Belief in the Holy Books of God

The scriptures are the revelations of Allâh. They were given to the prophets to guide people to the Right Path. In principle, Muslims believe in the previous books and revelations. But some of those books and revelations were lost or corrupted; others were forgotten, neglected, or deliberately suppressed. The only authentic and complete book of God in existence today is the Qurân. Its authenticity is indisputable, and no onehas seriously ventured to question its genuineness. According to the Qurân, people have distorted the previous scriptures for their own worldly gains. These distortions have occurred in many different ways, such as additions or deletions of text or changes in the meaning or the language. These distortions were adopted over time and what remains is a mixture of the original divine text with human interpolations.

"O ye who believe! Believe in God and His Messenger, and the scripture which He hath sent to His Messenger and the scripture which He sent to those before (him). Any who denieth God,His angels, His Books, His Messengers, and the Dayof Judgment, hath gone far, far astray. " [The Qurân Ch: 4 Al-Nisa’, V: 136]

Karma, Shakti, Mantra

On Imported Blog

I've wanted to learn this Ganesha Mantra from the Rig Veda for several years now, it has always struck me as being a chant that really conveys and connects with Ganesha Shakti. For some reason, it has always escaped me. I would try to learn it, and try as I might, it would slip through the cracks of my mind. I would put it on the back burner, and when I would later come back to it, I would experience the same frustration. For some reason, earlier this week, it clicked for me. I don't know why, and I don't know how, but I suppose that isn't for me to know. It might have been the time spent with the book 'Loving Ganesha' (link below), but I can't say for sure. I'm going to chalk it up to karma, and shakti. Like our Old Friend Krshna says in the Bhagavad Gita, 'No effort on the path is wasted'. So keep on practicing.

I hope you enjoy the above video, its not exactly the melody or tempo that I use, but it sure is pretty.
