Self respect is not a matter of what you are doing in your life, but rather of how you are doing it. It requires that you bring quality and virtue into each action, whatever that action maybe.

For God's sake man this is a cult.

It is a doomsday cult. And they talk to the founder (who died I guess a century back) through a medium. It is the Indian equivalent of Scientology.

Please as a Westerner do not make the error that all who deal in the Dharma are fine human beings.

There are plenty of charlatans and plenty of plain weirdos.

There are very few "real" organisations anymore that belong to Hinduism. The only one in your part of the world is Vedanta Society of New York.

Prime Minister Modi must respect this cult of weirdos enough to not ignore her passing:

I wonder what's the connection to Theravada. :popcorn:

Death is the connection, of course. :thumbsup:
