A.H. Almaas re-categorization[edit]

I notice that Otto4711 removed the category Sufi psychology from the A. H. Almaas article. Sorry, but I've re-added it.

As it says in the article, "The curriculum of the work draws upon the founders' backgrounds in Sufism". See mentions of Sufism and lataif in the article, and these plus nafs and "higher self" in his writings. These are concepts belonging to the practice of Sufi psychology.

Circular[edit]

If you were unknown in society, and you wanted to host a big party with lots of big celebrities, the method you would use is to draw up a list of celebrities, and tell each one that all the others had confirmed they were attending your party.

I get a similar reaction to this sentence from the article:

" In recent years the work of Almaas has received high praise from important spiritual teachers and explorers such as John Welwood, Brant Cortright, Jack Kornfield and Ken Wilber.[9] "

As someone who has studied this area for many decades, I can say that none of these people are "important". Famous, maybe. The latter two are famous for being famous, in the same way as Lindsay Lohan.

There is a Ramana Maharshi book called "Who Am I ?" which contains the entirety of the meaning of life, the universe and everything, and is 12 pages long. This is roughly 500 pages shorter than the average Wilber book, and he has written dozens.

Sorry, by definition, there are not thousands of important things. It is contrary to the definition of important.

So, the sentence is pure marketing hype. But I did not remove it, because it would just be restored by some fanboy. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.126.201.63 (talk) 01:05, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

POV[edit]

This article contains too much propaganda. Aiko (talk) 12:34, 19 March 2013 (UTC)


This is too general a complaint. What is the propaganda? This needs to be specific so that any corrections or clarifications can be put forward.RobnBC (talk) 21:24, 30 June 2013 (UTC) RobnBC (talk) 21:24, 30 June 2013 (UTC)
