Love vs Ego

I have recently started reading Bhagvad Gita As It Is by Srila Prabhupada and I felt really moved reading this particular paragraph.

Especially keep in mind the lines "He (Krsna) takes greater pleasure in His pure devotees Image
assuming the advantageous position of ordering Him than He does in being the giver of orders. Since He is master, everyone is under His orders, and no one is above Him to order Him. But when He finds that a pure devotee is ordering Him, He obtains transcendental pleasure,

JANMASTHAMI 2020 - Smarth & Vaishnav

..on an altar-like structure called tulsi chaura. (2/25)


3-Every #Hindu #Puja ceremony creates what they call #Panchamrita

..and Tulsi leaves are an essential ingredient of panchamrita

Some people say that even when Tulsi is once used in worship, can be cleaned and reused in another puja because it purifies itself. (3/25)

Inspired by the Persepolis pic, sharing a few 'pillars' seen in India. This set is of the Heliodorus pillar, a stone column in #Vidisha, MP. Could have been part of a Vishnu temple that was once at this site. Indo-Greek, dated to 113 BCE, rediscovered by Cunningham, 1877. ImageImageImageImage
This pillar is a virtual witness of Indian History - bearing inscriptions of Ashoka, Samudragupta and Jahangir. Originally Ashokan, was moved from Kaushambhi to its present day location inside the fort at #Prayagraj to commemorate Jahangir's accession. ImageImage
#ExploreUP: Kaushambhi is one of India's finest excavated sites. It still retains one Ashokan pillar which stands amidst green fields. ImageImageImage
