The point you are missing is that true teaching is individual. Master did indeed tell different people different things.

It's up to the individual disciple to discern what Master is telling him or her. My relationship is to Master, not to ANY organization. THAT is what he was telling Peggy Dietz. My point wasn't that therefore everyone should initiate others into Kriya. But that people should follow the Master, not the organization.

If you rely entirely on an organization to tell YOU what MASTER wants YOU to do, then you will NEVER develop your own relationship with the Guru. And you will never develop your intuition.

Our Master never intended for the organization to replace the Guru. The comparison by Bill showing how SRF deleted Lahiri Mahasaya five times and replaced our Paramguru's name with the name of the organization is both telling, and chilling.

I'm not telling anyone that they shouldn't follow the organization. I do respect the right of people to practice discipleship as they see it. But I will defend strongly and patiently the right of devotees to follow our Master, and not the organization.

This includes the right to publish the public domain works of our Guru, the right to teach in his name, the right to call themselves a disciple- even if it doesn't meet your narrow definition of what a disciple is.
