I believe it was this quote from Michael's
Shariyat IV that contributed to my impression
regarding the Michael Owens lineage of masters:
[see 2nd paragraph]
Michael Owens' experiences that led to his
proclaiming himself the 974th Living Eck Master
are much like those of Forsyth and Davis in the
detail with which these "masters" reinforce the
Eckankar mythology. Indeed, Owens' claim to
mastership and spiritual pre-eminence reads much
like Graham's in his elevation to an exalted
status as the superior spiritual being. Here is
a quote from the Shariyat IV by Michael Owens
(aka, Dan Rin)
�There are five primary Masters that teach within
this line of unfoldment. The first and greatest,
and the head of all others within this hierarchy
of love and unfoldment, is Milarepa. He is the one
that guides [of] all others within this universe� s
planes, for he does possess the greatest wisdom of
all that may be known, except for Dan Rin."
