i was thinking out loud whether any future believer of Her
Message will require any cleansing rituals for salvation.
The more i
pondered the more i am convinced that absolutely no external
are needed for salvation.
But the least needed and lowest denominator for salvation
the official sacred cow of Sahaja Yoga.
Yesterday i asked my wife Shindi, as she baked walnut-carrot
why SYs need cleansing rituals. She replied that these rites
required to keep clearing themselves, just like taking
baths daily in order to constantly clean oneself.
So when will they become cleansed enough? Never, because
forever getting dirtied by catches.
Then what is the purpose of all this ceaseless clearing? (i
her answer) - so that they can become real yogis.

i also cannot resist quoting the Bhagavad-Gita:
