An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Questions for the Spiritual Masters!!

The other day I was listening to a Guru giving his discourse… and he was praising the importance of a “true” Master and how the enlightened who came – he cited Budhha, Guru Nanak, Christ etc – were PURE and “PERFECT”.

“They were Gods in human form!” …. and that

“No Master or Enlightened Guru came to earth to start a religion… its their followers who did that! These enlightened beings all gave the same philosophy of love and compassion.. and stated the same principles of Spiritual success”

.. and in that he chided the followers saying “How many Masters must you read or listen to before you get the message!?”

At this point a Basic Question hit me!

If .. these Masters or Gurus were indeed.. “God” personified… and so Perfection in Human form…. and they never intended to “start a religion”.. then HOW COME EACH and EVERY ONE OF THEM STARTED ONE!!!????

My questions to ALL the GURUS/MASTERS.. past and present and those that will come is – HOW MANY RELIGIONS must start before you BEGIN TO REALIZE that whatever you are doing is nothing but a prelude to a religion?? How many people must die from the religious madness… before YOU start taking RESPONSIBILITY of a GURU and Master….. “God Personified” .. … and if YOU CANNOT take that responsibility… then I DO NOT WANT to know the way to such an IMPOTENT… and TEMPORALLY LIMITED GOD!

So this thought train begs a question to me:

Is this “Spiritual Guru” business over the centuries the greatest smokescreen ever erected by ALL the spiritually “accomplished”???
