5772Re: H.I. Letter- June 2011- Ask the Master
- Jun 12, 2011Hello Non eckster and All,
Before I forget, would you mind commenting
on Klemp's front page article of the June 2011
H.I. Letter (Klemp gives a psychic reading).
Yes, Klemp seems very aloof but then again
he's greater than God, who is a 4th plane deity,
according to HK's Autobiography (p. 385) and
according to Twitchell's Shariyat. It's kind of
counter productive to tell Eckists not to worship
him since he claims to be higher than the "God"
(by whatever name) that other religions and
millions, if not billions, of people pray to and
Yes, Klemp states that he learned "How to
play the game" in order to be released early
when locked up in a mental institution due
to his ECK Master/bridge-tender delusions,
suicide attempt and airport strip tease. Later,
while working at the ESC in Menlo Park Klemp,
again, played his game of deception but this
time it was played upon Darwin in order to
be chosen as a non-threatening replacement
LEM. Darwin trusted Klemp but because of
some behind-the-scenes disagreements due
to poor business choices and a lack of ethics
Darwin was kicked to the curb. The Lack of
compassion, forgiveness, love and empathy
seem to be long-time personality traits of
FYI: All Eckists should read Klemp's 1987
book "Soul Travelers of the Far Country."
Klemp conveniently omitted much key info
given in this book when he rewrote it for
his Autobiography. Chapter 7 is really good
and tells about that Sound Proof (no Sound)
Dark Room (no Light) where HK worked daily
at the ESC and how he got Darwin to "hesitantly"
meet with him there (twice) to discuss the
transition. HK also admits to his frustration
even after being given his 7th or 8th initiation
and Marge saying, Why not be happy with
being an Eck Master? Although, according
to the Shariyat, only after the 12th can one
be asked to become Eck Master.
What's even more ironic is that there are
hundreds of Eckists, mostly female, that
could do a better job at running Eckankar
than Klemp! But, females are excluded from
the top spot because of some silly crap that
Twitchell dreamed up. What's even more
amazing is that these Eckankar women
believe this stupid "negative atom" B.S.!
Both Positive and Negative are all of the
Eck in the lower planes. Therefore, it
shouldn't matter... especially for Higher
Initiates who have established their con
in the Higher God Worlds of EK... correct?
It's just stupid that these EK women have
submitted themselves to, yet, another
religion run by Males Only. Women do
most of the work in Eckankar but will
never sit on the throne, hence, even
a male Eckist who is now a second initiate
has the potential to far exceed ALL current
or future female RESAs, 8th or 9th initiates.

Yes it does sound like there is a lot of lying and distortion. It just seems like Klemp is contemptuous about something. I have heard that other Cult leaders often were Bullies in childhood. Also, as you noted, who knows about those boy's religious Boarding Schools. Maybe there is also just some kind of Psychiatric problems as well, A penchant for getting naked in air ports and jumping off bridges, etc. He's already admitted having to lie to the Psychiatrist, right?
Anytime there is this weird self-hate about sexuality it seems like all kinds of perverse manifestations occur. Religions always seem to equate "Purity" with virginity, which is ridiculous, especially when it seems like it is usually the women who have to be the most pure by being a virgin. Of course this never really fits with reality as a human biological being. Lust. Talk about cognitive dissonance. So much attention is placed on supposed negativity. It is so obvious as a control tactic. Don't feel anything like doubt or anger at the hypocritical lem.

Hello Non eckster,
I don't believe Klemp had a
tough or an abusive childhood
except for having to do farm
chores, but that was expected
from all farm kids. FYI, HK had
an Older brother and a younger
sister and brother as well. Thus,
there was no "Virgin Birth" as
required in Eckankar's first Holy
Book the Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad
Book One, Chapter 6.
Klemp's father died (Oct. 1971)
when he was around 30 years old.
BTW- I always heard that Hitler
had a charitable and protective
mother and that his father died
when he was a young boy. Then
again, I can see why he lied about
having it tough just as Klemp lies.
But, it could be that this is just more
delusional thinking and a means
of coping which comes from an
As far as that All Boys Lutheran
School that Klemp attended...
it wasn't because little Harold
was spiritual or was seeking God.
He has admitted that he wanted
to go because his cousin was
attending... and he wanted to
get away from having to do farm
chores, especially, during those
Wisconsin winters. But, remember
too, HK also isolated himself from
The funny thing is that Twitchell
(the first Mahanta) had something
negative to say about these "All
Boys Schools." In the Summer
of 1971 Twitchell gave some
interviews that were put into
the book, "Difficulties Of Becoming
The Living ECK Master." On pages
46-48 the Mahanta/LEM gives
this explanation and warning:
"This is one reason we don't have
ashrams in ECKANKAR. They can
create unhealthy situations and
individuals seldom have their own
psychic space to breathe in. Now
you see, the same thing occurs in
seminaries of the Christian church.
These Christian seminaries, when
you're training young boys to grow
up, they are looking for all the
things which will explain to them
manhood or the problems of life.
It can create sexual aberrations.
... you can walk around the corner
of one of these ashrams or the
monasteries and find the boys there
abusing themselves... this seems
to be part of the animal nature in
which Indians in the religious orders
allow these young people to do. I
had always been surprised to see
that myself, no matter how much
I had become accustomed to chancing
upon such a thing."
In the next sentence (page 48) Twitch
mentions leaving India and that he
was about 16 years old at this time...
liar! Even Klemp states on Eckankar.org
that at age 27, in 1935, that Twitchell
had never travelled far from home
when he was "exaggerating" and
"twisting facts" to get into "Who's
Who in Kentucky." Interesting, that
in 1971, that Twichell (the Mahanta)
is still lying about his past. But, what
does this really tell us? It tells us that
Gross and Klemp merely inherited
an organization/church (scam) built
upon a foundation of lies. Klemp is
both the protector and perpetrator
of lies, distortion, and delusion.
Anyway, it seems that Twitchell and
Klemp have an opposite view on the
subject of masturbation. Klemp
recently commented on the subject
and said that it was okay. However,
IMO, the act itself fulfills (natural)
desires of lust. It's quite a quagmire
for the Mahanta and Spiritual Leader
of Eckankar and Modern Prophet
(Klemp) to take such a position.
Does one repress these innate desires
and become frustrated, or become
a "spiritual" hypocrite by saying one
thing and doing another? Or, is one
able to take the, supposedly, higher
"spiritual" path and remain chaste
and devoid of "bad" lower plane
desires and attachments? Apparently
Klemp is saying no!
Interesting history of Klemp's childhood. Seems odd that his father would pay
for him to go to a religious boarding school. But who knows for sure the
dynamics involved. We don't know what kind of discipline was used. Shaming and
and physical abuse can make a child grow up to be a sociopath and they learn not
to really feel empathy, often mistreating their own children. Of course it is
not 100%. There are also examples of those who had a stronger constitution and
eventually learned how to change and be a better person instead, but usually it
requires a willingness to accept help, whatever the form.
When I watch Klemp he seems to always have this superior, contemptuous look in
his eyes, no matter how big the intermittent practiced grin. It is reported that
Hitler was beaten on almost a daily basis, and bragged about how much of a
beating he could take without crying. He was a gang leader in his teens, shall
we say the worst kind of Cult leader, ruthless.
It is also interesting that Klemp has a ruthless quality to his personality.
When he fought it out with Gross in court over who was the real eck master or
mahanta he eventually claimed absolute power over his little eck kingdom. H.I.
eckists I know have that same ruthless quality, in that they are ready to go to
war if you ask too many questions about their precious eckankar. They are also
big hypocrites. Anyone want some eck love?
