    Message 1 of 35 , Jan 4, 2011
      This is Harold Klemp's [HK] 1983 Personal
      & Confidential Letter to Darwin Gross [DG]
      with Gross' response.

      Klemp is discrediting Darwin's validity as an ECK
      Master due to and regarding DG's past conduct.

      However, one wonders the timeline of the misconduct
      since Klemp was initiated by Gross, as LEM, on Oct. 22,
      1981. When, then, did Gross become a "Black Magician?"

      BTW- Gross' responses, to HK's comments, are
      written, as notations, on various parts of the Letter
      including the margins and with an ink pen versus a
      ballpoint. This factor, along with DG's handwriting
      style, has caused me to make educated/logical guesses
      (in some cases) as to the exact word DG is using in
      his reply. However, I also look at the context of Klemp's
      remarks (overall) in order to determine the context of
      Gross' reply.

      Also, I am putting into CAPS everything that Darwin
      Gross, (DG), has "UNDERLINED" or "CIRCLED" in
      Klemp's letter.

      These seem to be key points that Gross is reacting
      to. The (below) beginning comments were written
      by DG at the top of HK's letter.

      Note: "EK A Universal Teaching" was printed on the
      bottom of the first page of Klemp's letter.


      [DG]: It is my belief that all this ruckus was based on ill
      suspicion by you, Harold and passed on to the Board and
      8th's as a power play when all was necessary was to talk
      about it for you know within your own heart you have
      harbored ill feelings which I would have gladly aided you
      had you asked.

      [HK]: "Personal and Confidential – September 15, 1983

      Darwin Gross
      P.O. Box 837
      Corvallis, Oregon 97339

      Dear Darwin, As the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master,
      it is my duty to write you with regard to actions you
      have taken which are CONTRAY TO THE TENETS

      [DG]: How?

      [HK]: and doctrine of the sacred teachings
      of Eckankar and which are not in the best
      interests of the chelas. As the Shariyat-Ki-
      Sugmad states:

      [DG]: I've bent over backwards to help you, you nor the Board
      asked 1 question.

      [HK]: The Divine Dreamer sends out Its dreams to man via
      The Mahanta, the Living Eck Master…. (Book II, p.7)

      [DG]: P.T. is the Mahanta to 1,000 years yet.

      [HK]: … the Sugmad takes control of all life through ITS
      counterparts such as the Eck, the Lords, Rulers, and
      Governors, of each plane, and the Eck Masters of the
      Vairagi, and those beings who are co-workers of ITSELF.
      All these work through and with the Mahanta, the Living
      Eck Master…. (p.60)

      [HK]: Your ACTIONS have circumvented my spiritual authority.
      The communications you have instigated with the membership
      have been needlessly creating DISHARMONY and have been
      MISLEADING. You would not tolerate such activity during
      your Mastership and I have a similar responsibility `to defend
      the works of Eck and the chelas who have put their interest in
      Eck.' (From your June 1972 Wisdom Notes and the Shariyat-
      Ki-Sugmad, Book I, p.101)

      [DG]: What actions? I have been quiet & secluded until
      you removed my secretary using. The accusations here are
      H.K.'s not wishing to tell the truth.

      [HK]: You should clearly understand the CONFLICT you
      are generating within some chelas. The Shariyat I states,
      MASTERS AT THE SAME TIME.' (p.82) This is why it
      is so often repeated in the ECK teachings that the Living
      Eck Master, the holder of the Rod of Power, the Mahanta,
      is the final arbiter on all matters physical and spiritual
      regarding the Eck teachings. Again, from the Shariyat I:

      [DG]: I'm of the mind you and the Board did this. This
      is a misquote. It is up to the individual which EK master
      he looks to.

      [HK]: `… the Eckist finds there is only ONE MAHANTA

      [DG]: Which was established in Paul Twitchell for all time.

      [HK]: of every Soul spent within the universe. All other Eck
      Masters in the Order of the Vairagi, the Brotherhood of Eck
      Masters, are know as the Maharaj.

      Every Maharaj is subordinate to the Living Eck Master no
      matter whom he might be, for the Mahanta holds the ECK
      Rod of Power… The Mahanta holds this Rod of Power until
      he is translated into an esoteric

      [DG]: Harold, Please Re-read the Book 2 (S-K) of the Ninth
      for you were assisting.

      [HK]: position within the Order of the Vairagi somewhere
      within the universes as a spiritual worker or greater importance.
      Then he, too, is a member of this hierarchy where before he
      was the head of it and responsible directly to the Sugmad.
      The Maharajs are know as the Silent Ones….' (p.160)

      [DG]: Start issuing out the succor and get on with the Spiritual,
      Darn it.

      *[ME]: I Cannot find this quote about the "MAHARAJS, the
      SILENT ONES" in my Shariyat 1&2 anywhere! Klemp must
      have edited this out! Klemp's Eckankar Lexicon states:
      THE ROD OF ECK POWER (pg.131).

      How can members of the BROTHERHOOD of ECK MASTERS
      (Order of Vairagi) be the NINE `SILENT ONES!' See, this is
      more proof of Twitchell's made-up religion and scam, and of
      Klemp's cover-up by Re-editing Twitchell's works!

      [HK]: I am not unaware that `having attained the stature of the
      Eck Master, it is found that there yet lies beyond, higher and
      even higher stages of spiritual evolution.' (Shariyat II, p.75)
      But, `the Eck Masters live mainly in seclusion' (Shariyat II,

      [DG]: That is each EK Master's Decision.

      [HK]: `All the Masters of Eckankar generally live in a RETREAT
      or inaccessible places,

      [DG]: You kicked me out of mine and cancelled my Life
      Time Agreement.

      [HK]: or, if in the Western countries, every effort is made to
      conceal their identity. Their presence is universal; in India,
      Tibet, Egypt, China, Lebanon, Cyprus, Hungary, and other
      nations of the world.

      However, THERE IS ONLY one Mahanta, the Living
      (Shariyat II, p.77)

      [DG] Not in the Spiritual Planes! Sorry, the Sugmad has it.
      You want me to lie, huh?! No way…

      [HK]: It is meant for the Living Eck Master, THE MAHANTA,

      [DG]: P.T. Spiritually. This is up to the Board – Not L.E.M.

      *[ME]: As I see it this is the chief flaw with Darwin's whole
      perspective, AND which Klemp took advantage of and corrected!
      The Top Dog Mahanta s/b the sole authority over everything
      Eckankar and Darwin should have seen this! LOL! The tenure
      of the Board of Eckankar members is (now) for a one year
      period, however, they can be replaced at any given time, and
      for whatever reason, by the LEM/Mahanta. The votes and input
      by the BOARD are at the pleasure of the LEM/Mahanta and
      can be rejected at anytime, for any reason, or for no reason!

      [HK]: You should know as well as I that this authority IS
      not for personal or material factors.

      [DG]: Not true.

      [HK]: No other past Eck Master in Eckankar's history has

      [DG]: This is not true.

      [HK]: The rumors and negative gossip are not emanating from
      the direction of the Eckankar Office. If you are concerned
      about such gossip and rumors perhaps you should take note of
      your previous teaching:

      [DG]: What about yours & the phone calls? and other statements
      made of me which where false & defamatory from you & the
      new Board of trustees.

      `By involving themselves in such gossip, Eckists are taking
      on karmic ties with the individuals they are judging and they
      may be sorry they started it.' (your May/June 1980 Mystic
      World article entitled "Criticizing Others")

      As you further wrote in that same article,

      `I have written personal letters to certain individuals asking
      them to stop their bickering and work together harmoniously
      in their communities and they don't seem to realize the hard-
      ships they are creating by ignoring the requests of the Living
      Eck Master'

      [DG]: Come on, Harold Let's work together!

      [HK]: My letter to the membership and other communications
      from the office have been healing in nature – your actions have
      not been so.

      [DG]: Not true. My H.I. & personal mail stops at the EK office.
      You need to talk and look for yourself in the Physical world
      of the much unrest amongst the membership.

      [HK]: As the physical and spiritual leader of Eckankar,
      FROM ECKANKAR – not a past Eck master. This is consistent
      entirely with my role and the role of the Living Eck Master
      throughout time.

      [DG]: This is not true for I have a Spiritual and Physical
      Responsibility to many initiates in ECKANKAR. Also Stop
      Editing my articles Please. It is only truth of the Boards action
      that I wished to let the membership know of. This is our

      *[ME]: My reply to Klemp: The only "throughout time" began
      with Twitchell. HK bought into the LIE with the rest of us,
      however, at some point-in-time he discovered the truth which
      he has kept hidden as he became more powerful and, thus, HK
      perpetuates the LIE of Eckankar even further for his own benefit
      and ego.

      [HK]: Eckankar doctrine is something which falls EXCLUSIVELY

      [DG]: Not true. This is a free world where free speech and
      movement is regarded highly.

      [HK]: Neither he, or any judge, or any past Living Eck Master,
      has any authority in the area. Rebazar Tarzs does not need a
      special mailing to communicat with Eck chelas, nor does
      Yaubl Sacabi, Fubbi Quantz, or Peddar Zaskq. They understand
      their role to assist me in the work that needs to be done.
      ACTIONS. An Eck master has no trouble spiritually with those
      in his charge.

      [DG]: Only to let the truth be known. What did I do wrong?
      Four authors is in true if edited Word only. Please read them.

      *[ME]: My reply to Klemp: Why Does Klemp, himself, STILL
      Need OUTER mailings or OUTER Trainings, Guidelines,
      Discourses, Member Only Books, Rules, Newsletters, etc. for
      the Mahanta Klemp to communicate with his Chelas? He says
      REBAZAR doesn't need mailings and, therefore, Gross shouldn't
      need mailings to communicate! HK doesn't practice what he
      preaches does he! He talks the talk, but can't walk the walk
      himself because HK (the Mahanta) IS A FRAUD! Imagination
      & Dreams are common and universal with everyone in the world
      and the Religions take advantage of these facts! After 25 years,
      Due to his layering of lies, HK is even lower, in consciousness,
      than when he began! Just look at the CON of these other Modern
      Day Godmen!!! ECKists need to Shift their perspective in order
      to see the Truth "behind the curtain" of their own religion too!

      [HK]: At this point, Darwin, you have shown that you do not
      know of the doctrinal rules of the Living Eck Master and prior
      Living Eck Masters. These prior Living Eck Masters are working
      quietly and harmoniously behind the scenes.

      [DG]: I do Know of The Doctrinal Rules of ECK. This is
      why I have been quiet!!!

      *[ME]: Klemp continues the delusion/illusion and scam
      by stating that there were "prior" LEMs versus only PT
      and DG!

      [HK]: I leave open the possibility that this matter will heal
      and that you once again can handle the responsibilities
      involved with the assisting me, the Mahanta, the Living Eck

      [DG]: You do not decide how or what I do with my life. DG
      I had stepped aside 2 years ago with Full Awareness of my
      Responsibilities to the L.E.M. I have not, Nor Planned to split
      the membership as I stated in a letter to the Board, I Joined
      hands with you (H.K.) to resolved this misunderstanding and
      you Refused to Join me in this attempt to stop all the rumors.

      All I have asked for is The Truth to be quoted and the Life Time
      Agreement Between ECKANKAR and Sri Darwin Gross Ful
      Filled. However, the Board Knows No Human decency nor
      Ethics as we have put forth to the World in EK. What you do
      to me you do to Sri Paul Twitchell and all of the EK Masters-
      including yourself. I've always been ready to sit down and
      work out any differences between us. Please let us help those
      who need help. DG

      *[ME]: Once again, Gross makes the mistake of giving the
      ECKANKAR Board of Officers and Trustees too much
      power. Klemp quickly corrected this flaw! After all, how
      can anyone have authority over the 14th circle Mahanta!!!

        I just read this info on
        Darwin in a private email:

        "Darwin also married Carole Roddick

        (I know this first hand, as met her
        several times when she was D's wife)
        After marriage fell apart, Carole left
        ekult. Following this, I heard (third

        issues (not surprising, eh!)"
