Namaskar Gator,

Once again you make me laugh. <img src=" title="Laughing" /> You touch on a subject which is worth mentioning. Many people point to Bikram and complain about his methods. Yet, you can learn constructive lessons by observation of Bikram.

1. He instills deep loyalty in his students

2. He lives a life of luxury

3. He is very goal oriented

Whether we love Bikram or not, you must admit he is unique. If he hurts his students, they volunteer to be hurt. They are consenting adults. If you go to a class with Bikram, expect him to insult you, yell at you, jump on you, and treat you like a dog.

People have a love / hate relationship with tyrants, but alas it is not for us to complain. People line up to willingly be abused and we cannot stop them because they love it.

Om Shanti,
