  3. Re: Why do you believe 'Sanathana Dharma' is the 'way to go' for real spirituality?

    Greetings,

    Re: Vaishnava vs(?) ISKCON?

    Namaste,

    Someone brought up the subject about the beads. Is that really true, does one really get condemned for forgetting to bring beads to various ISKCON temples? Or was that a dramatization of...

    Namaste,

    I refer to such spinelessness as the Placating Impotency Conundrum (PIC). This is largely due to most Hindus having lost the Vedic doctrine of Virya Mentality (VM). Therefore, make no...
