  1. There is a movie on the Mahabharata that caame out in the 80's I think. I've not seen it, but I wish to. I heard it was good.
  2. Sephiroth, No I meant for the Bala Mantra. It is mentioned in the Ramayana when Rama and his brother are out with the sage. The Gita verse in my post [2/69] is my signature. :-)
  3. Does anyone know of a translation for them?
  4. I've read: Gita [100% understanding] Mahabharata [Only read the very beginning up to where King Dhritarashtra laments on all the things that have happened during the war] Quran [95% understanding]
  5. AIDS is sexual transmitted disease and last I checked, Man don't have sex with monkeys. That it is, but people can also get it from the doctor or other instruments where blood is dealt with.
  6. I agree with you Barney, about service to mankind.

    I'd like to discuss the varnas or social classes. Is it an inheritance? For example, I know alot of my family do military service and work for law enforcement [like my brother just joined the marines and two of my blood uncles are cops. I'm trying to be a cop too]. Does that make me a kshatriya? When people from two different varnas marry is it true that the female must take on the males class? Why?
  8. Kafirs = Unbelievers or rejectors
  9. a temple is a community place, and some who come there may get unduely attracted to the priest if she is a young women. theis could cause sinful activity. to avoid such happening, the poojaris are males, and mostly married. Females and males get turned on and are attracted to the opposite sex. I do not see the reason mentioned above as valid because I'm sure a female could avoid sinful activity if a man likes her just as a male can avoid any sinful activity. Besides a female can like a male priest too even though he be married.
  10. all 18 chapters face in 18 directions. I disagree. The main direction is Krishna Conciousness and turning from a material way of thinking. As was the case with Arjuna in the very 1st chapter. He was troubled, forgot, and therefore thought as the material wo/man thought. Then he shows us that is we take Krishna as our teacher, let him guide our chariot, then we can be guided. Arjuna said: My dear Krishna, O infallible one, illusion is now gone, I have regained my memory by Your mercy. I am now firm and free from doubt and am prepared to act according to Your instructions. [bVG 18:73] Because you doubt the scripture you are sure not to understand it [bVG 4:40].
  11. 1. What makes up the Hindu religion? It is the eternal duty, or Sanatana Dharma. There are different sects as far as I know who follow different texts as the core to their ideology. 3. Explain the desire for liberation from earthly existance. The modes of nature/gunas and one's action are part of what keeps people returning to the material life. Devotional service to Krishna and selfless service, denying the fruits of one's work will help to keep one from repeating incarnations.
  12. Why do women play a much smaller role in religion than men? Your questions are interesting and I hope the people here will entertain them. I should also like to know what roles can women play in Sanatana Dharma.
  13. hahahaha, just having a laff. Hey don't hate! /images/graemlins/smile.gif

    bad karma

    One can be free from the bondage of works by working self-lessly with one's mind on their work and on Krishna [bG 2:39-41].
