B is for Bhagwan

Whilst in San Fran, in Berkeley, I noticed this fellow walking with his cool orange turban. Unfortunately, I only got his back as he crossed the street. The big kahuna of bhagwans apparently is Bhagwan Swaminarayan who was born on December 31, 1801 CE. I am fascinated by religion, particularly the way some of them attract members even with such crazy (to me, at least) principles. For instance, the Opus Dei and their mortification rituals. Yikes! And to any Opus Dei's out there whom I may have offended, I offer apologies and, well, band-aids.
