Nectar of the Gods? Or tea rose essence & sugar water?

Posted by robertpriddy on March 29, 2009

Sathya Sai Baba’s liquid ‘amrit‘ (i.e. honey nectar), a supposedly holy substance like the Bible’s ‘ambrosia’, does have a distinctive odour. It can be collected by visitors from the doubtful ‘Thief’s Temple’ in South India near Mysore, run by a former baggage lifter called Halagappa, who has two small amulets with Sathya Sai Baba’s picture on that supposedly give off amrit into the jar in which they are kept. Those who have smelt and tasted amrit, know its very distinctive taste and smell, a smell which cloys the more the older it gets. Sai Baba so-called ‘amrita’ usually develops fungi if left in a bottle for some months.


Halagappa does not allow anyone to hold the medallions which supposedly exude ‘amrit‘ so they can’t see properly for themselves whether it runs out or whether it comes from his spoon, which he repeatedly uses to scrape the palm where the medallion lies, thus interfering with observation. He keeps tight hold of the chain attached to the medallion. Why?

He could hang the amrit-dripping medallions above a jar for some time so that everyone could see them dripping. But no.

He has not invited a single reputable, independent observer – such as scientists or engineers – to inspect the “miraculous amrit flow”.

The same lack of independent observation – allowing rigorous control of the surrounding conditions- applies to all the temples and houses where vibuthi and amrit are claimed to manifest? Not one single scientific experiment nor other unbiased examination of these phenomena has been allowed.

Despite this, numerous websites and blogs promote this with uncritical fervor as a major Sathya Sai Baba miracle – and even though Sathya Sai Baba has himself repeatedly wanrned people about going to Halagappa’s ‘Thief’s Temple’ orphanage.

All this speaks for itself – and loudly so!

Further analysis of amrit from Halagappa’s temple shrine

The so-called “Sai amrit” with its distinctive ‘perfume’ consists mainly in sugar water with added tea rose essence (possible with a touch of jasmine or sandalwood essence in some cases). Perfumed tea roses come in several varieties and many variants of perfume are made from them and are marketed (see here)

Sathya Sai’s Dato Jegathesan and smear campaigns

Posted by robertpriddy on March 29, 2009

My principle in writing about the suicide of Datuk J. Jegathesan’s son, and the death of his former wife, is to help establish the truth for it is in the public interest to question and to pose awkward questions that still seek an answer – it is not malicious, as has been claimed. Journalists investigate and expose such matters of life and death in the public interest. It is most important to report the facts and question beliefs, especially where deaths of devotees under suspicious and inauspicious circumstances are involved because Sathya Sai Baba has given a totally false promise to all devotees that they are under his personal protection (“Why fear when I am here?”). A very good way to beguile desperate and suffering people – as well as many other who want to believe they have an infallible protector. It has led to truly vast donations. Dato Jegathesan Jegathesan was an extremely close follower who has devoted his life to Sai Baba, and is everywhere presented as such and as a public figure of importance and influence, which he uses to the utmost to increase the following and finances of Sathya Sai Baba. So he must take the flak that comes of his own actions.

The big lie is stated thus: ‘Victory to the Lord of the Universe, Lord Sathya Sai, who destroys grief, evil and the miseries of life and who guards and protects devotees’ (posted by sathyasaibaba

That there is most likely a different, more complete and more truthful version of events to the one given by Jegathesan as there are many known cover-ups among top Sai officials, the Sathya Sai Organization and not least top politicians from Indian Presidents right down to countless official in the judiciary and the police. about every aspect of Sathya Sai Baba, who never reply to any actual or even putative facts put forward by the exposé.

I do not libel others, Jegathesan did in a widely-posted e-mail by calling the honest allegations by victims (of the many reported sexual abuses) “feces on the ground’. Datuk J. Jegathesan was informed of these  on Malaysian students  in 1980-81 and failed to practise any duty of care as leader of the Sathya Sai Organization in Malaysia. I have considerable documentation of this from a Malaysian former active promoter of Sai Baba who then carried out extensive investigations and had his worst suspicions confirmed by Malaysian and other students, not least at Prashanthi Nilayam where he visited them to find out whether there was any truth in their claims.

I have informed some of his family members who appealed to me months back, there are more piercing questions to me that I have not posted about on the matter, including some abusive e-mails from two of them which do them no service at all. They know I have already shown considerable restraint at their behest. Since at least one of them has already supported Moreno, now they should take great care not to support him further nor his massive smear and hate campaign against me [and against every other Sai critic].

Jegathesan characterised the many brave alleging victims of Sai Baba sexual abuses as “anti Sai forces”. The emotive term ‘forces’ implies that any justified criticisms of Sathya Sai Baba are organised by some large organised body, but they are definitely not! He wants to avoid ALL questioning and criticism – having also declared that all devotees should “plug their ears” as Ulysses did with wax! What kind of a mind does that? That of a fanaticical bigot who listens to nothing except praise and who believes he is a personal friend of the omnipotent God Incarnate.

Jegathesan says the critics to run a ‘vicious’ campaign. This includes many brave young men who – despite murders of devotees and massive persecutions of all critics of Sai Baba like David Bailey and others – have nonetheless stood forth with most credibly accurate and detailed accounts from all over the world about sexual abuse by Sathya Sai Baba! Jegathesan cannot discriminate between seekers of truth and justice and blind bigots involved in what is probably India’s greatest ever religious scam. Sathya Sai baba’s gigantic unfulfilled and unfulfillable promises to save his devotees, plus India and plus the entire world from immorality and corruption, wars and catastrophes are entirely bogus!
