Jesu Maha Darsana

An Avatar (I apologise for using wikipedia) is an incarnation of the Mahavishnu, whom, if you're not some orthodox so-called type for whom Christ is the ONLY way, could very easily be understood as the Second Person of the Holy Trinity. Hindus believe that the Mahavishnu constantly incarnates, and, while I learned that during my three years in the Divine Light Mission Cult, I did a lot of study before I lost my mind with that group, and I really don't have a lot of trouble with that concept.

So, this article tells us about a Hindu woman, Latha Rajasekhar, whom has written an epic poem along the lines of the Ramayana and the Mahabharata. It is written in Kannada , the language of the state of Karnataka, and is titled Jesu Maha Darsana, or the Great Philosophy of Jesus. She said that this is the result of her great devotion to Jesus Christ. The Church of South India Bishop of Karnataka, Rt. Rev. Vasant Kumar (who is in communion with the World Wide Anglican Communion), has expressed approval of the book.

And before the Oh Most Holy and Orthodox and Only True Anglicans (FOCAs) and denziens of Viagraville and Kendall's Place starting screaming their collective heads off, I remind them (and I can proof-text with the best of them!) of Mark 9:38-41: John said to him, "Teacher, we saw someone driving out demons in your name, so we tried to stop him, because he wasn't one of our adherents." Jesus responded, "don't stop him! After all, no one who performs a miracle in my name will turn around the next moment and curse me. In fact, whoever is not against us is on our side. By the same token, whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you carry the name of the Anointed, I swear to you, such a person certainly won't go unrewarded!" Scholar's Version

I believe that Latha Rajasekhar will be rewarded.

Cool. I love this. I actually used to know some of this stuff, before "avatar" became the cool Manga pic you use to represent yourself on gaming sites. (Well, I don't, but some people do.)

However, you're still very naughty and unorthodox, and I shall slap you in a virtual manner. *Slap*
