    I totally totally agree with what allwyn says you need to feed the hungry coz one can see true God on hungry weakened sorrowful faces you love your neighbor feed them that is the only way to attain peace salvation and in other words moksha.  I feel the bishop of mangalore has to put up some rules and make some announcements in churches so that our religious know their boundaries and do not cross boundaries. 

    Our lord no where said Christianity is a religion where you have no persecution when lord himself suffered trouble what are we in front of him , just to avoid trouble that doesn't mean that we do whatever comes to our heart. I feel the religious should think about this seriously

    It surprises me that a few find it a offence that nuns have taken part in a ritual. Some people have a wrong version because of what they are taught rather than verifying the facts. If we analyse during the time of Jesus there were Samaritans who belonged to a different faith and there was hostility and prejudice between Jews and Samaritans.

    However the parable of the good Samaritan by Jesus, sought to teach that actions speak louder than words. Jesus also drank the water from a Samaritan woman. Jesus helped 10 lepers and only one returned to thank and he was a Samaritan too. During his time, Jesus reached to people of other faiths although he was condemned too.

    Fr.Fregory D'Souza, now you have come to conclude that true Heaven is participating in rituals of other religions. Since my young days I was preached by Priests to honour and obey the first Commandment. I am sure you also did the same kind of preaching. There is saying in Konkani" Pavs Marchaa Kushin Sotri Dhor" Fr. Alex Castellino,who taught me Catechism is no more or I would have asked him of His opinion on this matter. There is a saying in US,that says Love your neigbhour but don't sleep with them.

    Disapproving or judging others will never achieve anything good If you are disapproving what the Nuns did and judging that they have not understood the word of God, you are doing a judging act right there, isn't it? That too, who are you judging? You are juding the Nuns who read the word of God daily and have chosen to live a holy life.

    What right do you have to judge them? Secondly, a Nun may have Christ in her heart and may participate in the rituals, it's the heart and mind that counts more than external actions. If involvement in rituals can bring more peace and harmony (than staying passive indoors) you think Christ will say "No" to it? Come on...

    Very nice to watch the programme. I am dumb founded to see that Beef eating Christians and Muslims were allowed to enter the sanctuary of the temple and offer flowers. Cow is holy to Hindus and respected as God. How gutsy these people are to pass the Statue of Sacred Bull in front of temple after eating Beef all their life. May God Bless these Nuns. I hope that these Nuns will quit eating Beef hereafter.

    This is in response to all those comments that state that the above gesture made by the nuns is "not pleasing to our LIVING GOD". Well first Bible says that God looks into the heart of these people .......for man looketh on the outward appearance but the Lord looketh on the heart" (1 Samuel 16, 7)...... how do u people know whats there in the heart of these people when they perform such an act.

    By promoting religious harmony and love around, how do u defile the living God? Again.... its up to God to judge and not us... Lets instead welcome such acts of love and harmony.... which is strong reply to people who try and prove otherwise

    Hi Kiran, this is Canute. I whole heartedly stand for your statement. Loving your neighbor does not mean that we have to join in Hindu rituals. Love your neighbor stands for humility but not in entertaining to your neighbor’s faith what he believes in. Jesus said love your enemy, if he is hungry feed him if he is thirsty give him a drink.

    Do not pay back bad with bad instead for bad with good. Do not take revenge. That’s what Jesus says about love for your neighbor. That’s what it mean love your neighbor as you love your self. I have personally visited many temples with my Hindu friends. As I am a Christian I did not take part in religious rituals but indeed I whole heartedly involved in their joy.

    My friends told me “ if any of our religious customs are offending to your faith then you just don’t involve in it. You came with us, and that is a great joy for us.” In this way a Hindu Brother can show the love to a Christian brother. I did not involve my self in Hindu rituals it does not mean that I have disrespect for Hindus.

    I eat beef but I never offered to my Hindu brothers because I know it is against to their religious faith. If I offer them or if I eat in front of them it truly hearts them. If you love, then you defiantly care. nt mean that only

    This is a very sad state of affairs for the church in Mangalore, going strictly against the first commandment of God. Religious harmony and dialogue cannot be achieve through compromises and diluting one's faith but affirming what we are, presenting the true tenants of our faith, respecting at the same time what others have to say - respecting is not accepting! In the prophetic language, these catholic leaders and nuns have commited "adultery". May God save the church in Mangalore.

    Dear Nesara,The two beautiful commandments JESUS gave us are 1)LOVE GOD ABOVE ALL WITH ALL YOUR HEART,MIND AND SOUL 2)LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOUR AS YOURSELF..now loving your neighbour unconditionally does not mean that you be a part of all the rituals which are not pleasing to our LIVING GOD.

    Loving your neighbour unconditionally means exactly what Mother Theresa and so many other people did wholeheartedly. I completely agree with Joel's massage to the nuns, there is no compromise in honouring OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN who loves us UNCONDITIONALLY(which can not be compared with our luke warm love). I hope you understand.GOD BLESS YOU and JESUS LOVES YOU.

Well BJP in power does give money to demolish Churches and mosques with proof, Babri Masjid and few dozen churches in Orissa and destruction of some in Mangalore. Your claims can't proven and temple money goes to the temple treasury and not government. Proof: An old Hindu friend of mine runs a temple in Powai, Bombay.

Keep up the good work and be united to defeat the culprits creating communal voilencce and bringing disgrace to Mangalorean by outsiders.

    Brilliant work from Daijiworld. May God bless you. Dear Joel, DO NOT bring Christ into your comments. Christ was always for love and harmony and he never said "Dishonor the pagan Gods". If Christ was for love and harmony, He would have been happy to see this happen. If you are a true Christian as you call yourself, you should be able to love others unconditionally. May be that will take you to Godliness but I am sure that disapproving or "non-approving" of pagan religions will never achieve even a fraction of Godliness of what can be achieved from love and harmony, or the level of "Christianity" you claim to have. Regarding your comments about Hindus, Here is what The Bible says: "Stop judging, and you will never be judged. Stop condemning, and you will never be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.- Luke 6:37"

    Priya your concern is correct. Due to given sensitivity of religious disharmony all faith came together at an earliest opportunity which is the need of the hour. Poverty could never be eradicated during any phase of economic boom period.

    When there is unity or a noble cause of LIGHT between the different religions, DARKNESS (as we witnessed on Sept. 14th, 15th....without law and order) has to flee. If no light, darkness will cover that region. Hope this will be a on going process reaching for a “better cause” to nullify the forces of darkness.

    Good to see people of all religion getting together. However it would have been even better to see people get together for a better cause. What will be achieved by contributing such huge amounts to a Golden Chariot... When economy is slowing down, people are losing their jobs, people cant even afford to buy a house today, general public cant afford a medical treatment and list of problems faced by country goes on and on and on.

    In such a scenario we are contributing for a Golden chariot which is mentioned as a "Nobel cause" in the article. I think we should use money for development, I dont think God expects a Golden Chariot for Himself, it will only add to temple revenues.

    I appalud the religious tolerance here at the same time I am appalled at some peoples syncretist views. I am a Christian and I know what Christ did for all of us. I understand his teachings too very well for I practice them to the extent possible. Christ taught among pagans but He didn't honor their pagan gods. As for the gathering of nuns there, good work no matter their level of ignorance as I understand participating in the rituals is offense to the Living God.

    I know this well too that my comment may not make it the the board. But I have a question, how many Hindus would contribute to rebuild the Churches razed to the ground by fellow Hindus? Something to think about huh?

    What should be the most important subject today in the schools? Is it languages, maths, science, social science computer....? Of course all these are necessary but given the situation of India we need to add one more subject immediately. I feel it could be Inter-Religious Dialogue. To live in harmony with other communities, to respect other religions, to participate in others celebrations, to respect others culture, language and traditions need to be included in the curriculum. Anything that generates hatred against the people of other religions, culture should not find place in the syllabus. Education is different from literacy. Here I do recall the famous lines by a poet- "Pothi padh padh jag moya, Pandit bhaya na koy! Dhayee akkar prem ka padhe so pandit hoy! In Hindi the word 'PREM'(WHICH MEANS LOVE) has only two and half letters. So the poet says, one may study all the books in the world but he may not be the ENLIGHTENED ONE unless he has learnt to love. Though the word prem is of two and half letters, if mastered will enlighten you. Without love and feelings we will be like robots, who even can function better than human. I request all Hindus, Muslims, Jain, Buddhist & Christians to understand this to save the human race.

But the politicians did outsmart us and succeeded to sow the seed of hatred. Now the politicians will not have peace. If the communities live in peace then their strategy will fail. Communal disharmony, regional, linguistic disharmony are their trump cards. They do not have love for any of these but somehow they succeed in capitalizing on our emotions/ sentiments. We become an easy prey. We do not reason out. We stop thinking. Beware! Watch out they will come out with a new issue. Now development, employment, education, literacy, issues on ecological balance, are not in the list because these issues are not enticing and do not bring more votes...What could be the next sensational issue any guess..?

There is only one God though he has many names and his temples of worship must be respected by all religions and supported. Gone are the days when I, as a young boy, was forbidden to step inside a temple. The priests of those days (perhaps even today's)show intolerance. God bless them.

    Welldone daijiworld... we love peace. In 1988 - one of my friend in final bcom, his question was "Mr. siddique - in hindi movies...why they worship our hindu god?" - really... such an innocent friends. His thinking was that - hindi movies are of muslims. I dont think ... the days are again....anyhow, good job daiji...keep it up.

    This is the spirit, this is how I remember Mangalore. We attended Diwali, Eid and other religious celebrations with my Hindu and Muslim friends and they attended Christmas midnight mass with us and partied after that together. The recent violence is just 'vote bank' politics played by politicians, that affect the common man.

    Harmony among the society is an important factor. This sort of gesture could also be extended to educate the under privileged children. I hope this unity will be followed by many more Humanitarian work in Mangalore.

    This is the practice of secularism. Let us live as Indians and the spirit of love and peace spread in organizing and devoting to God as one Mangalorean family Let us practice love. Appreciate Honorable Janardhan Poojary. Let us live in unity and peace as one large family of human being and respect every persons creed, culture and religion. God is one but names many or different names.

    I hope this should be an eye opener for all those antisocial group which led the communal trigger in mangalore/udupi.Where are they now?Please dont disturb mangalore communally...It was so peacefull with highly qualified peace loving comunity.If possible do some community service,keep mangalore city green and clean,mordenise it,set an example to others by good policing,raise awareness camps,organise sports,cultural festivals,build decent and safe envinoment for women,help the poor and needy.rather to disrupt peace....This should be the main aim of any religion loving person,to set an example to lead others.....Its difficult but possible
