Open Letter from Glen Meloy to Dave Lyons and all other courageous former devotees

Open Letter from Glen Meloy to Dave Lyons and all the other courageous former devotees and truth seekers everywhere....... who have chosen to stand up and reveal the sexual molestation's and other crimes committed by Sathya Sai Baba and their cover-up by the officials and prominent devotees of his organization.

Dear Dave Lyons,

I really appreciate your taking the time to detail and share your well written thoughts about this major abomination of our time.

And thanks for putting the onus of responsibility on the free will of the individual.

When Robert Bozzani (Head Trustee of the Official Sai Organization in the USA) utters "We cannot understand the ways of God .........and we cannot bring God down to the human level" as his explanation for the molestation's...... his words have to be completely unacceptable to any decent thinking individual.

This monstrous cover-up, especially by the USA Sai Organization officials under the umbrella of Dr. Michael Goldstein is deplorable and despicable beyond all description.

And when medical doctors (and especially psychiatrists like Dennis Gersten) who refuse to even look at the overwhelming evidence and who won't even read "the Findings", this has to be dereliction of the highest order.

Shame Shame Shame on these stewards of humanity who claim to heal and treat the afflicted when they won't allow their egos to admit that they might have made a mistake...........Perish the thought that they might have to
tell the world that in spite of all their academic excellence, that they too were duped into joining and subsequently covering up for one of the world's most heinous mind controlling cults.

Their deliberate act of not wanting to even read about or to investigate the already mountainous reporting by hundreds of former devotees and responsible media shows they are not interested in developing a prognosis, yet alone a diagnosis..........And if that be the case, how in the world can they be of any help to their patients, yet alone to themselves???

Now is the time for all sincere and truth loving devotees
to take off their blinders, get out of their state of denial and demand that their so called leaders at least warn all unsuspecting center visitors, parents and guardians not to leave unescorted boys and young men alone with Sathya Sai Baba in his notorious interview rooms.

Surely, the defections of hundreds, if not thousands of former loving and devoted devotees has to have some significance among the still existing devotees and followers of Sathya Sai Baba ??? Can they not now open their hearts and at least question and have open discussion with their center leaders about these horrible issues???

Where is the Love??? How can they stay devoted to a  pedophile that has been accused by so many of their former loving and sincere friends???

Is there no compassion for the victims??? Can they not realize that it might have been their own family members who were so abused behind that infamous "curtain of shame"???

Surely, no loving person who claims to be the most all powerful God of Gods would have to sexually abuse his young followers??? What possible justification can there be for those crimes???

If he (Sathya Sai Baba) is truly the most all powerful God, why does he need metal detectors to protect himself and his devotees???

If he (Sathya Sai Baba) is truly the most all powerful God, why does he need armed soldiers with assault weapons to protect his ashram???

If he (Sathya Sai Baba is truly the most all powerful God), why can't he heal by the mere look of his eyes ???

If he (Sathya Sai Baba is truly the most all powerful God), why did he allow the allegedly most holy of all temples in the world to be desecrated and defiled by the spilling of blood inside the temple from the victims who were murdered  by the Puttaparthi police in 1993 and then later covered up by Sathya  Sai Baba and his chief henchman, Indulal Shah who refused to allow any investigation by appropriate authorities ???

May all the Dave Lyons of this world rise up to voice their concerns over this most hideous charlatan who dares to masquerade in a cloak of goodness all the while he entices in the name of God and sexually violates his young victims behind his now infamous "Curtain of Shame."

Subject: The 100% Responsibility Factor

(Note: In yesterday's message ("Of Heroes and Heels") I overlooked a very important warrior in India, B. Premanand. In 2001 Mr. Pemanand published a mighty volume of 800 pages, listing in vast detail the machinations and chicaneries of SSB and his cohorts, entitled MURDERS IN SAI BABA'S BEDROOM. Mr. Premanand exposes the coverup by the ashram authorities (primarily Sai Baba himself and Indulal Shah), and the many discrepancies in the various police reports. "Murder most foul" would be an understatement.) There are many other heroes that have not been mentioned, and I regret that I do not know all of them.

                                  "I am responsible for what I see.
                               I choose the feelings I experience, and I decide
                                 upon the goal I would achieve.
                              And everything that seems to happen to me
                                 I ask for, and receive as I have asked."

"No accident nor chance is possible within the universe as God created it, outside of which there is nothing. Suffer, and you decided sin was your goal. Be happy, and you gave the power of decision to Him Who must decide for God for you. This is the little gift you offer to the Holy Spirit, and even this He gives to you to give yourself. For by this gift is given you the power to release your savior, that he may give salvation unto you."--A COURSE IN MIRACLES, Text, p.448.

  Strange ideas? Does this mean that we are 100% responsible for everything we think, say, and do? What is this "...power to release your savior"? What is the true meaning of salvation? Does independence, attendant with 100% responsibility, clash with dependence upon the savior? What a confusing state of affairs you may be thinking. Helen Schucman, who scribed A COURSE IN MIRACLES between 1965 and 1972 claims the "Voice" she "heard" was that of Jesus--she being an atheist and anti-religion at that time.

  Aside from this controversial idea that Jesus would dictate, over a 7-year period, the most profound spiritual, metaphysical, philosophical, and psychological system ever recorded to an atheistic psychologist, can we critically examine this idea of 100% responsibility without having reference to any traditional scriptural or religious orientation? Can we do this from a strictly scientific basis? Can we avoid crossing over into philosophy or theology in this quest? Can we approach this inquiry by deductive AND inductive reasoning--and if we do this have we not crossed the line into philosophy? If we apply the Socratic method are we not into philosophy ipso facto (=by the fact itself; by the very nature of the deed)? By extant appearances, we live in a time when everyone and everything else is to blame except the doers who do the deed.

  When we join anything we are sacrificing some of our freedom within the group or organization, however small that portion seems to be. If we have the free will to join anything, are we not 100% responsible for the consequences of membership? Can we not resign our membership if we are no longer satisfied with the conditions of our attendance and duties? Does this not apply from the nuclear family all the way up to national citizenship?  The case I am making here is that what seems to be in our best interest(s) in the beginning of something new may prove otherwise with some experience. If we believe we have free will, and we live in a free society, then we are 100% responsible for our acts. If these acts are not outside of the scope of being illegal or unethical, then we have every right to join any group that tickles our fancy, n'est-ce pas? When a group or organization no longer serves our purpose(s), we have the right to resign, to defect from it--be it our tribe, religion, or nation--such is that status of freedom as we see it in America. If one remains "locked in" to an adverse situation how can that not be self imposed? (Note: I am not advocating any semblance of dereliction of duties that one has freely or otherwise taken on) The point being stressed here is that we are responsible for commissions and omissions of every waking moment of our lives. When one discovers that evil is lurking within one's own "household" (i.e., there's a fungus among us), it IS incumbent upon us that we take action. Dare we stick our heads in the sand like decent Germans did in Nazi Deutschland? And here I am speaking to both devotees and former devotees. Do we test to the max the axiom "all that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing"?

  With few exceptions--excluding the dragons, heels, and skunks of the higher officer corps of the SSO--all the current devotees (that I know personally) within this worldwide organization of millions are good people. I am saying, however, that they are 100% responsible for NOT investigating the hundreds (if not thousands by this time) of charges of SSB's criminal acts of pedophilia, sexual molestations, murders, financial and other impropieties perpetrated by a coterie of clever and clandestine cads--all under the aegis and direction of SSB. An objective investigator could not fathom this from visiting any Center, or Regional meeting, or even at the world headquarters (Prashanthi Nilayam) in India. But, unlike the scandals within the Catholic Church regarding pedophile priests, and the Bishops who covered up for them, which has wounded this 2,000-year-old institution, the criminal acts of SSB and the SSO coverup will doom it to the tomb. Remember this: time heals all wounds; time also wounds all heels. Here in America everything I am relating is below media radar, but not so in some European countries, notably Britain, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and others. More to come.


N.B.: I inadvertently omitted the great efforts of many former devotees of the Netherlands, and many Americans of Dutch background. My sincere apologies for this oversight.
