Re: A few scattered thoughts w/an important warning
- Hello R,
Welcome to the site! There is a lot of info on our
LINKS page that you may want to check out, as
well as, in the archives. The FIRST LINK has Truth-
Seeker info on Twitchell's early life and on the 2nd
Mahanta's (Sri Darwin Gross) lawsuit, etc.
That was interesting to hear you were an ECK Youth!
Today there is even more brain-washing going on with
the EK Youth. Eckankar has even invaded Myspace!
Yes, Klemp is a real Voo-Doo Guru!
I enjoyed Confessions of a God Seeker too! The 4th
and last section of the book was quite different from
the first three sections and dealt with Ford's philosophy
and what he calls the Master Principle.
BTW- I hope you found the Kirpal Singh info interesting
since Eckankar seems to have denied its true origin, lineage
My Grandfather started us in Eckankar. I remember hearing
Hu chants when I was just a kid in the 80's. I joined when
I was 18 and left when I was 21. It was revealed to me by
a friend that it was a hoax, which I began to feel and know
from my studies in martial arts. There was an overall lack
of integrity to the religion. I've been out of eck for 6 yrs
now and I am so eternally grateful to have escaped such
an evil and deceptive farce.
The scariest thing as that through practicing eck people
open themselves up to all sorts of negative spirits disguised
as angels of light. Once the person embraces them it is over
and the person will be lossed. These spirits have no link to the
line of God in the universe and crave that energy but can only
receive it when they are hooked onto another's spirit and body.
This usually happens when one communicates with spirits either
through direct spiritual communication or astral travel. Therefore,
I urge you all to be so careful and take every precaution to keep
this from happening.
Also, I have just started to read Ford Johnson's book and
it is wonderful at debunking the undenyable misinformation
in eck. If any of you are interested his sight will allow
you to access the main chapters on the proven falsehoods
In closing, my pravers and hope is with you all that each
of us may fully heal through the act of correcting our mistakes
while forgiving others and ourselves.
