I have to say, that I do NOT see value in his teaching ( and this was one of the very first things which were off to me about the whole thing), as mentioned in my last posts. There are great clean sources of advaita teachings. In your case it worked well, maybe because you had former cult experience. This forum here is to educate people about how cults operate and how to see through it and free yourself. It is also a safe place where people can say what they have experinced without being censored. It is a place to share and find company after you have been banned from your former family. And if you are still caught up in m's cult it does not help to find his teachings valueable. You have to RUN!

Yes, there is some truth in what you say. M is not seen as evil here, he is seen as being a narcisist, showing the narcisist behaviours and abusing and manipulation people in sahaja big time. That is a fact as Joyfree points out.
