Guruphiliac: Another Star Over The Side

Another Star Over The Side

File under: Satscams and Gurus to the Stars

Guy Ritchie has allegedly abandoned the S.S. Kabbalah Centre. Furious after his latest movie was savaged by critics, Mr. Madonna has apparently had enough:
He thinks his new gangster flick, Revolver has suffered as a result... Guy is devastated by the mauling the movie... he believes he should have spent more time on set... He also regrets following his wife’s advice and including references to the kooky clan in the film, because critics now view it as a shameless advert for the spiritual following.
We're really feeling for Guy right now. His faux-dom wife's grandiosity has been his undoing. He was once England's new cinematic hope, a Cockney Quentin Tarantino. Now he's seen as the lap dog of an aging pop princess and a shill for her wacky religion.

There's sure to be a mighty rumbling at their English country manor when they return from the Toronto Film Festival. Will Guy hold his ground and continue to can the Kabbalah, or will he coming padding back to his mistress for his leash and a belly rub.

Meanwhile, we hear the Kabbalah Centre PR machine is in super-duper-quadruple red-string alert mode. With K-Fed attempting to read Deepak Chopra; their Madonna-lite, Britney Spears, may not be long for their coffers. And with Guy jumping ship, they may be about to be the cause of the most spectacular celebrity divorce since Jen and Brad. There are interesting times ahead in the celebriverse, all courtesy of the Rabbis Berg and their satscam.

Jody: what this has to do with "gurus"? Or is it that now that any religion, new age movement, spiritual path, is now game?

We have Rick Ross' anti-cult blog for that already....

The Truth about Siddha Yoga
My name is Joan Radha Bridges, I was on tour with Swami Muktananda 1974-1982. I was sexually abused by Swami Muktananda, my story can be read at www. , I have attemped to give just the factsof the abuse, along with Lester Strong's response to a letter I sent at the time. I attempted to communicate with Gurumayi ,as my story and the responses reveal . I was completely dismissed .My hope has been to find a place of healing for the many girls abused by Muktananda. I have personally spoken to those as young as 15 at the time of the abuse.

Sally Kempton aka. Swami Durgananda as well as Swami Chidvilasnanda and many other Siddha Yoga Swamis ,and others involved at high levels of the Cult are complicit in the cover up of the not only sexual abuse in Siddha Yoga by the leader Swami Muktananda, but also I know of financial impropriety during Muktananda's time, and during Gurumayi's time.

There is no doubt Ms. Kempton signed papers, as did many others that left after being unable to continue in the Siddha path due to their own integrity being so incredibly compromised.I would love to hear Sally's response to my story.
Sally...... we are waiting....... waiting such a long time..
I am here my name is Joan Radha

what this has to do with "gurus"?

The Kabbalah Centre is run by the Berg family. The elder "Rav" Berg is purported to be a divine person. His son Yehuda is going to run it after the Rav dies.

And that's what it has to do with gurus.

Hi Joan.

Thanks so much for bringing your experience to the blog. However, it would be more effectively placed in the comments of the latest Sally Kempton entry. If you were seeking to reach out to Sally and/or other ex-devotees, you'd probably find more contact there.
