Spiritualism Redefined

No more the need of the HIMALAYAS  ; no more the need to renounce family or practice austerity and penance  -today the gurus have it all and that too in a  corporate five star  setting -the ashram- lush green lawns spread over acres of land ,(generally bought at a very cheap price from the govt., or free -a gift from a ‘bhakta’),modern amenities ; a lavish life style with a  diet of fruits and juices  in the name of good health ;modern spas offering traditional Ayurveda massages ……..these ashrams are  not only launching consumer products competing with international brands but also organizing  mega shows , events ……the  ashrams have  a global spread and network (earlier it was a cave in the mountains or some remote unvisited area )
