|I was once almost entirely positive to all and everything having to do with Sathya Sai Baba (SSB), his ashrams, his representatives, his teachings and himself. That changed, at first only gradually and peripherally. Though I am presently concerned only to expose wrong-doings, misguided teachings and false promises by Sathya Sai, this is simply to ‘balance the account’ as it were, since the positive propaganda machine around Sai (to which I once contributed too much) is so massive, so prone to use disinformation and so closed to any sincere discussion or investigation of unpleasant but crucial facts. Once I thought the teaching of Sathya Sai Baba to be largely sublime, but it proved otherwise in so many aspects – both in his word and action – especially since the 1993 murders.
