How to be a guru/swami
    #11175147 - 10/03/09 03:51 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

1. First, your name has to go. Dave Williams is not very spiritual nor exotic. Try something foreign-sounding then add a 'ji' to the end to make yourself sound cute and accessable.

2. Suit and tie? No way. Wear all black? Hell no! Tight jeans and t-shirt? Sorry. A light colored flowing robe is mandatory.

3. Long hair is preferred, but baldness is acceptable. Just no $100 styled/feathered hair.

4. You must claim an awakening. Bonus points for telling everyone how screwed up you were beforehand.

5. Your message Part I: You must tell your disciples that they need no Master to come to enlightenment while getting them to rely on you.

6. Your message Part II: Convince your devotees that materialsim is a hindrance to Oneness. Free them by relieving them of such a terrible weight.

There is more, but this should get you started.

He showers us all with insight.  Isn't that enough?


--------------------
“Strengthened by contemplation and study,
I will not fear my passions like a coward.
My body I will give to pleasures,
to diversions that I’ve dreamed of,
to the most daring erotic desires,
to the lustful impulses of my blood, without
any fear at all, for whenever I will—
and I will have the will, strengthened
as I’ll be with contemplation and study—
at the crucial moments I’ll recover
my spirit as was before: ascetic.”

Once you complete all six steps and start a website to prove such, then I will give you the rest of this info on how to convince your ego (or at least your followers) into thinking you are the special, chosen one.

this is wrong, you would want a sanskrit name, usually gurus name people, but just pick one that you like, or that you think suits you.

Please point out the universal Guru certification that is recognized worldwide and has a solid history of picking real spiritual leaders.

I am not sure if I want to be a guru or a Christian priest/pastor/minister.  Which one creates better conditions for sex with dumb people?

very sarcastic.

nobody will believe you anyway if you don't have spiritual insights.
If you are a spiritual person you won't pretend being enlightened in order to rip people off.

Some who do inspite of that are just random assholes getting all the pain back which they caused!
