  1. You know ... everyone here who said they "believe" in a specific "God", when someone ask them to proof that "God" exist, they will be dumbfonded. It is same for Hindus, Christians and Muslims.


    However, ONLY truth faithful one are those who understand God and its Actions (lilla as Hindus called it).


    God's action with Man - some studies it as History. Some studies it as strategy (in life), some studies it as theology and some studies it simply for faithful reasons. In short, everyone studies it.


    Only the lazy ones claims they believe in a God but fail to study Him or understand Him.


    ISKON needs to resume their teachings in India.

    I realize Srila Prabhuda decided to focus on the West, but if their teachings are so effective, why not return to the Motherland?


    Sanatana Dharma has never had a strong need for conversion because the entire country had always been Hindu, but now with this globalization, we need to be ready to defend our religion. But even that sounds fanatical, and smells somewhat like out-fanatacizing the fanatics.


    However, I can't imagine that Christian schools teach the Bible in school. How is that even legal?


    Why rely on ISCKON only? Where are the rest? :confused:


    And India is not a Hindu country, it is a Secularist country and Hindusm is dying there. People are starving and homeless while India ready to spend 2.2 BILLION dollars to shoot a man to space. Hindusm teaches you that? :mad:


    This is paranoia. Moreover, you only get what you deserve. It is karma.


    Karma is Cause and Effect, NOT Cause and Blame.


    Hindus themselves have allowed themselves to be fooled by other religion in name of peace and tolerance, so it is about time they stop fooling themselves and start educating the World about Hindusm - including how to Live like one.


    No, this is not paranoid ... this is fact. People are out to get Hindusm - and those people are Christians, Muslims and Atheists. Be warn for tomorrow, it is no one else's fault but your own if you do not teach yourself and your children about Hindusm. :deal:

  4. I was reading this news on .com when something occured to me (out of the blue actually).


    Source : http://news./s/nm/20061109/sc_nm/space_saturn_dc



    By Will Dunham Thu Nov 9, 5:32 PM ET



    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A colossal, swirling storm with a well-developed eye is churning at Saturn's south pole, the first time a truly hurricane-like storm has been detected on a planet other than Earth,


    The storm on the giant, ringed planet is about 5,000 miles wide, measuring roughly two thirds the diameter of Earth, with winds howling clockwise at 350 mph (550 kph).


    Jupiter's Great Red Spot, which swirls counterclockwise, is far bigger, but is less like a hurricane because it lacks the typical eye and eye wall.


    The images -- essentially a 14-frame movie -- were captured over a period of three hours on October 11 by the U.S. space agency's Cassini spacecraft as it passed about 210,000 miles from the planet as part of its exploration of Saturn and its moons.



    What if the Churning of the Milky Ocean as stated in Purana is actually a cosmic event which occurs in every planet like what happening in Saturn and Jupiter? :eek4:


    Maybe in Earth, it was closer to the Sun so the energy it needs to generate life as in Cambrian Explosion is obtained easily, thus it is short in duration compared to Jupiter.


    What if this sort of "storms" are actually another event for generating life as in Cambrian Explosion? If it is true, then we could see the same event elsewhere on the Cosmos where Life could exist.


    PS : Did I mention that comments are welcomed?

  5. In those days, people believe in Boons and Curse so a wise men who have accumulated enough merits could use it the same way people cast spells today, to cast curses onto others.


    Nowadays, black magic is real in some part of the world while in other, so-called "Civilized" parts, Magic is considered as something supernatural.


    In short, the mind of a person CAN BE USED to inflict damage to others if the mind is trained hard enough. Check Stigmata on the Net to know how the Mind can inflict wounds upon oneself.


    Dear members of this erudite fellowship,


    In YOGA the term celebacy can also mean disciplining and preservation of sexual energy and is discussed in Yogic Text like Patanjali's Yoga Sutras. There are many yogic techniques, such as meditation and asanas (e.g. shirsasana and pranayams) that can help a person to achieve the aim of celebacy.



    A Guru (who releives a person from the darkness of ignorance ) You can be a self guru because of your expertise. It does not mean that the concept of " seeking gurus " itself is a waste. If you say nobody needs a guru then what is the necessity for the teachers/lecturers ?. A guru is also a teacher in the spiritual path.


    There may be so many routes to reach a destination. But if you know the straight or shortcut route you can better avoid the time and strain. Guru is a person who teaches you the correct path or way in a spiritual pursuits. Books are rudimentary and they may help to know the elements of yoga, but for practising " yoga " definety you need a guru. It is a very common and furndamental principle for the mankind and not confined only to Hindus.

    - GURUJI


    Sigh ... I'm probably speaking to someone who lives under a nutshell. :eek4:


    Here's what is happening in the World - for your information as well as for those who are reading this thread. What is happening with Yoga and other Hindu exercises and practise?


    In the West, Yoga Studios are very famous and many westerners comes to learn its beneficts for their body.


    Besides Yoga, Ayurveda is also making Westerns turn their attention toward more homeopathic approach in life. In Malaysia alone, in a small area of Petaling Jaya (which is roughly 30% of Bombay/Mumbai), I have seen AT LEAST 3 Yoga Studios available for Malaysia of ALL sort of Life.


    And don't be so boostful. Do you know WHAT makes me ache in the heart? This studios are run by NON-Hindus, giving beneficts to Non-Hindus organisations and foundation and for benefits of non-Hindu beliefs. In society where Christians condemns Hindusm in the open, they stealing Hindu culture right under your nose.


    In the West, Ayurvedic remedies are been studied and patented by Western Phamautetical companies. Millions, if not Billions of dollars worth of patents are been stolen by West EVER YEAR. Malaysia happened to be one of the first countries in Asia to condemn this practise back in 1992 and stopped Westerners from continue to steal from Malaysian rainforest.


    A lot of people, including from Japan and China have developed Interest in Yoga, BUT this is not expoited by Hindus BECAUSE some idiot kept barking that to learn this, you need to go and find some Guruji and bang your head onto his feet. You do that, while foreigners continues to steal from your children and later charge them for what supposed to be free and part of their heritage.


    So stop hiding behind a nutshell called India and see the Whole Wide World. There is a World outside India and if you kept hiding in there, you will soon be left behind.


    PS : I have personally asked about Yoga by Japanese colleaques who come to work on contract basics (my company is Japanese based so they will come from overseas for a year or so). Many of them are interested and I have seen them practise it at their homes. It is beautiful to see something so classical, beneficial and beautiful to be used by foreigners and not Indians alone. Don't you agree?

  7. You know ... sometimes, Hindus could be so blinded by simple fact and can easily suggest running off to an "expert". Can't you people think for yourselves?


    Sport - good for your body and used to regulate energy.

    Meditation - good for the mind and used to help control the mind and the heart.

    Religion - good for the soul and promote Spiritualism.


    You go anywhere also, you will be told the same thing - whether it is a guru ji or a Yogi. So why tell some guy to run off to find some Yogi when they could do it on their own?


    Celibacy is not a dangerous or powerful weapon. It is something man can handle on his own by practising Meditation, Sports (including Martial Arts) and Religion without help of some gurus.


    Okay I see no one has replied on this thread but I want to say that it has been a relatively successful few days of being a brahmacarya for me! Hopefully I can keep it up, I want to give up all alcohol and sex, it took some years but I think i can now fully appreciate the true nature of these tamasic activities. I find it exceedingly difficult to give up lustful/sexual desires, especially when seeing a beautiful girl, or even an image of one. I no longer want to objectify women, or engage in this maya. Any support from you great devotees would be most beneficial. Thank you, and jai sri Krishna to whoever reads this!


    That is because you demand too much from others. Do not demand people to help you. :eek4:


    You are in a hurry and demands people to come to you and help you. Sorry, others have better things to do with their time.


    knowledge has different meanings to different persons, It depends on their nature of work.


    For a soul , the real knowledge it gets is by Realising The truth., The truth is Following the paths of Lord krishna, using his advice


    How do one knows which is real knowledge and which is not?


    According to Vedmurty, Taponistha Pt.Shriram Sharma Acharya, the world is not going to end. India has a very bright future. By 2011 India will be leading the entire world just like it did in olden times. If you want you can find out yourself in the book, "Glimpses of Golden Future" at

    Keep dreaming ... :rolleyes:


    It said somewhere that the Faithless and Godless ones always afraid of Judgement. That is why they dreams of continuity of their existence and fears Judgement.


    Here's Scientific FACT for you and others who dreams like you :


    This World HAVE ALREADY SEEN SIX (that's 6 for those who do not know how to read) DOOMSDAY SENARIO where 90% to 70% of life on this Planet was DESTROYED.


    So fact remains - there WILL be Seven. ;)


    yes, we all get what we deserve - like demonic rulers, wars, genocides, even the Jewish Holocaust...


    and do you know WHY we deserve all these things? because we are greedy, self-centered, barbaric, and above all: not caring for the sufferning of others, and not fighting the evil around us. yes, there is MORE COMING, for all evil doers and their supporters.


    wet turd laughing at the dry turd being burned. you people are so predictable, and so much alike.




    They are PARASITES.

    Do you know HOW Parasite lives? It attachs itself onto the body of its victim, slowly drains blood off the victims and lives by mimicking that their are vital parts of the victim. That is Parasite.


    Muslims are parasite on this World.


    US invasion is for the whole good of Middle east!


    No, it is Karma.


    When you live as a predator - killing others and live of their remains like what Muslims did - there always will be other, bigger predators which live off killing you. :rolleyes:


    The craddle of civilization - Iraq, as they call it, actually flourished in 14th to 17th century because of wealth they have stolen from Asia regions (especially trade from South East Asia and loots from India) and the knowledge that they took from this people as well.


    And as you may know, stolen "property" will NEVER stay in hands of the Theives.


    I am Bi-Polar, it takes me two hours to go to sleep and anything can disturb me within that time, I am taking anti-psycotics drug, but it sometime does not always work, I wake up for the past couple of months at about 2 - 4 am with vivid dreams about God, and I remeber the whole dream.

    I feel happy and curious about what they mean and I am seeing things when I am partially awake, almost as if I see parallel worlds.

    Can you help me find a way to sleep properly?


    Trying reading books and play games before going to bed. Tired out yer mind and sleep will come naturally.

  14. http://news./s/ap/20061004/ap_on_re_as/nkorea_nuclear


    Hmph ... When beggers allowed to rule, they can rule with so much blind Ego. :rolleyes:


    Last year, North Korea have launched two missiles which flew over South Korea and Japan and defied international outburst. When the World didn't do anything, God strick them down with natural disasters which crippled the nation for almost 3 to 6 months.


    And you could thought that they could learn their lesson. Obviously, Communist Atheists could do anything but learn their error of their ways. Now, they are back, testing nukes.


    A perfect example how demonic thinkings and leadership could bring chaos and destruction to themselves, same like in the Puranas.


    Sephiroth I appreciate there are good games, also they are even making a game of Krsna's pastimes. There are no doubt many kids that violent intake is water off a ducks back too.

    But I am talking about those that are weak minded and there are games that brainwash kids into doing xtreme nonsense. Unlike reading a book these kids are locked into this world almost 24/7 with endless repeatition. I should know i have one 18 year old who only sufaces from his computer for a little air, to raid the fridge or occasionally help with a project around the house. As a father and well wisher i'm concerned about the effect that has on his thinking, doing and feeling.


    Obviously I'd rather see him doing endless repeatition of the Holy Names


    Repeating the Holy Names just because the father had told the son to do, will not make the son any holier, wiser or more spiritual.


    "Do not stretch the string too hard or it will break; Do not loosen the string too much or it will not play properly. There should be a balance as in everything" - the first lesson Gautama Buddha have learnt which made him stop doing severe tapas which weakened his body. It will be beneficial if you ponder about this. :)


    You are lucky to have a good son. I have seen many youths who goes out to pubs, smoke cigarettes, hand around with the wrong crowd, indulge themselves with sex and such.


    Compare to them, which one do you like? Do you prefer a youth who sits at home, within your own views and help out with household whenever he is asked? OR do you prefer a youth who goes out and do things which you will not be proud of?


    I too like your son - always play games in my room with my Playstation 1 and 2 and my mother always complains about it (my father doesn't bother about it). I asked the same question as above to her, as I ask you.

  16. Only fasting I know described in Gita is "Silent Fast" - fast where the person do not talk during the period of fasting. In Gita, it is said that this practise is the hardest and the most honored one.


    I think even Buddhist Monks does it - sitting for hours, closing their eyes in meditation or doing things without putting useless thoughts into their minds.


    The programing of the illusionary energy thru material technology is becoming very subliminal, it seems to be really fine tuning it's subtle ways of conditioning the thought process of young souls who are curious with this form of entertaining contemplation.

    I can't help but think that this is in preparation for some horrific Armageddon confrontation.

    It's becoming increasingly more difficult to even communicate with younger generations, as they have their own codes of silence and reciprical language that they trust amongst themselves and generally won't share with elders.

    There are many computer programmers from the older generations who have no interest in spiritual life, that design these games, in turn effecting behavioural patterns, desensitizing souls to their own best welfare, glorifying the very activities the sastras condemn. And condeming those activities the saints recommend. Maya has honed it's skills time and again to conceal and confuse access to the Real Truth, returning with a different replay each time.


    I can understand why George Harrison called his last album 'Brainwashed'.


    To understand others, one must first understand oneself. :rolleyes:


    How are you expect the younger generation to communicate with the older generation when you do not communicate properly among yourselves?


    Older generation study for sake of study (don't understand what they are studying also), pray because everyone prays (not with faith), have a lot of materialistic needs, have a lot of desires and understand less about themselves than they do others. How could they expect the younger generation to be any different? :confused:


    And not all games are bad and have no Spiritualism in it. A lot of Asian games (especially from Japanese companies) have good spiritual aspects to it.


    The way I see it, Iskcon simply opened the gate for various forms of Vaishnavism coming to the West. I'm not sure what influence it will have 100 years from now. In some countries it is already a minority Vaishnava organization. Iskcon has lost a lot of steam in the West and is facing major challenges to it's long term survival.


    Correct ... and later, the memory of ISCKON will live on in minds of Westerns as proof that Hindusm failed. Westerners, especially Christians will not bothered about Santana Dharma, but will only remember the lessons and failure of ISCKON.


    And besides, you will never know what will happen in the next 25 years. Maybe ISCKON will successfully implement Christian ways into their teaching, creating a new form of teaching which overshadows Santana Dharma even further. You will never know.


    I think still quality is still more important than quantity. What's the use of having crowd of sheeps? Jesus didn't have a corwd of disciples. But there was quality. One Pure devotee can have so much impact than a thousand ones shouting.


    Hari bol!


    If one thousand idiots scream their lungs out in a crowd, your one "pure devotee" will be "crushed" by their noises. :rolleyes:


    This is Adharmic World - people attend to do stupid things first, then seek forgiveness from others, only to repeat the same mistake over and over again. God for this sort of people are "tools" which they could seek forgiveness from. Anyone who preaches God, Karma and Redemption for the Sins committed, will be swipe aside in place of god who forgives everything.


    Do not be so naive in thinking that people will follow a Pure Devotee to seek redemption and betterment of their lives. People just want to live in the fast lane, enjoy themselves and "wash" away their sins by dumping it onto someone else. That someone usually is a god they fashioned themselves. :rolleyes:
