Guru Blesses Student's Plastic Surgery?
File under: Vanity of the Gurus
Did former SYDA meditation teacher Sally Kempton "refresh" herself as she embarks upon a career as a guru? Granted the blessing of her own guru, Gurumayi Chidvilasananda, to strike out on her own, Ms. Kempton is looking a lot fresher around the eyes and chin in the pic on the right.
It makes a lot more sense when one considers that Gurumayi herself is rumored to have had her own work done to her nose and cheekbones. Perhaps she has learned that if she keeps herself looking fresh and vital, people will be continue to be fooled into believing she is a divine being worthy of being worshipped by satellite TV every Sunday in SYDA centers all over the world. Because what is God if not pretty?
Update: We've gone ahead and asked Sally as to whether this rumor is true. She says it is not. Case closed and thanks to Jai Bhakti for staying on us about this.
