Donald Lambie, Shane Mulhall and Barry Steingard were due to meet with him last year but it had to be aborted due to the trouble in Mumbai and is being reorganised I understand.
Sounds like you've been fed more SES spin and lies I'm afraid.
The reason the trip was aborted had nothing whatsoever to do with the trouble in Mumbai, which is nowhere near Shri Vasudevananda's location. In fact this "holy man" hadn't actually agreed to see them but they decided to travel to India anyway, then when they got there he refused to give them an audience, saying that they weren't yet at an elevated enough level of consciousness to be worthy of his time and that they should go away and improve themselves.
Then when they returned to England the SES put out the story that Troubleshooter was fed above and that in fact this guru was not authentic and had a criminal record. Later on Roger Pincham's two daughters visited another "holy man" at a different Indian ashram, and he is now arranging for this latest guru to meet with Lambie et al.

There are reports that he may be involved with right wing politics in India though which is what I want to find out about. The information that I was given about the trip of the three of them was given verbally by Donald Lambie at a meeting of 200 or so SES senior members in January 2009, so if it is not true then he is taking some risks! Please if you have any proof of this lets have it. When did Pinchams daughters go and who is this other new Holy man? If you can shed any more light on this it would help a lot. Thanks.
My sources regarding the aborted trip to India are from two senior SES members.
Shri Vasudevananda sent a letter saying the timing was not appropriate for their visit. They nevertheless decided to go. When they arrived they were refused an audience on the basis that their consciousness was not sufficiently developed. The line about the criminal record was given out as a reason for them deciding not to see him.
Regarding Pincham's daughters and the latest Holy man, I will post more when I can gather further details.
