Re: Nothing Wrong with SES

So StillatSES from what you say in the above post is: “quod demonstradum erat” i.e. Q.E.D. Therefore, you are right and all of us on this forum are wrong. Saying so, does not make it so! Well you haven’t proven anything yet. This is typical SES arrogance. Contributors on this forum are not speaking ...

Re: Mistakes against the Shankaracharya Tradition

Dr.Alan It appears that I have touched a raw nerve for you to take me to task on my one short post. You write: “So that you may know a little more accurately matters which you have guesses at, here is some help for you. I am unable to find any material in what I have so far posted, which claims or s...

Re: Mistakes against the Shankaracharya Tradition

Ella M.C. You wrote: “I do believe that the Advaita Vedanta system and the Shankaracharya know this and of course.. not theoretically! So to me it is only natural to be drawn to such a true source of knowledge.” How do you know and verify this? Gerasene Demon has raised some very valid points regard...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

Welcome to the forum Dr.Alan.. Also good to have someone from the early years like myself on the forum. You would have been in the SES when the Mavros were there and myself also. I was grateful to have the support of Dr Francis Roles at the Study Society in the 1980's before he passed away. You have...

Re: Newspaper Articles

Gabrielle, Let me state from the outset that Tim Stott did not present his “views” in these articles. Like all good journalists at the time like Peter Hounam and Andrew Hogg of the Evening Standard and their “Secret Cult” they just presented the facts as given to them, not like journalists who today...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

Unique. You have described everything to a “t”. There is nothing in your post that could be said to be inaccurate or exaggerated. Their behaviour in the SFSK is identical to when they ran the Sydney SOP except they do not have to answer to anyone else. Michael and Nina Mavro are cunning, shrewd and ...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

Absolutely, Earlgrey. The material was manipulated and even Mr Jaiswal’s translations have been questioned. India does not exist in a vacuum. Jyotir Math did get to hear about the public expose about the SES and Mavro’s running of the SOP. It all began to leak out in the early 1980’s. HH Shantanand ...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

Tootsie, that is a big ask. You are asking me to go back to my first visit to India in 1964. In order to understand what this is all about the readers of this forum will have to put to one side their preconceived western rose tinted glasses, in particular, the anglo-american view of the world and ot...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

My final comment on this thread is simply to say that in the end, each and every one of you will have to deal with, and come to terms with your experiences with Michael and Nina Mavro and the SFSK in your own way like each and every one of us has had to do ourselves. Plato is attributed to have said...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

Thank you Ella.M.C. for your comments and they are respected. In fact all comments on this forum should be respected as they are the individuals’ experiences within these organizations. Sometimes they do get personal and volatile and I have been a receiver and even a giver in this aspect. I have bee...

Re: Sydney School for Self Knowledge

What saddens me most about this thread on the SFSK is how Michael and Nina Mavro were able to do exactly what they did in the Sydney SOP for another 25 years. Only this time completely unfettered by the constraints of the SES leadership under Leon McLaren in spite of the SES in London saying that al...

Re: St. James on globalhinduism.com

The above article reads like it was written by the SES as a publicity article to promote St James Independent School to attract pupils. While there is nothing wrong with Sanskrit as a language and that Hindi is derived from it (like English from Latin) and it uses the Devanagari script, I have been ...

Re: 'Secret' mantras

Woodgreen, Ram is simply a Hindi/Sanskrit word for what we say in English : 'god'. deity. So instead of a fancy hindu word for god, we could have saved ourselves a couple of weeks wages by just meditating on the word "god". Perhaps it doesn't sound exotic and eastern enough, perhaps the La...
