DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

  • Only examples are this one and the Koran
  • There is only one of us
  • There is no such thing as separation
  • Every being that will ever exist and that has ever existed are all one being
  • Brahman
    • If it is everything, it cannot experience itself because it has no outside reference point
    • It has nothing to compare itself to

    • Translated as devotion
      • Does not carry the weight
      • This religious text is different from previous texts
    • It is a dialogue
      • The setup is different
      • The Koran is a monologue (it is one entity, God, speaking throughout all the surahs)
    • This is a human being asking questions and then God saying this is how it is and giving examples, imagery
    • This text does not use parable - most other ones do
      • As a means of communicating difficult concepts
    • To a man who has honor, dishonor is worse than death
  • The outcomes are not important, the act is important
  • Divorce yourself from desire
    • The dharma is in doing in the action and that is where your soul finds joy
    • You acknowledge separation which does not exist when you say that you want something
    • You are also saying that this moment is unacceptable and there is never a moment that is unacceptable
    • When we desire something, we focus on that to the detriment of other things
    • Is not saying that material goods are bad
  • You can be in the world and achieve enlightenment
  • It is the attachments to the objects that is bad - if you have them then it is nice that you have them
  • Hinduism is about perfecting the universe - everyone’s journey to enlightenment
  • The simplest form of a religion is usually the most common
  • You want what you can’t have
  • The wise grieve neither for the living nor the dead
  • No such thing as final death - no beginning no end
  • Ramayana
  • Army of monkeys - these are talking monkeys with armor
  • This battle feels like a cartoon/superhero/etc
  • Rama and Sita are presented as the ideal couple
  • Rama is presented as being utterly and completely devoted to Sita
    • He leads an army for a long way to get her back
