Defection from SRCM(California-1997) to Kasturi

Taken from Shashwat's blog: The Cult of Sahaj Marg (Shree Ram Chandra Mission) in a Feb. 15, 2009 "how-to" article called "Leaving Sahaj Marg"

It is a letter from an abhyasis in Singapore called Debashis, originally posted in the "comments" section of Kasturi Bhenji's blog (Feb 11, 2009):

Dear Brother,

I am an abhyasi currently located in Singapore. I have been practising Sahaj Marg since 1993. We used to have a very knowledgable preceptor named Brother Bala who was appointed a preceptor by Babuji in 1977 and I used to practice under his guidance. Unfortunately, brother Bala passed away in 2007 and since then we have been quite disillusioned by the new management. I feel that we are moving far away from spirituality and becoming a commercial organization.

I protested against the state of affairs and was ostracised and harassed in several ways. Since then I have stopped going to the Satsanghs.

There are several interested seekers here who are looking for guidance…. We donot have any good preceptors after Brother Bala to guide us. There are some abhyasis who have practised for over 10 years and decided to discontinue the practice because of the new management. Could you please discuss this situation with Sister Kasturi and let us know how to pursue our spiritual journey? Since we are physically far away, is it possible to give us a distance sitting or appoint a preceptor in Singapore who can guide us?
