Miscellaneous comment(s) of mine on Facebook in Dec. 2017

I wrote as a comment on a Facebook post, https://www.facebook.com/terry.reiskennedy/posts/10215358637697979?comment_id=10215363787066710&reply_comment_id=10215367540360540, on 31st Dec. 2017:

Terry Reis Kennedy has been an inspiring and very courageous person who has relentlessly fought against Muddenahalli FALSE CLAIMS and has suffered from terrible verbal attacks on Facebook due to her relentless fight against Muddenahalli group. My considered opinion is that Terry has proved to us all that she truly comes from the land of the free and the home of the brave :-).

But there is also a point about being careful about reporting about rumours of any "golden handshakes" to Muddenahalli group people. Terry wrote in this post, "The rumors I hear dally of the "Golden Handshake" remain rumors." She did not state that the rumours are true. However, some persons may misread such statements and spread the view that PN ashram is offering "golden handshakes" to those who come back from MDH, which could create a lot of unnecessary confusion.

The return of people who supported MDH back to PN is a very sensitive topic, I guess. We need to perhaps handle this topic with a lot of care in our posts and comments. Thanks. Jai Sairam!

  1. The reality is that if the advent of Prema Sai occurs as foretold then his presence will be sufficient to bring his followers to him. If he dose not arrive, still thousands have made diligent effort to improve there spiritual practice. Expedient means is the Buddhist term, a promise that has a element of falsity in order to start the aspirant in there pursuit.

    As for fools with there money, they soon part.

    As for the future look at the history of the early church after Christs departure. Division split, then holy war and holy murder.

    I am lucky the closest I got to Swami in the physical was a little man in the distance. Thus I was spared the agony and the ecstasy of his presence. However I like many others have had a constant interchange with Swami over the years and this is something that protects us from this folly.

    To use the language of Vedanta if you are operating for the sheath of emotions then your experience of swami will be pinned in that sheath, If you are in the sheath of the intellect then that will be you bases, and if that is the cease you probably have already left the fold.

    If you are in the sheath of the buddhi intellect, the witness intellect then you should be practicing equanimity and loving kindness, until the grace of the guru opens up the sheath of bliss.

    This may be the advent of Prema Sai. God dwelling in your heart. Thus; 'you are the provider of self, the enjoyer of self, verily you are self itself.'

    1. Thanks for your views, Healionr. I consider it my duty to my beloved and revered Gurudev, Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, to do my bit to prevent innocent devotees from getting trapped by FALSE CLAIMS of Madhusudan Rao Naidu. It is not just about my individual (vyakti) spiritual progress. It is also about the legacy of my Gurudev being properly maintained and transmitted for future generations of devotees, and thus it is also about the spiritual progress and well-being of the collective/community (samashti). Jai Sairam!
