03:11 pm - Silly Vedics . . . paps are for kids!
So I'm reading through the Vedas, and I come across this nifty Sacrifice of Five Oblations that I'd like to work up into a ritual. The problem is, I don't have quite enough background to fully understand it. The main problem (and it's a big one) is understanding what exactly the oblations are:

fried grain
mush
the pap
the cake
the milk mess

What kind of grain? What sort of mush? Wtf is pap? What kind of cake? Milk is usually messy, but what's special about this?

I think I can figure out the rest of it, but these five oblations are obviously vital. . . but no instruction is given in context to make 'em.

So, it looks like I'm off to the beginning of the Vedas to read straight through. . . yippee-kai-yai-ay, and all that.

   He who knows the sacrifice with the five oblations propsers with the sacrifice of five oblations.

Yeah, I could live with prospering.

I thought about a websearch, but was afraid of what I might find. I think that reading the Vedas is a bit better bet :)

I'm sorry. It will never happen again.

I have learned my lesson. I will now devote my life to Krishna and shave my head into a topknot!

The last time we were in the airport there were Krsnas. They had the typical hair style but were wearing business suits. They still went after the college kids who looked like hippies. The hippies turned them down.

I don't think you'd make a good Krsna. Have you read the Gita? *shudder*

They come in several series. There's the ones in the orange sheets, the ones in the business suits, and the ones that wear pants. The accessories are where they really get you, though: you have to buy all the musical instruments seperately, the sandals never fit right, and the mantras. . . don't even get me started on the mantras! They're so expensive, and once you open the box, they don't shut up!
