While some have expressed surprise that this question should be negatively answered concerns let us emphatically state concerns are valid. 1st there is nothing strange about the consumption of bovine excreta and fecal matter. It is a common adaptation seen across pastoralists of
different origins. We know our Indo-European strand of ancestry on the steppes did so; African cattle-breeding tribes do so; it will not be surprising if the Harappans & south Indian Ash mound tribes did something like that given that they were cattle rearers too. Urine & fecal
matter, each probably had their own adaptive significance. In the case of former some metabolites might have had useful physiological effect. Well collected mid-stream urine would not have much of health issues due to being mostly sterile. The shit might have had value in
normalizing the microbial flora between the bovid &the pastoralist providing a chance for better exploitation of bovid milk products and also developing resistance to bovine diseases that allowed more effective pastoralism. We have evidence that at least 1 of the past coronavirus
jumped to us from a bovid & over time we reached an equlibrium with it. Thus, consumption of bovine waste might have generally helped develop resistance to disease from the bovid. 1 could imagine other benefits, less certain though, like "microflora normalization"; antimicrobial
properties of dung myxobacteria. By the former, I mean a proto-version of "fecal implant" and the latter might have more relevance in thatching with the shit. All that said, the concerns of consuming these are valid for a modern because he's typically not in close contact with
bovids. Thus, consuming this without that regular exposure might not give him any benefit but potentially a disease. This is particularly relevant in places where bovids are reared in poor hygiene and thus carry a potentially risky pathogen/parasite load. Hence, observe caution
The same in principle applies to consuming mAMsa in a yAga but the risk might be lowered depending on the level of cooking. Real soma poses minimal risks and has good benefits if judiciously consumed. With surA much more care is required both in terms of contamination& amount

Grant and
Lee, Patton and Eisenhower, MacArthur and Bradley, Westmoreland & Schwarzkopf. It was impossible not to be humbled and moved by the tradition those men represented, the service and sacrifice that had helped forge a nation, defeat fascism, & halt the march of
totalitarianism. Just as it was necessary to recall that Lee had led a Confederate Army intent on preserving slavery and Grant had overseen the slaughter of Indian tribes - iti kR^iShNAnAM rAjA mlechChAnAM saMrAT...
One good thing the ardhakR^iShNamlechChesha did was to return the evil genocidal Churchill's image back to the brits. If one psychoanalyzes that sentence one gets a feeling that he was quite different from other mlechCheshvara-s. Ironically, both he & nAri~NgapurSha wanted to do

This important work on the ethnogenesis of the Mongols has been finally published. A few comments follow:
First around 3300 BCE and before. The red is the Afanasievo: the 1st Indo-European invasion of the East. What is striking (to me at least) is that
some of the Bactria Margiana (BMAC) ancestry is seen in the East (brow) the black and green are ancient north east Asian and ancient northern Eurasian. Next, around 2000 BCE+-200 yrs the second IE invasion of the east took place now likely by an Indo-Iranian group. This brought
the Sintashta ancestry (orange) into Mongolia. Another new ancestry appears in the form of the Baikal bronze age people in cyan. Even in the bronze age we see some admixture with the BMAC & Indo-Iranians. In the early Fe age by 1000 BCE we see that the BMAC is strongly resurgent

The almost all of our deva-s are ugra, and can manifest as ugradevatA-s. For example in the teaching of arjuna he says it is gods who slay who inspire worship: manasataramgini.wordpress.com/2013/03/05/the…
He says that brahman, dhAtR^i and puShaN are left out because they are not slayers. He's wrong
about puShaN probably because the Mbh is already far removed from the RV where puShaN was capable of causing fear -- the bharadvAja-s invoke him in the midst of battle. Ironically, his greek ortholog Pan is the root of panic & is said to have put fear into the Iranians on behalf
of his yavana votaries when they clashed at Marathon. Hence, one could argue that the distinction of ugradevatA is mostly not a big deal as most deva can manifest as ugradevatA-s. That said the there are some frameworks that are better for the kshatra mindset than others even in

One also see widely different perceptions of the geopolitical consequences of this American election. Whatever people think, it is a big +ve for India's enemies TSP and chIna. What is not known is how much they can capitalize on this gain to harm India. It is also a +ve for the
deeply cultivated rudhira assets of the Occident in India. There will be lot more support for action such as that which took place in response to CAA. Again the capacity for them to capitalize this gain to hit H in a big way as long as the lATarAja rules in indraprastha is still
unclear. I do understand the final result has not yet been called and all this is based on where things stand. However, it would be prudent for the H bhAgurAyaNa-s to be on the highest alert starting next year. The stuff of note will be in the detail, the panjandrums who were

25 years ago in the US left-liberal virtue signaling was not as prominent as today. It remained contained in certain circles and the 1st amendment still had a lot of teeth and the internet was a young free place. While race played a role in how much your were paid (Eu origin
getting more) it did not trump merit in terms of who got what job. It was mostly a meritocracy. The internet freedoms eroded over the next 5-7 years & the path was opened for the ascendency of the बेझ-गुगुल्वादि-दुष्टाः बेझः was already evil (e.g. blocking real assessments of
favored leftist authors like Jared Diamond) but गुग्गुलु was still not entirely evil. Most of the restrictions to the free internet came from the rulers of the land rather than from गुग्गुल्वादि। Over the next 10 years something interesting happened: बेझः increase in evil with

The notable image installed by the Uighur Bojianu, cavalry general of the left wing of the imperial corps of the Mongol Khan, at Baochengsi under the patronage of the grand princess Sengge Ragi, the great-granddaughter of Khubilai Khan, the governess of the state of Lu.Of all the
various buddha-s the Tibetan lama-s tried to get the great Khan Khubilai interested in he was more drawn to the H deities absorbed by the tAthAgata-mata and has a special devotion to mahAkAla and his circle of deities. He had employed lama Phagspa to create the new Mongol script
& had his student Dam pa to perform mahAkAla rituals for him. In 1275 CE he performed a yuddha-jaya ritual invoking the retinue of mahAkala for the success of his general Bayan in the campaign against the chIna-s.
