    One God with many names / One religion with many names

    Well I'm not sure about Zeus - but both Jehovah and Krishna claim to be the Supreme God, of all Gods (in a realistic sense) is it not? From Krishna's teachings in the Gita: "Those who are devotees of other gods and who worship them with faith actually worship only Me, O son of Kunti, but they...

    Do you need a master, guru or group?

    The self propelled search to realise that there is no self? I wouldn't agree philosophically, but am I reading this right, or lost the plot? It's late on a friday afternoon, so my brain is not functioning at normal speed... Hari Om :) ... Neemai

    Do you need a master, guru or group?

    I think there might be something crucial in what you say here. I love communicating with spiritually minded people and teachers via email, but the effect of focusing on the internet could be leaving us (as a society) lacking in other areas. Interesting train of thought ... ... Neemai :)

    JW's, Sccientologists, Moonies.. when does a cult become a religion?

    I'd be tempted to join you 17th... especially after seeing the poster! :D but I'm already spoken for. ;) As someone who follows a religious tradition often termed as a cult I thought I'd throw in a few "insider" opinions. :p Although all Gaudiya-Vaishnava ('Hare Krsna') temples around the...

    Do you need a master, guru or group?

    We have all those things at our disposal, and yet if we want to drive a car the standard process is still to learn under the guidance of a driving instructor. Similarly, if we want to learn how to be a doctor, we still have to go to University for several years to learn both the theory and it's...

    Jesus was a Buddhist

    Was Jesus a Buddhist? Well, I've put some thought into this and come to the following conclusion: If Jesus was a Buddhist he would have - a) followed the teachings of Buddha; b) denounced the existance of any external saviour (i.e. God) c) chanted "Om mani padme hum", or similar d) wore red...

    Thomas: Did the sun stop moving?

    Is it just me, or is this way off the plot somewhere? Surely this thread isn't what this forum should be about? If someone started telling a faithful Muslim how they should interpret the Koran would we not expect some strong defence to the contrary? What's the difference in this case? Is...

    Do you need a master, guru or group?

    Unfortunately all of what Francis says does really go on in the "guru" business. In all walks of life and religions I'm sure. However, in my experience when you meet someone who is actually 'for real', then that meeting is the most priceless thing you can practically have. No amount of...

    Do you need a master, guru or group?

    Namaste Vajra, From the perspective of Gaudiya Vaishnava tradition I'm totally with you on both counts. ... and can also have sympathies on this count. Thought you might like this: He reasons ill who says that the great saints die when thou are living still in sound! The spiritual...

    Do you need a master, guru or group?

    No, personally I wouldn't. I respect the Bible as a sacred text (especially the new testament), but as a non-Christian it's not an important issue to me. However I wouldn't see it as incorrect for someone of a Christian persuasion to see the Bible in this way, as long as they didn't enforce...

    What should be the overall purpose in CR? (if any)

    I'd like to ask this question of everyone just to see how it varies amongst us. Should the purpose of discussing on these forums be to establish some concensus of ultimate truth through argument? If that is our purpose then what would the value of such a concensus be, as these forums are only a...

    Do you need a master, guru or group?

    You say that like it's a bad thing(?), but for many followers of Hinduism this is one of the core teachings. "If one has unflinching faith in the Supreme Lord and the spiritual master, the essence of all Vedic knowledge is revealed to him." (Svetasvatara Upanishad 6.23) ... Neemai :) P.S -...
