Sathya Sai Baba Deceptions Exposed

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

Sai Baba dropped Vibuthi Pellet during darshan!

Posted by robertpriddy on May 23, 2018

Numerous testimonies that Baba dropped vibuthi pellets in front of former devotees, and also that he had, in the private interview room, a vibuthi pellet ‘machine’ which compressed the powder with water. Previous photographic or video evidence of pellets (between his fingers etc.) were sparse and not so clear. The video which has emerged on YouTube removes all possible doubt that he crushed pre-prepared pellets and did not materialise those.

To view a short clip with the important footage, go to https://www.dropbox.com/s/ain9opy4r1nzssi/Vibuti%20pellet%20drop.mov?dl=0 It looks as thought, having dropped the vibuti pellet, Baba quickly drops letters as well so a lady picks it all up (seems to be aware of the situation). Baba looks worried and then tried to avert people’s attention.

Sathya Sai Baba drops Vibuti Pellet at darshan. Baba drops the pellet and its fall is very clearly visible. This occurs at 1.03 secs. into the video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBilntPmlqE&feature=share

Chris Dokter, professional academic and Baba dissident

Posted by robertpriddy on May 15, 2018

Chris Dokter is a fellow academic and educator. Mr. Dokter is an alumnus of the University of Groningen, an institute founded in 1614, with a steady top 100 world ranking (see here). He graduated with honours in clinical psychology, with minors in labour and organizational psychology. After graduating he went on to become a licensed health psychologist and psychotherapist (holding five specialties: group psychology and therapy, behavioral therapy, client centered therapy, trauma and EMDR therapy, and relation therapy), foregoing a Ph.D position. Alongside his therapeutic work, he fore fronted equal rights for students and graduates with physical and mental handicaps, and was appointed trainer and supervisor in postgraduate schooling. For ten years, he was also columnist for a nationwide mental health magazine.

Chris, August 1981, Puttaparthi

As a young man, at the end of the seventies, early eighties, when he suddenly got so ill he could not prolong his erstwhile studies (Pedagogics & Education), he became heavily involved in the budding Sathya Sai Baba phenomenon and Organization. He was instrumental in helping shape the first statutes, and subsequently translated several books on the subject of ‘the man of miracles’ into Dutch (e.g. the Howard Murphet classic Sai Baba: Man of Miracles and the equally (in)famous Samuel Sandweiss one: Sai Baba, the Holy Man… and the Psychiatrist). Soon after his interest was aroused, he visited India for months at a time in 1981, 1983, 1985, and lastly in 1990, attracting special attention from the godman and gaining multiple group and 2 private interviews, plus several materializations of vibhuti. After his first visit, he toured his home country with slide shows and talks about his special experiences, which in turn led him to lead groups of country men and women on organized tours to Brindavan and Puttaparthi.

When in 1992, the idea was launched to go and make a film about this enigmatic man, a crew of filmmakers, cameramen and scientists under the egis of Dutch national television (IKON), Mr. Dokter was first asked by the overall, veteran director Philip Engelen (died 2010) to translate the script, ‘Sathya Sai Baba Als in een Spiegel’ into English and, after completion, lending his voice to the international version (‘Sathya Sai Baba, As in a mirror darkly’)

Weirdly enough, the film, which sparked heated debate in the Netherlands, appeared worldwide almost simultaneous to the infamous murders of 4 people in Sai Baba’s quarters, the latter fully unbeknownst to the general public and even longstanding devotees. By then, Chris had long since distanced himself from the organization, both national and international, which he found far too rigid, and led more and more by quite dictatorial national and European regional coordinators, headed by an overly power-hungry Central Committee. Also, from 1985 onwards, he had more and more serious doubts about the alleged avataric quality of Sathya Sai Baba, and his promises. In 1997, he made his last appearance on Dutch TV as a devotee, in a program called ‘There is more between heaven and earth’, after which he distanced himself completely from these activities. It was not until 2010 that his interest re-emerged, quite by chance. Among other things, he started a blog against the man and his movement, feeling an obligation to balance his previous proselytizing, however earnest, by making known his current view on Sathya Sai Baba and his movement, aiding in some small measure to the body of work, done mainly online by whistleblowers and ex-followers, not least many brave young men who testified about sex abuses by Sai Baba.

Among the numerous former devotees who became critics are David Bailey, Barry Pittard, Brian Steel, Eileen Weed  Sergei Badaev, Conny Larsson, and myself.

In his article ‘A Trip down Memory Lane’, Chris Dokter wrote:- “Because of the ever-increasing unavailability of direct contact with Sathya Sai Baba over the previous decades, which was the inevitable result of the sheer increase in numbers of visitors to the ashram and the very limited amount of time the master provided for interaction with them (twice a day for maybe twenty minutes darshan, plus the rare interview, accosted to the ‘happy’ few), large groups of devotees resorted more and more to indirect ‘proof’, whether through prayer, dreams, premonitions, contact with VIP-devotee-clearvoyants like Phyllis Krystal, and other, sometimes all-too-primitive supposed channelers and channeling of the master…Being unavailable is one of the devices cult leaders use in order to gain an ever-increasing aura among their believers, by the way. Especially when their followers are cooped up in primitive dwellings, and are deprived of contact with the outside world their whole day revolves around the master. Not seeing him, not being able to come into close, personal contact with him, makes people anxious, which in turn serves as an incentive to listen to tall tales and boosting the master’s omnipotence through any number of stories heard through the grapevine. It also hides the master quite effectively from any altogether too inquisitive a view from people who are a bit more sceptical.

If a master at all, Sathya Sai Baba certainly was one in this respect! He pulled off the most unlikely feat: not letting himself get caught for the massive fraud, deception and abuse he was involved in during sixty odd years. Instead, he managed to achieve an enormous following and influence the world over, culminating in a state funeral, with full honours, and very few awkward questions asked even after his demise.”
He has posted numerous blogs on his WordPress site entitled ‘Mind your Mind’ Among his most informative blogs he posted are the following:-

Warning from Sai Surya

Posted by robertpriddy on May 11, 2018

The following warning from the self-designated virtual mouthpiece of the Muddenahalli gang of the oracle ‘boy’ Sukshma Baba shines forth as an especially vapid example… weaker than diluted water:-

Samastha Loka132 2-5-18 Warning
Sai Ram  We just learned that the period leading up until the end of July 2018 will be extremely critical for world peace. It can go either way. There are no details at the moment.
Any thing can happen.

Then comes the antidote:
“it is time stop watching television, movies, music videos, reading newspapers and magazines, gossiping,chatting on social media AND use these times for chanting. You must take the crises that the whole world is facing as serious. It will affect you wherever you live.
It may be too late when there is no food to eat, when you are in the middle of a hurricane or cyclone, your building is shaking, disease is spreading around you. Anything can happen but why take the chance. Remember that the new age is in the process of being born. Labor pains are to be expected The New Age is wonderful beyond description.”

All empty claims, and some! Chanting as the answer to all world problems is not even hilarious, it is downright moronic. How many people have chanted how much since the world began, and all the problems and threats to security and are much more dire! The best position for chanting is illustrated:-below:-

Tulasi Srinivas ‘Winged Faith’ reviewed

Posted by robertpriddy on May 6, 2018

Review of “Winged Faith: Rethinking Globalization and Religious Pluralism through the Sathya Sai Movement” (Columbia University Press, 2010).

This book attempts to present what one would expect from a serious researcher, an independent and  balanced view of the matter. In this respect, Srinivas has made a greater attempt to include the sphere of facts and discussions that many other books and articles have avoided. Her book purposely avoids discussion of the true nature of Sai Baba, his pick-and-mix doctrines, vast claims of omniscience, omnipotence and omnipresence, creator of the universe and much. much more that discredits him in the eyes of any reasonable person who is not brought up within a  Hindu mythological religion and ‘spirituality’ . Nor does she want to investigate the many cultish aspects of his organization, educational institutions and ashrams. She has at least taken up the major issues of some of the infamous murders in Sai Baba’s rooms and allegations of sexual abuse from young men all around the world, if only sketchily. Under typical academic and publishing restraints, however, Srinivas has erred rather on the side of undue caution about these two major crises for Sathya Sai Baba’s reputation and import in spiritual matters. I had an extended communication with her, helping her to penetrate the movement and correcting certain errors she made (though she has still made a number of serious factual blunders). However, she stated her aim with her work to me as follows:-

“I merely intended to note what devotees, ordinary people, and former devotees say about the Movement, Sai Baba himself, and the Organization and what happens within it. So it is much more about representation, perception and dialogue. While “facts” do weave in and out of the narrative, they have to, in my opinion, for validity of some of the representation, my search is much more about strands of knowledge and interpretation, which in most cases, as you know better than I do, is not about proving anything concrete.”

I must remark, however, that the work has a definite tendency towards explaining away conflicts of opinion, especially between those accusing Sai Baba of serious sexual abuse and those who believe it to be an ancient Indian method of sexual healing. She also virtually defends – on the basis of a (convenient) view of spirituality as a wholly private affair – the secrecy and silence of devotees who would not tell her anything she wanted to know and who almost entirely preferred not to speak about the sexual and murder issues. Her subject matter originally came to her through friends who were Sai devotees and she was clearly attracted by the promise of a major spiritual renewal that many people – including myself – thought he represented. She admits of being naive at the outset of her researches in that she did not realize the complex nature of the movement – the cult of secrecy, hierarchy and tensions within it, especially within the institutions – the Sai Organization, the Sai Central Trust and other bodies. Though she has been given much information from Sai movement insiders – including some about me – she failed signally to grasp the pernicious cultic and deceptive nature of Sai Baba and his minions. Though she referred to me and my writings in an acceptable enough manner, she ignored a great deal of the most important facts exposed by me and others I have reported on. She quotes the more reasonable things written, for example, by Ram Das , but leaves out his horrific and extensive justifications of direct sexual abuse by the Avatar for ‘karmic reasons’ etc. This kind of omission is typical of almost all she touched on

Unlike her, I am a dissident who sacrificed nearly two decades of my life to working for Sathya Sai Baba and Co., and – also unlike her – I have gone beyond academic appeasement of conflicting parties and become an activist with a clear duty to refute my former well-intended positive writings Therefore I disregarded the norms of not saying what one knows – common to those with the academic herd mentality of playing very safe – speaking my mind clearly and frankly and not opting for timidity towards one’s academic peers or betters. An amoral attitude under cover of a purely academic observer interest I consider simply morally wrong, as it always involves denial of key subject matter. Note further that, despite Srinivas’ hasty interview in the media rather over-endorsing the man and his movement after his controversial illness and death, Srinivas’ appreciation of the whole history shows itself as entirely out-dated.

Considering the subsequent consignment of Sai Baba as if to Coventry in the world and much of the Indian press, and his ignominious death under suspicious cover-up circumstances  it is now much more a case of ‘Broken Wings and Mistrust’ than ‘Winged Faith’. All the deceptions involving the Central Trust exposed by the Indian media put matters in a far different light to the formerly unchallenged propaganda by his minions when we learned of the later of hoarding of private wealth on a huge scale by Sai Baba when his apartments were opened, the bitter battles over ‘succession’ and the huge wealth involved, the police investigations of the secreting of massive funds from Puttaparthi in vans and buses where members of the supposedly impeccable Trust were involved, and public allegations that the Sai Trust murdered Sathya Sai Baba. Tulasi Srinivas evidently did not make a very serious study of the infamous murders incident in Sathya Sai Baba’s apartment in 1993 (as I have done), though she chose to present her own view of the matter, clearly only a personal and poorly documented opinion based on a narrow segment of the available materials. She did not, however, have access to the testimony of the eyewitness dissident, Eileen Weed, who observed from the apartment of Sai Baba’s elder sister and learned of the whole dirty affair and the massive bribes paid out directly afterwards by Sai Baba.

<span style="font-size:14pt;font-family:Arial;color:#800080for a start, she writes:- “They knifed Mr. Radhakrishnan who was in a room nearby, as well as another close devotee, Mr. Mahajan (who survived) and ran to an inner room and bolted themselves in.” Nothing could be clearer from the documents that Mahajan did NOT survive the attack, so Srinivas made a major and revealing error, one of many similar in her book. Tulias Srinivas does not consider the massed evidence collected by the national award-winning sceptic, Basava Premanand, such as in his very voluminous book ‘Murders in Sai Baba’s Bedroom’, nor his other clarificatory writings. She does not refer to what was revealed to me by V.K. Narasimhan, the editor of Sai Babas’s journal and a very close servitor about the role of Sai Baba’s younger brother (Janakiramiah) in causing and endorsing the police executions, not of his complicity with the then Indian Home Minister (S.B. Chavan) nor take any notice of his frenetic activities in dealing with the issue – frequent flights to Sai Baba to confer with him, as recorded throughout the Indian press in dozens of articles (see some here – India’s Home Minister could not avoid investigation by CBI, but quashed it laterThe quashing of the entire case, after maximum confusion had been created by the involved parties, including Sai Baba himself who was never questioned. Nor does she address Sai Baba’s own inconsistencies and rumour-spreading in his subsequent discourse some weeks later. See also this review:-

Asaram Bapu & Sathya Sai Baba – birds of a feather

Posted by robertpriddy on May 4, 2018

This visit to Sathya Sai Baba by Asaram Bapu underlined their mutual endorsement

Asaram Bapu, now finally convicted after years in prison during which witnesses were murdered and victims harassed while the indecisive got nowhere. It is worth noting that Asaram was close to another infamous sexual abuser, namely Sathya Sai Baba, who India’s government declared was a ‘national treasure’ and covered-up all his many crimes, especially countless sexual assaults, which the present government still deny and cover up for reasons best known to themselves. Asaram is shown while visiting Prashanthi Nilayam in 2004 beside Sai Baba, where they gave speeches extolling each other publicly!

Ex-Sai Devotee spoke out about his Sai Baba interview

Posted by robertpriddy on May 3, 2018

ULLRICH   ZIMMERMANN’S   UNDISPUTED  TESTIMONY

A series of film interviews with this young man as partly transcribed below described the excitement of a first interview with Sai Baba which many others have described. Only the private interview in a closed room with him took on a most unwanted aspect.

In three lengthy on-line TV interviews (at the US portal blip.tv.com, since defunct) the former Sai Baba follower, Ullrich Zimmermann, gave a thorough description of his experiences with Sathya Sai Baba. This delivers a major blow to any wishful doubts entertained by the faithful that Sathya Sai Baba practices sex on male devotees.Ullrich’s frank and detailed account of his experiences and his interpretations of them may well be of help to some of the many others who (as he also asserts) have been through similar sexual experiences with Sathya Sai Baba, whether of lesser or greater degree.
There is a transcript of the most revealing part two where he tells of the private interview and Sai Baba’s sexual acts. Then a summary plus partial transcript of part three, where he reflects back on his experiences and the Sathya Sai cult .
The full-length videos were posted by blip.tv but are no longer available there (see wayback machine scans Part One (introductory) – Part Two (the main account of sex etc.) – Part Three (reflections). The image below is copied from blip.tv’s web site .
Both his common sense and his more esoteric musings may well be helpful. He raises the question whether this oral sex was sexual abuse or a ‘divine blessing’, and – when this interview was made all of seven years ago, he did not then regard it as sexual abuse. However, the factual description he gave was of oral sex imposed on him virtually against his will and in his very first meeting with Sai Baba who he believed and trusted in fully as being God. Those of similar faith – such as his mother also was – tend to accept the idea that it was a divine blessing (unless – as most do – they deny it can ever take place). Many other young men from across the world have already independently testified to the same kind of sexual abuses by Sathya Sai Baba through many years (see under ‘Witnesses’ on ExBaba.com). None of them stated they regard the sexual acts as a ‘divine blessing’.Whatever ‘spiritual’ interpretations some devotees may choose to apply here, ExBaba’s campaign to show that Sai Baba does indeed have sexual relations with young men is yet again vindicated. In the interests of truth and the protection of the innocent, former devotees and others around the world have worked – against cover-up and many obstacles – to expose the truth about Sai Baba’s most widely alleged molesting of young males.

Ullrich’s natural honesty is unmistakable as he tells of his whole Sai Baba experience – including the difficult and sensitive subject of oral sex. He, like others who have come forward, cannot be praised sufficiently for his bravery and adherence to truth and decency. As his interviewer says, these revelations will come as a major shock to those Sai devotees who watch the video, not least because of the openness and entirely unassuming character of Ullrich in his self-evaluations and his fearless answers to questions put to him.
Ullrich Zimmermann points out that there is a big difference between a ‘guru’ and a ‘teacher’ – where gurus disempower their followers and rob them of freedom, teachers (as to spirituality) always leave those who seek their advice to make up their own minds and achieve their own way in life. Ullrich followed Sai Baba as a guru, but is now very clear that he no longer wants Sai Baba or any other guru, even though there may have been some temporary benefits from such devotion.

In the first part of this series, Ullrich Zimmermann tells how he came to Sathya Sai Baba and got his first interview. This is of more interest to those who have not been to the ashram. For those who have direct experience of Sathya Sai Baba through personal contact, devotion or in trying to practice his teachings, the first interview will seem too drawn out (playing time up to 1 hour). Ullrich gives a detailed description of how he – and many others no doubt – feel and experience visiting thge ashrams and Sai Baba so as to bring out the way in which – as a keen devotee – he was already largely indoctrinated already, and in a state of nervous expectation etc. He also shows how easily he then believed many things – was indoctrinated like most other devotees – before he even met Sai Baba. However, the conclusions he arrived at – some considerable time after his two sexual contacts – shows a quite other and much more critical perspective (stated in Part Three) .
In Part Two of the series (playing time over 30 mins), Ullrich tells – with a very natural frankness and believability – of his first experiences with Sai Baba in the inner interview room in which he was induced to engage in oral sex (fellatio) on Sai Baba on two occasions, though he was never gay and says he had always felt the idea of being forced into gay sex “the ultimate horror”. Ullrich says he did not feel sexually abused because he had total faith in Sai Baba (as God Incarnate) and trusted he would always do what was best for him. So he went along with the ‘wishes he couldn’t refuse’. Whether this was a ‘divine blessing’ or merely sexual abuse for Sai Baba’s own satisfaction is for readers and the world at large to judge. Ullrich attributes the uplift of spirits some time after it was over to some kind of Tantric energy transmission. However, other explanations do come easily to mind – such as the release of great psychological tensions engendered throughout and the well-known ‘divine salvation’ enthusiasm and the ensuing ‘spiritual honeymoon’ effect, which Sai followers get after achieving an interview so much yearned for and for so long (but which is a temporary phase, as Ullrich honestly tells, lasting only for some weeks in his case).

Not surprisingly, Ullrich was often visibly uncomfortable while relating about this with hesitations and pauses – and some confusion still as to how to understand it all. However, he also seems quite convinced about it having had a spiritual aspect. It is noteworthy that Ullrich tells how the second time Sai Baba got him to suck his penis, he stopped after a short while because he felt too awkward. While withdrawing he noticed some sudden light effect coming from Sai Baba’s penis. This seems to be a main reason why Ullrich believes there was some kind of Tantric transfer involved. The matter remains impenetrable, for it could also have been caused by the tension created by the nervously anticipated awkward situation, affecting his eyes, or possibly having some other psycho-physical cause.

Since the live video interview is very long, transcripts of portions of some of Ullrich’s statements – which are particularly important from the viewpoint of the exposé of Sai Baba’s secret and controversial doings – are given here verbatim, and without comments. They are taken out of the tediously long and involved context, which is nevertheless important for better understanding his standpoint in those interviews, (a full transcript may be added here later). He claims that his relation to Sai Baba brought about a change in somehow ‘opening up’ his personality. In some contrast to this assertion, he also says that it did not make him more genuinely spiritually liberated or give any ‘God-realisation’. He no longer believes Sai Baba can do this. Ullrich’s views may well have changed since he made the recording in 2000.
 Ullrich Zimmermann (speaking about Sai Baba in the private interview room):

“So when he says that ‘always thinking about girls’ and I know and I don’t want to… … he says “Oh. Don’t worry” … … and he materialises an oil and he lifts up my T-shirt and he puts that here.” (he describes the places as “on the kundalini line”).Then he kissed me on my mouth…
“It was awkward… and it was also not disgusting.”

“He is looking at me and I know – knew – in my mind that he wanted me to suck his penis.” “and he took my hand… … to his genitals and it felt through the robe like a female with hair – there was no penis and he took my hand again and it was the male and ‘Suck finger, suck male’…”

So he pushes me down, lifts up his robe…” “His penis is… ….like from a child, no hair, small.” “And I took his penis in my mouth… …it was erect…. I had it in my mouth for a while and it was not like doing bliss, it was not like doing a big job or so – at least there was some movement but it was not like a big sexual act or so, and I didn’t feel ejaculation in my mouth… can’t give the time to the minute, maybe one and a half…”

Asked by his interviewer whether Sai Baba ejaculated, Ullrich replied: “I didn’t feel that in my mouth. If you had asked me then I would have said ‘no’ but… I think he did.” “… really very quick. Robe up and the interview was over.”
Interviewer: “Well, did you tell anyone about this, your mother?”
Ullrich: Yes. I did. .. I was in the taxi back to Bangalore… she had also heard rumours and asked me what happened but she saw me in this happy state and so I told her.. I mean she didn’t experience… view that as abuse at all. She’s a Sai Baba follower and she trusts. And of course, having such an experience I wanted to have answers. After that, talking to other people who are living in the ashram and who are there for years with my knowledge and know about these things to happen anyway – it’s happening on a really big scale.”

Interviewer: I mean, it happens every day with some – or – he has a lot of followers so he’s always doing interviews and…
Ullrich: Yeah, but I only say my experience and that is I know – I know one person in eye-to-eye who has had that happen to him, also a young German, and I talked to another person who knew a lot of other people – I mean, I talked to a lot of people…
Interviewer: But they also thought it was a good experience, or some of them were angry?
Ullrich: They were not in anger. I mean, they’re still there. (editor’s note: i.e. in year 2000) They are just confused and for some of them it presses the button more than others but for me the bottom line was what I got, it is white Tantra.

See the comments on how the news of such things affected the followers in UK in 2000 after the David Bailey news first broke there as written by the former President of the UK Organization and Central Coordinator for UK and Ireland.

PART 3 – SUMMARY-CUM-TRANSCRIPT OF THE INTERVIEW WITH ULLRICH ZIMMERMANN

bliptv2
Editor’s note: So that Ullrich’s words come across as clearly as possible, the text is partly summarized to exclude asides, verbal stumbles and some awkward phrasing in English etc., but with all his important statements reproduced verbatim within apostrophes.

Ullrich speaks firstly about the search for solutions to his spiritual desire, having known all the time that “it is something in me and not something delivered by the Church and the standard settings.”
Having rejected Sai Baba as a guru (already 7 years ago) he says that he knows “the difference between a truthful teacher and guru… The useful energy I had when I started my path, for example with Sathya Sai Baba… being lifted up but being only lifted up… and then from my sincere perspective on what is happening down there… to be empowered to empower him.”
Ullrich speaks about playing one’s part as a devotee, which requires “total focus on his person” which involves obtaining some power from him and being changed as Ullrich reports he was but, as he then says: “I also know… I was hooked with Sai baba, there was no freedom whatsoever, there was no acknowledgment of me – (no) giving the knowledge that I am actually God… that everything that is coming out of me I can generate.” Sai Baba “in no way delivered how you can actually implement that in your life.”

“What I wanted was a true spiritual change, otherwise I would never have done that. That was the reason I went there, that was the reason I had the physical experience with him I did have. And there was a change but it was, for me, confusing.”
Ullrich thought that: “If he has an interest in you, if you are a potential powerful battery… then you will get something, o.k.? But you won’t get what you are going for… your major craving for God.”
Ullrich believes instead: “You can only do it yourself, by hard work, by being impeccable in every life situation. And you can do that within the Sai Baba setting and some people do that, but you are always utterly connected to Sai Baba.”
Ullrich insists that it is “not about getting personal liberation… it is about you being part of an energy game, being abused – however you put it – for me, because I really don’t know what Sai Baba is, but he is certainly not somebody who comes from his heart. He’s somebody who is coming from a power, and it is all about power. It is not about you being really empowered, it is about you being empowered to be a powerful feeder.”
Therefore, Ullrich says: “You in your everyday life are the creator of your own reality… …ninety-nine per cent that has to come from me. I made this video … to make clear that you don’t gain that inner spiritual connection with Sai Baba – or any guru for that matter.”
Ullrich says he doesn’t believe that Sai Baba was so low as to do the sex only for his own satisfaction. Alan Steinfeld comments:”He could still be that low”. Ullrich says “O.K., well, maybe he is, but that is not my conception of it.” Then also “It’s all about power and I do see that very, very clearly.”
Ullrich reports that his spiritual teacher (Ramtha) told him twice, “You will teach Sai Baba a lesson.” Ullrich continues: “I do this interview now because I think it might help people… it is probably a way to teach Sai Baba a lesson.”
“Also, the people I know who are really followers… these are powerless people” and he holds that to keep them powerless as Sai Baba does is “to have one’s own agenda, to have an ulterior motive, not truthful.”
Ullrich: “Yes. My understanding of how energy works… a very powerful thing he set forth there. I haven’t been there for eight years or something but I talk to people who were there and they say he is getting more and more tired – having no joy in doing it, I experienced this too when I was there.”

Ullrich also saw “he had nothing to help all these people. Even though Sai Baba picks out people… it is because they are for his agenda. That is also his undoing in himself. I feel sorry for him”Alan Steinfeld: Well, what you’re saying then… even though you can materialize, appear in people… miracles, it doesn’t mean you’re spiritually evolved?”

Ullrich: “It’s just black magic, O.K.? That’s just knowledge about certain laws, the ability to gain them. And that’s very common in India, there are really unevolved beings that have a certain ability of defying what we consider to be firm, physical laws. And these physical laws are shattered, the threshold from Newton’s physics to quantum physics… if you go deeper into any subject.Summing up, Ullrich says of Sai Baba: “That is not a spiritual path… claiming to be a spiritual leader I would assume he is getting a good livelihood. He helps lots of people but there’s an agenda with it. They’re waiting to be taken out, and they’re really good people, people with integrity (Alan comments:’Sincere seekers!’). It’s like people waiting for the end of the world and thinking you will be picked up by an UFO.”

Note that the International Chairman of the Sathya Sai Organization, Dr. M. Goldstein (see ‘The Secret Swami’), denied that any sexual incidents with Sai Baba had ever taken place. This denial was again seen for what it was, a sheer and – for a doctor pretending expertise in sexual abuse – a despicable cover-up of facts. There is full proof that these abuses were known to Goldstein and many other top leaders, not least from Dr. Hislop, whose infamous circular letters to US organization leaders tried to cover up the same kind of allegations in the early 1980s. Dr. G. Venkarataman, the second-in-command of the cover-up by the Prashanthi Council whose closeness to Sai Baba and position of authority gave him every opportunity to check out the facts about Sai Baba’s large-scale homosexual activities that Ullrich [and others] say were well-known to many ashram residents.

In 2001, Prashant Kumar acting for Hari Sampath brought a petition up in the Supreme Court entitled ‘Formal Criminal complaint against Sathya Sai Baba’ (http://www.saibaba-x.org.uk/9/CBI-case-Sampath.html) The judge gave the petitioner lawyer the run around, repeatedly told the lawyers to take it to the Andhra High Court. The Judge in the AP court was a devotee and former driver of Sai Bab, which meant it would get nowhere. Judge Lahot dismissed the petition. The Supreme Court wilfully destroyed the document (to avoid foreign embassies from obtaining the proof)  yet a genuine copy was retrieved from the defence attorney, famous lawyer Kamini Jaiswal (see http://www.saibaba-x.org.uk/14/court.html)

That Sai Baba escaped conviction was due to the impossibility of charging him formally elsewhere than in India, and there he has virtual control of the High Court of Andhra Pradesh and the Supreme Court of India through his devotees who presided over them (led by The former Chief Justice of India, P.N. Bhagwati who was a long-standing worshipper of Baba and a Board member of his Central Trust), fully backed by the Indian PM, President and Home Minister, all his devotes! His totally unaccountable Sathya Sai Organization could not be sued in the US, not being registered as an organization (instead it uses a bookshop as a front for its activities).

My trustworthy inside source on Sathya Sai Baba

Posted by robertpriddy on April 30, 2018

One of my best friends among all Indians and my closest confidante among all resident staff when I was a devotee of Sai Baba was V.K. Narasimhan, who was – for most of his journalistic life – the assistant editor of The Hindu. After an illustrious career in journalist in which he alone among journalists bravely confronted Indira Gandhi over her ‘Emergency’  – culminating as Editor-in-Chief of the Indian Express Group – he followed his devotee wife to Sai Baba’s ashram, where they settled. He felt that Sai Baba’s social works were one of the best things in Andhra Pradesh at the time, since he was extremely cynical about the government and their achievements – even the will to improve the lot of anyone but their own class or caste. He did not believe Sathya Sai Baba was omniscient, omnipotent or omnipresent… nor did he believe in the miracles or the many alleged healings by Sai Baba (he was himself let down badly and lost an eye despite SB applying vibuti etc.) All this I have described at length, and I have scanned and posted many excerpts from the daily diaries I wrote during my over 1 1/2 years in the ashrams, especially my conversations with Narasimhan

It was also VKN, as he was widely known, who administered the felling blow to my faith in Sai Baba by telling me in strict confidence and a lowered voice of SB’s younger brother’s blackmailing of the police and Sai Baba’s own covered-up involvement in those events. “They did a terrible thing…” was his judgement, and the Home Minister S.B. Chavan laughed together with Sai Baba’s younger brother – a multi-millionaire property speculator and Puttaparti brother owner Janaki Ramiah – commenting “Dead men tell no tales!” Such was my faith that, even then, it took me four years to deal with the information properly and rid myself about the many confusions about Sai Baba which naturally arise before one takes the bull by the horns and allows oneself to think seriously and critically… which eventually led me to investigate the sex abuse claims. This led to utter conviction that at least a majority of the testimonies were true… little though I wished for that outcome! Knowing the details of how SB was a willing accomplice to murder and its cover-up, along with Sathya Sai Central Trust, other ashram officials and – not least – the Home Minister S.B. Chavan and then-Prime Minister Narasimha Rao, I had after VKN had safely departed this life to shoulder the heavy burden of telling the public what I knew.

Isaac Tigrett, deranged sybarite, still partying

Posted by robertpriddy on April 28, 2018

Is that a beer, Isaac?

The deluded ex-millionaire Sathya Sai Baba devotee (with black shades) who donated the Puttaparthi Super-Specialty Hospital from funds made from beef dinners and alcohol at the Hard Rock Cafe complex, which he no longer owns. 

Tigrett trying to influence the Clintons October 26, 2016 –  from the article by David and Jennie Cornsweet: 1. Oracle boy is no longer willing to waste his time seeing people who will not cough up money and resources to further his fame. 2. The Cornsweet couple (David & Jennie) claim to have met with the Clintons

Isaac Tigrett on the go again July 20, 2016  Tigrett busy touring all over the world, claiming a prestigious place on the stage with ‘oracle boy’ Madhusudhana Naidu, the controversial self-proclaimed spokesman for ‘subtle sai baba’ (you have to use your imagination to believe there is an invisible baba).

Discredited fantasist Isaac Tigrett in India again October 29, 2014 Tigrett is a very curious self-contradictory mix of worldliness and so-called ‘spirituality’, having run huge beef burger joints, promoted with the slogan ‘Love All, Serve All’ copied from the strictly vegetarian Sai Baba in cynical commercialism disregarding the Hindu sanctity of cows.

Tigrett’s ludicrous fantasies about Sai Baba’s ‘return in subtle body’ June 11, 2014 –  a self-important self-appointed Sai Baba spokesman and right hand fantast who lost all credibility and retreated more and more from reality into a land of subjective dreams and imaginings that  ‘Swami’s subtle body’ reappeared in Sukshma Baba in Kodaikanal.

Isaac Tigrett is in the Building  October 21, 2012 –  What with his claims to be Sai Baba’s living will, and his vast plans for a spiritual centre in the forests of Coorg (which he cooked up together with the ailing and failing Sai Baba in his senility, there is evidently much interest among his cult survivors in Isaac Tigrett.

Asaram Bapu finally convicted to life imprisonment

Posted by robertpriddy on April 25, 2018

Click to go to source

Asaram was arrested in 2013 after a case of sexual assault was filed against him by two of his followers, who alleged that he had assaulted their daughter. Police say that the couple, who had sent the girl to one of his ashrams for spiritual lessons, were summoned to see her as she was “under the influence of some supernatural ghostly powers”. They were then told to take their daughter to Jodhpur to meet the guru.

The family reached the Jodhpur ashram on 14 August. The following night, Asaram called the victim to his room on the pretext of “curing” her. He then raped the victim while her parents waited outside chanting his prayers, police say. Police say the guru forced the victim to perform sexual acts on him and threatened to murder her family if she spoke about the incident. The victim told her parents what had happened the following day. They tried to confront Asaram, but were refused entry to his ashrams.

Puttaparthi: severe slump for businesses

Posted by robertpriddy on March 24, 2018

The well-known and successful garment outlet, ‘Shilparamam’ is losing over a million rupees every year in Puttaparthi due to lack of sales. We can safely assume that this is the norm in the ghost town of the dead narcissist pedophile. Recently another national outlet, ‘FabIndia’ was opened in Puttaparthi. One can only assume the company did not do any market research whatsoever, on the fate of most other Puttaparthi businesses. The company owners must have visions of profits making them into millionaires but sadly, they will most likely suffer dire debts in the future.

Madhusudan, the ‘oracle boy’ is now Sathya Sai Baba plus Prema Sai?

Posted by robertpriddy on March 9, 2018

All pretence that Sukshma Baba (former Sai student Madhusudan) is merely an instrument or ‘oracle boy’ is finally dropped. He had reinvented himself as Sathya Sai Baba, no less, who has read the text below and approved it! At the same time he is pretending he is Prema Sai Baba. Two for the price of one!

But watch out, it sounds as if this oracle boy aka Sathya Sai Baba/Prema Sai is desperate and is ready to destroy cities. (God will do anything to purify!). And don’t forget to give up newspapers… you’ve been warned! He obviously is not into catching bees with honey, but tries poison instead! The degree of cynicism and ill will behind his (fanciful and wholly unbelievable) warnings is stunning, quite apart from the megalomania which has overtaken him. One can certainly believe the exposure of him by a former ‘brother of his true nature as a remorseless self-interested ego.

Samastha Loka 126  8-3-18  God Turmoil
 This message has been read and approved by Sathya Sai Baba for distribution.
Sai Ram.The time has come. There is no more waiting. The Earth is moving into a higher vibration. Give up the old ways. Change your habits now. You and your body must be purer to survive the transition. The new world is wonderful but you have to work hard to be there. You must be of pure mind, pure heart and pure action. Shiva is manifesting more and more. He is demanding absolute obedience to the Laws that run the universe. Love everyone and everything unconditionally. Serve everyone as though they were Sathya Sai Baba or Shiva or Jesus or Buddha, etc. You have no choice. Take  charge of your life now.Baba can be a hard task master. He is demanding obedience and action now. The time of waiting has past. He has visited many people and have found that they are not ready to accept his vibration and the love he has to give. The world is going through a birthing transition process resulting in turmoil everywhere. This process will affect everyone with no exceptions. It could affect your eating, your sleeping, your reaction to others and many other ways. Inwardly and outwardly. Expect to be tested first gently and then harshly.You must surrender completely. Not even 99% is enough. It must be 100% all the time. It has been and will be a struggle but it must happen now. Work harder. As a spiritual being you have had some protection but it will not be enough for what is going to happen. Yes, you will be protected to degree. The effect might be lessen. However, you must surrender completely now for full protection.The world will go through many changes. earthquakes, fires, tornadoes, heat, cold and more. Any thing can happen to get rid of the negativity in almost everyplace on this planet. The more people change, the more seva your do, the more love you give, the more Samastha Loka Sukhino Bhavantu you chant, the greater you will be protected and the events in the world will be helped.Family members may disappear, neighbors maybe gone. Cities may vanish, countries maybe torn asunder. Swami will do anything to purify this planet so that it becomes a light planet.
Many will not make it but those that are loving, pure serving, know that all is one, live from the heart and have surrendered completely will find themselves in an unbelievable world of beauty beyond description, of people who radiate their purity, of kindness, cooperation, happiness and more that are beyond words to describe.BUT you must act now, give up your habits that are holding you back such as television, listening to worldly music, newspapers, meat, alcohol, drugs and many more. Sai Baba is not asking for a one hour commitment or even 10 hours. It must be 24 hours in everything you do, think and feel. There is no more time. No tomorrow. You must act now.We know that some of my dear friends are not heeding this message and will not be moving forward. They have been warned as all of you have. It is your choice: remain in misery or absolute peace and love that defies description.
Be Happy   Always have Compassion

Malaysia dissolves Sai Baba centre due to oracle boy liason

Posted by robertpriddy on March 9, 2018

Malaysia dissolves a Sai Baba center due to “continued liaison with Muddenahalli group…a deviant group.”We learn that this center is only a mere 34 members, which is typical of sb groups. Nothing like ‘the entire world will come to me’ as predicted By Sathya Sai Baba.”

Shubha Ramesh Kumar 6 February ·
The Malaysian Sai Organization is turning to be the kind of leaders that we are all seeking at this time. They are doing the rightful thing by standing up for the truth and shunning an entire center for their allegiance to Mudenahalli by seeking its dissolution. Although some may see this as something sad, we must remember that Swami always said quality not quantity! This is what needs to be done in every center that goes against the principles of Bhagawan.
Please see the attached letter. Jai Sai Ram.

Margitta Bonds: a delusional comment against the Sai exposé

Posted by robertpriddy on March 3, 2018

Comment on a wordpress blog of mine Sathya Sai Baba’s death and ‘mahasamadhi’
Margitta Bonds  facebook.com/app_scoped_user_id/597004973979181x  mabonds25@gmail.com IP 87.157.233.96

“Mr. Pretty do you ever consider to think before you say something? How can you compare the picture of a human body,which is marked by severe illness, with that of the British Queen at her best – same age 84? Sathya Sai Baba sits in a wheel chair at the time of the pictures taken. Does your hate ever stop and do you have no other things to do? What has this spiritual teacher done to you, that you have to leave all your hateful comments and investigation on your web site , i wonder. At the time you visited Prashanti Nilayam with Joy Thomas, while taking His blessings, i think you thought differently. I think enough is enough, don’t you think so. I hope the Divine, whatever name you have given it, will guide you and bless you. Besides – the appearance one does show at age 84 is not the same, depending on life circumstances.”

My reply:
Your comment on my wordpress blog shows you evidently did not know much about Sai Baba, and doubtless do not want to know. You clearly know yet far less about my writings since you wonder what “this spiritual teacher” did to me. He deceived and broke faith with all of us, but it is what he did to so many others that I reacted against. Nonetheless you have asked me some questions which I am most pleased to answer.

I do not hate Sai Baba, but I definitely do disdain him in his countless deceits, breaks of trust, sexual abuses, murder involvement and much more. I learned of all these things to my shock and disappointment firstly from V.K. Narasimhan, then the Baileys and eventually from many other prominent followers who defected. I took up the dutiful task of speaking up for the helpless victims of his many different cynical uses and abuses of followers, for I had been instrumental in bringing many to Sai Baba through my book ’Source of the Dream’ and other writings in his journal and books. After I spoke out, I was through the years contacted by over a thousand ex-devotees who had experienced most awful things from Sai Baba and so I spent several hours daily up until a few years ago responding to them and putting the facts they wanted cleared up on-line. It was time well spent and I have been vindicated by the reports of those people and the way Sai Baba died ignominiously. I consider defending the weak and abused and warning vulnerable minds like yours not to be naive but investigate both sides before getting entrapped in the delusion and psychological problems nearly all devotees do sooner or later (though they keep quiet about their real problems and fears as many of their family members or friends know about.

As to comparing Baba’s old age with that of the Queen. He constantly gave assurances through decades that he was always in perfect health. For example, in Sanathana Sarathi of August 11, 2001 you can read his words “I do not suffer from any kind of disease because there is no trace of greed in Me. That is why I am always healthy.” Also he claimed “Purity, perseverance and patience. With these three you are bound to acquire good health and bliss…. the truth is that these three are responsible for my health (Arogya)” The Queen never boasted like that and I would surmise that it is exactly those three qualities he lacked, but the Queen has in abundance.

Since you got even my name so wrong, I suppose you are an inaccurate judge in other things. It would be best for you to go on believing in all the fraud, as to wise up could possibly destroy even any falsely based peace of mind you may feel and much worse has happened to many devotees just existing in an otherworldly false reality. At the time I knew Joy Thomas I was still unaware of the vast deception that Sai Baba and his corrupt cronies had built up. She, however, moved to Prashanthi Nilayam and found that once there she had one hell of a time, no longer a VIP, no one even to push her wheelchair, a room where noise of passers-by and much else was constant. When she fell ill, she went into the hospital, where she as denied blood transfusion by Dr. Singh and died there. Ray Thomas was stuck in the place and could not do anything to help her or get justice afterwards. He had to remain silent, or else…

Prema Sai at Muddenahalli, former Sai student is half-enthroned there

Posted by robertpriddy on February 25, 2018

Apparently oracle boy is now officially declaring he is Prema Sai!
But he still does not dare sit on the throne chair!

Devotees still loyal to Sathya Sai Baba and Prashanthi Nilayam are demanding that anyone going to visit the ‘oracle boy’ at Muddenahalli should be absolutely banned from setting foot into Prasanthi Nilayam ashram; apparently someone put up a sign by the gate saying that but the ashram took the sign down and now these devotees are complaining that the sign was removed. No one seems to pay respect to the ‘Central Trust’, calling them spineless, cowards and more, even though they were appointed by the ‘poorna avatar‘ himself, and their faith is in tatters (if they really had any but saw through the smoke and mirrors). They don’t seem to be expressing love and tolerance taught by their guru!

Meanwhile, Madhusudan and the Muddenahalli scam has for a second year running committed the utmost of transparent fraud by coughing up a lingam at Shivarathri in copy of Sathya Sai. However it was Harry Houdini (1874-1926), who perfected the trick!
“An old Japanese gentleman… taught Harry how to swallow an ivory ball, show his mouth empty, then bring the ball back. Houdini practiced the regurgitation stunt with a small peeled potato on the end of a string. If the string didn’t permit the student swallower to retrieve the potato while he was developing the muscles in his throat, there was no danger. The potato would slide down into his stomach where it could be digested. A few weeks of practice and Harry could handle solid ivory balls almost as well as his instructor. Later the resourceful Houdini was to use the regurgitation technique to baffle committeemen who searched him for concealed tools during his handcuff act.” (Excerpt from Houdini: The Untold Story by Milbourne Christopher, London: Cassell, 1969, p. 23). This led to countless others including the famous Waldo performing this trick (see Wikipedia)

Terry Reis Kennedy commented that what he is trying to do is “bore us to death… then he can set up his kingdom at Parthi. All those who are asleep there might not even notice!” and , “this is the second year that he is putting on this show…” 

Another commentator put up a picture with deluded Isaac Tigrett asleep during the ceremony!

Prashanthi Nilayam decline continues

Posted by robertpriddy on February 20, 2018

The ‘authorities’ at Prashanthi Nilayam have introduced a new rule, no mobile phones in the Kulwant Hall. Amusing that the use of them during bhajans etc. is so widespread, but not surprising. So the captive audience of students, staff and resident must sit out the 45 minutes daily without their mobiles. They should instead ‘connect with swami’, who – despite having claimed to be omnipresent for all time – is not on-line at all. So they will have to listen to the never-ending drone of the same bhajans and whatever boring programme is provided by the top staff (who have exempted themselves from the ban).
Meanwhile, the Andhra Pradesh authorities are putting cash into developing a new road from Puttaparthi, which has become more and more of a ghost town compared to former days. The political efforts to make Puttaparthi into a pilgrim and tourist centre are getting nowhere fast, while Sathya Sai Baba is fast disappearing from new media and dwindling greatly on the Internet.

Yoga Sadhana Work Shop at north Indian Canteen   The Sai authorities evidently want to cash in on the popularity of hatha yoga variants throughout the world. Yoga workshops never happened in Sai Baba’s lifetime! He had said slighting things about that kind of physical yoga, such as that hanging from the ceiling like a bat would not lead towards realisation. Maybe they hope it is a way to draw more crowds?
