I note that the President-For-Life of Turkmanistan, Sapamurat Nyazov has proclaimed that anyone who reads his two volume collection of philosophical and religious writings three times gets a free pass into heaven.
"Anyone who reads the Rukhnama three times will find spiritual wealth, will become more intelligent, will recognize the divine being and will go straight to heaven."
Apparently, while working on the text which is compulsory reading for all schoolchildren and government officials in Turkmanistan, he called upon Allah for assurance that this promise could be met.
I apologize to readers of this web site for my inability to provide similar guarantees no matter how many times they read it.
