Have you seen that? Alarming!

I was shocked to read the recent events in http://www.gurusfeet.com/guru/sai-premananda, has anybody been aware of this? Sounds frightening to me.

I was a bit doubtful in the beginning and so I followed the links in the opinions and of course got convinced that something very wrong is taking place in his courtyard and naturally in his mind (unless some stupid followers filed it in his name and disgraced him).

I think there is something odd with those gurus who picked the name Premananda: one is in jail for life for rape and murder, one is questionable by people who knew him in tiruvanamalai and Lucknow, and now the third is using brutality and deceit to gain control over what is written about him in websites.

I hope his followers are aware of that unless they are too brainwashed to understand the facts. I hope he has the minimum self awareness to be aware of his problem and consequently not to dare to pose himself as some spiritual guru but to start working on his own spiritual state.

Probably disciples around him who do harm to his name

I can't believe he is involved in this. It is probably the same old story of a problematic administration staff around the guru that does inappropriate things "in the name of the guru" - it happened to greater figures than him such as Osho, Krishnamurti, Sai Baba so why it can't happen to anyone else?

I'm not surprised at all

I'm not surprised at all - we are in an era of free spirituality but it has a down side: many self-appointed gurus and many wannabe's and many deceptions, it doesn't matter what you know and in what state you are - you just need to pick an impressive title, desire to be a guru, arrange a group of disciples who are naive enough, put a website with some slogans about life and that is enough nowadays - some will compile some story of enlightenment (distance from these immediately) based on some nervous breakdown, mental event or just a pure fabrication.

The saddest part in all that is that these "gurus" themselves need help of all and have a way to go but their self perception as evolved prevents them from evolving and they are stuck where they are. They are the main victims of themselves, not their poor disciples because the disciples will recognize the impurity at some point and depart, these fake gurus usually cannot.

I would not take this swami too seriously. India and the whole world is full of such. It may be himself that is doing this self-centered struggle.
