What is irking much is surrender of wealth.
> Frankly, I dont see anything surprising here. We should not forget
that swamiji-s, nowadays, are also maThAdeesha-s and they are
unofficially running a widely established educational institutions,
hospitals etc. Though these organizations are in the name of some 'Trust'
for all the practical purposes, these swamiji-s words are final. Hence
they have to somehow 'raise' funds to run the show and challenges and
bettings like this will be a good opportunity for them to fatten their
'Trust' bank balances :-))
na karmaNa na prajayA dhanEna thyAgEnaikE amrutatvamAsasu:
> you will be surprised to know the charges they ask for the 'guru pAdukA
pooja' and personal visit of these swamiji-s. Yes, they know dhana will
not lead them to amrutatva but they need 'dhana' in vyavahAra:-))
vyAvahArika satya is something different from pAramArthika satya is it
Sanyasa is taken after sacrificing karma, family and wealth.
> OTOH, taking saNyAsa is an other way to embrace the bigger family in
the form of maTha, Ashrama, mission etc. :-))
To demand a sanyasi to surrender wealth ( something which he is not
own)is sort of unimaginable flaw from those who are supposed to uphold
> even jnAni-s like yajnAvalkya in bruhadAraNyaka openly claimed the cows
from janaka, what to talk about these swamiji-s who are shouldering the
huge responsibilities of running the institutions, hospitals, mutts,
schools and colleges :-))
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
PS : BTW what exactly the subject matter of this debate?? Sorry, I
cannot read that article in the web, is it about proving the one mutt
superiority over another??
