"I know people who have been damaged by the choice they made as adults to be involved in Amaroo. And yes, it is sad. But in the end they have to take responsibility for it. Demonising Rawat only keeps you locked into a toxic and obsessive state of mind and you stop thinking clearly."
Based upon your logic you're trying to shoot the messenger who in this case is Nya and ex-premies.
Have you ever heard of blaming the victim? Your statement above is exactly what you're saying about Maharaji and his premies with regard to Amaroo and then you swerve and also blame ex-premies, specifically Nya. Why is it that Maharaji never takes responsibility for all the many huge mistakes he's made in his career as a guru? He's been an adult much longer than he was a child guru. Why is it that premies such as yourself can't or don't complain directly to Maharaji about his failures and bad judgments?
Nya wrote a report. Nya also has the moral authority to write that report because she donated large sums of money under pressure from Maharaji's closest associates. It's not Nya's fault that Amaroo is in the pits. She's just reporting the facts. She also has an interest in that Amaroo land and she has a right to complain and report about it.
But, what did she receive from premies? Direct threats upon her person. Is that what makes life so great for the followers of Maharaji? To threaten people on behalf of Maharaji and your life in his little world? You talk about the mind but you're not using yours.
Why don't you ask Maharaji why he spent so much of the money donated by premies (as Nya did) for his own extravagant and oppulent comforts at Amaroo? If you have anyone to blame for Amaroo's failure, why not point your finger directly towards Malibu where Maharaji has also sunk millions of dollars of premies' money for his home there? Ask the source of Amaroo's problems, and not by watching a video. Ask Maharaji directly what happened and why.
Why is it impossible for you to even consider that it's Maharaji himself who has lead the premies, who have trusted him the most, into financial ruin? Do you ever ponder that question?
Do you ever wonder why everything around Maharaji is such a big secret? If not, why not? Why does Maharaji get a pass on everything he has ever done that involves using the very people who love him the most? I don't use the word "use" lightly either. Do you ever wonder why Maharaji gets all the good stuff and the premies end up in a ditch financially?
You can ask Maharaji about these things. Why are you so frightened of him, Maharaji is just a human being just like you. He's not playing out a lila here, the failures of Amaroo are but one example of the way Maharaji has always run his life and subsequently run the lives of premies into ruin.
You want answers, ask the source of the problems: Prem Rawat. You're not going to shut ex-premies up, so you can give up on that one. Ask Rawat about his responsibility in losing Amaroo. While you're at it, ask Maharaji why he's so afraid of publicity while he's preaching to his premies that he wants to propagate knowledge to every land.
