Decay presides over Miss Haversham’s ruined mansion, as in Sai Baba’s

Rotting House In Dickens' novel Great Expectations' redolent of decay in Sathya Sai Baba's Secret living Quarters

The decay now found in Sathya Sai Baba’s quarters, which he locked off from all his servitors, it appears, except his male lover and carer Satyajit, is nothing like the ‘Satwic’ (Pure) quality of which he constantly preached. One may be somewhat reminded of Charles Dickens’ novel ‘Great Expectations’, and the wealthy old Mrs Havisham’s wretchedly decrepit mansion, quietly rotting away, like she herself. Indeed, rotting just as Sathya Sai Baba’s reputation is now doing. And rotting just as he was doing for some time before he died on 24 April 2011. The newspaper article below reports:

“The Swiss and Danish chocolates and huge cache of dry fruits which have passed the date of expiry were also found by the team”.

Though in a higher tragic key than Miss Haversham, Shakespeare’s King Lear, came through the “wheel of fire” to an ephiphany. For Miss Haversham light floods in at the last. And the light-bearers are the two young people, Pip and Miss Haversham’s adopted daughter Estella. Sathya Sai Baba brought the downfall of a great many boys and young men. These poor boys and young men (though many have come from rich homes) were, so to speak, Sathya Sai Baba’s Great Expectorations, that is, spittle  – for he used them, and he spat them out. For them, he was the darkness-bearer, showering some spurious light so that he would seem otherwise than what he was.

Miss Haversham, in her perversion of love and in her unrequited pain, revenged against men by trying to proof Estella forever against them, because of her long-ago romantic undoing by the wretched criminal Compeyson. In Sai Baba’s case, there was a similarity with a difference: He perversely ensured that the great numbers of boys he sexually abused would not, forever, be able to function with females. Indeed, we have well-documented his true anti-female sentiments (despite his hypocritical carry-on in glorifying statements about ‘sacred Indian womanhood’, and so forth. See:

Ladies Day – Sathya Sai Baba vs. Women’s Day and true female emancipation

A Few of Sathya Sai Baba’s Confused and Traditional Views On Women

At the end, Miss Haversham – at last being able to see in a mirror the pain of unrequited love in Pip, who so loved Estella, as she loved him – was able to understand his pain through her own pain of rejection. She was then able to make a good repentence. She says to Pip:  “Until you spoke to [Estella] the other day, and until I saw in you a looking-glass that showed me what I once felt myself, I did not know what I had done. What have I done! What have I done!”.

But where was Sathya Sai Baba’s repentence? He who ruined countless lives!  He who cursed those who questioned his conduct! How could he see himself when he looked into his secret hoard of glittering treasure? Or into all the glitzy opulence that he erected around himself? How could he see his true self from aloft his gold chariot and his gold thrones? How could he see that the God whom he proclaimed himself to be has never, unless by sick minds, been linked to the notion of pedophilia? It is left – if at all they are capable of it – for the members of the Sathya Sai Central Trust and the members of the international Sathya Sai Organization to repent. Do they wish to pain to go on, endlessly? If so, we shall pursue these evildoers until they speak the plain truth, and begin to make practical, meaningful amends. The rank-and-file, from whom so much was hidden, could at least start of apologize to those whom they have so cruelly shunned and allowed to be vilified, defamed and libeled, even thought they always knew them as good persons. The likes of Robert Priddy and I shall be glad to pass along our networks any news of such changes springing from contrite hearts

             Sathya Sai Baba Demonized His Critics. He consigned them to eternal Hell

In his fulminating, so-called ‘Christmas Discourse’ of 2000, he dared to denounce with utter hypocrisy. Loudly thumping his lecturn, and cheered on by thousands of profoundly duped devotees, he denounced apostates from him as: demons’, ‘Judases’, and saying that there will never be, in no matter how many lifetimes, any salvation for these persons. Nothing could be a greater distortion of Christ’s teachings of peace, love, forgiveness and hope of atonement.

The persons (yes, they are actually decent and good human beings, most respected in throughout their communites!) he condemned, I should add, at great cost to themselves, spoke out about his homosexual and many other abuses. They may be able to forgive, but forgiveness is a debt owed to ourselves, which means an inner letting-go, and should not, as all too many so-called ‘spiritual people’ do in their systemic confusing of forgiving and forgetting, instead mean letting go, scot free, bullies, thugs and abusers.

Sathya Sai Baba is dead. But many of his close accomplices are not. One cannot sue and gaol him, but one can have a strong go at sueing and gaoling them. He was at all times backed by an organization which cannot pass any rudimentary test for accountability or duty of care. They talk compassion and deny it in their very actions. The way in which they have treated former devotees – always hitherto in good stead in the Sai Baba organization, until their began asking fair and reasonable questions – is truly appalling.

That is to say, the Sathya Sai Central Trust and the international Sathya Sai Organization, in regard to which entities we are working on ways to bring to some kind of justice via large-scale litigation and pursuit of Sai criminals. Indeed, gaol sentences where possible. A lot depends on whether our teams can work around a corruption endemic in sections of India’s government, political, justice and police systems.

Our advancing forces – thanks especially to Jai Narain and his fine legal team – though badly delayed by a judge’s Order in the State of Karnataka of mutual non-disclosure, now have brought about one conviction, a sentence of three years, for a close lieutenant of Sathya Sai Baba, a foremost teacher, whom our records show as having serially and cruelly molested many young males. We shall now sort a lot further through our check lists – one miscreant after another.

Whistleblowers, do make sure that you increasinly whistleblow! Survivors of abuses by those Sai officials did not protect you against, do demand the right to some healing and compensation for the terrible offences committed against you! And all who would be good citizens, and not lost in airy, fine-sounding, so-called ‘spiritual’ abstractions, please do send stark messages to offenders about our need to excercise practical compassion, duty of care, and apply democratic processes in governance of institutions.

Goods found believed to have been gifted by the devotees from across the world
Perfumes, sarees form Sai Baba’s inventory
Hyderabad, July 23, DHNS:
French perfumes, shampoos, shaving kits, Swiss chocolates, boxes full of imported dry fruits and silk sarees were some of the personal belongings of Sathya Sai Baba among an obscene amount of gold, silver and cash recovered at Yajurmandir.
Yajurmandir, the residence of Sathya Sai Baba and his aide Sathyajit, also threw light on the lifestyle of the godman, revered as the reincarnation of Shirdi Sai.“Baba used perfumes to smell good when he gave darshan to thousands of devotees, and gave personal interviews to dignitaries who will be sitting close to him,” recalled a devotee at Prasahanti Nilayam.While there is no brand-wise perfume list available with the revenue officers, they could recall latest and rarest kind of perfumes and toiletries stocked at Yajurmandir.The revenue officials of Anantapur district during the three rounds of inventory taking completed on July 20, also found thousands of pure silk sarees, dhotis and shirts at Yajurmandir. Baba used to present the sarees to a few select women devotees and also distribute among the volunteers who do free “seva” at Prashanti Nilayam. A large number of silver and gold “mangala sutrams” were also found during the inventory.

Electronic gadgets

“We also found electronic gadgets of various makes that one could dream of and around 5,000 watches that include Rado, Tag Heuer and mostly Swiss hand-made watches,” the awestruck revenue officials, who took part in the inventory sessions from June 2, said.

These goods believed to have been gifted by the devotees from across the world, indicate the love and affection they had for Sai Baba. The revenue officers also stumbled upon two gold garlands, each weighing 6-7 kg under a table.

The Swiss and Danish chocolates and huge cache of dry fruits which have passed the date of expiry were also found by the team.

“These might be gifted by devotees from abroad, but one wonders why they were not distributed and left to rot,” a senior officer from the revenue department deputed to  make inventory, recalled.

The inventory making, which still has to open the personal living quarter of Sathya Sai Baba.  The officials also found 40 pairs of saffron robes, 75 silver glasses each weighing 700 gm in a carton, thousands of gold rings and gold-plated fancy earrings.

Those of you who are psychologists, police etc., do kindly confer with your colleagues who specialize in body language, and voice prints. These are but a couple of forensic areas where those in the Sathya Sai Central Trust and International Sathya Sai Organization can, I assert, be soundly exposed, and our witnesses around the world be shown to be telling the truth. Large numbers of former followers and other critics of Sathya Sai Baba and his Cult have been branded liars and deceivers. These we are not, as we wish to put beyond doubt as cases come are heard in properly-constituted Courts of law, television interviews and so on.

Calling All Who Wish To Attest, In Public Or In Private, Against Sathya Sai Baba Cult

Posted by Barry Pittard on July 24, 2011

We very much have in mind going after many who have aided the profound Sathya Sai cult cover ups.

These include officials, past and present, in the Sathya Sai Central Trust, and the international Sathya Sai Organization, and the Sathya Sai Society of America, and officials in areas such as Indian local, state and central governments, past and present.

The miscreants should not make the mistake of thinking that their old methods of hiding and threatening and using their influence at levels of great political and government power will continue to succeed. Which is to say their use of tactics which would appall decent rank-and-file members of the international Sathya Sai Organization!

These power brokers and other miscreants should also think, correctly, that those involved in legal proceedings on our side have vast financial reserves. (Not of course illicitly and secretly hoarded up like their late guru did with treasures of almost unimaginable scores of millions of dollars worth).

Those offenders in India should think, correctly, that there are Indians at high levels indeed, among others, who are ready to assist us, and that we have already made meaningful plans with them.

The wrongdoers should all begin to think of their conscience. If they have one. And of the honor of their families. And of the feelings, too, of their peers in their professions, trades and wider communities.

They may like to consider that there could be avenues of repentance and even some kind of atonement for their own terrible deeds. These offenses include turning a blind eye to those around them who perpetrated the crimes and spiritual betrayals. Some persons may like to assist us substantively. They can write to Robert Priddy or me, Barry Pittard or Jay Narain c/o the Hunt and Hunt law firm, Australia, which is a distinctive leader in the legal world, and has strong outreach into South Asia.

But all should think of the awesome power of the subpoena. And of gaol sentences, one of which we have already secured – in the case of a foremost Sathya Sai Baba officials. There are many more of them in whom we have keen interest.

All of us should ask:  are we prepared to see our children – or see anyone else’s children – in education venues where teachers sexually and in other ways abuse them? Are we prepared to tolerate education authorities and trusts who, once alerted with compelling evidence, fail in their due diligence and duty of care.

And think, too, of the fact that the attention of many of the decent jurisprudential forces in India (and the interest from the law profession in the Commonwealth within which Indian law has close ties) will be, in these matters, increasingly alert to our large-scale challenge, in regard to the Sathya Sai cult, and to its aiding and abetting of corruption in the Indian judiciary.

And think, moreover, about the new and powerful tide of anti-corruption crusades in India. And, given these changes brought by vast public outcry, think of the more awakened forces for proper process within the Indian legal system.

Offenders in Sathya Sai Baba’s cult, and those who, who by their refusal to act with integrity, allowed their ascent, will need to consider the power of the international media. With our extensive cooperation, it has exposed the Sathya Sai cult and its late, former head, Sathya Sai Baba, in a manner that did the cult great damage. Its recruiting efforts (although it has long and misleadingly said that it does not recruit) have suffered badly. And, in consequence, Sathya Sai Centers have severely depleted. Some of its most prominent and respected leaders have resigned.

These damages, unless the Sathya Sai community comes to its senses, and acts with as much integrity as it can muster, can now fairly be expected to be a great many times compounded.

NOTE:

Calling all who are thinking of Class Action Litigation, Police Investigation, Whistleblowing, against Sathy Sai Baba interests, etc

By no means is pursuit of justice regarding the Sathya Sai cult confined to sexual abuse of boys and young men – extensive and of long duration though this has been. In the next days and months (and years, if that is what it takes)  Robert Priddy and I shall be detailing other types of grave wrongdoings about which, for long years, those in the Sai cult, or who subsequently left it, and others, have had deep concerns.

To begin with, so as to set up professional security systems, those who may wish to be informed of the legal options that they may wish to assist with can contact us. We give our promise of confidentiality and sensitivity – as has long been Robert Priddy’s and my case – towards those survivors and other witnesses to the Sathya Sai cult’s international and enormous derelictions of duty of care.

To do this assists us, our legal teams and the courts to act quickly, so as to make it more difficult for any who are bent on destroying evidence, or intimidating or bribing witnesses or attempting to destroy documents and money trails, and so forth.
