Re: The Global Hospital Village Outreach Program

If that is true, then it is really commendable in view of the fact that she did not get active support from some of the BK Seniors. I can corroborate that her initiative was the driving force, and wider acceptance by the BK Seniors did not come till later. A great example of a mature, adult BK maki...

Re: What is so wonderful abouth the Murli?

Whether a person writes a chart or not they are worthy. This is not Gyan and it is not srimat, it is survival! You are right, and I amplify that the effects on a child, told that she is not worthy, are devastating. I know several people sharing this devastation at the hands of the Catholic Church. ...

Re: What is so wonderful abouth the Murli.

There can be a definite magic in hearing the Murli. It is one thing to logically dissect analyse etc, it is quite another to take ones mind to the time and place where it is spoken. I personally preferred the Sakar Murlis. I would imagine Brahma Baba sitting on his Guddhi, Shiva Baba inside his for...

Re: I have problem of excessive sexual urges ...!!!

I am sorry to bother you all with my problem ... No problem at all. I think it's an act of courage to bring up this issue publicly. I am not sure what you mean by saying "excessive". Excess, is after all, just another way of saying "abundant." I will go on record as saying the feelings of sexual ur...

Re: Is this the end?

The worst part of this for me is thinking that I did not really meet God after all, I remember feeling so relieved that my search had ended and now I am anxious again x100! Was it God or not? I really don't know, so I guess not?! I, too, sympathize with difficulty of this transition in your life. A...

Re: Reincarnation

Aiming for perfection usually assumes comparison against some standard of judgment. You can only start with where you are and what you are right now . For some people the idea of a longer existence may be comforting. When I am gone, there may be but a trail of bubbles left in the swirling waters of ...

Excuse me but either the link is surely broken or one needs to be a member to see the interview. Joel ... care to share a username and password?

Re: Celibacy - is it necessary for spirituality?

No, it is not. Dhow me the evidence that celibacy helps with spirituality. Latest evidence is that autoorgasmic behavior in men correlates with lower incidence of prostate cancer. In that case I am an evolutionary tactic. Here it is: cancer-causing chemicals could build up in the prostate if men do...

Re: Celibacy - is it necessary for spirituality?

Counterexamples As above, the question is incomplete, lacking an actor, a subject. Who are we talking about? Does a rock, for example, find that celibacy is a needed support. Are you talking about everyone. Are you speaking about me specifically? No many other brothers and sisters have experienced ...

Re: children take birth through the power of Yoga

Jann, Last year I visited the Asian Art Museum in Seattle. From India were huge marbles, dominated each by a central couple, man and woman, the woman smaller, supported partly on his lap. The tenderness of the embrace. The Etruscan tombs (Etruscan Museum, Rome, Boston Museum for examples) have sarco...

Re: children take birth through the power of Yoga

"People say that if we become pure, then how would children be born without sex-lust? Tell them – we are establishing our kingdom not through physical power, but through the power of Yoga. So can’t children take birth through the power of Yoga!"... Tell me how this technique is to be done??? And ca...
