AUM Apostate Accelerates Away

File under: Gurus Doin' Time

AUM splinter guru Fumihiro Joyu took his cut of the AUM faithful on a 3-day pilgrimage around Japan that mirrored subway-gassing guru Shoko Asahara's same excursions in the early 90s.

The AUM faithful countered with their own retreat. It's the second time there's been dueling events that have split the congregation. Given AUM's penchant for terrorism and mass murder, Joyu had better be watching his back. But with AUM's fauxcotic leader jerking-off in front of his daughters on the way to a date with a noose, the fundie AUMies may soon face even more fragmentation as they see their fervent hope that Asahara will save himself with his omnipotent powers as Shiva die along with their guru in one quick drop through the chute.

But then hey, jody !
Tell me who according to you is a real Guru ? Do you have some names and their websites too? Do they exist at all according to you?

I wonder if you are trying to say that being a guru itself is a crime or you are trying to bust those gurus who dont fit your small conditioned mind's imagination?

While i appreciate many things you share, i have reservations about many other blind attacking you have resorted to.

Tell me whats the guarantee that the definitions of a real guru you probably have in your mind is proper?

while the Guru busting has become a need, are not we to think of busting the disciples who
who make 'avataars' out of a nobody?

And finally tell me if you know the difference between a teacher and a guru !

By all means i think you have the picture of a perfect guru who behaves like a school teacher who works 9 to 5 on the payrolls of some private school...

A real guru doesn't put themselves above their students in any way. A real guru doesn't claim to have magic powers. A real guru doesn't claim to be God anymore than anyone else. A real guru doesn't claim any special knowledge other than that of their own being. A real guru doesn't allow themselves to be worshipped. A real guru is a real human being and makes no attempt to hide this fact.

What does "worshipped" mean, Jody? If you wave an arthi lamp in front of your Guru and sing something from the Guru Gita, is that being worshipped?

By what you just wrote, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi is a real Guru. Once some Americans did puja to him rather than his own Guru and Maharishi flew into a snit that some say has lasted more than twenty years.

Ha ha! There infact many hundreds and thousands of such gurus exist on this planet around the world.
Ofcourse you cannot identify them because they never get the limelight. The mass never mill around them for the simple fact they have nothing magical in them except the 'true self'. The Mass needs a good sheperd who is capable of the miracles -Be it Krishna or Jesus ! Nobody likes to be around a plain guru with no halo
and offers 'Nothing'.

Its human to think that someone who is superior should be able to perform something different from the rest of all of us. Like batman crawling the walls and superman soaring the skies etc.

The god like guru is expected to do something different from which you and I do always. Aint that the reason why they wear particular clothes, walk on wooden sandals, fast, observe a hundred austerites,
celebate, blah blah !
Because when you know the Guru poops on the same pot, then you are disappointed in a way !
So the Guru is forced to bluff that he never poops ! ha ha !

Perhaps the world press would find it a bit lesser quality to cover such gurus and even you would hesitate to call them as gurus and write obnoxious things !
(you may not have anything that can chew our brains too !)Ha ha kidding !

The glamour and glitz and the handful of miracles is all what the world (the majority) expects from a Guru. Who ever fits the bill gets the limelight. More the demand greater the supply..

You may continue to punch your keys harder to bust and break the gurudom. But it will keep thriving.
You are probably already scorned and laughed at by someone this moment, as an disappointed ex or a dissilusioned dropout...sorry about that, but buddy you will realize that, when you eventually shut this blog someday in sheer disgust.

Watchout !!!!

Yep.

I guess I forgot to mention that gurus on psychotically grandiose missions to bring the Golden Age don't qualify.

I know. Those are the ones who need to be held up as the correct example.

Ofcourse you cannot identify them because they never get the limelight.

I know a good number of these type.

The mass never mill around them for the simple fact they have nothing magical in them except the 'true self'.

That's because the mass has their heads up their ass, all due to the occluding nonsense pimped by big-time gurus.

The Mass needs a good sheperd who is capable of the miracles -Be it Krishna or Jesus ! Nobody likes to be around a plain guru with no halo and offers 'Nothing'.

Poor mass. They don't know a good guru from the hole in their ass.

Its human to think that someone who is superior should be able to perform something different from the rest of all of us. Like batman crawling the walls and superman soaring the skies etc.

It's not human, it's stupid. But I guess that's what makes it human.

The god like guru is expected to do something different from which you and I do always.

No such thing as a god-like guru. They are only god-faking gurus.

Because when you know the Guru poops on the same pot, then you are disappointed in a way! So the Guru is forced to bluff that he never poops ! ha ha !

It's not a guru's job to cater to his/her students expectations. Gurus who do that are not being gurus, they are being actors.

You are probably already scorned and laughed at by someone this moment

I am scorned and laughed at by thousands, I hope.

Watchout !!!!

What am I watching out for?

Waving the arthi light is a simple show of traditional respect, as is pranamming. It does not carry the idea that the person being honored is a God. I have seen Shree Maa of the Devi Mandir offer arthi to her own devotees and bow to them.

Fine. He's still a grandiose nutbag is he thinks he's going to provide the world with its next government,
among all the other loony things he's doing.

"Waving the arthi light is a simple show of traditional respect"

You are wrong falseguru. In India, you wave an arthi for god or dead people.

I wasn't commenting on Maharishi but on the waving of lights to the Guru as a show of respect, not of God like worship. I owe Maharishi a lot and still consider him a loon.

I may or may not be wrong, not being an Indian or wanting to be one. But regardless, waving the light is not necessarily the same as fawning worship of a human being so that you can get money and miracles out of them.
