  1. My newest post did not show up so am testing here. Kindly ignore
  2. Just wanted to say "thanks" too. Glad the forums back! YS, Prtha dd
  3. Malwarebytes is about maleware and will not do anything for viruses. AVG is about viruses and will not do anything for maleware. Slow or not, both are needed. I'd rather have a slow comp than problems. Besides, its really not all that slow, at least not on mine and my comp itself is rather slow. Anyway, be safe. And good luck. YS, Prtha devi dasi
  4. Ok, thanks for letting me test here, I got a pic put back. Just not sure why the one I had was removed. Probably message board upgrades. Next time, can someone send me an email?
  5. Not sure why the pic I had was deleted but anyhow its ok, I just added a new one. But when looking at old posts, it did not show (tho it should have). So am trying a new post.
  6. O ye of little faith. sigh. Even if by chance there is some (material) evidence that man walked on the moon, isn't it interesting one is viewed as blinded by faith, rather than having genuine faith. After all, science is proving and disproving itself regularly. In any case, I once read a post here explaining that there are "shadow" planets which are rock, etc. If anything was walked on, it was that, not the heavenly planet known as the moon.
  7. Oh, there is so much I could say here my head is spinning, yet not. The fact is, we are 'not' trying to follow 'their' traditional Hinduism, but Prabhupada's transcendental teachings. If Prabhupada said we can have Ratha Yatra on different dates (which he did), so we do like that. To burn an effigy of him is ridiculous, won't change our minds in the least (therefore making it more ridiculous), as well as a white elephant offense. Of course it would be great if there was a way to wake them up so they won't make such an offene, but I can't think of any. And as one poster mentioned, they are jealous.
  8. Coconut oil helps some with hypothyroidism, not all. Iodine only helps those who have an iodine deficiency (which is rare these days) and not those who have Hashimoto's or Autoimmune Hypothyroidism. This is where the body is attacking and killing off the thyroid little by little. One of the first and most important things to do is "stop" the antibodies from attacking the thyroid. I own and run an egroup, as it was very hard to find a vegetarian one, so many doctors and some patients said, 'now you must eat meat.' Hogwash! Anyway, that's why I started a group. For those in need of further info on "autoimmune" type of thyroid disease only, check out: http://health.HypothyroidVegetarians Check it out and see if its a good fit for you as an individual. Jai Prabhupada! The body may get sick, but he has saved our souls.
  9. Thank you for getting toys to these children! Its great to help them be kids, as it only happens once in a persons life. When I first read this post/newsletter, in my mind I thought "Some devotee is going to say this is maya." Well, it didn't happen quite that way, and I also realize it has been explained. It just is something I've heard for so long, and now a grandmother, if anyone were to try to take toys away from my grandchildren & tell them to get to work, well they'd have me to deal with. haha I do tho, see a question in it all, about how it can 'also' be fun to play with stones, leaves, sticks, use the imagination. Its why I "also" made sure my kids had some of that while growing up. But they had toys from the store too. And labor? Kids should not be overworked. That's why in America there are always against it, cuz its wrong. But should they never do chores? It builds character to help out around the house, plus they feel they are included. Now, the children you have given toys and fun to are not simply helping out around the house, they are impoverished, probably the family is forced to somewhat depend on the income the child brings in, etc. Extremes. IMHO its about balance. Living in luxuary as we are in the west (even during times of recession we have more than these kids and their parents!), is also not balanced. There often are kids with too many toys and don't apprecaite them. But as somene who likes Dr Phil I'd have to say "Who bought them too many toys? They can't buy them for themselves, unless the parent helps or lets them do that too." Anyway, my point is, balance. We have too much, which in turn may cause someone to think what these kids are living is a healthy lifestyle of nature and responsibiltiy or not getting spoiled; whereas they have too little and need some play time, "things" cuz those who grow up with no things can lead depressed adult lives, or actually become materialistic! You did a great thing by giving them toys, it will help them to remember Krishna is kind, so in trun they will be more and more drawn to Him, instead of bitter cuz they did not have a childhood, like so many of our own Gurukulis. Thank you! [Afterthought: Maybe some in the west with too many toys can send them to the children who need them. Volantarily of course.]
  10. I've heard this before but thought it was over. Not saying this is your belief, simply in general: I find it starting that some believe Prabhupada was unaware of what he was signing. Just cuz he spoke his letter to his secretary who next typed it up, Prabhupada read and signed it. One example is his Will (not trying to get into that tho, just making a point.) He had given specific dictation, which the devotee did not approve of, so he changed it. Then he brought the Will back for Prabhupada's signature, but Prabhupada would not sign it. No, we can not think Prabhupada was covered over as we might be. He surely knew everything he signed. Everything. We should not doubt his awareness. .... Just my two cents.
  11. Good point. I just love incense so much, with candles running a close second, guess I don't understand why someone would not understand. Simultaneously am glad folks ask instead of assume. In any case, all kinds of things in this age of kali cause cancer. Those would be my first priorities to try to remove from my life. Incense? Yum, I can smell it just typing the word! Sandalwood and Frankincense. So inspirational!
  12. Too much smoke inhalation causes cancer, poor quality incense may also cause cancer (so spend a few more bucks and buy the good stuf ha), burning candles or incense in an enclosed environment may contribute to cancer, etc. Long ago in the forest or even temple but also in a open area, this was not such a concern. These days, open the windows when necessary! Additionally, since essential oils heal, and (quality) incense is made from flowers, herbs, etc., than it too would be healing when used properly.
  13. With all due respect, and I sincerely mean that, this does not sound like a ghost but a medical condition. Please go to a doctor and find out.
  14. Yes, this thread is still active! Thank you. And the more you post, the easier it is to access. However, if you prefer the myspace link, please put it here. You gave me permssion some time back (in previous posts) to use your stuff in my newsletter, and I have been! People love it! So please either keep posting here or kindly share the myspace link. Thank you for your service.
  15. Gotta say, I agree with raga. My husand and I both knew Amala Bhakta when we lived in L.A. (long time ago) and he worked very hard on these tapes, had bills to pay like anyone else, only to have countless devotees make copies with few actually purchasing his cassettes. Personally, I understand those who are really poor doing that, but these days more and more devotees have a few bucks to spare.
