Sceptic challenges guru to kill him live on TV - Times Online

Saw this and thought it of interest. You may too?
Do you believe that we can harness the power of the universe, focus on that power with our minds & with that take another's life?
I actually do believe that this IS possible but do not agree with any universally enhanced power being used for negative actions.
In my opinion those of us who choose to follow the path of a guru, mystic etc. should harness the cosmic power & shape that towards the positive goal of complete internal & external light.
To call the gentleman concerned a holy man is a contradiction in terms. Enough already read on......

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 Edamaruku’s response was different. “Go on then — kill me,” he said.

Mr Edamaruku had been invited to the same talk show as head of the Indian Rationalists’ Association — the country’s self-appointed sceptic-in-chief. At first the holy man, Pandit Surender Sharma, was reluctant, but eventually he agreed to perform a series of rituals designed to kill Mr Edamaruku live on television. Millions tuned in as the channel cancelled scheduled programming to continue broadcasting the showdown, which can still be viewed on YouTube ( see below).

First, the master chanted mantras, then he sprinkled water on his intended victim. He brandished a knife, ruffled the sceptic’s hair and pressed his temples. But after several hours of similar antics, Mr Edamaruku was still very much alive — smiling for the cameras and taunting the furious holy man.

“He was over, finished, completely destroyed!” Mr Edamaruku chuckles triumphantly as he concludes the tale in the Rationalist Centre, his second-floor office in the town of Noida, just outside Delhi.
