There has been a ruckus in the people of south india specially with the 'new controversy',rife in the media on the sexcapades of a 'swami.'Always media wants sensational news and it sells too,specially when it is on sex and that too when linked with a 'celebrity'??? is this person a celebrity and what has he done wrong?? having consensus sex is not wrong,moreover the video doesnt show any real sexual discourse apart from some intimate scenes.I believe its just an intrusion into the privacy of a person,whoever he might be.I dont know whether he has proclaimed in open that he is a 'brahmachari'or that he is practicing celebacy for attaining the whatever called 'nirvana'.
The fault is in us, the people who believe in demi Gods and practice rituals that are superstitious and give credibility to these people who commercialise spirituality.
just consider our temples and Gods who sit there,they are just a media to earn money for sangathans and devaswoms.People flock around these temples for a darshana waiting in queues for long hours, at the same time any person with lot of money and contacts can feel the holy darshana in a jiffy.if he donates more money he gets special prasadam directly from the hands of the main 'poojari'..rubbish. We are in the thick of hipporcary and unbelievable beliefs.
This 'hot news' is the result of that hippocracy which lie in the system of each one of us.The person involved is a human after all and very basic one at that,which he proves with his actions that he is not a 'sanyasi' yet.He might be giving lectures on spirituality and seeking of ultimate truth,which anyone can give if he is a good orator and knows how to get into the psyche of a common 'superstitious man.
we must not see God in these people who present themselves to be one,the mere quality of a 'god' like person is that he never says that he should be worshipped and followed and the one who can think good for everyone,love everyone,and serve everyone,leading a simple life,being humble to the core . And hence,every human being is a God,its so simple,u need not give 'prabhashanams to be one,Mother teresa never gave one,why dont we read about her,why dont we think about her,why dont we at least think of doing even a little bit of what she has done? she never wanted any body to follow her or never had a 'fan'association.
people like martin luther king,Gandhi,Baba Amte,swami vivekananda,sri ramakrishn paramahamsa,jesus christ,Abdul kalaam and many and many more never said they were God.
When will we learn to worship them,to worship the real values and to worship ourselves....???
