I too have noticed that there are some who seem so upset with SRF that they might have gone overboard in their critique of the organization.

But on the whole it seems to me at least that most of the people are sincerely trying to deal with issues-which not being on the inside as a monastic-that they feel will hurt Master's organization in the long run.

When 30 monastics this year leave it makes one wonder what's going on. As someone there put it, 'they left not because of 'worldly desires' but because they'd determined that staying in the ashram would keep them from finding God.' Pretty harsh stuff, yes, but if true it certainly is a damaging insight for those who believe all is bliss and love 24/7.

We just gotta keep the faith and like you said try to draw closer through meditation, kriya etc. to the Founder who I believe still exerts a guiding spirit.

With best regards,
Bill
