Me Me Dances For Donkeys And Elephants

File under: The Siddhi of PR

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar's PR ninjas have disseminated the news to the Indian media that he's going to prance in front of big-time politicians and their wonks in Washington D.C. tonight:
The confirmed speakers include Majority Leader of the House of Representatives Steny Hoyer, Delaware Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr and California Congressman Jerry Lewis, according to the Art of Living Foundation.

Other Congressmen who will attend the function are Joseph Crowley, Joe Wilson, Diane Watson, Sherrod Brown, Janice Schakowsky, Melissa Bean, Jesse Jackson Jr, Chris Hollen, Jim Gerlach and Frank Pallone.
Me Me's message to the dignitaries: the same don't-worry-be-happy bullshit he's rode to his current levels of name and fame in India.

We imagine when all is said and done, the school-of-hard-knocks warriors who live around the Beltway are not going to be all that impressed. As much as Me Me might like to think otherwise, getting the inner city gangs to hyperventilate themselves into a placebo effect activation will not be as easy as hoodwinking India's burgeoning technology class.

But as always, Me Me comes off the holy peace-bringer and savior despite the utter ineffectualness of his efforts. Perhaps his lust for an ever-increasing amount of name and fame has blinded him to the mistakes of his daddy, the Maharishi, whose eponymous "effect" was supposed to have cured all social ills years ago. Or maybe he's purposefully following in his daddy's footsteps, knowing full well that while there may not be more peace resulting from his visit, he'll still reap the PR cheer and plant his name in that many more minds, which is really what it's all about for the snake oil salesman flimflamming conman consummate showman holy beacon of all that is good in the world.

Update: As of 8:45 PM Mountain Daylight Time, not one American news organization has reported on the launch of Sri Sri's "stress-free, violence-free" initiative yesterday, according to Google news search. We hear this severe failure by the AoL PR ninjas has resulted in 8 acts of harikari.

Actually, Sri Sri and the US congress are a brilliant fit. Now that Congress has voted to end a war by funding it, the logic of which defies belief, it is perfectly poetic for it to wrap its perfidy in the highest possible order of rhapsodic bullshit. Here's the visual: Orwell takes it in the ass while all the aforementioned hold hands and chant OM. War is Peace, Ignorance is strength.

hmmm, you know sometimes I cant help feeling that Gurus like Sri Sri, no matter there motivation, is actually doing a good thing by taking spirituality in to the world of power and politics. It might sound weird but maybe it will open eyes for some people that spirituality is of least the same value as all the garbage of the world of politics and power. And as discrimination evovlves with meditation they will be able to liberate them self from what is not truth. Same story as with the pure devotee who no matter the merrits of the master will go to the right place. The same way maybe this will open some peoples eyes for the right priority of spirituality, and there by put them on the path of realisation. So the Sri Sris of this world will do the job of the self no matter what motivations they themselves might have.
Du no... just a thought.

sri sri has an assigned group to take care of... wealthy, upscale, corporate... they would all be drinking scotch and chasing each other's wives, but instead they have sri sri... he is a very good teacher for beginners to the "path", dislike the word, but what else to say... he is doing his job impeccably, nothing more to be said...

Well well.. what ever said and done, any one with a clear mind and an iota of intelligence free of prejudice and malice can and will know that the world is indeed benefiting from the activities of people like Sri Sri.

Let any of these evil mongers including you work and produce results a millionth of what these Genuine people like Sri Sri Ravishankar and countless others do for the world at large, then we will all join hands with you.

My dear ones, it is very easy and silly to keep typing out vain things criticising the good work of others than getting in to it and toiling hard! Keep going... I guess thats all that you guys can do :)

Err... make that a mind lacking in critical thinking skills that is easily swayed by flowing clothes and a squeaky voice.

then we will all join hands with you.

No thanks. Who wants to be allied with dupes and patsies?

My dear ones

Passive-aggressive salutation noted.

Me Me Ravi Shankar is naked ambition clothed in white robes, a seething cauldron of lust for name, fame and power. But keep drinking that Kool-Aid. It's the Pollyannaish sheep like yourself who keep Sri Sri in business. Without you he will not realize his fervent desires for world-wide recognition, despite the fact he's known to be a cruel and spiteful little man by those who have traversed his inner circle.

Sheshardi,
You wrote, on your blogspot which is mentioned here:
"An Initiative of the well known Sri Sri Ravi Shankar ji of the Art of Living fame, called " TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION " , a conference where in numerous members and organisations from the so called upper AND lower caste Hindus took part with an aim to bring about unity and build mutual trust"

Are you aware of Ravi Shankar's aversion to the mixing of Indian hindus and foreigners? Yes, he tolerates it to some degree at the ashram, but has privately severely punished at least 3 disciples who made the "mistake" of falling in love with the opposite (hindu Indian with foreign person). In one case, he went so far as to defame the family of one of the Indians who refused to give up alliance with a foreign person. As far as I'm concerned, this guy is evil incarnate, with a nice robe, some siddhis and a good sense for business. You have been duped by his endless and expert PR campaigns and his brainwashed, pathetic followers.

Anon says... evil incarnate, Jody ...cruel, this is truly hilarious at best ! Agreed Anonymous might be with Sri Sri for some time, but your definition of evil incarnate is truly funniest at best :)

Well this unique "evil incarnate" then of yours surely has a great power to bring out all the qualities of the opposite of "evil incarnate" in people. He definitely does not have the siddhi to show his cruelty with people in the world.

Maybe in "private" is "evil and cruel"; he may well continue to be one, why should I or anyone care!

You sure have some set concepts of how someone ideal should fit in your tiny 1 inch by 1 inch box..;)

First concept: a lack of hypocrisy. That sure leaves Me Me out of it.

Really?

OTOH I find people who decide to follow him do not show any marked difference in qualities except for greater gullibility and stupidity.

Well, I cleared that test!.

Sri Sri has duped millions of people around the world. I must have duped a dozen; or may be ten; well, at least more than one. That makes my feat more than one millionth of a million.

Where is your hand?

Please Shehhadri, tell us what makes that SS "Genuine".
And tell us where does it comes the idea that one should save the world.
And tell us, what is it, that makes you one of his followers, and what do you take from it.
And tell us why do you put your power out into him.
And make yourself a favour, and put SS at the same step where u are...(or opposite) don't worry, the siddhis will eventually come,... and the $millions also... you only have to be convinced that you was born holly, with a "mission" to take advantage of millions of good hearted people, that are are lost and have no ability of discernment.

............

You've got style freefall! There is talk that She She's drive to save the world is really just a little boy trying to show up his big daddy, Maharishi. It will be very hard for him to do this in terms of achievement or folly. Achievement wise, Maharishi kick started the meditation revolution around the world and gave a huge push. As far as folly goes, who could top Maharishi crowning a king of the world, and creating his own government and monetary system. Maharishi is likely nuts but She She remains a little boy jacking off in his closet!

We hear this severe failure by the AoL PR ninjas has resulted in 8 acts of harikari.

~~~~ JODY Did you mean to say
harakiri? I was trying to figure
hiarkari as you have spelt.
But if you meant to describe japanese death ritual, then it must be harakiri. But in the west i ubderstand it is usually spelt as harikari..whatever that is, whew,,,, sound gruesome !!!



Library > Words > Webster 1913 ha·ra·ki·ri
ha·ra-ki·ri n. (ha̤"ra̤*kē`rĭ)
[Jap., stomach cutting.]
A ritual form of suicide, by slashing the abdomen, formerly practiced in Japan, and commanded by the government in the cases of disgraced officials; disembowelment; -- also written, but incorrectly, hari-kari. W. E. Griffis.

Who cares how this shit is spelled as long as She She commits it! Semblance I'd say your fart chakra has been blown wide open!

ChuckJi said>>>>>Who cares how this shit is spelled as long as She She commits it! Semblance I'd say your fart chakra has been blown wide open..

~~~~ No chuck ! Mine is quite a trimmed butt. Its rock hard and does not blow off. Im as crazy with my sit ups as I am with my weekend lays. 5 days a week I pump iron and work on my inhouse jym. You may need to really search for my lower chakras on those days. Ofcourse once when the bonfire of golden weeds with dancing flames and tongues of fire is burning, like they do in the burning ghats at varanasi, where the weeds spew smoke to the high heavens and beyond, my fart chakra indeed opens during such occasions. But it sure remains within my control without getting blowned up.
Because during the workin' hours I dont like my butt rattling without reason....

However chuck, i always ponder how does a triple wide manage to open his F chakra with all the mound around??

..........

Where to begin after that kind of revelation. What is Jim's last name? He must be quite a big fellow to open your fart chakra so wide!

I have developed my own system for understanding, called the "Chuckra System" rather than the archaic "Chakra System". By living all of my life on a diet of soul food,and following such bellowing breathings as taught by She She, my own Fart Chuckra is permanently wide open. You could drive a Dodge Ram through there. In your case, Semblance, by the sound of your daily Jim work out, you may aspre to having a 16 wheel Peter Built rig driven through yours! The actual dimensions of the Fart Chuckra opening is purely spiritual and does not relate to physical size. As present, physically, I am a double wide, while spiritually I aspire to triple wide status. With She She's inspiration, I may well make it in this incarnation!

Chuck, as an old Guruphiliac friend, please stop with the Fart Chakra and the Fart Chuckras! We can only take so much...

~~~~ chuck, i think you are talking about the astral plane?..
Though i had been aware of the fact that you were a master of the F chukra dynamics, this is a direct experience to read your wisdom so explicitly on such subtler substance. Kudos to you
chuck. I think by the smell of it you can tell a double to the triple wide, with your eyes closed. Jody must be proud to have such a evolved disciple like you.

Ofcourse I Am always delighted in your wise association
has triggered my F chukra tremendously. But chuck...I heard you are conducting a weekend intensive on f chukra dynamics..
is that true ? May she she's grace multiply more and more upon you in all the rest of the years to come till you really kicked bucket in dimebox on that fartful day...

are sri sri rabid shankar and toad/fish face prawat, oops i meant prem rawat brothers?
if not, they should be, or may be they are and they want to keep it a secret? may be sri sri and rawat should legally tie the knot or do shows together, call themselves the 'the two, two faced, face of spirituality show'
they'd rake in millions....
