The Power of Lavender

7

The eschatology that binds Hinduism, Christianity and Islam as one—vis-a-vis the final events in history,  i.e. fulfillment of a divine plan for humanity, and the immortality of the human soul—is congruously and collectively fulfilled by the Divine Feminine (Adi Shakti).

Adi Shakti is a concept of Hinduism, of divine feminine power. Adi Shakti is responsible for creation, is an agent of change and has the potential for self destruction. The generic approach to independent existence, and thus a false belief of empowerment has lead millions of women to fall into a downward spiral of questionable character. The power and the grace of feminineness, comes with a potential to ignite the flame of dignified individuality. It is important for men amongst us, to understand its sanctity and give every woman with such a flame the respect she truly deserves. At the same time, the potential   if put to use in an adverse way, will lead to self destruction. Any woman who seeks to dishonor the dignity of the flame and put it to a non – righteous use, will be reduced to a state of submissivenessslave of selfishness and being objectively worthless forever. 

Celebrate dignified feminineness complimented by fragrance of purity, selfless love and righteous existence; failure of which invites introspection of self, marred by the smell of disgust and selfishness, forcing us to reason, if there is a necessity to continue such a worthless existence.

    Hinduism, Islam and Christianity do not agree on what the "divine plan for humanity" is.Also apart from Hinduism the others don't state that the soul is immortal. In fact the definition of soul is different in different religions.I don't quite agree with the rest of what you say either but that is an issue for another place; another time.

    @ anonymous…The divine plan for humanity is to understand the right balance for existence and attain salvation. Though, the method might be different, various religions preach the same. In regard to immortality of soul, as I stated in my article, it is congruously and collectively fulfilled by Divine Feminine (Adi Shakti). Immortality of soul speaks of the existence of the supreme universal soul, and each of us being a reflection of the same. The supreme universal soul speaks of existence of god, and that again is agreed upon by various religions. Definition of soul is definitely different, but the immortality of the supreme soul as I presented is accepted by various religions, though in different contexts.You are welcome to disagree with my opinion, and I invite you to share your points of view. And also, it will be great if you can list your name as well.

    It is not the method that is different but the notion itself is different although the terminology used is the same. Hence various religions don't preach the same thing. The concept of going to heaven/hell(Christian and Islamic) is not the same as escaping the chain of births and deaths.(Hindu/Buddhist).My point about immortality of the soul is that not all religions have the same take on it. There is no biblical support for soul immortality. Some Christian sects talk of conditional immortality. Islam I think is ambivalent on this issue.I don't want to pursue this argument on soul further as I think it is a fact is there is nothing called 'soul';hence we have a multitude of interpretations of the concept. It is purely metaphysical and hence speculative.Where I disagree with you is you have romanticized the idea of femininity. Reasoning of this kind is part of the reason as to why feminist movement in India is a joke. The Indian woman is a chained entity. Respect for her is not going to come by singing paeans about divine femininity but by a commitment to the idea of egalitarianism.

    Before I proceed to reply on your comments, I wish to present some clarity on two points:Christian eschatology is concerned with death – an intermediate state, Heaven & Hell, the return of Jesus, the resurrection of the dead,the last judgment and "the ultimate consummation of all of God's purposes". Eschatological passages are found in many places, especially Isaiah, Daniel, Matthew 24, Matthew 25, and the Book of Revelation – final book of the New Testament corpus.Islamic eschatology is concerned with the al-Qiyāmah "Last Judgement". Eschatology relates to one of the six (five according to Shī‘a traditions) articles of faith (aqīdah) of Islam according to the Sunni traditions. Like few other religions, Islam teaches the bodily resurrection of the dead, "the fulfillment of a divine plan for creation", and the judgement of the soul; the righteous are rewarded with the pleasures of Jannah "Heaven" while the unrighteous are punished in Jahannam "Hell"). A significant portion of the Qur'an deals with these beliefs, with many hadith (one of the most famous hadith is Hadith of Gabriel) elaborating on the themes and details. Most modern eschatology theories, both religious and secular, involves the violent disruption or destruction of the world, whereas Christian and Jewish eschatologies view the end times as the consummation or perfection of God's creation of the world. For example, according to ancient Hebrew belief, life takes a linear (and not cyclical) path; the world began with God and is constantly headed toward God’s final goal for creation. What I wanted to speak of, in this post is about mystic traditions, which form sub currents within larger religious traditions – and eschatology there of. To list it again, I stated in my article, immortality of soul is congruously and collectively fulfilled by Divine Feminine – immortality of universal soul. One needs to grow beyond the notion of incorporeal essence of a single person, and comprehend the bigger picture. This will give us reasons to believe that "soul" is beyond being just metaphysical and is definitely not speculative.I wish to clarify – in my blog posts I never romanticized any idea. More so, I never present interpretations or commentaries on ideas which are presented by others, rather I present my understanding of an idea. I implore you to seek a better understanding of Indian women of today. There is a necessity to have a two prong approach – Indian Urban Women and Indian Rural Women.The reason why feminist movement in India and to certain extent in other parts of the world, is a joke is partly because the fight is fought for or is either represented by "not-so-worthy/genuine" stakeholders and the real need/needy is never addressed. Again, it is unfortunate that few amongst us – well educated, fail to understand the difference between notions of 'equality for all' and 'respect for an individual'. Subscribing to the idea of equality for all, will and should not ensure respect each of us deserves – and in this post, I wanted to present my idea of respect for dignified women.There is again a dual argument about respect for an individual, whether it needs to be earned, or is something that needs to be given. I shall present in another post, my point of view and few essential parameters on this idea – who deserves respect and to what extent.
