We are not talking about eating meat alone oh learned brahmana. I am talking about slaughtering sheep based on the story of Abraham. Trust me. I have seen with my own eyes what that poor soul went through. You think that they ahot him with a bullet? You throw scripture at me about eating meat. Try and slaughter a sheep with your own hands if you can. As an empath who loves animals witnessing th

With all due respect I did not escape the fanatical devotees of butler to have an Iskcon devotee on my back in a forum that is dedicated to cults. You really think that I just speak out of my behind with zero knowledge of the Vedas. I will never make such statement if I had not heard it. I have way different experiences and insights than most people. I am not devoted to Krishna and this forum

I have seen people debunk Yoga, meditation, unseen forces... If you allow me, I would like to address a tracing that has been bothering me. I hope that it will be allowed because it is a very important conversation. In all the years that I was a student of Bhakti Yoga, we were told to never speculate. We could not question anything.

This is a political oriented post, so if the moderator decides to remove it, I'll have no problem with the decision.

ex- Your comments reflect a position held by many cult apologists concerning "new relgious movements" (NRMs). However, many groups or movements called "cults" are not based upon religous beliefs and therefore cannot be considered NRMs. All of this is discussed in depth at the Cult Education Institute database.

Well, no. The uniform is a white sari with a badge on the left determining rank or length/level of commitment. It's normally only worn by widows in India. As far as the evidence goes, it was only adopted at a later date, and my guess would be inspired by Gandhi's followers, who also wore it and predated them. It was not traditional of their community in the Sind, and, in the early days,

Does anyone here catch on that the reason this con worked is because the con of religion and gods has been working for so long already? It’s an easy next step to imbibe just a little more BS when so much is so readily accepted in the main stream.

Is there a place for me to discuss this? I was in two cultish groups that met most of the criteria for a cult, and most of the criteria for being run by a cult leader. The only things I didn't experience was sexual and physical abuse in one cult. And the other cult that did me the most harm, I also didn't experience financial abuse. But these two cultish groups did me a lot of h

Thank you, Da Watcher, for your response. It appears that the same MO was used on the Polish devotees as the others around the world- if there is something that you do not know about- then you don't need to know about it- typical Butler control tactics.

And when He starts speaking to you, life opens up and everything starts to make sense. The story of who we are as humans, why we are here.
