I took this vikruti test here and the results were as follows:
Vata 48
Pitta 28
Kapha 24

I'm just curious if anyone has any experience balancing these out, or if anyone has checked their vikruti at all.

1:13 am - Question................

Does anyone know if there is an electronic text of
The Gita online?

I am very curious to read the Gita, but am not sure
where to begin. Are the several different translations?
If so, what translation would you recommend?

Peace & Blessings........

Greetings to everyone,

Recently, a community I belonged to, om_nama_shivaya, was deleted. It was bittersweet; while the posts were not all that frequent, they were lovely and insightful.

In my search for communities whose interests include yoga, or shiva, for example, I found a Gwyneth Paltrow Fan Club and many "Final Fantasy" communities. So you can see, it is not easy to find a place that suits me. I am hoping to read and contribute, and most importantly, learn. Thank you for letting me get a feel for this community. If you need me, I'll be over there.

9:47 am - thank you

how bout getting off these antibiotics
how bout stopping eating when I'm full up
how bout them transparent dangling carrots
how bout that ever elusive kudo

thank you india
thank you terror
thank you disillusionment
thank you frailty
thank you consequence
thank you thank you silence

how bout me not blaming you for everything
how bout me enjoying the moment for once
how bout how good it feels to finally forgive you
how bout grieving it all one at a time

thank you india
thank you terror
thank you disillusionment
thank you frailty
thank you consequence
thank you thank you silence

the moment I let go of it was the moment
I got more than I could handle
the moment I jumped off of it
was the moment I touched down

how bout no longer being masochistic
how bout remembering your divinity
how bout unabashedly bawling your eyes out
how bout not equating death with stopping

thank you india
thank you providence
thank you disillusionment
thank you nothingness
thank you clarity
thank you thank you silence

current mood: thankful

6:35 pm - A community specifically focused on chanting

Hi I want to let everyone know there is a community now devoted to inspiring ourselves in the practice of chanting. We all know Krishna Das teaches and shares the benefits of chanting to all he sings for. Let's all do the same and motivate ourselves to chant.

"All that lives, lives forever. Only the shell, the perishable passes away. The spirit is without end... Eternal... Deathless..."

Is this quote really from the Bhagavad Gita? I love it. It's beautiful.

The Gita talks about letting go of all desires, how is that possible unless one becomes a brahmachari and lives an impoverished life? I mean what's wrong with falling in love with someone and caring for someone? why does one have to give up on love in order to give him or herself fully to Krishna? I have tried and I cannot do it, it seems inhuman. If I wasn't inlove i'd be unhappy, depressed and miserable.I'd have nothing to look forward to each day, it's love that keeps me healthy and alive.Afterall doesn't Krisha want us to be happy, isn't that the ultimate goal?

To see the world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.

Indifferent to gain or loss,
to victory or defeat,
prepare yourself for battle
and do not succumb to sin.

This is philosophy's wisdom;
now hear the wisdom of yoga.
Armed with this understanding,
you will shatter your karmic bonds.

On this path no effort is wasted,
no gain is ever reversed;
even a little of this practice
will shelter you from great sorrow.

Resolute understanding
is single-pointed, Arjuna;
but the thoughts of the irresolute
are man-branched and endless.

Foolish men talk of religion
in cheap, sentimental words,
leaning on the scriptures: "God
speaks here, and speaks here alone."

Driven by desire for pleasure
and power, caught up in ritual,
they strive to gain heaven; but rebirth
is the only result of their striving.

They are lured by their own desires,
besotted by the scriptures' words;
their minds have not been made clear
by the practice of meditation.

The scriptures dwell in duality.
Be beyond all opposites, Arjuna:
anchored in the real, and free
from all thoughts of wealth and comfort.

As unnecessary as a well is
to a village on the banks of a river,
so unnecessary are all scriptures
to someone who has seen the truth.

You have the right to your actions,
but never to your actions' fruits.
Act for the action's sake.
And do not be attached to inaction.
