Well, while it may be upsetting, is it really surprising? :(

What I mean is: what has actually changed, or perhaps: what have we achieved?

For one thing, the YIDL brand has lost its former pristine aura. He is now yet another Eastern missionary surrounded by a controversy. He can no longer freely use politicians, and other public figures to boost his stature (well, except in India). Since he is still paranoid about investigative journalists pouncing upon him wherever he may lecture, he maintains low profile during his travels: no posters or other public announcements. We only learn about his travels after he's arrived somewhere. This lack of advertising must damage the bottom line. Additionally, new people interested in yoga classes who search for more info will find "online reviews" that may cause them to choose a less tarnished center instead.

But let's get real. Unfortunately, this overexposed situation will not last forever. The media is probably no longer interested. First, the whole affair is rather mild when measured by today's high standards for religious sex scandals, as set by the Catholic church. Second, honestly, he is no celebrity, he is virtually unknown, so the there is not much "news" in it anyway. Mahe-what?

Importantly, he has managed to convince all his faithful not to engage with us here, which was a very good move. We can no longer simply let their fanaticism and idiocy speak for itself. As the opponent is silent and secretive, there is very little that can be done. Frankly, we will lose interest.

The organization will continue to thrive, same as other, often far more destructive and idiotic religions. However, I would expect the next generation of people in YIDL to be way dumber and more dogmatic compared to the community we remember.

So why is he in Europe? But of course, money.

Next weekend, September 14 - 16, he is going to be in Barcelona. Interestingly enough, it hasn't been advertised anywhere on their websites. The Spanish website has intensive seminar with s. Y...a for that weekend. The yidl main site doesn't mention anything either. Tony is right. Who cares. Skeleton is out of the closet. Unfortunately some people love skeletons. So let's them have it. Of course, that doesn't mean that many people don't have unanswered questions in their minds. They are just trying not to listen to them. Good luck with that. It is not conducive to one's health, that's for sure. I thought that yoga was about staying healthy, not about turning into zombies. I guess they feel like following love and light anywhere it leads them and therefore they should be free to do so. In a same way as we are free to express our opinions about that. What a beautiful world :thumbsup:

most traffic on this site ever - wherever he was the people were researching him and 70 or so of them were able to make an informed choice.

Ahem... in the name of truth, as much as these numbers look impressive, they are misleading.

Most of the traffic on this site nowadays comes from robots, computers pretending that they are real users. They set their profiles offering Rolex knockoffs, penis enlargement, investment opportunities, and other forms of easily monetizable entertainment. Just look at the list of members, the most recently registered ones to see what I mean. Almost all are robots. Most of them from Russia and China. This, by the way, is the case with 99% of all Internet forums out there. Once they are discovered, they get inundated with spam.

For example, robot called Sachtleben:

bet365&half truths No-First Time Deposit Bonuses: Quite a few casinos
give you free capital and you also don&rsquot must make a first
deposit to sign up for them . Having said that, these signup bonuses
are of little bit and still have some difficult terminology linked to
them. However this is to actually&rsquove a serious amounts of
discover more.



The forum software periodically cleanses itself from this garbage so all these fake accounts will be eventually deleted, so there is no harm, other than artificial inflation of our number of visitors.

It would be a wonderful propaganda, but I really don't want us to be to delusional about the real impact of this forum.

again vep???? :bang:
There always will be some of the Vep's, Strilky's, India's ... the show must go on.
There always will be people willing to surrender common sense, money and the best years of one's life to the obese orange dressed man, for whatever the real resons are why they choose to trust him. Yes, it hurts when someone of our dearest has chosen to go or stay with him, but ... this is their decision. Frankly, I believe that there has been way too many information in previous months and everybody had an opportunity to take a look from a different angle. Unfortunatelly, some of the people want to live with eyes wide shut, and there is nothing we can do about it. It is their decision, their life. On these pages anyone willing to get out of the didl cult will have a place to share her/his thoughts and get a help from the people which had passed through the same experience, but decision to stay or go is on their side.

Just for info
Swami will be at Strilky in December 21st-23rd.

I have the oportunity to read some e-mail from Prague YIDL people. They still believe that there was waged a compaign agaist THEM. I don´t mind anymore, it´s their free will ,but it is really interesting for me to see how the mind of people (who I know very well) can also work. And those who dare to say words compaign against them are the most open among them... others even don´t dare to speak about whole think at all.

There are also people, with which I am in contact, who are afraid to lose their friends in YIDL, so they pretend they didn ´t leave the organization, even though they don´t want to have anything with it.
I wander, what it´s like for those who stay, that they don´t know, if person with whom they are in contact is still in or out of YIDL? If they can trust each other or not?

Sorry, I was just thinking out loud.
