the website link [to SES]?is not accessible via the Junior Schools section of the site, only the Senior Schools. As the Junior Schools are the primary intake point, this is the point where the SES needs to be most transparent. I'm totally disgusted. Surely this is illegal. mm, I hope you won?t take...

Well though I was told not to discuss the initiation, I personally found it a physically painful experience - like having something drilling down into my skull from the top of my head... It was definately physically painful and it made me lean forward - something which Mr White seemed alarmed about...

There's no doubt in my mind that the hitting of girl's in St James was sexual abuse. If a girl was to be hit she was told to come to the front of the class pull her knickers down, lift her dress up and bend over. The teacher then hit her with her bare hand. I was never punished in this way but it h...

3 weeks is WAAAAY too late to realize something you should know before you register...and which would be so simple for the School to communicate if it wanted to --, that they are "coming from a spiritual basis and not an academic one."

Ross,
you think Vasudevanada is working the ?homeless, destitute look?? Seated on a throne, surrounded by attendants whose heads are at a lower level, and shaded with an ornate parasol someone else is holding up?

[the children?s schools] teachers are given this example [coercion] by their SES tutors; The crucial difference: adults are free to leave the SES but children at St James are [not] This goes right to the heart of the matter. Whether the SES calls itself a religion or not, parents are legally within...

Whilst it was touched upon as part of the history and framework of St James it was not identified as DIRECTLY relevant to the inquiry into discipline policy... So the ...

Also, two other things ? there is some Hindu tradition which frowns on crossing the ocean ? I?m not at all well-informed about this but something about how an orthodox Hindu can walk far & wide, and can cross river-boundaries, but should never cross an ocean. Some interpret this prohibition as a...

Would be pretty surprised if Vasudevananda Saraswati visited any of the SES or children's schools; he's got enough to do with the succession dispute over his own leadership. There are three different claimants to the Jytoirmath (northern) lineage, and although Vasudevananda is recognized as the legi...
