Overview

No religious or mystical tradition is immune from the presence of spiritual abuse, for wherever there are people who are seeking to become to closer to essential truths, purpose, and meaning, there will be individuals seeking to generate counterfeit currency to offer to those who are unaware, or uncautious toward the dangers which lie in wait along the spiritual path.

Fraudulent teachers may call themselves a guru, shaykh, rimpoche, monk, priest, imam, apostle, avatar, or minister. They may also call themselves educators, revolutionaries, political leaders, and freedom fighters.
