Dear Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs and Jains, plz take four minutes and read this important thread.

One of the many, many Adharmas out there that the Dharmic must avoid to reach the goal of one world under Dharma, is liberalism ie embracing new ideas blindly. 👇
I'm not completely against embracing new ideas. However, if embracing a new idea doesn't serve Dharma or its community ultimately, or in a worse case scenario, if that hurts Dharma and its community, then such an idea should be discarded.

Ex : interfaith romance and marriage. 👇

How do you view inter-Dharmic romantic relationships (modest affairs/marriages between a man and a woman belonging to two #Dharmic religions)?

In other words, how do you view

#Hindu - Buddhist
Hindu - #Sikh
Hindu - #Jain
#Buddhist - Sikh
Buddhist - Jain &
Sikh - Jain bonds?
Okay, who voted already?
Who voted for 4 and why? 😔🙏

@NYSenate passed S6648 to educate NY school children before educating itself.
S6648 and @NYSA_Majority A8545 endanger #Hindu #Jain #Buddhist American students by not distinguishing between the sacred meaning and usage of the #swastika and the hateful Nazi hakenkreuz.
It erases #NativeAmerican history with the symbol too! #whirlinglogoflife. Please fix this @NYSA_Majority after doing some homework. @HinduAmerican has some important resources that you must read 👇🏼

A thread explaining the significance of #GuruPurnima.

ब्रह्मानन्दं परमसुखदं केवलं ज्ञानमूर्तिम्
द्वन्द्वातीतं गगनसदृशं तत्त्वमस्यादिलक्ष्यम् ।
एकं नित्यं विमलमचलं सर्वधीसाक्षीभूतम्
भावातीतं त्रिगुणरहितं सद्गुरुंतं नमामि ।
The first full moon (Pournami) after the summer solstice in the month of Aashadhi is when the #Guru(#Adiyogi) first decided to enlighten his disciples & bestowed the Sapta Rishi's( 7 sages) with yogic understanding . Hence it is celebrated as #GuruPurnima . +
3/7 * Meaning of GURU *
Gu - Ignorance
Ru - Elimination
So a Guru is hailed as someone who imparts education & transfers the pearls of wisdom attained over years to his/her students thereby removing ignorance. Our life is incomplete without a Guru. +

@cityofsaintpaul: @DaiThao1 @abrendmoen @christolbertstp @mitrajunjalali @janeprinceW7 @NelsieYang @RebeccaNoecker Islamic org CAIR sponsored #AntiCAA resolution is NOT ONLY inaccurate, divisive & spreading false narratives, BUT has massive #antiHindu #antiIndia connotation.
@melvincarter3: What does a small city of St. Paul with a population of 304,442 (2016 numbers) in the U.S. has got to do with international law, sovereignty and democracy of India that houses 4 times more population than the United States?#Hinduphobia #antiHindu #antiIndia
Q. What does the city council want to accomplish by passing the resolution?
Q. Why is the city council so eager to pass this resolution?
Q. Why is the city council spreading misinformation without proper understanding?

Trying to think like a satanic piece of 💩 so I can figure out where a few things are like the:

-Other destinations


I have seen old newspaper articles with this map saying it was an ancient Buddhist map
Not saying they're real or not, but I don't discredit anything at this point. There has to be someone out there with some info

#India's Supreme Court clears the way for construction of #Hindu temple on site of destroyed #BabriMasjid in #Ayodhya.

I've been following this issue for 30+ years. Here's a thread analyzing the #AyodhyaJudgment:…
2/n #AyodhyaJudgment
-I first visited #Ayodhya (& #BabriMasjid) in 1990: before the masjid was destroyed, before I entered the field of #anthropology. I went there while researching my first book, "Arrow of the Blue-Skinned God": A re-tracing of the #Hindu epic #Ramayana...
3/n #AyodhyaJudgment
...In my book, I take what I hope is an even-handed approach. For what it's worth, I've received approving messages from #Hindutva activists & #secularists alike. You can judge for yourself:…

Babul, a #Hindu refugee from Kutupalong refugee camp said "Border Guard Police, Myanmar Army, (#Buddhist) villagers and Thet people" were involved in the #HinduMassacre in #KhaMaungSeik, #Maungdaw, #Myanmar.
#Rohingya #MyanmarMilitary #AmnestyInternational
Well actual question is now credibility of amnesty now!! “Amnesty's report blaming #Rohingya ARSA forces for killing 99 hindus has been called "illogical" by the Bangladesh foreign ministry. What are the problems with the conclusions in the report? | by @shafiur

Another example of why you should always read the small print. Despite the #ClickBait title, the author himself agrees that the effect is not #Sanskrit specific.
Beats me as to why you would say one thing in the title and another in your article.
Better controls for testing the validity of #sanskrit being the cause for the enlarged hippocampi would've been #Buddhist monks who have similar chanting practices.

Depiction of a temple having a dome and entrance framed within a 'pointed arch'
Dated: ~1-3rd century CE
Entrance is likely derived from arched torana with concentric arches, space between them is beautifully decorated with scrollwork and floral patterns. #Gandhara
Dome of the temple was capped by Kalasha.

Fortunately there are various temples same features which survived the wrath of Islamic invaders. See the one in below link


In the above temple, we can see the space for similar projected door frame.
Head of Skanda, Peshawar

Dated: ~2-3rd century CE
