GuruLib: Book Makes Us Look Like Sycophants
File under: Reference Library
A reader brought this book to our attention: Stripping the Gurus: Sex, Violence, Abuse and Enlightenment. While we haven't read it and can't vouch for the research, it apparently reveals that one of our guru heroes, Swami Vivekananda, used to frequent brothels.
That just makes Swamiji so much cooler! Author Geoffrey D. Falk must either have access to information heretofore unknown, or he is one hell of a hatchet-job artist. Needless to say, we'll have to get our hands on a copy to catch up on the supposed sexual adventures of our favorite and oft times bombastic Hindoo Monk.
