Couple of Orangis Online related Ashram Visits

Running Orangis Online requires me to visit reputed organisations. So i decided to meet the person in the administration of Ramakrishna Math which was founded by Swamy Vivekananda. The person who claim to be a Sannyasin managing the Matham is very arrogant. He was pouncing upon me as if i was an enemy. He was not at all ready to hear my proposal.

This Monday i visited another Ashram, a growing one headed by a Sanyasin in his youth. It is believed to be an offshoot of Sivagiri Ashram, Varkala founded by Sree Naryana Guru.Sree Narayan Viswa Dharma Math is headed by Swami Shivabodhananda.Contrast to my experience at Ramakrishna Mission, this person is so warm and cordial.He showed me the ashram, temple, conference room under construction and the home theatre due to inauguration.

The home theatre room is superb.I asked him ,"What is the use of a movie theatre in an ashram, after all vidhi (direction from scriptures & shastras) for brahmacharis and sanyasis is to avoid wordly pleasure?".

He said it would be used to show movies to young boys, videos of spiritual discourses and for running powerpoint presentations for learning.

Today i found a newspiece on the inauguration of the said home theatre.
