Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

Hi Ella. M.C. I thought you would be interested in what Swami Shree Swaroopananda Saraswati ji said about charging money for initiation. Q: Brahmananda Saraswati did not charge any fees when he used to initiate? Shankaracharya: This is a principle. A quotation from Goswami Tulsidas:- "The guru...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

Hello Ahamty2, Thank you ..your post covered many good points. The part where you described the story of the NZ Wellington group, breaking the bonds with Londons' SES and then, Michael Mavros subsequent 'reaction' .. is so very typical of reactions I have seen (in varying degrees) over the years. It...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

I will know each and every one of them because of my position in the Sydney SOP. I remember very clearly to this day my confrontation with Michael Mavro and I warned him way back then about his behaviour. I also remember very well, being criticized, chastised and ostracized by my fellow members of ...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

However, some of the responsibility must rest with those members of the Sydney SOP who followed them and helped them start up the SFSK. Did their egos deceive them into thinking they would be more important in the SFSK under the Mavros, when in fact they were only being used by them for their own e...

Re: Sydney SOP 70's. A Different Perspective.

The truth, imho, is that like me, you were faced with The Truth and like me, you flunked it, backed off, showed the white card, gave up, chickened out, crashed out, ran for the hills. To me this is exactly how school made you feel .. It is part of their brainwashing .. "if you backed off, chic...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

How it will be received overall amongst the current SFSK students is anybody's guess perhaps. MW Yes a good point MW .. Possibly many people are so happy with the 'club type' atmoshere .. Such nice people and nice material about spiritual things, leading to a feeling of doing and being something wo...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

Middle Way, Thanks for your encouraging words. It is because we, would like to be told by others .. if they had found out these things first .. That we feel obliged to speak. By saying nothing, it is if we didn't care for others. Now whether they have ears to hear is not our concern. MM used to say....

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

Hello actuallythere,

A link or similar will be provided to the audio and or documents.
How this is to be done has not been discussed as yet.

I myself am unsure as to how this will be done ..computer things are not my area.

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

Mr M often said to us at residentials .."that everybody wants to hear truth. Even the hardened criminal does not want to be lied to by a fellow criminal" This is still hard for me to believe, to think about his words ... so often used ...in light of the discovery of these lies of spiritual...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

Hello actuallythere, Thank you for the good point .. I certainly don't want this to be dismissed as hearsay. Because it is most definately NOT hearsay. The students who went to India have the recording. It is also at the moment being made into a document, and a link will soon be provided here for an...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

Just a few words to add to my post .. These allegations were first made around 2004 -2005. Re wrong mantra and MM having no authority to initiate. But most could not possibly believe .. That they had been deliberately deceived. Anyone interested can contact the students (you know who they are ..) Al...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

The core or the heart of SFSK is meditation. It was the reason that I stayed for over 20 years in an organisation that had many shortcomings. It was always justified by remembering the knowledge, that we were under the umbrella of a realised sage, with a mantram given by him to us that would lead u...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

Hi Middle Way, Thank you for your thoughtful post, and all of your posts. I too hope that current SFSK people are reading them and MOTS posts. I mean't foolish also in regard to not being sensible enough to check for ourselves .. especially in the criteria of the authenticity of SFSK'S initiation ce...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

INITIATION IN SFSK I am astonished .. at myself, and everyone else currently in Nina M's school .. That no one checks anything for themselves as to the validity of things and the practises happening there. Granted that anyone, anywhere, can go to a class in any suburb and learn so called meditation...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

The main requirement to be an SFSK tutor is to read out written material and if a curly question is asked repeat what you just read out, or ask “well what do you think is the answer?” and when those fail either say “who’s asking?” or “you need to be aware that’s your ego asking that, up to its usua...
