurd ideas about ‘the path to God’ (incidentally, he is far more ignorant of Indian scripture than I, as weeks of discussion with him showed. He didn’t even know his own name stands for ‘Lord Ram’!!)

He believes I am clinging to the apron strings of Sathya Sai Baba for personal recognition – but he knows nothing of acting from conscience, as I do to warn people of the deceptions and abuses of his guru. He presumes to advise me to work hard for those in distress (and promises me I will get the spiritual fruits!!) … I have done much service in the Sathya Sai Organization for 18 years. However, my wife and I could not discover from weeks of discussion that he had ever done a stroke of work for Sathya Sai Baba (unless you consider singing bhajans out of tune to be work). It would not be surprising if readers should conclude that he is a hypocrite and a “brown sahib” hater of the West. He exhibits here many of the mental traits of prominent Indian devotees of Sathya Sai Baba… though there were – and perhaps still are – honourable exceptions.

Among other information was commonly known in India, according to Ramnath who was then working as an IAS Vigilance Officer at the construction firm B.E.M.L. in Bangalore, the person chosen by Sai Baba as Coordinator on behalf of the Sathya Sai Trust for the Water Project, Mr. K. Chakravarthi, had previously been sacked by the government due to embezzlement of large sums of money! Mr. Ramnath had almost nothing good to say about ANY of the ashram officials or Sai Baba’s servitors – on the contrary, he characterised Prashanthi Nilayam as “a snake pit of envy”.
