Okay, it's obvious that Twit used
the Tibetan Buddhist Wheel of Life
in order to create his ECK-Vidya
Wheel. Why did Twitchell change
monkey to money? Well, as you
can see there is only one letter
to omit. Twitchell was playing his
game of change to create ECKankar
via omitting, adding, substituting,
altering, creating, plagiarizing,
and paraphrasing text, dates, words,
letters, numbers and names.
Perhaps Twit speed read it and

monkey because his subconscious
was focused on making money for

as a mistake in perception or vision.

it a modern Western twist and spin.
Thus, he made what the "monkey"

Thank you for sharing that one!

I'll have to find my ECK-Vidya, do
comparisons, and see where Twitchell
got his info. BTW-Since this book was
supposed to teach ECKists the Ancient
Science of Prophecy why isn't Klemp
using it or reprinting the book for new
chelas? Maybe it's over his head and
there's no one is capable of teaching it!
