Move away move away, don’t come on the way, stand behind” – shouted someone while pushing all the women gathered near the departure gate at the domestic airport.

Suddenly a huge gathering of men cordoned off the place forming a semi circular ring, blocking the women out.

A huge Mercedes Benz stopped near the gate , out came a Sadhu/Swamiji with his team amidst loud cheers of Jai Ho, Swamiji ki Jai ho .He was followed by a another Sadhu carrying the idols of Radha Krishna in his arms. Both these Sadhus/Swami were enveloped by the group of men who had already blocked the women from all sides.

The group of women stood behind with folded hands also joined in cheering and the sadhu.

The group moved ahead. All the women walking far far behind the men still chanting the same

When asked the reason for this seclusion from the men group,I was surprised to hear that the Swamji doesn’t look at women, no women is allowed within his vision area, He doesn’t talk to women etc.

Also during his sessions of preaching, women are made to sit at the back, away from every one.

Some points to ponder:

  1. Are women untouchables?
  2. Why this aversion to women? Did he not come out of womb of a woman?
  3. Does the swamiji walks with his eyes shut? How can he not see women?
  4. If he thinks women are source of distraction does that mean he doesn’t have control over his desires?
  5. Will allowing women during his sermon sessions corrupt the minds of all his male followers?
  6. Is he and his followers so weak that they will get enticed by the mere sight of a women?
  7. Does he think women are not fit/intelligent enough to hear and understand his golden words
  8. How come he prays to the idols of Radha Krishna? Radha was a woman
  9. While praying to Krishna or Vishnu will he be ignoring Radha, Rukmani or Laxmi
  10. Will all his male disciples be also keeping away from women?
  11. If looking/talking to women is against his principles then why does he allow women to become his disciples?

This reminded me of a news item that appeared in news papers few days back

(trustees of the Radharaman Swaminaryan temple in Junagadh (Vadtal sect) now want to keep the sadhus on the straight and narrow.

The new code of conduct announced on Monday bars contact and conversation with women,


If he is such a learned person, if he has renounced the world, if he is the ideal of so many people, if has attained so much fame that proves that he has won over all his desires then why this discrimination against women

    haahhaa… thats a hilarious one… not able to control his desires and therefore doesnt want to see them…
    or may be thats a show-off act… to show how he has no interest in such distractions…

    May be the “36-24-36” stats of most Indian women may be the sole reason of distraction to his karmic journey, hence the agenda of keeping aloof from women.

    Don’t they say, prevention is better than cure?

      wish all those men who cannot control their libido should follow the philosphy of this particular swami. not to look at woman only

    when he travels by air, there are instructions to have only flight pursers serving in his cabin (zone he is seated in) and no air hostesses!

    hahaha… A cheat that he is, he will suffer for his hideous deeds…

    Let him first erase the fact that he was born of a woman and that too when that woman and a man had a sexual union! Can he do that?? Bah! The dramas these people enact. But then they are getting away with it because there are people to follow them!!! They are the fools.
    It angered me to know that women were not allowed beyond a point in Swaminarayan temple. I vowed never to visit one.

    Hehe.. These self proclaimed Saudhus feign decency and such. They’re the ones who are involved in sex rackets and all such crimes that we hear on the news channels.
    Heard of AasaRam ? No offense to anyone’s belief in him. But I personally hate these men who earn millions by wearing a dhoti, sporting a grey beard and sermonising.

    more than him, i hate the women deciples.

      “In Swaminarayan temples, men and women practice strict gender segregation and conduct their own separate and parallel programs in temple life. The saints and the Guru of the tradition are male only, and practice a strict form of celibacy that does not allow them to touch, speak to, or look at women. Therefore, women do not have the same access to religious specialists as do men” This I got from one of the sites on the net.

      Arunima I hated all those ladies who were forced to stay behind, were asked not to come in the front and all of them meekly walked behind with folded hands. and mind you all of them seemed educated and beloning to well to do families

    can not control feeling, may touch someone somewhere
    he who can not control his feelings
    i am thinking when he sees Goddess Radha what he thinks.

    he sounds much of a hypocrite.

  13. January 21, 2010 11:01 am

    any thing to gain attention

    and look his has been successful by get featured here in your blog. Right?

    Don’t even get me started. I remember particularly of a case of a hanuman temple in which women were not allowed to touch the idol as lord hanuman had taken the vow of celibacy. oh the hypocrisy of our people.

    You see these people weren’t conceived out a sexual union as shail di says, people actually planted seeds wihch were created form an hitherto unkown to us biotechnology and the seeds sprouted in to these so called human beings.. we’re all inferior that our parents had to copulate, they just grew out of asexual reproduction.

    Shouldn’t we also now see to it that men don’t go around looking or touching the idols of the goddesses lest they too may harbour some feelings.

    I agree to all the questions put for swamiji…hope he visits the blog and enlighten us … ;))

  16. January 22, 2010 6:30 am

    I really dont understand the only make me have less faith in such people . I believe they do it for extra publicity.

  17. January 22, 2010 11:58 pm

    does the sadhu know that a woman gave birth to him ? And breast fed him too ?

  18. February 6, 2010 6:12 pm

    I feel he sounds extremely weak willed. Why this fear of seeing women?
