At what point did they tell you that to be in sahaja yoga (or the 'awakend state' as they call it), you will:
Worship Mrs. S as God,
- IN ENGLAND WE DO NOT TELL PEOPLE WHO WE BELIEVE MOTHER IS, as MOST OF THEM FORM THEIR OWN CONCLUSIONS FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCES
Do everything that she says,
THIS IS THE GURU/DISCIPLE RELATIONSHIP FROM DAYS OF YORE
You are possessed by negativity and/or bhoots (evil spirits) if you disagree with her,
> - I DON'T THINK THESE ACCUSATIONS OCCUR THESE DAYS, BUT IT HAS HAPPENED MANY YEARS AGO
No dating or pre-marital sex allowed,
- MANY OF OUR PARENTS HAVE ALSO ADVISED US THUS
Get an arranged marriage in sy,
- DEFINITELY NOT A "MUST" I KNOW OF MANY WHO HAVE CHOSEN THEIR OWN PARTNERS, BOTH IN EUROPE AND THE USA. ALSO, IT IS INVIVIDUALS WHO, BECAUSE THEY BELIEVE IN THEIR GURU, ASK HER/HIM TO SELECT THE BEST "SPIRITUAL" MATCH FOR THEM.
Send any children of that marriage to far awayplaces for school, - ALSO NOT INSISTED UPON. MANY YOGIS DO NOT SEND THEIR CHILDREN AWAY
Pour milk, honey, sugar, yoghurt, & butter on her feet and then drink it,
- IN THE PAST FEW YEARS WE HAVE ONLY SEEN THIS DONE WITH HER HANDS. YOGIS BELIEVE IT IS VIBRATED BY HER HANDS.A FAIR NUMBER DO NOT DRINK THIS, AND ARE DEFINITELY NOT FORCED TO. IN INDIA THEY POUR THESE SUBSTANCES ON DIRTY STATUES AND THE LOCAL POPULACE DRINKS IT GLADLY - ANOTHER TRADITION THERE.
Spend thousands of dollars attending pujas in far away places,
- YES, JUST LIKE SOME VISIT LOURDES BECAUSE OF THEIR BELIEFS, SYs ATTEND PUJAS TO GROW SPIRITUALLY - AND ARE WILLING TO SPEND FOR THIS AS OTHERS DO FOR THEIR BELIEFS.
and, if you dare to criticise, investigate, or write about her in this forum, Jesus Christ will not ever forgive you and will send you straight to hell.
- WE KNOW FROM OUR BIBLICAL STUDIES THAT CHRIST HAS INDICATED THAT A SIN AGAINST THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. SINCE SYs BELIEVE THAT SM IS THE INCARNATION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, ... IT FOLLOWS.

You are desperately trying to justify all the inconsistencies of the cult Vishwa Nirmala Dharma, and we know how you feel, because we tried to do the same for years, until the Adult in us had to admit that things did not add up. You know the saying: growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional...
