Beautiful Jaina girls are invited to become nuns. It is thought, it is preached, it has been propagated for hundreds of years that to become a nun is to become holy: you bring prestige and blessings to your family too. So when they see a beautiful girl, they invite the family: “The girl has such spiritual powers that she needs to be initiated as a nun.” The family is happy, the community is happy, the girl is happy that she has been chosen as a spiritual being of tremendous possibilities. But the reality is totally different. She has been chosen because she is beautiful, young, and the monks are sitting there hungry.
I made this statement, and not a single Indian newspaper had the courage to print it!

So this whole population explosion, which is going to kill half of humanity through utter starvation, who is responsible for it? Genesis – and these stupid bishops and popes, and cardinals and priests.
You will be surprised to know that when Ronald Reagan came to power, he immediately cut the budget for controlling the poor countries’ population, because he was a fundamentalist, fascist Christian. Since he has been in power, he has fulfilled the statement of Genesis: “Be fruitful and multiply.”
When India became independent, it had only four hundred million people. Now it has nine hundred million people, and by the end of this century it will be one billion human beings. After forty years it will double: there will be two billion people in India. From where are you going to get food?
One of the ex-members of the cult had come to me directly when he left the cult. He wanted to write the book, but I said, “Wait a little. Nobody will listen to you. You just create some status for yourself and then write the book. The book is absolutely essential” – because he himself was the victim of Acharya Tulsi’s sexuality, not to say of other monks.
