I can't say, never met him, except once in a dream and that doesn't 
count. My point above was the *assumption* that many (all?) of his 
followers make. Just because he said he was enlightened, why did 
they believe it? 

And also regarding getting escorted out, were those that this 
happened to respectful? Just curious, because we'd be treated 
similarly in any company meeting if openly challenging a CEO 
disrespecfully- not making any assumptions here, just gethering 
info. Thanks
