God sacrifices himself to himself


I am talking of Krishna. The Gita runs thus

I am the act of sacrifice, the sacrifice of God and man. I am the sap of the plant, the words, the sacrificial butter and fire, and at the same time the victim.

  1. “..he sacrificial butter and fire,..” Silliness! You butter the christian AFTER you cook it, not during the cooking process! You’ll waste butter that way.

    Was this where the seven dwarfs started with the pilgrimage nude on horseback through the city of Coventry? So sorry…that’s a different fairy-tale altogether! I need to review my kindergarten syllabus! ๐Ÿ™‚ Forgive me, my Kenyan brother. I just got released from a very frivolous faculty luncheon and I’m feeling no pain! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Naked hugs!

    I have the upanishads in my bathroom which I enjoy reading quite a bit when I’m in there for…ahem…business. lol

    It’s funny how we can sort of ignore eastern philosophy and culture, but then all of sudden it can become fad like and then people will see this lost wisdom in it and its the greatest thing ever. And there are parts of it that are I think important to read, but in the fad like mania what often gets glossed over is stuff like this passage. And there are tons of passages in the upanishads that just demonstrate they were completely lost about how certain things in the world worked and it’s complete nonsense. It’s interesting stuff though.

      I think it depends.
      Schopenhauer found a lot of his inspiration from the east- the Vedas, Upanishads and all.
      But there is also the element of what is foreign becoming a fad, simply because it is foreign

        The frontier of science is unseen, so it’s not surprising that books about things unseen might inspire a scientist or philosopher. I read about the originators of quantum mechanics being inspired by the vedas and the upanishads. However, that of course doesn’t mean that the writers of those books new something about quantum mechanics. I would imagine that if you just took a sufficiently long books that philsophizes about the nature of the universe some things might connect in your mind to what you already know and propel you forward, regardless of when that book was written. I too find many interesting and insightful passages in the book, but I also find a lot nonsensical ones in equal weight. lol
