Heard of both, don't know much about either. My first cousin studied/believed in eckankar, for a pretty long time. Seems like it was a guru kinda thing...not sure though. At that time it seemed cultish. But they do believe in God, well a God. I always thought it was the same God I believed in, just a different route to get there, or practice or a way to connect with God with our spirit thru music/sounds and light.

I shouldn't say cultish I suppose. I was out working in my yard today planting flowers and I felt like I was worshiping God thru His creation. Everything I touched, I thought about God and His beautiful creation, of all the colors on flowers and the designs, etc etc. Just amazing. So it is possible to worship God thru nature.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
