    So, Therma, as a new poster here, how about you introduce yourself? Why the interest in this thread. Do you train with Sonnon? Amma? You work for an Indian company apparently. Have you had interaction with her?

    Your posts do not disappear you've been building a strawman since he posted that letter questioning his credentials.

    He said he did have personal issues with him. That's not a strawman. That's a correlation.
    Which has nothing to do with your poor attempts at twisting words, making crappy inferences, and building strawman arguments.

    I pointed out where you failed and once again, you went right to something not under debate.

    So you haven't found any of his claims untrue, you're just discussing whether or not they "could" be untrue? Strange.

    Where was this quoted from? I didn't read that in their letter. Did you rewrite it and place quotes around it to make it look legitimate? Or was it just some literary device of yours to imply that they could potentially not be saying what they're saying.

    Secondly, in the letter they never said that they don't know him. Where did that claim of yours come from?

    Some people have found his claims QUESTIONABLE. Questionable and Untrue are not synonyms. So, people investigate the QUESTIONABLE CLAIMS to see if they are true or untrue.

    This is how things work ALL OVER THE WORD. A person makes a claim and then people research to see if it is true. This includes everything from science to the esoteric.

    Questioning a claim, does not mean it's questionable. You can question whether gravity will work and push people off a bridge, but it doesn't imply that gravity is a questionable claim.

    I've been looking at the veracity of these claims. None of the accusations against his yoga statements appear inaccurate. If one questions a claim, then I guess someone else can find your questions to be inaccurate.

    So you didn't quote their organization, you just fabricated it. Okay.

    Oh look what you did, now they are accusations.

    Questioning a claim, does not mean it's questionable.
    Actually, it depends completely on context. So, yes, it can mean it is questionable.

    Ah, you don't come here much do you? It is common to make "corrections" for effect...to make a point.
