His Holiness Grand Delusions
Yes, it is now definitely confirmed, the self-proclaimed “His Holiness Sri Sri”, Ravi Shankar, suffers from a very rare and incurable mental illness, causing bouts of grand delusions in which he sees himself as NPP winner, with world leaders gathered at his feet.
Having tried year after year to win the NP prize unsuccessfully, in spite of throwing huge cash and resources at it to influence NP committee (see the 4-part post on this subject), he is now trying a new strategy to win the coveted prize. Yes, you guessed it, “Fake it until you make it”! Even though SriSri is often heard to give this advice to his followers, asking them to fake smiles or spiritual growth or happiness, it is the first time he is applying it to win NPP!
A recent circular issued by AOL to invite AOL members worldwide to a gathering in Berlin to glorify the megalomaniac leader, is accompanied by the following fake article, in which the pathological brain fever consuming the guru is laid bare for everyone to see. Click here to read.
Not only SriSri is assuming he will win 2011 NPP, but he is assuming 2.3 million people, including world leaders, spiritual leaders (including Pope), and famous musicians (including Madonna, Bono, sting) will gather at his feet, to sing his praises.
In a feat of delirium, exhibiting his unfulfilled desire to have a famous Western musician as his devotee (like famous Guru Mahesh Yogi with Beatles), he sees Madonna as his devotee, sweeping his stage for him!
This leaves us with no doubt that SriSri has reached an acute stage of his degenerative illness and is in urgent need of hospitalization before total collapse!

Turning Point for Humanity
The World Witnessed as the Planet De-stressed
Berlin, 3rd July 2011
The world rocked Berlin yesterday! An unprecedented, 2.3 million people came together in Berlin’s Olympia stadium, united behind one vision for one mission with one inspiration.
One World Family
Celebrating its 30th anniversary, the International Art of Living Foundation, the world’s fastest growing NGO, united the world to achieve one common objective – inner peace for world peace. Founded by this year’s Nobel Peace Prize winner, His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, the Art of Living’s central aim is to create a one world family. World leaders gathered to create a new policy for world peace through promoting human values. Madonna sings a new tune Lighting the world flame for peace, this sea of humanity, representing over 200 countries, included political leaders from all European countries, 1000 famous singers, 5000 dancers, 2000 religious and spiritual leaders (a bare footed 110 year old yogi). From academicians to adolescents, from teen agers to truck drivers, from politicians to priests – this gathering was indeed unique… Could you ever imagine that the pope from Rome would be found dancing next to a saint from India? Your journalist was moved to tears seeing Israelis, Palestinians and Germans singing together in the spirit of harmony and brotherhood. For once, Madonna was happy to share her stage with Shakira, Nena, Bono and Sting. But wait, this was just the beginning. She went ahead to hand her mike to the German Prime Minister to pick up a broom to clean the glass shells that cultural artists from Italy, Croatia and Bulgaria had spilt on the stage during a performance. All in the spirit of service to humanity. It really happened! Perhaps the Guinness Book had lots to think about yesterday… The largest number of parking tickets with smileys given out in one day, the largest number of people turning vegetarian, the largest number of famous singers singing together on one stage, the largest European gathering meditating for world peace, the lowest world stress levels recorded by the famous independent agency from Ireland.
A New Beginning
“Its not only appropriate, but also an honour that His Holiness chose Germany for this event, ” said Angela Merkel, Prime Minister of Germany. A graduate student from Oxford was heard saying “This made me higher than hash!” A poignant moment for this journalist when she heard an 85 year old grandma say with a tear in her eyes – “I now see hope for my grandchildren.” Perhaps this is really the turning point for humanity.
