    Anke, what a great essay on the benefit of developing a (lost) sense of discrimination when traversing what one may hope is the “spiritual” path. Easy answers are so seductive, and the West’s love affair with the East, which is really only as old as the 18th century, makes westerners (and those who sadly imitate them) particularly vulnerable to exploitative snake oil. Wonderfully expressed. So glad you are speaking out.

    Dear Anke,
    I went through the exactly same thing some three years ago, after being “in” for about thirteen years. I am so happy to see more people are coming to their senses about Hare Krishnas!
    Best of luck.
