Thank you for the testimony.

If you read books in Poland written by their leaders, the fragment devoted to the mode of ignorance is paradoxically the longest.

Somewhere along the way there was an instruction - no listening to old tapes, which they still ignore today.

Regarding the Vedic texts, for example, if you confront the behavior of activists with the Vedic texts, e.g. that they overwork themselves when the Bhagavad Gita says that you should be balanced in work and rest, they say that you allow the worst thing because you use the Scriptures to criticizing.
There was a lot of behavior that could have been refuted by the scriptures.

Confirmed. Perhaps this is an element of duplicating the behavior of activists (I'm talking about Poland), i.e. leaders who returned from Hawaii. Someone taught them that. In any case, it was far from the behavior of serious Catholics and on average associated with the etiquette of Vaisnava. "You're in your ass again" - this is a flexible approach to etiquette. I've never heard the words of an apology (in the case).

Buuuuuut. This is just the official image. The bright brahmacaris who have unexpectedly visited the houses of some of the women currently hosting the activists (married, of course) are saying something else.You know, the best rumors are about sex

One of the Ukrainian initiates once said that this was her first chance to see a Guru live - probably in 2011 on a retreate ...
For me, in general, throwing into guilt is or naimittika dharma aimed at ignorant people who are addicted to drugs - it would be confirmed by Mr. Balakhiyla Midget - "spiritual life begins with the mode of goodness" - uttered in 2020. A little late...
Either way, the phenomena are similar in the cults of different religions. Initial love bombing mechanism etc.
