Those sex-crazed holy men in India are at it again, but this time the devotees are having none of it. Facing a revolt of their cash base, the various sects to which the sadhus belong are taking action:
While the Vadtal Lakshminarayan Gadi Sansthan sect has decided to minimise interaction between sadhus and disciples at hostels, the Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan, Maninagar, will hold meetings of priests and disciples to ‘purify’ their thoughts twice a week and do away with rooms alloted to separate priests or disciples.Problems between priests and young boys. Where have we heard that before?
The Narnarayan Gadi Sansthan sect, Kalupur, which organised a 3-day brain-storming session at Junagadh has also decided to issue new guidelines to its priests — one of which is to ban entry of boys to priests’ quarters.
