┬┐Why spiritual INDIA has apropiate ilegitimately our land in Haridwar with phisical violence?

Why some western people still think that India is Gandhi? Why was a western woman Mother Teresa the one who gave a good lesson to all indians of love instead sadhus and ashrams people?Why Haridwar use phisical violence against handicap spanish NGO member to apropiate ilegitimately our land in Kankal Jagjetpur Haridwar? Why european need to make more than 100 days hunger strike in the supose country of angels and spirituality?Why some polititians are looking for their own interest instead of the poors and sufferings brothers?

Exactly. I was about to ask this very question.

India – El Sadu



Wandering With Sadhus


Wandering With Sadhus


$23.07


In this moving ethnographic portrait of Hindu renouncers-sadhus or ascetics-in northern India and Nepal, Sondra L. Hausner considers a paradox that shapes their lives: while ostensibly defined by their solitary spiritual practice, the stripping away of social commitments, and their break with family and community, renouncers in fact regularly interact with householder society. They form a distinctive, alternative community with its own internal structure, but one that is not located in any single place. Highly mobile and dispersed across the subcontinent, its members are regularly brought together through pilgrimage circuits on festival cycles. Drawing on many years of fieldwork, Hausner presents intimate portraits of individual sadhus as she examines the shared views of space, time, and the body that create the ground for everyday experience. Written with an extraordinary blend of empathy, compassion, and anthropological insight, this study will appeal to scholars, students, and general readers alike. *Author: Hausner, Sondra L. *Series Title: Contemporary Indian Studies *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 247 *Publication Date: 2007/12/05 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.25 x 6.44 x 0.76 inches

What makes someone a Sandhu , a Sant or a Sadvi ?

India beats every country hollow while it comes to over production of so called Sadhus etc etc . We are over crowded by those Sadhus who are seen this side or that side of the political parties in India . Do they have ration card? Do they have a Voters ID card ? Do they have Credit Card ? Do they pay EMI for the Apartments they are seen living in comfortably ? What is that labels them the so called Sandhu ETC ETC.
this JJ Singh needs a little bit training on manners . His Yahoo name suggests his insane characteristics.We are watching you as well.
Mr J j Singh stop behaving like a big Dada . Your ICONIC name suggests your ill-doctrinated soul not at peace with this lovely world. cool down and get lost.

bcoz indians are too generous with money when it comes to sadhus
free riders and pests of the society

sadhu in india
if i renounced everything.. sadhu/sadhvi style?

my possessions, my family.. and became a sadhu or sadhvi yogi.. how would i survive? would i be safe in India? what if i became enlightened and lost track of business as usual and overstayed my VISA? how do people follow the spiritual path in India?

There are certain places in India where you can be to live. But dont you feel if you renounce everything you need not to change your place or simply your life style. You can minimise your desires, but there is no way to cut off your needs.

Give a second thought to it.
