Gerald Moreno backs lying saboteur M. K. Yachendra

Posted by robertpriddy on April 19, 2009

Yachendra (aka Murali Krishna,  the grandson of the Raja of Venkatagiri see here) made a very extended, vicious and constantly lying attempt to sabotage the Sai Exposure work. Firstly he tries to infiltrate it through the International Sai Petition by pretending to be a teacher who had organised students sexually abused by Sai Baba. Since the Sai Petition Administration carefully checks all suspicious stories and avoids posting which are suspicious (or deletes those which are evident sabotage attempts and lies), ‘Murali Krishna’ was totally unsuccessful. He was asked to contact Barry Pittard and Basava Premanand with his ‘information’… this led to a massive exchange of e-mails in which he compounded his lies to such an extent that it is almost incredible anyone would go to such lengths. He claimed that there were plans by the Sai authorities to murder Premanand, that Sai Baba and his officials had massive Swiss bank accounts, that he had organized a large group of students sexually abused by Sai Baba and much more like that…

However, Premanand and Pittard smelled a rat (correctly. indeed) from the start but decided to played up to his pretences, realising that this would be a major exposure of the methods of close Sai Baba devotees – especially one who has been a student and temporary ‘teacher’ at a Sai college and whose family has always had the closest connection to Sai Baba and his authorities.  View the content of some of the very many e-mail contacts with Murali Krishna to appreciate the sheer extent and despicable nature of his lies (which he later admitted – indeed boasted – were lies when he ‘came clean’ on Sai Baba bulletin boards about always having been a totally devoted devotee. What Murali Krishna Yachendra did in different names is documented in the book ‘Sabotage by Murali Krishna Yachendra’ published by B. Premanand (see Indian Skeptic booklist).

Murali Krishna Yachendra is promoted as a genuine and honest person by Gerald Joe Moreno, himself an unreliable and emotionally zealous commentator on all Sathya Sai Baba matters, who defends Sathya Sai Baba and the International Sathya Sai Organization at every turn (see Moreno is himself a  petition saboteur and unscrupulous attacker of all critics and ex-followers of Sai  Baba – so he and Yachendra are a case of “birds of a feather flock together”.  Moreno has himself also admitted openly that he was “oiled” – oil applied by hand to his “lower stomach” in privacy by Sathya Sai Baba ( see Moreno and sexual abuse, denial and subterfuge) where one can also see the posting he had  for years  on his website stating that he believed Sathya Sai Baba to be a sexual abuser (yet defending in him in every possible way all the while!)

Incidentally, Murali Krishna Yachendra was one of Prof. Erlendur Haraldsson’s main sources in his book ‘Miracles Are My Visiting Cards’. His massive documented lying to Premanand raises serious doubts about how reliable his fanciful accounts were when he was interviewed by Haraldsson.

Sathya Sai Baba on going slowly blind from “sensual pleasures”

Posted by robertpriddy on April 19, 2009

Correcting humanity?

Correcting humanity?

“Today man is putting his senses to misuse and as a result his body is becoming weaker day by day. He shortens his life-span by his unsacred vision and by indulgence in sensual pleasures. Lakhs of light rays in his eyes are being destroyed because of his unsacred vision. That is the reason what man is developing eye defects.” (Sathya Sai Baba, discourse on 5/7/2001 Sanathana Sarathi, August 2001,  p. 226)


Comment:  This is the kind of hilarious non-scientific doctrine that students at Sai Baba colleges and ‘university’ have to tolerate. It is so irrational that it could not even qualify as pseudo-science! How many hundreds of thousands of rays of light are being destroyed in people’s eyes, one may ask?

So man shortens his life span? No, there have been vast extensions of human life span made through science and its resultant benefits in recent centuries improvements! Age expectancy has risen progressively in almost all countries in the world, notably excepting Russia since the Soviet State fell and places like Zimbabwe. That man’s body is becoming weaker day by day or his eyes are being destroyed is sheer poppycock! Thatsensual pleasures are the source of physical weakness  – and the root of all evil… is just primitive superstition and base puritan fundamentalism.


Bjorn Lomborg writes in his 2001 book “The Sceptical Environmentalist”: “Fewer and fewer people are starving. In 1900 we lived for an average of 30 years; today we live for 67. According to the UN we have reduced poverty more in the last 50 years than we did in the preceding 500, and it has been reduced in practically every country.”So, any shortcomings in world health certainly have quite other causes than unsacred vision!

Interestingly, Sathya Sai Baba has himself admitted that he was blind in one eye for years because of his having an accident with his hair-dryer! I can just see him using his hair-dryer daily.

View a list of a whole range of false and absurd “teachings” – with comments –  by this uneducated villager who claims Divine Omniscience.
