The Wax Lingam MIRACLE!

Keeping in tune with my previous article about Robert Priddy’s gullibility when he was a Sai Devotee, I found the following “wax lingam” story in Priddy’s Pro-Sai book entitled “Source Of The Dream”:
“While compiling an extensive index of Baba’s words, Reidun and I were reading the texts and making notes daily. One evening, tired after a strenuous day, we felt like dropping it, but recalling Baba’s call to duty and self-discipline, we carried on with the work. The candle on our shrine must have burnt so low that we over-looked it when we retired for the night. The next morning, to our great perplexity, we saw that a small, green and perfectly-formed Shiva lingam, about one and a half centimeters in height, had formed from the candlewax. It must have dripped from the candle as the flame fradually sank and gutted out. The lingam was of tapering shape and even had ring-like markings, as seen in some Shiva temples. This was evidently a leela, because wax never ordinarily drips that way.My son Kai was intrigued and tried to work out the physics of it, coming up with the explanation that it could have formed by gradually smaller drips as the flame sank. Two weeks later a candle in his own flat also produced a lingam of the same size and color. However, the wax would have had to drip four times the distance in that case, which makes the physics of it incomprehensible. Perhaps the lingams were not formed by the drips at all? How the two lingams were of the same shade of green is also inexplicable. Incidentally, Kai had previously worked tirelessly on preparing a data program for making the index.” (Source Of The Dream, ‘The Universal World Teacher’, pg. 211-12)

Indeed, the green wax lingam that formed on Robert Priddy’s candle-holder is unique and I have never seen dripping wax produce that type of shape before. The objective facts of the matter are that the lingam was made out of candle-wax and formed at the base of a candle holder that held a burning candle the night before it formed. Being unable to explain away the wax lingam, Robert Priddy intelligently, logically and rationally speculated (sarcasm implied) that perhaps the wax lingam was some sort of divine manifestation independent of the candle and its drippings.

Since it is Robert Priddy’s current belief that Sathya Sai Baba is a fraud, his Sai-Devotee speculations were indicative of his gulliblity, ‘true-believer’ state-of-mind, naivete and “backward intellectually” beliefs. However, the strange thing about it all is that Robert Priddy currently believes that Sathya Sai Baba does possess genuine paranormal powers, is psychically sensitive and can materialize apports.

Some of the reasons why Robert Priddy believes these things is because Sathya Sai Baba cured him of a debilitating and chronic neck and spinal problem that no one else could cure and whose symptoms no doctor could alleviate. Robert Priddy also claimed that Sathya Sai Baba’s freed his mother from chronic pain and that a small speck of Sathya Sai Baba’s vibuthi instantaneously cured his paralyzed cat when it suffered from what appeared to be a stroke.

Robert Priddy tries to make the case that Sathya Sai Baba is both a fraud and genuine, can materialize objects and fakes materializations and can cure diseases but really can’t. Trying to pass himself off as an intellectual who currently holds rationalistic beliefs, Robert Priddy miserably fails to explain away the enigma of Sathya Sai Baba, appears very confused and non-intelligent and ends up sticking his foot further into his mouth with his never-ending and very amusing equivocations.

To Be Or Not To Be Anonymous

Robert Priddy is a hypocritical equivocator who can’t make up his mind whether or not anonymous online identities are good or bad. Robert Priddy has no problem when he disperses numerous slurs, defamations, accusations, stories, “testimonies”, hearsay accounts, rumors, gossip and allegations from people who are completely anonymous on his Anti-Sai websites. However, when it comes to anonymous Sai Baba Proponents, Robert Priddy gnashes his teeth, foams at the mouth and raises a huge cry about how anonymity is a shield for “cowardly creatures hiding under a stone” and for people lacking “personal integrity”. Let us take a look at a few comments made by Robert Priddy about anonymity and anonymous online identities:

“Daren’t you put your name to your abusive comments. I see you are using different anonymous IPs - registered in Texas, but you are in UK I know.You got my mail and I reckon it stings to hear the truth.Perhaps you can explain why Sai Baba lied outright about me… that I do this for money, and that I am ‘jealous’ Ha ha!! You see, I KNOW he is a liar.

I was never disgruntled because of lack of attention - I had enough interviews and after I learned what he is really up (you know well what I mean!) to I would not want to go near him under any circumstances!

Pitiful that you haven’t the courage to stand forth like a man! So much for your personal integrity! Of course, your comments to Wordpress will never be posted… unless you should come to your senses.

Robert Priddy”
“Surnames and locations, if you please! I want to know who wrote this e-mail and takes full responsibility for it. If none of you dare so much even as to stand forth personally, you will be below contempt for the whole world of decent people out here. You still try to hide in anonymity behind an alleged ‘group’. In this way you still flaunt your ingenuousness and show that you have no understanding of how smears by nameless people affect the big world out here. So this is a big test for you. Come on, don’t be chicken-livered… full and controllable identities of every one of you… and no false names among them, mind you.”
“We are upright and not afraid, like you, Linda whoever you are… for you dare not even give your proper full name like all the many cowardly and cheap slanderers from the Sai camp (but your IP is from Australia). “
“You sign you e-mail ’support group’. In other words, an anonymous sender. Whether you are one person or a group, I wonder why you are unable to sign your name(s)? You may reply with full names and addresses, otherwise you will only prove to us that you are cowardly creatures hiding under a stone. “

However, when Robert Priddy used the anonymous online identity of “Lisa demoniser” on QuickTopic (Reference), not only did he attack a Sai Proponent anonymously, he defended the right of people to post anonymously on the internet! Robert Priddy said:

“You do not recognise the right of anonymity on the internet when it is to protect against demonisers like you claim to be! If anonymous posters are cowardly, then millions are cowards.” (Reference)

Of course, Robert Priddy’s comments directly contradict his former position that anonymous posters are “cowardly creatures hiding under a stone” and are people who lack “personal integrity”. Apparently, when Robert Priddy is posting under fake names and under the guise of anonymity, he thinks he is perfectly entitled to do so without being a “cowardly creature” or compromising his “personal integrity”.

Robert Priddy attempted to create an anonymous website attacking me on AngelTowns2 (Reference), but I recognized the folder name and easily identified him as the webmaster. Robert Priddy even attempted to post anonymously on as “truthpromoter” and only divulged his name after I exposed his identity there. Robert Priddy posted anonymously on the QuickTopic forum using the names “Lisa demoniser” and “bandbox” (Reference).

However, Robert Priddy is not the only Anti-Sai Activist caught posting under multiple, fake and anonymous identities. Reinier Van Der Sandt posted under multiple fake names on the SathyaSaiBaba2 Yahoo Group and was forced to concede that he had engaged in dishonest behavior (Refs: 01 - 02). Robert Priddy, Sanjay Dadlani, Tony O’Clery, Barbara Dent and UsedByBaba collectively posted under 90+ fake identities on QuickTopic (even using the names of Pro-Sai Activists, including my name: Reference).

You will not find even one single reprimand or apology from Robert Priddy about the proven fake names and anonymous posts made by Anti-Sai Activists. This proves that Robert Priddy is a hypocrite and a biased and bitter extremist who cannot reconcile his precept with practice. All Robert Priddy can do is blindly accuse others of “libel”, “dirty tricks” and “ad hominem” attacks without referencing or sourcing his comments to anything factual or verifiable.

This is the guy who is attempting to "expose" Sathya Sai Baba. The more Robert Priddy says, the less I have to defend. He makes the case for me that he is dishonest, bitter, vindictive and deeply conflicted. Thank you, Mr Priddles.

Robert Priddy's Gullible / Brainwashed Years

Just how gullible was Robert Priddy when he was a Sai Devotee for 17-26 years? The answer is very gullible. For example, Robert Priddy published (in his book “Source Of The Dream”) the following scans to Laurens Van Der Post’s “The Night Of The New Moon” book-cover and claimed that one could easily discern the form of Sathya Sai Baba in them.

Notice how Robert Priddy enhanced the color on the edited scan and had to carefully shape Baba’s hair from the clouds? I looked long and hard at the images and cannot see Sathya Sai Baba in them. I suppose if one were desperate enough, one could see Sathya Sai Baba in the clouds (no matter how vague the perception). However, these scans show how gullible, naive and “backward intellectually” Robert Priddy was when he was a Sai Devotee.

About the alleged form of Sathya Sai Baba on the book-cover, Robert Priddy said:
“A second leela, which we felt was a form of recognition by Baba for our carrying out regular study of his teachings, occurred similarly one evening when we plodded on with our reading, even though we were very tired. My eye was suddenly drawn to the form of Sathya Sai in the clouds of an evening sky on the front cover of a book that I had recently read. The book is a deeply spiritual account of the life and death in a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp by Laurens van der Post, titled Night of the Moon. It is curious, too, that the night of the new moon is known in India as the night of Shiva. The figure of Sai, leaning forward as if to dispense vibuthi, can be figured out from the background.” (Source Of The Dream, ‘The Universal World Teacher’, pg 212)

Robert Priddy was one of those gullible, naive, “ignorami”, “backward intellectually” and “ignorant peasants” when he was a Sai Devotee for 17 years who believed in Avatars, lilas, divine manifestations, gnomes, trolls, fairies, possessing demons, elves, UFOs, extra-terrestials, leprechauns and elementals. Robert Priddy is bitter and vindictive because he fully documented his own gullible, naive, brainwashed and non-intelligent devotee behavior in his Pro-Sai book for the world to see! What’s even more funny is how Robert Priddy bashes Sai Devotees for acting and believing in the very same manner he did when he was a Sai Devotee. Laughable!

Robert Priddy - The Hinduism Basher

Robert Priddy wrote an article entitled “How can so many Indians be fooled so much of the time?”, in which he mentioned various stories in the Ramayana and Srimad Bhagavatam and bashed them as being believed by people who are naive, gullible, “backward intellectually” and “ignorant peasants”. Not only did Robert Priddy bash Hindus, Hinduism and their scriptures, he is currently making many slurs (although Barry Pittard boasted ex-devotees do not slur: Ref) against his former Guru whose feet he kissed and worshipped as God Incarnate for 17-26 years.

Even in his Pro-Sai book (“Source Of The Dream”) Priddy published several pictures of his altar upon which he displayed at least two pictures of Sathya Sai Baba’s lotus feet, a large and small picture of Sathya Sai Baba, an image of Sri Ganesha and a picture of Shirdi Sai Baba all surrounded with flowers, peacock feathers, sea shells, flowery containers and a power quartz crystal! See the following images for proof:

Robert Priddy found Sathya Sai Baba’s teachings to be so inspirational, he compiled an online index of 18,000 separately detailed entries named “Back To The Source”. As a matter of fact, Robert Priddy had the following to say about Sathya Sai Baba’s teachings:
“It is truly impressive how, wherever Sathya Sai Baba has spoken and whatever his audience, his vision has always had a one-pointed focus…Unlike other major educators or spiritual masters whose lives are known from youth, Sai Baba has never had to modify any tenets of his public teachings or to develop them through time. Such confident consistency is truly striking.…Baba’s way of teaching is unique and uncommonly attractive, in its dealings with everything from everyday problems to the deeply mysterious, from the most serious questions of life to the humorous. No one to my knowledge gives such directly simple, yet deceptively deep and subtle, answers to the most enigmatic of questions, nor does so in more straightforward and powerfully-convincing ways than does Baba…No spiritually-interested person who reads Sai discourses or writings can fail to be impressed by the clarity and simplicity of these teachings, which bear comparison with any known higher spiritual teaching…Some insights surpass those to be found in any scripture or comparable work known, at least, to the present writer…”

In Source of the Dream, Robert Priddy even hailed Baba as the Universal Teacher whose advent was prophesized in the Bible, the Mahabharata and the Ocean Of Light. That’s right, Robert Priddy cited the Mahabharata as a source to support his belief that Sathya Sai Baba’s advent was prophesized thousands of years ago. Consequently, Robert Priddy continually bashes himself as having been a naive, gullible and “backwardly intellectually” “ignorant peasant” when he was a Sai Devotee (although he devoted an entire chapter in his book claiming he was not brainwashed, was still skeptical and did not follow blindly).

Strange enough, Robert Priddy loves to bash and trash Sanjay Dadlani’s beliefs in the Ramayana and the Srimad Bhagavatam (thereby conceding that fellow Anti-Sai Activsts are naive, gullible, “backward intellectually” and “ignorant peasants”: Ref). It is also amusing that many critics and ex-devotees of Sathya Sai Baba possess the very same type of beliefs that Robert Priddy loves to ridicule in Sai Devotees. See my article: ‘Lunatic Fringe’ In Cults, Ashrams And Religious Movements.

The more Robert Priddy says, the further he sticks his foot into his mouth. While attempting to mock Sathya Sai Baba, Sai Devotees and Sai Baba’s teachings for their oh-so-obvious fraudulence, naievete and outrageous claims. Robert Priddy fails to realize that he is thoroughly compromising the integrity, intelligence and rationality of himself and other ex-devotees who belonged to (for many years) the very same group he now condemns as naive, gullible, “backward intellectually” “ignorant peasants”. Now that funny!
