This entry is an update to my former articles: Sanjay Defending Sathya Sai Baba & Lord Krishna’s Inability To Protect His Devotees?

On the SathyaSaiBaba2 Yahoo Group Sanjay said:

And damn right, I am so happy that SB temples are being bombed. This is SB’s own karma coming back to him. What a great God he is, he couldn’t even protect his own temple, what a magnificent avatar. I wonder if anyone actually died in the blast (Reference).

Regarding the bombing at the ISKCON temple, let me repeat my former argument (using Sanjay’s words) with a slight modification: What a great God Lord Krishna is: He couldn’t even protect his own temple and devotees on his birthday celebrations. What a magnificent avatar!

Sanjay himself argued that an avatar’s inability to protect his temple reveals the said avatar’s real power. Needless to say, Sanjay just made the perfect argument against his own chosen savior (Sri Krishna) that he made against Sathya Sai Baba.

Sanjay is making this way too easy for me.

Enough said!

Regarding The Bombing Near A Sai Baba Temple:
First and foremost, the bombing did not occur at a Sathya Sai Baba temple. It occurred near a famous Shirdi Sai Baba Temple in Dilsukhnagar (Reference).

Anti-Sai Activists have erroneously contended (as they often do) that the bombing occurred near a Sathya Sai Baba temple in Andhra Pradesh and made the following comments:

At the same time, Naxalites and Maoists continue a bombing campaign in Andhra Pradesh about which the world hears nothing. The Express Network reports on 22-11-02 : “One killed, 16 hurt in bomb temple blast” and “a bomb went off near the popular Sai Baba temple in the crowded Dilsukhnagar area” (see link 2 below). Could it be that not everyone loves SB, as he claims. Not even in his own State?

Fortunately, Gulam Yazdani, the man who committed this bombing (among other vicious attacks), was gunned down and stopped by the police (Reference).

Needless to say, Sanjay jumped onto the Anti-Sai bandwagon-of-deceit and rejoiced in the bombing, expressing his happiness, excitement and delight that a Sai temple was bombed and wondered if anyone was killed!

Sanjay is a sicko desperately in need of orthodox psychological help.

Comment: Continued from previous article on Satch Purcell.

My Life As Sathya Sai Baba’s Prophecy (Part 3)
Satch Purcell (aka “Sathya Sai Purcell”) is now claiming (after a 14 year period) that Sathya Sai Baba “covertly grasped” his groin. Needless to say, Sharon Purcell (Satch’s own mother) never mentioned (in her letters to Glen Meloy) that her own son was inappropriately touched by Sathya Sai Baba (nor were any ex-devotees aware of this information). This is totally new information from Satch Purcell that has been purposely suppressed for 14 years (even from his own Mother).

Sharon Purcell claimed that Satch told her in 1993 that he renounced Sathya Sai Baba because his three friends (Josh Kintz, Jed Geyerhahn and an unknown third male) alleged they had their genitals oiled by Sathya Sai Baba. Although Satch Purcell defected from Sai Baba in 1993 due to hearsay genital-oiling allegations, his own mother was not convinced of his claims and maintained her devotion to Sathya Sai Baba for seven years after her own son defected.

Furthermore, Josh Kintz was 19 years old and an adult in 1993 and he has never come forward alleging sexual abuse against Sathya Sai Baba. Therefore, the hearsay claims made about Josh are suspect.

Jed Geyerhahn’s testimonies against Sathya Sai Baba are so thoroughly contradictory, it is exteremly difficult to take anything he claims seriously. According to Geyerhahn’s testimonies, his last trip to Sathya Sai Baba Baba was when he was 18 in 1991, not 1993. Futhermore, Geyerhahn claimed that he simply had his genitals/scrotum rubbed with vibuthi/oil and said, “Fortunately, I was never taken advantage of any worse”. Geyerhahn also made it clear that by his last trip to Sai Baba, he lost his faith in him. If this is true and if Geyerhahn was in India with Sai Baba in 1993, isn’t it strange that both Satch Purcell and Jed Geyerhahn defected at the same time? Why would Jed Geyerhahn keep visiting Sathya Sai Baba (over and over again) if he felt he was being violated by Sathya Sai Baba? The fact of the matter is that Geyerhahn did not see anything sexual in what Sathya Sai Baba did to him and changed his story only after reading about other allegations. More importantly, Geyerhahn’s own Aunt was present during all the interviews he had with Sathya Sai Baba. To attempt to understand Geyerhahn’s contradictory allegations it is best to read my article about him.

Sathya Purcell signed the bogus Sai Petition as being a follower Of Sai Baba until the age of 23. Satya Purcell was born in 1973, which would mean he was a follower until 1996, not 1993 as alleged by Sharon Purcell in her letter to Glen Meloy. Either way, it is very strange that Satch’s own mother dismissed sexual abuse allegations made by her own son (although Baba allegedly touched him inappropriately) and she continued to follow Sai Baba until the year 2000 when her faith was shattered by her own illness and a highly questionable sexual abuse account from Mark Roche.

Mark Roche claimed in the Secret Swami documentary that he was allegedly abused once in 1976 (when he was approximately 25 years old) and maintained his devotion as a devotee to 1994 (for a period of 15 years). Strangely enough, Roche spent several weeks with Robert Priddy in 1994 and never gave any indication that he was upset with Baba or that anything was wrong. Mark Roche’s testimony came from “out of the blue” and he has neither filed a basic police complaint, court case or even a written testimony about his alleged experiences with Sathya Sai Baba (Reference). In the Secret Swami video, Mark Roche simply claimed that Baba put his penis in his mouth. Roche never claimed that Baba ejaculated into his mouth. However, this is exactly what Satch Purcell claimed that Baba did to Mark Roche. Why would Mark Roche remain a devotee for 15 years after his Guru ejaculated in his mouth? The more critics write, the more convoluted and contradictory the stories get.

Although Satch Purcell alleged that a healing lingam that Baba gifted to Sharon Purcell did not heal anyone, it is important to remember that Sharon Purcell never mentioned anything bad about the lingam.

Thousands of people who are sick and diseased seek healings through Churches, Synogogues, Temples, Mosques, etc. and are not cured. Does this mean that God does not exist for billions of believers? The enigma of suffering is the most difficult issue posed to religion. The fact remains that people of all religions get sick, ill, diseased and die. Just because Jesus, God, Yahweh, Allah, Buddha, Krishna, Shiva, Shakti, Ganesha, etc., do not heal their followers of diseases, adherents do not lose faith in their chosen God. Ex-Devotees seem to think that none of Sathya Sai Baba followers are supposed to get sick or die. As soon as a Sai Devotee gets sick or dies, Ex-Devotees are right there pointing fingers and making all sorts of aspersions and slurs. Yet whenever a fellow member of their Anti-Sai group gets sick and dies, they are writing numerous tributes and praising them for their adherence to truth and righteousness. Even adherents of truth and righteousness get sick and die. What is this indicative of? That their adherence was not genuine?

It is amusing that Satch Purcell wants others to readily believe his hearsay allegations although he was never sexually abused himself. After many years of allegations circulating on the internet and no legal action filed against Sathya Sai Baba, Anti-Sai Activists attempt to make their case by saying people should simply believe them and not question their accusations whatsoever. Those who do question are accused of “demonization” and “slander”, etc. Strange enough, I have shown how Anti-Sai Activists “demonize” and “slander” others (to this day) with proof.

Satch Purcell has decided to ally himself with a bunch of bitter, vindictive and dishonest propagandizers to make his case against Sathya Sai Baba. That is his choice but I am not convinced by his hearsay and ever-changing stories about alleged events he never witnessed himself. Period.

My Life As Sathya Sai Baba’s Prophecy (Part 4)
Apparently Anti-Sai Activists are discombobulated, confused and have the short-term memory of a goldfish. This article is an exact duplicate of the introduction in Satch Purcell’s former article (part 3). Ex-Devotees are trying to make it look like Satch Purcell has written many articles. In actuality, he has written one article and it is being divided into several articles (in an attempt to give impetus to the Anti-Sai Movement’s turtle-momentum).

My Life As Sathya Sai Baba’s Prophecy (Part 5)
This time around, Satch Purcell regurgitated the same story-line (again) that Sathya Sai Baba is a fraud who possesses no genuine paranormal powers even though Sharon Purcell (his own mother) believed Sathya Sai Baba did possess genuine paranormal powers. As a matter of fact, Robert Priddy (an Ex-Devotee) and Barry Pittard (an Ex-Devotee) currently believe (even after their defection) that Sathya Sai Baba does possess genuine paranormal powers.

Satch Purcell (like a person suffering from some sort of paranoid disorder) actually believes (with no proof) that Sathya Sai Baba somehow operates a covert, undercover spy organization that rivals the CIA and is comprised of “taxi and bus drivers, beggars, shopkeepers, restauranteurs, service volunteers and those in the ashram front office, etc., etc.” who keep him informed about everything that happens to all his foreign devotees all around the world!

Needless to say, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Westerners are well aware of how difficult it is to access Sathya Sai Baba’s person. The facts of the matter are:

  • Seva Dals (service volunteers from different parts of India) mostly do not speak or understand English (or other foreign languages) properly and do not have access to Sathya Sai Baba’s person.
  • Indian beggars (who are not allowed in the Ashram except for meals) mostly do not speak or understand English (or other foreign languages) properly and do not have access to Sathya Sai Baba’s person or prominent Sai Devotees.
  • Indian Taxi and Bus Drivers mostly do not speak or understand English (or other foreign languages) properly and do not have access to Sathya Sai Baba’s person or prominent Sai Devotees.
  • Indian Restauranteurs (most who stand outside the Mandir premise to have darshan) mostly do not speak or understand English (or other foreign languages) properly and do not have access to Sathya Sai Baba’s person.

Satch Purcell was apparently very paranoid when he was in India and actually expects others to believe him when he claims that Indians (who cannot understand or speak English properly, let alone other foreign languages) are informants and spies relaying information in a variety of foreign languages about Sai Devotees to Ashram Officials and Sathya Sai Baba.

Trying to bolster his case, Satch Purcell related information as told to him by Jed Geyerhahn. Needless to say, Jed Geyerhahn related wholly inconsistent stories about his alleged experiences with Sathya Sai Baba. It is also important to note that although Satch Purcell claimed Jed Geyerhahn was sexually abused, Jed Geyerhahn claimed he was not sexually abused but stated he received non-sexual oil/vibuthi treatments. Despite all of these accusations by Satch Purcell against Sai Baba, it is important to note that his own mother (Sharon Purcell) did not believe her own son and stayed devoted to Sathya Sai Baba for 7 years after her own son defected. I think that speaks volumes about Satch Purcell’s credibility and what he originally told his mother then versus his embellished recollections now.

My Life As Sathya Sai Baba’s Prophecy, Part 6 (Final)
Satch Purcell (once again) revisited the June 6th 1993 police shooting incidents and relied (once again) on hearsay information about alleged events he never witnessed first-hand. As a matter of fact, Satch Purcell slept through the police shootings that occurred on June 6th 1993. The closest Satch Purcell got to the mandir was the outer perimeter (the closest distance being at least 40-50 feet at the main gate, which devotees would not have been allowed near) and he contended that the water used to clean the cement was pink with blood. There are several significant problems with Satch Purcell’s claims:

  1. Satch Purcell did not know the “pink water” was tainted with blood. Satch Purcell (shocked by the events of the previous night) assumed the worst when he saw pink water and he speculated the water was tainted with blood. One must remember that the four assailants were killed inside the Mandir building, not ouside of it. Satch speculated that the blood inside the Mandir building was swept outside the Mandir building, down the front of the Mandir verandah, down the verandah stairs, smeared 40-50 feet across the Mandir compound, down the main gate entrace and to the feet of walking devotees! This is wholly and utterly absurd. Satch Purcell even aknowledged the long distance between himself and the mandir.
  2. The police shootings occurred around 11:30pm. It is preposterous to think that the Ashram would allow the blood sit in place for 6-7 hours before deciding to clean it up in the early morning hours where everyone could see it (especially considering that devotees get up for Brahma Muhurtham to sing the Suprabhatam and Omkar and line up well before sunrise). Satch Purcell claimed he went to the Mandir around sunrise and I am not aware of anyone else (besides Satch Purcell) who claimed that there was bloody water at the Mandir perimeters.
  3. It is a well known fact that every morning the Mandir premise is swept clean with water. Beautiful rangolli designs decorate all the main entrances to the Mandir compound. Needless to say, besides the white powder used to create these designs, vivid red kum-kum is applied in the center along with flowers. When the red kum-kum mixes with water, it turns it red or pink, hence “pink water”. I forget how many times I stepped in that red kum-kum water only to stain my white pajama pants after sitting down.
  4. Satch Purcell admitted that at the time of police shootings, he was already doubtful about Sathya Sai Baba and concluded a priori that the events were “murder”. How’s that for rational and logical?

Satch Purcell alleged (with no proof whatsoever) that Sathya Sai Baba had the four assailants killed and was directly involved with their deaths. Gee, where is the proof? It is exactly these types of erroneous and shallow comments that undermine and compromise Satch Purcell’s crediblity and highlight his gutter, paranoid and conspiratorial mentality. Not only did Satch Purcell believe Sathya Sai Baba had the four assailants killed (nevermind the two surviving people belonging to the assailant’s group who claimed they never intended to hurt Sai Baba), he also believes that Sathya Sai Baba runs a vast, covert spy operation composed of poor beggars, taxi and bus drivers, restauranteurs, etc., who do not even speak or understand English properly!

And to top it all off, Satch Purcell’s article was originally written on July 4th 2004. This confirms my former comments that Satch Purcell wrote one article it was divided into six articles by the ever-so-desperate Anti-Sai Activists who attempt to deceive others into thinking that they are publishing many articles against Sai Baba when they are not. Consequently, Satch Purcell wrote his article after an 11 year period. It is amusing that Satch Purcell ended his article with a promise that what he wrote was true (even though he had nothing to back up his claims). So concludes Satch Purcell’s article(s) and thank goodness for that.
