An article by Be Scofield has just been written entitled, The New Predator: Spiritual Teacher Padma Aon Prakasha Accused of Abuse.
Pierre and I do not support this article and did not give permission for Be Scofield to use parts of our testimony in it.
It is a radically sensationalized article with no care or love shown to any of the victims or Padma himself. It is an article of grandiose attack of Padma and it does not explain anything real about the ‘why’ the “victims” were often open to and willing to receive Padma’s abuse.
While the quotes in the article are truths that were shared by the victims, and I am not disputing that the article gives some factual information about what the victims experienced, I feel the article’s intention is to glorify another cult story and attempting to pull Padma down and seek out ‘justice’, which is just disguised as revenge.
Both Pierre and I spoke with Be Scofield within the first 7 hours of the article’s publication. We asked her how she could have used parts of our testimony without our permission, and she told us that a journalist can use any piece of writing that has been already made public.
Nothing healing can come out of an article like this. It is an unethical article and takes away from the loving intention that many of us “victims” came out publicly for. As much as Pierre and I avoided this type of article coming forth, by not participating with journalists who we felt lacked integrity, we cannot control what others choose to do with their free will.
