Why Isn't Gurusfeet Following the Laws of the Land?

rationalmind's picture

It seems like the Guru is trying to bring truthfulness, in his small way, to the Internet. If we are not truthful in all places, then truth will be degraded.

I think, Gurusfeet.com should especially work towards non-stealing, and adhere to the Internet as it operates, not without lawlessness. As laws are prescribed to this medium, Gurusfeet.com should do its best to uphold law and order in the Internet space.

It is not for us to judge what another does, but as long as they are following truthfulness. Gurufeet.com should not cast doubt on a Guru's character as they are trying to do by putting up a highlighted blue notice about a Master to whom they have not even verified if he himself has asked to remove his bio/content.

Gurusfeet.com should strive for authenticity, honour, and respect of the highest order in relation to the most paramount of subjects they are trying to bring forth in the world through their website.

It is the swami that doesn't follow the laws of spirituality

It seems that they do follow the laws of the land, it is this swami that doesn't follow the laws of spirituality.

If what gurusfeet published above is true (and I have no reason to doubt it because they have an excellent reputation) then it is extremely important that they disclosed it. I see it as a great service to us.

Be honest with yourself and make sure to tell the difference between facts and speculations.

What law of spirituality are you speaking of?

It would be interesting to hear from you something that actually has meaning rather than just your fluffy answer.

One should seek to question rather than follow blindly, or at least comment with such intelligence that one can take your comment as seemingly emanating from a person with a modicum of intelligence.

Why not give i it a second try?

I agree

I got the same impression. I don't think I ever heard about this swami (when I googled his name I saw that he is jailed for life, no wonder he tries so desperately to hide his biography and no wonder he is doing it in a manipulative way), there are so many who claim to be swamis, gurus, masters, teachers and so on, anyone can declare himself as such and have some other questionable guru to crown him and there you go, there will always be enough blindfolded people to follow regardless of conduct. So I wouldn't give much attention to this.

Talking Without Presence of Being

Dear Mr. Happy,

I am bewildered and amazed that you can put forth such a statement and judgement of another that is so wholly misinformed.

You have chosen to take the time to read, assess and cast statements that are derogatory and utterly misleading about Swami Sai Premananda.

The Swami you searched and claimed to be the same as the above is in fact not him. Swami Premananda, whom you are claiming to be Swami Sai Premananda, is a different person altogether. Swami Premananda of Trichy, who is in jail, is not the above Swami.

So, now what do you have to say to all your above hypothesizing as it was based on complete false information? I am going to try to get in contact with this Swami's organization as I now feel this is a case of defamation of character put forth by you and Gurusfeet against this Master.

Look how you have allowed yourself to fall into such a false belief based on utter untruth. Where else in your life have you made untruth the foundation for your beliefs?

Aren't you avoiding the facts to preserve your trust?

I understand from what you wrote that you want very much to defend your guru and this is ok but in the same time for your own benefit you must keep your eyes constantly open and stick to the issue and to facts rather than desperately use manipulations and demagogic hallow statements just in order to try to win an argument and in this way unconsciously cast the doubt that is probably within you about him otherwise you wouldn't bother.

I know it is extremely hard that the facts explode in your face, we all had such experiences of disappointment with past teachers and gurus and it takes time and enough more facts for the alarm to ring. It is part of the spiritual path and if handled sincerely it can yield an enormous benefit to the sadhka.

Whether he is the one who is in jail or not is not the main point (I read about a guru with the same name who has committed terrible acts and is in jail, maybe it is not him, I do not know, maybe this name is very popular among those who wish to be gurus :-).

The main issue is straightforward and simple:

anyone trying to gain control,

anyone trying to gain control over what is written about himself,

anyone trying to gain control over what is written about himself using manipulations (e.g. "copyright on bio"),

anyone who hasn't yet managed to deal with his mind's urge to control has a long way to go on the spiritual path, let alone be a guru.
