So, because of the Lord's Mercy we were spared so much inconveince.
So it seems that because there was so much precaution and care
taken by all that minimal bad effects were recorded.

"May there be good fortune throughtout the universe, and may all
envious persons be pacified. May all living entities become calm
by practicing bhakti-yoga, for by accepting devotional service
they will think of each other's welfare. Therefore let us all
engage in the service of the supreme trancendence, Lord Sri
Krishna, and always remain absorbed in thought of Him."

              "New Millinium Travelling Festival is On"

HH Indradyumna Swami has asked me to inform all of you regarding
the details of the upcoming travelling festival program on the
South Island of New Zealand. We welcome as many devotees as would
like to come.

The travelling festival will take place from January 10th - 30th.
The theme will be 'Spiritual Solutions to Material Problems'.
We will be meeting various dignitaries and VIPs along the way to
offer guidance and advice for a new millenium.

HH Bhakti Bringa Govinda Swami will also be here, with his melodious
kirtan, and flare for Vaishnava cooking.

To keep costs down and make everything simple and easy, we will
generally be staying in public campings. Devotees are expected to
bring their own tents and pay for their own fees at the camping sites.
In a couple of places (ie: Christchurch and Dunedin) we will organize
devotee's and friends' homes for free accomodation.

Devotees must also make their own travel arrangements. We expect many
devotees to travel by public transportion from place to place (bus).

In order to make bookings for campings, we need to know by December
10th (at the latest) exactly how many adults and children will
be coming ...and for how many days.  It is very important that you
contact me on, or before this date, if you plan to come. We cannot
guarantee that late reservations will be accepted.

Everyone who joins us will be asked to contribute $5 per day for
prasadam, children under 12 will be free of charge.

We will have incense, blissballs and stickers available for
distribution, if you need to raise funds as you go.

All devotees will be required to do menial tasks to help with
the general running of the festival;  cleaning duties,  kitchen
service,  bhoga shopping, etc.

Devotees will also be expected to strictly follow a devotional
morning program.

The planned itinerary is as follows.

Perhaps you first notice it in a crowded subway line, or while
waiting for a table at a popular restaurant, or while looking
around at an outdoor concert: The world is a crowded place.
Six billion crowded, as a matter of fact. Every second, five
people are born, and two folks die. That's a net gain of three
people for every click of the clock, according to the folks at
the Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris, the sponsor
of this fascinating site. Look up your age to find out how the
world's population has changed since you were born, what
percentage of the population is still older than you, or even
how many people who were born the same year as you are still
living. Take a trip through the Shockwave-heavy tour to discover
countless facts about the delicate balance that we as humans
maintain here on Earth.

Material life, so much cherished by the nondevotees, is here compared
to a dark hole filled with poisonous snakes. In material life there
is certainly no clear understanding of one’s ultimate identity, of
God or of the universe. Everything is vague and dark. In material
life the poisonous snake of time is always threatening, and at any
moment our near and dear ones will be killed by the mortal fangs
of the serpent. Ultimately, we ourselves will also be bitten and
killed by the poisonous effects of time. The word sampatitam
indicates that the falldown of the living entity is complete. In
other words, he cannot get up again. Sri Uddhava therefore appeals
to the Lord to be kind to these poor fallen souls, humbly
represented by his own self. If one receives the Lord’s mercy,
then even without any further qualification one can go back home,
back to Godhead; and without the mercy of Lord Krishna, the most
learned, austere, powerful, wealthy or beautiful man will be
pathetically crushed by the material world’s machinery of
illusion. The Supreme Personality of Godhead, as described here,
is mahänubhäva, or the greatest, most powerful and most merciful
personality, whose influence extends everywhere. The Lord’s mercy
is manifest in the form of His nectarean instructions such as
Bhagavad-gitä and the Uddhava-gitä, being spoken here. The word
kshudra-sukhoru-tarsham reveals the irony of material existence.
Although material happiness is kshudra, or ridiculous and
insignificant, our desire to enjoy it is uru, tremendous. Our
disproportionate hankering to enjoy dead matter is certainly an
illusory state of mind, and it gives us constant distress,
keeping us bound up in the dark hole of material existence.
Every living entity should put aside his false prestige based on
ephemeral bodily qualifications and appeal sincerely to the
Supreme Lord, Krishna, for His mercy. The Lord hears every sincere
appeal, from even the most fallen soul, and the effects of the
Lord’s mercy are wonderful. Although jnänis, yogis and fruitive
workers are laboriously endeavoring to achieve their respective
goals, their position is precarious and uncertain. Simply by
achieving the mercy of Lord Krishna, however, one can very easily
attain the highest perfection of life. If even one who is not a
great or pure devotee of Lord Krishna sincerely appeals to the
Lord for His mercy, the Lord is sure to give it generously.
(Hridayananda dasa Goswami. Srimad Bhagavatam 11:19:11 purport)
On-line Bhagavad Gita As It Is:
Devotee: Morning, December 13th, Delhi.
Prabhupäda: Dharma, I have explained, occupational duty. So long
we have got this material body we have got particular type of
occupational duty. We are preaching to the world not any
occupational duty but we are preaching eternal duty. This
occupational duty is in connection with the body. That is not
eternal. Suppose this life I’ve got a body, human body, or
brähmana birth, or a son in the Rockefeller family, and
according to that body, I have got a particular type of duty,
standard of living. Deha-yogena dehinäm. But as soon as the
body’s changed, I get another body, the whole duty change. Now
I may have a very comfortable body, American body, Rockefeller
family body, but next life, according to my karma, we are
preparing our next life. Suppose if I get the body of a dog,
then my occupational duty will be (indistinct). Because
according to the body the duty is changed. So these occupational
duties they are not permanent. But I am eternal, na hanyate
hanyamäne sharire [Bhagavad gita. 2:20]. By the destruction
of this body, I am not destroyed. I remain, I simply enter
another body. I, as spiritual soul, I remain. Just like I’m
entering different bodies in this life. I was a child, I
enter another body. Just like this small child, Sarasvati.
According to the body, she is acting. She’s acting sometimes
nonsense, but we take it delight, because she is child. But
the same nonsense if I do in another body, grown up body,
that will be ridiculous. In this child body, she is naked,
but people enjoy it. But when she is grown up and she is
lady-like, she is young girl, if she becomes naked, oh that
is ridiculous. So, here in this life also we see according
to the change of the body, the duty is changed. The activities
are changing. So, this body is changing, that’s a fact.
Tathä dehäntara-präptir dhiras tatra na muhyati [Bhagavad gita.
2:13]. Just like in this life we are changing different types
of bodies, similarly dehäntara-präptir, another body. These
rascals, they do not understand the simple reasoning.
Simple logic they cannot understand, still they argue,
“What is the proof there is transmigration of the soul?” Here
is the proof. That this child, Sarasvati, when she is a
grown-up lady she’ll not act like that. But everyone will
accept her, Sarasvati, the same character (?). Her father,
mother, relatives, everything is there, Sarasvati has got
another body. So what is the difficulty to understand this
logic? That the soul is immortal and the body is changing.
What is the difficulty? Just try to understand, you have to
preach immortality of the soul, transmigration of the soul.
What is the difficulty? Simple logic. What is the difficulty?
Can anyone say? No difficulty? Will you be able to convince
others? (A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. 13th December 1971.
lecture. Delhi, India)

Ignorant persons often think that renounced spiritual life is
meant for those who are impotent or homely or incompetent in
practical worldly affairs. Sometimes foolish people say that
religious life is a crutch for those who are not expert enough
to achieve a high status in society. Therefore King Yadu has
described the qualities of the mendicant brähmana in order to
show that the brähmana has taken to renounced spiritual life
in spite of great potential for worldly success. The avadhüta
brähmana is described as being expert, learned, good-looking,
eloquent and in every sense qualified to be a great material
success. Still, the avadhüta has renounced material life and
taken to Krishna consciousness. Going back home, back to Godhead,
for an eternal life of bliss and knowledge is the real work
of a human being.
The followers of Lord Caitanya Mahäprabhu simultaneously
cultivate their own Krishna consciousness and strenuously
endeavor in missionary work to help others become Krishna
Often foolish persons deride the devotees by saying, “Why don’t
you get a job?” They think that one who is sincerely endeavoring
for spiritual enlightenment and who is also enlightening others
is not doing anything practical. Foolish materialists will pay
millions of dollars to extend their lives by a few weeks or
months in a hospital, but they do not appreciate someone
endeavoring for eternal life. There is no actual logic in
material life. The act of trying to enjoy without Krishna is
in itself the culmination of irrationality, and thus we cannot
expect to find anything ultimately rational or logical in a
materialistic life devoid of Krishna consciousness. Many
devotees of Krishna come from wealthy, learned and influential
families, and they take to Krishna consciousness in order to
perfect their lives, and certainly not due to lack of
opportunity for material advancement. Although sometimes
persons in material distress approach the Supreme Lord for
help in material life, a real devotee of Lord Krishna
voluntarily gives up all types of material enjoyment,
knowing that nothing but love of Krishna and service to
His lotus feet are the actual perfection of life."
(Hridayananda dasa Goswami. Srimad Bhagavatam 11:7:28. purport)
No God, no peace.
Know God, know peace.
I don't have to attend every argument I'm invited to.
from Mari
A person who trims himself to suit everyone will soon enough
whittle himself away.
One should dress to please others, and eat to please oneself.

Something on Positive Association, and an inspirational letter from
Srila Prabhupada:

...some truly interesting nectar here (no pun intended)
Could it be said that the reason that history repeats itself is
because people weren't listening properly the first time?

Dear Friends -

Please accept with no obligation implied or implicit my best
wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible,
low stress, non-addictive, gender neutral, celebration of the
winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable
traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular
practices of your choice, and pursuant to those religious/secular
persuasions and/or traditions of the lack thereof.

The aforementioned best wishes also include a fiscally successful,
personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated recognition of
the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2000, but not
without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures
whose contributions to society have helped make America great,
(not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other
country or is the only "AMERICA" in the western hemisphere), and
without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability,
religious faith, choice of computer platform, or sexual
preference of the wishes.

By accepting this greeting, you are accepting these terms.
This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal.  It is
freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting.
It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of
the wishes for her/himself or others, is void where prohibited by
law, and is revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher.
This wish is warranted to perform as expected within the usual
application of good tidings for a period of one year, or until
the issuance of a  subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes

Warranty is limited to replacement of this wish or issuance of
a new wish of equal or greater value at the sole discretion
of the wisher.

Carefully Yours,

You can tell that it's a strange world where the governments of
some countries are trying to ban fireworks to protect little
children and animals while they are at the same time engaged in
research and manufacturing of nuclear bombs, propergating
violence on TV, open and maintain huge slaughter houses,
allow freedom of choice on abortions, lower the legal age
of concent, and even take taxes from the use of alcohol,
cigarettes and other drugs and substances of addiction and
abuse made available for use by their citizens.
The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has
its limits, where stupidity seems to know no bounds.
All of us could take a lesson from the weather, as it pays no
attention to criticism.
An American Indian devotee was visiting India for the first time,
and began his journey to Vrindavan at the New Delhi railway station
of Hazrat Nizamudin. After getting on the train the T.C. (Ticket
Collector) came up and asked him, "Do you have a reservation?"

"Sure do, heap big place near the Rio Grande!" replied the
native American devotee.
A party of devotees who were on pilgrimage to Mayapura, to do
the Navadwip Parikrama went to a small lodge to spend the night.
The lodge keeper approached them, and they asked if there
were any rooms.

"Ha, rooms available." replied the lodge keeper.
"Any vegetarian food?" they asked.
"Ha, only vegetarian food available." the lodge keeper replied.
"Is there a dhobi?" they asked.
"Yes, dhobi is available."
"Can we arrange transport to take us on pilgrimage tomorrow?"
"Ha, transport, available." the lodge keeper said.
"Are there many mosquitoes here?"
"Ha, Mosquitoes also available." replied the lodge keeper.

At Vege Burger Bar an elderly couple ordered one vege-burger, one
order of fries and one 7UP with two glasses.

When they got to their booth, the man placed a napkin in front
of himself and one in front of his wife, then proceeded to
divide the fries, cut the burger in half and divided the 7UP

A gentleman nearby noticed and offered to buy them another
vege-burger, fries and 7UP.

The woman then said, "No, no you don't understand. We've been
married over 50 years and all our life we agreed to split
everything right down the middle."

Her husband then began eating, as she sat with her hands in
her lap patiently waiting.

The gentleman nearby noticed and asked the lady why she wasn't
eating. Thinking that it must be something to do with her
showing her chastity or old fashioned submission to her
husband he asked her if it was so.

She replied, "As I said before, we split everything right down
the middle, and it's his day to use the teeth first."
