The ability to consider alternatives to tradition or belief helped science discover quanta. Perhaps the NRA may one day soon discover the courage to consider alternatives to immediate deadly force as the only apt defense, always.


He who obeys the Messenger has indeed obeyed Allah, but he who turns away, then we have not sent you as a watcher over them.“

Quran 4:80

Yes, that is the truth, and it in my view is true too that Hadiths, even when not direct orders from The Messenger, even now may example how The Messenger obeyed, and so be helpful as secondary or tertiary sources for any who hope to obey Allah as The Messenger did. (A good example is ever helpful for those who wish to learn, surely, even when events or persons or sayings are described,–not by Allah nor by The Messenger–but by eye witnesses, or even by middlemen working for factual history, as GOD wills.)

Now, this day, does that mean each muslim does well now and tomorrow to obey Allah exactly and only as The Prophet obeyed? Perhaps so. At any rate, it is without doubt that when Allah wants originals, not a copy, He knows how to make them, too

NB On thus 19th day of Ramadan 2016, this is not a reminder; it’s but a consideration of a reminder: Adonai echad

Peace in, akhi

Day 16, Ramadan 2016

There is One Lord.

Swami during an interview, clarified that there is no brand or trade mark for Yoga. Yoga is only one,  and that is Presence of God. This is an exercise for mind, and not physical involvement.

Many people give brand name for Yoga, and derive commercial benefits. They add more adjectives, and activities with the so called yoga, until it is about fame and money, not Yoga.

The best yoga for one who loves GOD, is  to Love Hum ever-increasingly, without any preconditions, with total submission. In this, the “Thrikarana” should work in unison.  The “Thrikarana”, are the Mind,  the Speech, and the Actions. All these three should be  based on Pure Love.  When you are engaged in your life in such a noble way, the Lord will guide you to reach Him, which is the ultimate goal of Yoga.
