Can Sathya Sai Baba be deceived? And if so…

Posted by robertpriddy on February 2, 2010

Here is a remarkable sentence from the book ‘ANYATHA SARANAM NASTHI’ [“Other than you refuge there is none”] by one of his most devoted lifelong admirers, Smt. Vijaya Kumari (known as ‘Vijayamma)’ reports that Sathya Sai Baba said:-



Direct quote of Sathya Sai Baba’s words by Vijaya Kumari in her authenticated self-biography.

Not only is it self-contradictory, but  from a self-pronounced “Embodiment of Pure Love” is plain talk! It exhibits either sheer duplicity or serious split-mindedness.  This lady was one of Professor Erlendur Haraldsson’s main witnesses on the various miracles of Sai Baba, being interviewed extensively by him for his book ‘Miracles are my visiting cards’ (also published under the title ‘Modern Miracles’). She is regarded with great reverence in much of the Indian Sai Baba movement due to her having been a child when Sathya Sai Baba was a rampant teenager in Puttaparthi (as she portrays him), leading his gang around and confronting adults with details from their private married lives etc. Her book is worth reading because she tells rather frankly of the younger Sai Baba’s behaviour, including his propensity to tell many untruths, to stir up trouble and –  last but far from least – how he relentlessly and regularly beat her baby son, Prudvi, only 2 years old – and for long periods. The son later became a ‘favourite’ and one can see Sai Baba’s proprietary relationship to him in the photo.

See text where Vijayamma details Sai Baba’s draconian punishments of her baby!

Gerald Moreno is entirely mistaken about my reference to the Vijayamma account. We see, yet again, as in myriad instances, Moreno’s penchant for untruthfulness and tendentious deviance from fact. There is desperation in his mammoth effort to defend his idol. There is his tendency to rationalize anything which would cast Sai Baba in an unfavourable light. For example, Moreno has himself related how Sai Baba “oiled on the lower stomach” (in private), and has given spurious rationalizations of the experience – explanations which any responsible citizen (and especially parents of children) would find objectionable. Adult touching of this kind is against the laws of India just as it is in many other countries. Gerald Moreno blunders and misrepresents me in stating that I am ‘smearing’ Sathya Sai Baba. It is nothing of the sort, for I have reported exactly what Vijayamma has written.

Moreno will most likely pass over the importance of this fact in silence, I expect, as he does with nearly all those undeniable facts about the man he admires so totally as to attack the outspoken Sai-critics full-time including harassing them (and sometimes their children!) in their community and personal lives. He condones everything Sathya Sai Baba says and does, for he never raises the slightest criticism of any of it, rather promoting him through his sickeningly obsequious but also hate-inflamed web log [entitled with unconscious irony “Sathya Sai Baba – Love, Light and Spirituality”]! What he lacks in facts, valid arguments and honesty he makes up for in seeking ever new avenues to spread his constant flow of spiteful disinformation and libel further onto Google – such as the Internet Thesaurus and! Meanwhile, I report about him and what he has written himself. HIS is a smear campaign, not what critics are doing! The work of critics such as Barry Pittard, Brian Steel, Kevin R.D. Shepherd stands on its own merits and is far remote from the libelous, defaming and demeaning language which is to be seen on almost any page that Moreno writes.

Moreno claims that I was threatened with a million dollar lawsuit (by a half-crazed Indian called Rebello). He knows this is a lie. I was never threatened, not even by mail – let alone from any lawyer. Let him try the impossible now, to prove his statement… with any genuine documentation. Rebello claims he wrote to a server and threatened them. Even that was never forwarded to me. Likewise, no critic of Sathya Sai Baba has ever been sued, nor even threatened in any credible legal way (except once by an incompetent Indian posing as a lawyer whose bluff was called immediately by no reply), yet Moreno claims to know better! He loves to grab a half-truth and turn it into a full lie, and then to claim that it is critics (whether former devotees or reputable media) who are engaged in falsification. He crafted his wholly untrue account simply so as to try to get oxygen for his libel pages… as he always does, even if the point concerned is utterly trivial, he will post it here, there and often everywhere he can.

Though never threatened legally, however, I have received death threats from Sai followers, as proved by the comment made on this blog site – see the response from a Sai defender on the blog here). The person who made the threat was reported to the Oslo Police… no doubt another Sai coward hiding behind an assumed name and using the e-mail of a large educational institution.

Sathya Sai Baba Man Gerald Moreno – Banned By Eight Wikpedia Editors

Note: Moreno defended Sathya Sai Baba for years while believing him to be a sexual abuser – see his own words and denying all negative facts about him. He is in deep denial, not least having himself been molested or ‘groomed’ through being “oiled on the lower stomach” (in private)
