Today we will expose Akharas of Hindu Ascetics & how they have been infiltrated by RSS & VHP .

How they have lost asceticism & now fight for power & wealth & indulge in Politics .

We will tell you how the titles of Shankaracharya & Mahamandaleshwar are being distributed

1/n
So let us Start with Sukhvinder Kaur aka #RadheMaa.

Title of #Mahamandaleshwar was granted to Sukhvinder Kaur in 2013 .

She paid a hefty amount for title.

But Sadhus of Juna Akhara (most influential amongst Dasanami Akhara) protested.

So the Title was withdrawn

2/n
Who is a #Mahamandaleshwar ?

It is a coveted Title that Akharas bestow on Sadhus .

It makes Sadhus Preacher -leaders.

The title comes with a hefty Price tag and has become a constant source of Income & Trouble for Akharas.

3/n
As per Dhirendra K Jha for most part of their existence , Akharas did not have Mahamandaleshwars.

It is only in 1980s did Mahamandaleshwars began to proliferate , as Peddlers of New-Age spirituality .

Titles can be bought .

#RadheMaa & #Nithyananda both bought the title

4/n
After Sex scandal the title was withdrawn from #Nithyanand

He does imbecilic programs with Rajiv Malhotra Hon. Prof JNU.

He tried hard to get title from Mahanirvani & Niranjani Akhara

And finally got the title from Mahanirvani after hefty sum



5/n
We continue on how "Akharas of Hindus" have been infiltrated by VHP , RSS etc and are being used for Political Mobilization.

This how Sadhus of Akharas look like .

We will in due course tell you about of #Akharas

You must have heard of Nirmohi Akhara w.r.t #AyodhyaCase

6/n
#Akharas were originally conceived as the Militant Wing of Hindu Monasticism .

Akharas or wrestling pits fell into disuse after rise of fire-arms in 1980s.

In the past, akharas were centre of Warrior Ascetics and had proximity with princely rulers .

7/n
But now, as nodal organisations of various Monastic orders of Hinduism , the #Akharas are the Main organisers of #KhumbMela.

Monastic orders belong to Vaishnava or Shaiva traditions

Sadhus of these traditions / orders are often celibate monks, and act as spiritual leaders

8/n
Swami is an ascetic or yogi who has been initiated into a monastic order

But greed of money/power/politics has affected many swamys

They have betrayed trust & some are accused of sexual exploitation

One such so called Swami is Chinmayanand.



9/n
Swamis/ Yogis have become a Bane

They spread superstition & indulge in Politics & have become MPs, CM & Ministers

Communal Hindutva Politics provides them platform

They indulge in Sexual exploitation of Bhakts. Here is proof of #Chinmayanand



10/n
Chinmayanand has Swami title

Silence of Dharm Sansad , Akharas on #Chinmayanand
shows their hypocrisy .

It also indicates how far removed they are now from the ideals of Asceticism.

Not one Swami, Yogi or Mahamandaleshwar has sought action.



11/n
Do you know there are how many Shankaracharyas in India ?

Before we go into that , do read the following article .

BJP, RSS Caused Biggest Damage To Hinduism: Shankaracharya Swaroopananda Saraswati outlookindia.com/website/story/…

12/n
Listen to this Sadhu

He says he got certificate from Hanumangarhi,Akhara Parishad

Sadhus/Babas are greedy & there is nothing Ascetic about them

Sadhus are Casteist.
2 types based on their caste Sutadhari & Maladhari

Such Babas/Sadhus also endorse Netas during elections
13/n
Swamis/Yogi are Ascetics , linked to Akharas.

But most of them are openly indulging in Politics , power .

Real Ascetics have nothing to do with Politics, Power & Wealth . They hv renounced the world .

Now take a look at pictures of #Chinmayanand #YogiAdityanath #RamDev 👇
14/n
Here is a picture of #Chinmayanand with @DrMohanBhagwat @myogiadityanath @yogrishiramdev

Now tell us will they allow action to be taken against #Chinmayanand ?

All the talk by @RSSorg on security of women , justice to all is a Lie .

They are Two-Faced & Diabolical

15/n
There must be so many like #Chinmayanand.

The Nexus between Swamis/ Babas/ Yogis and Politics has to be broken . @RSSorg must Desist.

And @SpokespersonECI should debar them as it is misuse of religion

#Chinmayanand , accused of rape, arrested



16/n
Reference 15/n above

#Chinmayanand has powerful friends so 👇

Politician has been charged not with rape but milder "misusing authority for sexual intercourse" or "sexual intercourse not amounting to the offence of rape", acc to his lawyer

Shame!
