Catching Up With The Krapki

File under: Gurus Clockin' Dollars and Satscams

There is not a cesspool created in the entire universe that can contain the mountain of shit that is the Kalki Bhagavan's Oneness University website.

His continuously-milked cash cow isn't called deeksha anymore, it's now "Oneness Blessing," and we have never encountered a load of crap that approaches the depths of its explanation:
Oneness Blessing thus given affects a neuro-biological change. There are 16 centres in the brain responsible for definitive experiences like sensory perception, emotions of jealousy, hatred, fear, compassion, love, joy, separation, connectedness, creativity, learning, etc. Oneness Blessing results in the activation of certain centres and the de-activation of certain centres bringing about a shift in the perception and experience of life. The process finally lands the seeker in a permanent, incredible state of consciousness.
The quackery and flimflammery present in this statement has us looking long and hard at a career as crash test dummy. We are beyond flabbergasted and on to an entirely new experience in horror and exasperation.

God help us, please! It is surely a sign of the end times that such utter and completely ridiculous nonsense is accepted as spiritual truth, rather than as what it really is – the lies of a con man riding global idiocy to power, riches, fame and glory.

If it is such nonsense, how come so many teachers are endorsing them or visiting them. Like the likes of Ron Roth, Arjuna, and Isaac Shapiro to name a few.

I even saw a book at Borders about Deeksha, it is making it everywhere. If it was all a con, do you think it would be attracting this many teachers or people?

Do you really think the people of India could be fooled so easily by this couple? Aren't they supposed to be better at spotting fakes in India than here in the US?

Has anybody in India questioned them or their authenticity?

Why did Freddie Nielsen leave?

Just because these lesser teachers have been flattered into believing this nonsense doesn't mean its worth anything real.

Because there's one born every minute.

Do you really think the people of India could be fooled so easily by this couple?

Given the high levels of superstition in India and its penchant to accept such things as mahavatars, yes, they are easily fooled.

Aren't they supposed to be better at spotting fakes in India than here in the US?

Oh, we're just as dumb in the States about it.

Has anybody in India questioned them or their authenticity?

Not when most of them are caught up in the mass hysteria that Kracki has created.

This is a strange question, but it is on my mind regarding the krapki. What if I ever did get a deeksha from one of their deeksha givers or whatever they call it these days, and I have no expectations. If I just go and pay my $20 or whatever it is. Is there any harm in this, can this hurt me in any way? I mean this seriously, can their energy transfer or deeksha have any possible negative side effects. Or can only good or nothing come of it? I have always been afraid to receive energy from others like this. Still pondering if I should do it. Just as a test, just like some go and get hugged by Amma or be in Meeras presence, I was considering trying out the deeksha.

Certainly many have, and there are even cases against "krapki" - but that doesnt mean people will stop following or teaching. dont make it seem like the whole of india is being fooled. india has more than *billion* people. even if a million are being fooled, it is nothing.
and remember, you can't generalize anything about the people of india.
when one thing is said, the opposite is also equally true.

many teachers go to Kracki cause they still dream on somthing they dont have.
this movement attracts, cause it sells the possibility of enlightening humankind through deeksha. and fellows want that. fellows want to become saviours.
or want to become rich and holly.
A real teacher who lives Truth, needs no going anywhere nor get anything from anyone.
It is not important if in India they question them or not. What is important is if you question yourself or not.
If there was to be a real guru in India nowadays,... most likely he would be hidden to masses

Freddy Nielsen left cause they kicked him out.
and he got angry. and still is. but pretending that his own deekshas are stronger than kracki's.
Roth got a title of Avatar in Oneness Univ, so very convenient for his reputation. Arjuna likes to play the saviour, and if I am not wrong Saphiro is not involved with that anymore.
By the way, do you knew Jody, that Sri Sri went to visit Kracki few years ago? Unfortunately I can't prove that.

Flies are drawn to bullshit faster than to a bowl of organic oatmeal with sprig of mint on top and their maggots thrive in it. These shitiots you mention go to their master to learn how better to fleece their own sheep but wouldn't if they had to pay!

"I even saw a book at Borders about Deeksha..."

I saw one at the Dime Box Borders about one man's attempt to successfully breed mules and bought it. Quite a disappointment! Took it back and exchanged it for "Smoke From This Altar", the poems of Louis L'Amour.

"Do you really think the people of India could be fooled so easily by this couple? Aren't they supposed to be better at spotting fakes in India than here in the US?"

Indians have been delivering their little boys to Sly Baba for decades KNOWING there was a good chance they'd be taking it up the ass! Why? Money and fame!

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

"Has anybody in India questioned them or their authenticity?"

India is more mafia dominated than Sicily. People know that where there is money there is power to be feared and coveted. How do I know this? My mule told me!

No offense meant but I've seen photos from India of fresh cow plop shaped into a lingham and garlanded.

To anon's comment about getting the $20 deeksha. My spouse is a bit of a deeksha devotee. She routinely signs up for teleconference deeksha blessings from some woman in Sweden. Aside from the eerie spirtual conference call aspects, the effects are no more harmful than any prayer, meditation or blessing.

So we are out the $15 or so and feel a little more relaxed. Now, should she decide to get on a plane to India...

It's harmless enough - but like TM(transcendental meditation), it can lead to things which are not so good.

Personally, placing one's belief in a higher power is an anathema to me.

I received "deeksha" from some nice ladies at a local bookstore, for free. My experience was pleasant enough, and I sensed the sincerity (and innocence) of the bestowers, but it was nothing more than a warm touch, not unlike a lingering hug from a friend. What's behind the "Oneness Movement" may be less than benign, but I don't think the touch itself can do harm, if anyone's wondering. It certainly wasn't a blow-out-your-motherboard shaktipat-style transmission. Not that those are spiritually meaningful either, but they can indeed be dangerous to some peoples' nervous systems. Deeksha itself didn't feel dangerous, or like much of anything. Kracki and Co. is another matter, and I'll be interested to see how it all unfolds. Two friends of mine did the 21-day thing and they appear to be okay.

Sri Bhagavan is the Avatar of the ages.

Every word that he speaketh is pure wisdom and pure truth.

He is Holy, pure, and God intoxicated.

We are so lucky to have this Avatar in this age.

Have any of you on here seen this Great Master or heard him speak. You might change your mind about him if you did. If you just hear a little of this Great Avatar and Great Master, you will be changed forever.

May his Oneness Movement spread everywhere and touch every ones hearts. May there be oneness everywhere, starting here.

Om Jai Sri Bhagavan

Guess what, fool, there is never anything but oneness, anywhere and everywhere at all times for all of eternity. What your full-of-krap avatard is calling oneness is like a hideous infection of lies, using the truth as a virus uses a coat, seeping in and taking away all spiritual authenticity and autonomy, all to be traded for fealty to a common criminal.

God help you my friend. You are lost to yourself and the truth.

I am not making this up, He has told us this. The Avatar of the Ages is here. This is the Age of Oneness. Om Jai Sri Bhagavan.

Millions have been attracted to him and his Oneness Movement is spreading like wildfire. You can't stop it, no matter how hard you try. But am really, really curious if you have investigated him in any thorough way or are just going by the hip.

Take a gander at the extreme of levels of brainwashing at work here.

Kalki Bhagavan and his "Oneness" Movement are crimes against humanity and the spiritual truth we all share as one.

This is not me making proclamations about Sri Bhagavan, this is from his own mouth. Check out youtube and watch for yourself. He says this. I quoted him accurately. Feel free to reject comments like this, but I am only reporting the accurate words of Sri Bhagavan. Thank you though for posting his words, and I am indeed soaking it in.

Jody, I take it you don't like Sri Bhagavan very much.

He is a blight on Vedanta.

That is your right, but have you ever seen him or heard him speak?

Anyone who claims to be God himself come to save the world can be eliminated as a reliable spiritual preceptor straight away. It is not necessary to hear anything he has to say, because it is all from the regard of a con man, or at very best, a seriously-deranged individual.

If so, what do you think of his wisdom, the truths he shares?

He uses a parody of the truth to varnish his lies, making them acceptable to the human sheep he preys on.

You do know that he is an Avatar, right?

I know he's an avatard!

I can see you picking on some of the lesser gurus out there, but Sri Bhagavan is beyond any other teacher out there.

I'm sorry to say, but you are an utter idiot to believe that.

Millions have been attracted to him and his Oneness Movement is spreading like wildfire.

Mass hysteria is a common phenomenon in world cultural history. This is merely one of those events. The criminal at the top just lucked out on a reliable trigger for the hapless masses. He's no more God that my dog's ass.

You can't stop it, no matter how hard you try.

I don't have to. It will burn out on its own, a pattern that all these events follow.

But am really, really curious if you have investigated him in any thorough way or are just going by the hip.

I am going by the truth of the Upanishads, which renders Krapki just another asshole like the rest of us, if we were sickeningly self-regarding nincompoops marketed slickly with some of the most grandiose visions to hit the world since Adolf Hitler.

And that mouth is at best, attached to a pathologically-deluded individual, or more likely, a simple self-promoter that hit on a successful formula to give people a false idea of "oneness", all based entirely on a self-suggested sensation rather than anything that could be called authentic self-realization.

He's since fallen for his own bullshit, and is living in a fantasy existence of his own deluded making, all surrounded by the worst kind of sycophancy to hit the planet since the Roman Empire.

If u wanna know who Kracki is, first find out who u are. and never believe anyone who tells you that he is more god than you.
Kracki is not god intoxicated. He is money and self importance intoxicated.

Does anyone know where I can go to get absolution, I am feeling a little worried that I have made yet another mistake????

Anon, what makes you thing Kalki is beyond any other teacher out there? Certainly the amount of followers he attracts has no bearing on whether he is the real thing. And as for investigation, one of his most ardent followers, freddie nielsen has some stuff to say about him, as do others who have been there. The man charges $5500. for the retreat and claims he is God. That should say something in itself. Though I am not a Christian, can you imagine Jesus having charged a fee for his enlightenment services?

Hi durga ! I thought the stress was telling and you chose to hit the thicket too. Your question can turn jesus Da crisis beneath his tomb, they claim to have found in kashmir, India.

What if jesus regretted secretly that he had not charged money, durga? How are we talking so conclusively about a man who was nailed some 2000 years ago, despite being the only begotten son of his only sugar daddy?

Remember he died very early
according to biblical sources.
If he had lived longer, perhaps there was more occasions to jesus faltering than us counting his blessings now? Again an assumption only.

But i wonder how come you suddenly stormed outta your den and announce like a christian, who was born again, after an extra dosage of speed and ecstacy pills drowned in a tequila kicked his ass?

 
At 5/04/2007 11:53 PM, Blogger onenessuniv said...

Have any of you on here seen this Great Master or heard him speak.
My dear chap,
I was once one of K's peddlers (Krackbots, in Jody's language). So there are people here who have been thru the charade and escaped with their senses, money, chakras and kundalini fairly intact.

Please search this blog for Kracki if you want the complete story.

As to the person who asked about Sri Sri. The meeting is true. I used to have photos of the meeting. The stooges (er dasas) said that SSRS asked Kracki for enlightenment. And the Great One replied that SSRS should bring some 50 or 100 of his devs along, and they would all be given the ability to transmit enlightenment to others. Then nothing happened.

Several years after leaving, i still occassionaly get and email or phone call asking why i left, by people who claim they are facing problems. In the rare case that i tell them, i get a v hostile response. People it seems want to live with being fleeced and suckered. So I prefer not to shatter their blind-faith. I have given up.

As to the other person who asked about negative effects. I certainly hope not. However, (i do not know whether to trust this), an energy healer claims that K had damaged my chakras and kundalini, and left (astral) entities in me to control me. the healer claims he removed them, and i am clean now.

I can promise you that K used something (praps like Tantra) to superimpose visions on my mind. I swear this. This happened b4 i even visited their ashram. This happened by meditating in front of that so called srimurthy. Please keep away from that infernal thing.

Like a fool i dispelled the notion that the visions were forced on me, cos i was so dying for some "spiritual experiences".

Even if someone gives you a free deeksha, please refuse. Even if you think i am talking crap, keep away from deeksha givers and deekshas.

Anyway, what is important to remember is that even tho' people may fall for this in droves, there ARE people leaving too.

So, Jody, if this blog manages to save one sucker, now and then, then it has succeeded. Don't lose hope. If God put Kracki up there for some purpose, then i suppose he put you up here for one too.

bye,
ex-krackbot (haha)

Of coas, they didnt mention our hero, K.

The public that was interviewed was v shocked and livid and wanted these fakes behind bars.

I know this won't really make a difference, things will just go on as usual aftr the dust settles. But still thought i would tell you. check out the site.

Semblance, i am trying to stop blogging cause the computer is affecting my lower back, but guess I am an addict and cannot get completely off.
About Jesus, I view him from a perspective different from Christians which I can't get into on this blog. i don't see him as God's only son, (which is just a misinterpretation of the original Hebrew which calls everyone God's sons), or as the messiah. But, as for integrity as a spiritual leader, he had some of that , IMO. I could have mentioned other examples to make my point about Kalki, but most people would have no idea who I was talking about.
What really irks me about the kalki phenomenon is the total lack of humility of this man. Who in their right mind would want people to worship them as God? I suspect that Jesus also didn't want to be worshipped as God, but people seem to have a deep need to deify their spiritual leaders.

to onenessuniv --

What you say is interesting. We have a friend who has dabbled in just about anything "spiritual". A few months ago he came by and seemed oddly changed, not for the better. I felt an unpleasant, strong energy in his presence and felt badly, because he has been a friend for a long time. I wondered what I was feeling and tried to push it aside. Then he went into this long sales pitch on how he had just returned from Kalki Bhagavan (we knew he had just come from India) and had spent some $5000 or so dollars to become a deeksha giver. I realized that the unpleasant feeling was that energy. He wanted to give deeksha to our family, and we politely declined, citing the urgency of dinner which would get cold. He tried over and over again to hug all of us again and again, but truthfully, his hug made me feel nauseous! This is a surprise to me. How could someone give this kind of influence that an old friend could become a "giver" of nasty feeling energies? Bizarre. We tried to feign interest in his total belief in Kalki but it was difficult. He seemed really brainwashed. Oh well.

Since none of us expected to feel anything except the warmth of visiting with an old friend, I'm reluctant to pass this experience off as our imagination or superstition, etc., and would agree that people should stay away from deeksha and deeksha givers.

But the gap between Jesus crisis and Krapki is about 2000 years.
JC and the gang was eponymously semitic. Worship or crucify were the only two friggin' options, it appears they had.

But krapki belong to the post information era. I think if he managed a blatant lie of this kind

another exdeekshagiver agrees: stay away from deeksha bullshit.
And read this:
http://www.freewebs.com/deekshashadows

People have reported that the main site (/dikshainfo) has been hacked and disturbing programmes put in. A well wisher contacted us and told how her life will be in danger if she were to reveal what she knows about Bhagavan - she knows that she can be put in an “accident” or suddenly disappear. This well wisher asked Freddy to be careful as he is even more in danger, as Bhagavan would like to see Freddy dispappear. She told him that if he were to die in an “accident”, disappear or become dead mysteriously, all must know that it is the work of Bhagavan’s “Team”.
This is a copy of the original site May 7th 2007: www.freewebs.com/dikshainfo in case the "Oneness" hackers were to succeed in annihilating that website.

this is just an example of how crazy u can get when u fall into Krackis hands,....
I want to remember that Freddy did not leave. he was kicked out.
So just in case, remain faraway from any deekshagiver, and exdeekshagiver who makes too much noise about kracki.
I agree with onenessuniv: "People it seems want to live with being fleeced and suckered"

In my post I wasn't implying that Kracki doesn't want to be worshipped. It seems that he is strenuously trying to promote himself as God,or manifestation of God, according to former deeksha givers and this blog. In JC's time, it was normal to deify people, you're right. Can't really compare that to Kracki, but the same magical thinking is involved.

"Hope you understand what i said, the way i meant it."

I understand what you mean. You, being in the center of it all, probably understand it a lot better then us folks here who can go hide in the thickets.

"Inbetween girl" started off as being quite openminded on the deekha scam. Now the way she writes about it (see link above), would make guruphiliac seem like really polite and well-mannered.

~~~ Yes durga! True. Last friday i was traveling in some one's car which a had a sly baba's blessing sticker prominently. Most cars in india will have ganesha idol on the dash board which is believed to prevent the passengers from calamitous accidents. They also have stickers of prominent gurus.

Sly baba, She she, amma chee, kracki, are some of the most common stickers you would find inside the cars besides hundreds of many small time but very influential gurus in other cars.

The problem that i face is the contradicting views about the same gurus. I hear all the time, absolutely heartwarming and totally tear jerking stories about krapki(and all the rest of them)...

"I mean this seriously, can their energy transfer or deeksha have any possible negative side effects. Or can only good or nothing come of it? I have always been afraid to receive energy from others like this. Still pondering if I should do it."

Personally, I don't think anything negative can come from it except psychological harm, i.e. thinking that it's going to be the panacea for all your problems when in reality it is just a nice sensation that gives temporary feelings of warmth. The real harm (that comes from any religious leader that promotes him/herself as God), is the fact that it requires people to put their critical thinking abilities in the back seat.

I know people who have heard all the pedophile stories about Sly Baboon, believe some of them and STILL think the man is God almighty. My solution is mule kicking! Being kicked by a mule is a life transforming experience that will trump any lesser ones--such as feeling light in the head after an intense dickya session. If you want to go all the way into the bright white light, take a mule kick to the head! If you're just suffering in an overall sort of way, a mule kick to the leg or ass will overshadow lesser pain and focus the mind in a one pointed manner. This is the onslought of samadhi. My mule, Da Free Jack, is fully realized and knows just where to deliver the shaktipat!

"Sly baba, She she, amma chee, kracki, are some of the most common stickers you would find inside the cars besides hundreds of many small time but very influential gurus in other cars. "

Semblance, I had to laugh at your description of the car stickers. It sounds like my trips to mexico where you will see images of the virgin mary and a multitude of saints hanging from people's dashboards.
Is Kracki just as popular with Indians as he is with westerners? I had assumed that Indians would think the deeksha craze was a little silly.

~~~~ He is a popular brand indeed, durga! So are the rest. Some folks like to receive deeksha from almost every guru possible in town. It must be somewhat like a multiple orgasm to them. Guru shopping in the spiritual supermarket. But it is my wonder how krapki got popular in the west. I always wanted to know whats their mode of publicity? Do they publicize in print media or simply the word of of the gullible mouth? Everytime i was in the US, I had always searched for such promotions in dailies but never have found one !

Durga, I just remembered a book, read in college, titled Karma Cola (by Gita Mehta)and wish to recommend you, in case you did not know it. You would like that wicked humor of writing on indian gurus.

Sem, the way I found out about it was flyers posted all over town by a deeksha giver out to save the world by giving as much deeksha as possible. he goes around town with a a carton of flyers and posts them everywhere. He also, last summer, put up several billboards of himself in different places with his website on it. Other D givers are more by word of mouth, I think, and do less publicity. I think deeksha is largely unknown in many parts of the U.S. I just happen to live in a new age hot spot.

Thanks for the book rec. I will look for it. Could use some good humor these days.

With a wife so ugly she has to be God to get any respect, it really is a wonder that people over here will look twice at this krack pot. Course Mrs. Krack pot doesn't seem to have those mole thingies growin on her neck yet like Nirmala Debbie. Still she ain't no ray of sunshine. I got a mule prettier than her and just as enlightened and, as advertised, shaktipat given by Da Free Jack don't cost nearly as much and flyin out here to Dime Box, Texas also cost much less...! What are you waitin for???

When one goes to 21 days process, they brainwash you saying that you must give deeksha to as many people as possible, and make sure as many people as possible come to do the 21 days process. therfor they set you in a mission. So they reach the amount of enlightened ones desired.And they say that your state will deepen according to how many deekshas you give, and also, that the world is in a critic moment, and we must hurry in order to make it.
This is why it became popular.

Kracki seems to have started a new project now. He is now helping conducting an experiment on effects of meditation o n human consciousness on May 20, Global oneness day. Got to wait and see what happens.
