Sri Kalki Bhagavan / Sri Bhagavan
a few anti-links

And more will probably be coming.

Many gurus have detractors, and thus far Sri KB does not have an inordinate number, nor any specific "proven" criminal dirt against him. Nevertheless, i am devoting some –ve attention to him, as he has come to loom fairly large in the current spiritual scene and his well-oiled money machine needs to be considered. Eyebrows are raised at the enormous bucks charged for 21-day enlightenment courses (guaranteed, with after-the-fact exceptions and reservations), and for private darshans with Kalkiji and wife Amma, as well as the enormous trust funds controlled by family members, etc.

Many long-time seekers are appalled by this charging of big money for "spiritual services." And many others are apparently content to throw this money at him, as his empire expands exponentially. Caveat emptor indeed. Stay tuned.

A correspondent has recently reminded me of his shifting sites, names and offerings. All have changed or "evolved" over the years. Originally i was happy to give him the benefit of the doubt, though his "world transformation" was taking some time and sites kept shifting. Now a name change to a simpler Sri Bhagavan, and offerings are no longer "Deeksha" but "Oneness Blessing." These shiftings can also be called shiftiness, as one has to stay one step of the Spiritual Consumer Protection Branch, as well as offer something fresh
