Re: Bathing after using the toilet

I think I can understand why bathing and a change of clothes after defecating may have been constituted. Even after you clean yourself, using water, some of the water may drip onto the legs, you are still touching your clothes (to tie the drawstrings or buttons) with your hands before you reach a wa...

Re: Significance of celibacy?

Material existence is detachment of God, because God is a nonmaterial soul. If our mind is in matter our mind is not towards God. Playing sports can also take the mind away from the Soul/God, at least for some durations when the mind has to be focussed on the task at hand. Do BKs/PBKs propose banni...

Bathing after using the toilet

Why do BKs/PKs require one to bathe after using the toilet?
Is proper washing of the hands with soap not sufficient?

Do Hindu scriptures also require this practice?
Any other religions?

Re: Significance of celibacy?

Clearly, the following picture is emerging: BK/PBKs insist on celibacy even for monogamous married couples who are not obsessed with sex. Not even for procreation. Established Hindu scriptures (including Gita) and other religions permit procreation based on a general conduct that adheres to "dharma"...

Re: Significance of celibacy?

satyaprakash wrote: All Hindu scripture allow you to enjoy sex and also do procreation provided it is done in a dharma way.
So what is the dharmic way to fulfill a desire?

Re: Need help to understand teachings of PBK

Thanks for all the responses, Arjun.
I have seen the 2 scanned pages of the thesis. You need not look for the links.
But if there are more pages, I'd appreciate the link(s) in that case.

Re: Significance of celibacy?

So if non-fulfillment leads to anger and indulgence leads to loss of focus on the self/God, i.e., damned if you do and damned if you don't, what recourse does one avail?

Re: Need help to understand teachings of PBK

Arjun, Would Virendra Dev Dixit's thesis submitted for PhD be available online? I am sure it would be fascinating to read how Virendra Dev Dixit's thoughts evolved about the yogya and Knowledge, and how he derived his conclusions as he studied the Murlis, Vanis, anecdotal information that he was pro...

Re: Need help to understand teachings of PBK

Arjun Bhai, Are the original, unedited, unmodified Sakar Murlis, as they were spoken by Shiva Baba through DL, available online? If so, where would they be? I have seen one or two here and there, but I am wondering if there are more. (Of course I see the snippets you post of the Murlis and Vanis con...

Re: Need help to understand teachings of PBK

So if DL still has soft motherly attachment to BKs - would that mean he has not gotten rid of that vice? Is he not 16-celestial-virtues complete yet?
Is that why he is still studying in Virendra Dev Dixit's body?
Will Virendra Dev Dixit's soul in the end be more complete than DL's?

Thanks,
T.K

Re: Significance of celibacy?

The English translation of the Gita quote seems to imply that "..attraction between male and female.." leads to attachment, greed and ego. Further, it appears BK suggest it leads to anger. So in some sense, the contention is that sex leads to what are are traditionally considered to be vices. How do...

Significance of celibacy?

I am trying to assess why is celibacy a prerequisite to experiencing communion with God as per BKs, PBKs, and in fact, even other religious institutions inside and outside India, Indian hatha-yogis, etc. Mahatma Gandhi is also said to have practiced celibacy to become a yogi. At the same time modern...

Re: Need help to understand teachings of PBK

But, Arjun Bhai, Would not deliberate misleading, that too for so long, reduce DL's purity and knock him off the #1 Golden-age soul position? Also, When Shiva Baba used to speak through DL, he would from time to time remind listeners that he was separate from DL. Does Shiva Baba do the same when he ...

Re: Need help to understand teachings of PBK

So, Brother Arjun, What is the deep drama mystery about DL letting the masses believe for the last 40 years that it is Shiva Baba+DL who enters Dadi Gulzar when in fact it is DL alone? Is it to test the BKs so that only those who can truly understand the mystery can become full-cast Brahmins? Thanks...
