Australian spiritual guru teaches ancient Indian philosophy

PTI, India
Aug. 8, 2004 • Sunday August 8, 2004

New Delhi, Aug. 8 (PTI): Interesting, it might sound. But Indians will get a lesson or two in their own ancient spiritualism by an Australian.

Lee James, who also dons the role of a psychotherapist, actor and hostage negotiator, started as a stage and TV actor but soon got drawn into ancient Indian spirituality and with time moulded it in his own style of “spiritual counselling.”

“India has a rich spiritual history and this is the country’s gift to the world. However, ironically it takes a foreigner to teach it to the people here,” James, who is associated with the Prajapita Brahma Kumari Ishwariya Vidyalaya, told PTI.

Addressing a gathering yesterday on ‘Rendezvous with Self,’ organised by the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of India, James, who counselled trauma victims of 9/11 attack, also narrated his experiences during the sessions.

“We felt the extent of the hatred and frustration of some communities at that time, a feeling of badly done by,” he said. “It was a profound test for the world to do something good, but we didn’t have the strength to pass it,” James, who is one of the seven members in an International Team of Trauma Psychiatrist, said.

James, who has played a role in release of hostages several times, declined to comment on the present Indian hostage crisis in Iraq.

“I’m not a saviour of the world,” he said, adding that where attitude towards foreign spiritual leaders are concerned, the “Indian society is still tight.”
