blackball.GIFMaitreya - Spiritual Information Centre
Followers claim the now-you-see'im-now-you-don't "Maitreya" is the Second Coming of Christ, the prophesied "Future Buddha," incarnation of Krishna, and return of Mohammed. (He doesn't claim to be the Hopi's "White Buffalo," strangely enough.) Nuff said?

blackball.GIFMadhudvisah dasa Swami

blackball.GIF Leaving Siddha Yoga
It is our belief that by talking about and sharing our truth we can help ourselves deal with the process of healing. Along the way, perhaps we can help someone else out as well.

blackball.GIF Ravi Shankar: The Art of Living
This spin-off of TM -- Shankar was once one of the Maharishi's troupe -- has been growing by leaps and bounds, particularly in Eastern Europe. It teaches a form of hyperventilation, sudarshan kriya, that can bring euphoria, energy rushes in the body, and so forth. It can also lead to alkalosis of the blood and possible damage to the central nervous system. (Fainting, crabbing or clawing of hands, or tremors in arms and legs are all symptoms reported.) We have received other, unverified reports of sexual harassment, death threats, and questionable financial dealings. As with all such groups, approach with caution -- and judge for yourself.
