    Sharing some thoughts about unity

    Howdy! We like to divide the world up into categories. This is to simplify communication among other things. If we had to be exact with our words in every case communication would take a ridiculously long time. The issue is that the categories and meanings we have in our heads tend to not all...

    Where to meet other people interested in Hinduism?

    I know this seems a bit silly as most people would say "... uhh at the temple? duh??" but it is not so easy for me, or maybe I am making this too difficult (probably the latter). In my city we have one iskcon temple and a hindu minority. A "regular" hindu temple with various deities is located...

    So this might seem a bit weird but...

    Well I had the urge to say something and I've learned in my few decades on this planet that sometimes you just do what you are urged to do. I just wanted you guys all to know that I am sending love all your ways. Even the folks I don't really agree with and the folks I don't know. I've only...

    Takeaways from the first Tablet of the Tabernacle of Unity concerning interfaith dialogue

    Every age hath its own problem, and every soul its particular aspiration. The remedy the world needeth in its present-day afflictions can never be the same as that which a subsequent age may require.

    What Jesus said! Jesus Himself? How, What and where?

    Muslims, Bahai's, Christians, Some Hindus, and even a few Jews, quote sayings of Jesus as if they are historical sayings of Jesus himself. Of course most Christians would definitely believe the New Testament has his sayings in some form or another. Some believe they are absolutely verbatim...

    Religions actively employ the cycle of abuse.

    I believe religious people frequently employ the cycle of abuse as a method for indoctrination and inculcating unquestioning devotion. I feel there is a strong parallel between indoctrination and the cycle of abuse. I have confidence that this practice causes emotional, physical, and...

    Can science reconcile different moral positions?

    I wanted to get opinions. I’ve had several conversations on line on the subject of morality. There are so many philosophical positions one can hold and many seem to be exclusive, on their own accounts, and have ardent defenders. Is morality neural and societal simultaneously? Subjectively, our...
