The Guru Mutual Admiration Society
"Once, Satya Sai Baba along with his disciples went to Varadpur Ashram to see Swamiji [Sridhar Maharaj]. On reaching the Ashram, he asked his disciples to maintain perfect silence and declared 'Brahma' himself was performing 'Tapas' there. Swamiji came out of his cottage and blessed all."
What a jolly rum do, when Sathya Sai Baba - allegedly God incarnate - receives blessings from other saints! But that was not what caught my attention, it was this:
"Ma Anandmayi on meeting Swamiji declared 'We are all walking up the hill of 'Parmarth'. Path is narrow and extremely difficult. Established on the top of the hill is seen Sadguru Sridhar Swami Maharaj."
So Ma Anandamayi (aka Anandamoyi Ma) pays this Sridhar Maharaj a pretty high compliment. Careful readers will note that Ma Anandanoyi praised Sathya Sai Baba to the skies in a list of quotes collected by Ram Das Awle. Awle is a curiosity who set up a website to defend Sai Baba of the homosexual paedophilia charges levelled against him, where Awle contends that avatars engaging in sexual intercourse is justified under certain circumstances! He didn't manage this with inviting severe criticism, however, but here is what Anandamoyi Ma said (courtesy of Awle's list):
“This body will speak on this question only once; don’t ask again. Sathya Sai Baba is the most powerful incarnation of God ever to come to the Earth. And there won’t be another at His level for another sixty centuries.”
Yeah right. Even though Awle's list has been severely criticised for other gurus on the list (followers of Paramahansa Yogananda strongly refute that Yogananda spoke of or about Sai Baba). It's quite common for gurus to speak highly of each other, and why not? The guru business is a rewarding one indeed; spiritual aspirants are often referred to other gurus when it turns out that the aspirant is too much of a problem, in more or less the same way that psychiatrists refer patients to one another when their caseload becomes too much!
Sai Baba has been photographed at least twice in the company of Swami Muktananda, another guru who had sex with disciples under the excuse of working their Kundalinis. So with this article, we've come across an instance of Anandamoyi Ma's praising of another guru (Sridhar Maharaj) as being right on top of the 'paramartha' hill, and he was even highly praised by the Baba too! Looks like these gurus are all in the game and protect each other's backs.
