  1. LOL Now it's reared it's head. Along with it's twin brother, hypocrisy.
  2. Thanks Indulekha Dasi The pain did go away. I was quite shocked that the Lord was merciful enough to hear my silly little prayer! Jaya Dhanvantari!
  3. I really like these ones (1)<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:" /><o:p></o:p> ālī! mhāne lāge vṛndāvana nīko<o:p></o:p> ghara ghara tulasī, ṭhākura pūjā, darśana govindajī ko<o:p></o:p> ālī! mhāne lāge vṛndāvana nīko<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> (2)<o:p></o:p> nirmala nīra bahata yamunā ko, bhojana dūdha dahī ko<o:p></o:p> ālī! mhāne lāge vṛndāvana nīko<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> (3)<o:p></o:p> ratna siḿhāsana āpa virāje, mukuṭa dharyo tulāsi ko<o:p></o:p> ālī! mhāne lāge vṛndāvana nīko<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> (4)<o:p></o:p> kuñjana kuñjana phirata rādhikā, śabda sunata muralī ko,<o:p></o:p> ālī! mhāne lāge vṛndāvana nīko<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> (5)<o:p></o:p> mīrā ke prabhu giridhara-nāgara, bhajana vinā <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:City><st1:place>nara</st1:place></st1:City> phīko<o:p></o:p> ālī! mhāne lāge vṛndāvana nīko<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> TRANSLATION<o:p></o:p> 1) O friend! I like Vṛndāvana so much, where in every home there is worship of tulasī and the Deity with darśana of Govindajī.<o:p></o:p> <o:p></o:p> 2) Where the pure waters of the Yamunā flow and where the foodstuffs are milk and yoghurt. O friend! I like Vṛndāvana so much.<o:p></o:p> <o:p></o:p> 3) Where the Deity sits on a jewelled throne, with tulāsi in His crown. O friend! I like Vṛndāvana very much.<o:p></o:p> <o:p></o:p> 4) Where Rādhikā roams from kuñja to kuñja, having heard the vibration of His flute. O friend! I like Vṛndāvana so much.<o:p></o:p> <o:p></o:p> 5) The hero Giridhārī is the master of Mīrā, who says that without bhajana a person is dull. O friend!

Now, my consciousness is absorbed into the Divine vibration of the Names of my Hari! I surrender myself to His Holy Name! The entire world addresses Him as the 'Butter Thief'. But now, He has earned another popular Name for Himself, as 'Vairaagi'- the dispassionate wandering monk! (Sanyasi) <o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> 2) O my dearest Mohan ( Enchanter, <st1:place>Krishna</st1:place>)! Why have You discarded Your intimate companion, (Priya-Sakhi)- the Divine Flute? And why have You renounced all Your eternal Sweethearts, Gopis? You appear now with shaven head and ochre cloth at Your waist! But this clever Gopi uncovers Your disguise and doesn't care to conceal it!<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> 3) Now it seems like Mother Yasoda has tied up the both arms of Butter Thief! Alas, no more mischievous tricks! My Dark Beloved has now reappeared as the newly fresh Golden Lord Whose blessed Name is 'Caitanya'!<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> 4) Though clad Himself in skimpy rags, His Pitambara (Yellow Divine Attire) as well as His inner most Divine Love Sentiments are revealed to me. Now Mirabai is the maid-servant of the Golden Krishna Caitanya, whether the Glory of My Krishna is recognized by all or not! (I never knew Mira Bai was devoted to Lord Chaitanya before!) </o:p>
  4. Thanks so much Indulekha Ji I'll be sure to take a look at it!
  5. I really appreciate that you make postings describing Divine Personalities, but I often have trouble seeing how they work into these conversations.
  6. I was talking about this the other day with my Catholic mom. I think that part of the reason why they blow off big things (like abortion, etc...) is because Catholicism makes such a big deal out of the little things (like saying that missing a day of Mass is the same kind of 'sin' as ripping an unborn child from the womb and killing it).
  7. Totally agreed. The Lord isn't at fault at all for what pseudo-religious people do while proclaiming Him.
  8. What are you even talking about?! I've never made fun of the Bhagavata Purana. I believe in it. It'd be pretty silly for me to make fun of it.
  9. What do you mean by 'that you can hardly deny'? We don't know who wrote it and when. It could've been written by anyone. We don't know if it was a direct disciple of Jesus or not. Once again, I don't really care if he was Vaishnava or not. I like his teachings. They're interesting and teach good morals. I don't see any problem with me following his teachings and being a worshipper of Sri Sri Radha-Krishna.
  10. LOL... well at least I'm not ridiculously uptight about what teachers people can and can't admire.
  11. I had a horrible pain in my neck the other day and prayed to Sri Dhanvantari. I prayed the mantra, "Vande Dhanvantarim Vishnum Ayur Veda Pravartakam Piyusa Purna Kalasam Smrita Matrarti Nasanam." When my neck didn't feel better I playfully asked Him, "Lord, why does my neck still hurt! :P" Just then, my neck popped with a loud cracking noise! Concidence? IDK... maybe?
  12. I agree with Mahak's views about the current pope. I don't really like him much either. But, I did enjoy reading about the interfaith relations conference. Thanks for sharing it with us Suchandra
  13. Hasn't the same thing been done by Hindu brahmans in India?
  14. You know, I totally agree. I should definitely start mocking every religion I don't happen to agree with and put their religious figures on the same level as cartoon characters on a regular basis. That's the much more Vaishnava thing to do than to just state my opinion in an adult manner without purposely offending others.
  15. What about people falling outside of the varna system? LOL, I guess I'd be far below a shudra if you're a shudra, Indulekha Ji!
  16. You do know that the Gospel of Phillip hardly includes any of Jesus' words, right? It's the writings of an early Gnostic. Maybe that's because both Jesus and Buddha received their wisdom from a common source.
  17. Oh yes, it's so sad that there are open-minded Vaishnavas who are willing to accept others and their beliefs and not constanty ridicule them by putting their religious figures on the same level as cartoon characters.
  18. Congrats on finishing your temple! It's beautiful and She's beautiful! She looks like a new bride in Her beautiful sari! Thanks so much for sharing
  19. That's exactly what I thought when I first heard it. I kind of liked the idea though. But, if Krishna will liberate them in the form of Kalki, then I really see no problem (since God is, ultimately, the one who decides when our spirits will leave our bodies anyway).
  20. IDK if you're a Gaudiya Vaishnava or not, but I believe I've *heard* that Kalki isn't coming to the earth in our current world cycle because Krishna already came in our Kali Yuga as Lord Chaitanya. I'm not sure how true it is, but I sure hope that's the case for the future generations! I can see what you mean though... I have much trouble understanding the Lord's avatar as Parashuram, myself.
  21. LOL... they should start making bumper stickers, "Kalki is coming... are you ready?" And everyone around your car would just be going "Who's Kalki:confused:"
  22. I believe in Krishna. I also believe in Jesus. I don't see why I have to give up belief in one to believe in the other. They can both be proven to the same extent (which is slim-to-none). That's all I was saying. I don't claim Jesus to be a Vaishnava. I don't really care if he was or wasn't. I like his message. It's a good message.
  23. Krishna's existence hasn't been proven. Rama's existence hasn't been proven. Shiva's existence hasn't been proven. That there's even a Creator of our universe hasn't been proven! So, going by your argument, I guess we shouldn't talk about anything to do with the spiritual world or God, since none of it can be proven.
