People want their gurus to be ego-friendly and
sugar-coated. Some are, some aren't. MMY likes to kick
our punk-ass-bitch attachments. Oh boo-hoo-hoo. MMY

Kind of funny, I remember M telling us on my TTC in Majorca that There were times when Guru Dev used to "beat him on the head" when he did something wrong. We took it that he meant chewed him out as opposed to physically beat him. That gave many the impression that Guru Dev must have had a temper or he gave the appearance of having a temper to use for motivating those that needed that stimulus.
