I was president of a sai center in Bogota, the capital. I resigned last October due to all that is happening. The organization has a lot of problems within its board of directors. I know Leonardo Gutter personally (he is in Argentina and is chairman for all of Latin America ), I met him in India and on several occasions when he visited Colombia. I don’t know to what extent he is innocent in all of this, nor is it my business to judge him. I would like to see the exchange of correspondence you had with him, if you can, send it to me. I was the first one to desert in Colombia and the bomb spread everywhere since supposedly my total surrender to the organization was known all over the country. The center to which I belonged has weakened due to this and several people have parted from it. The organization is covering it all up and have kept it from spreading. My mother lives in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla, USA and has deserted after being a devotee for 11 years. The difficult part here in our countries is that the information does not reach us in Spanish and we are very slow to understand what is happening on global terms. Furthermore we easily become fanatic with any guru or a teacher in particular.
