Re: SFSK Devotee

While I can't speak to the purpose of this comment (or your purpose in remembering it), I can say that evidence for the proposition does exist in the Scriptures. It is said (in the Yoga-Vashistha or perhaps the Puranas I think) that the sage Vashistha once courted an Apsara (a celestial nymph) and c...

Re: Rules, regulations, and directions made in SES/SOP/SFSK

Fourth, would still really appreciate a direct answer from someone about what SES advised on how a person who is banned from criticizing should respond to wrongdoing. Surely, the SES is not suggesting that Jimmy Savile's BBC colleagues were right not to criticize what he was doing and stand by and ...

Re: Rules, regulations, and directions made in SES/SOP/SFSK

Firstly, thank you Earlgrey for a valuable thread. To apply Advaita Vedanta to the conditions of the world, is like going to a doctor for a cure - then after you have been given the medicine you start giving it out to other people who you think need it. This is not a perfect analogy - but you get th...

Re: SFSK Devotee

How do you distinguish between "spiritual" and "non-spiritual" content?

Re: SFSK Devotee

Dr. Alan, I have not made this up, as I guess you would like to believe that I have. I don't want to believe you made up anything. However, I think someone else made it up, and you now believe them. That's much the same thing really. In any case, in neither of your quotes was the genesis of 'mind' d...

Re: SFSK Devotee

Dr. Alan, You say that spiritual work is concerned with the perennial questions of who we "truly" are, and whether we have souls. You then include the "soul" in your framework. It seems you have just assumed that we all have souls - in which case you have rendered the question (o...

Re: SFSK Devotee

From that night on I decided that I would only take in the information that was relevant and held meaning and truth for me and just ignore the rest While this is admirable - it does present a slight problem: By only taking what you think holds meaning and truth for you, are you not simply comparing...

Re: SFSK Devotee

I suppose one of the main questions would have to be: "are the results distinguishable?" By that I mean the following: Is there any effect of doing "spiritual practice" that sets it apart from what you'd expect from the beneficial effects of therapy? I think the answer to this is...

Re: SFSK Devotee

First, a bit of context: well thats it for me, this will be my last post.I will not be part of a forum where people have to resort to using derogatory gutter terminology. I am here to defend the SFSK, and to challenege some of you anally retentive people. ----- Enlightened, I challenge you to find o...

Re: SFSK Devotee

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

Hello again Nick - nice to see you're still around. 1. I think Mrs Mavro made a valid point. The school is setup for westerners. Try telling people to worship the gods. It is guaranteed there will no longer be any school around. The school is meant to gradually bring you to a certain level if you al...

Hello "enlightened" and welcome. Some others have posted since I began to write this, so I apologise if it seems disjointed. Ella has summarised the main points very well, so the only things I can add to the comments above are the following: 1. You said: Mrs Mavro has mellowed and made som...
