Kapil Gupta – Siddha Performance

Who is Kapil Gupta?

Kapil Gupta is an “executive coach” who left the field of medicine, to give out life advice to others. Kapil was in the field of medicine for over 20 years. Kapil Gupta was a pathologist and used to be affiliated with Atrium Health-Cabarrus. He graduated with honors in 1995 receiving his medical degree from St. George’s University School of Medicine – a Caribbean Medical school in West Indies, Grenada. Kapil then did his internship at West Virginia University, then did his residency at Vidant Medical Center/East Carolina University, and did his fellowship at Ohio State University Hospital. He is currently licensed to practice medicine in North Carolina and Ohio.

It’s very likely Kapil saw making easy money from giving out life advice to be much more comfortable and much less effort than working long hours of being a doctor for probably less than what he makes now from his overpriced coaching and products.
Kapil originally born in India and raised in Toronto, Canada and then moved to work in Concord, North Carolina and now lives in Florida, Palm Beach Gardens.
Kapil Gupta was born in August 9th 1969. Kapil Gupta is married to Aradhana Patel Gupta who he met in med school and has 2 sons – Aman Gupta and Abhay Gupta, who are both golfers.

Kapil’s websites and Twitter:

https://www.siddhaperformance.com/
https://twitter.com/KapilGuptaMD – current twitter
https://twitter.com/KapilGuptaMDpvt – his private twitter with his loyal 30 followers.

First of all, understand this isn’t really a critique of his work as much as it is of him and his grifting. You may find some value in his work if you haven’t already heard all this basic stuff before. The most common reason why some are so impressed by his work is because this sort of stuff is so secluded. But what kapil has done is taken a bunch of work from the likes of Jed Mckenna, Advaita Vedenta, ancient zen masters and mixed them all together and put it in his own words.

Kapil’s products:
Kapil sells a bunch of approx 5-10 minutes short podcasts for $500 EACHhttps://kapilgupta.podia.com
Kapil sells a monthly subscription for $1000
And most wild of all is Kapil asks for SIX FIGURE pledges to a category of his content.

Read his https://www.siddhaperformance.com/about/
Siddha Performance is the only company in the world devoted to achieving world class performance through mind transcendence.”
it sounds like a Résumé/Curriculum vitae (CV). He’s clearly trying to portray a particular unique impressive image of himself to the reader.
His website also includes the typical marketing strategy of having testimonials (and we all know testimonials nearly always only show the good side). Also, the testimonials he has displayed is an extremely low sample size.
Kapil claims most of his clients are world elites but no one really knows if this is true and it hasn’t been proven yet.

Kapil’s own words:
“The ultimate marketing comes from not wanting to sell at all”
-“It’s about recognizing that the thing you’re selling is invaluable and placing any price at all on it is an insult”
-“All marketing is a scam because the people doing it are doing it for the sole purpose of selling”
-“If you have something truly valuable, you won’t have to resort to trying to convince someone to buy it”

Kapil correctly points out other scams but don’t let it fool you.

Kapil is right that nearly all other self-help gurus, spiritual gurus, motivational speakers and the likes are all scammers but don’t let that fool you into think he’s any different in that regards. Just because he has hundreds or thousands of free public discourses that doesn’t mean much. It’s no different to the self-help youtubers who post hundreds of self-help videos while having their paid courses in the description. Kapil’s work is a bunch of new age repackaging of advaita vedanta (a hindu sadhana), previous indian spiritual gurus (such as Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, Jiddu Krishnamurti, UG Krishnamurti, Osho etc.) and ancient chinese/japanese-style writings without attribution. Now the stuff that Kapil is saying isn’t widely reiterated in the self-help/spiritual space, but nonetheless he’s still reiterating stuff other people have taught (not that there’s anything wrong with that). And I will even say that I enjoy the long audio podcast format (I’m referring to the hour long free podcasts with people such as Moe Abdou, NOT the $500 several minute long short podcasts) of some of his talks but he could at least give attribution to where it’s due. Kapil’s paid content is basically more words expanding on his free content. If you ever think about paying for it, go read all of Jed McKenna’s books first (it’s basically the same stuff but for free or less money).

  • Kapil’s followers think that he has transcended his own mind while Kapil constantly shows frustration at questions in twitter spaces and tells stories about how he gets mad in situations such as when his son came 2nd in a gold tournament that he felt his son was screwed over by a referee.
  • Kapil’s twitter following grew marginally after Naval Ravikant did a podcast with him. It seems most of Kapil’s followers are people who follow Naval and don’t realize that Naval pretty much goes against the very things Kapil says, as he constantly hands out prescriptions as advice. And at the same time, since a lot of people trust Naval they seem to also use that as reassurance that Kapil is legit.
  • If only 22 people on Earth are Serious enough for Truth. And Kapil has hundreds of devotees pledging him $1000 per month. Then, statistically his premium subscribers are a hopeless lot.
  • Kapil’s Marketing trick: Teasing is more effective than Promising!
    If you tease an event, then more people will attend than if you promise it. Kapil’s followers probably believe they are graced with his good mood whenever he does a Q&A.
  • Kapil renames ‘technique’ to ‘system’ and then admits that techniques/systems work extremely well.
  • If you look through Kapil’s previous tweets from both his current account and old account you can find that he was spamming his discourses to hundreds of famous people – from indian actors and actresses, to elite Tennis players like Federer and Nadal. He was even asking Tony Robbins to retweet a link to one of his discourse. Why would someone who claims his work isn’t for the masses do all that?
  • There are a few things that are either unverifiable/unfalsifiable and Kapil simply dodges that by claiming people have “truth receptors”

Kapil’s marketing

Kapil said in one of his direct truths that he doesn’t create catchy headlines yet almost every discourse title pretty much seems like it’s trying to be catchy. And you can tell in the discourses that the poetic style of writing sounds so cosmetic. You can also compare the 2 pictures below to see how he dressed up smartly and took a nice picture to support his marketing. There’s nothing wrong with marketing but like kapil says himself, you wouldn’t need to do any convincing if your product was truly great.

Actual Kapil:

The face when you make a fake billboard for your website, but only have one photo of yourself to use…

How Kapil lives

-Kapil doesn’t exercise or meditate and barely socializes.
Now there’s nothing wrong with not doing any of those but it just adds up to the whole anti-self-improvement attitude.

Here’s one of Kapil’s discourse – https://www.kapilguptamd.com/2016/06/01/meditation-is-not-for-the-meditator/
Kapil: “If you are looking to improve your health, why would you want to improve the health of a body that is going to absolutely, certainly, and undeniably die?”
I understand Kapil’s point but from where he’s coming from it sounds like he’s trying to use it as a coping mechanism for not doing any exercise.

Kapil’s son has a coach

Kapil’s son Aman Gupta is a decent young golf player. And Kapil’s followers immediately think oh that must mean Kapil’s wisdom “works”, while not realizing that Aman has his own coach – Sean Foley Performance (Priced at $42,000 for non-club members and $25,000 for club members) and that coach was Tiger Wood’s former coach. So if you’re wondering where Kapil’s money goes, now you have an idea. Aman is practicing his swing technique with his $1000/hr golf coach. Meanwhile, Kapil is soliciting private discourse subscribers. Coincidence?

Kapil has tweeted:
-Much of the hiring of “coaches” is, fundamentally, an attempt to Buy Success. And such things cannot be bought.
-In order to become a Legend. Two forms of protection are required. A protection from instructors and coaches. And a protection from one’s own beliefs and opinions.

There is a potential business strategy in that instead of trying to get a couple hundred bucks out of a few hundred/thousand people, it’s much more money to get a million bucks out of a single/couple multi-millionaire/billionaire. It’s an easy cop-out for Kapil to say hes not trying to convince anyone of anything and that he’s just stating truth but if you look at his previous sites, the attempt to convince is blatant (yes humans technically can’t be convinced since they’ve already made up their minds on things but it is possible to persuade/indoctrinate people who are sitting on the fence for certain things). Also it can be both – convincing and truth (you can attempt to convince someone understand a truth). It’s an easy cop-out for KG to say “money = sincerity” which regardless of being true, can easily be used as a defense to make money from his customers. Most self-help gurus have this scheme where they sell one thing for a ridiculous amount of money which is marketed towards rich people to grab huge amounts of money, and then sell other things for less money which is marketed towards the average person who can afford it – which can be seen with Kapil’s 6 figure pledges and $500 direct truth podcasts. Even though he’s saying it’s because it shows a level of seriousness and sincerity, it’s still indeed getting big money from the rich. So there’s a clear potential ulterior motive here. Kapil once said he’s trying to figure out the way to get the most for doing the least work – after hearing that, him setting up 6-figure pledges is unsurprising. All it takes is one rich person to pledge 6 figure amount and Kapil is settled for some years.

This is just a straight up prescription by Kapil

https://web.archive.org/web/20201205143503/https://www.kapilguptamd.com/2016/07/18/the-incredible-90-second-stress-cure-for-world-class-executives/ If it was anyone else who would have advised to tell your mind to chill out, Kapil would have ridiculed it and dismissed it as a prescription so I personally think some prescriptions, even for the mind, are totally effective. Things like get enough sun, exercise etc. Seeking truth can be a prescription but if done sincerely can be very effective.

It would be a cop-out to just say that was a few years ago and that he has deleted that discourse and that he is now a lot different to how he was a few years ago. Sure that might be true but he also claimed he has been on this truth devotion for over 20 years and was seen tweeting about the stuff back in 2012. You may also be totally different a few years from now and change some of your views which is completely understand but in this space of giving out advice and acting like whatever you say is truth, it shows your thoughts have not completely matured if they’re changing.

There’s way too much tweets to show everything so here’s just a few things.

Kapil’s book

Kapil’s latest book “Wisdom For A King” was priced at $250. It is 68 pages with a bunch of lines with only a few words each, with triple-spacing in between each line and quintuple spacing for new paragraphs. Sure more words/pages doesn’t make a book better but the book is literally a re-skinned perspective of his other work. There is nothing new. It is the exact same format as his “A Master’s Secret Whispers:” book which is just $10. And it pretty much mimics the information of that book just as a different perspective. There are no new unique insights. The message is the same across all his content. After a while of exposing yourself to Kapil’s work, after you’ve consumed all the main points. There’s really no point keeping up with the latest discourse. Kapil of course tries to keep his followers engaged with his work by preaching about repeated exposure but all one needs to really do to repeatedly expose themselves is to have a summary of the main teachings and go over those instead of loading up Kapil’s website every day to check if there’s a new discourse.

Common trap that Kapil followers fall into

A common trap to fall into while being new to Kapil’s work is thinking this “Truth” stuff is so awesome and you basically feel a sense of pleasure and think you’re lucky to find such wisdom. Some years later you’ll realize that Kapil’s work basically became your new “self help” even though he’ll continuously preach against self-help and spirituality. Just because his work may have helped you don’t be so attached to it – understand that there are many people who were helped by even the biggest fake self-help gurus. So what it if helped you then cool but understand just because it helped you that doesn’t mean you should worship him or his work and go round posting “wow this is such great wisdom” that’s how cults form.

If you really enjoy his work then keep reading/listening to the free stuff. If the hundreds of public discourses did not help you reach ultimate freedom and arrival then what makes you think extra material will (perhaps because the free public discourses helped you a bit, you then think the paid stuff will help even more – this is the basic way of thinking that all those self-help consumers fall into). If you really crave the paid content then you can find a few people on his subreddit that offer it ALL for around $20. Some people there are charging way more and they’ll use whatever excuse about “sincerity” just like Kapil does but don’t ever pay more than $50. These grifters from the Kapil subreddit will charge thousands of bucks claiming that paying $20 doesn’t show the same desperation – but then who’s to say that spending $1000 or $2000 will be enough to show desperation either? Kapil offers a much higher price for his work, claiming that’s the amount for sincerity. So it’s all pretty subjective as to what is too little and what’s a good amount that shows sincerity – when really it’s also all relative to an individual (for instance $2000 is barely anything to a multi-millionaire).

Money as sincerity
There’s the argument that it’s like Placebo where one perceives the paid content as precious and follows the advice and becomes extremely rich or at peace or whatever it is, whereas the other will not change anything, as he isn’t valuing that content as wisdom. Paying hundreds COULD make someone feel like they can’t allow that money to go to waste and therefore be driven to accomplish whatever set goal. The problem with that kind of thinking is that a few years later or perhaps even a few months later, they can lose all that drive and get complacent then start to fall back downhill. Also then again there are people who pay hundreds or thousands to some self-help program or pick up artist boot-camp and still don’t make any change – therefore paying money doesn’t guarantee sincerity, at most it may slightly increase it though it may not even do that either.

Marketing 101
It’s a common marketing strat to have an incredibly ridiculously high price for a product then put it on a huge discount and the discount price is still extremely high but a lot of consumers don’t realize it and think it’s a massive bargain. Kapil does this with his “siddha arrival” pledges where at times he made it 7 figures then brought it back down to 6 figures.
Another common marketing strat is to make the product seem extremely scarce and as generally speaking people tend to perceive scarce things as more valuable than things in abundance. Kapil does this by claiming that he doesn’t just accept anyone who is rich and claiming that he has rejected some rich applicants and tries to make it seem that only those who are incredibly rare individuals get accepted and so makes it seem like some sort of secret club to get consumers more intrigued.
Obviously he is differentiating himself from the rest of the self help industry which he also basically belongs to. Of course, he would criticize all others in his market space and say he is the only real deal. This is marketing 101. He is not selling kitchen cabinets.

If Kapil doesn’t care about making money from truth then why did he tweet this – https://mobile.twitter.com/KapilGuptaMD/status/1480569354903244805
he claims he hired a team of attorneys to prosecute people who resell his work (most likely a scare tactic). Let me make it absolutely clear there’s nothing wrong in wanting to make money (as Kapil says there’s no right or wrong) and Kapil is free to sell his stuff at whatever price he wishes to do so – but I’m just pointing out how it’s basically a rip-off and you can find almost identical information elsewhere for free, and in fact even in Kapil’s free content.

Kapil Gupta’s main target

KAPIL’S MAIN TARGET FOR SCAMMING ARE SUCCESSFUL UNHAPPY PEOPLE. These people feel as though they’re missing something in life or they’re unhappy or feel empty, and they’ve read a little bit of Kapil’s work and now they feel there’s a way out of the misery and at the same time they’re wealthy enough to dish out huge amounts of money and so they take the chance with Kapil. There is a way out of the misery but paying Kapil won’t guarantee it. There’s a simple reason why people keep some content behind a paid wall – they want money. If they really had other people’s best interest or wanted to help others or was just doing it solely to express “truth” then they wouldn’t keep any content behind a paid wall. And the first thing these grifters will reply saying is they’re doing it for both X reason and for money – which is understandable if you’re selling a book for a normal price but different when selling exorbitant courses and products.

Kapil Gupta is a good salesman. He exploits the notion of “seriousness” for money and cultish purposes. Other than that, I’m pretty fond of his perspective on things, though I’ve heard all this stuff before from the work of ancient masters. However, from what I’ve noticed in his twitter spaces is that he appreciates the questions that parrot his teachings, the most. The question could be a regurgitated version of Kapil’s POV, and he would then thank the interviewer for how honest and serious they are. Also his idea for dedication to a craft can be misleading. I know it’s just one way to live “Mushin” (mental state of no-mind), but if you don’t want to do anything, that would be a dead end. He speaks about what it is that you cannot imagine yourself not becoming. What if that thing is nothing? And what if that thing you’re imagining is part of the manufactured self? That could very well be plausible. And then you waste away your life working hard towards that thing, fooling yourself that it’s not “hard work” because it’s the thing you’ve always wanted, etc.

Kapil says he target is truly sincere serious people but if that was the case why would he be spamming amazon links to his books to people like Nick Cannon. Does he really think Nick Cannon is a truly sincere serious person? Does he even know Nick Cannon on a deep enough level to able to read into his sincerity?

Since Kapil is still fairly unknown in comparison to others in the same space, it’s very likely that most people viewing this will be Kapil followers and therefore post comments in his defense. If any of them were actually devoted to seeing truth then they’d be able to see the money hungry side of Kapil and once again there’s no right or wrong to that, but I’m just posting this so people can be aware before making their decision of paying anything to him.

Verdict: Manipulative Sales Man

Kapil Gupta tries to portray himself as someone who knows more than anyone else about life while not giving direct clear attributes to where he learned much of the stuff he talks about. Kapil tries to make money from selling "truth" in various forms from paid discourses to several minute long podcasts and more. His free content is okay but I would strongly advise everyone to avoid paying for any of the extra stuff.

  1. Kapil is interesting to the masses because they’ve never heard most of the stuff he says before, and so many enjoy a lot of his material and find it quite lucid but there’s a lot of discrepancies that would make an open-minded person scratch their head.

    Kapil says all coaches/advisors are useless but then how are people supposed to develop or gain high level skill or knowledge in a time relevant manner?
    Kapil claims that drug users are the lowest level people on earth yet he’s never tried drugs or psychedelics – so how would he know the truth about it? I’m not for it like Terrence Mckenna and Dennis Mckenna, but I can admit that I do not know as I’ve not tried it.
    It’s interesting how people can have completely different narratives of the same person. For instance, Kapil tells one narrative of Tiger Woods, Chris Williamson has another narrative for Tiger. This is why as Kapil says himself, you shouldn’t trust anything until you’ve verified it to be trustworthy yourself.

    Kapil contradicts himself a lot. For e.g. He has said numerous times that he is not at all motivated by money. He says the only reason he charges a lot of money for his teachings is so that only the very serious and truly deserving end up with access to his teachings. He has also said many times he doesn’t care if people end up benefiting from his teachings or if they don’t. He simply shares the truth with the world because he has no choice as it’s his calling in life. So then how does a man who doesn’t care about money, doesn’t believe in right or wrong, creates content only because he cannot help himself, doesn’t care about whether his students imbibe his teachings or waste the opportunity goes after people with a team of attorneys for getting free access to his teachings? The answer is simple. He’s lying there. Also lawyers are also interesting partners for someone committed to Truth. And Kapil actually once said that when one has to have the truth he will do anything he can to get it. You think he’d have some respect for those that had enough disdain for society’s rules to find ways to get it even though it’s criminal.

    As others in the comments have mentioned, Kapil deleted a bunch of tweets, this is one of them https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Flw6HI9XoAE_V30?format=png
    It does make me wonder if he’s sincere and honest as he portrays to be, and doesn’t care what others of him like he claims then why delete a bunch of tweets from before?

    bit.ly/3vh4mYQ – A Kapil discourse.
    “The purer the Art, The more that each “sale” Brings a measure of pain. In some ways, The “sale” Is an insult To the Art.”
    If you’re not selling it for money and the art is so pure why sell it in the first place?

    Kapil: Krishnamurti was a man desperate to be heard.
    Also Kapil: [Sends a bunch of tweets to Elon] https://pbs.twimg.com/media/FGQJLEQVIAQCbEx?format=jpg
    To be clear, the following actions:
    Tweeting, Hosting Clubhouse sessions, Writing discourses, Publishing podcasts, Publishing books, and Hosting Twitter Spaces sessions, are apparently not done by Kapil because he’s desperate to ‘be heard’.

    In one of Kapil’s Clubhouse sessions, a very sincere guy who was desperate to learn from Kapil told him how he had transcribed all of Kapil’s podcasts, interviews and even typed out all articles from http://kapilguptamd.com in order to better understand his teachings. He said while he had greatly benefited from Kapil’s free stuff, he felt he had hit a wall in his pursuit for the truth. He said how he was sad that he might never learn the truth as he feels he will never be able to become wealthy enough to be able to afford Kapil’s teachings. He asked Kapil if getting wealthy is the only way to get access to his private
    teachings. To which Kapil told the guy that he seems very genuine and sincere. However, Kapil said straight to the guy’s face that unless he can afford to pay for his private teachings, he is afraid the guy will have to continue to do with the free stuff Kapil continues to put out. Kapil wished the guy good luck and took the next question! So much for not caring about making money and repeatedly saying he wants to teach the sincerest and the rarest of rare humans!

    Perhaps this post (if others hadn’t) will serve as a wake-up call to those giving money to Kapil.

  2. 1. A remarkable skill of fake gurus is their ability to brainwash their audience while warning them of brainwashing. Because the victim wants to believe in the words of the manipulator.
    2. Kapil uses images for free from Pixabay, lol I’m not surprised as Kapil has never shied away from profiteering from other people’s works and ideas.
    3. Simon Cowell made an entire career from criticizing such ‘singers’.
    Kapil made an entire career from criticizing spirituality, self-help, those who practice to improve their skills, hard work, etc.
    4. Kapil be like: how can I paraphrase the same points in hundreds of different poetic ways using different examples to keep my followers chase after the latest discourse. Don’t chase pleasure or prescriptions, chase my work instead.
    5. I’m looking at that kapil tweet to Lady Gaga it’s pretty funny – If only Osho were alive then he would be applauding Kapil’s work according to Kapil. I’m sure all those famous people Kapil tweeted decided to read Kapil’s article among the millions of messages they get.
    6. Kapil deleted a tweet where he said that Alex Honnold and Nima Purja were examples of Sincerity and Seriousness. Clearly he’d spent the weekend watching ‘Free Solo’ and ‘14 Peaks’ documentaries (both are great imo, btw). He probably deleted the tweet because made it too obvious he spends his time watching Netflix.
    7. The easiest fastest way to make money is you find just one sucker and empty his/her bank balance. Kapil has realized this. To support his kids golf lifestyle one has to charge his clients very high.
    8. “People know what they’re paying for” – People have subscriptions to useless things that they think are great, so much of the time. Also people paying huge amounts for something doesn’t make it inherently valuable. There’s a difference between inherent value and subjective perceived value.
    9. “He gives out free content” – The free content is to entice towards the paid content. Giving out free content is no different to the self-help YouTubers giving out free content while having the paid stuff in the description. It’s a way to entice the viewer to become more interested in the content creator’s work which then makes them more likely to buy paid content.
    10. “He’s not forcing you to pay” – Doesn’t matter if he’s not forcing people to pay, he’s trying to convince (as shown by his tweets and the marketing on his site) them to. Many rip-offs do not “force” people to pay. The point is he uses deceptive marketing.
    11. “His work has helped some people” – Just because something helped someone doesn’t mean it can’t be a scam overall to the majority of consumers. Using the same logic, self-help gurus may not have helped most people but they’ve helped some.
    12. “You don’t understand how businesses work” – Just because something is a business it doesn’t mean it can’t be a scam. Not all businesses charge way more money than for value’s worth – that’s the scam aspect.
    13. “He tells people not to take his word and follow him” – Asking everyone not to follow him is not much different to the self-help YouTubers that recommend their viewers to stop watching their content knowing that most viewers will still come back and think of the YouTuber as even more genuine and good-intentioned.
    14. “He’s upfront about the fees” – Being upfront about fees doesn’t mean you can’t scam. Many PUAs and self-help gurus are upfront about their fees too. It’s not wrong to charge for your work but the point is it’s a rip-off if you charge a massive amount for something that can be found elsewhere for much less.

    Genuine seekers of the truth: 5 out of 8 billion (maybe +2 or 3 more).
    Sincere individuals giving 6 figure pledges to Kapil: ~30
    And if the 5 genuine seekers are Kapil, Kapil’s wife, Kapil’s 2 sons and Naval then lol.
    I wonder who’s he’s tweeting for when there’s only like 1 or 2 people out of every hundred million who are sincere enough for his message. What are the chances they’re going to be on twitter? What are the chances they’re going to be on twitter reading his tweets?

    My grandfather achieve the state of no mind and remained in that state for several years after he suffered a major stroke. It’s good to know he lived the final years of his life in total bliss. I too would like to get there some day.

    Kapil discourses be like:

    Exercise: lie.
    Morning routines: lie.
    Practice: lie.
    Can Truth be bought: uncertain.

    Giving Kapil all your wealth means you’re serious: true.

    Namaste.

  3. My pledge was accepted by Kapil even though I didn’t write anything extra as an application in my email, all I did was offer money. Makes me think he only says serious people will be accepted to make the stuff behind the paywall seem a particular secret way. Since he accepted me without any additional text, I’m pretty sure he accepts anyone who offers him money. Then again is that really a surprise, most people wouldn’t turn down a massive sum of money either.

  4. https://www.golfwrx.com/author/kapilgupta/ “Dr. Gupta has devoted close to 30 years of his life” – archive shows it’s there from 2015 (he would’ve been age 45 at the time)

    https://www.siddhaperformance.com/about/
    “I have devoted at least half of my time on earth to the study of the intricacies of the human mind from an Eastern Philosophical perspective.” – archive shows it’s there from 2018 (he would’ve been 48 at the time, and half of 48 is 24).

    So this means Kapil would’ve started his journey of truth from around like 15-24.
    Sounds amazing. No way he’s lying right? Who knows.

    Anyway Kapil is quick to say self-improvement doesn’t work because most people don’t change after consuming it. But when someone points out most of Kapil’s followers don’t change or haven’t become enlightened, he’s quick to respond “because they’re not sincere enough to truly understand”. It’s easy for him to dodge the bullet by saying only like 5 people in the world will understand what he’s saying.

    Also as it mentions in the article in his previous site he says “Siddha Performance is the only company in the world devoted to achieving world class performance through mind transcendence.” – How would he know every company out there in relation to world class performance to be able to make such a statement? It amazes me how some Kapil followers do not see the blatant marketing. He has been trying to build his “truth” business from back in around 2012 where he was tweeting to CEOs/celebs/athletes because they’ve got the most money and so making them his clients is the fastest easiest way to make a lot of money. Kapil isn’t stupid, he knows what he’s doing but most of his followers are quite gullible.

  5. “First of all, understand this isn’t really a critique of his work”
    Should’ve put this in bold writing because people are missing the point here and pointlessly arguing things “X isn’t mutually exclusive to Y” when no one is saying it is.

    The free publicly available output from KG, is more than enough to keep one occupied in truth-seeking, for a lifetime. The easiest way to begin is via his publicly available works. KG has said several times, that one can arrive, from constant exposure to his public works. In one of Kapil’s twitter spaces, Kapil says some guy asked a second question so fast when he should’ve come back after like 20 years to ask the next question. The same applies to people with his content – they’re too eager for more and for the new stuff when if they were actually sincere then they would be coming back in like 50 years for more content. This is how you know that pretty much everyone who buys Kapil’s paid content is insincere (with the rare almost nonexistent exception of those who aren’t searching for any answers and just enjoy his art of writing – but even if you’re only consuming for the enjoyment of the art then the argument can be made that you’re not doing it genuinely for the truth seeking).

    And on a final note, most people who are so awed by Kapil’s work have seem to have lost their common sense. Yes the status quo are not always right, Yes society is fundamentally wrong about certain things. But to ignore common sense (and I do not mean in terms of the widely agreed subjective sense) is foolish. And even the simplest being with an ounce of common sense can see his website is full of marketing writings.

    Let’s have a look at some of the marketing descriptions on his website:

    1) THE SECRET WRITINGS:
    “As the number of humans in the world who are Ready for them is extraordinarily small.” – make it sound very scare to seem more valuable.
    “Pledges are in the thousands. Applications are made to [email protected]
    These are truly only for the human being that is Ready.” – make it sound like not everyone gets accepted even if they pay, which then makes the consumer feel like they were accepted out of a bunch of people and makes them feel special.

    2) THE UNTOLD SECRETS PODCAST:
    “The Untold Secrets podcast reveals in-depth secrets that allow a human being to attain the rarefied elixirs in Life, Business, and Craft.
    Secrets that society, experts, spiritualists, monks and the world have never Realized, and can never Reveal.” – These marketers love to use the word ‘secret’ and here he makes it sound like this stuff isn’t found anywhere else and that it reveals stuff that allows a human being to excel in a bunch of stuff.

    3) THE DIRECT TRUTH PODCASTS:
    “A repeated Exposure to these podcasts will create shifts in the pattern of the Mind” – How would he even know this unless it’s been tested on a bunch of people? But then Kapil often says only like 5 people are sincere enough for his work to have an effect, so if Kapil has tested it on people either there was a small sample size of 5 or there were a bunch of people where even a repeated exposure to the podcasts did not do anything – but does he mention either of those? No.

    4) PRIVATE DISCOURSES
    “Truths that they will seldom find anywhere in the world.” – again making it sound very scarce to seem more valuable.
    “It is exposure that Transforms a human.” – much like the self-help sites selling courses/programs that promise transformation.

    5) THE SIDDHA SCROLLS
    “These are only for those who are Serious and Devoted.” – making it sound like it’s only for rare individuals so that when they get accepted to pledge him a bunch of money it makes them feel good that they were accepted.

    6) THE SIDDHA ARRIVALS:
    “For the rarest of humans.”
    “Until now, these Journeys were made available only to a select few in secret.”
    “One must apply for them”
    The marketing is no different from that of the other sections. The marketing is self-explanatory, does it really need to be explained to anyone who is serious?

  6. Anyone heard Kapil’s most recent twitter space (10/1/23) with the very first speaker he immediately asks “where did you get the direct truth podcast?” lol he’s so pressed that people are not paying him for it, his business is probably suffering

  7. People are incredibly conditioned, Kapil is spot on about that. And Kapil is spot on that most people are not sincere enough to understand certain things. And that goes for most of his followers too – they simply won’t understand the point made in this article and instead will immediately jump to the conclusion that it’s just outrage and that it’s just a bunch of criticism on Kapil and then completely judge it all as invalid.

    People can be devoted to anything right? There are no rules right? Well then, one can be devoted to learning the true motives of Kapil Gupta.

    According to Kapil, his work will only be understood by a few humans around the world and the majority of people who read/listen to his work will misunderstand what he’s saying – THEREFORE, statistically speaking the majority of people who pledge or purchase a bunch of his stuff will not be transformed by it, therefore it is a waste of money for pretty much anyone to purchase anything from Kapil. Yes, money is perhaps the single most reliable litmus test for seriousness, HOWEVER, it isn’t guaranteed that one can simply buy their way to truth or enlightenment or anything otherworldly.

    Kapil gets enormous money out of the pledges and selling content. And I’m not saying he’s evil for that. Kapil says he doesn’t care if anyone listens to him or changes and that he has no desire for people to listen to him and that he just posts for the sake of posting with no ulterior motive. But just examine why one would tweet anything in the first place, why would one put out content online in the first place? Even the most base logical person can see that it’s for others to view – otherwise there’s 0 reason to post in the first place. One who is sincere can see the practicality behind tweeting or putting out content – there’s a cause and effect to these things and the effects are gaining more money, gaining more followers, growing personal brand, growing a business.

    As someone who pledged 6 figures to him, I only advise others not to. There’s nothing more behind the paywall. I know it all sounds so amazing and profound, it all seems like an exclusive secret but the extra access to the paid stuff isn’t anything new from what he has already said. It sucks for me that I only found this out after giving Kapil so much money but such is the case.

    Most of you are probably in your 20s and found Kapil through Naval, don’t rush into any of these pledges. At least wait until you’re in your 30s and have had a lot more life experience before you think you know so much “truth”

  9. There are resellers on the kapil reddit who charge less but don’t pay them either, if you search properly there you can find someone who actually generously gives out ALL of kapil’s paid stuff for FREE.

        You have to ask around on the Kapil subreddit in private because Kapil also views the Reddit and tries to shut down peoples Reddit accounts.

  10. Kapil reddit mod is still going at it. He’s making assumptions that certain statements here regarding Kapil are disingenuous and he’s deciding the manner in which they’re presented. He’s also then deciding whether others understood something or not.
    Kapil reddit mod: “The fact is they didn’t get that far as to understand what his position was.”
    Kapil reddit mod: “His position is that coaches aren’t interested in the truth. That it is tremendously unlikely to find people who are interested in the truth in the world, particularly among those who are providing coaching services. That all coaches are in the business of prescribing, just like their own coaches were. That no coach is a pure and uncompromising seeker of the truth.”
    Right, I’m not sure who doesn’t understand that this is Kapil’s position, this is straight up obvious imo especially considering Kapil has been saying the same thing about coaches and prescriptions for years. Yes, this doesn’t mean making “no coaches” or “no prescriptions” into a rule but the point is the sincere genuine serious person devoted to truth would naturally come to not have coaches or prescriptions for non-mechanical things.

    Kapil reddit mod also makes the assumption that things were said out of “outrage”. So how would he know the authenticity of what others say? How would he know the manner in which things were said? Sure from the tone we can gather our perspective of what seems very likely but KNOWING is different from very strongly believing. It’s impossible for one to absolutely KNOW if another presented a statement with neutrality or not. One can only subjectively strongly believe at best “logical”/”rational” educated guess. It’s quite funny because Kapil himself talks about this point of how knowing and believing are completely different things, and how beliefs do come but he puts them through a massive filter to rid them. It is certainly plausible that these things were said out of outrage but you don’t KNOW that, for all we know it could’ve simply been someone who found writing this article out of simple pure enjoyment, it could be OP’s way of having fun (I’m not saying that is the reason. I’m saying it COULD be that), or it COULD be some other reason. And since there is no way of telling, the COULDs are all speculation.
    I’d also add that even if one was outraged it doesn’t mean they can’t make a factual statement while being outraged. Kapil has often spoke about being outraged at society and the status quo. Being outraged doesn’t suddenly change the meaning of what’s actually being said. Being outraged isn’t mutually exclusive with truth.

    Likewise with Kapil’s son having a coach. Kapil could’ve played a part in picking out a coach for his son or not, we don’t truly know but even if it is the case, there could be some other reason. The possible reasons are all ultimately speculation.
    Kapil reddit mod: “In what universe have the critics made even an iota of a intelligent point by bringing up his son’s coach’s name like creepy doxxers?”
    So this reddit mod is viewing everything through the lens of whether it’s a relevant intellectual point because he’s viewing everything here through the lens of being a criticism – OP may simply be providing facts to have the article be more full of accurate information, not every single sentence has to be an intelligent argumentative counterpoint to Kapil. Also Kapil’s son’s coach’s name is relatively well-known if you follow or even see either of them on twitter. Also one would think if OP really intended or wanted to dox Kapil then he’d have included his address, emails and phone numbers (and yes all those can be found from a simple google search, not exactly some thorough investigative dox lol).

    Kapil reddit mod: “I should ban these trolls on sight.”
    Well yes that’s the easy move when you can’t win a debate, especially here because you can’t debate against the truth. And so it’s much easier to just accuse the other side of being “trolls” or “insincere” and certainly much easier to just ban/block them but unfortunately for him and Kapil, they can’t do that here where they don’t have their reddit mod powers.

  11. Here’s the problem with Kapil’s work:

    He knows that most people following his work won’t fully understand it properly and this will lead to potential problems with most of them. Since at its worst, Kapil’s philosophy is a coping mechanism for the lazy and unmotivated. Since Truth is forever hidden behind Kapil’s curtain, his followers have an excuse to not progress. Kapil’s teachings allow ample room for cynicism and inaction.

    Kapil has bastardized the definition of Truth to fit his purpose. Forsaking prescriptions means forsaking Action. This is where his philosophy turns harmful. His followers won’t magically enter a flow state by reading his work. Life doesn’t work like that. No effort=no result

    There’s no need to read, because books are a scam.
    There’s no need to learn, because education is a scam.
    There’s no need to self-improve, because that’s a scam.
    There’s no need to even exercise, because you’re going to die regardless.
    You get the point…

    If you’re not moving forward, you’re either immobilized or in retreat.
    Kapil’s subreddit could be full of depressed students seeking direction. It’s well-known that inactivity increases depression risk. By using Kapil’s work to nurture this tendency, they harm themselves further. If you’re using Kapil’s work as an excuse to be cynical and reject society, then you’re already in the hole. Just like Kapil, you’re unable to admit your faults and limitations, and you’re becoming detached from reality.

    The Kapilean student is never aware of their self-sabatoge, because they don’t understand real Truth: Truth isn’t something a guru can provide. It’s not writings that Kapil has monopolized. The real Truth starts with self-honesty. How honest you can be with yourself?
    This is where Kapil’s corruption of Truth becomes a dagger.
    A Truth devotee can never lie, even if telling Truth harms themselves.
    How many people even aspire to this standard?
    Do you really believe Kapil has never lied? A single lie is mutually exclusive with Truth
    Every person is deluded. We lie to ourselves, then lie to others. A real Truth devotee does not lie, and their actions match their words (hypocrisy is a form of lie). Claiming to be a Truth devotee is not a casual statement. A single lie exposes you as a poser.

    Even if what Kapil actually means is different to what his audience understands it as – what does he except when he goes back and forth between saying things at face value to saying things with subtle meanings to discussing nuanced abstract concepts. Language can indeed be a barrier. His discourses are full of sounding highly romanticized sentences that lead people nowhere. This is just a glossy portrayal of life to have his audience keep coming back for more discourses and more twitter space conversations.

  12. I’d really advise against paying for Kapil’s paid content.
    As an example, if you have read his free public discourses:
    -Why Practice Does Not Create Greatness. And What Truly Does (2018)
    -Practices Lead Nowhere (2022)

    And search on Youtube what he’s said about practice, there are titles like “Practice Is a Myth” and “Practice: Unlearning of Traditional Norms”.

    If you’ve read/listened to all the above and also have access to his $500 Direct truth podcast “Practice is not the way” – you can see he’s just repeating the same things from the free stuff using slightly different wording. The truth is the same, the only difference is with the latter he’s charging $500 for an audio of less than 7 minutes.

    This is just one example, the same applies to all the other topics he charges money for. He is essentially charging a lot of money for repeating the same free stuff he has already said/written. Speaking from experience, highly recommend not to pledge him any money or buy any of his work.

    Kapil just recently deleted the tweets that he posted like a couple years ago promoting his book. What timing right, this article gets posted a few days back and then Kapil suddenly deletes a bunch of his tweets that were posted from a year ago.

    If there was nothing wrong (and I don’t mean in the sense that there is no right or wrong) in the tweets WHY DELETE THEM then? It could be that he knows it hurts his image/reputation and therefore affects his personal brand and thereby affecting his business. Or it could be some other reason, only he really knows. But it doesn’t look good on him, NOT that it matters in terms of an individual devoted to truth because what Kapil does is irrelevant to others – have to say this before Kapil fans come in and strawman with “well that’s not mutually exclusive with truth”.

    Let’s examine the cause and effect of his behaviour.
    Why would he be spamming amazon links to his books to a bunch of celebrities?
    Why would he dress up all smart and use that pic for his website instead of a casual picture of himself?
    Why would he use wordings such as “The Untold Secrets podcast reveals in-depth secrets that allow a human being to attain the rarefied elixirs in Life, Business, and Craft.” or “Secrets that society, experts, spiritualists, monks and the world have never Realized, and can never Reveal.” or “This is the only work of its kind, anywhere in the world today.”?
    Any honest person with common sense and no biased view can see the attempt to market and convince. And OP points out you may say hes not trying to convince anyone of anything and that he’s just stating truth BUT it is possible to persuade/indoctrinate people who are sitting on the fence for certain things.

    So why would he do all those things? Why market? Why promote your books, discourses and work to the masses? Cause and effect says MONEY.
    And there’s nothing right or wrong about wanting money, nothing right or wrong about marketing and promoting your products. But it simply is the case that what Kapil gets out of this is MONEY. If you’ve read his work about charity and humility (e.g “Every attempt to be humble is false, is a charade”) then you’d realize he’s not doing any of this to make others feel better (again, nothing right or wrong about that).
    So the answer is MONEY – and to make it absolutely clear to the kapil fans that try to defend him, that answer of money does not have any impact of the validity of his teachings. It’s simply a statement of truth that what he gets from all this is money.

    Let’s also examine this further – if no one was to buy Kapil’s stuff like his direct truth podcasts nor pledge him any money, THEN he wouldn’t be receiving any passive income AND if he’s not receiving any passive income he’d either have to eventually go homeless or start working some active job (like going back to the medical profession) and if you’ve read/heard his content about “jobs” then you’d understand that he thinks they’re a living prison.

    And as for the whole “money shows sincerity” – paying huge amounts of money doesn’t guarantee change. For instance, see pick-up artists and their multi-thousand dollar bootcamps, there are many many people who pay thousands to attend these bootcamps and still end up making no change in the end. The same goes for a lot of the self-help programs or coaching stuff. You can pay huge amounts of money for anything and it might not change you at all, you can also not pay anything and positively massively transform and ofc the reverses can also be true – but the point is money doesnt necessarily show sincerity nor can it necessarily buy sincerity or genuineness.

    + PROS: His content might be of value or seem wise to you if you haven't heard it before (which is likely because this stuff is secluded among the spiritual and self-help spaces)
    - CONS: Deletes the tweets of him promoting his work. Extremely repetitive content. Makes empty threats and scare tactics about his lawyers prosecuting people.

  14. I see some reddit kapil-defenders say this is “not a serious examination of Kapil’s work.” OP never said it’s an examination of kapil’s work, in fact OP clearly stated stuff like “First of all, understand this isn’t really a critique of his work”, “You may find some value in his work if you haven’t already heard all this basic stuff before”, “If you really enjoy his work then keep reading/listening to the free stuff.” – So what exactly made this kapil-defender think it was an examination of his work lol? Strawman.

    The same reddit kapil-defender said “I do not care how much he charges, it’s his work, it’s his decision.” Did he not see OP mention “Kapil is free to sell his stuff at whatever price he wishes to do so” – it’s like these reddit kapil-defenders didn’t even read everything properly. And sure it is true that it’s ultimately the buyer’s choice if they pay for something – The consumers need to take accountability for their actions as well. But the point is that the producer isn’t necessarily wanting what is best for you. As an example just take people who sell junk food, they’re giving you food in return for money but it’s not great for your health. Of course difference is people usually know that junk food isn’t healthy when they decide to buy it and there usually isn’t places where you can get those junk food for absolutely free unlike nearly all of Kapil’s paid content or other people’s self-help content.
    Yes you are making the choice when you indulge in such things but the point is that the producers are not always on your side.
    Yes one is making the choice when they buy a private discourse or a coaching program or whatever but if it’s deceptively marketed in a way to convince you that it’s absolutely life changing and then you spend your money on it but find that it’s inadequate then you would feel like you got screwed over. Of course it’s your opinion if you find it inadequate but certain things can be objectively underwhelming and therefore is trickery by the producer.

    These kapil-defenders pick and choose looking at things differently.
    The details of certain things are not important such as for simple concepts where fixating on the details is retreating into unnecessary complexities. But in the case of just words said/written by individuals, if you’re going to talk about serious examinations then it’s all about looking at the nuances, details, patterns, thorough dissection, observations, analysis and a deep examination of the causes and effects. But what some Kapil followers do is they look at kapil’s work through a certain lens (ie. seriousness) and then look at what others say (such as this article) through another type of lens (ie. with the preconceived notion that it’s false). If one is truly sincerely interested in the truth then they don’t look at anything through any type of lens and see everything with the same sincerity rather than picking and choosing treating/looking at things differently.

  15. Kapil probably seen this article since he just deleted all those tweets saying “if you like osho..” then promoting his book. These Kapil fans don’t see how attached they are to him, they’ve got an excuse for everything he does. I wonder what their coping rationalization is for why he deleted those tweets just a few days after this article was made? Anyway here’s one from his old account that he didn’t delete (see it before he deletes it too) –
    https://twitter.com/Siddhaper4mance/status/600851842164203521

  16. Great review, background on him, and other sources of “gurus.” It seems everything would be a prescription, perhaps even “go figure it out yourself”, which is kind of KG’s message. Although his prescription is definitely quite different than other self help books.

  17. One of the kapil subreddit mods made a poor response of an “answer” to this article.
    Much of the so-called answers were along the lines of “X is not mutually exclusive with the truth” – which is just a straight up STRAWMAN, no where in the article does it actually make the claim that any of those things are mutually exclusive with truth, they’re simply just being pointed out.

    Another reddit user asks “how does hunger for money contradict with anything he says?” – but again another strawman comment in the form of a question. No where in the article does it actually say that his hunger for money contradicts anything he says.

    One reddit user did make a good point:
    There’s a difference between posting those things as just statements and posting them as criticism specifically towards his ability to preach truth. Like if one was to specifically state that because of X, Y or Z that those things affect the credibility of the “truth” he speaks/writes then that’s completely different to just making the statement of let’s say for example “kapil’s son has a coach” with no further additional statements.

    If people just said those statements without further context then what tends to happen is people form their own interpretation instead of taking what’s said at face value and this isn’t their fault, humans tend to just be like that (even Kapil has said this before about how people wrongly misinterpret things). The premise is someone said X but people read it as Y (X + their interpretation). So if someone just said “he has a hunger for money” then that’s all they meant, it doesn’t mean “he has a hunger for money + that runs contradictory to truth”. Or if someone says “Kapil charges a lot of money” – that doesn’t mean what’s said is “Kapil charges a lot of money + that must mean what he says about truth is incorrect”. The extra stuff after the “+” is all simply one’s own interpretation instead of reading what’s said at face value.

    • I just saw the reddit thread and read the convo between the reddit user who made a good point and the kapil reddit mod. It goes and back forth with the mod first misunderstanding the other guy, then later says they’re on the same page and then eventually the convo comes to an end with the mod not having a reply to the other guy’s final post.

      At one point that reddit convo comes to “factual statements vs truth”
      The mod says “factual statements are not truth”
      The thing here is there’s this abstract personal definition of truth and it’s diving into semantics. The mod goes on a tangent about his personal definition of truth but understand this: If something is a fact then it’s not wrong or false.
      Even the dictionary definition of fact = is a thing that is known or proved to be true.
      In law, fact = the truth about events as opposed to interpretation.

      The problem with the mod and many other kapil students is that you can’t really get through to many of them because they are so convinced that what they’re saying is “truth” and they will just make claims that are unfalsifiable, not backed-up, not elaborated on – they’re simply a bunch of opinionated statements that goes like “This is the way it is”, “That is what they’re doing”, “This is how they feel”, “That is the position they’re taking” – with no additional follow-up to back it up. Anyone can make simple statements that are not backed up and it can just lead to a circular argument. The mod may have even picked up responding in that fashion from Kapil – when there’s any question Kapil doesn’t like he can just respond “you’re insincere” and move on (not saying that’s what he does all the time). In an argument if you cannot prove something to another person then it does not have much weight as a point.

    • The funny part is he says there won’t be a retort but here we are where you’ve just refuted him. And he also says people jump to conclusions WHILE incorrectly jumping to the conclusion that the statements were said in response to their relation with kapil’s truth preaching.

  18. What he says really isn’t that new or profound, at least to me it isn’t. I can guarantee you that most of the people who are so impressed and captivated by his writings are a bunch of 20-something year olds.

  19. I bet kapil fans will pick and choose which parts to respond to and not answer everything. They’ll likely dodge the stuff like Kapil’s comments on the Joe Rogan post where Kapil makes a comment in the form of question but then calls out some other guy for doing the same thing.

    • You called it. The kapil subreddit mod made a response to this (debunked by a comment above by “Charles”) and he conveniently left out certain things such as that Joe Rogan post.

    Aman has been one of the best players in the world for the past few years and was a starter at the #1 college golf team in the country. Guarantee Foley isn’t charging that, most likely just a percentage of earnings. Do a little research on these things before writing. Don’t think anyone would see his resume and come up with “decent”

      He’s not number 1. He’s not top 10. He’s not top 100. Not even top 1000.He hasn’t even made the PGA Tour yet. He may or not achieve much greater things in the future but as of yet, he’s no where near the greatest. He’s ranked #1741 – if this is your idea of “one of the best players in the world” then you have extremely low standards for being one of the best players in the world. No sincere serious individual would have such low standards.

      I suggest you do your research before telling others to do their research.
      Secondly, “decent” is just a descriptive adjective for how he thinks Aman is doing and in fact after looking at those rankings, saying “decent” is actually being incredibly favorable to Aman.

    • The truth is you don’t know whether Foley has any impact or not – what you’ve done is you’ve come in with your subjective opinion on the matter. But what we do know is that Aman has Foley as a coach. Also, for someone who isn’t being impacted much at all by a coach – would then bring up the question, well why does he have a coach in the first place then? And before you jump to answering that, make sure it’s based on objective facts rather than on more subjective opinions.

      He literally does charge that much lmaoo.

      As for “Aman” idk as much as you or OP does about him, but surely if he is one of the best players then supports OP’s point since Aman does indeed have a coach which is contrary to Kapil’s anti-coach sayings

  21. Thank you for the time to write this detailed review.

    I found myself captivated by his writings, and am in awe of his marketing genius and mastery of human nature (use of scarcity, FOMO, exclusivity).
