    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

    A little Intro & Test Message

    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!

    Jeevan Mukthi

    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.

    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 .

    Simple Sadhna

    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.

    16 Reasons Why People Avoid Dairy Products

    16 Reasons to Stop Ingesting Cow's Milk by Bernie Thimian and One Step Closer [Previously posted to SoFlaVegans] 16 Reasons Why People Avoid Dairy Products. Most North Americans, including some vegetarians, still consume large amounts of dairy products. Here are sixteen reasons why it is a good idea to consider eliminating dairy products. 1. Human beings have no nutritional requirements for the processed milk from the udder of a cow. The nutrients found in milk are readily available from a wide variety of plant foods, including whole grains, fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts and seeds. As a matter of fact, until refrigeration came along, the vast majority of humans and animals on the planet consumed little or no milk products. Most Asians (more then 1 billion), most Africans (almost a billion), and many other cultures around the world still consume no dairy products. These people do not suffer from acute cow's milk deficiency disease, and have much lower rate of osteoporosis then the countries that consume dairy products. 2. Dairy products are high in fat and like all animal fats very high in saturated fats. Cow's milk straight from the udder is 55% fat. Unfortunately for consumers processed cow's milk found on the store shelf is purposely mislabeled to give the impression that it is low fat. 2% milk is actually 35% fat. Cheeses are very high fat. Those labeled between 7% and 37% fat are actually 35% to 77% fat. Butter is nearly 100% pure fat. For more on dairy fat, see The Great White Lie(s): Why and how the dairy industry purposely mislabels the fat found in it's products. Though skim milk products (skim milk, yogurt and cottage cheese) are considerably lower in fat, they retain the problems noted below. Also, if they skim the fat off one product it ultimately ends up in other food products. 3. Cow's milk, like all animal products, also contains cholesterol. This cholesterol, which is designed specifically by a cow for a cow, (unlike your own cholesterol, which is designed by you for you) contributes to cardiovascular disease and gallstones (whose principle component is cholesterol, hence the often used medical term " cholesterol gallstones " ). Studies comparing the cardiovascular status of lacto-ovo vegetarians (consume egg and dairy) and vegans (consume no animal source foods) have proven that while both are healthier than meat eaters, vegans have better cardiovascular status than vegetarians who consume dairy products. 4. Iron deficiency is more likely on a dairy rich diet. Cow's milk products are very low in iron, thus, if they become a major part of one's diet, iron deficiency is more likely. In addition, clinical studies have shown that infants consuming cow's milk lose small amounts of blood from their digestive tracts. For this reason, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that infants below one year of age not be given whole cow's milk. " We now think that iron deficiency at that age can lead to brain damage " - Dr. Lewis Barnes, University of Wisconsin Pediatrician. If you consumed only dairy products, you would have to drink 50 cups of milk to reach your RDA's for iron. If you have any doubts about this, check the nutrition label on the side of a cereal box. You will see that the iron status of the cereal increases by 1% or less, with the addition of 1/2 cup of cow's milk. 5. Insulin dependent diabetes (Type I or childhood onset) is linked to dairy products. Epidemiological studies of various countries show a strong correlation between the use of dairy products and the incidence of insulin dependent diabetes. Researchers in 1992 found that a specific dairy protein sparks an auto immune reaction which is believed to be what destroys the insulin producing cells of the pancreas. Even the dairy industry has acknowledged in their own literature that this does occur, but only in about 3% of those who may be susceptible. Every adult who does decide to feed cow's milk to a child must ask themselves; should I really put my child at risk? 6. Ovarian cancer is linked to dairy products. The milk sugar lactose is broken down in the body into another sugar, galactose. In turn, galactose is further broken down by enzymes. According to a study by Daniel Cramer, M.D., and his colleagues at Harvard, when dairy product consumption exceeds the enzymes' capacity to break down galactose, there is a build-up of galactose in the blood which may affect a woman's ovaries. Some women have particularly low levels of these enzymes, and when they consume dairy products on a regular basis, their risk can triple that of other women. Please note; the problem is the milk sugar not the fat, thus nonfat dairy products cannot solve this problem. In fact, yogurt and cottage cheese seem to be of most concern because the bacteria used in their manufacture increases the production of galactose from lactose. 7. Cataracts are also linked to dairy products. The galactose that is a breakdown product of lactose appears to be capable of damaging the lens of the eye, leading to cataracts. There are other factors which also contribute to cataracts, such as ultraviolet light and vitamin deficiencies. 8. Many people, particularly Asians and Africans, are unable to digest the milk sugar lactose. this can result in diarrhea and gas. On the other hand, they may be the lucky ones. Many Caucasians can tolerate lactose, only to be unable to rapidly breakdown the galactose which circulates in their blood, possibly contributing to cataracts and ovarian cancer, as noted above. Lactose intolerance may be nature's early warning system. Lactose digesting pills such as Lactaid, may help breakdown the sugar, however they do not solve the underlying cause which is a signal by your body that this food product is not acceptable in your system. 9. Milk is one of the most common causes of food allergies. The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology reports that cow's milk is the most common food allergy amongst children. Respiratory problems, canker sores, skin conditions, post nasal drip, and other subtle and not so subtle allergies can be caused by dairy products. The sad thing is that many people never know that their problems are caused by dairy sensitivity. Taking a break from dairy products can often lead to surprising improvements. Asthmatics, in particular, should give themselves a long vacation from dairy products to see whether their condition improves. 10. Like other products from animals, mammary secretions contain frequent contaminants, from pesticides to drugs. About a third of all milk products are contaminated with antibiotic traces. The dairy industry slogan " something for every body " takes on a different meaning, doesn't it? 11. Dairy products, despite common myths, do not stop osteoporosis. Evidence shows that the rate of bone loss is largely unaffected by dairy products. Numerous studies have shown that the countries with the highest intake of dairy products also have the highest incidence of osteoporosis, and that consuming large amounts of dairy products simply will not maintain bone density. 12. One out of every five babies suffers from colic. Pediatricians learned long ago that cow's milk was often the reason. We now know that breast feeding mothers can have colicky babies if the mothers are consuming cow's milk. The cow's antibodies can pass through the mother's blood stream into her breast milk and to the baby. 13. Cow's milk is not a natural source of Vitamin A and D. These two are fortified into the milk. In many provinces, states and countries it must be added by law. Often the amount is not well regulated and these two fat soluble vitamins are in excess and can contribute to toxicity, as well as calcium loss and osteoporosis. Your best source of vitamin A is consuming products high in beta-carotene, which the body uses to produce vitamin A. Once enough vitamin A is produced , your body stops producing it. Vitamin D is actually not even a vitamin but a hormone. Your body produces vitamin D when the skin is exposed to sunlight. It is estimated that an average of 15 minutes of sunlight per day on the hands and face is enough for your body to produce the necessary amount of vitamin D. Please note; it is the vitamin A and D that is produced by your own body that is necessary for your own vital functions, not that of another animal or from a genetically engineered substitute. 14. Dairy products, like all other animal products, do not contain any fiber. The more dairy products that one consumes, the less fiber rich foods are eaten. Fiber has been shown to reduce your risk of a variety of diseases including heart disease, stroke, and cancer. 15. Mad cow's disease is still a real possibility in North America, even for those consuming dairy products. Contrary to popular belief, the risk of mad cow's disease is alive and well in Canada and the U.S. We are doing exactly what the British farmers did to spread the disease into the fidyl food chain. We still take downer cows (beef and dairy cows that have suddenly died for no apparent cause) grind them up and add them to cattle feed. This cattle feed is then fed to food animals including dairy cows. In Great Britain dairy cows were found to be one of the carriers of the disease. 16. Dairy products linked to childhood leukemia. It is estimated that 20 % of the American dairy cattle are infected with the leukemia virus. The highest rates of leukemia are found in the children who consume the most dairy products. The leukemia virus is resistant to pasteurization and has been found in retail dairy products.

    Is Swami Raghavendra fake?

    Of course you are. Just out of curiosity, how can you follow a religion that tells you that your parents are damned to hell eternally for being born as Iyers? Isn't that a rather cruel god to sentence someone to Hell for all eternity just for practicing a different religion?

    Good knowledge shared by Veno. I would only add that before we can truly surrender all out thoughts feelings and deeds to the pleasure of the Supreme Lord we must be free the desire to use the Lord as our weapon of retribution against those who we perceive as our enemies. We are Krishna's servants and not the other way around. We must learn and practice the divine art of forgiveness. That will protect us from further material entanglement. This is a necessary component of living in the perpetual sate of God's grace. "O' Lord, please forgive our tresspasses as we forgive those that tresspass against us." Hare Krishna

    Big bang was not the beginning of time

    What a load of rubbish! The silly old man who made up the theory of the 'big bang' must have been on drugs. I wonder if he has heard of god. How can anyone think that. It's like saying god threw a couple of nukes into space and denotonated them. What a laugh. It's a theory just used for buisness and fame.

    Swaminarayana Hindu

    I don't understand how the organisation BAPS is a 'break away' from what Svaminarayana originally set up. In his Vachanamritam, he continually stresses the importance of the Ekantik Sadhu and how a true guru is the gateway to moksa. The "original" Svaminarayana organisations have plunged into mediocrity. The "sadhus" do not follow the eight-fold path of celibacy and the Acharyas have been brought to court on several legal issues. The previous Acharya was dethroned and a new Acharya established. Sadhus are being accused of rape, incest, and embezzlements. Is this what Svaminarayana originally set up? On the other hand, Pramukh Swamiji is a spotless sadhu who has uplifted many societies around India and who has preached non-violence and built beautiful mandirs across the world. He has led thousands to quit cigarette-smoking and drinking alcohol, as well as gotten several other thousands to reconnect with the Hindu heritage and study the scriptures. How can you say that this is NOT what Svaminarayana intended? Look at what BAPS has accomplished -- magnificent mandirs around the world, a beautiful Akshardhama temple in New Delhi, social service work like natural disaster relief and free hot meals for the poor. He has upheld the Vaishnav and Visistadvaita philosophy. Please explain to me why BAPS is a "break-away" from what Svaminarayana taught. Disciples and sadhus of Pramukh Swamiji are very humble and peaceful people. They practice what Svaminarayana taught by studying the Vachanamritam and the Hindu scriptures. BAPS does not get in trouble with the law and have sadhus involved in scandals.

    Who wrote the above? Its seems a devotee of Durga compiled these quotes. Praying to Durga and Krishna is not the same. I appreciate your click/paste but thats surely not the full story being said. -- Durga, worshiped by the people of this mundane world, is the Durga described above. But the spiritual Durga, mentioned in the mantra which is the outer covering of the spiritual realm of the Supreme Lord, is the eternal maidservant of Krsna and is, therefore, the transcendental reality whose shadow, the Durga of this world, functions in this mundane world as her maidservant. (Vide the purport of sloka 3.) __ http://brahmasamhita.com/5/44/en1 {Purport-extract} Maybe shed some light on this Krsnaji /images/graemlins/grin.gif -- Caitanya Mahaprabhu, as naughty boy, approached them. "Oh, my dear sister, what you are doing? Oh, you have brought so many nice things. Give it to Me, and Lord Siva will be very much pleased. Oh, you are worshiping Durga? She is My maidservant and Lord Siva is a great devotee of Me. So you please offer Me all these things; they will be satisfied. You don't require to offer separately." __Lord Caitanya Play Told to Tamala Krsna, August 4, 1969, Los Angeles

    Has anyone seen Lord Narayana?

    > Rohit Iyer <iyer_rohit > Has anyone seen Lord Narayana? > Dear friends I am becoming more and more devoted to > Lord Narayana. You are indeed very fortunate. My salutations to you. > I want to know if anyone has seen the > supreme lord? I am sure your delightful question will elicit a large number of equally delightful answers from the learned and scholarly members of this group. adiyen would like to share what little I know with my very limited knowledge. Yes, countless trillions of nitya and muktha jivatmas have seen and are seeing Bhagavan Narayana perpetually. The Veda says 'tad vishnoh paramam padam sadaa pashyanthi surayah' - the Seers always see the Supreme Pada of Vishnu. Given here is a very partial list of the fortunate ones who have seen the Lord. The list is somewhat chronologically ordered: 1) Lord Brahma 2) Lord Siva 3) The Sanakadhi Rishis, namely, Sanaka, Sanandana, Sanatana and Sanatkumara 4) The 12 Rishi sons of Brahma, namely, Vasishta, Atri, Angiras, Pulastya, Pulaha etc. 5) The Prajapathis such as Kasyapa, Kardama, Daksha etc. 6) Swayambhuva Manu and Satarupa, the first human beings in this Kalpa. 7) The Bhakti-oriented Maharishis such as Narada, Sandilya etc. 8) The Bhagavathothamas such as Prahlada, Dhruva etc. 9) The Asuras such as Hiranyakasipu, Hiranyaksha, etc. 10) The fortunate ones who lived with the Avatharas such as Vasudeva, Devaki, Dasaratha, Kousalya, Nanda, Yashoda, etc. 11) The bhaktas who served the Avatharas such as Guha, Sugriva, Vibeeshana, Hanuman, Arjuna, Uddhava, Daruka, Kuchela, Akrura, Vidura, Bhishma etc. 12) Parasara, Vyasa's father, who gave us the Puranarathna - Vishnupurana 13) Vyasa who gave us the Vedas, the Brahma Sutra, the Satvika Puranas such as Bhagavatha Purana, the Mahabharatha with the 2 gems, the Bhagavad Gita and the Vishnu Sahasranama 14) Vyasa's son, Sukabrahma, who narrated the Bhagavatha Purana 15) The 12 Alvars such as Nammalvar, Periyalvar, Andal etc. who constitute our very breath 16) The great Acharyas of our sampradaya such as Sri Natha Muni, Sri Yamuna Muni, Sri Kanchipurna, Sri Ramanuja, Sri Kuresha, Sri Vedanta Desika, Sri Manavala Mamuni etc. 17) The Acharyas and Vishnu-bhaktas of other sampradayas said to have directly seen the Lord such as Sri Sankara, Sri Padmapadha etc. (Advaita) Sri Madhva, Sri Vyasaraya, Sri Raghavendra etc. (Dvaita) Sri Nimbarka etc. (Dvaitadvaita) Sri Vishnuswami, Sri Vallabha etc. (Suddhadvaita) Sri Chaitanya etc. (Achintya Bheda-bheda) 18) The Vittaladasas such as Thukaram, Namadeva, Ghora Khumba, Choka Mela, Janabai, Chakkubai etc. who served Rukmini and Krishna at Pandaripuram. 19) The Ramadasas such as Bhadrachala Ramadas, Samartha Ramadas and the recent Thyagaraja Swami. 20) And countless billions of other unsung souls. > I would like to know what this > experience is like. Enlightened sages such as Sri Ramanuja spend their whole lifetimes teaching us, ignorant ones, what this experience is like. Like children who prattle their parents' speech, adiyen can only prattle the sacred utterances of those Narayana-Lovers as the answer to your question - 'Unsurpassable Bliss', 'Supreme Endless Love', 'Soul- melting', 'Unsatiating Nectar', 'The Peace that passeth understanding', 'Unending Happiness', 'The Supreme State of Vishnu', 'The True Nature' etc. adiyen begs the pardon of vaishnavas for trying to describe this state, being wholly unqualified to even talk of this Blessed State. > Also I have heard that as one progresses on the > spiritual path one can have visions of the other > Lokas, Devas etc. Has anyone had this vision? Several of the abovesaid mahatmas have had such visions. But they mention that on seeing Sriman Narayana, there is nothing else in the totality of existence that is worth seeing. Besides on seeing Narayana, the totality of existence is seen since Narayana is the Self of the totality of existence. > If anyone has had this experience please let me know > what it was like. adiyen would humbly beg you to approach an Acharyan who would kindly lead you to that Consummate Experience. > Thanks, > rohit dasan, P.Srinivasan
