No. It's more technically a "new age" organization focused on the 'Electric or Atomic Age' established in early 20th century, targeting Christians here in the West. However, a major Hindu branch does accept it and sanctions it as a continuation of their lineage of Swamis. If we delve more into this, hypothesis is Jesus spent 'lost years' in Hindu temples practicing yoga science, so ancient Vedic knowledge / esoteric Christianity / Islam mysticism - it's all the same. We all have the same brain/cerebral/spinal system and function the same way - thus how consciousness expands within our physical framework is universal we find. Science more and more supports what mystics claim using different names (maya/Satan) about the unreal or illusionary/false nature (holographic universe) of the world we see around us. It's more a divisive game of semantics I see. I did not have the "faith" until personal experience(s) in the subject. Before that it was anecdotal and very "take their word" type of thing. If it comes up, I bring up my strong position based on my experiences - and I stand by it.
