Okay--thanks, Prometheus, for providing a list of
Klemp's accomplishments/ things that he has done
for eckankar, but now I have another question:
How much did Klemp pay out of pocket for any of
this versus what his chelas have paid and continue
to pay? Klemp's biggest accomplishment was to find
an easy way to have other people's money pay for his
keep on this planet that he has referred to as the
ashcan of the universe. I guess we can say that Klemp
is not only a user (taker) but also he's ungrateful. In
fact, I think that has been a long standing personality trait
existing since his childhood--he just didn't seem to appreciate
who he was or where he existed, so he needed to grab
onto a delusional star and make himself into something
he is not! He's not a people person so it matters little to
him how his actions affect others, including his chelas.
It's all about Klemp, the greatest consciousness in the
universe, so says he! But a thinking person would really
not buy into this phony boloney!
Maybe some other will come up with more of Klemp's
accomplishments? Has he done anything really profound
