Chapter 16 and following appear to touch on issues that may have given excuse or reason for the Russian lawsuit we have been discussing, to the extent they touch on the structure of ...[text shortened]... of) of the sannyasi, "who is on the top of the institution" to women. Pardon my imprecision.
I reckon that "truth" as is contained in alternative sources to the "holy bible"(like the Gita), is an easy target in countries such as russia, where christianity is the predominant religion.
The "holy bible" has been so corrupted and put out of all context that it suits the "powers that be" to maintain the status quo and keep the masses subdued with it's misinformation/disinformation. So it suits the governments just fine.
The truth is ultimately very simple, but seemingly very hard to practice.
My take on making any "advances" with spirituality is that we must get rid of dualities (such as hard and easy). The buddha told us to take the "middle path".
Timeless words that cut through time and all sorts os other crap that hinder the genuine spirituality seeker.
So I say it is not hard nor easy but "tricky" . It is a trick.
I did not look up your site, as I have no credit for it at the moment, but I hope some others look it up and give their opinions on this rather interesting topic.
The powers that be, governments and and oil barrons that run the world are just fine with keeping people confused while they rake in the cash.
Capitalism will fall-as did Rome. There is a better way but unfortunately psychology is still in it's infancy AMONGST THE GENRAL POPULACE and psychology is the key to unlocking the doors of wisdom to the human "soul" and unleash the potential of the human race.
I for one am sick of christians on this site arguing, accusing each other of being the tool of the devil,etc.
Sometimes "Love" can be boring. Patience is a virtue, and all that, but boredom is so much better than the what a lot of other millions of people have . Little kids walking 20 miles to get water everyday-things like that.
We need to unite , we need to make 2012 the year of unity. The only ones that will suffer are the ones at the top. The 1%. I say "Lets get 'em" . Not through violence but through "starvation". Let's starve them of their riches. Let the economy fall. Who cares? Lets unleash this potential once and for all and "Eat the rich" 😀
Happy new year
