Barry Pittard’s Articles Most-Sought During Sathya Sai Baba Health Crisis (Part 1)

Posted by Barry Pittard on April 23, 2011


In that the links may be useful for readers – especially those new to, or less familiar with, this blogsite – I shall give below a list of well-’hit’ Urls at this blogsite which, as I can see from internal statistical read-outs, are getting solid ‘hits’. To put the matter mildly ….  Over the next days, I intend to follow up with Parts 2 and 3.  

Perhaps not since the heady days of considerable exposure commencing circa 2000 has there been such a ferment of questioning among devotees and those in various states of wavering in their attitudes in regard to the trustworthiness or otherwise of Sathya Sai Baba.  Over the intervening years, former devotee analysts, researchers and commentators have worked extremely hard to gather documentation (often from official Puttaparthi sources). As well, there has been the work of supporting individuals and families, particularly those worst devastated by their contact with that dark version of Sathya Sai Baba that the BBC named ‘The Secret Swami’. 

Plenty of these usages originate from:  – Google and other search engines. - Our allied blogsites and websites, such as Robert Priddy’s highly organized main website: Sathya Sai Baba In Word and Action  and his blogsite:  Sathya Sai Baba Deceptions Exposed and from the general website which contains a huge amount of contribution by former devotees from many countries. – Important locations, especially for those who wish extensive, scholarly presentation are Brian Steel’s writings at:   Sathya Sai Baba: The Guru Who Claimed to be God on Earth and Recent Research on Sathya Sai Baba and A Bibliography of Apologetic Writings

Many ’hits’ come from individuals who search within ‘Call For Media and Government Investigation of Sathya Sai Baba’ - surfing from the internal links – article to article. – Information passed on by word-of-mouth recommendation, emails, the various forms of social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Skype, and so on.   

But I see too a large inflow of ‘hits’ that I cannot explain by reference to other statistics.  I am supposing that many people are referring each other via word-of-mouth.
