Sorry 99agr99 ... you did not put the starting comment as quotes so i thought it came from you, please don´t mind.

On the other hand, BKs in fact look for emotionally and psychologically weaker persons, and ones already challenged by life, but with good sized pockets and start spreading their spiritual traps.

It's a fair question then.

I'd say the simple answer is the idea appealed to the mentality of materialistic 'social climber', Lekhraj Kirpalani, and the original Sindi Om Mandli followers ... and it continues to work for many Indians who are imbued with images of Krishna and Vaikuntha whilst surrounded by oppressive poverty. I think LKs world view was more informed by early Bollywood depictions than accurate psychic visions.

As long ago as the 1980s, many Western BKs had a dissident view of heaven on earth that was far more divine, natural and eglitarian, but they were never official adopted. I guess the old Sindis were just far more into their class/caste world view ... one in which some people are destined to be more happy and contented and materially wealthy than others.

From memory, the status of a cremator was reserved for those BK who had sex ... or the "pyre of lust" as it is called ... in this life and so perhaps it really just has a metaphorical value?

I am not a believer in the BKs' future. In my opinion, their "Golden Age" full of grand palaces, formal gardens, courts and flying machines is in the here and now.

Dear Brahmins and non Brahmins

Om Shanti

There is no guarantee your family will take care of you when you have no money, if you have too much money they can fight each other for money too. It's totally your karma or your luck to your experience.

Number one is to eat healthy like vegetarian meals and herbal antioxidants and do exercise and meditation regularly to control your emotions. Then you will age graciously and do not worry about death. Baba never promises he will take care of you when you get older. And only one in a billion self-transform and the rest of them will pay the price for a karmic account. Why do you worry about death accept reality and live cautiously do some savings but not too much?

Poor people live here too. Raja Yoga does not promise you healing the body, it promises you healing the soul. so you must learn to live with disease and suffering. Baba did not talk like Jesus and promised miraculous healing.

It's not the advice the BKs give. Perhaps they have changed but up to my time it was "grind your bones in service", give up sleep, & hand over all your money & property to the Yagya. I knew of Indian Brothers who handed over 100% of their salary, & then got pocket money back from the centre.

In the USA, under Hansa Raval, they were arranging bogus visa to get Indian BKs over to earn money working in IT. It may still be going on.

What did you see happening with the elderly or infirm in India? Are you still in contact with either the BKs or PBKs?
