Satya Purcell’s My Life As Sathya Sai Baba’s Prophecy, Pt 5
Posted by Barry Pittard on June 29, 2007
Satya Purcell’s serialized account My Life As Sathya Sai Baba’s Prophecy continues, Part 5.
Also known as Sathya, Sathya Sai and Satch, Satya Purcell’s account is being serialized during May-June 2007 at: http://www.Exbaba.com.
It was Sathya Sai Baba, arguably India’s most historically famous – or infamous – guru who named this son of Sharon and Gary Purcell. The latter were among foundational figures like the U.S. multi millionaire supporters of Sai Baba, Elsie and Walter Cowan (Satya’s godparents), Dr John (Jack) Hislop, and others in the worldwide movement that became the highly organized, powerful and influential authoritarian cult, the Sathya Sai Baba Organization.
Satya’s story harks to 1993, when murderous horrors were unleashed in Sai Baba’s bedroom, then covered up by the Ashram and Indian government. Also male youths in the Hal Honig-led group related accounts of Sai Baba’s sexual molestation of young males. In Part 5, Satya discusses the magical aspects of massive deceit.

“As a former amateur magician and member of the International Magician’s Society, I can certainly say that there are a lot better magicians than Sai Baba, both amateur and professional. His magic is mediocre at best”.
“Accounts of others over the years indicate that Sai Baba’s security wing runs a whole information network that comprises taxi and bus drivers, beggars, shopkeepers, restauranteurs, service volunteers and those in the ashram front office, etc., etc”.
“How does he know our deepest secrets? Because Sai devotees are always opening up to him. They are either talking with others or writing letters to him that expose their private prayers and thoughts. It’s really an old magician trick. You plant people in the line outside the building and they strike up casual conversations with people to find out some of their life details and then report back to the magician before the show. It is also an old corrupt evangelist’s trick. Have a look at Steve Martin’s ‘Leap of Faith’, in which he plays a traveling shyster preacher”.
