Your enlightened Holiness,

It is a long time since we had any news from you and your Dhyan Foundation. I have been also very busy going around the hot and dusty parts of North India braving the scorching heat as I feel that it is very important to cultivate scientific temper among my own people first. Since I have been accused by you of not knowing how to address a YOGI and was advised to consult my parents or some other elders, I have done so. Of course I have contacted my parents through a séance as my mother passed away in 1995 and my father in 2006! To atone for my past sins of addressing an enlightened soul  like you as an ordinary human being I have decided to address you in the future as H.H.Sri Sri Aswiniji Maharaj. I hope that you will be kind enough to pardon me for the sins I have committed by calling you as Ashwini. But, perhaps if you could let me have your real name, it would be better. You might have perhaps forgotten it during your sojourn in the Himalayas doing tapasya!

Any way, you have been on tour in Europe enlightening the mlechas about the greatness of our vedic culture. Hope you have done so effectively and we shall soon have droves of them renounce their petty religions and convert whole sale to Hinduism if there be no problems from Vishwa Christian Parishath or some other eponymous body out there to protect the members of their faith from being “converted” by blandishment or force! As you know we have own organizations to protect innocent, gullible Hindus being converted to these religions!

Coming to the point, you had promised us that any one from your foundation could, by looking at photographs of ten people tell who is dead and who is alive. It was also claimed that their disease could be diagnosed. Last time this was to happen on 31st May, the members of your foundation who came claimed they were only kindergarten students and they could not do that. Of course there were other complaints like the venue being dusty etc. Unlike your Dhyan foundation which being a charitable organization out to make contributions to the welfare of the poor and down trodden, we are just a group of people looking for the truth and we cannot afford the air conditioned comforts such service organizations to serve the poor need!

Now since you must have returned from the cool climates of Europe to the hot dusty land of rishis, you may be in a position to enlighten us about the power of yoga. So, may we request your benign good self, your exalted holiness to kindly appoint a member of your foundation to kindly look up ten photographs and tell us about the people in them? Of course we are not expecting a great yogi like you to come forward to do this mundane task. But, in case you want to do it your self, you are welcome. We shall be glad to have this test at Mangalore or Bangalore. If this preliminary test goes through then we will have another one in which we shall have more photos with medical histories in detail. If you can do that with 90% accuracy as you have claimed I shall be glad to join your foundation as your servant. If you are wrong are you willing for the same, that is join us as a full timer? The offer to educate can be only on a reciprocal basis. We are always willing to educate people on scientific temper, even members of the Dhyan Foundation.

I have the ten photographs ready your holiness. Will you be kind enough take up this task of educating us as you are “willing to educate anywhere and any time” dusty premises or not! You can please enlighten us “on culture and truth of yoga”. Please forgive me for quoting verbatim from your past emails in case you have forgotten what was in them.

With prostrations at your lotus feet

I remain your most humble seeker of the truth,

Narendra Nayak
