There are lot of "spiritual cults" in our society today. You can see lot of followers of every cult. Also, you will find lot of criticism and cynicism against these cults.

Personally, I am not a follower of any particular cult. But I do listen to their gurus, read their books and go through various courses of different cults. I have realised that these cults are very much similar- the teachings and the preachings are not very different. So I take the best out of all these cults and inculcate them in my life.

As I mentioned before, there are lot of people who abhor such cults. They feel that people who follow them are non-thinkers, superstitious and so on. Well, all are entitled to their opinions. But if people are content with various ways to beat stress and find peace , I think we should let them be. After all, yoga, pranayama or meditation or anything positive thought by these cults will always be lifetime assets.

I don't have a problem with any set of beliefs, provided adherents to a particular religion do not try to impose their beliefs on others.
