Religious news site Yunus takes a close look at that master of press
But, as the previous analysis has shown, there is certainly enough grounds for reasonable doubt as well. So he might just as well be a man on search of money, fame and glory through Guruism. His blatant exaggerations and mystifications in presenting himself and Sudarshan Kriya seem at least to point in that direction.Trade those two sris for two "mes" and you get a much clearer picture as to exactly why the man called Ravi Shankar got into the guru business in the first place.
Or he might be a bit a fraud and a bit genuine. Again, he wouldn't be the first in that sense either.
In any case, the whole world should by now have enough memories of encounters with various guru's that are at least be a bit suspicious in certain cases. Certainly in cases like Sri Sri Ravi Shankar's, because it involves many many millions of dollars of which nobody really seems to know where they're going to.
So to use a spiritual word that for once was not exported out of India, it remains to be seen and heavily investigated whether Ravi Shankar is “kosher” enough to be given the Nobel Peace Prize or even the title of Sri, and certainly when using it in double.
