Friends, you two have a lot to offer. Welcome to CEI message board. Please, don't be down on yourselves. How can we *not* be ignorant and insecure when we are 17 years old?

Dear RevoG, When we are being reeled into a cult leaders net, when we are being added to the leader's collection of human assets, we do not feel exploited. 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. Once we find an instructor or retreat center where a simple, grounded body centered mindfulness practice is taught -- please stick just with that practice. At some point your teacher may begin adding "bells and whistles" that take away from the simplicity of that practice. You may develop deep trust and affectio

Moo behaved horribly by conducting that "exorcism" publicly, recording it on video, then disseminating that video online. Did anyone on Moo's media team advise him that filming and distributing this video would demonstrate that any Moo devotee risks egregious and permanent violation of their privacy?

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.

Prabupada and Chris Butler believe that so called 'ancient Indian Vedic culture" is the ideal to which we must return -- this is an entirely different from American culture. America was designed on the assumption that knowledge is not static but can be increased and extended, and that we can learn from and improve upon the past. By contrast, Butler, Tulsi's guru teaches that

IMO India's greatest liabilities are misogyny and caste. Because of the caste system, the Brahmins had the monopoly on mathematics, philosophy and record keeping. Brahmins did not converse or learn from mechanics or bureaucrats. By contrast information explosion in 15th century Europe which laid the ground for modern science was facilitated by the invention of mechanical printing.

A cult leader is no different from a gigolo who gives rich widows and widowers orgasms while looting their hearts and bank accounts. A gigolo does not love you. The gigolo knows how to stroke your neurons just right, and gets you to equate ecstasy with love. An expert on co addiction said, "Small kids can't NOT idealize their parents.
