Swami Ambikananda’s Amazing Prophecy Regarding Robert Priddy

Swami Ambikananda

Swami Ambikananda

Before Robert Priddy became an overzealous enthusiast of the Indian Guru Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, he was a devotee of Swami Ambikananda. About Ambikananda, Robert Priddy said:

Robert Priddy: “When I was connected in the 1970s with a pure Indian swami who lived in England (Swami Ambikananda), and to whom I had an intense relationship for some period, the same kind of synchronous phenomena occurred… and grew into a whole range of simultaneous thoughts-cum-events. It became very troublesome, for the more I concentrated on my connection to him, the more every other thought remotely I had about it seemed to produce a creak in the woodwork of the house or various ‘signs’ relating to him. During one period, the flame of a candle before his picture would ‘answer’ my definitive mental desire for an affirmation by directly sinking almost down to extinction for some time before burning up again.”

Robert Priddy also discussed Swami Ambikananda in his Pro-Baba book “Source Of The Dream – My Way To Sathya Sai Baba” (without mentioning him by name) and claimed that the Swami visited him in dreams, possessed supernatural and psychic powers, passed his predetermined mental tests, was responsible for his marriage to Reidun and that his eyes shone “like burning embers”. Robert Priddy also claimed that a clap of thunder echoed from a clear sky when he entertained the thought that Swami Ambikananda might be a womanizer!

It is significant to note that Swami Ambikananda told Robert Priddy that he should always remember Sai Baba or he “could go mad”. Although Robert Priddy wrote and spoke favorably about Swami Ambikananda, it is surprising that the Swami actually lambasted Robert Priddy as a “skeptic septic tank” (when he had no reason to do so) years before Robert Priddy became a foaming-at-the-mouth skeptic and years before Robert Priddy defected from the Sai Movement! As a matter of fact, Swami Ambikananda died in 1997, three years before Robert Priddy became a rabid ex-devotee.

By reading Robert Priddy’s current writing against Sathya Sai Baba and others, it certainly appears he has gone mad and most certainly is a “skeptic septic tank”. Apparently, there is more to Swami Ambikananda than meets the eye and his prophecy regarding Robert Priddy is wholly remarkable.
