Tulasi Srinivas ‘Winged Faith: Rethinking Globalization and Religious Pluralism through the Sathya Sai Movement’

Tulasi Srinivas is an assistant professor of anthropology at Emerson College and is the author of the book “Winged Faith: Rethinking Globalization and Religious Pluralism through the Sathya Sai Movement” (448 pages, 18 illlus., ISBN: 978-0-231-14933-4). Tulasi Srinivas’ book “Winged Faith” has been publicized on the internet and through Columbia University Press with the following summary:

The Sathya Sai global civil religious movement incorporates Hindu and Muslim practices, Buddhist, Christian, and Zoroastrian influences, and “New Age”-style rituals and beliefs. Shri Sathya Sai Baba, its charismatic and controversial leader, attracts several million adherents from various national, ethnic, and religious backgrounds. In a dynamic account of the Sathya Sai movement’s explosive growth, Winged Faith argues for a rethinking of globalization and the politics of identity in a religiously plural world.

This study considers a new kind of cosmopolitanism located in an alternate understanding of difference and contestation. It considers how acts of “sacred spectating” and illusion, “moral stakeholding” and the problems of community are debated and experienced. A thrilling study of a transcultural and transurban phenomenon that questions narratives of self and being, circuits of sacred mobility, and the politics of affect, Winged Faith suggests new methods for discussing religion in a globalizing world and introduces readers to an easily critiqued yet not fully understood community. (Reference)

Prior to the publication of “Winged Faith”, Tulasi Srinivas presented her research on the Sathya Sai movement in a lecture and two abstracts entitled:

  • “The Body, Sex and the Democratization of Transparency: Rethinking Religion and Globalization through the Sathya Sai Movement”
  • “The Truant Ascetic: Transcendence and Escape in the Transnational Sathya Sai Movement”
  • “Building Faith: Religious Pluralism, Pedagogical Urbanism, and Governance in the Sathya Sai Sacred City”

As one can see, a more ‘neutral’ title was chosen for Tulasi Srinivas’ book.

For those unfamiliar with Sathya Sai Baba, it would appear that Tulasi Srinivas’ convoluted observations about the Sathya Sai movement are well thought out, impartial and well researched. For those who are familiar with Sathya Sai Baba, however, Tulasi Srinivas’ book “Winged Faith” is poorly researched, highly biased and heavily relies on “former followers” ‘anti’ internet material against the Guru.

To obtain a better understanding of the flaws and failings in Tulasi Srinivas’ book “Winged Faith”, it is best to read the “Notes” section first and then see how Tulasi Srinivas attempted to further and formulate various arguments using those notes.

The ‘Notes’ Section In ‘Winged Faith’ By Tulasi Srinivas

The “Notes” section in “Winged Faith” is very important because it reveals how poorly Tulasi Srinivas researched her information about the Sathya Sai movement, especially in relation to the controversial material about the Guru. Tulasi Srinivas conducted her research into the Sathya Sai movement from early 2001 through late 2009, interviewed Sathya Sai devotees, communicated with former followers of Sathya Sai Baba, made trips to Sathya Sai Baba’s ashram, attended various Sai Centers and made various updates to her book before its 2010 publication.

In the “Acknowledgements” section in her book (ix, x), Tulasi Srinivas said she presented portions of “Winged Faith” to the American Anthropological Association meetings in 2004 and 2005, the South Asia meetings at Madison, Wisconsin in 2004, the Society for Psychological Anthropology meetings in 2005, the American Academy of Arts and Science, the Institute for Religion and Culture at the University of Virginia and the Institute for Human Sciences, Vienna, in 2001.

Consequently, Tulasi Srinivas is no novice to the topic of Sathya Sai Baba and her tattered research cannot be attributed to unfamiliarity with the Sathya Sai movement. The following references were taken from the “Notes” section in “Winged Faith” with critiques and comments made by Gerald Moreno.

Notes; “Secrecy, Ambiguity, Truth, And Power”; Reference 74; Page 373: Tulasi Srinivas claimed the link http://www.saibaba-aclearview.com/contents1.html was removed from the internet. The link, however, is operable and was never removed from the internet.

Notes; “Secrecy, Ambiguity, Truth, And Power”; Reference 48; Page 372: Tulasi Srinivas stated that Joe ‘Gerald’ Moreno is a “devotee” of Sathya Sai Baba. Moreno is not a “devotee” of Sathya Sai Baba and this information was published on Moreno’s official FAQs Page in early 2005 (just after Moreno first got involved in the Sathya Sai controversy and created a FAQs page). It remains unknown where Tulasi Srinivas obtained her disinformation about Moreno being a “devotee” of Sathya Sai Baba.

Although Moreno runs the largest internet websites exposing the many smear campaigns waged against Sathya Sai Baba by critics and ex-devotees, Tulasi Srinivas never attempted to contact Moreno even once although she cited links to his websites. This glaring fact would seem to imply that Tulasi Srinivas was keener on obtaining ‘anti’ material from former followers rather than obtaining ‘pro’ material from Moreno.

Notes; “Secrecy, Ambiguity, Truth, And Power”; Reference 33; Page 371: Tulasi Srinivas selectively referred to Keith Ord’s allegations of “hugging and genital fondling” against Sathya Sai Baba. However, all other relevant information and details about Keith Ord’s allegations were purposely withheld.

In 1992, Keith Ord (who is openly a homosexual) was interviewed by a Dutch journalist named Piet van der Eijk for an article entitled “De Wonderdoener”. Keith Ord personally claimed that Sathya Sai Baba literally and miraculously transmogrified his penis into a vagina by clapping his hands over his head! Keith Ord made it very clear that Sathya Sai Baba was not a “hermaphrodite”, but that the Guru literally and miraculously turned his penis into a vagina by clapping his hands.

Although Keith Ord talked to Alexandra Nagel about the alleged events in his private interviews with the Guru, he never told her about the amazing (and quite frankly unbelievable) ‘penis-turned-vagina’ miracle that he related to Piet van der Eijk.

If Tulasi Srinivas revealed this information about Keith Ord to her colleagues and students, there is little doubt they would all laugh her out of Emerson College. It is safe to say that academics, scholars, college students and general readers would not likely accept Keith Ord as a credible and reliable reference in relation to Sathya Sai Baba and the Sathya Sai movement.

Of course, the question remains: Why did Tulasi Srinivas accept Keith Ord as a credible and reliable reference in relation to Sathya Sai Baba and the Sathya Sai movement?

Notes; “Secrecy, Ambiguity, Truth, And Power”; Reference 28; Page 371: Tulasi Srinivas claimed that Sathya ‘Satch’ Purcell alleged he was “sexually abused” by Sathya Sai Baba. However, all other relevant information and details about Sathya ‘Satch’ Purcell’s allegations were purposely withheld.

Satch Purcell (real name “Sathya Sai Purcell”) claimed after fourteen years of silence that Sathya Sai Baba “covertly grasped” his groin in the presence of his mother while entering the interview room at the Guru’s ashram. Needless to say, Sharon Purcell (Satch’s mother) never mentioned (in her letters to Glen Meloy) that her own son was inappropriately touched by Sathya Sai Baba (nor were any other ex-devotees aware of this information). Satch Purcell kept his allegation a secret for fourteen years until after the death of his mother (even though she was vehemently opposed to the Guru).

Satch Purcell’s entire “sexual abuse” allegation against Sathya Sai Baba is comprised of the following one sentence: “As I stepped into the room, Sai Baba held the door open and pressed his other hand firmly into my groin area and in a very concealed way.” So “concealed”, in fact, Satch Purcell’s mother did not see the event even though she was standing right behind him. The alleged contact only lasted a few seconds and this one sentence documents the entire act of alleged “sexual abuse” that Tulasi Srinivas mentioned in her book.

It remains unclear how many people would actually consider the alleged account of Satch Purcell to be “sexual abuse”. Is this information irrelevant to the allegations against Sathya Sai Baba? Tulasi Srinivas seems to think so as she purposely withheld this information from her readers.

Notes; “Secrecy, Ambiguity, Truth, And Power”; Reference 28; Page 371: Tulasi Srinivas claimed that Ullrich Zimmermann alleged he was “sexually abused” by Sathya Sai Baba. However, all other relevant information and details about Ullrich Zimmermann’s allegations were purposely withheld.

Ullrich Zimmermann is a New Age follower of Ramtha (an alleged 36,000 year-old entity as channeled through the psychic medium JZ Knight). Ullrich Zimmermann originally recalled his alleged experiences with Sathya Sai Baba while drunk at a Ramtha wine ceremony and after the 36,000 year-old entity commanded him through JZ Knight to “teach Sai Baba a lesson”. Ullrich Zimmermann described his experiences with Sathya Sai Baba as “white tantra” and explicitly stated (several times) that he was NOT sexually abused and his experiences were an “honor” conferred upon him!

Ullrich Zimmermann also claimed that Sathya Sai Baba instantaneously cured him of a long-term breathing ailment by materializing oil and applying it to his chest along the “kundalini line”.

And to top it all off, Ullrich Zimmermann actually claimed that Sathya Sai Baba literally and miraculously transmogrified his penis into a vagina (and vice versa) twice simply by snapping his fingers! In addition, Zimmermann also claimed he saw a flash of white light fly out the Guru’s penis! These are the ludicrous (and quite frankly unbelievable) stories that Tulasi Srinivas apparently needed to withhold from her readers so that her smears against Sathya Sai Baba would be more believable.

Furthermore, Robert Priddy (a former follower heavily referenced by Tulasi Srinivas in her book “Winged Faith”) alleged that people who believe in psychics and channelers belong to the “lunatic fringe” seen in cults, ashrams and new religious movements (Ref).

If Tulasi Srinivas revealed this information about Ullrich Zimmermann to her colleagues and students, there is little doubt they would all laugh her out of Emerson College. It is safe to say that academics, scholars, college students and general readers would not likely accept Ullrich Zimmermann as a credible and reliable reference in relation to Sathya Sai Baba and the Sathya Sai movement.

Of course, the question remains: Why did Tulasi Srinivas accept Ullrich Zimmermann as a credible and reliable reference in relation to Sathya Sai Baba and the Sathya Sai movement?

Notes; “Secrecy, Ambiguity, Truth, And Power”; Reference 28; Page 371: Tulasi Srinivas stated that “Ulrich Zimmermann’s account was originally videotaped and put on YouTube in mid-2006 but was removed two months later”. Actually, Ullrich Zimmermann’s accounts were first released in December 2006 on Blip.tv and in January 2007 on YouTube and they are still online and have never been removed from the internet (Refs: 0102). It would appear that Tulasi Srinivas failed to update this information from 2006 although her book was published in 2010.

Notes; “Illusion, Play, And Work In A Moral Community”; Reference 17; Page 364: Tulasi Srinivas cited Moreno’s website but misspelled his “saisathyasai.com” domain as “sathyasai.com”.

The correct link is:
http://www.saisathyasai.com/baba/Ex-Baba.com/A-Priddy/robert-priddy-deception.html

Tulasi Srinivas published the link as:
http://www.sathyasai.com/baba/Ex-Baba.com/A.Priddy/robert-priddy-deception.html

Since Tulasi Srinivas double-checked the links she published in her book (even claiming that various links were removed from the internet), one is left to wonder why she misspelled the link to Moreno’s webpage about Robert Priddy. Would it have to do with the fact that Tulasi Srinivas heavily relied on Robert Priddy’s ‘anti’ material against Sathya Sai Baba?

Robert Priddy (a caustic critic and defamer of Sathya Sai Baba who once hailed the Guru as God Incarnate) is an LSD Advocate who has falsely and fraudulently libeled Gerald Moreno as being “molested sexually” by Sathya Sai Baba (Refs: 0102030405). Robert Priddy also endorses and allies himself with Reinier van der Sandt, the ExBaba webmaster who has similarly libeled Gerald Moreno as being sexually abused by Sathya Sai Baba. If Robert Priddy has the temerity to publicly disperse falsified and fraudulent “sexual molestation” libels against Gerald Joe Moreno, what other falsified and fraudulent “sexual molestation” libels is Robert Priddy peddling against Sathya Sai Baba? Even more disturbing is Robert Priddy’s brazen acts of screencap fraud, pseudo-moralism, DMCA deceit, disgusting lie about Joy Thomas, ridiculous proxy IP accusations, fraudulently impersonating an official Sathya Sai Organization domain, and the laughable Sheila-Waring lie.

This is the type of con artist that Tulasi Srinivas deemed credible and reliable enough to cite in her book “Winged Faith” against Sathya Sai Baba and the Sathya Sai movement (see 361:43; 364:17; 364:25; 370:6; 371:24; 372:49: 376:20).

Notes; “Illusion, Play, And Work In A Moral Community”; Reference 13; Page 364: Tulasi Srinivas claimed “the Sathya Sai Organization uses the concept of leela fairly freely to describe the queue system and other organizational systems at Puttaparthi”. Tulasi Srinivas supported this absurd argument by saying that some Sathya Sai devotees believed the queue and other organizational systems at Puttaparthi were “leelas” (page 165). The Sathya Sai Organization has never made the claims that Tulasi Srinivas attributed to them. Tulasi Srinivas uses the terms “Sathya Sai devotees” and “Sathya Sai Organization” interchangeably although they are not the same and often makes blanket arguments against the entire Sathya Sai Organization based on the views of a few Sathya Sai devotees. This type of generalizing and false association is intellectually dishonest.

Notes; “Deus Loci”; Reference 5; Pages 358 & 359: Tulasi Srinivas made several profound errors about Robert Taliaferro Brooke (a former follower of Sathya Sai Baba and a fundamentalist Christian).

Tulasi Srinivas said, “One could argue that Tal Brooke was a spiritual tourist for the twenty odd years he was a Sathya Sai devotee.” In actuality, Tal Brooke was a Sathya Sai devotee for about four years, not “twenty odd years” as erroneously and falsely claimed by Tulasi Srinivas.

Tulasi Srinivas also claimed that Tal Brooke wrote “several books about the wonders of Sathya Sai Baba”. When Tal Brooke was a Sathya Sai devotee, he wrote a manuscript entitled “The Amazing Advent”. Sathya Sai Baba did not bless Tal Brooke’s manuscript and it was never published. Tal Brooke never wrote “several books” about the “wonders of Sathya Sai Baba”.

Tal Brooke published his first book (which was critical of Sathya Sai Baba) in 1976 under the title “Lord Of The Air”. It was republished in 1979 as “Sai Baba, Lord Of The Air”, renamed “Avatar of Night” in 1982 with a reprint in 1984, was renamed “Lord Of The Air: Tales of a Modern Antichrist” in 1990 and reprinted again as “Avatar of Night” in 1999.

Therefore, where exactly did Tulasi Srinivas obtain her complete disinformation regarding Tal Brooke? It baffles the mind that an academic and scholar like Tulasi Srinivas would publish such blatant distortions of the truth although she conducted nine years of research into the Sathya Sai movement (in which Tal Brooke figures prominently as a critic since 1976).

Notes; “Becoming God”; Reference 66; Page 358: Tulasi Srinivas referenced Kyra Kitts (a former follower of Sathya Sai Baba) but omitted all relevant information about her.

Kyra Kitts had her own website (“kyrakitts.net”, which is no longer online) for close to five years in which she solicited herself as a psychic, clairvoyant and spiritual healer who could perform in-person and long-distance healings. Kyra Kitts claimed to have been “overtly psychic since approximately age eleven” and claimed that H. H. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche began appearing to her in inner visions and spoke to her in Tibetan. She also claimed that Sathya Sai Baba appeared to her in a semi-awake/semi-asleep vision that radically changed her life.

When Kyra Kitts visited Sathya Sai Baba in India, she claimed being tormented with “bizarre sexual thoughts”, even in the Guru’s presence. Kyra Kitts claimed that while walking by the meditation bench behind the mandir, she psychically perceived Sathya Sai Baba “in his room masturbating, looking out his window, and laughing at the crowd”. Kyra Kitts said that Sathya Sai Baba looked like a “Fijian gorilla” and referred to the Guru as “Sai Bob, sex cowboy”. Kyra Kitts has/had numerous, chronic, physical ailments that affected her mentally (admittedly) for many years.

If Tulasi Srinivas revealed this information about Kyra Kitts to her colleagues and students, there is little doubt they would all laugh her out of Emerson College. It is safe to say that academics, scholars, college students and general readers would not likely accept Kyra Kitts as a credible and reliable reference in relation to Sathya Sai Baba and the Sathya Sai movement.

Of course, the question remains: Why did Tulasi Srinivas accept Kyra Kitts as a credible and reliable reference in relation to Sathya Sai Baba and the Sathya Sai movement?

Notes; “Becoming God”; Reference 24; Pages 353 & 354: Tulasi Srinivas cited Kevin R. D. Shepherd as a “biographer of Shirdi Sai Baba”. Kevin R. D. Shepherd is a vanity self-publisher who admitted he is not an academic and who admitted he dropped out of school at the age of fifteen. Kevin R. D. Shepherd is also a malicious critic of Sathya Sai Baba who has ridiculously accused the Guru of being “closely allied with terrorists” and who fanatically accused Moreno of being an “internet hit man” and an “internet terrorist” (Ref). This is the type of person that Tulasi Srinivas deemed credible enough to cite as a reference in her book.

Notes; “Introduction”; Reference 25; Page 349: Tulasi Srinivas attempted to malign a music group devoted to Sathya Sai Baba named “Lightstorm” and claimed they were “controversially named”. Tulasi Srinivas supported this argument by saying, “A former devotee indicated that Lightstorm was a kind of marijuana.”

A simple two-second Google search for “Lightstorm and Sai Baba” takes one directly to Lightstorm’s official website (which provides their email address).

Moreno emailed Lightstorm on June 23rd 2010 and asked them if there was any truth to the rumor that their name was chosen because it was associated with marijuana. On June 24th 2010, Moreno received an email that stated:

“Dear Atmaself, Joe – No TRUTH in that at all. The name came as a vision and then an actual lightning storm right after. Whoever told you the lie is crazy! I (Johnima) never took drugs of any kind, this body does not even like or take aspirins. Love & Light – Lightstorm ”

Why didn’t Tulasi Srinivas extend two minutes out of nine years of research to contact Lightstorm about the story behind their name? Why would an academic and scholar publish rumors and gossips if not with an ulterior motive to smear and malign?

On the official White House and Drug Policy website one can find an exhaustive list of street names for marijuana. “Lightstorm” is not included in the list although “Bubble Gum”, “African”, “Airplane”, “Astro Turf”, “Babysitter”, “Broccoli”, “Christmas Tree”, “Flower”, “Garbage”, “Giggle”, “Hawaiian”, “Northern Lights” and “Red Cross” are.

Moreno found a marijuana reference for Purple Lightstorm, which is also known as “Purple Cannabis” and “Lightstorm BX1”. Needless to say, the music group Lightstorm did not name their group “Purple Lightstorm” or “Lightstorm BX1”.

Would Tulasi Srinivas accuse the national Red Cross of being “controversially named” because “Red Cross” happens to be a known name for marijuana (with that name being listed on the official White House and Drug Policy website)? Apparently so.

It is exactly these types of shallow, trivial and mean-spirited jabs that call into question Tulasi Srinivas’ alleged ‘neutrality’ and so-called ‘research’. Tulasi Srinivas rather publish rumors and gossips from former followers rather than doing two minutes of footwork herself.

This type of biased behavior is not what one would expect from a credible and neutral academic.

Notes; “Introduction”; References 19 & 20; Page 349: Tulasi Srinivas cited India Today’s ‘Test Of Faith – A God Accused’ and Paul Lewis’ article ‘The Indian Living God, the Pedophilia Claims, and the Duke of Edinburgh Awards’ against Sathya Sai Baba.

Purposely suppressed, however, is the fact that former followers boasted about accomplishing these media exposures themselves.

About the India Today article, Hari Sampath (a former follower) said: “I had initiated and organized about 70 % of the major media stories on Sai Baba, including The Times, India Today, the Danish documentary, Salon.com and several others.”

About the India Today article, Barry Pittard (a former follower) said: “In 2000, I was a member of a small international group of former devotees which ran a number of potent exposure operations. In one of these, we got a 10-page cover story (December 4, 2000) in the prestigious mass circulation weekly magazine India Today. In eleven languages, millions of Indians read this publication, which is somewhat like a Time or Newsweek magazine for India and Indians abroad.”

About Paul Lewis’s article, Sanjay Dadlani (a former follower) said: “What you morons fail to realise is that these things take months of planning and co-ordinated research, especially by journalists and reporters of prestigious newspapers (such as the Times, Daily Telegraph, Australian Age, etc etc) who tend to go off and do their own research in the hope of turning up something new. We already knew about this issue months before the date of publication of course. In fact it was mooted as a front-page story, but at the last minute a development in a legal issue involving PM Tony Blair took precedence and the Sai Baba article was moved to Page 3. No matter, open the paper and it all goes BOOM! in your face … Sorry I couldn’t take part while I was busy participating in this development … Nice picture of the old faggot riding in his ridiculous golf buggy by the way. ;-) … We run the Exposé and the Exposé continues.” (Reference)

India Today and Paul Lewis knowingly withheld their behind-the-scenes collaboration with former followers. Is this information irrelevant to the Sathya Sai controversy? Tulasi Srinivas seems to think so as she purposely withheld this information from her readers.

Notes; “Becoming God”; References 22 & 23; Pages 353 & 355: Tulasi Srinivas published (several times) that Brian Steel claimed “to be neither a devotee or former devotee” of Sathya Sai Baba.

Nevertheless, Tulasi Srinivas actually confirmed that Brian Steel “was a devotee of Sathya Sai Baba from the early 1980s” to 2000 (pages 255 & 256). Why did Tulasi Srinivas attempt to convince (some would say “con”) her readers into believing that Brian Steel was “neither a devotee or former devotee” when she already documented his sixteen years of devotion to Sathya Sai Baba? It would appear that Tulasi Srinivas attempted to dupe readers into believing that Brian Steel was ‘neutral’ so that she could justify her heavy reliance on his ‘anti’ material (see 351:3; 353:18; 353:23; 354:29; 355:35; 355:42; 358:63; 361:51; 361:53; 371:17; 372:38; 372:39).

In Brian Steel’s book “The Powers of Sathya Sai Baba”, he wrote that he conducted worship and bhajans (devotional singing) with other Sai devotees in his house when he was a Sathya Sai devotee. Brian Steel even claimed that vibuthi (sacred ash) miraculously manifested from one of his pictures of Sathya Sai Baba that he worshipped and kept in his house.

Would a “non-former-devotee” conduct devotional singing in his house while worshipping pictures of Sathya Sai Baba, as Brian Steel did? Would a “non-former-devotee” write several books praising and eulogizing Sathya Sai Baba, as Brian Steel did? Brian Steel is even listed on Robert Priddy’s “Ex-office-bearers” webpage as being a Sathya Sai devotee from 1984 – 2000. Apparently, these obvious facts were casually dismissed by the academic and scholar Tulasi Srinivas (although she heavily cited Brian Steel’s ‘anti’ material in her book “Winged Faith”).

Tulasi Srinivas claimed she communicated with Brian Steel from 2006 – 2008 and actually had the audacity to say that Brian Steel’s alignment with former followers “might be involuntary”. Rubbish!

It is disconcerting that Tulasi Srinivas is attempting to peddle her biased research as “credible”, “neutral” and “intellectual” to unsuspecting academics, scholars, college students and general readers.

Moreno’s correspondence with Brian Steel (Emails 01Emails 02) reveals Brian Steel’s clear bias and antagonism against Sathya Sai Baba.

Tulasi Srinivas heavily cited Barry Pittard (a former follower) in “Winged Faith” (see 358:64; 372:30; 371:31; 371:36; 372:58) but purposely withheld all relevant information about him and his many smear and defamation campaigns against Sathya Sai Baba and Sathya Sai devotees.

Barry Pittard is a malicious propagator of Robert Priddy’s falsified and fraudulent “sexual molestation” libels against Gerald Joe Moreno. Barry Pittard also endorses and allies himself with Reinier van der Sandt, the ExBaba webmaster who has similarly libeled Gerald Joe Moreno as being sexually abused by Sathya Sai Baba. If Barry Pittard endorses and supports falsified and fraudulent “sexual molestation” libels against Gerald Joe Moreno, what other falsified and fraudulent “sexual molestation” libels is he peddling against Sathya Sai Baba? Barry Pittard also accused a high-ranking Sathya Sai devotee of running a pedophile ring from his first-class apartment over looking Central Park in New York (Ref) and purposely misrepresented the former US State Department advisory by claiming they had “named Sathya Sai Baba re Pedophile Allegations”, a bold-faced untruth (Ref). Barry Pittard has also lied about there being 100 affidavits against Sathya Sai Baba, been accused of impropriety, fraudulently claimed to be a Professor, incited Islamic terrorists to kill Jews and Sathya Sai devotees at Puttaparthi, purposely ignores and suppresses relevant facts about BBC interviewee Alaya Rahm and been exposed for his pseudo-moralism.

Had Tulasi Srinivas contacted Moreno, she could have easily obtained this information that calls into question the alleged credibility of Barry Pittard. It would also appear that Tulasi Srinivas read Moreno’s webpages about Barry Pittard (since she cited links to Moreno’s website) but decided to purposely suppress this relevant information about him.

Notes; “Secrecy, Ambiguity, Truth, and Power”; Reference 37; Page 371: Tulasi Srinivas cited Serguei Badaev (a former follower) in “Winged Faith” but purposely withheld all relevant information about him. Moreno’s articles about Serguei Badaev reveals Badaev’s clear bias, antagonism and poor research against Sathya Sai Baba.

Tulasi Srinivas cited Conny Larsson (a former follower) in “Winged Faith” but purposely withheld all relevant information about him and his many smear and defamation campaigns against Sathya Sai Baba and Sathya Sai devotees. Tulasi Srinvas said that Conny Larsson was a “spiritual teacher” (page 256), which is a gross over-simplification of known facts.

Bi-Sexual Conny Larsson is peddling himself as a self-proclaimed Prophet and psychic trance channeler for Maharishi Vyasa. Conny Larsson’s “trance medium” claims were even published in a national Swedish newspaper (‘Norrlandska Socialdemokraten’) under the title Medium drog full hus (English: “Medium Draws Full House”), which documented a couple of ‘trance channeling’ demonstrations by Conny Larsson.

Robert Priddy and Kevin R. D. Shepherd attempted to defend Conny Larsson and were subsequently silenced by two scathing responses by Moreno entitled “Kevin Shepherd & Psychic Medium Conny Larsson” and “Conny Larsson Admits To Psychic Fraud”.

Conny Larsson claims he is a Psychic Healer and Spirit-Medium who uses crystal pendulums to diagnose disorders, blockages and ills in other’s auras (Ref). Conny Larsson also sells himself as a Meditation Guru, Spirituality & Yoga Master, Bhajan Leader, Mantra Guru, Vedic Master, etc. Conny Larsson is the founder of vedicmasterclass.org and heartandsoulexpo.com, which solicits the services of numerous psychics, mediums, channelers and New Age healers (many who have gurus and alleged “angel” contacts).

Even more disturbing is the fact that Conny Larsson self-disclosed his psychiatric diagnosis (made by a psychiatrist) of him being “psychoinfantile”, which is also known as Histrionic Personality Disorder. Conny Larsson has also been very open about his bisexuality, which was published in Swedish newspapers by various journalists.

Apparently, if you hear voices in your head, channel Vyasa, perform trance healings, converse with dead people, channel the spirits of dead animals, hold negative views about Sathya Sai Baba, perform séances and have been officially diagnosed with a psychiatric personality disorder, give Tulasi Srinivas a call because you might be her next credible reference against Sathya Sai Baba.

If Tulasi Srinivas revealed this information about Conny Larsson to her colleagues and students, there is little doubt they would all laugh her out of Emerson College. It is safe to say that academics, scholars, college students and general readers would not likely accept Psychic Medium Conny Larsson as a credible and reliable reference in relation to Sathya Sai Baba and the Sathya Sai movement.

Of course, the question remains: Why did Tulasi Srinivas accept Conny Larsson as a credible and reliable reference in relation to Sathya Sai Baba and the Sathya Sai movement?

Notes; “Secrecy, Ambiguity, Truth, and Power”; Reference 40; Page 372: Tulasi Srinivas cited PhD Timothy Conway in “Winged Faith” but purposely withheld all relevant information about him.

Although Timothy Conway can often be seen attempting to present himself as a rational and logical voice against Sathya Sai Baba, he is a true believer and promoter of Gurus [3], Mystics [3], Enlightened Masters [3], psychics [1] [2] [4], levitation [5], bi-location [5], miracles [5], remote-viewing [4], elementals, meditation [2] [6], paranormal powers [5], aliens [4] [10], rebirth [1] [7], reincarnation [1] [7], karma [8], oracles [2], I-Ching [2], sensitives [1] [2], channelers [1] [2], astrology [2], astrologists [2], palm-reading [2], non-duality [9], etc. (the list goes on and on).

For example, if you are looking for an answer to a difficult problem, Timothy Conway PhD suggested the following solutions:

“Ask God (Spirit, the one God-Self) for guidance and for some kind of ‘omen’ or ‘sign,’ if needed, to proceed in a certain direction (i.e., making choice A, B, C or whatever). Be willing to wait several days or weeks (or, in some cases, months or even years for this guidance to manifest)…Use an oracle, such as the I Ching (Book of Changes). More simply, you can ask for Divine Guidance and then flip a coin–with heads meaning one choice, tails meaning the other choice. If you like, flip it 10 times and see if a clear pattern emerges. You might say, ‘Well, how the coin flips is simply due to chance.’ Perhaps. But one can also trust that there is a deeper Principle behind everything that happens, and you can ask this Divine Guiding Intelligence to show you an answer via the coin-tossing process. Alternatively, you can create a slightly more sophisticated oracle of your own by getting out 3 or 4 pieces of paper. Then write ‘yes’ on one, ‘no’ on another, ‘wait’ on a third piece of paper, and, if you like, ‘wrong question’ on the fourth piece of paper. Then turn them face down, scramble them up, and pick one of the 3 or 4 pieces of paper to get guidance this way…You can also consult a psychic ‘sensitive’ and/or an astrologer or a palmist (Indian jyotish astrology followed by Western astrology seem to be the most accurate astrology systems. And, curiously, palmistry and astrology seem to complement each other as different methods for getting to the same ‘karmic’ information on the soul’s mission, destiny, strengths and vulnerabilities).” (Reference)

Timothy Conway also believed and endorsed (Ref) the alleged experiences of Shirlи Klein-Carsh, a so-called “Indigo” (an alleged extraterrestrial alien who voluntarily incarnates on Earth). Shirlи Klein-Carsh claimed she was psychologically, spiritually and artistically guided by a cleverly disguised Alien from Sirius who worked as an electronics repairman in a second-hand shop. Timothy Conway said:

“This is a fascinating study of someone with sensitivities hardly dreamed of by most persons. Other books present the carefully presented and reasoned case for the existence of inter-dimensional aliens interacting with humans. This book goes straight into the mystery and wonder of the human-alien contact.” (Reference)

Timothy Conway also attempted to argue that if Sathya Sai Baba possesses genuine paranormal powers, he could easily “warp spacetime” by creating an “insular interdimensional environment” where he could engage in abuse without easy detection (just as aliens are alleged to do through alien abductions: Ref)!

If Tulasi Srinivas revealed this information about PhD Timothy Conway to her colleagues and students, there is little doubt they would all laugh her out of Emerson College. It is safe to say that academics, scholars, college students and general readers would not likely accept Timothy Conway as a credible and reliable reference in relation to Sathya Sai Baba and the Sathya Sai movement.

Of course, the question remains: Why did Tulasi Srinivas accept Timothy Conway as a credible and reliable reference in relation to Sathya Sai Baba and the Sathya Sai movement?

Notes; “Secrecy, Ambiguity, Truth, And Power”; Reference 28; Page 371: Tulasi Srinivas made reference to the BBC documentary ‘Secret Swami’ and the allegations of sexual abuse by Alaya Rahm. However, all other relevant information and details about Alaya Rahm’s allegations were purposely withheld.

In “Response To Form Interrogatories” in Alaya Rahm’s self-dismissed lawsuit against the Sathya Sai Baba Society (Form Interrogatory No. 6.3, Set One) Alaya Rahm fully admitted he had been a daily user of illegal street drugs and alcohol from 1995 to 2005. Consequently, during Alaya Rahm’s “Divine Downfall” and India Today Anti-Sai interviews and during the filming of the BBC Documentary “Secret Swami” and the “Seduced By Sai Baba” Danish Documentary, Alaya Rahm was under the influence of illegal street drugs and alcohol while relating his alleged sexual encounters with Sathya Sai Baba. This crucial information wholly undermines Alaya Rahm’s credibility and irreparably compromises the integrity of his claims. Needless to say, Alaya Rahm’s alcoholism and drug addiction have been purposely suppressed from the general public by former followers, the Rahm Family, Tanya Datta, the BBC and Tulasi Srinivas (Ref).

In pretrial discovery, Alaya Rahm claimed he suffered no psychological trauma that would have required medical or psychiatric care. Alaya identified no psychologist who had ever examined him and his parents never had Alaya undergo psychological counseling despite their repeated and boisterous claims that Alaya was “seriously sexually molested”. The only help that Alaya obtained was a three day seminar from the Landmark Forum on “Empowerment, self help and personal growth” that cost $795 in June 2005 (five years after his alleged abuse and five months after he filed his lawsuits)! It would appear that Al & Marisa Rahm (the parents) were incredibly negligent in getting psychological help for their “seriously sexually molested” son.

Supporting Alaya Rahm’s involvement with illegal street drugs and drug addicts is a secondary court case in November 2007 where Alaya Rahm testified on behalf of his friend Valdez T Woods, who was arrested and convicted for possession of crack cocaine and marijuana with the intent to deliver (PDF Reference). As a matter of fact, Valdez T Woods was arrested within a mile of Alaya Rahm’s then current residence (as revealed in official court records). Alaya Rahm was identified as a “friend and associate” of drug dealer and drug addict Valdez T Woods.

In Alexandra Nagel’s paper entitled “Sai Baba as Shiva-Shakti: a Created Myth? Or?”, Alaya Rahm personally told Alexandra Nagel that Sathya Sai Baba had literally and miraculously transmogrified his penis into a vagina on two separate occasions by blowing on his fingers! These are the ludicrous (and quite frankly unbelievable) stories that Tulasi Srinivas apparently needed to withhold from her readers so that her smears against Sathya Sai Baba would be more believable.

Former followers have resorted to secrecy, concealment and strategies of silence regarding these facts and adamantly refuse to publicly discuss them (which they have similarly done in association with Conny Larsson’s ‘trance medium’ claims). Apparently, Tulasi Srinivas is following in the footsteps of former followers.

Tulasi Srinivas’ Serious And Potentially Libelous Assertions

In the chapter “Secrecy, Ambiguity, Truth and Power” (page 256), Tulasi Srinivas published serious and potentially libelous information against Stephen Carthew and Terry Gallagher by claiming Sathya Sai Baba initiated “sexual healing” and “genital oilings” on them. This is totally false information and it cannot be traced to any verifiable references. Tulasi Srinivas cited Alexandra Nagel’s paper “A Guru Accused” to support her assertions although Carthew and Gallagher’s names are not mentioned in Alexandra Nagel’s article. On June 26th 2010, Moreno emailed both Columbia University Press and Tulasi Srinivas and requested the correct reference to support the assertions made about Stephen Carthew and Terry Gallagher. To date, Moreno has not received a reply from either Columbia University Press or Tulasi Srinivas.

‘Winged Faith’ – Too Many Errors To List

The following seven examples are provided to give readers a better idea into Moreno’s contention that the list of errors, inaccuracies, misrepresentations and subjective inferences in Tulasi Srinivas’ book “Winged Faith” are simply too numerous to list:

  1. In the introduction to “Winged Faith” (page 9) Tulasi Srinivas claimed that Sathya Sai Baba’s materialization of vibuthi established himself in association with Shirdi Sai Baba, whom Tulasi Srinivas alleged “also materialized vibuthi for his followers”. Needless to say, Shirdi Sai Baba never “materialized” vibuthi for his followers. Rather, Shirdi Sai Baba took ash from his dhuni (sacrificial fire) and gave it to his followers to effect various cures.
  2. In the chapter “Becoming God” (page 59, figure 1.1), Tulasi Srinivas published an alleged “postcard image” of Sathya Sai Baba as a young man and claimed the image belonged to the “Collection of Tulasi Srinivas”. The image in question is not a postcard, does not belong to Tulasi Srinivas and was actually taken from the saibabaofindia.com domain without their permission or knowledge (view picture reference here). As a matter of fact, the image in question clearly shows the SBOI’s watermark. Before Tulasi Srinivas published her book “Winged Faith”, an internet abstract with similar content was circulated on the internet that similarly published an image taken from Moreno’s vishvarupa.com domain without his permission or knowledge.
  3. In the chapter “Becoming God” (page 75, figure 1.3), Tulasi Srinivas published an alleged “postcard image” of Sathya Sai Baba with other avatars (i.e. Rama, Krishna, Buddha and Shirdi Sai Baba) and claimed the image belonged to the “Collection of Tulasi Srinivas”. The image in question is not a postcard, does not belong to Tulasi Srinivas and was actually taken from the Sri Sathya Sai Books And Publications Trust (SSSBPT) domain without their permission or knowledge (view picture reference here). As a matter of fact, the image in question clearly shows the SSSBPT’s watermark.
  4. In an amusing fit of illogic, Tulasi Srinivas attempted to associate Sathya Sai Baba with the New Age movement (page 20) because a New Age shop in Burlington, Vermont sold Satya Sai Baba Nag Champa (an incense that is not associated in any manner with the Sathya Sai Organization). In fact, Satya Sai Baba Nag Champa is manufactured by Shrinivas Sugandhalaya in Bangalore (see picture reference here). It is a common practice in India for businesses and manufacturers to use the names of popular Saints on their products or in their business logos.
  5. In the chapter “Secrecy, Ambiguity, Truth and Power” (pages 253 – 257), Tulasi Srinivas made several exaggerated and unfounded claims about JuST (Just Seekers of Truth). Tulasi Srinivas estimated the total strength of JuST to be “roughly one hundred members” even though Barry Pittard specifically told her the number was “thirty-eight”. In truth, JuST is comprised of only thirty-two individuals (Ref). In December 2004, the “Sai Petition Committee” wrote a response to Moreno claiming that there were only six active members speaking on behalf of the collective JuST group (Ref). Tulasi Srinivas also stated “only two Indian names appear as part of the contemporary structure of JuST” (i.e. Hari Sampath and Sanjay Dadlani). Needless to say, neither Hari Sampath nor Sanjay Dadlani belongs to JuST. The only Indian name listed in JuST’s signatories list is Soma Jeyendren (an Indian residing in Australia). Even though this information is readily available on the internet, the academic and scholar Tulasi Srinivas attempted to peddle her subjective speculations as objective truth. Amusingly, when Tulasi Srinivas first attempted to correspond with JuST members in 2004, they “summarily dismissed” her. When Tulasi Srinivas contacted JuST in 2006 they asked for her “credentials”. Tulasi Srinivas stated that the same type of “secrecy and conspiracy mentality” that members of JuST saw in the Sathya Sai Organization, was present in them as well.
  6. In the chapter “Secrecy, Ambiguity, Truth and Power” (page 261), Tulasi Srinivas attempted to make the argument that the issues of “secrecy” and “concealment” were central to the deposition taken from Lewis Kreydick in Alaya Rahm’s self-dismissed lawsuit. To support her argument, Tulasi Srinivas enigmatically cited a couple of sentences from Lewis Kreydick’s deposition that were published on Moreno’s website. Tulasi Srinivas cited Lewis Kreydick’s story where Alaya Rahm sat on the Guru’s lap. Tulasi Srinivas pointed out that a lawyer had asked Lewis Kreydick if Alaya Rahm had asked him to keep the story a “secret”, to which Lewis Kreydick replied, “No, no.” (Ref). After enigmatically making reference to this irrelevant material, Tulasi Srinivas took off on a rant about how Sathya Sai devotees “had specific strategies of silence to combat unwanted behaviors and allegations that dealt with the sexual healing issue”. Needless to say, Lewis Kreydick did not in any way refuse to answer any questions during his deposition.

    Had Tulasi Srinivas actually researched the material published on Moreno’s website or had she actually contacted Moreno, she would have discovered that Alaya Rahm publicly and openly discussed his story of sitting on Sathya Sai Baba’s lap at the USA Sai Regional Conference in August 1997, which was attended by a couple hundred Sathya Sai devotees from across the USA and which was videotaped and recorded on audio cassettes (Ref). Alaya Rahm self-disclosed this story before he made his allegations against Sathya Sai Baba and even claimed the experience left him in “ecstasy”. Therefore, Tulasi Srinivas’ enigmatic reference to this story in relation to “secrecy” and “concealment” accusations is entirely without merit.

  7. In the chapter “Out Of God’s Hands” (pages 307 – 312), Tulasi Srinivas exaggerated Sathya Sai devotee’s shopping habits and seemed to defend the notion that the sellers outside Sathya Sai Baba’s ashram do not cheat. In truth, many of the vendors outside Sathya Sai Baba’s ashram do cheat. Why shouldn’t the ashram warn Sathya Sai devotees about the cheating that goes on outside the ashram? Moreno lived at Puttaparthi for almost three consecutive years and he knows from first-hand knowledge that Tulasi Srinivas’ claims about Sathya Sai devotee’s shopping habits are completely biased, inaccurate and misrepresented. Tulasi Srinivas made a huge fuss about Sathya Sai devotee’s wanting their purchases to be free from defects. Who wants to purchase defective merchandise? It is a common sight to see vendors outside the ashram trying to sell worn-out, sun-scorched and old merchandise. Apparently, if Sathya Sai devotees want clean, new and undamaged merchandise, this is a sign of religious extremism and fanaticism, according to Tulasi Srinivas.

Since Tulasi Srinivas was so negligent and careless with her facts and research, how can anyone believe anything she has to say about Sathya Sai Baba, the Sathya Sai movement and the Sathya Sai controversy?

‘Winged Faith’ By Tulasi Srinivas – In Conclusion

In conclusion, Tulasi Srinivas’ book “Winged Faith: Rethinking Globalization and Religious Pluralism through the Sathya Sai Movement” is almost entirely unoriginal. The book essentially repeats and recycles many of the same thoughts and observations made by Lawrence A. Bapp, Deborah A. Swallow, Morton Klass, Smriti Srinivas, Antonio Rigolopoulos and Alexandra Kent. However, Tulasi Srinivas took her so-called ‘research’ a step lower and decided to reference internet propaganda against Sathya Sai Baba.

Tulasi Srinivas correctly stated “despite his critics’ claims of malfaesance, Sai Baba has never been accused (much less convicted) of wrongdoing in an Indian court of law” and “nothing has been proven against Sathya Sai Baba”. It is true that Sathya Sai Baba and the Sathya Sai Organization have never (ever) been charged with any crime. It is also true that no alleged victim (and no alleged victim’s mother or father) has ever filed (first-hand) a basic police complaint, public grievance or court case against Sathya Sai Baba or the Sathya Sai Organization in India. Therefore, it is very peculiar and highly unusual that an academic and scholar like Tulasi Srinivas would publish and reference internet propaganda from former followers against Sathya Sai Baba. This type of questionable behavior would seem to imply that Tulasi Srinivas is biased and that she used her book to push an agenda against Sathya Sai Baba and the Sathya Sai Organization under the pretexts of “globalization” and “transnational theory” discussions.

Although Tulasi Srinivas believed that Gerald Moreno was a Sathya Sai devotee, she never once attempted to contact or question him. Tulasi Srinivas’ core arguments are based on what she believes to be “secrecy”, “ambiguity”, “strategies of silence”, “polyvalent discourse” and “concealed knowledge” within the Sathya Sai movement. Tulasi Srinivas formulated these arguments by questioning a handful of Sathya Sai devotees about the allegations and then used their few responses (and mostly non-responses) to somehow represent the character and views of the entire Sathya Sai community (composed of millions of people)! Moreno’s open, detailed and direct discussions about the allegations against Sathya Sai Baba posed a direct threat to Tulasi Srinivas’ core arguments (which is probably why she never contacted Moreno in the first place). Therefore, it would appear that the only person guilty of “secrecy”, “ambiguity”, “strategies of silence”, “polyvalent discourse” and “concealed knowledge” is Tulasi Srinivas.

It is indeed ironic that Tulasi Srinivas named her book “Winged Faith” as that is exactly the type of belief she holds in ‘former followers’ and is exactly the type of belief she expects from those reading her discourses about the Sathya Sai movement. Although there is little doubt that the international Sathya Sai movement can be used as an example in “globalization” and “transnational theory” discussions, the numerous inaccuracies in “Winged Faith” solidifies the perception that Tulasi Srinivas’ convoluted and discursive arguments promote mediocrity over merit.

‘Lunatic Fringe’ And Kooks Among EX-Devotees Of Sathya Sai Baba

‘LUNATIC FRINGE’ – INTRODUCTION:
Robert Priddy (a caustic critic and defamer of Sathya Sai Baba and others) submitted an Anti-Baba article on digg.com that said (in part):

Sathya Sai Baba’s ‘channelers’ and mediums – & Shivaratri fraud: Entertaining as a fair sample of the quite populous ‘lunatic fringe’ that is always prominent in the ashrams and no less throughout the Sai movement.”

Needless to say, Robert Priddy miserably failed to discuss the “entertaining” “lunatic fringe” that has always been prominent among Ex-Devotees. Robert Priddy himself was a “lunatic fringe” believer in Sathya Sai Baba for 17 – 26 years (even hailing the guru as God incarnate!) and professed belief in elementals, elves, fairies and leprechauns (discussed later in this article).

Robert Priddy cherry-picks his one-way and self-serving criticisms (bewailing the so-called faults, gullibility and mental deficiencies of Sai Devotees), all the while suppressing and ignoring these same faults, gullibility and mental deficiencies prevalent among Ex-Devotees of Sathya Sai Baba.

CONNY LARSSON & THE ‘LUNATIC FRINGE’:
Bi-Sexual Conny Larsson (a caustic critic and defamer of Sathya Sai Baba and others) is peddling himself as a self-proclaimed Prophet and trance channeler for Maharishi Vyasa. Conny Larsson’s “trance medium” claims were even published in a national Swedish newspaper (Norrland Social Democrat aka Norrlandska Socialdemokraten) under the title Medium drog full hus – Medium draws full house (which documented a couple of trance channeling demonstrations by Conny Larsson).

Robert Priddy and Kevin R. D. Shepherd attempted to defend Conny Larsson and ending up eating their words when Gerald Joe Moreno published his scathing responses entitled “Kevin Shepherd & Psychic Medium Conny Larsson” and “Conny Larsson Admits To Psychic Fraud”.

Conny Larsson claims he is a Psychic Healer and Spirit-Medium who uses crystal pendulums to diagnose disorders, blockages and ills in other’s auras (Ref). Conny Larsson also sells himself as a Meditation Guru, Spirituality & Yoga Master, Bhajan Leader, Mantra Guru, Vedic Master, etc.. Conny Larsson is the founder of vedicmasterclass.org and heartandsoulexpo.com, which solicits the services of numerous psychics, mediums, channelers and New Age healers (many who have gurus and alleged “angel” contacts).

Even more disturbing is the fact that Conny Larsson self-disclosed his psychiatric diagnosis (made by a psychiatrist) of him being “psychoinfantile”, which is also known as Histrionic Personality Disorder.

Apparently, if you hear voices in your head, channel Vyasa, perform trance healings, converse with dead people, channel the spirits of dead animals, hold negative views about Sathya Sai Baba, perform séances and have been officially diagnosed with a psychiatric personality disorder, give Ex-Devotees a call because you might be their next credible reference against Sathya Sai Baba.

M. ALAN KAZLEV & THE ‘LUNATIC FRINGE’:
Alan Kazlev (a caustic critic of Sathya Sai Baba and others) is a true-believer and promoter of: Integral Transformation, Integral Metaphysics, Reincarnation, Spirit Possession, Trolls, UFOs, Aliens, Alternate Realities, Cosmic Redemption, Planetary Buddhas, Avataric Gurus, Psychic Powers, Devas, Earth Spirits, Elementals, the Occult, Kundalini, Astrology, Karma, Auras, Astral Bodies, Astral Planes, Astral Beings, Geomancy, Theta Magic, Natal Charts, Samskaras, various New Age philosophies, etc.

Alan Kazlev claimed that Ramana Maharshi is his “sadguru” and that Sri Aurobindo and Mother Mirra are his “gurus”. Furthermore, Alan Kazlev ranted about his past lives on his website, claiming past life associations with Ancient Rome, Atlantis and Ancient Greece. Alan Kazlev claimed he lived past lives as a Polish Kabbalist, a German Soldier and a 19th Century English gentleman-scholar, philosopher theologian and naturalist raised as a British Israelite. Alan Kazlev stated he reincarnates two to three times a century and was “exiled” to Earth (apparently from another planet) to help in the spiritual transformation of the entire Earth (Reference).

It has since come to light that Alan Kazlev is a grungy guy who loves to drool over images of a “pornographic kind” (using Robert Priddy’s moral standards) and wrote two cyberpunk articles replete with filthy speech and sexually explicit material. See:

Ex-Devotees have yet to say one word about Alan Kazlev’s penchant to tell raunchy and pornographic stories about erect penises, wanton sex and obscene references to women as being “cunts”.

M. Alan Kazlev is also a pseudo-psychiatrist who loves to make bogus psychological profiles of people who dissent with him (although he has no known credentials in the medical or psychiatric fields). As a matter of fact, Alan Kazlev openly admitted he has no credentials in the medical or psychiatric fields yet judges and defames others while hypocritically preaching about “love” and “letting go of hatred”.

TONY O’CLERY & THE ‘LUNATIC FRINGE’:
Tony O’Clery (a caustic critic and defamer of Sathya Sai Baba and others) believes in Atlantis and Lemuria, Edgar Cayce (a psychic trance medium called “The Sleeping Prophet”), shape-shifting (literally changing one’s physical body to that of an animal, bird, reptile or other creature), UFO’s, aliens, alien abductions, reincarnation, black magic using semen, astral planes with astral beings, thought forms, psychic attacks, kundalini, psychics, mediums, karma, the mayan calendar apocalypse, talking to the dead, demon possession, channeling, prophecies, bilocation and believes that Hiranyakasipu (a mythological demon who is said to have existed millions of years ago) was able to manipulate matter completely and could create ships that could go to the stars!

Anthony Tony O’Clery also claims he is a trance-medium who hears, sees and speaks to the dead, enters demon-trances and thinks everyone in his family is psychic (Refs: 010203).

Tony O’Clery also wrote a disgusting, falsified and fraudulent news story that said:

Tony O’Clery (under the pseudonym “Angelic”): “no it was cnn, the four year old just crossed the street from his parents house. He was molested and chopped up and buried in the backyard. He son held the boy, her husband raped him whilst she masturbated according to cnn.

I think afterwards they went to bhajans at the sai centre. The police said there was a big picture of sb (Sai Baba) on the wall, and they offered the rape to him, understanding he would relish the idea.” (Reference)

To Date: Not even one Ex-Devotee has said a single word about O’Clery’s disgusting and fraudulent news story claiming that a man raped his 4-year-old son while the 4-year-old was held by another son with the mother watching on masturbating! As if this isn’t disgusting enough, Tony O’Clery then claimed that the 4-year-old boy was chopped up and buried in the back yard and that the mother and father offered the rape to Sathya Sai Baba!

These are the type of mentally unsound whackos belonging to the Anti-Sai Movement.

LOOHAN & THE ‘LUNATIC FRINGE’:
Loohan (an Anti-Sai Activist and self-professed psychic) not only believes that he can psychically “program” areas of land with his mind to create demon and ET “prisons”, he also believes in the “Illuminati” (a secret society comprised of pedophilic, blood-sucking, shape-shifting reptilians from the Draco constellation). The following paragraph contains “loohan’s” psychic impressions about pictures he saw of Sathya Sai Baba on the internet:

“June 2, 2006: Sai Baba. I see they have posted more ‘new’ pics of His Holiness, also all at least 6 weeks old. About 40% down the page is a pic of the Anointing One. To his left is a dark-skinned man, to his right a white man, squatting. The dark guy is his witch #5, the white guy #4. Right below that are 4 little girls, dancing. The 2 front ones are sexually abused. I pulled out the sex demons they had from vaginal injection. I am confident that medical inspection would show they are not virgins. The bottom pic has the same 2 witches, too. His female ones are not on this page.

I found a clone they are working on to replace Baba. Baba’s ’spirit’ (insectile) is history, so it won’t be the same person except in appearance. I stuffed the clone full of parasites, which made his location very easy to dowse. He is in a house on the SE corner of Mesnes Rd. and Wordsworth Ave., Marylebone, Greater Manchester, WN1, UK. I don’t think the clone is ready for action yet for another couple months, so i can beat up on him at my leisure.”

Believe it or not, this is not the first time that Anti-Sai Activists claimed that Sathya Sai Baba has been (or will be) “replaced” by a clone. The “clone conspiracy” theory attempts to explain away Sai Baba’s youthful appearance at 85 years of age. Loohan believes he was able to psychically remove “sex demons” residing in the vaginas of little girls simply by looking at their picture!

JULIAN O’DONNELL & THE ‘LUNATIC FRINGE’:
Julian O’Donnell (an Ex-Devotee) claimed he lived past lives with Sathya Sai Baba and that he was able to “fix” the guru with his vast psychic powers. O’Donnell also wished that someone would assassinate Sai Baba and his emails strongly suggest he suffers from chronic psychiatric problems.

KYRA KITTS & THE ‘LUNATIC FRINGE’:
Kyra Kitts (an Ex-Devotee of Sathya Sai Baba residing in San Luis Obispo) had her own website (“kyrakitts.net”, which is no longer online) for close to five years in which she solicited herself as a psychic, clairvoyant and spiritual healer who could perform in-person and long-distance healings. She claimed to have been “overtly psychic since approximately age eleven”. Kyra Kitts claimed that H. H. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche began appearing to her in inner visions and spoke to her in Tibetan. She also claimed that Sathya Sai Baba appeared to her in a semi-awake/semi-asleep vision that radically changed her life. When she visited Sai Baba in India, she was tormented with “bizarre sexual thoughts”, even in Baba’s presence. Kyra Kitts claimed that while walking by the meditation bench behind the mandir, she psychically perceived Sathya Sai Baba “in his room masturbating, looking out his window, and laughing at the crowd”. Kyra Kitts said that Sathya Sai Baba looked like a “Fijian gorilla” and referred to the guru as “Sai Bob, sex cowboy”. Kyra Kitts has/had numerous, chronic, physical ailments that affected her mentally (admittedly) for many years. Kyra Kitts is a believer in gurus, psychic powers, ESP, siddhis, telepathy, clairvoyance, clairaudience, channeling, precognition, etc. Kyra Kitts is married to Christopher ‘Chris’ Kitts and complained on the Narcissistic Personality Disorder Yahoo Group about Chris’ domineering mother! Kyra Kitts served as the main contact for the “Bodhi Path” Buddha Center in San Luis Obispo. Kyra Kitts also used the internet pseudonym “mireille108” and claimed that Ammachi is her “core Guru”.

BARRY PITTARD & THE ‘LUNATIC FRINGE’:
Barry Pittard (a caustic critic and defamer of Sathya Sai Baba and others) said he believes (even after his defection from the Sai Movement) that Sathya Sai Baba possesses genuine paranormal powers! As a matter of fact, Barry Pittard said:

“I can tell you that I and others have witnessed hundreds – and ones of the most profoundly beautiful sort – both mediated in his own person and in places far from him but in their style connected with him. My own view is this: that they are happening on a tremendously wide scale; that they cannot all be explained away as faked; that they are phenomena not at present rationally understood…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…I have had thousands of experiences that transcend scientific or intellectual explanation…I have many times experienced supranormal phenomena related to him, which there is no explaining away…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).” (Reference)

Barry Pittard was also a promoter of various Nadi Sastras, which are prophetic readings obtained from palm leafs, finger-prints or astrological data in India. Barry Pittard even claimed he sent out 2,000 emails to various people, attempting to obtain information to support and promote his obvious obsession with “Nadi Sastras”.

Barry Pittard formerly attempted to pass himself off as a spiritual healer for many years but now lives on a disability pension in Australia (apparently, unable to heal himself). The reason for Pittard’s disability pension is a fanatically guarded secret. Gerald Moreno received a highly credible email that claimed Barry Pittard saw a psychologist on the Sunshine Coast and Pittard’s disability pension may actually be due to psychiatric reasons.

Currently, Barry Pittard claims that various Anti-Baba lyrics and songs are “manifesting” through him!

SANJAY DADLANI & THE ‘LUNATIC FRINGE’:
Sanjay Dadlani (a fully exposed pervert, vocal Anti-Sai Activist and Ex-Devotee) is a Hare Krishna congregational member who is a believer in the Ramayana, Bhagavad Gita and the Srimad Bhagavatam (which Priddy said one must be “backward intellectually” to believe in: Ref).

Sanjay Dadlani has openly declared his belief that Lord Krishna held aloft an entire mountain on his pinky finger for seven days and seven nights without rest, going to the bathroom or sleep. Sanjay Dadlani also believes that Lord Krishna literally manifested 16,000 separate human bodies and married 16,000 women and copulated with each one of them, generating numerous offspring. Sanjay also gets down on his hands and knees and worships stone deities as God Incarnate (Refs: 010203).

Sanjay Dadlani argues for the integrity of the Srimad Bhagavatam as a reliable historical record for the life and lilas of Bhagavan Sri Krishna. Funny enough, the Srimad Bhagavatam claims we live in a geocentric universe and that Sun is closer to the Earth than the Moon! See: What Are The Implications When A Guru Or Scripture Err?

Ex-Devotees see nothing wrong with Sanjay Dadlani’s homosexual-fantasizing slurs, perverted Jesus-sex fetish and deviant boot-sex fetish. Sanjay Dadlani secretly stalked innocent women at Middlesex University (calling them “bitches” and “sluts”, saying “they want it”, calling Mothers “MILFs”, photographing females and teenagers up their dresses and under tables and published these photos on his streetbitches blog).

Sanjay Dadlani posted on the QuickTopic Forum (using multiple fake names, including female names) and made disgusting posts under the name “Marquis de Sade” about a large penis for anal sex, a feces-covered anus, bestiality, people vomiting into each other’s mouths and a Priest ejaculating on the face of a little girl as related by her brother. Sanjay even posted under the name “kick his head in” and said that someone should murder Sathya Sai Baba (of course, this is the same guy who rejoiced when a Sai Baba temple was bombed).

And to top it all off, Sanjay Dadlani claimed he met sadhus in India that were 300 years old and that he engaged in tantric sex under the direction of Aghori Vimalananda when he was 7 years old! Sanjay Dadlani also believes that men can suck up semen to their brains and can live thousands of years thereby!

One word here: “Cuckoo!”

PAUL RICHARD DE FURIA & THE ‘LUNATIC FRINGE’:
On the ExBaba website, a person calling himself “Sol Mystic” (aka Paul Richard De Furia – who lives in Manassas USA) owns TheSocietyOfLight.com website. This website advocates for the belief in Ascended Magi & Ascended Elders and even claimed that the Ascended Solist Masters will rise from the dead after the year 2005 (as of 2010, no one has raised from the dead yet).

The Society Of Light website also promotes beliefs in UFO’s, aliens, psychic prophecy, predictions, chakras, auras, prophets, harmonizers, guardians, seers, unifiers, telekinesis, reincarnation, rebirth, astral planes, astral beings, psychic attacks, channeling, trans-mediumship, discarnates, avatars, crop circles, demons, telepathy, levitation, teleportation, ascended masters (the list goes on and on). Sol Mystic had the following to say about Sathya Sai Baba:

“My own insight as a SOL Mystic, which was confirmed to me in part by the Christian Mystic, Ray Stanford, as well as by the Hindu Mystic, Ishtan Natarajan, is that Sai Baba is a subangel (demon) prophet who has powerful Gifts of the Spirit (like Charisma, Healing and Manifestation, i.e., the ability to create food and jewelry), given to him by millions of spiritually indifferent discarnates in the Lower Realms of Spirit. They combine their soul energy into a group consciousness for the sake of collective power so that they can manifest these Gifts of telekinesis but they are not spiritually principled. They project a clever, well-orchestrated illusion to millions of incarnate people around the world that Sai Baba is a God Realized Avatar. In actuality, he is just a pedophile subangel prophet.”

Apparently, someone has been watching too much Harry Potter.

DAN WINTER & THE ‘LUNATIC FRINGE’:
Dan Winter (an Anti-Sai Activist) wrote an utterly psychotic article about Sathya Sai Baba, “sex juice” and “borgs” (a fictional race of cyborgs in the Star Trek universe, which Dan Winters thinks actually exist because he believes in the “Illuminati” – a secret society comprised of pedophilic, blood-sucking, shape-shifting reptilians from the Draco constellation). Dan Winter said (in part):

home.hetnet.nl/~ex-baba/engels/letters/addiction.html

“So no one in the conversation was apologetic about many reports that Sai Baba when seen clairvoyantly looked just like a giant worm out of DUNE. (The one report that he was a parasitic worm of the An lineage originally assigned to UrANus was unconfirmed.) I tried to explain how large scale harvesting of human glandular juices, uv blue fire aura / ecstatic/sex juice , was the raw material Sai Baba needed for Vibuti production. Hugh and Carol emphasized how millions of Indian children had schools because of Sai Baba; I pointed out that each day they all were required to pour out their worship uv juice to the reigning astral parasite/ guru Sai himself.

Of course their is a possible symbiosis between a reigning borg queen and her hive. And no one here is suggesting we should regard Sai Baba as simply evil in the sense of failing to embed. The question is more what should we learn and strengthen about self empowerment from the millions of person who sought this urge to the flow of guru juice, even if it was vampiric in may ways.

For example, I would not agree with the statement above that Sai had no mystical powers. In fact if you can be the cookie cutter at the nozzle of so many millions of humans sex/uv/worship juice, you DO get to be very powerful. What is so critical that we not be borgs in the river of that blue fire, but instead angels aborning, is that we understand the PRINCIPLE of how that worm becomes self-aware and self-steering. (been trying to get a-’head’ for millenia…)”

Apparently, someone has been sipping cuckoo juice while watching too much Star Trek & Dune.

Dan Winters is also a convicted felon who was successfully sued for copyright infringement and plagiarism. Daniel Winters also has a USA warrant out for his arrest (Refs: 0102). This is the type of nut and criminal that Ex-Devotees and the Ex-Baba domain solicit as a credible voice against Sathya Sai Baba.

TIMOTHY CONWAY & THE ‘LUNATIC FRINGE’:
Although Timothy Conway can often be seen attempting to present himself as a rational and logical voice against Sathya Sai Baba, he is a true believer and promoter of Gurus [3], Mystics [3], Enlightened Masters [3], psychics [1] [2] [4], levitation [5], bi-location [5], miracles [5], remote-viewing [4], elementals, meditation [2] [6], paranormal powers [5], aliens [4] [10], rebirth [1] [7], reincarnation [1] [7], karma [8], oracles [2], I-Ching [2], sensitives [1] [2], channelers [1] [2], astrology [2], astrologists [2], palm-reading [2], non-duality [9], etc. (the list goes on and on).

For example, if you are looking for an answer to a difficult problem, Timothy Conway PhD suggested the following solutions:

“Ask God (Spirit, the one God-Self) for guidance and for some kind of ‘omen’ or ‘sign,’ if needed, to proceed in a certain direction (i.e., making choice A, B, C or whatever). Be willing to wait several days or weeks (or, in some cases, months or even years for this guidance to manifest)…Use an oracle, such as the I Ching (Book of Changes). More simply, you can ask for Divine Guidance and then flip a coin–with heads meaning one choice, tails meaning the other choice. If you like, flip it 10 times and see if a clear pattern emerges. You might say, ‘Well, how the coin flips is simply due to chance.’ Perhaps. But one can also trust that there is a deeper Principle behind everything that happens, and you can ask this Divine Guiding Intelligence to show you an answer via the coin-tossing process. Alternatively, you can create a slightly more sophisticated oracle of your own by getting out 3 or 4 pieces of paper. Then write ‘yes’ on one, ‘no’ on another, ‘wait’ on a third piece of paper, and, if you like, ‘wrong question’ on the fourth piece of paper. Then turn them face down, scramble them up, and pick one of the 3 or 4 pieces of paper to get guidance this way…You can also consult a psychic ‘sensitive’ and/or an astrologer or a palmist (Indian jyotish astrology followed by Western astrology seem to be the most accurate astrology systems. And, curiously, palmistry and astrology seem to complement each other as different methods for getting to the same ‘karmic’ information on the soul’s mission, destiny, strengths and vulnerabilities).” (Reference)

Timothy Conway also believed and endorsed (Ref) the alleged experiences of Shirlи Klein-Carsh, a so-called “Indigo” (an alleged extraterrestrial alien who voluntarily incarnates on Earth). Shirlи Klein-Carsh claimed she was psychologically, spiritually and artistically guided by a cleverly disguised Alien from Sirius who worked as an electronics repairman in a second-hand shop. Timothy Conway said:

“This is a fascinating study of someone with sensitivities hardly dreamed of by most persons. Other books present the carefully presented and reasoned case for the existence of inter-dimensional aliens interacting with humans. This book goes straight into the mystery and wonder of the human-alien contact.” – Timothy Conway, PhD., author of ‘Women of Power and Grace’

Timothy Conway also attempted to argue that if Sai Baba possesses genuine paranormal powers, he could easily “warp spacetime” by creating an “insular interdimensional environment” where he could engage in abuse without easy detection (just as aliens are alleged to do through alien abductions)!

BARBARA DENT & THE ‘LUNATIC FRINGE’:
Barbara Dent (a very vocal Anti-Sai Activist given voice on critic’s Anti-Sai Yahoo Group and against whom no ex-devotee has ever dissented) believes that she channels the spirit of Mother Mary, is psychic, works on astral planes, sees and hears dead people, possesses telepathy, can astral travel, has lived many lives with Mother Mary, recalls her and other’s past lives in Germany, claims that the Nazi’s were aliens, recalls Sathya Sai Baba’s past lives, can make men impotent with her psychic powers, was astrally raped, speaks to Princess Diana’s spirit and blindly accuses Sathya Sai Baba, Sai Devotees and Sai Proponents of being “whores”, “pedophiles”, “queers”, “fags”, “rapers”, “molesters”, “murderers”, etc.

ROBERT PRIDDY & THE ‘LUNATIC FRINGE’:
Funny enough, Robert Priddy himself once held belief in elves, fairies, leprechauns, gnomes, trolls, water spirits, animal and plant spirits or ‘devas’ , angels, invisible helpers, shaman ’spirits’, ‘allies’, UFOs, extra-terrestrials, possessive demons, Satan, Pan-figures and other demi-gods (and even wrote an article about it: Ref). Priddy attempted to do damage control when confronted about his “lunatic fringe” beliefs and gave a tongue-in-cheek denial (Reference).

Although Robert Priddy attempts to con the general public into thinking he is entirely given to scientific reasoning, he is actually a true believer and a fierce defender, promoter, endorser, solicitor and friend of various self-professed psychics, trance mediums, reiki healers, guru wannabees, superstitionists, eccentric spiritualists, astrologers (including his own son, Kai Nicolai Priddy, who is heavily into astrology and is the webmaster for AbacusAstrology.co.uk) and other “lunatic fringe” Baba bashers.

Robert Priddy promotes, endorses and/or professes friendship with:

  1. Trance Channeler & Self-Proclaimed Prophet Conny Larsson
  2. Guru Promoter, UFO Conspiracist & True Believer PhD Timothy Conway
  3. New Age Advocate & Reincarnator Alan Kazlev
  4. Self-Proclaimed Spiritual Master ‘Ramana Baba’
  5. Ramtha Devotee Ullrich Zimmermann
  6. Fetishist & Hare Krsna Congregational Member Sanjay Dadlani
  7. Reiki Master And Spiritual Healer Yaman Konuralp

As a matter of fact, when Robert Priddy attempts to defend himself against Joe Moreno (a Pro-Sai Activist) he directs his readers to either:

  1. Psychic Trance Medium Conny Larsson’s website (located at saibabaexpose.com)
  2. Reincarnator, New Age Advocate and Grungy Integral Philosopher Alan Kazlev’s website (located at kheper.net)

How’s that for “scientific” or “rational”? Robert Priddy is obviously a very gullible and naive “true believer” who is willing to give credence to non-scientific beliefs by claiming that trance mediums, self-proclaimed prophets, aura readers, seance conductors, New Age advocates, guru adherents, self-proclaimed reincarnators and the like are intelligent, honest, credible and reliable individuals worthy of being referenced by him (a so-called “scholar” and “academic” not given to lunatic fringe or superstitious beliefs)! To Date: Robert Priddy adamantly refuses to say one word about his promotion and endorsement of these “lunatic fringe” (Priddy’s favorite slur) individuals.

Robert Priddy was also a promoter of LSD and eulogized his own LSD-induced hallucinations for well over 30+ years! See:

  1. Robert Priddy’s Removal Of Biographical Data From Personal Website
  2. Robert Priddy’s Biographical Suppression
  3. Robert Priddy’s “The Psychedelic Experience” (or Archive 01)
  4. Robert Priddy’s “Truth, Being And Bliss” (or Archive 01)
  5. Robert Priddy’s “A Vision Of Cosmic Energy” (or Archive 01)
  6. Robert Priddy’s 30+ Year Glorification Of LSD

And to top it all off, Robert Priddy believes (even to this day, after his defection) that Sathya Sai Baba possesses genuine paranormal powers.

Robert Priddy: “Nonetheless, it will surely surprise some that I am still almost certain – on the basis of extended personal observation – that Sathya Sai Baba can and does carry out apports, which therefore can appear as materialisations from nothing.”

Apports are said to be physical objects in existence that are dematerialized from one location and rematerialized to another.

Robert Priddy: “Some of what I experienced of SSB’s extraordinary and positive powers through many years is undeniable, even after the most rigorous skeptical investigations, and I do not regard him as any ordinary human being. I have simply had to realize that his actions in the worldly and human sphere are not infallible and are not always setting a perfect example for others.”

Robert Priddy believes that Sathya Sai Baba possesses genuine paranormal powers because the Guru cured him of a debilitating and chronic neck and spinal problem that no one else could cure and whose symptoms no doctor could alleviate. Robert Priddy claimed that Sathya Sai Baba cured him through a series of “dream-operations” that resulted in a literal and physical transformation of his spine, which was supported by x-rays and the testimony of Mr. Kylie (“an osteopath and master of various other disciplines”).

Robert Priddy also claimed that Sathya Sai Baba freed his mother from chronic pain and that a small speck of Sathya Sai Baba’s vibuthi instantaneously cured his paralyzed cat when it suffered from what appeared to be a stroke.

Robert Priddy tries to make the case that Sathya Sai Baba:

  • Is both a fraud and genuine.
  • Both can materialize objects and fakes materializations.
  • Both can cure diseases but really can’t cure diseases.

Trying to pass himself off as an intellectual who currently holds rationalistic beliefs, Robert Priddy miserably fails to explain away the enigma of Sathya Sai Baba. Instead, Robert Priddy appears very confused, conflicted and non-intelligent and ends up sticking his foot further into his mouth with his never-ending and very amusing equivocations.

In Priddy’s “Sathya Sai Baba’s ‘channelers’ and mediums – & Shivaratri fraud” article, he talked about an unsourced story about an unnamed Japanese man who made unusual claims about a ring that Baba gave to him. Funny enough, when Priddy was a brainwashed devotee of Sathya Sai Baba (although he vehemently denied being brainwashed in his book “Source Of The Dream” while a Sai Devotee), he similarly attributed paranormal phenomena to the “green stone” ring that Baba gave to him. About his green stone ring, Priddy said:

“As with other such rings, silhouettes of Sai Baba can be seen in it, sometimes with great clarity, his attitude varying much and very subtly with the lighting conditions. Shading it with a hand even often gives the appearance of the orange robe below the black hair, all set in a translucent green light! At times various types of crosses appear in it and also lotuses and Shivalingams.” (Source of the Dream, “Marching Happy”, page 140)

If the Japanese man belongs to the “lunatic fringe” for making paranormal claims about his Baba ring, then Robert Priddy belongs to the same “lunatic fringe” because he made paranormal claims about his Baba ring as well.

DAVID J. LYONS & THE ‘LUNATIC FRINGE’:
David J. Lyons (an Ex-Devotee of Sathya Sai Baba residing in Seguin, Texas) is the registrant for the bogus SaiPetition.net Domain against Sathya Sai Baba and is strongly suspected as using the fraudulent name “Arthur Klein”. Dave Lyons is a member of IONS and a believer in Edgar Cayce (a psychic trance medium known as the “Sleeping Prophet”).

SHARON PURCELL & THE ‘LUNATIC FRINGE’:
Sharon Purcell (a former Anti-Sai Activist, now deceased) also believed that Sathya Sai Baba possessed genuine paranormal powers. Being unable to explain away Sai Baba’s paranormal abilities, Sharon Purcell attempted to explain away Baba’s abilities by claiming that he was an “Astral Demon”. How’s that for rational and logical?

ALEXANDRA NAGEL & THE ‘LUNATIC FRINGE’:
In her diary notes, Alexandra H.M. Nagel (a prime and very vocal Anti-Sai Activist) expressed belief in Jane Roberts (an alleged psychic and trance medium) who allegedly channeled the spirit of “Seth”. Nagel professed belief that Wolf Messing was a genuine psychic. Even more amusing is how Alexandra Nagel claimed she believed that Sathya Sai Baba could literally and miraculously transmogrify his penis into a vagina and vice versa!

DHYANI JO SINCLAIR & THE ‘LUNATIC FRINGE’:
Dhyani Jo Sinclair is an Ex-Devotee and Anti-Sai Activist who lends her name and support to the Anti-Sai Movement. Dhyani Jo Sinclair is a believer in the Ashtar Command (which believes in UFOs, Aliens, channelers and spirit “walk-ins”) and in Pyramid Power.

ULLRICH ZIMMERMANN & THE ‘LUNATIC FRINGE’:
Ullrich Zimmermann (an alleged “victim” whom Robert Priddy constantly cites as being truthful, credible and honest) believes in and follows Ramtha (a 36,000 year old ascended master as channeled through the psychic medium JZ Knight). Here we have a direct admission from Robert Priddy that Ullrich Zimmermann is part of the “lunatic fringe” seen in cults, ashrams and religious movements. Indeed!

F.R. VAN GUNST & THE ‘LUNATIC FRINGE’:
Robert Favour (real name F.R. van Gunst or Fred van Gunst) has written several Anti-Sai articles that have been published (in full) on the Ex-Baba domain. Robert Favour (who resides in Amsterdam, Netherlands) claimed to have been a follower of Sathya Sai Baba from 1997-1999 and claimed he had a clairaudient connection to Sathya Sai Baba that went wrong, which resulted in being possessed by “djins”. Now, Robert Favour works with trance mediums, psychic channelers and spiritual healers for “entity releasement”. Robert Favour believes that Mother Mira and Ammachi are genuine Avatars (i.e., divine incarnations).

‘LUNATIC FRINGE’ – IN CONCLUSION:
Consequently, Robert Priddy bashed himself, his son and numerous other Ex-Devotees as belonging to the “lunatic fringe” seen in cults, ashrams and religious movements. Now that is funny!

These are the shameless equivocators & kooks who attempt to publicly portray themselves as being rational, scientific, logical and not given to superstitious beliefs (which couldn’t be further from the truth). Isn’t it strange (or is it?) that Robert Priddy bashes devotees for their “lunatic fringe” beliefs when he and his Anti-Sai associates suffer from the very same affliction?

Alleged Sexual Molestation Victim Of Sai Baba Comes Forward With A Shocking Revelation

Ex-Devotee’s of Sathya Sai Baba, (particularly Robert Priddy, Barry Pittard, Brian Steel, Conny Larsson, Timothy Conway, Alan Kazlez and Sanjay Dadlani) are in complete denial about the allegations against Sathya Sai Baba and continue to babble incessently about “sexual abuse” despite the fact that no one has yet to file a basic police complaint, court case or public grievance in India against Sathya Sai Baba. Despite these irrefutable facts Ex-Devotees continually demand legal investigations be made against the Sathya Sai Organization although no legal complaints have ever been filed against the Sathya Sai Organization by any alleged “victim” or by any alleged “victim’s” mother or father!

Ex-Devotees laughable and ridiculous legal demands are akin to accusing a person of theft based on internet complaints, demanding that the thief be punished although there are no basic police complaints or court cases alleging theft! If anyone should have legal investigations brought against them, the legal investigations should be brought against the mothers and fathers of alleged victims who have all (without exception) ignored and dismissed the alleged molestations of their children! When parents have not sought legal action against the Sathya Sai Organization, who do Ex-Devotee’s think they are to be demanding legal action?

Alleged ‘Sexual Molestation’ Victim Claims He Was NOT Molested!

Robert C. Priddy (a caustic critic and defamer of Sathya Sai Baba and others) is a pathological liar of the worst order who cannot be trusted to tell the truth. The same holds true for Ex-Devotees who adamantly refuse to disassociate themselves from Robert Priddy’s malicious defamation campaigns. Robert Priddy has openly libeled Gerald Joe Moreno as being “molested sexually” by Sathya Sai Baba.

Gerald Joe Moreno (one of the alleged and so-called “sexual molestation victims” of Sathya Sai Baba) has courageously come forward and PUBLICLY DENIED that he was “molested sexually” by the Guru. At no time did Moreno ever imply or suggest that he was “molested sexually” by Sathya Sai Baba. When Ex-Devotees lie about and libel Gerald Moreno as being “molested sexually” by Sathya Sai Baba, what does this say about Ex-Devotee”s self-professed “integrity” and “crediblity”? Ex-Devotees are obviously a small and vocal group of fanatics in pathological denial who thrive on self-imagined, self-created and homoerotic conspiracy theories not rooted in fact.

The Failed Court Case Against The Sathya Sai Baba Society Of America

It is amusing to note that Robert Priddy said the following on his Anti-Baba blog:

Robert Priddy: If such a trial were to occur, the full facts and testimonials – and affidavits which are still held – would come to light, and witnesses claiming they were abused by him could then stand forth under foreign ambassadorial protection. Of course, he would have to try to prosecute those who testified against him in their own countries, which would give him and his organization media coverage they evidently cannot risk and also considerable legal difficulties.

Needless to say, such a trail was set to go to court in California in the USA via Alaya Rahm vs the Sathya Sai Baba Society of America. The end result?

  • Alaya Rahm self dismissed his own lawsuit with prejudice.
  • Not even one alleged victim was named as a witness on behalf of Alaya Rahm.
  • Not even one deposition was taken on behalf of Alaya Rahm.
  • Not even one “affidavit” was submitted into evidence on behalf of Alaya Rahm.
  • Not even one “testimonial” was submitted into evidence on behalf of Alaya Rham.

In “Response To Form Interrogatories” in Alaya Rahm’s self-dismissed lawsuit against the Sathya Sai Baba Society (Form Interrogatory No. 6.3, Set One) Alaya Rahm fully admitted that he had been a daily user of illegal street drugs and alcohol from 1995 – 2005. Consequently, during Alaya Rahm’s “Divine Downfall” and India Today Anti-Sai interviews and during the filming of the BBC Documentary “Secret Swami” and the “Seduced By Sai Baba” Danish Documentary, Alaya Rahm was under the influence of illegal street drugs and alcohol while relating his alleged sexual encounters with Sathya Sai Baba. This crucial information wholly undermines Alaya Rahm’s credibility and irreparably compromises the integrity of his claims. Needless to say, Alaya Rahm’s alcoholism and drug addiction have been purposely suppressed from the general public by Anti-Sai Activists, the Rahm Family and the media (Ref).

Supporting Alaya Rahm’s involvement with illegal street drugs and drug addicts is a secondary court case in November 2007 where Alaya Rahm testified on behalf of his friend Valdez T Woods who was arrested and convicted for possession of crack cocaine and marijuana with the intent to deliver (PDF Reference). As a matter of fact, Valdez T Woods was arrested within a mile of Alaya Rahm’s then current residence (as revealed in official court records). Alaya Rahm was identified as a “friend and associate” of drug dealer and drug addict Valdez T Woods.

These are irrefutable facts supported by official court records. Robert Priddy, on the other hand, cannot source his arguments to any official court records or to any legal documentation whatsoever. Robert C. Priddy not only acts as a proxy spokesperson for alleged victims, he also acts as a “proxy guardian” because alleged victim’s mothers and fathers have all (without exception) failed in their moral, ethical and legal duties by ignoring the alleged molestations of their children. The reason why Robert C. Priddy does not shut up is because if he did, the silence would be deafening because no one else besides critics are making all the fuss.

Robert C. Priddy and Ex-Devotees need to shut up and let the alleged victims and their mothers and fathers talk for themselves. The fact that alleged victims and their mothers and fathers are not talking strongly suggests that Sathya Sai Baba did nothing wrong. Robert C. Priddy and Ex-Devotees should take their gripes to the parents of alleged victims and should be castigating them for ignoring their children’s alleged molestations.

Concluding Statement: Robert Priddy The Con Artist

Needless to say, LSD advocate Robert Priddy has a long and established history of distortions, lies, defamations and libels.

Of course, none of these things are surprising considering that Robert Priddy is an LSD Advocate who is thoroughly obsessed with genital oilings and who relishes projecting his homoerotic fantasies onto Moreno. Robert Priddy is allied with Bisexual & Psychic Trance Medium Conny Larsson and Child Porn Purveyor RFJ Sandt and Perverted Fetishist Sanjay Dadlani. Robert Priddy 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!).

The only people guilty of running “massive disinformation and cover-up campaigns” are Robert Priddy 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. What more can one do but laugh at loud at Robert Priddy and his hypocritical finger-pointing?

Terry Lee Scott & Diana Scott : Are They Credible?

Terry Lee Scott and Diana Scott’s names figure prominiently in the Sai Controversy, especially in relation to the alleged Hislop Letters (which Ex-Devotees have widely propagandized through the internet).

The questions naturally arise:

  1. Who are Terry Lee Scott and Diana Scott and what role do they have in the Sai Controversy?
  2. What makes Terry Lee Scott and Diana Scott’s claims credible?

Terry Lee Scott

Terry Lee Scott is an American who studied at Sathya Sai Baba’s educational center in South India when his parents (Terrence Payne and Diana Scott Payne) were Sai Baba devotees.

For reasons unknown and yet to be explained, Terry Lee Scott was “expelled in disgrace” from Sathya Sai Baba’s educational center. Shortly thereafter, Terry Lee Scott made allegations against the Guru (the specifics of which have never been revealed). It has yet to be established whether Terry Lee Scott was actually sexually molested or whether he vindicitively repeated gossipy rumors against the Guru (which can be traced to fundamentalist Christian Tal Brooke).

The fact that Terry Lee Scott made his dubious allegations just after being “expelled in disgrace” from the hostel, strongly suggests an agenda of vindictiveness and retaliation.

Terry Lee Scott has never himself spoke out against Sai Baba. Rather, Terry Lee Scott’s allegations are propagandized by Ex-Devotee’s who never met or spoke to him. It is also peculiar that Terrence Payne (the father) did not believe Terry Lee’s allegations against Sathya Sai Baba, which resulted in a divorce between him and Diane. Terrence Payne would have known intimate details about Terry Lee Scott’s allegations and Terrence Payne was not convinced!

Diana Scott – Diane Scott

Diana Scott (formerly “Diana Payne” who officially spells her name as Diane Scott) is an Art Historian and Certified Ecstatic Trance teacher who is partnered with Jack Satkoski in Idaho (Ref). Diane Scott earned degrees from the University of California in both Art History and Art Studio. Diane Scott is involved with various New Age practices and has taught classes on “shamanic trance postures” as a certified instructor at the Cuyamungue Institute, just north of Santa Fe in New Mexico.

Although Ex-Devotees have strongly implied that Terry Lee Scott was sexually molested in some manner, Diana Scott never attempted to file a basic police complaint, court case or public grievance against Sathya Sai Baba in India for any alleged impropriety. Rather, Diana Scott simply wrote complaint letters to various people in the Sai Organisation. What kind of mother would simply write complaint letters regarding her son’s alleged abuse?

Another very disturbing fact about Diana Scott is that she allowed Ex-Devotees to use her former name of “Diane Payne” to promote their dishonest and factually inaccurate response pertaining to Alaya Rahm’s failed and self-dismissed lawsuit against the Sathya Sai Baba Society Of America.

Although Gerald Joe Moreno personally emailed Diane Scott regarding her alleged involvement in Alaya Rahm’s lawsuit, she adamantly refused to respond.

About Diane Scott (aka “Diane Payne”) Ex-Devotees said:

Among others ready to testify to the court was the former Mrs Diane Payne – USA. Hislop mentioned her in the letters he wanted kept secret that describe her having written to him alleging Sai Baba’s sexual abuse of her then teenage son in the 1970’s. Her child was then a student at Sai Baba’s College at Whitefield, near Bangalore.

Needless to say, Diane Scott (aka “Diane Payne”) was never mentioned in official court records and no deposition was taken from her.

Ex-Devotees similarly claimed that Timothy Conway was “another strong witness standing by” to testify in Alaya Rahm’s case. When Gerald Joe Moreno directly questioned Timothy Conway about Ex-Devotee’s dubious claim, Conway replied:

Timothy Conway: NO, i was never called as a witness, and was never asked to submit a deposition on his behalf…In any case, Al never asked me for any help in this matter. (Ref)

Since Diane Scott’s name was never mentioned in official court records, Ex-Devotee’s use of her name is dishonest and fraudulent. Diane Scott has indirectly allowed and supported Ex-Devotee’s dishonesty and fraudulence by refusing to disassociate herself from their propaganda.

Terry Lee Scott & Diane Scott – In Conclusion

Therefore, it is Moreno’s personal opinion that Terry Lee Scott & Diane Scott’s allegations against Sathya Sai Baba are heavily mottled with dishonesty, vindictiveness and deceit. Since Ex-Devotee’s have widely and pervasively used the names of Terry Lee Scott and Diane Scott to support their smear campaigns against Sathya Sai Baba, Moreno believes it is only fair that the former and current names of Diana Scott (aka Diane Scott aka Diana Payne aka Diane Payne) be revealed. After all, Ex-Devotee’s can often be seen gnashing their teeth about using real names (although many of them used anonymous intenet nics).

Alleged Hislop Letters Prove Nothing

The alleged and dubious Hislop Letters (which do not reflect Dr John Hislop’s known writing style) are NOT “proof” that Sathya Sai Baba did anything wrong. The alleged Hislop Letters simply document a dubious complaint made against Sathya Sai Baba by Terry Lee Scott (a former student at Sai Baba’s College).

Terry Lee Scott was actually “expelled in disgrace” from Sai Baba’s Hostel (the details of which have never been released by Ex-Devotees or Diana Scott). After Terry Lee Scott was “expelled in disgrace from the Hostel”, only then did he make his allegations against Sai Baba. It is no secret that Sathya Sai Baba has been accused of sexual impropriety by Tal Brooke (whose allegations have been circulating since the mid 70’s at Sai Baba’s ashrams). Therefore, Terry Lee Scott could have simply repeated a rumor pertaining to Tal Brooke’s allegations. The alleged Hislop Letters are not “proof” or “evidence” of sexual abuse. If anything, the alleged Jack Hislop letters are proof that someone complained about Sai Baba. That’s it.

Terry Lee Scott’s mother (Diana Scott) never filed a basic police complaint, public grievance or court case against Sathya Sai Baba in India for any alleged impropriety and is thereby guilty of being an “accomplice in sexual molestation crimes” (an argument repeatedly used by Ex-Devotees, particularly Timothy Conway). Since Diana Scott refused to do the ethical, moral and legal thing by filing a basic police complaint, court case or public greivance against Sathya Sai Baba in India, she is guilty of ignoring her son’s allegations. What kind of mother would ignore the alleged molestation of her child and simply send out complaint letters?

Terry Lee Scott’s Own Father Didn’t Believe Him

It is surprising to note that Terry Lee Scott’s own father did not believe his own son’s allegations against Sathya Sai Baba. This resulted in a divorce! Terry Lee Scott’s father would have known all the intimate and private details regarding the allegations. Terry Lee Scott’s father was not convinced.

Dr John Hislop Investigates

Based on the alleged letters, John Hislop (also called “Jack Hislop”):

  1. Investigated the matter most thoroughly.
  2. Made explicit inquiries directly to Sai Baba.
  3. Made explicit inquiries directly to various individuals who worked at Sai Baba’s Brindavan College (specifically mentioning Jack Hand by name).
  4. Obtained information that Terry Lee Scott had actually been “expelled in disgrace” from the Hostel just before he made his allegations against Sai Baba.
  5. Was ultimately convinced beyond all doubt that there was no truth to the rumors against Sai Baba.

If it looks like an unsubstantiated rumor, sounds like an unsubstantiated rumor, reads like an unsubstantiated rumor….it’s an unsubstantiated rumor!

John Hislop Letters – Final Thoughts

As already disscussed before, the main people ranting and raving about the alleged Hislop Letters are:

  1. Timothy Conway (a Guru promoter, New Age advocate and UFO conspiracist who believes that Sathya Sai Baba may have molested alleged victims like aliens are alleged to do through abductions!)
  2. Robert Priddy (an LSD advocate who has openly falsified sexual molestatation claims and who has a history of claiming to possesses telepathy)
  3. Conny Larsson (a self-proclaimed Prophet and psychic trance medium for the spirit of Maharishi Vyasa)

All of these facts should rightly raise suspicion and doubt about the alleged integrity of Anti-Baba sychophants who would have everyone infer something sinister through blind speculation and blind belief.

Robert Priddy (a caustic critic, defamer and libeler of Sathya Sai Baba and others) has written about the so-called Hislop Letters on his Anti-Baba wordpress blog and referenced PhD Timothy Conway.

Although Robert Priddy can often be seen trashing and bashing Guru promoters, New Age advocates and superstitionists, he hypocritically and self-righteously cited PhD Timothy Conway (a Guru promoter, New Age advocate and superstitionist) as an authority regarding the alleged Hislop Letters (to which no original copies are in existence).

Timothy Conway PhD – The True Believer

Although PhD Timothy Conway can often be seen attempting to present himself as a rational and logical voice against Sathya Sai Baba, he is a true believer and promoter of Gurus [3], Mystics [3], Enlightened Masters [3], psychics [1] [2] [4], levitation [5], bi-location [5], miracles [5], remote-viewing [4], elementals, meditation [2] [6], paranormal powers [5], aliens [4] [10], rebirth [1] [7], reincarnation [1] [7], karma [8], oracles [2], I-Ching [2], sensitives [1] [2], channelers [1] [2], astrology [2], astrologists [2], palm-reading [2], non-duality [9], etc. (the list goes on and on).

For example, if you are looking for an answer to a difficult problem, Timothy Conway PhD suggested the following solutions:

PhD Timothy Conway: “Ask God (Spirit, the one God-Self) for guidance and for some kind of ‘omen’ or ‘sign,’ if needed, to proceed in a certain direction (i.e., making choice A, B, C or whatever). Be willing to wait several days or weeks (or, in some cases, months or even years for this guidance to manifest)…Use an oracle, such as the I Ching (Book of Changes). More simply, you can ask for Divine Guidance and then flip a coin–with heads meaning one choice, tails meaning the other choice. If you like, flip it 10 times and see if a clear pattern emerges. You might say, ‘Well, how the coin flips is simply due to chance.’ Perhaps. But one can also trust that there is a deeper Principle behind everything that happens, and you can ask this Divine Guiding Intelligence to show you an answer via the coin-tossing process. Alternatively, you can create a slightly more sophisticated oracle of your own by getting out 3 or 4 pieces of paper. Then write ‘yes’ on one, ‘no’ on another, ‘wait’ on a third piece of paper, and, if you like, ‘wrong question’ on the fourth piece of paper. Then turn them face down, scramble them up, and pick one of the 3 or 4 pieces of paper to get guidance this way…You can also consult a psychic ‘sensitive’ and/or an astrologer or a palmist (Indian jyotish astrology followed by Western astrology seem to be the most accurate astrology systems. And, curiously, palmistry and astrology seem to complement each other as different methods for getting to the same ‘karmic’ information on the soul’s mission, destiny, strengths and vulnerabilities).” (Reference)

Perhaps Robert Priddy & Timothy Conway sit around flipping coins, tossing papers, consulting the I Ching, consulting Astrologer Kai Nicolai Priddy (Robert Priddy’s son) or consulting Psychic Trance Medium Conny Larsson to formulate their opinions about Sathya Sai Baba?

Timothy Conway – A UFO Conspiracist

Timothy Conway also believed and endorsed (Ref) the alleged experiences of Shirlи Klein-Carsh, a so-called “Indigo” (an alleged extraterrestrial alien that voluntarily incarnates on Earth). Shirlи Klein-Carsh claimed she was psychologically, spiritually and artistically guided by a cleverly disguised alien from Sirius (the star in the constellation of Canis Major) who worked as an electronics repairman in a second-hand shop. Timothy Conway said:

PhD Timothy Conway: “This is a fascinating study of someone with sensitivities hardly dreamed of by most persons. Other books present the carefully presented and reasoned case for the existence of inter-dimensional aliens interacting with humans. This book goes straight into the mystery and wonder of the human-alien contact.” – Timothy Conway, PhD., author of ‘Women of Power and Grace’

Furthering his alien and UFO beliefs, Timothy Conway attempted to argue that if Sai Baba possesses paranormal powers, he could easily “warp spacetime” by creating an “insular interdimensional environment” where he could engage in abuse without easy detection. Attempting to bolster this asinine argument, Timothy Conway argued that people who are abducted by aliens and who experience the “missing time” phenomenon, have been lifted, transported and relocated to other areas without their spouses being aware of anything amiss. That’s right, Timothy Conway believes that it is possible that Sai Baba molested alleged victims on another dimension, which is why it is so difficult for them to prove their allegations and why there is an abysmal lack of witnesses supporting their claims (Ref: Conway Email No. 10).

Nice “scholarly” referencing there, Mr. Priddles!

I am sure all those rationalists, atheists and skeptics that cite Robert Priddy on their Anti-Baba webpages are in for a rude awakening!

Robet Priddy erroneously accused Gerald Joe Moreno of “libeling” Timothy Conway. Needless to say, Timothy Conway has never himself accused Moreno of “libel”. Apparently, anything negative said about Ex-Devotees amounts to “libel” in the perverted and extremist mind of Robert Priddy (who has openly libeled Moreno as being sexually molested by Sathya Sai Baba).

Concluding Statement: Robert Priddy The Con Artist

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

Of course, none of these things are surprising considering that Robert Priddy is an LSD Advocate who is thoroughly obsessed with genital oilings and who relishes projecting his homoerotic fantasies onto Moreno. Robert Priddy is allied with Bisexual & Psychic Trance Medium Conny Larsson and Child Porn Purveyor RFJ Sandt. Robert Priddy 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!).

The only people guily of running “massive disinformation and cover-up campaigns” are Robert Priddy 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. What more can one do but laugh at loud at Robert Priddy and his hypocritical finger-pointing?

Is Timothy Conway Going To Hell? Tal Brooke Thinks So.

It is extremely perplexing why PhD Timothy Conway (a true-believer in Gurus, Enlightened Masters, Mystics, Hinduism and Eastern Philosophy) cited Tal Brooke (an Evangelical and Fundamentalist Christian) as an authority and reference against Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba.

In Tal Brooke’s book “Riders Of The Cosmic Circuit, The Dark Side of Superconsciousness”, he attacked Hinduism, claimed that enlightenment is an evil path and that God-Men and Gurus are in a state of perfect demon-possession. Therefore, Timothy Conway’s reference to Tal Brooke has amusing repercussions against him, his beliefs and his advocacy of Gurus, Enlightened Masters, Mystics, Hinduism and Eastern Philosophy.

One could similarly cite Tal Brooke as an authority and reference against Timothy Conway’s promotion of “demon-possessed” God-Men and Gurus and the evil paths of enlightenment they promote through sinful Eastern Philosophies.

Since Tal Brooke heavily relied on subjective, fanatic and religiously-based arguments (which all originated from Brooke’s LSD-induced hallucinations) to draw his conclusions that Gurus are in a state of perfect demon possession and that enlightenment is an evil path leading to Satan, what does this say about the integrity and objectivity of his claims against Sathya Sai Baba?

Why does Timothy Conway cite this type of person as a credible and reliable source for his disinformation campaigns against Sathya Sai Baba? Apparently, PhD Timothy Conway doesn’t mind compromising his own beliefs to further his smear campaigns against his former guru.

Books By Guru & Cult Promoter and self-described “sagely author” Tim Conway:

  • Women of Power and Grace – Nine Astonishing, Inspiring Luminaries of Our Time by Timothy Conway, Ph.D. (April 1996 • 351 pg • soft • ISBN 1-882978-27-4)
  • India’s Sages: Nondual Wisdom from the Heart of Freedom by Timothy Conway, Ph.D. (Winter 2009 • 400 pg • soft • $24 • ISBN 1-882978-32-3)
  • India’s Sages Source Book: Nondual Wisdom from Hindus, Buddhists, Jainas, Tantrics, Sants, Sikhs and Sufis by Timothy Conway, Ph.D. (Winter 2009 • 700 pg • soft • $28 • ISBN 1-882978-35-8)

Furthermore, Tim Conway intends to publish:

  1. Our Religions’ Future: Truths, Trends and Challenges for Old and New Spiritualities
  2. Healing Our World: Crucial Solutions for Urgent Problems (A Call for EcoWisdom, Social Justice and Spiritual Liberation)
  3. Spirit, Science and Deep Wonder: Discovering Consciousness, Cosmos, Life, Afterlife, & Other-Life.

Needless to say, all of these books would be labeled as “cultic”, “demonic”, “disinformative”, “occult” and “New Age” by fundamentalist Tal Brooke.

Tal Brooke believes that anyone who does not accept Jesus Christ as one’s only Lord and Savior is going to hell. This would include Timothy Conway.

Timothy Conway was so utterly desperate to smear Sathya Sai Baba, he blindly cited fundamentalist Tal Brooke. Timothy Conway not only shot himself in the foot, he also shot the feet of innumerable gurus, saints and sages that Tal Brooke believes to be demon possessed! If Tal Brooke is so worthy of being referenced against Sathya Sai Baba, surely Tal Brooke must be worthy of being referenced against other Gurus as well.

On thing is certain, Timothy Conway won’t be citing Tal Brooke in his two new books eulogizing and praising over 40+ gurus! If it impacts Timothy Conway’s money-driven bottom line, “suppress, distort and deny” seems to be the name of the game.
