Our gnostic disciples must be very careful with impostors. In Colombia, South America, in 1956, the leader of the ancient Rosicross Order alleged that some man named Bhekpati Sinha was a great master from India, a disciple of Gandhi, and thousands of more falsities of the sort. At that time, all of the spiritualists from Colombia kneeled before this gentleman, and a fanatic from the city of Cali, Colombia was even eating the leftovers of the food that this gentleman ate. Fortunately, intelligent people are never missing from the picture; thus, it occurred to one of our disciples to ask the adorable impostor for his address in India. So, the impostor gave him the address of Yogi Sivananda.

There is a common saying that states: “The lies of a charlatan fall faster than the speed of gravity.”

So, the answer (which I hold in my archives) of the letter our student sent to that address, states the following:

Dr. Kattan Umaña Tamines. Cali, Colombia, S. A.

Adorable and immortal Being,

Greetings and adorations,

Regarding your amiable letter and attachment, through this we inform to your goodness that the gentleman Bhekpati Sinha, mentioned in your letter, does not have any connection with the activities of the Divine Life Society whatsoever and he is completely unknown to me. The world is sufficiently broad in order to contain all types of people. The intelligent or wise has to discriminate within and advance by himself towards his own goal, his own self, while also searching for the emancipation of others.

The Spiritual Path is precisely called “The Path of the Razor’s Age” which is filled with obstacles within and without. Enter into the silence of your own heart and incarnate the Silent One, the Innermost.

May the Almighty One bless all of you with peace, good tidings and supreme beatitude; with my considerations and mediation in OM.

Yours, Sivananda

Thus, we ask, where were the marvelous faculties of such a Rosicrucian leader? Can such blind people be confident guides?

This is why we advise our disciples not to follow anyone. Let our disciples follow their own Self. Each of our disciples has to follow their resplendent and luminous inner Being. Each one has to adore their own “I Am.”

We beg, beseech, our disciples not to follow us. We do not want henchmen or followers. We have written this book so that you, our friends, listen to your own internal master, your resplendent “I AM.” The Innermost is your master: follow Him.

First, take heed that none of the many false avatars who appear during these times deceive you, for many impostors appear in these times and deceive others.

Second, take heed of sexual temptations.

Third, do not ever attend spiritual centers; the mediums-channelers can easily lead you astray from the path.

Many disciples have fallen horribly due to these three dangerous reasons. Flee from these three treacherous dangers so that you may not lose your initiations and degrees.
