Sinossi

"Sex, Lies, and Two Hindu Gurus — Telling Their Secrets and Finding My Truth"

Read the Book My Ex-Cult Doesn't Want You to Read!

Karen Jonson woke up on July 25th 2013 to find that her blog about her ex-cult had been cyber-attacked with the same force used by cyber-criminals to bring down WikiLeaks.com. One month before that YouTube had removed her book trailer video after receiving a complaint from a mysterious person. A few months later her ex-cult requested that Amazon remove her book — the online merchant declined.

What secrets is this cult hiding? What don’t they want you to know? Could it be one guru’s “secret sex factory” involving consenting adults and child rapes? Could it be the conviction and escape of the other child-molesting guru? Could it be the billion-dollar network of India-based trusts — created with donation scams? Or the mysterious deaths and disappearances? In fact, there are many secrets Karen’s ex-gurus want to keep hidden — just as they had for 60 years.

Until now.

Now, in "Sex, Lies, and Two Hindu Gurus," Karen exposes the dark and twisted secrets of her two former “gurus.” This riveting book is at once a true crime drama, a memoir, and a cautionary tale — warning others to look before they leap into the abusive world of corrupt spiritual leaders.

10 Reasons To Read "Sex, Lies, and Two Hindu Gurus"

1. See inside the unnatural world of a cult, including how it operates far outside of the values and mores of traditional society.
2. Follow the journey of a sincere spiritual seeker as she takes a very wrong turn down a road that leads into the clutches of a dangerous cult.
3. Learn how easy it is for people to pose as God and convince others to perform acts they would never have participated in under normal circumstance.
4. Learn how cults work, including their “tricks of the trade” to understand what can happen when a sociopath has full control over a large group of people.
5. See how a sociopath operates. While few people will come face to face with a sociopath as despicable as the two gurus in this book, everyone should be aware of the propensity for 4% of the population to perform evil acts to such a degree.
6. Gain important knowledge to stay cult-proof. Learn important tips on how to discern the real from the unreal when it comes to men and women claiming to be “gurus,” to protect yourself, your friends, your family, and your children.
7. See inside the criminal trial of a man whose power, influence, and wealth nearly let him get away with his crimes of abusing children. While he escaped justice, he completely lost his life as a free man.
8. Learn by example how to appropriately question people in positions of authority, so that you are never emotionally, psychologically, or physically abused by them.
9. Read the harrowing story of someone who actually stood up to evil people. As media reports indicate, far too few people speak out when faced with the reality of a child molester or other criminals in their midst.
10. Gain strength by the author’s personal David and Goliath experience, as she worked tirelessly to expose a dangerous cult for all the world to see.

L'autore

Meet Author Karen Jonson Nothing in my pre-guru years hinted at the direction my life would ultimately take. I had no clue that I would one day become a renounced Hindu nun living in the U.S. ashram of two men I called my gurus. Nor did I imagine that I would learn that they were nothing more than conmen dressed in orange clothing. I certainly never would have guessed I would one day expose their dark secrets to the world. But that is exactly what happened. My commitment to tell the truth led me down several new paths — including spilling secrets to a newspaper investigative reporter and FBI agent, organizing a support group of ex-devotee victims, sharing insider information with prosecuting attorneys, and starting a blog and Facebook page. The culmination of my effort was writing this book. My hope is that it will give readers a rare look inside this dangerous cult. It is shocking story of a spiritual con game, including what the gurus were actually doing behind closed bedroom doors, how they have ruined thousands of people’s lives, and why no one has stopped them from raping underage girls, stealing people’s money, and ruining people’s lives. Since its publication in 2012, my story has helped keep many people out of the cult's clutches — and I'm very grateful. Readers will find a fascinating book that is a thriller on the level of any dramatic story (yet, this story is real, proving that the truth can be stranger than fiction). It is also a true crime drama, proving insight of the legal process necessary to prosecute a slippery con man. And it is a cautionary tale for any person seeking spirituality from someone who professes to be God incarnate. While telling my story, I have been stalked and slandered by members of the Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat cult. At one point, I created the penname Rishika Xcult to keep my identity a secret. The irony of my penname is that it means "saintly" in Hindi. I lived in the ashram of two gurus who called themselves saints, yet were anything but saintly. Meanwhile, I actually gave up worldly pleasures in the pursuit of God. As a result, I lived a more saintly life than the two men who call themselves saints. But on my book, I chose to speak out using my real name. Unlike my ex-gurus, I have no secrets. Learn more at www.rishikaxcult.com and www.theinnerwisdomprojects.com.

I just finished reading Karens book and I must say I think it is amazing. I meet people all the time that think they have found the way to God through various religions, new age seminars, the list goes on and on. Just last week I met a Morman family on a plane, and then a few days later, a woman that was going to a Christian college. These folks both tried to convince me that they had the answers as far as the truth of God is concerned. The Morman said he has a living prophet. I told him about my experience with the "living saints" from Barsana Dham that I had encountered over many years and you could see his mind thinking deeply about his own spiritual teacher. I think one of the main things to realize from Karens book is that when religion, spirituality, takes over your life and you think you have all the answers, maybe one could take some time and step back and evaluate very carefully where and what you are involved in and why. Karen Jonson is a very brave and amazing women for publishing this book. I think this book translates to many cultures/people/religions, to anytime a person is considering coming under, or is under the infuence of a book, scripture, leader, group, priest, guru,etc. and that person becomes so overshadowed that they no longer pay attention to the God within, the voice of knowing right from wrong within themselves. I have heard of so many Americans falling under the control of various Eastern Gurus. This is particularly a must read for those innocent God loving souls.

4.0 su 5 stelle A fascinating account 4 novembre 2012
Di Billie - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato
This was a fascinating account of a life-consuming experience with a deceptive cult, where two Hindu gurus claimed to hold the answers to Karen's salvation and her release from the depression and anxiety associated with the traumatic experiences her life. In fact these Gurus were solely preoccupied with maximising their "private time" with female devotees, whilst draining the bank accounts of the free labour force they ruled. It is a truly frightening story of how Karen gradually but completely handed over her freedom, her decision-making capacity, her income and eventually her soul to these criminals. I think books like this should be made widely available for young people to gain awareness of the ease with which they can be consumed by mind-control when they are vulnerable; however Karen considered herself well aware of the destructive nature of cults such as the Moonies and the People's Temple. I would have liked a bit more depth about the spiritual side of the cult and how this fulfilled her for 15 years. Overall well done to a brave author who managed to regain control of her life and has tried to help others in the process. I hope to read more about what she is doing now as she progresses with her healing.

Karen has to be complimented on two virtues that stand out in her writing ,her honesty and her sincerity . It leaves no doubt in the reader's mind that she is a sincere seeker of God and that's what made her susceptible to her situation. I can easily understand how fifteen years can go by
and she does not get out of the turmoil because there is a constant " mantra" going around that you have to purify yourself before you get Guru's grace. As the above scenario is created
sincere seekers do everything they can to get the grace....till the dark secrets come out!!!
Her sense of humour is hard to miss and her lighthearted personality comes through in her
writing. And , finally she triumphs in the physical world as well as emerges spiritually enlightened.
A must read for all seekers of the truth , religion and spirituality

5.0 su 5 stelle A good read about cult craziness 25 agosto 2013
Di Shiva Kali - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile|Acquisto verificato
I used to belong to a couple of cults with Indian gurus in my twenties and early thirties, so I was intrigued by the titled. I have read several memoirs from former members of cults, and this one stands out among them. The reason is that she is a good writer and her particular cult was just so messed up. The gurus really were scum. It reads like a spy thriller.

Some reviewers felt that it was too detailed, but I enjoyed the detail. For me, the details served as a reminder of how lost in a screwed up mind set I allow myself to go. Anyone who has been in a cult would appreciate the detailed descent into a cult mindset and the convulsive ejection out of that mindset that the author seemed to have experienced. This book it a fascinating read into the psychology of cults and of co-dependent relationships.
