My friend Justin Kirkwood from Bloomington, Indiana went to India for a fun little adventure, which turned into years and being initiated as a Tibetan Buddhist monk. He lived and studied Tibetan and Buddhism with great Lamas in holy places of the Buddha and his followers. After being immersed in the culture and traditions for years, he is forced to return to America because of an emergency medical condition. His story of recovery and support of unexpected friends and family will inspire and amaze you!
Justin goes deep into the mysteries of the Buddha, comparisons to Christ, we talk about Karma, Reincarnation, the Dalai Lama, Tantric Sex and the true meaning of life according to Justin.. This interview is packed with tons of juicy details about everything you’ve ever wanted to know about Buddhism and some deep thoughts to take with you on your own spiritual adventures.
In 1979 when he was 16, Jadev Payang saw something on the banks of the river Brahmaputra that made him cry – thousands of snakes and reptiles dying on a barren sandbar, where they had washed up after a flood. Jadev, who goes by the nickname Molai, made it his mission to prevent other animals in the region from dying in the same manner, but the Indian government did not understand his vision and refused to help. Molai persisted alone for 30 years, planting trees and even importing ants, to create an ecosystem that would thrive on its own. In 2008, it was discovered by authorities who were chasing a herd of 115 elephants; they were surprised and impressed at what he accomplished. It is now named Molai forest and home to dozens of different species, including tigers, rhinoceros, deer, rabbits, and apes.

When I saw Amma in California last year, I asked her for a special money blessing. I was in-between a rock and a hard place and in need of a real break. At the end of the all-night Darshan, early in the morning, Amma appeared in the center of the stage with her hands full of flower petals. As people sang the final bhajans, she slowly let the flower petals fall from her hands, showering flowers, which struck me deeply. Amma does something special known as Devi Bhava which means she becomes absorbed in the mood of the Goddess. She was manifesting in this form as Lakshmi, the Goddess of Fortune. You can often see images of the Goddess Lakshmi in the similar form, in which she showers coins in blessings to the viewer/devotee. The coins represent fortune, abundance, and prosperity. Anyone who receives the blessings of Lakshmi will have some sort of abundance.
I knew that I was sealed with Amma’s blessings, who channeled those supreme blessings from the Supreme Goddess, Herself. From then on, my life started to change and opportunities began to open themselves to me, for me to make more money and do the type of work I enjoyed, the Home BusinessIndustry is one of the most exciting and booming new ways to make a 6-7 figure income! I researched it before starting professionally and found it to be such a powerful yet often misunderstood way to create a thriving income and freedom based lifestyle from home or while traveling. You can make $1000 a day or more by simply writing blogs daily, just like this. You can write about anything you like! Just like this!! I can write about things I care about or that interest me, and make “good money” doing it. To me, this is a blessing to which I give abundant thanks to God for. Hallelujah! Jai Maa!
Mata Amritanandamayi is known throughout the world as Amma, or Mother, for her selfless love and compassion toward all beings. Her entire life has been dedicated to alleviating the pain of the poor, and those suffering physically and emotionally.
Throughout her life, Amma has embraced and comforted more than 32 million people. Amma inspires, uplifts, and transforms through her physical embrace, her spiritual wisdom and through her global charities, known as Embracing the World.® When asked where she gets the energy to help so many people, she answers: “Where there is true love, anything is effortless.”
While Amma is widely regarded as one of India’s foremost spiritual leaders, Amma says that her religion is love. She has never asked anyone to change their religion but only to contemplate the essential principles of their own faith and to try to live accordingly.
“Lord Narasimha is here and also there. Wherever I go Lord Narasimha is there. He is in the heart and is outside as well. I surrender to Lord Narasimha, the origin of all things and the supreme refuge.”~Narasimha Purana
Narasimha is the Lion form of God in India. He represents Divine Majesty and Protection.
I always felt a connection to this Lion form of God because of how much I loved the form of Christ as the Lion of Judah.
