Timothy Conway Ph.D - On ‘The Hislop Letters’


In this article, there are links to the December 2007 update, and to previous material concerning the Hislop letters, including Timothy Conway's sworn affidavit, which he had notarized, August 19, 2005, by a Public Notary in Santa Barbara County. California, USA. He sent these circulars to the BBC This World team when its spent over half a year of extensive work preparing documentation and making interviews and other filmed material amounting to 80 plus hours of footage for its documentary, subsequently called 'The Secret Swami' (2004)


"Timothy Conway has just released (December 2007) his clarification of points raised about very indicting letters that were circulated (see dates, etc., in the scans listed below) to peak leaders of the US Sathya Sai Organization by former head, the late Dr John Hislop. This December 2007 update comment by Timothy Conway (with another still to come), into whose possession as president of the Santa Barbara Sai Center these circulars later came, is an important clarification.

"Before resigning in February 2001 - following his investigation of allegations of Sai Baba’s multi-faceted abuse - Timothy Conway Ph.D had been a respected member of the US Sathya Sai Baba movement (president of the large San Francisco center and a liaison-consultant for Northern California in the early to mid-1980s), as well as a longtime member of Santa Barbara, CA, Sai Center since 1988 (in addition to hosting the local Ammachi satsang and his own spiritual groups). Timothy’s key interest has been comparative East-West spiritual traditions, not just emphasizing intellectual expertise but concerned with actual living of the insights and precepts. An independent scholar with a background in psychology, Timothy is a respected lecturer and author of several outstandingly well-reviewed books (e.g., 'Women of Power And Grace'. There is a forthcoming two-volume 'India’s Sages' and other works)"
