      Hello All,
      I thought I'd give some details
      as to how this book was put
      together (written).

      This is from the "Introduction"
      pages vi-vii:

      "Patti Simpson, one of Paul's
      earliest chelas (students),
      dedicated assistant, and supporter,
      presented Sri Darwin Gross
      with many of Paul's personal
      tapes. Some of these transcribed
      material makes up the section
      entitled 'Difficulties of Becoming
      the Living ECK Master.'

      [BTW- Some of the material in
      the book came from the transcriptions
      of audio tapes made during a
      three-day seminar in July, 1971]

      Anya Foos-Graber, another of
      Paul's devoted Initiates, made
      available the tapes of the last
      meeting Paul held with several
      Initiates just hours before his
      translation. 'The Last Words Of
      Sri Paul Twitchell In Cincinnati'
      comprise excerpts of these tape
      transcripts [09/17/1971].

      It was appropriate that Paulji's
      Mystic World articles be included,
      for this personal and private
      publication continues to be the
      the Living ECK Master's written
      contact with chelas of ECKANKAR.
      These ageless words of truth serve
      as a compilation of the spiritual
      principles that makes up the
      foundation of ECKANKAR from
      Its modern-day stirrings in the
      mid-1960s to the present."

      Thus, why is it that Klemp will
      Not have this historic book reprinted,
      especially, when Eckankar does
      it's own publishing!

      ******
      Here's a comparison between
      how Twitchell describes YAUBL
      SACABI and how Klemp describes
      him. See the differences! Paul
      makes Yaubl look old and worn
      and Klemp makes Yaubl seem
      viril and youthful! Of course,
      ECKists want to believe the
      more updated version, except,
      how can they explain Klemp's
      older looks?

      PT: "... about five feet eight or
      ten... sort of a square figure...
      doesn't walk upright... 2,000-
      3,000 years old... his face is
      of a light color... has pale blue
      eyes... looks very ascetic...
      looks very old... walks slowly
      ... speaks in a high pitch...
      has very long slender hands...
      wears sort of a sandal, and a
      toga type gown..." [Difficulties,
      pgs 113-114]

      HK: "... a robust man...about
      average height... a sturdy
      specimen in a physical sense
      ...bald head...strong nose...
      thick neck... well-developed
      muscles in arms and chest
      outline a capable, rugged
      appearance." [Those Wonderful
      ECK Masters, pgs. 133 & 145]

      ******
      Here're the Timelines from
      HK's "Behind the Scenes with
      Paul Twitchell" (on Eckankar.org)
      and from PT's audio interview
      "Difficulties Of Becoming the LEM"
      [DOBTLEM]:

      First, Klemp gives Twitchell's
      birthdate as 10/22/1908. The
      month and day is found in the
      EK Lexicon (Oct. 22) and the
      year is found on the Copyright
      page of the Combined Shariyats
      (1908).

      From PAGE 48 of "Difficulties:"

      *At age 16 (1924) PT claims to
      have traveled to Paris, France
      (where Montmartre is located)
      to visit his stepsister Kay-Dee
      (Katie) and then traveled to India
      to meet Sudar Singh.

      "We were just a few block away from
      MONTMARTRE, where all the famous
      artists were living... Edgar Degas was
      the last that I knew of, Katie was very
      close to him because she was studying
      under one of his students."

      "WE met with Sudar Singh who was the
      leading advocate of Soul Travel. From
      Paris we decided that we would go back
      to his little ashram, which was five miles
      above ALLAHABAD, on what they call Old
      Canteen Road..." [So, from Paris, France
      (Kentucky) they went to Allahabad, India!]

      "After I had left India, came home, I was
      then about sixteen. I had a year or so to
      do some work in order to finish my degree."


      "BASIC FACTS"

      *Klemp claims, on Eckankar.org,
      that Twitchell at age 27 (1935) was
      'EXAGGERATING' and 'TWISTING FACTS'
      to get into Who's Who in Kentucky
      and that PT had never done much.

      Thus, there was No trip to India,
      after Paris, to meet Sudar at "age 16"
      in 1924! [pg. 48, "Difficulties]

      http://www.eckankar.org/Masters/Peddar/hisStory.html


      BTW- Marman claims that Twit was
      actually visiting his stepsister in Paris,
      Kentucky versus Paris, France. However,
      it's obvious that Twitchell was referring
      to being in France versus Kentucky
      because he mentioned "Montmartre."
      Thus, it's clear that PT lied about traveling
      to India, after Paris, at age 16 (1924).


      *Twitchell states that he met
      Rebazar in 1947 on his "FIRST"
      visit to India and that KIRPAL
      SINGH was dead, and that he
      received the 7th INITIATION.
      by Rebazar." Then, PT mentions
      that on his "SECOND" visit that
      he "FINISHED" his INITIATIONS
      under RT. ["Difficulties", pgs.
      70-71]


      "Well, anyway, in about 1947,
      it was right shortly after the
      Indians nation, India, received
      their freedom from England
      and then became a nation...
      I went over to Darjeeling...
      right on the Sikkim border...
      I went up there at the time
      after being over in Allahabad,
      and there wasn't much left
      there after SUDAR SINGH HAD
      PASSED AWAY.

      But then I went there and I'd
      been told that I would find the
      ECK Master Rebazar Tarzs, I've
      got something about that in
      one of my books, I think it's
      Introduction to ECK in which
      I have it. I told about meeting
      him up in that part of the world.

      I STAYED THERE FOR QUITE
      SOME TIME WITH HIM [Rebazar],
      SIX TO SEVEN MONTHS, BEING
      TAUGHT AND LEARNING THE
      WORKS OF ECK. And then I
      was told to come back because
      then I would start into the true
      works of ECKANKAR.

      Now, HE INITIATED ME THERE.
      I had already BEEN INITIATED
      BY SUDAR SINGH, THE SAME
      AS EVERYBODY ELSE, THE
      SECOND INITIATION.

      AND I GOT THE THIRD AND
      THE FOURTH. I WENT UP
      THROUGH about THE SEVENTH
      AT THIS PARTICULAR TIME.

      Then he [Rebazar] moved
      across over into Kashmir,
      up in the Hindu Kush Mountains,
      and later, BUT NOT ON THIS
      TRIP, I FOLLOWED HIM UP THERE
      AND I GOT THE FINISH OF MY
      INITIATIONS."


      *Klemp mentions that Twit met
      with Rebazar in 1951 on his
      "SECOND" trip to India.

      "LOOKING AT THE PAST FOR
      SPIRITUAL LESSONS"

      *Klemp states that Twitchell's
      "FIRST" trip to India was in 1935
      (age 27). This "SECOND" trip is
      when Twitchell claims to have
      "FINISHED" his Initiations under
      Rebazar. Thus, PT is basically
      saying he got the 12th from RT
      in 1951!

      http://www.eckankar.org/Masters/Peddar/man.html


      "EARLY COMMITMENTS"

      *From 1950-1955 Twitchell
      was a chela of Swami Premananda.


      "THE CLIFF HANGER" &
      "TOUCHING THE FACE OF GOD"

      *In1955 Twitchell was initiated
      by Kirpal Singh (aka "Sudar" Singh).
      Kirpal was the spiritual leader and
      living Master of Ruhani Satsang. Paul
      was associated with Kirpal for 10
      years and was in contact with him
      concerning PT's "The Tiger's Fang"
      manuscript in June 1966. Kirpal died
      in 1974 (three years after Twitchell).

      *During this time frame (1961)
      PT was also associated with
      L. Ron Hubbard and Scientology.

      http://www.eckankar.org/Masters/Peddar/hisStory.html


      *PT, also, had Gail initiated
      by Kirpal on his second visit
      to the U.S. around 1963 or later.



      "STRUGGLE FOR MASTERSHIP"

      *Kirpal returned Twitchell's
      "The Tiger's Fang" manuscript
      circa June, 1966 after a "falling
      out" centering around PT's
      'exaggerations' and the 'twisting
      of facts' involving Paul's
      travels/experiences to the
      inner planes. PT was trying
      to exalt himself to great
      heights in order to have Kirpal
      give him the authority to give
      initiations in the U.S. This
      "authority" would have given
      PT the validity he was seeking
      in order to break away from
      Kirpal and start his own sect
      of Ruhani Satsang.

      http://www.eckankar.org/Masters/Peddar/writings.html


      ******
      Here's some detailed info on
      Rebazar and PT's initiations,
      but first a look at how/where/
      when Paul studied and learned
      how to control the "group mind."

      "My life of Several Years in
      Washington D.C., was uneventful
      in the fact that I didn't do any-
      thing great. I didn't do anything
      wonderful..."

      [Paul was just a "normal" liar
      during his transitional period.]

      "I could come and go in the
      embassies fairly well as much
      as I wanted to and got to know
      people of this nature and to be
      able to study them, and find out
      that they were people who only
      had actually, a tremendous amount
      of knowledge about How Group
      Minds Work, How National Minds
      Work in a Country, and have a
      tremendous knowledge about
      relations, Human Relations."
      [pg. 68]


      See, how Paul is studying the
      "group mind" to find ways to
      control the masses. Sounds
      like what a Black Magician
      would do!
      ******



      Also, isn't it strange that Klemp
      mentions Kirpal's name about
      15 times and 970th LEM Sudar's
      name about 4 times in this info
      "Behind the Scenes with Paul
      Twitchell!"

      However, How could Paul have
      gotten the 7th Initiation from
      Rebazar, in India, in 1947 and
      then become an initiate of Kirpal
      Singh during the timeline of
      having written "The Tiger's Fang?"
      Kirpal returned the manuscript
      to Paul circa 1966.

      Plus, Kirpal initiated Paul in
      1955 on his first visit to the
      U.S. and Gail was initiated
      by Kirpal on his next visit
      to the U.S.! Why would Paul
      want an initiation by Kirpal,
      in 1955, if PT was a 7th
      Initiate in Eckankar in 1947
      and a 12th (finished) in 1951?

      Thus, we have another reason
      as to why Klemp and Company
      doesn't want this "historic"
      document reprinted!

      Also, why did Paul need to
      "PHYSICALLY RETURN" to India
      and climb the Hindu Kush Mountains
      to revisit Rebazar, after receiving
      the SEVENTH INITIATION (in 1947),
      in order to "finish" his initiations
      with Rebazar.

      Twit states, on page 71, about
      an experience with Rebazar (in
      1947) while sitting under a shade
      tree:

      "... when I was staying at the
      Ashram in ALLAHABAD which
      belonged to Sudar Singh...
      I'll say something here about
      Rebazar Tarzs... I THOUGHT
      that he had MANIFESTED himself
      because I just looked up and
      and there he was walking towards
      me... I FELT that he'd MANIFESTED
      himself because I had averted
      my eyes from the path which
      was directly in front of me, for
      just a matter of moments as
      anyone would do if they look
      around."

      Now, Why would Twit need to
      travel to India in his physical
      body a "second time" if Rebazar
      could "manifest" himself anywhere?

      Wasn't "Dialogues with the Master"
      dictated to Twit at night, in his
      bedroom, in the U.S., via Rebazar
      physically "manifesting" himself!

      See! It's all a bunch of lies and
      Klemp is part of it and the cover-up!

      But, then again, Klemp doesn't
      want to ruin the good thing he's
      got going on, and he certainly
      doesn't want to give up the power
      trip he's on. It's cool to have
      thousands of people bow down
      before you, to get giddy and nervous
      in your presence and thinking
      Harry's "Higher" than the "God"
      of all of the other religions on
      earth!

      Can Eckists see the irony of,
      "My God is Bigger Than Yours!"




      In JULY, 1971 when Twitch
      was recounting these earlier
      experiences (that were later
      placed into this book) Paul
      was the "Full" Mahanta, and
      didn't have any problem with
      nor find any fault with his
      past behaviours. He had no
      regrets about it! To Twitchell
      the Navy was a joke and he
      was going to have some sport
      with them (manipulate them)
      and take it easy while they miss-
      placed his paperwork due, in
      part, to his passive/aggressive
      attitude toward "superior officers."

      PT: "... on setting my mind on
      something, it was going to work
      exactly my way. If I got into the
      service, I wasn't going to be
      bothered with this sort of thing,
      of going out there on the front
      line and fighting. I was going to
      find myself a nice, comfortable
      berth someplace and be kept
      there."

      "I found out so many times in
      dealing with thousands of people,
      that they never knew this. And
      this is one of the Acts of Power
      that all the Dictators and everybody
      else had found, BUT I was using
      it in My way and Not using it as
      a control over a great number of
      people, EXCEPT to keep Myself
      out of positions of danger."

      "... the higher echelon, or the
      superior officers, were always
      having a rough time with me
      because I never acted in accordance
      to what they expected of their
      enlisted personnel. I could block
      them and create all sorts of
      frustrations and problems for
      them which they never knew
      was happening, or they never
      laid the CAUSE to me. I could
      get the papers fumbled up on
      myself until one time they got
      me lost! ... this sort of thing
      had created a vacuum which
      I had set out to do, to create
      the confusion, and I was 'lost'
      between battalions."

      "... sometimes I'd go downtown,
      and sometimesI'd go to the
      canteen on the base, or I'd
      sleep or do something."

      "Well, life became sort of a
      'don't care' --happy-go-lucky--
      Easy Way of living sort of thing
      and everybody was having a big
      laugh, and all that sort of thing.
      So then I decided that I had to
      be an officer..."

      "I knew that if anybody was Never
      physically fit for sea duty, that
      was me, because Psychologically
      I didn't want to get shot at. So
      I set the wheels in motion Behind
      The Scenes and the first thing
      I did, I went over to see the man
      who swore in new officers... which
      should have been the last thing
      on the list of doing. So he swore
      me in and there was nothing that
      they could do about it because
      I flunked my physical examination;
      I got out of most of them, but I
      flunked what I did take and made
      them awfully mad, but they says,
      'I don't know what to do.' ... And
      instead of going to sea, they started
      me in a training school..."

      "And all of this thing was in motion
      working for me, this Behind The Scene
      thing that I was talking about that
      I had learned to control my own
      destiny." [pgs. 52-57]

      Thus, we can see how a ConMan
      like Twit thinks and behaves even
      during wartime. It's all about him
      and having an angle. And, is it a
      coincidence that Twit mentions
      the term "Behind the Scenes" twice
      and that Klemp has a section on
      Eckankar.org that is titled "Behind
      the Scenes" with Paul Twitchell.

      BTW- Here are excerpts from the
      MR. ECK story (pgs. 94-96):

      "... I was on a parking lot getting
      ready to pull out, when some gentleman,
      long, lanky, looked like he had been
      dried up like a bean pole and a little
      hat on his head, rushed over and
      viewed my license plate which had
      nothing but 'ECK' on it; that is all,
      no numbers or anything. And he says,
      'Are you Mr. ECK?' And I very cautiously
      answered him, 'Why, yes, of course.'
      Which meaning, that of course as the
      MAHANTA, the Living ECK Master,
      I'm Mr. ECK, yes. He says, 'Y'know,
      I married... or rather my wife's maiden
      name was ECK, Amy ECK.' I says, 'Well,
      isn't that wonderful!' He says, 'Yes,
      it is.'

      [So, since the Mahanta is the ECK
      Paul didn't really lie to this guy.
      See how Twitchell rationalizes
      and makes it all up as he goes
      along. BTW -I shortened the
      dialogue because Paul goes on
      and on.]


      "... He just went away in a very
      blurred manner, his mind was only
      thinking of the communication and
      the warm relationship that he had
      suddenly struck up with this stranger
      here who was actually in a way, kidding
      him...."

      "Well, this is one of the funny things
      about the Astral Plane and the Physical
      Plane because the Astral Plane will do
      a lot of this in the sense of Not, it's
      Not a Deceit or anything BUT it is arousing
      the emotions and the emotions overcome
      common sense on the intellectual side
      and we don't have any answer to give
      when somebody makes us recall an
      incident as what would be in this,
      projecting ourselves in the future to
      say what we would think of it."

      PT's comments in this book
      show the foundations of
      deceit behind Eckankar.

      I had a message that we
      need to 'let go and move
      on.' Well, I will when Eckists
      do! When those I helped to
      bring into the EK org. recognize
      the lies, quit, and move on
      then I will too!

      Good one, Prometheus!

      "Diff" is a great book because it
      reveals a lot about Twitch, in his
      own words. I really do think that
      subconsciously, Twitch wanted
      people to see that ekult was just
      one big scam, sort of a practical
      joke, and he wanted to be recognized
      for his criminal genius.

      I always thought his claims about
      the number of books he'd read were
      a gross exaggeration. It's humanly
      impossible. And his claims that he
      could "read" a book by sleeping on it -
      well, Edgar Cayce could do that, and
      Twitch stole the idea. Just like he
      referred to Cayce when he was caught
      giving the same expensive "eck-vidya"
      readings to the same people, and threw
      a bit of a Wizard of Oz "Pay no attention
      to the man behind the curtain" hissy-fit
      and told people he had "masterly" reasons
      for the duplicate readings that lowbies
      couldn't understand - and he whined
      that surely Cayce had made some mistakes
      in his "readings", too.

      I forget where Twitch wrote that he was
      going to rewrite history, but I remember
      posting the quote a long time ago. And,
      is it in "Diff" where Twitch writes about
      running into a derelict-type one night,
      who was looking for "Mr. Eck", and had
      that lightbulb moment and decided that
      *he* would be "Mr. Eck"?

      And the one where he's walking on the
      beach feeling sorry for himself and looking
      at his failed life....moaning & groaning
      "why me"....when aha, he realizes it's
      because he's been in training to become
      Master of the Universe!!

      Puh-leeze!!!

      If you read Twitch's own thoughts & words,
      and delete all the purloined "spiritual" stuff,
      he truly reveals himself.

      Here's a 1971 comment from PT
      from page 28:

      "I knew that I myself was not the
      same as that child that was next
      to me. I knew that I was superior
      in my mentality, I knew that I was
      superior to the teacher in all my
      knowledge, in all my understanding."

      Here's what appeared earlier in
      the Oct.-Nov.-Dec. 1970 Mystic
      World article (page 244):

      "Paul does not appear to like the
      intellectual person. He says they
      are all the same, making elaborate
      little plans. They give fussy attention
      to small perfections and when something
      goes wrong because of their inborn
      blindness, they scream frantically
      for help from someone else to act
      in their behalf--to do something
      for them."

      Thus, it seems we have another PT
      contradiction or a self-loathing!

      BTW- Since, Klemp is listed in the
      "International Who's Who of INTELLECTUALS,
      ninth edition" is Paul (the original
      Mahanta) giving a reading to Klemp
      via the ECK-Vidya, or is this proof
      that Klemp Would Not have been
      Paul's choice to become the LEM/M!

      Here's more of what Paul has to say
      about his intellect and how to "read"
      books (pg. 30):

      "Anyway, this was one of the things
      I'm trying to show you that where
      I had a SUPERIOR MENTALITY, INTELLECT,
      over these other people, and I got
      it in the way that I told you one time
      from SLEEPING ON BOOKS, and SOMETIMES
      READING THEM and sometimes it
      just came natural to me... This
      was a part of that which we call the
      mastership or the training of the
      ECK mastership."

      More on what Paul has to say about
      reading (pg. 98):

      "It is said now that a reader who is
      a good reader, who enjoys reading,
      can read 7,000 books a year normally.
      I have proven this out myself because
      when I was in Seattle I READ ABOUT
      35,000 BOOKS, OR I DON'T SAY THAT
      I PARTICULARLY READ THEM WORD
      FOR WORD. I WENT THROUGH 35,000
      BOOKS of every subject you can know
      which built me a background for a
      certain bit of the work I have today...
      when I was in Washington, D.C. for
      several years, I READ about 15,000
      books in the Congressional Library...
      in New York. I MAY HAVE READ 5,000
      or something like that when I was
      there for one year in 1946."

      Well, as we can see Paul is Full of
      B.S. He sounds like the ConMan
      that he was and shows us that at
      the most he either "skimmed" these
      35,000 books, or is lying about
      this too! But, in any case he does
      show us how he created the
      "background" for Eckankar as
      "a certain bit of the work I have
      today."

      Here's more PT comments (1971)
      that tend to contradict the use of
      skim-reading and the sleeping on
      books for "chelas" with regard to
      The ECK Discourses (pgs.196-197):

      "They lack a good understanding
      as to what is taking place as they
      study these. Often they become
      entangled in trying to figure out
      a syntax, notice a typographical
      error, or READ QUICKLY FOR
      INFORMATION. They tie themselves
      up in all sorts of LOGIC, GRAMMAR,
      and other sorts of opinions and
      SOME READ QUICKLY and say,
      'There is nothing new in that.'

      This is nothing new because EKists,
      still, tend to fill-in the blanks with
      their imaginations when the info
      comes up short (too simple), is
      redundant, lacks details, and seems
      illogical (unbelievable, untrue).

      "The Second Factor is that the
      student who is in A HURRY FOR
      INFORMATION and engages in
      SPEED READING or JUMPS TO
      CONCLUSIONS on the basis of
      a few paragraphs HASTILY
      SCAMMED, misses the most
      important benefits of all."

      It's no wonder that Eckists
      still get confused with the
      "do as I say, not as I do"
      attitude and rules that all
      religious leaders use!

      BTW- What are "the most
      important benefits of all,"
      for the chela, that PT is
      mentioning in this last
      sentence? Aren't the Higher
      EK Initiations the most
      important benefits of all!

      PT's Living Saviour Origin-

      PT realized that people needed
      a living idol to adore and had
      this Mystic World article written
      in his behalf:

      "But few ever connect him up with
      being a holy man, the MAHANTA,
      the Living ECK Master. There is a
      need of the people to believe in
      the magic of a saviour, and Sri Paul
      Twitchell knows this and acts out
      the part." [April-May-June 1971,
      Difficulties of Becoming the LEM,
      pg. 250]

      However, in order to become a
      "Saviour" Paul had to have had
      a Virgin Birth (this is SOP). The
      following comes from pages 251-
      253 of Difficulties of Becoming
      the Living ECK Master:

      "Ramaj, viceroy for Sat Nam...
      Rebazar Tarzs... Gopal Das..and
      Yaubl Sacabi... met to discuss
      the birth of the coming Avatar
      for the Twentieth Century,
      Peddar Zaskq. Born in the
      Caucasian mountains during
      the seventeenth century...
      Given several years in the art
      of silence and Darkness he gained
      enlightenment in preparation
      for his return to the Twentieth
      Century. [HK should take note
      of this next statement] When
      the time came for his demise,
      he passed away still looking
      the same youthful appearance
      yet beyond the normal age of
      man....

      This time Peddar Zaskq was
      born on a Mississippi River
      packet enroute to New Orleans.
      The miraculous birth took place
      just below the city of Natchez,
      Mississippi just below a stock
      farm (manger)... There appeared
      a Blue Carnation in a vase on
      a night table by THE mother's
      bed... It was immediately
      arranged for him to be given
      a home in which to be raised.
      His foster parents raised him
      in a small southern river town
      [Paducah, Kentucky]. He adopted
      their name and became known
      as Paul Twitchell." [end of quote]


      We, also, have Twit saying this
      as an excuse for his lies and self-
      promotion [pg. 126]:

      "So therefore we got to be, to
      place ourselves in the mainstream,
      which I hope I do and I have to say,
      unless I make myself a Historical
      Figure, the struggle of ECK for
      survival is useless. And the question
      of that comes up, well, why? Why
      do you make such a statement as
      that? Every man who sets out to
      do something in this world, unless
      he made himself a Historical Figure,
      then he never again is remembered
      except by a few when he passes."


      PT's Paris (Kentucky) Story is
      on page 254 and comes from
      an article in The Mystic World
      July-Aug.-Sept, 1971:

      "The rest of his story is told in
      fragments of his first visit to
      Paris to be with his stepsister,
      who was in training to be an
      artist. It was here that he first
      met Sudar Singh, an ECK Master,
      and followed him to India with
      his stepsister to study ECK..."

      More about "Paris" (Kentucky)
      from pages 38-40:

      "Later I would be able to go to
      Paris to see my sister who was
      studying art at one of the art
      studios Over There. She was
      under an instructor who had
      studied under Degas... who was
      a very famous portrait painter
      of the opera and the ballet during
      his day in PARIS."

      Thus, we can clearly see that Twit
      was lying and trying to deceive us
      into thinking this was Paris, France
      (not Paris, Kentucky) since he's
      including Degas in the story.

      "I suppose that that's where she
      got her ability to paint figures
      because she had COPIED Degas
      time and time again... Well, in
      living in Paris, I was quite happy
      at the time when I was OVER there
      with my SISTER, my stepsister,
      Katie." [Twit would call her Kay-Dee]

      "...we took advantage of this freedom,
      because for some reason the Europeans
      seemed to have an affection for young
      people, more than they had in the
      western countries, particularly at that
      time." [Here, PT has without a doubt
      connected-the-dots for us by saying
      that he was in Europe and not Kentucky]

      "We were just a few block away from
      Montmartre, where all the famous
      artists were living... Edgar Degas was
      the last that I knew of, Katie was very
      close to him because she was studying
      under one of his students." [Was Degas
      even living in this year? What a liar!]

      "WE met with Sudar Singh who was the
      leading advocate of Soul Travel. From
      Paris we decided that we would go back
      to his little ashram, which was five miles
      above ALLAHABAD, on what they call Old
      Canteen Road..." [So, from Paris, France
      (Kentucky) they went to Allahabad, India!]

      "After I had left India, came home, I was
      then about sixteen. I had a year or so to
      do some work in order to finish my degree."
      [page 48]

      Note: Klemp gives Paul's birthdate as
      Oct. 22, 1908. Thus, if Paul was 16
      this was 1924. However, Klemp states
      on eckankar.org that at age 27 (1935)
      Paul was trying to get into "Who's Who
      in Kentucky" by "exaggerating" and
      "twisting facts" and that he'd never
      traveled outside of the United States
      at that time. Therefore, Paul is still,
      as the M/LEM, lying about these events
      in 1971! And, PT was never in Paris,
      France prior to 1965 and never traveled
      to India (from Paris) with his sister to
      meet Sudar Singh at age 16.

      Here's another PT tidbit [his last words
      from Sept. 17, 1971] that tells a lot:

      "Now, a lot of the impressions that I first
      set out in my first work, I'm having to go
      back and redo these things and try to
      correct them." [page 135]

      Hello All, I thought I d bring this info back for another look since Klemp hasn t seen fit to reprint this historic book of Twitchell s. And, I made some
      Message 2 of 2 , Nov 25, 2009

        Hello All,
        I thought I'd bring this info
        back for another look since
        Klemp hasn't seen fit to reprint
        this historic book of Twitchell's.
        And, I made some slight
        revisions and did a Timeline.
        BTW-I didn't include the year
        Gail was initiated by Kirpal Singh
        (on his second visit to the U.S.).
        I couldn't readily find this info
        and didn't want to take a guess
        at the 1960's date.

        This is from the "Introduction"
        pages vi-vii:

        "Patti Simpson, one of Paul's
        earliest chelas (students),
        dedicated assistant, and supporter,
        presented Sri Darwin Gross
        with many of Paul's personal
        tapes. Some of these transcribed
        material makes up the section
        entitled 'Difficulties of Becoming
        the Living ECK Master.'


        Thus, much of the material in
        this book, such as, "The Last Words
        of Paul Twitchell in Cincinnati,"
        are the transcriptions of audio
        tapes "donated by Patti Simpson
        and Anya Foos-Graber."


        "It was appropriate that Paulji's
        Mystic World articles be included,
        for this personal and private
        publication continues to be the
        the Living ECK Master's written
        contact with chelas of ECKANKAR.
        These ageless words of truth serve
        as a compilation of the spiritual
        principles that makes up the
        foundation of ECKANKAR from
        Its modern-day stirrings in the
        mid-1960s to the present."

        Chelas have to wonder why is it
        that Klemp Will Not have this historic
        book reprinted, especially, when
        Eckankar does it's own publishing!
        What is there to fear... the Truth?

        ******
        Here's a comparison between
        how Twitchell describes YAUBL
        SACABI and how Klemp describes
        him. See the differences! Paul
        makes Yaubl look old and worn
        and Klemp makes Yaubl seem
        viril and youthful! Of course,
        ECKists want to believe the
        more updated version, except,
        how can they explain Klemp's
        older looks?

        PT: "... about five feet eight or
        ten... sort of a square figure...
        doesn't walk upright... 2,000-
        3,000 years old... his face is
        of a light color... has pale blue
        eyes... looks very ascetic...
        looks very old... walks slowly
        ... speaks in a high pitch...
        has very long slender hands...
        wears sort of a sandal, and a
        toga type gown..." [Difficulties,
        pgs 113-114]

        HK: "... a robust man...about
        average height... a sturdy
        specimen in a physical sense
        ...bald head...strong nose...
        thick neck... well-developed
        muscles in arms and chest
        outline a capable, rugged
        appearance." [Those Wonderful
        ECK Masters, pgs. 133 & 145]

        ******
        Here're the Timelines from
        HK's "Behind the Scenes with
        Paul Twitchell" (on Eckankar.org)
        and from PT's audio interview
        "Difficulties Of Becoming the LEM"
        [DOBTLEM]:

        First, Klemp gives Twitchell's
        birthdate as 10/22/1908. The
        month and day is found in the
        EK Lexicon (Oct. 22) and the
        year is found on the Copyright
        page of the Combined Shariyats
        (1908).

        From PAGE 48 of "Difficulties:"

        *At age 16 (1924) PT claims to
        have traveled to Paris, France
        (where Montmartre is located)
        to visit his stepsister Kay-Dee
        (Katie) and then traveled to India
        to meet Sudar Singh.

        "We were just a few block away from
        MONTMARTRE, where all the famous
        artists were living... Edgar Degas was
        the last that I knew of, Katie was very
        close to him because she was studying
        under one of his students."

        "WE met with Sudar Singh who was the
        leading advocate of Soul Travel. From
        Paris we decided that we would go back
        to his little ashram, which was five miles
        above ALLAHABAD, on what they call Old
        Canteen Road..." [So, from Paris, France
        (Kentucky) they went to Allahabad, India!]

        "After I had left India, came home, I was
        then about sixteen. I had a year or so to
        do some work in order to finish my degree."


        "BASIC FACTS"

        *Klemp claims, on Eckankar.org,
        that Twitchell at age 27 (1935) was
        'EXAGGERATING' and 'TWISTING FACTS'
        to get into Who's Who in Kentucky
        and that PT had never done much.

        Thus, there was No trip to India,
        after Paris, to meet Sudar at "age 16"
        in 1924! [pg. 48, "Difficulties]

        http://www.eckankar.org/Masters/Peddar/hisStory.html


        BTW- Marman claims that Twit was
        actually visiting his stepsister in Paris,
        Kentucky versus Paris, France. However,
        it's obvious that Twitchell was referring
        to being in France versus Kentucky
        because he mentioned "Montmartre."
        Thus, it's clear that PT lied about traveling
        to India, after Paris, at age 16 (1924).


        *Twitchell states that he met
        Rebazar in 1947 on his "FIRST"
        visit to India and that KIRPAL
        SINGH was dead, and that he
        received the 7th INITIATION.
        by Rebazar." Then, PT mentions
        that on his "SECOND" visit that
        he "FINISHED" his INITIATIONS
        under RT. ["Difficulties", pgs.
        70-71]


        "Well, anyway, in about 1947,
        it was right shortly after the
        Indians nation, India, received
        their freedom from England
        and then became a nation...
        I went over to Darjeeling...
        right on the Sikkim border...
        I went up there at the time
        after being over in Allahabad,
        and there wasn't much left
        there after SUDAR SINGH HAD
        PASSED AWAY.

        But then I went there and I'd
        been told that I would find the
        ECK Master Rebazar Tarzs, I've
        got something about that in
        one of my books, I think it's
        Introduction to ECK in which
        I have it. I told about meeting
        him up in that part of the world.

        I STAYED THERE FOR QUITE
        SOME TIME WITH HIM [Rebazar],
        SIX TO SEVEN MONTHS, BEING
        TAUGHT AND LEARNING THE
        WORKS OF ECK. And then I
        was told to come back because
        then I would start into the true
        works of ECKANKAR.

        Now, HE INITIATED ME THERE.
        I had already BEEN INITIATED
        BY SUDAR SINGH, THE SAME
        AS EVERYBODY ELSE, THE
        SECOND INITIATION.

        AND I GOT THE THIRD AND
        THE FOURTH. I WENT UP
        THROUGH about THE SEVENTH
        AT THIS PARTICULAR TIME.

        Then he [Rebazar] moved
        across over into Kashmir,
        up in the Hindu Kush Mountains,
        and later, BUT NOT ON THIS
        TRIP, I FOLLOWED HIM UP THERE
        AND I GOT THE FINISH OF MY
        INITIATIONS."


        *Klemp mentions that Twit met
        with Rebazar in 1951 on his
        "SECOND" trip to India.

        "LOOKING AT THE PAST FOR
        SPIRITUAL LESSONS"

        *Klemp states that Twitchell's
        "FIRST" trip to India was in 1935
        (age 27). This "SECOND" trip is
        when Twitchell claims to have
        "FINISHED" his Initiations under
        Rebazar. Thus, PT is basically
        saying he got the 12th from RT
        in 1951!

        http://www.eckankar.org/Masters/Peddar/man.html


        "EARLY COMMITMENTS"

        *From 1950-1955 Twitchell
        was a chela of Swami Premananda.


        "THE CLIFF HANGER" &
        "TOUCHING THE FACE OF GOD"

        *In1955 Twitchell was initiated
        by Kirpal Singh (aka "Sudar" Singh).
        Kirpal was the spiritual leader and
        living Master of Ruhani Satsang. Paul
        was associated with Kirpal for 10
        years and was in contact with him
        concerning PT's "The Tiger's Fang"
        manuscript in June 1966. Kirpal died
        in 1974 (three years after Twitchell).

        *During this time frame (1961)
        PT was also associated with
        L. Ron Hubbard and Scientology.

        http://www.eckankar.org/Masters/Peddar/hisStory.html


        *PT, also, had Gail initiated
        by Kirpal on his second visit
        to the U.S. around 1963 or later.



        "STRUGGLE FOR MASTERSHIP"

        *Kirpal returned Twitchell's
        "The Tiger's Fang" manuscript
        circa June, 1966 after a "falling
        out" centering around PT's
        'exaggerations' and the 'twisting
        of facts' involving Paul's
        travels/experiences to the
        inner planes. PT was trying
        to exalt himself to great
        heights in order to have Kirpal
        give him the authority to give
        initiations in the U.S. This
        "authority" would have given
        PT the validity he was seeking
        in order to break away from
        Kirpal and start his own sect
        of Ruhani Satsang.

        ******
        Here's some detailed info on
        Rebazar and PT's initiations,
        but first a look at how/where/
        when Paul studied and learned
        how to control the "group mind."

        "My life of Several Years in
        Washington D.C., was uneventful
        in the fact that I didn't do any-
        thing great. I didn't do anything
        wonderful..."

        [Paul was just a "normal" liar
        during his transitional period.]

        "I could come and go in the
        embassies fairly well as much
        as I wanted to and got to know
        people of this nature and to be
        able to study them, and find out
        that they were people who only
        had actually, a tremendous amount
        of knowledge about How Group
        Minds Work, How National Minds
        Work in a Country, and have a
        tremendous knowledge about
        relations, Human Relations."
        [pg. 68]


        See, how Paul is studying the
        "group mind" to find ways to
        control the masses. Sounds
        like what a Black Magician
        would do!

        ............ A TIMELINE .............

        Page 48 "Difficulties," PT travels
        from "Paris" to India to meet Sudar
        for "second initiation" in 1924 at
        age 15-16.

        [Doug Marman states that Paul
        went to Paris, Kentucky and Not
        Paris, France. Thus, there was no
        visit to India to receive the Second
        Initiation from Sudar.]

        HK on Eckankar.org- PT in 1935
        age 27 was "exaggerating" and
        "twisting facts" and had never traveled
        far from home.

        Page 70 "Difficulties," PT in 1947
        travels to India on his "FIRST" visit.
        Sudar is dead (1937, pg. 45) and
        PT receives initiations 3-7 from
        Rebazar.

        Page 71 "Difficulties," PT "later"
        (1951 according to HK on
        Eckankar.org) on his "SECOND"
        trip to India "I got the FINISH (12th)
        of my initiations" from Rebazar.

        1950-1955 PT was initiated and
        involved with Swami Premanada.
        [Eckankar.org]

        1955-1965 PT was initiated and
        involved with Kirpal Singh and
        Ruhani Satsang.
        [Eckankar.org]

        1961 PT joined Scientology.
        [Eckankar.org]

        Circa June, 1966 Kirpal Singh
        returned PT's "The Tiger's Fang"
        manuscript to him.
        [Eckankar.org]

        One has to wonder if PT ever
        traveled to India prior to 1965
        and, thus, ever met Rebazar.
        It seems PT merely exaggerated
        and fictionalized the story about
        Rebazar and his initiations in
        order to give himself status.
        Therefore, PT didn't have the
        "divine authority" to give Darwin
        his initiations, and, thus, Klemp
        doesn't have valid ones either
        from DG or from the fictional
        Rebazar!


        *********************************
        Also, isn't it strange that Klemp
        mentions Kirpal's name about
        15 times and 970th LEM Sudar's
        name about 4 times in this info
        "Behind the Scenes with Paul
        Twitchell!"

        However, How could Paul have
        gotten the 7th Initiation from
        Rebazar, in India, in 1947 and
        then become an initiate of Kirpal
        Singh during the timeline of
        having written "The Tiger's Fang?"
        Kirpal returned the manuscript
        to Paul circa 1966.

        Plus, Kirpal initiated Paul in
        1955 on his first visit to the
        U.S. and Gail was initiated
        by Kirpal on his next visit
        to the U.S.! Why would Paul
        want an initiation by Kirpal,
        in 1955, if PT was a 7th
        Initiate in Eckankar in 1947
        and a 12th (finished) in 1951?

        Thus, we have another reason
        as to why Klemp and Company
        doesn't want this "historic"
        document reprinted!

        Also, why did Paul need to
        "PHYSICALLY RETURN" to India
        and climb the Hindu Kush Mountains
        to revisit Rebazar, after receiving
        the SEVENTH INITIATION (in 1947),
        in order to "finish" his initiations
        with Rebazar.

        Twit states, on page 71, about
        an experience with Rebazar (in
        1947) while sitting under a shade
        tree:

        "... when I was staying at the
        Ashram in ALLAHABAD which
        belonged to Sudar Singh...
        I'll say something here about
        Rebazar Tarzs... I THOUGHT
        that he had MANIFESTED himself
        because I just looked up and
        and there he was walking towards
        me... I FELT that he'd MANIFESTED
        himself because I had averted
        my eyes from the path which
        was directly in front of me, for
        just a matter of moments as
        anyone would do if they look
        around."

        Now, Why would Twit need to
        travel to India in his physical
        body a "second time" if Rebazar
        could "manifest" himself anywhere?

        Wasn't "Dialogues with the Master"
        dictated to Twit at night, in his
        bedroom, in the U.S., via Rebazar
        physically "manifesting" himself!

        See! It's all a bunch of lies and
        Klemp is part of it and the cover-up!

        But, then again, Klemp doesn't
        want to ruin the good thing he's
        got going on, and he certainly
        doesn't want to give up the power
        trip he's on. It's cool to have
        thousands of people bow down
        before you, to get giddy and nervous
        in your presence and thinking
        Harry's "Higher" than the "God"
        of all of the other religions on
        earth!

        Can Eckists see the irony of,
        "My God is Bigger Than Yours!"




        In JULY, 1971 when Twitch
        was recounting these earlier
        experiences (that were later
        placed into this book) Paul
        was the "Full" Mahanta, and
        didn't have any problem with
        nor find any fault with his
        past behaviours. He had no
        regrets about it! To Twitchell
        the Navy was a joke and he
        was going to have some sport
        with them (manipulate them)
        and take it easy while they miss-
        placed his paperwork due, in
        part, to his passive/aggressive
        attitude toward "superior officers."

        PT: "... on setting my mind on
        something, it was going to work
        exactly my way. If I got into the
        service, I wasn't going to be
        bothered with this sort of thing,
        of going out there on the front
        line and fighting. I was going to
        find myself a nice, comfortable
        berth someplace and be kept
        there."

        "I found out so many times in
        dealing with thousands of people,
        that they never knew this. And
        this is one of the Acts of Power
        that all the Dictators and everybody
        else had found, BUT I was using
        it in My way and Not using it as
        a control over a great number of
        people, EXCEPT to keep Myself
        out of positions of danger."

        "... the higher echelon, or the
        superior officers, were always
        having a rough time with me
        because I never acted in accordance
        to what they expected of their
        enlisted personnel. I could block
        them and create all sorts of
        frustrations and problems for
        them which they never knew
        was happening, or they never
        laid the CAUSE to me. I could
        get the papers fumbled up on
        myself until one time they got
        me lost! ... this sort of thing
        had created a vacuum which
        I had set out to do, to create
        the confusion, and I was 'lost'
        between battalions."

        "... sometimes I'd go downtown,
        and sometimesI'd go to the
        canteen on the base, or I'd
        sleep or do something."

        "Well, life became sort of a
        'don't care' --happy-go-lucky--
        Easy Way of living sort of thing
        and everybody was having a big
        laugh, and all that sort of thing.
        So then I decided that I had to
        be an officer..."

        "I knew that if anybody was Never
        physically fit for sea duty, that
        was me, because Psychologically
        I didn't want to get shot at. So
        I set the wheels in motion Behind
        The Scenes and the first thing
        I did, I went over to see the man
        who swore in new officers... which
        should have been the last thing
        on the list of doing. So he swore
        me in and there was nothing that
        they could do about it because
        I flunked my physical examination;
        I got out of most of them, but I
        flunked what I did take and made
        them awfully mad, but they says,
        'I don't know what to do.' ... And
        instead of going to sea, they started
        me in a training school..."

        "And all of this thing was in motion
        working for me, this Behind The Scene
        thing that I was talking about that
        I had learned to control my own
        destiny." [pgs. 52-57]

        Thus, we can see how a ConMan
        like Twit thinks and behaves even
        during wartime. It's all about him
        and having an angle. And, is it a
        coincidence that Twit mentions
        the term "Behind the Scenes" twice
        and that Klemp has a section on
        Eckankar.org that is titled "Behind
        the Scenes" with Paul Twitchell.

        BTW- Here are excerpts from the
        MR. ECK story (pgs. 94-96):

        "... I was on a parking lot getting
        ready to pull out, when some gentleman,
        long, lanky, looked like he had been
        dried up like a bean pole and a little
        hat on his head, rushed over and
        viewed my license plate which had
        nothing but 'ECK' on it; that is all,
        no numbers or anything. And he says,
        'Are you Mr. ECK?' And I very cautiously
        answered him, 'Why, yes, of course.'
        Which meaning, that of course as the
        MAHANTA, the Living ECK Master,
        I'm Mr. ECK, yes. He says, 'Y'know,
        I married... or rather my wife's maiden
        name was ECK, Amy ECK.' I says, 'Well,
        isn't that wonderful!' He says, 'Yes,
        it is.'

        [So, since the Mahanta is the ECK
        Paul didn't really lie to this guy.
        See how Twitchell rationalizes
        and makes it all up as he goes
        along. BTW -I shortened the
        dialogue because Paul goes on
        and on.]


        "... He just went away in a very
        blurred manner, his mind was only
        thinking of the communication and
        the warm relationship that he had
        suddenly struck up with this stranger
        here who was actually in a way, kidding
        him...."

        "Well, this is one of the funny things
        about the Astral Plane and the Physical
        Plane because the Astral Plane will do
        a lot of this in the sense of Not, it's
        Not a Deceit or anything BUT it is arousing
        the emotions and the emotions overcome
        common sense on the intellectual side
        and we don't have any answer to give
        when somebody makes us recall an
        incident as what would be in this,
        projecting ourselves in the future to
        say what we would think of it."

        PT's comments in this book
        show the foundations of
        deceit behind Eckankar.

        I had a message that we
        need to 'let go and move
        on.' Well, I will when Eckists
        do! When those I helped to
        bring into the EK org. recognize
        the lies, quit, and move on
        then I will too!

        Good one, Prometheus!

        "Diff" is a great book because it
        reveals a lot about Twitch, in his
        own words. I really do think that
        subconsciously, Twitch wanted
        people to see that ekult was just
        one big scam, sort of a practical
        joke, and he wanted to be recognized
        for his criminal genius.

        I always thought his claims about
        the number of books he'd read were
        a gross exaggeration. It's humanly
        impossible. And his claims that he
        could "read" a book by sleeping on it -
        well, Edgar Cayce could do that, and
        Twitch stole the idea. Just like he
        referred to Cayce when he was caught
        giving the same expensive "eck-vidya"
        readings to the same people, and threw
        a bit of a Wizard of Oz "Pay no attention
        to the man behind the curtain" hissy-fit
        and told people he had "masterly" reasons
        for the duplicate readings that lowbies
        couldn't understand - and he whined
        that surely Cayce had made some mistakes
        in his "readings", too.

        I forget where Twitch wrote that he was
        going to rewrite history, but I remember
        posting the quote a long time ago. And,
        is it in "Diff" where Twitch writes about
        running into a derelict-type one night,
        who was looking for "Mr. Eck", and had
        that lightbulb moment and decided that
        *he* would be "Mr. Eck"?

        And the one where he's walking on the
        beach feeling sorry for himself and looking
        at his failed life....moaning & groaning
        "why me"....when aha, he realizes it's
        because he's been in training to become
        Master of the Universe!!

        Puh-leeze!!!

        If you read Twitch's own thoughts & words,
        and delete all the purloined "spiritual" stuff,
        he truly reveals himself.

        Hugs,

        Sharon

        Prometheus wrote:
        These quotes are from "Difficulties
        Of Becoming The Living ECK Master."

        Here's a 1971 comment from PT
        from page 28:

        "I knew that I myself was not the
        same as that child that was next
        to me. I knew that I was superior
        in my mentality, I knew that I was
        superior to the teacher in all my
        knowledge, in all my understanding."

        Here's what appeared earlier in
        the Oct.-Nov.-Dec. 1970 Mystic
        World article (page 244):

        "Paul does not appear to like the
        intellectual person. He says they
        are all the same, making elaborate
        little plans. They give fussy attention
        to small perfections and when something
        goes wrong because of their inborn
        blindness, they scream frantically
        for help from someone else to act
        in their behalf--to do something
        for them."

        Thus, it seems we have another PT
        contradiction or a self-loathing!

        BTW- Since, Klemp is listed in the
        "International Who's Who of INTELLECTUALS,
        ninth edition" is Paul (the original
        Mahanta) giving a reading to Klemp
        via the ECK-Vidya, or is this proof
        that Klemp Would Not have been
        Paul's choice to become the LEM/M!

        Here's more of what Paul has to say
        about his intellect and how to "read"
        books (pg. 30):

        "Anyway, this was one of the things
        I'm trying to show you that where
        I had a SUPERIOR MENTALITY, INTELLECT,
        over these other people, and I got
        it in the way that I told you one time
        from SLEEPING ON BOOKS, and SOMETIMES
        READING THEM and sometimes it
        just came natural to me... This
        was a part of that which we call the
        mastership or the training of the
        ECK mastership."

        More on what Paul has to say about
        reading (pg. 98):

        "It is said now that a reader who is
        a good reader, who enjoys reading,
        can read 7,000 books a year normally.
        I have proven this out myself because
        when I was in Seattle I READ ABOUT
        35,000 BOOKS, OR I DON'T SAY THAT
        I PARTICULARLY READ THEM WORD
        FOR WORD. I WENT THROUGH 35,000
        BOOKS of every subject you can know
        which built me a background for a
        certain bit of the work I have today...
        when I was in Washington, D.C. for
        several years, I READ about 15,000
        books in the Congressional Library...
        in New York. I MAY HAVE READ 5,000
        or something like that when I was
        there for one year in 1946."

        Well, as we can see Paul is Full of
        B.S. He sounds like the ConMan
        that he was and shows us that at
        the most he either "skimmed" these
        35,000 books, or is lying about
        this too! But, in any case he does
        show us how he created the
        "background" for Eckankar as
        "a certain bit of the work I have
        today."

        Here's more PT comments (1971)
        that tend to contradict the use of
        skim-reading and the sleeping on
        books for "chelas" with regard to
        The ECK Discourses (pgs.196-197):

        "They lack a good understanding
        as to what is taking place as they
        study these. Often they become
        entangled in trying to figure out
        a syntax, notice a typographical
        error, or READ QUICKLY FOR
        INFORMATION. They tie themselves
        up in all sorts of LOGIC, GRAMMAR,
        and other sorts of opinions and
        SOME READ QUICKLY and say,
        'There is nothing new in that.'

        This is nothing new because EKists,
        still, tend to fill-in the blanks with
        their imaginations when the info
        comes up short (too simple), is
        redundant, lacks details, and seems
        illogical (unbelievable, untrue).

        "The Second Factor is that the
        student who is in A HURRY FOR
        INFORMATION and engages in
        SPEED READING or JUMPS TO
        CONCLUSIONS on the basis of
        a few paragraphs HASTILY
        SCAMMED, misses the most
        important benefits of all."

        It's no wonder that Eckists
        still get confused with the
        "do as I say, not as I do"
        attitude and rules that all
        religious leaders use!

        BTW- What are "the most
        important benefits of all,"
        for the chela, that PT is
        mentioning in this last
        sentence? Aren't the Higher
        EK Initiations the most
        important benefits of all!

        PT's Living Saviour Origin-

        PT realized that people needed
        a living idol to adore and had
        this Mystic World article written
        in his behalf:

        "But few ever connect him up with
        being a holy man, the MAHANTA,
        the Living ECK Master. There is a
        need of the people to believe in
        the magic of a saviour, and Sri Paul
        Twitchell knows this and acts out
        the part." [April-May-June 1971,
        Difficulties of Becoming the LEM,
        pg. 250]

        However, in order to become a
        "Saviour" Paul had to have had
        a Virgin Birth (this is SOP). The
        following comes from pages 251-
        253 of Difficulties of Becoming
        the Living ECK Master:

        "Ramaj, viceroy for Sat Nam...
        Rebazar Tarzs... Gopal Das..and
        Yaubl Sacabi... met to discuss
        the birth of the coming Avatar
        for the Twentieth Century,
        Peddar Zaskq. Born in the
        Caucasian mountains during
        the seventeenth century...
        Given several years in the art
        of silence and Darkness he gained
        enlightenment in preparation
        for his return to the Twentieth
        Century. [HK should take note
        of this next statement] When
        the time came for his demise,
        he passed away still looking
        the same youthful appearance
        yet beyond the normal age of
        man....

        This time Peddar Zaskq was
        born on a Mississippi River
        packet enroute to New Orleans.
        The miraculous birth took place
        just below the city of Natchez,
        Mississippi just below a stock
        farm (manger)... There appeared
        a Blue Carnation in a vase on
        a night table by THE mother's
        bed... It was immediately
        arranged for him to be given
        a home in which to be raised.
        His foster parents raised him
        in a small southern river town
        [Paducah, Kentucky]. He adopted
        their name and became known
        as Paul Twitchell." [end of quote]


        We, also, have Twit saying this
        as an excuse for his lies and self-
        promotion [pg. 126]:

        "So therefore we got to be, to
        place ourselves in the mainstream,
        which I hope I do and I have to say,
        unless I make myself a Historical
        Figure, the struggle of ECK for
        survival is useless. And the question
        of that comes up, well, why? Why
        do you make such a statement as
        that? Every man who sets out to
        do something in this world, unless
        he made himself a Historical Figure,
        then he never again is remembered
        except by a few when he passes."


        PT's Paris (Kentucky) Story is
        on page 254 and comes from
        an article in The Mystic World
        July-Aug.-Sept, 1971:

        "The rest of his story is told in
        fragments of his first visit to
        Paris to be with his stepsister,
        who was in training to be an
        artist. It was here that he first
        met Sudar Singh, an ECK Master,
        and followed him to India with
        his stepsister to study ECK..."

        More about "Paris" (Kentucky)
        from pages 38-40:

        "Later I would be able to go to
        Paris to see my sister who was
        studying art at one of the art
        studios Over There. She was
        under an instructor who had
        studied under Degas... who was
        a very famous portrait painter
        of the opera and the ballet during
        his day in PARIS."

        Thus, we can clearly see that Twit
        was lying and trying to deceive us
        into thinking this was Paris, France
        (not Paris, Kentucky) since he's
        including Degas in the story.

        "I suppose that that's where she
        got her ability to paint figures
        because she had COPIED Degas
        time and time again... Well, in
        living in Paris, I was quite happy
        at the time when I was OVER there
        with my SISTER, my stepsister,
        Katie." [Twit would call her Kay-Dee]

        "...we took advantage of this freedom,
        because for some reason the Europeans
        seemed to have an affection for young
        people, more than they had in the
        western countries, particularly at that
        time." [Here, PT has without a doubt
        connected-the-dots for us by saying
        that he was in Europe and not Kentucky]

        "We were just a few block away from
        Montmartre, where all the famous
        artists were living... Edgar Degas was
        the last that I knew of, Katie was very
        close to him because she was studying
        under one of his students." [Was Degas
        even living in this year? What a liar!]

        "WE met with Sudar Singh who was the
        leading advocate of Soul Travel. From
        Paris we decided that we would go back
        to his little ashram, which was five miles
        above ALLAHABAD, on what they call Old
        Canteen Road..." [So, from Paris, France
        (Kentucky) they went to Allahabad, India!]

        "After I had left India, came home, I was
        then about sixteen. I had a year or so to
        do some work in order to finish my degree."
        [page 48]

        Note: Klemp gives Paul's birthdate as
        Oct. 22, 1908. Thus, if Paul was 16
        this was 1924. However, Klemp states
        on eckankar.org that at age 27 (1935)
        Paul was trying to get into "Who's Who
        in Kentucky" by "exaggerating" and
        "twisting facts" and that he'd never
        traveled outside of the United States
        at that time. Therefore, Paul is still,
        as the M/LEM, lying about these events
        in 1971! And, PT was never in Paris,
        France prior to 1965 and never traveled
        to India (from Paris) with his sister to
        meet Sudar Singh at age 16.

        Here's another PT tidbit [his last words
        from Sept. 17, 1971] that tells a lot:

        "Now, a lot of the impressions that I first
        set out in my first work, I'm having to go
        back and redo these things and try to
        correct them." [page 135]
