Tutteji is without a doubt one of the greatest spiritual entrepreneurs of our time.

We seek perfection outwardly, which is then mirrored back to us in the intoxicating philosophies, experiences of exotic teachers, bliss and love without end. But these are all outward projections. There is no need for the spiritual drag show of this robe verses that robe.
Lets face it this book is a flimsy excuse for nothing but blatant titillation.

The books look like junky erotic fiction to me, so the post looks like pure spam.

Just to be clear, that site is a joke.

Nice to be clear, I guess.
Cleverly done, but I don't find it funny.

That site is fantastic satire, top notch.

:rolling: :rolling:

Given the recent news about that Google-mindfulness whatever thing, and the general saturation of generic "mindfulness" and other meditation out there, it's nice to see someone having a bit of fun with it..and frightening to observe that some of it is not far removed from what it's parodying:(

Transintegralism™ is engaged in by Internet users who have witnessed one major roshi/sensei/rinpoche/tulku/cutting-edge theorist too many, and who thus view a state of voluntary, gleeful sociopathy over the current apocalyptical state as superior to being continually emo.
-Tutteji Wachtmeister

I'm in love, it's been far too long since I felt this sensation :lol:

I love it. Thx for posting the link!

Quote:
Do you wake up in the morning without excitement and passion for what you do? Do you wonder why you don’t make more money, have more clients, have a satisfying sex life, or enjoy the confidence, respect, and authority that come from true spiritual mastery?

Do you have a deep sense of potential spirituality? Are you attracted to the cutting edge of integral entrepeneurship?

Are you ready to take the next step on your spiritual path?

If your answer to these questions is an unequivocal YES, you should probably consider our Spiritual Teacher Training Program.

Actually, that's why I stumbled upon the thing in the OP. Ben, over at that site we're not allowed to link to, posted this:
http://speculativenonbuddhism.com/2014/02/17/mineful-response-and-the-rise-of-corporatist-spirituality/
and that got me looking through the SNB site, and they seem to be quite fond of Master Tutteji over there.
