The vacuous minds of deluded guru devotees

Posted by robertpriddy on September 26, 2017

There are millions of different followers of gurus, the vast majority of whom are purveying dogmas, baseless beliefs and speculative teachings. That is, when they are not also exercising autocratic power over their following and in many cases, engaging in sexual abuse of one or  both sexes and yet worse crimes.  India is a centre for all this kind of activity. Now one of the (previously) most well-known and respected of all Buddhist ‘teachers’ (read ‘gurus’) Sogyal Rinpoche, who is accredited and supported by the Dalai Lama has been exposed as a sexual abuser who has violently raged and assaulted his followers, as ”The Telegraph’ reports on a catalogue of damning accusations against him.

He has 100 centres in 40 countries around the world where he purveys his “crazy wisdom”. He is author of The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying – another version of these bogus Tibetan doctrines which has been falsely identified as being of Buddhist origin, while it is provenly not the case (see the ground-breaking and brilliant comprehensive study of the Tibet mythology by Donald S. Lopez (University of Michigan) ‘Prisoners of Shangri-La – Tibetan Buddhism and the West‘). He follows in the ‘crazy guru’ footsteps of Trungpa Rinpoche, another sexual abuser and alcoholic with a large and distinguished following, especially in the USA, who died of AIDS.

Yet one has to be sorry for those who are so without grounding, mature experience or knowledge of human nature and how the world works that they believe that prayers and/or mere chanting of a mantra is the ONLY solution to all problems, a zealous promoter – Sai Surya – of the false guru ‘oracle boy’ Sukshma Baba writes:-

 Such infantile trivia is pitiful. Does Sai Surya really think that people are going to sit for ONE LONG HOUR just chanting Loka Samastha? Even ardent devotees don’t have the time for that!

Miriam Shakti Devi profile

Posted by robertpriddy on September 17, 2017

A self-promoting ‘holier than thou’ Sai Baba supporter, Miriam Lakshmi , who evidently has major aims to be a worshipped herself, took the ‘spiritual’ pseudonym Miriam Shakti Devi) and ill-advisedly wrote a comment on an earlier page of mine here as follows:-Since those who write comments sometimes do not check to see if they were posted, I sent an e-mail to this young and evidently very naive lady, (see text lower down)

Her confident ignorance of my position and the lifelong discoveries behind it, she imagines I have only had/have materialistic ideals (which is an untrue slur. Not even a full supporter of ontological materialism). Unfortunately, from all the signs available on her self-promoting Instagram pages, this is another bogus religious healer with all the sweet but empty talk many of the signs of make-believe hodgepodge of false doctrine based on such misleading ideas as astrology, ‘medicinal yoga’ (yoga and medicine are almost entirely at odds about the causes of ill health). In short, this is but another totally unoriginal copyist who draws on the success of countless Hindu frauds and mystics, gurus and swamis, the majority known for sexual abuse, power hunger and unlimited greed for funds.  This is the marketplace of spirituality for the innocent, naive, and credulous people who have life problems they believe can be healed by religious means.

To miriamshaktidevi@gmail.com from Robert Priddy:-

“Ad your well-meaning (?) comment on my wordpress pages: I have sympathy with your position since I was once of very much the same attitude. That lasted for years until, after several years following a Swami Ambikananda in London, and eventually 18 years running the Sai Organisation in Norway and knowing thousands of devotees of Sathya Sai Baba, and those of other gurus.

I did almost nothing but seva for about 18 years and came to know the ashram people in and out . and must of the world organisation leaders. I had over 10 hours of interviews with Sai Baba over 18 years and hundreds of darsan contacts. Eventually I came to learn what I had never wanted to know about it all… and I am a very exacting and honest investigator, now having been contacted as trusted by over a thousand ex-devotees of Sai Baba with their accounts of all kind of fraud, abuse, crime and cover-up. It took me a decade to absorb and draw the unavoidable conclusion from it all.

You have shown that you do not know anything about me or what I stand for and why. I have posted you comment (on my website at http://www.saibaba-x.org.uk/) with a response for the public to read. I shall add postings that will soon appear under you name on Google.

However, if and when you come on better ideas and realise the emptiness of the quest you are so devoted to in mere belief and repent for the error of your ways, you may contact me again and, if your attitude proves acceptable – I shall remove the postings that will now appear under you name on Google. I have some compassion even for people like yourself.”
