radhasoami
I'm skeptical about this religious cult, mostly because of one single so-called Perfect Master (guru) who is probably damaging both Radhasoami Sant Mat and the serious and devoted believers in this religious path. I have to emphasize that I'm not against any particular religion or guru in general - I am sure there are sincere gurus in the world - I just don't believe Michael Martin is one of them. A POV I share with a lot of Yahoo- and Google-group-members.
False Guru:
Michael Martin, a guru from East Texas, who claims to be
God incarnate, a Perfect Living Master in the Shabd Yoga
Radhasoami Tradition.
"We use more discriminating intelligence when we buy a used car than when we buy a religion", says philosophy professor and cult-buster David Christopher Lane. "Buying a used car you at least look underneath the hood, hit the tires, maybe take it to a mechanic to check it out. But in buying a religion you're supposed to wear these narrow blinders, so that if anybody disagrees you can block it out. It's basically, check your brains at the door when you join a religion."

I found this  warning on the Internet.
In case you want to check this self-proclaimed guru out, here is a great link:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/radhasoamistudies

This group will give you a very  nuanced picture of his motives and personality, because here he has to deal with other people, which he does in a very pompous, rude and often evil and threatening way.


The groups below  are censored by M.M., which means that there are about 2 active members there - M.M. and a woman.
