Something to chew over
I can’t explain the feeling when I saw Sachin Tendulkar break down and cry in front of Sathya Sai Baba. I am not a believer of this man. It’s hard to put in words what I feel about the way Sachin broke down. How much strong must be his faith? How much must be the connection or attachment he feels towards Baba? What could have probably instilled this kind of an immense faith in Sachin?
While I think about this, many questions are pounding my head. List of questions
Ø What draws people to saints (if ‘saint’ is the right word, or GOD men or just whatever) like these?
Ø How come predominantly only the rich people get drawn to them?
Ø If these men were indeed GOD, why is there still so much suffering on earth?
Ø How do people feel like believing these people after seeing the video footages of unimaginable sexual indulgence/political involvements? How strong must their faith be that they call any allegation against their guru a mere hoax play of the media?
Ø Is spirituality a lucrative career in India?
While I am still thinking, you guys can think too. Catch you soon with something interesting.
