Spiritual Healer Erik Yaman Konuralp Endorsed By Sai Baba Critic Robert Priddy
Robert Priddy (a caustic critic of Sathya Sai Baba) ceaselessly attempts to portray himself as a “scholar”, skeptic, scientist, and voice of reason on his Anti-Sai wordpress blog and Anti-Sai websites. As a matter of fact, Robert Priddy can often be seen siding and associating himself with Indian rationalists, skeptics and atheists and continually derides and mocks psychics, healers, mediums and channelers as “absurd charlatans” belonging to the “lunatic fringe“ seen in cults, ashrams and religious movements.
Erik Yaman Konuralp : Robert Priddy & Kai Nicolai Priddy
It should come as no surprise that Robert Priddy is openly an admirer and promoter of Yaman Konuralp (Pic), an alleged psychic healer, Reiki Master in the Usui, Medicine Buddha Reiki practitioner (which involves remote / distance healing),
SKHM-Seichim Reiki practitioner, New Age sound therapist, aura cleanser, chakra aligner, hypnotherapist, meditation practitioner, yoga practitioner, Chi Kung practitioner and a teacher of “internal energy” cultivation exercises (Refs: 01 – 02).
On Yaman Konuralp’s website, it says:
“PRIDDY Robert Crichton, a former musician now living in Oslo, is an admirer of Yaman Konuralp’s feel, originality and amazing percussive technique.”
Kai Nicolai Priddy (Robert Priddy’s son), helped Yaman Konuralp with his CD entitled Inner Percussion – A Natural Sound System:
Inner Percussion + keyb/guitar Kai N. Priddy
Into it – Inner Percussion + Kai N. Priddy synth
Keep On – Inner Percussion + keyb/guitar Kai N. Priddy
Kai Priddy was the guitar player for “Vampire State Building”, an industrial band from Norway. The band was known for their wildly eccentric live performances that included theatrics involving transvestites, dildos, knives, rubber fetish outfits and strange and comical costumes (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 promoter of various self-professed psychics, trance mediums, reiki healers and people holding “superstitious” beliefs (including his own son, Kai Nicolai Priddy, who is heavily into astrology and is the webmaster for AbacusAstrology.co.uk).
Robert Priddy is not only an admirer and promoter of Yaman Konuralp, he is also a staunch promoter and endorser of:
Amusingly, Robert Priddy once wrote an article professing belief in elementals, 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 (Ref).
Robert Priddy was also a promoter of LSD and eulogized his own LSD-induced hallucinations for well over 30+ years! See:
So when Robert Priddy attempts to present himself as a “rational”, “scholarly” and “scientific” voice of reason against Sathya Sai Baba, one can’t help but to laugh out loud at his blatant hypocrisy, equivocation and deception.
