SUBJECT: NEW AGE IN YOUR ARCHDIOCESE: FR. JOE PEREIRA, KRIPA FOUNDATION, THE WORLD COMMUNITY FOR CHRISTIAN MEDITATION [WCCM], AND THE CATHOLIC ASHRAMS MOVEMENT

KIND ATTENTION:

HIS EMINENCE OSWALD CARDINAL GRACIAS, ARCHBISHOP OF BOMBAY,

VICE PRESIDENT, CATHOLIC BISHOPS’ CONFERENCE OF INDIA

Your Eminence,

In October 2005, when you were the Archbishop of Agra, I had sent you my 96-page report on the New Age in the Catholic Ashrams movement
in India,
http://ephesians-511.net/articles_doc/CATHOLIC%20ASHRAMS.doc

and you had acknowledged receipt of it.

After that, I did not hear from you your response to the issues that I had raised in that report.

The last 10 pages of that report were on
Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation, showing that both, the priest and his organization, promote New Age.

Now, after intensive research, I have updated the 10-page report on Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation to around 100 pages. It is difficult for me to be brief, either in my forthcoming report or in this letter to you, partly because of the extent of the errors being propagated, and partly because Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation do not stand alone in their errors.

1a. Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation enjoy the full support of the Archdiocese of Bombay:

Almost every issue of the Archdiocesan weekly, The Examiner, carries information about their activities.

All their activities are conducted in Catholic institutions. Kripa is “an Archdiocesan project”. Fr. Joe Pereira is
“consultant to the Archdiocese of Bombay for alcohol and drug abuse”.

All details and evidence are in the forthcoming report.

1b. Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation enjoy your full support:

The Examiner, March 7, 2009: ENGAGEMENTS – OSWALD CARDINAL GRACIAS – Wed. March 11, 7:00 pm.

Presides at felicitation of Fr. Joe Pereira (Padma Shree), Mount Carmel Church ground, Bandra

The Examiner, March 7, 2009: Felicitation of Fr. Joe Pereira (Padma Shree) Mount Carmel Parish, Bandra, is organizing a felicitation ceremony in honour of Fr. Joe Pereira who has been awarded the Padma Shree by the Government of India. The programme will be held on the church grounds from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm on Wednesday March 11, 2009. His Eminence, Cardinal Oswald Gracias, will preside. All are welcome.

http://www.kripafoundation.org/Know_us.html: BOARD OF TRUSTEES [of which you are the head]

His Eminence, Cardinal Oswald Gracias, Cardinal of Mumbai

 

 

1c. There is enough New Age on the Kripa website and blog, an excerpt of which I have sent you on April 20.

Fr. Joe Pereira promotes Iyengar Yoga. In my 2005 report I have shown that Fr. Joe Pereira himself admits that his master and yoga guru BKS Iyengar’s Kundalini Yoga/Tantra Yoga is occultism. 

This priest advocates the “removal of celibacy for priests”, and “teaching young priests not to be inhibited with the opposite sex and to acknowledge their sexuality through yoga”.

The priest rejects Church teaching on the use of condoms for AIDS prevention.
Again, in a report on Inculturation, Fr. Joe Pereira’s statement on the use of contraceptives, ‘Leave the choice of birth control to the conscience of the people’ shows that he does not accept the Church’s teachings on life.

Very often he brazenly lies as my report shows and he also falsifies Church teaching.

I had written to you in connection with the subject of Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation on April 13, April 15 and April 20, 2009, asking you some questions and advising you that “An updated report on this priest and his New Age yoga foundation, and the spiritual errors that they promote in the name of holistic health care, will soon be released”. However, I have not heard from you till the time of my writing again today, after three weeks.

I had also written to the Arch/Bishops of all the 14 other arch/dioceses where Kripa has been institutionalized by the Church, but no Bishop has responded. You must be aware that this will not discourage me from my ministry to create awareness about New Age error and expose it wherever it is propagated in the Church in India.

2a. Fr. Joe Pereira is the Indian coordinator for the
World Community for Christian Meditation {WCCM}, welcomed there by Ivan Cardinal Dias, and whose headquarters in India is in your Archdiocese of Bombay.

Almost every issue of the Archdiocesan weekly, The Examiner, carries information about their activities.

All their activities are conducted in Catholic institutions.

All their activities are supported by the Bishops of Bombay.

2b. Their “Christian Meditation”
is not Christian but
Hindu-Christian-BuddhistNew Age.

2c. There is hardcore
New Age on the WCCM website.

2d. The WCCM is closely associated with the Bede Griffiths Sangha, a New Age group which is again associated with the Ashrams movement.

2e. The WCCM is closely associated with the
Buddhist Christian Vedanta Network, another New Age group which is again connected with the Ashrams movement and with strongly and overtly New Age groups.

All details and evidence are in the forthcoming report.

You are aware by now that my research is done meticulously, leaving no room for error or surmise.

Fr. Joe Pereira and his Kripa Foundation and the World Community for Christian Meditation {WCCM} are New Age Trojan horses in the Indian Church, and pose a great spiritual danger to the Catholic Faith.

I would like to know what you intend to do, as Cardinal Archbishop of Bombay and Vice-President of the CBCI, about this most serious situation.

Would you like me to send you a copy of the report as soon as it is completed?

Yours obediently,

Michael Prabhu

Catholic apologist www.ephesians-511.net

PS: Mr. Raymond Lobo of Bombay, who had leased his Mooduhithlu [near Mangalore] property to Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation and later cancelled the Agreement because of mismanagement by Kripa, wrote to you on December 4, 2007, September 19, 2008, and December 6, 2008 by Registered Letter A.D., quoting all the abusive language used by Fr. Joe Pereira in his email letters, and enclosing copies of letters and relevant documents, asking you to use your good offices to help get back his property from Fr. Joe Pereira.

Though Fr. Joe Pereira is a priest of your Archdiocese and Kripa is an Archdiocesan initiative, according to Mr. Lobo, you did not respond to him. I have copies of similar abusive letters of Fr Joe Pereira to other people.

The Examiner, October 13, 2007: Meditation Centre: Day of Silence

EXTRACT: In his introduction to the Liturgy, Bishop Agnelo Gracias
said that the presence of so many was indicative of a ‘new development’ in the Church of Mumbai. It was the ‘Day of Silence’ organized by the Christian Meditation Centre on October 2, 2007. Some 66 participants far exceeded expectations.

Fr. Joe regularly quotes you or uses your name to convey the impression that you support his work.

The Kripa centre in Vasai was blessed by you.

The Centre in your diocese of Vasai is run by a priest, Father Joseph Topno.

From the Kripa website http://www.kripafoundation.org/Itinerary_Inside_page.html:

April 2, 2009:
Felicitation [on Fr. Joe’s being awarded the Padma Shri] By Rt. Rev. Bishop Dr. Thomas Dabre, Vasai Diocese, at Mass of the Holy Oil at Bishop House, 5.30 pm.

In the DVD “India: The Lotus and the Cross”: Fr. Joe Pereira explains the programme for AIDS-HIV afflicted persons, while the visuals pan to the commemorative plaque of Kripa’s Vasai centre which reads: FUNDS PROVIDED BY THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITY, BRUSSELS, THE LUXEMBOURG MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS, AIDE A L’ENFANCE DE L’INDE LUXEMBOURG, BLESSED BY BISHOP THOMAS DABRE ON 17TH APRIL 1994, INAUGURATED BY MOTHER TERESA ON 15TH MAY 1994.

Fr. Joe Pereira promotes Iyengar Yoga. In my 2005 report I have shown that Fr. Joe Pereira himself admits that his master and yoga guru BKS Iyengar’s Kundalini Yoga/Tantra Yoga is occultism. 

This priest advocates the “removal of celibacy for priests”, and “teaching young priests not to be inhibited with the opposite sex and to acknowledge their sexuality through yoga”.

The priest rejects Church teaching on the use of condoms for AIDS prevention.
Again, in a report on Inculturation, Fr. Joe Pereira’s statement on the use of contraceptives, ‘Leave the choice of birth control to the conscience of the people’ shows that he does not accept the Church’s teachings on life.

Very often he brazenly lies as my report shows and he also falsifies Church teaching.

I had written to you in connection with the subject of Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation on April 13, April 15 and April 20, 2009, asking you some questions and advising you that “An updated report on this priest and his New Age yoga foundation, and the spiritual errors that they promote in the name of holistic health care, will soon be released”. However, I have not heard from you till the time of my writing again today, after three weeks.

I had also written to the Arch/Bishops of all the 14 other arch/dioceses where Kripa has been institutionalized by the Church, but no Bishop has responded. You must be aware that this will not discourage me from my ministry to create awareness about New Age error and expose it wherever it is propagated in the Church in India.

2a. Fr. Joe Pereira is the Indian coordinator for the
World Community for Christian Meditation {WCCM}, welcomed there by Ivan Cardinal Dias, and whose headquarters in India is in the Archdiocese of Bombay.

Almost every issue of the Archdiocesan weekly, The Examiner, carries information about their activities.

All their activities are conducted in Catholic institutions.

All their activities are supported by the Bishops of Bombay.

2b. Their “Christian Meditation”
is not Christian but
Hindu-Christian-BuddhistNew Age.

2c. There is hardcore
New Age on the WCCM website.

2d. The WCCM is closely associated with the Bede Griffiths Sangha, a New Age group which is again associated with the Ashrams movement.

2e. The WCCM is closely associated with the
Buddhist Christian Vedanta Network, another New Age group which is again connected with the Ashrams movement and with strongly and overtly New Age groups.

All details and evidence are in the forthcoming report.

You are aware by now that my research is done meticulously, leaving no room for error or surmise.

Fr. Joe Pereira and his Kripa Foundation and the World Community for Christian Meditation {WCCM} are New Age Trojan horses in the Indian Church, and pose a great spiritual danger to the Catholic Faith.

I would like to know what you intend to do as Bishop of Poona, where Kripa has a centre, as Apostolic Administrator of Vasai, and as Chairman of the CBCI’s Doctrinal Commission, about this most serious situation. Would you like me to send you a copy of the report as soon as it is completed?

Your Grace,

In October 2005 I had sent you my 96-page report on the New Age in the Catholic Ashrams movement
in India,
http://ephesians-511.net/articles_doc/CATHOLIC%20ASHRAMS.doc

but you had not acknowledged receipt of it. I did not receive from you your response to the issues that I had raised in that report.

The last 10 pages of that report were on
Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation, showing that both, the priest and his organization, promote New Age.

Now, after intensive research, I have updated the 10-page report on Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation to around 100 pages. It is difficult for me to be brief, either in my forthcoming report or in this letter to you, partly because of the extent of the errors being propagated, and partly because Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation do not stand alone in their errors.

1a. Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation enjoy the full support of the Archdiocese of Bombay:

Almost every issue of the Archdiocesan weekly, The Examiner, carries information about their activities.

All their activities are conducted in Catholic institutions. Kripa is “an Archdiocesan project”. Fr. Joe Pereira is
“consultant to the Archdiocese of Bombay for alcohol and drug abuse”.

All details and evidence are in the forthcoming report.

1b. Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation [and WCCM] enjoy your full support:

There is a Kripa centre in Pune since the time that you were the Bishop of Poona.

This priest advocates the “removal of celibacy for priests”, and “teaching young priests not to be inhibited with the opposite sex and to acknowledge their sexuality through yoga”.

The priest rejects Church teaching on the use of condoms for AIDS prevention.
Again, in a report on Inculturation, Fr. Joe Pereira’s statement on the use of contraceptives, ‘Leave the choice of birth control to the conscience of the people’ shows that he does not accept the Church’s teachings on life.

Very often he brazenly lies as my report shows and he also falsifies Church teaching.

I had written to you in connection with the subject of Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation on April 13, April 15 and April 20, 2009, asking you some questions and advising you that “An updated report on this priest and his New Age yoga foundation, and the spiritual errors that they promote in the name of holistic health care, will soon be released”. However, I have not heard from you till the time of my writing again today, after three weeks.

I had also written to the Arch/Bishops of all the 14 other arch/dioceses where Kripa has been institutionalized by the Church, but no Bishop has responded. You must be aware that this will not discourage me from my ministry to create awareness about New Age error and expose it wherever it is propagated in the Church in India.

2a. Fr. Joe Pereira is the Indian coordinator for the
World Community for Christian Meditation {WCCM}, welcomed there by Ivan Cardinal Dias, and whose headquarters in India is in the Archdiocese of Bombay.

Almost every issue of the Archdiocesan weekly, The Examiner, carries information about their activities.

All their activities are conducted in Catholic institutions.

All their activities are supported by the Bishops of Bombay.

2b. Their “Christian Meditation”
is not Christian but
Hindu-Christian-BuddhistNew Age.

2c. There is hardcore
New Age on the WCCM website.

2d. The WCCM is closely associated with the Bede Griffiths Sangha, a New Age group which is again associated with the Ashrams movement.

2e. The WCCM is closely associated with the
Buddhist Christian Vedanta Network, another New Age group which is again connected with the Ashrams movement and with strongly and overtly New Age groups.

All details and evidence are in the forthcoming report.

You are aware by now that my research is done meticulously, leaving no room for error or surmise.

Fr. Joe Pereira and his Kripa Foundation and the World Community for Christian Meditation {WCCM} are New Age Trojan horses in the Indian Church, and pose a great spiritual danger to the Catholic Faith.

I would like to know what you intend to do as Archbishop of Shillong where Kripa has its centre, about this most serious situation.

Would you like me to send you a copy of the report as soon as it is completed?

Yours obediently,

KIND ATTENTION:

MOST REV. ALOYSIUS PAUL D’SOUZA

BISHOP OF MANGALORE

Your Grace,

In October 2005, I had sent you my 96-page report on the New Age in the Catholic Ashrams movement
in India,
http://ephesians-511.net/articles_doc/CATHOLIC%20ASHRAMS.doc

and you had acknowledged receipt of it.

After that, I did not hear from you your response to the issues that I had raised in that report.

The last 10 pages of that report were on
Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation, showing that both, the priest and his organization, promote New Age.

Now, after intensive research, I have updated the 10-page report on Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation to around 100 pages. It is difficult for me to be brief, either in my forthcoming report or in this letter to you, partly because of the extent of the errors being propagated, and partly because Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation do not stand alone in their errors.

1a. Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation enjoy the full support of the Archdiocese of Bombay:

Almost every issue of the Archdiocesan weekly, The Examiner, carries information about their activities.

All their activities are conducted in Catholic institutions. Kripa is “an Archdiocesan project”. Fr. Joe Pereira is
“consultant to the Archdiocese of Bombay for alcohol and drug abuse”.

All details and evidence are in the forthcoming report.

1b. Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation enjoy your full support:

Kripa Foundation has a centre in Mangalore and had one near Moodbidri till recently.

1c. There is enough New Age on the Kripa website and blog, an excerpt of which I have sent you on April 20.

PS: Mr. Raymond Lobo of Bombay, who had leased his Mooduhithlu [near Mangalore] property to Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation and later cancelled the Agreement because of mismanagement by Kripa, wrote to the Archbishop of Bombay on December 4, 2007, September 19, 2008, and December 6, 2008 by Registered Letter A.D., quoting all the abusive language used by Fr. Joe Pereira in his email letters, and enclosing copies of letters and relevant documents, asking the Cardinal to use his good offices to help get back his property from Fr. Joe Pereira. I have copies of similar abusive letters of Fr Joe Pereira to other people.

Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation on May 13, 2009, asking you some questions and advising you that “An updated report on this priest and his New Age yoga foundation, and the spiritual errors that they promote in the name of holistic health care, will soon be released”. However, I have not heard from you till the time of my writing again today..

I had also written to the Arch/Bishops of all the 14 other arch/dioceses where Kripa has been institutionalized by the Church, but no Bishop has responded. You must be aware that this will not discourage me from my ministry to create awareness about New Age error and expose it wherever it is propagated in the Church in India.

2a. Fr. Joe Pereira is the Indian coordinator for the
World Community for Christian Meditation {WCCM}, welcomed there by Ivan Cardinal Dias, and whose headquarters in India is in the Archdiocese of Bombay.

Almost every issue of the Archdiocesan weekly, The Examiner, carries information about their activities.

All their activities are conducted in Catholic institutions.

All their activities are supported by the Bishops of Bombay.

2b. Their “Christian Meditation”
is not Christian but
Hindu-Christian-BuddhistNew Age.

2c. There is hardcore
New Age on the WCCM website.

2d. The WCCM is closely associated with the Bede Griffiths Sangha, a New Age group which is again associated with the Ashrams movement.

2e. The WCCM is closely associated with the
Buddhist Christian Vedanta Network, another New Age group which is again connected with the Ashrams movement and with strongly and overtly New Age groups.

All details and evidence are in the forthcoming report.

You are aware by now that my research is done meticulously, leaving no room for error or surmise.

 

 

 

Fr. Joe Pereira and his Kripa Foundation and the World Community for Christian Meditation {WCCM} are New Age Trojan horses in the Indian Church, and pose a great spiritual danger to the Catholic Faith.

I would like to know what you intend to do as Archbishop of Guwahati where Kripa has its centre, about this most serious situation.

Would you like me to send you a copy of the report as soon as it is completed?

KIND ATTENTION:

HIS EMINENCE TELESPHORE CARDINAL TOPPO

ARCHBISHOP OF RANCHI

MEMBER, PONTIFICAL COUNCIL FOR CULTURE, THE VATICAN

Your Eminence,

In October 2005 I had sent you my 96-page report on the New Age in the Catholic Ashrams movement
in India,
http://ephesians-511.net/articles_doc/CATHOLIC%20ASHRAMS.doc

but you had not acknowledged receipt of that report.

Your Office Assistant Fr. Francken, S.J., responded to my 10th reminder assuring me that you would respond.

After that, I did not hear from you in response to the issues that I had raised in that report.

The last 10 pages of that report were on
Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation, showing that both, the priest and his organization, promote New Age.

Now, after intensive research, I have updated the 10-page report on Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation to around 100 pages. It is difficult for me to be brief, either in my forthcoming report or in this letter to you, partly because of the extent of the errors being propagated, and partly because Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation do not stand alone in their errors.

1a. Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation enjoy the full support of the Archdiocese of Bombay:

Almost every issue of the Archdiocesan weekly, The Examiner, carries information about their activities.

All their activities are conducted in Catholic institutions. Kripa is “an Archdiocesan project”. Fr. Joe Pereira is
“consultant to the Archdiocese of Bombay for alcohol and drug abuse”.

All details and evidence are in the forthcoming report.

1b. Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation enjoy your full support:

There is a Kripa centre in your Archdiocese of Ranchi.

1c. There is enough New Age on the Kripa website and blog, an excerpt of which I have sent you on May 13.

Fr. Joe Pereira promotes Iyengar Yoga. In my 2005 report I have shown that Fr. Joe Pereira himself admits that his master and yoga guru BKS Iyengar’s Kundalini Yoga/Tantra Yoga is occultism. 

This priest advocates the “removal of celibacy for priests”, and “teaching young priests not to be inhibited with the opposite sex and to acknowledge their sexuality through yoga”.

The priest rejects Church teaching on the use of condoms for AIDS prevention.
Again, in a report on Inculturation, Fr. Joe Pereira’s statement on the use of contraceptives, ‘Leave the choice of birth control to the conscience of the people’ shows that he does not accept the Church’s teachings on life.

Very often he brazenly lies as my report shows and he also falsifies Church teaching.

Now, after intensive research, I have updated the 10-page report on Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation to around 100 pages. It is difficult for me to be brief, either in my forthcoming report or in this letter to you, partly because of the extent of the errors being propagated, and partly because Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation do not stand alone in their errors.

1a. Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation enjoy the full support of the Archdiocese of Bombay:

Almost every issue of the Archdiocesan weekly, The Examiner, carries information about their activities.

All their activities are conducted in Catholic institutions. Kripa is “an Archdiocesan project”. Fr. Joe Pereira is
“consultant to the Archdiocese of Bombay for alcohol and drug abuse”.

All details and evidence are in the forthcoming report.

1b. Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation/WCCM enjoy the full support of Cardinals Ivan Dias and Oswald Gracias and at least two of the three auxiliary bishops of Bombay.

1c. There is enough New Age on the Kripa website and blog.

Fr. Joe Pereira promotes Iyengar Yoga. In my 2005 report I have shown that Fr. Joe Pereira himself admits that his master and yoga guru BKS Iyengar’s Kundalini Yoga/Tantra Yoga is occultism. 

This priest advocates the “removal of celibacy for priests”, and “teaching young priests not to be inhibited with the opposite sex and to acknowledge their sexuality through yoga”.

The priest rejects Church teaching on the use of condoms for AIDS prevention.
Again, in a report on Inculturation, Fr. Joe Pereira’s statement on the use of contraceptives, ‘Leave the choice of birth control to the conscience of the people’ shows that he does not accept the Church’s teachings on life.

Very often he brazenly lies as my report shows and he also falsifies Church teaching.

I had written to the Arch/Bishops of all the 14 other arch/dioceses where Kripa has been institutionalized by the Church, but no Bishop has responded. You must be aware that this will not discourage me from my ministry to create awareness about New Age error and expose it wherever it is propagated in the Church in India.

2a. Fr. Joe Pereira is the Indian coordinator for the
World Community for Christian Meditation {WCCM}, welcomed there by Ivan Cardinal Dias, and whose headquarters in India is in the Archdiocese of Bombay.

Almost every issue of the Archdiocesan weekly, The Examiner, carries information about their activities.

All their activities are conducted in Catholic institutions.

All their activities are supported by the Bishops of Bombay.

2b. Their “Christian Meditation”
is not Christian but
Hindu-Christian-BuddhistNew Age.

2c. There is hardcore
New Age on the WCCM website.

2d. The WCCM is closely associated with the Bede Griffiths Sangha, a New Age group which is again associated with the Ashrams movement.

2e. The WCCM is closely associated with the
Buddhist Christian Vedanta Network, another New Age group which is again connected with the Ashrams movement and with strongly and overtly New Age groups.

All details and evidence are in the forthcoming report.

You are aware by now that my research is done meticulously, leaving no room for error or surmise.

Fr. Joe Pereira and his Kripa Foundation and the World Community for Christian Meditation {WCCM} are New Age Trojan horses in the Indian Church, and pose a great spiritual danger to the Catholic Faith.

I would like to know what you intend to do, as Cardinal Archbishop of Bombay and Vice-President of the CBCI, about this most serious situation.

Would you like me to send you a copy of the report as soon as it is completed?

Yours obediently,

Michael Prabhu

Your Eminence,

In October 2005, when you were the Archbishop of Bombay, I had sent you my 96-page report on the New Age in the Catholic Ashrams movement
in India,
http://ephesians-511.net/articles_doc/CATHOLIC%20ASHRAMS.doc
but you had not acknowledged receipt of it.

I did not hear from you your response to the most serious issues that I had raised in that report.

The last 10 pages of that report were on
Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation, showing that both, the priest and his organization, promote New Age.

Now, after intensive research, I have updated the 10-page report on Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation to around 100 pages. It is difficult for me to be brief, either in my forthcoming report or in this letter to you, partly because of the extent of the errors being propagated, and partly because Fr.

FR. JOE PEREIRA TAKES “CATHOLIC YOGA” TO CANADA Building bridges between yoga and Catholicism

dtodd@png.canwest.com Douglas Todd, October 13, 2007, The Vancouver Sun 2007

http://www.canada.com/vancouversun/news/editorial/story.html?id=cd666bfc-9158-4e58-8cb3-47373f4fb793

and
http://www.kripafoundation.org/Newsroom_Newsletter.html : http://www.kripafoundation.org/images/nov07.pdf

EXTRACT: Despite his bold beliefs and actions, Pereira has managed to maintain strong backing for his work from key Catholic leaders in India, including Mumbai’s Cardinal Ivan Dias, who was in 2006 appointed prefect of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples.

The Catholic church has generally blessed Pereira’s yoga work as an example of “inculturation,” a Vatican-endorsed practice that encourages priests to adapt regional customs and religious rituals into Catholicism.

ii) When he recommended the WCCM, Fr. Joe Pereira has himself stated that you strongly back them:

“THE YIN AND THE YANG OF FATHER JOE”

The above is the title of a six page write-up by Anne de Braganca Cunha on Fr. Joe Pereira that was published in the February 2002 issue of HEALTH AND NUTRITION. I quote from it:

“In recent times, a man… was working as a civil engineer in Thailand… there he got in touch with these [Hindu] practices [through a Swami Satyanand], he left his profession, became a [Benedictine] priest… he did a lot of work in Eastern disciplines and particularly meditation. But when he joined the monastery, his novice master said, ‘Aha, this is from the East. It is satanic’. So in obedience he said ok but he kept on searching, he went back to the Fathers of the Church… a very special [one] was John Cassian… This study of John Cassian impressed the novice master so much… his abbot allowed him to go to Montreal where he started his first monastery of Christian meditation… and it has spread to 60 nations. You can also access it on the Net. It is very easy to remember: The World Community of Christian Meditators.org… You get meditations there. You get books of early Christian mystics and of contemplative prayer. This is something which
the Cardinal [His Eminence, Ivan
Dias]
is very keen on
starting all over the diocese
, because as he said,
there is too much of noise in the Church.”

1c. There is enough New Age on the Kripa website and blog.

Fr. Joe Pereira promotes Iyengar Yoga. In my 2005 report I have shown that Fr. Joe Pereira himself admits that his master and yoga guru BKS Iyengar’s Kundalini Yoga/Tantra Yoga is occultism.

ii) The Examiner, January 10, 2004: OFFICIAL. CHRISTIAN MEDITATION

In a preceding Official, I had expressed the need of furthering spirit of deep recollection-meditation-contemplation during our liturgical services so that the sense of the sacred could be radiated in and through them.

I had also announced the visit of
Fr. Laurence Freeman OSB., leader of the World Community for Christian Meditation who could introduce us to the theory and practice of such a meditation.

I am glad that Fr. Freeman will soon be in Mumbai and will conduct programmes on Christian Meditation for priests, religious, seminarians and the laity from January 12 to 18. The schedule has already been published in The Examiner.

I warmly encourage all Catholics in the archdiocese to participate in these courses…

Sd/- +Ivan Cardinal Dias, Archbishop of Bombay

iii) The Examiner, February 7, 2004: Letter to the editor. Fr. Laurence Freeman‘s visit to Mumbai [full page]

EXTRACT: In the past 10 years, Fr. Laurence has visited Mumbai and conducted a two-day session on Christian Meditation. This year however, thanks to the initiative taken by Fr. Joe Pereira of Kripa Foundation, and the personal interest of the Cardinal Archbishop of Bombay, Ivan Dias, his visit has become the starting point of renewal. …His week-long programme began with a discourse to the various Religious Congregations in the Diocese. About 300 religious attended this programme held at the Basilica of Our Lady of the Mount, Bandra… The next two days, Fr. Laurence went public, addressing congregations of lay people in two prominent parishes of the diocese after celebrating evening Mass. Since his visit was well publicised and had the personal backing of the Archbishop through a pastoral letter, these evening sessions drew people from places far beyond the confines of the parish itself. The effect this had was to have over 150 participants register for the 2-day intensive seminar to be held later during the week…

The Archbishop scheduled a special meeting of all the clergy of the diocese so that all his priests could avail themselves of the opportunity to be initiated into the practice of meditation… Fr. Laurence and the Archbishop had a long personal discussion on how this practice could be made available to smaller groups in parishes at the diocesan level. He was greatly encouraged by the support he received.

A one and a half day recollection to all the seminarians at the Diocesan Seminary which also caters to the surrounding regions meant that no section of the Church remained untouched by Fr. Laurence’s visit…

This we hope is the starting point to the Centre of our Being
which we are all called to make by Jesus…

A HUMBLE REQUEST TO BE HEARD

Dear Archbishop Thomas,

Thank you for your response which I appreciate as your present opinion of Fr. Joe Pereira’s work.

I have always highly valued your writings as coming from a sincere and knowledgeable Bishop, and I have quoted from them in my work to defend the Catholic Faith. However, it is possible that in certain areas you can still be uninformed.

My letter of May 14 to you was very clear that I have intensively researched the issue over a long period of time before most confidently writing to the Bishops who have opened their dioceses to Fr. Joe Pereira’s Kripa Foundation. The New Age evidence is overwhelming. Not only in his own statements and actions but in his links to the supposedly Catholic “World Community for Christian Meditation” which is in fact fully New Age. When I spoke to a theologian in Rome a few days ago about the WCCM, his immediate response was “Oh, they are New Age”.

You might have requested me for my report to examine the evidence for yourself, which is your duty as a pastor and a teacher. After that, if I cannot definitively prove my case, you are not only free to reject my report but you are also in duty bound to take suitable action against me and my ministry for submitting a false and mischievous report to you.

Yours obediently,

Dear Archbishop Vincent,

Thank you for your response which I greatly appreciate.

I had already written a similar letter to Bishop Thomas Dabre because the Vasai and Bombay centres were not only the earliest ones to be established, but also the Vasai Kripa centre was blessed by Bishop Thomas who also publicly felicitated Fr. Joe Pereira after he was awarded the Padma Shri. Bishop Thomas has so far not acknowledged my letters to him on this subject. However, I did receive from him, today, his kind invitation to attend his installation as Bishop of Poona on June 7.

I know that you are all very knowledgeable about many things, and we learn much from you all.

However, it is possible that in certain areas the Bishops can still be unaware or uninformed, and we laity can be of help.

In my letters of April 13, April 15 and April 20 and
May 14 to you, I stated that I have intensively researched the issue over a long period of time before most confidently writing to the Bishops who have opened their dioceses to Fr. Joe Pereira’s Kripa Foundation. The New Age evidence is overwhelming.

Dear Br. Mike Prabhu, Thanks for all the work you are doing to expose serious errors in the Indian Catholic Church – now actively mixing New age with Christian spirituality. 

I hope and pray that the Church listens (sometimes, today, i even wonder as to who the ‘Church’ really is due to all the apostasy that is happening – as Jesus prophesied long ago). 

One thing is clear – the march of many Catholics into Pentecostalism (even in Asia – after Latin America) is precisely because of these factors and the subtle attacks and sidelining of the Charismatic Renewal by many of the clergy within (they don’t like the noise, they say – why don’t they be honest and say, ‘we don’t like the praise of God’)

So, anyhow keep your eye focussed on Jesus – He marches on and His kingdom is spreading – happy are those who follow Him in spirit, truth and orthodoxy. Rgds, Binny BANGALORE

Dear Michael, thank you for sending a copy of the letter which you wrote to Card. Ivan Dias.
It is long and difficult to relate to the subject. I understand that you made specific research into the subject of “Christian Meditation”, and found that it is not truly Christian.

To succeed, if you permit me to advise you: write even repetitively what is wrong with the group which promotes so called “Christian Meditation”. You see human nature is lazy and in the clerical circles truly uninformed, not just about New Age, but all sorts of things which are affecting our Catholic people.
…We have to pray for Fr. Joe and aim at breaking the spiritual influence of Iyengar, then there is a chance for Fr Joe to understand, not before. His Eminence will not have any priest denounced unless there is a very indecent behaviour.
Send me your write up about Christian Meditation as presented in this world organization. I might get it to the Holy See. The Holy Fathers office sent me a letter to thank for my book which is in German, and the Holy Father has got it, I hope he finds time to read it.

Subject: The World Community for Christian Meditation (WCCM)
SUBJECT:

An Introduction to The World Community for Christian Meditation for Bishops, leaders and pastors by Laurence Freeman OSB

Your Eminence Cardinal Oswald Gracias,

I understand that you had granted an audience to Fr Laurence Freeman of the WCCM when he was in Bombay, recently, and he presented you with a copy of a paper prepared by him with the above title.

I also understand that during his meeting with you, he said that “the practice of YOGA IS NOT AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE PRACTICE OF THE DAILY DISCIPLINE OF CHRISTIAN MEDITATION.”

This is simply not true as I will demonstrate briefly [I have dozens of pages of such information] further below.

Whatever the aims of its Founder, Fr John Main, my enquiries reveal that today the WCCM — under the present Director — is New Age. Their meditation is not “Christian” as is claimed.

I admit that eminent Cardinals and Bishops have encouraged the WCCM but they may have done so without being aware of information that is easily available to internet users:

A.

-Theirs is really an “ecumenical” meditation, Fr Freeman himself admits on the WCCM web site.

-The WCCM web site FAQ admits that there is an “essential harmony” between Centering Prayer and their “Christian Meditation”. Centering Prayer is New Age according to eminent Catholic priests and ministries including EWTN.

-The WCCM web site records that they hold joint seminars and workshops with New Age personalities who use “tai chi, chi gung and Iyengar yoga”.

– The April 21-28, 1990, retreat “CHRISTIANS AND BUDDHISTS FROM FIVE CONTINENTS MEDITATE TOGETHER” was organized by Benedictine Father Lawrence Freeman

(http://www.ucanews.com/search/show.php?q=yoga&page=archives/english/1990/05/w4/tue/th0291.txt)

-Fr Freeman opened the November 1992 Manila First Asian Conference on Contemplative Christianity which “included workshops on… Zen… and yoga.” (http://www.ucanews.com/search/show.php?q=yoga&page=archives/english/1992/11/w2/mon/as6062.txt)

-Theirs is really a “Buddhist” meditation according to many eminent Catholic web sites.

-John Main, the Founder of “Christian Meditation” was influenced by an Indian yogi. Quote: “Fr. John Main, the inventor of “Christian Meditation”, a Benedictine monk, believed that he had not been successful with the “Ignatian method of meditation” and confided this to a Hindu Swami named Satyananda who taught him how to truly meditate”. Unquote

-The WCCM web site promotes the practice of yoga. Examples:

i) …the extraordinary research that shows practices such as meditation, tai chi and yoga are not only effective at eliciting spiritual growth… (http://www.wccm.org/newslist.asp?pagestyle=newslist&sqltype=current)

ii) A physical practice like yoga can help greatly with both posture and breathing. (http://www.wccm.org/item.asp?recordid=faqs05&pagestyle=default)

-The site itself and its links give plenty of evidence of their direct connection and active association with New Age groups.

B.

-Fr Joe Pereira of your Bombay Archdiocese is recognized as the leader of the WCCM in India. (http://www.wccm.org/newslist.asp?pagestyle=newslist&sqltype=current etc.).

-He wrote to us in 2006: “We also use this [yogic practice] for the WCCM, World community for Christian Meditation.”

-He and his Kripa Foundation — which promote the use of ‘Iyengar yoga’ (Iyengar also teaches kundalini yoga) — are officially recognized by the Archdiocese of Bombay and other dioceses in India; and they are the contacts for registration for “Christian Meditation” programmes conducted at Catholic institutions in the city of Mumbai.

The Examiner magazine reported that at the John Main seminar of the WCCM in Montreal “the day began with a practice of Yoga led by Fr. Joe Pereira”.

Dear Cardinal Gracias,

I think that the above is more than sufficient to show that Fr Laurence Freeman has misled you as he has misled many other eminent Church leaders all over the world.

I have several pages of neatly documented information that I can send you if you are interested in this issue which concerns the spiritual welfare of your people.

Many organizations appear to be Catholic, using Catholic terminology, incorporating Taizé prayer and Lectio Divina, and even the Holy Mass, but they are not. THAT IS THE ERROR OF NEW AGE.

I thought that you should be aware of my findings.

I am writing this to you also because you head the Board of Trustees of Kripa Foundation.

  1. Michael nothing is going to happen no matter what all you write about Kripa Foundation.I am given to understand that it is NO longer a Charitable Public trust but purely a money making machine where the funds are diverted to Archbishops house and yearly holidays for Joe. This priest who is nothing but Evil targets sick people especially who have property, drugs them at this Foundation & tries to usurp their properties. On his sermons, you will realize he only talks about property. Beware!

  2. Michael not sure about the identity part but whoever has written it is very true. In the Examiner, you will see all gibberish written by Kripa Foundation. Any human who detoxifies himself through food and exercise will become normal. It is definitely NOT Yoga that Joe Pereira tries to falsely project to everyone.

  3. This Ashram is an Evil liar. It is supposed to be an NGO but people are charged around 22K for 3 months for treatment.Where does all the funds go to?

  4. Yoga is demonic and so is this Yogic priest, Its amazing that Ivan Card and Oswald Card have given into all this mess and ruined the Catholic Church in Asia. Till date the funds of Kripa Foundation are NOT disclosed to the Laity.

  5. Kripa F is a cheat and the priest running it is the devil in disguise, robbing our catholic brethren!

  6. There is no difference between Asharam Bapu and Joe Pereira!

  7. Michael in time to come, you will be very clear why Ivan Cardinal Dias backed this demonic priest and his circus acts! It is more personal than 3D!
