Look Into My Light (As I Lighten Your Wallet)

Tilak, he of fake siddhis used to attract cash and a harem fame, is the subject of a recent investigation by Channel 10 News of San Diego, California. Seems like the lanky Sri Lankan has set up shop at the beach in Encinitas. Some folks do not seem too happy about it:
"I think if it was 150 years ago, this would be the guy who would come to your town and try to sell you snake oil as a miracle cure," said attorney Jim Bush.True, but in Tilak's case, you don't get to take home anything other than the sneaking suspicion that you've been had. And definitely don't let him get anywhere near your daughter:
Tipton said what turned the tables completely was how Tilak treated her then 15-year-old daughter, Tessa.Watch out, young thangs! Getting taken under Tilak's "wing" may result in your awakening to your maternal potential well before anything spiritual can happen.
“He offered to take her under his wing, to be a spiritual guide to her for the next three years," said Tipton.
But in the end, it's all about the light... a little bitty flashlight, that is:
"As I got up from the bed, looked down on the floor, there was a little plastic light, about this big," said Rafael.And that says just about everything you need to know about Tilak.
