The new scandal

The latest scandal has left me in pain more than anything else. Mostly at the news channel and it's affiliate news paper. They just took journalism to a whole new low. The whole episode just leaves more questions than anything else (as in how the footage was shot deep into the close quarters of two peoples privacy, how did it then get out, and why is that lady's face blurred - the team seems to be happy to expose just the god man and not the lady).

Mainly, now, it is going to make more people not want to touch the spiritual path or a process with a ten feet pole.

Note:  This is deliberately ambiguous as I want this post to fly under Google's radar. I am no moral police, but surely wouldn't want the entire world to watch whats going on in my bedroom. In that sense, this whole issue lacks basic decency and doesn't warrant dissecting the rights and wrongs of it.

they started showing the female's face from Day 2. Donno why they hid it on day 1.

What I think about NP is immaterial (hint: cringe, cringe)

Yes, all god-men will be targetted. Sadhguru had said there are thousands of fraud doctors, scientists too, but we don't conclude all of them are wrong. Spiritual people are cursed more because people become emotionally attached too.

Gloaters/Smirkers will gloat/smirk.

I am not concerned about the self-styled intelligentsia that smirks at all the devotees/Sadhakas who are in search of something they themselves cannot put a finger on.

It is more about the people who were about to take a step in and will now take ten steps back.

BTW, all those folks breaking the glasses of the ashram - are they the ones who are concerned about the fate of such people? LOL!
