That said.

Re: Falling sick from a practise?

Looking at the site link for Kailash Hause, in the about section, and under all the individual western people running the center or leading workshops, there is no reference to lineage. No reference to a Guru who gave the transmissions and guided any of these people. And the main founder Wilfried Pfe...

Re: claim about Fifth Dalai Lama

Yeah the correction doesn’t indicate what Malcom’s point
was: that in the context of a communication with a dharmapala
the specifics were more rhetorical than literal.

Re: "Wild Wild Country" - Osho documentary on Netflix

For the sake of honesty, I should add that it took me nearly as long to recover from some of the inner dynamics of CTR's set up. The nature of the teachings received was not the same however. Yeah, well... At least CTR didn't try to poison a whole county... As a point of information, I believe Shee...
