ECKists Can't Comprehend PT's Shariyats
- ECKists should reread the last few pages of Chapter 4
in the Shariyat I. Since all words and thoughts are said
to be of the 4th Mental Plane Chelas should use these
reasoning processes to understand what is or is Not
being communicated in this 1st Section (Earth Plane)
portion of their Bible (Holy Book).
Twitchell states that "The highest of all spiritual regions,
the Kingdom of the Sugmad... is the Anami, the nameless
Well, I guess that since it's called the "Anami" that the
"nameless" Does Have A Name! Duh!
Also, isn't it interesting that this "highest of all spiritual
regions, the Kingdom of the Sugmad" is the 10th Plane!
The LEM is a 12th and 13th Plane Initiate. Each EK
Initiation Number represents the Plane of Consciousness
that the EK chela's consciousness is established upon (or
at least the previous number or plane)! This is why initiation
Numbers are so important to Eckists (whether they admit
to it or not)!
This comment, by Twitchell, represents only one of many
flaws in his Eckankar dogma that he created early on. The
real reason for the additional Planes (11-14) being "higher"
than the one Sugmad resides upon (the 10th) is that other
religions such as Radhasoami and Ruhani Satsang, also,
mention the Anami Lok. "THE PATH of the MASTERS" contains
these references and this was PT's main resource book.
Twit felt compelled to create something greater AFTER he
had his fall out with Kirpal Singh over his fictionalized "The
Tiger's Fang" manuscript in 1965-66. PT then edited his
own writings, but did not correct everything. As the "Mahanta"
PT could explain away anything and everything since all
others were below his newly created 14th Plane awareness
Here's another quote in this Shariyat Chapter 4 of Book One:
"--the Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad--... Each plane has a portion of
of this holy manuscript, ACCORDING TO THE UNDERSTANDING
OF THE CHELAS who reach this plane."
So, who determines what "UNDERSTANDING" is true for the each
individual CHELA's consciousness? Shouldn't this be Soul?! Nope!
In the Eckankar religion the one who determines what is true
or false for the "group consciousness" is the LEM. And, the one
who determines what is true or false for each individual Soul
is Not Soul - it is the LEM/Mahanta!
However, why does Klemp need to explain a 1st or 2nd Plane
(Kal) "portion" of the Shariyat to Chela's whose consciousness
is established on Higher Planes? Do ECKists need HK to explain
everything? At what initiation level are they permitted to stand
upon their own "spiritual" legs? Afterall, a 3rd Initiate and "Higher"
should be able to "understand" the Shariyat Book Two!
However, shouldn't Book One be even easier for Chelas to
comprehend ! Except, they can't and won't see the Truth!
Instead, Klemp will always be there to lead around by the nose!
The real Truth (the fraud) is too painful and fearful for them to
see. And, their foolishment is too difficult for them to admit!
Here's another quote from Chapter 4: "Those who watch over
the golden scripts of the Sugmad are the NINE UNKNOWN GODS
of ETERNITY. They are different from the ECK Masters who act
as the teachers, instructers, and watch-guards for the portions
of the Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad kept upon each plane. The NINE
UNKNOWN GODS are the KEEPERS of the DIVINE FLAME of WISDOM.
They LET ONLY A FEW INTO THEIR TEMPLES to learn the deeper
knowledge of what the SECRET TRUTHS might hold for them."
What ever happened to the NINE SILENT ONES? Twitchell now,
early on in Book One, calls these Beings "Gods." Has Klemp ever
mentioned, in 25 years, this connection with these NINE GODS
and the WISDOM TEMPLES? I don't think so!
Also, HK has NEVER said that only a chosen "FEW" (chelas and
non-chelas too?) get into "THEIR (the Nine Unknown Gods)
TEMPLES." Yet, here it is in writing in their Holy Book!
