India a land of Mystics:
From Times in memorial India has been a land of Mystics, Sadhu’s, saints. And a place where the practice and performance of reverence and asceticism respectively is done. This Land has produced great God’s men like: Swami Vivekananda, his guru- Rama Krishna Parmahansa. They became Saints or God’s men only after a lot of hard work and thorough reading of scripture. And imbibing all the principles and rules that are necessary for God men to follow. They were considered saints and next to Gods because of their understanding of religion and making people come together as one. Hence not becoming above than religion or God but rather being self- confessed, servant of God.
Will India get over its obsession with Godmen?
India, will never get over its obsession with Godmen because, it becomes very easy to sway common man with religion and superstition. Inculcating a fear in the minds of people helps the God’s man to create a lucrative business out of the faith. God man is an informal and idiomatic word which is used for the Charismatic Guru or leader. This term has picked up rather recently in India. Initially they were the men who would be bridge between a common man and his God. He would be the messenger of God. Who would tell common man about the good and bad deeds done by them (common man). And would recommend them lot many remedies to get rid of their bad and evil that have afflicted the common man.
In due process of creating awareness about God and the religious teaching. These leaders at times become even more than God, in the eyes of common people, which in turn leads in creation of a cults. These cults then become the life style and part and parcel of the followers and devotees. As it becomes easy to sway normal people.
Godmen – A Threat to Indian society and culture
As the recent Modern day God men are really not God’s man. Because they are self-proclaimed God and forget that they are merely humans who might or slightly have the knowledge of scriptures. They can also perform occult activities or magic tricks or even at times have or pretend to have paranormal talks with Supreme being. In the ‘Name of God’ they say or do some things that make it easy for them to create and maintain faith of unsuspecting crowd.
Sometimes the ones who are absconding criminals or fugitive of law become God men to avoid any legal action. At the same time it is a lucrative career option for those who wants to earn an easy buck or for those who want to evade any and every sort of debt. Since these God men are becoming powerful, because they are able to toy with the emotions of a common man. This happens because people are willing to go to any extent to be in their patronage.
Modern day Godmen:
Recently trends shows that all the skeletons that were initially hiding in closet have now started to appear out in open. These God Men, have now become sexual predators. And have started to create fear psychosis in the mind of people. Women & Young Girls, with faith or even otherwise would confide in God men for getting rid of all their troubles. They have now been sexually molested and raped. Such is the return they get for their faith.
All the God men receive political support because they spend money on the funding of political parties. They also helps in patronizing and backing would rather lead to crime and criminal activities. And make it rather difficult to pin them down. This is perhaps the only job, in which one does not has to pay any tax. The so – called god men enjoy all the facilities, out of the common tax- payer’s money. But justice prevails every time, even when it is hiding under wraps, it unravels itself. Such is happening now many God men are behind the bars. They are serving their time for committing crimes which they were not suppose to do as God Men .

Salvation is Self Attainable:
We visit God men and various Babas’ Tantriks, for attaining Salvation. Salvation comes very close to Indian concept of Moksha- that is freedom from Cycle of rebirth. Salvation is self- attainable as it gives importance to spirituality, rather than religious Dogmas. Religion can become a path towards salvation but not the ultimate goal; it is attained by meditation and spirituality. Salvation in Hinduism is actually self- realization. Self- realization is actually a process to know that he she is actual the Atma, the immortal soul trapped in the ever perishable body.
Self- salvation is also Achievable by doing the Lord Vishnu, and Sarv yoni Puja. As both these are not just Puja and Homam but is rather a method to realize that there is no other truth than self and self truth is the only truth in the world.Why do people follow Godmen? by Vipin Saini
