* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Greetings and salutations!
« on: March 16, 2017, 03:14:17 pm »
Hello fellow spiritual seekers!

I was looking for a forum where I could discuss and debate topics of religion and spirituality. I decided that The Cauldron was a good fit for my needs. I am currently practicing Bhakti Yoga and Tantra, along with syncretic elements from related traditions including Buddhism, Sikhism, and Jainism. I am especially interested in Vedic, Aryan, and reconstructed Proto-Indo-European religious practices.

My birth religion, if you can even call it that, was Christianity. However, I was raised by free thinkers who encouraged me to explore and evaluate my beliefs, and allowed me freedom to choose what, if anything, to believe. I am an American citizen and have lived in the United States my entire life. My family comes from a Soviet background, which is why I chose the USSR as my flag. If this is considered offensive, I will gladly replace it with the US flag instead.

In my personal life, I am a student of history and anthropology, and a professional historian. I am unmarried and not seeking a romantic relationship, I practice vegetarianism, (but not veganism) and am a pet owner. I do not claim  special relationships with any deities, but I revere Shiva, Kali, Indra, and Vishnu most strongly.

I am looking forward to discussing and sharing ideas about religion and spirituality on this forum!

I should probably clarify that by Aryan, I mean ancient Indo-Iranian people! I am not interested in Nazi theory or religious beliefs.

In context it seemed pretty clear (to me, anyway) that that is what you meant by Aryan, but clarification is always appreciated. :)

I thought it did, but I wanted to make sure! Thanks for the welcome, it's appreciated.

I suppose I should mention I am also interested in Jewish and Russian mysticism, as well. It's not something I currently practice, but It's an area I enjoy studying and learning about.
