Re: Why is it called "Brothers of the Leaf?"
- Hello Diana and All,
Klemp treats Joan badly as well. He
made some rude comments to her
after she sang The Little HU Song
while onstage at a seminar awhile
back. Joan was forgetting the lyrics
and repeating the verses when he
became agitated with her and said
to the audience that sometimes he
has to tell her to be quiet (i.e. shut-up)!
Plus, I recall HK telling a story, long ago,
where he gave his 10 year old daughter,
Marion, some tools to fix their push
mower since she was the one who
wanted a lawn to play on. He thought
she should take responsibility. Yet,
Klemp never takes responsibility for
the negative happenings of his chelas
and H.I.s while promising them health
and protection. And, what has he ever
Also, let's not forget that Klemp chose
not to console his mother and attend
his father's funeral. Instead Klemp went
to attend the 1971 ECK Worldwide when
Darwin was made the 972nd LEM/Mahanta.
Yes, it would seem that Harold has
a track record of having a lower than
normal opinion of women.
prometheus Harold was never comfortable
around women and treated his first wife
