There is a history to Heehs' misconduct

from auroman de le Miroir to "Tusar N. Mohapatra" tusarnmohapatra@gmail.com date 29 July 2010 18:35 subject My next response to Dr Raghu

I have no particular desire to "hide" under a pseudonym. It is just that I eschew publicity in general but if this matter require disclosure, then I will do so in the near future.

I find it strange that you take offense at attacks on Heehs even while you are subtly engaged in personal attacks on my character. In the span of a few sentences, you accuse me of  "waffling opportunism", being "mean-spirited", "being in the "intermediate zone" despite the fact that you don't even know who I am!!  In any case, I don't care give a damn what you think of me.

As regards Peter Heehs, it is more than a book. There is a history to this man's misconduct and it is quite possible that what seems like an overreaction might turn out to be the right reaction.  There have been people who were asked by the Mother to leave the Ashram. Time will tell who is on the right side.  All human judgements are flawed because they are based on one's own upbringing and therefore necessarily partial.

I have no further desire to discuss anything with Dr Thill Raghu right now.

    What precisely is this history of "misconduct" to which you allude?

  2. Anonymous, I suppose it must involve things like publicizing someone else's profession and location while concealing even one's real name, indulging in personal attacks and calumny while resenting them when they recoil on oneself, making allegations without evidence, and last, but not least, a refusal to look at the mirror! (I am being ironical!) LOL

  3. "As regards Peter Heehs, it is more than a book. There is a history to this man's misconduct and it is quite possible that what seems like an overreaction might turn out to be the right reaction."

    Any allegation of misconduct unsupported by evidence probably springs from malice and jealousy rather than truth.

    "There have been people who were asked by the Mother to leave the Ashram. Time will tell who is on the right side. All human judgements are flawed because they are based on one's own upbringing and therefore necessarily partial."

    All this is very curious. If human judgments are flawed, then we can't be so sure that Heehs has engaged in misconduct, especially in the absence of any evidence. And to call for his expulsion while standing on such thin ice then becomes a glaring example of flawed and foolish judgment!

    Still waiting for some solid evidence (as opposed to mere rhetoric) with respect to Heeh's history of misconduct.
