Robert Priddy (5). Reports Sai Baba Ashram Donation Scams
- In Face of Ashram Scams, Sai Baba Says: “What can I do? My hands are tied”
- Process of Spurious Rationalization By Scammed Devotees
- Cognitive Dissonance and Cults Are Inseparable
"Robert Priddy was head of the Sathya Sai in Norway for fifteen years, a frequent contributor to Sanathana Sarathi, Sai Baba's official magazine which goes round the world, and is a retired academic of the University of Oslo. He relates that he and his wife Reidun donated thousands of pounds sterling to the Sathya Sai Central Trust. However, while still devotees, they were to learn from well-informed insiders that donated money is regularly subject to much waste and embezzlement, despite Sai Baba’s repeated and unconvincing denials".
"Many devotees from various countries are aware of most shocking irregularities in the ashram’s handling of large payments and other arrangements concerning the purchase of apartments with the ashram. Very shaken devotees tell of being denied access to what they had properly and legally purchased".
