  1. Thank You I will call more on you if I have more questions about this deity.
  2. So Karttikeya is the son of Shiva and is also called Lord Murugan? Is Karttikeya also Kali as well?
  3. You are trying to use the limited human mind to understand the higher divinity. Yours as well as my perception is not perfect. Therefore how can a human being with a limited mind understand everything about divinity? The divinity who is the closest thing to perfection.
  4. Where do you live? Here in America they are not supposed to have religion and education together. Keep chatting here and you will learn alot about Hinduism.
  5. The Communist Chinese block many things. I will have to search for other Indian philosophers as well.
  6. Is witchcraft considered evil in India? Or is it just a bunch who is extemely superstitious in a bad way? I hope you don't mind my curiosity.
  7. Why is the Shiva Gita not accepted?
  8. I live in United States central time. Does that information help? Shivaratri,Holikatsava,Kama Dahana,Kartik Purnima are the only festivals I am interested in about dates.
  9. I see. This makes sense to me now. My next question would be what is the true meaning of Parvati as Shiva's wife? I know you went into it briefly ,could you explain a bit more to me? I would very much appreciate it.
  10. I wish to attain the abode to serve Shiva.
  11. Where are these temples located? Are there any priests in these temples? I see death as a symbolic form in this life. I see Yama as the act of our transcending that is why I asked about Yama.
  12. So Karttikeya is Kumara the son of Shiva? Could you tell me more.
  13. Indeed this is true. True wisdom has to be earned through vigourous amounts of time and studying. Not to mention alot of soul searching as well. There appears to be a flawed movement in the world today that says if you throw money and wealth at a problem things will get better. This can definately not be the truth. Infact it is the opposite thing from the truth.
  14. All the spiritual writings of man are inspirations of the divine to find the divine in ourselves. To find find inspiration or meaning in life. To find that center and balance of ourselves that we all desire to have. To find divine wisdom in the Gods. You are asking a question that can not be answered. You are asking of divine proof , but why does the divine need to proove itself? Why does the divine need to prove itself to me or to you?
  15. The Gods exist without the books of men. Men can see the Gods and their acts everyday if they look hard enough without reading a word. And a man can feel the divine through his heart without even knowing a guru. The first time I felt the divinity it was by myself secluded in nature with a gentle breeze of wind upon my face. The words of wisdom of the vedas and gitas are great. They are the great teachings of us all. We should revere them. We must remember though that the power of the Gods by themselves is more wiser.
  16. Regardless of their different beliefs they are all under the influence of the main teachings of the bible which all of them follow. All denominations say that non-believers goes to hell and the true believers of Christ are the only select few who shall see heaven. This means if you are Christian you will see heaven if you follow the layed out teachings. If you are not Christian then you go to their Christian hell. Who is the non-believer you may ask? It is the whole world that is not Christian and that includes peaceful Hindus. Why do people here not see that this religion has no tolerance in it at all. It is a religion of assimilation and destruction of any other opposition in it's wake. In the bible their God said, " I have not brought peace but a only a sword." So many great cultures in Europe and all around the world have fell prey to this religion and it's intolerance. The ancient Greeks,Romans,Germanic,Celtic,ancient Egypt and so on fell to these beliefs. These great cultures were great like the Hindu culture. Hinduism must resist Christianity. Hinduism at best should ignore Christians and leave Christians to themselves to their own delusions. I don't want people to take that badly. I am sure there are some nice virtuous individuals who are great people that are Christian. My father is one. However , even though they may be nice people it does not change anything in the part of the religion they worship.
  17. I like the infinite theory better. The big bang lacks many things. What caused the big bang? Where did it come from? If it was a mistake or accident what sparked the incident? What form of existence was before the big bang? Was it a state of nothingness or pure energy? This is my belief: There is no beginning and there is no ending of the universe. It has always been. Science says our galaxy was created by many large factors of the cosmic spectrum. Scientists must realize that time is useless in the scope of the universe. Time is man made. The universe is not run on time my friend. The universe is a cycle or circle if you will in all it's existence.
  18. Thank You for this wise post. So evil is the nature of ignorance inherited in human beings? We cause our own evil? Am I right? I know Hinduism is non-dualist but I must ask a question: Is there a deity which proceeds this ignorance that leads to evil?
  19. What causes evil in the Hindu perspective? Why is there evil this world? What causes people to be evil in this world? Is evil a force?
  20. Thank You very much! This really makes my day good.
  21. Is it ok to worship the God Yama the Lord of Death? I have also heard he is a God of justice as well. Is there temples to the God Yama? Is there sects who worship Yama?
  22. Is he just the God of war who defends the Gods or does he defend the followers of the Gods as well?
