tks, I never said you did, all I wanted you to do was to put yourself on the other side and imagine what your reaction would be if you were the recipient of the cryptic comment "stupid story".I have never given you a story first of all ..
We all share with an intent to share, ....., if you are trying to say you wouldn't mind if it is called stupid, then please state it clearly.If I share something it is with intent to share something without regard to how it is taken.
Ok, but do you think your cryptic comment qualifies as "mature discussion"? You are still ducking this question, shall I say "as always" as you have said below?There is nothing called valid critique .. only mature discussion.
What about this, is this also mature? Please note (a) I have no interest in having the last word, and (b) we have been implacable opponents for long, I don't think I gave any more than what I took from you. Sometime back I offered an olive branch and you apparently accepted. To now say, "call me all kinds of names" with a smiley at the end is disingenuous.I am going to stop this discussion now .. you can as always have the last word and call me all kinds of names
The above part is not clear to me..Does it mean if I am highly spiritually inclined no power on earth can do anything to me ie my body, say even a Tsunami or an Earthquake 9.0 on the Richter scale
Regarding the dhrabai story, there is a scientific reason behind it. The natural rays falling from the sun and moon are being blocked during the eclipse and . Hence concentration of germs in the air and water is like to increase . Thats the reason we are advised to take bath or clean the homes after the eclipse is complete.
That is not what he means. The problem is we all are too obsessed with the physical aspect, the "matter" over "mind". The mind is much vaster than the physical definition that we have of it. The Tsunami or fukushima can destroy the body, not the mind. I hope you get it..
tks, do you think your two word comment was mature in your maturity continuum? Do you think whatever you consider as immature is ipso facto immature and therefore, calling it stupid is quite mature?....I said a story is stupid (more like immature - I have given my definition of maturity continuum elsewhere more to explain myself) and I said a post was intelligent. It is interesting that you are not focusing on the intelligent comment !...

I have not been able to get a straight answer for the comment you made -- your skill in dodging and diverting is impressive -- and you want me to comment on some other post that you thought was intelligent? This is another diversionary tactic, the question I want to raise is your comment, which was irrational, immature, and far from the spirit of fair discussion. I had no interest in challenging you about what you considered intelligent, not because it was not challengeable, but because I couldn't get an answer from you even for a straight forward question about what you said, i.e. your own words, what chance do I have of getting one on a much more nebulous topic like what you consider intelligent.
In any case, since you ask, I will comment. The two examples that were cited in that post have rational explanations, and therefore they don't throw any light on the irrational idea that throwing water at the sun will reach their ancestors. I don't find anything intelligent in that post, and neither do I think the Guru Nanak story narrated stupid or immature. To call it stupid was immature.
BTW, there is a story about Adi Shankara and Baja Govindam with some parallel to this one, do you consider that story to be stupid too?
....Please review the thread of interaction around this topic. I said a story as a 'stupid story' characterizing it as immature.
Now I do not remember in any interaction that you were seeking an explanation out of just the need to understand.
tks, take a look at this //www.tamilbrahmins.com/general-discussions/14581-who-brahmanan-22.html#post222197. If this is not seeking an explanation what is I know not.
Your two word response "stupid story" was immature, that point still stands your long post has not changed that fact ....
My friends especially brahmin friends have nicknamed me as kristava brahmanan, since i speak tamil as they speak, i am a vegetarian, i wear dhothi as panchakacham, i read scriptures always, i mingle with brahmins, i learnt sanskrit and above all these, my wife is a brahmin.
To the extent i know, a brahmin is one who seeks brahman, the eternal truth (unmai paramporul), who has realized brahman, who practises brahman
So sweet..all this Lovvu Lovvu of the male kind!LOL
Not a male kind LoL
We find we have the capacity to 'love and hate' -a person, a group, a pet, an identity, a concept, a thing etc.
There is another kind which does not have an opposite - it is not a noun or verb or a feeling or an experience.. In English we do not have a word for that .. we can make up words like 'brotherly love' etc. It is unconditional because that kind of love is our nature of who we are. Since that 'love' is our true nature and unconditional (and not a feeling) the object of 'love' is the entire universe which include you also
To those who think love is about கல்லு and புல்லு, there is a city called Philadelphia in the U.S. The name literally means brotherly love in Greek -- philos = love; adelphos = brother. The founder, William Penn, wanted the city to serve as a model for universal love of all humanity without regard to color, creed, ethnicity, etc. Over its history the city did not live up to the founding motto, but at least it is recognized as something noble, i.e. brotherly love -- sisters included.
