The latest Con scheme of SriSri
The Art of Living Cooperation launches a new product.
On July 25th 2010 AOL launched its latest product. In just five days one could become a Sahaj teacher.

not sure how long this will be accessible.
This would be the crowning moment for those who are truly special and consider themselves the “Chosen ones” they can add another notch on their belt, and say “see I am a Sahaj teacher not just a part one teacher”.
The requirements to be considered for this elite new program, not just any requirements, but those that actually benefited the AOL Corporation are:
Have you completed Guru Puja phase 1? Course Date_________________ Yes No
Have you completed Guru Puja phase 2? Course Date_________________ Yes No
Have you completed at least 3 Art of Silence (Part 2) courses? Yes No
Have you taken one Art of Silence Course with Sri Sri? Yes No
If we add all these course fees the AOL cooperation would have made a substantial profit under the pretext of creating a better person and humanity. At least 3 Art of Silence (Part 2) courses, I wonder if that was also cognized by the Guru. Makes a lot of business sense though.
It has already been mentioned that the Sahaj meditation is a copy of Transcendental Meditation with a small twist. I can vouch for this since I have done both. Central to the initiation is the Guru Puja. The Guru Puja was created by Maharishi out of various parts (see posts on the website). The TM movement considers the Guru Puja as very sacred and only accessible to the teachers of TM. Consider it as being in total control.
The AOL Cooperation saw a great opportunity to create revenue by creating a need with their devotees and thus developed the Guru Puja Course phase 1 and Phase 2. breaking it into parts to be able to charge more. Very wise business decision, create a need deliver the product and charge the maximum.
The Sahaj TTC course fee is USD 2.000,- for the 5 days instructions. But there is another requirement:
“I also understand that I MUST have successfully completed Guru Puja Phase 1 and Guru Puja Phase 2 in order to be eligible to apply for the course. I must pass a Puja pronunciation and performance review on the first day of class in order to continue with the Sahaj training. “
Based on the recent teachers that are being created (drone robots really) I wonder if they will really enforce this, and if they do and one does not pass they will probably say the GURU does not think you are ready yet and keep your USD 2.000,-
To me the most appalling aspect of this new product is that in just 5 days the AOL cooperation is creating teachers who will teach mediation based on god knows what formula, to choose the mantra’s for people. Again Sahaj is copied from TM and choosing a devotee’s mantra in TM is not based on the persona of the devotee (or initiate) yet simply based on their age (see post on the website).
In the TM movement the teacher traning course (TTC) takes at least 3 months (lots of training and meditating) at a hefty price of (around) USD 14.000,-. The AOL cooperation has made a strategic business decision to shorten the time frame and lower the fee. The goal then will be to increase volume, not quality. The mission will be to create as many teachers, Sahaj TTC will become the new flagship.
The AOL cooperation has once again copied something and watered it down. Even the part one course can now be taken in JUST three days. So now you need to sign them up, process them through the course and get them out, and on the second day of the course get them to commit to bringing their friends and family. The excuse used is that 3 days format makes it easier for people to commit (time wise). From a business perspective it is a brilliant strategy, because you can easily focus on larger volumes, and increase your revenue and do this over and over.
Excuse me the above paragraph was a side angle.
What scares me is that these teachers will go out and teach without having the adequate training (just 5 days). Not knowing how much damage they will do to innocent people and at worse not being able to handle volatile situations. While believing their Guru’s grace will be with them at all times. I wonder how he will do this when he is flying around first class and staying in 5 star hotels.
In the end it is obvious that the Guru is not nor has never been a spiritual master, but is actually a hardcore CEO of a very profitable company. I am sure that when he came out of his 10 days of silence he did not cognize the Kriya but actually finished his Maters in Business Administration (M.B.A) and created the AOL foundation, ooops sorry incorporated the AOL company.
The little giant has awakened.
