A good guru like Swami Vivekananda can show you the right path to salvation. But If the guru is a fraud, you've had it.

These type of 'gurus' are actually con men and are helped by others and they all share the loot. The crowd you see around them are the simple folk of India who are easily trapped and pulled and then tied like dumb animals. It is a pity that our leaders and other prominent people also make a beeline to their ashrams and thus give them quite favourable publicity.
Rarely in a lifetime or two comes a genuine Guru, like Swami Vivekanand. But these frauds spread their nets in the names of such genuine people and our people fall into their jaal like birds into the net of a chirrimaar!!

If I can learn something from any source, I will grab it. Asaram, Ravi Shanker or even, Dinesh Manaktala.

I do not know much about Ravishankarji and Asaram Babu . Who knows they might be good . I respect Matha Amrithanandamayi and Sathya Sai . Because I know how hard it is to survive with a swamiji title by non-Brahmins in the midst of Brahmin Acharyas surrounded by caste radicals doing all sorts of mischiefs to down faith non-Brahmin Gurus , successfully of-course with their vast experience with Panchatantra tricks .

No, I do not believe in them or any other so called Godman.They are all making a fast buck by taking advantage of the public's sentiments.
