Sathya Sai Baba Deceptions Exposed

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

Why Wasn’t Sathya Sai Baba Honest?

Posted by eileenweed on September 29, 2020

There is a revealing video on YouTube, showing how some of Sathya Sai Baba’s miracles were faked and how some teachings were plagiarised – reused though others said them.

Why did he pretend to be someone he wasn’t? Why wasn’t he honest about himself? There is a brilliant comment on the video by “Easwaran R. B.” that asks those thought-provoking questions!

VIDEO ON YOUTUBE:

Chaitanya Jyothi Museum at Puttaparthi, Part 5 Faked Miracles & Plagiarised Teachings
https://youtu.be/poL1SAnwj7c

Comment by Easwaran R. B.:

This is the first video that has beautifully and clearly exposed this Baba’s fake vibhuti “creation”!!! We knew from other videos that he brought with him a few pellets of vibhuti which he held in his left hand with which he used to hold the hem of his dress as he walked out for darshan area. He would collect a few envelops from devotees which would be held in his left hand. These envelops formed the cover as he transferred one pellet at a time under the covers from left to right hand and quickly transfered it between his first and middle fingers. Then he would hold his right hand fingers tightly together and waive, then crush the pellet with his thumb as he gave the vibhuti to devotees.

If Baba said I am going to do a magic and did this like PC Sorcar, I would never blame him. If he earned money by showing such magic and then used that money to build hospitals or do charity, I wouldn’t complain at all!! PC Sorcar the magician and his family also do lot of charity.

The problem with this Baba was that he cheated vulnerable devotees saying these were a display of his divine powers and it was believing in these fake claims that vulnerable people donated huge amounts of money to his Trust with which he did some charitable works.

Recently, during Covid-19 in Italy that took a heavy toll, many members of the famous Italian mafia helped corona patients with their ill-earned money!! Does it make the mafia a legal and ethical entity? Same with this fake baba. He gave very good speeches and advised his disciples to be honest, not to cheat, to serve others, etc. Question is was he honest?

Drug Supplies Available in Puttaparthi

Posted by eileenweed on September 7, 2020

According to a recent article, Puttaparthi is where ganja is grown and peddled, and from Puttaparthi, it is distributed to other areas.

It is no mystery that Puttaparthi is filled with anti-social elements! Sathya Sai Baba was unable to fulfill all his promises of “cleaning up India and then the world,” he was unable even to make the town of Puttaparthi spiritual and with sufficient water supply. He himself was involved in hoarding wealth and paying off politicians, authorities and even family members, to keep quiet about his illegal activities.

The article is here:

Shocking Revelations from Former Devote ‘MS’

Posted by robertpriddy on July 18, 2020

This email excerpt is from a former devotee, who heard firsthand from a number of people about their experiences of sexual abuse at the hands of sathya sai baba. Details of one experience is below.

From: m——-i <m——–i@z—–o.com>

Date: Mon, 23 Sep 2019 at 20:38

Subject: Sai Baba

To: d——–a <d——a@gmail.com>

First of all thank you so much that you give me the honour and opportunity to be able to write to you. And before I put my questions let me shortly introduce myself:

I am a social worker and live near Munich Germany.

My spiritual journey started like yours at a young age. At age 18 I joined an Indian Bengali Guru located in NYC (New York City) called Sri Chinmoy. At age 24 I came to Baba after I wasn’t able to go along the path of Sri Chinmoy anymore. Baba was very much healing me after the “stressful” path of Chinmoy. I liked Baba’s saying “Start early- drive slowly – reach safely”. It meant a lot to me after racing to heaven with Chinmoy.

I was very active in the Sai Center in Vienna in the 90’s. I loved it! In 2001 Baba personally arranged my marriage with my wife who was from Iran and who has been living with me for the past 19 years.

We both had incredible experiences with Baba and I felt his path was so grounded – a blending between spiritual aspiration and worldly life. We loved it. Recently again after many years I have become again very active in the Sai center.

About 1 year ago I had to leave the center.

About 4 months back I received a mail from the Sai Center leader. He wanted to know my opinion about one guru. One Sai devotee warned the Sai community about this guru. See more here about him: https://www.bhaktimarga.org/.

I wrote him back that I know personally Swami Vishwananda and I had no bad experiences. He wrote me back that he lived in Vishwananda’s ashram and that Vishwananda wanted him to massage his penis and more things.

I was shocked!!!

Later on my wife said that we should not forget what kind of rumours there are about Sathya Sai Baba. We watched again the movie “Secret Swami – BBC” after around 14 years, you may know about it (we know the family a bit). After watching this I realized that I had repressed some doubts about Baba. I started to investigate, and I asked a close friend of mine what he had experienced with Baba in the many interviews he had in the 90s (17 interviews) as a young guy.

He told me confidently that he had to preform several blow jobs on Baba’s “lingam”. I am very sure he did not lie to me; everything was very confident. He told me that Baba’s penis was half erected but did not lose sperm. He was not even completely negative about Baba. The only thing he really criticized was that Baba did it with people that didn’t like it.

I was so shocked and confused but also realized that many things I heard about firsthand many times, were most probably true! Before I believed that Baba was “healing” devotee by massaging and oiling their penises. And all the other allegations I thought were just fake rumours from bad people in the internet.

Baba’s “negative side”

As you most probably know: it is true that that Baba had sexual relations with innocent people against their will or in a manipulated state of mind.

Why baba had so much money, gold and silver in his room????

Did he give the order for murdering (the four boys) in 1993?

We know that many times he didn’t really materialize!!! (ok maybe to test people’s faith???)

Puttaparthi not even sure to become a district headquarter

Posted by robertpriddy on July 4, 2020

On June 23 of last year Hans News Service reported that ´the demand to carve out Hindupur as district capital gained momentum´. Reading the article, it was no done deal at all that Puttaparthi would win the prize of becoming the new central hub, as it faced stiff competition from Hindupur and Penukonda, to become the headquarters of the new Andhra Pradesh district! 

In typical Indian style, one year later, the matter still seems to be undecided. Nothing new under the sun. But safe to say, it does not bode well for Puttaparthi, birth place of the late Satyha Sai Baba, alleged king of kings, and its inherent power brokers. They so much want it to become a major religious and administrative centre, the more so since their late leader always confidently predicted it would gain world renown…But then, it is widely known how many of his tall claims did not pan out even when he was still ‘ in the flesh’. Why would it all of a sudden be any different now that he is dead nearly a decade? The decision will be based on ‘scientific parameters’, a local MP emphasized. God knows what will come of it…

 

Demand to Carve Out Hindupur District Gains Momentum
Hans News Service
23 Jun 2019 1:31 AM IST

Anantapur: In the context of likelihood of Hindupur emerging as district head-quarter for the proposed district to be carved out of Anantapur district, there are demands from other parts that Penukonda, the second historical capital of the once powerful Vijayanagar empire of Sri Krishna Devaraya, should be considered as its new district head quarter.

Besides, there has also been a long-time demand for making Puttaparthi as the head- quarters of the proposed second district. Already new district capital sadhana samithi’s have emerged in Penukonda and Puttaparthi represented by cross section of people.

Those advocating Penukonda as the new district head-quarter argue that Penukonda has emerged as an industrial corridor. It was also the ancient second capital of Vijayanagar empire. Kia Motors and its proposed ancillaries have the potential to transform the landscape of the historical town.

However, those demanding that Puttaparthi should be made as the new district head-quarter feel that Puttaparthi is well developed. The town has lot of infrastructure to host administrative buildings and quarters for officers. It has an airport and is also close to Bengaluru international airport. It has also close proximity to Anantapur which is an educational hub.
Hindupur of course has its own advantages as it is very close to Bengaluru international airport. Already the town has buildings to house government offices. Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy is planning to bifurcate every existing district into two districts taking parliamentary constituency as a yard-stick.

Even before the bifurcation of united AP, there had been demands for bifurcation of Anantapur into two districts – Anantapur and Hindupur. Similarly in Rayalaseema Tirupati in Chittoor district, Nandyala in Kurnool district, Rajampeta in Kadapa and Hindupur in Anantapur district are under consideration of the state government to make them as new districts.

Newly elected MP of Hindupuram Lok Sabha constituency Gorantla Madhav said to The Hans India that he welcomed the proposal of Hindupur emerging as another district. Anantapur, the present district head-quarters is very far away from Hindupur. By bifurcating the district, administration can be brought closer to the people and development prospects would be brighter, he said.

Already Hindupur MP constituency has emerged an industrial hub. Hindupur and Penukonda have already emerged as industrial zones. With many more industrial projects in the anvil, Hindupuram district will gain recognition as an industrial district. He said that expert committees would look into the demands for location of district head-quarter on the basis of scientific parameters, the MP added.

Insight into Working Conditions at Sri Sathya Sai General Hospital, Puttaparthi

Posted by robertpriddy on June 18, 2020

 

We received this report in October, 2019, from a source who for reasons of security, wishes to remain anonymous. It gives valuable insight into the inside world of working at the Puttaparthi General Hospital.

I met several times with a gynecologist at the Sathya Sai General Hospital during my recent trip to Puttaparthi (a friend of a friend who we socialized with). She has been there one year, NOT a devotee, and will soon leave. She completed her Masters a year ago and had very limited experience. She tried working in a corporate hospital in a big city but was concerned about their unethical practices such as filling quotas for unnecessary surgeries, so she left.

She gave me insights into the Puttaparthi hospital interview process.

Telephone Excerpt

Sai General Hospital (GH) Phone Interview Experience:

GH: Are you familiar with Puttaparthi and Sai Baba?

Doc: Yes, I came there as a small girl with my parents.

GH: How wonderful! Then you know about Sai Baba?

Doc: Not much, but yes, I know OF him.

GH: Excellent! When can you start working?

Doc: Uh, what is the salary?

GH: We can give you Rs 62,000 and a room. (Note: after joining, she discovered they had LIED – the salary was only Rs 50,000 and she had to pay for electricity and water bills.)

Doc: How is the room furnished?

GH: Furnished? You need it furnished? We can put a bed in there for you. (When she came, she saw they provided a rickety old hospital bed, labeled “Super Speciality Hospital”!)

Doc: What about a table and chair? A fridge? Cupboards for storage? AC? A vehicle?

GH: None of that will be provided.

IN COMPARISION

These are typical questions that other hospitals asked her during the interveriew experience:

— Where/When did you graduate?
— What were your marks?
— What experience do you have?
— What procedures are you comfortable doing on your own?
— What procedures do you need assistance with?
— We will provide you with Rs 200,000 monthly salary (2 lakhs), with regular increases.
— We will provide you with top class fully furnished accommodation, two bedroom apartment with nice beds, hot water heater, fridge, AC, company vehicle, and of course table, chairs, lots of storage space, etc.

Doctor’s Quarters Conditions

Note: She was lucky to get a room within a couple days of arriving. Other doctors who joined after her, had no room for over a month after they joined, and they had to pay for their own accommodation in Puttaparthi. They continually heard excuses of the room “getting ready”.

I visited her room, which is in the hospital compound (it was not there in the ‘old days,’ when doctors had rooms inside the ashram). There was only one small cupboard in the kitchen – no other storage place anywhere, not even in the bedroom and entry rooms. Utensils and other food items were piled up on the counters. The cover to the toilet seat was gone. It was so sweltering hot in Puttaparthi that she ended up buying her own AC for the room (money provided by her parents, as her salary was insufficient). The mattress on the bed were hard as rock, slightly lumpy, and could not be used – she had purchased her own mattress. There was water damage visible on the walls, probably mold too, and the paint was peeling off from top to bottom. She told me that she saw several accommodations provided to doctors in the Super Speciality hospital and they were WORSE than hers.

She was totally shocked that the General Hospital did not ask nor did they care about any medical experience she might have – they only cared about her knowing about Sai Baba and Puttaparthi!

She didn’t like working at Puttaparthi and did a few more phone interviews with other hospitals, and finally accepted a job offer at a small town in another state, for several times more money than she gets in Puttaparthi.

She said that the Parthi hospitals are understaffed and always trying to rope in people willing to work for cheap wages; however, most new non-devotee employees leave within a few months. She also told older staff who were ardent devotees, would tell her stories of Sai miracles and pressure her on a regular basis to become a devotee and to attend bhajans. Also, she pointed out the lack of sanitation there was a big issue. For example, being free, she said, why of course needles were reused multiple times on multiple patients!

Some of the pictures of the doctor’s room are attached. In India, doctors are treated like VIPs with luxury accommodation when they join a hospital to work in. The doc lady was shocked when she saw what they provided for her!

The decline of The “God Avatar’s” accommodation facilities and unsanitary conditions are telling signs of the transitory nature of pretended divinity and fame. No wonder the gynecologist left asap!

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.

See the article HERE.

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

Hans News Service
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!

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.
