- I wanted to believe in Maharaji. I wanted to see the best
of his messages of simplicity and inner peace come to reality
for me. I wanted to see a kind, caring man who could help me
calm my mind. He said it came down to a decision...to trust.
A blind leap? This is something I could not do. Instead, I started
searching for information and slowly learned more about Maharaji's
history, his personal life, and his "knowledge techniques".
I did not find this information through any current premie or
any of Maharaji's appointed representatives. Why? (from an ex-aspirant)
- In New York you said: "Listen to videos and questions
get answered, because the answers are within you"
Can you suggest to whom I could address specific questions
I have come across? It seems to me the videos do not really address
these matters and further more seems to echo the same basic themes:
participation, practice and gratitude.
It is my opinion, if I do not address the questions I have that
I can not trust in myself enough to put my trust in M. How can
I accept him openly if I am unsure of myself? How can I ask for
knowledge if I doubt in it's potential? How can I become truly
sincere, until I fully explore that which I am asking for?
- If as a Master you are really prepared to allow people to
protect you through lies and cover-up, as is alleged, then how
can you expect us to trust you in matters of the heart and Knowledge,
especially if you won't address these matters directly?
- In an article that appeared in The Sydney Morning Herald
John Macgregor wrote that you 'thrive on the mixed message: independence/devotion,
honesty/secrecy, trust yourself/trust the master. One half of
the mixed message empowers and expands, the other half intimidates
and reduces; one half provokes love, the other half fear; one
half liberates, the other half enslaves.' Can you not see that
giving out such mixed messages causes confusion and makes it
hard for us to trust you?
