Who compiled this timeline and why?
A relatively anonymous individual who many years ago started to explore the history (Etymology) of words. Who started to explore the history of the world. And (heaven help me) who started to explore the history of Eckankar.
Why the history of words? You figure it out. Why the history of the world? Ditto. Why the history of Eckankar? On account of what any true debate stands to gain in the process. A right, a left, and a middle position. A middle position that - without the support of which - the right and the left would crumble.
The key word on this timeline is "Trivia". That which attempts to illustrate "three connected paths". I have not elected to illustrate this timeline solely according to "official" versions of Eckankar history. There are websites for that. I have not elected to illustrate this timeline solely according to "unofficial" versions. There are websites for that too. This is but a compiled timecapsule of trivial information (from "official" and "unofficial" sources) that may, or may not, directly relate to what is "Eckankar" for any one individual. It may, or may not, resolve debated issues of history. However, if it helps to define what stands in the middle of any true debate, may it "re-cord" that miracle innate.

*Note: This timeline has evolved considerably from its first inception. Aside from "Eckankar" trivia it now includes history / trivia about other gurus, religions and the "New Age" movement in general.
