Isaac Tigrett. Wealthy Promoter of Superstition

Posted by Barry Pittard on October 15, 2008

Former head of the Norwegian Sathya Sai Organization Robert Priddy exposes a superstitious belief of Isaac Tigrett, one of Sathya Sai Baba’s key financial backers. Tigrett was an immensely wealthy U.S. citizen, who walks with some of the most powerful leaders in the world. Businesses he has built include famous institutions such as The Hard Rock Cafe and The House of Blues. He has contributed many millions to Sathya Sai Baba.

Isaac Tigrett. Secret Swami Cult’s immensely wealthy and hearty Laugher

Robert Priddy writes:

“Isaac Tigrett has stated that Sathya Sai Baba – who Tigrett worships as God Incarnate etc. etc. – gave him a crystal skull at an interview where the object just appeared in Sai Baba’s hands (as posted recently on my blog). Tigrett believes in the supernatural power of this skull and that cosmic balance depends on it (somehow) and that it carries a cosmic curse which can destroy the earth – as can be seen from the pages copied from the Internet below”

Tigrett Speaks To BBC Television On His Faith In Sathya Sai Baba

Similar Tigrett preoccupation with mystic fancy has been seen in the BBC documentary ‘The Secret Swami’ 2004, where Tigrett tells the presenter Tanya Datta:

“India’s so unique, it’s so incredible. If there’s a spiritual train then India is the engine. All this mysticism, all the strangeness that surrounds Sai Baba and all that stuff, this is the perfect home for it.”

Unlike other Sathya Sai Baba leaders, Tigrett the latter comes across as compassionate but his unusual and repeated laughter in the BBC documentary suggests his ultimate denial of feeling that needs to translate to humane action. Tanya Datta says,
“But even if it was proven to you that Sai Baba was a paedophile and a serial sex abuser, you’re saying it wouldn’t change the fact that he is your guru.”
Isaac Tigrett says,

“He could go out and murder someone tomorrow.”

Tanya Datta probes,

“Does that mean that some part of you believes there could be some truth to the rumours?” Tigrett replies,

“Oh, absolutely I believe there is truth to the rumours.”

But the practical effect – which is that Isaac Tigrett does nothing to advocate a hearing for Sathya Sai Baba’s accusers – is the same as if he did not believe in their truth! This immensely wealthy man, who walks with some of the most powerful leaders in the world, like Al Gore, blocks the chance of marginalized victims to effectively tell their stories. Clearly, his self-perceived spiritual development is all that matters. Therefore, he lends himself to one of history’s great cover ups. He may provide palatial buildings for Sai Baba but what about rebuilding broken people, and perhaps saving still others from coming to grief in the secret chamber of the ‘secret swami?

BBC’s ‘The Secret Swami’ and British Press Praise

Posted by Barry Pittard on July 27, 2008

Robert Priddy has bloggedUndisputable facts about Sathya Sai Baba by BBC’. This is a summary of a number of major factors that came out of BBC’s television documentary ‘The Secret Swami’ (2004) exposing Sathya Sai Baba and his worldwide cult. The documentary was seen by millions in around 200 countries. He cites a number of the many major British press reviews that highly praised this documentary, such as Andrew Billen, of The Times (of London), who wrote:-

“One of the richest supporters of the Indian guru Sai Baba – no less than Isaac Tigrett, co-founder of the Hard Rock Cafe – told his interviewer that he was perfectly willing to believe that Baba was simultaneously a) quite likely a paedophile and b) God incarnate”

See also The BBC’s ‘The Secret Swami’ – A Revision , written from the point of view of one who for several months was closely involved in coordinating witnesses for the BBC from around the world.

 Here is Tigrett’s statement to the BBC’s Tanya Datta in “The Secret Swami

Datta, Tanya

Tanya Datta: But even if it was proven to you that Sai Baba was a paedophile and a serial sex abuser, you’re saying it wouldn’t change the fact that he is your guru.

 Isaac Tigrett: Absolutely not. Absolutely not. He could go out and murder someone tomorrow, as I said, it’s not going to change my evolution, it’s not going to change the good things that have come out of my relationship down there.

 Tanya Datta: Does that mean that some part of you believes there could be some truth to the rumours?

Isaac Tigrett: Oh, absolutely I believe there is truth to the rumours.
