Australian Current Affair Exposes Sathya Sai Baba Cult
Posted by Barry Pittard on February 5, 2009
From time to time, international coordinators, such as Robert Priddy, the late Glen Meloy, and, at an earlier stage, Hari Sampath, have received compelling testimony from former students, staff and others who have been close to Sathya Sai Baba. The witneses are checked out to ensure that they are not among the attempted ‘plants’, such as Sai Baba’s ex-teacher Murali Krishna Yachendra. See:
The International Sathya Sai Organization – an accessory to a massive libel and disinformation campaign (Open letter to the Prasanthi Council – c/o Dr. M. Goldstein, Dr. G. Venkataraman and its other members).

Cultic Conduct. High Preachments, Low Practices
We screen the identities of various other coordinators within our network of former followers. However, (as has been the case with organs like the BBC, Times of London, UNESCO, and other principled media, investigators and reputed institutions, we stand ready to give account. And indeed to make sworn testimony in courts in any democratic countries.
Unfortunately, many accounts of abuse by Sathya Sai Baba – of serial sexual molestation of boys and young men and other shocking types of abuse by him, and in some cases abuses by key servitors – are so sensitive and confidential that direct access will not be shared. However, even here, and only with the permission of some of the afflicted families and individuals, we are able point media etc., to modes of confirmation from leading international lawyers that testimony of credible provenance exists.
Those Sai Baba forces who deride our need for confidentiality, and who wish to deny proper, fair and protected rights to survivors of abuse to have the Sathya Sai Organization made accountable behave most reprehensibly.
The second half of this blog is an excerpt from a longer testimony that is quite typical of the testimony we have received over several years.
IMPORTANT TO NOTE: The screening of many former devotee participants from public view is so as to modify the severity of defamations, libels, invasion of privacy within communities and so on by Sathya Sai Baba people (including certain of his key leaders) who stray (as he himself does) far from his teachings of Sathya (Truth), Dharma (Right Conduct), Shanti (Peace), Prema (Love) and Ahimsa (Non Violence).
Chris Allen’s Report On Australian Current Affair
In the case of violence, my readers can view the horrors of the hired thugs against former staff and present clients of SWARA (Sunshine Welfare and Remedial Association Inc) reported to be used by key Brisbane figures of the Sathya Sai Organization in Australia the Australian Current Affair report ‘Infiltrating a Cult’, shown last Monday night, February 2, 2009, on Channel NINEMSN. See frightening footage. Pictured on the left (below) is a leading Sai Baba matriach, Moyia O’Brien, who denies in the interview with Chris Allen that Sai Baba’s movement is religious. The famed wealthy ‘Pink Sister’ (or along with her late sister Dorothy O’Brien, one of the ‘Pink Twins’) says: “The Sai Organization is not a cult, it’s not even a religion. It’s a service organization”.
Sevicing disabled clients with brutal hired security guards is, perhaps, one way the servitors of the self-proclaimed fullest embodiment of God in human history may convincingly go about winning hearts and minds in his cause …
In a blog at https://barrypittard.wordpress.com coming very soon, clear documentation from her writings, speeches and testimony of others will be presented to show that her words are typical of other Sai Baba leaders in making misleading public statements. Click HERE or on Photo

Excerpt From Fairly Typical Report Of Sathya Sai Baba As Serial Sexual Molester of Boys and Young Men
From one who writes from the point of view of a graduated student in one of Sai Baba’s formost educational institutions:
“Swami, in my personal opinion is a homosexual being. There are several reasons for that:
1) He molests only boys and no girl so far has reported about a molestation experience.
2) He spends most of the time with men instead of with women.
3) Men around him are homosexuals- at least in varying degrees. I do not think that I need to give out names here.
4) He loves fondling young boys. 6-24 is the age group he chooses. He likes tall, slim, fair, handsome, girlish boys a lot.
5) I have repeatedly heard him say his favorite boys that marriage is bad and swami goes away from a boy’s life when he marries.
One of my friends had this sexual experience with swami and then never told any one about it. He got interviews many times and I used to wonder why is he so confused and flabbergasted every time he stepped out after the interview. I also saw him reluctant to come any more for darshan. He was afraid to sit there friend and started hiding a lot. So I began to suspect that something is going on and one day I confronted him. I clearly asked him if swami is molesting him. He beat around a bush for a while and then later realized that it is better to share the experience with someone else as it relieves some pain. He told me that swami used to rush towards him in the interview room and hug him and kiss him longingly in the mouth. Baba has the nasty habit of not only kissing but also sucking the lips of the victim. Then swami had oral sex and during this time would say “This is oneness with god, this is union with god”. My friend is like a girl in a lot of aspects like talking walking and speaking thus attracting “divine” attention. I also knew a wonderful human being called C. and he used to be a mandir boy. What it means is this guy slept in swami’s room. His life was a miserable and painful one. He had a porn star kind of a life with swami and he was so fed up with it that he nearly lost sanity. He finally found some caring woman and fled puttaparthy. Such is the situation with swami’s chosen boys. As for me, I never had a sexual experience with Swami but I believe my friends and trust them”.
