The "Go-between" Mahanta is Omitted
- Hello All,
I just read an article, in the 09/2010
H.I. Letter, by an ESC staffer.
This ESC staffer was thinking about
an old classmate and decided she'd
do an Internet search for her after 40
years. She found her online called and
left a message and received a return
call. They then began to write (email?)
each other and caught up on the things
they had been doing over the years.
The H.I. mentioned that she moved
to Minnesota to work for her "church,
What's funny about the article is that
this H.I. never mentions that she spoke
about the Mahanta to her friend. Instead,
she mentions "HU" and the "Holy Spirit,"
(versus the "ECK").
So, is this H.I. (Amy Berk) being just a
little bit deceptive with her old "newcomer"
Why did she omit two specific ECK terms-
"ECK" and "Mahanta?"
It seems she's using the old HK "common
language" ruse/deception, by substituting
"Holy Spirit" for the ECK.
BTW- Is "HU" common language to those
of us who are non-Chinese? Because she
mentions the HU.
But, why is using the word "ECKankar"
okay and considered "common language"
when it contains ECK?
Why can't "ECK" be used since it is
also used as a shortened version of
ECKankar? Or, maybe the two different
definitions/uses would confuse people?
Actually, if one listens to PT's old talks
he uses the shortened word of "ECK"
when referring to ECKankar. That's how
it came about in the first place. This
was the original meaning for "ECK"
(ECKankar) until Twitchell eventually
used it as a unique substitution for
the term "Holy Spirit."
However, the biggest omission was
that this H.I. didn't say that she spoke
about the MAHANTA. Why is that? Is
mentioning the demi-god Klemp an
embarrassing topic for her, or is there
a more devious (vahana/missionary)
reason for this omission?
What's really funny/ironic is that directly
under this article is this encapsulated quote
from HK's "The Holy Fire of ECK, Book 3"
that Klemp has been promoting for sale:
"Divine love is all-embracing and compelling.
The Mahanta, the Living ECK Master's love
can enlighten, inspire, and heal.... Such is
the nature of true love."
In her article this H.I. also mentions that
her friend and her friend's mother had been
going through difficult times because "her
mom will be going through chemo and
radiation treatments." The HU CD and Book
helped as did the spiritual techniques this
H.I. shared... But where is the mentioning
of the Mahanta who's "love can enlighten,
inspire, and heal?" Very strange that HK's
alter ego isn't mentioned!
On another note, I have to wonder why
certain articles are selected over others.
In this article the HU CD and Book are being
promoted for sale, as is the "Eckankar
Journal," and the "HU, the Most Beautiful
Prayer," and directing newcomers to their
local ECK Centers, as well as, giving them
"spiritual techniques" to use.
Thus, this H.I. Letter becomes an instruction/
sales manual for H.I.s. and in and of itself
is a sales catalog with suggestions on
what H.I.s need for spiritual growth, and
to promote ECKankar to the public. Most
long-time H.I.s have discovered by now
that Klemp's books are a waste of money,
time, and space on their bookshelves.
His books contain either embellished or
common stories by deluded and/or naive
ECKists or wannabes and simply repeat
info Twitchell had already shared 40 years
If ECKists want to read more impressive
"spiritual" stories just Google "miracles"
There is one more thing (an omission?) that
I noticed. This H.I. (Amy) said that after the
(phone) call... "We began writing and catching
up with our lives." Now, are we supposed to
believe that she actually wrote snail-mail
letters (like IROs) versus writing via emails?
Is it that ECKankar (Klemp) doesn't want
to promote Internet use (emailing) more
than he already has with Amy's Internet
search to find her long lost friend? Thus,
it seems ECKankar is giving the impression
that writing snail-mail letters is a better
option since it would also help (along with
EMF/EMR fears) to keep ECKies away from
their computers and Googling sites such
as this one (ESA) via doing an "Eckankar"
However, the Catch-22, for Klemp, is
that his "The H.I. Letter" is an instruction/
inspiration/sales manual for his H.I.s.
H.I.s are being encouraged, via this
article, to do Internet searches for old
classmates and to update and inform
them about their church, Eckankar.
Thus, in this present and future, H.I.s
have been encouraged to use the Internet
and the Search option to track down old
friends and classmates. This will give them
the opportunity to explore new areas and
topics which they, in the past, would have
not been exposed to by avoiding Internet/
computer use. This error on Klemp's part
could help H.I.s to expand and see through
their narrow-minded religious focus as well.
Perhaps, this article was the Holy Spirit's
way of circumventing the Black Magician's
(Klemp) hold on certain H.I.s who are ready
or are preparing to have an Aha! moment
prior to this next ECK Worldwide Seminar?
It just occurred to me that this H.I. (Amy)
might be, subconsciously, saying that No
Mahanta or Go-between Master is needed
and that Soul can go directly to the Holy
Spirit instead and skip the Middleman/Mahanta.
Of course Klemp would counter this by saying
he is One with the Holy Spirit, but so is Soul!
That's the catch that he doesn't mention.
H.I.s don't need a Baby Sitter after 30 years
or do they? I guess that most do or are told,
by the Baby Sitter (Klemp), they still need him.
Now Why would their Baby Sitter tell them that?
BTW- How much is the Baby Sitter being paid?
