Mother, Father, Allah, and God

There is one Mother who cares. For everything. For everyone. You just have to call Her.

Many a times, you don't even call Her. She Herself manifests into different people - not necessarily female. She loves me. In form of one of you. Or in form of strangers. I don't get it quick. But I know it's my Mother. You call Her Krishna. I address Her as Amma. That's the only difference.

You don't like Her as Mother Goddess, because you are too busy praying to Her in form of Venkatesh or Ram or Krishna.

There are people who don't want Saraswati Stuti, but won't miss on Ma Laxmi's prasadam. What ideology is that? Do you really believe there are 33 crore gods?

All of them are manifestations of my Mother. Call Her by any name. Draw Her in any shape. She would not mind. Because She is my Mother. You unnecessarily fear Her, dragging Her down to a personality, assigning Her some attributes that your books say.

But I know my Mother Goddess. She is much above your religion and caste. She doesn't care if you call Her Vishnu, Shiva, or Durga. She won't care if you address Her as Allah or Jehovah.

She's just Herself - a Mother, caring for all - whether or not you believe in Her existence. She'll care even if you are an atheist. That's not the beauty of Hinduism. That's the beauty of God Mother... or whatever you call Her.

She doesn't need a human form, neither a gender; nor does She think like you and me. She's way above. All you can do is to seek Her blessings, addressing Her by whatever name you want. She's there, here, and everywhere. Omnipresent. And caring for all.

I love Her and Her manifestations. You just can't imagine how She can appear to reassure you, from within your own circle... and you won't even know it.

You think ABC helped you. It's not true. You and I cannot help anyone. We revel and take pride that we assisted someone. In reality, it is the God, using you to help others. I don't take credit. You should not either. As such, we trade.

Looking at the bigger picture, it's not me who does things. It's the God. Call Her using any name, use any shape you can imagine. She'll reply. Maybe not in the way you want, but She'll reply.

That should clear out the confusion about being Vaishnav, Shaivite, or Shakta. Learn to see beyond limits of shapes, sizes, and gender. You can never ever define God. Nor should you attempt to define Her/Him.

Best app for Android phones - Clean Master from Cheetah Mobile

After five years of testing different multipurpose apps for Android maintenance, I realize Clean Master from Cheetah Mobile is the best maintenance app for Android phones. Not only maintenance, Clean Master offers you much more than you can expect from a single app. For a while, it felt the "All in One for Android" is good. But turned out it leaves out add-ins even after you remove it. What is available in single code in Clean Master of Cheetah Mobile, is available as add-ins in All in One app for Android. When you uninstall All in One app, the add-ins continue to run in RAM. I could not find any method to remove them as they were not visible in any App Managers. I had to do a factory reset and that was when my doubts were removed and I acknowledged Clean Master of Cheetah Mobile is the best option for Android phones. Lock Screen Here are features at a glance. Let's start from Lock Screen. Replacing your phone lock screen, you can set up Clean Master Lock Scr

Significance or Meaning of Swaha and Ithi in Sanskrit Mantras

You might have noticed that all mantras begin with the sound of "OM". What you might have ignored or failed to notice that mantras in Sanskrit end with "ithi" or "swaha". Some of you end mantras with just a "namah". Not to scare you, but if you fail to use "ithi" at end of each mantra or at the very end of any stotra (hymn), the mantra & related offering (sacrifice or prasadam) doesn't reach the god being prayed. The word "ithi" marks the end of mantra, and urges gods to accept whatever you are offering. The word "swaha" is used more in havans (rituals were you put offerings/prasad directly into fire). Since people put offerings into fire while saying "swaha", many of us associate it with "destruction". When anyone says "sab kuch swaha ho gaya (everything became swaha)", it does and should not be concluded that he or she lost things. It is a wrong notion that associates &qu

Analysis of Mahabharata Characters - Bhishma

Bhishma is one of the powerful characters of the epic, Mahabharata that contains and shows a pious way of life to the mortals living on earth. I am starting this Analysis of Mahabharata Characters with Bhishma as he is the oldest character in the epic/saga and has tremendous influence on the other characters of Mahabharata. Bhishma was the son of king Shantanu and Ganga (the river Ganges in female form). Bhishma was considered one of the eight Vasus (rishis) who had to take birth on earth due to a curse. Before we analyze the character, let us take a quick look at the story of Bhishma according to the Mahabharata. Background Of Bhishma Bhismha is considered one of the eight Vasus who stole a cow named Kamadhenu from a sage. When the sage cursed them to take birth as humans, all Vasus asked for his forgiveness. The sage, for seven Vasus who helped the main Vasu to steal the cow, reduced the curse to death just after birth. However, the main Vasu who actually stole the cow was
