I actually went to the Boston Vedanta Society for over a year and I cannot recommend this place as a spiritual home in any way.
I am disabled and was bullied by a volunteer while waiting for my ADA Paratransit ride home. I spoke to another volunteer who told me the swami had personally ordered this guy to run me off the front steps. "Nobody is to be on the steps after the doors are closed, no exceptions.'
I e-mailed the swami and he actually justified the bullying on the grounds that I had a "pattern" of waiting for my ride on the front steps, even though he knew I hadn't found out about this discriminatory rule until several days after the bullying happened.
The following week, I was run out of the community altogether, seeminly as a direct result of reporting the bullying.
So we're talking about a "spiritual" community where disabled people are not alllowed to wait for their ride home on the front steps of the building- the swami actually condones bulllying in the name of enforcing this rule.
