Now that this Jagdeo issue is finally coming alive, I ask myself just how damaging is it to the Hamster. Look at it first, from the perspective of a premie (i.e. cult apologist). Wouldn't it be tempting to try to somehow trade-off all the 'good' Rawat's done against this possible ... what could we call it? Oversight? A little negligence? Hell, maybe a short lapse in judgement. Maybe he really was just trying to love his dear Jagdeo a little too much (thanks Shp). I mean, how bad is all this anyway?
Well, here's where Rawat's got a problem. He put himself so goddamned high up there, what with being Lord of the Universe and everything, you know, Master of Perfection, Saviour of Mankind ... blah, blah, blah ... 'and if I am a father and I see my child crawling towards that fire, and I am REALLY a father ...blah ,blah, blah...' well, I'd say he's got a problem.
Maharaji's so much like Humpty Dumpty, don't you think? Big, fat poobah with thin, thin skin. And we all know what happened to Humpty. You know, Maharaji is NOT like Jimmy Swaggart et al. He's got no room to 'fall' and then redeem himself and then use the whole story as just one more reason for why everyone should support his ministry. Maharaji is/was the Lord. Can't fall. Too bad.
