I'm compelled to write this open letter to Mr.
Rawat and if I email it to him no one will see it,
so I'm posting it here:
To: Mr. Rawat, Elan Vital Monitors, Elan Vital
From: Cynthia Gracie, Warren, VT, USA
Re: Child Sexual Abuse by Jagdeo
It is abuntantly clear that you continue to
choose to ignore that an Agent of yours, known as
Mahatma Jagdeo (Jagdeo), has been accused of
sexually abusing children and teens while in the
employ and/or working as a volunteer, of the
defunct 'Divine Light Mission,' (DLM) now known as
'Elan Vital,' (EV).
You have been provided with personal accounts
and complaints of said abuse on numerous occasions
and the responses have been unsatisfactory. It is a
fact that after you received the letters from Susan
H. through Michael Dettmers, that your Legal
Department responded. It is also a fact that after
said response, the FAQ section on the EV website
was revised. This issue has not been resolved by a
long shot, Mr. Rawat.
Mr. Rawat, there is ample proof that the alleged
perpetrator, Jagdeo, did commit these criminal
offenses against the complainants. By all
descriptions of these sexual acts performed by
Jagdeo on children entrusted into his care, while
your Agent, in a position of power which was well
beyond normal circumstances, because you run a
cult, it is clear he is a pedophile.
You have voluntarily put yourself forward
publicly as a humanitarian, Mr. Rawat, someone who
loves and cherishes human life, a Master of Love,
The Lord of the Universe, Perfect Master, Creator,
Highly Evolved Teacher, and many other monikers
which you used to brainwash thousands of people
since you set foot in the Western world.
When I was a member of your cult, I remember you
giving 'satsang' (speech) about seeing a child
being beaten or hit while you happened to be
shopping one day. You said in that speech that you
felt like walking up to the person and saying
(paraphrased) 'why don't you hit yourself if you
feel like hitting someone.'
When I heard this statement from your speech, I
believed that you were a compassionate
humanitarian. I believed that you cared about
children. I was dead wrong. Mr. Rawat, your denial
of your responsibility as the spiritual teacher and
leader of EV is wearing very thin. It has become
laughable. Why did you allow Jagdeo to leave the
United States when you were aware that he was
comitting heinous acts, in fact, criminal offenses,
against the children of your premies, people with
your so-called Knowledge, who entrusted their lives
with you, people who dedicated everything to you?
Why does Jagdeo now remain free without any
accountability or consequences for his crimes? Why
are you afraid to take action, Mr. Rawat?
You have much to answer for Mr. Rawat. You are
the person ultimately responsible for the Agents of
your organization(s). Children were severely
wounded by the acts of your Agent, Jagdeo. It's
time for you to do something about it.
It's time to decide, Mr. Rawat, remember
I look forward to your response, Mr. Rawat. My
address above is ample for me to receive mail
through the U.S Postal Service.
