Monte Blu: 20 Tenets and Pledge to Vanguard

The 20 tenets and pledge to Vanguard

by Monte Blu

1. The deeper you get into ESP, the less you need to doubt. Follow Vanguard who offers justification for  faith.

2.  ESP teaches the achievement of happiness. Vanguard exists for the sake of earning you rewards.

3. ESP is a tool. It will take you wherever you wish, but it must replace the driver. It gives Vanguard the means for the satisfaction of your desires, but it will not provide you with desires.

4. ESP will not purchase happiness for the student who has no conception of Vanguard.

5. ESP will give you a code of values, and provide you with a purpose.

6. When you have made ESP the means of survival, you are on the Stripe Path.

7.  When you feel proud of Vanguard, the measured rhythm of his voice giving clarity to his words, it will help you to reach higher and still higher achievements on the Stripe Path.

8. None can equal Vanguard’s moral integrity, none can work as hard as he, live solely by his own effort, and give more than his students can give. The aim of your life is to serve Vanguard.

9.  Vanguard has been denounced, not for his faults, but for his greatest virtues. He has been hated, not for his mistakes, but for his achievements. He has been called the leader of a cult for the vision that made him discover Rational Inquiry.

10. He is the purest and most moral among humankind, yet he has been sneered at as a cult leader. Have you stopped to ask by what right?—by what code?—by what standard?

11. If you saw The Vanguard with blood running down his chest, his knees buckling, his arms trembling but still trying to hold the world to that highest ethical standard he created with the last of his strength, and the greater his effort, the heavier the suppressives and parasites bore down upon him, what would you do to help him?

12. The woman who surrenders to Vanguard permits herself the ability to experience the greatest sense of self-esteem.

13. Do you know what it takes to be Vanguard? Do you know the kind of skill it demands, and the years of passionate, merciless, excruciating devotion that go to acquire that skill?

14. Vanguard looks for value.

15. Devotion to Vanguard is the hallmark of morality; there is no greater, nobler, more heroic form of devotion than the act of a woman who grants Vanguard the responsibility for her life meaning.

16.  The mystic of the spirit is Vanguard. He is beyond woman’s power to conceive. But his rule cannot be done without consent. If you permit it to be done, then you deserve it.

17.  Vanguard is able to achieve that which you have no knowledge. Reality is an absolute, existence is an absolute, as is Vanguard. Ponder this deeply.

18.  Only Vanguard can exist without material property.

19 . You call it selfish and cruel that Vanguard should trade value for value? But we have established unselfish society in the community of NXIVM. The difference between reward and punishment, between purchase and plunder, between pleasure and fear, between life and death is learning: who is Vanguard.

20. In the name of the best within you, in the name of values, do not lose knowledge that Vanguard’s mind travels unlimited roads. His fire never goes out. He is the hero in your soul whom you must be able to reach.

Say this pledge:


I swear—by my life and my love of it—that I will never live for the sake of anyone but Vanguard.

The Vanguard was last seen in Monterrey Mexico.

  • Sheer stupidity. The man with the high IQ has had that superior intellect destroyed by his lusts – and it shows in this garbage his followers are expected to live by. I truly hope and pray that he and Mack, all others responsible for their degenerate and evil behaviors and actions end up in prison for life.

  • For the smartest man in the world you really don’t get it. You don’t want people to think we are a cult and then you write shit like this? You need to hire a new PR team. Like, NOW!

    • Haha
      If he were the smartest man in the world, would he be in the position he’s in right now?
      Honestly, the only thing this guy excels at is manipulation.

  • Thou shalt have no gods before me.

    Thou shalt not kill

    Thou shalt not covet thy neighbours wife

    Thou shalt not steal

    Thou shalt not have sex with children. ……ok, Month Python, I made that last one up myself, but I actually think your Vanguard has broken every single one (though I’m not a Bible reader so I can’t quite remember).

    Your number 18 point is so funny! Keith exists only by sponging off the material property of others, Monty., (a true sociopathic trait).

    A wonder if Frank could get some expert testimony from a Mental health professional to evaluate what type of mental illness/illnesses the writer of this article suffers from?

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest.
