738.  It is an ancient and venerated custom of people in my country to start a story by praying to a Higher Power.

I guess, Your Excellency, that I too should start off by kissing some god’s arse.

Which god’s arse, though?  There are so many choices.

See, the Muslims have one god.

The Christians have three gods.

And we Hindus have 36,000,004 divine arses to choose from.  (Gods & Hindus)  Aravind Adiga, The White Tiger

75,839.  The ancient Hindus created a calendar that some interpreters believe also points to 2012.  The mythology of the Hindus, like that of the Maya and Hopi, believes that life in the universe occurs in cycles.  According to Hindu myth each cycle of life is divided into four ages called Yugas, the Dvapara, Treta, Satya and the Kali.  (Hinduism & Time)  Nostradamus Effect: Extinction 2001

 

 

75,840.  The modern system of Time we use on our watches – it’s twelve hours of a.m. and twelve hours of p.m. ... Our present system of Time is a microcosm of the Yugas system.  (Hinduism & Time)  Walter Cruttenden, author Lost Star of Myth and Time

75,854.  Sadhu: these Ascetic wear no clothes and cover their bodies with ash.  ibid.   

 

 

75,855.  The very birth of a priest [Brahmin] is the eternal physical form of religion; for he is born for the sake of religion and is fit to become one with ultimate reality.  (Hinduism & Priest)  Laws of Manu 1:98

75,859.  A girl, a young woman, or even an old woman should not do anything independently, even in [her own] house.  (Hinduism & Girl)  5:147

 

75,860.  Man has said that non-violence, truth, not stealing, purification, and the suppression of the sensory powers is the duty of the four classes, in a nutshell.  10:63

 

 

75,861.  From delusion lead me to Truth.

From darkness lead me to Light.

from death lead me to immortality.  The Upanishads, Brihadaranayaka Upanishad

 

75,862.  Be compassionate.  One should practise this same triad: self- restraint, giving, compassion.  (Hinduism & Compassion)  ibid.

75,864.  Abiding in the midst of ignorance, thinking themselves wise and learned, fools go aimlessly hither and thither, like blind led by the blind.  ibid.

 

 

75,865.  In the morning I bathe my intellect in the stupendous and cosmogonal philosophy of the Bhagavad Gita, since whose composition years of the gods have elapsed, and in comparison with which our modern world and its literature seem puny and trivial; and I doubt if that philosophy is not to be referred to a previous state of existence, so remote is its sublimity from our conceptions.  I lay down the book and go to my well for water, and lo!  there I meet the servant of the Brahmin, priest of Brahma and Vishnu and Indra, who still sits in his temple on the Ganges reading the Vedas, or dwells at the root of a tree with his crust and water jug.  I meet his servant come to draw water for his master, and our buckets as it were grate together in the same well.  The pure Walden water is mingled with the sacred water of the Ganges.  Henry David Thoreau, Walden

 

 

75,866.  The Bhagavad-Gita is the most systematic statement of spiritual evolution of endowing value to mankind.  It is one of the most clear and comprehensive summaries of perennial philosophy ever revealed; hence its enduring value is subject not only to India but to all of humanity.  Aldous Huxley

 

 

75,867.  Hinduism is not just a faith.  It is the union of reason and intuition that cannot be defined but is only to be experienced.  Evil and error are not ultimate.  There is no Hell, for that means there is a place where God is not, and there are sins which exceed his love.  Bhagavad Gita
