Could you explain a bit about yourself and why you
selected eckankar for your Religions of the World
class? How did you come to find eckankar? I hope
you are reading the posts on this site--they should
give you a very good look at former members'
perspectives and experiences--many have posted
why they dropped out of the cult! I also recommend
that you check out Ford Johnson's book "Confessions
of a God Seeker" and James Davis's posts on why he
left eckankar. Both Johnson and Davis were long time
followers of eckankar and quite active in the upper
levels of the org.
BTW, if you are a member of this site, you can go to
the Files and read chapters 6-10 of Confessions of a
God Seeker. The message board and archives are
available for reading without joining. However, there is a lot
of good info in the Files but they can only be read by
