Re: NEW TO FORUM

Hi M.I.A. ,

welcome to the forum. Have you read the book "Shame on You" - if so how did your experience at the "School" compare. ??

If you have not read it - It is a very interesting account.

Best wishes

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

Hi Woodgreen, your post of 2nd April has many issues which should be addressed. But I will confine this response to the issue of "perfection" which you have raised - as it appears to be important to you. No realised soul would claim to be perfect. There are good reasons for that which they...

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

What Jo-Anne says is basically correct as far as I remember. However, SES leaders confused the term "schooling" with "school". Schooling is what Marcilio did with such people as Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo etc. He applied ancient concepts of training the mind which Pythago...

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

Dear AT, many thanks for your interesting questions. To fully answer your questions may need a whole book. However, I will try to keep it as short as possible. FIRST QUESTION - (application of Advaita Vedanta) :- I have already written about the differences between the monastic use and the house-hol...

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

AT et all, To answer questions about what Advaita Vedanta says about any subject is not so easy to put on this forum. As I have been learning over the last 3 months since I joined it. This is because Advaita Vedanta deals with principles which are only offered as guidance for those who wish to follo...

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

Thank you Earlgrey for starting a very valuable stream - I am sure we will all benefit from this. Not to criticise We have also to put these rules into context of Advaita Vedanta, since this is the philosophy which the SES group are promoting. It is recommended in Advaita that you do not hold negati...

Re: SFSK Devotee

THERAPY V SPIRITUAL WORK It is important to clarify the terms used here. "Therapy" I presume is meant to refer to any method of sorting out "problems of thinking" which people have, due to the situations of their life and the people who have had some impact on it -- either or bot...

Re: SFSK Devotee

SAMSKARA - is at the root of MWs post and what flowed from it. OR sanskar as it has been written . - this word appears to be the source of a misunderstanding by SES and those who have been there. The root of the Sanskrit word is SAMS - which relates to - making perfect, make ready, compose, or put t...

(4) Increase in the clarity of ones intellect. etc. etc. If yo...

Re: Mistakes against the Shankaracharya Tradition

Woodgreen & any others to whom it may apply, The ancient tradition began with father to son passing down of sacred scriptures and how to interpret them and put them to practice. This includes the phenomenon of re-birth of the soul - albeit here in the west we have no knowledge of this phenomenon...

Re: The Family Survival Trust

In the spirit of open debate :- The item on cults is quite interesting. But let us look at the main stream religions and see how they score on the list of main points in the third paragraph. For this I will include my own knowledge of 20th and 21st century incidents which can be pointed at the estab...
