    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

    Divine art/ street paintings.

    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 .

    VedAnta-sUtra 1.3.1-43

    "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...

    Vivekananda's Speech

    Here are some excerpts from Vivekananda's Speech at the Parliament of religions, held at Chicago in 1893. I am proud to belong to a religion which has taught the world both tolerance and universal acceptance. We believe not only in universal toleration, but we accept all religions as true. I am proud to belong to a nation which has sheltered the persecuted and the refugees of all religions and all nations of the earth. I am proud to tell you that we have gathered in our bosom the purest remnant of the Israelites, who came to Southern India and took refuge with us in the very year in which their holy temple was shattered to pieces by Roman tyranny. I am proud to belong to the religion which has sheltered and is still fostering the remnant of the grand Zoroastrian nation. I will quote to you, brethren, a few lines from a hymn which I remember to have repeated from my earliest boyhood, which is every day repeated by millions of human beings: "As the different streams having their sources in different paths which men take through different tendencies, various though they appear, crooked or straight, all lead to Thee." The present convention, which is one of the most august assemblies ever held, is in itself a vindication, a declaration to the world of the wonderful doctrine preached in the Gita: "Whosoever comes to Me, through whatsoever form, I reach him; all men are struggling through paths which in the end lead to me." The seed is put in the ground, and earth and air and water are placed around it. Does the seed become the earth, or the air, or the water? No. It becomes a plant. It develops after the law of its own growth, assimilates the air, the earth, and the water, converts them into plant substance, and grows into a plant. Similar is the case with religion. The Christian is not to become a Hindu or a Buddhist, nor a Hindu or a Buddhist to become a Christian. But each must assimilate the spirit of the others and yet preserve his individuality and grow according to his own law of growth. Cheers

    Classic recording of Achyutananda Das singing "Jaya Madhava Madana Murari" bhajan in MP3 format. The correct name of the bhajan is "Sundara Kundala Naina Visala". http://www.indiadivine.org/content/files/download/168-jaya-keshava-kali-mala.mp3 Vasudev Ghosh has written this song “jaya madhava madana murari radhe-syama syama-syama”. In this song, Vasudev Ghosh glorifies the transcendental pastimes of Sri Krsna, which charms everyone. (refrain) jaya madhava madana murari radhe-syama syama-syama jaya kesava kali-mala-hari radhe-syama syama-syama (1) sundara kundala naina visala, gale sohe vaijayanti-mala ya chavi ki balihari radhe-syama syama-syama (2) kabahun luta luta dadhi khayo, kabahun madhu-vana rasa racayo nacata vipina-vihari radhe-syama syama-syama (3) gvala-bala sanga dhenu carai, vana-vana brahmata phire yadu-rai kandhe kamara kari radhe-syama syama-syama (4) cura cura nava-nita jo khayo, vraja-vanitana pai nama dharayo makhana-cora murari radhe-syama syama-syama (5) eka-dina mana indra ko maryo, nakha upara govardhana dharyo nama padayo giridhari radhe-syama syama-syama (6) duryodhana ko bhoga na khayo, rukho saga vidura ghara khayo aise prema pujari radhe-syama syama-syama (7) karuna kara draupadi pukari, pata men lipata gaye vanavari nirakha rahe nara nari radhe-syama syama-syama (8) bhakta-bhakta saba tumane tare, bina bhakti hama thade dvare lijo khabara hamari radhe-syama syama-syama (9) arjuna ke ratha hankana hare, gita ke upadesa tumhare cakra-sudarsana-dhari radhe-syama syama-syama (Refrain) Glories to the husband of the goddess of fortune, who is the transcendental Cupid and the enemy of the demon Mura. Glories to the divine couple Radhe Syama, also known as Syama Syama! Glories to Lord Kesava, who has fine hair, who removes the miseries of the age of Kali—Radhe Syama Syama Syama! (1) O Krsna, You wear beautiful earrings, and You have lovely widened eyes. Around Your neck hangs the splendrous vaijanti flower garland. Your complexion is most excellent—Radhe Syama Syama Syama! (2) Sometimes You secretly plunder yogurt and eat it, and sometimes You design a rasa-dance performance with the young gopis in the forest of Madhuvana. There dances Vipina-Vihari, You who love to sport in the forest— Radhe Syama Syama Syama! (3) You herd the cows in the company of the cowherd boys. You, the monarch of the Yadu dynasty, thus wander from forest to forest, carrying a black blanket draped over Your shoulder— Radhe Syama Syama Syama! (4) Because You, O Murari, repeatedly steal fresh butter from the homes of the women of Vraja and secretly eat it, they have named You ‘Makhan-Chor’ (the butter thief)— Radhe Syama Syama Syama! (5) One day You curbed the pride of Indra by lifting the great mountain Govardhana upon the tip of Your fingernail, thus winning for Yourself the name Giridhari— Radhe Syama Syama Syama! (6) You did not accept the sumptuous feast of the wicked Duryodhana, but took the coarse food offered by Your devotee Vidura. Therefore You are worshipped by love and not by mere rituals—Radhe Radhe Syama Syama Syama! (7) To bestow mercy upon Draupadi, You, the Lord of the forest, supplied unlimited cloth to protect her from shame, while the assembly of men and women looked on— Radhe Syama Syama Syama! (8) You deliver each of Your devotees in unique ways. Alas, we who are bereft of devotion are standing here outside Your door. Please favorably receive the news of our presence— Radhe Syama Syama Syama! (9) You were the driver of Arjuna’s chariot, and on the battlefield You gave Arjuna the instructions of the Bhagavad-Gita. During the fight You exhibited Your form as the wielder of the discus Sudarsana— Radhe Syama Syama Syama!

    Anger while chanting maha-mantra

    Well it is the most powerful healing mantra and likely to be bringing somethings up to consciousness for cleansing and purification. Just try not to associate the bad feeling of anger with the Mahamantra. Mahamantra is only the medicine making indigestible pains in the mind and heart come to the surface. You won't be able to progress or heal unless some things come to surface where they can be dealt with and digested as learning experience. Everyone has to come to peace within themselves and with the God first if they would experience bliss. What is bound must find release. What is grieved must find it's joy. Anger is often a reaction to something wounded, either pride or the very heart and soul of a being. In any event, our true nature is joyous praise and not these limited reactions and temporary experiences or identity. Don't stop chanting, but keep chanting. Chanting isn't the cause. Chanting is the cure. Haribol.

    whats the point

    I think the point of life, in general, is simply to follow our nature. As we do this it inevitably leads us onwards. It is when we deny our nature that we feel life is 'pointless', for truly it is. Experiencing unhappiness and happiness are just part of that path of following our nature. A seedling seeks the air and then the sun. If it is unable to find what it seeks, it is not only 'unhappy', it will die. Truly we are 'happiest' when we are Being and fulfilling who and what we really are. Our spirit, likewise, must find what it seeks, must follow it's nature, or it too will never grow.

    Hello to all of you, First I'm very sorry that I didn't reply earlier becoz I forgot the link of this forum. But from now on all of you can reply at this email address or at the forum. First there are thousands of vashikaran mantra's which is really working. Second you have to believe in it otherwise you will not succeed Third you have to sit and meditate where the Sun rises. Fourth you have to meditate on a red blanket (kambal) Fifth use a Rudrach mala for the Djapa All of you can use the Gayatri mantra and put this beech mantra on it. Aum bhur bhuva swah "Aum shreem hreem kleem" tat sah wi tur we rinyam bhargo devasya dhi mahi dhi yo yona prachodayat. You have to take a red or pink candle and and take oil and balsem the candle from the middle to above after that from the middle to beneath. After that kerve your wish into the candle with a paper clip for example You still have to love me ( name of your parnter) for ever after that you have to light the red or pink candle before you and start chanting the gayatri mantra do this for 3 weeks burning every day a candle on the name of your partner. You have to start at a full moon( purnima) or new moon (amawasya) you can place also a photo of your partner before you and concentrate on her/him This is tested one, I know many of this mantra's and solutions but you have to believe on it. When you meditate on your partner focus between her eye for example that a blue light is going from your for head chakra into her/his fore head chakra and that the blue light is taking control of him/her and the light is surrounding him/her and brings him/her to you. Do this and you will succeed with the name of the great mother Gayatri. If you not could do this I will tell all of you a another method with a egg and 2 red or flower plants. But let me know if you can do this or not. Greetings Master Yoda

    It's hard to tell what fits to you. But, the bast way to activate mooladhara chakra is, that you first activate ajna chakra (names for ajna chakra are also: 7th chakra, guru chakra, third eye, command center, gyana chakshu, triveni, wisdom eye and Shivas eye). Ayna and mooladhara chakra are somehow connected, that meens, that when you activating ajna chakra, mooladhara chakra is activating too. Why it is good that you first activate ajna chakra? Because you will understand what is happening in you. Very good techniqu is trataka and jala neti kriya. Sure there are others, but these are tehchniqus that are very strong and resoults can be achived and seen very quickly! And, when ajna is activated, your progres will be much qickly with other chakras! Ajna is center where intuition and wisdom are developed. Concentration become much higher and so on.
