* "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.

Adorations, Anyone?
« on: January 29, 2012, 12:21:29 am »
I don't know how many of you know about these adorations that are going around. Basically, they're like Catholic litanies or the Hindu practice of namastotra. You can find a big list of them here: http://krasskova.weebly.com/1/post/2012/01/this-adoration-thing-a-list.html (which includes the one by Sannion to Dionysus that started it all).

Any thoughts? Personally, I like the idea and feel like they're a good way to make use of the prayer beads I made recently. I particularly like the Adorations to Eros, even though I don't worship the Greek gods.

No, I wasn't aware of them. However, now that I am, I think they are great.

It's an interesting concept. I'm not sure if I have an opinion in either direction.

I wrote 40 of them for the Divus Iulius; and I'm quite fond of them. You can find them on my blog.
Remember him, O Lord, in Thy Kingdom, Thy faithful servant Tau Harmonius, bishop of the Gnosis, and a knower of the things that are, who like his predecessors of old gave his life and blood for the Truth that makes men free. Grant him we pray thee, a place of refreshment, a blessed tranquility, and the splendor of Thy Gnosis. We thank Thee, O eternal One, for the example of this faithful shepherd, who gave up his earthly life in Thy service, and we pray that inspired by his heroic virtue we may also bear witness to the Gnosis of Love, Liberty and Light, and may with him at length enter into Thine ineffable splendor and unending joy. Amen.

I'd never heard of them until now.  Great idea!

I have been doing adorations to Ganesh and Lakshmi for a short amount of time now, since I heard of them (the adorations). I really enjoy doing them and I know that they are thoroughly appreciated.  Now that there are other adorations for other pantheons out there, I don't feel quite so alone. ;)

I have heard of them but haven't really gotten into it til recently.  I'm trying to write my own for Morrigan and make my own set of prayer beads for her, but I do have one for Shiva (a newcomer to me on my path).

The idea is new to me, and I like it, especially as I attended my first-ever Salutations to the Theotokos service just last night. The text of the Akathist is something very similar (link), and it is recommended for daily recitation. Not sure if I could do that, though.
