Re: Elephant Head Update
Following up on the first message about the milk-drinking Ganesha-statuettes in
India, it now is official that The Netherlands, and I guess some other European
countries too, have their own thirsty Ganesha-statuettes.
Sat. september 23rd 1995.
The Hague/New Delhi
The Hindu Temple in The Hague has its own milkdrinking Ganesha-statuette, after
it became known that in New Delhi the alledged miracle had occured. This accor-
ding to Priest S. Randhani of the The Hague Temple 'Ram Mandir'. He made the
news public on Fri. september 22nd 1995.
A Milk-pack sits on the altair in the 'Sewa Dhaam' Temple in The Hague. A crowd
of believers gathered around the statuette doesn't seem to mind. After all,
they have just witnessed the 'milk-miracle' that makes believers around the
world hold their breath.
The 30 centimeters high, pink-colored image of the elephantheaded god, is deco-
rated with orange-blossom. Temple-secretary B. Ramdas demonstrates the miracle
as if it's some kind of magic trick. He hold a spoonfull of milk to the right-
tusk and after some time the milk slowly dissappears ! At the foot of the mar-
ble statuette a little splash of milk forms. Against all temple-regulations
Priest P. Tewarie lifts up the statuette and shows its hollow inside. No trace
of milk in there ! Not even some kind of vacuum-pump, that would explain the
milk being sucked in.
"God's miracles still didn't leave this world", Ramdas says triumphantly. "I
have always been skeptic, but I've tried it three times, and every try was a
hit. I see it as a confirmation of God's existance." The black bull Nandi,
Shiva's means of transportation, started drinking milk on Thursday, september
21st 1995. De other statuettes (read: Gods) simply refuse. According to the
Hindu community in The Hague, this prooves it cannot be a hoax.
In India, Nepal, Singapore, Hong Kong, The United Kingdom and the United States
statues of the Gods Shiva, Parvati and Ganesh started drinking milk too on
Thursday, september 21st 1995. A old man thinks the miracle is a sign of Ganesh
accepting the offered milk. "Our prayers were not in vain. The problems of this
world, will slowly but surely dissolve." There is no doubt in his mind. "Nobody
can get around this miracle". Even Mr. Tewarie has no doubts whatsoever. He
says:"You have two kinds of people: Those that don't believe, and those that
believe. We believe in it".
End of article.
This article would be better of in the conference on the paranormal, you
think ? Well, you know there's a lot of people that can tell you
otherwise. In the old scriptures there was word of flying objects of all
sorts and some people think the Gods mentioned were members of a
civilization that is centuries ahead of ours.
Some questions I would like to get some answers to:
- Does anybody know of prophecies on Ganesh, Shiva and Parvati. And if
so is it related in any way to these alledged miracles ?
- Sai Baba seems to have said this will be the dawn of a age of miracles
that will occur all over thee world. Any comments on that ?
- Peter Jan Hagens, a TV-celebrity in the Netherlands has promised to
investigate the matter, in order to find out if this is a hoax or not.
I will try and keep you posted on this one !
- Can anybody tell me if there is some kind of 'Book of Revelations',
in the Hindu religion ? Maybe some Nostradamus-fanatics will start
roaming the prophecies for such a miracle as this ?
- Any expert on the old Indian Scriptures around in this conference that
can get a discussion worth while started !!
... File not found, I'll load something *I* think is interesting.
