Samiyum Asamiyum _Chennai Edition
Swami and Ordinary Man
BELOW IS THE TRANSLATION OF THE ARTICLES
A Samiar will be a little dicey (this side that side) only; Some people are asking should you blow that up? This question shows that assessments have changed. The respect for the saffron today that once made king of kings kneel down and bow is only this much. The reason for the reduced respect is the persons who have been adorning it.
In the last 10 years, many Samiars’ ‘other side’ has come to light. Several Samiars who have moved around with devotees, disciples, ashrams and wealth in society have been exposed to be immoral in their private lives, cheaters, and people who don’t fear even to murder. In Tamilnadu which was the source of rationalist movement, the awareness about fake Samiars is more than in other states. Even then it causes worry to see that the number of people who believe fake Samiars and get cheated is continuing without a decrease.
Nithyananda, even though born as a Tamilian, established Karnataka as the headquarters of his spiritual kingdom, not only because the rulers there give respect to the ochre robe but also because the number of youth who are earning well due to their knowledge of software technology, fall into depression and seek relief is more there.
Pranayama, Meditation and Yoga are practices devised by ancient day Munis and followed till date. Charging Rs. 25,000 per person per day and saying we will teach these practices is real daylight robbery. When spirituality is made a business and designed in the lines of other countries’ company models, it is confirmed that profit is the main goal. Sin is renamed as lifestyle and crime as accident. Only one who has experienced can renounce. It is the rule that only after married life, renunciation comes. They went to the forest only and learnt control of senses. No one can control the hunger that is sitting amidst apples. Man is a book full of mistakes. It is not wrong to read it. Following it is ignorance.
