Indeed ching hai was also on the bandwagon of the year2k scare of which her students were made to believe in some coming catastrophe. They also believe she helped to avert some kind of disaster at that time as they held a special new year retreat in Thailand to usher in the year 2000.
A round of applause rang around the venue as ching hai exclaimed, "We made it!".
You are quite right on the behaviour of this guru as as recently as this year in France she has been observed suddenly getting into fits of anger, shouting rudely at anyone who asks her a difficult question or someone who suggests something better than hers.
Last year in Austria she suddenly jumped up from her chair & started ranting loudly asking everyone to leave the hall for no immediate apparent reason & frightening the living daylights out of those present.
This sort of thing has happened before many times, but it seems to be getting worse.
She has had this neurotic disposition long before she called herself a supreme master as those who remember her from when she was a student of Thakar Singh can remember. [tinyurl.com
]. (Sorry this film is in German, but the description speaks for itself).
This is a documentary about Thakar Singh from German TV(no subtitles).
She definitely has no friends, she has only people who worship her out of fear.
Ching hai gets away with shouting at her followers by telling them she does this out of love & that this will help to check their egos.
She says she may look at someone & say sweet nothings to them & still think of something else or several things at the same time. But when she's shouting at someone all her energy is directed at that one person so the loving force coming through is even stronger as she's not thinking of anything else in the universe.
To her followers she's very charismatic & watching some of her tapes, she does have a way with words & seems to read the people around her.
This is how she gets away with all that paranoid behaviour & everything else.
Many intelligent & clever people have fallen under her spell to their cost.
Lets hope the demise of this cult is at hand as more people speak up & share information.
Thanks for your posts Anticult & "nice" photo!
