Having written Debriefing Gurdjieffianity it might make sense to rewrite the Gurdjieff corpus for a real New Age: it is almost sad to see the way Gurdjieff destroyed his movement and ended up blaming Ouspensky.
It might be worth trying to create a version of the corpus that is free from all the liabilities Gurdjieff brought from reactionary sufism and anti-modernism. Gurdjieff knew better, but was somehow helpless.
If only the pitch of the genre had been to a solid modernity, without the crypto-fascist entanglement Gurdjieff was forced to endure and which will destroy not only his movement but that of buddhism and Oshoism.
Gurdjieff’s teaching could have thrived had it embraced the modern enlightenment, modern history, and the legacy of freedom. Over and over Gurjdieff sounded the theme of Reason and then somehow bungled the job. Gurdjieff’s method is a good commentary on the evolution of freedom and man’s potential as a being with will. It could have brought sufism into the future, but instead got Ouspensky’s idiotic take on caste and the code of Manu. Gurdjieff secreted criticized Ouspensky’s position and the stupidity of the legacy of caste. Instead Gurdjieff was stuck in the guru mode of antiquity and succumbed to its illusions. The fascist generation in which he lived and which he rejected (I think) but remained silent about has made his legacy unusuable.
The movement could embrace democracy, the liberal/left/communist future, make the ‘work’ about the working class, and espouse the freedom of man in a Kantian context. I think that the Gurdjieff movement otherwise is finished. It will go the way of xtianity, into oblivion.
I think the hidden ops have to keep the dalai lama himself in the exoteric realm, but he is probably an amateur diddlemaniac…
Trump and tantric fascism…
I think ordinary buddhists should move out from buddhism asap. If you find out what’s going on and don’t do you heil hitlers you will be destroyed…
that is something…followers of G be forewarned: G observed modern fascism but did not support it…(as far as I can tell given what is claimed)…
So why don’t they destroy the G entity? Why destroy ordinary dissenter new agers?
There is no authority of the buddhas (or sufi gangsters)…fake enlightenment and ‘will/feeding’ is big astral business..the brand of endlightenment was always a fake.. a few cute Zen moments, all mechanized, the rest is dead zombie world conquet bullshit…
maybe not the Osho entity and what’s left of the gautama entity can kill each other off.
Three toots to the Dalai Lama. What out for diddlemaniac fascist murderers in tibetan guise…
Say again were Gautama or Osho enlightenment or ‘fausti’ in a djinn racket?
The blog records a sudden interest in Danielou and his interesting books on Indian religion unfortunately mixed up with some serious errors, his anti-modernism and much else
I will critique the usual junk about ‘cycles’ in this book which I had not read…

We have discussed this before here: the real Tibet/Nazi connection is not connected with these outer figures who seem to sense a rumor without understanding the hidden fascist plot that began in the nineteenth century.
And this must have included sectors beyond buddhism.
We never see anything about the real perps here…they are part of a Tibetan ‘deep state’ which we can’t fathom….
Seagal, who has family in Russia, said the dual citizenship will simply allow him to more easily travel between the two countries, but still loves the USA.

how on earth did a complete asshole like Seagal get to be a tulku? this game is bogus and targets Hollywood celebrities (often jews) to create trusties in the Tibetan farce/wasteland.
None of these tibetans know anything about reincarnation….It is a pile of garbage…
Stay away from this game: it is rigged, fascist and will kill dissenters…
Seagal has to be the most grotesque idiot in the whole idiocy of Tibetan buddhism….

The last year has brought home very clearly the dangers of the sangha/commune frameworks. I am sure the same criticism might apply to hindu ashrams but the latter is a different situation despite the morass of the whole of hinduism: a yogi can move alone outside of society without the compelling straightjacket of what buddhism, and now oshoism, try to do. Which is what? It looks like a path to enlightenment, but the reality is at most a token of that. You become a member of something, yield you autonomy, agree without agreeing to a fate decided by someone else. It is a very dangerous situation made worse when the ‘master’ dies…
In buddhism the path of the boddhisattwas is clearly a warning sign: the whole game makes no sense but is a convenient way to keep seekers trapped. In the osho realm the evidence is there that ‘osho’ wasn’t who he presented himself as. I think the game is run by someone else now and the dangers of being a passive entity in that dark zone is great. Slip away at once. And if you aren’t the fascist type, begone fast. In a way osho created an escape avenue: the mala is oriented toward a living person. With a dead person that mala should be surrendered and discarded save as a momento. It is also clear in retrospect how artificial all that was: the whole game was nothing but a personality cult as a diffuse bhakti yoga. There was no real teaching beyond that: all those books are completely frustrating because they have no real message about the subjects treated instead redirecting attention to the cult personality. Look at the meditations: they are loose pieces of not much. Real zazen, say, is never really brought in, i.e. there is no real mediation. Dynamic and the other ‘meditations’ are just kiddie rides, to keep people interested and occupied. Not that that strategy was all wrong, as long as the whole game is trustworthy, but it is not.
The whole game is in trouble now. Trying to promote fascist politicians won’t be forgiven. It was a stupid stupid thing brewing over the past decades in the shadows of the new age movement. The whole movement is going to become rancid: a complete restart is necessary…
It was always a deception to become a sannyasin in this form: who knew this implied loss of autonomy, submission to an absolute dictatorship, destruction of personal freedom, etc…The game gets rougher when played with dead ‘ghosts’, be warned…
In Tibetan buddhism we see the empty shell of buddhism in its terminal fallacy of the boddhisattwa, that fiction of false compassion. Maybe I have misunderstood it, but I haven’t misunderstood how it became corruptible and corrupted: not what it seems…
This is not the Kali yuga. It is actually a new era that will have to regenerate the real ‘santana dharma’ in a new way for a new future. The whole baggage of the decayed game is in the way.
I recommend slipping away, or, if the ‘it’ is aware of who you are and tries to return you to the sheep’s quarters, fight you way out.
Again, I am no fan of hinduism, but the path of the yogi shows out in the open what the real path is: renounce the world, move out into the forest and don’t come back. It is not about being a groupie in a cult.
The harm done by Tibetan Buddhists is going to go without proper detection or any consequences. Chogyma super Asshole Trungpa must be laughing from the bardo. These fascist failed to realize they were being watched from afar by spiritual agencies they did not know existed. Somehow an expose has arrived (in our critical comments on Osho, at least he sounded a warning with the first expose years ago, but he failed to distance himself from fascism and seems to have joined the club).
The status of the Dalai Lama is preposterous. He has no authority of any kind. He seems to be a dupe himself, and doesn’t understand that fascism in buddhists wasn’t designed to do anything useful It was destructive first and last.
We see the same tendencies in Trump in disguise. He seems programmed to do everything dreadful….
The buddhist path is long dead: its current faddish popularity requires now a successor movement as an exit strategy…
However, the cover has already been blown. The ‘buddhists’ want to create a reactionary anti-post-modern buddhist dictatorship (with rivals in the feckless Osho). What a piece of shit. The Dalai Lama senses what is afoot, but it wasn’t to make Trump an example of the future…he is to destroy the intergrity of a classic democracy and corrupt the whole game…
Honest and liberal buddhists should evacuate the sangha at once and fight against further invultuation. A new version of the eight fold way can be pressed out as coin in a day or less, without the Dictator in Chief, Gautama (in any case a disappeared former ghost, I suspect…)
The sangha is fake religious body with no connection with the original founder
We have suggested dismantling buddhism. Oshoism has gotten started yet…get the point
At present, proponents of school choice have the upper hand because they are backed by some of the nation’s richest people, whose campaign donations give them an outsize voice in shaping public policy. The issue that the American public must resolve in local and state as well as national elections is whether voters will preserve and protect the public school system, or allow it to be raided and controlled by the one percent and financial elites.
