Fake Guru Sex Scandal - 3 Mar 10

03 Mar 2010  Vrindavan, India

Children at lunch

More and more fake Gurus are exposed. Yesterday the TV news showed another Guru who does not really behave according to what he preaches. He claims to be a god and he sells enlightenment by giving Deeksha, an initiation, which costs you a good amount of money. The news was asking why God – as the man claimed to be – would ask for money for an initiation?

Just one day later, today, we received another news: another South Indian guru, who is actually very popular in the west, more than in India, was exposed by media. He calls himself Paramahansa Nithyananda and gives courses in enlightenment, too. About both these persons or organizations I have been writing on my diary already.

The TV channel showed a video how this fake guru Nithyananda is getting intimate with two different women. Just as I wrote in the last days, this man’s public appearance is the image of purity. I don’t think there is anything wrong with having sex; that is not the problem. But I wonder very much that these gurus give big lectures about enlightenment and being beyond worldly pleasures, preaching celibacy and on the other hand they enjoy having sex with their disciples. And he is by far not the only one, more and more of these fake gurus are exposed for having orgies, for pedophilia, prostitution and other scandals.

In the last days I wrote that sexual feelings are natural and this is why I believe you should not preach celibacy. And ironically those people who collect millions of Dollars through their image of being enlightened and the purest people on earth, abuse all their followerstrust by going into the other extreme – into a sexuality which comes from a sick mind, which no longer is how nature intended it to be. And you need to add that this way of sexuality lacks every respect of women. There is just no love, it has absolutely nothing to do with love.

I again think of those who believed these fake masters. How much will their feelings get hurt? Why is the indian culture polluted by this kind of fraud? You need to open your eyes now and see carefully if the person, whom you are donating hundreds or thousands of dollars to, actually lives what he preaches. Be aware. Don’t believe it if someone promises you enlightenment if you just pay him enough money. I said it before and I will say it again: you have your own guru inside yourself. Every one of us has access to this light, not just those who call themselves gurus.

In the late 60s and early 70s in the US, a great new interest arose in Eastern thought and there was a big influx of "gurus" into the US. When it became obvious to intelligent people within a short time that many of these gurus were sex exploiters, money hungry businessmen, and even alcoholics, the interest in Eastern thought here in the US ... See Moredeclined quite a bit. I sometimes think how much richer our culture might have been if these gurus were true to their teachings and their fine spiritual traditions. It's hard for me to conceive how having some extra dollars and sense pleasures could be more important to a guru than honoring the truth of Spirit, but I suppose these gurus had little real concept of this honor.

The divine light does shine within.. and it is a sadness that these things are happening beloved.. truly is.. my sadness is the knowing that there are so many mistaken over sex and love.. Looking outside of themselves for salvation when it was within all along.. I pray they find their way.. loving hugs always.. and healing light to those who need.. may they all look within and someday see.. -smiles

A guru who is not living within the boundaries his exalted status has given him, is not a guru but a fake. There are far too many, also on FB, who hide themselves under *faux* big names for their own benefit.
