Bikram Choudhury, the founder of the Bikram school of hot yoga, told a student “I need to spiritually enlighten you” as he raped her.
The 67-year-old Indian yoga master is being sued by five different women in the California courts, alleging that he used his guru status to lure in victims and then “crush anyone who speaks against him”.
Mr Choudhury’s method of Bikram Yoga, practiced at 105F (41C) heat, has become wildly popular in Britain and the US and its celebrity devotees include Jennifer Aniston, Lady Gaga and David Beckham.
Yet court documents describe a cult-like atmosphere where the charismatic Mr Choudhury would tell young women training to be instructors they had been “touched by God” before forcing himself upon them.
He “used his status as a guru to identify and victimise the most vulnerable women from among his flock, grooming them, breaking down barriers, and ultimately assaulting them when they were at their most physically, emotionally, or financially vulnerable,” according to court papers.

Many followers of New Age religiosity believe “god” is a source of power. The idea of right or wrong, is based on man made conceptional thinking. It blocks us from tapping into the source of divine oneness.
Face new Age prophets are cult leaders. They teach that man made rules and relegation omits our ability to correct to Universal divinity. What ever man feels is right, he is free to do.
This is a dangerous deception that leads to eternal death and destruction.
New Age cults are breeding grounds of the ultimate ego, lawlessness and perversion. With out an absolute law of God, man is free to womanize, sodomize, rape and murder without facing consequences.
May this example from the UK be a stern warning.
So then, the law is holy, and the commandment is holy, righteous and good.
God of the Bible has set up a moral code of conduct. You find them in the 10 commandments in the Bible. The civilized nations are all based up on this divine law from Heaven. The nations who have rejected God’s law, is ran by barbarians. What people saw, they will reap.
Stay away from such cult of evil.
