I think I understand what you are saying my friend... and, quite 
obviously, it is anyone's choice to turn on a blind eye to such 
horrific accusations and sweep them under the rug. I tend to believe 
there is a little truth attached to everything said and so the damage 
to my perception of this self-realized man has been done. 

Bottom line, whether the accusations are true or not, it comes down 
to mental mechanics. The impressions made of such exploitations 
coming from a "realized" man are undeniably inscribed in my mind. 
And, so, when I flip through one of Muktananda's books, by 
association these impressions appear and they become a very nagging 
distraction. This is a very subtle thing indeed, but, never the 
less, very distructive to my concentration. 

Most sincerely,
