Goddess Girija

Goddess Girija is one among the numerous names of Goddess Parvati. She is known as Girija as she is the daughter of the king of Mountains Himavan, who is also known as Himavat or Giri or Parvata Raja.
Legend has it that Giri, the king of the mountains, once performed intense austerities to fulfill the desire that Mother Goddess should be born as his daughter.
He performed the tapas for several years and one day went to take bath in the Padmateertha (Lake) in the Himalayas.
There he saw a very huge lotus with thousands of petals. Middle of the lotus was a new born who was happily playing.
King Giri went into the lake and took up the new born.
It was a girl child with a divine aura.
Giri showed the child to his wife Mena Devi who was ecstatic.
They adopted the child and named the baby Parvati.
Giri means hill or mountain and the daughter of King Giri came to be known as Girija.

If life’s aim is life, then reverence for life becomes your religion – Osho

Life’s aim is life itself more life, deeper life, higher life, but life always.
There is nothing higher than life. And a reverence for life is a necessary corollary.
If life’s aim is life, then reverence for life becomes your religion.
Then respect other people’s life. Don’t interfere in anybody’s life, don’t try to force somebody to follow a certain path that you think is right.”
The world does not need any organized religion.
The world certainly needs religious people individuals in search of deeper and richer life.
And as life becomes infinitely deep, it is the paradise; you have entered the kingdom of God. And the doors are within your own heart.
Osho
