Benign Spiritual Teacher
Fraudulent, Predatorial Cult Leader?
Aaravindha Himadra has a large following, especially in Europe. He does have US followers, too, particularly near his home for part of the year on Orcas Island, Washington.
Sadly, recent accounts and articles appeared that indicate this Guru is not all that he seems. He has claimed to be an enlightened teacher who found and has been trained my secret Himalayan masters that only he knows about. He claims to be in telepathic communication with them, perhaps at all times.
The fact that this sort of claim has been proved to be nonsense by every and for every spiritual teacher who has made similar assertions in the past would lead one to wonder. Anyone, like myself, who has actually been to the Himalayas would likely laugh at them. In fact, these Himalayan claims are a part of what has led some to assert that Aaravidha’s teachings are “bullshit” and to state that he is a total fake. Some spiritual folk have gone so far as to tell this writer that an in-depth look at Aaravindha’s teachings would indicate that they are revamped fluff, bits and pieces taken from many other persons and traditions, all put together in a way designed to gain followers and donations, all with the pretty blonde man dressed in white as a cover for the enterprise.
Then, an article by Be Scofield appeared. (It, and others, can be found here
.) it asked questions regarding Aaravindha Himadra, his organization’s (cult’s?) connections to a mysterious murder on Orcas Island, and made Aaravindha a more well known “teacher” in the process.
Aaravindha’s responses to Be Scofield, both in the legal system and, it seems, extra-judicially with a cyber attack dog of limited intelligence but some technical prowess, have been detailed in the ‘Be Scofield” topic on this site and will be fully explored here in subsequent posts. (News: Aaravindha was forced
to withdraw his lawsuit against Be Scofield since it had no grounds and was frivolous. He was forced to pay a penalty to her otherwise pro bono attorneys.)
So, Dear Reader, what do you think? Do you know of or have experience with Aaravindha Himadra?
Is he actually a “real teacher,” or is he another sad sack of Fake?
I must state that I have yet to find anything, even if the worst suspected now, besides murder, is proved to be true, that puts him anywhere on the scale of depravity near the excremental James Swartz. However, to say that one is better than James Swartz is not exactly a high complement.
