Ramdev Sells It In The States
File under: Gurus Clockin' Dollars and The Siddhi of PR
Ex-rancorous (or perhaps soon to be rancorous again) Swami Ramdev has come to conduct his New York and New Jersey yoga camps, and he sure was sucking up to his new friends (and future herd of sheep to fleece):
He also praised the US for assimilating the best from different cultures of the world and Americans for their openness to new ideas, which has led to a better quality of life here. "I consider these yogic qualities. We should respect that and learn from it," he said.And shear it for all it's got...
The fact is, there is more and more to get over here. Ramdev, Sri Sri and the rest are just coming on to what Amma has known for years, and that is that we're a bunch of suckers for this stuff.
Claim it's not religious, dumb it down for the masses and act like clouds of incense come out of your ass when you fart, and you'll have it made in the States as another big-time purveyor of sand at the beach.
