    Dear Harold,

    I agree with you and partcularly the last paragraph. There is slight difference between doing pooja at home and in temple. Priests at temple have to maintain certain rituals which is not mandatory when you do pooja at home.

    Now a days things have changed and a priest can be born in any community and Kudroli temple is the standing example.

    Satish please correct me if I am wrong.
    As u had mentioned ” One who knows "Brahmatva" is a Brahmin. If you go to Kudroli temple then you can find Billava Brahmins who carry out regular pooja there.”.

    Let’s go little broader way. Any body who performs pooja isn’t he is a Brahmin. Whether it is at home or in the temple or any religious gathering. I have seen many of my neighbors perform pooja’s in their houses and when I was a small boy, I had sat for the same along with my classmates.

    As far as my knowledge goes and understand from my ISCON friends, a Brahmin is the one who shares and impart knowledge to others. Isn’t this is "Brahmatva" and every individual has this quality.

    Let us try to build a society of truth, trust and respect to each other for which we do not require preachers. This is still existed in our society. But we should be careful of enemies of humanity & brotherhood, who divides the society by their venom ideology.

    Dear Mr.Harold D'cunha, Mangalore,

    One who knows "Brahmatva" is a Brahmin. If you go to Kudroli temple then you can find Billava brahmins who carry out regular pooja there.

    In mumbai there are many Billava Brahmins like Mr. Ananda Shanti who have the ability to carry out any type of Poojas.

    Praveen , Mangalore i agree with you. It's the people like Jossy Saldanha who purposefully wish wrongs things to get happen by BD or any other hindu organizations.

    Amma is really great. As the diamond shines amongst the pearls, she is shining with her devotion amongst the Brahmin. This shows every individual has the capacity to spread God's message, not reserved to caste.

    @Herald D'cunha,Mangalor
    First and formost point to note on your comment is that you are jumping to find fault rather than fact finding.As you apprehend that Mangalore was good in previous times and not now,please note that even today Mangalore has retained its past glory with changing times.Every where there is polution in human behavior now a days and you and I are not exception to it.If you good you will see goodness every where.If a healthy man does not require a doctor as you say,please understand that doctors advice is required to sustain good health and like wise spirituality is an ingrdeient to keep oneself happy and clean hearted.I hope that are you not visiting church every Sunday and for this do youy attribute that you not of clean heart?
    It appears that you have puzzled in presenting the thoughts of your clean heart!Do not see the things in your way by accept and appriciate if it sounds okay for your clean heart.

    I wonder how Bajrang Dal would have reacted if some Hindus were to attend a religious meet organized by Christians?

    Agree with Satish Kunder views. I had interacted with people who are from the same village of Kerala where Amma Amrita Vidyalayam bread and bought up. She was neglected, came me from backward community.
    Also agree with deepak shetty, mangalore who had raised a valid point. "Something is not right in Mangalore. Every other day people come here in the name of religion, Guru and Teaching".
    In my childhood days we had lived in harmony amongst our neighbor and everybody was happy and content. Everybody was Tulu speaking and there was one feeling, i.e. was KUDLA. As a patient requires a doctor , today all dishonest , corrupt people seeks consolation to cover their guilt. That is why they seek blessing from the religious leaders.
    Healthy persons don’t require doctor, similarly a clean person in his heart will not attract to religious Guru’s irrespective of their religious faith.
    Having DARSHAN of God is absolutely good at their religious, holy places.
    We wish Amma good wishes in all her work of humanity.

    She is really doing good to the society and also beaking the Brahminiyal domination in Hindu society.She can be termed equivalent to Shri.Narayana Guru.

    Mata Amritanandamayi Amma, the 'hugging saint' is a ocean of compassion,love and effection for down troddens,poors,sufferers world wide irrespective of cast,color,religion,frontior barriers.To know and understand about her, one has to be blessed.To understand and experience the bliss one need not get converted to religion to religion but needs simple conversion of mindset to know the devinity.

    Something is not right in Mangalore. Every other day people come here in the name of religion,Guru and Teaching.They come in peace and within few months they own schools, institutions. My family has been spending 50 percent of our income on these things and supporting them > I am sick and tired of this.Why people want our money ?I am not against teachings, But every other day we have some one special coming here and more pollution.Why ? can't we have enlightenment from our own people here? future of our city will be more confusion and divisions among us. Just watch out..

    Glad to watch Spiritual bliss and Religious harmony are experienced at center of the stage by whites without being induced or force nor by discrimination. Flood of same followers might be missing. One should encourage religious freedom to practice or to convert from Christianity to Hinduism but can nerve be vice versa because they are induced say BD and its coercers . People quietly seek here peace while encouraging once own traditional religious harmony by communal terror in the coastal line.
    Amma could have shared her divine opinion to encourage religious harmony, peace and order in Mangalore since most of Religious, BD and BJP political leaders, Swamis and Sanyasinis, Police personnel, DC and people of all faith were gathered around there. Game end is not at sight - politics vs religions harmony.

    It is a privilege to have Mata Amrita live during our lifetime. She has done tremendous work towards uplifting the downtrodden soceity and we must appreciate this noble service apart from her religious service.

    It is always better to have some moral principal in life and to practise it. It will give some sort of joy to our heart, mind , and body. Same time we all must remember do not argue and condemn others and it is better to always remember that, "TO HAVE THE DAILY BREAD EVERY ONE MUST WORK HARD". "NO HONEY WITHOUT MONEY".

    Can this photographs open the eyes of rama sene, bhajaranga dal, rss? White people following hinduism, wearing Indian sarees and kurtha paijama it shows a indiviuals choice in choosing the faith of their own. I am very sure that these white people pledged a big amount of money to Mata Amritanandamayi Devi trust.

    Now it should make the blind to see the freedom of choice. If any one convert to their religion let them do with the dignity and let them win the heart with the good work and do not be jealous of other social work which leads to follow the religion they practice. Do not accuse falsely about the convertion rather find the root cause for the conversion. Indian fundamentalist must know that there is a huge Hindu population enjoying the freedom with the complete bennifits and security in Christian nations. Most of the people who unable to migrate Europe, US involved in these hatefull jealous act.

    Mata Amrutanadamayi is surely a different class than most of the swamijis we can find in the society today.

    She reminds me of Sri Narayana Guru who tried to bring the downtrodden lower class people to the mainstream of the society with his revolution.

    I normally do not like to go near to any Swamiji but reluctantly went to seek Mata's blessings few years back at one of my relative’s insistence and I can say that she has some divine powers which you can feel when around her.

    Mass individual pooja conducted under Mata’s guidance and her warm embrace of motherly love is an unforgettable experience.
