Just for your continued amusement (if not bemusement):- It doesn’t look like the worshippers of the ‘subtle body’ of Sathya Sai Baba can even figure out what or who they are talking about, with their pleas to ‘help swami’. If they believe he is the all-powerful god, what does that even mean? Don’t leave him to deal with the world all on his poor, lonesome, solitary self? Seems like they are desperate to gather names to show how popular he is, when indeed he is NOT. The added problem (like a vaudeville act) is who this ‘swami’ is… Sathya Sai Baba seems far too easily confused with his ex-student Madhu Sudan (i.e. the impostor or ‘oracle boy’).

A frank and freewheeling new account of some of my many experiences during 18 years of service for and visits to Sathya Sai Baba. I reveal further how I came there and how – very gradually – I discovered untoward covered-up matters, not least through Sai Baba’s very close associate, Against all his trust and hope, it turned out that Baba ran a most successfully secretive and controlling cult. He was finally revealed to be a major deceiver and a criminal, though unpunished because always protected to the highest governmental and judicial level in India.

by Sai Surya,
Sai Surya circulated his report on the Muddenahalli Maha Shivarathri lingam production scam by Madhu Sudan (aka ‘Sukshma Baba’ claimed to be the host to the disembodied Sathya Sai Baba’s ghost). He claimed “We witnessed the impossible.” and writes reams of Sai Baba nonsense, seeming to wish to be a guru himself. (eg. “Swami is beyond all experiences. He has no limitation and can do anything, anytime, anywhere. We should become instruments of Swami. We should also note that beings from all over the universe including the gods were there to witness the birth of the lingam and to be part of the excitement that followed. More invisibles came later to be in this special vibration of the One beyond all and all in action. There was excitement all over the universe. We are able to be here now as the results of many lifetimes.“)
Sai Surya is like the children of whom he wrote: “Children understand his being because they connect
to Swami with hearts of pure love.” But at a tender age, children can be induced to believe anything they are told.
Among some of the other utter naive ideas he also forwarded. such as “Because you cannot see God does not mean that He is not there. Like clouds covering the sun” – “There were many invisibles entities here absorbing the Love which will be spread where it is needed. The effect of the bhajans singing will go far beyond these walls throughout the universe to all levels.”
… which is no better than “Because you can’t see Superman or Elvis, it does not mean he is not there”. As to this love, it is the kind gurus and devotees talk about endlessly but somehow cannot be observed or met in most Indian ashrams, only imagined, while in its place the money rolls in from well-heeled credulous people and exotically mind-boggled foreigners.
In response to this report of the fake lingodbhava by an imposter, the Sathya Sai devotee Shubha Ramesh Kumar posted an excerpt of a discourse by his God and guru from ‘Sathya Sai Speaks in 1973, which included:-
This overlooks the fact that Sathya Sai Baba himself was an imposter who pretended to be the reincarnation of Shirdi Sai Baba and many another famous figure from Indian history and mythology, including Rama, Krishna, Vishnu and other avatars! Sathya Sai Baba was just a better actor than Madhu Sudan, but his lingam productions were undoubtedly no more genuine and followed the method of Houdini. When he no longer could manage to swallow the golden lingam before the time he should bring it forth, he reverted to sheer sleight-of-hand, using a handkerchief to cover his mouth before he opened it and let it fall out. The BBC filmed this event when making their film ‘The Secret Swami’ (where his failure was revealed) and he pretended the effort had made him ill, collapsed and went of stage without the lingam appearing. Later he returned holding the lingam, which the crowd was told he had brought forth in the usual manner. Thus hopelessly lost in religious fevered imaginings is the Indian guru follower.

The massive fraud being perpetrated in Muddenahalli, near Bangalore, by Madhu Sudan and his mendacious promoters is testing the limits to which one can go with deception of innocents and desperate seekers of miracles and realisation of vain spiritual hopes. Now this impostor has extended his imitation of Sathya Sai Baba’s more fraudulent ‘miracles’ to allegedly producing a golden Shiva lingam from his stomach, spitting it out without further ado on the night of Shiva (Maha Shivarathri at the new moon).
This lingam production racket is just an old trick of Houdini origin (see here), taken up by many in India and elsewhere.
Mustafa, a street magician or fakir regurgitates a lingam (short video clip)
In the above very brief streaming video clip in MP4 (only a few Kbs), the street illusionist shown was filmed by a German crew I watched filming in 1990 at Brindavan ashram. The German commentary stated that Mustapha, the magician, earns his money as a ‘wonderful artist’ who genuinely brings out a stone from his mouth.
Re Sai Baba Lingam: Trick a star act on British TV
British TV-watchers were very surprised recently when a man appeared on the popular show “Britain’s Got Talent” and swallowed coins, which he could regurgitate at will, even bringing out any particular numbered coin a member of the audience chose. He then proceeded to swallow a full-sized billiard ball, and then regurgitate it. He did all this without drinking water or making grimaces of suffering for quarter of an hour (as Sathya Sai Baba used to do to increase the suspense, for he had a captive audience).
This act is on YouTube:-
Erlendur Haraldsson was completely fooled by Sai Baba: Haraldsson visited Prashanthi Nilayam on at least two occasions after 2000 and before Sai Baba died hoping to see the so-called ‘lingodbhava‘ (alleged materialisation of the egg-shaped Shiva lingam in his stomach, ejected through the mouth). He told me he saw it once from a distance and his view was obscured the other time. As a parapsychological researcher who claims to have been instructed by stage magicians, he has not reported on the failed attempt to regurgitate a lingam in 2002 in the BBC documentary, nor in numerous other video clips. It seems he was still not interested in seeing these. He never contacted the BBC research team (under director Eamon Hardy) nor the Danish TV documentary director Øivind Kyrø (‘Seduced by Sai Baba’). Considering EH’s repeated visits to view the Shivarathri ‘lingam regurgitation’ which SB reintroduced in 2000 after a lapse of many years to counteract the effect of the allegation storm against him, EH apparently did not know that Houdini first developed the trick of swallowing and regurgitating a large egg-shaped object Haraldsson is a confused and would-be believer in Sai Baba’s greatness, without studying the massive contrary evidence.

The continuing Muddenahalli scam engineered by Narasimha Murthy and fronted by former abused Sai student Madhusudan (so-called Sukshma Baba, the fake ‘oracle boy’ invested with Sai Baba’s ‘subtle body) seems to have no bounds. Now he is venturing further and imitating Sathya Sai Baba by spitting out a lingam on Maha Sivarathri. The level of cynical criminality Madhusudana has reached is jaw-dropping. A video shows him quickly spitting out a (small) object, supposedly a lingam (because the occasion was Maha Shivarathri, when Sathya Sai would allegedly produce lingams). Clearly this is just a beginning with a beginner-sized object swallowed and regurgitated (if it even was swallowed). One may expect bigger lingams in future when Madhusudan has had more practice… before he quite likely dares to announce himself as being ‘Prema Sai’ (of conferring this on some groomed boy from Mandya district already heralded as Prema Sai, where Madhusudan and entourage recently visited.
See https://www.facebook.com/shubha.kumar/videos/10158009629135538/ where a critical Sai Baba believer exposes the act as a travesty by a faking pest.
Totally deluded Indians (of which there are so many plus some cognitively challenged foreigners), see it as a miraculous manifestation have no idea that the technique of swallowing and later regurgitating an object like an egg was invented and perfected by the world-famous magician Houdini. It is not divine or miraculous in any respect.
This regurgitation trick has been done by other Hindu gurus and street fakirs, notably the criminal Swami Premananda who did the same on Shivarathri (as well as producing masses of vibuthi). Con-man imitation Sai Baba guru Premananda died in prison years after the Supreme Court convicted him of multiple rape and murder on DNA evidence).
This is incredible credulous India, land of adult belief in stupendous archaic myths and rank superstitions. The majority of the population (even including Presidents, PMs and Government Ministers, judges, celebrities etc) are easy meat for gurus who have learned trickery, guru lore and tantric magic. These frauds are often very smart at presenting themselves with the most positive ‘spiritual’ ideals and service works (which absorb only a proportion of the vast sums they swindle out of the public). The well-intentioned, do-gooder person is very vulnerable to this, especially if they are foreigners, who cannot without decades of involvement find out the iniquitous kinds of deceit – level below level – that are ingrained in so much of Indian life.
A street fakir was filmed in the 1980s doing this (see very short MP4 video clip here)
See The Magic Academy ” Materialization of vibuti, lingams, laddu sweets… easy to learn!“
The Magic Academy taught anyone, probably including swamis, to defraud and deceive with supposed ‘holy miracles’. However, this enterprise ran into great problems and the YouTube video had to be removed. Typical with the Hindu-dominated governments and judiciary.

A young and fully indoctrinated follower of Sathya Sai Baba, Naresh Sharma, is making as big a splash as he can on the internet, ignoring every fact about Sai Baba’s deceptions, failures, crimes and abuses of faith, including sexual abuses. This is seen in his zealous comments on Facebook when I added a comment there. He recently tried to comment on Eileen Weed’s already much visited remarkable YouTube posting Murders in Sai Baba’s Mandir Puttaparthi 1993 – YouTube about the covered-up murders and there accused me of lies and laughable errors about the sums in bribes paid by Sai Baba. He also claimed the boys who slept in Sai Baba’s rooms were pure and indirectly implies that they were not sexually involved. However, the entire furore about these abuses came to light within the Sai movement (and the world press) when a number of students asked for help from their concert pianist music teacher to get Sai Baba to stop these abuses. That eventually brought forth a flood of testimonies and affidavits from others who fell foul of Sai Baba’s sexual and many other abuses.The Sai Baba scandals which broke from 199 have been taken up by many top international news outlets (see documentation) and by UNICEF, the US State Department, UK Parliament and it took the combined force of the devotee Prime and Home Ministers to suppress the CBI investigation when it was close to delivering its guilty verdict.
Since Sharma is ignorant of all this, I made a comment on his Facebook page which fortunately inflamed him to reply at length. Fortunately I captured the long exchange we had before he realised he had lost it and blocked me from his page, realising what a booby he had made of himself by engaging. The comments were as follows:-

Another video in the series of Sai Baba exposure videos on YouTube, Robert interviewed by Eileen ‘Divya’ Weed:-
Click on image or see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zfqOa6D4-1U&feature=youtu.be
I tell of the first I heard of the Sathya Sai Baba sexual abuse allegations by his students and later many others due to the defection of the close Sai devotee concert pianist and friend of the British Royal Family, David Bailey. I did not look at the allegations for a long period, but finally felt I had to as there was such a furore. I remained on the fence for many weeks while I contacted all manner of source, both defenders of Sai Baba and his accusers.
After two months, the verdict was that Sai Baba absolutely definitely was not innocent. I had already excused Sai Baba of involvement in the infamous 1993 executions of four intruder devotees in his rooms, but this changed my viewpoint and I began to research the murders too.
David Bailey’s own investigations were wide-ranging, such as discovering that Sai Baba gave fake objects SB supposedly ‘materialised’ – such as cheap paiste jewellry claimed by SB to be genuine diamonds. I tell how I got my ‘greed diamond’ assayed and found to be a very cheap synthetic sapphire.

The former warden of Brindavan College, Narasimha Murthy held another propaganda talk. He is apparently preparing the ground for an announcement that Prema Sai is in Muddenahalli – presumably in the person of Madhu Sudan, one of Sai Baba former students and sexual partners. Murthy’s efforts gradually led to the hi-jacking of the Sai Baba name and invented “subtle body” residing in the former student, who now behaves exactly as if he were Sai Baba himself.
The insidious Narasimha Murthy – himself accused as having been both a procurer of boys for Sai Baba’s unwanted attentions and himself having shared in the same – was translated from the Kannada language. It received a number rather enraged comments (see scan on right) from those supporters of Prashanthi Nilyam who have not fallen for the Muddenahalli scam. It ran as follows:-
“It has become a big misfortune that people who were worshiping the physical swami , men and women devotees, today because of their misfortune, have distanced themselves from Swami. When swami is going everywhere, and doing everything they close their eyes and say swami is not here. They choose to do pradakshina to the Samadhi of Swaami instead thinking swami is not here. In the same way they unfortunately call themselves as devotees even though they do nothing for Swami.
This misfortune is on the increase in India but very little in the outside countries. Whenever swami goes, the devotees, where ever he goes, they become attracted to him and they are ready to do anything for swami.
Today in this Sai center of Sathyasai Grama, all the boy students studying here or the girls studying in Chikkaballapura, i tell you it is your good fortune that you have the opportunity to take part in this satsangh. You are making a good use of the opportunity. The fact that you dear innocent children are experiencing the Swami that cannot be seen in your heart are far far better than those devotees is something I would like to say very firmly.
Such massive amount of work is going on everywhere. Bhuvna just said someone by name Swami Sadashivam in Cochin has stated that this is just a transition. A transition where Sathya Sai Baba, is coming back as Prema Sai and will declare his avatarhood in Muddenahalli and has initiated this process through the subtle Sathya Sai with Madhusudhan Naidu as the medium. He is thereby giving much ananda (joy) to so many devotees by doing this. I conclude my talk here.”

We are all advised by a lunatic fringe Sai Baba dupe not to forget to participate in ‘Happy Day’ chanting, because that is the ONLY WAY to change the world! Remember that ‘Swami’ will benefit also… How anyone can consider this other than totally stupid is a mystery that exceeds all credibility.

Now on YouTube is a short account of the Sai organisation and ashram’s massive cover-up of the facts of the murders in Sai Baba’s rooms , which was supported right up to the top of Government (Prime Minister N. Rao, High Chief Justice Bhagwati, Home Minister S.B. Chavan)

Found on ‘Sai Bliss’ Facebook page. They built a platform to perform arathi (waving of the camphor light) every week at the (usually empty of water) Chitravati river in Puttaparthi? Trying to make this like the centuries-old worshiped ‘Ganga’ river in North India? The article states: “The Harathi point would soon have great fervour.” I hope no one is holding their breath awaiting that time. Laughable!
With ground water disappearing and bore wells drying up throughout the town and surrounding areas (most people have water in their homes only by purchasing water delivered by tankers at high cost), we are wondering where they will get water to fill the river, as stated in the article? (But the much touted water project has not succeeded, so maybe the last hope is pujas to Indra Sai Baba?). Any guesses as to how much of the $370,000 ‘beautification’ funds made it into the pockets of local officials? They will probably have trouble even finding a priest to do the weekly arathi (Harathi), and observers will probably be scarcer even than the water is. But as the Creator of the Universe (as he proclaimed himself to be), he once boasted:-
“Divine resolve is always true resolve. Remember there is nothing that divine power cannot accomplish. It can transmute earth into sky and sky into earth. To doubt this is to prove that you are too weak to grasp great things, the grandeur of the universe.” (43rd birthday Discourse, 23 November 1968)

In order that people who read about Sai Baba can better see what his main present-day ex-follower critics are like and what they have to say, the first of a series of YouTube videos made together with former insider and Telugu speaker Eileen ‘Divya’ Weed is now on-line. We both draw on our long experience of Sai Baba, the ashram, the teachings and – in my case – the international Sathya Sai Organisation. In the coming months, further YouTube videos will appear regularly and they will be announced with links on this site.
See Eileen Weed interviewed on The 1993 Prashanthi Temple Murders She was present during the entire episode, which she watched from the room of Sai Baba’s elder sister, Venkamma, just above the temple, and she was involved during that night in supporting the efforts of those who caught the intruders. So hear her most convincing and frank account of the facts.

The Hindustan Times claims that a top-secret CIA 16-page report intended to be withheld from foreign nationals has been released. It is among some 13 million declassified documents from the CIA that have been released online. What is unusual about the contents is that its author (name unknown) spoke of the growth of a “worldwide mass religious movement” around the “alleged miracle worker” Sai Baba’ that was a “well-organised and financed movement…may even become another worldwide religion”. It listed the claims that Sathya Sai Baba was the “Kalki Avatar”, similar to the return of Jesus or the Muslim Mahdi who is expected to “create a new world of peace and justice”. The report lists many of the claimed miraculous powers of Sai Baba, adding that these have not been scientifically verified.
At that time Sai Baba was still in the ascendency, the flood of serious and extremely well-founded allegations of his sexual abuses on male followers, murder involvement, fraud and a host of deceptions had not broken. Since 2000, however, all possibility of the spread of Sai Baba’s extraordinary megalomania and Hindu-based doctrine has virtually faded into anonymity, certainly so outside parts of India. This demise was hastened by a large number of abuse testifiers, critics and central defectors from Sai Baba and his organisation, backed by the JuST group and the tireless work of the exposé backers.
The report can be read in full here: Cultural Trends Study: India’s Sai Baba Movement, and the Hindustan Times article is CIA files: ‘Alleged miracle worker’ Sathya Sai Baba could start world religion’.
