WHY SREE NARAYANA GURU IS NOT KNOWN TO THE WORLD? thanx @lalu natarajan sir 4 posting this article.

Why people are joining Islam and staying there ? Because Islam allows everything for the males by even treating the females as subordinates. The philosophy ? Everything is created by all merciful god to be consumed by males. So no fear or guilt required. Just consume everything and thank God. Simple !
Similarly Christianity started by some wise guys with the discovery that sex is a sin. Now who will join that religion ? So the church made loop holes. "Even if one sins, Jesus can absolve them " Bingo ! Then people will join, do the sin and pay penalty to get over. And then what ?
Sin again, what else to do ? LOL !
These are just empty philosophies to justify human weaknesses. None will get enlightenment or self control or knowledge or even live in higher levels of human existence with such liberal policies to capture the maximum number of people.
Sree Narayana Guru does not give such liberties. Because he really knew any other path other than reaching salvation will be a waste leading to another death birth cycle. So very few will follow him. Because Guru represents how one can totally discard life and still become happy and knowledgeable. People fear such Gurus. They want to live easily and enjoy life than discard life and get enlightenment. People are clever and practical. Who will go after someone who did not do any miracles. Or allowed whatever they wanted ? At least the basic minimum fun ?
In an Osho story, one goes to heaven and sees billions of people in procession after Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha etc. Smaller crowds after less popular Masters. Finally someone goes all alone. With no followers. Inquires who he is.
The answer is "I am God !"
The God has no followers ! The one who claimed he is God's son has maximum followers ! The one who claimed he is a messenger from God has the second largest number of followers. The one who realised God has the third largest number !
Only the real original God is all alone with no followers. Because God does not encourage followers.
The opportunist people thronging after spiritually useless religions and priests will simply make noise and die out in bulk. None is going to get enlightened or acquire real knowledge about their won identity and existence.
Guru at least has a few followers. God has none ! Lonely and bored trying to catch at least one followers ?
he number of followers mean nothing. There are a million insects per each human being. Does that make them any special ? Most are going to simply live and dies. Punarapi Jananam...Only a handful really try for the true knowledge and get it. Does that make God any less popular or lesser known or weaker? It is us who benefit knowing our real timeless divinity. Not the other way round.
Already many Christians are following Hinduism. Not the idol worship and casteism but Vedas and Upanishads, meditation, Pranayam, yoga. Osho's 3000 plus disciples (he called them a communion of potential Oshos) were mostly highly educated Caucasian Christians. Normal people go by the society and relatives. They can't do anything else, simply because their bandages and inter dependence are very strong.
There may be many who mentally accept Guru but follow other religions. Even if none follows Guru, does he become sad or less enlightened ? He has reached the true identity and merged with that. It is for us to decide whether to emulate the true Gurus who will lead us to higher levels of freedom self dependence and enlightenment or take the easy way out with other religions and easier Gurus who allow the basic human needs and greeds.
It all depends on what the individual wants. How strong is his attraction
to the outer gross world or towards the inner subtle world.
