    India is not as poor as they make us believe. To solve their problems they don't need money, they only have to do their homeworks in a spiritual and democratic view.

    "...The quality of life in India is very poor with zero accountability of clerks and babudom, rampant corruption, crimes,delays and adulterated goods.lack of basic amenities and non exiting judiciary...Rajendra Gupta"


    "India is today one of world's fastest growing economies. The Indian economy is the world's tenth largest in terms of nominal GDP and the fourth largest in terms of purchasing power parity.

    Purchasing power parity is the exchange rate that makes the cost of an item the same in two countries.
    According to the International Monetary Fund, India's nominal GDP stands at $1.53 trillion. In terms of purchasing power parity, India's economy is the fourth largest in the world at $4.06 trillion.

    India could emerge as the world's third largest economy by 2030, benefiting from strong domestic demand and favourable demographics, according to a Standard Chartered Global Research study.

    India is likely to grow faster, on average, than China over the next two decades, the study said.
    Even as India faces major issues like poverty, unemployment and corruption, there are many reasons to feel good about its economic boom and prospertiy."

    Some thoughts about the "uncle":
    His passing away was not exactly a textbook mahasamadhi, it did not fit the myth and it was never really discussed. Shortly after this, big O. was asked directly, if that departure was a mahasmadhi, as it did not show any of those signs mentioned. Big O. replied truthfully, that in fact, it was not such glorious end of a yogic life, he had "not accomplished the final goal."
    Nevertheless the annual celebration of his passing away is called "Holy G. mahasamadhi". Did nobody notice that discrepancy?
    It gets even better, as Sw. J.raj has announced, that big O. told him, that everyone in yidl will get "liberation" in this life.
    Some questions arise:
    What about the followers, who passed away before that proclamation? Bad luck? Better luck in next life? What about uncle?
    Has anybody further information on this, or more details?

    Reply to @Veritas: the same question goes for 'Mataji', she died only a few months ago, but will she be included in the "liberation" too? Her "departure from this physical world without a sign of pain or suffering" (although she had had an operation because of a perforation of the intestines shortly before) was described by her famous son as nothing less than "Samadhi". The day after her death they prayed that "her example of peace and love will spread towards all mankind". It's also mentioned that she was a Sadhvi the last 20 years of her life, so here we see again how celibacy is glorified (think about it, storymaker).

    All pretty pretentious if you ask me, but who am I. It's really a holy family, three holy people in one family! Will there be any more? I hope not for the followers, otherwise their prayers will get longer and longer if they have to pray to them all.

    Traditionally tomb of EVERY samnyasin is called "Samadhi" or sometimes "Samadh", and every passing away of any samnyasin is traditionally called mahasamadhi. Samnyasins are always buried, never burned because last rites can't be preformed for them. So mahasamadhi traditionally wasn't regarded as it is by some modern gurus in this strict technical sense. This whole enlightenment concept is a kind of cultural misunderstanding exploited by false gurus coming to west.
