If there is a crib, it is the cult status that his followers confer on him. Besides the "almanities" and "non-almanities" nomenclature as though a passageway to heaven and "Happy morning" and the unabashed self-congratulatory speeches from the podium (this is very much a talking obsessed group) are irritants that lowers the credibility. TT Rangarajan is still worth a listen or two, gets tediously repetitive after that. Watching his Masterminds on random Sundays is some entertainment; so soapy and maudlin where fathers will cry to encourage their sons or some such drivel.
Of late, it is painful to see a man who talks so much sense seek such absurd levels of grandeur and promotion. T T Ranganathan is now the "voice of Ra"; "alma mater" is now "infinitheism". My initial impression of the "Complete Adulthood" has a bit frayed; gloss and shean a lot tempered. Consumerism and oversell, the bane of our age. Delusions of grandeur has claimed another victim.
But there is no doubting the oratory prowess of TTR. He has his crowd and I have my Swami Paramarthananda weekend lectures and daily dose of Vipassana.I have one advice for any spiritual/self-improvement seeker: Never follow a guru who is heavy on self-promotions. Let him make a career but don't be an impediment to his path on the progress by signing as a follower!
