Well, Gurinder Singh Dhillon and I have something in common: we both enjoy looking at naked women.
But the difference between us is that Gurinder Singh is the Radha Soami Satsang Beas guru, so supposedly is "God in human form," and I'm just ordinary me.
Here's an email message I received from a woman who found Gurinder Singh's behavior at "satsang" (a spiritual meeting) in India to be appalling. Again, it isn't unusual to hear men talk in this fashion.
However, one expects something different from a guru who is purported to have elevated his consciousness to an enlightened level.
In 2013 I visited Dera for the first time and made four more visits following that. My last visit was December 2017. Not sure if you have heard reports from other Satsangis regarding the 'Christmas' session last year, but it was appalling.
Gurinder’s comments and behavior during evening Satsang with the westerners went from somewhat off color to completely inappropriate. He bragged about flying around in his new helicopter and having his own private jet that allows him to avoid waiting in lines (among other luxuries). He asked us, "who wants to wait in lines?".
The worst part of the session began when his constant teasing and joking started revolving around bathroom jokes, nudity and how he couldn’t stop himself from looking at all the pretty girls.
He said, "Wayne, (Overseas Satsang Sevadar — not sure exact title), is always admonishing me not to make these sort of comments because of the reputation many of the babas in India have, but I just can’t help myself." He said beauty is to be admired. He even joked at one point that he was looking forward to his next trip to Ibiza and that he couldn’t wait to see the naked women on the beach.
He said it as a joke but it was still nauseating.
One evening in particular Wayne became very upset with Baba Ji when he made another bathroom joke about flushing the toilet and actually used the word "sh*t". He covered his mouth after he said it as if it were a slip of the tongue. Half the audience laughed and half looked shocked. Wayne looked furious.
I used to believe Gurinder Singh was a satguru and I felt great affection for him but after having spent several sessions in his company, my faith has been challenged by cold hard facts. There are so many more stories to tell... not enough time in this one email but it truly is a sham.
I hope in time light is shed on the true dealings of the current guru at RSSB. I have tremendous respect and regard for Charan Singh though.
However, there are a few things about Charan Singh’s will of successorship that seem odd to me. Like why does it keep saying he was 74 years old when, even by Indian calculations, he was 73 years old when he died. And the will was signed May 30th... then he died June 1st. Baba Ji said that Charan Singh chose to take a minor illness (I’m paraphrasing) as an opportunity to "go home". That whole sentence raises a lot of questions.
All I can say is I really hope that someday soon Gurinder’s financial and moral decisions are brought to light.
