One who spends more that what he earns, ( gets a loan to meet out his expenses), will lose his dignity, lose his mind and will be considered by all as thief in whatever he goes.
He will be a sinner in all his births and will be called bad even by the Good , despite all his other good Characteristics.
What his mental would be, when he faces the creditors?
Kambar, the Great Tamil Poet, in his Ramayana, answers this.
‘Like a fish that has taken in poison; Like the wax near a hot flame; Like the toad that got caught between the venomous jaws of a snake; When the brave arrows of Lord Rama flew in the war field. Ravana’s feared and panicked as of the victim’s position in the above situations that can be compared to the person in a debt’
The Pillars of Hercules (Latin: Columnae Herculis, Greek: Ἡράκλειοι Στῆλαι, Arabic: أعمدة هرقل, Spanish: Columnas de Hércules) was the phrase that was applied in Antiquity to the promontories that flank the entrance to the Strait of Gibraltar. The northern Pillar is the Rock of Gibraltar (now part of the British overseas territory of Gibraltar). A corresponding North African peak not being predominant, the identity of the southern Pillar has been disputed through history, with the two most likely candidates being Monte Hacho inCeuta and Jebel Musa in Morocco.
Lord Rama’s Empire extended throughout the world.
The landmass then called Gondwana.
“At the time of Atlantis and Rama, the Mediterranean was a large and fertile valley. This ancient civilization, pre-dating dynastic Egypt, was known as the Osirian Civilization. The Nile river came out of Africa, as it does today, and was called the River Stix. However, instead of flowing into the Mediterranean Sea at the Nile Delta in northern Egypt, it continued into the valley, and then turned westward to flow in the deepest part of the Mediterranean Valley where it created a large lake and then flowed out between Malta and Sicily, and south of Sardinia into the Atlantic at Gibraltar (the Pillars of Hercules). When Atlantis was destroyed in a cataclysmic upheaval, this cataclysmic change in the Atlantic slowly flooded the Mediterranean Basin, destroying the Osirian’s great cities and forcing them to move to higher ground. This theory helps explain the strange megalithic remains found throughout the Mediterranean
Both Greeks and Romans habitually tried to understand the religions of India by trying to fit them as far as possible into Greco-Roman categories. Deities in particular were spoken of, not in Indian but in Greek terms and called by Greek names. Thus Shiva was identified as ‘Dionysos’, and Hare Krishna as ‘ Hercules’.
In a passage of the Rig Veda, Vac is praised as a divine being. Vac is omnipotent, moves amongst divine beings, and carries the great gods, Mitra, Varuna, Indra and Agni, within itself. The doctrine of Vac teaches that “all gods live from Vac, also all demi-gods, animals and people. Vac is the eternal being, it is the first-born of the eternal law, mother of the Vedas and navel of immortality.” Vedic Aryans attached such great importance to the spoken word that one who could not correctly pronounce Sanskrit was called barbar (meaning stammering). ‘
Hence one should not be too sure of the incredibility of the view of those who conceive that there is continuity between the parts about the Pillars of Hercules and the parts about India, and that in this way the ocean is one. As further evidence in favor of this they quote the case of elephants, a species occurring in each of these extreme regions, suggesting that the common characteristic of these extremes is explained by their continuity. Also those mathematicians who try to calculate the size of the earth’s circumference arrive at the figure only that the earth’s mass is spherical, but also that as compared with the stars it is not of great size. 400,000 stades. This indicates not only that the earth’s mass is spherical, but also that as compared with the stars it is not of great size…
Most pre-Ptolemaic Greek geographers did accept that Africa was bounded on all sides by the sea, except where it joined Asia. Ptolemy, however, supposed that not far below the Horn of Africa, the continent trended to the east, eventually joining the Chinese mainland and making of the Indian Ocean a landlocked sea. He may have been influenced in this by the passage from De Caelo, where Aristotle suggests that the presence of elephants in both Asia and Africa might indicate that the two continents were contiguous. Ptolemy compounded his error by postulating the existence of a huge “Southern Continent,” a Terra Australis, to the south of Africa. This imaginary continent did not finally disappear from European maps until the early 18th century.
Megasthanes took the legend of Krishna to Greece and had it incorporated in Greek Legends.
See the excerpts towards the close of the Post.
Similarities between Krishna and Hercules.
Krishna’s Killing of Kalinga is similar to Hercules with Hydra.
Balarama Is Hercules.
There is also a view that Balaram is Hercules.
““The Hercules who penetrated so far, the Indians tell us, was a native of their country. He is particularly worshipped by the Suraseni (Shurasena), who have two great cities, Methora (Mathura) and Cleisoborus (Surapura), and the navigable river Jobares (Yamuna), passes through their territories. This Hercules, as Megasthenes asserts, and the Indians themselves assure us, uses the same habit with the Theban Hercules. Many male children, but only one daughter was born to him in India, for he married many women. The daughter’s name was Pandaea, and the land where she was born, and over which Heracles placed her as ruler, was named Pandaea after her.”
It is probable that the symbol of Pillar of Hercules was erected in honor of Lord Krishna even if Balarama was Hercules, Krishna being the most popular of the to brothers.
A Subrhamaya Swamy temple has been in existence since long and it has been renovated in Nadi, Fiji.
The present Siva Subramaniya Swami Temple, located at the Northern end of Nadi Town, is perhaps one of the oldest and well-known temples in Fiji. After years of unremitting devotion by the votaries of this temple and its sacred shrines who came from every part of this Country particularly during its annual weeklong TIRUNALS, the temple grounds still remain hollowed by sacred memories extending over a long avenue of years into the distant past.
When Indians came from India during Indenture, they brought along with them their own tradition and culture including their various modes of religious worship. Of all their cultural and traditional activities, religious worship proved to be the engaging of their attention.
It was the wish of the Hindus of Fiji and T.I.S.I. Sangam in particular to build a temple which should be one of its kind. This wish originated some 15 years ago. And so, many attempts were made since by the various committees especially appointed for this purpose by the Council of Management of the T.I.S.I. Sangam but the times somehow proved unfavourable until year 1991. On September 1991, the ground breaking ceremondy in the presence of Rev. Swami Adhibhavanandaji and Thiru Chainnaiya Gounder (sirdar) Thiru Rama Swamai Naickar and Thiru Krishna Moopnar. Thiru Paramasivan – quantity surveyor, Thiru Venkataiya and Thiru Gyan Waradaraju – building supervisors and Thiru Navin Morarji – engineer agreed to provide their services for free.
During that year, Chairman, Thiru Narayan R.Reddy. left for overseas, such as Australia, New Zealand, Canada, United States and India to raise funds and to meet various officials and people regarding the development of the temple.
In August 1992, the structural work on the main temple was completed. Silpis and painter arrived from India and the outcome of their work was very impressive.
In July 1994, all the idos and poojai requirement arrived from India. Also, the Sivacharya and Gurukkals arrived from India for the Maha Kumbahishegam. The new temple was embarked with a Mahakumbhabishegam held from 11th to 15th July 1994. This most special event took place in the gracious presence of Sri-la-Sri Gurudeva Sivaya Subramaniyaswamigal of Kawai Aadhenam, Hawaii, U.S.A.

Genealogists ,researching into the yet to be born baby of Kate and William of England have a wide range of forefathers for the baby, from Dracula,princes in Romania, to even an Islamic sultan from Seville in Spain, who descended from the Muslim Prophet Mohammed.!
British Royalty is known for licentiousness; it seems that neither are Commoners .
Come to think of it, if we check our ancestry we might land up in even funny and bizarre family Tree!
There one finds, along all Britain’s kings, the sovereigns of Greece, Denmark, Sweden, Russia, Austria, Spain and a good number of German sovereigns. The British family was called Saxe-Coburg-Gotha until 1917, date on which, mired in a war with Germany, it opted for the name Windsor. On the side of the mother-to-be Kate Middleton, on the other hand, there is a majority of commoners. The late “Queen Mum”, the mother of Queen Elizabeth II, and Princess Diana, William’s mother, were not born princesses.
While we have been euphoric over Space Exploration, of Voyagers and landing on the Moon, we know very little about the Sun.
I have posted a blog observing that the information I studied about 50 years back are still being touted as the latest, despite the Scientists declaring, at every Total Solar Eclipse, that they are gathering information about The Sun and will reveal the secrets!
If they have found it, then it is well-kept secret.
In this confusion people do not seem to realize we know very little or next to nothing on Gravity or Electromagnetic Field.
I have posts on this and these are under Astrophysics.
We often mistake Technology or application of Science as Advancement of Theoretical Science.
Refer my posts under Science.
Now in path breaking Find, the reason for the Sun being hotter outside the Sun than the inside.
Onto The Article.
In a Nov. 5, 1997 NASA news conference, Dr. Alan Title said: “We have finally solved a 55 year old puzzle; why is it hundreds of times hotter outside the Sun than inside. The Sun is surrounded by the equivalent of an electric blanket. The blanket is heated by magnetism, however, not by electricity.” What they discovered is the electromagnetic energy fields depicted in the photo.
A Feb. 28, 2001 NASA program, Space Science Update, contained photos and information gathered by the SOHO, IMAGE ad polar satellites. Dr. Craig De Forest, said: “This is what the Sun looks like today. You can see it’s completely covered by active regions. They look like flames all over the surface that were caused by the emergence of new magnetic fields that opposes the direction of the old field. And they’re causing really exciting and dramatic events on the Sun; the largest explosions of the solar system and also profound effects here on Earth”.
What the satellites revealed very vividly is the unnoticed swirling magnetic fields and the electromagnetic energy loops connecting the circular magnetic fields around the high and low pressure areas depicted in the Oct. 17, 1990 Daily Californian newspaper photo over 22 years ago.. Since then many videos have been taken of the visible, vivid electromagnetic field current loops on the Sun. (see Click to see the page one – newspaper article from the Daily CalifornianPage 2
‘At a University of Cal. Berkeley conference in 1995, researchers from Greece described how they monitor Earth’s natural electromagnetic fields to predict quakes. Panaylotis Varotoas of the University of Athens, said: “There is a long–duration electrical anomaly before an earthquake,” and Stanford Researcher Tony Fraser-Smith, reported detecting an unusual surge in electromagnetic activity on the peninsula shortly before the 1989 Loma Prieta quake.
Then in 1990, Dr. Kirsch was Director of the Reuben Science Center when Mr. Patrick Glynn, Program Director of Copley Radio News Service tried to get one of their scientists to participate in a three way discussion of my concept. Dr. Kirsch replied in a letter dated March 14, 1990: “Mr. Chromie’s concept encompasses a number of disciplines including geology, physics and chemistry as well as astronomy. It may be difficult to find someone who is an expert in all of these fields, but we would suggest that you approach some of the researchers he refers to in his letter. These researchers would be ‘experts’ rather than generalists like our staff, and the resulting discussion would reflect up-to-the-minute research information to produce a highly interesting interview for your news service.”
I received the following 3 sentences in an e-mail from Gijs on March 28, 2013.
Magnetism is something we totally forgot. (Since Einstein’s mass came mainstream and by that gravity won the headlines in physics). (Magnetism as driving factor behind many things is rediscovered aka emerging very fast in physics)
Imagine the progress that could have been made in science since 1978 if the scientists seriously began considering the concept of magnetism I have been trying to convince them is as important as they now recognize! For instance, I have received letters from the Editorial Director, Tim Chelling, of our local station KCS-TV, dated Feb. 12, 1979, stating “Thank you for your letter of Jan. 22 regarding electrical energy and other mysteries of physics.”
Walter Sullivan, Science Editor of The New York Times, in a letter dated April 18, 1979, wrote “Thank you for your letter sharing with us your ideas on the role of electromagnetism in the solar system.”
In a letter dated June 23, 1980, Pamela Cantori of the program Real People, wrote: “I have passed this information along to the head researcher of “Speak Up, America” and they will be researching it for the show”
