The Sahaj Marg Project (Welcome)

Officially, the spiritual teaching called Sahaj Marg, that is based on "heart to heart spiritual transmission", antique knowledge of India but lost for centuries, was re-discovered by Ram Chandra of Fatehgarh. Also known as Lalaji, this Master of the Naqshbandiya Sufi Order, is therefore considered the first Master of a new spiritual lineage by the adherents of Sahaj Marg and the Shri Ram Chandra Mission.

Ram Chandra of Shahjahanpur, also known as Babuji, claims to have met Lalaji a few times in his late teens and early twenties, and to have become a disciple.

Then in 1945, thirteen (13) years after the death of Lalaji in 1931, Babuji founded the Shri Ram Chandra Mission in honour of his Master, Lalaji, and claims to have been charged in a dream (meditation) state, with spreading this teaching throughout the world. Babuji called his "new religion", Sahaj Marg, or the "easy path" (now called the "Natural Path"), as apparently instructed in a dream (meditation) state.

At Babuji's death in 1983, Shri Parthasarathi Rajagopalachari, more commonly known as Chariji, allegedly succeeded him. Chari claimed that his personal mission, assigned to him by his master before his death, was to have the SRCM shine throughout the world.

This is the condensed official story presenting the origins of the Sahaj Marg and the SRCM.
The true story is very different.

The French parliamentary report on "harmful sects" n°2468 of December 1995 (French version), (English version) named this organization (Shri Ram Chandra Mission-SRCM) in its exhaustive and controversial list of "harmful sects" that included some spiritual movements operating in Europe at that time. The Belgian government has now done the same at its Centre for Information and Advice on (Organizations deemed) Harmful Sects (CIAOSN) where books by Babuji and Chari are listed.

The reality is very complex. Sahaj Marg, this so-called "religious" movement and/or "spiritual tradition" (as called in the "Autobiography of Ram Chandra", the Founder) nevertheless shows, after a few decades in existence, many signs of drifting towards spiritualism (see their fund-raiser book: Whispers from the Brighter World which is channelled from various deceased spirits through a French medium), and the Cult of a Personality (the Guru and/or the "Special Personality" who is believed to be Babuji with Chari as his "successor" according to SRCM (Chennai"). The apocalyptic urgency and businesslike evangelical proselytism are some of the new features that appeared in the movement during the last 20 years, under the impulsion of Chari, guided by his messianic mission and promise to his master that the SRCM would shine throughout the world.


The presentation will be articulated around 5 topics:

1. The True History of Sahaj Marg

Officially, Chari succeeded Babuji who succeeded Lalaji. They are the 3 Masters of Sahaj Marg according to SRCM (Chennai), the Chari faction. Actually, Lalaji gave birth to an abundance of hindu and/or Sufi movements. Babuji's succession to Lalaji is still bitterly disputed today. And there are at least 2 Shri RAM Chandra Mission(s) disputing the ownership of the Mission in the Supreme Court of India. Then came the schism of Dr Varadachari's son, K.C. Narayana and the creation of the Institute of Ram Chandra Consciousness (ISRC), which is operating with Ram Chandra of Shahjahanpur (Babuji) as the only and eternal Master. Dr. Varadachari, a professor of philosophy and a friend of Babuji, was the "guru in waiting" before the appearance of Chari on the scene. (more…)

2. The Importance of Sahaj Marg

The actual strength of SRCM is a subject of perpetual speculation. It is difficult to identify what is false! Nevertheless, the growth, even if it tends to slow down, has been very important, it is undeniable. And if India constitutes the bulk of followers of Sahaj Marg, there are many groups in Western Europe and North America. Where will the SRCM operate tomorrow is another story? (more…)

3. A Complex Organization
(Last update: December 18, 2007)

Originally, it was the master and his disciples. When the number of disciples multiplied, the teacher needed relays, the preceptor. It was the spiritual organization, but with growth there comes a time when it has to be structured. The administrative and financial management become involved. That is what happened to the SRCM, where these different organizational levels coexist more or less segregated.

In essence, it could be said that the pyramid of power revolves around the spiritual organization, Sahaj Marg, while the administrative management of this gigantic structure is the SRCM, financial management is with the foundation SMSF. Obviously, Chari dominates everything. (more)

4. A Frenetic Proselytism
(Last up-date: Feb. 11, 2008)

Adepts of Sahaj Marg are fragile personalities, who live in a dehumanized society. Chari never ceases to move the track wherever they take refuge, galvanizing his troops, guilting the preceptors because of their lack of results. First drawn by the clientelle of the "psy's", his methods of recruiting are refine and he is now in search of recognition and respectability through the establishment of windows to the outside world.


5. Financials of Sahaj Marg

Participation is free: this is the message stressed at all times by the Shri Ram Chandra Mission. Indeed, to begin to meditate with Sahaj Marg requires no expenditure, no commitment. To continue "Freely" (without costs) on this path becomes much more difficult. First, it encourages you to buy the books of Master Chari, and particularly "My Master" to better understand his thinking. Then they encourage you to contribute to the association to become a member. Anyway, if you want to meet the teacher - which is highly recommended - you have to participate in international seminars of SRCM ®. To do this, you must have an identity card made by SRCM International, which implies that you are already a member in your country of residence, and that you are up to date on your contribution to your national association…

Without really noticing, you just took your very first step down the slippery slope of the vast machine of the financial SRCM ®! Do not worry, it will never let go you…(more…)


Adepts of Sahaj Marg


1. The Profile Of The Abhyasis

A psychiatrist, a prominent preceptor of Sahaj Marg, summarizes the main characteristics of the abhyasis: almost three quarters are women, with a maximum between 35 and 50 years, an over-representation of health care workers, teachers and artists. Many are in a "mid-life" crisis, are unstructured (borderline) personalities, or have already undergone some form of psychotherapy. (more)

Hi Puneet...

I agree with you, but I would add, that the Panel must be "multi-denominational" such as was done by Lalaji's Master, Hujur. That panel found that "Lalaji was an "exact copy" of his Master, not that he, nor his Master were "divine" of "represented the divine". The Political and the Spiritual aspects of religions, spiritual movements and cults should be seperate much as democratic society has attempted to keep the estates (four or five estates) seperate so as to avoid the attractions of "MEGA POWER", being centralized in one person.

The ideas of the Christian Reformation that took place in the Holy Roman Catholic Church (Martin Luther, Calvin, etc..) by the "Protestants" removed the political power of the Pope but still retained his "spiritual" power (from Christ, the true Master, according the the NEW and REFORMED Catholic Church) The Spiritual movement should take example.

That Protestant reformation freed the scientific and academic communities to then harbour the 'AGE of REASON" that brought us our modern civilization with all its "human rights" for "individuals"...

The POPE can speak all he wants about "homosexuality" and rights of women, etc... All know that it's the cardinals and the bishops who are the "power bodies", have to be convinced of these "human rights" not the POPE. The political power on the Vatican rests with those bodies.

Religions as well as spiritual movements will be forced (not requested) , thanks to the "information revolution", to respond the the "spiritual cry" of the population or be placed on the "dust pile" of history as cults of Personalities of 'meganomaniacs" who still use the mechanism of "temptation and fear" and who's leaders or Master are still addicted to POWER and the MATERIAL.

Thanks for your comments...

LET THERE BE A FORUM OF SPIRITUAL ENHANCEMENT WHERE EACH FORUM SEND A SPEAKER EACH IN A NATIONAL ANNUAL MEET AND EVERY ONE PRESENT POSTERS OR PAPER OR TALK OR MOVIE OR DOCUMENTARY ETC AS PER CATEGORY FOR A RECOMMENDED TIME FRAME .THEN AT THE END ALL MATERIALS IS PUBLISHED AS A PROCEEDING BOOKLET.WE MUST USE POWERPOINT PRESENTATIONS / VIDEOS / CARTOON MOVIES / YOU TUBE / FACE BOOK / ETC TO PROPAGATE AND MAKE SPIRITUAL LEARNING AN ONGOING PROCESS RATHER THEN A HISTORICAL EVENT OF 2000 BC.WE MUST INTEGRATE INTERNATIONAL VIEWERSHIP.WE CAN HAVE A SPIRITUAL STORY / CARTOON MOVIE COMPETITION OF NATIONAL LEVEL ETC AND PEOPLE GIVEN APPROPIATE AWARDS (SAY IN LACS BY VARIOUS TRUSTS ) TO PROMOTE WISDOM AND SPIRITUALITY TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT IT STILL PAYS TO BE SPIRITUAL
I SHALL BE VERY HAPPY TO SEE A 3D CARTOON WALT DISNEY MOVIE ON THE "EVE OF HANDLING WISDOM TO PUTHULAL" NARRATING HOW A SAMARTH GURU (HUZUR MAHARAJ)HANDS OVER WISDOM TO THE NEXT SAMARTH ONE (LALAJI MAHARAJ)THIS CAN BE VERY SIMILAR TO AS SHOWN IN "AKBAR JODHA" THE SUFI ENLIGHTENMENT OF AKBAR THE GREAT.

Hi Puneet...

If you use only one font (capitals), then there is no "accent" or to add "tone" in your comment and that makes your comments "monofont" or "monotone". The protocol on-line are that capitals are for "shouting" or "yelling" but I don't adhere to that protocel... I use capitals for ACCENT... ;-)) and the smiling face for "humour"...

Could you please add "tone" or "accents" to your comments for the sake of keeping the reader interest. If you use the words of others (cite or quote), please place them in "" (Quotations) or in "italics" ...Thanks...

Your idea sounds like a good one to "unite" religions and has probably been used by many. In Religious terms that is called "ecumenism" or attempting to unite various religions. It is also a way for "new religions" such as "Sahaj Marg" to gain "credibility" and status...

It does not address the "lineage" of GURUS or Masters issue.

The prize for Sprituality is odd...sort of like a "oscar award" of the Movie industry. A prize of the Material for "intellectual" and scientific achevement is the "nobel" and other various PRIZES of MATERIAL... The Prize for Sprituality should be SPIRITUAL not MATTER ...what is that? In Christianity, that is "heaven"... IN Sahaj Marg, the "Brighter World", or "LIBERATION" from being born again to the MATERIAL world...

I think more thought has to be given to this...

Thanks for your comments.

Why do you have to knock a spritual organisation that has brought about transformation in so many people without asking for anything in return. I have practised this system for 9 years, and have never been asked or felt pressure to make a donation. It goes well beyond money.

4d-Don said...

As with the Catholic Church, while many "holy women" were praying to a statue or a crucifix in the front of the altar, behind the altar, the priests were molesting their young boys.

Opiates have a property of satisfying some while destroying others. The philosophical question is: "Would you rather be Plato or a "contented pig"? Some "pigs" chose the latter and hide their face in their opiatic SOP and are relatively "happy". They must have been really "miserable" before and really "co-dependents".

Some others see the sop for what it is and leave and the more "spiritual" try and alert others to the abuses of morality and ethics which to most should reflect a lack of SPIRITUALITY, but to some does not. they don't care about the "re-registering" of a society in another country or an invasion of an Ashram with "violence". They can belong to the MAFIA and claim to be "HAPPY" and "ENLIGHTENED" and CONNECTED to GOD. The Mafia have always been "catholic" and support the Churches as a matter of course.

If you are happy, continue and get your daily "ritualistic" fix (as with drugs) from your magical "transmission" and your weekly fix from your "Preceptor" and but you are an addict and you do have daily and weekly RITUALS to perform or you will lose your "illusion" of happiness, just like the "catholics" and the other "addicts" to illusions and fantasies. If Sahaj Marg was SPIRITUALITY, as Raja Yoga teaches, it would come from the SPIRIT inside you, not from another person ...No Masters in Raja Yoga. It is a system. Sahaj Marg is the cult of a PERSON!! A SAVIOUR! A MESSIAH! Not SPIRIT-uality....

You are being fed a "bill of goods". To need to see another person so as to be "happy", will build a reliance on that person and you will find that you are not in the SPIRIT but in an addiction and have become "co-dependent" on your Master, his desires (mission), and his lieutenants who feed you your weekly "fix". All for Free you think? No you will bring others to addict them also and then the SYSTEM will Prosper...

Don't worry, they will find you a "mate"... in the Mafia, it's called the "buddy system". One watches the other and "turns them in" for intervention if they go off the path.

Sound familiar?

All,

It is for each individual to have belief / faith I think. I have practised different systems of meditation and have met many Guru's in India. I have experienced vibration while meeting other Guru's.

It was no different when I met the current Guru of the system. I could feel the vibration when I went to him and recede as I went away. Such experiences are very common in all Guru disciple relationship in many systems in the East. But what amazes me is in this system is that when I sit for meditation anywhere, anytime I can feel the vibration which is very unique and I have not experienced this anywhere else.

For me, it is direct perception and I follow my heart.

Organizational problems are there in even the smallest of the organizations and I can't let them interfere with my spiritual growth.

Don,

Interesting to note your comment on the 'spirit' inside. It is a very rare for a person to establish direct contact with God.
You could have that condition but in eastern countries (mainly India, China) it is very common for people to get associated with Guru's to take their help. Its true that some are misguided but some have found guidance and it comes from faith which is a very difficult topic to discuss. The main question is how far can we go with 'faith' in something and it doesn't have an answer. All I can say is that we need to have faith in ourselves. I personally believe that even God can't interfere with any individual's free will so it is for each individual to utilize his time properly and grow.

4d-Don said...

Hi Max...

You say: It is a very rare for a person to establish direct contact with God.I would say that it is very rare for a person who follows a GURU to establish direct contact with anyone except the GURU... certainly not with GOD any more that someone who goes inside and "contacts" the spirit in all of us...

The ONE is Everywhere, Everywhen, and Everytime (the E-Trinity)... It is so counter intuitive to go to Matter (a person) to meet a SPIRIT when the closest SPIRIT to one is INSIDE...

If one has a guide, the guide takes us to a specific place and then we pay the guide and we "control our own life"... The relationship with the GURU as in Sahaj marg is one of surrendering one's LIFE and DEATH and becoming a LIVING DEAD.... that is not only a GUIDE or a true TEACHER or GURU, but and IDOL, a tyrant, an autocrat who controls the life of the "serf" as the Masters of Sahaj Marg call their "disciples"...

This is not Raja Yoga, not healthy and not very enlightened and certainly not NATURAL... The Cedar does not become a "maple" so as to become "LIBERATED" from its "cedarness"... That is not Sprituality but a "scam". It is asking the "mark" or the "john" to agree to something that is "impossible" and hence will remain dependent on the MASTER for LIFE...

IT is a SCAM...

Don...

Max said...

Hi Don,

What you say about the soul or spirit is absolutely fine. But about the Guru - I think it is a cultural thing. In east it is very common to have Guru's.As I said, it is a matter of faith and it is a difficult topic. You have said that the Master is 'Autocratic' and 'tyrant'. I don't know why you say that.

In any relationship, whether it be a blood (father / son, brothers) or a husband/wife relationship or even in friendship, there is some faith involved. As I said I followed my heart based on my experiences.

When you question the Master , you do it based on your experience.

I have experienced some changes in my life and my heart says that "this is the effect of the practice and the Guru that you have followed."

It finally boils down to which among the two of us is right.

I can't refute the fact that you have had bad experiences with the Guru and you certainly can't refute the fact that the changes that I have found in me are the result of association with the Master.

So, am I right in saying that people shoul practice and decide on whether it is beneficial to them ?

Max

4d-Don said...

Hi Max...

Yes you are correct in stating that we should leave the choice to the individual... not to the GUIDE or the TEACHER! or even to a "Life and Death" MASTER as if we were "dogs" or "pets" or "serfs" as they call the disciple in Sahaj Marg (SRCM California-1997)

On this site, I warn people about the dangers of chosing a "teacher" (guru), without checking him/her out "constantly" as Babuji said. He also said that it is better to have no Guru than a Bad Guru...

When I was in the Catholic church, not all the altar boys were abused, just the "gentle, humble, meek, the better ones" who were also marginalized by the "group" for one reason or another, (be it social class, interests, etc...). The "obedience" of School, and the "LOVE" of Religion are too much POWER in the hands of "untrained" teachers Gurus, Preceptors, the PYRAMID) .

Most of the Masters or GURUS that I have met, are either "businessmen" or "bureacrats" without any training in philosophy, psychology, theology, etc...(or the humanities) except for the "ruthless" lack of, or Machievellian philosophy of the marketplace..."THE STRONG SURVIVE", "OPPORTUNISM" is a virtue, more is better, numbers are might, etc ... etc... and the Chari-ism of "if you can't convince your family to join Sahaj Marg, then you are not a good abhyasis" (not a direct quote) ...

Some found some good in the Catholic Church but I find it impossible to accept that did they found more GOD than the "Hindus, the Protestants, the Buddhists"?? I don't think so anyway ... They found more of the POPE, the Church, the Catholic Church... and if that satisfied them, then that is their "opinion" and that is their right ... I speak from my experience and of my opinion.

If the ONE (What Chari teaches is the Male GOD) is so "sectarian", IT is not the ONE I communicate with. The more I get involved with GROUPS, the more I lose my "god-given" ability to communicate with the ONE and the ALL (ITS CREATION) DIRECTLY ...

Likewise, the more I get involved with one GROUP, the less I can communicate and accept and even tolerate, let alone respect, member of other groups. Every Religion claims to the "UNIQUE" and the "ONLY ONE"... even Sahaj Marg. Most religious groups are always "proselytizing" as they claim to not do so ... They "bad-mouth" and insult and lie about others and attempt to grow their "business" at the cost of the "troubled sheep" of other religions.

GO to the ONE...

Every Girl (or boy) you meet will not necessarily be the ONLY one for you... The same with a GUIDE ... If one accepts that someone else (a guide or a teacher) will chose one's MATE (Wife, husband), and our friends, and family, then one has lost some of the ability to do so by one's self ... and one is not the MASTER in one's own LIFE... How can one then teach that to OTHERS? They Can't... they will teach to become a "serf of a MASTER"... not to become the MASTER of one's life.

The same with a GUIDE... One does not "bow down" to a GUIDE and dedicate one's life to "OBEY" the GUIDE or constantly remember HIM ... The guide then has become a "LIABILITY" and there is a cost to that LIABILITY ... YOU WILL HAVE TO SUPPORT HIM, pay his travelling expenses, etc (him and his "inner circle" and his lawyers, etc..) ... Is that not creating an "autocrat" and a tyrant in one's LIFE? that Master will become more IMPORTANT than your family, friends, society... Is that not a autocrat and a TYRANT... or did you do that by yourself? I think that guide has become a TYRANT and an autocrat and that such a disciple (slave or serf) is now "disempowered" and is in a co-depencent relationship, in his own life ....

The Master needs (desires) the NUMBERS and the NUMBERS need (desire) the MASTER... IT ain't NATURAL and it ain't HEALTHY...

4d-Don said...

Hi Surrinder...

The Mafia donates extensively to the Catholic Church.

The Nazi Party (1940's) made many donations to the poor and helped many Germans in need...

Most groups who want to clean their image do the same... But we still can point at the "hypocrisy" of some as they preach "no racism" and yet practice it. They (Chari of Sahaj Marg(tm)) preach tolerance and yet are intolerant of "homosexuals" and even of those such as the POPE and Bill Gates whom Chari calls: "moral degradation", because one prays for AIDS sufferers, and the other donates some of his money to help "aids sufferers"...

To help some of their people (and some sell-outs from other nations) while defecating (shitting) on others, their religions, their life-styles, their culture, their national traits, and then deceitfully cloaking themselves in the UN flag as they dishonour themselves by not supporting and endorsing the goals of the UN DPI program, is below contempt ...

Join a real "spiritual" group and you will not find such hypocrisy ...
Just because you benefit from the "charity" dollars meant for the "POOR and the NEEDY" which Chari sucks from our countries as a tax-exempt charity, does not make you or Sahaj Marg(tm) a "good citizen" ...

Do you notice that we don't attack some other religious leaders or their CHARITIES, such as the "Dalai Lama"?? Maybe because he has only "one face" and does not speak from both sides of his mouth.

He (Dalai Lama) does not use violence on his own people as some other "dictators" we know (Libya) ... and some of the corrupt people who profiteered from his (Libya) "dictatorship" endorse him also and are willing to kill their "brothers and sisters" and they LOVE HIM ... sort of like the allegations brought against Chari and SRCM(California-1997) and Sahaj Marg(tm) by many old preceptors, loyal to Babuji ... TM means trade marked for TRADE and COMMERCE... not for SPIRIT-uality...

WAKE UP and see the whole picture... think of your global brothers and sisters not just your country ... Ask questions IF YOU DARE!! Don't just be a "nationalist" and an "Imperialist" but a good "GLOBAL" citizen.

Don.

@ 4d-Don

see unless u have a taste of something u cannot know what it is..
first practice the system then you may talk about it..
its any kids job with a computer and internet connection to type comments!

and very easy to speak bad of something than good of something!
so better first understand the system than go into the money it is earning . the money is voluntary donation by the followers who are never forced to give money. and they maintain records of every penny used. people are not fools to just blindly follow the system and rather think like you!

and to know the organisational structure hmmmmm u should really get involved into the system and how work flow continues...

4d-Don said...

Hi SMEC...

Like your ilk, you don't know what you talk about, and you also don't know what SRCM (California-1997) talks about.

If you don't want to have others bad-mouth you and your group, then you, your Leader and your "directors' should not bad-mouth other cultures, other religions, other nationalities, and minority groups. I speak about "HOMOSEXUALS, LESBIANS, TRANS-GENDERS" and those who are of darker "skin complexion, height, cut"...

I also speak (quoting Chari) about other religions which you insult and state that they promote violence and war. Chari states that Christian priests can't forgive sins, but Chari and Sahaj Marg(tm) can erase samskaras ...

If the money SRCM gets from other countries as "charity" is actually used for charity, then show their statements, and then show how the "private school" for the Well-to-do in India was funded?? From our Charity dollars?? Meant to help the POOR?? Look at the back of you "food receipts" at your concessions...It states "Donation"... that is dishonest.... Pay your taxes like a good "citizen"...

I was an abhyasi in Sahaj Marg and left when Chari took over and Sahaja Marga (the easy path) became "Sahaj Marg(tm)" (the Natural path) trade marked for trade and commerce... much as Dr. Varadachari, the philosopher and friend of Babuji warned before he "also" died. SRCM(California-1997) is Corrupt and hypocritical.

Read (Chari's speeches and your own literature) a bit (if you can read) and don't just OBEY ... Use that GREY MATTER between your ears which ONE (what you call god), meant for you to use for THINKING.... The heart is a PUMP for blood, and will not think for you, no matter how much you pray or meditate. Sahaj Marg "directors" don't want the abhyasis to use their HEADS!! It's dangerous for the "bottom line".

Welcome to the NEW WORLD ORDER... your emperor has no clothes and you want those who expose his nakedness to shut up...

Well, we won't...

Hi Anant...

I am already home... my home is not in the realm of "SPIRITISM" or "SPIRITUALISM"... but in true SPIRITUALITY

I commune with ONE in all TIMES... I do not waste my time with spirits of the dead and mediums, specially not anonymous ladies (and un-professional) mediums from France.

My communions with ONE are not whispers...

They are not "light" which we now know is simply the equivalent of MATTER... according to Einstein.

So find yourself and your ONE-ness and you will see that I am there also ... That is my home and it is also yours and all the "spiritual" adherents of this world, past present and future..

Don't become so arrogant that you think that your cult of a person is the "ONLY" path to ONE-ness...

Don...

4d-Don said...

To all...

The "spirits" of spiritism and/or spiritualism (lower case) - is plural (s) which is meant to indicate many "spirits")... NOT ONE!

SPIRIT of "spirituality" (with UPPER case letters) means or indicates that SPIRIT (not "the" spirit or "a" spirit), is ONE... hence SPIRIT of SPIRITUALITY is ONE

Be Spiritual, not spiritist (in Europe??) or spiritualist ... with mediums, channeling and messages from the dead, etc... ... that is a SCAM!!

Don...
