Re: Mistakes against the Shankaracharya Tradition

GM (aka N.W.)- You must have misunderstood my PM to you which simply said "Hi, I thought your post was more appropriate in the 'Mistakes --' stream" . Which was not a request for you to move it this stream. But as you have done it, you now have two copies of a post which is clearly not a g...

Re: Mistakes against the Shankaracharya Tradition

Re: Mistakes against the Shankaracharya Tradition

One of my reasons to engage with this forum is to try and correct some of the negative attitudes I have seen with relation to the Indian Holy tradition and its truly honest advocates (by which I do not mean SES leaders).

Re: Mistakes against the Shankaracharya Tradition

Bonsai -- the quote I gave from the Bhagavad Gita answers your query about "OK not to follow the path". Any person who truly lives their life by the wisdom in the Bhagavad Gita - would never think that another persons choice is wrong. This path is an all or nothing - you follow all the tea...

Re: Mistakes against the Shankaracharya Tradition

Dear MOTS, wait for MISTAKES numbers 5 and 6 for the answer to your first. Honesty in this context is that you truly believe what you say. Dishonesty would be that you really know that you are lying.

Re: Mistakes against the Shankaracharya Tradition

Dear Bonsai, My wife and I left SES after our second child was born. The reason was that SES was beginning to tell us what we should do with regard to our private family affairs and with regard to the children. We had a third child while we were at The Study Society (SSNP). We continued there for ab...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

Tootsie - In India generally no-one, who is part of a traditional spiritual path, would ever say that someone else's way is wrong. It is the results of any path that count - and who knows what works for who?. However, it is considered quite widely in India that Krishna Murti was a Self Realised soul...
