  1. Thanks a lot for the exact location of where I can find the murthy. I will try to take a trip to Chennai if possible. Thanks again --Hari bol
  2. Hello all, I will be traveling to India next month and was hoping I would make a trip to Mayapur. Hopefully I will finally be able to get an Ugra Nrsimha murthy from there. Now my question is, if anyone has been to Mayapur and they can tell me, if an Ugra Nrsimha murthy will be readily available or do I have to custom made it? I plan to stay around 4-5 days in Mayapur, so don’t really have time for custom made murthy’s. I have seen Maa Durga and Kali murthys in Calcutta a few years back and was hoping I could get hold of something like that of Ugra Nrsimha. Thanks for any tips available. Hari bol.
  3. Dear devotees, This may come as awkwardly to you as it’s for me. They say materials don’t buy happiness and though its true but right now I am in a situation where I wish to have been more of a materialistic person. I don’t want your money but I am in dire need of someone’s help, someone who lives in USA specifically. I have been married for 4 years now and have been living away from my wife because of financial reason, anyways we are at the last stages of our immigrant visa and I need a joint sponsor to help me complete this task. A joint sponsor will basically work as god parent on papers, I don’t need your money and I will be the main sponsor, just that I need to show past 3 years of tax returns but I only have 2007’s tax return paper. I have got only 5 weeks to left before I can submit these papers and I am trying every other resource I can to get some help, so if you think you can help please let me know, my email address is joethomashall (at) gmail.com .

  5. no answer, please would really appreciate if someone can give me any insight over things, let it be good or bad but at least something

  7. here is my favorate youtube video ever. this woman has the most range on her voice that ive ever seen.
  8. this sock puppet one had me roleing on the ground.
  9. sounds like you are trying to win hearts and minds.
  10. but didnt god create this material world out of himself? and if so,every atom would be a part of god? god is with out form, but it is hard to focus on god as void. the murti is there to keep the devotee mindful of god. the devotee knows this is only a symbol of him, not everyone is at the same level of spiritual progress. for some advanced people, simply chanting Om is enough. but for those less advanced, the lord does allow himself to worshiped as haveing form,because that is a great help to those aspireing to reach him. it is his kindness to us,as he knows our limitations. so what is the problem with worshiping him in stone or wood. this is my understanding.
  11. this arghya, im unable to find what it is,even my wife doesnt know.

  14. do you know if this book has any other name? is this the same as the archana padhati? if so,this book is impossible to get
  15. that definately is a strange scenario.but you say 3 operations for no good reason, do feel there had to be some reason if they were going to operate 3 times. i remember for a long time i felt i had some sort of "curse of kali" after our wedding. its a family custom of hers of visiting the kalis temple for blessing after a marriage. after that,everything imaginable that could go wrong did go wrong. its like my world started crumbleing. so in the back of my mind i was attributing all the bad that was happening to kali. but it wasnt,it was my own faulty planning,but it was easy for me to blame things on her.sometimes things just happen. in my case it was a little of that and poor planing on things.things still are not perfect,but little by little things are working out for the best. neiter of us are realy religiouse types.
  16. wondering if anyone might be able to help me learn to do puja for Narasimha. i can be reached by email at joethomashall@gmail.com
  17. its funny how you guys push vegitarianism on everyone like you do. not everyone follows your strict path, doesnt make them bad. you do your thing, and let others do theirs.
  18. hilariouse, like the part where he says how he can get used to it )
  19. hilariouse post,, you must have too much of free time on your hands
  20. i have seen websites offering silas, but from my understanding, you have to be given those. and also,once you begin worshiping,you have to worship those like 2 times daily. and if you are leaving out of town, you have to make sure somebody will do the pujas n your absence. there is some new zealand hare krishna site i found devoted to shalagram-sila worship, you might want to do a google search. ill try to find it and give the link if you are unable to find it.
