Saamiyars Exposed

In tamilnadu, every now and then, there is a news about a saamiyar caught in a scandal..But then, those were local saamiyars (like the madipaakam saamiyar)..of course the greatest scandal would be the arrest of jeyandra sankarachaariyar [Now, the case is nowhere - that's another story by itself]..but yesterday, Nithyananda swaamigal - a bigger league spiritual guru was caught on 'A' -rated video and Sun TV went all out with the expose [My view: SUN TV shouldn't have streamed the video without camouflaging the explicit content...quite a shocker to watch it in living room TV]. Another set of big time 'spiritual gurus' - Kalki Bhagvan and his wife Amma Bhagvan's fraud is the subject of discussion in an Andhra TV.

I just wish, the people who flock to these 'spiritual gurus' pause for a minute and reflect on these developments..

Should wait and watch the next move...

Most new age gurus are creatures of media. They are introduced by them, feted, showered with laurels and then at last dumped.

This man might have "offended" any of the Sun TV's top management personnel (or atleast their kith and kin), hence, his scandal is brought to the limelight... poor guy... ;-))

Funny - nobody cared when he claimed to be a godman, but now people are furious after he has what's supposedly consensual sex.

There's a dialogue from Devar Magan near the end: "Pongada, poi pulla kuttingala padikka vaingada". Now's the time to take it to the heart.
