Sri Sri Fails To Save The Day... For Now

File under: The Siddhi of PR

India's savant of spiritual self-promotion, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, has left Jammu and Kashmir without securing a peace accord between the local separatist rebels and the Indian government. But the fact that the separatists actually attended the conference shows they may be moving a bit more toward the center than they've been before, making the conference something less than a complete loss and holding out the hope that Sri Sri may lose his "L" yet.

Before leaving the region, Sri Sri visited the famous cave of Amarnath, where a large ice structure shaped like a penis is worshipped as Shiva. This cave has a special significance for Guruphiliac, for it's where our hero Swami Vivekananda got all the manly crap kicked out of him by Mother Kali. It was a major turning point in his life. Unfortunately, it was all downhill from there for him. Such was the fate of the first bigtime guru in the West after he returned to India and was blessed to learn to not believe in his own hype.

It's just too bad everyone else picked it up for him instead.
