West 'sLove With East Sprituality,Is It New?

So many westerners turning or coming fast for becoming monk or for getting peace via meditation.But is it new phenomenon or it happened earlier?
Ruby explore it:
We think of the West’s love affair with the spiritual East as a recent phenomenon. Not so. As early as 1812, the English explorer Thomas Manning crossed the Himalayas and reached the Tibetan capital of Lhasa. There, he was given an audience with the ninth Dalai Lama, who was just seven at that time. He wrote, “I could have wept through the sheer spirituality of this meeting.” He also embraced Buddhism.
Today, the world has shrunk. We live in a global village. This is a secular age, yet we still need something to believe in. We search, each one of us in a different way, through Mantras, Runes, Tai-chi, chanting, Vipasana meditation, Reiki, visiting fire temples, mosques, churches, doing yoga, Tibetan Humming, etc… All in search of WHAT??? Though we live in a secular age, our faith in organised religion is so diminished that in the West, the Anglican church is now suggesting abandoning Sunday as a day of worship – something unheard of till now.
Some people from certain religions blame their priests who are corrupt upto their eyeballs and sell the religion to the highest bidder in return for wealth and material comforts. And yet, the decline of conventional religion does not indicate a lack of desire for belief. Rather, religion has given way to spirituality… a search for something more satisfying, beyond rituals and paying others for prayers which you can do yourself.

How Long Sachin Should Play?

As long as he thinks fit because he knows better about his body and its limit and temprament.He is not kid.He has played long enough to handle such a pressure situations.Critising Sachin or lecturing on him that he should leave cricket is stupid.We can't compare him with Lara who is nearing 38 or other older players who are retiring or retired like Kumble and after world cup Macgrath both are near to 38.Sachin has just completed 33 years of age.He have at least 3 years of cricket remain in him.
What Other say"Neil Morge
Marketing Professional
No, he should not. Infact, he should retire. He has done what he had to, it's time we allow new blood to make way into the team.

Yashesh Sampat
Insurance Manager
If he personally believes he can perform well then he should try playing for the next six months. If he does not play well, it's better he leave.

Yasmin Elavia
Executive Secretary
He has been losing form off late and is growing old. Though he has created many records, he is not good at present. He can play Test matches but not ODIs, and make way for young players."

Play and friendly talk was going on between two jumping frogs.
First Frog:You know, I ate two snakes last night and I was so overpowering over them that I took only 3minutes to swallow both of them.They wanted to say something and both were pleading like child to leave them.
