I don't know that he's really as "popular" to the masses as say,
'Friends" or 'Madonna" or the 'Beatles,' or that his spiritual appeal is
to all that many people, compared to the membership of the major world
religions, but I agree with you, that the path of spiritual self
sufficiency is more desirable, at a certain level of maturity, than a
blind devotional dependance on someone or something else to always hold
the balance for your own attainment.

At some point, you should be able stand on the mystic reality of your
own identic nature.
