Sathya Sai Baba’s wide ‘lunatic fringe’ and Moreno
Posted by robertpriddy on September 13, 2010
Gerald Joe Moreno, who believes Sathya Sai Baba is at least on a par with Jesus, also with Swami Premananda (in prison under two life sentences for rape and murder, confirmed after appeal to the Supreme Court of India) – all for Moreno qualifying as being ‘vishvarupa’ or incarnations of the Divine (see his http://vishvsarupa.com site). A person who defends both convicted murderers and sex abusers and government-protected criminals is clearly beyond the fringe of normality.
Moreno is also a believer in the holy power of ‘mandalas’. He has made many images of mandalas (produced with IT software) and therefore he calls himself a ‘professional artist’, no doubt in desperation to pretend to some qualification, since he has no others. These images represent the imaginary ‘chackras’ or mystical centres which are supposedly opened when the mystical ‘serpent power/ (kundalini) is awakened and rises along an invisible channel in the spine up to the brain. This is a totally non-empirical and speculative mysticism, much loved by would be spiritual and holy persons who accept on faith from their gurus or the vague and fantastic literature that all this have a basis in reality. I have never believed in the kundalini other than as a symbolism for ordering various spiritual dogmas and a numinous idea, but Moreno is entirely under the spell of this and a vast amount of Hindu superstition and religious trickery that goes along with it. Gerald Moreno tries to create the impression that he knows all about these chackras and the kundalini, but his entire output demonstrates that he has far too many bad qualities to fulfil the supposed requirement for the task as it is described by its mystical proponents.
Of course, Moreno is a firm believer in Divine miracles. This began with him supposedly being visited literally in the flesh by Sathya Sai Baba in his bedroom at night in New Mexico, when Sai Baba was demonstrably in India. (Moreno was paralysed at the time and in great fear – symptoms of ‘narcolepsy’ usually following sleep deprivation whereby dream contents appear as real waking events).
Finally, he denies that Sathya Sai Baba’s oiling of his “lower stomach” in private in the inner interview room was a case of sexual molestation, even though he cannot deny that such an act fulfils all the requirements of sexual abuse under Indian (and most foreign) law, and that it is widely reported as grooming for sexual relations of most unpleasant kinds by over 30 testifiers!
Moreno is also believes that Sathya Sai Baba’s ‘holy nectar’ (amrit) is unearthly and is manifested by Sathya Sai Baba (as he believes all other objects claimed by Sai Baba are, or else he would have refuted any bogus claims surely?). Moreno states he wishes amrit were available on the market as he would buy “gallons”! In fact it is nothing other than tea rose essence (added to sugar water), while devotees largely believe it is a manifested substance – a blessing from God himself which may lead to their escaping rebirth on the wheel of life! He has images of vibuthi allegedly manifesting on pictures of Sathya Sai Baba at Halagappa’s orphanage [i.e. the ‘thief’s temple’], but he never questions whether this is fake… even though it is known that Halagappa has made a fortune from this, causing Sathya Sai Baba to reject him totally as a fraudulent beggar/thief.
Gerald Moreno stated on his vishvarupa.com page about himself that he is very interested in crystals. That they possess special or mysterious energies is a known fallacy of the New Age lunatic fringe, yet he even tried to implicate me in the same interest (which I have never held) as a symptom of my gullibility! To do so he falsely identifies as a crystal what is actually a plain glass ring-holder. It was photographed on my mantle piece and printed in my book ‘Source of the Dream’ which he copied (without permission) and annotated as being a ‘crystal’. This is a typical mindless ‘tit-for-tat’ reaction by Moreno because I have publicised that Sathya Sai Baba has a broad lunatic fringe. After his imagining a crystal on my former shrine, I realised that he is a prime candidate for the lunatic fringe himself.
Another member of this fanatical lunatic fringe is Moreno’s closest side-kick collaborator Lisa de Witt, who claims to have communications from Shirdi Sai Baba, Sathya Sai Baba and Jesus… plus angels. She is in obsessional denial about Sai Baba’s failings’ and expresses herself in a particularly low-minded and verbally polluted way, persecuting all critics of Sathya Sai Baba (calling them ‘persecutors’ of Sai Baba).
Gerald Moreno – in the Sathya Sai Baba lunatic fringe The night visitation by Sathya Sai Baba to a paralysed and scared Gerald Moreno… and its consequences: a private interview where he was oiled “on the lower stomach” by SB, and since then he has ensure that he has no other future than fanatical defense of the impossible by any means, foul or fouler in attacking all apostates of Sai Baba (and also Muktananda, Ammachi and others) See also Gerald Moreno – further inducted into the Sathya Sai Baba fold
Sathya Sai Baba’s broad lunatic fringe There are a number of devotees of Sai Baba who claim to have been Mary Magdalene in a previous incarnation. There have also been many such who lived out their adult lives in psychiatric institutions. Among Sai followers there are persons who claim – that they are reincarnations of famous persons from history – or have been told by Sathya Sai Baba that they were Vivekananda, St. Francis of Assissi, Radha, the monkey god Hanuman and others in past lives. There is also a ‘teeth-clacking’ medium who gets messages from Sai Baba by the involuntary clacking of his teeth!
Sai Baba and the lunatic fringe Self-professed Danish clairvoyant claimed to live on light (no food), meet angels but developed ‘psychic problems’ and was ‘saved’ by Sai Baba!
Lunatic Devotee claims he is Prema Sai For the uninitiated, Prema Sai is the predicted next incarnation of the Sai Baba avatar, but will not appear until after Sathya Sai Baba’s death… so ‘John Ramakrishnan’ is rather premature!
Truly lunatic Sai Baba fringe + video link Stephanie Relfe is another devotee who is a disgrace to the Sai Baba fold – such disturbed people with cognitive derangement are well over-represented among Sathya Sai Baba followers and defenders, compared to the general population.
Deceiving ‘devotee’ makes bogus image of Sai in the Moon In the general desperation to prove that Sai Baba appeared on the moon as he claimed he would, devotees – particularly Indian follower – have created images with his face superimposed on a photo of the moon!
More Sathya Sai Baba Moon Madness An account by one Ganapati about Sai Baba supposedly picking up a wood-apple and miraculously transforming it into the moon – a translucent sphere reflecting the sunlight. Such incredibly fanciful beliefs can only be entertained by persons without their feet on the ground and their heads in the clouds.
