    Re: Vaishnava

    Here is the reference from the varAha purANa. This is the translation from the AITM series. I don't have the Sanskrit with me at the moment. It's 211.90 in the AITM edition for those who are interested.

    "90. While worshipping me, one would attain the highest station of Visnu. The Vaisnavites, О propitious madam, do purify the entire universe."

    "Wise men speak because they have something to say. Fools speak because they have to say something." - Plato
