Were those lines or entire Murlis edited out?

It's called 'the Avyakt revision course Murli' BKTi-Pit. Additions, omissions, revisions and changes.

"Our organisation is constantly re-writing the knowledge and predictions in response to their failures and gradually removing the anomalies ".

I don't buy the polished PR spiel anymore.

I don't either. I've never been comfortable with the image building propaganda stuff.

I remember once when we were given news of some big service thing from London or something, I felt so uninterested, distant and even having a sulking like attitude. Difficult to describe. The thing was probably coming from a place of good intentions but it felt like there was such an inter galactic gap between the deciding elite and those who are expected to finance and execute the projects. I could not explain why I felt like that and I went into meditation asking myself and Baba, "What's wrong with me? I should be happy hearing of service news ..." The answer I got was, "Don't worry child, you're alright. Baba will take care of that." He did not say when and I am still waiting patiently ...

The control dynamics and hierarchical power structure have always been there but when I came things were pretty simple and straightforward. Now we have all the glossy paper and professionally designed CDs and literature, a very nice packaging, but there is no power in it. I went to check out the international BK website and our local website. Very pretty design, nice visuals, etc, but nothing inspiring. The knowledge content has been so diluted that it will really take a direct intervention from God to trigger a life changing experience from that!

I am still inspired to teach the 7 Days Course but I do not participate in any type of promotion of the BKs. It makes me sick. Service should be about helping souls, not about promoting oneself. Now that I live in a big center, I am exposed to so much of this stuff. God is very detached but for me it is not always easy to live in such a world of deceptions. I am seriously considering jumping off and moving forward with my Brahmin life in a small simple place where we can focus on Truth.

Om Shanti!

Thanks BKTi-Pit for sharing. That small simple place idea will very much appeal to some of the forum posters.

Don't know if this is the right threat but i have a question about the 7 Day Course. As you know i did The Course and the Advanced Course.

I never went to morning class and never back to the centre after that. Only to see a movie. Now I am invited to come to a class by, let's say, my teacher's teacher. Is that a normal policy?

Is it a one on one class? They never did that in my time. They might be wanting to check you out and present a good face. Especially if he has identified you with this site.

Normally you would be told but then invited to evening or weekend classes and meditation until you showed interest. Many folks that do introductory courses are regularly sent email invites to general events. The senior sisters or center-in-charge are rolled out to give "powerful" dhristi to affect you.

All "students" of the course are invited, so i was told. Maybe four will show up. I am thinking of giving my own lecture about what i know about the organization and see it as a opportunity.

Asked my friend if it was wise for me to go, knowing that he knows how i feel about it. He said it is up to you, i did my job (now its up to Baba?).

Is a teacher who is teaching at a sub-centre, qualified to receive the Murli batch by his/her email or only get it from the center in charts?

What is the policy?

Murlis and classes via e-mail

Post by alladin » 24 Oct 2007

As far as I know, and unless the system has been changed, teachers in subcenters and even pukka BKs non teachers who live far from any main center can download Murlis but there's a procedure and password to enable them to do that. So they have to be entitled.

The sending around of Murlis, even season's Avyakt Murli, is strictly forbidden by ordinary e-mail means, whereas faxes are allowed.

Om Shanti,

after the seven days course, students should be warned. During the 7 day course, these warnings are irrelevent.
