The Little Kracki Doesn't Fall Far From The Tree

File under: Satscams

After being lambasted in the Indian press for drugging his devotees and making off with their money, it looks like the discredited Kalki Bhagavan and his Oneness Movement are trying to rebrand themselves as the One World Academy, an organization which appears to be run by his son Krishna and daughter-in-law Preetha. The last time we heard about these two, they were summoned to the court to explain their shady financial dealings:
The [public interest litigation] was filed in the Madras High Court in November 2002 and apart from the ‘godman’ and his wife, several relatives including his son, NKV Krishna and his daugher-in-law Preetha were made respondents…

The report goes on to say that of this sum, Preetha had invested Rs 1.38 crore in the acquisition of shares. The report states that in a list that Krishna gave the Income Tax department, he has admitted that he, his wife and their companies and trusts owned as many as 33 vehicles. Giri also stated in the report that he had received gifts worth [over $1,000,000] and that they were mostly from abroad and “that he could not say exactly that they were for the movement”. The donations were further given as gifts to various persons, as loans to various companies and he had also used a major part.
And now, they have a new enterprise, the One World Academy, and lookie who's the "inspiration" for it all:
One World Academy draws its inspiration from Sri Bhagavan, the founder of the Oneness Movement. Our Faculty forever cherishes and acknowledges the unique blessing of learning directly from Sri Bhagavan over two decades. His wisdom and love have touched our lives and we express deep gratitude to him.
Since the media and authorities came and burned his last pasture, the Kracki and his family have just gone and fenced in a new one, and according to a recent tip, they are looking for more sheeple to fleece in Aspen, Colorado.

Too bad Hunter S. Thomson isn't there to deal with it anymore.

1000th Post! Crooked Christ Still Crooked

File under: Gurubusting, Satscams and The Siddhi of PR

[Ed.note: For those who care, this is the 1000th entry on this blog.]

Today, a Kaleshwar insider sent a revealing comment about this notorious satscammer:
Kaleshwar knows little humility himself anymore. Last year he told many of us that he has now achieved greater power than Kali herself.

He's praying upon those who are desperate to believe in something. His teachers will eventually relate to you that he, (or deferentially Shirdi Sai Baba), chose you to become a student through some divine knowledge of your soul's readiness… but really this is psychological warfare against your natural doubt.

You are meant to think... "What if he's right? What if I am special. I will miss something."

…and suddenly, you'll be spending another $1008.00 for a process, or a useless blessed trinket.
Wackadoo guru, scheming flimflam man, or both? Whichever, he's not worth your time, and most definitely not worth your money.

How To Be A Bigtime Guru

File under: Gurubusting and The Siddhi of PR

Step 1: Make up a fanciful mythology about your youth:
Kaleshwar did not speak for the first seven years of his life and would often accept only a single drop of water as his daily sustenance. When asked years later the reason for this unusual behavior, he said, simply, that he was absorbing cosmic energy. Miracles occurred around him: once his grandfather observed the divine appearance of the Goddess Saraswati standing guard over him while he slept; another time, it was a king cobra, its mantel spread, that shaded him as he napped soundly on the ground in the backyard at his grandfather’s farm.
Don't be fooled, folks. This guy is a crook.

(Thanks, Semblanceji!)
