I would have bought some of the books published by the Sanskrit Classics, but I was turned off by the advertising-pushy campaings on the web.
Then later on I heard negative comments about their transliterations of Sri Mahasaya and negative connotations coming from different individuals. A disciple of the lawyer swami used to spamm the boards and newsgrooups claimimg the legitimacy of their Guru and how great he was etc.
That really turned me off altogether. A real Baba does not put down even their own enemies. That sort of thing casted doubts in my mind.
I also did not get good vibes out of the pictures of a yogi meditating in a cave.

Thumb of rule for me: The minute you see someone claiming to the World that he/ she met Babaji and such.. run away.

Being intellectual gifted is not a sign of true spiritual progress.
