I’ve felt the presence of the Lord in some famous personalities and saints. It is written in the Bhagwad Gita – I reside where there is beauty, wisdom, strength and power.

With a flash of insight, the reader recalls the memorable Puranic scene where Agni “takes Lord Shiva’s seed in his mouth”. )
From the above quote, we learn that: 1) Hema Malini has the hots for Bill Clinton [“I reside where there is beauty...”], 2) Monica Lewinsky is a reincarnation of the Fire-God, and 3) Sometimes a cigar is just a lingam.
