My fingernails look strange. I've just removed a significant amount of very red nail polish from them but they're still blushing.

Hindus attach paramount importance to spiritual gurus. Gurus are often equated with God and always regarded as a link between the individual and the Immortal. Just as the moon shines by reflecting the light of the sun, and glorifies it, all disciples can dazzle like the moon by gaining from their Gurus.
What is Guru Purnima?
The full moon day in the Hindu month of Ashad (July-August) is observed as the auspicious day of Guru Purnima, a day sacred to the memory of the great sage Vyasa. All Hindus are indebted to this ancient saint who edited the four Vedas, wrote the 18 Puranas, the Mahabharata and the Srimad Bhagavata. Vyasa even taught Dattatreya, who is regarded as the Guru of Gurus.

The period 'Chaturmas' ("four months") begins from this day. In the past, wandering spiritual masters and their disciples used to settle down at a place to study and discourse on the Brahma Sutras composed by Vyasa, and engage themselves in Vedantic discussions.

Then Tane found a wife, but he was so unskilled that he had difficulty begetting children… Then he tried using his wife’s eyes, which made her weep; then her nostrils, which made her produce mucus; then her mouth, which made her produce saliva; than her ears, and all he got was wax; then her armpits, which produced sweat.

Finally, he found the right opening and begat a daughter, Hine ahu one, whom he immediately claimed as his wife. Then he begat Hine ahua rangi, whom he also took as his wife.

When the latter asked who her father was, Tane said that it was he and she rushed away in terror. He set out to look for her, discovered her hiding place, and asked her to return. She refused, however, and became the goddess of death.

mo is posting
something that popped into her head when
she read Marcus's
most recent quotation debate entry
however
it was written by a woman
who claims it is a tranlslation

she attributes it to a
woman saint from India
mo will delete it because
she is not sure this is the truth :)

i mean either you are original are you aren't,
either you are a saint or you aren't,
woman saints aren't mean
i think the woman made it up
so therefore she is not a saint ??

pm me for soucre if you want

news story from four months ago ::


Buddhist statue planned in Tulsa
AP, March 9, 2009
TULSA, Okla. (USA) -- The Tam-Bao Buddhist Temple plans to build a 49-foot-tall granite statue of the Buddhist goddess Quan Am.
<< An altar at the Tam Bao Buddhist Temple in Tulsa

The statue would stand on an 8-foot foundation, bringing its overall size to 57 feet, or about 3 feet shorter than the landmark praying hands statue at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa.

On March 24, the city's Board of Adjustment is to consider the final paperwork to allow the project to move forward on the grounds of the temple.

"It is our wish to have the statue put on the land, not only to benefit the Buddhist members but to attract more Americans who are interested in Buddhism, and it will beautify the city as well," said temple member Xuan Pham.

"It is our long-term goal for the next five years, we will probably build a bigger temple, so this will go better with a new temple."

Quan Am is the Bodhisattva of Compassion.

"She is the embodiment of loving kindness," Venerable Abbot Thich Duc Tri of Tam-Bao Buddhist Temple said. "The compassionate love of Quan Am Bodhisattva gives human beings more strength to eliminate suffering, to live with understanding and love to benefit ourselves and others."

Story

A man and his wife had the good fortune to possess a goose which laid a golden egg every day. Lucky though they were, they soon began to think they were not getting rich fast enough, and, imagining the bird must be made of gold inside, they decided to kill it. Then, they thought, they could obtain the whole store of precious metal at once; however, upon cutting the goose open, they found its innards to be like that of any other goose.


[edit]Morals

Greed destroys the source of good.
Think before you act.
Those who want too much lose everything.
The moral of wanting more and losing everything is similar to that of another Aesop fable called The Dog and the Bone .


In the English language, "Killing the golden goose" has become a metaphor for any short-sighted action that may bring an immediate reward, but will ultimately prove disastrous.

Klynne,
Are you alright?
I sure hope I did not hurt your feelings

I have been contemplating whether growing a pair
will help you you in any way
and have decided that it wouldn't
be worth the trouble

Did one of you leave yet?

Please don't be a stranger....
OX L,L
