Oh Gawd - this is getting to be too much for us to deal with - this is the exact opposite of what you just posted on your web site!

/"So what you do is, if you are not capable of going into samadhi yourself, you try and find a teacher who is, and you sit with them on a weekly or monthly or daily basis, depending on your proximity to the teacher. And just to be around them, if the teacher is truly enlightened, that energy and light is always coming forth from them."/ - Rama

Even crazier, the groups feel the need to constantly put down other groups, because they believe that if they can make these other groups appear "shorter," they'll appear "taller."

How could a single person get so confused? Go figure.
