Eckankar is a religion created in 1965 by Paul Twitchell based off of the Sant Mat Movement. They believe in an unbroken chain of spiritual masters for thousands of years. Do we believe in this or not? I've heard that their founder was a con artist, but then again people of had darshans of the spiritual masters called "Mahantas". I don't think I believe in it, but I want to hear the Khalsa's opinion.

Ah yes, "Eckankar - Easy Travel to Other Planets." Look... if you follow any spiritual path you can reach your destination. If you follow any spiritual teacher with deep devotion and surrender, you will reach your destination.... even if that spiritual teacher is bogus. You attain your goal through YOUR DEVOTION. It is your love and your surrender that makes it happen. If you belong to the True Guru, He will hold His hand over your head through all the ups and downs, errors and tragedies of your life. No, we don't follow Paul Twitchell. We follow Guru Granth Sahib Ji. Don't worry though.... you can still travel easily to other planets. Everyone has a subtle body. When you master it, you can travel anywhere you wish.
