Radhakund is a sacred pond located in Vrindavan and is associated with the legend of Lord Krishna and Radha.

How Forgiving the Person Who Copies Your Website Content Makes You a Better Human Being

Copying website content and ideas are illegal and is copyright violation. No hardworking person will forgive such violations and it should not be forgiven. This is just my personal opinion and it is not for encouraging copying of content because many people view non-violent methods as weakness.There is a particular website published by a guy from Hyderabad(it seems he has a dozen of blogs on several blogging platforms publishing the same content) that regularly copies the content and ideas of Hindu Blog.

Gurumayi Chidvilasananda Thoughts

Gurumayi Chidvilasananda is the present spiritual head of the Siddha Yoga path.Give whatever you give with love, then even the tiniest pebble you offer will have a great meaning. When you meditate, the silence of the senses illumines the presence of God within. Most people, most of the time, are under the influence of the ego. Now, when someone is driving under the influence of alcohol, a policeman can pull that drunk driver over and measure the level of inebriation. But what policeman has the authority to pull you over and give you an egolizer test? You are driving, living, acting and speaking under the influence of the ego.The more you contemplate the teachings, the more they enter you. Gurumayi Chidvilasananda
