If you still have any doubts about the reality of the sexual abuse these women endured, read the testimonies with an open heart and judge for yourself - it is really heartbreaking.
Four of those brave women who made testimonies are my friends. I am quite regularly in contact with them and we talked many times about the sexual abuses. I had a few chats with one of them and I was in the centre the same time as her. There are three of them that I am not in contact with but we were in the Centre at the same time and, even if "boys" and "girls" were much separated, I talked quite a few times with each of them. Only one I do not know personally.
The idea that they are all lying in order to destroy Chinmoy's image is absolutely ridiculous. Believe me, once you leave such an organisation, the only thing you want to do is to move on. But in order to really move on it is necessary to face the truth and talk about it.
If you are an ex or a current disciple and it is the first time you come across this, please take your time, it could be a very difficult moment. I know it is very hard, but no matter how hard it is, facing the truth is always a good thing. It is the real start of moving on with your life, instead of staying stuck in old beliefs. And if ever you need to talk about it, you can send me a message using the contact form at the end of the right column of the blog. We can have a chat or I can put you in contact with some very good people who moved on with their life.
