Humanity in Unity (HIU)? Sai Baba’s disciple….Sai Maa

We would welcome feedback concerning Sai Maa and her organisation. It is our intention to add new material once we have had time to process it.

A relation of mine is involved with an organisation called Humanity in Unity (HIU), led by a charismatic female leader currently known as Sai Maa. Sai Maa is a disciple of the infamous Sai Baba, and often refers to him as her mentor.

My relation has visited the US to attend “courses” run by this woman. I know these courses are very expensive, and that substantial sums have also been given to a “trust” for Sai Maa’s “health and well-being”. My relation has recently began discussing the sale of property he owns, on various pretexts. Over the past year, my relation has begun associating more and more with people associated with this organisation. Over time, they have taken up more of his time, to the point it is difficult to meet him on his own, i.e. he is almost always in their company. This has been concurrent with a gradual lessening of time spent between my relation and his friends and family. I am deeply worried about him. He tends to be gullible and naive, and is easily led. If anyone has information on this organisation or people associated with it, I would be grateful to hear it.

  1. My wife was always interested in Eastern mysticism and she fell into the cult’s clutches at a spiritualist Weekend.
    I have lost my wife to Humanity in Unity (HIU) in 2015. Indian spiritual teacher, Her Holiness Sai Maa Lakshmi Devi who is teaching that the Earth is about to ascend into a new and higher dimension, and those who are spiritually prepared for the change will be moving with it.
    Lets not forget she is a disciple of Sathya Sai Baba.

  2. Dialogue ireland true I’m not an eye witness, I’m specking for the people that are preparing to come forward but you are correct the proper language for this is “alleged sexual assault charges etc”
    I will let the two witnesses speak for them self.
    My text is updated to a more appropriate expression.
    My apologies.

    Nancy & Diana yes you are correct a site for all of this needs to be started. This is one large organization which has extorted millions from innocent people with Deception just to lace Sai Maa with very expensive clothes, expensive organic food, first class plain tickets, hotels, cars and yes, very expensive properties she owns. Sai Maa wants to dupe as many people as possible and take your money !!!! And YES she does encourage people to leave their families and Loved Ones !!!!!

    There are alleged sexual assault charges at Sai Maa camp. There is also a person that works within Sai Maa who can admit there was psychological and emotional abuse going in this organization. No belief system, religious or otherwise, should have the opportunity to abuse anyone !!! It is unbelievably ignorant and dangerous to allow sexual predators to abuse under the guise of religious beliefs!!!

    Its Shameful but Sai Maa has destroyed so so so many peoples lives and not a hell of a lot has been done to clamp down on this. These are not “allegations” these are true stories from people that were with Sai Maa and experienced abuse and trauma from her and her camp .

    Her teachings are not served to make people more loving, compassionate, and joyful. You don’t need anyone to lead you to joyful, fulfilling life. This is not a path of truly knowing yourself and creating life of your dreams. this is a life of creating someone else’s. And that person is Sai Maa, Simply put ! So many people that have friends that work within Sai Maa are pissed off with how there friends have developed, defending her community saying that they are all so cool and kind when clearly they are NOT! Only those who have never been exposed to other Self Development teachings can buy into what she teaches. But it is truly nothing special.

    Sai Maa always wants you to join their organization and then you have to do all this what they call “SAVA” which is donating your time and working. which is pure free labor. Sai Maa never washes her dishes, never does her own laundry, she has people do this for her because she is “HOLLY” and her body needs to be preserved. She has even had young people touch her breast to confirm that she is ageless, to look at her naked body and to tell her face to face that she is beautiful and that she doesn’t look her age !!!! How INSANE is that ???? That just makes me sick !!!!

    The other problem about Sai Maa is her swami, “Swami Parameshwarananda” who is in fact Jewish but has been compared to a nazi at the Crestone Ashram! Devotees paid for two (2) $1 million dollar properties in Crestone, Colorado!! His daughter who also works with Sai Maa and is an obedient devotee disciple who dedicates her life to Sai Maa “Becky Morrison film producer of the Light” Swami Parameshwarananda went after people, with threats of calling the sheriff, if they did not fall in line with his myopic dictates. He was more worried about getting POA approval for more beds than being a decent human being — which means he was status hungry. Again Greed! Why Sai Maa chose a male instead of a female as resident swami for the ashram, when she endorses “Feminine Energy” as the “NEW WAY” is beyond me !?????

    There are more and more leaks coming out of Sai Maa Camp none of these people are deeply fulfilled. they “support” each other through “painful transformational times” but they are starting to see that their actual pain is caused by following and living for somebody else. And there is always this “do as maa says, maa said, and my teaches and maa told me”. Which is total trash!! There are people getting married to completely wrong people because SAI MAA recommended this person who she feels is enlightened or worthy of being with. Good luck with that !

    SAI MA is very money hungry just like that pedophile Sai Baba was.
    STAY AWAY FROM THIS CULT PEOPLE!!

    This is called hearsay or third party. You are not an eye witness. So a more appropriate expression there are alleged sexual assault charges etc.

    ,

    there are a two eye witness ready to admit its long history of abuses – sexual, psychological and emotional abuse about this kind of activity.

There must be some Organization that can take action and investigate them from the inside to see all the illegal things going on within and shut them Down. She makes millions and lives a Lavash Life with homes everywhere and many sports cars, I sure there must be issues within.

    All the people on this forum need to ban together and come out of hiding and talk more loudly about your issues and problems with Sai Maa and her CULT Organization !!!! COME OUT PEOPLE !! Now is the time !!!!!

  5. Why has no one set up a website or a blog to consolidate people’s stories, concerns and annoyances about Sai Maa and her Cult Organization ?

    It could be a simple and elegant response to the clear distaste so many harbor towards this cult leader.
    I imagine the wisest path would be for this site to be moderated slightly, so thoughtful and meaningful complaints or positive experiences and defenses (of course this is fine and welcomed!) would be posted – no inappropriate language or false accusations.

  6. Hello Kathryn Johnson

    Yes Finally someone talks the truth about Sai Maa. . . I’m one of them in addition to 15 other people I know that will be talking more about this horrible woman and her Cult Organization run by her disciples. Peter Glaser you are correct the Sai Maa Organization is a sinister is a Cult ! My Ex boyfriend is a member of Sai Maa and he is young not like the older members that are clearly insane once you meet them. We were together for four year and were very seriously in Love but then Sai Maa destroyed everything we built, our home our future everything lost. He spent thousands of dollars on Sai Maa’s retreats. The foundation and communication was lost forever. I’m here to tell everyone that Sai Maa is a horrible woman and how this organization works inside.

    Each of its members are brainwashed into believing this woman is there savior and can only help them with what ever issues they may have. Nothing and I mean NOTHING gets in the way of there devotion to Sai Maa, you can ask them to pull back and take a break from Sai Maa and the answer will always be the same they are not going to turn there backs on the world of energy and the spirit of Sai Maa. Sai Maa is there Core, it is who they know themselves to be. They follow her around the world from country to country and travel for her. They spend little time with the ones they love the most because they are on conference calls all the time and traveling for her.It is very very Creepy. The things my ex boyfriend told me was very creepy and sad at the same time.

    She is more real to each member than there own body, or the clothing on there backs or even there own Personality!!!! They can not be realistically be in a relationship with someone who does not accept, embrace or rejoice in the devotion of Love to Sai Maa. It’s not possible for them ! Like Robots they are Wired to the Core. It’s a HUGE disconnect for them if the other person is not into Sai Maa in some way. There is absolutely no future with any of the members of Sai Maa if you not willing to go down that road, if you are not aligned internally & spiritually. THIS IS A FACT!!! Doesn’t get clearer than that for them. They are Sick twisted Brainwashed people. For them it’s very simple, “Everything is Maa”. Which is on a pure level is SICK !!! All the disciple of Sai Maa practice like this all the time without fail. I’m pretty sure if they were instructed to jump off a bridge some of them would do it.

    They are poisoned from the inside, on the outside they show lots of love and seem to be amazing bright eyed people full of energy also trying hard to be someone that they really are not. But inside they are wired to serve and do all that Sai Maa ask of them. The Brain washing and conditioning goes very deep en-fact there is a lot of open touching and feeling amongst all the members to share themselves. At this level the way Sai Maa works it may as well be Rape, because it is exactly that. She is bleeding her disciples dry and alienating them from their families.

    If you are in contact with any of these members I suggest you be careful or even in a relationship, they will try hard to get you to drink the Cool-aid of Sai Maa, not right away but when an opportunity comes they will get you to meet Sai Maa and when they do she will do her best to get to join there group and participate in some way shape or form. It is about energy but the energy put out there is negative, this is a very sinister cult and not healing or clearing blockage at all. The only way to be in a relationship with any member of Sai Maa is that you have to also be apart of Sai Maa, this is how it works, and this is how they want it to work. Each member is an introvert and not sure of who they really are, they want to be apart of a group but they just don’t fit in at all, and its because of Sai Maa and the way she has them conditioned and brainwashed. Totally warped around her finger. And yes they all say on the phone a code to each other, they are instructed to say “Om Jai Jai Sai Maa” all the time when greeting each other, my ex boyfriend did it all the time without fail, it made me sick to hear him say this all the time even in front of our friends and family.

    Also do remember this is a money machine, each person that meets Sai Maa pays up to $2,000 to $4,000 just to vist and see her with hotel and flight. Each Person!!! Thats a lot on money & a lot luxury for Sai Maa with all her homes scattered around the country and cars and Slaves! Each member receives an allowance of money this is very true. Sai Maa’s need for money is huge.

    Sai Maa is NOT LOVE

    Sai Maa is a FRAUD of LOVE

    She is dangerous especially to Young People. They want new Young people to join there organization and are working hard to get new members to join. They are working on new steps including new video’s to get new and younger members. It’s time people joined together and put a stop to this Cult Organization for good and debunk her to all the world. I can tell you that most of the members are not very smart they are like children playing with candy, the main person to take down is Sai Maa. Cut the head off the snake and the rest will fall. The time is now to strike . People in India know she is a Fake. If you show her website to an Indian, he or she will immediately know she is a fake. She is NOT a master she is a FRAUD!!!

    I’m ready to talk more and so are 15 other people I know with stories all to share.
    We need a website for this fro everyone to gather and protest this FRAUD this FAKE this EVIL person that destroys peoples lives.
    Let us Start NOW !!!!!!

  7. Finally…someone said the truth about Sai Maa…she is pure evil! IT is true. When I went to one of her events, she invited me on stage the first night. She turned and said “How are you?” in a masculine manly voice with lots of bad energy coming at me. I was wigged out. I took a deep breath and said..”I’m fine.” The rest of the week, I kept telling everyone that she was evil. I thought I was the one who was crazy. I didn’t understand that I had discernment at that time. I had accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior many years before and apparently he must have still been with me. All my friends in the group acted like I wasn’t saying anything or they told me “It’s your ego.” What a convenient answer. The reality is… Sai Maa is so possessed by demonic spirits that I am not even sure there is much of a human left. And with all of these kinds of people, money is very important to them. Because of what I did with her, I almost died. She is practicing witchcraft and sorcery…. Be careful. Get away from her if you have been involved with her. She also does a lot of mind control.

  8. Peter your 100% correct about Sai Maa and her organization it is a sinister sinister CULT!
    I have taken a course way back and I still have friends that continue to be Devotee members or Slaves to her and they do have a hidden requirement when talking on the phone to each other they must say “Om Jai Jai Sai Maa”. Many people in Florida and Naples that are friends of mine find the entire old show crazy and insane. Its been going on for a while now and quite frankly people are feed up!!!
    They are with out a doubt a Cult and have en fact ruined many friends and people I know, especially young people. The old Hippy people in the group are without a doubt just wacked out of there minds you can see it clearly, but its the young people i feel so sad for, their lives are being wasted working for this woman who is making millions paying them off and brain washing or should I say Mind Fucking them ! To the point where they would even kiss the woman feet !! How do there parents feel about there sons & daughter being exploited like this, there kids look like sad fools worshiping this fake Evil Woman who is appearing like a godly Good Person when she is absolutely not !
    Sai Maa is PURE EVIL plain and simply . She is not spiritual at all !
    She is a FAKE ! She is NOT a Master at all ! In Indian they even Hate her ! She is full of herself and so are all its members ! She is a CROOK in my opinion!
    I agree someone needs to step in and shut them down immediately. The Government or someone needs to step in. I will make sure to pass this on to other channels on the web and many of friends who work in different circles. More people need to know about this !!
    Passing it along!

  9. I can say without a doubt that the Sai Maa Organization is a sinister CULT ! And I stand by that 100%

    This organization is run by Sai Maa who’s has a tons of property in the US, she has been running a Ponzi scheme for years making Millions off the backs of innocent people and getting away with it cheating right under the governments nose when it comes to taxes and money .
    Each person that works for her gets an allowance of money and each person is a disciple of Sai Maa, they do what ever this lady wants and will kiss the floor that her feet walks on, and I mean kiss the floor, they are her humble obedient slaves. They each have a photo of her on there cells phones that comes up every time the phone rings and pray to tons of photos and gifts from this insane sick woman. They believe Sai Maa to be a divine being worthy of worship. Its totally madness !

    Sai Maa with the help of these people have for many years ruined and the lives of tons of people and families that fall for her Ponzi scheme. Its a Cult that splits people up with brain washing and Hitler like disciplinary acts of aggression . There are many disciples from New York, Pennsylvania, Quebec, Florida, etc. All of them are geeky nuts who put on a show all in white to get people in and twist peoples minds that they have huge problems and that Sai Maa can fix there problems quickly.

    One of the main leaders who has been with the organization is “Swami Parameshwarananda” along with other main disciple of Sai Maa “Lucinda Hale Hanover “ “Shree Devi” “Oakley Ogden” “Jonathan Mitchell “ “Lalita Shree Dasi Brahmacharini “ “Anantananda Das Brahmachari” “Doug Fisher” “Reiko Dewey” “Mohan Das Brahmachari” “Dayananda Brahmachari” “Becky Morrison film producer” “Santoshdas Satuababa” “André Mounoussamy Jayendra-Das” “Joe Mitchell” “Laura Fontaine “ “Sheila Furth” “Harry Waranch Lmt” “Nicolas Viennot Sai Maa’s Son” “Jivananda Das Brahmachari” “Carla Sadoff” “Lela Henderson” and the list goes on !

    A good couple I went with to Naples Florida with for the Journey of Profound healing had a horrible experience. It started out interesting but quickly turn very dark. During the session the couple that i went with had hard questions for Sai Maa about there future and things they wanted in life. My friends wife was told by Sai Maa spoke to her privately and said that she felt the man she was with was not right for her and that she should flat out leave him and come and travel with her and the organization and promised her the man of her dreams. My friends wife quickly found this somewhat problematic and told me about it. I know this couple very well and they are both a very loving and caring couple so it seemed strange that Sai Maa would recommend this.

    Her husband told me when he spoke to Sai Maa she seemed to really hate him and even tried to put him in a bad light saying she could see problems for him and that he should accept what difficulties would be coming his way soon. It became clear to all of us that she was clearly trying to divide this beautiful couple. After we did research and ask many friends that went to Sai Maa what was there experience, almost all the people we spoke to found the entire journey and experience horrible and felt they were being sucked into a real Cult where everyone that was a member was watching you constantly and trying hard to brainwash you to spend more money and keep tabs on you everyday.

    These people and Sai Maa are a disease, any life with anyone who is a member of this Cult you are basically signing your name to be in the circle of Sai Maa who will en fact control you and always be in the way of any real good future you think you may have. She will take your life and your children away from you.

    Sai Maa needs to be banned from the country she is a danger to the people – especially easily influenced youth.

    Again the Sai Maa Organization is a sinister CULT!!!

  11. Irony of ironies.
    My concern does not come from no where.
    I lived in a monastery studying under a 100+ year old Zen teacher.
    Never once heard him refer to himself as ‘awake’ or ‘enlightened’.
    Nor was he terribly attached to things.
    Nor did he claim to be God, Christ, Mary Magdalene, or anyone…
    except himself.

    Sai Maa (whom I may have met myself) is not without her faults or HUGE red flags.
    1. Sai Baba’s reputation as a child molester – evidence so substantial it was publicized in the British parliament and BBC.
    2. Money love – which is acknowledged (and evident) to be causing internal unrest in her closest student/lineage-leaders.

    This is not about personal quibbles. Concerns remain, and this is one of the only places where people can be vocal and others be warned. My friends tried to blame me for my sense of uneasiness when I did see her interact with her closest students. “You’re not ready for the light,” they would say. Turns out a google search unearthed pages like this. Thank you HIU. I don’t resonate with everything on the website but I appreciate there being a forum.

  12. In response to your telling me to wake up, I am awake. I became God realized in 2007 after 8 devoted years with a Living Buddha spiritual master from China. And trust me, I paid a lot of money for this priceless experience. I am amused by well meaning friends and relatives, who have absolutely no clue what it means to live in a temple, renounce, retreat, and return — dharma boot camp, I call it — yet tell me who I am, who I am not, blah, blah, blah. I look to Christ — the original rebel — as my mentor, not unrealized souls.

  13. Note: In response to the ‘enlightenment’ frenzied posts. I heard every Buddhist/Eastern teacher I have ever met or read say – “Enlightenment” as an attainment is a Western creation. It is NOT Eastern. There is no ‘moment of enlightment’ as we grandiosely mangle it. Quick sign of a confused spiritual child.
    Every Sai Maa follower I have ever met was a very confused spiritual child.
    To return to the money issue: people pay her the money – to attain something…
    Every ancient religion offers services for free or on sliding scales. They are equal part social welfare agent and spiritual guide.
    Exclusive, stratified cults like Sai Maa’s crumble. Within a single generation.
    Evidence, Lynn Troxel’s words.
    Already she is surrounded – by Lynn, one of her own follower’s admission – manipulative power hungry handlers who taint her dharma and her name for their own gain.

    Healing is paramount for everyone who has felt mistreated or abused.

    No victim too near to the pain need ever step forward – trust time and truth will take care of humanity’s greedy caricatures. This is always true.

  15. Dear Lynn Troxel,
    Thank you for your attempt to defend her.
    It in fact did quite the opposite. Your defense was very telling, in your profound inability to in fact defend her behavior.

    1. “it could have been one of Ma’s handlers, whom I’ve witness be extremely back-stabbing for their own egos.”
    The people I heard of and knew followed her – deludedly – but did succeed in convincing people that she is omniscient and knows everything that happens at JOPH and any other retreat or setting.
    How then, would the inappropriate behavior of her closest followers and monks be possible or permissible?
    Wouldn’t she get rid of them?
    or – wouldn’t she STOP THEM telepathically? (Of course this is crap. The truth is she has no power. She’s a pseudo-powerful cult creature.)

    Especially, with the power she has – the power born of brainwashing. This power makes the “backstabbing handler’s” devious behavior very very dangerous.
    Far more dangerous than their manipulations in a normal situation.
    They claim spiritual superiority and can have a more horrible impact.
    That’s done in Sai Maa’s name. She gives out her name for them to misuse.
    That’s HER karma. She enables them.

    Excuses, excuses.
    Never taking responsibility.

    2. “She unfortunately has a love of money but her spiritual attainment is profound.”
    This has never been combined before in the entire religious canon.
    EVER. Yeshua (Jesus), Guathma (Buddha), the Jewish prophets – think David (who learned many things in his very dramatic life), or Muhammad. OR Pope Francis or the Dalai Llama.
    This is not a coincidence.
    Wake up.
    Money is a false valuation of value.

    She’s a cult leader. The lowest of the low. Deluding people whilst groveling her own psychosis.

Masters as Jesus respect your free will, always, she, she does not. Do not forget that the Source( God) is not overwhelming, it is Love. She imposes her power and my God i would sue her. This is not healing, it is more destructive than anything. She would steal the divinity in you for her purposes. I don’t read Bible, but even Jesus said, beware of false Masters who would take posession of your soul… so Beware!

  17. I seriously doubt Ma would have done this as heavy karma is involved and she is totally aware of karmic consequences. Are you sure your friends weren’t being targeted already?? – a very sadistic covert human rights violation, like the bullying of young high school students — on steroids — difficult to prove, causing suicides and murders and ignored by teachers, parents, etc., so they themselves don’t become a target. Look up “organized stalking” — it could have been one of Ma’s handlers, whom I’ve witness be extremely back-stabbing for their own egos.
    Ma was my first guru in Los Angeles in the early ’90s. I was with her when she had only 15 devotees. She is a very highly evolved spiritual master. She unfortunately has a love of money but her spiritual attainment is profound. You can blame her handlers, whom I’ve personally witness push her for more, more, more $$ when she wanted to do workshops, healings, etc. for free. Anyone who attains a high degree of transcendental states does not wish to be married or have families if it means dragging the aspiring spiritual seeker back into a strictly mundane world– that is why most yogis and monks live as single people and often away from society. It’s very difficult for a novice devotee to sort everything out in their own minds. I wish peace to all who are suffering now.

They were ostracized and manipulated. Stay away. It is only a way for them to control or to isolate and black mail. They still shudder wondering if she will blackmail them in the future.

  22. I did go to JOPH – Journey of Profound Healing. It was very psychologically violent. The claim was she was pulling out the chords of our karma. We were no longer subject to psychological trauma from the past or neurological/psychological nuances. She continually placed the blame for people’s problems on their parents. There was an intense release at the end; more from the yelling finally ending in truth. She claimed it was her great power. The program actually involved sleep deprivation as everyone searched for the seed of their “problem.” Food intake cut back and hours spent observing or participating in play-presentations of people’s life traumas. This is a real therapy developed in Europe in the 60’s by a dancer. No mention of his contribution.
    Naturally there will be endorphin highs at the end of such a thing. They are not indicative anything spiritual; but just human brains doing what human brains do in high stress situations. I could see many fellow members ensnared in her claims; I was for a bit, too.
    It’s wild… how we’ll fall for this stuff. I regret meeting the ‘enlightened’ friends; who are really not role models in life. Read: unemployed, under-employed, struggling financially, reading into every event that happens, claiming a higher level of consciousness in relationship strains, contacting intuitives at any moment of crisis or change, drawing tarot cards, hearing voices, and believing that their work, uniquely theirs, or their presence is rising up humanity’s level of consciousness. It almost felt like they had recreated an Indian caste system in their own minds.
    Note: my family; full of scientists and mathematicians picked up her and her successor’s books at my request and couldn’t finish because it’s hack science. They were too polite to tell me at the time. Now we laugh about it; but I shudder at the thought of the money I did spend for the retreat (several thousand) and the shocking time it took to pull out of the strange beliefs.
    Stay far away.

  23. She seems very impressive and all-knowing if you are in a needy place when you meet her. Sometimes people are. A more stable, well-versed human would listen respectfully, chuckle, ponder a few irrational statements, and leave at the end of the evening having experienced an interesting sub-sect of New Age believers. The nuttiness is quite apparent.
    I’m not sure how bad it gets in the inner circles, but it is apparent that there are those circles. My friends were in the slightly inner circles and they believed in a number of hypnosis paths, including MSIA and ACIM.

She charged an absolute fortune for a 3 day intensive (Belgium), which I attended, this not including room nor board. And in truth, something strange about the setup from the start. I personally know a number of Maa lovers and most of them are either independently wealthy or spend whatever they have to follow her around from country to country., now there’s regular intensives in Florida, where she has purchased a home. Where’s the humility?

  32. They work with hypnosis, from the first Momenmt. If you do not know, you have no chance to defend yourself and walk into the trap.
    There are two ways into the subconscious of a people, with a psychoanalysis or with hypnosis. The Eastern gurus are the oldest hypnotists in the world and dominate it in an unique way. They do not need words, no hypnoptic setting, they only need people whom they regard as material. There is only one way to protect yourself, stay away, stay far, far away.

    Here is a book, the first book I have found that calls it what it is “Hindu Hypnosis”. Unfortunately this book is in German language.

    “Hindu Hypnosis” – “The Non-Verbal Factor and the Will of Hypnosis” . For the prospective buyer, it can be found at “amazon”.

    Slowly their practices come into the light. I still had some aha experiences, but even this book is just the tip of the iceberg. This author teaches these methods, so take good care of yourself which seminars you visit………I think this kind of hypnosis will be one of the greatests problems in the next decades.

Anyway went to iNDA to meet her and then thats when I saw a very different woman.. I have the balls to say she was a total ducking hitch,, a bit like cruella!! Nobody listens to me I have all these lessons teachings and people don’t get it ‘ that was some of the stuff she was saying.. then went onto baba astral where I was drained and very sick.. took some vibrational meds.. but at the time I felt I was healing probably yea probably delhi belly.. after that a year or two I met her in Eire.. and just didn’t get it . I met her at the door and she was oh you beautiful I love you… I didn’t get an authentic vibe from this woman and stopped practicing diksha as I felt calling evoking her name before you lay your hands upon someone you are energetically making her more powerful as with anything, good or bad.. so I can saw I was a said maa head.. and left with my head intact.

When you see someone with homes around the world and an entourage but no formal degrees, it is highly suspect. The money comes from somewhere. My mother is continually drawn in by financial predators. I called the sales person for the condo complex. He said they are legally bound to allow a fox to move in with a chicken coop because they cannot discriminate. We have Sai Maa living amongst a bunch of sick, vulnerable seniors. Really sad.

  61. I was reading all the posts and I was thinking that all this arguing was very personal and not objective at all. People who hate Sai Maa are generally people who got left by their wife or husband. You know what ? I understand it is painful, but divorces happen. Separation happen sometimes even when you are not following a guru. People make choices and paths change as life changes. I personnally saw Sai Maa a couple of times on free events and I appreciated very much her teachings. No money spent at all, I did not feel any pressure to follow anything and I did not leave any member of my family.
    So to me, all of this is a matter of personal experience. I don’t believe there is wrong or right. Sometimes we need to accept that a relationship is over because the individuals became different and chose different paths. That does not mean that someone is on the good path and the other one on the bad one.

    From personal experience I would say it is the effects of hidden occult practices of the guru/practitioner caused by manipulating a person on an energy level; it is not usually visually observable by the recipient. Questions, when asked, are rarely answered.

    Whether confrontational or not towards the practitioner, it is usually the case that people suffer the consequences of the ‘treatment’/’healing’ with no way of proving what had happened or that the effects were brought about by deliberate interference and, in some cases, to cause deliberate harm.

At first, I thought all was good with her but then she proceed to tell us Sathya Sai Baba had been her Guru and that she had received a blessing from him to go on her own, and when she was confronted by people about all the allegation about Baba, she defended him, saying those were only rumors. At that time, I felt in my gut something was wrong but I did stay there for the weekend. We were told that night, that Maa would perform healing on us, and we had to registered for this, and it was over $100, I did it and frankly, after that I did not sleep all night, felt so strange and the next day, when she gave the blessings, I went straight to her and looked her in the eyes and just said :Namasté. after that I did some Seva and noticed how rude she was with people and something inside of me felt as if I had to confront her, so when she got into the room for doing more healing, everyone one was bowing at her and I looked straight at her and sent her a clear message through my eyes, that in no way, I believed she was more THAN anyone of us. I did not say a word and she never nay of my questions the day after that and each time I tried to communicate with her, I never got any reply from her…all I got from this, is that I got sick, my daughter got sick as well as my son. I went back three months later, to notice the same game….It got me sick to my stomach to see how manipulative this organization is and since then, I have noticed that some more family members have joined her and they got sick as well, some of them spent thousands and thousand of dollars to “heal” and be “awakened” when all you have to do is connect with your heart and follow your own gut intuition and inner voice!

  71. I used to believe in Sai Maa, but something always bothered me about her. I only went to one event and because it was my first one, I got the cheap price of just $850 plus hotel and airfare. She invited me on stage the very first night. And when she talked to me, I felt like she was pulling or sucking something out of my third eye…and then I felt kind of dizzy. I felt like she took my energy or my power, I am not really sure. After that, I freaked out. The rest of the week I kept hearing my mind says she is evil, she is the devil. And she seemed angry whenever she saw me. And since I have left her organization, I have felt much better about myself and my ability to create the life I want. I think she just wants to take people´s energy and make them weaker. She seems to have some sort of spiritual powers doing things with energy, but I now realize that this does not mean she is kind or living from her heart. I think she is selfish, money hungry, and totally an energy vampire. I am so glad to see this website and know that I am no longer alone. When I explained to other HIU members that I felt that she had taken my energy out of my third eye, they told me that it was just my ego. Sai Maa likes to tell people that when a person gets close to enlightenment, their ego will sometimes go crazy and then they will deny Sai Maa, like Peter did with Jesus. To me, she is like politician…nothing is real. I also think people need to remember she was a therapist for many years before becoming a Guru. How do we know she is a real guru? I have never seen any pictures of her and Sai Baba. And the last thing I will say is, If she were so enlightened, why did she recommend that her followers get healings from Tilak. I am very sensitive to energy and now I can feel when a person is not in integrity… how could she have not known that Tilak had some strange sexual inappropriate tendencies? I didn´t like his picture when I saw it and I could feel that there was something slimy about him.
    The other thing I think Sai Maa does to people, is make them question their own intuition. I often felt like I was crazy when I was in her organization. After my experience with her, I will never have a guru nor a religion again. I do not need any of those to feel connected to source. I wish human beings would stop needing a God to follow.

After selling her business and a house, she collected all the money and donated to Sai-Maa… and of course “Her Holiness” took it…. This is what I call brainwashing and stealing!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m in the community and it has changed my life for the better in more ways than I even knew possible. I didn’t enter as someone with “problems” – I don’t do drugs, I wasn’t out searching for something – I entered as an intrigued, open-minded individual. Today, I am still an intrigued, open-minded individual with a community of friends from all over the world whom I love dearly. Maa’s teachings have only served to make me more loving, compassionate, and joyful. I absolutely adore my family – despite their open skepticism and distrust in Maa. We actually joke about it being a cult. The thing that makes it NOT a cult to me is that no one says “you should avoid all the people you know who aren’t a part of this” or “you must do this and that to be special”. They say “do what you want, act out of love, be mindful and aware of yourself, and know that no matter what Maa loves you”

    When it comes to the money stuff, it’s not that much in the grand scheme of things. I look at other stuff I could spend money on that would equal the cost of events, and typically it breaks down to “i could spend this on eating at a restaurant and a new pair of expensive jeans, or I could go hang out and meditate with some of my favorite people and just be joyous”. It’s all about choices.

  82. Re: letter posted in December 2009

    I have read the letter posted to start this blog and I’m wondering if anything has changed with your relative? It can be very disheartening when very little happens to put a stop to the hold they have over people and theft of everything they own.

    Is he still a member of the Sai Maa?

  83. Cult leaders change their image and that of the group as needed to avoid prosecution and litigation, to increase income, and to recruit a range of members. Cult leaders have an innate ability to attract followers who have the skills and connections that the leaders lack. The longevity of the group is dependent on the willingness of leadership to adapt as needed and preserve the group. Frequently, when illegal or immoral activities are exposed to the public, the cult leader will relocate, sometimes taking followers with her. She will keep a low profile, only to resurface later with a new name, a new front group, and perhaps a new twist on the scam.

  85. I have come to the conclusion that those who attract people to religions that involve relaxation/meditations are aware of how powerful suggestions are while they are in the state of receiving the teachings from their ‘guru’. The words ‘energy vampire’ is an accurate description of what happens. The same kind of phenomena takes place no matter what the group is called and it is usually the leader or guru who benefits the most.

    The more educated we are on this type of phenomena the better choices we’ll make and put the ‘money sucking manipulator’ out of business.

  86. Sai Maa wants to dupe as many people as possible and take your money. How do well-educated, professional people fall for that kind of guru-worship? Someone should do a sociological study of the phenomenon regarding what makes such people lose their otherwise rational senses. It is curious that so many gurus, cults and New Age scams use the idea of “unity” or the “oneness of humanity” and so on to promote their messages. Lets not forget she is a disciple of Sathya Sai Baba.

  87. Hello!

    I will remain anonymous for I have a very close friend in the organization maa runs and I don’t want to make her feel uncomfortable, because I know that if someone from HIU sees my post here they’ll tell my friend and they will go on trying to defend sai maa.

    I’ll start with Zhide’s post: “Most gurus leave their families, as did Buddha, because the spiritual calling is much stronger than the 3-dimensional realm.”

    First of all, you don’t have to leave your family to follow your spiritual calling. In fact following a guru doesn’t mean at all you are following your spiritual calling. Eating vegetarian and meditating does not mean you are following your true nature, sometimes it is actually detrimental.
    3-dimensional realm is called real life. and if you get a handle on that, instead of trying to escape it through reading lots of metaphysical stuff and meditating in groups , which for years may look like you are developing, but in reality you have nothing to show for it, because all of your money is going to your guru and her houses and seminars, and you meditate and eat exactly what she says you should, but you don’t experiment with your own desires. You spend a lot of time fitting yourself in “her” framework. this is not a path of truly knowing yourself and creating life of your dreams. this is a life of creating someone else’s. Simply put – you don’t need anyone to lead you to joyful, fulfilling life. I have found that doing what I want and putting all of the efforts into that and making things happen in MY life is the most fulfilling thing. And from this place I can help others. But never would I help sai ma. I am deeply saddened by how after so many years my friend is not developing however, defending her community saying that they are all so cool and kind, but I have been to their meetings, all the talk about is ma, and what she teaches, which is not at all anything astounding. you can read what she talks about on the internet and in any metaphysical book. She doesn’t teach anything so special or new. Only those who have never been exposed to other Self Development teachings can buy into what she teaches. But it is truly nothing special.
    And ye, she does encourage people to leave their families. Why? Because than they are more devoted to her and are less prone to be talked out of giving her everything they have. and then she also teaches that if you have mixed or negative feelings towards your guru that is your own negativity and it is an illusion.

    “Those who reach high levels of consciousness would not take a million dollars in place of their spiritual experiences — we are here to regain our spiritual heart-minds, not pursue material possessions. ”

    Dear, money is wonderful when used right. I can bet that you are yourself not very wealthy, because then you would know that personal prosperity and simply being able to get yourself a comfortable living IS a part of your fulfilling spiritual existence. We are not here to just meditate, ok, after you are all healed and feel great – then what? then you use it to create a great life for yourself! you own business, travel the world, buy your family cool stuff, help those in need, do WHATEVER you want. not sit and meditate for the rest of your life. unless that is the only thin you want to do. I don’t. in fact I became happier and more transformed after I stopped practicing spirituality as much as I did before and reading about it and started to actually DO something to create the life I wanted for myself and investing every penny and minute of my day into me.
    I feel much more spiritual now and connected. IN fact teaching that helped me the most were stating “visualize 5 min a day and then TAKE ACTION” spending a bunch of money on sai ma and wasting your time on so much meditation IMHO is taking time away from yourself. and that is what happened to my friends. She doesn’t date, she feels like she will never be good enough (of course if you compare yourself to this guru magician of emerald city, you will never feel good enough) and she lives a very plain life like all of the HIU people.

    For all this years my friend has been with sai ma, has she ever called her for her birthday? has she ever asked her if she needs any help? NO! and she knows her in person.

    sai ma always wants you to join their organization and then you have to do all this what they call “sava” which is donating your time and working. which is pure free labor. sai ma never washes her dishes, never does her own laundry, she has people do this for her because she is “HOLLY” and her body needs to be preserved. that just makes me sick. Her own FUND TO PRESERVE HER BODY? what does that mean? very expensive clothes, expensive organic food, first class plain tickets, hotels and yes, very expensive properties she owns. When she doesn’t do ANYTHING. Only blesses people. ok.

    “but you can blame the stupid accountants and those in charge of her personal affairs on that one. The other problem was her swami, Para-whoever Bramacharya who was a nazi at the Crestone ashram. He went after people, with threats of calling the sheriff, if they did not fall in line with his myopic dictates. He was more worried about getting POA approval for more beds than being a decent human being — which means he was status hungry. Why Sai Maa chose a male instead of a female as resident swami for the ashram, when she endorsed feminine energy as the “new way” is beyond me”

    sai ma is very well aware of what goes on in her organization and that some of those people are not very happy. of course! if you really loved and respected yourself you would dedicate your life to your self. and what YOU want to do and your own gifts. not a guru and those people are telling themselves that serving maa is their life’s purpose. I don’t believe in that. I just can’t. how? do you not have your own lives to create?

    Overall hanging out with HIU people I have noticed that none of these people are deeply fulfilled. they “support” each other through “painful transformational times” but they don’t see that their actual pain is caused by following and living for somebody else. And there is always this “do as maa says, maa said, and my teaches and maa told me”. I have seen people getting married to completely wrong people because she recommended. or people just being hypnotized into devoting themselves to her sacrificing their own happiness. and telling themselves that they are unhappy because they are not doing it right according to maa’s teachings. She is not holly at all. she needs to come down to Earth. she is an energy vampire and a money sucking manipulator. and quite delusional as well.
    There are much better teachers out there who are much more down to earth and more approachable, less expensive and truly helpful.
    She is not at all anything special. In fact we all are. ok?

  88. Said Maa takes whatever she wants. Some of her students are being sued because of her stealing funds from the organization. No level of involvement is worth all of her problems. Sai Maa has bouts of radically unskilled behavior. No one ever knows when it will hit. Stay clear of her and her deluded entourage.

  89. Sai Maa was my first spiritual teacher, whom I met in Los Angeles around 1993. She is indeed enlightened and a bonafide guru. She is one of the rare female spiritual leaders acknowledged in India, as you can see by her current Kumbha Mela flyer. She has also been endowed with “Her Holiness” title by the Dalai Lama, which is a very rare occurrence as well. Most gurus leave their families, as did Buddha, because the spiritual calling is much stronger than the 3-dimensional realm. Those who reach high levels of consciousness would not take a million dollars in place of their spiritual experiences — we are here to regain our spiritual heart-minds, not pursue material possessions. I had a problem with her love of money — but to her credit, she admits openly that she loves money. Devotees paid for two (2) $1 million dollar properties in Crestone, Colorado — which is why her workshops became so expensive — but you can blame the stupid accountants and those in charge of her personal affairs on that one. The other problem was her swami, Para-whoever Bramacharya who was a nazi at the Crestone ashram. He went after people, with threats of calling the sheriff, if they did not fall in line with his myopic dictates. He was more worried about getting POA approval for more beds than being a decent human being — which means he was status hungry. Why Sai Maa chose a male instead of a female as resident swami for the ashram, when she endorsed feminine energy as the “new way” is beyond me. Sai Maa is one of the only gurus I’ve known who combines Western Ascended Masters teachings with ancient Hindu tradition. And I’ve witnessed participants become enlightened at every retreat I attended with Sai Maa. She is real but definitely needs to be more humble, in my opinion — my beloved Buddhist rinpoche lived in a beat-up old mobile home and drove an old Toyota — and gave us everything we needed to become enlightened. Sai Maa cleverly doesn’t give tools to devotees to work with to become enlightened in her absence, while she is away on tour. As with most foreign gurus, they take our money back to their own countries and leave us hanging until they come back. Get what you can out of her astounding spiritual presence and be prudent with your money !!

  90. My husband left me also after becoming involved with HIU, he told me that although we were happily married it was his dharma to follow this path that was revealed to him through deep meditation guided by Sai Maa. It is my understanding that Sai Maa left her husband and children to follow her guru as well. How sad that these individuals seek more to life rather than realize that life IS the path.

  92. Sai ma is a teacher of wisdom like the dalai Lama
    She is a great healer too, I’ve gotten the discshaw healing from one of her pupils. most of the courses are how to heal your life kind of things. If you think sai ma is a cult, then every healer or the dalai lama is a cult. she doesn’t ask to be led blindly, its a persons choice, i’ve never heard her ask for money, people give it out of choice because she’s helped them. I’ve seen the other cults on TV and heard of sexual abuse, and all sorts of other nasty things. Sai ma is a spiritualist at best, hindu mainly.she doesn’t sell herself as a god so cult would not be the word. I know someone on the association and they mostly have their own jobs and help out sai ma by paying for her hotel when she comes here. The courses are a bit pricey, but it’s such a nice talk she does I think it’s worth it. Shes like the Female dalai lama. She doesn’t suck you into something, she gives you wisdom and thats it.

  93. I have just been left by my husband so he can immerse himself in her followings and teachings…..so it is a most confusing time. He has been telling me that being with her is “finding God” and that he now “knows his path” – he is staying in Colorado to be a part of this community. I don’t know what to make of it but am very disheartened to know that any spiritual leader may endorse or accept a man’s total abandonment of responsibility and commitments he made to a wife and kids.

  94. It is interesting that you came up with this is it not?
    Further development took place in 2001, when Dialogue Ireland, though continuing to be supported by the churches, became an independent Trust, thus giving it greater freedom in carrying out its mission. Mike Garde is now the Director of Dialogue Ireland and is supported by a strong executive committee. *So DI Ireland will work with those from other creeds like Judaism, Hinduism, Islam or Buddhism which reject cultist tendencies. Also we are happy to cooperate with those who reject religion – sceptics, agnostics and atheists who share a common view of cultism. Freedom of the mind is our common platform for cooperation and we do not see this work as an opportunity to promote our particular faith position.

  96. I wish to share with you that I have been very blessed by knowing Sai Maa. She is pure light and love of the divine mother. Maa has assisted me through many difficult soul challenges. When a person gets involved with a powerful healer it is up to the individual how they respond. Maa does not encourage devotees. She wishes to create Masters so they are their own guru.
