In times today people are living into full of temporary information overriden constantly, without much time devoted to learning about self.

Is there any way one can devote himself to a SADGURU without deviation caused by the Maya of selfishness ~to how personalities like SWAMI VIVEKANANDA did, while also completing worldly duties.

There's only selfishness, marketing and business attitudes seen everywhere.

Even in school children there's some sort of digital habits ingrained which seems to destroy their natural way of thinking, which makes them think spirituality is just for old/time pass/passive and helpless peoples of society.

Cause: They aren't given a spiritual shelter unlike past, which can let them Know the fact that this material world is just a reflection, so has no meaning without the spiritual side of life- just like a bulb has no meaning without electricity.

    The reason spirituality is refuted in this Kali yuga is due to the absence of proof. For example there are gurus who claim to live without food or water who refuse to let them be examined by scholars. The natural way of thinking is not destroyed rather improved. We must remain critical thinkers. More hindus are subscribing the fact that the stories in the scriptures are mythology rather than actual history.

    It is for people a lot easier to become a disciple if there is hard proof yet the gurus never met their burden of proof.

    @Saurabh The problem starts when you listen to some critics or see this so called society way of life who does nothing but demotivates others. When you do something just be focused on that, what others think doesn't matter. There is nothing in this world if one wants to achieve and finds no difficulties in that. There will always be difficulty, one should be ready to face it.

    @ram "All our rishis and acharyas have been, and will always be, willing to subject their claims to critical examination and hard proof. " Well that is good yet proof was never given. So explain that. Also, I do not back out in courage I just note the absence of proof while you back out and refuse to give the proof yourself.

    Thats the point, every person is Spiritual and Dharmic in Satyuga and Gurukula, but one who will stick to Dharma and spirituality even in Kaliyuga like a lotus floating in dirt, indeed will stand out and soon be liberated. Hence simple bhakti done in Kaliyuga bear deep fruits rather than penance and cramming spiritual books without mind-purification first. Accepting God, Brahmloka, Pitrloka, presence of soul etc., without any proof is mere parrot cramming and an insult to human's intellect/reasoning, hence modern equipments have been developed to enhance rational thinking among today's masses.
