    Once, a journalist in Europe or America—I don’t remember where—asked me this stupid question: “Why is breath so important?”

    RS is such an idiot -the journo means to ask why is pranayam/breathing exercise important. He is only responding to what AOL calls “breath” – which really is pranayam/other breathing techniques.

      This post is really good. When I took the AOL basic course I was made to believe that the teacher is spontaneous. But I had suspicions. Now I know that they were just acting out a script.
      I am waiting for your posts on TTC part 2. Also, please give teacher notes for Padmasadhana.

        Yeah, you call that is a ‘wit’?, at best it is a cheap shot to those delusional followers who are brainwashed to think that they are special or super humans, so that he may look to those sheep with lot of humor and wit.

        One can find various resources of AOL using word ‘breath’ for Pranayama and other breathing techniques. (ex. http://www.srisri.org/content/know-breath-know-life)

        see the video Anonymous referring to:

        Journalist simply used ‘AOL Jorgan’ to ask a question to RS, RS conveniently now picks up literal meaning and trying to make fun of the journalist (outside world – not part of cult), this is typical ‘us vs them’ technique of cults,
        (us – the chosen special ones vs them – rest of the world, see more for cults http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DGKJrgfHcw )

        If you ask, a Kid will tell you what sets apart humans from other species, the thinking mind (critical thinking), brainwashed sheep simply laughs for those lame jokes and call it great ‘wit’. if you remove the very thing (critical thinking) that sets apart would you call that person special (and superhuman) or downgrade and call a sheep ? Go figure.

    “…. Take it for granted that they are all going to do the course…”

    This is such a common tactic in AOL – basing things on projection instead of truth. Learn to be a good actor and reality will follow seems to be an underlying message in AOL.

    Which is why many people who are in AOL become fake – fake smiles, fake confidence, fake compassion. They delude themselves into believing that life is getting better and that they are progressing on the spiritual path – while only the reverse is true. How nonspiritual it is to live a lie.

    Can’t blame RS for believing in faking – it seems to be working for him. He’s become so rich and powerful, just by playing the role of a charismatic “guru”. But I feel spirituality must go the other way – make you more connected with truth, god, yourself, life.

      1. The video only represents how silly sometimes reports get by asking such unreasonable questions. This is so common to them. They are well known to asking ‘how you feel’ to people in the even of major calamities and accidents as well. so I really don’t know if you are trying to justify the report in asking silly questions.
      2. Using just a very small section of a complete conversation is insufficient to guage the essence of that conversation. So your own ‘wit’ of writing ‘witty’ comments on that video is baseless and fragile and doesnot have a solid grounding.
      3. The AOL has done loads and loads of good work to the society and people who have been effected by difficult situations be it poverty, floods, earthquakes, wars and like wise to people who were effected personal issues(due to stress of day to day needs). All this work is ‘Visible’ work and definitely not ‘Acting’. Do you feel you are the one and only ‘genius’ to have realised, and do you feel that the rest of the world comprising of Statesment, Administrators, people who have worked for more years than you lived are dumb in their attempt to follow …
      Dear friend, please don’t make baseless statements on these people who are very seriously and tirelessly working for a better living of others, and not living a mere selfish life like you and i do.

    Typical sociopathic narcissists like RS actually start believing in their own projected personalities – that is partly why such persons can be so convincing. One cannot carry on playing a role 24/7 for decades, unless he/ she starts slowly believing in it themselves…

    I just saw that the price from TTC is $5500 for this year. Wow. I remember when it was less than half that a few years back. Perhaps this will influence less people to do it though, so it might be a good thing.

    Hi!

    As someone whose plan to take TTC catapulted her into questioning the whole AoL Bamboozle, I never took TTC and I remain very curious as to what the process is like.

    Could/would anyone on the blog who has been through TTC (1 or 1&2) be so kind as to send me or publish a personal account? Or if anyone has the notes still can I see them? I’d be ever so obliged.

    best
