Wow. Quite a site -- and most of it consisting of recent testimony from
men who were sexually abused in various ways by Sai Baba and/or who saw
him faking his miracles with sleight of hand tricks. The Swedish branch
of the Sai Baba organization just voluntarily disbanded due to the
members' horror over his sexual predations. A Sweidish film star, an
Indian doctor and others testify that Sai Baba sexually molested them.
Scotland Yard is investigating his ashram. Etc. It's a grim story,
reminiscent of the revelations concerning Muktananda, except that
Muktananda sexually exploited young girls, not boys, and he didn't have
nearly as many followers as Sai Baba.

The ehck with his "image makers" -- according to one testimony archived
at the web site, an Indian doctor asked Sai Baba why he had anally
sodomized an 8 year old boy when he could have sex with asult males --
including the doctor himself -- any time and Sai Baba's answer was 

"Don't bargain with God!"

This is a good point, Suze. The chakra system oredates Sathya Sai Baba
by millennia.
