From Hinduism and the manu code to Gurdjieff/Ouspensky
The portrait in Doniger’s book on Hindus of the way the brahmin caste took over the yogic tradition and then made the whole thing keyed into the Manu code is very outrageous.
And we can see the same tactics being used in the Gurdjieff legacy, or, rather, by Gurdjieff, and Ouspensky, who wrote a book, please note, on the code of Manu, that spurious piece of crap that has done such immense harm.
It is important to snap out of it and not let this happen to the current civilization. Stop buying into the con-man claims of authority for these people.
