At Sahaj Marg (tm), It's Full Powers For Kamlesh D. Patel

Translation of an article by Élodie: "Les Pleins Pouvoirs Pour Patel", on her blog: "Pour Que Vive Le Sahaj Marg", in Europe.

4d-Don's Humour!

A Fairy Tale From The Brighter World

Curtains open to harp music in the background as a "being of light" enters from STAGE RIGHT, calling:

"Spiritualist delivery from the "Central Region of the Brighter World"...

"Message for Chari!! Message for Chari!!"
"Will there be any return mail?? Will that be "Air mail", "Space mail", "Quantum mail"?

Will that be registered as "SPECIAL" delivery? ...This service is meant only for "special entities", and is delivered at or beyond the speed of LIGHT??

(Oh! My God ... Give us a break!! Give your head a shake!!)


The Sahaj Marg(tm) spiritualist clan makes up a fairy tale, and then they believe their own "TALES" ... How sad!! Would you buy "drugs" from this clan led by a spiritualist druggist ??Why do they need doctors and drugs? They can allegedly simply write and mail Babuji a letter in the Brighter World, the in-accessible Central Region!!

Are "miracles" now part of Sahaj Marg(tm)?

Could this be an example of the Board of Directors of Spiritualist SRCM (California-1997) dealing with "Improper and Evil Practices - Stoppage of" with their non-existing invention called: "Standard of Spiritualism" as mentionned in Chari's SRCM (California-1997) Constitution and "Bye" - Laws, ... See: Page 14, Section 11 ??

Another fantasy which exists in their MIND only !!

Full powers For Patel

What actually happened on August 15?

Chari began by resigning all his duties, but at the request of the Working Committee, he remains the president of SRCM, while giving full powers to his (newly-appointed?) vice president Kamlesh D. Patel.
Patel is not quite yet the third president of the Mission, he probably will be after the death of Chari, but he now has all the power. Thus, as of today, Chari is nothing but a sort of honorary president.

Who is this
Plenipotentiary Vice President ?

Kamlesh Desaibhai
Patel was born in Gujarat (State in Western India bordering on Pakistan) some fifty years ago. He emigrated to the United States, to Staten Island, in the state of New York, more than 20 years ago, and became a pharmacist in Brooklyn.He is an early-comer to Sahaj Marg, an abhyasi from the earliest period, preceptor for almost as long, going through all the positions of responsibility (area-in-charge region-in-charge, etc..), to positions as director of the American Foundation (Sahaj Marg Spirituality Foundation -SMSF) and chief mediator of the new World Service Team of SRCM. He made several "donations" to the SRCM, among which ten acres of land for a retirement center.He has been appointed by Chari as his successor, the next spiritual Representative of his divine master, Babuji and future President of SRCM for life, in a written document written at the Diamond Jubilee Park at Tiruppur, July 26, 2011, and co-signed by U.S. Bajpai, AK Bhatter Bhatia and Sanjay, but officially announced two months later. This second Tiruppur statement has received approval from Babuji, in a message to Chari, confirming the choice of the person to succeed him.
Following his appointment, Patel moved to the Garden of Hearts (Chennai), at the Babuji Memorial Ashram.

The reactions were not long to arrive!

Navneet and Puneet (sons of Umesh) remain silent, but that is not the case with their cousin Sharad Chandra Saxena, the eldest son of Babuji's grandchildren and his sidekick Shubh Chintak Kishore.
In 1982, Babuji (allegedly) told him:
“nature will punish him [Chari] during his last living days. (…) Sharad all I have, I have transferred it to you. Here after you will be the one and only powerful person”. Today, Sharad adds: “Recently, when I came to know about Chari’s physical condition, I remembered His said words; now nature has started taking its part.”

S.C. Kishore
adds that the courts have only designated Chari as intermediary president, and that, thanks to his ill-gotten money at the head of the Mission. Accordingly, he has no right to appoint the next president. He (allegedly) would also have manipulated the financial accounts of the Sahaj Marg Mission, diverting it from its objectives. According to Kishore, anyone can increase the number of abhyasis, but few can guarantee honesty in the financial management of the Mission and the purity of Sahaj Marg. Babuji has (allegedly) appointed his grandson Sharad, and S.C. Kishore to take things in hand, under his direct supervision See: ( under "Latest Events").

The claims of the
descendants of Babuji so as to recover the mission is far from extinct. Is it to reinstate the purity of the system or to benefit at their turn from the accumulated wealth? Everyone will decide for him/herself.

From his side Narayana, son of Dr. Varadachari, and as well the followers of Sister Kasturi, have never accepted that Chari may be the spiritual representative of Babuji. It is not today that they will change. Http:// on August 11, Ek abhyasi quotes Babuji:

"Persons who claim that they have made their conscience as their guru, are under a wrong notion because the fact is that not the conscience but their ego becomes their guru which leads to undesirable results.

(…) 'Please do not take any thing for granted even if God in human form comes and says that He is God unless and until He makes you understand according to your level of wisdom that why and how He is so.' This will develop clarity in understanding which will tell us about the fake spiritual leader from whom one should get rid of soon".

The exceptional thing with Babuji Maharaj is that he never treated himself a guru rather he used to say and has also written in his book "Reality at Dawn","God is the real guru or Master and we get light from Him alone. But as it is extremely difficult for a man of ordinary talent to draw inspiration from God direct, we seek one of our fellow beings who has established his connection with Almighty. He must, therefore, treat himself as the humblest servant of God serving humanity in the name of the Great Master. All through his (Lalaji) life, he treated his associates as brethren. The idea that they were his disciples never once crossed his mind. I think and feel it as an essential thing for a guru to give up his masterly position and feel himself an ordinary servant of humanity. If he feels himself as a Master and hence far above his associates, it will be Ahankar (ego) of the worst type in a guru."The critical watermark of the behavior of Chari, the ordinary man, is obvious.

No applause came to punctuate Chari's proposal to appoint Kamlesh Patel as the head of the Mission. The applause of the 2,000 abhyasis in the room began to resonate when the Working Committee had asked Chari to remain as president and he accepted. Patel, ostensibly very emotional by Chari's proposal, must have felt very alone and began to measure the difficulties which lie ahead for him to one day being recognized and approved.

He will have to win the souls of the abhyasis one by one intern-ally, if he wants to one day enjoy the same popularity as Chari. And now externally, one can also notice things stirring, the last thirty years (1983-2012) may well have been a parenthesis in the history of Sahaj Marg, that could be closing at Chari's death. For once, Chari's nightmare of seeing his SRCM (California-1997) disintegrate into 240 small missions could be prescient. For spirituality in general, it is the best we can hope for.


Copy of the
transcript of the SRCM statements from the Extraordinary General Meeting of Shri Ram Chandra Mission, August 15, 2012 at Manapakkam:

Parthasarathi Rajagopalachari (PR) :

Dear brothers and sisters,

I thank you all for coming to this Extra-Ordinary Annual General meeting at such short notice, especially after most of you have been to Tiruppur – after a wild goose chase there. Circumstances beyond my control have brought out these events, and it is with great personal effort that I am here before you today. Your response, your overwhelming response, indicates to me that what my dear Babuji Maharaj writes again and again in Whispers is true: that hearts are beginning to open to Reality, that people want the spiritual life more and more, are willing to commit themselves more and more, and give themselves to it more and more, which is a very good sign.
Now I have been in bed for forty-five days, since the fifth of July. The first two, three weeks went very bad. Subsequently also it is not so very bad, but bad. I think, personally I think, it will take a few more weeks for me to be on my feet though my doctors say, “Today,” “Tomorrow,” “Today,” “Tomorrow.” I have been thinking a lot about the Mission. Over the past two and a half, three years, I have sent messages to Babuji Maharaj that my eyesight is failing. He knows about it. Of course, he says, “These things happen,” but the practical implication is that I can’t read emails, somebody has to read them; I have to dictate, somebody has to type them, and that is not something that a president should be doing. It is not correct. When I sign cheques I have to ask brother MDS, “Where is this going? What for? What is the amount?” and then sign, because I can’t see. Now, during the last one month, my signature itself has become a scribble, sort of. So I have come to the conclusion that it would not be proper for me to continue as President. After all, Kamlesh Patel is ready. He has been nominated and accepted worldwide. All the legal things have been put in place. There is nothing … the working committee must just take a signature from him saying, “I accept to be the President,” like they did in Hyderabad in ’83, and that is that, you see. So to make sure that I would not be going on the wrong track, I wrote to beloved Babuji Maharaj. Somebody read it.

Kamlesh Patel :

This letter is written by our beloved Master:

11 August 2012, Saturday, 12:15 pm

Beloved Babuji Maharaj,

I prostrate at your feet. I have been very unwell for four weeks now, during which I have suffered a great deal. I have turned eighty-five years old. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. Solely in the interests of the Mission and its proper guidance, I propose to transfer all the powers of the President, under the constitution and by-laws, to brother Kamlesh Patel and request the working committee to announce him as the third president of the Mission on the fifteenth of August 2012. He is ready for the job and all the legal formalities have already been put in place. I have therefore called for an extra-ordinary general meeting of the Mission on the fifteenth August morning, which is to accomplish this fact.
On that morning, I shall cease to be the President and Kamlesh Patel shall take over as the next representative.

[Working Committee Member continues reading]

On that morning, I shall cease to be President, and Kamlesh Patel shall take over as the next representative. I have to humbly make this suggestion because my body is very weak. During these four weeks I have been spoon-fed by my children and unable to get out of bed. I do not foresee any improvement in my health status. If the hierarchy so decides, I shall continue as the Master of Sahaj Marg.
Dear Master, I require clear instructions in this matter.

With my love,

Your son,


PR : I received his reply promptly.

Working Committee Member :

Master has received this reply from revered Babuji Maharaj.

Saturday, August 11, 2012, 4 pm

My dearest son,
That idea is agreeable to us. You may implement it according to the wishes you have expressed. You must imperatively free yourself from anything that currently weighs heavily on you. As we have said previously, the essential part of your activity is going on in a masterly fashion. Make all the decisions you deem appropriate. Make it all clear and irrefutable. You know human reactions better than anyone else, as you have suffered first-hand from them so much. Likewise, your future successor will endure a lot of it. Take care of yourself, dear great Parthasarathi. You are so precious to our hearts. The remainder of your Earthly life is important in terms of clarifying things. We cannot avert all the turbulence prompted by your health problems. You know the matter well; it is needless to insist on it. Do everything you deem necessary for your peace of mind and the welfare of the Mission. More than ever, we are at your side. Be at peace as much as the current situation permits. When you come and rejoin us on the heavenly fields with the whole of your bodies, you will be able to truly assess the incredible work you have accomplished for this great Mission. We carry you with utmost love and we support you in every respect.

We all here wish you all the best.

Babuji Maharaj

PR : Apart from these messages, which are my personal exchanges with Babuji Maharaj, he has been sending open messages every day for the last two, three weeks, emphasising the importance of whatever it is. I am not running away from anything. You all know I have never run away from anything. But when I cannot do anything, what is the alternative? So that is why I have taken this decision. The working committee may deliberate on it and let me know what they want. All right?

[Working committee members suggest that Master continue as President and brother Kamlesh be nominated as Vice-President.]

PR : With all powers.

Aap log samajh gaye na mera prastaav? Bhaion, beheno, spasht samjhe na?

[Did you all understand my proposal? Brothers and sisters, did you understand clearly?]

Mera vichaar hai ki bhai Kamlesh Patel ko abhi President bana den aur mein chutti le loon. Lekin hamare buzurg log kehte hain ki Kamlesh Patel ko abhi Vice-President bana deejiye with all powers.

[My thought is that brother Kamlesh Patel can be made the President now and I can take leave. But our seniors here are saying, “Please make brother Kamlesh Patel the Vice-President now, with all powers.”]


Abhyasis :

PR : All right, I agree.


To aaj hi kar deejiye kaagazaat waagazaat

[Prepare the documents today]: “as Vice-President who shall enjoy the powers of the constitution and shall do everything as if it is done by the President.” Appoint Kamlesh Patel as Vice-President of Shri Ram Chandra Mission, who will enjoy all the powers of the constitution and by-laws, and all actions done by him will be as done by the President.

[Master gives a brief sitting]

PR : Kai doctor – sab yahaan ghire huey hain hamaare. Unka kehna hai hamen yahaan se seedha bistre (pe) jaana hai, kafi strain ho chuka hai. Mujhe afsos hai ki har ek se hum mil nahi paayenge, na vidai le paayenge. Voh hoga, phir kabhi milenge. Sab ko aashirvaad hai.

[My doctors, who are all around me, tell me that I should go straight to bed and that I have strained myself too much. I regret that I will not be able meet each one of you individually, nor say goodbye. It may happen when we meet again.

Blessings to all of you.]

(Translated from Elodie's Blog): Pour Que Vive Le Sahaj Marg:

@ Elodie

Of course, legitimacy is acquired, it is not inherited! I am the first to say it ...

But we must recognize that Chari has perfectly managed his estate so far and it is very difficult for anyone inside the SRCM to claim the title ... unless to frontally oppose his decisions, a crime of lèse majesté !

After his death, perhaps in a pinch, you could see PR Krishna or Bhargav claim a part of the cake. But not before ... And in spite of his sinister-looking and hangdog appearance at times, Patel is the head of a nice little windfall. It helps ...

The disintegration will be slow and gradual, unless he finds a charismatic formula such as that which Chari had superbly developed ...

On the outside, with the death of Kasturi is a whole generation that disappears. There is no longer any leader capable of uniting the abhyasis. Narayana is not his father! There is nobody. As for the grandchildren of Babuji, they never dreamed of anything other than the loot gathered by Chari. Before the courts, they will not weigh very heavily, considering the money of the Mission and its network of influence. Navnnet, Puneet and their father (Umesh) have broken their teeth when they had legitimacy (the letter from Babuji). Sharad has nothing to offer other than his word, which was already rejected in 1983 ... To jump on one's prey when it is down after 30 years of silence, it could not be more opportunistic! not to say more ...

Hello Alexis,

Chari first seduced the Europeans, first and foremost, the Danes.

This has not stopped many groups initiated by Babuji, mainly in France, not to follow and to keep their distance.

With his lack of charisma, Patel faces a worse haemorrhaging. Many of the older Abhyasis have left Chari, his success is to have attracted a different audience, especially abroad. Will Patel do as well? I doubt it, the potential reservoir is more limited now.

Sister Kasturi is unfortunately gone, but there are still very high quality preceptors who will be able make themselves known to the true spiritual seekers.

The breakup seems inevitable, many will remain by the road-side, but I hope it will at last bring about the spiritual renewal that I have called for with all my best wishes for seven years now, at least for the sincere seekers.

I dare believe that it will require the abhyasis to think,to compare and to choose for themselves. That would be a lot.

You should read the "special" whisper message that was sent out to everyone from September 4. It basically says "look, we are the only ones using this method of communication (channelling) and you should all open your minds and accept it so we can move forward. Stop being unevolved, accept these channelings as a rare special form of communication, and accept that they will be dictating you the rules from here on out.". I like how they use the word "forward" like it's the Obama campaign.

It's basically a way of saying, we will put up smoke and mirrors and claim we are receiving our directives from on high, then because our instructions come from a rare and special magical source, you better accept them gladly and carry out their orders, or risk being labelled unevolved. You don't want to be unevolved, do you? No, of course you don't honey, here, drink this Kool-aid, and get out your checkbook.

Hi Anonymous...

Thanks for that "News Flash"...

As you can probably surmise, I do not subscribe to "Whispers From The Brighter World", so I don't have a copy of that "inter-communication" from the Central Region of the Brighter World where the "spirit" of long-deceased Babuji is allegedly now "BEING" ...

Do you have a copy or could you make a copy (typed, if no link is easily access-able by all, or if a scan is not available) for the enlightenment of our readers?

If anonymous does not have a copy of this WHISPER, does any of the readers of this blog have a copy of this Whisper to make available to us for an article? I will post this in Europe also.

Have fun ... Sahaj Marg(tm) and SRCM (California-1997) has become such a "Spiritualist Scam" that I feel duty-bound, as Harry Houdini and other "ghost-busters", to expose them!!

There was another "adherent" of Sahaj Marg a few years back, (Yogesh Patak of Brampton, Ontario), who after threatening me Legal action for my blog and my comments on Wikipedia, was recently arrested and charged under a century-old Canadian law which prohibits "witchcraft"...He allegedly took $5,000.00 from a lady in exchange for a promise to make her financial problems disappear.... They did not, so she allegedly phoned the police.

Thanks for your heads-up...

Warn your families who are involved in this scam as "victims" of SPIRITUALISM...

Hi Don,
Thanks for your perseverance! I will attempt to write out the message now. Here we go:

We are waiting for you here in this sacred place where your heart lays itself bare. This surrender allows messages to be noted down. Having a gift would not be enough; for this, another dimension must be added to this mediumistic capacity. It requires total commitment and, above all, extraordinary love. An appropriate vibration ensures that these lines are written and in time will produce a tremendous contribution to our Mission. In the future, these writings will become unavoidable; they will be an integral part of our teaching, that is how it is. Minds will keep opening up to this reality for the good of human beings. Unprecedented openness will occur in this direction; we need to go forward and lead our brothers and sisters to a broad understanding of these phenomena that are ignored by many people. Progress continues to be cited; it seems to be the key word in this modern society. Perhaps it too should open up to other possibilities far removed from materiality!
"Our brothers and sisters should also approach this reality that is beyond them. Indeed, since this reality is voluntarily ignored, modern society does not have access to knowledge as proposed in these times when darkness prevails on many levels. These comments may be shocking, but it is high time that minds open up and that this aspect of life is no longer ignored. We are not the first ones in this area to use this means of communication. We have already said it, but it was never made clear, hence the current state of ignorance on this point in certain countries. We need to go forward; therefore may all abhyasis open up to this teaching. Such is our wish for the good of all."
Babuji Maharaj

Shall I translate this for any of you? OK, here we go:
Stop thinking critically, and stop questioning these messages that are coming straight from the divine! Who are you to question these messages, you who live in ignorance, you who are not yet evolved enough to open to "certain realities"?
You are not to question these divine dictates, but gladly accept them!

Thanks, glad to be of service. I am free to translate any whispers, for anyone who is curious. No charge! Just send me the page number, and include which volume number (1-4), and I'll post a translation.

Happy cult-skewering!

Hey anonymous...

What Spiritualists have claimed throughout history has been show to be false by "science and technology"...

Religion and "Spiritualism" has been de-bunked over and over throughout history... Show some examples if you think differently ... To just make claims is so "bogus"...

Where is your "evidence" of "...not real will be accepted in the future as reality with evidence" in history...


4d-Don said...

Hi again anonymous...

This comment box is here for you to "show your evidence" if you think we are wrong ... Put up or shut up.

Like the religious and "spiritualists" you believe in fantasies and messages from an "anonymous French Lady Medium" who claims to get messages from "Chari's wife, Chairi's mother, "other elevated soulds", and "beings of light"... (And these have "no names" apparently). Are you getting messages from "EVIL" spirits? You don't know!! Where is your evidence?

Judging by the divisions in your "clan" I would say that your "spirits" are very divisive and are causing many problems for mankind... Either the 'spirits" or the leadership and the Medium who you seem to believe without knowing her name...

Now show your evidence for your claims in this box ... Don't just make un-substantiated claims as phoney spiritualists from the past in "his-story" ... a real TALL TALE ... indeed. "messages from "spirits" ... lol lol lol


4d-Don said...

Hi again anonymous..

To your comment #3...

... And then you repeat yourself, thinking that repeating the same silliness will make it true!!

Repeat: "there is a "santa claus" and check it out... Then show your evidence in a "scientific" way!!

Then try with the "tooth fairy", the Easter Bunny, etc... etc...

Then you can wonder what you (and your group) are teaching the children at your schools ... How sad!! You are training the "DIVISIVE-ness" for tomorrow...

If not, then show your evidence for your "spiritualist" claims...

Babuji claims to have "replaced" Sufism with his Sahaj Marg(tm)... Is that true?? Has Sufism dis-appeared or does it continue??

Has the "Naqshbandiya Sufi Brotherhood" dismantled and "breathe their last" as Babuji claimed during his life? ... I can show you evidence that Sufism is still alive and vibrant ... but Sahaj Marg is really divided against itself ... read the site of Babuji's family and talk to them ... They claim to get different messages from their "grandfather"... or do you dis-respect the family of your FOUNDER??

READ their section called SPOTLIGHT!! That is "evidence"!!
