The verifiable facts you claim to stick with are only circumstantial and are based on your own limited understanding of spiritual concepts and principles. Your whole attitude is based on judgement and condemnation.

Nonsense! There are certainly objective facts which can be stated and which hold true in the material world, which is the only one given to objective verification. For example it is a fact that Paulsen has distorted the Kriya Yoga he learned from Yogananda and teaches something different which he calls "The Rainbow Technique" This is the type of fact that anyone thinking of investigating Paulsen's teachings should know. For example it is a fact that Paulsen spent only a short time as a monastic before running away and becoming an alcoholic. It is a fact that Paulsen's belief system includes a number of matters not taught by Yogananda or any other Kriya lineage. It is a fact that Paulsen claims to have taken a trip to the moons of Jupiter on an alien spaceship etc. These are all things which anyone thinking of becoming one of his followers should be aware of.

You would do well to keep in mind that "boasting" refers to a mental attitude but you seem to apply that label to anything one shares about ones experience or understanding. This is after all the purpose of Kriya discussion boards so maybe you are the one being a hypocrite after all.

No Andre, that is certainly not the purpose of this discussion board. It is not here for people to boast of their supposed spiritual experiences. These are personal matters which should not be publically promoted without a very good reason.

You're good at quoting the shoulds and should nots of sadhana spoken by great masters when it suits your purpose. I could find dozens of similar reproaches to the things you say and post as well if I was of pedantic persuasion.

But you have not been able to do so. I doubt that you could find any credible Kriya authority which encouraged boasting about supposed spiritual experience to others.
