Genital oiling by Sathya Sai Baba

Posted by robertpriddy on December 20, 2012

For those who may still not be informed, the sexual activities of Sathya Sai Baba need to be held up for public scrutiny again and again.  It is an undisputed fact that Sathya Sai Baba took down the trousers of many young men and boys, including his students, intimately handled their genitals and rubbed a fragrant oil – also sometimes the ‘holy ash’ vibuthi. Numerous young men from the West, as well as various students, reported that SB also rubbed vigorously so as to (try to) cause an erection, often while or after kissing them voluptuously on the mouth. The reports make very clear that this was Sai baba’s way of ‘grooming’ boys and young men for possible sexual relations with him.

All such things, known to many of the ashram residents to be fact, were long covered up by a number of top leaders in the Satya Sai Organisation! In most countries with a reasonable system of law, the touching of genitals under such circumstances is illegal, being punishable other than when done by a doctor on prior consent of the patient. These genital oilings were undisputed facts, even among Organization officials. Both the former European Central Coordinator of the Sathya Sai Organisation, Thorbjørn Meyer and another Danish Sai VIP, Jørgen Trygved admitted on National Danish TV News that these oilings take place (both men are now deceased). Thorbjørn Meyer  called this act by Satya Sai Baba an “age old Indian oiling ceremony” ( Thomas Meyer, a son of Thorbjørn Meyer, informed me that his younger brother was oiled on the genitals by Sai Baba, also while under the age of consent at 14 years!  He was also instructed not to tell his father! Thorbjørn Meyer never deigned to explain why a number of victims of these strictly unlawful interventions have been subjected to the molestation “ceremony” several times, and were never even asked if they wished for it or if they knew what it may or may not have signified. One student from Sathya Sai Baba’s college at Prashanthi informed the exposé that Sai Baba kept a sponge in a dish under his chair in the private interview room, so he could seem to ‘materialise’ oil just by squeezing the sponge previously.

Devotees of Sai Baba believe that it was done to control sexual feelings and/or to raise the mythical ‘kundalini’ or sleeping serpent which supposedly can raise a person to an enlightened and blissful condition (only very temporarily). Trygved stated that this oiling reduced the sexual energies of young men. A well-known author, Paul William Roberts stated in his book ‘Empire of the Soul’ that he was oiled by Sai Baba “on the chest” – but much later admitted in e-mails that it was on the perineum, i.e. between the gonads and the anus. He also claimed it had a great blissful effect on his consciousness.

Those would-be “spiritual leaders” never explained how the oil works its magic, how they know anything about it or why has ever reduced a testosterone level.  Nor can they say why women have been wholly excluded from these supposedly stupendous blessings from the ‘living Avatar’. No one has been able to produce even a fragment of documentation for this ‘anointing’ from Indian scripture or any reliable historical sources. On the contrary, sexual interference has not place in Indian scripture, see Kushwant Singh’s opinion (brief video clip)

Here is what an authority on Hindu mysticism has to say about the matter:

Regarding this “kundalini raising” matter, there is NOTHING in the literature I’ve ever seen from the Hindu, Buddhist or Taoist tantric traditions or Hindu shaktipat guru traditions – and I have read widely and extensively in this literature – about “raising the kundalini” by sexually molesting male youth. It is a bald lie that Sri Ramakrishna initiated Narendranath (Swami Vivekananda) or anyone else in this manner. The accounts all state quite clearly that he would touch the disciples on the chest or head. He wasn’t taking
them off in private to massage or suck the penis or have male youth do the same to him. I have an extensive library of many rare Buddhist, Taoist and Hindu works (in addition to a huge collection of works from western mystical traditions) and I’ve NEVER read anything that would suggest that what SSathya Sai Baba is doing to male youth has been done by ANY other spiritual master in any tradition. Again, I wrote my M.A. thesis on the cross-cultural phenomenon of shaktipat or “energy empowerment” and I’ve never seen any document that alleged that the “kundalini” or vital force or subtle energy could or should be awakened in this manner.
The question exposing the faulty logic here is that, if the kundalini could be raised in this manner, why isn’t SSathya Sai Baba providing the same service for less attractive young men, or older men, or any females? Barry, please feel free to send this posting to anyone on your list who is either sympathetic or critical of SSathya Sai Baba. It’s time for the truth to be told about this matter of the kundalini and Sathya Sai Baba.
Best wishes to all, Dr. Timothy Conway. Santa Barbara, CA USA.
