Pujya Pramukh Swami of the Swaminarayan sect is revered the world over as the highest representative of the Hindu faith. at 92, he still moves around and blesses his folowers. Swaminarayan sect is today undoubtedly the greatest reformist and futuristic flow of Hinduism. On 6th january 2013, the youth wing of Swaminarayan BAPS celebrated its 60th anniversar. I had the honour of being invited for this great event and the global head of the Swaminarayan, Pujya Pramukh Swami, inspite of indisposition, came out , holding my book in his pious hands and blessing it. earlier Pujya Doctor swami and Mahant swami had blessed the book and i had that rarest of rare opportunity to speak to thousands of devotees who had gathered on that occasion. here are some pictures of that day.

World's greatest Hindu Saint, wow!! Measured in terms of the devotees contributions, perhaps?

I just saw this comment on another blog and it rang so true:

My bone with the RSS is that they are anti-intellectual and promote blind obedience up the ranks rather than intellectual and/or administrative ability. It is representative of their inability to move forward that they stuck with their khaki shorts and semi-fascist salutes when any other modern organization would have long moved away from these outdated symbols. This is why Sita Ram Goel and Ram Swarup, the last of the towering Hindu intellects of their generation were kept at arms length by the RSS leadership.
