How Do ECKists Rationalize?
- ECKankar teaches that the 1st Initiation
will come in a dream on the "inner."
However, the EK Master that appears,
and gives this initiation, is seldom Klemp!
Thus, most ECKists are Initiated by
a Master other than Klemp and, thus,
tend to look to him, or her, for inner
BTW- Except for the 2nd Initiation, all
Secret Words (mantras) are received on
the "inner," and usually at one's initiation
ceremony. The EK initiation rite is somewhat
similar to that of Eastern religions. When
receiving an initiation (mantra) in TM one
gives the initiator fruit (oranges or apples)
as an offering to the gods or devas. It is
wrapped in a clean white handkerchief,
white rice is also offered up, incense is
burned, and prayers are chanted. ECKists
are told to never burn incense at ECK Centers
or when doing their Spiritual Exercises (S.E.)
ECKists view Out-Of-Body Experiences
over the written word, and yet they read,
memorize, listen to, and quote Klemp's or
Twitchell's "words" constantly. Mental Focus
and the Reading of the Master's "Works" is
even considered a Discipline.
Klemp has kept things simple for people.
His message is down-to-earth and is simplified
with "common language" for better understanding.
However, if things are so simplified for better
understanding why are initiations (i.e. spiritual
growth) Slowed Down under Klemp? Are Klemp's
chelas "slow" and Not all that advanced as well?
Be Skeptical! New ECKists are told to be skeptical
and "prove it" to oneself.
However, before too long, these newbies learn to
stop asking questions and to accept things until
one can prove or disprove them. They are, also,
told to take it to the "Inner." However, if the "inner
experience" goes far beyond one's initiation level
then it is said to be false or coming from an "Astral"
One must learn their place within the RESA Hierarchy.
No longer are ECKists permitted to skip initiations.
However, if one is a professional and has good
management, leadership, and speaking skills, or
are a close friend of the RESA, they will be promoted
before someone more spiritually "aware." After all,
those Guidelines and Leadership Books, and trainings,
and requirements for positions, as well as, the RESA
police and ESC investigations into H.I. behavior are
due to chelas Not being of a "Higher" consciousness!
Some ECKists, and non-ECKists, have experiences
with the ECK Masters. Of course, these same non-ECKists
will, also, have "experiences" with Jesus and others.
Except, Jesus will strangely becomes Gopal Das! It
doesn't matter that other believers of other religions
have the same, if not more and better, experiences
with their Masters, Prophets, and Saints. ECKists have
experiences with these entities too, except, Jesus or
Buddha, or whomever, always miraculously becomes
an ECK Master in disguise! Maybe Rebazar is actually
Jesus in disguise rather than vice versa!
ECKankar never puts down other religions. However,
Klemp does put them down in "Autobiography of a
Modern Prophet" on page 385. Klemp states that all
other religions worship either the 2nd or 4th Plane
God. In ECKankar, the 2nd and 4th Plane "GOD" is
known as the KAL or Negative Force. In the ECK Holy
Books (The Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad Books 1 & 2) the
KAL is also defined as the Devil and Satan. Thus,
according to Klemp and ECKankar, all other religions
worship SATAN (the 2nd or 4th Plane God)!
Does anybody have something to add?
