Amma Poops On Gandhi
File under: Amma All-Over-The-Planet and The Siddhi of PR
Keeping up the momentum on her continuing downward spiral, Ammachi has allowed the publication of this trashing of Mahatma Gandhi in her magazine Immortal Bliss:
Ghandi, on the other hand, took the momentous decision to give up truth for the sake of saving the innocent lives of a few, heeding the small voice of his consciousness. But, when he consented to divide the country, contrary to his wishes of gaining independence for India through non-violent means, what happened surpassed any massacre in the known history of the nation. The tragic story did not end there. Even today, the killing spree that started then goes on unchecked in the form of wars and skirmishes between India and Pakistan, as extermination of Hindus in Kashmir by militant groups, and as threats of an atomic war loom ominously over the horizon.Er... we suppose the swami who wrote this garbage has a better idea. Oh look! He does! When in doubt, just resort to superstitious nonsense to save the day:
Just imagine what would have been the course of history had Ghandi consulted one of the contemporary Mahatmas who could have foreseen the outcome of the historic decision. There were many, like Anandamayi Ma, Maharshi, Nityananda, Narayana Guru, Chattambi Swami, Yogananda and Mahayogi Aurobindo. He had met most of them and had great respect for all of them.Just imagine what any of those "Mahatmas" would have said. In fact, imagine seven different answers, because that's what you would have gotten, seven entirely different speculations by seven different people, the swami's ridiculous notion that they had access to some kind of objective divine wisdom notwithstanding.
Regardless of the swami's superstition-bound ludicrousness, the object of the article was realized, which was to present Gandhi as a bit of a dumbass for not going to a guru to find out what he should have done.
And thus, Amma and her swami shit all over Indian history in their effort to make her out to be the avatard of this age.
