Gurumayi Eruption Imminent?
File under: Blogs of Note and Gurus Clockin' Dollars
Our colleague SeekHer at the Rituals of Disenchantment blog has some very big news:
Hey Jody! SYDA has announced "A Sweet Surprise" is in store for those willing to shell out $100 to hear the New Year's Day Global Audio Broadcast! Awesome!Many thanks to SeekHer for being our eyes and ears into the world of the mysterious vanishing guru, SYDA Yoga's Gurumayi, and the thousands of devotees she's left hanging.
Speculation as to the nature of the surprise, even among hard-core devotees, runs along two lines:
One: Gurumayi has returned! Cue the gospel choir and orgiastic applause!
Two: Nothing new! But, the ashrams and centers hosting the event will distribute "all day suckers" as prasad.
I'm conducting a poll at "Rituals of Disenchantment" to see which outcome the sangham is expecting most:
Given that South Fallsburgh doesn't exactly do focus groups I'm thinking they will be tuning in for a temperature check. If a majority of devotees say they expect her Guru-ness, will she show? If a majority expect to be hosed, will they at least switch the prasad to something that won't kill a diabetic?
Stay tuned. One thing is for sure. Should the Divine Miss G actually show, even as just an "oh-so-mysterioso voice from the past" I will sign on for the webcast and report back her pearls of wisdom.
Which was probably the best thing she could have done for them.
