oh my that is a horrifying story, as stated the alcoholic man could have easily choked to death right on the bus. That could have meant charges against the SGI people who brought the man on board. Where did they dump the guy off? At a hospital? Or did they leave him at a bus station with $10? This is when "SGI chanting" really goes off the rails, and becomes dangerous. and the pos

AS far as police shootings, there is a pattern where police are trained that if they are going to shoot, then shoot to kill with a dozen bullets, likely for legal reasons. It seems the mentally ill repeatedly pay the price, as they are not behaving in a way that makes sense. Many people with problems with mental illness get hooked into SGI, as if you are suffering from delusions, then the SG

Yoo Byung-eun and Ikeda are cut from the same cloth, religious swindlers turned into multimillionaire businessmen and investors using Other People's Money, then followed by using others money to promote themselves as 'artists" and even both calling themselves photographers. Where are the investigations into SGI, and where have the Ikeda family put the SGI billions? Has SGI used t

Its a good list of some of the Tech basic NLP salespeople will try to use on you...Rapport, Matching Mirroring, Eye Cues, Anchoring and the rest of the list. And its not so much that all of that stuff actually works as advertised, its that by seeing someone is trying those techniques on you, it shows they are trying to manipulate you. And of course, most of that stuff is decades old, so the a

Very good advice to immediately and permanently stop any communication with anyone who practices overt NLP-Hypnosis for profit. Especially anyone associated with the Tony Robbins companies, as they are constantly messing with your mind using very advanced techniques of persuasion. Of course these days people are doing it COVERTLY so its difficult to know who is doing what, which is their poin

Right, SGI has DELIBERATELY told its followers that SGI-Chanting is the only way to achieve their goals. So then that ACTIVELY BLOCKS people from achieving their own goals and having a happy life! This way it makes people addicted to SGI, and the more they chant, the worse their life gets, and then they go back to SGI, and SGI tells them to chant harder and faster and to give SGI more money.

Just another point, in case the above seems too blunt. Classical Buddhist chanting, and things like that, were not about "getting stuff" like new cars and bigger house to show-off to make others think you are a big-shot, etc, they were about the exact opposite. So you had problems, and you said a chant and spun the prayer wheel, and maybe you felt a release, which would be good.

Its helpful to just keep getting the message out there that SGI-USA is not what it seems, that it has cultish tendencies. This way thousands of people will hear that, and at least their radar will hopefully go up. Similar to Scientology, most people know they are a "cult" these days, so one would think that would make it a bit harder to recruit. Another way to help people, is to sh

and as suspected, the so-called PUA pick-up artist community has picked up on OneTaste. The PUA pick-up artists, are men who's goal is to have sexual relations with as many women as possible. So they have found OneTaste is an easier way to that. Just search for these words, to see many links and connections. OneTaste PUA One Taste pick-up artist

You can see where in the past Reese Jones was blocked from the OneTaste wikipedia entry, even though he is mentioned in the New York Times, and many other articles. Also, it looks like the first place where Reese Jones was identified as being the man behind the curtain in OneTaste was in this forum.

Its very clear, that somehow guys like Reese Jones are able to use their insider influence of Wikipedia to keep themselves out of Wikipedia. If you search Google for "reese jones" wikipedia you will see various posts where Reese Jones says he "supports" Wikipedia, and that does not mean moral support. Obviously that is financial support.

Actually...it was obviously a SLAPP to try and censor Allan Steele and the SF Chronicle, which they lost. "Steele maintains that the lawsuit was designed to silence his public criticism. "It was nothing more than that," he said. "They wanted to shut me up." And he said he may sue the university to recoup his $300,000 in tuition fees and his $10,000 in legal bills.&

Right, imagine getting up before the SGI bigwigs, and saying...."I've been chanting my buns off for years, and doing all of it, and life still is crappy or more seriously...my wife still died of cancer..." Both of those have happened for SGI people, many of their lives still suck. And many in their families have unfortunately died, just like the rest of the population. If yo

There is another group called OneTaste which sells OM "meditation" linked with public sex activity, and the LGAT kitchen sink thrown-in. You could call it a sex-LGAT.

A summary from Nymag, and they make the point that OneTaste and Daedone are "monetizing orgasms", and making people dependent on an external organization and external people, instead of themselves. (which of course is how they make money off it). Except that they say cult experts have linked Daedone to Baranco, which is false. OneTaste's own PR people stated... "...OneTa

Its very clear that OneTaste targets people like "music bloggers" to come and write articles, because those folks have no awareness, knowledge, experience or education in these areas of psychological persuasion.
