The Tantric Yoga Cannot Replace the Ultimate Liberation---Speaking about the Harm of the Tantric Yoga Based on Guruji's Visit to Taiwan (Reproduced) Published:2012/08/30 08:00
(By the True Heart News interviewing team in Taipei)In April 2012, Indian yoga guru Guruji (Sri Sri Ravi Shankar) was scheduled to visit Taiwan to lead an event entitled “A Music and Mass Meditation Gathering” for ten-thousand people and to teach advanced yoga. The public has developed a fascination for his breathing techniques and people are flocking to learn about them. Lately, this global trend of interest in Indian Yoga is making its way into Taiwan.
On June 20, 2011, Profil, an Austrian magazine, published a special article on Indian yoga guru Swami, the founder of “Yoga in Daily Life,” who was accused of sexually abusing many of his European female students. These female students spoke from their own experience when they revealed that the yogic guru Swami uses sex as a cultivation means. They told of how their passion in pursuing liberation of mind and body led them to the abysmal fate of being used as sex tools, resulting in lifelong sorrow.
Based on the collective experiences of the female victims, one can see that modern people live in a world of scientific advancement but feel increasingly overwhelmed by a sense of inner emptiness and vulnerability. Contemplative meditation, breathing techniques, Divine love… all sorts of things seem to offer them self-salvation, an escape from the sufferings of life.
Yoga practice and Shiva worship originated in India. Both emphasize that through the guidance of gurus, people can feel Divine love and, during contemplative meditation, the followers should wholeheartedly dedicate all and everything to the Divine. As one could guess, such practice finally results in the cliché of female disciples being requested to offer their bodies in order to bring forth Divine love through sexual union with the gurus.
Those selected female disciples have been brain-washed over the years by chanting mantras during group cultivation: that my guru is perfect, that my guru is all I have, that my guru embodies Divine love, whatever my guru requests shall be given without deny, and I am willing to offer all to my supreme guru. Due to this deeply embedded mentality, when asked by the guru to undress and have sex, the female followers totally surrender their bodies and minds to the guru without the slightest hesitation or doubt. It is not until they are sexually assaulted, that they are shocked into recognizing that their seemingly “serene saintly guru” is nothing but a licentious ordinary being.
Similar cases happened earlier in San Francisco, USA. In August 2002, the founder of the religious organization "Sri Chinmoy Centre"- yoga guru Sri Chinmoy- was accused by one of his female disciples, Sevika, of being used for sexual practice with him. Sevika reported that Sri Chinmoy has several sex partners at the same time, all being female disciples of the inner circle. Sevika criticized that Sri Chinmoy had approached her in the name of soul purification and beguiled her into a “now or never” chance. She was raped by Sri Chinmoy and since then was treated as his sex slave for the sexual practice.
As a member of the guru’s sex harem, it was of vital importance to be at his disposal at all times; otherwise, the disciple would be severely scolded, or even threatened with loss of the position or expulsion from the group. Among Chinmoy’s sex partners, some of them knew each other, and some did not. Sometimes, two or three of them would travel along with the guru, having group sex throughout the journey.
These two internationally renowned yogis, Chinmoy and Swami, are recognized as highly cultivated Indian Yoga masters, whose practice methods are derived from Yoga cultivation that has the special feature of emphasis on Divine love and oneness with the Divine. However, this kind of practice requires the sexual union of physical bodies to experience “Divine love and blessing.” These Yoga gurus are adept at instructing their followers in contemplative meditation to attain a sense of tranquility and inner bliss. Some followers are even able to feel the tremendous Divine love of the universe. Having been touched by this feeling of great love, faith in the guru becomes even more solid.
If the final goal is to be one with the Divine to experience Divine love, how can a mortal physical become one with the spiritual Divine? So Yoga gurus would act on behalf of the Divine to bless their female followers with sexual union. The result of this is more scandals about the sexual practices and the abuse of female disciples by internationally renowned yoga masters.
Many disgraceful incidences that happened in Europe and America are now known all over the world through the internet. Indeed, a free mind, inner peace and tranquility are common pursuits for the modern people. Modernity brings more and more temptations each generation. People are overwhelmed by increasingly sensational entertainment and rapid technological advance. Still, all this over-stimulation cannot fill up the void inside. It is only natural to turn to the pursuit of spiritual growth, development, meditation, etc. Unfortunately, people don’t realize that wanting oneness with the Divine or seeking the serene tranquility of Divine love is merely chasing after other kinds of mental phenomena. They do not and cannot lead to real freedom and true liberation.
