It is not a fact that d Lord appears only on Indian soil.He can appear
anywhere&everywhere.Just becoz d Sun rises in d east doesnt mean it
belongs2d eastern country like Japan.D Lord sends His bonafide
representative(as mentioned in Vedic scriptures) in d form of His
Son(eg.Jesus) or Servant or Himself.

~No problems except self-created ones

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: Bhakti Vikasa Swami <Bhakti.Vikasa.Swami@pamho.net>

Prabhupada: Actually there is no problem. Why there should be problem? There
are 8,400,000 species of life. Out of that, human being are 400... Out of
that, 80%, they are uncivilized. So all these living entities have no
problem for eating. This 20% or 15% people who are called as civilized, they
have problem. They have created problem. At least in India, say, hundred
years before, there was no problem for eating, even for the sudra class or
any... No, there was no... The society was so made, there was no problem.
Why fifty years? In 1933 or '36 in Vrndavana somebody wanted milk, some
pilgrimage amongst ourselves. So went to a house. So, "Can you supply us
some milk?" "Ah, how much you want?" So it was about ten pounds. So she
supplied immediately, one woman, and when she was offered price, "Oh, why
shall I take a price for ten or twenty pounds of milk? Oh, you can take it."
That is my practical experience. Milk was so freely available. So simply we
are creating problems by godless civilization. That is a fact.

Hamsaduta: Once you said we are making solutions to self-created problems,
and we think it's advancement.

Prabhupada: Yes.

Hamsaduta: We've created a big thing and then make so many solutions.

All those years ago!



Song:           All Those Years Ago 
Duration:      4.23
Track No.:    2-4
Composer:    Harrison
Vocals:         George Harrison
Year:           1991
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Lyrics:

I'm shouting all about love
While they treated you like a dog
When you were the one who had made it so clear
All those years ago.

I'm talking all about how to give
They don't act with much honesty
But you point the way to the truth when you say
All you need is love.

Living with good and bad
I always looked up to you
Now we're left cold and sad
By someone the devil's best friend
Someone who offended all.

We're living in a bad dream
They've forgotten all about mankind
And you were the one they backed up to the wall
All those years ago
Yeah, you were the one who Imagined it all
All those years ago.

All those years ago
All those years ago

Deep in the darkest night
I send out a prayer to you
Now in the world of light
Where the spirit free of the lies
And all else that we despised.

They've forgotten all about God
He's the only reason we exist
Yet you were the one that they said was so weird
All those years ago
You said it all though not many had ears
All those years ago
You had control of our smiles and our tears
All those years ago

All those years ago
All those years ago
All those years ago
All those years ago

Yeah, you were the one who Imagined it all
All those years ago

A good article on being grateful not grate..full ;)

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: The Secret <scrolls@thesecret.tv>

Subject: The Secret Scrolls - From The Secret Daily Teachings
To: dinesh mahesh kumar <dineshkrishna108@gmail.com>

A Secret Scrolls message from Rhonda Byrne
Creator of The Secret

Excerpt from The Secret Daily Teachings

Remember, if you are criticizing, you are not being grateful. If
you are blaming, you are not being grateful. If you are
complaining, you are not being grateful. If you are feeling
tension, you are not being grateful. If you are rushing, you are
not being grateful. If you are in a bad mood, you are not being
grateful.

Gratitude can transform your life. Are you allowing minor things to
get in the way of your transformation and the life you deserve?

May the joy be with you,


Rhonda Byrne

Daily BG sms in Jan 10

From BhagavadGita,1.V must learn Wat God is,2.Wat d Living
Entities(we) r,3.Wat nature is,4.How it is ctrld by Time,5.Wat d
activities of d Living Entities r.

What is God? God by definition must've d qualities such as 1.Knowledge
2.Wealth
3.Power
4.Beauty
5.Fame
6.Renunciation
All4 100%.God cant b manufactured.God remains God@all times.Not that,a
man by yoga practice becomes God.God is d
SupremeController&NeverControlled.Nature&d LivingEntities r ctrld by
Him.

Wat is Nature?
There is no reason not2believe in God.But there is every reason2do
so.Everything is created by some1.V never heard of any machine coming
by chance.If so,is it not foolish2think that D Stars,d Sky,d Sun,d
Moon,d Earth came in2existence by chance.BigBang theory is
BlindFaith,not Belief in God

Wat r Living Entities
1.Souls In quality1with God but not in quantity.
2.Individually conscious(eg.I cant feel d pain in ur body but only in
mine).But God is supremely conscious.
3.Influenced by 3modes Goodness,Passion,Ignorance.
4.Bound by d reactions of his actions birth after birth in different bodies.

Wat r d activities of Living Entity? Primarily engaged in d animal pursuits of
1.Eating
2.Sleeping
3.Mating
4.Defending
Without inquiring what d purpose of Human Life is? Humanity begins
with this inquiry,Where I came from? Why am I suffering? Where will I
go after death.How2make solution2all suffering?

Wat is Time?
The actions r performed by d Living Entity with reference2d time.The
Living Entity does not know d time factor in which he is carried away
in life,just as clouds getting carried away by strong winds. D
reactions of actions r time framed,some r in Fructifying stage,while
others r yet2come.

"My Body" means Im different from this body.So There's some1who
possess d body.(Soul)He's d real self."Some look on d Soul as
amazing,some describe him as amazing,some hear of him as amazing,while
others even after hearing abt him cant understand him@all.Soul can
never b killed.So Not2grieve4any1"-BG:2.29

"Being desirous of sense enjoyment&opulent(rich) life they say that
there is nothing more than this! In d minds of those who r too
attached2sense enjoyment&wealth,d resolute determination4devotional
service2d SupremeLord doesnt take place"-Lord Sri Krsna in
BhagavadGita:2.43

According2Vedic injunctions there r 6kinds of Aggressors who can b
killed@once without incurring sin.
1.A poison giver 2.One who sets fire2dHouse 3.One who attacks with
deadly weapons. 4.One who plunders riches 5.One who occupies another's
land 6.One who kidnaps another's wife.

In d MaterialWorld,1 who is unaffected by whatever good r evil he may
obtain,neither praising it nor despising it,is firmly fixed in
PerfectKnowledge.1 who is able2withdraw his Senses from d
SenseObjects,just as d tortoise draws its limbs within d shell,is
firmly fixed in PerfectConsciousness.-BG:2.57-58

Daily BG sms earlier in feb 10

1.Action,2.Food,3.Sacrifices,4.Austerity,5.Charity,all these fall
under different modes such as goodness,passion,ignorance. Action in
1.Goodness-appears like poison in d beginning but nectar in d
end.eg.studying4exams 2.Passion appears nectar initially but poison
later.3.Ignorance-miserable@all times-BG

"The non-permanent appearance of happiness&distress&their
disappearance in due course is like d summer&winter seasons.They arise
from sense perception.1 must learn2tolerate them without being
disturbed.A person who isnt disturbed by
happiness&distress&steady@both is certainly eligible4liberation"-BG2

As a person puts on new garments giving up older1s d Soul similarly
accepts new material body,giving up old&useless1s.d Soul can never b
cut in2pieces by any weapon,nor burnt by fire,nor moistened by
water,nor withered by d wind.Soul is
unbreakable&insoluble,unchangeable,immovable&eternally d same-BG2.13

"How've these impurities come upon u. They r not@all befitting a man
who knows d valueOfLife. They lead not2higher planets but2infamy.Do
not yield2this degrading impotence.It doesnt bcome u. Give up such
petty weakness&arise O chastiser of enemy"-Krsna2Arjuna in
BhagavadGita:Chapter 2

While speaking learned words u r mourning4what is not worthy of
grief.Those who r wise lament,neither4d Living nor4d dead.Never was
there a time v didnt exist nor in d future shall any of us cease2be.As
d embodied Soul passes from boyhood2youth2old age,d Soul similarly
passes in2another body@death",BG2.11

A Person who is not disturbed by d incessant flow of desires that
enter like Rivers in2d Ocean which is ever being filled but always
remain still(Ocean unagitated even during rainy reason),can alone
achieve LastingPeace&not he who Strives2Satisfy such
Desires-LordSriKrsna In BhagavadGita (SongOfGod) 2.70

"Now I am confused abt my duty&ve lost all composure bcoz of this
miserly weakness.In this condition I am asking U2tell me4certain what
is best4me.Now I am Ur disciple&a Soul surrendered unto You.Pls

If you find yourself struggling with chanting or the four regulative principles.



Tips for the Struggle


If you find yourself struggling with chanting or the four regulative principles, don't be alarmed, it is natural and to be expected for any individual who makes sacrifices (mental or physical) in order to progress spiritually. In fact, expect challenges as you move forward, be prepared for them and gradually work through them rather than evade them, otherwise they will only come back again and again. Find your own level of manageable practice, even though initially it may appear to be a compromise, gradually work up to the ideal, it may take weeks……., months………, or even years! But, sincerely persevere and the Lord within the heart will reciprocate.


Whenever there is a human impulse, our tendency is to respond immediately without even contemplating the outcome. In reality there exists a short moment between an impulse and a response, catch yourself during this short moment, think first, then act. If this thinking is based on principled directions (or scripture), you will succeed in holding back the force of unwarranted impulses.
Remember, whilst striving for the highest spiritual principles, we still have responsibilities to our spouses, children and friends. We must be conscious of their needs before imposing our own.


In all cases of upholding any vows, the key principle is DESIRE, half of the battle is won if we ourselves make a conscious decision to follow a practice rather than feel obliged to do so – so desire it!

Things to do

· Pray to Krishna for strength and direction. · Learn to take shelter in chanting, this will help to transform your heart. · Find your own maintainable level of devotional practice, one which will gradually enable you to reach the ideal rather than an unrealistic and unachievable end which will only frustrate you. · Associate with those who have a slightly higher level of practice than you do (those who are also struggling but maintaining higher standards). · Practice some level of self discipline, it is the genuine path to higher enjoyment.

-- HH Bhakti Tirtha Swami Maharaj

other planets.If v dont want2accept things beyond our experience it's
our foolishness.V cant live in water :(,it doesnt mean no life exists

If a dog with bread in mouth sees himself in d water,he thinks another
