A pair of studies published in Psychological Science, however, suggests that the physical and emot

(Quoted from above) There will also likely be people who have disappointing experiences when the miraculous “cure” they were hoping for does not transpire. Nothing works 100% of the time for 100% of people.

This is not to excuse gurus but to call the entire guru role into question. My opinion is that the social scene gurus allow to develop around themselves is a toxic work environment. Ni human nervous system can resist the temptation. The scene also attracts opportunists drawn to the power, the prestige and the aching trustfulness of the students who congregate around the guru.

"If a person sees themselves as an imperfect, low, unworthy slave, there is nothing to ever complain about if life kicks you in the ass repeatedly. Low expectations, fewer disappointments." It is also possible to develop massive arrogant pride as a compensation for extreme self- abasement -- the slave of Krishna feels superior to all those outside the sect.

Any adult who distributes boxes of matches to excited children and turns them loose would be jailed and held responsible for fire damage and loss of life and limb. In my opinion, Poonja did the equivalent of this.
