VKN - V.K. Narasimhan

VKN - V.K. Narasimhan - A Life Of Devotion
Scans To VK Narasimhan Letters Prove Unwavering Devotion To Sathya Sai Baba

All of V.K. Narasimhan’s verifiable words prove that he was an ardent devotee of Sathya Sai Baba to his death. VKN even eulogized Sai Baba as God Incarnate and the Avatar of the Age about three months before he died (Ref).

Although it is true that V.K. Narasimhan maintained a friendship with Robert Priddy (based solely on their mutual devotion and dedication to Sai Baba), there is little doubt that VKN would have severed his friendship with Priddy when he defected from the Sai Movement.

Robert Priddy (a former follower of Sai Baba for 17-26 years) attempted to con the general public with fraudulent claims that V.K. Narasimhan related negative and criminal accusations against Sathya Sai Baba, various Sai Officials and the Sai Organization. Despite these highly dubious and questionable accusations, it is peculiar that Narasimhan remained a Sai Devotee to his death and never defected from the Sai Movement.

Robert Priddy provided scans to his correspondence with V.K.Narasimhan and attempted to use them (with zero effect) that his claims about VKN are somehow true. However, what the scans do reveal is the profound depth of devotion that Narasimhan had for Sathya Sai Baba. All of the following scans do not document any of the erroneous claims that Robert Priddy attributed to Narasimhan.


Relevant extract below:
“Sai Ram. With the Blessings of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, ‘Sanathana Sarathi’ proposes to bring out a Special Issue to be presented at the Lotus Feet of Bhagavan on His 74th Birthday in November 1999. This Special Issue is devoted to the life, teachings and mission of Bhagavan so as to kindle a wider awareness about the life and work of the Avatar of our age...Yours in Sai Seva, V.K. Narasimhan, Editor ‘Sanathana Sarathi’

V.K. Narasimhan died in March 2000. Even in June 1999 (about nine months before he died), Narasimhan eulogized Baba as “Bhagavan”, referred to the “Lotus Feet of Bhagavan”, referred to Baba as the “Avatar of our age”, introduced the letter with the phrase “With the Blessings of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba” and ended the letter with “Yours in Sai Seva”. Needless to say, these statements wholly refute Robert Priddy’s absurd claims that Narasimhan entertained many doubts about Sai Baba and was critical of the Guru. The November 1999 Special Issue of Sanathana Sarathi (which similarly praised Sai Baba’s Divinity in various ways) was written about three months before Narasimhan died.


Relevant extract below:
From Bapu To Baba
“To My dear friend Priddy, fellow pilgrim to the Lotus Feet of Bhagavan Baba. With esteem and affection V.K. Narasimhan 6-9-1988”

In “From Bapu to Baba”, Narasimhan compared Sai Baba to Mahatma Ghandi and believed that Sai Baba was an authentic spiritual leader whose powerful moral force could not only rejuvenate India but the entire world. VKN referred to Sathya Sai Baba as “Bhagavan”, which means “God”. In Bapu To Baba, Narasimhan referred to Sai Baba as “The Divine Sadguru”, “Sadguru Deva”, “God In Man’s Image” and compared Baba’s Glory to that of Lord Krishna (Ref).


The only reason I included this scan was to show Robert Priddy’s amusing attempts in subterfuge. Robert Priddy omitted relevant text because he wanted to ‘avert problems for innocent Sai Devotees’. The fact of the matter is that Robert Priddy has complete and utter disregard for “innocent Sai Devotees” and can often be seen duplicating their emails, trashing and bashing them, stalking them and posting their pictures with disinformation on his Anti-Sai blog and Anti-Sai websites. This letter may contain names to individuals who possess unsavory information about Robert Priddy, which is perhaps why he developed a new-found sensitivity for “innocent Sai Devotees”.


Once again, Narasimhan ended his letter with “Yours in Sai Seva”. Amusingly, Robert Priddy (who trashes and bashes others for their superstitious beliefs) had an exciting horoscope read for him by a Nadi Astrologer in Bombay. Strange enough, Robert Priddy’s son, Kai Nicolai Priddy, is into astrology and even created an astrology website. As in the previous scan, Robert Priddy purposely omitted relevant information because it contained names to individuals who may possess unsavory information about him.


Narasimhan ended his letter (twice, once with a hand-written post script) “Yours in Sai Seva”. Narasimhan also said, “Of course every act of Bhagavan has a significance of its own.” The only reason why Narasimhan maintained a friendship with Robert Priddy was because of his positive involvement with Sai Baba.


Relevant extract below:
“I do hope that by Bhagavan’s grace you will soon get over your spinal trouble. I presume that you are making regular use of Swami’s vibuthi. A small pinch of vibuthi taken everyday in a glass of water has amazing curative effects.”

VKN referred to Sathya Sai Baba as “Bhagavan”, which means “God”. Once again, Narasimhan ended his letter with “Yours in Sai Seva”. In his book, “Source of the Dream”, Robert Priddy claimed that Sathya Sai Baba cured him of his spinal troubles through alleged “dream-surgeries”, which resulted in a visible transformation of his vertebrae that thoroughly perplexed his doctor.


The VK Narasimhan (VKN) Letters - In Conclusion
V.K. Narasimhan’s scanned letters strongly argue that Robert Priddy maliciously lied about him. This is not surprising considering the fact that Robert Priddy maliciously lies about others unapologetically (fully documented with screen-caps and links). V.K. Narasimhan was a Sai Devotee to his death and there is absolutely no proof that he said one word against Sathya Sai Baba or the Sai Organization (even in private correspondence). Rather, V.K. Narasimhan’s verifiable and written words prove that he was entirely devoted to Sathya Sai Baba (the Guru to whom he dedicated his life for a full 30 years).

COPYRIGHT NOTICE: The scans above were letters that VK Narasimhan personally wrote. Therefore, any claims to copyrights belong to VKN and not to Robert Priddy who publicly released the scans into the public domain through various Anti-Sai websites.

Robert Priddy Removing Biographical Data

After Robert C. Priddy defected from the Sai Movement, he deleted several auto-biographical articles, including his LSD-induced hallucinations and several stories pertaining to his younger years (proving that he is attempting to suppress and cover-up his self-disclosed biographical material because he sees it as a liability to his credibility and integrity).

Before and after screencaps showing the deletions on Robert Priddy's website (click on thumbnails to enlarge):

Robert Priddy's Copyright Blathering

Robert Priddy Attempting To Remove Past Biographical Data From The Internet Under The Pretext Of 'Copyright Infringement':

Robert C. Priddy created his own Wikipedia page in which he publicly solicited himself as a notable person in relation to Philosophy and his former Indian Guru Sri Sathya Sai Baba. Robert C. Priddy released his biographical data on a personal website hosted by a free, online hosting company in Norway ( On this free web-hosting domain, Robert Priddy personally disclosed biographical data that included stories of his experimentation with LSD, cannabis and other drugs as well as information about his early years. Robert Priddy deleted many of these public domain webpages after he defected from the Sai Movement (Ref).

Although Robert C. Priddy is now attempting to remove his relevant, unsavory, public and self-disclosed biographical data from the internet, he (as well as his Anti-Sai associates) duplicated complete text content from Pro-Sai websites (including RadioSai) and added commentaries to them. When the same is done to him, however, he cries “copyright infringement” although the biographical material in question was released by him into the public domain as self-disclosure.

Proof That Robert Priddy Is Attempting To Suppress His Biographical Information, Which He Feels Is A Direct Liability To His Personal Credibility And Integrity:

- Robert Priddy personally contacted my webshosting company with complaints of copyright infringement and my webhosting company found his copyright complaints without merit and disregarded them.

- Robert Priddy personally contacted Google with complaints of copyright infringement and Google found his copyright complaints without merit and disregarded them.

- Robert Priddy personally contacted Wordpress and filed copyright complaints about the publication of his LSD-induced hallucinations and a story about his younger years. Since Wordpress is a moderated free blog, they asked that the articles be deleted, which was done.
