Is Isha Yoga a cult? Is Sadhguru a fraud? – Part 14

Is Isha a cult?

Is Isha a cult?

One will never know but you should be careful when you get into the core of any rituals like they do once you go to the advanced classes…Is Isha a scam or not?

Personal tete-a-tete-  On the last day at lunch, i had to ask him and i did ask him point blank at lunch table if he believes in a God. He did not answer tehe question on 3 tries. Then i said, Sir, its a simple question – do you or do you not believe in a God? To which he asked me if i did.  I said – Yes, i believe in a GOD that Jesus is talking about. He then said he does not talk to Christians. Then he said if i believed, i should not have a question; or that if i have a question, then i do not believe – which is it? A standard pre-meditated trap so to speak. Forgetting fully that the question is for him and instead turned it onto me…and about my belief.  He was so upset when i touched him on the shoulder gently to make peace but  he said in a stern voice, not to patronize him… I asked him if he did not see GOD in me now…He really got livid…but did not answer the origival question. He came to my table, after finishing his lunch and saw me eating a piece of melon and said that the melon is God. There is no god out there he said… I knew this moment that this was more of a cult i was thining it was…. still i will let you decide as i post more in other blogs…

Best Wishes and Cheers….

Is Isha Yoga a Cult? Is Sadhguru a fraud? – Part13

Isha Yoga makes it about a man and not so much about a principle! This is perhaps a tell-tale sign of being a cult. If someone teaches benefits of breathing or meditating its one thing and its totally different when its presented as the only exact sequence of steps and that every one is GOD and that there is NO real God.  Some follow him blindly, because he is charismatic or because he is witty…further signs of being a cult…so much so, that we heard that some even claim Sadhguru can intercede for them if they have to go to the next world. Hmm….

The way he talks or treats those who do not agree to his principles is surely from one who is “enlightened” – right?

Its not about a man….never was and  …never should be…. Neither did Jesus say he is it… He always credited God and encouraged everyone to be able to do things he could and more…. it is always about eternal spiritual truths that everyone that comes to it, may find his own truth in his own journey and in his own way. Some find it in Jesus, some call it Jesus, others live the teachings…. Some call it Buddha, some called it Krishna… I would encourage the reader  to call it what he may, and know it for he is able to know and respect him for his views ….but to always keep knocking or seeking and finding truth upon truth, and precept upon precept ….in our own  life journey…. then the “truth” will  present itself in time as promised in spiritual principles.  

If God almighty has given each a brain, and a choice to make that call, who are you and me; mere mortals to define a path to call the  “melon you are eating as GOD”…. or to “have others intercede on their behalf” or to “call everyone GOD”……and if and when you claim everyone is GOD and everything is GOD…why do you lack anything anyways, money, security and what you need? :) Can you really have it both ways?  Can you really?

You decide and either way my sincere best wishes to pursue your version of truth…

Best Wishes and Cheers….

Is Isha Yoga a cult? Is Sadhguru a fraud? – Part 12

Anyone  can appreciate benefits from regular meditation and from therapeutic yoga stretches, but there is more than meets the eye with this person who claims even a taller order. One thing Isha postulates rather slowly is that there is no God out there! Yet they also present that every thing is God….. peanut you eat, the trees you see and one another! Yes one can see and appreciate the presence of GOD in creation and in each other but to claim that everything is GOD is a tall order!  

Further, when this person, Sadhguru, the founder of Isha Yoga on his associating with corrupt politicians  or how this has become a business with “liability waiver release” forms, with taking away your reasoning, with presenting things how you like and then turning it around, with high fees for classes  in India and US.

 

Also, they may  or may not be truly helping the poor, the ones who are truly in  poverty in India but at least on face value they seem to be  humanitarian and that’s good…

What about  Faith….Fact….. Fiction…?  Isn’t there some amount of  balance and integration and moderation?  Life is not just about yoga, if it were, you could hug a tree and kiss everyone and everything for being GOD.

I appreciate the teachings which are actually taught by every yoga teacher on breath and calming the mind; every other extra-curricular activity and other related voodoo witchcraft yoga is dangerous and could harm you….
