I watched #KantaraMovie today and was thrilled while watching the #Varaha #Worship scenes. Appa had narrated a story where some 20+ years back he travelled with forest rangers deep into the south Canara forest in the middle of the night to see Bhuta worship dance and ritual.

He took some amazing photographs with his film camera very similar to the visuals in the movie. We are trying to locate those photographs. Will share it soon.

I watched Rishab Shetty's interview in #Tamil and what a conviction in his #Hindu #Belief (#Deiva_Vazhipadu)! Appa would have loved this movie!

Congrats to the entire #KantaraMovie team for bringing out our regional traditions and culture to #entertainment field🙏.

“Political end by litigious means”

In the 49-page ruling, the three-person tribunal comprehensively considered the 10 points of the detailed complaint, brought on behalf of Fraser by high-profile pro-Israel lawyer Anthony Julius.

#MishconDeReya
#Zionism
#Belief
#EqualityAct
After dismissing each one of them in detail (“without substance … devoid of any merit … palpably groundless … untenable … obviously hopeless”), the document appears to foreclose the possibility of another such “lawfare” attack ever being brought to court again
“Lessons should be learned from this sorry saga.
We greatly regret that the case was ever brought.
At heart, it represents an impermissible attempt to achieve a political end by litigious means.
It would be very unfortunate if an exercise of this sort were ever repeated”

‘The Trojan Horse Scandal and the Problem of Equalities in Britain Today’.

The event examined the scandal from a broad range of perspectives, engaging with debates on #equalities, #liberalism, and #Britishness.

northernnotes.leeds.ac.uk/the-trojan-hor…
It also provided an opportunity to discuss and generate a dialogue about the significance of the 'Trojan Horse’ scandal and the duty placed on schools after the scandal to promote Fundamental British Values (FBV) in the promotion of #democracy.
Speakers analysed how both are reproducing narratives of racial discrimination & inequalities in a context that is informed by minoritising communities, #problematising specific religious #values, & essentialising the signification of social, religious, & cultural identities.

I think its time to talk about #ReligiousFreedom and exactly where one person’s #freedom starts, and another’s ends. And no I’m not talking about a woman’s body dividing cells, I’m talking about breathing adults who #vote
#ReligiousFreedom is SO important to everybody. And I agree that I ALSO want my own #FreedomOfReligion. But other people DON’T get to define that.
I am in charge of my own #belief systems. You could even say I’m RESPONSIBLE for them🤔
#AmericanTaliban
No matter how wacky they got, the point in time where I am no longer allowed to practice my #Religion, would start IF it harmed another breathing adult, and that word #harm is pretty loaded too, isn’t it?
How do we define #Freedom?
How do we define #Life?
#Happiness??

#BELIEF_TRUST

A person started to walk on a rope tied between two tall towers. He was slowly walking balancing a long stick in his hands. He has his son sitting on his shoulders.

Every one from the ground were watching him in bated breath and were very tensed.
When he slowly reached the second tower every one clapped, whistled and welcomed him. They shook hands and toll selfies.

He asked the crowd “do you all think I can walk back on the same rope now from this side to that side?”

Crowed shouted in one voice “Yes,Yes,you can”
Do you trust me he asked.

They said yes, yes, we are ready to bet on you.

He said okay, can any one of you sit on my shoulder; I will take you to the other side safely.

There was stunned silence. Every one bacame quiet

#Belief is different. #Trust is different.*

A more literal rendering of the risen Jesus' words to Thomas is: "Do not be unbelieving, but believing." (John 20:27) Faith, says the Bible, is a gift, not something we can decide to have. But it won't come or grow if we refuse to stand under, listen to the witness about Jesus.
I'm a former atheist who, for a decade, refused to listen to or believe in the witness for Jesus, as God the Son, Who died and rose for us. Then, in the fellowship of an amazing congregation, I started to listen: to the down-to-earth Christians who loved and were...
...grateful to Jesus for God's charitable love, His grace; to the Word of Scripture and the Word shared in sermons and gatherings. As I began to stand under this witness, I began to understand. More than that, God gave me faith...

I've only recently started studying Western magic, but I'm struck that, unlike in religion (!) belief is quite central to it. It's often referred to as intention but it's belief. In religion you can get away with metaphors, magic requires a stronger commitment to metaphysics 1/n
It might be that Anglo-American contemporary magic is influenced by Protestant focus on personal conviction, but #magic does rest on focusing the mind and believing in what one does. I've heard a senior magician saying that too much scepticism makes magic impossible. 2/n
Intention in #magic is not focused attention (e.g. I want X) rather it's an intention 'sent' to the universe/unconscious etc. that bypasses the rational mind, that's why I think it's more correct to talk about #belief rather than intention, in the sense of 'belief in' 3/n

It is two months to the publication of @lisabortolotti's The Epistemic Innocence of Irrational Beliefs (@OUPPhilosophy) and we will tweet a weekly quote from it to get you interested... buff.ly/2Xokxnb #EpistInnocence2020 /1
"The core idea is a provocation: what if some epistemically irrational #beliefs have a role to play in securing active engagement with our surrounding physical and social environment, and can help restore such an engagement after a critical disruption?" #EpistInnocence2020 /2
"We should make room for the possibility that the reporting of distorted #memory beliefs is for the person with #Alzheimer’s disease a means to averting a breakdown in epistemic functionality at a critical time." #EpistInnocence2020 /3

I read a beautiful message on #belief and #trust and found it #TooGoodNotToShare

A person started to walk on a rope tied between two tall towers. He was slowly walking balancing a long stick in his hands. He has his son sitting on his shoulders.
Every one from the ground were watching him in bated breath and were very tensed. When he slowly reached the second tower every one clapped, whistled and welcomed him. They shook hands and took selfies. Few also posted them on social media ..
He asked the crowd “do you all think I can walk back on the same rope now from this side to that side?”

The Crowd shouted in one voice “Yes,Yes,you can”

Do you trust me he asked. They said yes, yes, we are ready to bet on you.

#Faith happens only when the #duality has fallen; it is not a #belief against #doubt.

When belief and doubts both have disappeared, then something happens which is faith, which is #trust.
When desiring disappears there is trust!

#Trust means moving with #life without any #expectations, #desires, demands of your own. Not #asking, not #complaining. Whatsoever happens, #accepting it with deepest #gratitude and #awareness.
Simply seeing the #reality, that the #opposite is implied everywhere, #trust happens.

It is not in any #helplessness that you #accept. It is simply the nature of #life that the opposite is implied.

Looking at the #fact, #truth, deep inside you, gives you trust..

Any #action, #thought or #emotion which comes out of #awareness is a #blessing

Every action, thought or emotion which has its roots in #ignorance is a #curse.
Most people use "lack of #bad #intention" as an #excuse to cover up their #ignorance
#Belief is the root of all #ignorance
