Gurus of our time



By Life Positive

March 2001

In the last century, several Indian spiritual gurus and godmen amassed unprecedented followings in India as well as globally. The gurus of our times, quite a few of them now non-Indian, have also been unveiling hitherto secret doctrines and practices. Charismatic, great orators, motivators and organization builders, they are the glamour boys of contemporary spirituality. In Indian spiritual gurus many a restless soul find, an anchor, their queries dissolved and a path to self-discovery and salvation

Applied Jainism – Acharya Tulsi

Some years ago, when work in Parliament came to a standstill following a boycott by opposition parties protesting against the ‘whitewash’ of an official report on the securities scam, Acharya Tulsi, the most high-profile Jain guru of them all, was asked to mediate.

I met the Acharya in Ladnun. He looked remarkably fit and alert for his 83 years. A Sanskrit and Prakrit scholar, he spoke in chaste Hindi.

What inspired a religious head like him to launch the popular Anuvrat movement, aimed at social reform and moral regeneration? ”Human suffering,” he replied.

Since ordinary people find the five big vows (nonviolence, non-stealing, celibacy, non-acquisition and speaking the truth, common to Hinduism , Buddhism and Jainism ) too intimidating, he developed a ‘minimum moral code’. This contained vows such as: I will do my best to avoid contributing to pollution; I will observe rectitude in business and general behavior; and I will not resort to unethical
