At that time, I was very happy thinking that, since now science validates Indian wisdom, the knowledge of all of us being connected surely will trickle down to the common man.
I was wrong. Today, almost 40 years later, India has been completely cut out in Wikipedia’s entry on transpersonal psychology. New age, too, has been disconnected from India. It is revealing how Wikipedia’s piece on transpersonal psychology ends:
“…transpersonal psychology has been criticized by some Christian authors as being a mishmash of New Age ideas that offer an alternative faith system to vulnerable youths who turn their backs on organized religion.”
Those Christian authors are not interested to find out, if there is indeed a transpersonal dimension to our existence, but fear, even more youth could leave the Church if they come to know about it…"
- Maria Writh
You would think this situation could be a one off… but when you do a little research something more sinister appears. Any spiritual minority or movement promoting Santana Dharma (eternal way of righteous living) will encounter opposition from the church-media-anti-cult nexus who work in cahoots to carry out the church’s agenda of keeping people under their dogmatic control.
What if the mass media would cover the truth of the widespread scandals and abuse of the sickest kind in the Christian and Catholic churches? And why aren’t they bar a few articles here and there?
