Isaac Tigrett on the go again

Posted by robertpriddy on July 20, 2016

Isaac Tigrett is 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). 

Recently in California, the plans were announced by oracle boy to start a free ‘Super Speciality Hospital’ in the state of Mississippi in America, and Isaac will be in charge. He has already been warned about the “opposition and threats” that will try to hinder his mission. One wonders how many rich fools there are to finance such a venture? 

One also wonders what has become of the “Mystic Inn of the 7th Ray” mammoth new age project that Isaac proclaimed to the world in 2012 and has since gone exactly nowhere since then? One cannot find information about any development whatsoever and the Facebook page and website started to offer news on the venture, has not been updated in years.

Below are quotes regarding the hospital-to-be in Mississippi; will this also be yet another dead-end venture of the now quite aged and cash-poor Isaac Tigrett? There is also a video of Isaac saying online that oracle boy wants him to open a casino in Las Vegas: joke or not?

“This occasion was used to announce that a Super Speciality Hospital will be built in the state of Mississippi. (It is the poorest place in the United States). Also that Isaac Tigrett will spend a little more time with him in India before he moves to United States to continue his assignments which included this project.

“It will be a very difficult undertaking as there will be opposition and threats from many people.  When confronted by this negativity, he should call upon Sai Baba who will immediately take care of the situation.”

Tigrett and his supernatural wonders that fade away never cease to amuse us! This buffoon presumably still has some cash stashed away… or is he relying on the rump of the US SSO donors? Or is it is crystal skull he put in the pyramid in Memphis that is working its magic at last?
A casino in Las Vegas could be a likely financial source for this Hard Rock, beer and beef-burger entrepreneur – taking money from the rich suckers to build a monument, allegedly to Swami – whether the dead one or the invented ‘subtle Sai’, who can say. The whole satirical saga is unbeatable and unbearably weird. The Mystic Inn of the Seventh Ray, which Sai Baba designed with his close buddy, Isaac, will have to wait for any future successful claimant to wear the mantle of Prema Sai, I suppose.

Sathya Sai Baba has claimed that “all healing comes from God” and insists that the only sure and secure route to health is by leading a pure life, worshipping God, avoiding sin and a host of other fundamentalist injunctions… yet he had to get his devotees to build and endorse worldly hospitals. To see the self-designated God Creator of the Universe inspecting giant model teeth while they open and shut rather brings it all down very much to earth.

This hospital, donated with all its inventory by former Hard Rock Café owner, Isaac Tigrett, is controversial because all its criteria for admission – and admission lists – are kept secret. It is know that devotees from around the world and in India are given (mostly) free treatment there, though it is claimed that it was built to serve the poor.

Strangely, the hospital always looks almost deserted from outside – where armed military guards stand, while other health facilities in India are thronged by people seeking treatment. His hospitals are private hospitals, not open to public inspection nor any breakdown of accounts or reports on the minutes and decisions made.

Isaac Tigrett, mystic ‘crystal skulls’ & Sai Baba

Posted by robertpriddy on October 7, 2008

Isaac Tigrett claims he was entrusted with Sai Baba’s ‘living legacy’ and much else fantastic. (See latest up-date). Years ago, he stated that Sathya Sai Baba – who Tigrett worships as God Incarnate etc. etc. – gave him a crystal skull at an interview where the object just appeared in Sai Baba’s hands (as posted here). Tigrett believes in the supernatural power of this skull and that cosmic balance depends on it (somehow) and that it carries a cosmic curse which can destroy the earth – as can be seen from the pages copied from the Internet below (inset in brown text lower down).

The ‘Skull of Doom’ a modern product – not ancient

This all goes back to the so-called ‘Skull of Doom’- once believed to have been ancient Aztec handiwork, allegedly discovered in 1924 by Anna Le Guillon Mitchell-Hedges. She was interviewed on the National Geographic TV documentary, which showed the exposure of fraud and scientific research into that skull (and other from the British Museum and the Smithsonian Institute). Electron microscopy showed definitively that they are all fakes from the mid- to late-1800s, manufactured using modern machines and abrasives.

A dozen rare crystal skulls are in private and public collections, some very clear, some of colored quartz, some life size, some smaller and coarser. They are believed to originate from Mexico and Central America, though extensive scientific tests have also shown that crystal skulls claimed to be ancient Aztec or Mayan creations often come from crystal only found in Madagascar or Brazil.

Richard A. Lovett and Scot Hoffman report in the National Geographic magazine (see here) that thousands of ctrystal skulls are produced every year in Brazil, China, and Germany  are not uncommon or terribly mysterious. Only a few are macabre objects of interest and controversy among archaeologists, scientists, spiritualists, and museum officials and have been so for over a century. Apparently the myth has grown so much that many believe these skulls were carved up to tens of thousands of years ago by an ancient Mesoamerican civilization or that they are relics from the legendary island of Atlantis or even proof that extraterrestrials visited the Aztec sometime before the Spanish conquest!

Author Joshua Shapiro’s website cites claims of healing and expanded psychic abilities from people who have been in the presence of such skulls.“We believe the Crystal Skulls are a form of computer which are able to record energy and vibration that occur around them,” he writes. ” The skull will pictorially replay all events or images of the people who have come into contact with them (i.e. they contain the history of our world).”


Although The Pyramid was ostensibly built to host concerts and sporting events, the sound for concerts was so bad that the city sued the contractor for faulty acoustical design. Workers retroactively added padded strips to absorb the sound. Even Isaac Tigrett’s mysterious crystal skull time capsule was retrieved within a year of the Pyramid’s opening, creating both an ownership controversy and ruining the marketing surprise he had planned. [Editor’s note: The crystal fixture was revealed in an article by the Flyer‘s John Branston and subsequently removed.]




Copied from now defunct page at

Maybe we need to be putting in a call to Isaac Tigrett to see if he’ll put his crystal skull back in The Pyramid. 

First, there was “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull racking up more than $300 million. Then, two weeks ago, the Smithsonian opened its crystal skull exhibit, and now, the museum plans to premiere its documentary, “Legend of the Crystal Skulls,” in September. Now we learn that there are crystal skulls on exhibit in the British Museum in London and the Musee du Quai Branly in Paris.

Faking It

Star of the Smithsonian exhibit and the film is a crystal skull that arrived in the mail at the Smithsonian 16 years ago. It was in a package addressed to “MezoAmerican Museum” and a letter said it was made by the Aztecs. Neither the museum or the skull was real. In other words, the nation’s foremost museum system have taken a fake and turned it into a franchise. If only we had been so clever. Some say the skulls are from Atlantis. Other say that if all of them come together at the same place, they will release all knowledge and stop computers. Some say they were made by Mayans or maybe even extraterrestrials. And yet, if the skull has any power, it is its ability to inspire myths and legends. In that, it has something in common with The Pyramid. For 17 years, we’ve harbored the myth that it can become a 365-day a year tourist attraction.

The most ominous warning was given by Isaac Tigrett following the removal of the crystal skull that he had secretly riveted to the steel superstructure of The Pyramid apex. The small black box was spotted by a maintenance man about a year after the arena had opened.

Cosmic Imbalance

Pried from its secret place, the box was opened (the momentous event was filmed) with great ceremony in a conference room in the bottom of The Pyramid, and inside the velvet-lined box and covered with gauze dusted with a fragrant powder was a small crystal skull. Because of Mr. Tigrett’s interest in Eastern mysticism, it was immediately obvious who put it there. Although the skull seemed to have more in common with those allegedly found in Mayan archaeological sites, city and county officials were told that the skull had materialized in the hands of Mr. Tigrett’s guru, Sathya Sai Baba, during a conversation.

After all, the founder of Hard Rock Café and House of Blues had a special debt to the Indian mystic, who protected him during a devastating car wreck in California. Hurtling off the road in his sports car, Mr. Tigrett said that Sai Baba appeared in his car, put his arms around him and protected him from harm. The car was destroyed. In other words, the crystal skull’s connection to the religious leader and guru gave it special power, which was amplified by the additional force of The Pyramid itself, according to Mr. Tigrett. “You don’t have any idea what you have done,” he said upon being told that the crystal skull had been removed, adding somberly that the cosmic balance of the earth could be disturbed as well.


By that time, suggestions that removal of the skull could curse The Pyramid were laughable. After all, with the crystal skull in place, little had gone right there.  If Memphis had been interpreting signs, perhaps there wasn’t one delivered more forcefully than the thunder storm that postponed the “Big Dig” extravaganza to kick off construction. A native American telephoned city and county officials with a warning – the Pyramid site was sacred and that the rain was an omen of worse things to come. Officials joked about the warning for days. Two years later, no one was laughing. Construction had been delayed, the price had increased, and the shape-shifting Shlenker/Tigrett development was no closer to coming into focus.

The Great American Pyramid plan was essentially dead. So was the Hard Rock Café; the glass inclinator to the apex; the perverse mutation of of Egyptology and rock music into Rakapolis; Dick Clark’s American Music Awards Hall of Fame; a re-creation of the Cavern, ground zero for Beatles fans, and priceless Stax Records artifacts; an Omnimax theater; a light and music spectacle in the arena on non-event days; a radio station on the top of the building beaming shortwave Memphis music; and what became called the “scheme du jour,” ideas that often became inoperable before the end of the business day.

The Tigrett family is involved in an internal feud, according to one posting on the Internet:-
Wednesday, February 27, 2008  Family Feud
WMC-TV updates us
on the Tigrett affair: A barricade blocks the area on Beale Street covered with a board. A look underneath reveals a blank slab of concrete. A note honoring the Tigrett family was removed on Tuesday. Elkington said a note with Pat and John Tigrett’s name on it will be put down soon.

In another posting  we read: “John and Pat Tigrett and Fred Smith were the ramrods for The Pyramid….” with the comment that “…every one of those deals has had its problems. Most did not meet expectations and attendance projections.”
