  1. Dear sir, No one was talking about Srimate Radharani's conduct, if that's what you mean. Just the pseudo Radharani.
  2. Another good one for hay fever is New Era's (or Nelson's, in England and sometimes in America)homeopathic tissue salts. If you take these in season, the next year symptoms will be improved or gone. But I appreciate the discussion here on going deep, to heal the causes of these sensitivities, and build strength in the system. I am afraid to take ephedra, if it does decrease appetite. I once had a herbal blend (in pill form) containing this, for vitality, but it made me not want to eat so I stopped. Similarly, about the wholesale prescribing of herbs as a safe cure all for everybody, I was taking licorice root pills for a couple of months, and my potassium levels went really low, so my doctor asked what herbs I take, and when I said licorice he said it is unsafe for me at this time as it takes the pot. out of the system. Talking of strengthening the system, is there something that helps build the appetite? Everything is getting more and more tricky for me, keeping alive. thanks, Jayaradhe
  3. Thanks, Atma. It is not pleasurable to say these things, and your supportive words are appreciated. I also appreciate Shashi's words on this matter. ys, JR
  4. Well you knew that already. Did you think changing your username would make it any different? JR
  5. I appreciate humor--especially Krsna's--as much as anybody. But some things are disrespectful to say even in joke, and if you were genuinely connected in a "casual" relationship with Krsna you would not display this intimate relationship to others. Srila Prabhupada didn't discuss his personal relationship wtih Krsna. I am sorry to speak so frankly. But at best you seem to be showing off, and at worst you display symptoms of prakrita-sahajiya-ism. It is utter nonsense to talk this way. Jayaradhe
  6. Yes. It's simple. The real Srimate Radharani, toward whom you are showing much disrespect, would not have to wonder if she was Radharani. Only an offender would wouldr such a thing. The only thing I am wondering now is if your name was given to you or if you chose it youself. Jayaradhe P.S. When I asked if you displayed some of Radha's quality of cleverness, it was not meant to draw attention to you, but rather to showcase yet another of Radharani's qualities.
  7. This relates to Pratyatosa's thread called "Rules of Cleanliness" (or whatever it's called, but is too long to post there. Please take heed. An important warning about Storerooms ... A stock clerk was sent to clean up a storeroom in Maui, Hawaii. When he got back, he was complaining that the storeroom was really filthy and that he had noticed dried mouse or rat droppings in some areas. A couple of days later, he started to feel like he was coming down with stomach flu, complained of sore joints and headaches, and began to vomit. He went to bed and never really got up again. Within two days he was severely ill and weak. His blood sugar count was down to 66, and his face and eyeballs were yellow. He was rushed to the emergency at Pali-Momi, where he was diagnosed to be suffering from massive organ failure. He died shortly before midnight. No one would have made the connection between his job and his death, had it not been for a doctor who specifically asked if he had been in a warehouse or exposed to dried rat or mouse droppings at any time. They said there is a virus (much like the Hanta virus) that lives in dried rat and mouse droppings. Once dried, these droppings are like dust and can easily be breathed in or ingested if a person does not wear protective gear or fails to wash face and hands thoroughly. An autopsy was performed on the clerk to verify the doctor's suspicions. This is why it is extremely important to ALWAYS carefully rinse off the tops of canned sodas or foods, and to wipe off pasta packaging, cereal boxes, and so on. Almost everything you buy in a supermarket was stored in a warehouse at one time or another, and stores themselves often have rodents. Most of us remember to wash vegetables and fruits but never think of boxes and cans. The ugly truth is, even the most modern, upper-class, super store has rats and mice. And their warehouse most assuredly does! Whenever you buy any canned soft drink, please make sure that you wash the top with running water and soap or, if that is not available, drink with a straw. The investigation of soda cans by the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta discovered that the tops of soda cans can be encrusted with dried rat's urine, which is so toxic it can be lethal. Canned drinks and other foodstuffs are stored in warehouses and containers that are usually infested with rodents, and then they get transported to retail outlets without being properly cleaned.
  8. It already did that. JR [This message has been edited by JRdd (edited 07-04-2002).]
  9. Is that sort of like the thief yelling I'm not the thief? JR
  10. I just mentioned to a friend sitting here the title of this thread, and she reminded me of the story of when Krsna had a headache, and the only thing that would relieve it was the dust from the gopis' feet on His head. So even though the gopis were told that they would go to hell if they put dust from their feet on His head, they were willing to do so, if it meant relieving Krsna. JR
  11. Besides exploring to find out the root causes, as theist says, in the meantime I would suggest using grapefruit seed extract in drops made especially for the ears. This is a natural and very powerful antibiotic. I got rid of severe pneumonia last year sipping nothing but water with drops of grapefruit seed extract. After days of being hardly able to move, even to the bathroom, the first night after taking this I woke up in the night literally SOAKED (I mean wet!)in front, chest area, from fever perspiring it out. The next morning I was noticebly better, and quickly regained my health. I hope this helps. ys, Jayaradhe
  12. Oh good one! Very interesting! The Lord in the body genes, and the Lord in the heart. Makes sense. I love all the other responses I read this morning, too. Such an intelligent thoughtful group of people here. Now, I wonder too about animals seeming to be psychic sometimes. Like cats. Some kind of communication going on without words, or sounds. Are they following instinctual signs, perhaps indiscernable to us, like body movements, scents, etc.? Sometimes I wonder about the similarities and differences between instinct, intuition, and psychic-ness. Right now, I am working on a novel about a boy who spends a lot of time with his dreams, intuitions, instincts, and visions. Sometimes he gets it right, and sometimes he doesn't. Among other things, this novel explores the idea of discipline being the needed element, to control these spontaneous events, and how they are interpreted. Otherwise, it is just wild speculations, shots in the dark. Apart from the pure devotee, people can't always be right about what they perceive. So how come we are provided with these mini and potential abilities, like telepathy and intuition, if we all need guidance, discipline, someone to guide us so we don't go following our own whims and interpretations? Is it that intuition is like a talent, that needs to be practiced, and used for the highest purposes? Just a trail of lots of little thoughts here, hope someone can make sense of it and feedback on it. Jayaradhe Jayaradhe
  13. I have a certain intuition that someone has let their guard down and is letting his true knowledge of good English usage be known here. In learning second languages, word play, being culturally-based, is usually learned well after grammar is. I don't know. Call it logic, call it intuition. It's just a feeling I have.... But I agree with Radharani about Supersoul. He is the source of all knowledge and so provides even the new animal with knowledge of how to suckle, etc. Sometimes I ponder/wonder about the difference between intuition and instinct though. JR
  14. I thought in the first dream you were supposed to prepare the groceries and offer them to Krsna, regardless of what it meant to you and your own body. But dreams are so interpretive sometimes it's better to just enjoy them. (As for veganism, milk is supposed to be conducive for spiritual life, for building the brain tissues. I think when things are overused, or our bodies are out of balance, then we become restricted in what we can eat. I can't have much milk either, a half cup of hot, maybe once every couple of months...mmm, what a dreamy treat!). I never saw Krsna in a dream, except in Deity form, and He would sometimes move and talk, sometimes just through His eyes. Your second dream sounds downright creepy. Like being in both worlds. Which is just about how it is for us. Some devotees here have some really cool dreams, I hope they will catch this thread and share them. ys, JR
  15. Well it was not known to me. Interesting about the different parts aligning with different healing stages. Can't write more as I at this moment I actually happen to be eating a cinnamon roll. JR
  16. The reason I haven't written in the guestbook yet is I want to read the site more, so I can maybe say more in its praises, which I well expect to do, judging from the quality of what I have seen so far. I am glad to hear there is a picture of SS, as though he is famous for his preaching, I don't think I ever saw any pictures of him in all this time. Which says something right there. Me either actually. I guess I was carelesly throwing it out, to maybe get someone to spill the beans or something. Shashi is much more positive, and I hope is not offended. But something about the nature of the broken English makes me wonder... JR
  17. Thanks prabhus for clearing that up about Srila Prabhupada being mentioned. I have great respect for Srila Siddhaswarup, ever since I began hearing about him in the early seventies, and I enjoy reading Gaurachandra's posts from his radio show, and hearing about him from Mahaksa. I just didn't browse the site enoough to have seen Srila Prabhupada's name. There is so much to see there! I'm glad to hear of the meta tag info from gHari, I have been wondering about that too. I am still wondering who the mischievous Shashi is. I keep thinking he is jijaji. thanks, all, JR
  18. Sure did. (Besides Her Name, do you carry some of Srimati Radharani's quality of cleverness, too?)
  19. Well, I went back to add my praise to your guestbook, but didn't see the link? A small correction: On the left of the page, your link says "Share this site to a friend". It should read "Share this site WITH a friend". Keep up the great work. JR
  20. This is a really impressive site, prabhu, though I was disappointed not to find Srila Prabhupada's name mentioned once (though it may be there, somewhere). As he is Srila Siddhasvarupananda's spiritual master, I am sure he would be very pleased to see this acknowledgement and credit included. Other than that, the whole thing is very dynamic, and I am impressed with your articles and your writing style. Love the explanations of true meditation, how to practice mantra meditation, and there seem to be a wealth of other types of helpful articles, like the specific health ones. I was reading one article, on self-pity, and liked what you said about trying to dominate another person is like trying to dominate the weather; it is just not possible. A futile exercise. You include the personal element in your writing which makes it really reader friendly for the likes of me. The design of the site is great too. Thanks for this link. If you gave some credit to Srila Prabhupada, I would recommend this site to anybody. thanks, JR
  21. No problem, only that I am realising how foolish I am, so don't wish to inflict any of my silliness here and spoil a quite good thread. Srila Prabhupada said you can tell a fool when she opens her mouth, and I wouldn't want to flaunt it. People are not supposed to notice my lesser intelligence. Thanks for the good wishes, though, I think it is good to love people even when they are foolish. And may everyone have the same good wishes come their way. I'll keep reading for now, and maybe Atma will come up with more gems, too. JR
  22. Oh, sorry! I was referring to the five signs of intelligence you cited. JR
  23. theist is a bear. Ask him about this. BV: I like how you threw in the extra word to this thread's theme: Are men ALL more intelligent than women? Without it, the argument seems too black and white. JRdd
