2072Re: [EckankarSurvivorsAnonymous] Time, Time, Time
- Jan 1, 2007O.K. so it's a holiday and I haven't anything else better to do. After
this I'll try to get off the computer so I won't bother you with any more
The cornerstone for the Pentagon was laid on 09/11/1941.
Ground was broken for the temple of Eck on 09/11/1989.
September 11th was 09/11/2001
There are 48 years between the Pentagon and the Temple
and 12 years between the Temple and 911.
So with nothing else better to do I subtracted 12 years from
1941 and got 1929. The stock market crashed that year.
I subtracted 48 years from 1941 and got 1893. There was
a stock market crash (in June) that year too.
Then I searched the year 1893 to see what happened on
September 11th for that year. No. 2 on the list was:
Swami Vivekananda at the World Congress of Religions.
September 11, 1893.
So, ground was broken for the Temple of Eck just 96 years
to the day after Swami Vivekananda gave his historic speech
at the World Congress of Religions.
In 1993, about 100 years later, David Lane published
The Making of a Spiritual Movement. How ironic (This
computer is starting to scare me and I don't know that
I want to search this any further :)
At any rate, here is a short excerpt from the Swami link:
Swami Vivekananda’s standing ovation: Swami
Vivekananda's opening talk is a benchmark, in that he
was one of the earlier teachers to come to America
from the East, and the first swami to visit America.
This name rings a bell to me for some reason. Didn't Ford
Johnson give a quote by him in his book Confessions? The
same quote that Paul Twitchell attributed to Rebazar Tarzs?
Maybe that was a different Swami Vivekananda?
Well at any rate, it looks like another entry for the timeline.
P.S. If there are typos or incorrect math in this post somebody
feel free to correct me.
