We know now that is false, Lekhraj Kirpalani was only 52 in 1936 and 48 when he started Om Mandli, therefore in PBKism it is assumed that God Shiva must entered into someone else who was actually 60. This seems a reasonable suggestion to me. In fact, the theory I am working on just now is that the BKs' versions about Lekhraj Kirpalani are actually a mixture of the story of this individual's life and Lekhraj Kirpalani's life ... that is to say, many of the stories and attributes that the BKs give to Lekhraj Kirpalani, were actually stories and attributes of this other individual.
The BKs are trying to mend the truth to fit their false version. They now say God used the term "sathiyana" to mean "60-ish" and suggest that means the same as Vanaprastha (the retirement period).
A few questions arise ...
- What is the actual word, in Hindi, the BKs are translating as 60 years old or going 60-ish in the Murli?
Is it sathiyana or do they actually say 60?
What do you feel sathiyana actually means. Is it vague and does it mean what in the Western BKs are saying?
In truth, knowing what we know now, these could all be true of Lekhraj Kirpalani.
The dictionary says it is seldom used as a descriptive term in third-person terms and is used more commonly about specific old people, humorously or derisively, and marking them as being wilful or stubborn, such as referring to the irritable and often hot-brained behaviour of a known elder (younger people might call friends of the same age sathiya if they were acting like a stubborn old person).
It also connected to 'hot brained-ness', to struggles of authority within a household or public arena." "To go sixtyish" means getting angry, confused or obstinate.
What do native Hindi speakers thing about this?
