  1. Re: Hinduism , pagan and 12 step programmes

    Yes, you can mix. The deities will let you know. I am Hindu but Thor is a deity I am also fond of and drawn to. I have a small shrine for him, separate from my Hindu shrine. The reason is that if I...
  2. Re: People Are Making A Big Deal Of A Black Mermaid

    Really!? I never heard of that, but I don't doubt it.
  3. Re: People Are Making A Big Deal Of A Black Mermaid

    Taking a detour off the rails for a moment... why do redheads/gingers get looked-down on? :=S: I think ginger men are absolutely stunning. Prince Harry is a hunk, I've done business with red-headed...
  4. Re: People Are Making A Big Deal Of A Black Mermaid

    Idris Elba could do a marvelous job of portraying a dust bunny as far as I'm concerned! :XD laugh:

    Re: Interactions between pantheons

    Interesting thoughts, thanks.

    I'm a semi-hard polytheist, like Jarlsberg cheese. We have a plethora of gods and goddesses in Hinduism, many or most of whom are manifestations, forms, incarnations...

    Re: Interactions between pantheons

    Yeah, he is one of the gods at Odin's war meeting. He didn't speak, only his face was shown. The actor is Al Maini.

    Interactions between pantheons

    As a fan of the tv show American Gods on Starz https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1898069/ I'm excited that more of the old gods are entering the story. This season we see Kali, Frau Holle, Ahura Mazda,...

    Sticky: Re: what do you look like right now?

    I've changed a bit in 4 years. :p I didn't like the gray at all. Or the Santa Claus comments.

  11. Re: Where did your practices (and specific beliefs) originate?

    Since I was a kid I had a fascination with India and what I came to know as Hinduism. In fact, as a 10 year old in 5th grade, I remember writing a little story for class about the god Indra and a...

    Re: Are Most Religions Anti-Science?

    Hinduism and science are old friends.
  13. Re: Subjective meaning vs Objective Facts and their role in your religion

    My feelings to a t. :) I really not need expand on it (but I will :p).

    Like you, I don't want to see science disprove the beliefs I have. If we're talking about needing proof of something I...

    Re: Unpopular Opinions.

    Unpopular amongst Hindus, my take on the beef-eating (or not) thing. Contrary to popular belief, cows are not worshiped per se, but are revered as a mother figure. She provides milk for her babies as...

    Re: Clowns. Just, Clowns.

    I heard this morning that this is in anticipation of the remake of Stephen King's It, and the return of Pennywise. Whatever the reason, someone is going to get injured, or even killed.

    Re: Kirtan and using voice in meditation.

    There is the story of Groa singing charms to attempt to remove the shards of whetstone from Thor's forehead. So if singing/chanting is used for a god, it must be pretty powerful.

    Re: Kirtan and using voice in meditation.

    There are many, many translations, all of which pretty much give the same idea. So yours is not far off. Sanskrit is a highly inflected language. It lends itself to structured poetry, as well as...

    Re: Kirtan and using voice in meditation.

    I hadn't heard that rendition before, but it's very nice. I have a few recordings of hers. This is my favorite https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nDnamSM3Z3s (I don't know who performs it).

  22. Re: Things we use as offerings and perhaps why we use them as a personal choice

    Some people consider Hindus pagans, even one Hindu I know does, so I'll jump in here. Especially since I still have one foot in Heathenry with Thor. :p

    When I offer to Thor, it is usually beer or...

    That representation of Kālī essentially undoes who and what she is. The name Kālī is the feminine version of the word/name Kāla, which has two meanings: time (destroyer, change,...
