Sathya Sai Baba Deceptions Exposed

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

Master Plan for Puttaparthi? UPDATED!

Posted by robertpriddy on June 11, 2020

The proposition for a major development of Puttaparthi into an international tourist destination, first reported years ago and revisited many times (not least of which was in September 2019), has again been revised in a Hans India article dated 2 June 2020.

Sathya Sai Baba has been dead and buried for nine (9) years now. Puttaparthi has hardly any visitors, as the evidence of wrongdoing and the fact that the baba constantly sexually abused young boys for many decades, has spread far and wide.

Puttaparthi is now just a typical small town with normal families going about their normal lives. How will they attract tens of thousands of spiritual-minded tourists to pay for the “Yoga Wellness Centre” and the “Food Park”? Wait and watch my friends – wait and watch!

This massive project promises to be yet another “White Elephant” of waste, just like the Sathya Sai Airport, vacant year round, is now.

Master plan prepared for development of Puttaparthi: MLA D Sridhar Reddy

2 Jun 2020 12:48 AM IST

Puttaparthi (Anantapur) : MLA D Sridhar Reddy stated that he will strive to develop Puttaparthi as an international tourist destination. Already the spiritual town has a brand image due to the visit of several people from abroad when Bhagawan Sathya Sai Baba was alive.

The town has many guest houses and private resorts built by foreign devotees of the Baba and it will be developed on the lines of Mantralaya, he said.

Sathya Sai National Park, Underground drainage and underground power cables, a ring road, R&B circuit guest house, Food Park and Yoga Wellness Centre will be part of Rs 1,000 crore development project, he added.

Sridhar Reddy said to The Hans India that a master plan had been drafted prior to covid 19 lockdown.

Soon the issue will be taken to the notice of Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy.

APIIC will provide 100 acres of land for Food Park, and Roads and Buildings department will be investing Rs.350 crore on the 31.5 km ring road development covering Manillakunta Cross, Kothacheruvu, Puttaparthi and Bukkapatnam mandals. Already 60 acres had been identified for the Yoga Wellness Centre, he further said.

MLA Sridhar asked officials to take steps for planting trees on the proposed ring road connecting Puttaparthi-Bukkapatnam-Kothacheruvu. A fountain at the Chitravati dam and also a giant statue of Baba for attracting tourists are also planned by the MLA.

Why have so few Sai insiders come forward to tell the truth?

Posted by robertpriddy on June 10, 2020

Suggestion:

They cannot recognise the truth, because they will not accept many facts that undermine the self-evaluation of Sathya Sai Baba himself.

Below is a warning from 2001, posted on a now defunct yahoo group.

Scary stuff that needs to be exposed

From knkitts on: Sathya Sai Baba Discussion Club, message 2474:   http://clubs.yahoo.com/clubs/sathyasaibabadiscussionclub (Yahoo Groups has since been deleted)

Date: 8/6/01 9:22 p.m.

Dear all,
I’m going to come out with the full dirt as I’ve heard it on Sai Baba, sex cowboy. I’m being flippant to deal with my revulsion as I write, so please forgive my intermittent attempts at humor.
Some years ago now, another woman ex-devotee gave me the phone number of a fellow in California (where I live) who’d taught at SB’s school for (unfortunately betrayed) boys at Puttaparthi for many years. I called this fellow up, and he spilled his guts on the condition of privacy. I believe that he was justifiably concerned about repercussions as to his having spoken out, so I’ll leave him nameless. Devotee readers, please trust that what I’m saying is not fictional. I have no desire to incur negative karma by stating lies.


This fellow (X) and I spoke for over one and a half hours. He told me things I’d never imagined of. He said that that SB’s brother runs Puttaparthi like a Mafia don, demanding kickbacks and silence in exchange for the economic benefits that having a “guru” on site brings. He also said that the villagers are terrified for their lives because of SB’s brother, and that it takes a long time (if ever) for the villagers to trust outsiders and tell them what’s really going on.

X told me that over the years a few villagers and college boys came to trust him and told him nightmarish accounts. Several college boys told him of the extensive sexual molestation and swore him to secrecy because they were scared for their lives. Villagers told X that in a few instances SB had also molested women and then had them murdered, and that their bodies were buried in the hills surrounding Puttaparthi.

It apparently came to the attention of SB’s henchmen that X knew too much, and he told me that a terrified villager told him that he’d heard that X was marked for death and that he had to leave the ashram immediately to save his life.

That statement carries implications that reader can evaluate for themselves. At any rate, X fled Puttaparthi and returned to the US. He told the members of his local center what he’d experienced and was met by deaf ears and denial. He has since reestablished his career in the US and completely distanced himself from the sai organization.

X’s sincerity was almost tangible over the phone. I have no reason to doubt him. I live in Los Osos, California. I do not fear SB. It’s taken me years to be open about what I’ve experienced and heard about the false avatar in whom I once so implicitly believed.

Prime Minister of India: please you must shut Sai Baba’s operation down! He is an insult to the true masters of Mother Bharati and a cultural embarrassment to an extraordinary spiritual heritage of a nation.


Love, Kyra

SAI BABA ‘MY LIFE IS MY MESSAGE’

Posted by robertpriddy on November 23, 2019

AN EXAMPLE TO FOLLOW?

As the decades rolled by, nearly all Sathya Sai Babas activities became more and more self-centered, self-glorifying, exaggerated, and opulent… and thus hollow at the core. It is all statues, tinsel thrones and pompous vehicles, monumental buildings with no purpose other than to try to improve Sathya Sai Baba’s image (now so tainted) and the endless and wasteful personality cult of Sathya Sai Baba worship. The progressively emerging evidence about him – and his past – lead anyone with openness and perceptivity more and more to doubt the essentials of many stories. Much of what is told is evidently based on over-zealous interpretations and mental-emotional ‘projections’ of very subtle kinds. Most of the alleged healings are surely cases of placebo and/or concentration-projection focused on Sathya Sai Baba, functioning as a symbol or ‘spiritual catalyst’. These phenomena are also very common with countless other so-called ‘healers’. Sathya Sai Baba is nonetheless able to appear involved, exercising some role, mainly through the powers of telepathy, entering dreams and such like, in many persons minds.

An oft-repeated claim by Sathya Sai Baba, parroted by devotees, is that many kinds of unfair and undocumented accusations have been leveled against Sai Baba through the years, both by sceptics and followers who are dissatisfied or disappointed by unfulfilled expectations as to Sai Baba’s attention etc. This is based on his own pronouncements about how unfairly all good people have always been treated by their jealous contemporaries, and that he will be no exception himself. His defensiveness towards all who may leave him is seen in Sai Baba’s monthly journal, Sanathana Sarathi (11-92, p. 261), “The minds of the so-called devotees are turned in the wrong direction. If their desires are fulfilled, they praise Me. But, once a desire is not realised they go to the extent of even reviling me. Even while they are attempting to understand Me, they harbour doubts from head to foot. Some even leave me, when their worldly desires are not fulfilled.” He also takes the sly precaution of warning that he will have to separate “the grain from the chaff”, as if it were his own plan that devotees who cease to believe or accept him are rejected by him firstly! Why would this self-proclaimed compassionate avatar wish to rubbish people who do not accept him any longer because they have found he does not measure up to his many wildly excessive claims? The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind!

One cannot but note that such predictions are most convenient for those who know they have something to hide that will not stand the light of day but which will probably eventually be discovered. They can then defend themselves by saying, ‘I predicted this all along’. The propensities Sai Baba has most apparently been unable to overcome, were reportedly told about to various persons by one of his earliest and closest followers who shared his bedroom for several of his post-pubescent years (the pair of them were known locally as ‘Radha and Krishna’, according to Vijayamma), and it would moreover be hugely naïve to believe that he never had sexual stirrings in the normal way. He has once actually told in a discourse that the sexual instinct is the hardest of all tendencies for humans to overcome. That homosexual relations with minors are evidently quite widespread and tacitly accepted in much of India – where it is also illegal even between consenting adults! – does not mean that they are openly accepted or practically non-criminal in the wider society, so guilt and the need to cover up must also be equally widespread.

“When I am defamed, I never get incensed, for it is only the tree full of edible fruits that is attached by sticks and stones.” (Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. 4 p. 184). Yes, Sai Baba ignored his critics as long as they tended to fade away, but now that the allegations of child molestation and homosexual intrusions have stuck to him indelibly at last (and on a global scale), along with powerful evidence that awaken grave suspicions of his involvement in the 1993 murders incident, he was roused and raised his voice angrily while thumping his lectern in the famous Xmas discourse of 2000. “I never get incensed” is therefore demonstrably wrong. He lashed out at his critics as Judases who take money to defame him, as demons and so forth. Despite this, the sufficiently brain-softened devotee will repeat Sai Baba’s very convenient words that, though he may appear to be angry or show human emotions, he is actually wholly umoved by everything. So he could easily stand by and hear the cold-blooded execution by rifle-fire of four of his long-serving devotees without any emotion! How convenient for him! But no so convenient for everyone! He can rage like a mad lion (as experienced by Prof. Kasturi and described by other devotees), all while pretending he was as calm as a cucumber. He intimidates his students in various ways (and sometimes their teachers too, as I saw him do in public in 1987).

One may hold that verbal attacks often tell more about the attacker’s thoughts and motives than about the victim. This certainly applied to Sai Baba’s dire threats in this case. He has long preached how negative rumours are like boomerangs, but then he sets going the absurdly false rumour that those who accused him did so for money, like Judases! (See Divine Discourse 25.12.2000). “From the feet to the hair on the head, Sathya Sai Baba is doing service without any selfishness. Can’t even these people with brains understand this? Why are they doing this propaganda? Even this bad propaganda is for money. Even these bad thoughts are for money only…Switzerland, America, Japan, Germany, China, Russia – our children have entered in all directions. Some foreigners are trying to bribe them. They are saying, “See, foolish ones! I will give this much money. I will give so many dollars. I will give this many pounds. You write and give some stories against Sathya Sai Baba.”

This is nothing short of a direct, massive lie, but one which many of his cowed and dependent followers believe. On the contrary, the shortage of Sai Baba’s own funds due to fall-off in donations was surely one of the main causes of his bending to the wishes of his anxious coterie to hit back at his accusers. He ranted on: “These types of publicity are shameless. Truly they are not human beings at all. The ones who put obstacles in the way of all sacred works are demons, not human beings. The determined vow of Sai will never change, even if demons like this may be all over the world. (Swami bangs his fist decisively on the table to emphasize His point. The audience applauds for long.)”

A person is judged by both his words and his actions… he who always pretended that he was so even-minded and beyond praise and blame that he never reacted… He has set up himself as the only perfect example for all to follow, but he could not refrain from angry lies and scandal-mongering! His example has since been followed by top Sai-organisation leaders in the USA and Denmark, who have actually demonstrably known about male sexual interference by Sai Baba for decades, which information they have suppressed. In Denmark, the leaders Thorbjørn Meyer, Steen Piculell, and Prof. Peter Pruzan have maligned victims shamelessly and have failed to investigate the mass of current allegations against Sai Baba which they reject out of hand.

Master Plan for Puttaparthi?

Posted by robertpriddy on October 7, 2019

A report in late September 2019 stated that Puttaparthi will be developed into an “International Tourist Spiritual destination”, a 1,000 crore project. This will apparently include a 100 acre land for a Food Park and 60 acres for a Yoga Wellness Center.

It is quite amusing to hear of the large wasteful investments in hope of a internationally recognised spiritual destination… the dwindling attraction of a dead and gone charlatan God. I wonder what the “R & B Circuit Guest House’” will be. Part of a showbiz circuit for Rhythm and Blues artists and their fans? Ha, ha!

Then, the 100 acre ‘Food Park’ intrigued me… will they be selling sought-after culinary delicacies as Parthi-pizza, coconut and/or vegetable rolls, PN canteen food? That will bring in the ’spiritual visitors’ in their hordes, no doubt.

A full sixty acres of Yoga wellness rather suggests the estimated ill health and degeneration of devotees. What will doubtless be the destruction of the already naturally beautiful Chitravati river bed and surroundings is a mindless shame.

Why can’t people leave good alone? I can’t imagine many people making a pilgrimage to see it all!

Hans News Service
30 Sep 2019 2:39 AM IST

Anantapur: District Collector S Sathyanarayana stated that Puttaparthi, the abode of late Sathya Sai Baba, will be developed as an International Tourist Spiritual destination. A detailed project report (DPR) will be prepared soon and the state government will send it to the central government for financing the project, he said.

The Collector convened a meeting in this regard and Puttaparthi MLA D Sridhar presided over it. The town will be developed on the lines of Icon City in Mantralaya.

APIIC will provide 100 acres of land for Food Park and already some parties have evinced interest in investing on Food Park. Roads and Buildings department will be investing Rs.350 crores on the 31.5 km Ring road development covering Manillakunta Cross, Kothacheruvu, Puttaparthi and Bukkapatnam mandals.

Already 60 acres have been identified for the Yoga Wellness Centre. Chitravati river-bed beautification will also be part of the Greater Puttaparthi Development. A 33 KV sub-station is also proposed in the Puttaparthi town, he added.

Sathya Sai Baba ‘materialisation’ of green gemstone ring and silver medallion

Posted by robertpriddy on April 12, 2019

Sai Baba ‘green diamond ring’ and silver medallion – but in reality not materialised at all. The gemstone proved to be a syntheti gren sapphire…worth a few dollars! The ring was 18 carat gold. The medallion was silver.

Sandipan Chatterjee, former follower of Sai Baba sought by his family

Posted by robertpriddy on April 6, 2019

Sandeepan Chatterjee was one of the key people in charge of ‘editing’ the jounal ‘Sanathan Sarathi’ along with another senior gentleman. This work was done at Sai Towers in Puttaparthi. Apparently, he was forced to leave Puttaparth and tried to recreate his life in Bangalore but without success. There are rumors that he may have settled in Australia.  I am informed that his family lost touch with him and that his mother now lies bedridden after a hip fracture lamenting the loss of her son.
It would be of great help to his family and friends if anyone can supply information of his whereabouts and, if possible, give an e-mail or other address or means of contacting hem.me if you could put the word out about him among your colleagues/ friends about him. Please send any information either to <promita1234@yahoo.com> or to this website at <rero@getmail.no>. Alternatively, one can make a comment on this blog with the information (it will not be posted or disclosed except to the family).
Thanks, Robert Priddy

Sai Baba lingam fraud perpetuated by Madhusudana

Posted by robertpriddy on March 11, 2019

The self-appointed, trumped-up copyist of Sathya Sai Baba known as ‘Bhagawan’ Sukshma Baba (aka Madhusudana) performed the Houdini stage act of producing a lingam (claiming it formed in his stomach:
As the intensity and vibrations increased, a golden Lingam emerged around forty-five minutes into the overnight Bhajans. Brother Madhusudan is simply a hollow instrument of Bhagawan, who lends himself to Bhagawan so completely and freely for Bhagawan to do as He pleases, that the Lord used his persona to manifest His will of Lingodbhavam! This is truly an unprecedented account in the history of humanity where human and divine merge as one, to achieve the divine will!

This parody can be viewed at length on the promotional video at: https://youtu.be/vGISmFlfUac

Sukshma Baba subsumed in Sathya Sai Baba?   December 5, 2018

Or is Sathya subsumed by Sukshma (Madhusudana of Muddenahalli)? Is it ‘all one’ and the same? Or does it even matter? One fact is certain, the difference in intelligence about the physical world is nil… and the laughable confusion of the statement on the Bermuda Triangle and magnetism is a masterpiece of nonsense! Join One […]

Madhusudan gang trash SB’s promise to return as Prema Sai

A short video viewable at https://www.dropbox.com/s/5vczpq0lou4q2yj/5cf92e00-208c-485f-a021-af46a543b640.mp4.mov?dl=0 shows how the Muddenahalli gang are trying to secure Madhusudana’s situation as Sai Baba’s ‘medium’ for the next ten years. So Prema Sai will not get a look in until Madhu very likely will proclaim he himself is Prema Sai (not that Prema Sai is – or ever was – […]

Prema Sai announcement by Sukshma Baba

The Muddenahalli ‘oracle boy’ known as Sukshma Baba (aka Dewreddy Madhusudan Rao Naidu) has now ‘revealed’ details about Prema Sai, who he claims is born and will not become known until he is 14 years old. (This amends Sukshma Baba’s report: 5 more years before Sai leaves this form.) He previously announced that he’s only working in […]

Lingam ‘materialised’ by Sukshma Baba on Maha Sivarathri!

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 […]

Muddenahalli plans to usurp Prema Sai

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 […]

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

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 […]

Ganapathy Raju (Sai Baba’s cousin): Serious complaint about Ratnakar, Prashanthi Nilayam

Posted by robertpriddy on March 10, 2019

Sathya Sai Baba’s cousin Ganapathy Raju went public with serious complaints about the Prashanthi takeover by Ratnakar, but the only reports we got were watered down briefs from online newspapers.

Below is his original e-mail that he no doubt distributed widely, which includes several attached, important and very detailed documents! However no one seems to have made any of the valuable documents public, as he had perhaps hoped.

—– Original Message —–
From: Ganapathy Raju
To: Ganapathy Raju
Sent: Friday, June 28, 2013 12:29 PM
Subject: Fwd: Sub: Request to join hands in bringing back the past and lost Glory of Bhagawan’s Empire from the culprit trustees who are not functioning as trustee but, as day time robbers.

Dear Sai Community,
It is high time that, culprits be punished and the need of an hour is to seek CBI enquiry on to the health and treatment to Bhagawan given in detail. The devotees need to know the exact date and time of Bhagawan left us physically. The issue of which is still mystery.
The recent cyber crime enquiry (the details attached herewith reveals) the kind of trustees we have in Great Sathya Sai Central Trust, who looked innocents during Bhagawan’s presence.

We need all the culprits to payback all that, they have stolen with interest and be terminated from the trusteeship without further loss of time.
Also please find few of the attachments which throw light on the atrocities of the culprit trustees. There is an enquiry on cyber crime committed by one of the trustees who claimed to be a family member of Sathya Sai Baba. In this name, this culprit’s unlimited atrocities have been attached for your immediate reference and request you all not to give any importance to such culprit in the trust.

There was a police enquiry on money shifting by Ratnakar and Srinivasan, Governor’s order into trustees illegal land grabbing and many other issues, another enquiry on Cyber crime committed by one of the trustees.  I appealed to senior trustees several times but, no action has been taken by them. This amounts to say either they too have joined hands with the culprits or they are not capable to handle the culprits. When they cannot handle them effectively, it is better they resign and make way for students to run the trust with utmost responsibility.

Till date Ms.Meena Kumari is dictating terms in the trust’s administration by using car belongs to the trust with fuel and driver’s  salary along with many such facilities at the cost of devotees contributions shamelessly. Please let us all know on what capacity she is doing so.
If, no action against culprit trustees is taken in a week’s time, I shall go for a vast campaign and press meet all over the country giving full details with several evidences on these culprits. At least these culprits should have resigned owing to the police enquiries, Governor’s order to enquire into the illegal activities, and cyber crime investigations.

Do we still call them trustees? Or day time robbers! Who are indulging in many atrocities till date? Also I would appeal to IT, and Finance department to withdraw 80G and FCR facilities for being misused of the act by these culprit trustees and for severe violations of the act.

I would have no further complaints if, the culprits are removed and replaced by Swami’s students under able guidance like Sri.Chakravarthi.
If no trace of action found like in the past, I would go ahead with my task even if it costs me my life. If the readers of this mail are true devotees, please think over to it before Bhagawan’s Empire is fully damaged.

I strongly feel Bhagawan is looking for someone to shoulder the responsibility of reforming the trust from the present situation like Krishna getting it done through Arjuna and Bhima, Rama with the assistance of Hanuman and Lord Shiva through Karthikeya. We should not be thinking that, HE would take care of HIS Empire. He is testing us all that, what would be the action/responsibility of His devotees under this situation.

Sai Ram,
M.Ganapathy Raju.
First cousin of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba,
Puttaparthi.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ex-devotees have confirmed the bit about Ratnakar taking over the cable network in Puttaparthi. One of my informants had cable TV but only a few general channels came in, and all the non-partial Indian news stations that spoke out against Sai Baba were excluded. The TV screen going black on several occasions when something negative about Parthi was being reported, so the network was under very sophisticated control.

Paul William Roberts: Sathya Sai Baba defender

Posted by robertpriddy on February 15, 2019

A confirmed Sathya Sai Baba devotee and author, Paul William Roberts, wrote about the spirituality of the east in his book ‘Empire of the Soul’. The book is fairly entertaining about India and gives some fair descriptions of some of its many spiritual frauds (Rajneesh, Mother Theresa) and extraordinary yogis like Shiva Bala Yogi, who I also met on several occasions. However, his chapter of Sai Baba is now very much dated (to use a very mild term) in view of all that has emerged from countless sources to show that Sai Baba was not at all as he seemed to those who worshipped him, like the young Paul William Roberts.

While his description of Puttaparthi and the ashram was telling enough, his writing about Sai Baba’s story was recanting without critical awareness of what the many devotee hagiographies related many, many times before. The hagiographies which he drew on lacked any reliable sources, consisting overwhelmingly in zealots’ subjective perceptions of their (often mentally and emotionally pre-programmed) experiences and unidentifiable second-hand stories laced with regurgitated ‘sai-official’ disinformation. In view of how many people, luminaries and news media, embraced Sai Baba as a genuine holy man (and much, much more besides, it is understandable that Roberts’ account relied on putative ‘facts’ which since then have been entirely discredited (to all but the diminishing band of zealots in denial), most especially since 2000 and again after his ‘incomprehensible’ and ignominious death in 2011. He wrote,

Incidents, some well documented few even on film, have him creating fairly large objects, substantial amounts of food, raising the dead, healing the sick, appearing in two places thousands of kilometres apart at the same time, and altering at will the laws of time, space and basic physics.”  (‘Empire of the Soul’ Chapter 3 – p. 37 in original Canadian edition, 1994. US edition 1996).

Like so many others, he accepted this without normal critical research or reservation of judgement into the veracity of such unprecedented claims, even though many who then (almost) believed they could be true (mea culpa). The chief raising from the dead claim was long since been exploded by the investigation of parapsychologist Dr. Erlendur Haraldsson, and he found no evidence of bi-location, though he questioned those involved. Sai Baba did not allow Haraldsson and Osis properly to test or confirm the materialisation claims despite many visits there. Sai Baba famously claimed to be the Creator of the Universe and the Father who sent Jesus (all of which should make anyone doubly suspicious surely?)

We read that Sathya Sai Baba told him all about his (P.W. Roberts’) life and gave a breakdown of his personality.  As the world now knows, Sai Baba became a very widely accused (but government and judiciary protected) sexual abuser, nor confront the many incontravertible testimonies and exposures of his many abuses of faith and murder involvement. which he has . Then Sai Baba circled his hand and “a white oily substance” appeared “in his palm”. “Somehow, I knew what he wanted to do, so I lifted my shirt and let him rub this substance into my chest. I kept thanking him profusely.”  He also reported that his next few days were spent in a daze of happiness and became a blur.  (‘Empire of the Soul’ Chapter 3 – p. 37 in original Canadian edition, 1994. US edition 1996). This occurred in a private interview, though he in 2004 he gave a somewhat different account of what Sai Baba did in an e-mail he wrote explicitly suggesting it could be openly circulated among Sai Baba devotees. In short, his published account was not strictly true on a rather embarrassing point of which body part Sai Baba massaged when PWR ‘lifted his shirt’. (Interestingly, one student who was abused by Sai Baba told how, when he was given the task of cleaning in the private interview room, found a stash of rings and lockets of the kind SB claimed to ‘materialise’ and also a receptacle with a fragrant liquid and a sponge under his chair).

After being kept waiting long for recognition from one who one had come to be almost convinced was a holy person, if not the Deity of all Deities as Sai Baba himself claimed, most devotees who met him in an interview were strongly predisposed to be overwhelmed. P.W. Roberts was selected by Sai Baba to address his own captive audience in the Poorna Chandra hall at Puttaparthi – considered a great honour. Later he was accorded a yet greater honour, of teaching at the Sathya Sai Baba Vidyagiri Deemed University in Puttaparthi. At no time since then has PWR published any revision of his published claims and errors about Sai Baba as one would have expected from any writer claiming to purvey truth and be a competent journalist. After all, it has been very widely testified by dozens of his close (former) devotees to have been a serial sexual abuser (but government and judiciary protected) and yet worse he is known to his entire family, many residents at his ashram and some brave journalists to have colluded with his brother and the police to execute four of his devotees who intruded into his quarters in 1993. His other massive abuses of faith and gross deceptions have been documented on-line by hundreds of people. Considering PWR’s book is still available and promotes Sathya Sai Baba as virtually beyond all human understanding and of his highly questionable puritanical, speculative and self-contradictory ‘religious teaching’. Since then, Roberts has not seen fit to publish any revised account . It may well be that PWR is still enamoured of his experience with Sai Baba his highly questionable puritanical, speculative and self-contradictory ‘religious teachings’, having long indoctrinated himself deeply in Vedic hymns, rituals and primitive knowledge that he can no longer see the wood for the trees.

Later two other Westerners who were once prominent in Sai Baba’s sphere and also taught heard of alleged sexual abuses of students by Sai Baba and, after doubting these stories for a long time, they eventually investigated  the issue most thoroughly. Concert pianist David Bailey was then the great favourite of 100 interviews and a globe-trotting promoter of Sai Baba not least because he performed for Queen Elizabeth and taught both British princes students music and also Sai Baba college students. He was approached by some of them who evidently trusted him greatly, asking if he could help them in stopping Sai Baba from sexually abusing them. Bailey became a major investigator and whistleblower on Sai Baba, and he learned with certainty from young men and various parents that such had taken place along with many other covered-up untoward matters. Subsequently, Barry Pittard, also a teachers at Sai colleges during the time Roberts himself was there, and who knew Roberts then, later discovered íncontravertable proof that Sai Baba’s illegal genital touching went far further than that… he was an outright sexual abuser for his own pleasure. Mails I have show that Pittard contacted Roberts about the issue but was also rebuffed.

To take one of many serious investigators’ testimonies: The editor of the famous magazine Nexus, Duncan Roads, (see here)- wrote the following: “I had heard the many rumours about Sai Baba’s sexual impropriety over the years, and like many, dismissed them as disgruntled devotees. Later on, I actually took those attacks as ‘evidence’ that Sai Baba was growing in influence, and that this was the ’system’ attacking him. Unlike Sai Baba believers, I have an open mind, one which allows me to read and listen to things that Sai Baba believers refuse even to allow into their consciousness.  I read some of the more recent testimonies, and decided to investigate for once and for all to put an end to the rumours. I ended up speaking to many victims, parents of victims, former Sai Baba centre ‘leaders’ and some respected ‘figureheads’ from the movement.  All confirmed the same pattern of abuse and sexual misconduct. I did not want to believe any of these testimonies, but I also had to be true to what I was uncovering.  Sai Baba is, and has, been involved in sexual misconduct with boys and young men.  The effects of this misconduct has caused unestimatable damage within many many families, including suicides.

PWR admitted that he knew of cases of gential oiling and (around 2004) he was aware that young persons had gone public and testified against the multi-billionaire and politically most influential Sai Baba, a homosexual misuser of boys and young men (see massed evidence I already knew three of them well before they told of being abused). SB was very widely reported as having groomed boys and young men by applying oil to their stomachs, genitals, sometimes repeatedly in fresh interviews. This was widely testified to have been preliminary grooming or ‘testing’, as it preceded future sexual acts. He often followed-up in various and often very erotic and perverse ways. Informed by various persons, PWR earlier refused then to accept the possibility that Sai Baba ever abused anyone sexually, despite the brave outspoken young men who most credibly described being molested, including the testimony from two US ‘victims’ on BBC World’s major exposure of Sai Baba’s fraudulence and alleged criminality, ‘The Secret Swami’. Despite all this, plus the overwhelming evidence from sworn testimonies and parents of minors sexually abused by SB, Roberts has in recent years blogged that he does not believe Sai baba sexually abused anyone! This is the same kind of sheer denial long observed in others who fear not losing their faith in SB and all it involves emotionally, mentally, and socially. 

Despite all that and much more to show Sai Baba was far from being what he claimed he was, that he made countless false claims, wrong predictions galore, employed outright fraud and sleight-of-hand, was seriously involved in permitting executions in his apartment by police and much more, PWR has issued no comment. Is this not the kind of covering-up of past errors with which he charges so many of his media critics? Why has this ‘brilliant investigative journalist’ as some admirers call him, not done his duty to the public in correcting his highly exaggerated account of Sai Baba (whose promised protection he was evidently not himself accorded)? Perhaps it is a case of not letting facts get in the way of his convictions, for he has recently written “I do confess, however, to possessing scant regard for specifics if they strike me as less relevant than the overarching truth about which I am writing. Why let facts stand in the way of a general reality?”  Many people throughout history from idiot to savants, have thought they knew the overarching reality, but the facts have eventually defeated most of them. 

Among other outright errors, being taken in by some of the massive hyped false propaganda, PWR repeated such wild claims as Sai Baba had  “announced that he was the reincarnation of a holy man almost no one in South India had even heard of”, namely Shirdi Sai Baba from Maharashtra. But many in his area did know of him and some relations of his were even worshippers of the supposed saint; there were even temples to Shirdi Sai Baba in various locations there. Besides, most Shirdi Baba followers strenuously reject Sathya’s claim. Roberts also promoted the now-patent falsehood of Sathya’s predicted death: “After he dies, this to be at the age of ninety-six in the year 2022, Prema Sai Baba will be born four years later also somewhere in South India.” Sai Baba died in April, 2011, though he had made several different documented predictions of his coming death, all wrong by at least a decade.

Originally, I tried to warn Roberts of his error in supporting a pedophile, and eventually posted one short blog about his own admitted inaccurate reporting of the ‘oiling’ incident. But In a recent mail to me, Roberts wrote that he ‘has no recollection’ of any exchanges between us and claims that what I had posted quoting some excerpts from those mails was ‘patently a fabrication’. That was not sensible, though Roberts seems habitually to have accused his political critics of fabrication and cover-up among many other sins, even though sometimes with justification. However, we did indeed have several heated exchanges about his views on Sai Baba, which were sent for open distribution to another former devotee, and the quotes are 100% accurate and provable with data source materials and testimony from several recipients of the exchanges at the time, should it be necessary. I do not necessarily accuse him of lying outright since, on his new blog site he explains how he has suffered from alcoholism. In his blog he speaks of being “being too drunk or tormented by demons“.  Also “My tactics consisted of self-pity (enormous doses), drugs (doses as enormous as I could obtain or afford), alcohol (as much as I could consume before falling unconscious – and I mean litres of whiskey, not a few dry sherries), then bouts of raving insanity, about which I recall mercifully little, of course

This might well explain lack of memory. He suffered a major crisis in which both his retina became perforated and made him blind (now having only 7% vision in one eye). He has since blogged at length about how he had to accept hospitalisation and psychiatric examination. Sad as that is, it does not alter the fact that he wrote me a very aggressive mails which, as things stand at present, I omit here, though all are preserved in my archive.

Gurmeet Ram Rahim Murder Trial

Posted by robertpriddy on January 19, 2019

ndtv.com

Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh paid tribute to Sathya Sai Baba with a bhajan.
Comment, ‘Birds of a feather flock together’

CHANDIGARH: Age seems to be catching up with Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, once known as “Rockstar Baba” and “Guru of Bling” for his embellished clothes. His beard has gone grey and his face “looked pale” as he appeared via video conferencing before a special CBI court on Friday, son of killed journalist Ram Chander Chhatarpati, Anshul Chhatarpati, said.
Ram Chander was killed in Haryana’s Sirsa in 2002 after his newspaper published an anonymous letter alleging sexual exploitation of women by the self-styled godman. The court convicted Singh and three others for the journalist’s murder.

The 51-year-old sect head was named as the main conspirator in the case. Anshul said while his family got emotional on hearing the court’s verdict, Singh appeared shocked. Already serving a 20-year sentence for raping two of his followers, the self-styled godman is
staring at a life term or capital punishment after he was found guilty of murder and criminal conspiracy.

The quantum of punishment will be announced by the court on January 17. Before being convicted in the rape case in August 2017, Singh was known for his lavish lifestyle, a penchant for modified motorbikes, his music videos and scripting, directing and starring in his films. The burly, bearded man was also known for his love for sports and apparently holds dozens of records, including those for the world’s largest vegetable mosaic and largest finger painting.

Singh’s Twitter account, now suspended, described him as “Spiritual saint/Philanthropist/Versatile singer/All-rounder sportsperson/Film director/Actor/Art director/Music director/Writer/Lyricist/Autobiographer/DOP”.

He is also facing trial for allegedly forcing 400 of his followers to undergo castration in a bid to “get closer to god”, besides allegedly murdering former Dera manager Ranjit Singh in 2002.

SOME OF SATHYA SAI BABA’S FAILED PREDICTIONS

Posted by robertpriddy on January 15, 2019

Sathya Sai Baba made many predictions in private interview situations, where it was taboo to repeat to others afterwards, but SB knew well that they would spread like wildfire as uncontrollable rumours. When the predictions failed, which they invariably did, there was no documentary proof that he made them, and devotees dare not confront him or what he says in any way. The same with many of the alleged ‘leelas’ and ‘divine miracles’; they were very important to the Sai Baba legend and were mixed up with disinformation, a clever technique at which Sathya Sai Baba was an adept at using his willing but unwitting collaborators to propagate.
In 2002, a long-term devotee who was on her 31st visit to see Sathya SaiBaba, had a private interview (in the rear room) which she reported on the Internet (see http://www.saibaba.ws/reports/connieshaw.htm) and which is reproduced in excerpt here (on right).

Now that 2008 has long passed, international war continues in Afghanistan, while an horrific relentless war rages in Syria, with proven covert intervention from Iran and Lebanon and occasional pinpoint attacks from Israel. A brutal civil war backed by NATO in Libya raged for 8 months and in 2014 began again with ISIS. Outright war also occurred in Russia’s invasion of Georgia in South Ossetia, which Russia still occupies. One may also point to several major civil wars in recent times, such as in Dafur, Indonesia, and currently in the Congo area and in diverse warring conflicts in African states. The so-called ‘war on terror’ is also being actively pursued and the US Congress has passed a law defining cyber attacks as war, giving the right to respond militarily. War in Syria has raged for yeas and is on-going today. Many other warring incursions and warlike conditions are found globally today. 

As to the Golden Age and transformation of human consciousness etc., it was heralded for decades by Sathya Sai Baba but, when failing to occur, he repeatedly promised a later date. In 1012 it was further postponed until the advent of Prema Sai, whenever that is supposed to take place (reports are conflicting).  One example:- Rita and Robert Bruce were told by SB about practically instant transformation of people’s consciousness after his 80th anniversary. But that anniversary was celebrated in 2006!  What kind of transformation is that? (see The Golden Age of Sai Baba)

There are any number of prophecies by Sathya Sai Baba which signally failed to come about – a list of links for those not acquainted with these gives the documentation and proofs in each case:- Sathya Sai Baba failed prophecy as the ‘great saviour of mankind’  – eg. Sai Baba being ‘king of the whole world’ from AD 2000, Muslims recognizing him 9 years before his passing, and the whole world visiting Prashanthi Nilayam. Sathya Sai Baba prophecies on his own death date – wrongly

Sathya Sai Baba as world saviour Well-known proclamations by Sathya Sai Baba are quoted on how he intends to save the planet and humanity… as well as some of his more incredible prophecies which have so far not come to pass. Prophecies about Sathya Sai Baba in the Suka Nadi etc. Each prophecy is considered for its likelihood of having been made and its validity Bogus Prophecies about Sathya Sai Baba Sai Baba soon to fly unaided in the sky?
Sathya Sai prophesied as ‘king of the world’ from 2000
Sai Baba prophecies he will lift “a whole range of mountains”!
Sai Baba prophecies – Edgar Cayce and Nostradamus

Prophecies about Sai-Avatar
Bogus Persian prophetic texts, and Nostradamus’ prophecies
The Pope to preach Sai Baba’s message?

Sathya Sai Baba was a miserly hoarder

Posted by robertpriddy on December 30, 2018

It was a major shock to Sai Baba’s devotees when he died in such a inglorious way long before he had predicted. A larger shock was to come when his private palace, the Yajur mandir, was opened and searched:-

Sai Baba ‘oracle guy’ Madhu of Muddenahalli gets new competition

Posted by robertpriddy on December 21, 2018

“One more allumni Ex-Sai Student turns into Baba. His name is Pritvi Raj Ex-Student of Mirpuri Musical College, Prasanthi Nilayam. Good thing about him is he didnt have any transistion plans, preparing the mind of people, testing of the waters, sans all these he straight away apperas on the screen with his orange attire.

Unlike Madhu who said he is hearing Swami, receiving instructions from Swami, this Prithvi Raj seems to be more straight forward. We all have seen how Madhu opened the empty car doors for Swami who couldnt be ever seen or heard by anybody other than himself. Foolishly lot of so called devotees fell for his trap . His crime was abetted by Mr. Nasimha Murthy and gang.

Madhusudan like anyother fraudster used Swami’s name to accumulate high end swanky cars travel in first class which is 5 times the economy price, uses helicopter as if he was born with platinum spoon and his and Narasimha Murthy’s desires to go in a fleet of cars, private choppers were fulfilled by exploting innocent devotees and their sentiments . We all have seen how from hearing and seeing Swami he progressed to being Swami himself.

The final nail in the coffin was announcement of sumeet tapoo when he declared this novermber 2018, that seeing Madhusudan is nothing but seeing Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba !!! To perpetrate the fraud Madhu also declared that Swami is going to be living “inside” him for the next 10 years. Just a recapitulation of the sequence

First it was Student to whom Swami is giving messages, Swami travels with him and listens to all his commands, asks for money and cars, demands helicopter rides and privated jets now Swami decides to stay inside Madhusudan and sit on the silver and golden throne also.

Endless fraud is continuing , first the argument was that Swami has left His body ten years earlier than what He has promised, So the “emergence” of subtle form and carry out the work. Next came a declaration that Prema Sai was born. Again now Swami has extended his Avatarhood till 103 years (93rd birthday plus 10 years).

Earlier Madhu was a communicator and now he has become Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai baba Himself. Even Swami might be baffled the way devotees are getting fooled!!!.

This new kid on the block is Prithvi Raj. Though he looks more genuine than Madhusudan we have to wait and watch.

It seems Swami also communicates with him. Swami has also asked him to start some schools, colleges and hospitals. Swami is also going to give the names of the donors and all those whose names are given by “Swami” , will have to construct schools and hospitals under the guidance of Prithvi Raj. All the donors and devotees of Muddenahalli please try out Prithvi Raj also. Who knows you may find him more genuine than Madhusudan Naidu. Singapore donors, you may also consider supporting Prithviraj and create more rift and confusion in Sai Mission which is your ambition.

Sai devotees we are in for another roller coaster ride. Few more colleges and hospitals will come under Pritivi raj and understand few more Babas are in pipeline and many ex-students of Swami are under training. . I think we are going to have an exciting 2019. Merry Christmas to you and may Swami bless us all.”

Sukshma Baba subsumed in Sathya Sai Baba?

Posted by robertpriddy on December 5, 2018

Or is Sathya subsumed by Sukshma (Madhusudana of Muddenahalli)? Is it ‘all one’ and the same? Or does it even matter? One fact is certain, the difference in intelligence about the physical world is nil… and the laughable confusion of the statement on the Bermuda Triangle and magnetism is a masterpiece of nonsense!

Surfing the waves of ignorance, this ‘magnetic’ tall tale by the new kid on the block is nearly as hilarious as Sathya Sai Baba’s contention he could not lift his feet due to his enormous personal magnetism, combined with the atraction of the Earth (whereas in reality, he was probably suffering from his crushed hips or some other old age handicap, neurological perhaps . Fact is, apart from paranormal and pseudoscientific ‘explanations’ for apparent anomalies in the loosely defined Bermuda Triangle, the only relation with magnetism is the following: compass problems are one of the cited phrases in many Triangle incidents. While some have theorized that unusual local magnetic anomalies may exist in the area, such anomalies have not been found. Compasses have natural magnetic variations in relation to the magnetic poles, a fact which navigators have known for centuries. Magnetic (compass) north and geographic (true) north are exactly the same only for a small number of places – for example, as of 2000, in the United States, only those places on a line running from Wisconsin to the Gulf of Mexico. But the public may not be as informed, and think there is something mysterious about a compass “changing” across an area as large as the Triangle, which it naturally will.
You are right, Robert: nonsensical drivel, devoid of the most basic knowledge of the natural world and basic forces governing our planet and universe. A good laugh, though… Wouldn’t it be even more fun if Suskhma Baba declared himself an alien instead of his drab incarnation stuff? Let us have a ‘true’ extraterrestrian for a change. It would so fit this fifties triangle enigma!
