A Tribute To A Deceased (suicide) Abhyasi of Sahaj Marg(tm)

Taken and translated from an article, "Hommage" - (A Tribute)", by Cricri, an ex-abhyasis of 18 years with Chari, and a research psychologist and psycho-linguist in Europe. Cricri has a French blog (testimonial): Analyse de la SRCMtm. This article was posted on Elodie's blog in Europe: Pour Que Vive Le Sahaj Marg

Cricri, a former abhyasi and "critic", who participated in our discussions and analysis of the SRCM in 2006, has just sent me this sad news (his blog:

A Tribute (To Eugenyi) !

My friend was called Eugenyi

After the "fall" of the Soviet Empire (metamorphosis and expansion westward?) SRCMtm the greedy, ambitious predator, was prospecting for new prey in the vast eastern territories.

Some Minsk (USSR) recruits were invited to the Augerans (France) ashram in early 1990, going there by bus on a never-ending journey. There they were greeted very brotherly. I was tying up a strong friendship with two Belarusians of my age, and we kept in close touch for some years.

One of them was called Eugenyi . He was full of life and spontaneity, with a remarkable freshness of sentiments, that we, arrogant, cynical and saturated
young people from the west, had never really had because of the destruction of our souls by the hydra of imperialism with its thousand faces.

Our lives followed their (individual) paths. I saw Eugenyi a few years later, at a SRCM(tm) seminar.

He had changed dramatically. Fully indoctrinated, distant, fanatic, if not obsessed. I tried not to have any judgement on his frightful condition so as to respect his process and his path. It was not the same person and our friendship had disappeared. He condemned my already critical attitude vis-à-vis the general subversion in which the SRCMtm got stuck under the evil guidance of the agent, Chari. He was flanked by another older character, possibly a preceptor. He seemed involved in an advanced program of brainwashing as a preceptorship preparation or some other executive position in the pyramid of power.

The other
Belarusian friend had disappeared in the traffic. I had nothing to do with Eugenyi, an abyss seperated us.

The years passed; 20 years.

Through the systems of social networks on the internet I have just been contacted by a mutual friend who found my trail. The joy of reunion has quickly given way to a deep sadness and shock, learning of Eugenyi's suicide a few years ago.

Eugenyi, under the indoctrination pressure of spiritual progress constantly advocated by Chari, had engaged in an excessive practice of meditation that led him to the frontiers of mental health.

Our friend wrote me:

"Eugenyi overdid with daily meditations and came to the state with hallucinations etc - to the state that modern psychiatry treats as it is own ground - when his inbalances became evident he was also became rejected by the local SM community in Minsk (they did want to see him at the meditations as a grave reminder of "screwed by practice" examples). This is a very sad story.
Eugeniy very often referred to some old letters and talks with you. I really wanted that time to talk to you. There are in fact not many people that time left who knew SM and Eugeniy. Well this happened about 4 or 5 years ago."

In another email, he said:

"What really put him to desperation is that he was rejected by all fellow abhiasies who were instructed if I remember correctly not to have contacts with E and to forbid him to visit the meditations and cleanings."

This message is a tribute to the memory of Eugenyi. They looted his soul, then they destroyed it (him?), pushing him to despair by turning their backs when he most needed humanity.

The Responsibles? The criminal indoctrinating psychological pressure that is the "teaching" of Chari. The complete subversion of the spiritual teachings of Babuji. The "master" Chari who pollutes the souls with his own folly. The other "brothers" and "sisters", blind, submissive, selfish and inhumane.

Hi all friends of Eugenyi ...

Having expressed my sympathy to Cricri for his pain, and my empathy with his suffering, on Elodie's blog (in Christian's mother tongue, French), I now extend my deepest feelings to his true friends and family (outside this cult of a person).

I feel compelled to make a few insertions and comments to what seems to me to not be an isolated incident in Sahaj Marg(tm). (By that, I mean: the emotionalism, drama, dis-ease (suicide), and flaws displayed by un-kindness, selfishness, narcissism, divisiveness, immorality, materialism, imperialism, nationalism, spiritualism, of the group)

As far as the "suicide" (4-5 years ago) of Eugenyi is concerned, one can presume that Eugenyi, or anyone who contemplates taking one's life for that matter, was not in a "good frame of mind". We can equate it to fanaticism or as "extreme". And we can safely assume suicide is not the solution touted, promoted or ordered by what some spiritualists call: GOD.

We can safely assert that he was not in "bliss" or "relaxation", but Eugenyi was probably in a state of suffering and dis-comfort or dis-ease, dis-content, dis-connected, etc... ...(dis=NOT) The suicide of abhyasis must not be touted as the symbol of "SUCCESS" of the Method or the MISSION which is Sahaj Marg(tm) as some other extremists (jihadists) seem to do. There is no "reward on the other side" for suicide.

Actions and/or their re-actions are their own reward. There are laws of Nature which "prayers" or "pleas" will not change.

Suicide is not the "path to God" but the failure of the METHOD taken. Suicide may even be caused by the Method or by the delivery of the Method.

Some religious "adepts", and their suicide bomber (units) are somehow convinced that there are some "rewards" for killing for "God". But that is a "dis-ease" which is (brainwashed) hiding inside RELGION. Right?

It, depression and other co-dependent ill-nesses seem to also dwell un-realized inside what is called: SPIRITUALISM claiming to be spirituality!! ... and even "Raja Yoga".

4d-Don said...

And they, these "experts" don't seem to know what to do with it except to "shun" the infected person, or keep him/her "outside" ... as true "brothers and sisters"! NOT!!

Talk of suicide is rampant in Sahaj Marg litterature. Babuji is even said to have suffered from a long depression and even contemplated suicide because of a work-related incident. (see on ISRC site of KC Narayana, son of Dr. Varadachari, Professor of Philosophy and friend of Babuji and said to have been Babuji's chosen successor had he not died before him. And one of Babuji's sons also committed suicide.

These suicides and the alleged poisoning deaths of both Babuji and of his son and successor, Umesh (who apparently carried a revolver on his person before he died), and the court cases which ensued, and the mob (alleged violent) take-over of ashrams by followers of Chari, take the rumoured "relaxation" or the "Let it Be" aspect out of the Method of Sahaj Marg(tm). This is not "one big happy family".

If this is "bliss" or "contentment", or what "spirituality" brings into one's life, then give me "medications", thank you! Or at least an un-flawed theology, a moral and ethical philosophy, or a "human" friend (or a taxi driver, bar-tender, stranger, etc...) ... even a secular, or (god forbid!), a humanist or an atheist one.

If any of my friends or family become "suicidal" I will not send them to divisive Sahaj Marg(tm) ... looking for humanity or a solution to the problem which ails him/her ... or a "brother and a sister".

Rest in Peace Eugenyi...

May the pain and suffering you bore alone, shunned by Sahaj Marg(tm) "brothers and sisters", enlighten others about which path not to take ...

May your true light shine through the darkness that is the navel-gazing bliss of lack of COMPASSION or apathy, the opposite of LOVE.

Maybe they were just too busy "conquering the world", or themselves (ego) to care for any others!

Don ...

Dear Don,

This is truly, truly sad... Where is the humanity and compassion within the SRCM hierarchy and general membership - to allow a fellow human being to become so entangled so as to believe that death is the only path out?

My deepest and heart felt thoughts and prayers go out to Eugenyi's family and friends.

Hi Don,

I am very sorry to learn about Eugenyi. My sympathy goes out to his friends and family.

As I recall, Sahaj-Marg has their own definition of the word compassion, so that it doesn't exist in the group.

I burned my books, so i am unable to look it up for you but the story goes something like this: Chariji was talking to Babuji, in confidence of course, and Babuji gives Chariji the REAL meaning of the word compassion. It actually means, sitting by and watching and doing nothing. It may even require one to turn his/her back. The path is narrow and there is only room for one. Don't look at anyone else, etc.

It's just another way to keep people trapped. It's so sad.

Feeling suicidal is not uncommon - and it is not uncommon for people in this group to hope they die when Chariji dies.

I hope more people in this system wake up.

What happened to Eugenyi could have easily happened to me.

I am so sorry about Eugenyi.

I am indeed shocked to hear about the suicide committed by Eugenyi five years ago. His end is indeed tragic. A person who had come with high hopes to pursue his spiritual quest has been discarded by one and all and made insane by his own Guru.

I am not surprised by Charis work as he may be theoritically well versed and knowledgeable, but practically he is a naive and does not know how to go about. He was always worried that his image should not be tarnished, so whenever such cases had happened he had dismissed them as hallucinations... avoided the aspirants and blamed them instead of rectifying the problems.

I know of a case few years ago , where a lady had gone to Chari and took training under him. In the initial stages of her practice he was highly impressed by her intuition and wisdom...but later as she was undergoing some spiritual experiences and confided in him. He got perturbed and instead of solving the problem he blamed the perceptor along with her and stated she has to visit a psychiatrist. He also commented that she is living in a world of fantasy.

She was heart broken and left the mission. She took a wise decision or else she would also have committed suicide or would have been in a mental assylum. I heard through one of my friends that she is now leading an ascetic life under the guidance of a great Saint from the Himalayas.

Chari should first master his OWN REAL INNER SELF. Then only he has the right to preach and guide others.

Aren't you guys ashamed that you are glorifying someone's death to your political ends. Who are you helping in the process...except perhaps yourself. Instead of caring for someone's soul, I think you should first care for yours. Or you guys can run for the 2012 elections? Pathetic..

Hi anonymous!!

"glorifying death"?? Huh??

I call it "caring"! I am not surprised a "serf" of a nationalist, imperialist, spiritualist ex-CEO in the Cult of PERSON, does not.

We are exposing the extreme and ultimate lack of caring in this "CULT of a PERSON" called Sahaj Marg(tm) (trade marked for trade and commerce). Why the trade mark? No other "holy teachings" are "trade marked"?? CONTROL-addicted?? How UNIQUE? How "SPECIAL"!!

Those inside Sahaj Marg(tm) who should have displayed their "LOVE" showed their REAL SELVES: nationalist, SPIRITUALIST, imperialists, BUSINESSMEN!!

Here is the glorification by your BOSS of the "death" of an innocent "mother" for nationalist or what you call "political" ENDS. (although Chari quotes the noble path of "Sufism", and falsely claims Lalaji as the adi Guru of his usurped Sahaj Marg(tm), he and his followers are not SUFIS, Huh?? Respect or thievery?)

One who will "kill his mother" if ordered by a "ex-CEO", industrialist, businessman who stole the society of some other, and named himself President, is not a FRIEND of anyone, specially one's innocent MOTHER!!

READ and LEARN who you are!!

(From Heart of the Lion, Shri Parthasarathi Rajagopalachari-see references)

"....So I repeat, the Guru is the only friend. In fact, I have said this so often, that in the Sufi philosophy, the Guru is called Friend. "The Friend is coming". Because he is the only fellow who can give his life for you. He is the only fellow, therefore, to whom you must hand over totally, a Power of Attorney....."Do with me as you think I deserve to be done with. Kick me when I have to be kicked. Beat me when I have to be beaten. Curse me when I have to be cursed. But make of me what you think I should be eventually, because only you can do it."

"So once more I say this in all humility....if you must have a Master, find a fellow who is capable of, you know, throwing you around, beating you up, cutting you to pieces. Remember Parushurama's father and the stern test that young boy had to make for obedience...."Kill your Mother". "Yes"..."

"He pulled out the sword and cut off her head. He said, "I am pleased with you my son. Ask for anything you want." He said, "I want my mother alive." And He said, "So be it." and she got up and walked off. The Guru is the Master, when you say of destiny, it means life and death. He must be the Master of your life as he must be the Master of your death."

That is Chari, your BOSS, "glorifying", and promoting murder, for one's selfish, invented, megalomaniacal "fantasies".

That is your "GURU" who claims he will take you to the GREAT MORALITY?

As in Chari's fantasy ... (he made it up or INVENTED the story): Babuji allegedly said (see recent article on Sahaj Marg(tm) prophesies about impending "destruction":

Those who obey that immoral glorification of "MURDER", in their invented "BRIGHTER WORLD", will go: DOWN!!
