$ahaj Marg: A Financial $pirituality

Translation of an article by Alexis: "$ahaj Marg: Une $piritualité Financière", published on Elodie's blog in Europe: Pour Que Vive Le Sahaj Marg.

Comment by 4d-Don:  It appears that the "cleaning" ritual of this so-called "spiritual" path may also involve the "cleaning" (or "laundering")  of the so-called "corrupt " or material MONEY!!
Is this what some call the all-new: "Spiritual capitalism" or is that: "Spiritualist capitalism"??  

Chari's education foundation was called: Baal Vatika (translation: Baal Vatika = The Hermitage of Baal )  ...  Is  SRCM and Sahaj Marg(tm) attempting to become the all-new and laundered "Vatican" of Roman Catholicism?? 

Corruption or simply "GREED" ... POWER Lust! or simply: BUSINESS!

Sahaj Marg: A Financial $pirituality
A new article by Alexis: The main funders of $ahaj Marg  in 2013

Eight million dollars in foreign donations in 2013, down only slightly from 2012, the year that set the record.  Financial capital reported almost as much, or $7 million in interest.  Record expenditure of $8 million, with the purchase of land and property at its peak.

The financial capital for
SRCM and SMSF from foreigners and from Indians together now reached $60 million, it still grew by 12% in 2013. 

Topping the list of foreign donors include Madhava Reddy, his company and his foundation retaking the lead with $6,000,000. The Transnistrian (Russian?) oligarch Ilya Kazmaly and his offshore company (ies), champions in 2012, still ranks second with $590,000

Virtually ignoring Kamlesh Patel, his family and pharmacies, but we see the rise of some entrepreneurs: Shiv Kaushik and his company ICCG for $130,000 (in 5th place in the cumulative 8-year track record) or even Dayalan Veera and his company Master Scan for $120,000 (in 8th place over the past 8 years).

Overall, over a period of 8 years (2006-2013), the cumulative foreign donations reach $40 million, the interests on the capital $25 million, for a total proceeds of $65 million. Cumulative expenditure represents $24 million. Financial capital is increased from $19 to $60 million in 8 years.

Chari has won his wager: to finance the expenses of the Mission with the interest of the $ M $ F (SMSF - Sahaj Marg Spirituality (or "Spiritualism"?) Foundation) its foundation. Donations are not required anymore, but his wager was so successful that the donations continue to grow, with $21 million (or more than by half) in the past two years.

Difficult to predict a trend when 3 quarters of the donations over 8 years are based on 10 people; 60% on the shoulders of Reddy and KazmalyLogic suggests that interest becomes the main source of funding, but as these big donors (seem to?) will continue, it is the financial capital that flies, allowing ever more reckless spending.

At this rate, the foreign financial capital could reach $90 million by 2020, with $12 million annual in interest, as much in donations and spending almost as much ...

If we add the Indian capital, the land and the property, Chari is at the head of a wealthy multinational ... rich in spiritual and/or material?

Hi all...

Here is a comment left on my blog:

My Partner is an Abhyasi. A Testimonial!

Hello Guys,

I came across this website and read few articles. Not sure why you guys thoughts are so complicated.

I am an practitioner myself of the system for more than 15 years and my wife is not. She still follows the religion very sincerely. I don't get involved in here activities and she doesn't pester me to leave my way. We are happily married for 17 years now.

I suspect the problem with you guys is you want to know completely about something before you jump into it.

I read some messages that abhyasis fall on Chariji's feet. To my best knowledge those may be Indians and its in Indian custom to touch elders feet as a mark of greetings and showing respect. I personally dont do that.

I felt of writing these few words after seeing so much of negativity coming out from this blog. Hope I didn't hurt anybody's feelings.

Hi "anonymous"...

After 2,000 years of crusades, inquisitions, physical, intellectual and sexual abuse by the Christian priests and the "establishment" (Bishops, Cardinals, etc..) of the Roman Catholic Church, there are still over 1 BILLION "faithfulls" who are still "Roman Catholic" and who really believe that they are going to HEAVEN while the rest of us are going to HELL ...

Go figure ... What kind of "god" do they believe in, eh?) Christianity did not begin in corruption and neither did Sahaj Marg(tm)... or Sahaj "Mart", but as with Christianity, it became corrupt at the first generation and has not extricated itself from the lure of the material yet!! It is after all a RELIGION ... as usual, managed by BUSINESSMEN!!

Sahaj Marg(tm) was supposed to be a "spiritual" path (that means going "inside", as "spirit", if it exists at all, is not "matter" but is even more rarefied than "energy") and it (Sahaj Marg) has become an "outside" cult of a person really rapidly (in time ... decades)

If you think that there is a GOD out there and that "HE" (a male?) favours the abhyasis of Sahaj Marg (your cult of a person) over the Billions of Catholics or the Billions of Muslims (over the years), then as they say "down here" in the REALITY:

"Push but push evenly!!"

DO as you will with your time but to be SPIRITUAL, that means to "BE", not to BECOME and certainly not to "DO" ...

I believe in a different concept of the DIVINITY or the ONE-NESS of ALL ... and the Brighter World is simply the SRCM version of HEAVEN!! In the "clouds", or "out there" (i.e. Scientology)...

We, the "FREE thinkers" are simply trying to get some understanding between humans, (that's using the "intellect" or the "brain") and not simply OBEYING as some others who are happy being little sheepish children ... Others, such as those (we) who walk their own path, prefer to experience the FREEDOM which ONE-ness has CREATED for ALL ...

I don't have to BE like you to BE ... All of your difference is in DOING not in BEING ... In your "BEING", ALL of US, we are all ONE ...

So, go in Peace and only read what they tell you to read ... and specially: OBEY the PYRAMID which Chari has created for you and your obedient kind ....

Others (who are not "serfs") prefer FREEDOM and are content with THINKING for themselves ...
and writing our blogs for other "FREE thinkers", and those who are ready to experience FREEDOM... the FREEDOM of BEING!

Hey Don,

Do you have reference to source data? Would be interesting to see some stats.

Thanks in advance,


4d-Don said...

Hi Patrick...

You will notice that this article was written in French by Alexis and that I translated it. There is a link to Alexis' blog in the article.

I will send your request to our "finance expert and statistician" (Alexis who posts regularly on Elodie's blog in Europe) ... He may release his sources, and he may also reply in French and if so, I will try and translate his reply for you.

Alexis has "contacts" inside the organization and I don't think that he will divulge the name of those ...and he will protect their identity. But if you are a member of SRCM, you may be able to get all this info from the "organization" directly. (if they are "forthcoming" with their financial info...) But SRCM and specially SMSF are really privately owned and they don't have to report to the membership, which controls NOTHING!! ... All the assets are controlled by SMSF and Chari appoints those "businessmen" and donors as directors... He can also remove them.

I don't think you can replace the President (Chari), if you try. SRCM is a "dictatorship" and as such, should not be allowed in the UN DPI Program, which is reserved for "democratic" organizations... (according to their regulations.)

(Read the "addendum", according to Babuji SRCM is a "dictatorship)

... of the original SRCM Contstitution and By-Laws on this blog) :

For the info on "foreign donors", you can go to the first two paragraphs of this article on this blog (see links below) and the links as well as all the pertinent numbers are there. The links are to the "Government of India" site ... (foreign donors are required by law to be reported to the Government ... not so for "Indian Nationals" ...

It could take a few days to get a reply ...

An offshore company from the Virgin Islands (Mentor Financial Ltd) offered $10 million to the charismatic Charivari in 2012 and more than half a million in 2013, and is owned by two former officers of the KGB, Viktor Gushan and Ilya Kazmaly, co-founders of the holding company, Sheriff the largest company in Transnistria). Apparently these good buddies Charivari have unsavory friends.

Igor Girkin/Strelkov Aleksandr Boroday Vladimir Antjufeev/Shevtsov, Aleksandr Karaman, Oleg and Andrey Pinchuk Bereza have all gone through the Russians and/or Transnistrians Special Services. They all work now for the People's Republic of Donetsk in the Donbass region of Ukraine. How can they not know Gushan and Kazmaly?

On July 16, 2014 Vladimir Antjufeev became Vice Prime Minister of the Republic of Separatist Donetsk. He joined Aleksandr Boroday (self-appointed Prime Minister) and Igor Strelkov (Minister of Defence) to form a trio of Russian citizens. The next day July 17 flight 17 of the Malaysia Airlines was hit by a ground to air missile over the territory they control, with 298 victims .

The three men know each other well. They took part in secessionist military operations in the former Soviet Union on behalf of the Russian special services and especially in Transnistria (small separatist pro Russian Republic in eastern Moldova) during the conflict in the early 1990s.

While Strelkov and Boroday did not remain in Transnistria, Vladimir Antjufeev got married there and stayed for over 20 years under the pseudonym of Vadim Shevtsov. Specialist in creating new Independent States on behalf of Russia, he was in Riga in 1990 at the head of protesters who oppose the creation of independent Latvia. He fled before being arrested to reappear in Tiraspol in 1991 in the middle of the secessionist conflict against Moldova. Close to President Igor Smirnov, he served as head of the KGB in Transnistria from 1992 to 2012 he married Galina Antyufeyeva, the elected Member of the Supreme Soviet of Transnistria in 2000. In 2004 he was declared "persona non grata" by the European Union.

In early 2012 he left the country because of political disagreements with the newly elected President. He then worked in Security in South Ossetia and Abkhazia, and participated in the annexation operation of Crimea by Russia in the Spring of 2014 and arrived in Donetsk the following July.

As if that were not enough, he was joined in August by his old friend Aleksandr Karaman who will hold the position of Minister of Foreign Affairs of the People's Republic of Donetsk. A politician from Transnistria, Karaman is its Vice President in the Government of Igor Smirnov from 1991 to 2001

In 2002 he was appointed representative of Transnistria to the Russian Federation and Belarus, with the rank of Minister. He also shares with Antjufeev a taste for the new independent states close to the Kremlin. So he wrote a thesis on the creation and development of State Formations in the territory of the former USSR using the example of unrecognized states such as: Transnistria, Abkhazia, South Ossetia and Nagorno Karabakh.

Antjufeev does not stop there on such a good road. He surrounds himself with a team of over 30 experienced professionals close to the Secret Service and residents of Transnistria in Donetsk which include among others Bereza Oleg and Andrey Pinchuk, retired Officers of the Transnistrian KGB.

Decidedly Transnistrians and Russians who pass throught Transnistria are very present in the Ukrainians events of 2014. Today, there has a very fine continuum between the Ukrainian separatist regions, Russia and Transnistria. Indeed Transnistria is a model for Donetsk and serves as a foil to Kiev.

Hello Anonymous,

You taking us into a completely different field, that of Russian and European geopolitics. But what information do you have about the possible links between the preceptor and financier of Sahaj Marg, Ilya Kazmaly with all people you mention?

We need hard evidence, otherwise it is worthless. Thank you to contribute.

@ Don & Patrick,(translation by 4d-Don)

(Don, I let you translate if necessary)

The sources were indicated in my previous posts the past years, they have not changed, that's why I omitted reusing them.
Numbers (treated by me) come directly from the Ministry of Internal Affairs of India (ministry of home affairs), see links below:

or more directly

This is the "Foreign Contribution Regulation Act" (FCRA), which publishes data reported by NGOs, namely the data from SRCM and SMSF themselves information ...

Fill in the year of interest (2006 to 2013), set in Uttar Pradesh to find the list of SRCM, choose Tamil Nadu to find SMSF.

You can access the list of foreign donors (reminder: Indians do not appear !!!), and your on your own ...

@ Anonymous,

Interesting topic, but I totally agree with Elodie. You see, Patrick is asking for the sources of my article and he is right. We can not publish without evidence or broadcast strong presumptions.

We need something concrete, tangible links!

So if you have something, thank you for letting us know, otherwise it would simply be gratuitous defamation ...

Hey guys,

Really appreciate the digging. Kind of mental busy in work at the moment so haven't had a chance to look at the links provided. I will soon though! Again thank you.

It's interesting. I know the Mission keeps donations anonymous and don't give that sort of info out freely. However in the accounts in the UK and also Ireland it's a requirement that any director's disclose the amounts donated to the company (individual company not group as a whole). It's often suprising how generous some people are and how ungenerous others are!

Would be very interested in probing further. Give me time til things cool off in work!

All the best,

OK let drop Gushan and Kazmaly. But then a few words about the biggest donors to the charismatic American, Charivari.

These are all American entrepreneurs with commercial companies in the USA but not just Indians. They also have a variety of commercial companies in India often in association with Indian partners. Examples (verifiable by business registers):

Madhava Reddy Gopal, CEO, G. HTC Global Services, is also the co-leader of at least 5 Indian corporations: its Indian subsidiary HTC Global Services (India) Pvt. Ltd. since October 2001, but HTC Holdings Pvt. Ltd. since June 2005, HTC Global Financial Services Pvt. Ltd. since September 2007 and HTC Software Development Centre Pvt. Ltd. since September 2009

Finally, he bought the companies Mamta IT Services India Pvt. Ltd. and Twinkle Leatherware Pvt. Ltd. in April 2013; he directed all these companies with his wife Sobha and associated Indians Mudumby Venkata Narasimhacharya Indira Bhaskar Rao and Ramineni.

Madhusudan Rao Kothapalli, ex-CEO and co-founder of Core Pharma LLC. the U.S.A., created Apicore Pharmaceuticals Pvt. Ltd. in July 2006 in India with his former American Indians associates. In January 2012, he created Leiutis Pharmaceuticals Pvt. Ltd. then Enixta Innovations Pvt. Ltd. June 2014 The senior partners are Indians Ramprasad Nimmagada, Jagadeesh Babu Rangisetty and Manik Reddy Pullagurla. They also run Biophore India Pharmaceuticals Pvt. Ltd., Sionc Pharmaceuticals Pvt. Ltd. Sahaj and Life Sciences India Pvt. Ltd. Kothapalli is also the head of a charitable organization called Devaki Kanha Shanti Vanam since March 2010.

Shiv Kumar Kaushik, CEO of I.C.C.G. USA is also the co-leader with Sanjeev Kaushik of Independent Computer Consulting Company Pvt. Ltd. Since May 2005, the Independent Integrated Computer Services Pvt. Ltd. since April 2007, of PQRST Global Technologies India Pvt. Ltd. since September 2007, from Aasan Telecommunication Pvt. Ltd. since February 2009, Sarthak Venture Capital (India) Pvt. Ltd. since August 2009 and Jolly Bouy Ocean Foods Pvt. Ltd. since June 2014.

Sanjay Omprakash Sehgal, Chairman and D. G. MSys of Technology, is also the co-leader of Msys Tech India Pvt. Ltd. since December 2006 with Vineet Sehgal. Together they bought Clogeny Technologies Pvt. Ltd. in March 2014.

You will not make me believe that all these good people and all their Indian companies do not make donations to the charismatic Charivari directly in India too. Their donations from the USA are only the tip of the iceberg.

I am an Indian and I know where Michael, Don, Christian are coming from. SRCM(TM) shrewdly hides the fact that contributing to numbers and the physical expansion of their mission is linked to their idea of spiritual progress. This is revealed only when a new recruit is sufficiently indoctrinated.

In the earlier books babuji's core statement that "God is not to be found within the folds of a sect the innermost recesses of the heart..'" used to be present however looks like this is now removed.

Service to an organisation can never lead to spiritual progress. During my association I closely observed many senior functionaries and found most of them to be rude and arrogant - with the odd exception. The self is the only thing that is real, a guru's function is only to remove the false notion that the world is real.

A Guru who leads us to believe that a spiritual state is something to be gained anew is not worth the name.

Michael said...

My role as a preceptor was removed as unexpectedly as it was bestowed upon my by Mr. P. Rajagopalachari in 1990.

After a flurry of letters where Mr. PR could not offer a consistent reason for the removal, he finally settled upon the notion that I was, "disobedient in matters of the Mission" AND, if I remained quiet for 6 months, he would restore my position. This, I suspect was due to my refusal to collude with two senior US preceptors objective to have the preceptor in charge of my center discredited and/or removed. It was the reason I was unexpectedly made a Preceptor, and the reason why I was also unexpectedly removed.

With the cat out of the bag as to the intention of my hasty promotion and subsequent demotion, it left me with two key facts to consider as a self thinking, spiritual person:

1. PR's assumption that I would be lured into submission with the promise of having my position restored clearly demonstrated how out of touch he was with the person I was then and am now. His willingness to use his authority at the behest of those who he was indebted to for establishing his authority in the US was even more disconcerting . Therefore, I had to conclude in my heart that he could not be trusted to provide any sort of guidance to me, spiritual or otherwise.

2. Mr. PR had added new and (to me) very disturbing spiritual objective to SRCM, placing at the highest priority - Obedience to the Mission.

These two facts compelled me to run, not walk away from SRCM after more than 10 years of practice - and never look back. My Spiritual Journey truly began at that instant as it forced me to trust and rely on my own heart to make decisions on my spiritual Journey.

I am eternally grateful for the lessons learned in my decade of involvement in SRCM, but even more grateful for the unintended push that thrust me into the most amazing Journey that continues to this day!

Hi Michael...

Thanks for that interesting perspective ...


Michael is an ex-preceptor of Sahaj Marg and SRCM (the Chari faction which was to be later registered in San Luis Obispo, California in 1997) ... He was also on the "Publishing Committee" and has edited some of Chari's speeches for Publication ...

For Michael's full story and perceptions on Sahaj Marg, Chari and the SRCM, see his site (see early articles for a historical perspective):

A short tour among the Indians directors of the Sriram (or Shri Ram Chandra Mission... or, SRCM):

Krishna Parthasarathi Rajagopalachari, the son of the charismatic Charivari (Chari?), is co-ceo of Prianka Exim Trade Pvt. Ltd. since June 1995 in Madras (Chennai), of Stahl Tecniks Pvt. Ltd. since March 2011 in New Delhi and of Aakaash Design Studio LLP in Madras (Chennai) since August 2014.

Ajay Kumar Bhatter first dauphin (successor in waiting?) of the charismatic Charivari (I'm not talking about the second, Kamlesh Patel who is into the New York Pharmacy, it has already been done), is not only owner of the Prabartak Jute Mills Manufacturing Ltd. of Calcutta, with a business turnover of over 400 million, but also of Omega Powmet LLC since July 2014, still in Calcutta.

Does anyone know what the recent worldwide message was all about? I tried to watch it but it was long and full of hot air like always, although he mentioned there is fear as a whisper said "fourth and last master" in a message. Maybe Helene is going crazy, working against him, or something? Or it was a mistake and he urgently needed to present the image of a stable foundation to be around for years to come?
So sketchy looking when the camera pans out and Kamlesh is there and some other goofy looking Indian guy.

Hi Anonymous...

Sorry... I have no idea.

If you want to give the full contents here, someone may know the meaning ... But "recent worlwide message ... " is not enough information ...

"Fourth and last master" eh? Hmmm!

And Helene must be the "Anonymous French Lady Medium" ... The SRCM Medium is so cryptic like all "Spiritualists"
... They try and keep everyone guessing so they will keep reading and "buying" ....
