Eckankar Founded on Lies & Deceptions
- Hi, All!
I've been reading many of the recent discussions on
A.R.E. One discussion centers around, of course, the
lies, deceptions and plagiarisms inherent in the eck
teachings, and whether they are relevant or important
to followers of eckankar. It is interesting how eckists
so easily and readily can dismiss these important
In one discussion, there is debate on whether Twitchell
stated he was born of a virgin. Here's a cross-post of
one dialogue from A.R.E.:

###When someone asked where Paul Twitchell had written he was
born of a virgin, brighttigress posted:
"The ECK enters into the womb of a virgin, the queen of heaven, who
has submitted to the true spirit of the universe. The consciousness of
the Mahanta state (the spiritual form of the human Eckankar leader) is
planted as the seed, and carefully nurtured in the womb. When the
embodiment of flesh is brought into this world, a man-child is born.
It starts its unfoldment over a period of years until the state of
perfection is reached, in adulthood. Then the chosen one learns that
he is the Living ECK Master of his times."Shariyat Ki Sugmad 1, pg.
111-112, 2nd ed., 10th printing
###Since Twitchell wrote the Shariyats, doesn't it seem logical that
Twitchell is saying he as the mahanta/l.e.m. was born of a virgin? If any
eckist would disagree with the concept of virgin birth, wouldn't that be
reason enough to discount the validity of the eck teachings . . . and quit
the cult? It would seem the logical thing to do! But, of course, eckists
can't be logical and believe at the same time! : )
Also, it is interesting that Klemp has not claimed that he was of a
virgin birth . . . so if he wasn't born of a virgin, following what Twitchell
wrote in the Shariyat, doesn't that mean that Klemp is not a mahanta
and cannot hold the position of L.E.M.
Eckists should think about this as they prepare for their big annual
event, the EWWS, and consider that featured speaker Harold Klemp
is not at all what he is promoted to be. He is no more enlightened
than any of us, if indeed, he is enlightened at all!!! All Klemp can be
is the protector and guardian of lies, frauds and plagiarisms. He
cannot be the leader of enlightened Souls! Eckankar is a sham!
