Sathya Sai Baba 10 Feb 2002
A MAJOR Internet publication was posted by Robert Priddy. The Sathya Sai Organisation Examined See also an overview web page with links to exposures of the Sathya Sai Organisation and the Sathya Sai Central Trust
On the Home Page, the subtitles are given as: A broad critical sociological perspective of the SSO and issues about it, with extensive documentation. An inside view of the organisation's aims and common practices.
The thorough, impartial and scholarly nature of this important and highly original 50-page document (which includes an impressive amount of background information) is reflected more accurately in its real title and sub-title at the beginning of the study itself: On the International Sathya Sai Organisation. A participant observational analysis of its structures, management and functions.
Robert Priddy, a retired University teacher of sociology and philosophy is already known as a serious writer about Sathya Sai Baba. In addition, in this study he is able to offer a great deal of inside information and documentation concerning the Organisation and its hierarchy because of his diligent participation over many years as a high office-bearer within the Organisation.
The study will be widely read with intense interest and keen attention by people on both "sides" of the current strong debate about Sathya Sai Baba and his organisation, as well as by many others who are not on either "side." On this already informative website about Sathya Sai Baba, which Robert Priddy set up a few years ago, devotees and others have been able to consult very detailed information about Sai Baba, including the extremely painstaking and valuable INDEX to the first 30 Volumes of Sathys Sai Speaks.
