Celebrity (star) wars…

April 9th, 2015 · 2 Comments

I have antagonized another Indian ‘guru’ and, mindful of Darth’s Vader’s comment ‘We must counterattack at once’, I have to denigrate Chopra as a worthless phony guru, a craven commercialized new age huckster, and even possible a twilight tantric sex maniac/guru. His net worth is $20 million dollars (sic!), and he is cavorting with Di Caprio for an island resort
I was trying to get a book on the Heart Sutra, last week, but couldn’t afford it. Reading about Chopra’s 20 million from peddling crap like the stuff we discussed yesterday., The whole thing is so disheartening that I can see the need to exit the new age movement and world.

I have learned the hard way that the new age movement can be unfair: here Chopra is making millions as a new age celebrity while many as in my case have progressively lost social status, money, any connection with movements (to make victimization invisible), subjected to endless mindfuck, black magic, ritual curses, and on and on. Sacrifice by the hidden shark gurus who run many figures like Chopra, and also control the Bollywood rackets. Why me? And how such grotesque spoils in a fake like Chopra? Hard to figure. For myself I must find a way to defend myself and stop getting ripped off every time I come to the attention of some new ‘guru’.

Be mindful of sharks in these waters…
But to be fair to Chopra he must be the disciple of some guru we are not seeing (and one he may not be aware of ) and plying the social message created or thru passed by Rajneesh: we have been poor long enough, the buddhist begging bowl is a tired cliche and preaches poverty, not its elimination…. The spiritual path can be put to the rich. Well, maybe. There was a point here. But the dumbed down version of Osho in Chopra is remarkably unsuccesful.

The problem is it won’t work: clearly as one ascends into tantric riches another descends into poverty and spiritual beggary. Osho’s message came with an almost unmentioned crypto-communist kicker which I find ironic and something the left might consider.

I should wary of whining complaints: the loser takes all, in the end.
So more bad things about Chopra, ugly, venal, spiritual capitalist, etc…

    I’m sure he is worth considerably more than $20 million.

    You are right. I think I read last year it was $20 million per year…
