Below is an email message I received today that asks four good questions of Gurinder Singh, the current guru of Radha Soami Satsang Beas (RSSB) -- an India-based spiritual organization that I was a member of for many years.
Some background info: (1) In RSSB, the next guru is appointed by the preceding guru via a will; (2) Gurinder Singh is the nephew of the preceding guru, Charan Singh, who appointed him; (3) "Satpurush" means the Supreme Being; (4) the Punjab is a province in northwest India; (5) RSSB and other Sant Mat movements believe that God/Satpurush incarnates as a guru so souls can be guided back to the Supreme Being.
As noted in the message, it is indeed strange that supposedly one particular area on Earth, northwest India, is the place where God centers his redemption attention. (Of course, Christians, Jews, and Muslims consider that the "Holy Land" is that place.)
It's high time for the bullshit of Sant Mat to be exposed. There are some strong supporters of Sant Mat who still come to your site to straighten out us defectors.
For those people I have these 4 questions that not even Gurinder Singh can answer with a straight face.
Some pertinent questions for Gurinder Singh aka BabaJi:
1. Please explain how such a large and important cosmological role of God in human form (or Sant Satguru) can be transferred through a will executed by lawyers here on Earth?
2. Isn't it suspicious that Satpurush continues to choose to come into human form through one family line? In this case the Grewal family?
3. As of current, there are at least over 20 sant mat paths with their own teachers, all have followers, and all claim to be legitimate (which is not possible since many of them are claiming successor ship from the same master). Does the reason for this rest in the methods (which are actually different) or in the gullibility of the followers?
4. What does Satpurush have with the Punjab? Why does he keep on showing up as a Sant Satguru there? I would think someone as great Cosmologically as Satpurush would not be limited to an area? Or is there a simpler explanation: Punjab is fertile and gullible ground for the bullshit story of Sat Purush and Sant Mat to grow.
If you find that this might be fun to post up on your blog, please feel free to do so.
