A Summary of Art of Living’s Questionable Activities – in Spanish

October 28, 2012

Following on from the recent furore of Ravi Shankar’s recent visit to Argentina, one of our readers has spent a great deal of effort putting together a presentation which contains details of a great many of Art of Living’s activities which many who follow this blog feel need to be exposed to the public.

UPDATE: It seems that someone in Art of Living doesn’t want the public to see this presentation, and as such they asked for it to be removed from SlideShare. This is a real shame as we here believe the public should really take the time to see what is contained in this revealing document. And after all, if Art of Living really are a legitimate company with nothing whatsoever to hide, then there shouldn’t be any reason for them to be fearful of anything contained in the document, right? As such, we have decided to upload the original document to as many different places as we could find, beginning of course with this very blog.

Hope you all enjoy the presentation!

    Here’s a computer translation of the text slides from the slide show.. The following one is a compilation of available information to the public on the internet, which is mainly written in English language and Hindi, and of great value at the moment of to evaluate a phenomenon of so aggressive growth. The diffusion of this information does not pursue defamatory end but the search of an exact knowledge of the side odd-sancto of this sectarian group, by virtue of its aggressive and partial propaganda campaign. Entity growth of the chests of the organization. What in the eighties was born Smiles beáticas. Happy and peaceful faces. Contagious peace. In the thickness of followers recently arrived, these expressions are authentic… but in the I exercise of instructors of the courses of the Art to Live this is so alone a facade behind which hides an impious competence and a scruples lack total. The unique thing that counts is to please the leader doing him its favorite tribute: An aggressive recruitment of new followers and the consecucomo a course with technical anti-stress has become an organization of pyramidal commerce that, under the facade of humane works and mystical charisma, collects fortunes millionaires thanks to the indoctrination and brainwashing of its instructors. Continue everything that comes with attention… does not have waste. In Argentina the fundacion The Art to Live prefers not to exhibit openly the economic power that distinguishes them in the world as “one of the but ambitious Indian products of export of the last times”. Far from being the ngo that declares to be, gathers all the requirements of a sectarian-religious organization that applies coaching coercive to indoctrinate its followers and to enrich its pyramid scheme of profits. The promotion of their projects of charity, the income orchestrated in disaster settings, as well as the lack of scruples in being take advantage of the different world crisis (in these days are dictating in Europe a seminar from three days to 1,500 Euro by head) subtracts him credibility, every time that it be compared with the wealth that accumulate. The leader is produced to give to West an aspect of modern Jesus, but inside doors he yields fervent adoration to the God of the power and of the money. that its instructors are devout of the guru that dictate the courses of completely voluntary way and that it collected is destined to charitable deeds; Nevertheless, it turns out to be easy to perceive that the combination of a labor force of low cost, more the sale of all its products with exemption tax center is used especially for investments real estate agencies everywhere, businesses of services and actions with headquarters in the India, and financing of mega-events and promotional tours by of the world, among other things. Similar volume of incomes, compared with the percentage destined to humane works is completely disproportionate: an organization with similar patrimony does not operate, exactly, to the cost. The enrichment goes exclusively to the chests of the spiritual leader, their family and their nearby circle, while instructors of long path today withdrawn agonize slowly in public hospitals in the India, abandoned by the organization to which they have devoted their lives. Know more than the rentabilísimos business of the group Ravishankar: The organization incorporated the techniques known from EST (Erhard Training) in its courses you experience them. The techniques, conveniently mixed with respiratory practices and meditation, inside a framework of humane idealism and mystical fervor, multiplied fast the number of followers and the sales volume. Subsequently the orders can be seen of Coaching Coercive (or EST or Landmark) inside the content of the courses of the Art to Live. Course Phase I The course is dictated behind closed doors in a parlor private, cut off from noises or exterior distractions. The participants should not maintain contact with the exterior world during the duration of the same one (telephones). The seats for a great physical proximity are arranged that inhibit the individual thought and reinforce the collective perception. The environmental climate, the bombardment of love and the content of the course produces a reduction of the state of warning of the participants as well as of the critical thought. It is required the assistants to perform a modification of its diets (poor in Proteins) during the course, and causes consumes them itself large quantities of mineral water during the same one. The intervals are determined in which the group will be able to go to the bath. These apparently innocent orders aim at to submit to the agency to a condicionamiento external. The overcrowding of the thought and of the biological functions is sought. The participants should appoint a companion for “to be taken care of” mutually (angelito). Of that form the organization does not need to pursue directly the participants to be assured of its assistance. It causes memorizes to the group an assembly of terms and phrases to reinforce the sense of ownership: By ej., Jai Gurudev, I belong to You, what resists, persists, etc). The respiratory techniques achieve an increment of the relaxation that obviously very well is received for the participants. In that state of relaxation and welfare returns a lot more simple to wound them to the indoctrination. They are formulated you ask ambiguous existential to favor the confusion and the change of foci (by ej., the importance to take responsibility by the commitments). Processes are carried out of highly emotional load (by ej. The play of the looks: ” If God descended in the form of the person to whom you are looking at, would accept him?” Close of the course: bombardment of affection and repetitive songs to facilitate the collective trance. Before being withdrawn, is instructed the assistants not to reveal their content to third parties; is argued that “upon being vivencial” is not possible to explain of what treats, nevertheless the objective of this argument is to do that the graduates stimulate their close people so that they hire the course. With the supervised respiration sessions to attend argument, is invited the graduates to participate weekly in encounters (Satsangs). During the encounters breathes, meditates and repetitive and monotonous phrases are sung that facilitate brief periods of trance. To the closing of the encounter the purchase is promoted of more courses, is sold merchandising, events are promoted abroad and the is invited to donate voluntary working hours. Also they are sent emails daily with reflections of the teacher and they recall the events to take place soon. Soon, the new followers are found with a new group of ownership and they begin to be separated of their emotional and family environments, besides investing sums of money in events, various articles, trips and in the form of free work. During several days and in a framework of communal life lacking of privacy, the participants are submitted to sessions that include: Physical disciplines (exercises, group tasks), Control of the biological functions (hours of dream, frequency of foods, urination, change of diet, Influence of mental processes by means of meditations guided and trances induced, Repetition of canticles by the nights repetitive canticles are carried out that induce to moments of collective trance, followed by superstitious fables on the powers “magical” of the teacher to promote the endiosamiento of the leader. The practices cause an alienation of the individual perception, enlarged by the passiveness of the vow of silence. The decrease of the psychic resistance they do that for the end of the retreat the assistants have embraced the orders of the sect. The emotional bombardment, to the closing of the encounter, on the other hand, does that any discomfort suffered be disguised and relegated to a place of the subconscious. It is submitted the contenders to various processes: I work communal, physical Fatigue, Deprivación of the dream, Wear of mind, Restrictions in the diet, Sessions of meditation/trance, Sessions of emotional rupture, (hot seat sessions), training Sessions for recruit/sell courses. In the end of each day the group gathers to celebrate the leader with canticles of adoration and collective suggestion, elevating the spirit of the followers. With this itself confine to the subcosciente any trace of emotional trauma suffered during the day. In a meeting is encouraged to the members of the group to share intimacies of its lives. By ej., a member confesses to the group that of girl he was abused by its pregnant father remaining, and an abortion was done. Later, the same group to which the member confessed his trauma he will use that information for inflingirle emotional rupture, declaring his hostility and public prison sentence: “sure that you seduced your father, sure sought him you, are a murderer of babies, did not want to take responsibility by that murder, and now want to believe you a victim” After the damage, is left upon hounding in solitude, confused and and disconcerted. This does not it want to be identified with the image that of itself that was rejected by the group, and will desire “to leave all behind and to begin again”. A similar situation to the Sindrome of Stockholm is produced. The techniques of respiration or Sudarshan Kriya very is discussed in the medical environment, and the majority has reserves on their benefits and their danger, therefore they consider it a hyperventilation. The organization answers to such questionings presenting studies carried out by doctors. Nevertheless such studies have not been validated for the world scientific community. The assistants to the courses are not evaluated clinically to rule out any effect damaging collateral. They exist in the world accusations of serious effects collaterals suffered by people that carried out the practices in daily form for many years. It is known besides that some instructors suggest people just like the Church of the Cientología, The Art to Live shows enormous interest by recruiting to important figures of each country to influence positively in the opiniòn public without need to invest in campaigns. In the same way seeks to grasp to members recognized of the political environment and key figures inside the massive mass media. The group considers preference the medium-high stripe of the company Argentina, who question except the destiny of the collections. This social stripe, besides, there is iconizado to the courses as something of “fashion” (by ej., the festivals Yoga Rave, created to recruit to young people). Though the politics to charge the courses is very strict, in the case of media personages, institutional authorities, religious leaders and workers of press the group does an exception with obvious end. The technique of cohersión in the course Phase I is so subtle that only a few detect it. The Supreme Court in India emitted notes to the Art to Live a petition questioning the construction of luxurious structures in the ground of water of Udipalva kere in Kaggalipura, to the south of Bangalore. The learned one N. Sriram Reddy has begun a litigation of interest I publish seeking authorization of the cut to demolish all the illegal structures construídas by the organization and that the same one exploits in its benefit. The applicant demanded that the existing tanks of water in you said grounds should be preserved and that the same were built in 1960 with the intention to provide irrigation to the farmers of the zone. The natural tank was built with an area of registered contention of 42,52 hectareas and area of irrigation of 14,8 hectareas. The great tank has become a lake. The petition alleges that The Art to Live has acquired the lands illegally and built various buildings without authorization. It is discussed that the Department of Irrigation have not taken any action when in reality was its obligation the to demolish any illegal construction in the area. In India (country of origin of Ravishankar), the information on the irregularities of its organization is so much that not even its influence in some media (as the periodic one Indian Times) manages to dissemble it. Among them: The bank accounts in tax havens and Swiss, The bureaus through its group of businesses, The scandals in the organization, The affairs political, The obsession of the leader by to be named Nobel Prize of the Peace (with political end) The illegal expropriation of lands (with following, judicial cause paginates), The enrichment of its family and more immediate circle, The doubts on the authenticity of the academic titles that shows off, The car-denomination of “SriSri” (Its Holiness), The lack of ethics and spirituality of its “apostles” or followers, and its serious psychic disturbances and splitting of personalities, The physical abuses inflingidos by these under the protection of the guru, The accusations of kidnapping of its courses, All it added to the megalomanía of a guru that a divine incarnation is believed and that aspires to that for its birthday 80 there be an its portrait in each home of the world”.

Entity growth of the chests of the organization. What in the eighties was born Smiles beáticas. Happy and peaceful faces. Contagious peace. In the thickness of followers recently arrived, these expressions are authentic… but in the I exercise of instructors of the courses of the Art to Live this is so alone a facade behind which hides an impious competence and a scruples lack total. The unique thing that counts is to please the leader doing him its favorite tribute: An aggressive recruitment of new followers and the consecucomo a course with technical anti-stress has become an organization of pyramidal commerce that, under the facade of humane works and mystical charisma, collects fortunes millionaires thanks to the indoctrination and brainwashing of its instructors. Continue everything that comes with attention… does not have waste. In Argentina the fundacion The Art to Live prefers not to exhibit openly the economic power that distinguishes them in the world as “one of the but ambitious Indian products of export of the last times”. Far from being the ngo that declares to be, gathers all the requirements of a sectarian-religious organization that applies coaching coercive to indoctrinate its followers and to enrich its pyramid scheme of profits. The promotion of their projects of charity, the income orchestrated in disaster settings, as well as the lack of scruples in being take advantage of the different world crisis (in these days are dictating in Europe a seminar from three days to 1,500 Euro by head) subtracts him credibility, every time that it be compared with the wealth that accumulate. The leader is produced to give to West an aspect of modern Jesus, but inside doors he yields fervent adoration to the God of the power and of the money. that its instructors are devout of the guru that dictate the courses of completely voluntary way and that it collected is destined to charitable deeds; Nevertheless, it turns out to be easy to perceive that the combination of a labor force of low cost, more the sale of all its products with exemption tax center is used especially for investments real estate agencies everywhere, businesses of services and actions with headquarters in the India, and financing of mega-events and promotional tours by of the world, among other things. Similar volume of incomes, compared with the percentage destined to humane works is completely disproportionate: an organization with similar patrimony does not operate, exactly, to the cost. The enrichment goes exclusively to the chests of the spiritual leader, their family and their nearby circle, while instructors of long path today withdrawn agonize slowly in public hospitals in the India, abandoned by the organization to which they have devoted their lives. Know more than the rentabilísimos business of the group Ravishankar: The organization incorporated the techniques known from EST (Erhard Training) in its courses you experience them. The techniques, conveniently mixed with respiratory practices and meditation, inside a framework of humane idealism and mystical fervor, multiplied fast the number of followers and the sales volume. Subsequently the orders can be seen of Coaching Coercive (or EST or Landmark) inside the content of the courses of the Art to Live. Course Phase I The course is dictated behind closed doors in a parlor private, cut off from noises or exterior distractions. The participants should not maintain contact with the exterior world during the duration of the same one (telephones). The seats for a great physical proximity are arranged that inhibit the individual thought and reinforce the collective perception. The environmental climate, the bombardment of love and the content of the course produces a reduction of the state of warning of the participants as well as of the critical thought. It is required the assistants to perform a modification of its diets (poor in Proteins) during the course, and causes consumes them itself large quantities of mineral water during the same one. The intervals are determined in which the group will be able to go to the bath. These apparently innocent orders aim at to submit to the agency to a condicionamiento external. The overcrowding of the thought and of the biological functions is sought. The participants should appoint a companion for “to be taken care of” mutually (angelito). Of that form the organization does not need to pursue directly the participants to be assured of its assistance. It causes memorizes to the group an assembly of terms and phrases to reinforce the sense of ownership: By ej., Jai Gurudev, I belong to You, what resists, persists, etc). The respiratory techniques achieve an increment of the relaxation that obviously very well is received for the participants. In that state of relaxation and welfare returns a lot more simple to wound them to the indoctrination. They are formulated you ask ambiguous existential to favor the confusion and the change of foci (by ej., the importance to take responsibility by the commitments). Processes are carried out of highly emotional load (by ej. The play of the looks: ” If God descended in the form of the person to whom you are looking at, would accept him?” Close of the course: bombardment of affection and repetitive songs to facilitate the collective trance. Before being withdrawn, is instructed the assistants not to reveal their content to third parties; is argued that “upon being vivencial” is not possible to explain of what treats, nevertheless the objective of this argument is to do that the graduates stimulate their close people so that they hire the course. With the supervised respiration sessions to attend argument, is invited the graduates to participate weekly in encounters (Satsangs). During the encounters breathes, meditates and repetitive and monotonous phrases are sung that facilitate brief periods of trance. To the closing of the encounter the purchase is promoted of more courses, is sold merchandising, events are promoted abroad and the is invited to donate voluntary working hours. Also they are sent emails daily with reflections of the teacher and they recall the events to take place soon. Soon, the new followers are found with a new group of ownership and they begin to be separated of their emotional and family environments, besides investing sums of money in events, various articles, trips and in the form of free work. During several days and in a framework of communal life lacking of privacy, the participants are submitted to sessions that include: Physical disciplines (exercises, group tasks), Control of the biological functions (hours of dream, frequency of foods, urination, change of diet, Influence of mental processes by means of meditations guided and trances induced, Repetition of canticles by the nights repetitive canticles are carried out that induce to moments of collective trance, followed by superstitious fables on the powers “magical” of the teacher to promote the endiosamiento of the leader. The practices cause an alienation of the individual perception, enlarged by the passiveness of the vow of silence. The decrease of the psychic resistance they do that for the end of the retreat the assistants have embraced the orders of the sect. The emotional bombardment, to the closing of the encounter, on the other hand, does that any discomfort suffered be disguised and relegated to a place of the subconscious. It is submitted the contenders to various processes: I work communal, physical Fatigue, Deprivación of the dream, Wear of mind, Restrictions in the diet, Sessions of meditation/trance, Sessions of emotional rupture, (hot seat sessions), training Sessions for recruit/sell courses. In the end of each day the group gathers to celebrate the leader with canticles of adoration and collective suggestion, elevating the spirit of the followers. With this itself confine to the subcosciente any trace of emotional trauma suffered during the day. In a meeting is encouraged to the members of the group to share intimacies of its lives. By ej., a member confesses to the group that of girl he was abused by its pregnant father remaining, and an abortion was done. Later, the same group to which the member confessed his trauma he will use that information for inflingirle emotional rupture, declaring his hostility and public prison sentence: “sure that you seduced your father, sure sought him you, are a murderer of babies, did not want to take responsibility by that murder, and now want to believe you a victim” After the damage, is left upon hounding in solitude, confused and and disconcerted. This does not it want to be identified with the image that of itself that was rejected by the group, and will desire “to leave all behind and to begin again”. A similar situation to the Sindrome of Stockholm is produced. The techniques of respiration or Sudarshan Kriya very is discussed in the medical environment, and the majority has reserves on their benefits and their danger, therefore they consider it a hyperventilation. The organization answers to such questionings presenting studies carried out by doctors. Nevertheless such studies have not been validated for the world scientific community. The assistants to the courses are not evaluated clinically to rule out any effect damaging collateral.
