THE GURUDOM – EASY WAY TO MAKE MONEY?

guruFew years ago an aide of a female religious Guru came to me with an assignment to write fiction about the latter’s miracles and to boast her in the media. I refused.

He asked for reason. I told him that a huge number of India’s enlightened “god-men or women” are fake and end up in jail for financial irregularities, sexual abuse and, sometimes, even murder. Many of these godmen in India are simply savvy marketers with the ability to manipulate. I don’t want to be a part to cheat innocent public.

“As a journalist, don’t you know such allegations are conspiracy against gurus by anti-Hindus and media?” he said.

“Most of them, yes. Long ago, Alain Danielou (French historian) said in his book ‘Histoire de l’Inde’, that the British missionaries and the English media kept on floating rumours in British controlled newspapers about Hindu gurus performing black magic, of financial fraud, of sexual scandals, etc. This trend continues even today with a section of media…”

“There was umpteen arrest warrants against the Imam of Delhi. Did Indian police have courage to touch him?” he asked.

“Your logic would appear appealing to fundamentalists in other religions. But that’s an idiotic logic. It’s like saying: because all are corrupt what’s wrong in me being corrupt! Hindus do not have the responsibility to support fraud-godman-turn-Hindu gurus. A fake is a fake despite any religion he/she belongs to. I know that there are good Gurus with great love to humanity. But they are not as popular as fake godmen who create cult and make money.”Please continue reading at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N9PAGLT

    Dear Sir,

    True. I see a Aathangam (What is english equivalent worry? I do not know) in your articles
    about our citizens not trying to learn, safeguard and follow the sanathana dharma principl
    even to smallest extent possible.

    Will our Sathya triump again? What are its chances?

    Thanks for the share and care.

    Truly yours,
    V Raman

    I came to your website by chance and what a treasure trove of wisdom it’s. Many thanks for sharing your views.
    Could you please list down the Indian Scriptures/books that one should read apart from Geeta that you mentioned here?

    that will be great help.
