Can we drink decaff coffee or hot chocolate?
kichigai replied to oggydude's topic in The Hare Krishna Forumfirst of all it depends on the deity you're offering it to. coffee is rajasic, so most KRSNA deities won't accept this as an offering. cacao i'd have to look up. you could do a "yogi tea" for a hot drink and carefully select the spices you use. the easiest way to drink "transcentental" coffee is, to add a little water offered to KRSNA (for bathing or such) to your coffee.

Can someone please help me with the meaning of this symbol?
kichigai replied to cwsyeh's topic in Spiritual Discussionsit simply says "padma". generell meaning is "lotus (flower)". the first "letter" is a pa, the second a ligature of d and ma. so it is a word and not a symbol.
