Given below is the declaration of Ms. Phyllis Krystal on her website, http://www.phylliskrystal.com/472.html, entry dated August 29th 2015 (currently at the top of her site):
I, Phyllis Krystal declare from this day forward to have nothing to do with Madhusudan from Mudhanahalli.
My difficult life situation, and weakened physical condition, unfortunately let me drift from my inner contact with Baba, my own HiC [Ravi: (seems to be) High Consciousness]. I started to rely on this outer source.
I wish to return wholeheartedly to what Swami taught us over and over again, to seek Him [Ravi: Bhagavan] in our heart instead of somewhere outside. Which, also corresponds with the Method that was given to me so many years ago.
I therefore want to cancel the planned visit of Madhusudan and his group this weekend, including any further future visits.

Ravi: I think all of us Sathya Sai devotees need to try harder to connect within, and not fall into some dependence on so called communicators or mediums of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba (who has unequivocally said that he never speaks through others). This is not to say that any such communicator or medium may not have some genuine psychic powers. They may, but the words they speak are their words and not that of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. If somebody chooses to follow their instructions they should know that they are following that psychic's instructions and not that of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba.
I think we must appreciate the courage and sincerity to spiritual truth demonstrated by Ms. Phyllis Krystal at an advanced age (around 100 years old, I believe) with some physical health challenges, in making such a honest and open declaration on her website.
It surely would not have been easy for her to acknowledge that she had drifted. I think almost all of us, if not all of us, do drift away from the right spiritual path at times (I certainly have my flaws and do drift). But how many of us, especially those that are writers on spirituality, have the courage to openly acknowledge that they drifted away from the right spiritual path? Very few, I think.
I hope this stirs other opinion makers and thought leaders in the Sathya Sai community who have drifted away from the safe and solid spiritual path taught by physical form Sathya Sai Baba, and come under the spell of FALSE CLAIMS of the so called chosen communicator of Muddenahalli, Madhusudhan Naidu, to seriously re-consider their spiritual stand. Even if they do not go to the extent of making open declarations like Ms. Krystal, it would be great if they at least stop promoting the FALSE CLAIM of so called communicator, Madhusudhan Naidu.
Thanks again to the courage shown by the centenarian Ms. Krystal in making her open declaration. I pray to Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba that Sathya (truth) and Dharma (ethical living/actions) prevail and prevail quickly in this very disturbing and deeply divisive Muddenahalli FALSE CLAIM matter.
Update on 17th October 2015
A FALSE CLAIM was made in a Muddenahalli group promoter email newsletter (dated 27th September 2015) as follows:
Sukshma Baba Report 110 27-9 -15 Phyllis Krystal
Below is the latest statement by Phyllis Krystal. It was made necessary by the twisting of the meaning of the original statement.
"Upon further consideration and now that I am in better mental and physical condition, I want to make it very clear that it was never my intention to disparage anyone nor fuel the flames of dispute or discord between Puttiparthi and Muddenhalli nor to confuse people. I continue to keep an open mind myself about this matter and remain neutral.
Swami has always told us to seek Him heart to heart. Sai Baba in his LightBody is in every one of us and we can reach Him in our own heart as our own true Self."
Be Good. Be Happy
Always Have Compassion

Ravi: The truth has a way of making itself known eventually. Satyameva Jayate! [Truth alone will prevail OR Truth alone will be victorious!] Being supposedly good and supposedly happy and supposedly compassionate should not be at the expense of TRUTH. Especially when it comes to following the TEACHINGS of Kali Yuga Avatar, Bhagavan Sri SATHYA (TRUTH) Sai Baba of PUTTAPARTHI.
