Nithyananda banished from Varanasi – women protest

Posted by robertpriddy on May 30, 2015

Promising enlightenment by the masses!
It’s now Gulabi Gang’s turn to protest against Nithyananda
India Monday, May 18, 2015 – 19:43 
Several groups took to the streets of Varanasi on Monday to protest against a program conducted by Nithyananda, the self-styled godman accused of rape. Nithyananda is currently conducting a 21-day program called “Inner Awakening” the city.
The groups are demanding that he should not be allowed to conduct satsangs and other programs in the holy city. Among the groups that are protesting are Gulabi Gang (women’s activists who fight against injustice and atrocities against women), All India Student Association (AISA), students of Benaras Hindu University and Kashi Vidhyapeet, Progressive Writers Association, Lok Chetana organization and Nirmal India Party.
Various forms of protest could be seen in the city ranging from signature campaigns appealing to the Chief Minister and local authorities to stop Nithyananda’s programs in Varanasi to a Satyagraha march. Angry women protestors were also found attacking Nithyanada’s hoardings and flex posters with chappals and sticks.
The Sub-Divisional Magistrate Tribuvan Vishwakarma has assured the protestors that Nithyanada will be ordered to leave Varanasi within four days.

Asaram Bapu responsible for all attacks against witnesses

Posted by robertpriddy on May 28, 2015

JODHPUR: 74-year-old self-styled godman Asaram Bapu was quizzed about an attack on an important witness in the sexual assault case against him. Responding immediately to it, the spiritual leader said, “Duniya mein sabhi hamle main hi karwata hoon (I am responsible for all the attacks that are happening)”. Asaram made the statement to the media while he was being taken for the hearing in a Jodhpur Court on Wednesday.

A key witness, Mahendra Chawla who served Asaram for four years as a Personal Assistant was attacked by some unidentified gunmen at Sanauli Village in Panipat on Wednesday. Critically injured Chawla suffering the bullet wounds on his shoulder was rushed to the hospital following the attack. Chawla who is the fifth witness to be attacked in the case had earlier exposed Asaram before the court on his character and illegal activities in his ashram on March 3. Akhil Gupta, the cook and aide of Asaram was killed in January this year while he was on his way home from work in Uttar Pradesh. Asaram’s physician Amrut Prajapati was shot dead in Gujarat last year. Apart from these, three others have survived attacks on them for speaking up against the spiritual guru who is currently behind the bars. http://www.newsx.com/national/3381-a-look-on-the-controversial-videos-of-spiritual-guru-asaram-bapu-he-took-responsibility-of-all-the-attacks-against-witnesses

It is apparently thought by some deluded followers that  he said this in sarcasm. If that was his intention, then one can but think, ‘many a true word is said in jest’. Considering the criminal antics he has displayed over they years, it is only reasonable to assume that he was behind the attacks in one way and another.

Sri Madhu Sudan – translating communicator of Sai Baba’s discourses

Posted by robertpriddy on May 22, 2015

Connie Shaw’s lengthy e-mail finally reaches the reason for everyone to go to Croatia, as she puts it: “At Last – Swami and Sri Madhusudhan Naidu”
She continues by asking herself what her Sai friends would want to know about this Madhu Sudan who is held in deep reverence as Swami’ true mouthpiece. She lists a series of questions she puts to herself about whether one can trust him etc., and then answers them.

Shaw considers Madhu Sudan ” …a person of integrity who was playing the current role of the “communicator/translator” (not medium, not channel, not guru) for the Invisible Subtle Form of Sathya Sai”. This is empty wordplay to mislead, for either there is a disembodied ‘subtle entity’ at the other end or there is not, and to endeavour to convey anything from it is to act as a medium, a channel. She asks: “Would he do the same outstanding job of translation of Baba’s discourses that we have enjoyed over the years via such elevating and electrifying translators… bla, bla”

One big question Shaw avoided like the plague is why anyone would want to hear any more of Sai Baba’s countless utterly repetitive discourses. Are not his own writings and the endless volumes of Sathya Sai Speaks and Sanathana Sarathi sufficient? What more could Madhu Sudan add that was not his own invention and would be worth travelling across half the globe to hear? Since I have studied every writings and discourse up until 2003 (indexing them in 18,000 entries) and many after that, I can assure everyone that everything that Sai Baba expressed could be redacted down to 10% of the whole without losing anything of import. (But it would admittedly be a problem to include in that all the hundreds of documented contradictions, howling absurdities, and his pseudo-scientific ideas about almost every phenomenon, from physics to geology, medicine and not least the history of Christianity).

“The communicator would faithfully translate the message, without additions or deletions,especially regarding the content of the Avatar’s message and mission.” How on earth could anyone know whether this was so, considering that no one could hear the voiceless ghost of Swami or even know in what language he was translating from? (The language of the heart, they would say. But that should presumably need no translation anyhow, being allegedly unmistakable direct, pure and true)”

Shaw was concentrated far less on what he said (she does not reproduce more than a few words of his) but how he said it, his gestures, pauses, the satvic quality of voice, demeanour, clarity of expression as if she could, determine whether he is, as she puts it the “genuine article,” the “real deal,” the “authentic diamond” and not a clever facsimile.” She wondered whether he would “grand-stand,” “show-boat” (grab attention to himself over Swami) or display any hubris”. She concluded that he was “not dull in vibration” was “so devoid of “stage personality” while translating as to be almost a slide transparency through which the Avatar can clearly work”. “Several times this writer saw Sathya Sai in His chair, intermittently, and was thrilled. The vibration of Baba was unmistakable, and yet it contained, for this writer, a new resolve, intent and nuances that we had not experienced in the past”. 

“In brief, ‘intermittently thrilled’ by her ‘inner vision’ (unless she is dishonestly claiming she actually saw him) ,Shaw threw everything she had and more at it… to convince that this was Swami Himself communicating through his former student and medal-winning ‘form boy’ (i.e. intimate partner). One can but reflect that, since the demand for speakers by Sai Baba audiences has fallen off a cliff since he died, Connie Shaw has written her circular mail as a ploy for yet again getting invited to do what she considers her selfless service, holding talks about Swami, his ‘teaching’  and not least herself.  (She had added at the end of her mail, including: “Ms. Shaw has given over 2,000 talks on the Love, Power and Divinity of the Avatar both in person and in 130 venues on Skype, on five continents.”)

“Later that day I heard a new friend, Petar, say, “There’s no way that guy could have faked that Divine Discourse!” We agreed.)” There are many who can fake such things, especially one who has seen Sai Baba daily for years on end, both in public and in the privacy of his apartments. Impersonation is an art that can be perfected to the highest degree and, as with Madhu Sudan, requires that the entire personality of the impersonator is subsumed by the subject portrayed. A self-eliminating nonentity can certainly convincingly appear to ‘communicate’ a no-longer-existent entity.

Shaw included in her mail the question to herself: “Since you have been blessed with the seva of taking 48 groups of sick people to India; have been blessed with many interviews; and Swami has appeared in your house 57 times; and hundreds of times during your thousands of talks in dozens of countries…” There we see how keen she is to promote herself as a selfless server, the kind of self-promotion she abhors in others, as when she writes how to tell if Madhu is genuine: “He would be humble and would not “grand-stand,” “show-boat” (grab attention to himself over Swami) or display any hubris.” Actually, however, to escort groups to Sai Baba always involved having along sick people, for those were the keenest to get healing from him. It was no big selfless deal, many of us did it, including my wife and I.  

To continue believing in Sai Baba one has to live in constant denial of the negatives and keep chasing after intangible unknowns, as ungraspable as as the heart of bliss and eternal liberation (liberation to what? Indeed, no one knows, only hopes and half-imagines). It requires the distorting transformation in thought and word of everything that does not fit the mirage, turning it into some kind of justification based on faith that Sathya Sai Baba was not a pedophile, did not oder murders, use massive bribes (taken out of trustingly donated funds).  One must, as he said, have faith, nothing more required… faith that he lead a spotless life of utter purity and love, despite the massed evidence and testimony to show that this was not the case. Otherwise faces the certain loss of all those one believed to be one’s ‘brothers and sisters’ and friends in God, all one has invested emotionally, socially, financially so as to find a new life That is the price exacted relentlessly by the remaining true believers (and the cynical huge profiteers of the movement) on all who falter, doubt and learn how they are all self-interested in maintaining a massive delusion. 

The entire ‘new chapter’ of Muddenahalli – now at war with Prashanthi and the Sai Baba legacy there – of Madhu Sudan and the ‘world tour’ is yet another an exercise in amassing riches ostensibly for social and educational service projects, amounts unimaginable to most trusting followers from which fortunes can be diverted and embezzled on the model now so prevalent in India with its countless ‘godmen’ and ‘Divine Mothers’ etc., a spiritual marketplace model which owes much to the Sathya Sai Baba cult. The religious hysteria of Pollyanna positivity, fine words was largely a facade for recruiting people, behind which was strictly secret and massive underside of corruption, fraud, bribery, untruth, sexual abuses, murders, public propaganda and clever cynical manipulation of trusting people.

Such guru cults as that which accumulated through decades around Sai Baba create cognitive-emotional delusions in persons through long indoctrination and the clandestine organisation of appearances. This relies on the mind’s facility to build castles in the air through life, inventing insubstantial and mystical worlds within worlds and anything it dreams or conjectures until it departs from the promptings of reality and retreats gradually further into confused narcissistic echo chambers! Aspirants come to eschew and even hate the actual world in the interest of impossible ideals they impose on it and hold up for their own salvation in what is, at best, an uncertain fate after death. 

UPDATE as of june 2015! PREMA SAI IS FOUND IN DODDAMALUR, SOUTH INDIA – A 4-YEAR OLD BOY. This will upset Narasimha Murthy’s applecart unless he and his cronies can somehow readjust their narrative to include and embrace this discovery. Of course, it is all hoo-ha, typical Hindu guru delusion and manufactured divinity.

Connie Shaw on the ‘Avatar’s Mission’

Posted by robertpriddy on May 21, 2015

The Muddenahalli upstart ‘Sai Baba impersonator, ‘Sri’ Madhusudhan Naidu’s world tour has been to Tokyo and now also to Croatia (proudly reported to have been held at “Hypo Conference Centre multi-story convention hall) in Zagreb” – presumably proving the importance of this meeting). We received a mail by an elderly Sai Baba follower,  Connie Shaw:-

———- Forwarded message ———-
From: ‘VijayaSai B.S.’ urmindmatters@gmail.com 
Date: 16 May 2015 at 11:03
THE GLORY OF GOD IN CROATIA A NEW CHAPTER IN THE AVATAR’S MISSION

I cull some of the paiste pearls cast to us swine in the very long and hysterically gushing e-mail… some of its cloying hype, denial and raging gullibility. Connie Shaw certainly exercised her inconceivable self-delusion. Having seen all this many times over during 18 years involvement in the Sai Organisation and learned from hard experience what motivates it, I also outline some real causes behind it.

Here is a taste of it: “Like ravenous honey bees, constantly-arriving devotees were preparing their “landing-approaches” to return to the nectarous Heart of the Avatar, Invisible or not!”
But why then had they all left it in the first place, one wonders? Sai Baba was ever reminding that he was not in any one place, but was omnipresent, so if one (was fool enough to have) believed him, then why go to Croatia, of all places, for this? Loneliness, longing for Sai brother and sisterhood again, and even the hope of getting somewhere or other along the ‘trudging road of never-ending setbacks’ towards spiritual mirages?

Connie Shaw informs:  “the Croatian audience was comprised of Western adults, primarily from Europe. They have been tried in the fires of war, financial deprivation, hunger, unemployment and climate changes. They have been chastened and softened, prepared for New Work.” Was the Croatian audience Croatian or Western Europeans? It is highly unlikely that many other of the diminishing groups of European devotees would have gone to such an event.

“Of the thousand people in attendance, there were perhaps 950 women and about fifty men and boys, including a handful of children!” An utterly overwhelming percentage of women, which gender is always most susceptible to male-dominated guru cults. 

“Sri Ravi Kasturi, Sai’s enormously talented Team Organizer and Envoy, who has the energy of triplets and the charm of Krishna” So Krishna was equalled in charm by   this factotum? But how could Connie Shaw judge that (unless she had been a gopi with Krishna in that mythology). Is it just over-heated wishful imagination? Miss Shaw’s enthusiasm for this organiser knew no bounds, embarrassingly praising as some magical Envoy with “the energy of triplets” a combination of a fast-moving sprite, a circus ring-leader, a Master of Ceremonies, a Field Marshall, and the ultimate Body Guard” (who also directed the security guard!).

Miss Shaw lavished absurd epithets on other men prominently involved, for example “slender, fluid Dr. Srinivas, the very appealing and accomplished physician, ambassador-for-Sai… self-effacing, somewhat shy demeanor” and also ” White-haired Sri Narasimha Murthy, the warden of the Sri Sathya Sai School at Muddenahalli, much- maligned (unfairly and unfortunately), due to his formidable task and position in the Next Chapter of Sai’s Mission)… who is tall, strongly-built and imposing, looked resplendent in his long stylish kurta and matching pants. She melted when she observed his tender, motherly interactions with toddlers..”
Miss Shaw avoids reporting, of course that this same Narasimha Murthy (who I met at Muddenahalli in 1998, and his pants did match his kurta even then) was accused by students of being a procurer of boys for Sai Baba’s pleasure, and an abuser himself.

Connie Shaw is already well qualified as a totally uncritical and credulous believer and proselytizer – having, for example, swallowed the impossible when she got Sai Baba to answer a question with ‘no joking’.  He assured here definitively that after 2007 there would be no war, only peace! (http://www.saibaba-x.org.uk/7/Sathya_Sai_Baba_Soothsayer.html). How can she rationalise that? Well, not reasonably, but by sheer denial and clinging to her blind faith and all it means to her and the other unfortunates who have had to see their guru-god die (of terrible symptoms which match death from AIDS)long before he predicted. One understands her inability to liberate herself from the worship of such a compromised guru who has done many terrible things when she proclaims: ““He is my life and I live to love and to obey Him. He is the Only Doer”

Since the ignominious death of Sai Baba there have been almost no jolly get-togethers in India and very few elsewhere of any size or note. The uncertain number of Western visitors among the 1000 or so Croatians at the pseudo-darsan were no doubt gasping for ‘spiritual company’ and the old games of blessed VIP and lesser egos chafing against one another that they have missed so desperately while nothing was happening. So again they evidently spend lots of money on air fares and all the rest… demonstrating the futility among followers of Swami’s best teaching of ‘ceiling on desires’.  Just as bad, they haven’t taken anything he said about having no mediums as these are impostors.

But those who seek the like-minded society of Muddenahalli illusionists recreate something of the pleasure of being part of an active movement again and no longer feel like tragic doubt-ridden outsiders of a dying cult. One such lonely left-behind was Isaac Tigrett who has been scorned by all right-thinking ‘officially endorsed’ Sai Baba minions and no longer welcome at Prashanthi. A famous donor and intimate of Sai Baba, it seems he presided  over the Croatian assembly as some kind of grey eminence. They had probably not seen him on BBC’s ‘The Secret Swami’  (see here) where he said he believed Sai Baba probably was a sexual abuser, and that it would make no difference to him if Sai Baba were to murder anyone! Perhaps he is keen to find donors for his non-starting New Age Coorg project (planned together with the ‘omnipotent’ dying Sai Baba himself), meanwhile scanning the 900 or so ladies present with mystic 7’th ray eyes…
Perhaps the reader will feel I am being unjust to the man of many female friends? Well, just get this excerpt from Connie Shaw’s mail (take care not to fall out of your chair laughing):-

“During the morning session, I saw, to my surprise and delight, Isaac Tigrett’s subtle body get up from his chair to the left of the stage, facing the audience, and move through the rows of women Vedic chanters while his physical body was still sitting in the chair! Like a kindly grand-father, he lovingly bent over and blessed/tapped  the top of each woman’s head, in appreciation for their chanting and their high vibrations. Another woman said that she had seen Baba leave His chair and bless/pat every one of the 1,000 attendees on the head! Indeed, it felt to this writer as if He had planted a vibrant blue-white Seed of Renewed-Purpose-and-Resolve in each of us.”

Miss Shaw was definitely ‘seeing things’ as a result of desperation to rediscover some purpose. The cult revolved much around people given to visions and waking dreams, with Tigrett as one of the worst.

“…(God, Creator of the Cosmos) Sri Sathya Sai Baba, also known to His 23 million devotees of all faiths as “Swami,” Master.” How did she figure the descent to 23 million when it used to be anything from 30 million to 60, to 600 million, according to a range of  officially released numbers? It is most likely that the number of true believers is now minimal and whoever could be considered genuine followers as less than a few million even including India, where Sai Baba is hardly ever even mentioned in the national news.

This is but the preliminary foreplay to the great ethereal coming-together which is heralded according to this e-mail, to be continued in the next blog…

COMMENT BY Siobhan Daniels

Just  to  let  you  know,  that  Isaac Tigrett is  still  allowed  to  stay  at  the  Ashram,  plus  his  Car  is  Parked  out side  his Building,  With  the  Sign  of  Illuminati on  it!!!,  Yet no  one  questions  this  which  I  find  so  weird!! Also are u aware there are signs in the Ashram saying any one going to muudenali will not be allowed in the Ashram’ Yet Isaak is allowed stay there!! Doesn’t make sense!!!?

REPLY (from Robert): Thanks for the information. I suppose that Ratnakar and Co. are scared to kick him out as there are quite s lot of rich Americans who may stop supporting them (if they still do, who knows?) or others who would feel this would force them to choose – Muddenahalli or Prashanthi but not both.

COMMENT
Chrisdokter said — May 23, 2015 at 1:40 pm e
“Miss Shaw is on a mission again. Judging by her past behaviour, she herself fits neatly in the inner circle of would-be female Western devotees slash mediums of the late guru, a la Phyllis Krystal, who are not only preying on the vulnerable by spreading this new gospel of this Madhu Sudan chap, but earning a pretty penny from her own ‘seva’ too, to the tune of 150 dollars for a ‘personal’ Skype ‘reading’, see her personal website. All love, my foot! A con woman, plain and simple, conning herself and others, trapped in cultish brainwash to her dying day.”

Self-proclaimed Avatar’s claims defeated by events

Posted by robertpriddy on May 15, 2015

Events have shown that Sathya Sai Baba ended up as the opposite of virtually everything he claimed to be and almost everything he promised he would make happen failed to occur. A reminder of the unprecedented excesses of his boasts is in place again. The facts which contradict all this are now very widely known and the documentation is overwhelming. Anyone who considers that the claims have been fulfilled – or ever will be fulfilled – is suffering from an ingrained cognitive-emotional delusion.

“Very soon, the entire world will be united. In fact, after 28 years, the world itself will become “Bharat”. Everyone will call themself a Bharatiya (one imbued with godliness — Bhagavat rathas). No one will refer to themself as belonging to this state or that state, this region or that region.” (Divine Discourse, Nov 23, 1978)

In 1971, U.S. journo Arnold Schulman investigates Sai Baba claims

Posted by robertpriddy on May 11, 2015

The cobra under the child Baba’s blanket story is debunked by Sai’s two sisters, Venkamma and Parvatamma and Schulman found that, for every claim or story about Sai Baba, there are conflicting versions. This should be sufficient to cast utmost doubt on most of Sathya Sai Baba’s alleged ‘Divine childhood’.

Sai Baba kingdom not come, but gone

Posted by robertpriddy on May 7, 2015

The Deccan Chronicle reports: ‘Karnataka ashram rivals Puttaparthi‘ stating: “A parallel trust and ashram in Karnataka is befuddling Satya Sai devotees. Former members of the Satya Sai Central Trust of Puttaparthi and a group of staunch devotees of the late Satya Sai Baba are reportedly supporting the new ashram at Muddenahalli in Karnataka.
A 23-year-old MBA graduate from the Satya Sai Baba campus has claimed to be a manifestation of the godman. He is reportedly receiving letters like the late Satya Sai Baba did, from devotees who are thronging the new ashram for special pujas on Thursdays and Sundays. He gives interviews to important devotees.
With the MBA graduate claiming to be a manifestation of the Satya Sai Baba, several traditions have been copied from Prasanthi Nilayam.
Sources said, many devotees going to the ashram from Puttaparthi on Sundays and Thursdays. “At least 300 taxis are running to Muddenahalli after darshan of the Mahasamadhi.
The new ashram resembles Prasanthi Nilayam and was built at Rs 30 crore. Work on a Rs 12-crore bhajan mandir is under progress.

A most hilarious declaration of faith is posted on the Internet under the oxymoronic title “I believe with absolute certainty’ By Narender Thangavelu, He attrubutes this faith to a highly speculative book ‘Sai Thy Kingdom Come’ of which he says ” (it) has not restored my faith. Instead, it produced a faith where there was void and triggered a new perspective. Moreover, it gave a new meaning and dimension to the dreams that I have been having all along.”  (http://www.saikingdom.come).

Dreams are notoriously unreliable and nothing we experiece is further from providing certainty about anything. They are created by the subconscious mind, a brain-generated confusion drawn from the vast personal resources of subliminal and conscious memory, stimulated by the waking person’s most central desires and hopes, anxieties and fears. How do I know this? Well, I had over 300 unusual dreams about Sai Baba when I was concentrated on his life and teaching.I even entitled my original pro-Sai book, which he also blessed’ as ‘Source of the Dream – my way to Sathya Sai Baba’. I wrote down every dream immediately on awakening, as I had done for 30 years previous to my first dream of him. When studying psychology in th 1960s, I had been a a Freudian, then a Jungian and later held numerous other major interests, and in each case my dreams produced scenarios which were full of the symbolisms of each ‘theory’.  Since my total disillusionment with him, I realised finally how the brain plays with itself to create dreams which reflect one’s deepest concerns at any time. So dreams are the on-going result of what is central to a person’s aims and struggles and wish fulfilments.

On such an unreliable foundation, the entire phenomenon of Muddenahalli is conjectures, as also was most of what Sathya Sai Baba himself also ‘taught’.

Asaram Bapu case: CBI inquiry called for and Narayen Sai bail modified

Posted by robertpriddy on May 3, 2015

In connection with the Asaram Bapu case, Akhil Gupta, a witness in a rape case against controversial self-styled godman Asaram Bapu, was shot dead on January 11,2015.  BJP leader Subramanian Swami has decided to fight for rape accused Asaram Bapu. Reportedly, Swamy met Bapu in Jodhpur Central Jail and assured godman that he would fight his case. However, OneIndia.com reports that BJP members have reacted against this:
“Muzaffarnagar, Apr 28: BJP activists here staged a demonstration demanding CBI inquiry into the murder of a witness in a rape case against Asaram Bapu. Hundreds of BJP workers led by vice-president of party unit here, Sarita Gore, took out a procession yesterday and submitted a memorandum to the city Magistrate demanding CBI inquiry into the case. …They alleged that the local police have not arrested anyone in this connection yet. Akhil Gupta, a witness in a rape case against controversial self-styled godman Asaram Bapu, was shot dead on January 11 this year.” Read more at: http://www.oneindia.com/india/bjp-demands-cbi-inquiry-into-murder-witness-asaram-case-1730710.html

The order of the High Court granting bail for 3 weeks to Asaram’s son, accused rapist Narayan Sai, to attend his mothers before a serious spinal operation has been modified by the Supreme Court to apply only when the doctors fix the date of the operation.
OneIndia.com gives details:
“What are your apprehensions?,” the bench asked. Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the state, said the followers of the accused who are “misinformed” may create problems for the police at the time of his surrender. “The huge following is not a reason to deny bail to him,” the bench said. “One vital witness (of the case) has been eliminated. Three witnesses have been injured,” the ASG said, adding that a woman IPS officer, probing the case, has been threatened. Referring to bail conditions imposed by the High Court, the bench said, “he is literally under house arrest. The policemen will be around him all throughout.” It further said that the accused will be released one week before the doctor fixes the date of operation of his mother and he will have to surrender if the surgery gets postponed. ‘Stupid women treat Sai like Lord Krishna’ During the hearing, Gujarat government argued that “stupid women treat him like Lord Krishna” and this could lead to a problem in getting him back into jail, an NDTV report said. “Sai is a popular person and stupid women treat him like Lord Krishna and used to dance with him like Gopikas (girl devotees of Krishna),” the government said.  Read more at: http://www.oneindia.com/india/sc-modifies-hc-order-granting-bail-to-narayan-sai-in-rape-case-1731941.html
