Re: ECKANKAR: The H.I. Letter, June 2007
- Hello All,
I thought that I'd bring this back to the front page for,
especially, the Lower Initiates to read. It's always good
to see all sides of an issue or topic and to make up one's
own mind via the ability to discern the information as one
searches for truth. This June 2007 H.I. Letter- ASK The
MASTER response, as well as, the June 2007 Wisdom Notes
are in Klemp's own words and is the most current information
and views coming from the Godman himself! Notice the
contradictions and different message when compared to
the Fear Tactics used on Lower Initiates in HK's Wisdom Notes!
