Dear Friends
I am a recent member of your
distinguished group. I read
with great interest the material
in it, and am awed at the depth
of knowledge of some of
your members.
I have certain observations
about how people worship or
show devotion in our country.
By and large people in the South (I am a south
Indian myself) can talk
of great scriptures, they
can talk of Bhakthi extensively,
but they practice less of Bhakthi.
In comparison people from the
North India talk less (rather preach
less) but really show Bhakthi,
never mind whichever Hindu
God they worship, be it Santoshi
Mata, Vaishnodevi or as a matter
fact any other Hindu God.
How many of your distinguished
members agree with me, these are
my frank observations.
Also can anyone explain why is it so?
