[Totally ignoring any possibility of truth in the allegations against Sai Baba and even official charges that have been filed, the Prime Minister and other governmental authorities of India vouch for the guru in a document that, according to what Dr. Michael Goldstein said, when he read a few lines of it to a crowd of 1500 people in an open meeting at a hall in Argentina on October 20, 2001, is to be signed by the President of El Salvador, the President of Guatemala and the former vice-President of the United States Al Gore.]


See the investigation under the Right to Information legislation by Basava Premanand into whether the Indian Prime Minister Vajpayee and co. had made any investigations prior to their whitewash of Sathya Sai Baba, and the revealing result.





            We are deeply pained and anguished by the wild reckless and concocted allegations made by certain vested interests and people against Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. We would normally expect that responsible media would ascertain the true facts before printing such calumny – especially when the person is revered globally as an embodiment of love and selfless service to humanity. Since this professional ethic has not been observed by a section of the media, we have elected to go public with this sign statement.


            We are among several million people in the world who regard Sri Sathya Sai Baba as a great spiritual master and teacher. We come from different nationalities and religions and greatly admire the fact that Sathya Sai Baba asks us to become a true follower of our chosen path. His is a message of truth, right conduct, love, peace and non-violence.  He always emphasizes that these universal values belong to all faiths and religious traditions.


            Sri Sathya Sai Baba leads by example. He devotes all his time and energy for the well being of society. People from all walks of life from all parts of the world visit him in Prasanthi Nilayam (Andhra Pradesh, India). He meets then and showers his love and blessings on all those who seek him. He has been the sole inspiration behind some of the most monumental public service projects in recent times. He has set up schools, colleges and universities where the finest quality man-making education is imparted to all at no cost. His educational programme of universal human values is being used by thousands of educational institutions all over the world. He has set up hospitals where complex surgical interventions are performed everyday without any cost to the patients. He has set up a mammoth clean drinking water network in drought–prone areas. Indeed the list of activities and projects inspired by him continuous to grow with new projects being undertaken in all parts of the world.


            We have had the privilege of meeting Sri Sathya Sai Baba many times and seeing him engage ceaselessly in community service projects.


            We unequivocally condemn the baseless and malicious allegations being hurled upon Sathya Sai Baba in certain quarters. Great men have often faced slander in their lives. Such pitiful efforts neither diminish their glory nor slow down their resolve to achieve their mission.


            May God give good sense to all who create these scurrilous stories and wisdom to all others not to pay any heed to them.
