  1. Thanks for pointing out the definition of sadhu, I had a very bad view on them until now... blame the media! /images/graemlins/smile.gif that was a very nice post , "This sadhu means krsna-bhakta."- I will definitely keep that in mind.
  2. Its the most degrading form of life by my view. Even if krishna comes as a mosquito , what can he do? Spread West Nile virus or malaria to the bad people or something... ? /images/graemlins/smile.gif Or have a Mosquito revolution by making all the mosquitos only drink blood from the "evil doers" and not from the good people.
  3. You don't have to be a sadhu to follow krishna consciousness. A sadhu would just sit idly and do nothing. Thats not what we want. We want to work for krishna, but how? well, what you are doing right now... you are not doing it because it is for yourself, but you are doing it because it is your dharma. You have to support your family... your kids, you have to provide them with shelter and their neccessities. You are not doing it for yourself, but you are doing it for krishna. Also, Krishna is not in just your idols, he is every where, even in the body that you are in right now. So, to take care of it you need to do what is necessary for it. Like some food to eat and a place to live. So, when you are eating your food, you are feeding that body that belongs to krishna and also working to feed the bodies of krishna that depend on you. You are working for krishna now, you don't have to leave it and go to a village and do agriculture. Whats the point in making your life harder by doing something that krishna didn't want to make you do in the first place (Like Agriculture). You have a logical brain if you are a computer programmer, wasting such a thing and becoming a farmer is a terrible waste of such a logical brain . Anyway, those are just my views and I think you are a saint in your own profession. You can stay at bare minimum in your profession, by doing everything for your family and friends and nothing for yourself.
  4. Isn't it true that in India, women who give birth to boys get more respect that women who give birth to girls ? I read it in a book called "Global Studies" in my school . Even though I spent a good deal of my life in India... most of it is just a haze, so I dared not to question it. /images/graemlins/smile.gif But is it true? I am just curious...
  5. Is a mosquito turning into fish and then into a bigger fish to amaze a king. I don't know if the starting point is a mosquito or a small fish in this avatar.
  6. The Swan that we see in the story, is it symbolizing krishna? And the crow then must symbolize the living entity. When the living being is proud, it starts to think of itself as great as Krishna. But it is unable to cross the Ocean of Material Samsara as easily as the Swan could cross... So, it needs the help of the swan to make it cross the ocean. The people who have playfully tricked the crow... do they symbolize maya? Maya tricks us, thus making us fall into the deep ocean of material disgust in which we can do nothing but drown unless the swan like krishna comes to our rescue. But there are many swans... whats up with that?
  7. If krishna wants it to change the weather.
  8. Please kindly take a minute to register and then discuss, because this stinks~~~~~~~~ All I am seeing is "Guest" argue with "Guest" and then "Guest" argues with "Guest" and then Avinash comes up and argues with "Guest" . So please. takes some time off to register and "Delete" the confusion in this forum.
  9. Once upon a time , Narada muni goes to earth and sees all the hellish conditions people live in. Then , he goes back to space and says! hey I got an idea! I will make Vishnu come down on earth ! this will be a great game. He then asks a Muni to go visit the three Trinities because they invited him or something. Then the Muni (A very powerful one) goes to Brahma, there brahma is meditating , so he does not welcome the muni in! So, the muni curses him and says no one will ever worship brahma! He then visits shiva loka, there Shiva is too busy with romanticizing with Shakthi, so the muni curses that people will only worship his linga! And then he goes to Vaikunta, there Mr . Big guy himself sleeps on a snake in the milky ocean. Then the Muni is angered! because he is not welcomed appropriately, so He kicks Vishnu in his chest!. But Laxmi is in Vishnu's chest! She gets angry! really really angry! /images/graemlins/mad.gif But being God himself, Vishnu knows how to relieve the false ego of one of his devotees. So, he goes and grabs the Muni's feet!. /images/graemlins/shocked.gif Then, asks for forgiveness /images/graemlins/shocked.gif Laxmi is really really mad now /images/graemlins/mad.gif then Vishnu knows a secret. All of the Muni's power is in his feet, his ego is also in his feet. So, he presses his feet really hard and takes out all the Ego and also the power of the muni. The Yogi, then falls to his feet and says , "Oh my god! , I have kicked my beloved vishnu in his chest!, How fallen i am " and asks for forgiveness. Then Vishnu really simply forgives him! Now laxmi is really mad!, because first, Vishnu lets the Muni kick her when she is in Vishnu's heart. /images/graemlins/mad.gif , then he grabs the guys feet /images/graemlins/shocked.gif /images/graemlins/mad.gif , then he just forgives him with out punishing him for his misbehavior /images/graemlins/mad.gif In her anger, she says " Forget yoU! , I am going to go and tell my mother about this!" (Her mother is earth, and oh yes, this is all a game for them) Then, she leaves!. Vishnu then runs after her calling "Priye, Priye! don't leave me!"... with tears in his eyes. She leaves him, and he comes to earth searching for her. Even though he comes to earth looking for laxmi, he forgets all about his Godliness and starts meditating for his beloved. .........then the srinivasa story begins...
  10. I don't know what purana it is , but I will be frank with you. Some relative of mine told me the story when I went to India. It is quite prominent in Tirupathi. Tirumala and Tirupathi story is very different. It is about Vishnu coming down to the earth so that he can please his devotees. He does not come down to the earth by himself though, Laxmi leaves him, so he runs after her. Laxmi in south India is considered the care taker for us souls. We are in Laxmi's heart and Laxmi is in Vishnu's heart. The story however is the story of Vishnu, it is probably in Vishnu purana... may be i am not sure. But I could post my own version of the story here... if you want. I know it, but then again, you wouldn't want to trust a kid like me /images/graemlins/blush.gif /images/graemlins/smile.gif So, you can search it here www.tirumala.org
  11. A girl child is considered "Laxmi". Sometimes people want a girl child because Laxmi arrives and brings them fortune. but it is true, they rejoice more for the boy child.
  12. Lingam= penis... /images/graemlins/blush.gif Yoni= Vagina... /images/graemlins/blush.gif /images/graemlins/shocked.gif Please, don't take this in a bad way, I DON"T KNOW ANY OTHER WAY OF EXPLAINING THIS. Because shiva is also the god of fertility his penis is worshipped. The Shiv-ling is actually a Sexual Congress between Shiva, and Shakthi (his wife). Showing both sexual organs. It is not disgusting or anything. This western culture that we live in today makes it "disgusting" or "idiotic". It is said that once upon a time , he was worshipped, not his body parts, but because of a curse by a very famous Yogi saint... He is not worshipped but his sexual congress is worshipped.
  13. You are probably more right than me, but now I am curious. So, I ask this out of curiosity... How can Ravana be a demon and a brahmana. He was a great learned vedic brahmana before he got that false ego that destroyed his life. Brahmanas are sattvic, but demons are just plain tamasic, so how can sattvic brahmana be a demon at the same time. Wouldn't that require him to have tamasic buddhi in him ? If he has Tamasic Buddhi then he will be considered demon right?
  14. You have a great website, it is nice to see another devotee clearly write, "this is not me, but this is just my physical body". Please, do not drop anything, because all names are his, we can see that in Vishnu Sahasranama Stotra.
  15. The smartest person in school is a blonde /images/graemlins/smile.gif I am not the smartest person in my school, So... Am I more stupid than her! /images/graemlins/shocked.gif That means the whole school is stupid /images/graemlins/shocked.gif Our school is the second best in Long Island , So, The whole Long Island is stupid /images/graemlins/shocked.gif Oh my god, the smartest person in my school is going to MIT! /images/graemlins/shocked.gif so, MIT is filled with bunch of idiots because they accepted a blonde!! Oh no!!!!!!!, MIT is one of the smartest places in the world! but it is filled with blondes like the one from my school The whole world is stupid! /images/graemlins/shocked.gif I just found out that the whole world with all 6 billion(and counting) people is stupid! /images/graemlins/shocked.gif /images/graemlins/mad.gif Then I conclude that i am stupid because i am dumber than some blonde /images/graemlins/mad.gif /images/graemlins/mad.gif
  16. Which Christianity are you talking about, the one who is in your thoughts? or the one that Christ preached? Which Islam are you talking about... the one who is in your thoughts, or the one that Muhammed forced ? Same with Buddhism, the one that is in people's thoughts or the one buddha preached? If you think they are the same, I am sorry, but I think they are not.

  18. To my understanding a "Demon" is basically a person of a certain "Tattva" , There are three kinds of "Tattvas", Sattvic, Rajasic and Tamasic. May be, Demon is an individual with more Tamasic tattva than rajasic or sattvic tattvas. The "Tattva" however refers to behavior, it is a direct translation.. I think. Sattvic would be a mode of goodness. Rajasic would be a mode of passion and Tamasic would be a mode of ignorance. Ignorance is evil, thats why the demons in many scriptures from our past try to take people away from sattvic tattva people. There are good demons though, for example, the demon that comforted Sita in Ravana's prison. She is a demon, however she has Sattvic tattva, so she is not a demon... Ok I am confusing my self, I will stop /images/graemlins/crazy.gif
  19. The whole point of the story is that Krishna comes to protect you in the time of need. It is Yada Yada Hi Dharmasya, Gyanir bhavathu nibharata... etc. etc. what age he is, is not important. The moral of the incident is. The age of Prahlad would be like asking about the body parts of "Narasimha" For example, his finger nails are considered to be missiles of fire! now , how is that possible?! wouldn't those nails detonate on Narasimha's body and..."BOOM!" No? , why not? __________ So, the point is Krishna comes out always to protect us, whether it is a car accident, or a fanatic trying to kill you or something else. thank you.
  20. Is he kalki? they say he is an incarnation of Krishna in kali yuga, so is he kalki?
  21. It is the Indian Mentality. Changing it is quite hard. However, it is not always the case. In some of the well off families it does not really matter if the child is a girl or a boy. My aunt grew up with out any discrimination in her family. But when she got married to some guy from an Indian family in A.P. India, she saw the difference. Most of the men and women are sexist and the sexist biases are toward women. Even now, In my father's village in India, the statements like " He is a boy!, He doesn't have to do it!" and "Don't let him do it!, he is a boy!" or "you are a girl you have to do it!" are quite prominent.
  22. Most of the verses in Quran which are about their hell and everything, are taken from "Garuda Purana" from the Puranas. Its a fact, because most of the verses in Garuda Purana that explain about the lowly planets, are very similar to the verses in Quran.
  23. So, you force people to see the truth? Truth has to be realized my friend, not forced. Even I know that, and I am just an idiot /images/graemlins/smile.gif . look around you, you live in the 21st century. The verses of militancy in Quran have to change or the whole religion is just nothing but maya. Thank you.
  24. The government of India has corrupted officials who rule not for the society, but for themselves. If we examine some of the states, there is no democracy at all. Many gangsters rule by forcing people to get them elected , 80% of the the population does not know politics. The Political Illiteracy creates a perfect ground for the politicians to make their self interest grow. There are many instances where the government tried to give funds to the various departments in the beauracracy so that it will reach the people, but most of the money has been shared by the politicians. There is no security for the middle class. There is no trial by jury. The whole government of India is a mixture of socialist ideas plus the laissez faire. This type of system could be successful like in sweden, it is not successful in India. The parties such as Congress and BJP etc fight over their views to demean each other's party. So, no party can implement new ideas. It is like the negative adds we see here during the election times. There is negativity all over the place in India. The competition grows, the people who study Phds are nothing more than taxi drivers and auto rishaw drivers, because there is a lack of work . It is not possible to implement anything in India, because the politicians are selfish. Only now, the south is starting to really develop because of a new kind of a leader in one of the states called Andra, he is Chandra babu Naidu, he is doing alot for the state of Andra and he is trying to get funds for the poor there. But he is only one man who is doing something good in the midst of 100s of people trying to loot what the barren land of India can produce in its last and final days. The natural resources have been destroyed in India. The whole southern country will have no water in the near future.
