The Association Of Transpersonal Patsies

File under: Satscams and The Siddhi of PR

What else are you going to call an organization who books Sri Sri Ravi Shankar as a keynote speaker (along with a slate composed mostly of New Age™ crystal-grippers)?

Guruphiliac operatives deep within the transpersonal psychology community report an upswing in chatter about Sri Sri among TP students in Northern California. We're not at all surprised. Take one self-aggrandizing space-daddy seeking to make himself famous in the States who has patiently cultivated his guru look and act, add a built-in network of cult recruiters in the form of space-daddy-worshiping TP students looking for an angle to help them acquire their own clientèle, and presto, Sri Sri gets hired to speak at a transpersonal psychology conference.

It's yet another demonstration of the brilliance of the Art of Living org's PR Department, who play the What The Bleep Do We Know? crowd like a fiddle with Sri Sri's supposed "advanced degree in physics."

It's just too bad he speaks in terms that would bore anyone with an IQ over 50.

I think SSRS has impressed every tom and dick and whew...harry at some point of time.

Im sure jody was impressed long ago with SSRS till he grew wary and doubtful about the gasping exercises of kriya and became an reliable SSRS antidote eventually.

I was impressed too about SSRS that with such a fickle and frail voice he could gasp and swallow a bhajan which was eagerly listened to by a thousand...err..sorry AOL ! it was tens and thousands of people actually.

I think the only soul that never was impressed even for a moment was 'the CHUCK'.
While everyone tried the kriya through the crack of their mouth
and nose chuck chose to demonstrate through the crack of his butt and he was expelled from the AOL. which infact liberated CHUCK from his bounded life forever. (this i heard from a resourceful source)
Chuck can throw sufficient light on this??

Are you kidding? I saw through this poseur's flimflam the moment I laid eyes on his carefully maintained visage. The insincerity literally floods out of the man's face.

I'm with Jody. SSRI certainly impressed me, in the sense that I was impressed by the size of the following such an obvious charlatan had been able to attract.

"Advanced Degree in Physics". I'm so tired of hearing that. Anyone who knows SSRS from Bangalore will tell you this: he graduated from the equivalent of US high school (but which completes in 10 years). He went on to try to study at an engineering college there. He did not complete his first year. He instead, went to Switzerland (he was 17 years old) to live with MMY and be "trained" haha. It amazes me that he is so brazen as to allow his followers to perpetrate this obvious lie which can be uncovered so easily! He has no degree in anything.

Chuck was in AOL??? Unbelieveable! Do tell, Chuck...

If you deserve a really sh*tty Guru, then you get SSRS. That's about it. If you learn anything, you get away from him asap. He leads people nowhere.

As the Great Tiruchi Swamiji (recently deceased) told me: "He should have married. That's his whole problem. I told him that....When you follow a blind man and then fall into a ditch, what did you expect?" SSRS used to brag that he often consulted Tiruchi Swamiji and was his close "friend". The man has no end of lies.

SSRS is a great guy. You guys just hammer on your own projections. What can you say. SSRS is God incarnate like all good gurus are. I experience the divine in him. If you don't, so what. Who cares about his organization. All organizations around any spiritual figure are usually pretty lame, controlling and ignorant. You're a pack of evil rakshasas, but I luv ya!

On the Other Hand, also known as anonymous said I think the only soul that never was impressed even for a moment was 'the CHUCK'.

.................

Can't a guy go work on an oil derrick in the Gulf of Mexico for a few days without getting chuck busted?

Yea, I took the AOL week end course for $75 back in 1992. There were pretty girls there but none of them wanted to look into my eyes. I told the group that there was nothing original about this breathing, that it was just rebirthing done sitting up and I was taken into a back room to be spoken to very nicely by the group leader.

A year or so later She She came to town and nearly started crying when some of Maharishi's boys stood up in a lecture he was giving and said he was lying when he said Maharishi had given him permission and his blessing to teach. It was then that I did feel a little sorry for the guy. I can understand him better because of the abuse I take around here!

liberated fred,

You must, indeed, be living up to your name! Anyone who can see the Divine in Ravi Shankar, is truly enlightened. You must also see the Divine in Osama Bin Laden. Oops! SSRS even LOOKS like OBL! haha

Happy for ya, fred. I am not enlightened, and SSRS appears to me to be a nasty tempered, self-centered little creep. I wonder if seeing the Divine in even the lowest person makes that person good? I dun't tink sooo.

Betty why are you so nasty to fred? And who is fred statillo?
................

Strange thing is, Chuck, that I knew a guy named Fred Statillo in Fairfield, not sure of spelling though. This scares me somewhat, because if liberated fred is Fred Statillo, then I may also know Betty. I actually did know a woman there whose personality reminds me of our Betty, but the name was different. Who are you Betty?

And I knew a fistful of condescending know it alls like you and Blade in Fairfield. The only men more weak and sniveling in the world are the men in AOL. You're all a bunch of pussies, except maybe Jody. Fred Statillo was among the worst.
