Apart from the sex lust and illusionary perfection of romantic involvement, I think that most movies can be seen on a metaphorical level [ e.g. good versus evil ] or even psychological level [ e.g. different parts / sanskars playing off one another. I don't necessarily think most movie viewers can see them in that light though! Most just switch off their intellects [Buddhis], allow their mind [Man] to be sucked into them and be programmed by whatever the agenda of the producers is.Aimée wrote:For example programmes on origins of religion, or mythology ... Baba (in Virendra Dev Dixit) says that the films allowed are the Mahabharat, Ramayan etc. All that will give us help in understanding the religious background, the scriptures, the stories that are mentioned in the Murlis, and because the Mahabharat and Ramayan, it is in fact our story.
My comment and question to the PBKs is that this is of course a very Bharatwasi point of view. Is God a Bharatwasi? Do the Western mythologies not count nor have any meaning to those of us that are in the West, e.g. Greek, Nordic, Celtic myths - even elements of Christianity? Is Shiv through Dada Lekhraj was highly limited because those questioning him were of a very limit background and culture and even Dada Lehkraj was caught in his own bygone age. How does Shiv through Virendra Dev Dixit differ?
Its a very bitter pill for us to swallow that all of Western culture is of no value in comparison the funfair freakshow of Hinduism or Bollywood. Remember, it was Lekhraj's taste to go see cheap commercial Bollywood, not ours! The BKWSU was originally very dismissive of the arts and culture. It took quite a rigid pro-Hindu and very unevolved view about what was right and what was wrong. This was obviously a BK Senior Sister issue and not a Godly one. The sisters were only human and not culturally educated. The Sindi community that they largley came from has been quite widely ciriticised for its debased values.
I wonder if Shiv has expressed his own views on the West, Westerners and Western Culture both modern and ancient?
Is there any chance that we will see him out of India, relating to non-Hindus and non-Bharatwasis, analysing and responding to other cultures and civilisations - or is he strictly a Hindu God?
