So I just lost the respect of a fairly reasonable human being in my WReligions class, which is unfortunate I guess. Although, I had it in the first place-- that's something, right? And, hell, I'm a person before I'm queer and he respected me as a person, so. Yes. Or something.

Unexpectedly, I'm not mad or upset about it (and you shouldn't be either; it's really ok), just pensive. --Nurture won over nature in this particular instance, insofar as his cultural predispositions overcame his logical, thoughtful nature. Hmm.


In other news, I am not cutting my Hinduism picspam because

LOOK

 

AT



THIS


BABY



YOU GUYS. Vishnu has the best human avatars ever. This is Krishna. He is the cutest baby to ever cute. And then he grew up AND WAS REALLY ATTRACTIVE.



DAMN SON.

And Rama is also really, really good looking. As he's kind of the same person as Krishna and, ultimately, Vishnu, this is hardly surprising.

Radha Krishna

That's him and his attractive-ass andro self and his unbelievably gorgeous and adorable and kickass wife Sita. They are the Ultimate Hindu Power Couple. They are so cute together. So cute.

Rama also has this bromance going on with Hanuman, the monkey king.



Guys. Look at that love. Canonically, they're the Ultimate Hindu BFFs, the way Rama and Sita are the Ultimate Hindu Power Couple. I can only hope threesomes ensued forthwith HINDUISM OT3 AMMIRI*shot*.


Vishnu/Krishna/Rama and Jesus are also friends, did you know.



Neither did I, but look at those guys. They are straight up having a floaty, shiny party in the Blue Ridge Mountains. 


God, I love religion.

DAWWWW BEBEH KRISHNA

(The ones I've seen of Ganesha are utterly adorable as well.)

And ffff Rama/Hanuman FTW, seriously. I live in Thailand and the Ramayana (Ramakien here) is so big, you see it everywhere, not just the fantastic costume dance-dramas and such. Hanuman is the greatest ever-- no matter how he's been portrayed, even in puppetry, he's always a cheeky monkey.

I am in love with this picspam! Hinduism has the prettiest gods EVER. I mean, *all* religions have their share of gorgeous artwork, but the Hindus are like: "NO WAI WE ARE TEH SEXIEST SO THERE!"

Also I died a little from joy because Jesus and Vishnu are holding hands. =^.^=

I KNOOOOW, how the prettiest religion everrr. We're still doing the European Middle Ages in art history and all the Madonnas and bb Jesuses are so frightening-looking, stylisation or no!

THEY ARE FRIENDS OMG :DDD

aham brahmasma

i am searching the same thing i searched in my childhood. the forms just keep changing. a big babool, then a bicycle, miss sunshine, metal sufi, weed, freedom. what else. did i missed something. hell this feeling. the confusion. m i really happy. common mate, i am not sad at all. i am just struck in a trauma. need some more light. need some more brightness. need to arise while its dawn. need to weep when its dark. still searching the peace, the ultimate silence.

i am searching god. in the form of christ, che, gandhi, shiva, bruce wayne. did i again missed someone. still confused. i myself only hide the thing long ago what i am searching in the all passing time of my life. i am flowing with the time since i born. one day this material body would be burned. my soul would start searching its existence. i would return in the time, would maintain the flow, would start searching something else.

I, I, I, I should listen to the broadcast

No! I am not Prince Hamlet, nor was meant to be;

Am an attendant lord, one that will do
To swell a progress, start a scene or two,
Advise the prince; no doubt, an easy tool,
Deferential, glad to be of use, Politic, cautious, and meticulous;
Full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse;
At times, indeed, almost ridiculous—
Almost, at times, the Fool.
