3. I remember one from Bengal. I do not know her name readily.
Could this be Sri Anandamayi Ma?

General Discussion / Was Annamalaiyar temple a Jain temple?
« on: May 11, 2011, 02:46:29 PM »
From Wikipedia:
Quote
As per archaeologist and confirmed history ,this Arunachaleshwara temple was originally converted from Dravidian Samanar religion, who are micro minority in South India now. Around 8000 Samanar saints were killed in one day when this temple as well as many Samanar temples were forcibly converted to Brahmin temples. There is no historicity in Brahminical claims. However it makes no difference who controls the temple and the main deity who is renamed after Shiva originally from Arugar ( Adinath- Dravidian god) , Such temples which were originally part of non-vedic dravidian heritage,which includes other famous temples like Nagaraj temple in Nagercoil,Kamakshi temple in Kanchipuram, Varadarperumal in Kanchipuram, Tirupati Balaji at Thirumala hills. History of Hinduism started in Tamilnadu only after 5 th C A.D.
Please, is this true?

But the Shaktas believe that Devi is supreme reality, are they wrong or do they somehow include Sivam/Brahman with the nature of Mahadevi?

Siva can be there without Sakti.  That is after dissolution of the
universe, Siva remains alone, with Sakti merged inseparably with
Him.  But Sakti cannot be there without Siva.

So Mahadevi, the Divine Mother, she is not eternal in truth?  ???

What I understand of Hindu philosophy, Shiva does nothing, only Shakti (Devi) acts.
Is that true?
What did Bhagavan say about Shiva & Shakti?

Why only few are blessed with grace?
Doesn't God have an interest in our well-being?

The teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi / Liberation
« on: February 06, 2011, 01:57:25 AM »
In a book about Ramakrishna Paramahamsa I read him say that of 1 million people liberation is attained by perhaps 1 person only.
When it is so rare, why even bother?

What did Bhagavan say about Karma, is Karma for individuals only or do groups such as families, countries or even companies have Karma too?

Problem is: Bhagavan recommended "Arunachala Shiva" and I have trust in Bhagavan, but I feel more devotion to Devi than to Shiva, so it is difficult for me to make a decission.
