Hello, say Culthusiast, you piece of arrogant shit. Why are you talking about hierarchy? Why focus on hierarchy.
Well, it's important. Formal and informal. Initiation introduces a formal hierarchy. Chris Butler recently said that SIF is a resource and there is no formal hierarchy within SIF. It means "guru-father", "1-st level spiritual praetorian". etc..oops. It's not true. Eventually even brahmin initiations appeared in SIF.
The formal side of the hierarchy is the position in business. Formal positions and shares in "guru's" companies.
It is informal to be a child of a "guru", a member of "families". Proximity.
What about Sastra and hierarchy? Important or unimportant castes?
Let's take the Bhagavatam Purana 6 Canto. There are two glorious deaths: the yogi controlling the air of life who is about to leave the body, and the army chief who, in mortal danger, advances, but as can be interpreted, advances to victory, is liberated, but yet fully responsible for his soldiers, goes to his death, does not speak "forward" only "follow me", no fear. There is also a hierarchy. Military.
Mood? War? A deadly threat? in the lead? Liberated, with opened mind, not afraind, yama-moral? We have - Panzerlied as someone pointed out:
"enemy ranks" - "threat from tactical to operational" "platoon, company, battalion, brigade, division, etc.."
Another symptom that Germans were supported by indologists in their ideological work, military marches, etc. Decode it yourself using the "Samkhya" apparatus.
Why does Midgett use circle tactics? Is there a meeting with the closest locals in the group and then in the whole group? Hierarchy classic.
