The Anonymous Saint

File under: Final Samadhi and Real True Gurus

She apparently was the real thing, that combination of spiritual understanding and compassion that Sri Sri Ravi Shankar so skillfully emulates in the masquerade of his false sainthood:
Pushpa Anand, a Hindu guru and social activist who worked ceaselessly for the health of Indian villagers and the empowerment of women, has died. She was 83.

None of the hundreds of thousands of people who benefited from her charitable work knew her name. Nor, indeed, did many of her disciples. She was known simply as Ma, whose dedication to the poor, especially women, inspired followers from around the world.

From the age of 34, she dedicated herself to several years of intense religious study and spiritual practice, and thereafter became known as Param Pujya (Her Holiness). But she always preferred Ma.
While the false saint Sri Sri spends millions upon millions celebrating himself, a real saint like Ma would have plowed that money right back into charity. Think about that the next time you attend another AoL birthday celebration.

Because I don't care about any popes or mullahs. It's Sri Sri's putting the con on folk that I care about. He is as false as the day is long.

I am beginning to become one of those believers that the fake and conning gurus have much more value to some people.

I never wanted to become someone like that. I always held out hope that truth is good and lies are damaging.

But now I feel some will not get catapulted into truth except by blindly following what their mind half-achingly craves, lapping it up for a few years or decades, and then getting completely disillusioned by it all and choosing to stand on their own.

So I say celebrate the saints and also bring forth more of these deluded and materialistic gurus so the world can hurry up and cure itself. And oh yeah, I also love some of Popemulla's music.
