Barry Pittard And ‘Shadow of the Guru’ Website

Visit the Shadows of the Guru Busters blog

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

Barry Pittard is:

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

Is Barry Pittard A ‘Professor’?

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

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

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

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

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

Barry Pittard & Sathya Sai Baba’s Powers:

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

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

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

Barry Pittard’s Smear Campaigns Exposed:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Barry Pittard’s Secrecy & Confidentiality Ploys:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Barry Pittard’s Queer Obsession With Allegations Of A Sexual Nature

Barry Pittard (a caustic critic and defamer of Sathya Sai Baba and others) constantly immerses himself in allegations of sexual abuse (almost on a daily and/or weekly basis as evidenced on his Anti-Baba blog) like a sexual deviant who has nothing better to do with his time.

Barry Pittard is so thoroughly obsessed with allegations of sexual molestation, he intensely meditates and visualizes those acts with such intensity, he actually praised and eulogized Robert Priddy‘s sexual molestation libels against Gerald Joe Moreno. If Barry Pittard has the audacity to endorse fabricated sexual abuse allegations against Gerald Joe Moreno, what other fraudulent sexual molestation accusations are he endorsing as well?

Barry Pittard never (ever) witnessed a single incident of alleged abuse by Sathya Sai Baba. Nor was Barry Pittard ever sexually abused by Sathya Sai Baba. Therefore, why does Barry Pittard appoint himself as a proxy defender of alleged victims? Are alleged victims incompetent? Are alleged victim’s mothers and fathers incompetent as well? Not even one alleged victim and not even one alleged victim’s mother or father has even tried to file a basic police complaint or court case against Sathya Sai Baba in India. Why then is Barry Pittard making such a fuss if not to delude, deceive and mislead? Barry Pittard’s prurient, queer and fetish-like obsession with allegations of sexual abuse should raise a red flag about his character.

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

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

The only people guilty of running “massive disinformation and cover-up campaigns” are Barry Pittard and Ex-Devotees who have attacked hundreds of Sai Devotees & Non-Devotees alike and who have created hundreds of webpages to defame, libel and smear Gerald Joe Moreno. What more can one do but laugh at loud at Barry Pittard and his hypocritical finger-pointing?

Robert Priddy’s Queer Obsession With Allegations Of A Sexual Nature

Homoerotic Fantasizer Robert Priddy (a caustic critic and defamer of Sathya Sai Baba and others) constantly immerses himself in allegations of sexual abuse (almost on a daily basis as evidenced on his Anti-Baba blogs and websites) like a sexual deviant who has nothing better to do with his time.

Robert Priddy is so thoroughly obsessed with allegations of sexual molestation, he intensely meditates and visualizes those acts with such intensity, he actually falsified sexual molestation accusations against Gerald Joe Moreno. If Robert Priddy has the audacity to fabricate sexual abuse allegations against Gerald Joe Moreno, what other sexual molestation accusations are he falsifying as well?

Robert Priddy never (ever) witnessed a single incident of alleged abuse by Sathya Sai Baba. Nor was Robert Priddy ever sexually abused by Sathya Sai Baba. Therefore, why does Robert Priddy appoint himself as a proxy defender of alleged victims? Are alleged victims incompetent? Are alleged victim’s mothers and fathers incompetent as well?

Why then is Robert Priddy making such a fuss if not to delude, deceive and mislead? Robert Priddy’s prurient, queer and fetish-like obsession with allegations of sexual abuse should raise a red flag about his character.

Even more disturbing is how Robert Priddy claimed to possess telepathy without the aid of LSD and claimed to possess telepathy with the aid of LSD! This is the same man who wants us to believe his hateful and bitter accusations against Sathya Sai Baba!

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!).

Robert Priddy And RFJ Sandt Whine About ‘Distortions’

Robert Priddy and Reinier van der Sandt have whined considerably (as they often do) about Moreno on their Anti-Baba WordPress blogs. Robert Priddy said:

Robert Priddy: “Moreno went to India seeking God in Sathya Sai Baba. He proclaims that Baba is ‘vishvarupa’ – i.e. an incarnate form of God. He still believes in Sai Baba’s divinity, witnessed by his endless adulatory blogs (despite having believed for years he is a sexual abuser!). Though I formerly considered Sai Baba an avatar with divine qualities, I never hailed him as Father of Jesus – simply reported that he had made that claim. Never have I hailed him as Allah who sent Muhammad [perish the thought! – this is an outright falsification (or at best false memory syndrome on Moreno’s behalf?) Moreno distorts everything. Amusing that he seems not to see that he offends all those alleged millions who still believe Sai Baba is all he claims to be, clearly implying that they are all mentally unsound! Since 2000, they are in denial, though, and many have a cognitive disorder, as Moreno certainly shows he has.”

Fist and foremost, let us take a look at Gerald Joe Moreno’s actual words (emphasis added):

Gerald Joe Moreno: “Robert Priddy (a caustic critic and defamer of Sathya Sai Baba who once hailed the Guru as God Incarnate and thereby the Father who sent Jesus, Allah who sent Muhammad and the Creator of the Universe)…” (Reference)

Moreno did not claim that Robert Priddy explicitly stated that Sathya Sai Baba was Allah in human form. Since Robert Priddy accepted Sathya Sai Baba as an Avatar (i.e., God incarnate in human form), he thereby accepted Sathya Sai Baba to be the Father who sent Jesus, Allah who sent Muhammad and the Creator of the Universe.

As a matter of fact, Robert Priddy wrote in his former Pro-Sai book that Sathya Sai Baba’s advent was prophesied thousands of years ago in the Mahabharata and Old Testament!

Moreno does not believe that Sai Devotees are “mentally unsound”. Robert Priddy has argued (repeatedly) that Sai Devotees are mentally unsound, brainwashed, suffer from mental disorders and belong to the “lunatic fringe” seen in cults, ashrams and religious movements. In Robert Priddy’s criticism of Moreno, he again accused many Sai Devotees as having a “cognitive disorder”. Since Robert Priddy believes all these things about Sai Devotees, Moreno correctly pointed out that Robert Priddy must have suffered from the same mental unsoundness, brainwashing, mental disorder, cognitive disorder and lunacy when he was a Sai Devotee for 17-26 years!

For example, Robert Priddy argued that dreams of Sathya Sai Baba are “usually considered to be symptoms of some form of mental ‘illness’ in many countries”. Since Robert Priddy claimed he had over 300 dreams of Sathya Sai Baba, he thereby conceded that he displayed “symptoms of some form of mental ‘illness’” when he was a Sai Devotee. Since Robert Priddy claimed he had (and continues to have) dreams of Sathya Sai Baba after becoming an Ex-Devotee, he apparently still displays “symptoms of some form of mental ‘illness’”.

Amusing, the only person who came forward to defend Robert Priddy was Reinier van der Sandt, a man who openly boasted about viewing child pornography and having a pornography addiction that settingcaptivesfree.com help him overcome!

Robert Priddy Guilty Of Distortions

In Robert Priddy’s response, he said, “Moreno went to India seeking God in Sathya Sai Baba. He proclaims that Baba is ‘vishvarupa’ – i.e. an incarnate form of God”. Moreno did not go to India seeking God in Sathya Sai Baba, nor did Moreno ever claim that Sathya Sai Baba is “vishvarupa”! Gerald Joe Moreno is the webmaster for the vishvarupa.com domain, which has pictures of numerous Saints, Sages and Religious Art. Robert Priddy cannot source his comments (i.e., distortions) with any factual citations because Moreno never (ever) claimed that he went to India seeking God in Sathya Sai Baba or that he believed Sathya Sai Baba to be “vishvarupa”. For Robert Priddy’s information, “vishvarupa” is not “an incarnate form of God”. To the contrary, “vishvarupa” is a Universal or Cosmic spiritual vision that contains and consumes all forms in creation.

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!).

Although Robert Priddy whines about Sai Devotees and their alleged “cognitive disorders”, Robert Priddy does not say one word about his friends and allies who suffer from the same faults! So who exactly is guilty of a “cognitive disorder” if not Robert Priddy?

Kevin R.D. Shepherd Cited Ramtha Adherent Against Sathya Sai Baba

Kevin Shepherd had the following to say about Ullrich Zimmermann (an alleged sexual abuse victim of Sathya Sai Baba):

“One of the most arresting testimonies has only recently been duly evaluated. Ullrich Zimmermann (a German now living in America) has become noted for three lengthy online video interviews (at the US portal blip.tv.com) in which he describes in detail his relationship with Sathya Sai Baba.”

Kevin Shepherd conveniently forgot to mention that Ullrich Zimmermann is a New Age follower of Ramtha (an alleged 36,000 year-old entity as channeled through the psychic medium JZ Knight). It is indeed peculiar that Kevin Shepherd (a strong Anti-New Age advocate) would be citing the testimony of a New Age follower against Sai Baba, calling his stories “most arresting testimonies”.

Kevin Shepherd also forgot to mention that 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 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!

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”. Leave it to Kevin Shepherd to leave out these wholly relevant facts and attempt to whitewash Zimmermann’s accounts by citing only self-serving information taken exclusively from Anti-Sai websites (which one would not expect from a serious researcher or scholar).

And to top it all off, Ullrich Zimmermann actually claimed that Sathya Sai Baba literally and miraculously transformed his genitals (from a penis to a vagina and vice versa) with a snap of his fingers twice! 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 Kevin Shepherd endorsed, believed and described as being “most arresting testimonies”. Nice to know that Kevin Shepherd (who attempts to portray himself as rationalistic and “sober”) is citing genital-switch miracles, paranormal phenomena and the testimony of a New Age follower against Sathya Sai Baba.

What does this say about Kevin Shepherd? Kevin Shepherd is obviously a very gullible and naive person who is willing to give credence to New Age beliefs by claiming that New Age followers are intelligent, honest, credible and reliable individuals who are worthy of being referenced by him (an alleged “scholarly” author not given to superstition or superstitious beliefs). Again, I am sure this information is going to be very disillusioning to Kevin Shepherd’s readers and admirers (as few as they are).

Barry Pittard’s Second Ullrich Zimmermann Lie

Barry Pittard apparently suffers from some sort of mental defect in which he hears things people never said. Barry Pittard has been publishing several very disturbing and completely untrue statements on his Anti-Sai conspiracy blog about Ullrich Zimmermann (a German ex-devotee of Sathya Sai Baba and current devotee of the alleged 35,000 year-old Lemurian Warrior and Ascended Master “Ramtha”) and Sathya Sai Baba.

First, Barry Pittard erroneously and wrongly claimed that Ullrich was 14 years old when he had his first alleged “white tantric” experience with Sathya Sai Baba (Reference), a blatant and shameless untruth. Ullrich said he was 21 years old when he had his first alleged “white tantric” experience with Sai Baba.

Now, Barry Pittard is claiming that Sathya Sai Baba performed oral sex on Ullrich Zimmermann when Ullrich never said such a thing! Barry Pittard tells numerous lies about Sathya Sai Baba and tries to peddle his lies as the truth to his unsuspecting readers. Gerald Joe Moreno has been pointing this out for a long time and now others can easily verify it for him/her self.

Barry Pittard published the following comments on his Anti-Sai conspiracy blog:

Barry Pittards Second Ullrich Zimmermann Lie

Barry Pittard’s Second Ullrich Zimmermann Lie

Ullrich Zimmermann’s testimony of Sai Baba perpetrating oral sex on him
Like Alaya Rahm, over the years, a number of young men, from a number of countries, have come forward with accounts of sexual molestation by Sai Baba. Most of them do not wish to go public. Former devotees (not always working in co-ordination) have collected affidavits, the number of which legal counsel have advised not to discuss publicly. David Savill, assistant producer of ‘The Secret Swami’, told me that the BBC unearthed a number of other compelling cases which were not of that hefty number that we had on our files. There has just been (January 2007) – entirely without our group’s knowledge that it had been made seven years ago and was now going to air – a US television interview of a young German man, Ullrich Zimmermann, who very articulately recounts sexual abuse by Sathya Sai Baba including (as in so many other accounts from around the world) oral sex performed on him by his – then! – spiritual master:

It is amusing the Barry Pittard should bring up Alaya Rahm. Alaya’s allegations are a glorious hodge-podge of contradictions, suppressed information, embellishments and shocking facts. The following links make my entire case against Alaya Rahm:

Alaya Rahm’s Self-Dismissed Lawsuit Against The Sathya Sai Baba Society
A Scathing Response To Critics About Alaya Rahm’s Failed Lawsuit
The Truth About The Secret Swami

Barry Pittard does not divulge that the actual number of alleged affidavits (which have never been released publicly in any way, fashion or form) number ten. That’s right, only ten alleged affidavits are in existence and Robert Priddy said that most of the affiants have already released their testimonies on the internet (so the actual number of private testimonies is less than a handfull).

It is also amusing that Barry Pittard said that the reason why the affidavits are not discussed publicly is because of advice obtained through “legal counsel”. Since 1997, no one has filed a basic police complaint or court case against Sathya Sai Baba in India. No one has even tried. Despite numerous claims of obtaining “legal counsel”, having compelling “evidence”, etc., Sathya Sai Baba has never been charged with any crime, sexual or otherwise. Period.

Lastly, Barry Pittard falsely claimed that Ullrich Zimmermann had oral sex “performed on him” and that Ullrich gave a “testimony of Sai Baba perpetrating oral sex on him”. These claims are utter and complete lies! Ullrich Zimmermann never claimed such things.

As Gerald Joe Moreno has often said, the more Anti-Sai Activists say, the less he has to defend. Ex-Devotees expose themselves as liars, embellishers, deceivers and worse. How can anyone believe anything Barry Pittard has to say when he can’t even get basic information correct? One must also remember that Barry Pittard openly associates himself with the fully exposed pervert and Jesus-Sex-Fetishist, Sanjay Kishore Dadlani.

Barry Pittard’s First Ullrich Zimmermann Lie

Ullrich Zimmermann (a German ex-devotee of Sathya Sai Baba and current devotee of the alleged 35,000 year-old Lemurian Warrior and Ascended Master “Ramtha”) claimed that he had “white tantric” experiences with Sathya Sai Baba when he was 21 years old (which he originally recalled while drunk at a Ramtha “wine ceremony”).

Zimmermann claimed that he first learned of Sathya Sai Baba when he was 14 years old and he would occasionally attend Sai meetings with his mother in Germany. Ullrich Zimmermann made it very clear that his very first visit to India to see Sathya Sai Baba occurred when he was 20 years old. During that first visit, Zimmermann said that Sathya Sai Baba completely ignored him. He returned the following year when he was 21 years old and claimed that he had 5 interviews in which he received rings, a bracelet, an “oil-treatment” on his chest (that instantaneously cured him of a breathing ailment) and “white tantric” experiences that included Sathya Sai Baba literally and miraculously transforming his genitals from female to male twice.

Alan Steinfeld (the interviewer) asked Ullrich Zimmermann for clarification about his age when he had these alleged experiences and Zimmermann confirmed he was 21 years old a couple of times. Funny enough, Zimmermann believed that the “white tantric” experiences were an “honor” conferred on him and after the experiences, he was “exhilarated”, “uplifted”, in “complete joy”, in a “happy state” and was in “bliss”. Ullrich said that he received spiritual benefits and changes from the “white tantric” experiences, which included an incredible kundalini experience and “strong energy dreams”. And to top it all off, Zimmermann said, a couple of times, that he felt (and still believed, at the time of the filming of the videos) that he was not sexually abused by Sai Baba!

Gerald Joe Moreno wrote about this in his article entitled Ullrich Zimmermann And Sathya Sai Baba.

Leave it up to the pathological liar and embellisher, Barry Pittard, to completely misrepresent the facts on his Anti-Sai conspiracy blog and claim that Ullrich Zimmermann was sexually abused by Sathya Sai Baba when he was 14 years old! A complete, total and easily confirmable LIE!

These are the types of shameless lies and distortions of the truth that Barry Pittard purposely tells to mislead others about Sri Sathya Sai Baba. Of course, Gerald Joe Moreno has been pointing out Barry Pittard’s hypocrisy and untruths for long time. Now, the general public can easily confirm it for themselves.
