- GOPAL Namaste and welcome to my Profile-page + Wisdoms + Q & A + Discussions + Images. Let me first put down a few words about the background for my UserName and Logo. GOPAL, a Hindi word, literally means ' the protector/ nurturer of the cow ' --- the animal which is the near-equivalent of mother, according to the Hindu belief, and hence one hears of the phrase ' sacred cow '. Gopal is also one of the many names ascribed to Lord Krishna, who shepherded cows in His early youth out of His love for this gentle and nourishing animal, useful to humans in many ways. My logo --- the prettier and iridescent part of the 'India Blue' peacock [ Pavo cristatus ] feather --- is what adorns Lord Krishna's headgear. So, it has that sacred and spiritual touch to it, as well. Peacock also represents wisdom, compassion, eternal-life and resurrection. In Tibetan Buddhist belief, it stands for transformation of evil into goodness, and suffering into spiritual enlightenment. I registered on this beautiful website on Sept.7, 2007 with my first self-composed quote [the last-one on the last-page; see below], and I'm thoroughly enjoying my stay here ever since, and trying my bit to contribute what I can, and learn from the insights of others. I AM an eternal-optimist, botanical scientist by training, and Hindu by faith [open to good vibes from all religions, though], who loves all things that relate to SPIRITUALITY & NATURE. Since there's so much to love in our unique biosphere, I adore different colors, plants [especially flowers], gardens, forests, birds, butterflies, mountains, rocks, lakes, waterfalls, oceans, beaches, sky, sunrises and sunsets, clouds, rain, and photography [more so macro of flowers ]. Because I care for the ' Mother Earth,' I strongly believe in re-cycling, consuming less of the Earth's resources, wasting little [if I must] and not harming the environment.These are some of my passions that add charm and purpose to my life, besides my family of a beautiful wife and three handsome and grown-up sons. When browsing the 4,300 plus insights I share with you here, look for ones you like, even though it may be a bit hard and time-consuming to dig some of these out from the near-middle of the big stack. May you find these to be inspiring. Do checkout the images at the bottom of this page. There are some 6,670 plus images --- many of which are of aspects of nature, like flowers, birds, butterflies ['flying-flowers'], mountains, waterfalls, lakes, sunrises, sunsets, human craftsmanship and places of worship. Lot of these have been used for insight submissions. Clicking on any individual image there will enlarge it for you for better enjoyment. May you have much fun visiting this page, and feel inspired. Peace and joy to you, for now and evermore. Gopal
