Allalong, this would be a great thread topic - soft cults. I am very sorry to say that though 12 Step groups are not supposed to be cults (The 12 Traditions were developed as a way to prevent this sort of thing), the set up is readily exploitable by power-trippers. Sexual predators who hunt at 12 Step meetings are nicknamed 13th Steppers and new persons should be warned that these people

We feel we are being seen, affirmed, truly loved. We do not feel victimized at all. We feel utterly affirmed as adults yet have unknowingly been manipulated and regressed to brain functions characteristic of early childhood an

I'd offer something else to what Resilient has contributed.

Politicization of India's monks, sadhus and gurus means they are no longer authentic practitioners of a renunciate path. Akharas’ spirituality was intact, until sadhus began promoting Hindutva politics The influence of Hindutva, which was consolidated in 1960s, gained unusual pace during 1980s and threw the old monastic orders of Hinduism out of gear.
