‘Lunatic Fringe’ In Cults, Ashrams & Religious Movements

‘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!

KAI NICOLAI PRIDDY & THE ‘LUNATIC FRINGE’:
Robert Priddy’s OWN SON, Kai Nicolai Priddy, believes in Astrology, created an Astrology reading program and even created the abacusastrology.co.uk domain to solicit his Astrology reading program (Reference).

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?

Robert Priddy & Barry Pittard Bash The Ramayana And Fellow Critic

Just recently, the Anti-Sai Siamese-Twins (Robert Priddy and Barry Pittard) publicly humiliated Sanjay and gave him a whopping blow to the face when they said the following (in response to Venkataraman’s stories about Lord Rama’s drama with Ravana, Sabari, Jatayu, Sugriva, etc., in the Ramayana):

“Nor can any intelligent person make good or relevant sense of it in the modern world – it is just a fantastic, impossible concocted story of the ‘Superman’ kind – with ‘monkey-man’ Hanuman lifting and flying aloft with a whole mountain (so Rama could pick out a herb from it!) or jumping across the sea to Sri Lanka. Come on, how can one be so backward intellectually? This may be o.k. for ignorant peasants, but the thinking world must regard it as sheer delusion!”

Did you get that Sanjay?

…it is just a fantastic, impossible concocted story of the ‘Superman’ kind…

Come on, how can one be so backward intellectually?

This may be o.k. for ignorant peasants, but the thinking world must regard it as sheer delusion!

The reason why this is so amusing is because Sanjay is a Hare Krishna Congregational Member who happens to be one those “backward intellectually” “ignorant peasants” who believes in “impossible concocted stories of the ‘Superman’ kind”!

That’s right, Sanjay fully believes that the Ramayana, Bhagavad Gita and Srimad Bhagavatam are Divine Scriptures that document literal and historical miracles, lilas, manifestations and paranormal events in the lives of Avatars (incarnations of God). Sanjay fully believes in the “superman” miracles and stories attributed to Lord Ramachandra, Lord Krishna, Hanuman (the Monkey God) etc. As a matter of fact, Sanjay engaged me in a fierce debate in which he defended his belief that Lord Krishna literally manifested 16,000 human forms, married 16,000 separate wives and procreated with each one of them producing innumerable offspring!

What makes this even more weird is that Sanjay is a staunch defender of the same people (Priddy & Pittard) who openly mock his religious beliefs! This is not the first time that Robert Priddy bashed Sanjay’s religious beliefs. Priddy formerly bashed Sanjay as being: “One of those many ignorami who sustain and spread false beliefs about the powers of black magicians and witches.” See For Yourself.

Niiiiiiice friends you have there, Sanjay.

Sanjay is the black sheep of the Anti-Sai Movement. Keeping in character with his outcast role, Sanjay bleets “Baa Baa” “Baa Baa”, obsessively tracking Sathya Sai Baba-related news so he can twist it for his Anti-Sai friends who use him and his big mouth for their own nefarious ends.

Robert Priddy Bashes Gurus And Hindu Beliefs

Robert Priddy (an Anti-Sai Extremist) wrote an article claiming that Sathya Sai Baba is “One of those many ignorami who sustain and spread false beliefs about the powers of black magicians and witches.”

Apparently, Robert Priddy was also “one of those many ignorami who sustained and spread false beliefs about black magicians and witches” because he was an ardent follower and practitioner of Sathya Sai Baba’s teachings for 17 long years! Priddy claimed to have studied Baba’s teaching in such depth that he compiled an index (over the course of many years) entitled “Back to the Source” that contained Eighteen Thousand “separately-detailed entries” to Baba’s teachings. So if Sathya Sai Baba is an ignorant person who spreads primitive beliefs in black magic and witches, this does not reflect well for Priddy’s intelligence and mental state when he was a former devotee of Sathya Sai Baba for 17 years!

While perusing my archived copy of Robert Priddy’s index “Back To The Source”, I discovered that Priddy actually made reference to “black magic”, “demons”, “evil” and “magic” (meaning that while Priddy was a devotee of Sathya Sai Baba, he was fully aware of of these teachings and thought they were worthy of being referenced)! The extractions read as follows:

Magic, miracle outwardly & leela inwardly 100 S2 18-91 S2

Right out of Priddy’s own mouth when he was a devotee and among the “ignorami who sustain and spread false beliefs about the powers of black magicians and witches”!

Click Here to read an amusing article written by Robert Priddy (going back to 1988) in which he sustains and spreads false beliefs about “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”! Robert Priddy is a deeply conflicted person who not only criticizes others for their beliefs, but attempts (very hard) to suppress information about his beliefs that would include him among the ranks of “ignorami” who sustain and spread false beliefs in superstitious phenomena (even believing that a lizard and butterfly were supernatural manifestations of elemental spirits)!

Ironically enough, although Robert Priddy silently endorses Sanjay Dadlani (a Gaudiya Vaishnava Hare Krishna wannabee), Priddy indirectly and thoroughly bashed Sanjay’s belief in scriptures that happen to promote “false beliefs about the powers of black magicians and witches”! Robert Priddy indirectly called Sanjay Dadlani’s Guru (Srila Prabhupada) and the MahaBhagavata Sukadev Goswami, “ignorami” (both discuss black magic as if it was real)! Furthermore, Priddy indirectly bashed Sanjay’s scriptures (Srimad Bhagavatam and the Bhagavad Gita As It Is) as “spreading false beliefs about black magicians and witches”! Funny how Anti-Sai Activists take such a variegated stance against Sathya Sai Baba that they end up bashing each other in the process and appear very foolish and clumsy as well.

Let us look at some quotes about black magic, vampires, hobgoblins, demons and ghosts (also known as “Yaksas” and “Raksasas”) as discussed by the Srimad Bhagavatam and Srila Prabhupada:

Srimad Bhagavatam 10.55.21: Resorting to the black magic of the Daityas taught to him by Maya Danava, Sambara suddenly appeared in the sky and released a downpour of weapons upon Krishna’s son.

Srimad Bhagavatam 10.66.40: Frustrated by the power of Lord Krishna’s weapon, O King, the fiery creature produced by black magic turned his face away and retreated. Created for violence, the demon then returned to Varanasi, where he surrounded the city and then burned Sudakshina and his priests to death, even though Sudakshina was his creator.

Bhagavad-gita As It Is 9.25 (summary by Srila Prabhupada): Similarly, one can attain the Pita planets by performing a specific yajna. Similarly, one can go to many ghostly planets and become a Yaksha, Raksha or Pisaca. Pisaca worship is called “black arts” or “black magic.” There are many men who practice this black art, and they think that it is spiritualism, but such activities are completely materialistic. Similarly, a pure devotee, who worships the Supreme Personality of Godhead only, achieves the planets of Vaikuntha and Krishnaloka without a doubt. It is very easy to understand through this important verse that if by simply worshiping the demigods one can achieve the heavenly planets, or by worshiping the Pitas achieve the Pita planets, or by practicing the black arts achieve the ghostly planets, why can the pure devotee not achieve the planet of Krishna or Vishnu? Unfortunately many people have no information of these sublime planets where Krishna and Vishnu live, and because they do not know of them they fall down.

Srimad Bhagavatam 10.66 (Summary by Srila Prabhupada): Lord Siva advised him to worship the Dakshinagni fire with black magic rituals. This Sudakshina did, with the result that a fearsome demon with a body of flames appeared from the pit of the sacrificial fire. The demon rose up carrying a fiery trident and at once set off for Dvaraka.

Srimad-Bhagavatam 3:20-21: The demons who were born from the body of Brahma were called Yaksas and Raksasas because some of them cried that Brahma should be eaten and the others cried that he should not be protected. The ones who said that he should be eaten were called Yaksas, and the ones who said that he should not be protected became Raksasas, man-eaters. The two, Yaksas and Raksasas, are the original creation by Brahma and are represented even until today in the uncivilized men who are scattered all over the universe. They are born of the mode of ignorance, and therefore, because of their behavior, they are called Raksasas, or man-eaters.

Bhagavad-gita 9:25 (Summary by Srila Prabhupada): Similarly, one can go to many ghostly planets and become a Yaksa, Raksa or Pisaca. Pisaca worship is called “black arts” or “black magic.” There are many men who practice this black art, and they think that it is spiritualism, but such activities are completely materialistic.

Srimad-Bhagavatam 4:18:21 (Summary by Srila Prabhupada): There are some types of living entities in the form of human beings whose living conditions and eatables are most abominable. Generally they eat flesh and fermented blood, which is mentioned in this verse as ksatajasavam. The leaders of such degraded men known as Yaksas, Raksasas, bhutas and pisacas, are all in the mode of ignorance. They have been placed under the control of Rudra. Rudra is the incarnation of Lord Siva and is in charge of the mode of ignorance in material nature. Another name of Lord Siva is Bhutanatha, meaning “master of ghosts.” Rudra was born from between Brahma’s eyes when Brahma was very angry at the four Kumaras.

Srimad-Bhagavatam 4:10:28 (Summary by Srila Prabhupada): The demon Yaksas are by nature very heinous, and by their demoniac power of illusion they can create many strange phenomena to frighten one who is less intelligent.

Srimad-Bhagavatam 3:20:19 (Summary by Srila Prabhupada): Out of disgust, Brahma threw off the body of ignorance, and taking this opportunity, Yaksas and Raksasas sprang for possession of the body, which continued to exist in the form of night. Night is the source of hunger and thirst.

Srimad-Bhagavatam 6:8:24: O club in the hand of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, you produce sparks of fire as powerful as thunderbolts, and you are extremely dear to the Lord. I am also His servant. Therefore kindly help me pound to pieces the evil living beings known as Kusmandas, Vainayakas, Yaksas, Raksasas, Bhutas and Grahas. Please pulverize them.

Srimad-Bhagavatam 10:4:15 (Summary by Srila Prabhupada): Raksasas are understood to be accustomed to eating their own sons, as snakes and many other animals sometimes do. At the present moment in Kali-yuga, Raksasa fathers and mothers are killing their own children in the womb, and some are even eating the fetus with great relish. Thus the so-called civilization is gradually advancing by producing Raksasas.

Srimad-Bhagavatam 10:6:4 (Summary by Srila Prabhupada): Raksasis learn mystic powers by which they can travel in outer space without machines. In some parts of India there are still such mystical witches, who can sit on a stick and use it to fly from one place to another in a very short time. This art was known to Putana. Assuming the feature of a very beautiful woman, she entered Nanda Maharaja’s abode, Gokula.”

Canto 10, Chapter 63: The Fever in Conflict and Bana Defeated: Discharging sharp-pointed arrows from His bow, the S’arnga, drove S’auri [Krishna] away the Bhutas [spirits of the dead], the Pramathas [mystic spirits], the Guhyakas [the wealth-keepers of Kuvera], the Dakinis [female imps of Kali], the Yatudhanas [practicioners of black magic], Vetalas [vampires], the Vinayakas [demons of education, distracters, humiliaters], the Pretas [ghosts, hobgoblins], the Matas [demoniac mothers], the Pis’acas [child-demons], the Kushmandas [meditation-disturbers, diseasing demons] and the Brahma-rakshasas [fallen brahmins].

Apparently, Robert Priddy is taking jabs and making jests at Sanjay Dadlani’s primitive beliefs, scriptures and gurus who are “many ignorami who sustain and spread false beliefs about the powers of black magicians and witches”.

Poor Sanjay! Even his Anti-Sai buddies consider him brainwashed (although they are not bold enough to come right out and say it). Probably because they suffered from the very same brainwashing they are now attempting to expose in others. The weirdness never ends with Anti-Sai Activists. lol
