Though she was share physical intimacy with each Pandava in turn, deep within her would she had a special place for the true winner Arjun. It is mentioned in the Holy sacred scriptures that once during her time with Yudhishthir (that damned poker/dice player) she saw Arjun`s bow lying around and in a fit of pas ...more

Mahaprabhu Chaitanya dev who was pioneer of the Vaisnav religion. He was so much in love with the Lord Krishna that he used to see existence of Krisna not only in animals but also in plants , trees flowers etc.It was he who first introduced worship of Lord Krishna through Sankirtan and Nagar Sankirtan taking along with him the down trodden people of the society . Days in and days out he usedtostand before the deity of Lord Jagannath in Puri andused to cry . he was , it is said, brutally murdered by group of vested interest, who did not like his closeness with the oppressed people.The members of ISCON are also his followers. He had shown how love can win everything , how love can break barriers of society , how love takes one life to generate millions lives blossiming with love and love only ---JAI JAGANNATH SWAMI / NAYANOPATHAGAMI / BHABATU MAY !

One mythical character coming to my mind is epitome of love and devotion Bajrang Bali Shri Hanuman, who because of selflessness and piety, was bestowed blessings by several Gods, which made Him mighty and powerful beyond compare.
