TRUE Spirituality

Spirituality is a Way of Life. It is Not something ‘Hanging in the Air.’ It Affects Life. Well, True Spirituality does, anyway. Unlike the Bogus kind. This latter is Full of Hot Air. And Hot Air being Light and Filling, there is lots of it, but of little worth.

When Somebody says: “Love is All You Need,” I call that a spirituality. And So it Is. But of Little Use. I am Not saying ‘A little.’


I shall pose two examples, and ask for answers from the Bogus Spirituals. Case one. The ISIS. Just HOW do they propose to bring in ‘Love’ into this situation? Below, An ISIS Beheading. Image from Internet.

ISIS beheading

While waiting for them to answer, I say that My Method is Love too. But in My type of Love, Love would mean:

  • Take Enough steps to Efficiently put an end to their leadership, (and that would be No small job),
  • Taking Steps to Disarm the ISIS, and
  • Address the Reasons that give Rise to Militant groups.

If the ‘Love is All You Need’ group wants to say that This is what they would have done, that cannot be allowed. Spend Your time and Energy to Specify what You mean by Love. From what they speak, it sounds as if waving a White Flag would be enough.


How do these proponents of ‘Love is All You Need’ intend to apply it to the Case of the 71 year old Nun who was Gang Raped, or the Girl who had Acid thrown on her face? Here’s a group of them below.

Acid Attack Victims

Or, in a heretofore Unmentioned incident, How does texting ‘Love is All You Need’ going to work for a Family whose 13 year old is being Stalked, Molested, and Getting threats of getting Raped Again? This is a Real Example from the Indian news. Read it here:



Love is Sweaty Business. It is Bloody Business. Recall Jesus on the Cross. Love gets its hands dirty, and is to be found rolling in the Mire struggling to Rescue someone. Love is Not staying Pretty-Pretty and saying ‘Love is All You Need.’

If one were ready to Love this 13 year old, then the person would have to be ready to Keep Vigil with the Family, Accompany the Child on a Round the Clock basis, Insist and Try to Arrange for the police to Incarcerate the Culprits. Because, So long as they are free, the Child cannot be Safe.

But it does not stop here. Those who are threatening her have ‘friends.’ They will step up the Attack. And that brings Us to Getting Our Sleeping ‘justice’ department to awaken and give some stiff sentences, so that the Miscreants would have Some Fear instilled in them.

As Neither Society, nor the Justice Department, Nor Anything has reached ‘Workable’ Standards, Love would mean Starting from Scratch.

It might, and Most Probably Will mean Getting Beaten up Yourself, and Putting Your Family in Danger. We might become Very Holy-Like, and Pull out of the Whole fight saying ‘I Love my Family, I do not want to Endanger them, So that is Love too.’

We may Not see the TAJ MAHAL in the Future!



The ISIS did it some time ago. They destroyed numerous [ should we say Numberless? 😦 ] historical artifacts in many places. A screen shot for the search, below:

A little before this, Hindu extremists pulled down the Babri Masjid.

AYODHYA, INDIA – DECEMBER 8: Paramilitary police position themselves on a hill overlooking the ruins of the 16th century Babri mosque (foreground) 08 December 1992 in Ayodhya, India. Behind is the temple being built to Hindu warrior deity Lord Rama. Police took control of the disputed religious site two days after Hindu activists demolished the mosque. (Photo credit should read DOUGLAS E. CURRAN/AFP/Getty Images)

Above: The first four are pictures during the demolition, and the last, at the end of it.

It is said that centuries before, Babar had destroyed a temple that had stood in that place, and built the mosque there. I heard this from a person, whose word I used to believe, who had visited the monument after the mosque was destroyed, and had seen Hindu idols on the back wall of the masjid!

…Only, if there are really those age old idols on the wall, it would not have been pulled down by the Hindus, and they would have posted those images for all the world to see, thus gaining a Huge amount of sympathy. Thus…

Being a Christian, I condemn and criticise the various Peoples and Civilizations destroyed by us in the past.

And now it seems to be the turn of Poor Old TAJ MAHAL. It is being accused of Not being Indian in Culture, and other things. Mind You, this may be a long time away. But the foundations are being laid, particularly by the members of India’s ruling party, particularly by ‘Yogi Adityanath,’ the chief minister of UP in India, where the Taj is!



They are backpedalling, of course. But these waters run Deep. I wouldn’t trust them an inch.

Come see the Taj within the next 5 years or so.

‘government’ rowdies!


The police force, I hear, was formed to provide Jobs for the Uneducated.

They also prove to be the Gundas (rowdies) of the government.

Indian policeman beating civilians

Till Useless DOGS like these are Beaten up and removed from service, I SHALL NOT RESPECT THE INDIAN POLICE FORCE.

I came across this Wonder comment from Patricia @ https://newbloggycat.com/ – which is Most Apt, and Shows What the People think about these fellows:

Very disturbing! Perhaps they should be known as lice force….LOL (•̀o•́)ง’

Interestingly, the Hindi caption in Facebook, from which this has been taken, says:

आधुनिक हथियारों से लैस खूंखार ISIS आतंकियों के छक्के छुड़ाती जांबाज़ भारतीय पुलिस ।।

Which means: Our Lively Indian police beating the **** out of the dangerous, equipped-with-deadly-weapons ISIS.

Thoo. This means Spitting. Ok, Yuck.


Syria and air strikes

The full title is:

Eight things people get wrong about Syria and air strikes.

And this is a Share of an Article from BBC. Do Peruse.

NOT an air strike but ISIS car bomb

Not the result of air strikes but an explosion caused by a car bomb planted by the Islamic State group in Kobani.

Am Astonished

Am ASTONISHED that this post, (which I had put up in Facebook a few days ago), has had ONLY 14 views.

IS Auctions Captured Children for Sex

After all this speaks about Innocents being Sold for Sex.

If this had been about, say, Elephants, at least a 100 would have clicked on it, and commented on it.

I am NOT concerned about Who follows me, Likes or gives Comments on my Posts.

If We are Not Enraged by such Sick News, and Act upon it,

My Tweets to O P Chaturvedi


One O P Chaturvedi ‏<@opchaturvedi44 @mazhar_jafri @babayesudas> had tweeted this to me.

अपने हममजहब हत्यारे नही दीखते क्या जनाव?गरीब मुस्सलिम के असली दुशमन आप जैसे कट्टर ही है

In effect, he asks Why We don’t see the Killers in our own religious groups.

And a Valid question it is too. Below, my Responses:


My Dear OP, I am a Christian. But You should know that I Criticize my own Christian leadership QUITE A LOT too.

Please visit https://lovehappinessandpeace.wordpress.com/ and see my posts for this. Even now I am writing a post against the pope.

Bec others are guilty does NOT mean I am Not guilty. #modi shd accept his hand in the #godhra carnage.


Christian leadership, starting with the Vatican, should publicly, and repeatedly Apologize for The Inquisition, the pope’s Silence (Whimperings not accepted!) during the nazi atrocities, the Paedophile mess, Violence in Ireland and in other places, etc.

Similarly the Non-catholic Christian leadership. Again, their Greed for Ireland, faraway Falklands! To show that I am not writing these things for the first time, pl read: https://lovehappinessandpeace.wordpress.com/2014/08/08/extreme-love-for-money-on-part-of-catholic-church/

Now for the ISIS, Boko Haram, etc. I consider these the Most Barbaric. ISIS, etc, killing not only others, but also children of their own religion, as the 130+ at Peshawar.

You as a Hindu, how do You feel threatened by Christians? If You have problems, You have the police. But We Christians, running Hospitals and Schools for EVERYONE, face Fear and problems in India.

KANDHAMAL Christians, 10s of thousands, cannot return to their lands. One image is given below, taken from the Internet.


We face re-conversions, #bjp says it has no hand in re-conversions. But #bjp did not come to power without support of rss, etc.

We Christians, even after 2,000 years in India, are just 2.6%. Hindus are 80%+. What is the problem? So, Each of Us has to Clean his own house. Even if the Neighbour’s house is dirty, the smell will come to US!

So Help Clean Your house too, as I do in mine. Good day and Regards.


Finally, some Words of Essence from a Pope!

From the time of my Youth, and in about the last 50 years, this is the FIRST TIME that a Pope has Spoken Sociological Truths. Kudos, Francis. Need More of this from You.

Hope Other community and religious heads, particularly in India, would have the gumption to admit this.


Came across the following site, reference below, with the title: ‘The Pope has a message for Christian Fundamentalists: You’re No Better than ISIS!‘ in Facebook this morning.

Do not agree with All the views presented there. But!

It starts with this:

The Pope gave liberals an early Christmas Present this week, on a flight back from Turkey…by drawing a parallel between Christian Fundamentalists and Islamic terror groups such as ISIS.

When a journalist attempted to draw the Pope into yet another condemnation of the world’s 2 billion Muslims on the basis of the actions of a few thousand – the pontiff dropped a logic bomb.

“You just can’t say that, just as you can’t say that all Christians are fundamentalists. We have our share of them (fundamentalists). All religions have these little groups,” Pope Francis said.

Violence, and the Christian

Everybody in their Right Mind Hates Violence. And Everybody cries out ‘Peace, Peace, Peace,’ Everybody says: “Down with Violence.” Can a Christian Use Violence? Even to me the question sounds peculiar! But it is a query that Many People have! And, I have used the word Christian as I am a Christian Priest, and cannot really answer it for those of Other religions.

Violence is taken as a Dirty word. As far as possible, it Has to be Avoided, of course. And its use in Aggression, Attack or Offence is Never Right.

On the other hand, the use of Force, even Armed Force – which is Nothing else but Violence – is Allowed in Defence. Violence is Not the Issue, but Aggression is. That is the essence of this article.

Defence is something ‘Of the Moment.’ If I am beaten up, I cannot come home, pick up a stick, and go back and beat up my attacker. That is Not Defence, that it Attack. And Violence in this situation would be Wrong. That is what the Lord calls ‘Vengeance’ in the Bible.

At the same time, if the fellow(s) are lying in wait and in ambush, it would not only be Necessary, but Right, to Defend Yourself and Yours. You would have to Encircle them and put them out of commission.

The example that springs to mind for this is that of Red Indian attacks on small settlements. In a situation like that, Proper Defence would have been to Fire the Shots First, if possible. I see No Wisdom in getting Your house set on fire, just because they had not fired the first shot! For background notes on this Please see below.

The Red Indian had been cheated, and No Proper Settlements/Arrangements were made for them. This was Violence against them. And just because certain peoples had advanced with reference to Iron weapons and guns, etc, they had seen fit to Enslave, carry away, and Sell practically whole nations. That Same method of Force and Violence is used in running houses of Prostitution today.

Going back to one more example of Offence (first) as the Best Defence, I would say that the Idea that the Law officer in the Old West was supposed to draw only after the ruffian had done so was Idiotic and Wrong. Whether a man volunteered to be a Law officer or whether he took a salary, How Long did We expect him to keep up the speed of Draw? When he got old, what was he supposed to? Be the Victim of Revenge? We have held the lives of Our Law men cheap. We made them Spectator Sport. It was Criminal on the part of those who drew up such laws.

I am not saying the above with reference to the Ferguson affair. Darren Wilson firing off TWELVE LIVE ROUNDS at unarmed Civilians was Criminal.

In the situation that followed, the mere presence of police force armed with semi-automatic weapons and APC-like vehicles where Unarmed Civilians are gathered is Violence. This is Aggression.


Was just watching the movie, ‘The Next Karate Kid.’ Two things there are Noteworthy. One, that physical instructor says at one point: “If You find somebody throwing a Candy wrapper, make them Eat it,” or words to that effect. I am Not commending or suggesting Violence like this. This is Stupidity. The other is the instance where Julie goes into a store to buy some things, and there are three men there, who set their dog upon her, and later come out and try to Grab her. Here I would I ask YOU a question: “If You were the Girl’s Guardian, What would YOU have done at that point?”

If one could at least Run and Escape, the discussion would be over. But would three men let a Young and Beautiful Girl Escape? The question is Not whether We know how to fight. Rather, it is, Whether We think pulling up a few chairs and starting a Counselling session would work here! Are these Impossible scenarios? Let us Not be Naive.

Came across the travails of one Gopika, who travelled by train and had some Nasty experiences. Upon Great Insistence from her and her companions, police did arrive, but went back after scolding her and her companions! To read her account, please click here.

I have read some Great peace-lovers writing just How they had allowed themselves to be beaten up, and never raised a finger. As I said, Great, Super, Wonderful and Marvellous! But the Question comes when one of Our Family members is Threatened. As Julie was.


Next, with regard to War. Do We Really think hitler would have stopped his mass murder, his ethnic cleansing, with just Germany? Had he not attacked even that giant, russia? If Everybody had gone around waving White flags, do We think he would have desisted? What about saddam hussein bombing the Kurds, People of his Own land? Or when putin is sending tanks into Ukraine, are We to start making passionate speeches in the UN? putin is going to stop by that? 🙂

Or is the ISIS going to lay down its arms if the pope, the dalai lama or the shankaracharya asks them?


I am Not saying that We Stock up on guns. Nor am I saying that You take up arms against Your own government. Interestingly, The BEST way of protesting against one’s own government is through Absolutely Non-Violent and Peaceful means.


Let us now come to The Time when the Hebrews returned to their Homeland. They had dwelt there after the time of Moses, circa 1250 BC, to the Fall of Jerusalem, circa 587 BC. That makes it about 700 years. From about 587 BC to about 445 BC, they had been Slaves By the Rivers of Babylon, first to the Assyrians, then to the Neo-Babylonians, and at the end to the Persians. It was Cyrus of Persia who gave them permission to return. Prior to all this, they had been slaves in Egypt for four hundred odd years. Altogether, they had been Slaves, since the time of Abraham, to the time of Christ, for Centuries. No Wonder they hated the Idea of Slavery, and that they still do! These details are just by way of Background and Interest.

Safety, in those days, meant living within Walls. The crops were raised outside the Walls, and if attacked, they lost, at the most, the Crops. So, upon the return from slavery, building the Walls of Jerusalem was one of their priorities. And Naturally their ‘neighbours’ did not want those walls raised. The Hebrews would build, and their enemies would pull them down. What were they to do? Build or Fight?

sword in one hand n built w other neh 4.17

What is More Important is What they were Inspired to do. Nehemiah, whom We can call the leader of the Hebrews at that point, writes: “Our enemies thought (of) Killing Us and Putting an End to our Work. …So I armed the People with Swords, Spears and BowsEven those who carried building materials worked with one hand and kept a Weapon in the other.” (Excerpts from Nehemiah 4:11-17). You know, they were not there at some Fancy Dress Contest. Those Weapons, were to be Used, if Necessary. Image: www.artbible.net


It becomes a question of giving the evil minded a little Thrashing, or handing over Your Hard Earned money to ruffians and see Your Family Suffer Want. It could also be a case of Your coming away with a Child in the Womb. If You Fight there, Society would say, “You were Violent.” The church would say, “No Abortion.” And I Agree with it too. So, Let society say what it will. Defend Yourself, with Force, if Necessary.

As Mr. Miyagi had said, “Fight to Win.” If You had to fight, and If You had to be Violent, in Defence, No need to have a party, but have a Good night’s sleep, and Carry on with Your Life!

Social Creatures

ISIS beheading-of-kurd

1. Is this Not COWARDICE? Two #ISIS with mcn guns, one killing a tied man, ALL COVERED FACES?

2. Behaviour of #ISIS more BARBARIC than photo. A Search for #isisbeheadings gives unimaginably gruesome pictures.

3. News is not for just Reading and Listening to. It is OUR world. If We cannot even TWEET for others, Who will STAND for US?

4. At Least Tweet: I Agree, Disagree, I Support, etc. Let us become Social Creatures. I condemn what #ISIS is doing.
