Quotes from this article

"Robert Priddy was founder member of the Sai Organization in Norway in 1983 and, for over 15 years, the national leader of the Sathya Sai Organization, resigning his membership 2000. It is an odd irony that he was long known by many as a ceaseless worker in the Sathya Sai Organisation as indeed now he is in the former Sai Baba devotee cause".

"Expressing the great wish he shares with other former Sai Baba devotees, and critics beyond, to see proper, third party investigation of Sai Baba and his organization, he has been active in researching, analysing, creating web presences both via static sites and blogging, and campaigning in the media and so on".

"By early 2004, however, Priddy, who had in the meantime begun, from time to time, to support efforts coordinated by Glen Meloy and the present writer, was closely involved in assisting the BBC with vital contacts and other documentation as it researched what became "The Secret Swami", first screened June 14, 2004 and shown in many scores of countries around the world".

"The date of Priddy’s Sathya Sai Organization resignation (2000) occurred at the height of great activity by networked former devotees but this does not indicate his specific activism at that time. He was intensely investigating, reflecting and writing and organizing his website at His broadest endeavours came after Glen Meloy’s deeply and internationally mourned death, on January 1, 2005".
