The Sathya Sai Cult – A Moral Low Ground Wilderness

Posted by Barry Pittard on June 8, 2012

Deeply corrupt himself, and with an inner circle of corrupt men in support, Sathya Sai Baba was in no good shape to forge the universal spiritual and ethical transformation of which he so often spoke.

United Nations and human rights studies reveal an India steeped in endemic corruption and social injustice. He who said that he would transform the whole world in his own lifetime died in a morass of shame. This was so great that, for once, his spin doctors, backroom hacks, editorial weeders, and devotees placed in countless positions of great power were not able to prevent the facts from being reported in an Indian media that for so long had almost entirely suppressed reports unfavourable to him. See:

In countries where we can still look to many judges for the utmost probity, such an individual as  one of Sai Baba’s long-serving Sathya Sai Central Trust members, Ex-Chief Justice of India, P.N. Bhagwati, would long ago have been exposed. He now has to live out his last remaining days in great ignominy before a nation today far better apprised of the Sathya Sai cult corruptions.

I am at present working on a song, which recalls to my mind but a few of the corruptions that ALL our societies are falling to deal with, and which Sathya Sai Baba and his core servitors and other aiders and abettors, because he and they were so corrupt, were not on any moral high ground to address.


Haul Them In!   Barry Pittard. 7 June 2012

It’s all too little, and it’s all too late

– When the horse has bolted –

To bolt the gate

It’s all too late to cap a stormwater drain

When a soul’s fallen through

To be never seen again

There’s Pisser the Pervert out stalking our kids

If we don’t haul him in

If we don’t haul him in

If we cower, if we shrink, what will our kids think?

What must our kids think?

Of us – our kids think?

When it’s all too late to cap a stormwater drain

When a kid’s fallen through

To be never seen again

There’s Putrid the Pornster and Venom the Pedlar

They want us to cheapen till we’re creepin’ on our knees

Till they weaken when we need them but we’re creepin’ on our knees

These crooks look pretty pleased, and say how stupid we are

How stupid we are

How stupid we are

And it’s all too little, and it’s all too late

– When the horse has bolted –

To bolt the gate

When it’s all too late to cap a stormwater drain

When your soul’s fallen through

To be never seen again

And there’s Bloater the Bureaucrat with Lacky Lick Spittle

Who slick us with figures

Statistical figures

And knock off like skittles all those who blow the whistle

All those who blow the whistle

Heroes – who blow the whistle

When our eyes ignore the dirty domain

The heroes fall through

Till they’re silenced – again

As for pretty Doctor Spin and Spy Tsar The Husher

If we don’t rein them in

If we don’t rein them in

They’ll haul us all in like in old Soviet Russia

Old Soviet Russia

Old Soviet Russia

Will we all be too little? Will we all be too late?

– When the horse has bolted –

To bolt the gate

Will we all be too late to cap a ditchwater drain

Will the soul ditch down

To be never see again?

‘Cause it’s all too little, and it’s all too late

– When the horse has bolted –

To bolt the gate

It’s all too late to cap a stormwater drain

When your soul’s fallen through

To be never seen again

Dr John Hislop. Vaunted ‘Perfect Disciple’ of Sathya Sai Baba

Posted by Barry Pittard on November 6, 2011

Like so many devotees, especially those close to Sathya Sai Baba, ex-foremost leader of the Sathya Sai Organization (outside India), the Dr John Hislop knew very well that Sai Baba told lies.

Devotees, however, pass these off as, variously, “Baba’s funny little ways”; “his sparing of our feelings”; his “Leelas” (meaning his ‘divine sportiveness’ …. When writing, they use a capital ‘L’); “his perfect ‘Truth’, but our human imperfection” which cannot see that he is teaching us some profound lesson, such as, in learning detachment; and more such Procrustean wracking of human reason and commonsense. Sai Baba long exhorted that his devotees:  “Love (him) for (his) Mystery”. (Of course, his editors and other devotee writers capitalized the ‘h’ in ‘him’ and ‘his’) …..

Hislop also well knew that many devotees Sai Baba confused many with his many lies, all his predictions which failed, as did so many of his promised cures and e.g., promises of placements at his university or his colleges, of apartments in the ashram, and so forth. Therefore, in his books and talks (he travelled to various countries as Sathya Sai Baba’s foremost emissary outside India), Jack Hislop needed to come up with covering explanations.

I didn’t get to know Hislop at all well. My acquaintance was primarily via a meeting I arranged (the idea of which was to attract from among the international devotee base the gift of books, audio-visual teaching aids, and so on). This was when I lectured in English at the Sathya Sai college outside Bangalore. But my impression was that of many who did knew him, who thought him sincere. In so many devotees, sincerity is writ large – but it hides the fact that a psychology of self-deception is powerful.

The ‘Select Readings’ cited below show how Hislop, and the top leadership in the U.S. Sai Baba hierarchy (and the incredibly docile lower-echelon leadership worldwide), covered up the seriousness of allegations of Sai Baba’s serial sexual abuse of boys and young men. No doubt, they seriously and sincerely thought they were doing the right thing. At the same time, they were guilty of the most extraordinary lack of duty of care towards those they had until now, for years, honored and respected.

(“Seeking Divinity” Dr. J. S. Hislop, Sri Sathya Sai Books & Publications Trust. 1998, p. 210)

———————

John Hislop’s Successor, Dr Michael Goldstein of Covena, southern California, USA, is now world leader of the international Sathya Sai Organization, which Sai Baba said is THE divine organization on earth.   But it is a multi-billion dollar organization with iron-clad, cultic rules. Goldstein exploded with unprovoked anger, not realizing that the BBC had a hidden camera trained on him ….

Sathya Sai Saga: Points Lost Among Big Sathya Sai Trust Reassurances of Transparency

Posted by Barry Pittard on June 30, 2011

Some random points:

There is glaring contradiction between statements of Srinivasan, who has admitted Trust involvement in extraordinary movements of cash, and of R.J. Ratnakar, who says that the money is actually from 12 donors. And can be explained.

But how does one explain Trust workers clandestinely moving – in a van and in a bus – such vast amounts? In fact, right on the heels of the discovery of multi millions of cash, gemstones and other valuables secreted in walls and ceiling spaces and wherever else in Sai Baba’s bedroom? One may smile at the sheer gall, if not the dark arts of it all. Who are these donors? If the donations were genuine, what sort of security did they get for all their no doubt hard-earned money? An armoured vehicle? Nothing of the sort. Just the two Trust agents, the brothers Shetty,  one in a Qalis van, the other, at a different time, in a passenger bus.

Where, too, has gone any semblance of the Sathya Sai Central Trust’s duty of care for the safety of life and limb of its  workers on a money transportation assignment fraught with danger? This, in an area with trained eyes not only of individual criminals, criminal gangs, and private armies of feudal landlords but of ubiquitous, highly organized, armed political struggle groups such as the Naxalites (with countless splinter groups), the so-called Peoples’ War Group or PWG, etc. Many police and security authorities complain of the emasculation by Andhra Pradesh state politicians of state security and police cadres capable of action, and the pipe dream of thinking that negotiation and accommodation are going to work.

Why the earlier Trust assertions that donations are dealt with by cheque? Why such vast amounts of loose cash? Where is the accountability and transparency in all this?

———

Can we trust a Trust that doesn’t know about vast funds being transported in the dead of night, or carted in a passenger bus in gunny sacks of cash as if it were mere chaff or ragi? When proper practice by a Trust is upheld, who will dare to hump huge fortunes around the countryside like this? Such a Trust lacks due diligence, and is incompetent. What suppose wicked chaff or ragi robbers assail the van or bus and snatch the sacks?

———-

Although Sai Baba once famously wrote a letter in which he renounced his family – as large numbers of renunciates in time-honored Indian tradition do – his nephew R.J. Ratnakar is at centre stage.

———–

Will our private sources prove correct that the powerful government Minister Chidambaram and his son are supporting Ratnakar, who is politically ambitious and wants to control the Sathya Sai Central Trust?

———–

In one moment, we are told that ex Chief Justice of India P.N. Bhagwati is head of the Sai Central Trust. Next thing, we learn that he has resigned, and that Ratnakar is at the helm. Now Bhagwati has resigned. In fact, many Sai devotees see Ratnakar as having usurped what many viewed as Sai Baba’s most trusted aide, Satyajit. Just as is the case of largely attended anti-corruption protest rallies around India, perhaps it is only the sudden upsurge  – blinkers off now – questioning Sathya Sai devotees at large who stand any chance of breaking the nexus of the very worldly Trust members. As many Sai devotees know, Sai centers round the world have often been places of quiet whispers regarding the distinctive non-spirituality of many leaders Sai Baba hand-picked. Remember, dear devotees – your perturbed conversations? E.G., “It must be Baba’s test for our sadhana”. “After all, Baba knows all our past lives, and this must be a working out of our Karma”…. Others have had enough and either resign or quietly fade out of the Sai Organization. That researchers such as some journalists and academics avoid contact with those who leave a cult is professionally disgraceful to them. Worse than being overly cautious, they are not doing their job, and are cowards and lickspittles. They bow to the forces blowing along their system’s narrowest tunnels.

————

The Andhra Pradesh government, ostensibly chartered to investigate and report properly to parliament and public, is riddled in practically all quarters by longtime Sathya Sai Baba devotees, and still others who wheeled and dealed to their own political or pecuniary advantage. (Indications from my conversations with good sources in India are that already a combination of threats, bribes, calling in of favours, etc., endanger the hunt for facts by the media, devotee groups who suspect foul play among those they had formerly trusted, and other investigators.

Some media seem in a too much of a rush for hard facts, such as would stand up in a properly run court. They need to be far more proactive in approaching those with understanding and insight into Sathya Sai Organization, and other such organizations. They should realize that it is often not just hard-boiled facts they need to hunt out, but also clues. And, still more a broader interpretive framework, which can lead to understanding and insight with which to deal with the facts when, at last, they start to disclose themselves.

I doubt the Sai Central Trust or Sathya Sai Organization will be able to sue any in the media. Robert Priddy‘s, Exbaba.com’s and my personal experience is that they are all threat and no action.They are forever blaming someone else for their woes – “a handful of disgruntled former devotees”, the BBC, the Times of London, etc., etc. See:

Robert Priddy and Barry Pittard On Dr G. Venkataraman – Sathya Sai Baba Global Propagandist

————–

The Sai Trust is going to have to decide how much money it has to pay to the Andhra Pradesh Revenue Department. And then, if the wishes of vast numbers of rank-and-file devotees are respected – not to mention the huge national Indian upsurge of opinion about the scandal that is Puttaparthi – how much of their donated money is going to be directed to the properly intended efforts like the poor and needy, and education programs, etc.

As those of us whom Sai Baba’s officials and other devotees have threatened with litigation know too well, the Sathya Sai Organization and the Central Trust fear that if strong legal discovery processes unfold, decades of their dark dealing will perforce come out.

A cautious media is fine, but the often gutless one in India is a major threat to democracy. Indeed, one wonders whether some Indian journalists or their editors really understand or have looked at the difference between judicial levels of proof and prima facie indicators of crime. They need carefully to read the Indian Evidence Act). In the case of a PIL (Public Information Litigation), like the one Hari Sampath advanced on 8 May 2001, they should be vigilant, especially when we have gone to such lengths to let them know the circumstance in which the case was de-railed by abundantly obvious hijacking by Sai Baba-disposed judges. They should also have cognized that such a senior Indian Supreme Court advocate as Kamini Jaiswal is not going to lead her client, Sampath, by the nose and let him embark on a court action likely to frivolous, vexatious, and perilous. However, the Judges assigned to hear the case were of the worst kind.

Kamini Jaiswal, Supreme Court senior advocate

My distinguished legal friends from a number of countries, including the Commonwealth of which India is a member, have all seen this. I don’t believe Indian journalists don’t see this. Rather, they jump to the nervous reflexes of their editors and publishers. Therefore, they are to be held accountable for their professional dereliction. See documentation and further links:  Sathya Sai Trust In Vast Treasure Scandals: Secret Temple, Van, and Bus Stashes

Indian Media and Governments Heedless of Decade of Foreign Media and Sai Baba Critics’ Revelations

As I have said elsewhere, the Indian media, except India Today, was sorely derelict in failing to heed our evidence both in regard to the large-scale serial sexual abuses, and to the financial criminality and corruption which Hari Sampath was among the first to reveal publicly.

                                                      Sathya Sai Baba Disposed Indian Supreme Court Judges

———–

Sai Baba’s ‘treasure island’ newsblitz was soon eclipsed by news of great but far less cash being spirited out of the ashram by van and by bus. Trust spokesmen now reassure the media that all is well, and say the media has distorted matters. But many rank-and-file devotees are not reassured, and one reads that some are consulting their own lawyers. I predict Sai Central Trust lawyers will use delaying tactics, allowing Ratnakar and others, publicly, to bluff their way through, as though the blatant dereliction of spiritual principles and purposes had never occurred.

———–

I predict that, IF the Andhra Pradesh government properly probes the circumstances of Sathya Sai Baba’s death, and the circumstances of his well-reputed hospital director A.N. Dr Safaya’s resignation, and of numbers of his other medical and nursing staff at the Sai hospital, will show that individuals round Sai Baba earlier to his hospitalization, have either been negligent or criminal. Did any earlier aide withhold vital medications? Did the medical team fill with alarm to discover prior shortfalls of proper attention? Did any Trust member of associate refuse salient details about medical treatment prior to this time? Did any Trust or any other figure attempt to direct when Sai Baba’s life support system should be turned off, and at a later date than what would be reasonably be deemed proper?

————–

India has a long tradition of genuine, humble saints. Not one of them would have conceived of corporatized or industrialized spirituality. Many Indians, broadly, are joining large rallies against government and corporate corruption. Humble saints are not all that newsworthy.

————

Who except Sai Baba devotees will turn a blind eye to all the late Sai Baba’s parading about in the Hillview Stadium imperially mounted on a huge gold throne, his flashy self-glorifying buildings like his opulent twin palaces and his so-called ‘Spiritual Museum’, and much other extreme pomp and circumstance?

Unfortunately mostly forgotten are the powerful suppression by successive governments of facts about the police executions in his bedroom in 1993, and evidence from many countries of his wide-scale serial sexual molestation of boys and young men, and many other forms of reliably reported abuse, such as apartments scams involving the Puttaparthi front office …..

With the notable exception of India Today (December 4 2000) the Indian media has, in past decades, suppressed reports inimical to Sathya Sai Baba, and has long ignored major investigations by reputed media such as the BBC. NRI’s (Non Resident Indians) get to read what the Indian press has, in craven or incompetent fashion, blatantly ignored.

The countless victims still profoundly hurt, but who will hear their voice? Those who question, no matter how respectfully, are cast out from the international Sathya Sai Organisation.

Vishal Arora’s Article On Sathya Sai Baba

Posted by Barry Pittard on October 15, 2010

I draw my readers’ attention to the following articles by colleague and former head of the Norwegian Sathya Sai Organization, Robert Priddy.

  • Vishal Arora Indian journalist exposes Sathya Sai Baba
  • Vishal Arora – New Delhi Indian Journalist – on Sathya Sai Baba
  • Vishal Arora and Gerald Moreno’s vain deceptive e-mails
  • Vishal Arora Indian journalist exposes Sathya Sai Baba
  • Vishal Arora – New Delhi Indian Journalist – on Sathya Sai Baba
  •  

    ————————————–

    Quotation

    “As is his wont, Moreno speculated over why I was not on-line for two weeks in the month or so prior to Arora’s articles, implying that I was in India meeting him. Far from it, I was travelling in the Western hemisphere only.

    In fact, Moreno is extremely frustrated by the fact that no serious journalist or researcher will take any notice of what he writes, not as soon as they read his diatribes and falsifications. He was rejected by journalists in USA and one in Norway (at Aftenposten, who contacted me after an e-mail exchange with him which gave her the right picture well enough. She thought he was childish! Moreno wrote back to her that he was “very disappointed”!). He was up in arms over Tulasi Srinivas, who mentioned –  sometimes inaccurately and with much censorship of our evidence – the researches of Brian Steel, Barry Pittard and myself… but gave Moreno’s conspiracies the cold shoulder altogether. He has also been given the cold shoulder by my friend and colleague, Erlendur Haraldsson (in psychological and parapsychological matters), who simply mailed back to the mischievous Moreno how we are old friends. Everything I wrote about Haraldsson on my web pages is true (my wife can attest to the content of many conversations about Sai Baba’s egomania etc. he and I had). Of course, I have the proof of my various claims about his opinions in Haraldsson’s own e-mails to me, of which I have at least 50.

    Thus, Vishal Arora was no doubt drawn more and more into a sceptical attitude regarding Sathya Sai Baba by Moreno’s phoney friendly advances, though he (Aurora) did not communicate much with the sceptics. He e-mailed me on the advice of the dissident Serguei Badaev, former Sathya Sai Organization President in Moscow, quoting him as follows:-

    ‘We are continually being persecuted by various Sai Baba supporters, not least by Murali Krishna Yachendra… related to a most prominent Sai Baba follower in India. I have, for example, received a public death threat not so long ago too'”

    Public Petition On Sathya Sai Baba (1)

    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.

    Kevin R.D. Shepherd Exposes Sathya Sai Baba Defender Gerald Moreno

    Posted by Barry Pittard on August 24, 2009

    Certainly, prominent critics of Sathya Sai Baba and his sect number those who take more scholarly or, to say the least, civil approaches in writing on these topics. Nonetheless, it is good to find an independent scholar who has spent real time in studying these issues. One finds that he too, has come under aggressive, defamatory, unprincipled attack from Gerald Moreno. It is something that others of us who have written on the Sathya Sai Baba issue have become well used to.

    I refer to the independent British author on religion and philosophy Kevin R.D. Shepherd.

    Kevin R.D.Shepherd. British author and scholar, Philosophy and Religion

    Kevin R.D.Shepherd. British author and scholar, Philosophy and Religion

    His older website –  http://citizeninitiative.com/ –  cites academics of renown who have supported his work, such as the eminent British psychologist, Robert H.Thouless, (1894-1984) who wrote the best-selling “Straight and Crooked Thinking”. Shepherd has just put online another website – http://www.kevinrdshepherd.info. It deals with topics on which he has written widely – philosophy, religion and psychology. Although Kevin Shepherd has never had affiliation with Sathya Sai Baba or his worldwide movement, nor friendship with former followers of Sathya Sai Baba, one section deals with Gerald ‘Joe’ Moreno, a highly aggressive, vituperative, defamatory pro Sathya Sai Baba defender, who works with assistance – they in the background – from prominent as well as rank-and-file Sai Baba personnel in different parts of the world.

    The Attack of Scurrility Upon Urbanity

    It is an extraordinary state of affairs when writers who have spent their lifetimes in civil, academic and urbane discourse are set upon – especially by those who would presuppose a moral highground of love, light and spirituality.

    The title of one of Moreno’s nest of attack sites is: Sathya SaiBaba – Love, Light and Spirituality. If anyone can find much of these qualities at that and at his other sites (via which, complexly and interactively, he constantly manipulates search engine ratings), I shall be most surprised. See:

    Sathya Sai Baba Love, Light and Spirituality Exposed

    Below, I have included a number of readings relating to individuals of a serious and civil sort who have been set upon by Moreno.

    Kevin R.D.Shepherd writes in his introduction to the several sections:

    “Certainly, Moreno  can  be  interpreted  as  the exact opposite of  the benign  sentiment  quoted. Joe  Moreno  of  New  Mexico  has  been  described  as  a  web  harasser and  internet  terrorist, a  role which he  has recently  demonstrated  in  relation  to  an  outsider, namely myself  (who  has  never  been  a  devotee  or  an  ex-devotee). See my Web Tactics of Pro-Sai Activism (2009).

    The  sectarian  blogger  has  mistakenly  identified  me with with ex-devotees. I am not one of that unfortunate category.  Those  people have frequently expressed their grievances on the web, and in a variety of  forms.  I  do  not  agree  with  all  the  idioms  and  strategies  visible  in  that  field.  In particular, the  blog  domain  is  foreign  to  my  own  disposition”.

    A glance at Kevin R.D. Shepherd’s index appearing on his new website where he deals with Gerald Moreno is instructive in and of itself, indicating the sheer range and aggressive severity of Moreno’s preoccupations:

    A Philosopher Sleuth Vs An Unprincipled Sleuth

    For those with an interest in the ever-pressing topic of the nefarious manipulation of Internet technology by obscurantist forces – I might point my readers to the latter section, 5.16. Dated July 2009, it is a lucid exposition of  a few types of deception characteristic of Moreno, who has made a speciality of cyber attack via manipulation of search engine characteristics and methodologies. Step by meticulous step, Shepherd lays bare some of the Moreno modus. Screen captures, date-spotting and and forensic revealing and exposition are of Kevin R.D. Shepherd’s essence here. The alert reader can distinguish between sleuthing sprung of philosophical skill and habit and Moreno’s roughneck sleuthing which would hunt for shaky pegs on which to hang endless distortion and fabrication. Shepherd speaks of Moreno’s “prolific imagination”, commenting that “The conflatory and distorting tendencies of Joe Moreno are extreme”.

    The Sathya Sai Baba Cordon in Wikipedia

    Kevin Shepherd’s detailed discussion (not that writings of this scholar are at virtually any time less than detailed, though the style is engaging and incisive) of Moreno’s aggressive tactics in the ‘Sathya Sai Baba’ article on Wikipedia. For this incessant misconduct, senior administrators banned Moreno. Shepherd writes:

    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”.

    Gerald “Joe” Moreno’s Google infovandalism

    Alan Kazlev, yet another writer who is typically guarded in his use of words, has applied the term “infovandalism” to Moreno’s cyber attacks:

    “We tend to assume that information found online will be reliable. That Google provides unbiased search results, that Wikipedia is a decent alternative to Brittanica. My experience with the abusive and totalitarian Sai Baba follower Gerald “Joe” Moreno has shown me one example of how Google and other resources like external link WordPress and external link Pipl can be manipulated.

    So extensive is the disinformation and biasing of the original search results that the term “infovandalism” may appropriately be applied. All three screenshots were made on the 2nd April 2008. Doubtless results will change with time. Note that although Google has a Google link complaints form, they don’t seem to have acted on this matter”.

    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

    Posted by Barry Pittard on May 9, 2009

    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.

    Joe Moreno’s Language of Hatred and Disparagement Against Sai Baba Critics

    The Art and Craft of Gerald Joe Moreno, New Mexico, USA

    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 – Banned By Eight Wikpedia Editors

    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
