Sekarji (Chandrasekhar Balasubramanian)
seems to be a Sai Baba lookalike in that he sometimes wears an orange
robe similar to those worn by Sathya Sai, but there are important
reasons why he is not so, not least of which is that he considers
Sathya Sai a molestor and a faker of miracles. He looks like a Sathya
Sai Baba imitator in that he takes on a guru role. He claims to
teach in the tradition of Ramana Maharshi. He does have a big following,
apparently, but does not lord it, live in luxurious surroundings
etc. So Sekarji is somewhat the "odd man out" in this
gallery. It is interesting to include him, however, since he had
told a very interesting thing about Sathya Sai Baba in a web posting:-
From Sekharji 06-28-2002 08:43 PM ET (US)
Today, there are so many Extortionists, that SSB is letting
most of them go on telling stories without the reward for
silence. It seems that the money supply is now getting low.
So now, there are a whole lot of exDevotees attacking each
Other to achieve the status as being the last One standing
for SSB to deal with. There are even Imposters planted to
help confuse and frighten the whistleblowers.
I enforce My claim for the previous statements to You in the
following way. There is a Swamiji named 'Kaleshwara' somewhere
near Banglore. He was a young Boy when SSB molested Him. He,
however, brought a camera and took pictures of the activites
without SSB knowing. Later, He extorted SSB and got $1 million
dollars to start His own ashram. Go to Him in Banglore, and
privately ask. He is quite open and honest about the whole
matter. He may still even show You the pictures as He did
to many Others.
Here are some more of Sekharji's statements:-
have no ambitions in seeking worship, devotion, or support.
I have no interests in a following nor in any Kingdom. A
dothi, a stick, one meal a day, some water, and some warmth
is all that the body needs. Even these are superficial.
So, why are so many Devotee's, and many more to come?
Time has come for the Universal Awakening to begin. Each
and every individual must awaken to the understanding that
every thought, word and action contributed to the evolution
of humankind, the restoration of the basic nature of Humanity,
and the divination towards the Realization of 'the Self'.
about whether there are miracles, Sekharji says:-
"The very word means 'supernatural.' How can anything
be beyond, above, or superior to Nature? In fact, it is
nothing but ego, imagination, delusion, and illusion to
are all these other Swamis and Yogis who claim to be Masters
of Miracles. I have never experienced any miracles from
them. But, are You saying that they, and You, are not performing
any miracles at all?"
replied: "There is absolutely nothing They do, or claim
to do, that You cannot just as easily do. For Me, it is
quite the opposite. As I always say, where is the proof?
I, a Jnani, stands before You, and that is enough of a miracle.
For Them, illusions and deceptions are required. Their foolishness
of worshipping the body and its advertisements are made
into a mockery by My clever display of True thaumaturgic
powers. Let the Untruths pave the way for the Truth to shine
the confusion and recognize that everything will take care
of itSelf, just discover who You really are. Take advantage
of Your good fortune. Is there anything else more important?"
