This is awesome in so many ways that I don’t know where to begin.
When a famous tantric guru boasted on television that he could kill another man using only his mystical powers, most viewers either gasped in awe or merely nodded unquestioningly. Sanal Edamarukuâ€™s response was different. â€œGo on then â€” kill me,â€ he said.
When the guruâ€™s initial efforts failed, he accused Mr Edamaruku of praying to gods to protect him. â€œNo, Iâ€™m an atheist,â€ came the response. The holy man then said he needed to conduct a ritual that could only be done at night, outdoors, and after he had slept with a woman, drunk alcohol and rubbed himself in ash.
