May You Look At The Moon And See Santa In It
Posted by Barry Pittard on December 25, 2007
In the almost magical Christmassy spirit of those who have been merrily following the ‘moon miracle’ issue, I extend two almost Irish blessings:
May you look at the Moon and see Santa in it.
May the same Moon come down your chimney (if by some miracle you still have one!)
Response to Priddy and Pittard Blogsites
More seriously, I wish to express thanks for the (virtually unimaginable number) of visits to https://barrypittard.wordpress.com . The same striking phenomenon is occurring with former head of the Norwegian Sathya Sai Baba Organization, Robert Priddy’s blogsite at: http://robertpriddy.wordpress.com (I note that he, too, has just posted a Christmas message)
It is a response that outweighs the (also almost unimaginable) libel, distortion, stalking both on and off the Internet, and other less than spiritual responses by pro Sai Baba antagonists. I would add, however, that apart from certain of his close servitors from several countries who have hidden the facts from their rank-and-file, very many of Sai Baba’s followers are distinctly decent individuals who do not stoop to the tactics espoused by those official (such as Dr G. Venkataraman), those closely allied to officials and those who are Sai Baba apologists in general.
The Decline of the Showman Empire
It is good that we didn’t have to wait for Christmas for such a response to our blogsites. Nor for the repeated reports of continued exit from Sai Baba centers. Nor news of considerable stoppage of numbers visiting Sai Baba. Nor information about Sai Baba’s deteriorating physical and mental condition.
Plugging Financial Haemorrhage
We learn that the Sathya Sai Organization is throwing considerable money into recruiting at very plush and costly venues, so that new waves of wealthy donors will emerge and prevent financial disaster. Among other measures, his airport, with its capacity to take even jumbo jets, has been put up for sale.
Source Handling Issues
Some of our information is far too sensitive to share publicly but some sources are happy to reveal to bona fide media, academics and other investigators so long as they have outstandingly good repute and proper ethical policy standards in place. Our informants include government personnel posted in situ with formal duties, ex-alumni in his institutions, travelers both partial and not partial to Sai Baba, and others too close up to mention.
None! Is it not better to go out now and enjoy the Joy of the Season – such as with those almost Heavenly angels, our children? May we keep them safe from harm …
