    Eckankar

    The more I read about Eckankar the more I see how much it is like most cults. The lies and the way they view ex-members is pretty much just like all the other cults. It only goes to prove that some people will believe anything. I would copy paste some links but anyone interested can find that...

    Eckankar

    I have wondered how they get new members or if getting new members is high on their list of "things to do". I just have never seen any of that body routing nonsense that Scientology used to do all the time. I did find out that only the very top of the cult gets paid a wage or salary. The local...

    Sounds interesting. You might also want to try doing more of it and see what happens. You could also go to used bookstores and look for used Eckankar books and really get into the books. It would be a way to check it out without organized official Eckankar" getting in the way and trying to...

    Thanks for the chart, mainly because of the name at the top: SUGMAD That was the name I was trying to remember. In the Twitchell book, one of the methods to astral travel was to chant the name "SUGMAD" over and over until the spirit or spirits appear and show you the way to astral travel. I...

    I will post later. Great chart but a little busy in my personal life right now. Have to collect what thoughts I have on Eck at the moment. Talk to you later.:)

    If there ever is a bio pic made about him they should get Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull to play him.

    I don't know either. I don't think I want to know in a way. I only know what I posted in those previous posting on this thread. I do know what Paul Twitchell wrote about that though in his book, "Eckankar" and he spent a few pages writing about the different ways to astral travel. It is possible...

    Sounds like a real cool time. I just may have to frantically start chanting again. I just can't wait for my spirit guides to show me the way. Every day. (Framptonology)

    Yeah, I was always connected to the cult right from the start. Early on I was even living in a sort of a communal living space with other Scientologists. I could never get enough miles away from Scientology people while I was in.

    I remember pre Scientology reading Lobsang Rampa, another liar who made a good living writing books that one would usually find in the psychic/spiritual section of your local bookstore. The difference being that he didn't even try to start a cult. He just wanted to be left alone. I remember him...

    His pic and story is in the link on my first post. The article is from 1995. This is David Lane.

    Eckankar

    I am not an expert on Eckankar but what I have found in just one article is quite enough to keep me occupied for now. He seems to have picked and chosen from various sources. Critic David Lane noticed something else as well. At 17, Lane, who was raised Catholic in the San Fernando Valley...

    Eckankar

    Yes, even though the founder of the cult was a Scientologist it appears that Eckankar has more to do with "astral travelling" or "soul travel". Funny enough, Twitchell was close to the same age as L. Ron and was also a writer. During the ’30s and ’40s, Twitchell was a prolific writer. He’s...

    Eckankar

    Eckankar, EST, and Idenics are offshoots and not surprisingly are listed on Scientology's Enemies List. Scientology even planted operatives such as Mike Simington into Idenics at one pont in time. Why they would even bother a small time group is beyond me. It is almost like a make work project...

    Eckankar

    The story of Eckankar and its founder is rather similar to Scientology and Hubbard in lots of ways. Paul Twitchell the founder, was actually a Scientology staff member for a while. Eckankar is cult just like Scientology. Scientology is worse but that is a difference in degree and magnitude...
