If you thought only the religions of Abraham harbored sexual predators, think again. Hindu holy man, Swami G, was found guilty of child molestation on Friday. Swami G is the spiritual leader of Barsana Dham, just outside of Austin, TX.
According to an article in The Statesman, one of the women, Rose, said he began molesting her at age 12. When she and the other victim confided in an adult, they were told the touching had a higher purpose. "I was told it was a test and if I failed it I would go to hell," Rose said. The other women said they were told the guru was gracing them.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but in Hinduism, the concept of Karma would instruct that these molestations were earned from past life behavior. Yes?
