Robert Priddy Dishonestly Alleges ‘Sathya Sai Baba Invites’

On Robert Priddy’s Anti-Sai WordPress blog, he wrote an article about V. Ramnath and claimed matter-of-factly that Sathya Sai Baba personally “invited” him to india on three separate occasions. Needless to say, Robert Priddy is shameless distorting the truth, is obviously suffering from delusions of grandeur and is attempting to deceive gullible and naive readers into thinking that he had some sort of unique and personal relationship with Sathya Sai Baba (he did not).

“Ramnath makes untrue assumptions: I was actually invited by Sathya Sai Baba to go to India several times – including the first time, and – as the Coordinator of the Sathya Sai Organization – to attend his EHV course in 1987 and come to his 70th Birthday too.”

Sathya Sai Baba never personally “invited” Robert Priddy to visit him in India on three different occasions. These are blatant untruths that can easily be refuted by sourcing material from Robert Priddy’s Pro-Sai book “Source Of The Dream”.


ROBERT PRIDDY’S FIRST TRIP TO SEE SATHYA SAI BABA:
How exactly did Sathya Sai Baba “invite” Robert Priddy to India the first time? In the chapter “Sai Answers A Call”, Robert Priddy said he wrote a letter to the Guru expressing a desire to see him in his “earthly incarnation”.

A friend of Priddy’s was to travel to Puttaparthi and took Priddy’s letter with him to India. When Priddy’s friend arrived at the ashram, he was told that Sathya Sai Baba was in Madras. However, the friend took Priddy’s letter with him “on an impulse” to bhajans and Sathya Sai Baba happened to arrive at that time. The Guru made rounds and took Priddy’s letter from his friend. That’s it!

Sathya Sai Baba never said one word to Robert Priddy or his friend that he should come to India. Since Robert Priddy currently contends that Sathya Sai Baba is a fraud, then Sathya Sai Baba taking his letter had no actual significance and did not constitute an “invitation”.


ROBERT PRIDDY’S 1987 TRIP TO SEE SATHYA SAI BABA:
Robert Priddy also alleged that Sathya Sai Baba personally “invited” him to an EHV course at Prashanti in 1987. Once again, Sathya Sai Baba never personally “invited” Robert Priddy to the EHV course at Prashanti in 1987.

In the chapter “The Rat In The Drum”, Robert Priddy narrated the entire story about his trip to Prashanti in 1987. Since Robert Priddy was turning 50 years old, he felt he needed to make a pilgrimage. Robert Priddy asserted that after chanting the Gayatri mantra in Norway, he would see gulls and various birds flying “without exception in the very direction of Puttaparthi”! After praying for “higher confirmation” and sending Sathya Sai Baba a “mental telegram”, he was convinced that Sathya Sai Baba answered his prayer after he rang his travel agent who said there was “no problem” and that he could wait “another week or so” before booking his flight (when earlier the same travel agent insisted he pay for the tickets within 24 hours). That’s it!

Sathya Sai Baba never said one word to Robert Priddy about coming to India to attend the EHV course in 1987. Since Robert Priddy currently contends that Sathya Sai Baba is a fraud, then the entire incident with the travel agent had no actual significance and did not constitute an “invitation”.


ROBERT PRIDDY’S TRIP FOR THE 70TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS:
Since Robert Priddy’s book was published before Sathya Sai Baba’s 70th birthday celebrations, one can only conclude that his visit to Prashanti for the 70th birthday celebrations was similarly based on “signs” he thought he received from the Guru. This is not surprising considering that Robert Priddy claimed he had a psychic telepathic connection with Sathya Sai Baba.


These are the typical types of exaggerations, embellishments and bold-faced untruths that Robert Priddy tells on almost a daily basis on his WordPress blog. Amusingly, Robert Priddy denies he has told a single lie. Since Robert Priddy and Ex-Devotees have miserably failed in their apathetic attempts to bring Sathya Sai Baba to “justice” in the past 10+ years, they resort to smears because the truth does not argue in their favor.
