This Is Your Brain On Krack(i)

File under: Satscams and Gurus Clockin' Dollars

A tipster sent us this .pdf file, currently being distributed among the Bhagavan Kalki's dupes and marks. This load of bunkum attempts to explain the "effects of Deeksha" on the "brains of several people at different stages of the diksha process, using a very sensitive electromagnetic sensor."

That's like trying to see the bottom of the ocean with a pair of binoculars over the side of boat. But hey, you've got to work with the tools that are available, right? The article goes on to state: "a healthy integration of spiritual awakening into human life always comes with left frontal lobe dominance."

We find this completely unscientific assumption a particularly frightening development. It reminds us of a certain historical figure's penchant for finding blond-haired, blue-eyed people the best with which to build a master race.

Taking a page from the Mararishi's TMâ„¢ propaganda playbook, the article continues:
One very interesting aspect of these findings was that the brain hardware of these people was more reflective of permanent enlightenment than their current conscious experience. It seems that diksha first installs the neurobiological hardware of enlightenment and the software in form of the experience slowly catches up.
Never mind the fact that science doesn't even acknowledge the existence of self-realization, let alone that nobody really knows what its "neurobiological hardware" would look like on a brain scan, or how it could be installed with a mere touch to the forehead by some dumb-assed dupe on a spiritual ego trip.

But when we got to this passage, we could read no more, mostly because our monitor was covered in last night's dinner and this morning's Earl Grey:
Ron Roth is the founder of Celebrating Life Ministries and a great spiritual teacher and healer. In his process in Golden City, he awakened to his own avatarhood and was declared by Bhagavan as an "Avatar of causeless Love."
Another marginal Western spiritual teacher falls by his own spiritual ego, a near perfect reflection of the Kracki's own psychotic grandiosity. It seems that many formerly reputable spiritual teachers are also falling into ignorance by the same means. A friend with inside knowledge of the California satsang scene explains:
I tell you Jody, everyone here I know who is into this Kalki business as far as I am concerned has gone completely nuts and lost whatever common sense they previously had. Some of these people were not nut cases before, or perhaps they were just closet nut cases, and this pushed them over the edge, I don't know. I can tell you that there is no talking sense to any of them, and I have now ceased trying to speak logically with them as it has just led to arguments... Very few are above lemminghood, I'm discovering.
The Kracki's evil seems to find its way into people by preying on and then inflating their spiritual egos. We couldn't have come up with a more nefarious plan to spread spiritual ignorance were we the Fallen Angel himself. But there is a silver lining to this dark cloud. Those who fall for the Kracki's flattery were obviously in it for their own self-glorification. Their allegiance to the Kracki exposes this, and thus their own failings as teachers of spirituality.

So if they love the Kracki, they ain't got smack to teach you about spirituality. At least until they come to terms with their own hidden desires for name and fame.

I agree with what facedog said. I have seen all the hoopla happen around me here in Southern California. But then again, this is the land of Bikram yoga and Hollyweird, so it's not a surprise that people have been hoodwinked.

I almost had the wool pulled over my eyes, too, before coming to the realization that "mass enlightenment" is just what I had suspected it to be: too good to be true. I have noticed just how automatic the progression with most people seems to be, from attending local dikshas at anywhere between $20 to $108 ( note the auspicious number!) a pop, to discussing that they're going to India to do the euphemistically named "process" soon.

To be honest, I have watched some of the videos featuring prominent Indian "dasas", as they are called, and Anandagiri, among some others, struck me as particularly humble, graceful, and yes, perhaps even very enlightened. I just feel like somehow the initial altruism of the movement has degenerated into a circus with lots of groupthink psychology that everyone ends up buying into, as though they have lost all capacity for viveka.

Still, to each his or her own. If it gives people some peace of mind at the expense of their wallets, who am I to argue? ;^)

they have lost all capacity for viveka.

And enlightenment without viveka (discrimination) is about as useful as a car with no wheels, on blocks. You ain't getting anywhere with that.

Henceforth all the good that happens anywhere in the universe, may be attributed to Kracki and his devotees. Please read
this and be enlightened.

I think we should declare this blog as the Official Sri Kalki Bhagavan Website - considering that you give them so much publicity.

Insider info is that many old followers are leaving, however, new ones are getting caught in their net.

You have been assimilated.

That's makes an ass out of you, the Kracki and anyone else who has fallen into the emotrance of false enlightenment he craps out into the world as his "gift".
