Shiva Mahapurana Episode 1

[PADA: Some of this is a little mixed up from the Vaishnava version, while some parts of it fit accurately, but its interesting for a few of us at least. It makes a lot of sense that God would have a specific incarnation to manage some of the things going on in this material world. This one has the English sub-titles. There is a whole series, and this is just one part. I like the scene of Lord Brahma questioning his origins and some of the other scenes. Anyway check it out if you like. At the same time, beware of some of the awful depictions of "the Gods of India" and other nonsense coming out more and more from Bollywood these days (see report below). ys pd]    


New Bollywood Movie Insults Lord Shiva

[PADA: While there are some good depictions of "the Gods of India" in Bollywood movies, there are also some bad ones. As usual, some people are wondering, "Why aren't the Hindus protesting this movie more vigorously"? Here is a report from Bhakta Sanjay:]

Latest Bollywood Movie PK

'Lord Shiva is chased around toilets, ladders, terrace, roof, and he hides behind people, underneath chairs & tables near people's feet and his "rear" is also shown in such awkward position in the new bollywood movie called PK


When you take a position, you have to accept responsibilities.The more you become advanced, the more you become responsible for even little things. Responsibilities does not mean some fancy dress competition, your mental composure should match with the gravity of the situation around.

Bollywood is simply demonic based on the eternal Vedic teachings.

Most Bollywood Movies are filled with lusty and materialist scenes. These lusty and demonic scenes do not represent India, her culture nor her religion. The aim of Bollywood is simply to destroy morality and India. Please don’t support this rape on morality and righteousness by watching these types of Bollywood Movies. Every time you watch a demonic Bollywood Movie, you unknowingly sink deeper into ignorance and the result will be a hellish life, even in this life. Please stop watching Bollywood Movies from today.

Would you allow your wife or daughter to perform a silly dance, half naked on the street? No? Well then, why do you watch the daughters and wives of others dancing silly and half naked? According to Vedic culture, only a prostitute would dance half naked on the street? And those watching a prostitute are promoting prostitution.

If you want to keep your righteousness values, avoid Bollywood Movies. Until around the late 70’s, Bollywood movies portrayed good values and promoted righteousness. The old Bollywood movies used to literally make everyone cry. But now, Bollywood movies have become stupid, silly, and demonic. The theme of most Bollywood movies is lust. Boy going after girl, and girl going after boy.
The Bollywood movies of today promote irreligious, meat eating, drinking, gambling, materialism, partying, discoing, lust, and greed. These are the qualities that lead to hell.

What is Western culture?

There are many good things in the Western culture, but unfortunately most people take the bad parts and leave the good parts. Partying, discoing, meat eating, drinking, having relationships before marriage (boy friend/girl friend), having relationships after marriage, having no respect for the elders and no responsibility for ones actions. Enjoy today and forget about tomorrow, as though this is the only life.

The Vedic culture is the richest and most peaceful of all cultures, but people watching Bollywood movies truly believe that they portray Vedic values, but this is completely false. Bollywood movies are nothing but demonic (anti-Vedic). The makers of Bollywood movies are taking part in destroying India, her culture and true identity.

Bollywood promotes marriages based on lust. The simple fact is that many marriages end in a divorce today, because it was based on lust. What are the Qualities of Demoniac People?

In the Bhagavad-Gita, Lord Krishna defines the qualities of demonic people:
“Pride, arrogance, conceit, anger, harshness and ignorance, these qualities belong to those of demoniac nature, O son of Partha.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 16.4)

Modern lifestyle of meat eating, drinking, partying, discoing, visiting gambling cities, sexual lust, lust for material things, greed, ego, arrogance, desires, and relationships before marriage and outside marriage turns a righteous and intelligent person into a person full of lust, greed, anger and ignorance. A demon.

Western culture, slowly and unknowingly drains away the righteousness qualities in a person.
Lord Krishna states in the Bhagavad-Gita (2.67)

“As a strong wind sweeps away a boat on the water, even one of the roaming senses on which the mind focuses can carry away a man’s intelligence.”
“While contemplating the objects of the senses, a person develops attachment for them, and from such attachment lust develops, and from lust anger arises.
"From anger, complete delusion arises, and from delusion bewilderment of memory. When memory is bewildered, intelligence is lost, and when intelligence is lost one falls down again into the material pool.” (Bhagavad-Gita 2.62-63)

So what causes one to engage in sinful acts?

This question was asked by Arjuna to Lord Krishna. Lord Krishna said: “It is lust only, Arjuna, which is born of contact with the material mode of passion and later transformed into wrath, and which is the all-devouring sinful enemy of this world.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 3.36-37)

What are The Gates to Hell?

Lord Krishna answers this question in the Bhagavad-Gita (16.21) “There are three gates leading to hell. Lust, anger, and greed. Every sane man should give these up, for they lead to the degradation of the soul.”
What are the Alternatives to the Demonic Bollywood Movies and Serials? Everyone needs some entertainment; simply give up demonic Bollywood for devotional CDs, DVDs, and channels.

Conclusion: The message of the Bhagavad-Gita is very clear. Give up the demonic qualities of meat eating, gambling, partying, discoing, boy friend/girl friend business, drinking, and take up Bhakti Yoga (devotional service unto Lord Krishna). Or you will take birth in the plant and animal kingdom after this life. Then for 8 million births, you will wonder from one species of plant and animal body to another. Only a complete fool would waste this rare human birth.

When the human being gives up the process of hearing about the all-pervading Personality of Godhead, be becomes victim to watching rubbish transmitted by Television. It is creating rapid degradation in the standard of human civilization.

Krishna's land is being destroyed by the greed for luxury in Kali Yuga. In this Kali-yuga, the demoniac mentality is employed in manufacturing various goods to facilitate the process of sense gratification. When we understand our relationship with God then we all will be happy. It is an essential factor for establishing peace in the world.

All happiness in the material world has a beginning and an end, but happiness in Krishna is unlimited, and there is no end.

Please accept my humble obeisances

All glories to Srila Prabhupada ...

Always think of the Lotus Feet of Lord Krishna and you will find no difficulties in executing the tasks allotted to you by Krishna. Chant these names with love and you will feel the ecstasy:

Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare
Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare ...

Hare Krishna ... Jay Jagannath ...
