experiences

Last month there were two important occurrences in my life which I feel the need to share.
First, I've managed to finish reading the whole Srimad Bhagavatam in Sanskrit, which took me 10 months (two months less than planned), with the result of a very good inner feeling, higher awareness, a sort of transformation. So if you'd want to try some longer vrata, you can try out this one. With a chapter a day it'll take 335 days. Two transliterated verse-only versions:

editing/proofreading

Right now I'm looking for editing/proofreading jobs in English language, preferably related to spirituality. Full CV available on request.

I quit Pariprashnena several months ago

But the site doesn't have account deletion button so it may look I'm still there.
Whoever was/is asking me anything there, please do it here, in forum, by pm or email.

Re 10 days after death when the soul still stays on earth:

This is hinted at in Garuda Purana (trans. J.L. Shastri/A board of scholars, Motilal Banarsidass, Delhi 1982):
2.10.82 Whatever pinda the sons or kins give him during the ten days, the same unites the Vayuja body with the pindaja body.
2.15.74 On the eleventh day and the twelfth, the soul of dead eats to his fill.
