Guruphiliac Turns One Today!
File under: A Milestone in History
Wow! Today we've reached a major milestone in history. The very first blog that criticizes grandiose gurus from the regard of our interpretation of Advaita Vedanta has just turned one-year-old! That's about the same mental age that some of our readers find us to be. Huzzah!
We'd like to thank all the big time gurus who do more to prevent their devotees' self-realization than all the hookers in Thailand and heroin in Afghanistan. We look forward to continuing to be the South Park of gurudom and bringing you all the latest on how most of those who are purportedly divine are nothing more than ordinary narcissists in the throes of grandiosity and ego inflation; straight-up wackadoos who belong in a mental institution; or just plain, old, ordinary criminal con men and women.
We'd also like to thank the small cadre of assholes [Ed.note: That's a compliment, folks.] who continue to provide information and entertainment in the comments sections of this blog. You can find some really good inside scoop there on some of these over-stuffed buffoons also known as God to the duped and unsuspecting.
In addition, much appreciation is extended to Rick Ross and his CultNews.net, as well as the folks over at ReligionNewsBlog.com. Guruphiliac is heavily indebted to their efforts to report on the activities of the self-importantly religious. Finally, we must also not forget to thank Sarlo and the denizens at GuruRatings, where we cut our teeth and continue to enjoy discourse.
We look ahead to the coming year with vigor and enthusiasm. We hope to show that self-realization is not just the provenance of the allegedly saintly and supposedly divine, but is in fact the common birthright of all humanity, ever present and closer than anyone's own breath, right here and now, as if it were sitting on the tips of their noses.
