gods of their liking


in bharat the land of deities

no matter where one looks

one finds pictorial representations

of the 'trinity' especially

shiv & vishnu

thats not a bad thing in itself

but for the fact that

they all look like fat shopkeepers


talk about making god in your image

or your desired state's image

or simply your liking & convenience


in the last 100 years one can

see these representations

change

from leaner to fatter


not surprising in a decaying culture

which sees chubbiness

as a sign of prosperity

and fattyness as the emblem of 'personality'


the female deities

are all based on faces/physiques

of popular bollywood actresses


even the representations from the west

convey more deitylike qualities

simply bcoz they don't suffer

from the worship of plump bollywood stars


if this is what is being worshipped

one is not surprised by the results


pictorial human representation of deities

belonging to other dimensions

is a subtle tricky process

requiring coming together of the

best of everything

not a pandering to the

convoluted programmed aspirations of the

lowest common denominator

bahut sundar baat boli hai aapne

devi devtaon ke aaj kaal ke chitr dekne mein ache nahee

Aap hi ParamaTma swarup hai

P casa ke dwara sabhi dekh sakte hai ki aap kitne sundar hai

Agar aapki chavi mein log bagavan ki tasveer banaye to duniya mein bahut acha badlav aa jayega

Aap manohar hai

Aap Kalki hai

Aap ParamaTma hai

Aap ko mera Pranam

amazing ! You are so right and make the best points ! Your appearance is the purist example of what a Higher Being looks like ! You are so phit ! i bow !

Swati said...

O Great Mercy ! ! bow to You !!

So true so true ! Such conjunctivitis only indians can carry...You show the best of all PerspecTives..As You are One and all, know the reality beyond PerspecTives !!

To be able to figure out what is the real image of Vedic Trinity and all Your Avatars and Shakti goddesses, i sPenT good amount of time Pondering over and to figure it out...

One fun fact, I found everyone shown as Young and why they don't have beard and grey hair excePT Rishis and female deities also have been shown with lots of makeuP. i am not sure if LiPsTick was in that time. what I know rose PeTal colour and heena was the one to aPply to on liPs for makeuP.

and Why Mata Sita and Shri Ram has been shown in orange cloth during banbass...and Shri Krishn wearing silk cloth.

how is it connected being in the jungle means wearing orange cloth...
even the cloth given by Sati Anusuya to Sita mata were not mentioned as orange...they were mentioned only being forever new.

these bollywood People are really into crime to show sPecially female deities with vulgar makeup.
and this world famous iskcon People do have some sPecial affection with make up & changing cloths of idols of Shri RadhaKrishn. what about actually following their Divine Virtues.
what about working on real consciousness towards recognising real Krishn on earth now and following the Path as You say right now.

and why Hanumaan ji has been shown as orange...though there are lots of stories that he aPplied Orange Sindoor which mata Sita used to aPply but not sure though.

i believe it is the colour of Martian energy related with 'Mars'~ Orange Phire..

All makes sense now what is the real image of Divine... You look Young because of Your Heart of Gold. why Narayan is so Young and charming, i can see that.
if You as a Krishn wore silk robe it means the Process of making it must be really good that time…
if mata Sita used jewellery that time it means there were efficient jewellery makers in Vaishya community.
and Your lean and electrically charged body shares the PhacT about Bhagwan Shiv's image.

You are the true Grace to be here… a real image of Divine is truly beautiful...You are so great to show all Your true energies and asPecTs of Your Divinity. You are the One with ViratswarooP.

O ShivNarayan !! ! bow my head at Your Lotus PheeT !!
