Update: The Whys Of Crazy Cooper

File under: Wackadoo Gurus and Satscams

An alert reader presented us with this excerpt from Austin, Texas, deeksha scammer Willam Cooper's Book of Awakening. We'll let it speak for itself (with a little bit of help from us.):
One stated intention (it came in a vision to another psychic not me) was to put my face on the bill board and that Deeksha would be given to all those that pass by the bill board.
My psychic friend has enabled me in my psychotic grandiosity by suggesting that my face has the power to attract everyone who gazes upon it.
That is what is happening!
In the wilds of my fevered delusions.
Secondly, we wanted to familiarize all of Austin with the word deeksha to make it easier for all the deeksha groups and to raise the already high vibe in Austin.
There are enough marks and patsies for all of us, as long as I get first shot at the ladies.
I also thought that it would be a statement for all spiritual groups to Austin that times are a changing.
I didn't get anywhere close to this much nookie when I was in college!
We are in the Golden Age and Enlightenment is here Now!
We are out of our heads, drunk with the power of deeksha-giving, amazed that just the suggestion of something happening is all that is required to make something "happen".
I am in no way committed to working to reach the 64,000 by 2012. I do so much because it is my joy and I can not help it.
Plus, I'm getting crazy laid now.
There is not a difference between me and the action. There is not a doer in that regard....it just happens through me.
It's still all about me... and all the tail I'm pulling.
In the same way, I quit my previous job at $95 per hour with unlimited work and have not had an income since 2003. I live on my savings.
That should throw the IRS off the trail.
Work happens through me 7 days a week and the results are stunning because it is the Divine at work not me. Essentially I am a big Volunteer.
Note the capital "V". I underplay it by design, but inside I'm convinced I'm an avatar, and I've got the grandiose self-image to prove it. Who needs those pompous greed-bags in India? Not me.

Today, Austin; tomorrow,
the world.

Update: A former Austin deekshaite reveals another facet to Crazy Cooper's kooky ways:
One of the things that completely turned me off just before I stopped going last December was his announcement that he would no longer accept anyone into his private practice that wouldn't take deeksha. It sounds like he's just lying now and that he's become rather unethical as a therapist. Can you imagine a therapist that was into Scientology telling clients they had to audit or hit the road? I'm not even sure it's legal.
It's not the first time we've heard rumblings of Cooper's not-so-ethical behavior as a psychotherapist. Hopefully a member of the Texas State Board of Psychologists will happen by the Billboard and be inspired to investigate just how far Crazy Coop has fallen out of the tree.

fyi, he really is making little or no money out of it. It is not a cold-blooded scam as you seem to portray here. people are really convinced it works - so u r right on the delusional part.
watever money is made, is all used for stuff like sending dedicated friends who can't affors it to india and such, not to fill up his bank accounts.

FYI, I was at an acupuncturist in another country not long ago and she used some metal prong thing on my scalp to relax me. They sell them at places like REI, or World outdoor headquarters or whatever the name of that place is. In any case, it did about the same thing as a deeksha. I think it would be more economical for people to just buy those things and give each other scalp massages.

Not having to pay for his pussy is saving him a lot and if they feed him too, that's another plus. His non-profit probably pays for housing costs. It never fails to amuse me when these self-deluded spiritual teachers bray about how little they are making. Why do they think they should be paid for making people more deluded than they were before, filling them with false beliefs that will eventually undermine their own natural inspiration.

“I also thought that it would be a statement for all spiritual groups to Austin that times are a changing”.

Times are a changing according to who? According to a guru who says that the “energy doesn’t transfer well” without a (huge) money exchange? Any guru worth his salt is not going to take money in exchange for spiritual awakening (please correct me readers if I am wrong).
You may be getting bliss, but you are not getting true awakening, or perhaps the awakening you are getting is a result of suggestion, and then you trance out on the idea and the experience. Trancing out is ok in my book, as long as you don’t call it enlightenment.

Are there any deeksha people out there that can enlighten me about how, exactly, deeksha is transfered through a picture of Cooper on a billboard? I am familiar with deeksha and have heard of eye deeksha, and long distance deeksha and all that, but deeksha through a picture? That's a new one. Are there other deeksha givers that believe a pic of themselves can transfer energy or is it just Cooper?

As much as I really dislike the idea of this Kalki person and all his followers, something occurred to me about the Money And The Energy Flows Better thing:

Energy is matter. Money is matter. You give so much of one type of matter (money) and Kalki gives up what he has (energy). This is assuming, of course, that there is any transferring of anything at all.

But really, money does play into many of the saints stories and even some scriptures. It's called Guru Dakshina, and some of those guys asked for some pretty big things, bigger than $5000 bucks.

I've read that the revered, poor, wandering Shirdi Sai Baba used to go up to people with money and demand cash, lots of it, and get it, and then say later that the person, by giving that cash up to him, particularly, had relieved himself of some horrible karma. Also that the person owed him (Shirdi Sai Baba) that money anyway. Who knows?

I certainly don't.

I am not of the group that believes that things have to be free to be good. I love my flat panel TV and it cost plenty. So why shouldn't some bliss, or knowledge or whatever, (I'm sure Kalki is not giving any of that -- way below TV quality imo -- but this is about money in general and the exchange for services )spiritual.

well, maybe now some will copy cooper, and even try to go further in their ego rising. this would not be surprising.
Today a friend, a deekshagiver who unfortunately got involved since I first told him about(when I went to do the process), told me that I don't like deeksha because I have inner unresolved issues.... quite pathetic...

[They] told me that I don't like deeksha because I have inner unresolved issues

That's straight out of How to Built a Cult 101, blame the devotee for not acquiescing to the guru and group-think of the membership.

Heard that one. but the rest of the spiel is that you should still continue deeksha till it resolves those issues and then u will begin to "like" it (i.e. u must give enough time to brainwash yourself...) - i must say its a good tactic.

If I get dicksha and perservere until my issues are all resolved, do you think I could get as much pussy as this Cooper fellow?

“but the rest of the spiel is that you should still continue deeksha till it resolves those issues”.

I don’t know which deeksha givers you have gone to but who ever says that has no integrity. Cooper, as i have noted from reading his mass emails and seen in his discussions, combines psychology with deeksha and has left his job because he no longer thinks therapy is the solution. He thinks he’s going to cure people with deeksha. I would be skeptical, though, of any one who makes the claims he does, i.e. to be enlightening people “Now”. I guess it could be positive for some people as long as they don’t get carried away with that kalki non sense. But once I read a letter in one of his mass emails that really disturbed me. Some guy who sounded a little confused wrote about his long process of spiritual awakening and all he had been going through. To me he seemed much more spiritually evolved than Cooper in the way he expressed himself, but for some reason, this guy assumed Cooper knew more than he did and asked him for advice. Of course, Cooper encouraged him to go do the process in India, or to be exact, told him to go if he had the ‘inclination’. The thing that bothers me is that these people who are writing him assume he is more spiritually advanced than they are and there is nothing that qualifies that assumption.

I was deekshagiver myself. Therefor I know many deeksha givers. I can tell, than 90% of deekshagivers(to be benevolent about the percentage) would have given me that response, in that way or another. They give no space to doubt or questioning, cause that would cause them inestability....and they better believe that they are into the coolest spiritual movement of the history, with the "ability" to enlighten the world.
I wonder how come they don't see, that after a few years of being involved with deeksha they still havent enlightened anyone.not even themselves... altough they think they are enlightened. My dasa told me I was enlightened. hahaha!!!so they have probably been told same nonsense, and they fully believe.

Have you seen this? Quite illuminating.
It is from one of Freddie Nielsen's recent confessions aboyt deeksha:
Here it seems to be an assumption (your) that I am sharing from my bitterness. Believe it or not, but it is not so, I am neither resentful, not angry. I could easily sit and chat and have fun with the dasas, Ananadagiri, A&B. I have absolutely nothing against them personally, but I also do not agree with them in what they say: I think they lie a lot, manipulate people, drag me in the mud consciously etc. I see that it is only their fear making them act like this. I do not exclude that they believe that by lying about me, they think they do mankind a favor, so that their teaching that they may believe will give mankind mass-enlightenment, can spread more effortlessly. In this case I do not believe that they can give mass-enlightenment – these are only Bhagavan’s promises. Furthermore, I do not believe God (or even an enlightened Master) can lie like this and be this dishonest.
I agree that my article is not supporting the evolution of their lies, incl. that all are expected to believe in their lies. What evolution I am not supporting, please let me know. If you mean the enlightenment of man, then it is only blind faith that A&B can give what they promise. I don’t believe that they speak the truth regarding this, but I am at the same time not closed to the fact that one of these hundreds of gurus who promise world enlightenment, might be true.
Aliyah (an amazingly accurate famous Russian psychic) told me and many others three years ago that I was caught in a sect, that I was so innocent and trusting that A&B made use of me, my innocence, my talent of spreading their message effectively etc. She said that Bhagavan had an amazing intellect, good business skills and that he wanted to see his photo in as many places as possible (become famous and rich). She said that Bhagavan had received a gift from God, and that after some time he had started to misuse that gift (using it for his own personal winning).

Here is one more excerpt that I think is important (i.e. from freddie Nielsen, who was in the movement for 15 years):
"I think that A&B are really heartless when they exaggerate so much, promise incredible things when very little actually happens. Some are strongly regretting that they received dikshas, others have gone to the mental hospital as a result etc. So there are both positive as well as negative points regarding the effects of dikshas. I do not want to deny any of these two opposite poles. Who knows how the dikshas work, if it is mostly because of faith… But I do not agree that there are LOTS of people who have gotten a permanent inner peace etc.
Maybe one does not have to go through the incredibly expensive 21 days course in order to give dikshas. Many Russians have take loans that takes 2-20 years to pay back, some live in poverty until they have paid back their loans. Others have become totally desperate due to the loans that now destroy everything in their lives, and those who did not get a nice state often become extremely depressed.
I believe in purity and integrity. These two fundamental qualities I can hardly see in A&B and their Movement. And there can always be a risk involved in getting energy from a source that is far from pure. Who knows what this will end in…"

Good that Freddy sings that out.
But he cannot blame others about lies, because he himself has told so many, especially about his amazing million orgasm God realization.
Someone in such a realization, realizes also, like clear water, that Kracki is not a saint.
But this Freddy only realizes this truth once he had been kicked out of the movement. Behaving with anger and rage, and yes, also bitterness.

Meanwhile he keeps on giving the same courses that made him famous, this time changing the word deeksha, and since he seems to have some lack of self seccurity, promoting 2 other modern saints, and marketing their new techniques with endless stories about experiences of bliss and miracles...
