    Prayer Power or Will Power...

    Swami bathes in boiling ghee:

    Chennai: Watched by hundreds of his followers, a frail swami on Monday bathed in boiling ghee at the Ekambareswarar temple in the Kancheepuram, about 70 km from here, pledging his ‘divine’ effort to securing world peace and communal harmony.
    Swami Rajan even used a red-hot coal as the soap after dousing himself from head to toe in steaming ghee.As his devotees chanted “Siva, Siva, Siva” the swami in his early 40s and hailing from the pilgrim centre of Tirunallar in Thanjavur district down south, boiled 25 kg of butter in a large brass vessel on a brick chula fired by wood.

    He then said some prayers and began pouring the melted butter, now steaming, with a mug-shaped brass urn to douse himself from head to toe. He also picked up a red-hot coal from the chula as his soap.

    The devotees gasped in disbelief as there were no burn injuries on the swami. There was not even a blister, said eyewitnesses.Later, the swami told his followers that it was the eighth time that he was bathing in steaming ghee.

    It was necessary for man to undergo pain and make sacrifice to achieve anything and so, he had undertaken the demonstration of ghee-bathing to secure communal harmony and world peace.

    He would hold similar demonstrations in other places in Tamil Nadu in the coming days, the swami said.

    a totally organic experience?
    The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he did not exist. And like that... he is gone.
