Sri Sri Ascends Once Again
File under: The Siddhi of PR
At the end of his successful North American tour, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has been bestowed another international religious commendation, the honor of a membership in the Martin Luther King Jr. International Collegium of Scholars in Atlanta, GA. Apparently, these folks were very impressed with Sri Sri:
He was recognized for embodying the ecumenical moral laws: a synthesis of philosophical ethics given flesh in Judeo-Buddhist-Hindu-Islamic-Christian scripture, tradition, and ancient African history by which King, Mahatma Gandhi and Dr Ikeda lived their lives and led the non-violent civil and human rights movements.We suppose that must now include the "ethics" of cowering when afforded an opportunity to speak out against racism-fueled genocide among his fellow Indians. Sri Sri gets the recognition (his speciality) and the Collegium gets stuck with its thumb up its ass, if they really are comparing him to Martin Luther King Jr., that is.
