The last part concludes that scamgong is an art of selling placebo and meaningless fake achievements to people while dragging and distracting them as far as possible from actual cultivation and spiritual practice.
Now that we laid the foundation of the topic, we can go deeper into it. The scamgong is not only what is extremely obvious non-working and on the surface. There are different levels and tiers to scamgong. I have seen through multiple systems and teachings, and scamgong levels varied from one to another. Sometimes you could even stumble upon a hidden gem under the pile of rubbish.
To evaluate the practices, you need to have something to compare. Just because something is working to an extent does not mean it is good. To honestly evaluate any system, you have to reach the top. Most people never get there; being stuck like a frog in the well at the bottom levels, they cannot see the system's limitations and flaws. They start deluding themselves, projecting the desired outcome of teaching into reality.
Discussing the scamgong, we are more interested in showing the principles rather than bashing or exposing particular individuals. Not only are there countless scamgong practitioners, and many more will be coming in the future. There are apparent scamgong teachers with millions of followers publicly talking nonsense about spiritual cultivation and ancient arts.
They are not worth discussing whenever they have millions or thousands of followers and students. Scamgong Master scams students not because he is some unique being or a rare animal in the divine garden. He can do it because the conditions for the scamgong exist.
Those conditions and principles are common among many. I will discuss some core principles in this article.
