There is this buzz, which has gotten Auroville buzzing, like a hornets nest.
It seems that some people are filing a court case against the Sri Aurobindo Ashram.
I’m sure Auroville and the Sri Aurobindo Ashram has had a fair share of these Fake Fakirs or tubelight visionaries who travel the world professing they know the path.
A few years or lets say exactly 19.256 years ago, there was a huge amount of these fake fakirs landing up in Auroville.
I remember two distinct ones that till this day make me giggle uncontrollably 🙂
There were two Russians, one a women and the other her interpreter.
They came to Auroville and word spread like wild fire, that they could heal our Karma Holes… yep you got it right, HEAL OUR KARMA HOLES… well anyway, believe it or not where else would such people give this so called healing life gift??? Anyone? Well, you might have guessed it, the health centre! You should have seen the huge line of Aurovilians waiting for their Karma holes to get bandaged or even better…erased!!
The other was this man from Russia who came to the Information Centre to give a talk … so i went there out of curiosity to see what this man had to say….When i arrived i saw the (old) video room upstairs full of people and at the front was this man with jet black hair and a jet black beard but his face was pale as wax, strange huh? Yeah that’s what i thought too, at that point i wondered if he used axle grease or dyed it with an el-cheapo product.
So, after a few minutes of silence this person again, with his very own interpreter said that he could stop his heart for 15 minutes, at first the people in the room were amazed until one smart fellow (i don’t recall his name) in the audience said to this fake fakir, OK then prove it! The fakir first tried to explain that it will take a lot of time for him to prepare blah blah blah, but then the room all wanted him to prove it. After a few more minutes this FF seemed noticeably annoyed with everyone as no one fell for his BS and he left the room.
