Here's an a couple of interesting additions to the subect of Isaac Shapiro and sex with students.
A friend alerted me to a facebook page on "Conscious TV" [www.facebook.com
Someone made a post questioning the realzation of Papaji (Isaac's teacher).
They wrote:"I don't accept that Papaji was Self realized. His "new" teachings have apparently never brought anyone to Self realization.
In the comments, Shapiro himself chimed in.
A commenter replied to Shapiro:"Isaac Shapiro you are still prisoner to your own lust , look at that first."
Another person wrote:
"Yes, many people are aware of the fact that Isaac has had sex with female "disciples".
I'm sorry but that's no exactly a sign that he became Self realized 'via' Papaji.
Then, they actually linked to this forum post on Shapiro!So, it seems that "many people" are aware of Shapiro's "lust".
I found out that Rick Archer of "Buddha at the Gaspump" took DOWN Shapiro's interview once he became aware of the fact that Shapiro had sex with multiple female "devotees".
There's another episode I have become aware of that should be made more public.At one time a friend of Shapiro's actually had an affair with Isaac’s partner.
No doubt he probably thought Shapiro wouldn't mind because he was 'into polyamory'.
When Shapiro found out, he punched the guy in the face and broke his jaw!
Let's hope that more people continue to confirm Shapiro's transgressions.
The thing that turns my stomach about all this is - this shit happens under big photos of Ramana Maharshi, implying that Ramana officially confirmed Papaji as Self realized (which he didn't), and that Papaji confirmed Shapiro etc.
All this material obviously puts Shapiro in a bad light, but it also puts Papaji in an ever increasing bad light too.
