Oneness… yeah right!

December 30, 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments

I don’t read tamil magazines a lot, but for the last couple of months I keep seeing in them advertisements endorsing what I believe to be the most dubious, nonsensical and probably the least appealing ‘divine couple’. Nicknamed as “Amma Bhagavan” , the male half has been around for a longer time in the name of “Kalki Bhagavan”… apparently the female half wanted in on the fetid glory showered on the male half by stupefied fools.

Propagating a preposterous and perverted philosophy of “Oneness”, all this “divine couple” and their group does is charge upwards of $5000 for their “oneness blessing” process trainings! (Damn! And here I am, having second thoughts about whether I should really pay $500 for my scrum master training! Life is strange!!)

And here’s the kill… from the FAQ page of the web site of the ‘university’ started by this… this… err… whatever

08. What is your response to the recent allegations against the movement?
We suggest that you follow your heart.

Yeah, follow your heart… fo..ll..ow.. yo..ur… he..ar..t! Nicely done! Couldn’t have thought of a better answer. Sounds like a Jedi from the Star Wars movies, doesn’t it? How else could they put the blame on the person if things went sour in the course of time for him/ her? “Hey! Your heart told you to join us! We didn’t! *shrug*”.

    The correct word should be “world”. Not “India”.

    You must have heard this line in a popular song… “Religion is the reason The world is breaking up into pieces”.

    I don’t agree with it because this is another instance of people blaming everything else except themselves for such problems.

    Religion is something inherent to humanity and human existence… regardless of where or when a person is born. Even if there was a situation where there is no religion, groups of people will still identify themselves with some practices and beliefs… hey, it happens even in the scientific community!!!

    Will science itself become a religion? May be it has already!

    HALF KNOWLEDGE IS ALWAYS DANGEROUS AND BAD AND WRONG NEWS TRAVEL VERY FAST.

    ACCUSATION ON ONENESS MOVEMENT AND AMMA BHAGAVAN ARE BASELESS.
    PERSONALLY I HAVE BEEN WITH THEM FOR MANY YEARS.
    AMMA BHAGAVAN AND THE DASAS LIVE A VERY SIMPLE LIFE.
    TO SAVE HIMSELF FROM TAXES HE COULD HAVE FORMED A ONENESS TRUST BUT INSTEAD HE FORMED A COMPANY NAMED GOLDEN SHELTERS PVT LTD. AND HE PAYS GOVT ALL THE TAXES ON TIME.
    HE TOOK A LOAN TO BUILD Rs. 450 CRORE ONENESS TEMPLE AND HE HAS ALSO ADOPTED AROUND 200 VILLAGES, SUPPORTING ALL THE NEEDS OF THE PEOPLE OF THIS VILLAGES. AND YOU SAY HE IS MAKING MONEY FOR HIMSELF.

    NOW PLEASE ANSWER MY QUESTIONS
    MANY PEOPLE WORLD OVER HAS BENEFITED BY ONENESS TEACHINGS, DEEKSHA, COMMUNITY SERVICE PROGRAMS OF ONENESS UNIVERSITY AND BLESSINGS OF AMMA BHAGAVAN. NOW MY QUESTION IS……
    HAVE ANYONE BEEN CHARGED ANY AMOUNT FOR ANY MIRACLE / EXPERIANCE OR FOR OTHER BENEFITS OF ONENESS MOVEMENT?
    2NDLY
    HOW CAN SUCH A GREAT MOVEMENT SURVIVE WITHOUT MONEY? AND IN YOUR OPINION HOW THIS MOVEMENT SHOULD RAISE MONEY FOR ALL THE GOOD WORK IT IS DOING?

    ONENESS MOVEMENT MAKE YOU TO PAY FOR THEIR COURSES THROUGH BANK AND THEY MARKET THEIR PROGRAMS. SO WHATS WRONG IN THAT? HELP THAT PERSON GETS, KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIANCE THAT YOU HAVE AND TRANSFORMATION THAT TAKE PLACE IN THIS PROGRAMS IS PRICELESS. I HAVE PERSONALLY SEEN AND EXPERIANCED MANY PROBLEMS GETTING HEALED. I HAVE SEEN RELATION, PROFESSIONAL, PHYSICAL AND OTHER PROBLEMS OF PEOPLE GETTING SOLVED. I HAVE SEEN PEOPLE OF ALL FAITHS AND NATIONALITY COMING TOGETHER TO EXPERIANCE ONENESS….. NOW PLEASE TELL ME YOU ARE GETTING ALL THIS FOR FREE. HOW MUCH AMMA BHAGAVAN SHOULD HAVE CHARGED YOU FOR ALL THIS BENEFITS?

    “HALF KNOWLEDGE IS ALWAYS DANGEROUS AND BAD AND WRONG…. AND YOU SAY HE IS MAKING MONEY FOR HIMSELF.”

    Very true. Seems like you pointed out your problem precisely. Why the hell would your amma bhagavan need to pay any taxed if he didn’t charge any money in the first place? I learnt spiritual science from a person who did not charge me a single paisa!

    For the rest of your post… the fact that you become so emotional in defending your position makes me think I am on to something.

    Let me be the judge of what is “greatness”. Putting a price on knowledge, spiritual knowledge to be exact, is equivalent to whoring your virtues. Besides, I have absolutely no interest or the stupidity to believe that the Mr. Amma and his wife are a divine couple.

    You talk of healing, experience, miracle… that does not make your swami a spiritual guru… but it does make him a hybrid between a new age cultist and a pseudo spiritualist.
