Marta Szabo And ‘Shadow of the Guru’ Website

Visit the Shadows of the Guru Busters Blog

On Marta Szabo’s blog The Guru Looked Good, she says about herself:

Marta Szabo: “I am a writer of memoir. My husband, Fred Poole, and I run a series of workshops we call Authentic Writing in which people write passionately about their lives. I do almost all of my writing in these workshops. For readers of the Siddha Yoga blog: I was on full-time, live-in staff 1990-2000 in Manhattan, South Fallsburg & Ganeshpuri. ~ ~ ~ During the course of The Guru Looked Good being posted I was contacted once by phone by ashram management, telling me to take down the blog immediately and threatening to take legal action against me if I didn’t follow orders.” (Reference)

When the blog “The Guru Looked Good” first went online, Marta Szabo appeared very needy because she solicited PayPal donations with the following blurb:

Marta Szabo: “It is extremely fulfilling to have you read this writing. Even more so when you let me know that it has been of value to you, and even entertaining. If you have the means and are so moved, you are welcome to make a donation. Your gift will be used to sustain me, my writing and my efforts to support others to write their stories and uncover their own truths. Thank you.”

Fast forward a few years and Szabo’s needy donation request is no longer evident. What is evident, however, is Marta Szabo’s frequent parties and trips (which even included a trip to Paris). How much money did Marta Szabo receive in donations and did anyone fund her book?

Stange enough, Marta Szabo belonged to a fanatic cult before joining the Siddha Yoga movement (the details of which are to be released in another book not yet published) and is currently an ex-devotee of both Swami Muktananda and Gurumayi Chidvilasananda.

On April 20th 2010, Marta Szabo was sent an email asking her what her personal views were regarding ex-cult and/or anti-cult members who profess being worshippers of Shakti (often in the fiercer forms, like Kali or Hecate) and who claim to be occultists, New Agers, psychics, tarot card readers, reiki masters and the like.

Marta Szabo did not answer the email. Why not?

MARTA SZABO, JOAN R. BRIDGES & SHADOW OF THE GURU

Marta Szabo is directly associated with the Shadow of the Guru website and related “anti-cult” documentary. See for yourself:

Shadow of the Guru is the name for an “anti-cult” website and “anti-cult” documentary owned by “CEO” Joan Radha Bridges (a self-professed psychic, reiki master, Goddess and tantra practitioner who is into kinky, sexual, provocative, fetish, lesbian, Goth and Shiva Shakti imagery).

Joan Radha Bridges is also strongly partnered with Jade Sol Luna, a man who is closely allied with satanists, occultists, witches, psychics, tarot card readers and Goth priests. For example, on Jade Sol Luna’s “Masters Of Invocation” CD (View MySpace Page), the tracks are:

  1. BBTN – Intro 3:47
  2. Raven Digitalis – Hades Invocation 4:38
  3. Matthew James – Temple of Sokar 6:43
  4. Helene Delcroix – Call to Lucifer (Latin)2:15
  5. Jade Sol Luna – New Moon Invocation 4:35
  6. Venus Satanas – Invocation to the Infernal Ones 4:37
  7. Kindra RavenMoon – Call to Lilith 3:46
  8. Raven Digitalis – Set Invocation 3:29
  9. Jana – Queen of the Crossroads 3:51
  10. Matthew James – Sokar Invocation 4:06
  11. Helene Delcroix – Call to Lucifer (French)4:06
  12. Kindra RavenMoon – Dark God Invocation 2:06
  13. Jade Sol Luna – The Goat of Passion 3:42
  14. Raven Digitalis – Hades Invocation- Club Mix 4:36
  15. Kindra RavenMoon – Call to Lillith- Club Mix 3:42

On the “Masters Of Invocation” CD, Jade Sol Luna worked with Raven Digitalis, Helene Delcroix, Venus Satanas and Kindra Ravenmoon. Who are these people?

  • Helene Delcroix (View MySpace Page) is a self-professed wiccan, satanist, clairvoyant, psychic, astrologer, tarot card reader, black magician, fortune teller and parapsychologist.
  • Raven Digitalis (View WebSite) is a self-professed witch, pagan priest, wiccan, Goth, author, DJ, artisan, empath, tarot card reader and spiritual counselor who offers divination services, public rituals, handfasting, blessings, guided meditations, healing work, chakra alignment, exorcisms and herbal crafts.
  • Venus Satanas (View WebSiteView Psychic WebSiteView Blog) is a self-professed satanist, wiccan, tarot card reader, seller of satanic ritual items and psychic who claims she can pronounce curses and summon infernal deities.
  • Kindra Ravenmoon (View MySpaceView WebSite) is a satanist, demoness, dark arts alternative model, independent horror film actress, music journalist, musician, writer, Goth and witch.

Joan Radha Bridges is so devoted to Jade Sol Luna’s dark philosophy, she actually hosted a seminar for him in her house in Atlanta and allowed him to worship her Goddess statue there. On Joan Radha Bridges’ MySpace page (which is now set to private), she referred to Jade Sol Luna as her “teacher” and claims to follow the dark path of “La Sera”, which means “The Left Hand of Wicca”. Jade Sol Luna made a CD entitled “La Sera” and his visual depiction for that path is clearly Satanic (Picture Reference).

La Sera is based on what Jade Sol Luna calls “Nirrtibhava Tantra” (Nirrti being the Hindu Goddess of death and corruption) that is associated with the fierce Goddess Kalika Devi. Even more disturbing are pictures of Joan Radha Bridges engaged in tantric meditation while holding a human skull in her hands (Pic Link)! Jade Sol Luna also figures prominently on Joan Radha Bridges’ Shadow of the Guru website and associated YouTube trailer. See for yourself:

These are the type of people that Marta Szabo endorses, promotes and associates herself with! Marta Szabo would have us believe that it is wrong to believe in Gurus, but that it is OKAY to believe in and trust “anti-cult” activists like Joan Radha Bridges and Jade Sol Luna who advocate for Satan, Lucifer, Goth, Wicca, tarot, psychics, reiki, astrology, dark magic, left-hand paths, Goddess statues and Goddess cults. Shocking!

Perhaps Marta Szabo can write another book telling us how she was duped again and title it “The Guru Busters Looked Good”.

Factnet.org provided the following public domain information about psychoanalyst and psychotherapist Daniel Shaw (aka “Dan Shaw”):

Dan Shaw, C.S.W.
Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis

New York, New York 10019
Tel./ Fax.: (212) 581-6658

shawdan@aol.com

www.danielshawlcsw.com

Works with former members of cults and cultic groups, and friends and families of cult members.

His work in this area is connected to theories of malignant or pathological narcissism, and he has a special interest in working with those who have exited or who are exiting from destructive relationships with abusive teachers, partners, and significant others.

He is an allied professional member of the Division of Psychoanalysis (39) of the American Psychological Association; faculty and clinical supervisor at and certified in adult psychoanalysis and psychotherapy by The National Institute for the Psychotherapies (NIP) in New York City; co-chair of the Education Committee of the International Association for Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy (IARPP).

Read his essay, “Traumatic Abuse in Cults” completely free. (Text ReferenceScreencap Reference)

Daniel Shaw received his Masters Degree in Social Work from Yeshiva University, New York, in 1996. He was certified as a Psychoanalyst in 2000 after completing the four year training program at The National Institute for the Psychotherapies (NIP), in New York City. Dan Shaw worked as a professional actor before joining the Siddha Yoga movement and is currently an ex-devotee of Gurumayi Chidvilasananda. Daniel Shaw was active in the SYDA movement from 1981 – 1994, taking on the spiritual name of “Sureshwar”. Daniel Shaw is the webmaster and registrant for the leavingsiddhayoga.net domain (Screencap Reference).

On April 20th 2010, Daniel Shaw was sent an email asking him what his personal views were regarding ex-cult and/or anti-cult members who profess being worshippers of Shakti (often in the fiercer forms, like Kali or Hecate) and who claim to be occultists, New Agers, psychics, tarot card readers, reiki masters and the like.

Daniel Shaw replied the same day but did not answer the questions. Rather, he said, “maybe you could introduce yourself to me and let me know a little about you before I answer your inquiry? It helps to know whom I’m speaking to and what prompts your question.”

Therefore, the following email was sent to Daniel Shaw on April 20th 2010:

Dear Daniel Shaw,

My name is Joe Moreno and I am the webmaster for saisathyasai.com, a website that exposes the lies, deceit and dishonesty of critics of Sathya Sai Baba.

I stumbled upon the shadowoftheguru.com website (and associated YouTube video) and was surprised to find that Barry Pittard (an ex-devotee of Sathya Sai Baba) was dishonestly described as a “Professor”. To Date: Barry Pittard has never divulged any alleged credentials he may possess that would entitle him the status of “Professor”. Barry Pittard allegedly taught at Sathya Sai Baba’s college before it became a prestigious University and he was not required to have credentials to teach English there (the institute was actually a separate entity prior to the creation of the highly recognized and prestigious Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning in 1981). Barry Pittard is the same person who has openly promoted, endorsed and linked to Robert Priddy’s falsified and fraudulent “sexual molestation” libels against me (which falsely and maliciously claim that I was sexually abused by Sathya Sai Baba – I most certainly was not!).

As a result of shadowoftheguru.com’s public endorsement and promotion of a man (i.e., Pittard) who publicly promotes defamatory and libelous information against me and others on the internet, I have decided to write some articles pertaining to the shadowoftheguru.com website, in which you feature prominently.

Cursory research has shown that Joan Radha Bridges is into the sexual aspect of Goth, is a Tarot Card Reader, a self-professed Psychic, a self-professed Reiki practitioner, a “Lover of Hecate”, a Kali worshipper, a practitioner of Tantra, a self-professed Goddess (even taking on one of the names of Hecate as her own) and is into graphic lesbian & sexual and erotic Shiva-Shakti imagery.

Joan Radha Bridges’ husband (Mercer Truett Bridges) actually had his physicians license revoked due to his chemical dependency on fetanyl from 1997 – 2000. After Dr. Bridges’ successfully completed his probation period (with a termination for probation being authorized in December 2000), he (for reasons yet undisclosed) voluntarily surrendered his physicians license in February 2005 (an extreme step that a doctor would not normally take unless there was sufficient cause for him to do so).

Jade Sol Luna is openly associated with Satanists and has made various recordings were Hades, Infernal Gods and Lucifer are invoked in ritualistic chants. Jade Sol Luna is a self-professed psychic, astrologer, follower of Hecate (the Dark Goddess), a preacher of “shadow” paths, a preacher of “left-handed” paths, a preacher of “dark” paths, is an “Avatar Meher Baba” devotee, an admirer of Aghora Baba, an admirer of Ramakrishna, a Wiccan, into Tantra, a person who claims to “energize” malas by using planetary hymns and a person who worshipped Joan Radha Bridges’ Goddess statue in Atlanta.

Therefore, I am naturally intrigued: Why are you affiliating yourself with these people on the shadowoftheguru.com website when you publicly present yourself as a rational, logical and professional voice against cults and cultic beliefs? It would appear that your public views are in conflict with your private ones.

I wonder what the general public will think when they get this public domain information that has been purposely suppressed and omitted on the shadowoftheguru.com website and associated YouTube & Vimeo videos.

Looking forward to your answers.

Sincerely,

Joe Moreno

Needless to say, Daniel Shaw did not reply to this email. Why not?

Shocking!

Despite being a professional in “theories of malignant or pathological narcissism” Daniel Shaw can’t see malignant or pathological narcissim when it’s right there in front of his face. If we are to believe Daniel Shaw, we must believe that “Goddess” Joan Radha Bridges does not suffer from pathological narcissism, but Gurus making that exact claim do.

Now it is understandable why Daniel Shaw did not answer the email. What kind of excuses and justifications can we expect from Dan Shaw, LCSW? Updates will be forthcoming.

Joan Radha Bridges And ‘Shadow of the Guru’ Website

Visit the Shadows of the Guru Busters blog

Joan ‘Radha’ Bridges (Pic Link) is the “CEO”, producer and owner of JoanRadha Inc., a “Motion Pictures and Film industry”. Joan Radha Bridges is the executive producer of an educational “Cult Abuse Documentary Film Series, encompassing multiple intimate interviews of prominent cult abuse survivors.” Joan Radha Bridges is the owner of the shadowoftheguru.com domain and producer of the “anti-cult” film documentary “Shadow of the Guru”.

Joan Radha Bridges is an ex-devotee of both Swami Muktananda and Gurumayi Chidvilasananda. Joan R. Bridges now alleges that Swami Muktananda “raped” her (one year before his death) in 1981 when she was 26 years old and when the swami was 73 years old and impotent. Despite her alleged “rape” in 1981, Joan Radha Bridges stayed in the SYDA movement until 2002 (twenty one years after the alleged incident and twenty years after the swami died).

Joan Radha Bridges released what appeared to be compelling stories of alleged abuse through various internet forums under the name “Radha” and “radha30327”. Compelling, that is, until now.

Joan Radha Bridges’ MySpace Page

Joan Radha Bridges’ MySpace page gave a revealing (perhaps too much so) look at her beliefs, preferences, sexuality and personality. Joan Radha Bridges is openly into Goth, provocative, sexual, lesbian, fetish and Shiva-Shakti imagery. See for yourself:

On April 21st 2010, a link to this blog was sent to Joan Radha Bridges and she immediately began to cover her tracks and promptly set her Facebook and MySpace pages to “private” (Refs: 0102). Apparently, Joan Radha Bridges thinks her MySpace page is a liability to her credibility (Screencap Reference).

The comments section on Joan Radha Bridges’ MySpace page was chock-full of provocative, sexual, fetish and animated lesbian imagery mostly submitted by AllyKat4u (subsequently set to private) and JeffBKent (subsequently set to private). Therefore, the comment section to Joan Radha Bridges’ MySpace page will not be duplicated here. However, a thumbprint layout to the images published on Bridges’ MySpace page has been saved for referencing purposes (Screencap Reference):

A sampling of AllyKat4u’s lesbian imagery can be seen here. A few examples of AllyKat4u’s lesbian images that were made exclusively for Joan Radha Bridges can be seen at: 010203040506070809101112 (these images were available at the time of publication). Notice how the image folder was named “Joan Radha Bridges” (Screencap Reference).

Joan Radha Bridges was well aware that these lesbian images were published in her comments section and she left them there for all to see and enjoy! Anyone wishing to obtain a full download to Joan Radha Bridges’ former & public MySpace page can request it through the contact link provided on the side menu (anonymous requests with anonymous emails will not be honored).

Is Joan Radha Bridges A Goddess?

On Joan Radha Bridges’ MySpace page, the following comments were made (Screencap Reference):

Arachno Folies: Hello beautiful Enodia, thanks for the add. I love your world. Have a great and magic day. Kisses – Yves from France

Den: Thank you for the add, and for being a wonderful hostess during Jade’s Destroyer Goddess lecture. I look forward to visiting again next time such an opportunity presents. Your Goddess representation is most Illuminating.

Jeff Kent-Musical Journalist/Lyrics/Music Producer: FETISH FANTASIES FOR THE GODDESS (which was attached to a slide show that contained about 20 hard-core lesbian images)

Jade Sol Luna: How was your weekend Enodia?

Jade Sol Luna: I loved worshipping your statue in Atlanta!! Welcome :)

On a book review for Jade Sol Luna’s Hecate I: Death, Transition and Spiritual Mastery, the following comments were made:

Blanca Diaz:…“Hecate is Enodia keeper of keys to the underworld/unconscious and it is SHE who can move you through the 6 shadows of the Heart Chakra that block the path towards enlightenment…If you are seeking this kind of path then what Jade has to say will probably scare or offend you.”…(Reference)

Joan Radha Rivers: “Being a lover of Hecate, I was so excited when i heard Jade Sl Luna was coming out with the first real book on Hecate. This book has the power to transform. To read this book is to know Hecate. Thank you Jade” (Reference)

Therefore, it can be abundantly evidenced that Joan Radha Bridges uses the Goddess name “Enodia” and is known by the Goddess name “Enodia”. Joan Bridges also referred to herself as a “lover” of the Dark Goddess “Hecate” (who is also known as “Enodia”). Jeff Kent offered a hard-core, fetish and lesbian slide show to Joan Radha Bridges and referred to her as a “Goddess”. AllyKat4u made several comments on Joan & Jeff’s MySpace page that implied they spent time together:

AllyKat4u: Wishing you and Joan a wonderful Easter weekend Jeff. Love as always, Ally xo

I hope that you guys will have a wonderful celebration together today. Love Ally xo

Wishing you and Jeff and fantastic Easter weekend together Joan..love you, Ally xo smak!

I hope that Jeff’s your Christmas was filled with the magic of the holiday season..and that all of your dreams came true. Thank you for the presious gift of friendship…Love ya both…kissez..and huggz Ally (Reference)

On This Page, a person claimed that Jeff Kent is helping Joan Roach Bridges produce her Shadow of the Guru film. Jeffrey Kent also spent time in September 2009 with Joan Bridges in Georgia and they even posed for pictures and made a video together! See for yourself.

Therefore, Jeff Kent knew exactly what he was doing and saying when he called Joan a “Goddess” and sent her lesbian erotica.

This brings us to the Goddess statue that Jade Sol Luna said he enjoyed worshipping in Atlanta and about which Den said “Your Goddess representation is most Illuminating.” During Jade Sol Luna’s “Destroyer Goddess” seminar (which was held at Joan Radha Bridges’ home in Atlanta), pictures of the event were taken and published on Jade Sol Luna’s PhotoBucket account. The pictures of Joan Radha Bridges’ Goddess Statue are very disturbing, eerie, bizarre and cultish (Screencap Reference).

As one can see, Joan Radha Bridges has a winged Goddess statue that was made in her exact likeness! Surrounding the Goddess are skulls, snakes, crystals, candles and what appear to be ritualistic items. How weird is that? It would appear that Joan Radha Bridges really does think she is a Goddess. This might also explain why Joan Radha Bridges wore a huge, red bindi on her forehead during the filming of the Shadow of the Guru trailer on YouTube!

Joan Radha Bridges Practices Tantra:

Joan Radha Bridges has made several interesting comments about “tantra”:

Joan Radha Bridges:…“I myself practice a form of tantra (that is what siddha yoga is, unfortunately SY is a lot of black tantra) that harms no one”… (Reference)

Joan Radha Bridges:…“The teachings are nothing new , but very valid teachings from the ancient Tantras of India , you can practice on your own as you seem to be anyway. S claims to own something that is free to all. You can receive the blessings of God within, don’t go looking for someone outside of yourself, there is so much available in the subtle world, just be persistent”… (Reference)

Joan Radha Bridges: “I know you can’t learn tantra from a book. Books are just someones minds, but the ancients texts make sense out of direct experince. As you just said about the book you recommneded below I also practice Tantra. I have had a great teacher, but I am clear I don’t need a ‘guru’.” (Reference)

Combining the quotes above with the provocative, sexual, fetish and lesbian content on Joan Radha Bridges’ MySpace page and her cultish Goddess beliefs, one can only guess what kind of “tantra” she’s really into.

Joan Bridges, Black Tantra & Jade Sol Luna:

As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. WHY is Joan Radha Bridges meditating with a human skull in her hands (Pic Link)? One cannot help to wonder if the human skulls that Joan Radha Bridges possesses have been cleared with the police or FBI. Where exactly did Joan Radha Bridges obtain her human skulls from?

In his book The encyclopedia of Tibetan symbols and motifs, Robert Beér had the following to say about tantric skulls:

“The skull of a murder or execution victim is believed to possess the greatest tantric power; the skull of one who has died from a violent or accidental death, or from a virulent illness, possesses a medium magical power; the skull of a person who died peacefully in old age has virtually no occult power. The skull of a child who died during the onset of puberty also has great potency, as do the skulls of miscegenated [sic] or misbegotten child of unknown paternity, born from the forbidden union of castes, out of wedlock, from sexual misdemeanor, or particularly from incest. The ‘misbegotten skull’ of a seven or eight-year-old child born from an incestuous union is considered to possess the greatest power in certain tantric rituals. Here the vital force or potential of the skull’s ‘previous owner’ is embodied within the bone as a spirit, rendering it as an effective power object for the performance of tantric rituals.”

Since Joan Radha Bridges admitted that she practices tantra, it would appear that she was attempting to stimulate her kundalini as black tantrists are alleged to do with human skulls.

Joan Radha Bridges is also strongly partnered with Jade Sol Luna, a man who is closely allied with satanists, occultists, witches, psychics, tarot card readers and Goth priests. For example, on Jade Sol Luna’s “Masters Of Invocation” CD (View MySpace Page), the tracks are:

  1. BBTN – Intro 3:47
  2. Raven Digitalis – Hades Invocation 4:38
  3. Matthew James – Temple of Sokar 6:43
  4. Helene Delcroix – Call to Lucifer (Latin)2:15
  5. Jade Sol Luna – New Moon Invocation 4:35
  6. Venus Satanas – Invocation to the Infernal Ones 4:37
  7. Kindra RavenMoon – Call to Lilith 3:46
  8. Raven Digitalis – Set Invocation 3:29
  9. Jana – Queen of the Crossroads 3:51
  10. Matthew James – Sokar Invocation 4:06
  11. Helene Delcroix – Call to Lucifer (French)4:06
  12. Kindra RavenMoon – Dark God Invocation 2:06
  13. Jade Sol Luna – The Goat of Passion 3:42
  14. Raven Digitalis – Hades Invocation- Club Mix 4:36
  15. Kindra RavenMoon – Call to Lillith- Club Mix 3:42

On the “Masters Of Invocation” CD, Jade Sol Luna worked with Raven Digitalis, Helene Delcroix, Venus Satanas and Kindra Ravenmoon. Who are these people?

  • Helene Delcroix (View MySpace Page) is a self-professed wiccan, satanist, clairvoyant, psychic, astrologer, tarot card reader, black magician, fortune teller and parapsychologist.
  • Raven Digitalis (View WebSite) is a self-professed witch, pagan priest, wiccan, Goth, author, DJ, artisan, empath, tarot card reader and spiritual counselor who offers divination services, public rituals, handfasting, blessings, guided meditations, healing work, chakra alignment, exorcisms and herbal crafts.
  • Venus Satanas (View WebSiteView Psychic WebSiteView Blog) is a self-professed satanist, wiccan, tarot card reader, seller of satanic ritual items and psychic who claims she can pronounce curses and summon infernal deities.
  • Kindra Ravenmoon (View MySpaceView WebSite) is a satanist, demoness, dark arts alternative model, independent horror film actress, music journalist, musician, writer, Goth and witch.

Joan Radha Bridges is so devoted to Jade Sol Luna’s dark philosophy, she actually hosted a seminar for him in her house in Atlanta and allowed him to worship her Goddess statue there. On Joan Radha Bridges’ MySpace page (which is now set to private), she referred to Jade Sol Luna as her “teacher” and claims to follow the dark path of “La Sera”, which means “The Left Hand of Wicca”. Jade Sol Luna made a CD entitled “La Sera” and his visual depiction for that path is clearly Satanic (Picture Reference).

La Sera is based on what Jade Sol Luna calls “Nirrtibhava Tantra” (Nirrti being the Hindu Goddess of death and corruption) that is associated with the fierce Goddess Kalika Devi. Like Joan Radha Bridges, Jade Sol Luna also has a penchant to meditate with skulls (see pic link here). Jade Sol Luna also figures prominently on Joan Radha Bridges’ Shadow of the Guru website and associated YouTube trailer. See for yourself:

Joan Radha Bridges – A Psychic Reader And Reiki Master:

Joan Radha Bridges described herself as a “Reiki Master since 1985” (Reference) and has solicited her psychic services on the internet (even divulging her phone number). This screencap documents Joan Radha Bridges’ advertisement to being a “Reiki master” who gives “readings” to individuals and groups (Reference).

Joan R. Bridges’ Husband: Mercer Truett Bridges Jr:

Joan Radha Bridges’ husband is Mercer Truett Bridges Jr (a former anesthesiologist from Atlanta, Georgia). On Joan Bridges’ bios page, she dishonestly described herself as being married to a “physician”. The Shadow of the Guru domain was purchased on April 14th 2008, a full three years after her husband voluntarily surrendered his physicians license (meaning he is no longer a physician). It is unclear why Joan Radha Bridges would purposely mislead readers with inaccurate information about her husband’s profession.

In 1987 Mercer Truett Bridges Jr used fetanyl (a DEA Schedule II narcotic whose biological effects are similar to those of heroin) for his own recreational use and was caught. As a result, he entered a drug treatment program for chemical dependency at the Impaired Health Professionals Program at Georgia Drug and Alcohol Associates, Smyrna, Georgia and was put on probation for five years. On November 5th 1992, Mercer Truett Bridges Jr successfully completed his probation period and the probation was terminated (View “Public Record Reference” Below).

In July 1995, Mercer Truett Bridges Jr was unable to administer anesthesia to a patient because he was chemically impaired due to fetanyl use and again entered into a drug treatment program at the Ridgeview Institute. On November 3rd 1995, the Composite Board of Medical Examiners suspended Mercer Truett Bridges Jr’s physicians license. On June 5th 1997, Mercer Truett Bridges Jr was allowed to practice medicine but under terms and conditions of probation. On December 8th 2000, Mercer Truett Bridges Jr successfully completed his probation period and the probation was terminated (View “Public Record Reference” Below).

For reasons yet unknown, Mercer Truett Bridges Jr “freely, knowingly and voluntarily” surrendered his physicians license (which has the same effect as a revocation of his license) to the Composite State Board of Medical Examiners in Georgia on January 25th 2005 (View “Public Record Reference” Below). Needless to say, physicians rarely surrender their licenses without adequate reason or cause and usually do so for reasons of impropriety.

PUBLIC RECORD REFERENCE:
On the Georgia Composite Medical Board website, type in the last name of “Bridges”, the license number of “032520”, the city of “Atlanta” and the provider type of “Physician”. Click the search button and you will get the following result:

Mercer Truett Bridges Jr attempted to obtain a physicians license in Ohio in 2006 and he was denied based on the grounds that he is “chemically dependent”.

MERCER TRUETT BRIDGES, JR., M.D.

November 8, 2006: Dr. Robbins advised that on September 13, 2006, the Board issued a Notice of Opportunity for Hearing to Mercer Truett Bridges, Jr., M.D., based upon a series of disciplinary actions taken by the Georgia Composite State Board of Medical Examiners against Dr. Bridges’a medical license. Signed certified mail receipts were returned to the Medical Board documenting proper service of the notice. No hearing request has been received from Dr. Bridges and more than 30 days have elapsed since the mailing of the notice. The matter was before the Board for final disposition. Dr. Steinbergh noted that this is a case of chemical impairment and multiple relapses.

Mr. Albert and Mr. Browning left the meeting at this time. DR. STEINBERGH MOVED TO FIND THAT THERE IS RELIABLE, PROBATIVE AND SUBSTANTIAL EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT THE ALLEGATIONS CONTAINED IN THE SEPTEMBER 13, 2006 NOTICE AND TO ENTER AN ORDER OF REVOCATION, EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY. DR. MADIA SECONDED THE MOTION.

Dr. Robbins stated that he would now entertain discussion in the above matter. Dr. Steinbergh again stated that Dr. Bridges is chemically dependent and has had multiple relapses. He voluntarily surrendered his Georgia license in February 2005. There is a history of a number of consent orders, and so forth in Georgia. A vote was taken on Dr. Steinbergh’s motion: The motion carried.

UPDATE: June 11th 2010: Joan Radha Bridges has subsequently disclosed that she divorced Mercer Truett Bridges Jr six years ago although she referred to him as her “husband” on her bios page, which states “During this period, she married a physician, began raising two children, which gave rise to certain material successes, including a ‘Holistic Clinic’ she and her husband formed together.” When Mercer Truett Bridges Jr was under probation for his chemical dependency issues, he created the Holistic Clinic East-West Medical in Atlanta, Georgia. It remains unclear why Joan Radha Bridges would refer to her ex-husband as her “husband” although she had already been divorced from him for four years when she created her Shadow of the Guru domain.

Joan Radha Bridges – In Conclusion

There is little doubt that Joan Radha Bridges has lost all credibility as an “anti-cult” spokesperson. Her ritualistic invocations of “cult abuse” are more literal than figurative. Joan Radha Bridges has no doubt been enabled and propped by psychoanalyst and psychotherapist Daniel Shaw (another “anti-cult” activist associated with Bridges’ Shadow of the Guru anti-cult film). Daniel Shaw unequivocally endorses, promotes and defends Joan Radha Bridges and Jade Sol Luna!

Joan Radha Bridges (the Shadow of the Guru CEO and Executive Producer) would have us believe that it is wrong to believe in Gurus, but it is OKAY to believe in Satan, Lucifer, wicca, tarot card readers, psychics, reiki practitioners, astrologers, dark magicians, Goddess statues and Goddess cults. Shocking!

But then again, Joan Radha Bridges thinks she is a Goddess and a Goddess can do whatever she wants – including pulling a bag over your head and meditating with your skull. Any takers?

Joan Radha Bridges has herself and Barry Pittard to thank for the creation of this blog. When Joan Radha Bridges was emailed with complaints about Barry Pittard, she decided to ignore the complaints. I bet she wish she hadn’t.

Shadows Galore – The Dark Side Of Jade Sol Luna

Jade Sol Luna (also known as “Jade Silvano Luna”, “Jyoti Chandrananda” and “Chandra Shankar”) is closely allied with satanists, occultists, witches, psychics, tarot card readers and goth priests. For example, on Jade Sol Luna’s “Masters Of Invocation” CD (View MySpace Page), the tracks are:

  1. BBTN – Intro 3:47
  2. Raven Digitalis – Hades Invocation 4:38
  3. Matthew James – Temple of Sokar 6:43
  4. Helene Delcroix – Call to Lucifer (Latin)2:15
  5. Jade Sol Luna – New Moon Invocation 4:35

  13. Jade Sol Luna – The Goat of Passion 3:42
  14. Raven Digitalis – Hades Invocation- Club Mix 4:36
  15. Kindra RavenMoon – Call to Lillith- Club Mix 3:42

On the “Masters Of Invocation” CD, Jade Sol Luna worked with Raven Digitalis, Helene Delcroix, Venus Satanas and Kindra Ravenmoon. Who are these people?

  • Helene Delcroix (View MySpace Page) is a self-professed wiccan, satanist, clairvoyant, psychic, astrologer, tarot card reader, black magician, fortune teller and parapsychologist.
  • Raven Digitalis (View WebSite) is a self-professed witch, pagan priest, wiccan, goth, author, DJ, artisan, empath, tarot card reader and spiritual counselor who offers divination services, public rituals, handfasting, blessings, guided meditations, healing work, chakra alignment, exorcisms and herbal crafts.
  • Venus Satanas (View WebSiteView Psychic WebSiteView Blog) is a self-professed satanist, wiccan, tarot card reader, seller of satanic ritual items and psychic who claims she can pronounce curses and summon infernal deities.
  • Kindra Ravenmoon (View MySpaceView WebSite) is a satanist, demoness, dark arts alternative model, independent horror film actress, music journalist, musician, writer, goth and witch.

On the spiritual satanist blog, Venus Satanas said the following about Jade Sol Luna’s “Masters Of Invocation” CD:

Venus Satanas: “I have something very special for you – I was invited by Jade Luna, and Devonia of Legatus Records to record a track for their upcoming CD release, titled ‘Masters of Invocation’. The style of music for this project is labeled as ‘Dark Ambient’. It is music that is appropriate for the ritual chamber. According to Pagan Radio network, this is ‘Truly original and unique devotional Neo-Pagan music!’

If you visit the Myspace page for ‘Jade Sol Luna Music’ you can hear the contributing artists, Jade Luna, Raven Digitalis, and Helene DelCroix. My favorite track in their playlist is an amazing chanted invocation of Hecate.

According to Jade Luna, ‘The people I chose for the CD all have a deep practice in what they do’. Jade said that those who are involved with this project are ‘people from Various left handed paths invoking deities of the underworld.’

I was honored when they invited me to contribute to their new CD, ‘Masters of Invocation’. I agreed and I recorded a ritual invocation for this CD a few months later. This was recorded during a personal ritual where I lit a gold candle [Sol] that was representative of ‘power’ while I chanted four specific Infernal names as an invocation. While I did this, I envisioned my voice reaching all around the world to help others discover and connect with Satanism, to inspire others to find their own ‘power’ within!” (Text ReferenceScreencap Reference)

Venus Satanas also claimed that “bizarre miracles” manifested at Jade Sol Luna’s seminars, which allegedly involved crows lining up outside the window of the seminar building and a lightning storm occurring only over the place where the seminar was being held (Ref).

Jade Sol Luna (a fanatic devotee of Hecate) also loves to reference the following Hecate Invocation from 220 BC:

“O Nether and Nocturnal, and Infernal, Goddess of Dark, Quiet and Frightful One, O You who have Your Meal amid the Graves, Night, Darkness, Broad Chaos: Necessity Hard to escape are You; You’re Moira and Erinys, Torment, Justice and Destroyer, And You keep Kerberos in Chains, with Scales Of Serpents are You dark, O You with Hair Of Serpents, Serpent-girded, who drink Blood, Who bring Death and Destruction, and who feast On Hearts, Flesh Eater, who devour Those Dead Untimely, and You who make Grief resound And spread Madness, come to my Sacrifices, And now for me do You fulfill this Matter.”

Even more disturbing are Jade Sol Luna’s satanic CD art, pictures of his Dark Goddess altar in his house (the goddess apparently prefers to be a blonde), a picture of Jade holding a human skull and a picture of Jade meditating in a cemetary on some sort of demon cloth (Screencap Reference):

Furthermore, Jade Sol Luna dressed in a long, black robe and officiated as the head priest in some sort of wiccan / satantic / pagan ritual (as evidenced by the people sitting in a chair within a pentagram, encircled with candles and other ritual items). Screencap Reference.

One cannot help to wonder if the human skulls that Jade Sol Luna possesses have been cleared with the police or FBI. Where exactly did Jade Sol Luna obtain his human skulls from?

Books & CDs By Jade Sol Luna

Strange enough, Jade Sol Luna reviewed his own books and CDs under his lesser known name of “Jyoti Chandrananda” (Ref)!

Books:

  • Hecate II: The Awakening of Hydra
  • Hecate: Death, Transition and Spiritual Mastery

CDs:

  • Scorpio Invocation
  • Queen of the Crossroads
  • Zodiac Hymns
  • Silver Moon, Black Sun
  • Prakriti Vidya
  • Aghori Kali – The Ambient Journey of a Skull Girl
  • Embracing Goddess as Destroyer
  • Masters of Invocation

Jade Sol Luna – In Conclusion

This is the type of person that the Shadow of the Guru film and SotG website advocates for and expects others to blindly accept as an authority on cults and gurus!

Why would an “anti-cult” film cite Jade Luna (of all people) as an authority on cults and gurus in the first place? Jade Luna and Joan Radha Bridges (the creator of the Shadow of the Guru documentary and an alleged sexual molestation victim of Swami Muktananda) are very good friends. As a matter of fact, Joan Radha Bridges hosted a seminar for Jade Sol Luna in her house in Atlanta and allowed Jade to worship her Goddess statue there. As it turns out, Joan Radha Bridges has her own Goddess statue (very similar to the one owned by Jade Luna) that is made in her exact likeness because it appears that Joan thinks she is a Goddess (which might explain why she wore a huge, red bindi on her forehead during the filming of the Shadow of the Guru trailer)!

One could certainly make the case that Jade Sol Luna is very cultish, engages in cultish practices & rituals and advocates for cultish beliefs. The followers of the Dark Goddess that Jade Sol Luna worships (and for whom he created an entire altar, replete with a four and half foot tall statue) were typically described as belonging to the “Hecate Cult” or the “Cult of Hecate”.

The Shadow of the Guru trailer and website would have us believe that it is wrong to believe in Gurus, but it is OKAY to believe in Satan, Lucifer, wicca, tarot card readers, psychics, reiki practitioners, astrologers, dark magicians, Goddess statues and Goddess cults. Shocking!

Barry Pittard And ‘Shadow of the Guru’ Website

Visit the Shadows of the Guru Busters blog

Barry Pittard (Pic 01Pic 02) is an ex-devotee of the Indian Guru Sathya Sai Baba and followed the Guru from 1976 – 1999. During his devotee phase, Barry Pittard eulogized Sathya Sai Baba as God Incarnate and the Avatar of the Age.

Barry Pittard is:

  1. An extensively self-solicited & self-appointed critic of Sathya Sai Baba on the internet.
  2. A main spokesperson for the Anti-Sai Movement.
  3. An alleged “International Coordinator” for the Anti-Sai Movement.
  4. The head of “media relations” for the bogus F.D.S.S.B. (Former Devotees Of Sathya Sai Baba) “Global Coalition”.
  5. A free-press-release junkie who released his full contact details (including phone number, address and email address) on numerous free “press release” websites.
  6. An obsessive propagandist who has sent thousands of Anti-Baba emails to an entire spectrum of individuals all around the world.
  7. A smear-tactic-extraordinaire who obsessively accuses Sathya Sai Baba of being a raping, killing and homosexual serial pedophile who runs “elite pedophile rings” and people trafficking rings throughout the world (although no independent media or legal organizations have ever confirmed or implicated Sathya Sai Baba or the Sai Organisation in any illegal activities)!
  8. An inciter of violence against Sathya Sai Baba, Sai Devotees and Jews.
  9. An online & offline stalker of various Sai Devotees, making ridiculous “pedophile ring” accusations (yes, apparently a Sai Devotee is running a “pedophile ring” in a security-laden building in New York!) and outing people as homosexuals.

Is Barry Pittard A ‘Professor’?

Joan Radha Bridges released an official trailer for the Shadow of the Guru documentary on YouTube (Ref) that dishonestly and fraudulently described Barry Pittard as a “Professor”. Prior to the Shadow of the Guru website, Barry Pittard never referred to himself as a “Professor” and never divulged any alleged credentials he may possess that would entitle him the status of “Professor”.

Barry Pittard allegedly taught English at the Whitefield campus in India between 1978-79 (which Pittard cannot objectively substantiate with any kind of verifiable documentation). In 1978-79, the Whitefield campus belonged to the Bangalore University in Karnakata and only offered undergraduate classes. Barry Pittard taught (allegedly) at that campus before it became associated with Sathya Sai Baba’s name and before it became a prestigious University. Barry Pittard was not required to have academic credentials to teach at that Whitefield campus (the only qualification being that he could speak English) and he was unpaid and regarded as a volunteer.

On the Shadow of the Guru website, Barry Pittard’s profile states:

Barry Pittard: “Was deeply devoted to Sai Baba – who is arguably the most powerful Indian guru in history – for 25 years. At his behest, and as an unpaid service, taught all three years intake in the Humanities degree course at the Sathya Sai College at Whitefield, via Bangalore, South India for most of 1977-1978.”

Needless to say, from 1999 – 2010, Barry Pittard never claimed that he taught a “humanities degree course” at the Whitefield campus. This is new information. Barry Pittard repeatedly claimed that he taught English at the Whitefield campus for two years, not “three years” (as erroneously alleged on the Shadow of the Guru website). 1977 + 1978 = 2 years at the most. It is also significant to note that despite Barry Pittard’s claim of teaching a “humanities degree course”, the Whitefield campus only offered undergraduate classes at that time (Ref).

Barry Pittard & Sathya Sai Baba’s Powers:

Amusingly, Barry Pittard still believes (even after his defection from the Sai Movement) that Sathya Sai Baba possesses genuine paranormal powers:

Barry Pittard: “From November 1975, I began to experience many profound and beautiful phenomena. Wherever I travelled in the world, they manifested far away from, yet were often clearly related to, his physical presence on the planet. By November 26,1977, I first caught sight of him. I had mentally prayed, telling no one else, that on my arrival in Puttaparthy, he would come right up from wherever he was and personally greet me. I had just arrived when he mounted the stage, about to speak. I sat next to a well known Sai Baba devotee and friend Nanda Kishore of Arsenal, London and other men from the Russell Square Sai Baba centre to which we belonged. Sai Baba was about to speak into the microphone. He looked across a gap of two or more hundred yards, stopped what he was doing, crossed the broad stage, looking at me most of the time, then did something I have never in hundreds of public appearances seen him do. He abandoned security, and still maintaining – unmistakably – eye to eye contact with me, walked right into the crowds of seated men and made a track right to me and stood for a long time with his hand on my head in blessing. He certainly seemed to say, ‘Hullo Barry,’ exactly as he had done in a dream in London around June 1976, but I could have been mistaken because singing was taking place. I have had thousands of experiences that transcend scientific or intellectual explanation. Although he undoubtedly fakes miracles, plagiarizes the sayings of others, and makes many mistakes in his predictions and in his statements about history, my opinion differs from a few of my esteemed colleagues among his former followers. I have many times experienced supranormal phenomena related to him, which there is no explaining away. Unlike countless devotees and former devotees, I do not think that he DOES these phenomena as such. I think that some principle that we have not yet scientifically understood is at work, as it were THROUGH him, and, beyond, in connection with him. I also think that there needs to be unbiased enquiry into some of the implications of these powers (which relate to him whether the recipient is in or even far beyond his physical presence). Their sheer magnitude round the globe is bound to attract history’s final verdict that they are real, and do happen. (I have, by the way, found many rationalists and sceptics just as biased as many religionists). The world may have a degree of trouble on its hands. That powers of such profound beauty and outreach can mask and co-extend with deeds so heinous is surely of especial concern. That they markedly influence countless thousands of people in the highest echelons of power round the world is something worth questioning.” (Reference)

snowcrest.net/sunrise/Stbarry.htm
Barry Pittard: “A whole series of incidents which go far, far beyond the realm of coincidence. The first was in November 1975. I felt a powerful ‘inner knowing’ that I had to go into a book shop. A book in a vast bookstore popped off a shelf, Arnold Schulman’s ‘Baba.’ It was about Sai Baba. I decided to challenge the ‘power’ of its subject an hour or so later. From then on, I received vast and continuous experiences (physical miracles, ‘inner knowings’ that predicted with 100 percent accuracy), and more. It all defied all rational explanation. It also went far beyond traditional accounts of yogic siddhis (powers). Living around Sai Baba for three years, teaching at his Whitefield College for two years, I met many others from many countries who shared similar stories. There was something Cosmic pouring into an historic watershed. I then found Sai Baba doing what seemed to me the impossible. Getting hundreds of thousands of Indian people of all the trades and professions taking practical, far less selfish, social responsibility, instead of using karma as an excuse for lack of compassion.” (Reference)

Barry Pittard’s Smear Campaigns Exposed:

Barry Pittard never (ever) witnessed a single incident of alleged abuse by Sathya Sai Baba. Nor was Barry Pittard ever sexually abused by Sathya Sai Baba. Therefore, why does Barry Pittard appoint himself as a proxy defender of alleged victims? Are alleged victims incompetent? Are alleged victim’s mothers and fathers incompetent as well? Not even one alleged victim and not even one alleged victim’s mother or father has even tried to file a basic police complaint or court case against Sathya Sai Baba in India (Ref).

The big question that Barry Pittard and other critics continually ignore is:

WHY should the Sai Organisation resort to the legalistic process of “mandated reporting” regarding internet rumors when all of the alleged victims (without exception) and all of their mothers, fathers and relatives (without exception) have all failed and refused to resort to the legalistic process of “mandated reporting” themselves against the Sai Organisation?

Barry Pittard’s argument is reverse logic. Instead of harping on the legal and moral duties of the Sai Organisation, he should be focusing on the legal and moral duties of alleged victims and their mothers and fathers (all of whom have never filed any sort of legalistic complaints in India against Sathya Sai Baba).

Needless to say, Barry Pittard has a long and established history of distortions, lies, defamations and libels.

Of course, none of these things are surprising considering that Barry Pittard is allied with Bisexual & Psychic Trance Medium Conny Larsson and Child Porn Purveyor RFJ Sandt, Pathological Liar Robert Priddy and Perverted Fetishist Sanjay Dadlani. Barry Pittard is also a staunch promoter of New Age Advocate & Reincarnator Alan Kazlev and Guru & UFO Promoter Timothy Conway (who actually believes that Sathya Sai Baba may have molested alleged victims like aliens are alleged to do through abductions!).

Barry Pittard’s Secrecy & Confidentiality Ploys:

Barry Pittard continually attempts to con the general public by making all sorts of criminal, unsubstantiated and unverifiable allegations against Sathya Sai Baba and then masks his attacks with “secrecy” and “confidentiality” ploys. For example, Barry Pittard can often be seen saying things like:

Barry Pittard: “Responsible and non-sensationalist Media, institutions and other bona fide investigators or enquirers can contact me…we are strongly safeguarding the details of the vast majority who wished their harrowing accounts not to be made public – or in some cases not unless there were bona fide court or governmental or institutional investigations.”

All of the negative media against Sathya Sai Baba was the result of critic’s behind-the-scenes subterfuge, unremitting propaganda and “e-bombing campaigns”. Critics (including Barry Pittard) even boasted on Anti-Sai websites how they were responsible for and involved with various negative media exposures against Sathya Sai Baba. This holds true for The Secret Swami, The Divine Downfall Interview, The Seduced Program, The Unesco Withdrawal, The U.S. State Dept. Warning, The Guardian Article By Paul Lewis, Michelle Goldberg’s Salon.com Article, India Today, NineMSN Channel 9, etc., etc., etc.

Consequently, Barry Pittard had every opportunity to provide his alleged “secret” and “confidential” evidence and/or testimonies to various media and independent journalists sympathetic with his cause. Despite this irrefutable fact, no media and no journalist has ever documented or confirmed a single case of alleged pedophilia, murder or human trafficking against Sathya Sai Baba or the Sai Organization. Nor have any legitimate court cases been filed against the Guru first-hand by any alleged victim in India.

Because alleged victims (and their mothers and fathers) have all (without exception) refused to file basic police complaints, court cases or public grievances in India against Sathya Sai Baba (strongly suggesting that no children were ever abused), Barry Pittard is now resorting to “confidentiality” and “secrecy” ploys so he will not be held publicly accountable for his disinformation, defamations and libels against Sathya Sai Baba and others.

The only people guilty of running “massive disinformation and cover-up campaigns” are Barry Pittard and Ex-Devotees who have attacked hundreds of Sai Devotees & Non-Devotees alike and who have created hundreds of webpages to defame, libel and smear Gerald Joe Moreno and hundreds of webpages to defame, libel and smear Sathya Sai Baba.

The Shadow of the Guru film apparently needs to resort to deceit in order to bolster the perceived credibility of Barry Pittard, a man who has proven himself (time and again) to be thoroughly obsessed with Sathya Sai baba and a pathological prevaricator.

It is also unknown who interviewed and filmed Barry Pittard in Australia and who footed the bill.

Barry Pittard, Joan R. Bridges & Shadow of the Guru

Barry Pittard is directly associated with the Shadow of the Guru website and related “anti-cult” documentary. See for yourself:

  • Helene Delcroix (View MySpace Page) is a self-professed wiccan, satanist, clairvoyant, psychic, astrologer, tarot card reader, black magician, fortune teller and parapsychologist.
  • Raven Digitalis (View WebSite) is a self-professed witch, pagan priest, wiccan, Goth, author, DJ, artisan, empath, tarot card reader and spiritual counselor who offers divination services, public rituals, handfasting, blessings, guided meditations, healing work, chakra alignment, exorcisms and herbal crafts.
  • Venus Satanas (View WebSiteView Psychic WebSiteView Blog) is a self-professed satanist, wiccan, tarot card reader, seller of satanic ritual items and psychic who claims she can pronounce curses and summon infernal deities.
  • Kindra Ravenmoon (View MySpaceView WebSite) is a satanist, demoness, dark arts alternative model, independent horror film actress, music journalist, musician, writer, Goth and witch.

Joan Radha Bridges is so devoted to Jade Sol Luna’s dark philosophy, she actually hosted a seminar for him in her house in Atlanta and allowed him to worship her Goddess statue there. On Joan Radha Bridges’ MySpace page (which is now set to private), she referred to Jade Sol Luna as her “teacher” and claims to follow the dark path of “La Sera”, which means “The Left Hand of Wicca”. Jade Sol Luna made a CD entitled “La Sera” and his visual depiction for that path is clearly Satanic: (Picture Reference).

La Sera is based on what Jade Sol Luna calls “Nirrtibhava Tantra” (Nirrti being the Hindu Goddess of death and corruption) that is associated with the fierce Goddess Kalika Devi. Even more disturbing are pictures of Joan Radha Bridges engaged in tantric meditation while holding a human skull in her hands (Pic Link)! Jade Sol Luna also figures prominently on Joan Radha Bridges’ Shadow of the Guru website and associated YouTube trailer. See for yourself:

These are the type of people that “Professor” Barry Pittard endorses, promotes and associates himself with! Barry Pittard would have us believe that it is wrong to believe in Gurus, but that it is OKAY to believe in and trust “anti-cult” activists like Joan Radha Bridges and Jade Sol Luna who advocate for Satan, Lucifer, Goth, Wicca, tarot, psychics, reiki, astrology, dark magic, left-hand paths, Goddess statues and Goddess cults. Shocking!

Mary Garden And ‘Shadow of the Guru’ Website

Visit the Shadows of the Guru Busters blog

Mary Garden was born in Whakatane, New Zealand in 1950. She went to Waikato University & Hamilton Teachers College in 1966 from where she graduated with a B.Ed and a Teachers College Diploma. After a year’s teaching and obtaining a Diploma in Teaching from the NZ Department of Education, she spent a year doing post-graduate studies at the University of Auckland. She abandoned her studies in 1973 to go to India where she spent seven years exploring Eastern mysticism and becoming sexually entangled with various gurus. In 1980 Mary Garden settled in Queensland, Australia, married, had two children and became an Australian citizen.

Mary Garden’s wrote a book entitled “The Serpent Rising: A journey of spiritual seduction” that was based on her alleged experiences with various gurus in India (i.e., Rajneesh Osho, Sathya Sai Baba and Balyogi Premvarni) during the 1970’s. Mary Garden also co-authored “Neo Tantra: Bhagwan Rajneesh on Sex Love Prayer and Transcendence” with Bernard Gunther (Refs: 010203).

Mary Garden’s Views About Meditation:

In an article entitled “Can Meditation Be Bad for You”, Mary Garden made the argument that people who practice meditation can frequently be seen to be depressed, neurotic, psychotic, suicidal, given to hallucinations, withdrawn, obsessive, mentally imbalanced, emotionally imbalanced, fearful and anxious. Mary Garden cited about a dozen references all warning about the severe side effects of meditation and how mystical experiences may actually be caused by seizures or a brain malfunction due to sensory deprivation and decreased blood flow to the parietal lobe.

Amusingly, Mary Garden confessed that she was an ardent practitioner of meditation in the 1970’s (meaning that her alleged experiences with various gurus during that time may have been distorted, exaggerated, imagined or hallucinated as the result of her rigid and mind-altering meditation practices):

Mary Garden: “I meditated a lot in the 1970s and thought I was superior to those who didn’t. Thankfully I didn’t have a breakdown (though sometimes I was surely ‘out of my mind’). I had all sorts of bizarre and strange experiences and in the early days often felt bliss and ecstasy. There were a few occasions where I felt as though I was ‘one with the universe’, and I once began hallucinating that the trees outside were vibrating with white light, convinced I could hear the sacred Om sound booming through the Himalayan night…When I finally gave up on seeking enlightenment in the late 1970s and returned to worldly life, I also gave up meditating–except for the occasional sitting still for a few minutes here and there, watching my breath in the Vipassana way.”

In the 1970’s Mary Garden apparently experienced the advanced, psychotic and hallucinatory manifestations of meditation when she claimed she saw trees “vibrating with white light”, heard the Om mantra “booming through the Himalayan night”, had an experience of cosmic consciousness, felt her forehead “blazing with light”, imagined turning into a demon (discussed later on this page), experienced strange symptoms of kundalini arousal and sometimes felt that she was “surely out of my mind”. Mary Garden also discussed her depression, paranoia, desperation, anger, anxiety and homicidal tendencies during that time.

Consequently, how is one to give much credence to Mary Garden’s alleged experiences with Rajneesh, Sathya Sai Baba and Balyogi Premvarni when she was “hallucinating” (her word) and mentally unstable (due to her meditation practices) at that time? Thank you, Mary Garden! Mary Garden also recalled her alleged experiences almost a decade after they happened (“The Serpent Rising” was first published in 1988).

Mary Garden’s Smear Campaign Against Leo Rebello:

Dr. Leo Rebello, N.D., Ph.D., D.Sc., F.F.Hom, MBA, is the Director of Natural Health Centre, Bombay. He has delivered over 10,000 lectures in 63 countries (including WHO, UNAIDS, UNESCO, UNDP, UNEP, UN-HABITAT conferences), has written 30 books and has been interviewed by the world media.

Leo Rebello alleged that the publisher for Mary Garden’s book “The Serpent Rising” contacted him for a book review. Since the request mentioned negative information about various gurus, Leo Rebello (an Anti-Guru advocate) contacted Mary Garden expressing an interest to review her book. As a result, Mary Garden sent Leo Rebello an autographed copy. After reading “The Serpent Rising”, Leo Rebello informed Mary Garden that he refused to review the book because he considered it “semi-pornographic”. As a result, Mary Garden teamed together with Ex-Devotees of Sathya Sai Baba and publicly smeared Leo Rebello:

Leo Rebello: “Now let us come to Mary Garden’s book The Serpent Rising, with which this nuisance started. Mary Garden of Australia has documented some of her forays into sex, drugs, and vagrancy in that book. Here are some nuggets: Sai Baba, she says, is a hermaphrodite & homosexual – page 44 and talks of surrendering to him – page 16. Then she runs away from him because he played footsie with her but did not call her to his bedroom. She is therefore disappointed and runs away to Rishikesh in the Himalayas. There she gets pregnant from Balyogi – page 203. She then aborts a 4-month fetus (a boy according to the nurse who puts the fetus in the dustbin) in a Delhi Nursing Home and feels it was a murder – page 211. Next she has encounters with Rajneesh in his dark chambers in Pune, etc. etc. The cover page shows Rajneesh working on her. Prior to meeting all these ‘unholy men’ like Satya Sai Baba, Balyogi Premvarni and Rajneesh (her words), Mary enjoyed drugs & sex with older men in Auckland, by the time she was 16 – page 5. Infact her sexual experiments started at a very young age when the neighbour took her and her sister in a hen house and made them do felatio. And such a pornographic book she has dedicated to her two children. The details about her husband are missing. I received the said book on 2nd December, 2003. After reading it I wrote to her that I was disappointed with her book and I will NOT be reviewing the same since it was semi-pornographic. So, she got wild and pressed into service Robert Priddy ( rpriddy@online.no; robrei@start.no;); Ravi Chandra ( RaviChandra@everyday.com); and these other persons with emails like satyavijaya@myrealbox.com; r.v.d.sandt@hetnet.nl; dark_knight_9@yahoo.com; anir@start.no; ompukalani@hotmail.com; rover@jcputty.com; ex_baba@hetnet.nl; rero@chello.no (I do NOT know any one of them), and they started spamming me.” (Reference)

It is a fact that Mary Garden, Robert Priddy and various Ex-Devotees herded together and collectively smeared Leo Rebello on the internet. Robert Priddy (an LSD advocate and a known defamer and libeler of others) publicly published Leo Rebello’s emails (including Mary Garden’s responses) on angeltowns.com/members/tanik (which was subsequently deleted for defamatory content). Although Leo Rebello’s emails were defamatory as well, he never dispersed his accusations publicly like Mary Garden and Robert Priddy did. Robert Priddy duplicated Rebello’s emails on his Anti-Sai websites and removed them only after Leo Rebello threatened him with a million-dollar legal suit for defamation.

Mary Garden – Promiscuity Rising:

“The Serpent Rising” was originally published as a work of fiction and Mary Garden even resorted to using the pseudonym “Helena Pearson”. In an interview with Kelly Worden and co-host Robert Humelbaugh, Mary Garden confessed that when she first wrote “The Serpent Rising”, she was still “confused and ambivalent about her experiences” in India. Putting these intriguing facts aside, it is undeniable that Mary Garden’s book “The Serpent Rising” is “semi-pornographic” in nature. The book revolves almost exclusively around Mary Garden’s sexual desires and sexual experiences.

Mary Garden’s strange sexual experiences started at the tender of six when she began to have recurring nightmares of demon-like creatures crawling over her and sliding their slippery hands up & down and in-between her legs. While still a child, Mary Garden claimed that a neighbor forced her and her younger sister into performing oral sex on him in a hen house. Although her younger sister remembered the incident vividly, Mary Garden claimed she had no recollection of the event. When Mary Garden was sixteen, she stated her first year at College was a “constant round of sex, alcohol, parties and sometimes experimenting with drugs” (including LSD). These stories are important to remember because they provide an illuminating backdrop to Mary Garden’s alleged encounters with Sathya Sai Baba, Balyogi Premvarni and Rajneesh.

Mary Garden Lusted After Sathya Sai Baba:

Mary Garden blindly, instantly and gullibly believed (admittedly) that Sathya Sai Baba was God incarnate based solely on stories she heard about him and his miracles. Mary Garden decided to visit Sathya Sai Baba and spent a total of four months with him in India and he completely ignored her (not even looking at her). The only attention Mary Garden received from Sathya Sai Baba was when he touched her toes with his own while standing close to her. That’s it.

After four months of being constantly ignored, Mary Garden had a couple of “murky dreams” about Sathya Sai Baba when she was seriously ill and dehydrated from dysentery. The first “murky dream” that Mary Garden had was of floating, dancing and embracing Sathya Sai Baba in the sky while both of them were naked. Mary Garden had an “intense sexual arousal” and a “deep almost unbearable longing for an orgasm”. Just when she thought that Sathya Sai Baba “would enter her” with his penis, he would disappear (which happened several times) and she compared this erotic interaction to that of Radha and Krishna. Mary Garden claimed that in the dream she could see entire galaxies of stars sparkling in Sai Baba’s eyes, his skin felt like velvet, she was in “complete ecstasy” and her heart was “exploding with love”. When she awoke from the dream, she said: “For hours afterwards I lay there feeling as if I was bathing in the sweet aftermath of an explosive orgasm.”

In Mary Garden’s second “murky dream” of Sathya Sai Baba, she claimed the Guru was floating six inches off the ground and he had a “gigantic long penis, resembling the head and neck of an ancient dinosaur”. The “monstrous penis” approached the crowd and circulated among the people, nudging and caressing them. When Mary Garden awoke from this dream, she was sweating profusely due to her illness. Strangely, this dream happens to be the only one that Mary Garden discusses in interviews when she speaks against Sathya Sai Baba (no mention is made to her sexual dream in which she desired coitus with the guru). Disturbingly, Mary Garden subsequently changed the details of this dream and now claims that Sathya Sai Baba’s “monstrous penis” (instead of “nudging and caressing” people) actually wrapped itself around student’s necks and strangled them!

Flip-flopping, Mary Garden blindly, instantly and gullibly believed (admittedly) that Sathya Sai Baba was a fraud, a homosexual, a hermaphrodite, a sexual abuser and the Devil incarnate based solely on critical comments made to her by a woman named Joanna (who operated a restaurant called “Jo-Jo’s” in Bangalore). Because of Joanna’s critical comments, Mary Garden left Sathya Sai Baba and ran away to the Himalayas.

Mary Garden is currently a critic of Sathya Sai Baba and is closely allied with Ex Devotees (whose Anti-Sai websites she constantly references in interviews). Mary Garden’s defection from Sathya Sai Baba was based solely on rumors and gossip (which originated from Tal Brooke) that she never independently verified or confirmed for herself in any manner whatsoever.

Mary Garden has adamantly refused to say one word about Sai Baba critics Sanjay Dadlani, Tony O’Clery, Robert Priddy, Basava Premanand, Conny Larsson, Reineir Van Der Sandt, Barbara Dent, UsedByBaba and Alan Kazlev’s falsified and fraudulent sexual abuse allegations against Gerald Joe Moreno (a Pro-Sai Activist). Mary Garden’s absolute silence regarding these malicious libels has strongly called into question her so-called “integrity”, “credibility” and “honesty”.

Mary Garden Lusted After Balyogi Premvarni:

Mary Garden’s alleged involvement with Balyogi Premvarni is perhaps the most disturbing (and lengthy) section in “The Serpent Rising”. A chronological summary goes like this:

  1. When Mary Garden first visited Balyogi Premvarni, she was smitten by his “extraordinary beauty”, “couldn’t stop looking at him”, was “completely mesmerized” by him and was “overcome by his power and his beauty”.
  2. Balyogi Premvarni allegedly kissed and had sex with Mary Garden under the pretext of awakening her kundalini and she was awed by the softness of his skin and the fluidity of his movements. After sex with the yogi, Mary Garden felt her heart opening and being flooded with love. Mary Garden claimed that she did, in fact, experience signs and symptoms of kundalini arousal during and after sex with the yogi, which included: “dizziness”, feeling a “a fiery liquid moving at the base of the spine, at the tailbone, and rising upwards to the top of the head”, being “energized” after sex, her mind becoming “still and peaceful”, feeling her forehead “blazing with light”, envisioned herself (as in the case of Sai Baba) as Radha and the yogi as Krishna and always felt in an “orgasmic state” after sex.
  3. Mary Garden hoped the yogi would become a householder so she could marry him.
  4. As in the case of Sai Baba, Mary Garden felt that Balyogi Premvarni might be a madman or a demon and decided to run away.
  5. Mary Garden changed her mind about running away and decided to stay with Balyogi Premvarni.
  6. Mary Garden had her mother wire her some money and decided to leave Balyogi Premvarni, informed him or her plans and left. Although she left the yogi’s ashram for good she left her passport, birth certificate and other references at the yogi’s ashram (how she was going to get her money or leave the country without a passport remains a mystery).
  7. Mary Garden returned to the yogi’s ashram to pick up her passport, birth certificate and references and angrily left the ashram again.
  8. While in Delhi, a devotee of Balyogi Premvarni found Mary Garden after being instructed by the yogi where to find her and asked her to return.
  9. Mary Garden returned to Balyogi Premvarni’s ashram and had an experience of cosmic consciousness, which the yogi allegedly bestowed on her. Mary garden resumed having sex with the yogi and continued to have symptoms of kundalini awakening.
  10. Balyogi Premvarni predicted that Mary Garden would leave him, which she adamantly denied would ever happen.
  11. Mary Garden became pregnant with Balyogi Premvarni’s baby and had an abortion. The attendant told Mary Garden “it’s a boy, you slut” as she tossed the fetus into a metal bucket.
  12. Mary Garden began to have intense feelings of hate and anger and said: “I sometimes expected to see horns sticking up out of my head and my upper eye-teeth elongated and hanging over my bottom lip. I would feel a peculiar sensation in these two teeth and I’d sense them growing and protruding, though they never did.” As in the case of Sai Baba, Mary Garden again began to see Balyogi Premvarni as evil and demonic.
  13. Balyogi Premvarni had a new female devotee and Mary Garden was jealous and infuriated. Mary Garden said: “My lotus flowers were no longer in bloom. I burned some of the poems I had written for Swamiji. I contemplated burning down the ashram or even killing Swamiji.”
  14. Mary Garden ran away from Balyogi Premvarni again.
  15. Despite all this trauma, Mary Garden continued to write letters to Balyogi Premvarni.
  16. Mary Garden decided to return once again to visit Balyogi Premvarni.
  17. Mary Garden finally left Balyogi Premvarni, this time for good.

Consequently, Mary Garden’s alleged involvement with Balyogi Premvarni was one of infatuation, lust, sex and desire. Mary Garden found Balyogi Premvarni to be sexually attractive, obviously desired to have sex with him, found sex with him to be fulfilling, wished he would become a householder so she could marry him, became jealous and infuriated when he acquired another female devotee and entertained thoughts of homicide and violence to revenge what she perceived to be a betrayal. Mary Garden conceded that when she wrote “The Serpent Rising”, she was still “confused and ambivalent” about her experiences in India and one could certainly reason that her book was an act of revenge against her ex-lover who dumped her for someone else.

Mary Garden And Sex Guru Osho / Rajneesh:

After Mary Graden’s disastrous relationship with Balyogi Premvarni, she returned to Australia to teach for six months before returning to India to join the Rajneesh cult. Mysteriously, Mary Garden did not go into depth about her involvement with Rajneesh and the copious amounts of sex that must have surely transpired during her year-long stay at his ashram in Poona (where she was initiated as a sannyasin under the name “Ma Prem Sagara”). The book cover to “The Serpent Rising” shows Mary Garden receiving a personal blessing from Rajneesh (meaning that she was no novitiate, but that she was heavily involved in the cult and their unrestrained practices of madman screaming, uncontrollable laughing, flailing dances, spaced-out meditations and wanton sex).

Mary Garden even helped Bernard Gunther with the compilation of his book for Rajneesh entitled “Neo Tantra: Bhagwan Rajneesh on Sex Love Prayer and Transcendence”.

Mary Garden “The Serpent Rising” – In Conclusion:

In conclusion, Mary Garden’s book “The Serpent Rising” is more believable as a work of fiction. Mary Garden’s motives, confusion and ambivalence behind her book casts a serious shadow of doubt on her credibility, reliability and accuracy as an author. Mary Garden struggled (and still struggles) very hard to portray herself as a “victim” of cults and blamed various gurus for her naiveté and sexual exploits under the guise of spirituality. Since Mary Garden explicitly stated she was not hurt or damaged by her encounter with Sathya Sai Baba, one is left to wonder why she speaks against him the most. It is suspected Mary Garden does this because it is far easier for her to talk about other’s alleged sexual improprieties rather than her own.

As a highlight to Mary Garden’s strange obession with sex, she authored a poetry book in 1992 entitled “Coming Together: a Journey through Passion”, which was written “about the beauty and power of sex without using the language of guilt of hostility”. A reviewer of the book said that some of the poems and cartoons (of a naked couple) in the book may “shock” and “offend” readers. Taking into consideration Mary Garden’s rather risque life history, why should anyone be surprised?

“Mary, Mary, quite contrary, How does your garden grow?”

This is the type of person that the Shadow of the Guru film and SotG website advocates for and expects others to blindly accept as an authority on cults, gurus and alleged sexual improprieties!

Mary Garden, Joan R. Bridges & Shadow of the Guru

Mary Garden is directly associated with the Shadow of the Guru website and related “anti-cult” documentary. See for yourself:

Shadow of the Guru is the name for an “anti-cult” website and “anti-cult” documentary owned by “CEO” Joan Radha Bridges (a self-professed psychic, reiki master, Goddess and tantra practitioner who is into kinky, sexual, provocative, fetish, lesbian, Goth and Shiva Shakti imagery).
