Purity and credibility, love and compassion

Welcome to the IOOI blog October 24th, 2006 This is the preliminary entry. The purpose of this blog is to share ideas on how Humanity can be ‘Self Powered’ as a civilization, and inculcate the technology as well as the social cohesiveness to ‘reach for the stars’. Let’s get ready to infuse our greater human civilization with a measure of ‘divinity’ - or add our contributions to an already existing divinity...
Respectfully, I will hold that the Karmayogi who is a Tyagi can be very effective at what they do, but they will not be able to take the place of the Sanyasi. Let us do a mental experiment. Which one of the following great seers stayed in their original station in life even after enlightenment (as opposed to moving into Sanyas)? Jesus, Sri Aurobindo, Mohammed or Buddha. Whose life’s circumstances somehow got irrevocably mixed in with the core message of love and compassion? Thus, with the station in life of the Sanyasi being situated so much above our day to day existence – they can garner an extent of purity and credibility the belies the rest of us.
