Truth of Dasavatharams – Review

If you knew the real dasavatharams of Lord Vishnu and their characters you can appreciate the script more. Let me explain, starting with the best adapted role:

1. Krishna avatar – Vincent Poovaraghavan

Lord krishna is actually a dalit, he is dark-skinned [shyamalam]. He saved draupadi when she was being violated and he was the actual diplomat in mahabharatham. Lord krishna dies of an arrow striking his lower leg. Now look at how vincent was introduced.. he appears when asin is about to be molested and he saves her like draupadi. Vincent is the dalit diplomat, fights for land issue [soil issue to be exact] and dies from the metal rod striking his leg. Oh even five of vincent’s men are drugged at P. Vasu’s.. sounds familiar???

2. Balarama avatar – Balarama naidu

This is an easy given. as the name suggests and the role personifies you can easily get it.

3. Mathsya avatar – Ranagaraja nambi

nambi is thrown into water in an act of trying to save lord from being thrown into sea, though vainly. what more clue do you want?

4. Varaha avatar – Krishnaveni paatti

During the mukunda song, krishnaveni paatti does varaha avatar in the shadow puppetry. The frame freezes on it for a second. there is the clue. Moreover, in varaha avatar lord actually hides earth so as to protect life forms. Here too krishnaveni hides the germs – life form inside the statue so as to protect.

5. Vamana avatar – Kalifulla khan

remember in vamana avatar, lord vishnu takes the vishvaroopa, that is the giant form! Hence the giant kalifulla here symbolises vamana avatar.

6. Parasurama avatar – Christian Fletcher

Parasurama is actually on an angry killing spree and killed 21 generations of the particular kshatriya vamsa. Hence the real KILLER… Guess what thats what our Fletcher is! He comes around with the gun [modern upgrade for axe] and kills everyone around. I have to check if he kills 21 people though. 😀

7. Narasimha avatar – Shingen Narahashi

first of all the name itself is a play on the words singam [means lion in tamil] and narasimha [the avatar being symbolised]. Lord Narasimha manifests himelf to kill the bad guy and he also teaches prahaladha. In the movie, he shows up to kill the killer fletcher! and is also a teacher.. Lord Narasimha had to kill the asura with bare hands and hence the martial arts exponent here.. get it?

8. Rama avatar – Avatar Singh

Lord Rama stands for the one man one woman maxim, kind of symbolising true love.. Here Avatar portrays that spirit by saying that he loves his woman more than anything and wants to live for her.

9. Kalki avatar – Govindaraj Ramasamy

As you know, the hero in kaliyug can be none other than the Kalki avatar!!!

10. Koorma avatar – Bush

This is the most loose adaptation I couldn’t clearly comprehend. But if you look at the real koorma avatar, the lord is the turtle/tortoise that helps in stirring the ksheera sagara and bringing out the amruth. This essentially creates war among the devas and asuras. Similarly today Bush facilitates war between you know whom… May be Kamal also indicates that this avatar is a bit dumb like the tortoise…

you see…now u knw what does the movie trying to tell you….a super-duper movie…..kamal rocks…..

YOU KNOW YOU ARE LIVING IN new era when…

1. You accidentally enter your password on the microwave.

2. You haven’t played solitaire with real cards in years.

3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of 3.

4. You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.

5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that

they don’t have e-mail addresses.

6. You pull up in your own driveway and use your mobile phone to see if

anyone is home to help you carry in the groceries.

7. Every commercial on television has a web site at the bottom of the

screen.

8. Leaving the house without your mobile phone, which you didn’t have

The first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for panic and

you turn around to go and get it.

10. You get up in the morning and go on line before getting your

coffee.

11. You start tilting your head sideways to smile.

: )

12. You’re reading this and nodding and laughing.

13. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to forward this

message.

14. You are too busy to notice there was no #9 on this list.

15. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn’t a #9 on this list

Our Karma

Karma means “action” or any
action that
brings a reaction that binds us to the
material world. Although the idea of
karma is generally associated with
Eastern philosophy, many people in the
West are also coming to understand that
karma is a natural principle, like time
or gravity, and no less inescapable.
For
every action there is a reaction. If we
cause pain and suffering to other
living
beings, we must endure pain and
suffering in return, both individually
and collectively.

We reap what we saw, in this life and
the next, for nature has her own
justice. No one can escape the law of
karma, except those who understand how
it works.

To understand how karma can cause war,
for example, let’s take an illustration
from the Vedas. Sometimes a fire is
started in a bamboo forest when the
trees rub together. The real cause of
the fire is not the trees but the wind
that moves them. The trees are only the
instruments. In the same way two
nations
are not the real causes of the friction
that may exist between them, the real
cause is the karma generated by the
world’s supposedly innocent citizens.

According to the law of karma, the
neighborhood supermarket or hamburger
stand has more to do with the threat of
war than anything else does. We recoil
with horror at the prospects of nuclear
war while we permit equally horrifying
massacres every day inside the world’s
automated slaughterhouses.

The person who eats an animal may
say “I
haven’t killed anything” but when
buying
neatly packaged meat at the superstore
you are paying someone else to kill for
you, then both of you bring upon
yourselves the reactions of karma.

Can it be anything but hypocritical to
march for peace and then go to
McDonald’s for a hamburger or go home
to
grill a steak or have ‘Chicken tikka or
chicken biriyani’? This is the very
duplicity that George Bernard Shaw
condemned:

We are living graves of murdered beasts
Slaughtered to satisfy our appetites
We never pause to wonder at our feasts
If animals like men could possibly have
rights.
We pray on Sunday that we may have
light,
To guide our footsteps on the paths we
tread.
We are sick of war; we do not want to
fight,
And we gorge ourselves upon the dead.

Ahimsa allows the animal to live a
natural evolutionary progress. However
if it is killed it will need to return
to live out the rest of its life in
that
same species.

Those who understand the laws of karma
know that peace will not come from
marches and petitions, but rather from
a campaign to educate people about the
consequences of murdering innocent
animals not to mention unborn children.

God is the life giver and only he
decided when to take it back……

Breakfast at McDonald’s

This is a good story and is true, please read it all the way through until the
end! (After the story, there are some very interesting facts!):

I am a mother of three (ages 14, 12, 3) and have recently completed my college
degree.

The last class I had to take was Sociology.

The teacher was absolutely inspiring with the qualities that I wish every
human being had been graced with.

Her last project of the term was called, ‘Smile.’

The class was asked to go out and smile at three people and document their
reactions.

I am a very friendly person and always smile at everyone and say hello anyway.
So, I thought this would be a piece of cake, literally.

Soon after we were assigned the project, my husband, youngest son, and I went
out to McDonald’s one crisp March morning.

It was just our way of sharing special playtime with our son.

We were standing in line, waiting to be served, when all of a sudden everyone
around us began to back away, and then even my husband did.

I did not move an inch… an overwhelming feeling of panic welled up inside of
me as I turned to see why they had moved.

As I turned around I smelled a horrible ‘dirty body’ smell, and there standing
behind me were two poor homeless men.

As I looked down at the short gentleman, close to me, he was ‘smiling.’

His beautiful sky blue eyes were full of God’s Light as he searched for
acceptance.

He said, ‘Good day’ as he counted the few coins he had been clutching.

The second man fumbled with his hands as he stood behind his friend. I
realized the second man was mentally challenged and the blue-eyed gentleman
was his salvation.

I held my tears as I stood there with them.

The young lady at the counter asked him what they wanted.

He said, ‘Coffee is all Miss’ because that was all they could afford. (If they
wanted to sit in the restaurant and warm up, they had to buy something. He
just wanted to be warm).

Then I really felt it – the compulsion was so great I almost reached out and
embraced the little man with the blue eyes. That is when I noticed all eyes in
the restaurant were set on me, judging my every action.

I smiled and Read the rest of this entry »

Drink Hot Water, it safe your life!

Touching Story

One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay,
for his hungry stomach, decided he would ask for a meal at the next
house.

On the way through school, he found he had only one thin dime left
and he was very hungry.

However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the
door.Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water.

The woman thought he looked hungry, so brought him a large glass of
milk.

He drank it slowly, and then asked, ‘How much do I owe you?’ ‘You
don’t owe me anything,’ she replied. ‘Mother has taught us,never to
accept pay for a kindness.’

He said…’Then I thank you from my heart.’

Year’s later that young woman became critically ill.
The local doctors were baffled.They finally sent her to the big
city,where they called in specialists to study her rare disease.

Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation.
When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light
filled his eyes.

Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her
room.Dressed in his doctor’s gown he went in to see her.He
recognized her at once.

He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to
save her life,from that day he gave special attention to the case.

After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested the
business office to pass the final bill to him for approval.

He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge and the bill was
sent to her room.

The woman feared opening it, for she was sure it would take the
rest of her life to pay for it all.

Finally she looked, and something caught her attention on the side
of the bill. She read these words…
‘Paid in full with one glass of milk.’ Signed, Dr.Howard Kelly.

Tears of joy flooded her eyes as her happy heart prayed: Thank You,
God,that Your love has spread abroad through human hearts and
hands.’

True Friends

Sweet things are easy 2 buy,
But sweet people are difficult to find.

Life ends when U stop dreaming,
Hope ends when U stop believing,
Love ends when U stop caring,
Friendship ends when U stop sharing.

To love without condition,
talk without intention,
To give without reason,
And to care without expectation
is the heart of a true friend…

why we celebrate diwali?

Diwali or Deepavali is amongst the
most celebrated Indian festivals. The
word Deepavali originates from two
Sanskrit words ‘Deepa’ which
means ‘light’ and ‘Avali’ which
means ‘a row’. This is why Deepavali
is called ‘the festival of lights’.

It is celebrated on the 15th day of
the Hindu month of Kartik which is a
new moon day (Amavasya). Deepavali is
celebrated by lighting diyas (earthen
lamps), drawing rangolis
(multico loured designs drawn on the
ground with coloured rice flour),
cleaning and decoration of homes,
wearing new clothes, preparation of
sweets in homes, lighting of
fireworks, veneration of cows as
incarnations of Goddess Lakshmi
(Goddess of wealth) and Lakshmi Puja.

There are two main mythological
stor ies that signify the importance of
Deepavali. The first story is that
Deepavali denotes the return of Lord
Rama’s return from exile after his
victorious conquest of the evil king
Ravana. This story has greater
significa nce in Northern India. In
Southern India, Deepavali marks the
victory of Lord Krishna over the
mighty asura (demon) Narakasura.
Narak asura had become a menace to the
gods in heaven and had snatched the
magnificent earrings of Aditi (the
Mother Goddess) and imprisoned sixteen
thousand daughters of the gods in his
harem. In desperation, the gods led by
Indra requested Lord Krishna to
destroy the demon as he was wreaking
havoc. Krishna readily agreed, fought
a fierce battle and emerged
victoriou s. It was after this that He
accepted the sixteen thousand damsels
as his wives at their request.

The meaning behind these mythological
stor ies is that the villain of the
piece represents the desire-ridden
ego . In our lives, it is our egos and
desires that create problems for us.
In the story of Lord Krishna above,
the sixteen thousand damsels represent
our numerous desires. When they are
controlled by our egos, they cause
destruction and rob us of our joy.
However, when we work selflessly,
dedic ating our actions to a higher
goal, the desires remain in check, and
most importantly, get sublimated. Each
one of us has positive and negative
tendenci es. When we identify with the
good in us, work towards something
beyond our selfish interests the
lower, negative tendencies fade away.
Our desires get sublimated and through
constant sadhana (spiritual practice)
we overcome our ego and desires. The
darkness of ego and desire are
banished, replaced by the light of
wisdom. Knowledge that we are not
incomplete and limited as we think
ourselves to be. But that we are that
Divine Self that is free and
independent of all the world has to
offer.

The scented bath by pouring gingerly
oil from your head until your legs and
washing your hair with “shikakai”
powder before the break of dawn and
the cleaning of homes during Deepavali
signify the cleansing of the
personality of desires and ego. The
new clothes represent our newly
acquired state of Realisation or at a
more basic level our new spiritual
orienta tion and commitment to self-
development . This change brings
sweetness in our lives which is why
sweets are made and distributed in the
community. It represents the fact that
once we turn spiritual and begin
looking within, we experience a quiet
sense of peace that we cannot
experience while chasing objects of
the world.

Thus Deepavali or Diwali has a
tremendous spiritual significance in
our lives. And like all our festivals,
they are reminders for us to retain
and cultivate that spiritual element
in our lives. Because life is more
than just a journey, it is a search
for meaning.

Happy Birthday to Sri Ganesh(Pillaiyar)

Sri Ganesh is the first amongst the
Hindu Deities.

God is worshipped as Ganesh in His
first form and name. Among the
five Principal Deities, the name of
Sri Ganesh comes first, then
Vishnu, Shankar (Lord Shiva), Surya
and Durga respectively.

On the 4th tithi of the bright
fortnight in the Hindu month of
Bhadrapad (August-September), this
festival of Ganesh Chaturthi is
observed. The most auspicious time or
Muhurth for the performance of
this celebration is midday, as said by
Brihaspati and quoted in Kala-
niraya. When Chaturthi tithi is mixed
with the third and the fifth
tithis,and if at midday there is
Chaturthi, the one mixed with the
3rd tithi is to be preferred. If at
midday there is no Chaturthi, but
on the next day there is Chaturthi at
midday mixed with Panchmi or
the 5th tithi, then the fifth tithi is
preferred

Method of worship…..
A clay image of Lord Ganesh,
beautifully painted, is brought and
Prana Pratishta (consecration) is
effected and worship is offered to
Lord Ganesh also called Vinayak, with
16 Upcharas or steps of worship
as follows:

Aawaahanam
Aasanam
Paadyam
Arghyam
Aachamaneeyam
Snaanam
Vastram
Yagyopaveetam
Gandham
Akshatam
Pushpam
Dhoopam
Deepam
Naivedhyam
Tamboolam
Dakshanaam and of course Aarte

Twenty-one “Modakas” (a type of sweets
commonly called Ladoo) are
needed in Ganesh Pooja. Five are
offered to Lord Ganesh in the Pooja,
five are offered to Brahmins (people
of the priestly class) and the
remaining eleven are given to the
Yajman (the active participant in
the Pooja or Yajna) to be eaten by
himself or his family.

At sunset, without looking at the
moon, perform Chandrama pooja
(pooja to the moon God) and offer
Aarghya. Daan or charitable gifts
must be given to the main Pandit as
well as any other Pandits or
Sadhus (holy men)that are present
there. Dakshina should also be
offered to the Ganesh Murti. Katha
(discourses) should be read and
Visarjan (final prayer) of Sri Ganesh
Pooja is to be performed.

At the end of the celebration, in a
great procession, the image of
Lord Ganesh is immersed in a well or a
tank, a river or in the sea.
It is important to know that this
immersion can only be done when the
Sun moves from Simha Rasi or the House
of Leo into Kanya Rasi or the
House of Virgo. This illustrates the
importance of Jyotish or Hindu
Astrology.

Thereafter, feed the Brahmins, give
them Dakshina (monetary gifts)
then partake of the Modakas or Prasad.

The authoritative texts to read when
Ganesh Chaturthi Pooja is
performed are :

Mudgal Purana
Ganesh Purana and
Ganesh Bhagwat.
Sri Ganesh worship lasts for one day
and a half, two days, five days,
seven days or ten days which is until
the end of Anant Chaturdasi
(14th tithi of the bright forthnight
of Bhadrapad).
