      Hello All,
      I thought I'd make some comparisons
      for everyone who didn't see this the
      first time around. Here are the three
      sources.

      The Path of the Masters
      PT's EK Dictionary
      HK's EK Lexicon

      This article is to show where Twitchell
      got his information, as well as, with how
      and when Klemp began to revise it. It's
      interesting that Klemp didn't understand
      Twitchell's modus operandi and, therefore,
      not only made spelling corrections to PT's
      info, but other revisions and even omissions!

      The following is from "The Path of the Masters"
      copyright 1939, eleventh edition 1977, 5. The
      Zoroastrian Faith, pages 50-51.

      FYI-This covers information found in both
      PT's ECKankar Dictionary and HK's ECKankar
      Lexicon concerning The HOLY IMMORTALS
      (RAYS or WAYS of light). These Beings are Not
      to be confused with the Nine Silent Ones, or
      with the Astral Rays]

      PATH: "According to Zarathustra, there are
      six different WAYS the Supreme One has to
      make himself known to men. They are called
      also RAYS of light from the Supreme. They are
      spoken of at times AS IF they were personalities
      --- 'Amesh-spenta' --- HOLY IMMORTALS."

      NOTE: The first Three represent the Male
      Principle; the next Three represent the Female
      Principle, of the Divine.

      "They are:
      1) Asa-Vahista, the Supreme Will, manifested
      in the world.

      2) Vohu-Mano, meaning good mind, divine wisdom,
      pure-mindedness.

      3) Khashathra-Vairya, all creative, all sustaining
      power.

      4) Spenta-Armaiti, perfect piety with single minded
      devotion.

      5) Haurvatat, absolute wholeness, perfection,
      spirituality.

      6) Ameretatat, immortal life, freedom from death or
      dissolution.

      *7) Ahura-Mazda

      *8) Sraosha, this Ray of the Divine One is something
      that can be heard... this is the Shabd Dhun of Santon
      ki Shikaha... it is the Audible Lift Stream of the Saints.

      These [first] six represent both the maternal and paternal
      qualities of God, the first three the fatherly and the last
      [next] three the motherly nature of the Surpreme. If we
      add to these six the great central figure of Ahura-Mazda,
      we have the SEVEN-fold Lord, as taught by the prophet
      Zarathustra... In addition to the above mentioned SEVEN
      RAYS of the divine One, he mentions another [8th] RAY
      or POWER which he calls Shraosha or Sraosha."

      ******************************************************

      Next, we look at Twitchell's ECKankar Dictionary,
      copyright 1973, *Sixth Printing (that HK oversaw) 1986.

      [NOTE: These "Rays or Ways" and "Holy Immortals"
      are not to be confused with the Astral Rays (pg. 10)]

      1) "ASA-VAHISTA, One of the six *RAYS of light from
      the Divine; the Supreme Will, manifested in the world.

      2) VOHU-MANO, One of the six *RAYS of light from
      the Divine; the good mind, divine wisdom, pure mindedness.

      3) KHASHATHRA-VAIRYA, One of the six *WAYS the
      Supreme SUGMAD has to make ITSELF known to man;
      one of the six RAYS of light from the Divine known as
      the Ameshspenta; the all-creative, all sustaining power.

      4) SPENTA-ARMAITI, Perfect piety with single minded
      devotion; one of the HOLY IMMORTALS.

      5) HAURVATA, The *FIFTH RAY of light or *WAY that the
      Supreme SUGMAD has to make ITSELF known to man;
      absolute, wholeness, perfection, and spirituality.

      6) AMERETATAT, One of the six RAYS of light from the
      Divine; immortal life, freedom from death or dissolution.

      *7) AMESHSPENTA, Means; HOLY IMMORTALS; the six
      WAYS, or RAYS of light from the Divine, that the Supreme
      SUGMAD has to make ITSELF known to man.

      8) SRASOSHA, The *EIGHTH RAY or WAY the
      Supreme SUGMAD has of making ITSELF known
      to man; the ECK, that which can be heard, the audible
      life stream."

      NOTE: See where Twitchell mentions the *Fifth and
      *Eight Rays or Ways in their descriptions. Also, in
      The Path of the Masters *"Amesh-spenta" --- Holy
      Immortals is mentioned in referring to ALL of the
      Rays or Ways, but P.T. alters the spelling and uses
      this term as the 7th Ray or Way and as a substitution
      for AHURA-MAZDA!

      BTW- It's interesting that Twitchell doesn't mention
      Ahura-Mazda in his ECKankar Dictionary, but Klemp
      does mention it in his EK Lexicon on page 5.

      "Ahura Mazda. A name used in ancient Persia for
      the state of Godhood; Zoroaster's name for God."

      Here's more from Klemp's EK Lexicon:

      "Zarathustra. See Zoroaster" (pg.241)

      "Zoroaster. The Persian Avatar who taught Soul
      Travel almost six hundred years before the coming
      of Christ and his followers." (pg.243)

      Now let's see what Twitchell said:

      "ZARATHUSTRA, The Persian Sage who was one
      of the MASTERS of the ANCIENT ORDER of the
      VAIRAGI lived hundreds of years B.C." (pg.159)

      WOW! ANOTHER ECK MASTER!!! But Wait!

      "ZOROASTER, The Persian Avatar who taught
      Soul Travel some few hundred years before the
      coming of Christ, and his followers."

      I guess that Twitchell didn't realize they were one
      and the same. Still, P.T. was the Mahanta wasn't
      he? But, is Klemp really the Mahanta?

      Okay, let's now compare Klemp's 1998 ECK Lexicon
      to the approved 1986 printing of Twitchell's ECKankar
      Dictionary and to the info in the 1939 copyright of
      Julian P. Johnson's "The Path of the Masters."

      BTW- In what year did Klemp become the "FULL"
      Mahanta?

      ************************************************

      Klemp's 1998 "The ECKankar LexiCON:"

      1) "Asha-Vahista. The FIRST of six RAYS of
      light from the Divine; the supreme will manifested
      in the world." (pg.12)

      2) "Vohu-Mano. The SECOND of the six RAYS
      of light from the Divine; the good mind, Divine,
      Wisdom, pure mindedness." (pg.225)

      3) "Khashathra-Vairya. The THIRD of the six
      WAYS the supreme SUGMAD has to make
      Itself known to man; one of the six RAYS
      of light from the Divine known as the Amesha
      Spentas; the all creative, all sustaining power."
      (pg.114)

      4) "Armaiti. The FOURTH of the six RAYS of
      light from the Divine; immortal life, freedom
      from death or dissolution." (pg.11)

      5) "Haurvatat. The FIFTH of six RAYS of light
      or WAYS that the SUGMAD has to make
      Itself known to man; absolute, wholeness,
      perfection, and SPIRITUALITY." (pgs.86-87)

      6) "Ameretat. The SIXTH of the six RAYS of
      light from the Divine; immortal life, freedom
      from death or dissolution." (pg.8)

      *NOTE: Klemp changed the spelling from
      Ameretatat to Ameretat. from both sources.
      Also, Klemp repeats the definition for the
      FOURTH and SIXTH RAYS!

      *7) "Amesha Spentas. Holy immortals; the
      six WAYS, or RAYS of light, from the Divine,
      that the Supreme SUGMAD has to make
      Itself known to man." (pg.8)

      *8) "Sraosha. In the Far Country, another
      name for the ECK, that which can be heard,
      the Audible Life Stream." (pg.200)

      It's interesting how speed reading reduced
      Twitchell's comprehension since he missed
      the 7th and 8th additions to the Six Rays or
      Ways. Klemp, of course, copied the info and
      decided to do his own alterations.

      This is just more proof of ECKankar's fraud!

      Here's a side-by-side comparison of the
      spellings of the *AMESH-SPENTA -- HOLY
      IMMORTALS the Six (plus Two) RAYS and WAYS :

      The Path (1939)-----PT (1986)--------HK (1998)
      Asa-Vahista............Asa-Vahista..........Asha-Vahista
      Vohu-Mano.............Vohu-Mano.............Vohu-Mano
      Khashathra-Vairya..Khashathra-Vairya...Khashathra-Vairya
      Spenta-Armaiti.......Spenta-Armaiti........*Armaiti
      Haurvatat................*Haurvata...........Haurvatat
      Ameretatat..............Ameretatat...........*Ameretat
      *Ahura-Mazda........*Ameshspenta........*Amesha Spentas
      Sraosha................*Srasosha.............Sraosha

      Notice that Klemp's rewrite matches "The Path
      of the Masters" version more than Twitchell's!

      ECKists should reread PT's EK Dictonary
      and HK's EK Lexicon and compare the two!

      Message 2 of 6 , Dec 2, 2008

        Hello All,
        Isn't it interesting that when the
        narcissistic Klemp "Slowed Down"
        the ECK Initiations (20 years ago?)
        that he, also, created more steps
        and hoops to jump through. HK
        refuses to share power, or his "brand"
        of spirituality.

        With Twitchell (and even Gross) there
        was SELF and GOD REALIZATION which
        was promised in THIS LIFETIME! What
        happened to the promise... Klemp!

        With Klemp was added SPIRITUAL
        REALIZATION between the other two!
        This term is not found in PT's ECKankar
        Dictionary or in the his Shariyats. It was
        created by Klemp after he slowed-down
        the initiations.

        "SPIRITUAL REALIZATION. A level of
        realization which come after SELF-Realization
        and before GOD-Realization. Includes
        mainly the initiations of the SIXTH and
        SEVENTH Circles." [pg. 198]

        However, this too is a Bait and Switch!
        Klemp is giving ECKists the impression
        that at the 8th Initiation (which few can
        achieve) one will experience God-Realization.
        BUT, in the Klemp's own words, only an
        ECK Master (a 12th Initiate) is God-Realized!
        Catch-22 again! Thus, 8ths, 9ths, 10ths,
        and 11ths are in a Limbo and are between
        Spiritual and God-Realization. Of course,
        one can always IMAGINE they are Higher
        in Consciousness (on the Inner). This is
        what works best for most ECKists.

        Another Klemp created term that is connected
        to the Slow-Down of Initiations and to the fund
        raising effort is "Co-worker with the Mahanta."

        Again, both Twitchell and Gross used only
        one term: "CO-WORKER WITH GOD."

        The FIRST definition is from PT's 1986 printing
        of the ECKANKAR DICTIONARY and the SECOND
        definition is from HK's 1998 ECK LEXICON.

        "CO-WORKER WITH GOD One who takes his
        place in the guardianship of the beings and
        entities throughout the worlds of God; voluntarily
        gives great love and compassion to the worlds."
        [pg.23]

        "Co-worker with God. One who takes his
        place in the guardianship of the beings and
        entities throughout the worlds of God; voluntarily
        gives great love and compassion to the worlds,
        an ECK MASTER." [pg.37]

        Notice the difference? Klemp added "an
        ECK Master" to the definition of "Co-worker
        with God!" Now, at what initiation does one
        become an ECK Master? It's the 12th! And,
        there has to be an Outer Third and Final Stage
        to give confirmation to any Initiation of a Living
        Person!

        So, how many ECKists can now achieve God-
        Realization with Klemp in charge? So far it's
        only the narcissist in charge, Klemp, that has
        the qualifications of God-Realization.

        Okay, let's look at Klemp's other new definition
        of CO-WORKER WITH THE MAHANTA.

        "Co-worker with the Mahanta. One who is
        IN TRAINING for ECK Mastership. To GIVE of
        oneself to BRING the MESSAGE of ECK to others,
        is ACTING as a Co-worker with the Mahanta."
        [Lexicon pg.37 (my caps)]

        It's interesting to scrutinize Klemp's choice
        of words in the above definition. I see it as
        time-delay ploy due to his need for more
        missionary/salespeople and to stress more
        use of the imagination via "Acting" as if this
        or that is true or possible.

        Remember, Twitchell promised ECKists
        Spiritual Freedom and GOD-REALIZATION
        IN THIS LIFETIME! What has Klemp done with
        that promise? HK's "changed" it and took
        it away! One has to be an ECK Master (12th)!

        For me it's now clear that Klemp is playing
        the childish game of "King of the Mountain"
        and he's not permitting anyone to get close
        enough to pull him down or knock him off his
        hill.

        The Path of the Masters

        The following is from "The Path of the Masters"
        copyright 1939, eleventh edition 1977, 5. The
        Zoroastrian Faith, pages 50-51.

        FYI-This covers information found in both
        PT's ECKankar Dictionary and HK's ECKankar
        Lexicon concerning The HOLY IMMORTALS
        (RAYS or WAYS of light). These Beings are Not
        to be confused with the Nine Silent Ones, or
        with the Astral Rays]

        PATH: "According to Zarathustra, there are
        six different WAYS the Supreme One has to

        in the world.

        2) Vohu-Mano, meaning good mind, divine wisdom,
        pure-mindedness.

        3) Khashathra-Vairya, all creative, all sustaining

        devotion.

        5) Haurvatat, absolute wholeness, perfection,
        spirituality.

        6) Ameretatat, immortal life, freedom from death or
        dissolution.

        or POWER which he calls Shraosha or SRAOSHA."

        ******************************************************

        Next, we look at Twitchell's ECKankar Dictionary,
        copyright 1973, *Sixth Printing 1986 (HK oversaw this).

        [NOTE: These "Rays or Ways" and "Holy Immortals"
        are not to be confused with the Astral Rays (pg. 10)]

        1) "ASA-VAHISTA, One of the six *RAYS of light
        from the Divine; the Supreme Will, manifested in
        the world.

        2) VOHU-MANO, One of the six *RAYS of light
        from the Divine; the good mind, divine wisdom,
        pure mindedness.

        3) KHASHATHRA-VAIRYA, One of the six *WAYS
        the Supreme SUGMAD has to make ITSELF known
        to man; one of the six RAYS of light from the
        Divine known as the Ameshspenta; the all-creative,
        all sustaining power.

        4) SPENTA-ARMAITI, Perfect piety with single
        minded devotion; one of the HOLY IMMORTALS.

        5) HAURVATA, The *FIFTH RAY of light or *WAY
        that the Supreme SUGMAD has to make ITSELF
        known to man; absolute, wholeness, perfection,
        and spirituality.

        6) AMERETATAT, One of the six RAYS of light
        from the Divine; immortal life, freedom from
        death or dissolution.

        8) SRASOSHA, The *EIGHTH RAY or WAY the
        Supreme SUGMAD has of making ITSELF known
        to man; the ECK, that which can be heard, the
        audible life stream."

        NOTE: See where Twitchell mentions the *Fifth and
        *Eight Rays or Ways in their descriptions. Also, in
        The Path of the Masters *"Amesh-spenta" --- Holy
        Immortals is mentioned in referring to ALL of the
        Rays or Ways, but P.T. alters the spelling and uses
        this term as the 7th Ray or Way and as a substitution
        for AHURA-MAZDA!

        BTW- It's interesting that Twitchell doesn't mention
        Ahura-Mazda in his ECKankar Dictionary, but Klemp
        does mention it in his EK Lexicon on page 5.

        "Ahura Mazda. A name used in ancient Persia for
        the state of Godhood; Zoroaster's name for God."

        Here's more from Klemp's EK Lexicon:

        "Zarathustra. See Zoroaster" (pg.241)

        "Zoroaster. The Persian Avatar who taught Soul
        Travel almost six hundred years before the coming
        of Christ and his followers." (pg.243)

        Now let's see what Twitchell said:

        "ZARATHUSTRA, The Persian Sage who was one
        of the MASTERS of the ANCIENT ORDER of the
        VAIRAGI lived hundreds of years B.C." (pg.159)

        WOW! ANOTHER ECK MASTER!!! But Wait!

        "ZOROASTER, The Persian Avatar who taught
        Soul Travel some few hundred years before the
        coming of Christ, and his followers."

        I guess that Twitchell didn't realize they were one
        and the same. Still, P.T. was the Mahanta wasn't
        he? But, is Klemp really the Mahanta?

        FOURTH and SIXTH RAYS!

        *7) "Amesha Spentas. Holy immortals; the
        six WAYS, or RAYS of light, from the Divine,
        that the Supreme SUGMAD has to make
        Itself known to man." (pg.8)

        *8) "Sraosha. In the Far Country, another
        name for the ECK, that which can be heard,
        the Audible Life Stream." (pg.200)

        It's interesting how speed reading reduced
        Twitchell's comprehension since he missed
        the 7th and 8th additions to the Six Rays or
        Ways. Klemp, of course, copied the info and
        decided to do his own alterations.

        This is just more proof of ECKankar's fraud!

        Here's a side-by-side comparison of the
        spellings of the *AMESH-SPENTA -- HOLY
        IMMORTALS the Six (plus Two) RAYS and WAYS :

        The Path (1939)---PT (1973&1986)-------HK (1998)
        Asa-Vahista..............Asa-Vahista.............Asha-Vahista
        Vohu-Mano...............Vohu-Mano..............Vohu-Mano
        Khashathra-Vairya..Khashathra-Vairya...Khashathra-Vairya
        Spenta-Armaiti.........Spenta-Armaiti..........*Armaiti
        Haurvatat....................*Haurvata................Haurvatat
        Ameretatat.................Ameretatat...............*Ameretat
        *Ahura-Mazda.........*Ameshspenta........*Amesha Spentas
        Sraosha.......................*Srasosha.................Sraosha

        Notice that Klemp's rewrite matches "The Path
        of the Masters" version more than Twitchell's,
        but goes against the other two on "Ameretat!"

        ECKists should reread PT's EK Dictonary
        and HK's EK Lexicon and compare the two!

        Very good post, Prometheus. You brought out some important considerations for any eckist who is wondering about Eckankar s former promise of God Realization.

          Very good post, Prometheus. You brought out some important considerations for any
          eckist who is wondering about Eckankar's former promise of God Realization.

          Maybe this will show them Klemp's self-serving narcissistic behavior.

          Etznab, would you consider making an Eckankar timeline for Prometheus to post in the
          files sections?

            **************************************************************

            Liska,

            It's really not difficult to build a timeline. All you do
            is put events in order according to date. However, if
            I were to create one, the dates might agree, but what
            information I include might be different from what
            someone else would.

            I answered the question that it would probably take
            some time for me to create a public file. I don't know
            how soon that can be done. In the mean time, I would
            suggest making a record of history as it happens and
            then you could use the data at a latter date.

            What I do is, when something I consider significant
            to Eckankar history is mentioned, I just put it on the
            timeline according to the date.

            Probably a good amount of trivia has come to me by
            reading newsgroups - like this one - and corresponding
            with current and former members. I didn't join Eckankar
            until about 1987 so I've had to do a lot of research for
            certain specific dates and facts.

            David Lane, Ford Johnson, Doug Marman and others
            have illustrated some history (IMO) according to what
            each saw as most relevant, I suspect. Each had their
            own way of illustrating (some have web sites too). I did
            not write a book like they did, but arranged data accor-
            0Ading to date. I think this is helpful, to have such a data
            file, because it allows a viewer to look at a timeline and
            contemplate trivia for themself, without a lot of particular
            spin or bias on the part of a single author.

            When I had my own timeline up in the past, it was (I
            would say) about 99 percent compiled data and little, if
            any, personal commentary. This is the way I try to do a
            timeline. Just list the data and let people decide what it
            means to them.

            Very good post, Prometheus. You brought out some important
            considerations for any

            eckist who is wondering about Eckankar's former promise of God
            Realization.



            Maybe this will show them Klemp's self-serving narcissistic behavior.



            Etznab, would you consider making an Eckankar timeline for Prometheus
            to post in the

            files sections?

            Hello All, I was looking at the definition of Margs (and the different ones) in the EK Lexicon. It s strange that a marg is defined as a path to God and
            Message 5 of 6 , Dec 4, 2008

              Hello All,
              I was looking at the definition of Margs
              (and the different ones) in the EK Lexicon.
              It's strange that a "marg" is defined as "a
              path to God" and yet it is found within a
              religion that is supposed to be it's own
              path to God!

              The Path of the Masters lists these
              margs in Ch.2 Section 10:

              Gian-Marg
              Dharma-Marg
              Surat Shabd Marg
              Bhakti-Marg

              Klemp lists these under marg (pg.135):

              Arahata Marg
              Bhakti Marg
              ECK Marg
              Giani Marg
              Karma Marg
              Prapatti Marg
              Vahana Marg

              However, on page 22 of the EK Lexicon
              Klemp mentions the:

              Bihangham Marg.

              And, in The Holy Fire of ECK vol. 1 pgs.
              22-23 Klemp mentions the:

              Contemplative Marg/Order

              So, if these are all individual "paths to God"
              why do chelas need ECKankar or Radhasoami
              or Ruhani Satsang?

              Prometheus




              Prometheus wrote:
              Isn't it interesting that when the
              narcissistic Klemp "Slowed Down"
              the ECK Initiations (20 years ago?)
              that he, also, created more steps
              and hoops to jump through. HK
              refuses to share power, or his "brand"
              of spirituality.

              With Twitchell (and even Gross) there
              was SELF and GOD REALIZATION which
              was promised in THIS LIFETIME! What
              happened to the promise... Klemp!

              With Klemp was added SPIRITUAL
              REALIZATION between the other two!
              This term is not found in PT's ECKankar
              Dictionary or in the his Shariyats. It was
              created by Klemp after he slowed-down
              the initiations.

              "SPIRITUAL REALIZATION. A level of
              realization which come after SELF-Realization
              and before GOD-Realization. Includes
              mainly the initiations of the SIXTH and
              SEVENTH Circles." [pg. 198]

              However, this too is a Bait and Switch!
              Klemp is giving ECKists the impression
              that at the 8th Initiation (which few can
              achieve) one will experience God-Realization.
              BUT, in the Klemp's own words, only an
              ECK Master (a 12th Initiate) is God-Realized!
              Catch-22 again! Thus, 8ths, 9ths, 10ths,
              and 11ths are in a Limbo and are between
              Spiritual and God-Realization. Of course,
              one can always IMAGINE they are Higher
              in Consciousness (on the Inner). This is
              what works best for most ECKists.

              Another Klemp created term that is connected
              to the Slow-Down of Initiations and to the fund
              raising effort is "Co-worker with the Mahanta."

              Again, both Twitchell and Gross used only
              one term: "CO-WORKER WITH GOD."

              The FIRST definition is from PT's 1986 printing
              of the ECKANKAR DICTIONARY and the SECOND
              definition is from HK's 1998 ECK LEXICON.

              "CO-WORKER WITH GOD One who takes his
              place in the guardianship of the beings and
              entities throughout the worlds of God; voluntarily
              gives great love and compassion to the worlds."
              [pg.23]

              "Co-worker with God. One who takes his
              place in the guardianship of the beings and
              entities throughout the worlds of God; voluntarily
              gives great love and compassion to the worlds,
              an ECK MASTER." [pg.37]

              Notice the difference? Klemp added "an
              ECK Master" to the definition of "Co-worker
              with God!" Now, at what initiation does one
              become an ECK Master? It's the 12th! And,
              there has to be an Outer Third and Final Stage
              to give confirmation to any Initiation of a Living
              Person!

              So, how many ECKists can now achieve God-
              Realization with Klemp in charge? So far it's
              only the narcissist in charge, Klemp, that has
              the qualifications of God-Realization.

              Okay, let's look at Klemp's other new definition
              of CO-WORKER WITH THE MAHANTA.

              "Co-worker with the Mahanta. One who is
              IN TRAINING for ECK Mastership. To GIVE of
              oneself to BRING the MESSAGE of ECK to others,
              is ACTING as a Co-worker with the Mahanta."
              [Lexicon pg.37 (my caps)]

              It's interesting to scrutinize Klemp's choice
              of words in the above definition. I see it as
              time-delay ploy due to his need for more
              missionary/salespeople and to stress more
              use of the imagination via "Acting" as if this
              or that is true or possible.

              Remember, Twitchell promised ECKists
              Spiritual Freedom and GOD-REALIZATION
              IN THIS LIFETIME! What has Klemp done with
              that promise? HK's "changed" it and took
              it away! One has to be an ECK Master (12th)!

              For me it's now clear that Klemp is playing
              the childish game of "King of the Mountain"
              and he's not permitting anyone to get close
              enough to pull him down or knock him off his
              hill.

              I thought I'd make some comparisons
              for everyone who didn't see this the

              sources.

              The Path of the Masters
              PT's EK Dictionary
              HK's EK Lexicon

              This article is to show where Twitchell
              got his information, as well as, with how
              and when Klemp began to revise it. It's
              interesting that Klemp didn't understand
              Twitchell's modus operandi and, therefore,
              not only made spelling corrections to PT's
              info, but other revisions and even omissions!

              The following is from "The Path of the Masters"
              copyright 1939, eleventh edition 1977, 5. The
              Zoroastrian Faith, pages 50-51.

              FYI-This covers information found in both
              PT's ECKankar Dictionary and HK's ECKankar
              Lexicon concerning The HOLY IMMORTALS
              (RAYS or WAYS of light). These Beings are Not
              to be confused with the Nine Silent Ones, or
              with the Astral Rays]

              PATH: "According to Zarathustra, there are
              six different WAYS the Supreme One has to
              make himself known to men. They are called
              also RAYS of light from the Supreme. They are
              spoken of at times AS IF they were personalities
              --- 'Amesh-spenta' --- HOLY IMMORTALS."

              NOTE: The first Three represent the Male
              Principle; the next Three represent the Female
              Principle, of the Divine.

              "They are:
              1) Asa-Vahista, the Supreme Will, manifested
              in the world.

              2) Vohu-Mano, meaning good mind, divine wisdom,
              pure-mindedness.

              3) Khashathra-Vairya, all creative, all sustaining
              power.

              4) Spenta-Armaiti, perfect piety with single minded
              devotion.

              5) Haurvatat, absolute wholeness, perfection,
              spirituality.

              6) Ameretatat, immortal life, freedom from death or
              dissolution.

              *7) Ahura-Mazda

              *8) Sraosha, this Ray of the Divine One is something
              that can be heard... this is the Shabd Dhun of Santon
              ki Shikaha... it is the AUDIBLE LIFE STREAM of the Saints.

              These [first] six represent both the maternal and paternal
              qualities of God, the first three the fatherly and the last
              [next] three the motherly nature of the Surpreme. If we
              add to these six the great central figure of Ahura-Mazda,
              we have the SEVEN-fold Lord, as taught by the prophet
              Zarathustra... In addition to the above mentioned SEVEN
              RAYS of the divine One, he mentions another [8th] RAY
              or POWER which he calls Shraosha or SRAOSHA."

              ******************************************************

              Next, we look at Twitchell's ECKankar Dictionary,
              copyright 1973, *Sixth Printing 1986 (HK oversaw this).

              [NOTE: These "Rays or Ways" and "Holy Immortals"
              are not to be confused with the Astral Rays (pg. 10)]

              1) "ASA-VAHISTA, One of the six *RAYS of light
              from the Divine; the Supreme Will, manifested in
              the world.

              2) VOHU-MANO, One of the six *RAYS of light
              from the Divine; the good mind, divine wisdom,
              pure mindedness.

              3) KHASHATHRA-VAIRYA, One of the six *WAYS
              the Supreme SUGMAD has to make ITSELF known
              to man; one of the six RAYS of light from the
              Divine known as the Ameshspenta; the all-creative,
              all sustaining power.

              4) SPENTA-ARMAITI, Perfect piety with single
              minded devotion; one of the HOLY IMMORTALS.

              5) HAURVATA, The *FIFTH RAY of light or *WAY
              that the Supreme SUGMAD has to make ITSELF
              known to man; absolute, wholeness, perfection,
              and spirituality.

              6) AMERETATAT, One of the six RAYS of light
              from the Divine; immortal life, freedom from
              death or dissolution.

              *7) AMESHSPENTA, Means; HOLY IMMORTALS;
              the six WAYS, or RAYS of light from the Divine,
              that the Supreme SUGMAD has to make ITSELF
              known to man.

              8) SRASOSHA, The *EIGHTH RAY or WAY the
              Supreme SUGMAD has of making ITSELF known
              to man; the ECK, that which can be heard, the
              audible life stream."

              NOTE: See where Twitchell mentions the *Fifth and
              *Eight Rays or Ways in their descriptions. Also, in
              The Path of the Masters *"Amesh-spenta" --- Holy
              Immortals is mentioned in referring to ALL of the
              Rays or Ways, but P.T. alters the spelling and uses
              this term as the 7th Ray or Way and as a substitution
              for AHURA-MAZDA!

              BTW- It's interesting that Twitchell doesn't mention
              Ahura-Mazda in his ECKankar Dictionary, but Klemp
              does mention it in his EK Lexicon on page 5.

              "Ahura Mazda. A name used in ancient Persia for
              the state of Godhood; Zoroaster's name for God."

              Here's more from Klemp's EK Lexicon:

              "Zarathustra. See Zoroaster" (pg.241)

              "Zoroaster. The Persian Avatar who taught Soul
              Travel almost six hundred years before the coming
              of Christ and his followers." (pg.243)

              Now let's see what Twitchell said:

              "ZARATHUSTRA, The Persian Sage who was one
              of the MASTERS of the ANCIENT ORDER of the
              VAIRAGI lived hundreds of years B.C." (pg.159)

              WOW! ANOTHER ECK MASTER!!! But Wait!

              "ZOROASTER, The Persian Avatar who taught
              Soul Travel some few hundred years before the
              coming of Christ, and his followers."

              I guess that Twitchell didn't realize they were one
              and the same. Still, P.T. was the Mahanta wasn't
              he? But, is Klemp really the Mahanta?

              Okay, let's now compare Klemp's 1998 ECK Lexicon
              to the approved 1986 printing of Twitchell's ECKankar
              Dictionary and to the info in the 1939 copyright of
              Julian P. Johnson's "The Path of the Masters."

              BTW- In what year did Klemp become the "FULL"
              Mahanta?

              Ameretatat to Ameretat. from both sources.
              Also, Klemp repeats the definition for the
              FOURTH and SIXTH RAYS!

              *7) "Amesha Spentas. Holy immortals; the
              six WAYS, or RAYS of light, from the Divine,
              that the Supreme SUGMAD has to make
              Itself known to man." (pg.8)

              *8) "Sraosha. In the Far Country, another
              name for the ECK, that which can be heard,
              the Audible Life Stream." (pg.200)

              It's interesting how speed reading reduced
              Twitchell's comprehension since he missed
              the 7th and 8th additions to the Six Rays or
              Ways. Klemp, of course, copied the info and
              decided to do his own alterations.

              This is just more proof of ECKankar's fraud!

              Here's a side-by-side comparison of the
              spellings of the *AMESH-SPENTA -- HOLY
              IMMORTALS the Six (plus Two) RAYS and WAYS :

              The Path (1939)---PT (1973&1986)-------HK (1998)
              Asa-Vahista..............Asa-Vahista..............Asha-Vahista

              *Ahura-Mazda.........*Ameshspenta...........*Amesha Spentas
              Sraosha.......................*Srasosha.....................Sraosha

              Notice that Klemp's rewrite matches "The Path
              of the Masters" version more than Twitchell's,
              but goes against the other two on "Ameretat!"

              ECKists should reread PT's EK Dictonary
              and HK's EK Lexicon and compare the two!

                NOTE: What's really interesting is that Anthony
                Moore compiled this information while Joan
                Klemp and Mary Caroll Moore edited it!

                Plus, it was Harry's (the Mahanta's) responsibility
                to review this info and sign off on it!!! And, this
                EK Lexicon was printed only 10 years ago in 1998!

                I was looking at the definition of Margs
                (and the different ones) in the EK Lexicon.
                It's strange that a "marg" is defined as "a
                path to God" and yet it is found within a
                religion that is supposed to be it's own
                path to God!

                The Path of the Masters lists these
                margs in Ch.2 Section 10:

                Gian-Marg
                Dharma-Marg
                Surat Shabd Marg
                Bhakti-Marg

                Klemp lists these under marg (pg.135):

                Arahata Marg
                Bhakti Marg
                ECK Marg
                Giani Marg
                Karma Marg
                Prapatti Marg
                Vahana Marg

                However, on page 22 of the EK Lexicon
                Klemp mentions the:

                Bihangham Marg.

                And, in The Holy Fire of ECK vol. 1 pgs.
                22-23 Klemp mentions the:

                Contemplative Marg/Order

                So, if these are all individual "paths to God"
                why do chelas need ECKankar or Radhasoami
                or Ruhani Satsang?

                Prometheus wrote:
                Isn't it interesting that when the
                narcissistic Klemp "Slowed Down"
                the ECK Initiations (20 years ago?)
                that he, also, created more steps
                and hoops to jump through. HK
                refuses to share power, or his "brand"
                of spirituality.

                With Twitchell (and even Gross) there
                was SELF and GOD REALIZATION which
                was promised in THIS LIFETIME! What
                happened to the promise... Klemp!

                With Klemp was added SPIRITUAL
                REALIZATION between the other two!
                This term is not found in PT's ECKankar
                Dictionary or in the his Shariyats. It was
                created by Klemp after he slowed-down
                the initiations.

                "SPIRITUAL REALIZATION. A level of
                realization which come after SELF-Realization
                and before GOD-Realization. Includes
                mainly the initiations of the SIXTH and
                SEVENTH Circles." [pg. 198]

                However, this too is a Bait and Switch!
                Klemp is giving ECKists the impression
                that at the 8th Initiation (which few can
                achieve) one will experience God-Realization.
                BUT, in the Klemp's own words, only an
                ECK Master (a 12th Initiate) is God-Realized!
                Catch-22 again! Thus, 8ths, 9ths, 10ths,
                and 11ths are in a Limbo and are between
                Spiritual and God-Realization. Of course,
                one can always IMAGINE they are Higher
                in Consciousness (on the Inner). This is
                what works best for most ECKists.

                Another Klemp created term that is connected
                to the Slow-Down of Initiations and to the fund
                raising effort is "Co-worker with the Mahanta."

                Again, both Twitchell and Gross used only
                one term: "CO-WORKER WITH GOD."

                The FIRST definition is from PT's 1986 printing
                of the ECKANKAR DICTIONARY and the SECOND
                definition is from HK's 1998 ECK LEXICON.

                "CO-WORKER WITH GOD One who takes his
                place in the guardianship of the beings and
                entities throughout the worlds of God; voluntarily
                gives great love and compassion to the worlds."
                [pg.23]

                "Co-worker with God. One who takes his
                place in the guardianship of the beings and
                entities throughout the worlds of God; voluntarily
                gives great love and compassion to the worlds,
                an ECK MASTER." [pg.37]

                Notice the difference? Klemp added "an
                ECK Master" to the definition of "Co-worker
                with God!" Now, at what initiation does one
                become an ECK Master? It's the 12th! And,
                there has to be an Outer Third and Final Stage
                to give confirmation to any Initiation of a Living
                Person!

                So, how many ECKists can now achieve God-
                Realization with Klemp in charge? So far it's
                only the narcissist in charge, Klemp, that has
                the qualifications of God-Realization.

                Okay, let's look at Klemp's other new definition
                of CO-WORKER WITH THE MAHANTA.

                "Co-worker with the Mahanta. One who is
                IN TRAINING for ECK Mastership. To GIVE of
                oneself to BRING the MESSAGE of ECK to others,
                is ACTING as a Co-worker with the Mahanta."
                [Lexicon pg.37 (my caps)]

                It's interesting to scrutinize Klemp's choice
                of words in the above definition. I see it as
                time-delay ploy due to his need for more
                missionary/salespeople and to stress more
                use of the imagination via "Acting" as if this
                or that is true or possible.

                Remember, Twitchell promised ECKists
                Spiritual Freedom and GOD-REALIZATION
                IN THIS LIFETIME! What has Klemp done with
                that promise? HK's "changed" it and took
                it away! One has to be an ECK Master (12th)!

                For me it's now clear that Klemp is playing
                the childish game of "King of the Mountain"
                and he's not permitting anyone to get close
                enough to pull him down or knock him off his
                hill.

                and when Klemp began to revise it. It's
                interesting that Klemp didn't understand

                not only made spelling corrections to PT's
                info, but other revisions and even omissions!

                Lexicon concerning The HOLY IMMORTALS
                (RAYS or WAYS of light). These Beings are Not
                to be confused with the Nine Silent Ones, or
                with the Astral Rays]

                PATH: "According to Zarathustra, there are
                six different WAYS the Supreme One has to
                make himself known to men. They are called
                also RAYS of light from the Supreme. They are
                spoken of at times AS IF they were personalities
                --- 'Amesh-spenta' --- HOLY IMMORTALS."

                NOTE: The first Three represent the Male
                Principle; the next Three represent the Female
                Principle, of the Divine.

                "They are:
                1) Asa-Vahista, the Supreme Will, manifested
                in the world.

                2) Vohu-Mano, meaning good mind, divine wisdom,
                pure-mindedness.

                3) Khashathra-Vairya, all creative, all sustaining
                power.

                devotion.

                5) Haurvatat, absolute wholeness, perfection,
                spirituality.

                6) Ameretatat, immortal life, freedom from death or
                dissolution.

                *7) Ahura-Mazda, the seven-fold Lord.

                *8) Sraosha, this Ray of the Divine One is something
                that can be heard... this is the Shabd Dhun of Santon
                ki Shikaha... it is the AUDIBLE LIFE STREAM of the Saints.

                These [first] six represent both the maternal and paternal
                qualities of God, the first three the fatherly and the last
                [next] three the motherly nature of the Surpreme. If we
                add to these six the great central figure of Ahura-Mazda,
                we have the SEVEN-fold Lord, as taught by the prophet

                that the Supreme SUGMAD has to make ITSELF
                known to man; absolute, wholeness, perfection,
                and spirituality.

                6) AMERETATAT, One of the six RAYS of light
                from the Divine; immortal life, freedom from
                death or dissolution.

                *7) AMESHSPENTA, Means; HOLY IMMORTALS;
                the six WAYS, or RAYS of light from the Divine,
                that the Supreme SUGMAD has to make ITSELF
                known to man.

                8) SRASOSHA, The *EIGHTH RAY or WAY the
                Supreme SUGMAD has of making ITSELF known
                to man; the ECK, that which can be heard, the
                audible life stream."

                NOTE: See where Twitchell mentions the *Fifth and
                *Eight Rays or Ways in their descriptions. Also, in
                The Path of the Masters *"Amesh-spenta" --- Holy
                Immortals is mentioned in referring to ALL of the
                Rays or Ways, but P.T. alters the spelling and uses
                this term as the 7th Ray or Way and as a substitution
                for AHURA-MAZDA!

                BTW- It's interesting that Twitchell doesn't mention
                Ahura-Mazda in his ECKankar Dictionary, but Klemp
                does mention it in his EK Lexicon on page 5.

                "Ahura Mazda. A name used in ancient Persia for
                the state of Godhood; Zoroaster's name for God."

                Here's more from Klemp's EK Lexicon:

                "Zarathustra. See Zoroaster" (pg.241)

                "Zoroaster. The Persian Avatar who taught Soul
                Travel almost six hundred years before the coming
                of Christ and his followers." (pg.243)

                Now let's see what Twitchell said:

                "ZARATHUSTRA, The Persian Sage who was one
                of the MASTERS of the ANCIENT ORDER of the
                VAIRAGI lived hundreds of years B.C." (pg.159)

                WOW! ANOTHER ECK MASTER!!! But Wait!

                "ZOROASTER, The Persian Avatar who taught
                Soul Travel some few hundred years before the
                coming of Christ, and his followers."

                I guess that Twitchell didn't realize they were one
                and the same. Still, P.T. was the Mahanta wasn't
                he? But, is Klemp really the Mahanta?

                Okay, let's now compare Klemp's 1998 ECK Lexicon
                to the approved 1986 printing of Twitchell's ECKankar
                Dictionary and to the info in the 1939 copyright of
                Julian P. Johnson's "The Path of the Masters."

                BTW- In what year did Klemp become the "FULL"
                Mahanta?

                ************************************************

                Klemp's 1998 "The ECKankar LexiCON:"

                1) "Asha-Vahista. The FIRST of six RAYS of
                light from the Divine; the supreme will manifested
                in the world." (pg.12)

                2) "Vohu-Mano. The SECOND of the six RAYS
                of light from the Divine; the good mind, Divine,
                Wisdom, pure mindedness." (pg.225)

                3) "Khashathra-Vairya. The THIRD of the six
                WAYS the supreme SUGMAD has to make
                Itself known to man; one of the six RAYS
                of light from the Divine known as the Amesha
                Spentas; the all creative, all sustaining power."
                (pg.114)

                4) "Armaiti. The FOURTH of the six RAYS of
                light from the Divine; immortal life, freedom
                from death or dissolution." (pg.11)

                5) "Haurvatat. The FIFTH of six RAYS of light
                or WAYS that the SUGMAD has to make
                Itself known to man; absolute, wholeness,
                perfection, and SPIRITUALITY." (pgs.86-87)

                6) "Ameretat. The SIXTH of the six RAYS of
                light from the Divine; immortal life, freedom
                from death or dissolution." (pg.8)

                *NOTE: Klemp changed the spelling from
                Ameretatat to Ameretat. from both sources.
                Also, Klemp repeats the definition for the
                FOURTH and SIXTH RAYS!

                *7) "Amesha Spentas. Holy immortals; the
                six WAYS, or RAYS of light, from the Divine,
                that the Supreme SUGMAD has to make
                Itself known to man." (pg.8)

                *8) "Sraosha. In the Far Country, another
                name for the ECK, that which can be heard,
                the Audible Life Stream." (pg.200)

                It's interesting how speed reading reduced
                Twitchell's comprehension since he missed
                the 7th and 8th additions to the Six Rays or
                Ways. Klemp, of course, copied the info and
                decided to do his own alterations.

                This is just more proof of ECKankar's fraud!

                Here's a side-by-side comparison of the
                spellings of the *AMESH-SPENTA -- HOLY
                IMMORTALS the Six (plus Two) RAYS and WAYS :

                The Path (1939)---PT (1973&1986)-------HK (1998)
                Asa-Vahista..............Asa-Vahista..............Asha-Vahista
                Vohu-Mano...............Vohu-Mano................Vohu-Mano
                Khashathra-Vairya..Khashathra-Vairya...Khashathra-Vairya
                Spenta-Armaiti.........Spenta-Armaiti.............*Armaiti
                Haurvatat....................*Haurvata...................Haurvatat
                Ameretatat.................Ameretatat..................*Ameretat
                *Ahura-Mazda.........*Ameshspenta...........*Amesha Spentas
                Sraosha.......................*Srasosha.....................Sraosha

                Notice that Klemp's rewrite matches "The Path
                of the Masters" version more than Twitchell's,
                but goes against the other two on "Ameretat!"

                ECKists should reread PT's EK Dictonary
                and HK's EK Lexicon and compare the two!
