    Practical Explanation ( For Example ) :- `1st of all can you tell me every single seconds detail from that time when you born ?? ( i need every seconds detail ?? that what- what you have thought and done on every single second )

    can you tell me every single detail of your `1 cheapest Minute Or your whole hour, day, week, month, year or your whole life ??

    if you are not able to tell me about this life then what proof do you have that you didn't forget your past ? and that you will not forget this present life in the future ?

    that is Fact that Supreme Lord Krishna exists but we posses no such intelligence to understand him.
    there is also next life. and i already proved you that no scientist, no politician, no so-called intelligent man in this world is able to understand this Truth. cuz they are imagining. and you cannot imagine what is god, who is god, what is after life etc.
    _______
    for example :Your father existed before your birth. you cannot say that before your birth your father don,t exists.

    So you have to ask from mother, "Who is my father?" And if she says, "This gentleman is your father," then it is all right. It is easy.
    Otherwise, if you makes research, "Who is my father?" go on searching for life; you'll never find your father.

    ( now maybe...maybe you will say that i will search my father from D.N.A, or i will prove it by photo's, or many other thing's which i will get from my mother and prove it that who is my Real father.{ So you have to believe the authority. who is that authority ? she is your mother. you cannot claim of any photo's, D.N.A or many other things without authority ( or ur mother ).

    if you will show D.N.A, photo's, and many other proofs from other women then your mother. then what is use of those proofs ??} )

    same you have to follow real authority. "Whatever You have spoken, I accept it," Then there is no difficulty. And You are accepted by Devala, Narada, Vyasa, and You are speaking Yourself, and later on, all the acaryas have accepted. Then I'll follow.
    I'll have to follow great personalities. The same reason mother says, this gentleman is my father. That's all. Finish business. Where is the necessity of making research? All authorities accept Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. You accept it; then your searching after God is finished.

    Why should you waste your time?
    _______
    all that is you need is to hear from authority ( same like mother ). and i heard this truth from authority " Srila Prabhupada " he is my spiritual master.
    im not talking these all things from my own.
    ___________

    in this world no `1 can be Peace full. this is all along Fact.

    cuz we all are suffering in this world 4 Problems which are Disease, Old age, Death, and Birth after Birth.

    tell me are you really happy ?? you can,t be happy if you will ignore these 4 main problem. then still you will be Forced by Nature.
    ___________________

    if you really want to be happy then follow these 6 Things which are No illicit sex, No gambling, No drugs ( No tea & coffee ), No meat-eating ( No onion & garlic's )

    5th thing is whatever you eat `1st offer it to Supreme Lord Krishna. ( if you know it what is Guru parama-para then offer them food not direct Supreme Lord Krishna )

    and 6th " Main Thing " is you have to Chant " hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare ".
    _______________________________
    If your not able to follow these 4 things no illicit sex, no gambling, no drugs, no meat-eating then don,t worry but chanting of this holy name ( Hare Krishna Maha-Mantra ) is very-very and very important.

    Chant " hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare " and be happy.

    if you still don,t believe on me then chant any other name for 5 Min's and chant this holy name for 5 Min's and you will see effect. i promise you it works And chanting at least 16 rounds ( each round of 108 beads ) of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra daily.
    ____________
    Here is no Question of Holy Books quotes, Personal Experiences, Faith or Belief. i accept that Sometimes Faith is also Blind. Here is already Practical explanation which already proved that every`1 else in this world is nothing more then Busy Foolish and totally idiot.
    _________________________
    Source(s):
    every `1 is already Blind in this world and if you will follow another Blind then you both will fall in hole. so try to follow that person who have Spiritual Eyes who can Guide you on Actual Right Path. ( my Authority & Guide is my Spiritual Master " Srila Prabhupada " )
    _____________
    if you want to see Actual Purpose of human life then see this link : ( www.asitis.com {Bookmark it })
    read it complete. ( i promise only readers of this book that they { he/she } will get every single answer which they want to know about why im in this material world, who im, what will happen after this life, what is best thing which will make Human Life Perfect, and what is perfection of Human Life. ) purpose of human life is not to live like animal cuz every`1 at present time doing 4 thing which are sleeping, eating, sex & fear. purpose of human life is to become freed from Birth after birth, Old Age, Disease, and Death.

    Found many of his books on amazon india. He had strong nationalist views although has a "secular" tone at places which may not go down well with present generation of sanghis.

    World's oldest' 48-feet long sleeping Buddha statue unearthed in Haripur district
    [​IMG]

    A centuries-old statue of the sleeping Buddha was unearthed during excavations near Bhamala Stupa in Haripur district, DawnNews reported on Thursday.

    Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Directorate of Archaeology And Museums Director Dr Abdul Samad said,"The 48-feet long sleeping Buddha's statue dates back to the third century which makes it the world's oldest sleeping Buddha statue."

    He told DawnNews that archaeologists found the statue, with its head intact, during excavations near Bhamala Stupa.

    "We have discovered more than 500 Buddha-related objects during excavations in addition to the 48-feet long sleeping Buddha,” he said.

    The latest discoveries by the archaeologists have opened new chapters in the history of the ancient Taxila valley civilisation.

    “This is one of the few sites in the world to have the cruciform Stupa which was reserved for Buddha himself,” Samad had earlier told Dawn.

    "Kumbh Mela - I am happy to inform that Kumbh Mela has been inscribed as the Intangible Cultural Heritage of humanity by UNESCO. This is the second such inscription in the last two years. Yoga was inscribed in 2016."

    TBH, we should stop being proud by such announcements. But instead inherently proud of our culture. We don't have to wait for some global agency to tell how beautiful our culture is. So, if no global agency gives certification, is it any less great?

    There was entire gang who wanted to destroy Khumbh Mela forever. So for me its not about global agency giving certification, its about there will be less propaganda.

    No, no. I didn't mean this point in particular. I meant it in general. We get over-excited by any +ve announcements made by global rating agencies, as if we are waiting for them to certify us.

    True that. I also don't get carried away with global agencies appreciating us.
    I just find it another blow to anti-hindu maniacs after making Yog acceptance worldwide.
    I might give credit to Modi and Sangh.

    Kumbh Mela is not heritage of "humanity", it's heritage of Hindus. Half the world population infected with abrahamisms would like to see kumbh mela gone if they can help it. We don't want pretas handing out bibles at kumbh mela becuse it's "heritage of humanity".

    The Vaikunta Ekadasi festival was conducted in Vaishnavite temples across the state.

    Thousands of devotees today thronged the famous Lord Ranganathaswamy temple in nearby Srirangam on the occasion of Vaikunta Ekadasi festival which was celebrated with religious fervour.

    Adorned with glittering pearls and diamonds, the ‘utsava’ idol of Namperumal was brought out of the ‘sanctum sanctorum’ and later taken through the Paramapada Vaasal, the celestial gateway to heaven, at around 5 a.m.

    Devotees from various parts of the country, including from neighbouring Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh, thronged the temple, considered as the foremost among the 108 sacred Vaishnavite shrines on the occasion and offered worship.

    About 3,000 police personnel were deployed for security and regulation of traffic in this temple town.

    Large number of devotees thronged Sarangapaniswamy temple in Kumbakonam on the occasion.

    The Vaikunta Ekadasi festival was conducted in Vaishnavite temples across the state.

    ******************
    Vishnu Purana, like all major Puranas, attributes its author to be sage Veda Vyasa. The actual author(s) and date of its composition are unknown and contested. Estimates range of its composition range from 1st millennium BCE to early 2nd-millennium CE. The text was likely composed and rewritten in layers over a period of time, with roots possibly in ancient 1st-millennium BCE texts that have not survived into the modern era

    The first Amsha (part) of Vishnu Purana presents cosmology, dealing with the creation, maintenance and destruction of the universe

    The reverence and the worship of Vishnu is described in 22 chapters of the first part as the means for liberation, along with the profuse use of the synonymous names of Vishnu such as Hari, Janardana, Madhava, Achyuta, Hrishikesha and others.

    Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that Sree Sankaracharya culturally integrated India from all directions.

    The thoughts of the Sankaracharya contain elements from all cultures in the world. His thought answered all philosophical questions pertaining to the world and envisions everyone as part of a single family, Mr. Chouhan said at Sringeri Mutt in Kalady, Adi Sankara’s birthplace, on Friday.

    Mr. Chouhan said Sree Sankara’s philosophy professes universal unity in such a way that it effaces all narrow viewpoints. “This helps create better people, society, nation, and world,” Mr. Chouhan said.

    He was at Kalady to collect soil and metal ahead of erecting a 108-ft tall statue of Adi Sankara at Omkareswar in Madhya Pradesh. He received soil and metal from heads of mutts present at Sringeri. BJP State president Kummanam Rajasekharan was present at the event.

    Mr. Chouhan also flagged off ‘Adi Sankara Sandesa Vahini’ mobile museum from Sankaracharya’s home, Adi Sankara Nilayam, at Veliyanat in Arakkunnam. An Ekatma yatra, announcing the intrinsic unity of all animate beings, will travel through Kalady, Udupi, Dharmasthala, and Sringeri, in the run up to the statue construction.

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to lay foundation for the statue on January 22.
