    We lack understanding?
    Your reply really says more about you than anything.
    We are not all Vaishanavas. We are not all of the same nature and temperament. We do not see the world through the same lens.
    I'm sorry you are insulted, but it's your right. I don't think there is anything insulting or disrespectful in being a Vaishnava and honoring and praying to Maa Kali. Maa Kali appeared from Maa Durga, whom even Sri Krishna told Arjuna to pray to. Moreover, Maa Durga took birth as Sri Krishna's sister.

    I was responding to this, and only this, and I did say it was my view:
    These different attitudes or moods do not reveal to us the true nature of the deity but they solely relate to the mind of the devotee.
    I think you should grow up and think before you start jumping on people. Sheesh!

    What I've learned here is that Vaishnavas are not allowed to make analogies or comment on bear cubs, because the bear cubs which frequent this forum apparently find it insulting.

    Indeed my >1400 posts, 49000 rep points, and >1 year membership says so much about me compared to a join date of April 2012, age 22, 36 posts and 2500 rep points.

    Now I'll bow out of the conversation, because a Vaishnava cannot possibly see unlimited aspects and forms in God.

    The issue was not regarding you being a Vaishnava and praying to Kali. You do not understand but tell me to grow up. I am only 22 yet for your 55 years on this earth you make no allowance for the headstrong youth but merely insult them. Isn't it the nature of the young people to thing they know it all?

    I did not realise this forum was driven only by reputation points, the number of posts and the length of ones membership. Substance is not required. Why not just close the forum to new members and set an age requirement? I should probably leave this forum is my views are disregarded based some reputation points and etc.

    Insult? No, underscoring your own words: "Isn't it the nature of the young people to thing they know it all?"

    You went on the offensive, which is all too common. You will learn that you do not know it all. None of us do.

    Shubhamastu; sudinamastu.

    Namaste.

    You did nothing wrong. You had a question, you asked it, there is no harm done.

    No fighting, except for a 5 mm kidney stone which is making me less tolerant of comments like the one attacking my beliefs; I wasn't going to let an attack on my opinions go unchallenged.

    You said nothing wrong, so no worries. In many of these threads there is always someone who has to go on the offensive, even for opinion and p.o.v. It's sad, especially in a religion that is rightly proud of its heritage of diversity and tolerance of beliefs and sects, and peace.
