“The Spiritual Exercises of ECK [ECKANKAR, The Path of Spiritual Freedom] build your faith in the Spirit of God and Its power to do miracles.”
—Harold Klemp, How to Survive Spiritually in Our Times, Mahanta Transcripts, Book 16, Pg. 10
“The spiritual exercises differ from prayer. The spiritual exercises are a way for an individual to raise his own state of consciousness.
Prayer is generally used to tell God what to do—how to make your life better or how to improve somebody else’s life. Prayer is also misused as a thought force, directed at another person to change his state of consciousness. This is a form of black magic, and it’s wrong.
Most people would be shocked to hear their religious practices referred to in this way, but ECK is also an educational path that teaches what happens when you break the divine laws, even unknowingly. Ignorance is no excuse; the penalty must be paid.”
—Harold Klemp, Cloak of Consciousness, Mahanta Transcripts, Book 5, Pg. 72
“When you step onto the path to God and you begin looking for that secret path to heaven, the way will be opened for you. And the way lies through the Spiritual Exercises of ECK.
The Spiritual Exercises of ECK give us confidence in ourselves. We learn that we are Soul, we are eternal. Then we know with certainty that we live forever, that death cannot destroy us.”
—Harold Klemp, The Spiritual Exercises of ECK, Pg. 3
