How religious cults recruit and brainwash potential victims
Below is the link to a short but very interesting video on how "Gurus" and "Godmen" create a band of fanatical and zombie like followers.

The reaction of one person after watching just a couple of minutes of this video was, "this is just like what the Art of Living people do !!!"
Nice video... all religions do this, but to "sex it up", you need these new age yoga and spiritual gurus .:P
Unfortunately, it is far too easy to persuade people into following a charismatic leader. Usually, when someone is depressed or feeling as if they are outside the mainstream, they are susceptible to promises that would normally be suspect.
