'Under Swami's spell': 14 tourists claim sexual assault by guru at Thai yoga retreat

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/sep/07/under-swamis-spell-14-tourists-claim-sexual-assault-by-guru-at-thai-yoga-retreat

"The 14 women and two men claim that for 15 years the retreat facilitated sexual assault, rape and misogynistic teachings, allegedly “brainwashing” hundreds of women into having sex with the Swami – whose real name is Narcis Tarcau – in the name of helping them achieve enlightenment . . . "

The linked article refers to this site: https://www.agamayoga.com

"Agama" etc. has been mentioned once in this forum:

Personal FB page here  http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001041826284
shows that he is FB friends with Ross Haven, Agama Yoga Mexico (a an alleged tantric THB network - the head is facing charges of THB in Romania), The Tara Yoga Centre (UK and Ireland based subsidiary of Romanian tantric yoga school and THB network MISA), Deutsche Akademie Traditionelles Yoga (German based subsidiary of Romanian tantric yoga school and THB network MISA), these are just what I see from a preliminary glance.

More about the Romanian connection:

Tarcau, who is from Romania, set up Agama in Koh Phangan after leaving Rishikesh in India when it is understood his visa was revoked . Tarcau had studied under Gregorian Bivolaru, another Romanian guru who was on a publicised mission to sleep with 1,000 virgins as the path to enlightenment. Bivolaru went on the run in 2004 after being sentenced for having sex with an underage girl, was arrested in Paris in 2016 and was later released. He remains on Europol’s most wanted list, accused of human trafficking.

Gregorian Bivolaru has been mentioned several times here in this forum, in two different topics:

Biven Momonta: "Ancient Russian Wisdom" (27 hits on Bivolaru):

Dear Mods,

You did not just move the topic, you also changed the subject heading that I used.

I understand that you likely did this in order to clearly identify the jerk and the pseudonym he used as a rapist.  However, the heading I used was deliberate- I was outraged that this jerkface a-hole appropriated the name of an important Hindu saint.

Please add quotation marks around the name he has adopted - "Swami Vivekananda Saraswati"

Thanks, ska
