  9. Hello Dear Friends, Im writing this letter to ask for some help about how to get an acupuncture license in Europe (it can be also North of Africa). My Teacher is Korean Buddhist monk and a doctor of acupuncture with licenses from Korea, China and Mongolia. Now he lives in Mongolia but wants to move to Europe or North of Africa. With some good help we have discovered that it is difficult to get a license in France bcs he needs to study French about 3 years and then he needs to study as a doctor there at the university and pass exams and it will take more than 6 years total or even more. We would really love to get some help about any information where it is easier to get an acupuncture license in Europe or North Africa. We understand that Europe includes many countries, that's why you can share any information about any country and we will combine all of this knowledge from you and choose the best one. Thank you very much! Stay in peace.

    Nice to be back here!

    Namaskar all, It is nice to see the forum is back. It has been a vade-mecum of spirituality and Hinduism at large, at least for me, as I was so novice about these a few years ago. This forum has been a good platform to share views, discuss substantial things and meet people that had a lot of impact in my life. Still missing so much friends here... I still miss a close friend of mine here, Jndas Ji and so many more learned people...I wish to read more topics from you. Do keep in touch. Kshama

  14. Hi, I am new to this forum. I got registered in the site one day ago and since then whenever I try to post anything, it says it will not be visible until Administrator approves it. What is the procedure for getting approval of Administrator. Is it mandatory for every post or only for the first post? Please educate us on procedures and processes of this forum. Thanks & Regards, Krishna

  15. Namaste, ya'll... My given name is Reese though I now spell my name "Rij" of course pronounces much the same I have been away from my Sanatana Dharma for some twenty-five-plus-years, aba maiṁ vāpasa ā gayā hūṁ. As for quite the abbreviated "cliffnotes" version of a background: I started out as a harē kr̥ṣṇa in high school and, ironically, much much later after practicing Ashtanga and Vinyasa-style yoga for eight-and-half years, had not made any sort of connection with my Hindu past until recently after my former partner and best friend died of renal cell carcinoma. It's wonderful to be here and to have rediscovered this beautiful and rich tradition!

  18. I just joined this forum yesterday day/ I have few questions about What happens after death? I have finished reading the Great Bhavat Gita about a month ago. It is quite interesting to read the Gita and felt like everyone should read it and try to understand the teachings of Lord Krishna. Since I know Sanskrit from my childhood, I was able to read both Tamil and Sanskrit versions. I am now coming to my question to learned audiences. One (like me) did not practice the Gayatri Mantra though it was taught to me in my childhood, which I felt at my old age, can I get the Nama Japam from a Guruji and practice it sincerely be able to attain my wishes? Since I missed this great opportunity, I am willing to have a rebirth as very sacred soul like Adi Sankara or St Thiagaraja Swamigal and live like a Sanyasi or Siddha Purusha and learn the Vedas, Upanishads, puranas and slogas etc so that I become deserved soul to reach the Lotus Feet of Lord Krishna. Is this a possible wish come true.I need to seek the blessings of learned Guruji. It may look funny to some, but it is my true wish. Thanks for all those who read this post and responses and guidances.

    Namaste! Greetings all Beloves Sisters and Brothers of the Hindu Dharma path, I would like to state on the very beginning that I am very happy to be here and therefore I feel with all of my heart that it is the wonderful place to maintain the discussions conncerning our path and that Guru is in everyone and I would like to tell that it is by the nature that all of us are spiritual perceptors and I am not afraid to state that I am such being but I am not an egocentric and I am only purely working with myself without telling anyone who he / she shall do to fulfill on the path as well as I will not participate in the paid Hindu courses whcih I've found on the internet and thought that they are free but they are not. I am not throwing around the advanced expert names for the Gods, Worship and other aspects of working and I work with all of the aspects of the Hindu Dharma even sikhsism without being one but just exploring all of them in balance and without dividing as a true Mystic and what is mysticism is everything that leads toward the inner and outer cleansing and this process goes on eternally and is not going to be finished after a couple of some achievements. I am here not to spam but to share with all of you the experiences and discuss over all aspects of our path and everyday existence, I would like to send my sincere words of Loyalty and Love to the Adepts of the Hindu Dharma path as I will continue my progress naturally and without having any so called temples as this is not my aims, I am not a follower neither but I am loving the Hindu Faith truly and faithfully without making other traditions of Hindu Dharma less important and I work with all of them in balance, thank you for spending time and reading the message I left here with the best wishes for all of you on the path of Hindu Dharma. Om Namah Shivaaya.

  21. I have always been fascinated and intrigued by the drawings one finds on streets and pavements, even in homes . Some with graphic designs, geometric patterns, stars, flowers, triangles etc. They are done with chalk, paint, powder and whatever . They are commonly seen at high holidays like at Taipusam or Timithee. Is there a name for this "street art"? Are there particular designs used for particular reasons. Ive seen fresh flowers offered on top of the drawings. Is there a book I could read to learn more about this? Appreciate any information supplied .

  35. In the present age of Kali yuga mantra japa is the yuga dharma, or main process for self realization. It is simple, requires no background qualification, and can be done anywhere at any time. Sit down in a peaceful place and silently chant your mantra. In the beginning start for 10 minutes, and gradually increase. The mind will become fixed and peaceful usually after 30 minutes, and then the more fruitful sadhana will start. Other options for sadhana are puja (worshipping a deity of God), meditation (dhyanam), svadhyaya (self study of scriptures), etc.

    "itara parAmarzAt sa iti cet, na, asambhavAt" other one, that is jIva; due to reference; he = jIva; thus if not; because of possibility 82) If it b objected: reference to other as jIva in dahara passage exists, ergo, it means jIva; vaisnavas say no: for it's impossible epithets applied to dahara should =ly apply to jIva too. Chh Up 8.7.3 yields 8 epithets such as free from sin, free from decay... Can these apply to jIva jAgo jIvAtma? Indradev heard from Prajapati of a self free from sin, old-age... So these 8 r applicable to jIva too? VedavyAs goes deeper...

  43. these r actual evil spirits. they can posses a place or human body. they give a lot of diseases like extreme physical pain or heart ,body and mind problems if they posses u. they posses only those who hav low planetary position in horoscope charts because of weak aura of them. when they posess u, then u can c people talking rudely, insensitively when the actual people r not doing so.its a kind of illusion which shakini makes u c. If u want it to leave ur body,ask ur family to do hawan n puja on regular basis of a powerful deity.they can make u wander from place to place if they have more control over your mind then u. Doctors if asked why is this happening will say that the person is in depression or is mad.they make u remember bad things which happened with u or can possibly happen with u. If they can talk in your mind then apply gomutra on backside of your ears.drink gomutra ark.drink water plus kaali rai and pili sarso in quantity of at least 3-5.apply gomutra on foot and talwa.

    Substitute for Emulsifying Wax

    i do! My name is Rafael,I'm from Spain but I live in Mexico City,so please forgive my english writing ok? So,about your question,if you don't want to use the emulsifying wax you can use the next ingredients I have used at home before and they work realy so very nice plus as 100% natural ok? So,here we go: light lotion 7% beeswax 1.5% cetearyl alcohol(vegetable base you get it in the US at lotioncrafter or at this other place call ingredients to die for),1.5 estearic acid(also vegetable base from any of the 2 plases I just told you),and 20 to 25% of the oil fase! A nice tip! You most use a thickener like xanthan gum but, add it to the oil fase (not in to the watter fase as most people do, trust me on this, you will just love it, is much easier to mix) and the rest you should know is the watter fase ok? If you want a thicker lotion then you should use: 7% beeswax ,1.5% cetearyl alcohol vegetable base,1.5 estearic acid vegetable base and 30 to 35% of the oils and I forgot,in the last one and in this one about the xanthan gum you just need to add 0.2 to 0.3% of xanthan gum inside the oil fase ok? In this way your lotion will not separate! Now, if you want a much thicker product then we will call it a cream, you will need the same amount of ingredients I told you but in this case you will have to have a 40 to 45% of the oil fase and the rest any watter like rose watter or whatever watter you want ok? Don't use a lot of cetearyl alcohol or estearic acid in your lotions or cream beca use you will get a soapy effect like your cream is not getting absorb in your skin! So at the most you should use 2% of the ingredients I told you ok? No need to use borax when you use what I told you trust me,now, if you check the website of the 2 companies I told you (ingredients to die for and lotioncrafter) they have so so sooooooooo many good natural products aproved by ECOCERT plus these 2 companies tell you the whole list of the ingredients you aré getting from them! Rigth now I am using a nice natural and vegetable emulsifyer 100% natural and vegetable source aproved by ECOCERT and is call OLIVEM 1000 it comes from Italy and is coming from the olives, is for O/W emulsions where you use at the most 25% of oil fase and 75% of watter,altought Olivem 1000 is by itself a self-emulsifying product, you should add as I said 1 to 2% of cetearyl alcohol and estearic acid adding xanthan gum at the most 3% but in the oil fase, if you don't like the idea of using xanthan gum, I recomed the use of gum tragacanth, but in this case, tragacanth is much easier to use than xanthan gum, therefore this one gum tragacanth you can add it in to the watter fase with out any problem at al, it mix very will and very fast! If you have eny questions at all, my mail is: harigana@ hotmail.com Take care and I hope I could help you on this!

  45. When asking questions about your future please do not post your real name. These posts are indexed by google and they will show up when people search for your name. This may cause you trouble many years later when you apply for a job or for some other reason. It is better to be safe and not include your real name when asking questions related to your future, marriage, finanical problems, etc.

  46. Vasatu Tips For Money Fish aquariums are very positive for wealth. Choose some active and healthy fish and try to make sure that they are strong swimmers. Keep the water dirt free and aerated. The constant movement of fish will keep the energy of wealth on the move. If the entrance to your apartment lies at the end of a long corridor, the energy flowing towards it will be too fierce, increasing risk to your financial investments. Its effect can be diluted by keeping a plant halfway down the corridor. Make your front door distinctive to attract wealth within. Color it different from the neighboring walls. Keep the windows clean and sparkling, as dirty glass restricts the flow of money. Place decorative boulders or curved pathways or pebbles around your building. This will increase the movement of financial energy in a business that is suffering from setbacks. If your expenses are spiraling beyond control, keep live plants or grains in the toilet. It will prevent the money from going down the drain, because, symbolically, growing things reabsorb water energy and recycle it. Keep a mirror to reflect your cash box or locker. It, symbolically, doubles your wealth and opportunities. Keep a birdbath or feeder in the yard to attract wild life, as it augments the amount of energy around your home. Birdbaths and bird feeders can be of great help in cleaning up your finances and drawing prosperity from all directions. Regards: vastugyani

  47. Of course Ganesha first before any other worship. Otherwise worship of any deity will become useless. after ganesha you can worship any deity. Generally there is no order unless you are initiated to some serious Mantra Vidya - in which case you need to follow the order of that tradition. For example Srividya upasaka will have to first worship ganesha than Bala then the main deity Godess tripura sundari. It can be more elaborate than this simple schema worshipping a host of gods siva, vishnu, sun, Bhairava and so on in an elaborate system of Srichakara worship and there is a definite order. But if you are not a initiate to such system and are a niovice you can worship any deity in any order after Ganesha. Ganesha first is a rule. Magic Flute

    Kali maa question

    The way you see Kali is the true way my friend! She is a wonderful loving forgiving mother to us all. This is the way she actually is, and she will go through any length to defeat her enemies that harm her devotees. Her derived ferocious look is only to deter Evil and the human ego. The heart of the true devotee will see with the heart and not the eyes, and know that Kali Ma is beautiful and kind to all her children. One thing I think you should understand, however, is that Kali Ma pervades everything! Krishna, in the Mahabharata, worships this mother. The trinity Bramha, Vishnu, and even Shiva worships and falls before the feet of this mother. Kali Ma is the mother of all mothers. She pervades everything: from the entire macrocosm to the cellular level, even every tiny particle. She is within everything, as everything is within her. So, all the other froms of Gods derive from Herself! This is found if you read the book Devi Bhagavatam (which I highly reccomend). You do not necessairly need to worship the male devtas but you should at least respect them and acknowledge that they are part of mother, just like you and I and any living being is part of mother. The gods derive their power, their shakti, and their position from this same mother. Jai Kali Ma! Dasha Mahavidya Mantra (invoking the 10 forms of Kali Amma): Om Jayanti Mangala Kali Bhadra Kali Kapalini Durga Shama Shiva Dhatree Swaha Swadha Namasote
