But what IS Subud? pdf, html

Looking from the outside, Subud resembles a cult or a religion. While we profess to be open and individualistic, the reality is that Subud culture is heavily influenced by Islamic and Javanese beliefs, and conservative ideas. This article explores the mismatch between what we say we are, and how we behave. It questions some of the rules by which we operate, and asks; can we begin to express what Subud is, that is congruent with who we are?
