Todays comment by achrayaji of swaraka is most uncalled for amd gurus r supoosed guide the hindus inparti ular a.d unicersae on the whole. I have no knowledge that my guruji has done anything to save the poor hindus of bharat from these psudo sikkularists.hardcore muslims.and politicians like mulayam.nitish.laloo.khangiress.may.Naveen.the most dangeeous communists. He shoukd realise the hi.dus r beingexplored andfast becoming minorities and at ine time my guru will have non to adress and he has to resort to fast to achieve samadi. ADI SANKARA LIVED.ENLIGHTEND AND KEAD HIndus.where as u r indulging petty politics are u representing congiress or communists to destroy hindus.
I am extremely sorry to vent my anger like this,but no choice as zomebody has to criticise u . Let mr.modi do his job.bless him to becom prime minister with 2/3rd majority and if u fell u have no devise strength like adi sankara.better keep quite and spend ur rest of ur life in the devine glory.
The hindus needs most help to rebuild bharat if u can contribute do it by way of popularising mr.modi so that he becomes promeminister of i.dia and save india.me and u.
Look at the decency level been kept by kanci and sarda oeeth and be like them
i am writing this with lot of heavy heart as for the last 55 years we r being subjugated.

I entirely agree with Lalitha Gopalakrishnan. Dwaraka Swamiji's comments are uncalled for especially now.He acts like a state priest.
