Dear sisters and brothers,

Aum Sri Sai Ram!

This is a public declaration by interested Sathya Sai devotees and NOT a petition to any government authorities. We request Sathya Sai devotees worldwide, including alumni, former staff and current staff of Sathya Sai educational institutions, who agree with the views expressed in this declaration, to publicly sign this declaration/petition as a public stand taken by hopefully many Sathya Sai devotees worldwide on Madhusudan Rao Naidu spiritual fraud.

Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba of Puttaparthi and Prasanthi Nilayam ashram, is our beloved and revered Gurudev (spiritual master) and Lord. Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba gave up His physical body in April 2011.

We condemn the outrageously false claim of Madhusudan Rao Naidu made publicly from May 2014 onwards, that he is able to see and interact with a so-called subtle body of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba based in Muddenahalli, Karnataka, but which so-called subtle body, for all practical purposes, is not seen by anybody else. We also condemn the outrageously false claim of Madhusudan Rao Naidu that Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba's so-called subtle spirit enters into his body, and Madhusudan Rao Naidu's further claim, outrageously false again, that he (then) becomes Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba.

While in His physical body, Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba has said publicly on many occasions that He communicates directly with His devotees and does not ever use intermediaries and mediums (or communicators). Please visit for some examples of such public quotes of Bhagavan. After Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba's Mahasamadhi in April 2011, Madhusudan Rao Naidu is misguiding thousands of Sathya Sai devotees across the world, including some school students in Karnataka, India with the above mentioned outrageously false claims of his. We condemn Madhusudan Rao Naidu for this misguidance he is doing using the HOLY NAME of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba.

We condemn the dilution and distortion of the legacy and memories of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba that Madhusudan Rao Naidu is doing.

We view the above mentioned actions of Madhusudan Rao Naidu as spiritually fraudulent and condemn Madhusudan Rao Naidu as a spiritual fraud.
