‘Genital Oiling’ by Sathya Sai Baba + video evidence
Posted by robertpriddy on April 21, 2009
Reports about Sathya Sai Baba’s “genital oiling” – which has been established most soundly as factual, even by his defender, Gerald Moreno, will never go away, and they prove that Sathya Sai Baba broke Indian law in unsolicited sexual interference s of many boys and young men. The actuality of these genital oilings has been admitted by top office-bearing devotees including Thorbjørn Meyer and Steen Piculell plus Sai VIPs, such as Jørgen Trygved – all of Denmark.(link to overview with video evidence)
The instances of several boys was taken by devotees as some kind of ‘re-channeling of sexual energies’ until the full spate of testimonies appeared from 1999 describing how this was often combined with outright sexual abuses including oral and anal sex. It is in this light that all these “oilings” by Sathya Sai Baba cannot be considered as other than sexual grooming for possible sex. This includes, of course, the interference Gerald Joe Moreno has described that he underwent. even though he felt he was being taken notice of for the first time in his life and which gave him a lift of spirits. He has made clear his confusion about the meaning of the oiling he was illegally subjected to (without asking for it or being asked if he wanted it!).
The case of Gerald Joe Moreno: Because Gerald Moreno defends Sai Baba so vehemently, he invites scrutiny of his own accounts, not least since he defended him even while believing him to be a sexual abuser, which is a clear self-indictment showing Moreno’s great confusion or else personal immorality. It does not help his case that he calls me a “pervert”, along with several others who have spoken out, including Reinier van der Sandt and Sanjay Dadlani. That shows his confusion and virulent anger as well as his inability to convince of his subjective and misguided views on the genital oilings. This whole bizarre and unpleasant issue MUST be aired in public, not least since there are many who cannot speak out about this in India without risking much, even assassination (which occurred in 1993 in Sai Baba’s bedroom) and also because all higher office-bearers in the Sathya Sai Organization – and very many ordinary members – have since 2000 been deeply involved in the cover-up of every detail as far as they can manage it.
Account by Sharon Purcell, mother of Sathya Purcell – as recorded by ex-devotee Glen Meloy, which throws light on the issue:-
(In 1993) Sathya Sai Purcell went to India with Hal Honig’s group of boys. One week later, Sharon followed her son to India with her friend, Jill. They got one interview. On that same trip, Sharon told me that Sai Baba had molested 3 of Satch’s friends in private interviews which caused him to tell his Mother he no longer believed in Sai Baba. One of the boys in his group who had his genitals oiled by Sai Baba was Josh Kintz, son of Mahri and Bruce Kintz, long term members of the former Cherry Valley, California Center under the leadership of the late Joy Thomas and now currently active members of the Hemet, California Center.
Another friend, Jed Geyerhahn also shared his molestation experience with Sathya Sai Purcell and as most of you know Jed has also publicly allowed his molestation experiences to be published in Faye and David Bailey’s writings called “The Findings”. There was a third boy in that same group, but we don’t at this moment have his name. All of these victims are now of legal age and no longer considered minors.
As if the molestations were not enough, the infamous shootings at Puttaparthi occurred while Sathya and his Mother were still there and young Sathya remembers vividly having to jump out of the way when they were still sweeping the blood from the temple later that morning. Honig’s group of boys had been allowed to be on the verandah for morning darshan. Unfortunately, Sharon said she mistakingly believed at the time that Sai Baba was merely rechanneling the sexual energies of the boys into spiritual energy and she continued to believe in Sai Baba for 7 more years.
This continued until May 2000 when a close female friend told her a pathetic and tragic story of how her husband had his genitals oiled by Sai Baba in 1968. She told Sharon about all the negative stories concerning Sai Baba on the Internet and how her husband, who was an intimate friend of Iris and Howard Murphet, had been asked by Sai Baba to go back to the USA to study and get all the necessary credentials and experience to be Baba’s personal airplane pilot.
