India’s continuing parlous state

Posted by robertpriddy on December 27, 2016

As 2017 approaches, the future of India seems no brighter, alas for the millions of decent hard-working and neglected millions. Believers in Hindu swamis and other gurus – even by all India’s Prime Ministers and Presidents –  often think that India’s economic surge, which increases living standards for the still small but growing middle class, is due to rituals like pujas, yagnas, temple visits and related observances, but far less to selfless social service (which all their gurus preach but the fewest actually practice). Yet acceptable standards of social care, health care and other basic public services common in developed countries, are non-existent for hundreds of millions of Indians. Medicine based on hi-technological improvements are available to those Indians with money, but is otherwise mostly of a very low level.

According to international organisations, the country has somewhere in the region of 12 million child labourers. “India is sadly the home to the largest number of child labourers in the world. The census found an increase in the number of child labourers from 11.28 million in 1991 to 12.59 million in 2001. Unlike any other country, India was attributed 23 goods the majority of which is produced by child labour in the manufacturing sector.” (See here) At least 1% of children work in highly hazardous production.”

There are countless beggars, sick people and heavily handicapped persons in absolute penury to be seen living on the streets and camping out on pavements in most cities and many lepers (treated as ‘untouchables’ and isolated in primitive colonies). Corruption of all kinds – including widespread bribery – has for decades been so endemic at all levels of society that most people there have lost all belief that it can ever be stamped out and accept it as part of the culture. Added to all these well-known weaknesses is a huge educational gap, plus a media information gap due to excessive top-down control of information and employees. The Indian habit of ‘mental double-accounting’ whereby there the accepted truth is publicised but the real truth is kept secret is part of the make-up of almost all politicians and public figures. This was described in the searingly frank and extremely well-informed writings of the polymath and language genius Nirad C. Chaudhuri, who is reviled by those who hate that he gave away the inside story of India in the last century.

The former “God Incarnate” in Puttaparthi (now dead and buried!) made huge efforts to control what his devotees could learn or discover about the real world (especially about himself)… so he advised praying, rock steady faith in himself, mantric chants and repetitive religious songs, even advising to ‘stop all thought’ (the mind should die to liberate the person from delusion!). This fanciful spiritual rubbish only serve to hinder the growth of knowledge and awareness needed to combat India’s problems.

Phyllis Krystal died early December aged 102

Posted by robertpriddy on December 16, 2016

Phyllis Krystal was one of Sathya Sai Baba’s earliest Western promoters through her hagiographic book ‘The Ultimate Experience’. The title itself is enough to show that this Americanised British woman was an exaggeration expert of some stature. I knew her somewhat from meeting her in an interview and through e-mails. She was a speaker at a Sathya Sai Europe Conference in Hamburg, 1992, and my wife also met her and found her unpleasantly supercilious. She made a name for herself with a New Age type book called ‘Cutting the Ties that Bind’, based on  Sai Baba’s unprofessional and misleading psychological ‘teachings’, showing herself to be the amateur psychologist she was. Her husband was a millionaire (who was invited by Sai Baba to interviews with her). He died some decades ago and she was very rich, travelled the world first class and lived at the best hotels when visiting Sai conferences. Nonetheless, she took it upon herself to promote Sai Baba’s programme called ‘Ceiling on Desires’ which urged everyone to use the minimum of resources for oneself or own’s own desires and comforts.

Sai Baba teachings childsplay, claims Phyllis Krystal (this most uncritical propagator of Sathya Sai Baba’s “teachings” claimed that they are so clear that a child can understand them and follow them. They are superficial when they are simple… known to most devotees only in the form of aphorisms, a few sayings and statements which are highly generalised and their vagueness can be therefore interpreted in many ways. If they were clear and straightforward, who would take them seriously in an adult world!

Madhusudan (‘oracle boy’) formally ADMITS he is a fake

Posted by robertpriddy on December 14, 2016

The Muddenahalli ‘oracle boy’ who has been posing as hosting the ‘subtle body’ of Sathya Sai Baba stated to Nigerian police in Lagos that he is no ‘light body’ and does NOT receive messages. In short, the entire Muddenahalli project based on this impostor and all its current works to obtain donations and a world-wide following for this is a massive scam!  This is confirmed by the Lagos police report which is based on voluntary statements of admission of the key figures involved, who were Dewreddy Madhusudan Rao Naidu, Sri Narasimha Murthy, Isaac Burton Tigrett and 5 others with them in Nigeria. The document below was posted recently (probably at considerable risk to himself) by Ravi S. Iyer, who writes on his Facebook page that he “was forwarded the content of a recent email by Shri Ramesh Hathiramani, Chair, Zone 9A (Africa), Sathya Sai International Organization (SSIO) which had the two images attached to this post, of Nigerian police report dated Nov. 23rd 2016 on interrogation of Muddenahalli group in July 2016.”

‘Case of Conspiracy, Impersonation, Corrupt Enrichment and Fraud’

 Further to the above, note the following separate incident involving ‘Sri’ Narasimha Murthy Narasimha Murthy flees from legal punishment as well as his role as originator of the Muddenahalli scam Souljourns: Narasimha Murthy’s secret of Prema Sai and Narasimha Murthy’s imprudent interview & consequences This same person, B.N Narasimhamurthy, was once the Warden of Sri Sathya Sai Student’s Hostel. He was accused by students at the Brindavan Ccollege campus not only to have been a provider of young boys and youngish men for Sai Baba to abuse sexually, but was himself a sexual abuser.

Contractors Not Being Paid by the Muddenahalli ‘Trust’?

Posted by robertpriddy on December 12, 2016


Hari Shankar: Contractors not being paid reminded me of a mail we received at SSS Central Trust from a contractor for Raipur Hospital. He wrote to us asking for a large sum as balance payment that had been outstanding for an unreasonably long time. I called him and tried to make him understand that this was a different Trust, adding that SSS Central Trust would never hold up a supplier’s payment so unfairly. I asked him if he had contacted the Raipur people and he said that every time he raised the subject he was told to treat the balance as donation!! He told me that if he had known earlier that this was not Swami’s Trust but someone riding on His Name, he would never have accepted to work for them.

This fits with the whole mentality of the Muddenahalli people as known from numerous cases in the press.

Spiritual gurus laundering secret money

Posted by robertpriddy on December 11, 2016

Exposed: How spiritual leaders are laundering secretive money during demonetisation

Did the demonetization of Indian high currency notes curb corruption? No, it is more like a windfall of extra cash for so many ambitious people! They can take 100% of cash, give the people 60% back in new notes, pay the bank clerks a cut and keep the profit for their organisations.

India Today’s special investigation team found several holy men and women rampantly black-marketing illicit wealth for hefty commissions.  (article by Syed Masroor Hasan Md Hizbullah Kumar Ashish I l I Posted by Nivedita Dash. December 2, 2016

The November 8 ban on high-denomination Indian currency made this black-marketeering possible . Several spiritual leaders and priests of popular centres of faith are guilty of this sordid malpractice.  Radha Mata , the ‘revered’ head of the Vaishno temple in Ghaziabad near Delhi used hawala operators  when the undercover India Today reporters approached her to swap fictitious unaccounted money. She offered to exchange outlawed notes from banks at half their original value of Rs 25 crore. She claimed that the clients could get dollars wherever they chose, such as Dubai, Canada or England, (but the bank would take 50% in commission). India Today dredged up the other – sacred shrines short-changing
invalid currency, such as in the ancient temple town of Mathura.

Seema Dee – another example of SB supporter who writes abuse

Posted by robertpriddy on December 7, 2016

Seema Dee - on-line abuser of Sai Baba exposers

Seema Dee from London, Ontario

 This website and many another exposer or website critical of Sathya Sai Baba have been under a constant barrage of on-line  abuse of every kind, some very extreme. The mentality of these countless maligners who pretend to be devotees is nearly always revealed in their postings as being quite primitive and definitely NOT spiritual by any fair measure. Sai Baba preached: ‘Slander is a direct sin’ (Sathya Sai Speaks Vol 15 p. 110) (and consequently one should NEVER abuse people with filthy language); ‘Speak softly, sweetly & truthfully ‘ (Sathya Sai Speaks Vol 26 p. 142) and ‘Do not ridicule or criticise anyone (Sanathana Sarathi 5-1999 p. 125). ‘One should never criticize others, only oneself” (Sathya Sai Speaks Vol 4 p. 316). (Note: I do not agree that these ‘teachings’ are valid, effectively practicable or morally right.

Sai Baba’s words were in most instances quite the opposite to what he himself did… by very cleverly organised appearances – a huge set of deceits and fraudulent claims (plus major crimes for which he remained unpunished due to support from the highest authorities in India who worshipped or endorsed him). Perhaps they expect to affect us who have learned – often at our great cost – but they did not count their names and sins coming up on the first page of Google searches.These attackers have received their comeuppance through postings our searing refutations (see index of names and links here).

For once I am posting an example (the most recent) of a supporter of Sathya Sai Baba’s ‘teachings’ who writes dirty abuse in a comment on this website. She even had the audacity to write on her Facebook Page as follows:-

Seema Dee's hypocrisy

Airline ticket issued to Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba on Nov. 25, 2016

Posted by robertpriddy on December 5, 2016

Indian Jet Airways issued an airline ticket in the name of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba to the subtle form.

Does this signify that oracle boy doesn’t have Sai Baba subtly inside himself, but that he has rather decided to take over the full identity of the dead avatar? Of course, he still looks exactly like the ex-student who was a Sai Baba bedfellow. Could it possibly be that this Muddenahalli business, despite its financial successes and excessive claims, is merely a deceit, fraud, a scam? (offstage: ‘subtle’ laughter from hundreds of the remaining Prashanthi devotees of Sathya SB).

Narasimha Murthy flees from legal punishment

Posted by robertpriddy on December 2, 2016





“Mr Narasimha Murthy has resigned from SSS Loka Seva trust. This is confirmed by Respondents in the appeal proceedings at Chikkaballapura District Court in the appeal filed by Central Trust.
Sai Ram SS Naganand” (Senior Advocate and Trustee for Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust of Puttaparthi  (source)

Terry Reis Kennedy also comments on this news, saying that“the fact that one of the new trustees in SSSLST is MADHU SUDAN NAIDU implies that NOTHING WILL CHANGE.

He also holds that “the Loka Seva Trust, including its leaders, Gangadhara Bhat and Narayan Rao most probably will remain very much under the influence/control of Muddenahalli Fraud Squad: namely, Madhusudhan Naidu, Narasimhamurthy, C. Srinivas and Isaac Tigrett” and that this “only gets Murthy off the hook, for he now refers to himself as Muddenahalli gang’s “Mentor”.

Satish Naik had written that donors to Muddenahalli need to stop their contributions. “But such donors, obviously, would not follow such a suggestion if they are convinced that MDH ORACLE BOY IS ACTUALLY THE MOUTHPIECE OF SAI BABA OF PUTTAPARTHI.”
