I was a paying member for about 20 years and received absolutely nothing, which really empowered me.

Instead, I was made weak and subservient.

I Left Jehovah's witnesses for the very same reasons I left Eckankar. Eckankar became worse than any experiences I had with the witnesses.

Studying Dianetics helped me to grasp this. The 2 systems are similar. Thus praying and paying while getting nothing for it. Self reflection with strings attached.

You can't be free if the intent is to get a high initiation in Eckankar. It requires taking on a dysfunctional persona.

The politics in Eckankar rule its decisions, beyond giving out any spiritual knowledge.

I was constantly made to be uncomfortable because Eckankar is all about conforming to beliefs, which are not true. It is made up with a whole crew of fake masters. Imagined by Paul Twitchell to satisfy his wife who wanted him to get a job.

The high initiates in Eckankar are clueless, and just lead me on a chase to grasp my own tail. They were bubbly in public but sarcastic and vicious in private against so many people inside the group and towards others.

I realized these people were not enlightened and it cost me a lot to attend meetings, buy books and year membership dues.

The weight really piled on me when I discovered the degree of their deception, knowing the teaching was made up yet continuing on with it for monetary reasons, with me paying for it! I can't get my money back because I contributed to a church.

Jehovah's witnesses to a degree had some integrity, but these people don't. Give one of them a pink piece of paper and they will believe and do anything.

Gobbledygook best sums up Eckankar but it takes years to unravel it. By that time, you are completely stewed.

I'm going to put down a blog I discovered that is more technical in terms of the law.

I'm thinking this relates to Eckankar, but you will have to read over it to understand why, and then apply it. So here it goes down below written by a person familiar with Eckankar laying out a strategy which may be used to get your money back.

ECKANKAR should be sued and shut down under the US federal 'False Claims Act' - Henosis Sage

Someone should tell these people to get real and do the job properly
- plus make a small fortune in the process

Take this current court case against Lance Armstrong: a known liar who repeatedly made false claims and gained financial advantage from the US Government because of those lies, that FRAUD.

ECKANKAR has had the advantage of Religious TAX FREE Status afforded it by the US GOVT since 1970. That status is founded entirely upon the Fraud and Lies of Twitchell, Gross and Klemp to this day.

a cpl of extracts:

"The lawsuit was filed by Armstrong's former US Postal Service teammate Floyd Landis. The federal government joined in 2013 after Armstrong publicly admitted he cheated to win the Tour de France seven times from [protected]. Armstrong was stripped of those titles and banned from competition."Armstrong has also taken huge hits financially, losing all his major sponsors and being forced to pay more than $10m in damages and settlements in a series of lawsuits. The Landis lawsuit would be the biggest by far, and the ruling from US district judge Christopher Cooper in Washington was a major setback for Armstrong with a trial most likely in the fall.

"Landis, himself a former doping cheat who was stripped of his 2006 Tour de France title, sued Armstrong under the federal False Claims Act, alleging Armstrong and his team committed fraud against the government when they cheated while riding under the Postal Service banner. According to court records, the contract paid the team, which was operated by Tailwind Sports Corp, about $32m from 2000 to 2004. Armstrong got nearly $13.5m."The law allows Landis and the government to sue to get that money back and for "treble" damages, or triple the amount, and Armstrong could be forced to pay all of it. Landis stands to receive up to 25% of any damages awarded."

The False Claims Act (31 U.S. C. §§ [protected], also called the"Lincoln Law") is an American federal law that imposes liability on persons and companies (typically federal contractors) who defraud governmental programs.

It is the federal Government's primary litigation tool in combating fraud against the Government.[1]

The law includes a qui tam provision that allows people who are not affiliated with the government, called"relators"under the law, to file actions on behalf of the government (informally called"whistleblowing" especially when the relator is employed by the organization accused in the suit). Persons filing under the Act stand to receive a portion (usually about 15-25 percent) of any recovered damages.

As of 2012, over 70 percent of all federal Government FCA actions were initiated by whistleblowers.

Claims under the law have typically involved health care, military, or other government spending programs, and dominate the list of the largest pharmaceutical settlements.

The government recovered $38.9 billion under the False Claims Act between 1987 and 2013 and of this amount, $27.2 billion or 70% was from qui tam cases brought by relators.

31 U.S. Code § 3729 - False claims

In other words Eckankar is listed as a tax-exempt religion but knowingly being informed and then continuing on with their enterprise when they know they are peddling falsehoods to the public dating back for decades and asking for paid donations for their products using their status as tax-exempt to hold back a charge on their services to themselves, that they would normally owe as tax to the IRS.

    Looking over the entire slew of comments made by people about Eckankar still does not change the fact that its teachings are useful and gives insight to solve hard problems. Look at the censorship in an ever growing decent down of the human race. Look at right being taken away under the noses of the supposed free. You all need Eckankar, not the religion, the teachings. When everyone has been silenced, when big brother is in your living rooms and watching your every move; you could appreciate a soul center, not touched by this enslavement. And it’s going to get worse. Masters are masters and they are real but you can only make contact with them from within your self. It’s not made up, it may be in the future an act of desperation. Think about it. Dog the religion if you must, as its had some bad ups and downs. But don’t dog the teachings that can help you ride out of enslavement.
