  1. DEVI Mahatmyam. The title of the scripture describing her origin even has the word 'goddess' in it! I think they're trying to promote their philosophy by being dishonest in their translation. I don't see how one can get 'demigod' or 'demigoddess' out of 'deva' or 'devi'. Krishna is called 'Vasudeva' and no one translates that as 'demigod of the Vasu clan'. Balaram is called 'Baladeva' and no one translates that as 'strong demigod'. They aren't trying to give the 'general idea of the passage' in translating it like that. They're just incorporating their own ideas into their biased translations. I have no problem with people worshipping MahaVishnu. I'm not trying to make anyone give up their worship of Vishnu. I would just like it if some of Lord Vishnu's worshipers would stop degrading the other devas and devis, as if it were some alternate way of praising Vishnu.
  2. What? Where did you get that ridiculous conception from? Yamuna would be the closest deity to being a goddess of the underworld, not Durga.
  3. What, exactly, is calling Durga "half of a goddess" based on? Is she specifically called "half-a-devi" in a scripture, Vaishnava or otherwise? Please, do tell, raghu.
  4. I think we're both over this conversation. Jai Sita-Ram.
  5. कर्म That's karma. As far as poetic justice, I'm not sure. It seems like there should be some type of alternative phrase that would be more relevant to Indian thought that would fit better in sanskrit. Sadly, I can't think of one.
  6. Such humility must only exist among the saints! Where did your guru say that? He said they had to kill themselves, not participate in some massive boycott or sit-in for civil rights.
  7. You can always tell a great Vaishnava by how many insults they hurl. You do realize that I was just replying to your for amusement, right? Okay. Have a nice day!
  8. What the hell? What does that even mean? So many of your posts make no sense whatsoever.

  10. Because I have to sleep and eat, or else I will die and never be able to respond to any of your intriguing posts!
  11. Yeah, yeah. And Vyasa also wrote Linga Purana, Shiva Purana, Skanda Purana, Markandeya Purana, and all the other puranas. Along with all the Upanishads and Tantras! Give me a break.
  12. Hmmm... more inappropriate use of the third-person. It appears as if someone needs a grammar lesson! When referring to oneself, one uses the first person (I, me, my, etc...). When referring to the person one is speaking with in conversation, one uses the second person (you, yours, we, us, our, etc...). When referring to other people in general, one uses the third person (for example, the person's name).
  13. Finally! A brief and to-the-point reply! I'm so proud of you. I like it that you talk about yourself in third person. Very intriguing! Your inappropriate use of the third-person shines much light on an esoteric subject that is usually lost to most samsara-ites. Although this is a wonderfully brief reply, I don't really see what Durga having a husband has to do with selling off virgins for afterlife benefits.
  14. Hmmm... more extremely long replies! Can't you state an idea simply? Not every idea needs to be stated in a ten page essay.
