Sai Inner Views and Insights – Howard Murphet

Posted by robertpriddy on March 18, 2011

In the acknowledgement to his last book ‘Sai Inner Views and Insights”, Howard Murphet writes of, ‘my growing public around the world’ (p iii) which shows his ego was alive and well (i.e. “ego” as the bane derided by ‘the avatar’ to the n’th degree). Murphet was blind, bereaved and in depression at the time of writing this swan song to his long series of Sai-wonder hagiographies, which did not contribute to him giving up his delusory faith in the paradise offered by Sathya Sai Baba to his devotees… on the contrary.  (Sathya Sai Baba who is given to any cheap play on words especially to puncture egos,  would sometimes say to him “Murphet… not perfect!”. I once heard him say it myself. Murphet fully demonstrates his credulity and unfounded belief agenda in this book, as in those that went before, such as in the following quotation:-

“We had met her the year before at the first Sai Baba World Conference in 1968 at Bombay — where, to the many thousands present, Sai Baba announced his identity as an Avatar of the divine. As he made the announcement, the lights went off dramatically and came on by themselves a few minutes later. This signal of the lights, untouched by man, seemed to give a powerful significance to the announcement.”
– Howard Murphet, Sai Inner Views and Insights, p. 31.

'Sai Inner Views and Insights' by Howard MurphetThe lights going off invariably only signals that India’s power system is as unreliable as ever… and so not a meaningful coincidence at all. Why it should be of positive significance is unexplained – lights going off would rather indicate something negative – instead signalling darkness and a lapse of truth and reason? But not to blind believer Howard Murphet, who would transform every negative fact about his revered god-guru into a proof of his divinity, as he has done assiduously since the major revelations about sexual abuse and murder complicity by Sathya Sai Baba spread across the Internet from 1999 onwards.

Another example of Murphet’s willingness to believe anything that hints of a possible miracle or ‘leela’ (i.e. ‘divine play)’ by Sai Baba was reported by Tony O’Clery as follows:-

According to Murphet, Sathya Sai Baba “…told Valmai Worthington to tell the ‘Pink Twins’ from Australia to be cured of their arthritic knees by him. He even told them to cancel their appointments for knee replacement surgery.
From Murphet’s  ‘Sai Inner Views and Insights’, ch..’Dorothy’s Knees’..p116-120. Leela Press…1996.

 (It is also on an Ashram Video showing sb walking Dorothy out to the crowd of devotees to show the great ‘cure’ he had achieved.)

”Dorothy was given a chance to have knee replacement in Brisbane but sb said this… ‘No Swami replied… No operation.”

Valmai asked him again. ‘Swami I want to make sure I understand you correctly about Dorothy’s knees. The surgeon says she must have an operation. Please tell me again what you said about that?
Swami replied, quite decisively “No operation I will operate, I will cure her.” So being happy about this Dorothy cancelled the surgery after being on the waiting list in Brisbane. She was in Australia at the time but made the painful trip to India for her ‘cure’. The whole thing was a psychological adrenalin show and on return to Australia she found she wasn’t cured at all… sb used her for temporary propaganda purposes after they had devoted their lives to him at SWARA.”

Sathya Sai did the following:”They came, he circled his hands over the knees, with coloured vibhuti and then walked her around to show a cure. She could manage to walk a little anyway, but in pain.”
“I was a member of the SWARA centre – where Dorothy and her sister worked -, for the years 1986 and 1987, with partial year attendances through to 1992, after that my Australian attendances were in the Sydney Centres only, and I was the secretary of the Vancouver Sai centre and was well known in Canada. My friend lived with them, and my children knew them both as well. So it was more than a passing acquaintance. There is even a photo of me working as a volunteer there. It was sent to India, perhaps it is in the book with all the others.
Well folks that was it, next time in Oz I saw her at the ‘Wayside Chapel’ in Sydney she was uncured for all to see. …The fact remains Dorothy was in a wheelchair in 1993 and still up to her death in 2003 as indicated by her sister and ABC.”

O’Clery also pointed out that no one has “…explained why Dorothy needed a wheelchair from the time of the so called cure right up to when she died. A ten year period in front of umpteen numbers of people, and on video and TV.
There are claims that she was walking around for 3 years as cured. This is not true, she was using her walking sticks etc and in a wheelchair, when tired. I don’t know what kind of meds she was taking either, although she was under a doctors care for the condition still. There was no time of remission at all. She could always walk haltingly for a short time anyway… There was never any remission.
Yet sb didn’t promise only a (3 years) break of her illness (which she didn’t get anyway), but a complete cure. Even telling her to cancel her surgery as he would fix her and she would never need crutches and wheelchairs for the rest of her life.
I personally saw her in company of several dozens of people two years later in front of many people and she wasn’t cured at all, besides I talked to her during that 3 years. She told me the healing would be gradual; well she died before it graduated.
Moiya, told me that she didn’t want Sai Baba to cure her as Dorothy was worse. Dorothy suffered from ‘True Believer Syndrome’, as devotees do these days and couldn’t face the fact that she may have wasted a lot of energy in her life believing in a fraud. Even to the extent of not believing her own disabled body, hadn’t been cured…”

Murphet also wrote some highly imaginative ideas about Gorbachev. Some while after he came to power, Murphet was at an interview, but did not dare ask Sai Baba about Gorbie. Instead he wrote: “A mental question is as good as a verbal one to Swami. His eyes gave me the affirmative answer but all his lips said was, “Gorbachev is a good man.” I knew then that he had played some wonderful, powerful tune on the akashic strings that had manoeuvred circumstance and brought about the great change.” (ital. above are mine)
In one book, Murphet thought that a speck of light on a photo of ‘the avatar’ he took was caused by his miraculous leela (i.e. divine miraculous sport). Anyone who knows a bit about photography in India knows that such spots occur often on developed prints, the cause most likely being heat during the developing process. Murphet asked Sathya Sai Baba if it as his leela, and for once Sai Baba said it was due to a flaw in the photography.

The Sathya Sai Baba Cult
 infiltration of SWARA

Posted by robertpriddy on September 15, 2009

Below here is a transcript of the TV coverage of a public demonstration led by the manager, other staff  and numerous clients of the Brisbane institution  SWARA (the Pink Twins’ Sathya Sai Baba service project. The reason for the protest is clear from the content. It resulted in the departure of several of the staff and more clients from the cult-run Sunshine Welfare and Remedial Association.

Infiltrating a Cult
 February 2, 2009: Exclusive footage behind the scenes of an underground cult movement. 
Channel: ACA (A Current Affair) NineMSN

Below is a full transcript to the NineMSN program with comments and documentation links:

Tracy Grimshaw: Well it was founded as a Government run center for disabled people to learn life skills, now it’s accused of being a front for a bizarre religious cult that started in India.
ACA – NineMSN – A Current Affair: (Confrontation scene with Kelli Vallis shouting “hurry up…hurry up…we have physical violence towards people with a disability”.)
Chris Allen: Is this a cult?
Kelli Vallis: Absolutely. If you look up the definition of a cult, you will find that they fit almost all the criteria of a cult and their behavior, more importantly their behavior, is very cult-like.
ACA – NineMSN – A Current Affair: (Confrontation scene with Kelli Vallis shouting “Security guards are manhandling our clients and they are physically abusing them”.)
Chris Allen: Ugly scenes as disable people are locked out of a center built for them by the Queensland Government.
Kelli Vallis: They are disgraceful people. They’ve taken away their rights and now they’ve actually physically abused them.
Chris Allen: Kelli Vallis is the manger of the center, or was, until the committee which runs it sacked her after she led this protest.
Kelli Vallis: They have been taken over by a cult.
Chris Allen: This is government funded?
Kelli Vallis: It absolutely is.
Moyia O’Brien: That is completely ridiculous. That is not true. The Sai Baba Organisation is not a cult, it is not even a religion. It is a service group.
Chris Allen: Moiya O’Brien is Chairman of the committee which runs the center. She’s also a devotee of Sai Baba, the Indian mystic who claims to be a god.
Moyia O’Brien: I am convinced he is part of God. He’s part of who we are. But he is perhaps a bigger part than what we are.
Chris Allen: Skeptics say Sai Baba is also a big fraud. He claims to produce magic dust and jewels from thin air. But look closely and you can see the ash comes from pellets he crushes between his fingers. And the jewels he conjures up are just sleight of hand. Here he produces a necklace. Look again and you’ll see the fumble under the box. While never convicted of a criminal offence, there have been allegations of murder, fraud and sexual abuse of children. At one stage, the US Government issued a warning about visiting his ashram in Southern India. But that hasn’t stopped millions from believing in Sai Baba, including Moiya O’Brien.
Moyia O’Brien (taken from a video at a Sai Center): Sai Ram. Life is beautiful with Baba. We are all beautiful because he is changing us.
Chris Allen: Moiya is so devoted, she’s become a sort of Sai Baba elder in Australia.
Moyia O’Brien (taken from a video at a Sai Center): How could you not love him? Baba I love you, love and adore you.
Kelli Vallis: People who come here don’t make the choice to be involved in a belief system about an Indian guru who they believe is God incarnate.
Chris Allen: Kelli says five of the seven member committee which runs the center are Sai Baba and that Moiya O’Brien has allowed the group to use the center for prayer meetings.
Kelli Vallis: They have complete control over our service.

Chris Allen: (speaking to developmentally challenged man) Do they try and recruit you, ask you to join up?
Steve (developmentally challenged man): Yeah they did but I said no way.
Chris Allen: Disabled kinds like Steve and Michelle say they’ve been pressured to join up.
Michelle (developmentally challenged woman): Yes they have tried but I’ve just stood my ground and said no it’s not for me.
Moyia O’Brien: That is completely untrue. We have never discussed Sai Baba.

Chris Allen: (speaking to developmentally challenged man) Do they try and recruit you, ask you to join up?
Steve (developmentally challenged man): Yeah they did but I said no way.
Chris Allen: Disabled kinds like Steve and Michelle say they’ve been pressured to join up.
Michelle (developmentally challenged woman): Yes they have tried but I’ve just stood my ground and said no it’s not for me.
Moyia O’Brien: That is completely untrue. We have never discussed Sai Baba.
Moiya O’Brien (switching back to the cult accusation): I completely deny it.
Chris Allen: But you must appreciate that people are going to say this looks like a cult, smells like a cult, it must be a cult.
Moiya O’Brien: Yeah, but it is not necessarily said.

Chris Allen: Even sadder the sight of disabled clients being manhandled by security guards hired by the committee to keep them out.
Kelli Vallis: These people are not to be left in charge or responsible of this organization or the welfare of these people. It’s just disgraceful.
Tracy Grimshaw: And in a statement sent to A Current Affair, the Department of Communities and Disability Services Queensland said it’s now investigating complaints made against that center. We will let you know the outcome.

The report is still available on video here

Proxy Defender of Sai Baba and SWARA

Posted by robertpriddy on March 12, 2009

In his “Sathya Sai Baba – Life, Love and Spirituality” blog” Gerald Joe Moreno of Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA, makes a number of entirely false claims. In his very language and conduct he ceaselessly infracts the teachings of the one he defends. The is the constant use of name-calling, labelling, derision, sneering, demeaning, assuming the very worst of all those who criticize his idol Sathya Sai Baba and, indeed, amid the anarchy that resides within parts of the Internet, severely libeling one after another who stands forth to question him and his worldwide cult.

Among a plethora of sites, which he manipulates in such a way as to leap higher in Internet search engine results, Gerald Joe Moreno has a blogsite:  sathyasaibaba. It operates under the pseudonym Equalizer.

Gerald Moreno’s Galvanic Attacks on Broadcasters and other Critics

Whatever top class broadcaster (e.g., BBC, CBC, SBS, Channel NineMSN) or newspaper (e.g., Times of London, Telegraph, Guardian, India Today, Ottawa Times, The Age, etc.) investigates Sai Baba and his organisation is fair game for Gerald Joe Moreno’s attacks. Moreno always right. Critics always wrong.

Recently, a leading national broadcaster screened the Australian Current Affair report ‘Infiltrating a Cult’, February 2, 2009, on Channel NINEMSN. It showed an Australian Sathya Sai Baba cult leader, Moyia O’Brien, denying that the Sai Baba organisation is religious but only a social service organisation. To view the ACA Chris Allen interview and accompanying footage of the violent cult-hired security guards,  ‘Infiltrating a Cult’, click HERE.

Moyia O’Brien’s subterfuge recalls, for example, how the American Sathya Sai Organisation used a perverse technicality in the case in Orange County, California, USA, brought brought against the directors of the Sathya Sai Society of America by Alaya Rahm (with the support of his family who were longtime noted leaders): this multimillion dollar sect claimed via its lawyers that it was only a bookshop. See:

Alaya Rahm’s Lawsuit vs Sathya Sai Society of America. Joint Statement by the International JuST Group and the Rahm family

Moreno is on a par with the Sai cult leaders round the world, including Ms O’Brien in the Australian television interview, who plays down – or rather wilfully deceives about  – her close affiliation with the Sathya Sai Organization.

The ‘Secret Swami’s’ Culture’ of Denial

In the Moyia O’Brien case, Moreno falsely leaps to the notion that Barry Pittard –  who has taken up the cause of the sacked manager and disabled clients – and myself were involved from the start as instigators of the revolt against SWARA (Sunshine Welfare and Remedial Centre) by staff, who were in perfectly good professional repute and clients (several staff were sacked).  However, one of the organisers completely unknown to us contacted and informed that the programme was due to be aired on national television. It was previewed for some days on TV on  the prime time Australian Current Affairs TV programme. It is furthermore the case that a number of well-respected Sai Baba devotees have themselves spoken up on behalf of the staff and clients, and courageously continue to do so. Yet again, Moreno’s proclivity for conspiracy-type ‘thinking’ and putting worst-case scenarios is exposed. Barry Pittard’s meticulous reportage of these events can be seen in these articles:

Sathya Sai Baba Cult Exposure By Major TV Channel In Australia
Sathya Sai Cult Under Media Scutiny In Australia
Australian Current Affair: ‘Infiltrating A Cult’ (Sathya Sai Baba)

(see the original video and report here) NOTE:  A reliable source from within the media has confirmed that Channel NineMSN withdrew the presence of its ‘Infiltrating a cult’ segment because the Sathya Sathya Sai cult threats of legal action. Media around the world, including SBS and The Age in Australia have refused to be intimidated by the powerful Sathya Sai Organisation. We will not be intimidated and continue to make available the footage!

Hiding the belief that Sathya Sai Baba is God Incarnate

Posted by robertpriddy on February 15, 2009

Covering up more and more: The International Sathya Sai Organization’s leaders realized long ago that it was extremely necessary to play down the questionable sides of Sathya Sai Baba – his megalomaniac claims of being The Deity of all Deities at whose feet all prayers to whichever god eventually arrive and so forth (which they nevertheless must believe wholeheartedly – along with everything else he states – if they are to be high office-bearers in his cult). The International Organization was gradually convinced – not least by Westerners – that Sathya Sai’s ‘teaching’ and public image must be sanitized as far as possible so as not to put off people who would be sceptical (thus regarded as ’spiritually immature’). Therefore the fullest possible emphasis was to be put on Sathya Sai social service (’Seva’) and the miracles – unavoidable since they have always been Sai Baba’s main claim to fame – were only to be discussed as to their ‘inner meaning’ for spiritual growth.

Torbjørn Meyer, Denmark

Torbjørn Meyer,

From the 1990s onward the Scandinavian countries were instructed by the European Central Coordinator, Mr. Thorbjørn Meyer, to play down all the kind of proclamations that “people would not easily understand”, including the miracles and Sathya Sai Baba’s many claims of being the Divine Avatar come to save humanity and his many other documented ‘fantastic’ statements (read a cross-section of these). Evidently this applies with full force to the many allegations of murder involvement and sexual abuse by Sai Baba which continue to be reported. We have evidence that some devotees today think this is a very clever move on behalf of Sai Baba (and against those of us who want the truth about his deceits to be known). This is how cultist’s reasoning works. Thorbjørn Meyer and his associates in Copenhagen tried to deceive the Mayor ofFredriksberg that they were the Sathya Sai Organization when they tried to buy Arresødal Castle.

Arresødal Castle

Arresødal Castle

However, they were later hounded out by angry demonstrators from the Fredriksberg area! (See here and  here ) This was demonstrated at length in the Danish TV documentary film ‘Seduced’ about Sathya Sai Baba.

As already pointed out on this blog site, the surviving ‘Pink Twin’ Moiya O’Brien, denied on Australian TV that she sees Sai Baba as God. However, she certainly does as she is on record in her book ‘Touched by the Lord’ (!) where she writes, for example on p. 153 “… It was many years before we realised that the God we worshipped in our hearts was here in a form that someone has described as “Vibrating with the essence of all”. But she also admits that she does not tell the clients to the Association she co-founded what she really believes on this, for she wrote:

We tell people that He is a beautiful, loving spiritual being. We have to be cautious about telling people that He is God.” This is in accordance with the strict instructions of this clandestine cult Sathya Sai organization.

The Sathya Sai Organisation requires all its members to accept that Sathya Sai Baba is God, this being stated clearly in the paper which, in many countries, new members must sign. Those who will not accept this condition are either not allowed to become members or – if already so – are excluded from the Organisation.

Moiya O’Brien’s deceit about the Sathya Sai Organization

Posted by robertpriddy on February 12, 2009

Click on above image to see brief video clip (only 850Kbs)

In the above video clip, after the sacked manager of SWARA, Kelli Vallis answers interview questions, the surviving ‘Pink Twin’, Moiya O’Brien – the c0-founder of SWARA (Sunshine Remedial and Welfare Association) denies a documented fact, that the Sathya Sai Organization is NOT only a service organization, but a spiritual organization with the structure and activities typical of churches and their hierarchies. As every single member knows, the service activities take up only one of the three ‘wings’ of this fabulous creature… the other two being ‘spiritual’ and ‘educational’… in short it is in practice a subordinate third  part of the whole. It is above all a personality cult for worshipping and spreading the name and doctrines of self-appointed World Saviour and God Incarnate, Sathya Sai Baba. Sathya Sai baba has called his teaching the ‘Sai religion’ and permitted use of this term by Central Coordinators. He constantly preaches it as a ‘universal religion’ combining all faith into one ‘essential’ faith, despite his claiming to be the God who created the universe now incarnate in his body!

However, even its official Charter shows that Moiya O’Brien’s claim is untrue… for the Sathya Sai Organization has as a main aim the spiritual instruction of its members, children and visitors (see Charter excerpt below). This is seen in its activities, which are overwhelmingly devotional singing meetings and spiritual-religious study circle. This I can attest from having read countless reports from groups and countries, having attended international meetings and been to been to many different centres and groups in several countries during my 18 years of leadership of the organization in Norway. Further, leaders in the organization were continually given direction from on high that in all public meetings and contacts with the media that we should emphasize the service activities as the main purpose because it was felt that the worship of Sathya Sai Baba as God Incarnate would cause skepticism from society and the official bodies whose endorsement may be necessary for the organization’s status as a tax-protected charity and such reasons. On such a deceptive agenda, Moiya O’Brien has succeeded in obtaining such State funding from Brisbane  authorities beyond all limits.

SWARA’s Sai Baba members believe he is God the Creator

Posted by robertpriddy on February 7, 2009

From Prof. N. Kasturi's autobiography

From Prof. N. Kasturi's autobiography

The ultimate in one-upmanship! In the official Sathya Sai Baba biographer’s authenticated autobiography leaves no holds barred as regards who this cult leader claims to be! Devotees who become members of his organization are required to believe his statements and teachings! (See the relevant part of its Charter here) Because of the incredibility of the claim, the Sathya Sai organization always presents itself outwardly as a ‘service organization’ and strives to keep that public profile. But it  is really a cover for a proselytizing cult. The recent scandal over the Sai Baba dominated SWARA organization in Brisbane, which has long pulled the wool over government officials’ eyes about their true nature, showed its core cultist nature in forcefully expelling and denying right of speech to members and disabled clients, many of whom oppose the indoctrination by SWARA’s owner, wealthy Moiya O’Brien, and her Sai Baba cult supporters (apparently mainly of Indian origin).

Trying to sidestep the issue, O’Brien lied outright about her beliefs when it was reported the she belongs to a cult, saying:  “That is completely ridiculous. That is not true. The Sai Baba Organisation is not a cult, it is not even a religion. It is a service group.” She also contests disabled clients’ outspoken on camera testimony on the video about the indoctrination which is conducted there… she simply denies it, even though she has actually published what is done in this respect in detail in her book ‘The Touch of the Lord’’. Here are some passages from Chapter Five ‘The Story of SWARA –  Divine Uncertainties, p. 56 which prove her untruthfulness beyond any doubt:-

“We asked Baba in a recent interview if He had a message for all of the SWARA people. He said, “Tell them that I bless them all and I am with them always.” So we passed that on. At SWARA we talk about Baba, so they all know about Him….

The clients know we go to India to see Sai Baba, and we send them cards of Him and His words. We give an inspirational talk to the whole group every day when we work out our program in the mornings and we often bring Sai Baba into conversations and tell them some of His inspiring words. When we prepare the main room in SWARA for the Thursday night devotional singing for the Brisbane Sai Centre, the clients all help to make the room attractive and they arrange the flowers, etc. When we have our Blue Nurses day, the clients all help to roll up the packages of sweets, tidy the rooms and decorate the hall. They play a very active part in all of that and they know it is a Sai Baba service day – everyone sees Him as a special friend and helper.
We tell people that He is a beautiful, loving spiritual being. We have to be cautious about telling people that He is God.”

(my emphasis in red)

The association – run overwhelmingly by Sai Baba devotees –  dismissed professional social worker Kelli Vallis from her post after clients’ diverse and repeated complaints against their administration – forwarded by her – had been sidelined many times and their rights suppressed or ignored, and they took their grievences up in a protest with placards, where they were brutally manhandled. The matter is on-going since it involves a professional wrongly dismissed and more besides.
