Warren, United States.
- The truth must be revealed. This violator must be brought to justice.
He is a wolf in sheep's clothing and all who follow and turn a blind eye
to the truth are just as guilty.
Alphonse, Trinidad and Tobago
- Visited Puttaparthi Sept to Dec 1975
- If Sai Baba is
right, an investigation could make disappear all doubts. Otherwise... I
just want to know the truth.
- Follower 1990-2000. Sai Baba is a big business. He and most of members
of SSO should be investigated. They are all rich people!
Ph.D. USA -
Follower 1975-2000 I visited the ashram a number of times, and had
nothing but inspiring experiences. My relationship with Sai Baba was
entirely on the inner plane, with psychic experiences.. When I learned
of the extensive allegations, I severed that relationship. The spiritual
abuse is immense. The truth must be revealed through an official
investigation. Pedophilia is very serious abuse, and I am a mandated
reporter in my profession.
Follower for 21 years. I have been to see Sai Baba twice. I only had
positive experiences with him. No one should excuse or tolerate sexual
abuse of any form. Of course there should be an objective legal inquiry
and I fully support an inquiry.
FRANCE - Libraire Trop de points troubles. Trop de pouvoir sur trop
de personnes. Trop d'interets, d'argent et trop peu de controle.
L'intégrisme passe aussi par des gens comme Sai Baba.
many disturbing points. Too much power over too many people. Too much
interest in money and too little control. “Integrisme” (a Doctrine that
tends to maintain the totality of a system and opposes any evolution)
happens also because of people like Sai Baba.)
I feel strongly for an investigation for the sake of the children more
so, The prime minister should investigate his God and listen to the
people, it should be the people's decision not his personal one not to
investigate bcos vajpayee believes this man is his god.
Fred van Gunst,
- The Netherlands.
Follower 1997-1999. I am psychologist and convinced that Sai Baba is a
fraud and also a danger. He uses mind-control and brainwashing
techniques and holds in that way power over large groups of people,
especially in India. Consider the idea that this man holds influence
over the Indian Prime Minister. He is a Sa Baba devotee, while India is
a nuclear power!!!
Padma Surya, -
1986-2003. I was drawn to SB because I had some very grave personal
problems and hoped there would be a solution. SB never showed any signs
of awareness nor even a sign that he cared in all the years that I had
been a devotee (Was that omniscience?? or compassion??? It must have
been "Love of 1000 mothers" of course!!!. I was never able to understand
why people right under his nose could get away with so much callous
attitude and rudeness, all the while imposing stringent discipline on
people who come to PN from outside. And, may I add, my mother has been a
teacher in one of the SB institutions and my brother an SB student, a
gold medallist at that!!! Both of them known for their shrewdness and
disregard for values (Why fear when I am here???). Of course, now I
know. I am not heartbroken or shocked as many ex-devotees would have
felt after finding out the truth. I just feel liberated from the lie
that was the center of my life. Kudos to all you brave guys for standing
up against this muck!!!!
- I have been a witness to numerous abuses suffered by his devotees,
and have failed to change them, they all are so mesmerised and caught in
a trap. i really pity them, now that this evil person has been exposed,
they would have lost their belief and dignity.
- A guy I know
was sexually abused by Sai Baba.
- Sai Baba is a
dracula . He must be stopped.
- Believe in yourself. Do not be swept away by other's opinion. Please
do not have such opinion that because many believe so I do too. About
Sai Baba he thinks we are fools who can be influenced by his clumsy
vibuti tricks and get hefty donations from the rich and influence the
third world poor and middle class at large who long to have his
blessings to solve their individual miseries. What a clever arithmetic.
- I never believed in baba. But my marriage into a family of innocent
devotees who contribute large sums of money to his organisation is
making me feel sad and confused. I was almost tempted to believe in him
until I came across this site which helped me reason and see things in
their right perspective. I think there are better known spiritual
leaders and genuine ones who are not self proclaimed avatars of his
level but whose teachings carry far more depth and light on
spirituality. I support this cause because I want to know the truth for
the sake of my loved ones and for the greater good for everyone under
- a true guru quickly dispels all doubts in his devotees mind so that
the devotee may focus on the task of realization at hand.
- I was not a devotee but I liked SB teaching and believed it is the
truth. I just planned to go to Puttaparthi when I found out the
"Findings". Thanks a lot. I hope the truth will win.
– Involved from august 2002 to may 2003 I was not his devotee, I just
liked his teachings, was 90% sure that he is an avatar, visited his
ashram at Puttaparthi, and then figured out that not everything is OK
- I am a sexual abuse victim advocate who is concerned for all victims
in the U.S.
- Un hombre que se dice Dios, avatar, debe ser investigado. Pues con
estas afirmaciones, tiene el control sobre muchas personas. Y le da
poder para hacer lo que quiera, muchos pueden y han salido perjudicados
al seguir ciegamente a estos dioses humanos, puesto que pierden la
personalidad y las perspectivas de la realidad.
(A man who says
he is God, avatar, should be investigated. With such statements he gains
control over many people. It also gives him the power to do whatever he
wants, many could and have ended up being damaged after blindly
following such human gods, since they lose personality and the
perspectives of reality.)
Follower 1991/1997 Por tanto tiempo que estuve ciega, que se lleve al
mentiroso vividor y criminal de Sai Baba, a los tribunales.
Sobre todo que
lo sepa todo el mundo.
(For all the
time that I was blind, let this lying criminal scrounger Sai Baba be
taken to court. And
above all let everyone know.)
Antonia Pérez Esquivel, Colombia
- Follower 1993-1997 Que Dios (el verdadero) bendiga a todos los que
han sido psicológicamente dañados por este criminal .Cómo es que nadie
es capaz de ponerlo tras las rejas???
(May God (the
real one) bless all those who have been psychologically damaged by this
criminal. How come no one dares to put him behind bars???)
Lee Yue Heng,
- Follower 1997-2001. If Sai Baba is really who he claims he is, he
should have nothing to hide.
- Noted human
rights violators and shady politicians have been "blessed" by this man.
Greg Gerson, U.S.A
Follower from 1993-? - The Sai Baba organization is a brain-washing
cult and Sai Baba is a false guru.
I regret that I ever got
Giovanni Losantos, Bolivia
- Las obras ocultas de sai baba deben ser mostradas al conocimiento
publico, que ayuda a tener una optica imparcial de estos engaños.
deeds of Sai Baba should be exposed to public knowledge, so that pepole
can have an objective concept of this swindling.)
Mauritius, - A
good knower of vedic literatures will never accept sai baba as God or
even divine....sai is just a yogi with some material mystic powers!!!
- Follower 1987-2002 wedgewood group of seattle,wa. if baba had nothing
to hide....wouldn't he come forward and clear up any allegations?
mothers around the world...don't send your boys to the school until this
is all cleared up..don't take any chances..
United Kingdom -
This sort of blatant abuse to innocent children and young men needs to
be stopped now.
- Come from a
family of followers, but have never followed him myself. I have been
always shocked at how badly written and inconsistent his "philosophy"
is, for God - so embarrassingly unlearned. I have been "backstage" at
the Poornachandra Hall - sheer decadence. My family follows him with the
most innocent of hearts and so it breaks mine that they are so
Patricia Soler, Argentina
- Follower 1988-1999. Soy
psicóloga (profesional) , viajé 4 veces a India . Como devota siempre me
extrañó el "entorno" de Sai , Los líderes de Argentina siempre dejaron
en mi opinión , mucho que desear , subidos al mismo narcisismo que su
"maestro" hablan de austeridad y de rectitud cuando todos sabemos que
hicieron millones gracias a los viajes a India y los "permisos" que el
avatar les otorgaba. De dudosa procedencia pero con el poder que el
dinero y las fama les confiere organizan conferencias en donde cuentan
relatos increíbles ( creíbles para la masa pero vacíos de contenido para
los que piensan un poco más allá de lo meramente fenomenológico) .Todos
estos "shows" .que los devotos "compran" embelesados sirven para ir
nutriendo sus esperanzas y su fe en que algún día también puedan ellos
los "elegidos" para ellos también gozar de total bienestar y felicidad.(
espiritual y material, obviamente) . En cuanto a mi historia, sí
progresé gracias a SB, como psicóloga pude observar la psicopatía in
(I am a
(professional) psychologist, I traveled to India 4 times. As a devotee I
was I always found the Sai “surrounding” rather strange. The leaders in
Argentine always, in my opinion, left much to be desired, trapped in the
same narcissism as their “teacher”, speak of the same austerity and
righteousness when we all know how they made millions thanks to the
trips to India and the “permissions” granted them by the avatar. With
power and fame granted by the money of questionable origin, conferences
are organized in which they relate unbelievable accounts (believable
only to the masses but totally empty in contents for those who think a
little beyond what is purely phenomenological). AS far as my story goes,
I did advance thanks to SB, as a psychologist I was able to observe
- The abuse of
children must be prosecuted by the full force of the law wherever it
takes place. For a spiritual "leader" to indulge in such a practice is
particularly abhorrent. The moral responsibility for the investigation
of the allegations against Sai Baba rests with the Indian government and
their police, but international pressure may help in this matter.
- Follower 1990
to 1999, Former Administrator, Sathya Sai School, Perth, Western
Australia I hope India will acquire the moral fortitude to formally
investigate these allegations.
The Society Of Light.com has long been a force on the Internet to bring
greater awareness to the public about the pedophile activities of Sai
Baba of India. We consider him to be a subangel prophet, not an Avatar
or God Realized Master.
– Follower 1981-1988. Student at Prashanthi Nilayam. God does not take
away innocence from young children. He does not fill their heart with
fear and shame. My only advice to everyone is DO NOT BELIEVE
in anybody who claims to be God or Son of God. Just believe yourself and
- C'est trop
Il faut absolument faire quelque chose et faire tout pour que cela ne se
reproduise plus .Il faut surtout alerter tous les media pour mettre en
garde les gens contre toutes les pieuvres totalitaires.

vraiment le cas de le dire.!
(I’m sick of
dictators of all kinds. With this one it is really a case to be told).
- Never a
follower, luckily, and thanks to the Buddha and Krishnamurti I'm a
friend of many devotees who were damaged both psychological and
economically by Sai Baba and his organization. Shame on the Indian
government who doesn't have any trace of dignity, protecting until now
Tengo muchos amigos dañados psicológica y económicamente por Sai Baba y
su organización. Que la vergüenza caiga sobre el indigno gobierno de la
India, que protege hasta ahora los crímenes cometidos por aquellos.
- Follower for 8
years - now no more. I have no trust on him 'my logic is questioning
him.I think he should be punished otherwise nature will punish him as no
body can go against nature.
Paul Throne, USA
- Follower 1988-2000 - Center education coordinator Have been to see SB
4 times, 1990, 1994, 1995-96 and 1999. Despite many positive
experiences, I believe too many credible accounts of abuse now exist to
pretend it isn't real, including a young male friend of mine who told me
SB fondled him. More frightening to me than the megalomaniac SB is his
organization and its "leaders." When the leaders refuse to hear these
concerns or allow discussion of these events, it has become a complete
- It is a total
shame for all the spiritual organisations around the world if we let
this act of shame to continue.
– Follower 1973
-1978 on and off. I wrote about my experiences with Sai Baba and the
allegations of him being a hermaphrodite and a sexual predator on young
boys in my book 'The Serpent Rising - a journey of spiritual seduction'
published in 1988. These allegations were also aired on national
television - Midday Show - when Ray Martin interviewed me re my book and
also in an article called 'pilgrimage to terror' that featured in the
Australian Woman's Day May 2, 1989. I also tried to bring these things
into the open through an article I wrote for 'Nature And Health' Vol 11
No 2 1990 called 'Mind Control and Religious Cults'.

follower of this cheating pederast and I want this to become public, let
everyone hear about these facts. Please help to let people know who in
reality this man is.)
Rangeet, INDIA -
Follower from 3
years till last month I should not have believed all this crap about
sai baba. If he is really a divine power I would not be undergoing
mental torture like this. He is going to be the reason for the
destruction of one life in this earth that's me. He is called a man of
miracles but I know its not possible in my life as he is a fraud. His
teachings tell about love but when it comes to use practically in life
its of no good.
Follower for 3 years I
want a trial on Sai.
Klaas & Jenny

translator/correctors very disappointed in the 'truth' SB preached.
Contreras, Sweden -

Former Balvikas Teacher I came from Venezuela to Sweden, and Sathya Sai
Baba is a discredit in his Country. I sent letters to the officials in
Venezuela. And I never received an answer. I'm very sorry, but Sathya
Sai Baba is a False Guru.
Gaetano Morales, USA
- Sanatana Dharma
(Hinduism) is a profound and ancient religious tradition that has been
done a great disservice by such false leaders as "Sai Baba".

Agostinelli, Argentina -
I've been investigating the SB controversy for over a year. My articles
have been published in saiguru.net and in Gatopardo Magazine (Colombia).
I collaborated with two TV programs on this subject, broadcasted by "Zona
de Investigación" (Azul TV, Argentina). The initiative of this Petition
is fundamental to climb over the wall of cover ups that protect SB in
Daniel Rowe, USA
Sai Baba is innocent, he has nothing to fear from such an investigation.
In fact, he should welcome it.
Anil Kumar B,
(Had friends who were
involved) This is a great cause. I have always been skeptical about
SSB right from my young age, but was never aware of his pedophilic
activities which shocked me. Very glad that this is happening and
hopefully this will have results.

Rammohan, USA, India -
He may have done
irreparable damage to unwilling and unwitting young kids. A detailed
investigation and interrogation by a set of rationalists and experts
unswayed by blind faith is definitely required. Prosecution of this
demon may help in preventing such false god men in the future. For
Mankind and for Truth and for the abolishment of such perverse forms of
religion I hereby sign this petition.
