The utter generosity of the poor humbles us. They give rice to every mendicant even when their rice is getting over. That is what needs to be understood - their greatnes and their richness. That is what they are defined by. That they are impoverished is what defines us.
We are the cause of that poverty - and the onus is on us to share deeply and completely. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
an english-educated person to claim theism needs courage. Because God
cannot be proved by modern science, and so is superstition according to
this science's claim to being the sole holder of all knowlege ! It took a village and many years for me to own up my theism.
Shyamala SanyalThe concept of God as an entity with attributes is way off the mark
is fine. There are steps. Before one can reach the attributeless god,
one works with the ishta devata. He who has reached the highest steps
understands that there are lower steps.
Aparna KrishnanAnyway I am at the lowest of low steps :), and dismiss no one and nothing.
