Jay Baba vs. Jai Baba = God vs.establishment/social norms
"…..... i write JAY, because we write and pronounce: DAY, MAY, PAY, KAY, WAY, BAY...... .....'ai' sound is different = Sai (Baba), Bhai, hyun-DAI, ananda-MAI, ....etc.... And this shows, once again, that what is practiced and 'established' is NOT always 'correct' and reliable!!!"
…. so, a dear sister responds as:
and a dear brother responds as:
Yes, when it comes to 'sensitive' deeper issues ( 'normality/establishmed'), it is NOT pleasant!
So i responded to make it MORE CLEAR:
And then a dear brother who has been with ISKCON in his early age, suggests the following:
" ....I knew little about the international phonetic standards that Srila Prabhupada used when undertaking his word for word translations and paraphrasing and purports for the numerous Sanskrit texts which he published in English.....I suggest that you take up these interesting points with the scholars from ISKCON. It will be a great preaching exercise as well....."
And i respond to make my point clearER (as i have said it already in my last line, above!):
"......... i get good responses for such 'hits' and it is useful for me to know the state of the minds of the 'Baba-lovers'...... ...., i am not actually interested in the words and dictations and pronunciations, since i know they are just changing phenomena....my main concern, as i wrote there, is the 'establishment' / 'authorities', and theirs ways of 'getting into people, and the 'naive minds' finding them CORRECT! That is all! i play with such a thing and i did so, because i was directly asked by a sister to 'correct' my way of writing 'Jay Baba' !!
And another soul comments:
"....Your rave about Jay vs. Jai was bloody ridiculous, even though you are pedantically correct."
"Yes, i did it on purpose to create another 'wave'! you will read more about its 'origin' and the after mats....soon..... when i am NOT at home (in coffee nets and nothing else to do except writing!) i feel like doing such ridiculous things! And i enjoy it and the responses i get! "
