Welcome to our Fall Fundraiser. It takes money and manpower to run Krishna.com. Our staff of enthusiasts tinker tirelessly to bring you the website all about Krishna, delivering Krishna conscious content to over 4000 people a day in 195 countries. That's more than a million people each year. Help us help more people. We still need to raise $12,000 $10,241 to keep Krishna.com alive and vibrant for the next six months. Thank you to those who've contributed $1759 so far. Please help. If everyone reading this gave five dollars—the equivalent of two gallons of gas at current US pump prices—we'd be done with this fundraiser and could go back to doing what we love most...

Women are like fire & men are like butter


nanv agniḥ pramadā nāma
ghṛta-kumbha-samaḥ pumān - Nārada Muni

Noted in Scientific American, a popular science magazine, was a scientific study that illustrated that men became significantly “Cognitively Impaired”, or so to say stupid, in the presence of a woman.  This study also very clearly illustrated something that I always thought the analogy of Narada Muni hints to. That women, like the fire, are unaffected by the butter.  See the short article here.

Thank you, The word usage

Thank you, The word usage does not imply ghee being poured into the fire but rather just being near the fire. The scientific study, although not perfect unlike the Sastra, also really illustrates this point, that the women's cognitive abilities are unaffected.

Fire yajnas

Hare Krsna. I always enjoy reading your posts because of your deep insights.

Prabhu as our resident brahman I know you have done probably hundreds of fire yajna's expertly. It seems to me that when you pour the ghee over the flame that it fuels the fire so the fire gets bigger. So it seems like in Narada Muni's analogy that both the butter and the fire affect each other. The fire melts the butter and the butter fuels the fire.

Once again thank you for your enlightening insights.
