I think this obsession we have in our culture with shaving — taking away body hair on men and women — I think it’s really dangerous, it’s like wanting to infantilize yourself and wanting to make something sexy that is not adult, it’s more prepubescent, and I think that’s really weird and dangerous, don’t you?

Dharma connotes different meanings for different people. I have been told that it is just about duty. I don’t think so.

The word Dharma is not translatable into any language, as such.

It is a combination of duty, ethics, morals and a host of other…

Today is Gita Jayanti
Today is the day we Hindus celebrate the anniversary of the revealing of the Bhagavad Gita from Lord Sri Krishna to Arjuna on the Kurukshetra battlefield. Please spend this day in reverence to our Holy Bhagavad Gita, to which without it many would be lost. Take this day to reread your Gita, interpret it freely, treat it with care and thank our Lord Sri Krishna for unveiling its mastery.
Read an unabridged and unchanged version without commentary. Make your own interpretations, listen to Krishna’s true words. Please note that Bhagavad Gita As It Is is completely rewritten and changed by Prabhupada- get yourself a copy of an original!
Happy Gita Jayanti to all!

The point, old friend, and this is a very important point- is to do your worldly duty, but do it without any attachment to it or desire for its fruits.

Bhagavad Gita (via thankuclarity)
