another godmanSant Asaram Bapu was accused of rape One would imagine an accusation like this would drive Bapu’s millions of followers awayinstead his devotees tried to beat up TV journalists who wanted Bapu’s sound bytes before he went incognito Since public memory is shortthis is the same guru who wondered why the young girl who was gangraped on a bus in Delhi didn’t call the rapists “Bhaiya” to make them stop Clearlynuanced opinions are not a requirement to amass a following in India What you say is of no consequence As long as you have a flowing white beardsaffron or white garments and a commanding voice that can hold sway over a desperately vulnerable audience who need someone to worship Asaram Bapu is hardly the first spiritual guru to be accused of sexual misconduct Almost every wildly successful sage in India right from Chandraswami to Sathya Sai BabaSwami Sadachari and Maharishi Mahesh Yogi have faced similar allegations Till recently most escaped unscathedtheir popularity undiminishedtheir charismathe hallmark of every spiritual leadermaking people blind to reason Self styled gurus and godmen are as much a tradition of India as the Taj Mahal and Red Fort As a nationwe’re resistant to rationalism Some of the smartestmost successful people in this country continue to be immersed in astrologyancient rituals and wear shimmering stones in the hope they’ll be protected from disaster We’re all responsible for propping up these self professed saints A consultant I know happened to be seated next to the head of a prominent ashram in a first class cabin on a flight to Singapore A religious man himselfhe was appropriately deferential They got chatting and the guru talked about the logistics of their biannual satsangs in Delhi which over 9

interesttaxesdepreciation and amortization) Spirituality is big business and before the flight endedmy friend knew he had met a potential client in this mystical entrepreneur I guess there’s nothing wrong with a cult making money while providing spiritual salvation as long as the promoters aren’t molesting the devotees The commodification of the Eastern spirit world began when the Beatles discovered Mahesh Yogi Since thenthe ashram experience in India has been a must-do on the list of every Westerner seeking an alternate route to peace and fulfilment As Indians living here we should be wiserconsidering we’ve grown up seeing many a stoned sadhu or guru make a quick buck off us Dodgy stories of unscrupulous saints from remote corners of India still routinely continue to make headlines But the allure ofmaybestumbling on something magical that’s going to happen in our lives is too strong and takes many of us back to crystal ball gazing A random check with five people around me revealedthey have all been to a soothsayer or faith healer at some point I am loath to admitthat I have been to a tarot card reader and two astrologers over the yearsnot one of whom got a single detail right about my future It’s been awhile since I’ve given up on divine intervention or comforting prophecies to sort out my issues but just yesterday a friend convinced me to sign up for an “Inner Engineering” meditation course that he insists will change my life (for the better) So farreformists like Dabholkar may be outnumbered completely by traditionalists but one can sense the power of these self proclaimed god men is also not what it used to be The recent number of horrific crimes against women question the ‘Enlightened India’ tag we’ve been burdened with We may have a million
