1531Klemp Gives Proof That PT Lied About Sudar Singh
- Jul 10, 2006Hi All,
On the copyright page of the Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad Books 1 & 2 Klemp
gives the year of Twitchell's birth as 1908. In the Eckankar LexiCon
on page 61 PT's birth month and day of October 22 are given for "ECK
Spiritual New Year."
Therefore, the official Eckankar date for Paul Twitchell's birth is
October 22, 1908.
On the ECKANKAR.org website there are about 42 printable pages on
Paul Twitchell. These were modified by Klemp on June 22,
2003. "Confessions of a God Seeker" came out just prior to the date
that the Twitchell information was modified. Still, Klemp overlooked
editing some very important facts.
In the part called "THE STORY OF PAUL TWITCHELL" Klemp begins by
saying: "To say he had a checkered life is an understatement. In
many ways he was quite a rascal." RASCAL is defined in my dictionary
as "1. a dishonest or unscrupulous person."
In the section called "HIS OWN DRUMBEATER." The following quote is
from that section.
HK: "At the tender age of 27 he decided it was about time he got his
name in Kentucky's Who's Who... AT 27 YEARS OF AGE,  THE MOST
PAUL HAD EVER DONE WAS TO TEACH PHYSICAL EDUCATION. But by the time
he wrote it all up, EXAGGERATING and TWISTING THE FACTS, he had
worked up a nice little paragraph about all the grand achievements
of one PAUL TWITCHELL. He made it sound quite impressive... THIS WAS
FOLLOWED BY A LOT OF DARK YEARS FOR PAUL. [My caps]
In the part called "PAUL TWITCHELL, The MAN, PARTS 1&2" is a section
titled "LOOKING AT THE PAST FOR SPIRITUAL LESSONS" and here is the
HK: "Paul first met Rebazar Tarzs in 1951 in the foothills of the
Himalayas near Darjeeling. BEFORE THAT ON HIS FIRST TRIP TO INDIA IN
1935, [age 27] HE MET SUDAR SINGH." [My caps]
So, as we can see Twitchell could not have met LEM Sudar Singh in
1935 at the age of 27. We know PT was born in 1908 and 27 years of
age makes the year 1935. And Paul didn't go to India just after this
in the same year because Klemp tells us that this stunt
was "FOLLOWED BY A LOT OF DARK YEARS FOR PAUL."
Also, there seems to be a problem with Twitch meeting Rebazar in
1951 since PT was with Swami Premananda from 1950-1955.
In the part called "THE STORY OF PAUL TWITCHELL" and the sections
titled "EARLY COMMITMENTS" AND "THE CLIFF HANGER" Klemp states that
TWITCHELL WAS WITH SWAMI PREMANANDA FROM 1950-1955. HOW WAS IT THAT
TWITCHELL MET REBAZAR TARZS IN 1951 and STUDIED UNDER THE SWAMI
DURING THIS TIME PERIOD? OR, IS THE SWAMI ACTUALLY REBAZAR?
Personally, I think that Twit used the Rebazar character to fill in
for both Swami Premananda and for Kirpal Singh who initiated Paul in
1955. Klemp even mentions that Twitchell sent his Tiger's Fang
manuscript to Kirpal and had contact with him until around 1965!
It's interesting, though, that Klemp couldn't see the correlation
with the 1908 birth year for PT, the 27 years of age when PT lied
about everything to get into Who's Who, and the 1935 date of when PT
was supposed to have gone to India to meet Sudar the 970th LEM. LOL!
I can see why Klemp had trouble piecing it all together he (HK)
jumps around so much in his talks that Eckists get confused as well.
And, this PT info is presented out of chronological order on the
website. It's very disorganized and piecemealed together!
Well, what can one expect from the wiZard of oZ...
