Back in the late 90’s and early 2000’s, I hosted three-daySudarshan Kriya 
seminars at my home. Various teachers stayed at my house overthe years.  
Sometimes, one would call andset up a place/time to give an intro lecture while 
staying the weekend. Thewife of one of these teachers came a few times and did 
a such a lecture –probably to maintain an active status in the SSRS org. I went 
with herand listened to the lecture at the church center where it was held. The 
lecturewas competent although not too passionate or inspiring. These were all 
old TMteachers so they had done this kind of routine many times.
The next day we were having lunch at a restaurant and engaging in a 
typicalcasual conversation prior to the second lecture. When she mentioned that 
shewas Jewish, I must have looked surprised. She was blonde and blue-eyed and 
lookvery Anglo-German. I said something naughty, to see her response … 
“That’ssurprising … you don’t look like you have the map of Israel stamped upon 
yourface”.  (It was a comment that I heardvoiced by an Orthodox monk 
previously.)  She look slightly irritated but caught herself and 
statedemphatically that she (and her mother) kept a careful Seder at the home 
shewhere she grew up and so did she.  Ithought it was interesting to witness 
the moment of “affront” since itpealed-off the social face she displayed. I 
never thought much about it, sincewhere I lived, I wouldn’t know if someone was 
Jewish - even if I bumped intothem on a street corner. The weekend ended, she 
went back home and that endedthe excursion.  Later when the Kriya 
teacher/business partner of her husband returned, he happened to mention that 
she wascomposing a “Chicken Soup for the Soul” book. He also mentioned that she 
wasplanning more of them and that her husband (another Kriya teacher) was 
hopingshe started making a bunch of money from it, so he could quit involvement 
inhis businesses. All of it was just talk to me at the time. However, later 
thetruth came out – bizzaro mundo.  About a year later I saw them - both the 
woman and herhusband at a SSRS retreat. I don’t remember much about the 
beginning but laterI started seeing her in the meal line waiting to get to the 
food. There wasn’tmuch conversation in the line and that suited me just fine. 
However, I learnedthat my simple presence was now deemed problematic, when her 
husband came overafter a meal and asked me to stay back and stay away from her 
because shethought I was stalking her. I don’t think my jaw dropped but I was 
“floored” –I couldn’t comprehend how she would think this, since they all had 
stayed at myhome and shared driving/meals/whatever.  I didn’t want to cause a 
stir, so I just consciously decidedto avoid any possible proximity during 
meals/meal lines/meditations. The womanand her husband never came to my home 
again and I was quite thankful. I couldonly imagine what I might be accused of 
saying/doing/attempting when in thesame house – my house. It was a revealing 
form of psychopathology that caused me to wonder about the psychologicalfitness 
of some of these teachers. Later, at a meeting with SSRS during another course, 
I wasup close talking with him. He asked me to sit down close and then he read 
anote and called her up – sitting right beside me. I was uncomfortable about 
itbut I wasn’t able to leave yet. Worse, I had to listen to her 
whisperedconversation with SSRS about some personal issue that I never would 
want toknow about. I guess it was psycho-karma unfolding but I felt grateful 
that I wasn’tbeing accused again of stalking.  Learning that she had compiled 
all these books, I sometimeswondered how she could compile/write a book 
instructing other people about howto live a life of unconditional love and 
happiness. I finally concluded thatpeople try and attempt to talk 
authoritatively about what they would like topossess. That is … what they want 
but at the same time do not have and do not experience. Since most of her 
talking points came from SSRS, I guessthis fits the bill.
