UPDATE for those who were not able to attend the Butler Recruitment Festival in Sacramento aka “Chant for Global Peace Festival”.
Notice that Butler is not mentioned anywhere. But all his followers seem to run the show. Old Jivan appears in many videos (Manjari Mantra Band). Miniature Ratha Yatra carts with Krishna idols were brought out in the festival. They didn’t have much of a turn out. Looks like the local cult regulars attending.
Channel 10 in Sacramento did a fluff interview with organizer and long-time Butler cultist Edna Albano.
(Is it just me or does Edna remind you of Ms. Swan on MAD TV just a smidge?)
People should contact Guy Farris and refer him to the Rick Ross forum. Guy needs to be informed that he was inadvertently promoting a dangerous cult under the cover of “world peace”. But how could he really know? It all looks so cool and innocent.
Edna Albano is a long time follower of Butler from the Philippines who has run PR and centers for Butler for years. She has produced a film called The Forgotten Jewel (Lotus Films Productions) in which her daughter Tulsi stars. Edna is one of Butler’s useful idiots with promotion skills. Notice the similarity between Wai Lana’s martial art kid’s productions (Karma Kula, Little Ninjai) and this film.

Ironic that the bad guy in this film has real control issues, thinks he is g0d, and behaves like a petulant child…very Chris-like – LOL! In fac,t there is one scene with the bad guy wearing sun glasses that looks like a young Butler with his sardonic smile!

In Albano’s Name Only – NOT Chris Butler, even though he is behind EVERYTHING they do.
Trance Dance or Psychic Sleep with Edna?
Psychic Sleep was a meditation technique used by Butler in his Sai days, but reinstituted in recent decades because it is so useful at influencing people.
In case you were wondering what ever happened to Prabhu Das (Pablito Davidas), one of Siddha’s/Butler’s Filippino singing followers – here is his music. Sings a LOT better than Siddha!
With all that we know about cults and mind control, it still does puzzle me how great, creative talents constrict themselves to Butler’s world view so completely.
They think they are saving the world by chanting, feeding people food offered to idols, and giving all their money to an aging narcissist. They end up sincerely promoting and worshipping his underground image, his black mirror, instead of expressing their own spirit and becoming more compassionate towards each other and the world. They may have genuine spiritual feelings and care for humanity, but it gets shoveled down Butler’s black hole. This forum is full of the results. So there is a sick irony to this Chant for Global Peace festival. Just ask the children who are not allowed to associate with a non-devotee parent or family member. Ask the woman with bulimia about the compassion she received from this group? Ask the children neglected while their parents served Butler. Ask former followers about the disparity between the philosophy and what is actually practiced on the ground.
