Some human beings produce evil just as bees produce honey.
We said it once and we say it again: amongst the biggest nuisances of human life there is of course arguing with strange, radical minds, which, in addition to their obvious lack of judgment, also “enjoy” the “gift” of bad faith.Ion Luca Caragiale
The one who seeks only the stains of the Sun, searching within his perverse mind reasons to criticize,
will always find something to criticize even in Paradise.
Gregorian Bivolaru Read the first part of this article Returning now to the venomous letters written by pseudo-master Pinocchio-Virgil Catalin, we will show that the lies we have exposed so far are far from being the only ones. As we will clearly see, il maestro, just like a pathetic Pinocchio devoid of intelligence and discernment but replete with an immense hatred and full of unquenchable thirst for revenge, relapses into throwing (sometimes totally freely) other more and more embarrassing lies. This is all due to his stubborn and unacknowledged desire to sow abject doubts, to intentionally destroy and defame as much as he can with this bitter vendetta that he has unleashed and which is paradoxically aimed against an authentic spiritual school and against a human being that has never caused him the slightest harm, human being that Virgil Catalin should show a minimal gratitude towards (if he had a basic common sense). He should also be grateful that yoga teacher Gregorian Bivolaru offered him back then, at the “beginning”, a yoga instructor diploma as well as the courses of our school to be able to successfully teach (for almost 15 years!) yoga for the first time there in Italy.
A 600 euro lie
Here is a prime example of a blatant despicable lie, in which the pseudo-master Virgil, due to the forgetfulness and stupidity that characterize him, gives himself away: after he first claimed, with a huge amount of rudeness, that yoga teacher Gregorian Bivolaru supposedly demanded from him a vast monthly sum from the yoga classes in Italy (an assertion which is in reality completely untrue and not based on any evidence outside of the lies and contradictory and extravagant allegations rudely made by Virgil Catalin) he then gives himself away that actually he lied and says verbatim in that letter that he definitely did not agreed with this (he even invents another super-exaggerated lie: that he had had a “fiery discussion” with yoga teacher Gregorian Bivolaru on this subject), because – and once again he shamelessly lies – he was not teaching “MISA courses”. Since he is not able to perceive the obvious contradictions in his foolish lies, Virgil Catalin launches with more aplomb a newer lie (which only he could believe!) that he took monthly (just like a goofy “hero”) a certain (considerable) amount of money from his own pocket, so that the yoga classes that he “was keeping” to be able to continue (an unbelievable statement, if we consider that then he was doing this on his own, in order to obtain material gain): “I used to put about $ 500 per month out of my pocket to support the costs of those courses.” Once again Catalin Virgil is exposed as a big liar because we all know that in Italy at that time the classes were paid for in Italian lire and not in US dollars, but complacent due to his state of stupidity, he is unable to realize that this obvious lie will not fail to go unnoticed.
Here is another lie that Virgil Catalin hopes will be believed by those naive and “gullible”: he says that after he began to receive the printed courses of MISA Yoga school ( he says around the years 1994-1995) he started teaching the course in Italy and from that moment, here again he begins to lie shamelessly, he claims he was asked to donate certain monthly amounts of money, sums which (in accordance with his exaggerated lies) continued to increase – he says – and at some point (again in accordance with his exaggerated lies) rose to the huge sum of 600 Euros (monthly). Virgil Catalin doesn’t even realize that his super exaggerated lie with the 600 Euros that he claims he used to send monthly, meant, as it is natural, that that sum had to be sent by post. Of course it is impossible for us to imagine that he came to Romania personally (spending another 400Euro on transportation) to deliver the alleged sum of 600Euro to MISA (as he dares lie with an immense shamelessness). Due to the fact that this is a huge lie, we, in the name of MISA yoga school, would like to propose to Mr. Virgil Catalin the following substantial bet (valid for the next 20 years) where he has to risk only one Euro and our school offers all the properties belonging to MISA. All Virgil Calin has to do is produce some genuine receipts, even a single actual bill that authenticates the sending of that amount (by mail or bank) dated no matter when, any official receipt that proves he at least once sent here in Romania the amount of 600 Euros to MISA or to its yoga teacher Gregorian Bivolaru.
You will find, however, that he will never have the courage to accept this bet because his allegations regarding the so-called fabulous donation of 200,000 Euros ARE IN TOTALITY DESPICABLE LIES, COMPLETELY WITHOUT FOUNDATION. YOU WILL ALL BE ABLE TO SEE THUS THAT I WAS RIGHT ABOUT VIRGIL CĂTĂLIN’S OUTRAGEOUS LIES – WE ARE ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN, IN ADVANCE – THAT HE WILL CUNNINGLY AVOID THE BET AND WILL PROBABLY SUSTAIN IN A STUPID AND ABERRANT WAY THAT HE IS NOT IN THE LEAST INTERESTED IN SUCH A BET, OR THAT DUE TO HIS “NOBILITY”, “GENEROSITY” AND ” HUGE BENEVOLENCE” THAT CHARACTERIZE HIM, HE DOES NOT WANT TO PROVE THAT HE AT LEAST ONCE SENT EVEN 50 EUROS TO MISA OR TO YOGA TEACHER GREGORIAN BIVOLARU BECAUSE HE IS “DETACHED” FROM ALL THIS. HE WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO OFFER EVEN THE SLIGHTEST EVIDENCE IN THIS RESPECT, BECAUSE IN REALITY HE NEVER DONATED, EITHER MONTHLY OR OTHERWISE, THE HUGE AMOUNTS HE FALSELY CLAIMS TO HAVE SENT MONTHLY TO ROMANIA. WE ARE SURE THAT VIRGIL CĂTĂLIN DID NOT THINK OF THESE SIGNIFICANT ASPECTS WHICH OUTSTANDLY EXPOSE HIM AND PUT HIM IN A PATHETIC LIGHT AS A SCAMMER AND GREAT LIAR, SEEKING TO VICTIMIZE HIMSELF THROUGH SOME INCREDIBLE LIES. BECAUSE WE HAVE A SENSE OF HUMOR, WE WILL WAIT, ROARING WITH LAUGHTER, FOR MORE OUTRAGEOUS LIES THAT VIRGIL CATALIN WILL INVENT IN ORDER TO APPEAR CLEAN NOW, THAT WE HAVE ALREADY EASILY EXPOSED HIM, JUST BECAUSE OF HIS CHILDISH LIES THAT HE LAUNCHED IN A STUPID MANNER WITHOUT HAVING THOUGHT EVEN FOR A MOMENT THAT THESE IDIOTIC LIES WOULD EVENTUALLY EXPOSE HIM. WE CAN ALSO BE SURE THAT VIRGIL CATALIN WILL BECOME HUGELY ANGRY BECAUSE THROUGH HIS IDIOTIC LIES HE HAS EXPOSED HIMSELF FOR WHO HE REALLY IS.
So, il maestro Virgil Catalin, who lies dramatically, is telling us (due to the yoga courses which he was teaching) that he made donations to MISA worth about 200,000 Euros. Given that a lie has short legs, Virgil Catalin gives himself away with this statement which is another blatant lie. We will use a very simple reasoning including the METHOD OF REDUCTION TO ABSURDITY. Thus, if we consider that Virgil Catalin’s aberrant statement would be (by reduction to absurdity) real and from the beginning he donated, as he says, 600 € (though he says that at first the amounts were small, like $ 300), then during the 10 years (assuming that, by reduction to absurdity, he paid this amount until 2004 inclusive), even then the total amount that would have been donated wouldn’t have been bigger than 600 € x 10years x 11 calendar months (if we consider that August is a holiday month) and thus resulting only to about € 66,000 (which as we can see is not even a third of the amount that he falsely and impertinently claimed that he donated). 600€ x 10years x 11months = 66 000 € We therefore deduce from here (laughing out loud at this comic show provided by Catalin Calin’s stupid lies) that the remaining € 134,000 (which he would need to complete the alleged amount of € 200,000) would have been given from his salary as a chef (as in his letter – the pseudo master Virgil Catalin tells us clearly that he had no other source of income!). Therefore, if through reduction to absurdity we believe that Virgil Catalin’s super-exaggerated lies were true, then it seems obvious that it was inherently necessary for him to have (in order to support a certain lifestyle) at least twice as much than he falsely claims that he donated. In other words he would have to have had at least € 400 000. A simple calculation shows that in this way Virgil Catalin would have had a salary as a chef that would make all Romanians who worked or work in Italy in this profession (or in many others) truly jealous! In addition, in these circumstances he would have – also – had to willy-nilly pay a substantial tax to the IRS, if that was indeed a declared salary that allowed him to live very well and to also donate as much money as he claims (and also shamelessly lies).
Even if we assume (again by integrating the method of reduction to absurdity) that these donations (which we have approximated by using the maximum monthly amount falsely mentioned by himself in his letters) had been made during 15 years (i.e. including until 2010), still the total would not result in even half the amount of € 200 000. Of course, these estimates are approximate (and we emphasize here once again that we have integrated this method of reduction to absurdity just to expose his enormous lies), but all these can give us a fairly accurate idea of the alleged magnitude all these donations (which in reality never existed!) could have – supposedly – amounted to. So with the state of stupidity that so well characterizes him, il maestro Virgil Catalin fully exposes himself through his entirely over-exaggerated lies with which he tries to defame yoga teacher Gregorian Bivolaru, and with the moronic way he attempts to place himself in the position as a victim.
Stupidity and megalomania live well together, but not with the truth
Then, also without realizing it due to the same stupidity which makes him complacent – Virgil Calin makes the huge mistake by saying how reluctant he was in making those claimed donations, citing an episode where he demonstrated (supposedly) to Grieg “with coloured crayons” that he had no reason to pay any sum for the yoga classes he kept and that he was indebted to no-one. And then he added elsewhere (in that letter), with evident dissatisfaction, another abject lie: that yoga teacher Gregorian Bivolaru would often strongly urge him to donate. Even a man who is less endowed with intelligence can easily notice the huge difference between pseudo-master Catalin Virgil claiming to be really “annoyed” by the alleged multiple requests for him to donate, and his so-called “generosity” due to which Catalin Virgil donated (he says) not only the monthly sum of 600 € that he brazenly claims Grieg demanded from him (even if he entangles himself in his own web of lies by telling us how he categorically refused to donate even one dollar!) but also (and here one can easily see how il maestro Virgil shamelessly lies) he claims he added from his own money (besides the 600 €) another thousand or so Euros (which is nearly twice the amount of 600 € – from which, again according to him, he found it hard to separate). All these outrageous lies regarding the unusual and obviously incredible “generosity” that Virgil Catalin boasts about (in addition to numerous books and music CDs he again exaggeratingly says he donated to MISA) are clearly devoid of any trace of credibility.
On the other hand, the irony is that Virgil Catalin does not even realize the huge ridiculous aspect of the fact that because of the figures he himself offered, if they were (by reduction to absurdity) true (although in reality, as it is clearly obvious, it is all nothing but a huge nonsense), he implicitly proves the great value and effectiveness of the classes of this yoga school (classes he now illogically rejects and considers “distorted” and “untrue”), as well as the fact that they are objectively appreciated also in Italy: if, as he lies, before he began teaching the MISA classes he had so few students that he was not even able to cover the rent for the classroom, meaning he had to contribute from his own money with another $ 500 per month, how is it possible that as soon as he began teaching the MISA courses, the influx of people willing to practice this effective form of yoga was so great that not only that he had enough money to pay the rent, but also to make those false “donations” (which annoyed him so much, as he himself falsely testifies in order to victimize himself) and on top of all these, he had enough money left to live very well, proven by the fact that he had a very luxurious car!
Another blatant lie (and also completely useless, given its lack of relevance in this context) that il maestro Virgil throws at us through his letters is that he last worked as a chef 20 years ago. We choose to ignore the obvious contradiction in the justification he gives us about how he provided the funds (he said he was able to make over time, so many donations from his salary … as a chef!) and we stop to analyze the statement itself. Due to the fact that Divine Providence wanted at all costs to reveal the lies of this ridiculous Pinocchio, a youtube video posted on July 5th 2011 appeared in which we can see il maestro Virgil Catalin actively working as a chef. The video belongs to the school of professional chefs specializing in pizza (Scuola pizzaioli professionisti): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdvchmLT1ZI. It is obvious that this particular chef school would not have invited someone who had not worked for over 20 years to perform in that video! So we have exposed another lie that il maestro Virgil Catalin served us on a plate as he became so used to lying andvictimizing himself. Also, given the lack of importance and relevance of these lies in the present context, it is actually worth asking ourselves: Why did he insist on hiding this? Why was it necessary for him to justify himself by saying that he is now a “freelancer” or that he studied at “the most famous (authentic!) schools of yoga in the world” (thus implying that MISA yogaschool he represented for more than 10 years in Italy, has suddenly become for him… not authentic!) and that “he graduated with almost the highest grade possible (the bombastic ridiculousness of this expression belongs entirely to him) from the Faculty of Political Science and International Relations”? There is only one logical and natural answer: Virgil Catalin isseeking thereby to present a fabulous image, as pompous and as believable as possible, to the poor naïve people that follow him.
Another outrageous and full of venom lie, showing how big his resentments are against yoga teacher Gregorian Bivolaru, whom Pinocchio Virgil Catalin tries with all his might to present in a filthy light, is the abject claim that Grieg urged him to manipulate the people, to deceive them, or to demand 30% of their income. When launching this extreme lie, Virgil Catalin forgets that in Italy another person has also been authorized to teach yoga classes and he can always provide an honest testimony that he was neither asked to give donations of any kind nor told to ask for differential fees from his students, meaning 30% of their monthly income. Poor Virgil Catalin forgot this very important detail which flagrantly exposes his lies. The poor guy forgets that at present there are many MISA yoga classes abroad, many of which existed before the ones in Italy. But never (we underline this: never, before, or indeed after this discussion in which Calin Catalin claims that Grieg suggested that he should ask from his students 30% of their monthly income) have I heard from any yoga class, in any country, a demand such as this, because this kind of an approach would have obviously been as absurd as it is ridiculous. If this lie, rudely launched by Virgil Catalin, and which goes beyond any measure, had been at least 1% true, it would have been normal to hear from at least one foreign yoga instructor (from our courses) that Grieg had suggested to him or her this idea and they would have confirmed Virgil Catalin’s manifestly false allegations. However such a person does not exist, has not existed and will never exist! Instead, by nonchalantly defying any basic logic and common sense, Pinocchio Virgil Catalin wants at all cost to portray as an ordinary thug the man he recently respected and considered to be his spiritual guide! Moreover, and as a culmination of all his impertinence and abject insinuations, Virgil Catalin claims that Grieg made the following statement: “I’ll teach you how to proceed, because I did jail time and I know all the tricks, no one can fool me.”After considering that this is probably not enough, Virgil-Pinocchio goes further and exposes his infectious intentions by making this massive and stupid assertion: “he [Grieg] got to the point that he was constantly lying”! Due to such nonsense (which, as always, Virgil Pinocchio asks us to believe in his words because he offers no evidence – simply because such evidence does not exist) we expect at every moment for maestro Virgil to declaim, about himself (just like Petre Roman during the days of NSF): “I have never lied.”
