German Swami Gauribala Giri, the sadhu with a sense of humor!

Maa Gauri

Mother Parvati's child Gauribala Giri, born in an affluent German family and originally named Peter Schoenfeld, was a disciple of the Shaiva Master Yogaswami of Jaffna, Sri Lanka. He was known for his childlike laugh and his jokes. He often smoked a cigar and told everyone that it was his chemical weapon to keep unwanted people away.

Once a man asked the Swami, a initiate of Shakta Tantra, why there was so much evil in the world.

Swami asked the man his religion.

Christian, the man said.

Then Swami asked, "Who built this troublesome world?"

Well, God is said to have done so."

"What kind of work was His creation? Plenty of flaws, like what we do?"

The work of God is all-perfect," the man replied, good Christian that he was.

To which Swami retorted, "Then why do you see imperfection in this mysterious being God, in whom you believe?"
May Mata Gauri, the Great Mother, bless all her devotees with the desire for liberation!
