Cosmic Connie Kicks Her Some Kracki Ass

File under: Gurubusting and Satscams

She's the whipping mistress of the New-Wage, a ravishing brunette with a mind of steel wielding a sure and sharp pen. She's presently slicing and dicing the Kracki over at her Whirling Musings blog, where she breaks it down in a way that has us whipped too:
Love ’em or hate ’em, it seems clear that Kalki and Amma and the crew at Oneness U have some grandiose plans for humanity. One big goal is to effect a critical mass of enlightenment in the human race by the year 2012. 2012, in case you aren’t aware, is the new Y2K. That’s the year when the world may or may not end, depending upon which nutty web site you land on. According to the Oneness U folks, however, if their critical-mass plan works, 2012 will see the birth of a new Golden Age of Humanity, which will spread all over the world.

The web site of Oneness U affiliate The Oneness Centre Australia ’splains in simple scientific terms how the critical-mass project works:
The divine plan is that when 64,000 people, spread all over the globe, have reached the oneness state, the effect will spontaneously spread to the rest of humanity. This will occur through what is known as the morphogenic fields**, by the action of the ‘100th monkey syndrome’. It is, as Malcolm Gladwell says in The Tipping Point, a "positive" epidemic. The virtue of an epidemic, after all, is that just a little input is enough to get it started, and it can spread very, very quickly and this can lead to permanent change of a massive nature.
While there are probably enough New-Wage concepts in that one paragraph to make the average skeptic’s head explode, the one thing that stuck out for me was that tired old hundredth-monkey banner, which, though loosely based on a real incident, is mostly b.s. in the context in which New-Wagers employ it. But Oneness U has apparently dragged it out again in order to push their critical-mass enlightenment agenda. (I suppose one could call the hundredth-monkey story in this context a "turban legend," but the Oneness U folks don’t normally sport that particular type of headgear.)
Make no mistake: Kalki Bhagavan is the biggest scamming con man guru presently in operation on the planet. Everything about the Oneness Movement is bullshit. It's a gross, vicious, greedy and ruthless perversion of Vedanta. They rape the highest truths of the Upanishads and make them slaves in their avaricious and pernicious orgy of psychotic grandiosity. And every one of their devotees gets it in the ass (through their wallet) as their heads are drummed dumb with nonsense about 2012 and the Kracki's eventual coming to be recognized as THE ONE, as opposed to all those thousands of other THE ONEs roaming the world expecting the same recognition some day.

PS: Don't forget to check out Connie's kicking her some Maharishi ass, too.

Why do big name players like Nick Arjuna Ardagh (spelling)? fall for the Kracki and write books about them (he was a Poonjaji disciple, wasn't Poonjaji enough, and wouldn't he be rolling over in his grave if he knew his disciple was following and endorsing this crap?

And what about Ron Roth, another well known person who has written many books and endorses this crap. Why are they falling for it. Anybody else famous fall for it too that I don't know about?

I love how they invoke Gladwell, to try and eke out a little credibility. Nice try, no cigar.

Just because someone is famous doesn't mean that that person is not an idiot. And it is relatively famous people whom people like Kalki love to recruit as seems to give them a certain air of legitimacy.

People like Arjuna and Ron Roth no doubt have some personal needs to be fed, and they have found some way of accomplishing this their involvement with Kalki.

They will probably move on after awhile as scandals inevitably emerge. Hopefully they will be able to publicly admit that they made a mistake in endorsing Kalki, but they may not be able to undo the harm they have done through their endorsements.

Who is Gladwell?

Anonymous said... Who is Gladwell?

..........

The only Gladwell I ever knew was a Homer Gladwell from over in New Waverly, Texas. He was basically a chicken farmer whose shit was much admired for it collard green growin potency! Homer's daddy, also named Homer was well known in the area for comin up aginst the Beatniks Allen Ginsberg, William Borroughs, Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady who were livin for a time closer to Old Waverly than New. Somehow these fellows got along with Homer Senior. That's all I know about him...

Anon 3, Gladwell is Malcolm Gladwell, author of bestselling books like "The Tipping Point" and "Blink." Kracki and gang, or at least their Aussie affiliates, are using Gladwell's ideas (in "The Tipping Point"), along with the hundredth-monkey b.s., to push their critical-mass-enlightenment agenda.

Dear Cosmic Connie,

There are plenty of other Aussies who have fallen under the sway of deeply, more deeply, and even more deeply deluded people calling themself enlightenend... or at least, holding onto the storyline for the sake of capturing new recruits into their hopeful empire building.

The Aussies are not immune to these delusions any more than the rest of humanity.

There have been some very serious cults built on Aussie soil with the help of seeming members in good standing of society.

Morale to the story, it is not as it always is sold to appear... you know this already.

Cosmic Connie, not only are you ravishing but you are sharp too. Can you post an expose on Dr David Hawkins. I would like to hear your take on him. I still can't make up my mind and would love to hear your take on him.

Thanks, Anon. Re Hawkins:

Our host here was ahead of the game as usual, having paid tribute to Hawkins earlier this year (April 23).

The same person who had contacted Jody about Hawkins had also contacted me, so I gave Hawkins my customary superficial treatment on April 24.

I think I'm probably pretty much in agreement with Jody that Hawkins is slinging pseudo-scientific crap. I'm math-illiterate so I honestly can't give a real critique of Hawkins' work. But I think I know crap when I see it.

To the Anon who commented about the Aussies:
I know Australia is a hotbed for New-Wage stuff -- after all, Rhonda Byrne, perpetrator of "The Secret," is an Aussie. And that ACCESS Energy Transfer crap that began with a California real estate agent seems to have taken quite a hold in Australia and NZ.

But there are also increasing numbers of skeptics and cynics there as well. Many Aussies are livid about the lone Australian "star" of "The Secret," David Scammer...er...Schirmer.

At any rate, I hope any Aussies seeing this don't think I was picking on our friends Down Under. It's just that when I was Googling for additional info about Oneness U, that Aussie affiliate site popped up. And it happened to have a good concise summary of the "64,000 deeksha recipients by 2012" plan.

Cosmic Connie, accordin to the Baptist Worship Today magazine, there are 64,000 Baptists in Wales! How does this allign with Shreee Kracki's plans to save the world? Or will these 64,000 practicin Baptists in Wales make null and void the activities of Shreee Kracki!

"Make no mistake: Kalki Bhagavan is the biggest scamming con man guru presently in operation on the planet."

Damn right! I remember seeing Mr. Kracki's 'bhaktas' taking his photo in a chariot of sorts on a city ride or something, singing songs and what not. Always wondered how seemingly intellectual people call fall for this crap.

Keep up your good work! I am putting a link to your blog on my own... you wouldn't mind, would you?

Not as long as you write to correct me if and when I get something wrong regarding Indian politics.

Its pretty easy to NOT go wrong with Indian politics. But as far as my help is concerned, Consider it done! :)

I will also add fodder to your 'gurubusting' whenever I can, as a bonus! ;)

Just received the December issue of our local Unity church's print newsletter. On the "Unity Bookstore" page is a list of their current top 10 bestsellers. In the number one spot is "Awakening Into Oneness" by Arjuna Ardagh. Number 2 (probably in more ways than one) is "Deeksha" by Kiara Windrider. (I'm sure those are the authors' given names in both cases!) I guess the church's senior minister is really spreading the Oneness message after his vacation to India in September.
