Church of Christs and Mermaids

Section › 14 Set Search Previous Next

Cults, Deprogramming and SRF "Not everything is a mermaid that dives into the water." (Russian proverb) - What about mermaids in heaven? Heaven "is peopled with . . . myriads of fairies, mermaids, fishes . . . goblins, gnomes, demigods and spirits." - Swami Sri Yukteswar after his death, says Yogananda [Autobiography of a Yogi, 1998, Chap. 43, p. 355] [The whole quotation]

"Too many cooks make the porridge too salty." (Turkish proverb). What about many Christs? Yogananda refers to least ten Christs and one more - eleven added to Jesus. What does Yogananda means by 'Christ'? A state of deep mind and/or someone having it. How well does a Yogananda-enumerated state-of-consciousness-Christ take on the same meaning as the Christianity-grown 'Christ' from the early church?

"Trust is good, but distrust [could be] better." (Turkish proverb) "A cult tends to make its inquiring foot-folks cramped" could be one cult given. Making several members cramped is seldom all cults do, though. – Now, why did SRF's long-time editor-in-chief once say, "We are a sect"? And why was the SRF church that Yogananda set up, listed among groups referred to as cults and sects in a Belgian document?
