Kids, Throw That E Away, Kriya Will Save The Day!
File under: The Siddhi of PR
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is in Goa, India, home of the hippy, happy beach rave, where he's naively telling folks there that kids will jump at the chance to breathe funny rather than have fun with drugs. He should remember that the next time he drinks bhang on Shivaratri.
Appealing to national pride, Sri Sri spoke of the "correctness" that India can bring to the world. As much as we love the mother of Vedanta and all that she has to offer, there's quite a bit about India that is far from correct, beginning with Sri Sri's grasping at name and fame wherever he goes... in addition to the blinding superstition, caste discrimination, anti-Muslim riots and the various other ethnic conflicts raging around that country.
Always the self-promoter, Sri Sri tells us that "only Indians can open the world's quality management institutes" just as he announced the opening of his own Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Foundation Management Training College in Goa, taking a page from both the Madharishi and the Kracki in his lust to establish yet another revenue stream.
We find it amusing that a guru who attempts to emulate Shiva is anti-drug and pro-business, the veritable opposite of where the Lord of Destruction is coming from. But that's the way the wind blows right now... and whichever way the wind blows, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is sure to go.
