Sathya Sai Baba Deceptions Exposed

Exposing major deceits by guru Sathya Sai Baba in India, incl. murders cover-up & widely alleged sexual abuse

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!

  1. Without western funding and support none of these Gurus will build their empires. They will just sit there somewhere and perish like the other spiritual seekers. I have no freaking idea why the west goes after these mute and senile dudes. They could be just plain crazy.

    Reply from Robert:
    Your first sentence is doubtless correct (though not so in the case of Sai Baba who attracted a huge following long before more than a handful of Westerners knew about him). That you hav no idea why they attract followers is correct. If you wish to know, then read the many aspects of this on my website at http://www.saibaba-x.org.uk/. You would have to consider me ‘plain crazy’ but this is far from the truth, nor about many I knew in the SB movement. Or read my book explaining how <i got involved ('Source of the Dream') then you can learn something about your country's spirituality, both for better and worse.
