Ramblings of an Artist

The essence of Hinduism is that it has no essence. What defines Hinduism and sets it apart from other major religions is its polycentricity, its admission of multiple centers of belief and practice, with a consequent absence of any single structure of theological or liturgical power. Unlike Christianity, Buddhism or Islam, there is no one single canonical text — the Bible, the Dialogues of the Buddha, the Quran — that serves as a fundamental axis of hermeneutical or doctrinal endeavor, recording the words of a foundational religious teacher. (The Veda is only the earliest in a diverse corpus of Hindu texts.) Hinduism is a banyan tree, in the shade of whose canopy, supported by not one but many trunks, a great diversity of thought and action is sustained.

- Jonardon Ganeri, What Would Krishna Do? Or Shiva? Or Vishnu? (via brahmaanda)

Weird Moments in Comics: That Time The Trinity Got Married

puckling:

bystander3:

Does anyone remember the time that Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman got married?

Like three-way, menage troi married?

Like that was a real thing that happened to the real Diana, Bruce & Clark?

I feel like that was weird. I feel like we don’t talk about this…

Close your eyes.
From Hook to Jumanji to Dead Poet’s Society
With wonder and fantasy and passion
Your joy became watercolor poetry that filled
in the sun and made people everywhere
believe in themselves and believe in life.
We’ve seen you weep and stand on a desk to view the world differently.
We’ve seen you fight for what you wanted and desired.
Maybe these were just characters, but you brought them to life.
I don’t know your middle name or your wife’s name or how you felt the first moment you realized you were famous or the first time you felt alive,
but I know you were sixty-three when you felt the desks collapse and
the walls close in and suddenly we remembered you were fighting a battle, too.
Suddenly we feel an absence we hadn’t felt before.
Suddenly we feel a sadness we do not know how to describe.
We’re all fighting battles and we realize that with your passing
and we’re sorry you had to leave.
You made us laugh and you made us weep and you made
us stand in our movie theatre seats and raise our fists to a life worth living.
OH CAPTAIN, MY CAPTAIN, we will remember you.

- Robin Williams, by Amanda Helm  (via amandaspoetry)

frogsforsale replied to your post: I’m curious. Do south Indian languages…

How do you pronounce it? Is it a la, where your tongue touches the front teeth or a la, where your tongue touches the roof of your mouth?

Yeah it starts off touching the roof of your mouth and and ends with a tap just below your lower teeth. 

It’s at 2:03 here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_0YSwM3kUs

Yes.I don’t about Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam, but in Kannada we definitely have it. Its’ written like this ಳ . 

I think Tamil has it too, cause I’ve heard that Tamil has 3 la’s but I’m not too sure.

I must find him and love him and take care of him everyday.

Seriously though guys. I COULD WATCH HOURS OF THIS. If they don’t make a Groot in a pot that dances to your music by Christmas I will be SORELY disappointed.
