I spent 10 years learning qigong and tai chi with a Master, he created a little village in his back yard, it has a name in Chinese, I asked him what it meant, he said, "Sandra it means spontaneous, natural" I understood at that moment the correlation between the Sahajaya that Hinduism uses and the system the Toaist use. I understand the concept of verifying from within. Yes we read books decifer terms and philosophies but ultimately we have to experience it ourselves. The Guru or the Master shows us the way but ulitimately is it us who has to walk through the door.
This is also the same with the path of Baul it is an inner thing, their sadhanas are inner. Inner is alway more feminine, for instance qigong, and tai chi are an inner martial art, Karate is outer, soft feminine is inner, hard is outer. They worship Radha first, they puja Radha's feet first then Krishna.. some puja Kali and then Shiva.. so what? To call Kali, Ganesha, Durga, Saraswati, or any other Deity a demi god is a gross misconception and something only the spiritually immature would do this, it actually is used in a derogitory way and is nasty to others who are Bhakti Yogi's, it destroys othere peoples faith, this is a common thing a new age Vaishnava will say. Vaishnava Baul is polytheistic not monotheistic although if you want to be monotheistic that is your choice and all the power to you.
To use names like Sahajiya to insult others is spiritually immature and only is used to make themselves superior to perhaps collect devotees or money for temples, this shows a real lack of respect for all living beings and a lack of understanding. One will never ever understand the feminine this way it is impossible, and perhaps this is a real shame for them. Vaishnava's never do this, they have mercy on all, it is about love, not about fighting or insulting. If we point one finger there are always 3 fingers pointing back at us. Look within.
