Self-styled Indian ‘godman’ Kumar Swami, by resorting to one more gimmick has belittled and tried to undermine the sanctity and supremacy of none other than the Living Guru of Sikhs Shri Guru Granth Sahib and other sacred books of different religions. He has claimed that he has a three minute mantra which is multi-crore times more effective than the spiritual effect of Shri Guru Granth Sahib, Geeta, Quran-e-pak, Dhammapada, Bible and Jinvaani. Yes Punjab has gone through the content of advertisements inserted in some popular vernacular newspapers and seeing the seriousness of the issue we have decided to pre-pone the launching of this Website and confront the Baba as he has committed blasphemy which cannot be overlooked. We didn’t know that Yes Punjab will have to open its account with an Editorial on an issue like this but we take it as a responsibility entrusted to us by our Living Guru, Shri Guru Granth Sahib ji.
Yes Punjab Editorial
H S Bawa
He claims to have cure for all the ailments. He claims to be a ‘one stop shop’ for all the solutions of all the sorrows under the sun. He promises to bless you with health, wealth and success. He claims to be the sole-selling ‘godman’ of the GOD Himself. He claims to have political bigwigs and other saintly and worldly personalities as his followers. He flies and travels like a corporate biggie and issues advertisements which become a source of envy not only for other babas and saints but also some of the noted corporate houses. Only he knows the exact amount of his advertisement blitzkrieg and the only confusion for people like us is that whether it is in millions or it is in billions. Yes, you have got it right. He is what they call, ‘Mahamandleshwar Param Pujya Brahmrishi Shree Kumar Swami ji’.
Full page insertions in national and regional newspapers have become his identity now. He knows how to sell and is simply master of his technique of selling ‘godly’ blessings at a price. His full page Ads in newspapers claim that Senators of America have acknowledged his ‘powers’. His advertisements carry pictures and messages of some of India’s much known spiritual and political personalities. It is not known whether he has taken permission for this from these personalities or he does not simply need anybody’s permission.
The spiritual leaders applauding Kumar Swami’s ‘works’ and ‘powers’ include a) Jagatguru Shankracharya Swami Sadanand Sarswati ji Maharaj, Shri Shardapeethadhishwar, Dwaraka, b) Jagatguru Shankracharya Swami Narendranand Sarswati ji Maharaj, c) Nivartman Shankracharya Shri Satyamitranand Giri ji Maharaj, d) Mahant Shri Gyan Dass, President, Rashtriya Akhara Parishad and Mahamandleshwar Swami Pranavanand ji.(...contd.)
