Imagine if every islamic and christian fundamentalist took literally what the BGV said. And practiced it in their lives and how they think and treat each other. The world would be a better place.

No matter how many times I read the BGV I always discover skmething new and valuable.

This particular politician was noted by rachel maddow and others as some one who has a bright future in the democrat party.

I do love Mazie as a person. She came to the swap meet a few years ago and bought a hand made necklace that i made. She also sent me a hand written thank you note on a hand made card her mother made. in Hawaii we call this type of gesture "aloha". aloha is pure kind hearted actions towards one another, a type of giving from the heart. we in Hawaii still have this special way of living and recognize it in others.

I'm glad you're still free to practice any religion you wish, just remember:

"Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

John 14:6
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 26075182


Also just remember:

"When goodness grows weak,
When evil increases,
I make myself a body.
In every age I come back
To deliver the holy,
To destroy the sin of the sinner,
To establish righteousness."
Bhagavad Gita

Considering that millions of "Christians" would deny an abortion to a nine year old girl who had been raped and impregnated by her mentally retarded, AIDS afflicted father I find a Hindu congresswoman to be a breath of fresh air.

Hinduism is all about caste system and other primitive beliefs. You westerners have no clue. Spend time reading Hindu scripture once.

"One day when the sage Atri was performing asceticism with his wife Anasuya, Brahma, Visnu and Siva came to him and offered him a boon. When Atri continued to meditate, the three gods went to Anasuya; Siva had his linga in his hand, Visnu was full of erotic feeling, and Brahma, beside himself with desire, said, 'Make love to me or I will die.' When she heard this coarse speech,Anasuya made no reply, for, although she feared the anger of the gods, she was true to her husband. But the three gods were overcome by delusion, and they raped her by force. Then she became angry, and she cursed Siva to be worshipped as a linga, Brahma to be worshipped as a head, and Visnu to be worshipped as feet, in order to ridicule them all, and she cursed them all to be reborn as her sons. Because of this, Siva was born as urvasas." --

thats so beautifull a custom . You need more of that in the political system.
Hawaii is like heaven on earth . It has magic energies all around it . I guess thats why the demons are trying to disturb it with the chemtrails now .

Tulasi beliefs are good ones , but I do have a hard time understanding why their young ones like Gabby joined the military and went abroad to illegal wars .
In the Hindu or especially Vaisnava codes , one should never engage with a lessor opponenet who is not equal in strength with you in a battle .
One should never hide from battle in computer rooms manning the drone sticks , killing .

These actions are abhorant to true Vedic warrior principles.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 26075182


And the Christ never went anywhere else? It only appeared as Jesus, and only once? It never appeared, say, as Rama or Krishna, or Buddha?

Reminds me of the story of a guy who died and went to heaven, and Saint Peter is showing him around. They go down a long hallway, and Saint Peter opens a door and there are a whole bunch of people in the room partying, and he says "there's the Hindus." Next door, same thing - "there's the Buddhists." Next door, Saint Peter cautions the man - "be quiet and tiptoe past this door." The man asks why, and Saint Peter replies, "because behind that door is the CHristians, and they think they're the only ones here."

Last night, Hawaii not only elected Japan-born Mazie Hirono to be the first ever Asian-American woman elected to the Senate, they also elected Democrat Tulsi Gabbard as the first ever practicing Hindu to the US House of Representatives. Hawaii has been declared a Fox News Disaster Zone.

Thirty-one-year-old Gabbard is the daughter of two conservative Hawaii politicians and first ran for office at age 21. After her first term, she voluntarily served on a 12-month tour of duty with Hawaii's National Guard, and then became the first woman in the history of the Accelerated Officer Candidate School at the Alabama Military Academy to be designated a "distinguished honor graduate."

When she's sworn in this January, she'll take her oath of office over a Bhagavad Gita, a sacred text for followers of the Vaishnava branch of Hindu. According to HuffPo, Gabbard's favorite verses include,

— "That which pervades the entire body you should know to be indestructible. No one is able to destroy that imperishable soul." (2:17)
— "The soul can never be cut into pieces by any weapon, nor can he be burned by fire, nor moistened by water, nor withered by the wind."(2.23)

here's a slight correction to those verses> their aint no soul..we are all the same spirit within that will follow different concepts instead of seeing each other as the same spirit within and following the spirit within...if the verse leads away from the spirit,it has to be corrected to lead to our spirit...if the verse leads inward to our spirit then it doesn't need correcting except to say their is no soul...we are all the shared spirit within as a co-creator spirit of oneness...they aint no gods,goddesses,saviors,prophets devils ,angels,holier than anyone else or wickeder than any one else, except of the flesh...our spirit is equal in every ark it dwells in but many forget that and follow concepts that lead away from our shared spirit that created the concepts of religions...

" MIKE AND TULSI GABBARD " ARE NOT CATHOLICS NOR HINDUS ! THEY ARE MEMBERS OF SINISTER CULT !!

[link to www.chrisbutlerspeaks.com]

[link to en.wikipedia.org]
A prominent disciple of Prabhupada (Chris Butler, or Siddhaswarupananda (Siddha Swarupa Ananda) Goswami, later on as Siddhaswarupananda Paramahamsa, of Science of Identity Institute) who had following in the yoga training prior to joining would not accept existing leadership and would face a conflict with the GBC management structure. He had his own movement after the split in 1975. He maintained the leadership over the disenchanted ISKCON members in Hawaii even as they formed their own political party. With the departure, the tension between Siddha Svarupa and ISKCON devotees increased, although Siddhaswarupa maintained a cordial relationship with Prabhupada. After the disappearance of Prabhupada (his Gurudev) from this world in 1977, he took the role of diksha (initiating) guru and began to initiate disciples.[29] [30]Since 1977 Siddhaswarupa does not accept that the eleven devotees whom Prabhupada appointed were gurus or acharyas. Having accepted the tile of Jagad Guru (World Master), he sees himself in this lineage of pure but non-appointed devotees.[31][32]
