Call For Media and Government Investigation

of Sathya Sai Baba And his worldwide cult, the Sathya Sai Organization

My Life As Sathya Sai Baba’s Prophecy. Part 6, Final

Posted by Barry Pittard on July 8, 2007

Satya Purcell’s serialized account ‘My Life As Sathya Sai Baba’s Prophecy’ – subtitled Murder in the ‘Cathedral’! (Or Sai Baba’s Mandir) – concludes with Part 6., at: It was Sathya Sai Baba, arguably India’s most famous – or infamous – guru who named this son of Sharon and Gary Purcell, who were among foundational figures like the 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.

“Only a properly conducted investigation would have dispelled the view that has been shared by many – that Sai Baba, who was well in command after the first confusion of events, did what many wealthy and politically powerful criminals do.  He had them killed!

“It is the culture of cover-up in matters both great and small that will surely be the undoing of the Sathya Sai Organization”.

“The crime scene had not been secured, an absolute fundament of proper police procedure. Hours after their prompt arrival, the police had rounded up these former students inside the mandir – the place where worshippers sing to God – and shot them dead. Some investigation! It made the stomach sick, even more than the presence of swilling blood”.

“One of the sweepers pushed the water right up to my bare feet and I had to quickly step back to avoid getting my feet wet with this bloody water.  I remember thinking that there must have been a lot of blood for the water to still be pink by the time it reached me”.

“I carry the name of one of the biggest spiritual frauds of all time, given to me by him when I was a child. I am not a baby now, and will not be silenced – even though knowing that to be a former devotee who speaks out is necessarily to attract extreme vilification, distortion and slander … The truth is hard.  I know because I carry it as my name”.

“Oh, let me not exclude, since I have been a keen amateur magician and member of the International Magician’s Society that, all the while, though a conman of genius, Sai Baba carries off his master act despite being a really bad magician. How ironic!”
