I take it you mean the Dadis "pushing the sanyasi issue" from a metaphorical/PBK interpretation?John wrote:I disagree and think it's the Dadis, Didis pushing the sanyasi issue. What is wrong with getting married, really? In a marriage you can have love without attachment, live in celibacy ... where is the sin? Really let's get our heads out of the clouds with this ... are all BKs seriously going to live alone or in BK centres?
I'd like to turn this point of view on its head and ask, do they really think that just because individual BKs are sitting in lonely bedsits, desperately not having sex, and waiting to be dumped in a municipal care home; that they are some how being therefore yogi and enlightened? Personally, I will stick my neck out and say there are a whole load of old Kunyas sitting there doing nothing but not having sex. That the quality of their lives and the level of their Brahmin-ness, if there is such a quality, may not be at all stunning.
- • You can be unmarried for the whole of your live and still be filled to the brim with lust and attachment.
• You can be a pukka BK sister on the outside and attached the Hell to some Senior Sister more than a husband is to their wife.
• Where do homosexual BKs, or ex-homosexual BKs if they have been "purified" of their sexual orientation, fit in the picture? Why do they get to nest with others of the same sex in same sex bhavans, where temptation is at hand all the time, when ex-heterosexuals do not?
Then for the West; I do not know what is happening worldwide ... are there any couples that stuck their necks and went for it? That BK that overdosed in Australia was refered to as the center in charge's "partner" in one news report but it was not clearly clarified what that meant. Is Australia more contemporary in this area? I'd like to see this discussed more, to know the truth.
