Ramakrishna seemed to be a homoerotic sexual predator who preyed on his young male disciples. He also seemed to hate women.
“Once he sat after a midday siesta with his loin cloth disheveled. He then remarked that he was sitting like a woman about to suckle her baby. In
fact, he used to suckle his young beloved [male] disciple Rakhal Ghosh…He … exhibited his frankly erotic behavior toward his male devotees and
disciples…. He often posed as their girlfriend or mother and always touched or caressed them lovingly (Sil, 1998). ”

“We cannot ignore [Ramakrishna’s] obsession with the anus and # in his conversations. Even the experience of his highest realization that there
exists within the individual self the Paramatman, the repository of all knowledge, was derived from his beholding a grasshopper with a thin sticklike
object inserted in its anus!….
His ecstasy [i.e., as trance] was induced by touching his favorite young [male] devotees. He developed a few strategies for touching or petting the
body (occasionally the penis, as was the case with Vijaykrishna Goswami, whose cock he calmed by his “touch”) of devotees”

Vivekananda was one of Ramakrishna’s favorite disciples. Vivekanada reportedly had a homoerotic relationship with Ramakrishna. He reportedly drank
alcohol and visited brothels.
“The chain-smoking, diabetic sage, apparently “going gentle into that dark night,” nevertheless passed away only a few years later, in 1902,
after years of declining health. Reaching only an unripe age of thirty-nine, he “thus fulfill[ed] his own prophecy: ‘I shall not live to be forty
years old’” (Nikhilananda, 1996).”
“Of course, there are prophecies, and then there are earlier prophecies:
Vivekananda declared solemnly: “This time I will give hundred years to my body…. This time I have to perform many difficult tasks…. In this life
I shall demonstrate my powers much more than I did in my past life””

“He visited brothels and consumed alcoholic beverages in the company of his friends (Sil, 1997)”

Krishnamurti was discovered by the Theosophical society when he was only a teenager. It seems that Krishanmurti was a puppet whom was groomed from a
young age for the role that he would inevitably play.
“In 1932, Krishnamurti and Rajagopal’s wife began an affair which would last for more than twenty-five years. The woman, Rosalind, became pregnant
on several occasions, suffering miscarriages and at least two covert/illegal abortions. The oddity of that relationship is not lessened by Jiddu’s
earlier regard for the same woman. For, both he and his brother believed that Rosalind was the reincarnation of their long-lost mother … in spite of
the fact that the latter had only died two years after Rosalind was born (Sloss, 2000).”

“Krishnamurti lacked ordinary human compassion and kindness; he was intolerant, even contemptuous, of those who could not rise to his own high plane

“[Emily Lutyens] said she knew Krishna was a congenital liar but that she would nevertheless always adore him…. My mother asked him once why he
lied and he replied
with astonishing frankness, “Because of fear””

Satchidananda was reportedly a sexual deviant whom preyed upon his followers.
“Some people take advantage of the language in the tantric scriptures, “I’m going to teach you tantric yoga,” they say. “Come sleep with
me.” With a heavy heart I tell you that some so-called gurus do this, and to them I say, “If you want to have sex, be open about it. Say, ‘I
love you, child, I love you, my devotee’”….”
Falk, Geoffrey D. Stripping The Gurus. Toronto: Million Monkeys Press, 2009. 55. Print.
“In 1991 numerous female followers stated that he had used his role as their spiritual mentor to exploit them sexually. After the allegations became
public many devotees abandoned Satchidananda and hundreds of students left IYI schools, but the Swami never admitted to any wrongdoing. As a result,
the Integral Yoga organization diminished by more than 1/3. An organization called the Healing Through the Truth Network was formed and at least eight
other women came forward with claims of sexual abuse (S. Cohen, 2002a).
[Susan Cohen claims that] Satchidananda took advantage of her when she was a student from 1969 [when she was eighteen] to 1977″

Neem Karoli Baba
Another apparent sexual deviant with control issues.
“The first time he took me in the room alone I sat up on the tucket [a low wooden bed] with him, and he was like a seventeen-year-old jock who was a
little fast! I felt as if I were fifteen and innocent. He started making out with me, and it was so cute, so pure. I was swept into it for a few
moments—then grew alarmed: “Wait! This is my guru. One doesn’t do this with one’s guru!” So I pulled away from him. Then Maharajji tilted
his head sideways and wrinkled up his eyebrows in a tender, endearing, quizzical look. He didn’t say anything, but his whole being was saying to me,
“Don’t you like me?””
Falk, Geoffrey D. Stripping The Gurus. Toronto: Million Monkeys Press, 2009. 71. Print.
“That was the first time, and I was to be there for two years. During my last month there, I was alone with him every day in the room…. Sometimes
he would just touch me on the breasts and between my legs, saying, “This is mine, this is mine, this is mine. All is mine. You are mine.” You can
interpret it as you want, but near the end in these darshans, it was as though he were my child. Sometimes I felt as though I were suckling a tiny
baby (in Dass, 1979).”
