Puttaparthi Sai Baba Celebrates 85th Birthday

Sathya Sai Baba: Incredible Pomp In Poverty-Stricken IndiaGolden Glitter For Sai Baba's 83rd Birthday

 

On 23 November, 2010, devotees from around the world celebrate Sathya Sai Baba’s 85th birthday. Their consciences need to be challenged. They can be asked:  How can they lend themselves to such wasteful displays of pomp and ceremony? How can those of them who have so cruelly rejected their once dearly beloved fellow devotees, whom they knew over decades to be good and decent human beings, proclaim that they are, as Sai worshipers, devotees of Truth, Love and Right Action? How can those Indian government and other dignitaries, whom we know to have been apprised in detail of the many worldwide allegations against Sai Baba, look at themselves and their families with any honesty? Below is a minute list of powerful political figures and celebrities who have used their name and fame to buttress up Sathya Sai Baba, irrespective of probing investigations by e.g., the BBC.  See:

 For those prepared to look at a number of alternative views of how Sathya Sai Baba continues to bring India, in an aura of shame, to the notice of the world, the following is but the briefest selection of resources.

“President Pratibha Patil will attend  the birthday celebrations on Friday. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh be present at the Satya Sai University’s convocation on November 22. However, his tour was not yet finalised. The President will arrive in Puttaparti by 11.30 am in a special flight on November 19. Later she will address a women’s meet to be organised by the Eswaramma Mahila Samkshema Trust at Sai Kulawanth hall. After lunch, the President will leave for Delhi at 2.30 p.m. Prasanthi Nilayam is geared up for the visit of the VVIPs and the roads are teeming with devotees. Elaborate arrangements have been madefor the one lakh devotees expected on November 23. Around 120 free Annadanam counters would be opened at Puttaparti and Dharmavaram railway stations”.

The preamble to the article inspired by Sathya Sai Baba’s lavish 75 th Birthday celebrations states: “There is no doubt that the low turnout at his birthday celebrations were an indication of the Sai Baba’s falling clout as a result of charges of child sexual abuse and the inexorable flaking away of his worldwide empire.” Other instances of journalistic hype include a reference to 37 million followers and “It is common knowledge that … mafia dons alike are given immediate audience with the Sai Baba and move around freely within the ashram even when the police are around.”

They have suggested to the Sai Baba that he should travel abroad and hold sessions with devotees to kill rumours and counter increasingly murky publicity.

    Roman Catholics’ Deep Concern At Pope’s Apology. But He Is Way Ahead Of Indian ‘Pope’ Sathya Sai Baba

    Posted by Barry Pittard on March 23, 2010

    It is enormously instructive to watch the unfolding saga of papal apology for clergy sexual abuse. Large numbers of both Roman Catholics and others round the world have expressed deep dissatisfaction with the Pope’s apology. They say that it goes nowhere far enough, and does not address acute issues of crime and punishment. The Roman Catholic Church, like the international Sathya Sai Organization, has every reason to be afraid of sore depletions  of membership and finance, as well as moral standing in the world community.

    RC Abuse Priests Collared. Clergy sex revelation storms threaten worldwide

    RC Abuse Priests Collared. Clergy sex revelation storms threaten worldwide

    There have been many critical commentaries from within and far beyond the Roman Catholic Church. They make it clear that there are central issues of institutional power and control that prevent far-reaching and genuine reforms from taking place. Even when the methods of statecraft far exceed the spirit or even letter of an institution’s spiritual, ethical and moral aims, it is the long history of powerful institutions to use the apparatus of legalistic and other forms of self-protection. In other words, cover up. And, at best, cosmetic reform. For a glimpse at an ancien régime swinging into action, see The Times report: Vatican moves to distance Pope from abuse scandal. Richard Owen. Rome.

     

    Sorry Pope Indeed

    Sorry Pope

     

    What many Roman Catholics, including one of the greatest and outspoken theologians in Church history, Professor Hans Kung, and others are, in effect, asking is: why is this man so publically sorry now and not years ago, when he was cognizant of sexual abuses within his church?

    The Dark Pages That Have To Be Faced

    A secular example. The immediate past US President George  W. Bush’s name will stand forever darkened by his secret policy of “extraordinary rendition”, where prisoners deemed to be a threat to US security were spirited away to countries friendly to the US which routinely practise torture, so that the hands of US citizens would not personally be bloodied by the heinous acts then committed without the knowledge and consent of the American people at large.

    Again, cover up. Again, acknowledgement only when the forces of exposure have reached tipping point.

    Typically, among the lower orders of institutional membership, there are many who rationalize and justify an autocratic leadership’s  actions and instructions that appear to enhance or protect an institution. The rank-and-file do not act with the full knowledge, cynicism and realpolitik of those right at the nub of power. That this relative kind of ignorance, naivety, piety (or whatever form it takes) cannot, and should not, be used to plead excuse was made very clear in the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials that ran from 1945 to 1949.

    What of India’s shame?

    As we can see in recent weeks, there has been a public upsurge of concern at sex scandal revelations about high-powered religious figures in India. See: Nityananda Sex Scandal Erupts in India. Sathya Sai Baba Lessons? .

     
     

     

    Puttaparthi Sai Baba. Will soon rule world, he says

    Sathya Sai Baba will soon rule world, he says

    Note: The glitter of pure gold, and immense pomp and circumstance are the order of the day at Sai Baba’s ashram at Puttaparthi. See:

    It forever echoes in my mind how a then editor of The Times of India told me privately that Sathya Sai Baba is too powerful to take on. One irony was that one of the most powerful figures on the Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust – the former Chief Justice of India, P.N. Bhagawati, was at the same time on the Board of Directors of The Times of India. In fact, our group had to work extremely hard to get UNESCO senior management to cause the Press Trust of India (PTI) to make amends for publishing a gravely watered-down version of the UNESCO Media Advisory concerning Sathya Sai Baba and certain of his key officals. See:

    The Case of UNESCO’s Missing Media Advisory and BBC Caught UNESCO Head Bowing To Indian Government

    In India, a particularly lamentable fact that speaks  against religious institutions is that their scandals have often had to exposed by such courageous rationalists as the late Basava Premanand.  See:  Basava Premanand Long Challenged Indian Governments To Come Clean On Sathya Sai Baba and Basava Premanand. Vale. A fighter for truth who lived what others preach .

    Or, as anywhere in the world, by whistleblowers from’inside’ who undergo the most shameful attacks by those who proclaim to live by ‘Life, Love and Spirituality‘.

    Ireland Acts On Clergy Sexual Abuse. India Does Not Act On Sathya Sai Baba

    Excerpt from New York Times, Agencies Report

    Pope’s words of remorse fall flat for abuse victims

    JOHN BURNS, DUBLIN

    March 23, 2010

    “POPE Benedict XVI’s weekend apology to sufferers of sexual abuse at the hands of Catholic clergy in Ireland has drawn a deeply sceptical and angry response from many Catholics.

    In the apology – a pastoral letter read aloud at all weekend Masses across Ireland’s 26 Catholic dioceses and handed out in printed form to thousands of churchgoers – Benedict ex-pressed ”shame and remorse” to victims and their families for what he called ”sinful and criminal” acts by members of the clergy. But in the apology, the Pope did not require that Cardinal Sean Brady, the head of the Irish church, or any other church leaders be disciplined for their mistakes, as some victims had hoped

    Nor did he clarify what critics in Ireland and elsewhere have said are contradictory Vatican rules about the procedures for investigating abuse cases and church leaders’ responsibility to inform civil authorities about offences they uncover, a duty the Pope reiterated strongly in his letter.

    By remaining silent on the issue of punishment for top church figures implicated in what critics in Ireland have described as decades of cover-up, the pastoral letter appears to have done little to assuage the dismay and anger of many in Ireland at years of revelations about paedophile priests and child carers”.  NEW YORK TIMES, AGENCIES

    Most Former Sathya Sai Devotees Respond Without Hatred

    Posted by Barry Pittard on September 26, 2009

    Former followers of Sathya Sai Baba have noticed recurring features in the notes of Sai Baba defenders who write to us. The most common, by far, is reference to his purported miracles. This tendency is evident in writers whether more sophisticated or uneducated. This despite the advice of a great many spiritual teachers (including Sathya Sai Baba) of various traditions who say not to get hung up by phenomena such as miracles.

    Another common trait revealed is extreme attachment for Sathya Sai Baba’s form, which he himself has often also referred to as an obstacle to spiritual development.

    As pointed out in the article  Reply To Sathya Sai Baba Defender, most former devotees – leaving aside those few who have much-to-be regretted bad manners – do not respond nastily.

    Two writings that would invite the description: grace and self-restraint whilst under fire are by Timothy Conway Ph.D. and Al Rahm (both former prominent leaders in the Sathya Sai Baba movement). See:

    The crucial John Hislop letters, Sathya Sai Baba, & Sathya’s defender Joe Moreno

    Al Rahm’s Explanatory Letter

    When those who are now former devotee were engaged in their transitional discovery process – for example, speaking to individuals and famililies with shocking accounts of abuse by Sathya Sai Baba and/or some of his core servitors – they came up with the same questions that some devotees would now aim at them. And, at an earlier stage, when unquestioning devotees, they used the same defences of Sathya Sai Baba when questions were raised by others.

    Here is a quite typical note from a defender of Sathya Sai Baba, and the reply from one who is no longer partial to him. The writer had written a number of emails to the recipient, who did not retaliate to any of the points. Some of the language of the other emails was couched more unkindly than anything in the following. The former devotee responded because of the basic decency and sincerity, nontheless, of the person who wrote:

    “All your articles written on your websites ( Anti-Sai Baba) seem to be an old type of fairy tales similar to what we have been seeing as a kid in our kindergarten days. The difference in presentation lies in its depth, of hate and malice. The idea of molest is a great hoax to discredit Swami, that’s for sure. When you compare Baba’s materialization of vibuthi and other manifestation as a stage show similar to what magician can do, is very puzzling. Swami’s divine manifestation of vibuthis and other religious artifacts etc;  in various part of the world is a fact. How do you answer to that? There is no need for anyone to cheat on this. It’s a world wide phenomena going on for decades. It’s not a simple paranormal activity. What about prayers? How do you answer to those prayers which Swami has responded to his devotees? How could this be possible, if not for His divine grace? Do not make sweeping allegations. Swami teaches love, not hate. Do take care”

    Response (by former longtime devotee of Sathya Sai Baba, who had considerable responsibilities in his service)

    “I think that I understand your harsh judgements on us and the driving of very important questions. For many former devotees have had to raise, amid great anguish, the same issues that you raise. Many of them spent years of great devotion for Sathya Sai Baba and dedicated service in the various wings of his organization. How there can be such an incredible anomaly between the uplifting experiences which you have mentioned – which many former devotees have also experienced – and the stark opposites is a very great mystery.

    However, what may appear as hatred in the eyes of one devoted is not hatred. It is speaking out the facts as we have best been able to determine them.No doubt,reading such claims can be very upsetting for devotees. That is most understandable. Some have viewed it as a challenge to their own sadhana of calmness and steadfastness.

    One of Sathya Sai Baba’s key teachings – and that of many spiritual teachers down the millennia, as you will be aware from your 34 years of sadhana – is to learn to distinguish the form from the formless. When we human beings become defensive about the form, does it not mean that we are very attached to it?

    I notice in your prior emails that you have made much of the miracles, and yet Sathya Sai Baba, in his spoken words, has placed a very small value on them. Do not we human beings also become very attached to such manifestations, which are rupa (embodiment), as well.

    Do you not think that many former devotees pray? And have lovely spiritual experiences? If we were to be motivated by hatred, do you think that I would write to you (just as other former devotees write to devotees who have written to us) with patience and respectfulness?

    Many sweeping allegations, including your own, have been made about large numbers of former devotees, including, I may repeat, some who were important and much-respected leaders in the Sathya Sai Organization, who continue to be loved and respected in their various walks of life”.

    Sathya Sai Baba Man Gerald Moreno and Fact-Changing

    Posted by Barry Pittard on August 19, 2009

    Surely one of the worst cases of Internet defamation is that of the Gerald ‘Joe’ Moreno. It is known that he cooperates with certain who are around Sathya Sai Baba, and both prominent and rank-and-file members in general. There is evidence that his recipient list is several (it is said, fifteen plus) thousand.

    The Sathya Sai Organization has to face many hard facts. Any lack of courage will not help. One of these facts is that organization members support Moreno, who constantly uses language of a kind that Sai Baba’s own discourses abundantly inveigh against. This participation by members more than suggests a desperation by many of his devotees to see their guru defended at any cost. The ‘Sathya’ – or Truth – that he allegedly stands for has been thrown to the winds.

    I direct my readers to an article just posted by Robert Priddy, retired academic of the University of Oslo and former head of the Sathya Sai Organization in Norway. See his professional Wikipedia entry. His highly-organized and excellently linked main website is: Sathya Sai Baba In Word And Action. He writes:

    … “the pro-Sai extremist Joe Moreno claims that ‘anti-Sai activists’ withheld the transcript of the second part of a phone conversation which David Bailey had with Thomas Wiehe of Sweden. This is entirely untrue. Both parts of the phone conversation were transcribed from the start (see here and here), and both were on-line too here and here).” Source: Moreno’s deception re David Bailey Phone Conversation

    Posted by robertpriddy on August 17, 2009.  See also Priddy’s article:

    The Gerald Joe Moreno dossier – part 1

    Moreno’s Incessant Attacks on Many Who Have Stood Forth

    That so many who are now former devotees spent decades of their lives in the utmost dedication to humble and devoted service within or beyond his Sathya Sai Organization counts for nothing. Often at first hand in their (then) own Sai centers and amongst their extended network of Sai Baba devotees country-wide and world-wide, many investigated the allegations against Sathya Sai Baba of sexual abuse of boys and young men, and many other serious, sometimes criminal allegations, such as the ashram and Indian government cover up of the killings in Sathya Sai Baba’s private quarters. See:

    Senior Indian Policeman (Rtd) Speaks Out About Sathya Sai Baba Murders Cover Up

    Further discussion of the executions at Sathya Sai Baba’s ashram in 1993

    New Zealand Lawyer Exposes Official Cover Up of Killings In Sathya Sai Baba Bedroom Killings

    However, some went further, and looked e.g., at the issue of the killings in his private quarters in 1993 and the massive ashram and government cover up that came into play. Indeed, there was an earlier flurry of leave-taking from his fold than the large exodus furthered by major media exposure circa 2000 and after.

    Gerald Moreno and his Sathya Sai Baba Organization helpers do terrible injustice to the primary victims of abuse and murder and other crimes, and to these many who became deeply concerned about the compellingness of the allegations have long been widely respected in their own wider communities. As indeed they had been respected – and in some cases topmost leaders – when in the Sathya Sai Organization. They acted very far from the disgruntlement that Sathya Sai Baba and his leaders mendaciously tell their membership.

    Many members have stood aside stifling their consciences. They have perpetrated a great injustice. They have let so many of those whom they for so many years loved and honored be execrated and defamed. History will not be forgiving of them. Perhaps, as occurred in examples like Nazi Germany, their own children will one day confront them.

    Those who have dissented have acted with the responsibility and sense of duty that belong to conscience and good citizenship everywhere. From that moment they stood apart they have been reviled, shunned, and made subject to endless false witness. That the Sathya Sai Organization allows its members to work in with Gerald Moreno will continue for long to bring it the utmost discredit. Although the title of his main sites is: ‘Sathya Sai Baba Love, Light and Spirituality’, its extreme use of disgraceful language portrays its very lack of these qualities. See my:

    Sathya Sai Baba Love, Light and Spirituality Exposed

    Readiness of Former Devotees to Subject Themselves To Media and Juridical Processes

    There are many former devotees who have long stood ready to cooperate with police forces and major institutions such as UNESCO. See: The Case of UNESCO’s Missing Media Advisory in democratic countries and well reputed investigative media such as the BBC, Times of London, The Telegraph, The Guardian, The Age and others in India, Europe and Canada.

    From first to last, the Sathya Sai Baba Organization which has badly failed, to submit to bona fide, proper fora for accountability and transparency. See:

    Brian Steel, whose important writings on Sathya Sai Baba-related issues are noted for scholarly caution in the use of words, has described Gerald Moreno as an Internet “bully” and “demagogue”. I may add that a psychologist who works with one of Australia’s most respected services, observing some of Moreno’s output, responded, “This is classic bullying”. See:

    Serious Defamation Attempt By Gerald Moreno Defeated

    Gerald ‘Joe’ Moreno Banned By Wikipedia Authorities

    A senior Wikipedia Arbitration Committee has banned Gerald Moreno. The independent and respected British scholar Kevin Shepherd has noted:

    “In March 2007, Gerald Joe Moreno (alias SSS108) was banned indefinitely from Wikipedia after transgressing against one of the administrators who had warned him. The official report relates that he was voted against unanimously by the six arbitrators in the case. See the Wikipedia file Requests for arbitration/Sathya Sai Baba 2. The vote meant that he was banned from editing the Sathya Sai Baba entry and related articles or talk pages.Two of his colleagues (named elsewhere as Lisa de Witt and Simon Brace) were also banned in this manner”.

    There is a Public Petition calling for official probing of Sai Baba and his Sathya Sai Organization. (See website details at the end of this post).

    The JUST (Just Seekers of Truth) petition is presented by a globally networked group of former followers of Sathya Sai Baba. In the ranks of both devotees and dissenters, there are those who say that Sai Baba is history’s most powerful guru. Some critics regard him as one of history’s arch deceivers – highly charismatic, highly flawed. He may brilliantly inspire good social uplift works, which is why so many earnest and good people are attracted to him, but profoundly conceals, along with his core servitors who keep an vice-like grip on his global organization, what is morally loathsome and criminal.

    Sathya Sai Baba’s Failed Moon Miracle Under Heavy Cloud

    Posted by Barry Pittard on May 23, 2009

    An article that has continued to gain many ‘hits’ long months after the posting at: https://barrypittard.wordpress.com is: 

    Sai Baba To Be Seen In Moon? But Where Was Moon?

    The almost acrobatic contortions of Sai Baba’s defenders are well-nigh tortuous to read. Perhaps they impart some kind of imagined bliss to those who habitually refuse to look carefully at the evidence against him. To scholars or other students of the Procrustean nature of cultist defence, issues like this provide a fertile area of scrutiny: 

    rationalization, psychological denial, demonizing of critics, distortion of critics’ facts and arguments, absence of self-questioning, group-think, euphoric states imagined to be Joy, Bliss, Love, Life and Spirituality, etc., …

    The blog referred to above was posted in the same month as Sathya Sai Baba’s extraordinary statement (via his close aide and frequent translator Professor Anil Kumar on October 4) that he would give ‘visvarupa darshanam’ on the moon. He also turned up a while later in his car that same night, when the sky was cloud-covered! and the police, as reported in the media, had a serious time preventing threats to life and limb in all the milling of the crowds who had rushed to the designated site, the airport.  It is but one of many Sai Baba declarations and predictions that have been falsified. Let his followers take deep breaths and gaze steadily upon the facts. They cannot. They dare not. It is easier to vilify those who present the facts. A fact which, with whatever intellectual honesty, people like Joe Moreno and Dr G. Venkatarman do not appear likely, with other than heavy blinkers, ever to deal with. See:

    Sathya Sai Baba Man Joe Moreno’s Diabolizing Photo Alterations of Sai Baba Critics

    The principal internet critic of Sathya Sathya Sai Baba critics (beside Dr G.Venkataraman) is Gerald Joe Moreno of New Mexico, USA.  He virtually lives in virtual reality – if reality it is.

    The title of Moreno’s main blogsite is, one may – virtually – overjoyed to learn: Sathya Sai Baba – Love, Life and Spirituality.

    For the last few years, day after day (and night, of course), he has made countless attacks of various kinds on practically anyone who has raised his and her voice in criticism of the idol of Moreno’s life, Sathya Sai Baba. The ‘maturity’ of these endeavours questions the support given to Moreno by both leading Sathya Sai Baba and rank-and-file personnel, including members of the International Sathya Sai Organization

    But one example of Moreno’s disparaging ‘art’ and ‘craft’ is that against Sanjay Dadlani, whose University authorities have been beset with material that Moreno has sent to vilify and destroy this young man. So as to concentrate on his studies heading towards a Ph.D in neuro-Psychology, Dadlani  has, for a considerable time, withdrawn (since early August, 2008, I think) from the exposure of Sathya Sai Baba. He has gained his BSc. and MSc.  That fact has not stopped Moreno’s relentless pursuit of him. Clearly, Moreno wants to destroy his career, just as he tried to destroy the business of a courageous young woman who has built up a business of integrity and love – see quotation below from: Sai Baba Hatchet Man Picks On A Young Child.

    See, companion piece to this blog: Sathya Sai Baba Man Gerald Moreno’s Photo Attack On Robert Priddy

    It is extraordinary, especially given Sathya Sai Baba’s spiritual teachings about truth, right conduct, peace, love and non-violence.   Even the few brief words in hundreds, if not thousands, of Gerald Moreno’s Google entries contain ‘hot’ words and phrases, full of aggressive denigration. These references, which Moreno has often highly manipulated through his technical Internet skills, lead to his nest of blogsites and websites containing his unceasing attacks and libels. Quite as extraordinary in its own way is the fact that his main blogsite is called:  ‘Sathya Sai Baba – Love, Life and Spirituality’. These are sometimes drawn from his very nasty – although he is at first, ostensibly, befriending and pleasant – personal social harrassments against those who call for proper third party investigation of Sathya Sai Baba and certain of his core leaders in the international Sathya Sai Organization.

    Gerald Moreno is a man whom no fewer than eight Wikipedia editors banned indefinitely from that encyclopedia. See the independent British scholar Kevin Shepherd’s account: Wikipedia, Moreno, Google.  See also:  Sathya Sai Baba Man Gerald Moreno – Banned By Eight Wikpedia Editors

    Once Shepherd spoke, he too was marked for Moreno’s strenuous attacks, full of inaccuracy, based on Moreno’s highly typical rush to judgement and poor argumentative capacities. One of Moreno’s most constant resorts is argumentum ad hominem, attack upone persons instead of dealing with the issues).

    In case legal actions and/or media interest occur, Moreno’s and the Sathya Sai Organization libels of many decent and upright members of wider communities throughout the world, are being recorded. Evidence of Moreno’s connections with those close to Sathya Sai Baba, as well as various members of the Sathya Sai Organization will be provided to bona fide investigators well-respected in the international community.

    Quote from Robert Priddy blogsite at http://robertpriddy.wordpress.com from the article Sai Baba Hatchet Man Picks On A Young Child.

    “It has also been Moreno’s method to attempt to destroy the business of a woman on which the well-being of herself and her young children depend. He has attempted, using Internet methods, to divert business away from her. By highly partial, faulty reasoning and the leaping-to-conclusion, he has presented her as cooperating with the exposure of the Sathya Sai sect. Of course, whether she had been or not, a dirty trick played against her is nonetheless a dirty trick. Although she is not now devoted to Sai Baba, having taken down her photos and stopped singing his bhajans and so forth, she has not cooperated with her former partner’s exposure activities, as has been a fact well-known to Sai Baba devotees known to her”.

    Sathya Sai Baba Man Gerald Moreno’s Photo Attack On Robert Priddy

    Posted by Barry Pittard on May 8, 2009

    ‘Sathya Sai Baba – Love, Life and Spirituality’ is the title of surely one of the most  scurrilous sites of the Internet. Should any Sathya Sai Baba devotee wish to assure themselves that no definition of  ‘Life, Love and Spirituality’ would fit the (to put the matter mildly!) voluminous writings of Sai Baba chief defender on the Internet, they need administer a five to ten minute test: randomly consult even the titles in the Urls (links) and note the abundance of ‘hot’, derogatory and calumnious words. Many links of these heavily libelous attack articles are listed – and yet are but a tiny indication of his protean activities –  See:  Sathya Sai Baba Casebook-Factsheet 

    The following three Gerald Joe Moreno hand-crafted distortions of Robert Priddy are from Moreno’s questionably-named blogsite ‘Sathya Sai Baba – Life, Love and Spirituality’.

    Sathya Sai Baba Man Gerald Moreno's Photo Attack On Robert PriddyNeedless to say, terms like “blathering” are not those of Robert Priddy, former longtime leader of the Norwegian Sathya Sai Organization, nor of any self-respecting former devotee or other critic of Sathya Sai Baba and his sect. They are words typical of, and rife in the writings of, Gerald Joe Moreno of New Mexico, USA. The latter’s work might lend itself to a study of extreme attachment – so inveterate as to be crass, unconscionable, defamatory and blind – to the idol of a belief system incapable of questioning itself. 

    See companion piece to my present blog at: Sathya Sai Baba Man Joe Moreno’s Diabolizing Photo Alterations of Sai Baba Critics. (Note:  Perhaps the vitriol of the depiction of Sanjay Dadlani owes to the fact that Dadlani (which I and others have tried to persuade this young man against) has, apart from some very intelligent, hard-working and perceptive exposures of Sai Baba and his sect, been far from polite in his criticisms of Moreno. However, there is whole pattern of tit-for-tat in Moreno, who clearly subscribes to the notion that two wrongs make a right – which is far removed from the spiritual teachings of Sathya Sai Baba, among a great many other ethical teachings. One of Moreno’s many slipshod arguments, too, is assert (and this in a highly systematic way) that because some former devotee critic believes this or that, then there is homogenous opinion among,  typically, other former devotees – or “Anti-Sais” as he likes, constantly, to label them).

    It will not become a popular pastime to withstand such constant attack as the somewhat (late) Senator Joe McCarthy-like Moreno makes, but there are some who will not bend to his constant purposes, such as to bully, scare, demean and distort. See two excellent articles on Moreno by the scholar and author (whose writings were much regarded circles until he spoke out) in Bibliography and Linguistics, Brian Steel

    Diversionary Tactics by an Internet Demagogue.

    Evidence of an Internet Activist in Action: Gerald ‘Joe’ Moreno

    Anyone who questions Moreno’s cult idol, the Puttaparthi Sai Baba, must expect Moreno’s attacks on their family, including those who are not involved in the Exposure of Sathya Sai Baba. See Robert Priddy’s article:

    Moreno: anonymity and the dark – or love, light & spirituality?

    Quote:

    “Another example of Moreno’s disingenuous policy involves the picture he posted of my son (and I) on his abuse pages at saisathyasai.com , which he doggedly refused to remove, compounding his sin by making dirty attack pages against my son based on what other persons have done with whom he was associated in a band for a year or so”.

    Sai Baba Hatchet Man Picks On A Young Child

    Quote:

    “This maliciousness is further evidenced in Moreno’s conscienceless naming of a young child. This boy, out of childlike curiosity, googled his own name, and found (Moreno’s) viciously aimed barbs at the father whom he loves. This is a man, moreover, who has for years remained unprovoked by Moreno’s constant and extreme vilifications.  Indeed, he has all along recommended to other former devotees whom Moreno has attacked not to retaliate or at least if bent on doing so to avoid malice and heated language”

    Moreno’s is a hatred that calls others the haters. It is a poverty of proper argumentation that strikes out and says that all others are impoverished, including some of the world’s top journalists – in the BBC in the case of the searing documentary ‘The Secret Swami’, Dominic Kennedy and his investigative team of The Times of London,  Mick Brown of The Telegraph (who traveled to the USA to investigate extensively), the team of India Today, Michelle Goldberg of Salon.com (who traveled to India), Padraic Murphy of The Age, Paul Lewis in The Guardian, and many other writers and organs critical of Sathya Sai Baba, his officials and sect. 

    Former Devotees Have Lives. Gerald Moreno Mostly Lives On The Internet

    Moreno’s everywhere apparent deficiency of civil discourse is one that attacks the slightest shred – real or imagined – of incivility in former devotees, most of whom are widely regarded in  their professions, trades and wider communities as being very different indeed to what Moreno almost daily for the last few years has depicted.

    Gerald Moreno lives on the Internet, but, very typically, former devotee activists have lives. In fact, lives in which unselfish service in the community, as well as to family, plays a vital role – as it for so many decades has. Networked former devotees have long included those of many backgrounds, e.g., Hindu, Moslem, Christian, Jewish,  Rationalist, Humanist, etc., and come from a wide array of cultures. They deeply disdain Moreno’s constant attempts to tar-brush former devotees with slurs such as being pro-fundamentalist Christian, pro-pornography, inciting of terrorists, and so on. See:

    Gerald Moreno – Christian Fundamentalists, Anti-Semitism, Fascism

    Terrorist-related Slurs Used By Sai Baba Internet Fanatic

    Among countless other attacks of various kinds – the maturity of which questions the support given to Gerald Joe Moreno both leading Sathya Sai Baba and rank-and-file personnel, including members of the International Sathya Sai Organization

    Sathya Sai Organization: World Communities Need To Treat This Sect Cautiously

    Posted by Barry Pittard on April 30, 2009

    Typical of cultists (which they deny themselves to be), the key leaders of the international Sathya Sai Organization are highly secretive, authoritarian and unaccountable.

    They know:

    • That there has been profound cover up of countless responsibly-made allegations of spiritual and moral betrayal
    • The quality, and years of dedicated service, of many families and individuals who have gone to them with deeply distressing concerns about Sai Baba’s immoral conduct with boys and young men, cover up of murders in his bedroom, and other crimes.
    • That the top echelon exerts strong pressure to ensure that the allegations are not discussed

    The BBC’s appellation ‘the secret swami’ was entirely apt. Sathya Sai Baba and his leaders speak constantly of Truth, Right Conduct, Peace, Love and Non-Violence (Sathya, Dharma, Shanti, Prema, Ahimsa).  Many within the Sathya Sai Organization know perfectly well that devotees have often been shocked by the unspirituality, callousness and authoritarian behaviour by many core leaders hand-picked by Sai Baba himself.

    These leaders, and their often unsuspecting and decent rank-and-file, would link up with you, smile happily with you, act in a manner that has every appearance of professional and ethical responsibility. They seek to enter into shared endeavours with you in regard to your schools, universities, civic,  religious, cultural and sporting organizations, your municipal, state and central governments, etc. They do worthy works of social uplift, but in fact they have agendas that they keep from you. That is to say,  salient information – that you have every right to know – they keep under tight seals of prohibition as instructed by the guru and his core servitors. They do not tell you that:  Sathya Sai Baba claims to be the fullest incarnation of Godhood ever to have visited earth. Or that he has said he will rule the world before he leaves it circa 2022.  Officials are told not to mention it in their public interfaces.

    Just a few of the plush venues in which the Sathya Sai Organization pursues its recruitments (although it will not use this factual word) have included:

    Cooper’s Union, New York; Town Hall, Melbourne; Copley International Conference Center, San Diego; Super Dome, Sydney; La Mirada Theatre, Hilton Ballroom (both Los Angeles); Sheraton Hotel & Towers, Chicago; Copley International Conference Center, San Diego; Super Dome, Sydney, etc.

    We are reliably informed that the cult has furthered its purposes in nodes of great power such as the United Nations and the White House, and among leading politicians and powerbrokers around the world.

Its foremost leaders silence all those who question it- and never face substantive criticisms. For the first time – after six years of pained and guilty silence – since hundreds of long-term devotees left it in disgust – the Sathya Sai Organisation has found it necessary to try to defuse the debate about Sathya Sai Baba’s alleged crimes, deceits and fraudulence. Dr. Venkataraman’s tendentious cover-up article expresses untruths which have long circulated within the cult, giving an opportunity to confront him with facts and truth”

    Sathya Sai Baba and his Organization Permit Attacks On Ex-followers

    Posted by Barry Pittard on March 14, 2009

    An article at the blogsite of Robert Priddy, former longtime leader of the Sathya Sai Organization in Norway, notes that those who have more recently quit report no cases where Sai Baba or his organization have attempted to stop the libels in which members are implicated.

    Sai Cultists Stultify Their Hearts

    Many members of the Sathya Sai Organization have for years known, loved and respected those who subsequently have investigated the allegations and anomalies. That they can turn such a blind eye, and so stultify their hearts, and yet still claim to be loving and truthful shows them to be of a group that communities and institutions throughout the world need to be most wary of.

    As previously chronicled, Sai Baba’s and his organization’s hidden agenda is that he is to take over the world and rule it before circa CE 2022:

    ‘Secret Swami’ Cult Recruits At Prime Public Venues

    The Secrecy The ‘Secret Swami’ Demands of Devotees

    Devotees are told not to mention this projected so-called Sai revolution in the whole world in any of their public interfaces. A very recent example of a major Sai cult leader lying about the religious nature is that of Moyia O’Brien, wealthy director of a Sathya Sai Organization front called SWARA (Sunshine Welfare Remedial Association), when interviewed by a senior investigative journalist Chris Allen in a top Australian television program ‘A Current Affair’. The sacked staff, to whom tribute had hitherto been paid, along with many clients have felt a terrible betrayal by Moyia O’Brien of her late sister Dorothy O’Brien, whom they loved and trusted for her professionalism, quite beside her pronounced qualities of compassion and understanding. Moyia O’Brien promptly summoned violent security personal and the dissenting staff and disable clients were badly shaken by the hideous response that millions of television viewers in Australia were able to see and judge for themselves. Was this the ‘Sathya’, ‘Right Conduct’, ‘Peace’, ‘Love’ and ‘Non-violence’ that Sai Baba and his devotees are forever proclaiming …?

    Resemblance of The Sai Autocracy To Common Bullies

    How did the cult go about subsequent damage mitigation? As it usually does – by threats against Ninemsn, which succumbed to them, we have been informed by a reliable, well-placed media insider. Other leading media in Australia – SBS, The Age, The Advertiser, (perhaps the West Australian but the journalist is keeping ‘Mum’) and other parts of the world, including the BBC, CBC (Canada), Times of London, Telegraph, Guardian, CanWest (Canada), India Today and others have stood up to Sai Baba’s extremely wealthy and powerful emissaries with their threats. I myself am among those who have been strongly threatened – in my case by Sri T. Ramanathan, recent very pompous and autocratic former head of the Sathya Sai Baba Organization in Australia. One must not so much as eye-blink in the face of these inconscienable figures, who bully like common thugs.

    Moyia O’Brien’s mendacious and outright denial of the religious or cultic status of the Sathya Sai Organization is plain to anyone who watches the video segment, which my reader can do by clicking this photo:

    that show two forms of magic – that of delight and wonder;  and that of the utmost cheating for which succeeding generations of Indians will necessarily sheet home blame to Sathya Sai Baba and his fauning underlings for tainting their country which has for so long abounded in wonderful examples of genuine saintliness:
