<<<<<<Jerry: "The "founder of Eckankar" was Paul Twitchell, who taught that Eck is a sound-based technique for astral travling. It is probably not fair to lump him together with Rampa"

Maybe, but pls read :

And tell me what you think of it.

Wow, a whole web site on Twitchell bashing. Actually, I read Rampa and Twitchell and Steiner and a little of Bailey many years ago and did not care for any of them.

I don't have time to read all that stuff, not do I care much, having dismissed Eck many years ago as a sufi-magico version of Theosophy (although I am sure that his wonderful and colorful astral traveling depictions, as well as those of Steiner, were formative, in great part, for my own astral traveling work that came some years later). 

So, ok, maybe it is fair that they are grouped together after all. :-)
