Gurdjieff Cultural Clubs & Hypocrisy

Introduction  to Gurdjieff:

Gurdjieff newer disowned the religion. He always proclaimed that he was Christian, though he never visited any church nor followed any religious ritual or pursuit. Why? Because he knew that religion has trappings of politics and unless he did not anchor on to something, people will make his strange talk into new religion.

Teaching:

Gurdjieff asserted that people cannot perceive reality in their current state because they do not possess consciousness but rather live in a state of a hypnotic “waking sleep”. All his life he was trying to ‘wake-up’ people.

Radha Swami Satsang Beas Expose: Business Dealings

A shameful tale of exploitation.

If Guru needs to accumulate wealth, to secure him or his family in this world, how he can guarantee security to other people in the next world? Faith in money and faith in God do not go together. While they inspire others to part their money for sewa (service for the cause) their personal conduct is different.  A usual religious hypocrisy.

Radhasoami teachings:

One who is intoxicated with his worldly status, his family, his wealth or its instruments, in the same way as one gets intoxicated with alcohol or narotics , cannot do bhajan. And when he says that he has no spare time for bhajan, this is all a fraud of the mind.

More on parting money service (sewa):

Service to the Master is measured on the scale of love,
not in wordly terms.

Once a satsangi lady told Maharaj Ji that as she had no income of her own, she always asked her husband to give her some money for offering in seva. “Will this sewa be of any benefit to me? Does it have any value?”

Maharaj Ji replied, “Yes if both of you are happy in giving this seva”. Maharaj Ji further explained this by giving an example of a satsangi with one leg who used to come during the bhandaras. “He used to come from the hills of Himachal, and was very poor. Just to save money to give in seva, he used to walk from his village in the hills to Dera, with the help of his crutches, covering a distance of over 75 miles.

“Once he was brought to me during ‘money seva’ by Mr Bolokani. He offered one rupee in seva.
“How can you value this seva? Is it not worth much more than the hundreds and thousands that the rich give?
“The value of seva is not in how much one offers, but in the feelings and love with which it is offered.”

The above passages taken from the web site claiming Radha Soami Satsang info, are linked to their respective page. Now if Guru himself is clinging to money or he can not decide where to stop accumulating, can he ask others to part with their money? Did Guru Nanak built an empire of Religion? Did Dadu Sahib, Paltu Sahib, Kabir Sahib or all those people who are relied in Satsangs, accumulate wealth? They were Masters. These are dream merchants.  Read more on personal conduct:

Sebi nod to Gurinder Singh Dhillon for consolidating Rs.1163/-  Crores

Money is garbage. We just acquire it personally.

Now forget about above. Where are the accounts of Sewa? Who maintains it and who audits it? Where are these  displayed? No link to it available on Internet. It is public money but appropriated by a private society which is not a public trust! Why public has no right to know?

I have no answer. If somebody has any answer, please let me know.
