  1. Namaste Sudharman ji. I recommend the worship of Sri Vishnu. Aum Shanti
  2. SEETA RAAM Here is what I have been taught; Wednesday = no significance Thursday = Vishnu Day Friday - Devi Day Saturday = Saturn Day Sunday = Sun God Day Monday = Sri Shiva Day Tuesday = Devotee Day Snakes are associated with both Sri Vishnu (who lies on a serpent couch) and Sri Shiva (who has a serpent as a garland). Maybe those clues can help. Regards RG OM SHANTI
  3. It has been said that the Supreme has innumerable names. The Supreme is infinite and he cannot be fully comprehended even by the Devas, much less human beings. This unlimitedness does not apply only to names but to his forms, qualities, pastimes, knowledge and power. However people love to speculate about his names. "His name is this.His name is also that." That is how people speak. Often people want to attribute names to the Supreme that are excerpted from non-Vedic literature while denying the very gist of those teachings. This is not valid. It is like extracting the name Vasudev Krishna from the Bhagavad Gita and then dismissing the rest of the text. Due to his causeless mercy the Supreme hears the prayers of all regardless of the name used. However names carry connotations. Therefore he has given us one thousand names with which to worship him. They are the best names to use because they remind us of his forms, qualities, pastimes, knowledge and power. Chanting those names is a very auspicious form of worship. Those who have devoted themselves to non-Vedic literature will of course choose to worship with the names stipulated in those writings. A Sanatan should not disturb or criticize them but he should encourage his fellow Sanatans to follow the path laid out by our scriptures.

  5. Not just any meditation or good works, but specifically "Narada Muni taught him the sacred name of 'Rama' and asked him to sit in meditation, chanting the name of Rama" After you have thoroughly cleansed yourself with a bath, who is there to repay? "Then, he told Ratnakara that his tapasya (meditation) paid off and that the Lord was pleased with him."
  6. Dear Appolonius, I also had serious problems when I was in Kerala but Sri Vishnu allowed me to see them through. First of all I assume that you understand that suicide is never an answer. If you don't face this trial successfully in this life you will have to face it again in a future one. You said that the Vishnu mantras are giving you some relief so take encouragement from that and intensify them in these ways: 1. Make sure you are on pure veg diet (no meat, fish, eggs, etc.) if not already; offer all food and drink to Shree Vishnu before consuming. 2. Abstain from sexual intercourse until this problem is over. 3. Go to bed early so that you can do Vishnu mantras between 4:00 am - 5:00 am - I have found this to be the most powerful. Do not take anything but water until you are done with that morning sadhana. I wish you success. JAI SHREE VISHNU
  7. After years of performing severe austerities, the Creator told Ravana to ask for a boon. He asked that he be invincible to defeat from any devas or demons. The boon was granted. He didn't think to ask for protection from men and animals since he considered them insignificant. Sri Vishnu incarnated as a man (Sri Rama) and with the help of an army of monkeys destroyed Ravana. In this way Ravana's reign of terror and oppression was ended without contradicting the boon that he was given from the Creator. Every time Sri Rama seemed to be in dire straights, we must remember that he was predestined to triumph over Ravana. Sri Vishnu is all-powerful and could easily counter any threat before it even manifests. However he chooses to incarnate Himself and enjoy these lilas (pastimes) for our benefit. The Padma Purana says that by simply remembering the lilas of Sri Vishnu we pass beyond birth and death.
  8. mukeshraj, you sound as if you already believe it and since it seems to have encouraged you, why question it? Sri Vishnu, who dwells equally in everyone is also known as Maheshvara - The Supreme Controller. Therefore nothing, pleasant or unpleasant can happen to us unless He permits. The question is not was He in your dream, the question is - where is He not?
  9. A learned Brahmin in Uttranchal told it like this: Sunday: Day of the Sun God. Monday: Sri Shiva Day. Tuesday: Devotee Day. Wednesday: Any Day. Thursday: Sri Vishnu Day. Friday: Devi Day. Saturday: Planet Saturn Day.
  10. I have personally lost over 100 lbs. I also lift weights and have lots of energy. Here is the best scientific method telling you everything you need to know about eating:<br>www.pcrm.org/health/veginfo/vsk/index.html And to help you build muscle: www.VeganBodyBuilding.com
  11. You should immediately take to a strict vegan diet (no meat, fish eggs or dairy products) from a wide variety of whole foods. Eliminate fried foods, processed foods, etc. Take no oil except for extra-virgin olive oil. Take the time to cook your own food so that you know it is prepared properly. Also eat plenty of raw fruits, vegetables and nuts along with your cooked food - this is important - the sicker you are the more you can benefit from adding raw foods to your diet (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFFTcSIg6wk) Here is a raw food demonstration: Here is the science to back up what I am saying: http://www.pcrm.org/health/veginfo/vsk/index.html Also, give the video games a rest and do scripture study and chant. I am confident that this can help you.
  12. This is completely outrageous. It is also just another indicator of the sad reality that there are places that are not ready for any kind of Hinduism. For development of Vedic culture the society should be basically sattvic and a proper infrastructure must be in place. Equal protection under the law is part of basic infrastructure. Therefore Bangladesh, Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and other such places where law-enforcement may be sympathetic to atrocities such as this are not ready for any kind of Hinduism. I say leave them be and try to focus on re-awakening spirituality in the Indian sub-continent so that people like this don't become the majority there.
  13. There is an important distinction to be made. Arjuna was told to kill his guru and grandfather along with the rest of the Kshatriyas supporting Duryodhana because they were on the battlefield under arms.
  14. Here is some good scientific information on diet:<br>http://www.pcrm.org/health/veginfo/vsk/index.html
  15. It is good to supplement the diet with raw food and I have experienced many benefits from this. However it is not necessary to eat a 100% raw food diet (as I think someone has already pointed out). Everyone can find the right balance of raw and cooked foods that suit them by being more attuned to their own health. The body gives excellent feedback!
