Kirpal's Glossary of Terms vs. HK's EK Lexicon
- I did a search on the Ruhani site while looking
for Rumi and found info on Kabir as well. I also
discovered a "glossary of terms" used by Kirpal
Singh when giving talks to the USA Ruhani Satsang
It's interesting looking at some of these Hindu
words and Ruhani terms and comparing them
to the words & definitions found in the EK Lexicon.
Remember, Klemp used Twitchell's Eckankar Dictionary
to create his EK Lexicon.
I noticed that Twit was playing his games by doing
a letter reversal on some words to turn them into
his own unique EK version. PT also altered the definitions
as well. PT changed KALMA into KALAM. I also see how
Twitchell got the word ECKANKAR from EK-ANKAR,
but Eckists will of course deny this fact.
It's interesting reading about Rumi and Kibir and
Shamas Tabrez, or the Naam and using "charged"
words, God-Realized men, and the Music of the
Spheres. And let's not forget the Manukhs (worldly
people) or those Souls who are not "spiritual" All
religions have their rules and beliefs. Twitchell
merely created a Western copy of this one! And,
since PT was an initiated member of Ruhani Satsang
it became easy to do at the time.
There are also some of Kirpal's talks in German
Check it out!
