Re: Victims of Communism

Here is a post that makes me think of the problems of a “communist” “government” and what kind of things take place, but all the while the hope of being a Buddhist and overcoming the obstacles in the Saha world, and persevering till the end. Much like Paul of Tarsus in the New Testament. This accoun...

Re: Sharing experiences after understanding 'On Your Way Home'

I liked the book and I think you have a good understanding of what you were writing and the purpose behind it. I think that what helped me when I read it was understanding your perspective, and meditating on your compassion for others in it’s intent I feel like you have a great determination to help...

Re: The Real Guru

Śrīla Prabhupāda: Yes. So many questions are there, but they are not answered by modern education. “Why have I come here? What is the purpose?” These questions should be answered perfectly. Therefore the Vedas enjoin: tad-vijñānārthaṁ sa gurum evābhigacchet. To find answers to all these questions, ...

Re: Quotes on Awareness\Mindfulness...

Peace is complete awareness. In this state of awareness, we cultivate and combine compassion and wisdom. In this state of awareness, we are alive, awake, we take responsibility for our actions. In this state, we are not driven by emotion, we control our emotions and actions. In this state, we are p...

Re: The Vedic Perspective On The Nature of the Soul.

The philosophy that Rama must not be worshipped in physical form is not what Sikhism is about. They are simply mentioning the great All-Pervading fluency of His Omnipotence, that Transcends the physical body. That is the type of God that is worshipped in the Sikh Religion. But He also came in the Fl...

Re: The Vedic Perspective On The Nature of the Soul.

Sikhs consider Krishna to be God though, from what I’ve read in the Guru Granth Sahib Ji. I’m a Khalsa Sikh myself. The Sikhs consider Krishna to be a prophet at the most. At times they use the names of Rama and Krishna to address the incorporeal God. Same as they do with the terms Allah and Wahegu...
