I have a question. If your child had passed away 12 years ago. And upon looking at this picture, the little cute pig in it through its darshan said to you that it was your child that passed away 12 years that had reincarnated as that cute little piggy and that it was on its way to get butchered right after the picture was snapped to become someones roast suckling pig, what would you do?
What actions would you take? Would you easily say, well that’s my childs karma, that’s what my child has to go through? Or would you get down on your knees right now and pray as hard as possible to Lord Ganesha to save your child who had reincarnated as that cute little piggy and was now on that picture on TAKA?
Aum. Please family, let us consider the state of slumber we sleep in when it comes to being considerate to others but how quick we act when it comes to a benefit for our own gain.
Aum, I love all of you, and my Lord Shiva bless all of you with attention, concentration, meditation, and samadhi. And my Lord Muruga bless you all with the secret ingredient of willpower.
"Temples with multiple deities can be confusing, especially for today's Hindu youth. For clarity, we need to bring forward a more precise understanding of the different Hindu denominations and how the different Gods are viewed from within each denomination. For spiritual advancement it is best to focus on one deity and get to the vibration that deity. When we hear teachings from various Hindus, it is important to understand and identify which denomination they are speaking from. This will avert confusion when that teaching gets contradicted in a different context where someone is talking about the same subject but from a different philosophical background."
