On-line Bhagavad Gita As It Is:
Of all dreaded maladies, saàsära is the worst, because it includes
all other diseases. As long as we are bound to take birth in the
material world, we must inevitably expose ourselves to cancers,
heart attacks, AIDS, and so on. All cures within this world are
temporary because even if we are cured of one disease, we will
eventually contract another, either in the present life or a
future one. As with our attempts for happiness, our attempts
for health must fail sooner or later.
In previous ages in India, a criminal would sometimes be
strapped to a chair and immersed in water almost to the point
of drowning. Upon being brought up, he felt great relief—only
to be plunged under again by his torturers. Similarly, the
times when we are pain-free and happy are like the few seconds
of relief the prisoner feels when he is brought up from under
water. The basic principle of material life is suffering.
Therefore we should be very eager to receive the medicine
that will cure all our diseases. The word nirväëa in this
verse refers to the permanent cessation of samsära and its
attendant miseries. Nirväna has become famous from the teachings
of Buddhism, but the voidistic liberation the Buddhists teach
is unnatural for the living entity, and thus it is temporary.
We can find factual, permanent release from pain only in the
kind of liberation King Kulashekhara refers to here: the
liberation of a devotee engaged in eternal service to the
Supreme Personality of Godhead. When through the process of
devotional service we become free of all material desires
and attain pure love of God, we will be transferred to the
Vaikuntha realm, where there are no anxieties or suffering.
At the beginning of the Tenth Canto of the Shrimad-Bhägavatam
(10:1:4), King Parikshit also uses the word aushadhi (“medicine”)
to refer to the chanting and hearing of krsna-kathä, or words
about Krsna: “Descriptions of the Lord are the right medicine
for the conditioned soul undergoing repeated birth and death.”
Such descriptions, of course, include the chanting and hearing
of the Lord’s holy name.
As with any bona fide medicine, one should take the nectarean
potion of the holy name under the guidance of experts, in this
case sages and the spiritual master. The Supreme Lord’s names
vary with His different pastimes and relationships with His pure
devotees. He appeared as the son of Mother Yashodä and also as the
son of Mother Devaki, and therefore He is named Devaki-nandana
and Yashodä-nandana. One should receive the Lord’s authorized
names from the spiritual master in disciplic succession.
The shästras recommend which names we should chant. For example,
the Kali-santaraëa Upanishad recommends the Hare Krsna mahä-mantra:
Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare/ Hare Räma, Hare Räma,
Räma Räma, Hare Hare. We don’t have to search for some name or
manufacture one. Rather, we must follow the saintly persons and
the shästras in chanting the Lord’s holy names, as Shrila
Prabhupäda recommends in his Shrimad-Bhägavatam (8.1.13, purport).
(A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Mukunda Mala stotram 16. purport)
 Hopes are but the dreams of those who are awake.

                                          Pindar (B.C. 518?-438)
On a long journey of human life, faith is the best of
companions; it is the best refreshment on the journey;
and it is the greatest property.

                                              Buddha (B.C. 568-488)
yathä suñuptah purusho
vishvam pashyati cätmani
ätmänam eka-desha-stham
manyate svapna utthitah

evam jägaranädini
jiva-sthänäni cätmanah

"When a person is in deep sleep, he dreams and sees in himself
many other objects, such as great mountains and rivers or perhaps
even the entire universe, although they are far away. Sometimes
when one awakens from a dream he sees that he is in a human form,
lying in his bed in one place. Then he sees himself, in terms of
various conditions, as belonging to a particular nationality,
family and so on. All the conditions of deep sleep, dreaming and
wakefulness are but energies of the Supreme Personality of
Godhead. One should always remember the original creator of
these conditions, the Supreme Lord, who is unaffected by them".
(Srimad Bhagavatam text 6:16:53-54.)
None of these conditions of the living entities—namely, deep
sleep, dreaming and wakefulness—is substantial. They are simply
displays of various phases of conditional life. There may be
many mountains, rivers, trees, bees, tigers and snakes that are
situated far away, but in a dream one may imagine them to be
nearby. Similarly, as one has subtle dreams at night, when
the living entity is awake he lives in gross dreams of nation,
community, society, possessions, skyscrapers, bank balance,
position and honor. Under the circumstances, one should know
that his position is due to his contact with the material world.
One is situated in different positions in various forms of
life that are all but creations of the illusory energy, which
works under the direction of the Supreme Personality of
Godhead. Therefore the Supreme Lord is the ultimate actor,
and the conditioned living entity should simply remember
this original actor, Shri Krsna. As living entities, we are
being carried away by the waves of prakriti, or nature, which
works under the Lord’s direction (mayädhyakshena prakåtih
süyate sa-caräcaram [Bg. 9:10]). Bhaktivinoda Thäkura sings,
(miche) mäyära vashe, yäccha bhese’, khäccha häbudubu, bhäi:
“Why are you being carried away by the waves of the illusory
energy in various phases of dreaming and wakefulness? These
are all creations of mäyä.” Our only duty is to remember the
supreme director of this illusory energy—Krsna. For us to do
this, the shästra advises us, harer näma harer näma harer
nämaiva kevalam [Cc. Ädi 17.21]: one should constantly chant
the holy name of the Lord—Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna,
Hare Hare/ Hare Räma, Hare Räma, Räma Räma, Hare Hare.
(A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Srimad Bhagavatam
6:16:53-54. purport.)

 Tips for parents: (15-01-2000) What's new at
In conversations with your child, steer the subject to drugs and why
they're harmful. In fact, teenagers who say they've learned a lot
about the risks of drugs from their parents are much less likely to
try marijuana than those who say they've learned nothing from them.

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson went on a camping trip.

After a good meal and a cup of tea, they lay down for the
night and went to sleep.
Some hours later, Holmes awoke and nudged his faithful friend.
"Watson, look up and tell me what you see."
Watson replied, "I see millions and millions of stars."

"What does that tell you?"
Watson pondered for a minute.  "Astronomically, it tells me
that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions
of planets. Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo.
Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a
quarter past three. Theologically, I can see that God is all
powerful and that we are small and insignificant.
Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a
beautiful day tomorrow.  Why, what does it tell YOU?"
Holmes was silent for a minute, then spoke with focus.

"Watson, you idiot. Some rascal has stolen our tent."
According to a report in the F.O.L.K. Newsletter, with the increase
in materialism in a middle gurukul school in Oregon it was faced with
unique problem. A number of girls were beginning to use lipstick and
would put it on in the bathroom. That was fine, but after they put on
their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens
of little lip prints.

Finally the principal decided that something had to be done. She called all
the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man. She
explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the
custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night.

Then to demonstrate how difficult it was to clean the mirrors, she asked
the maintenance guy to clean one of the mirrors. He took out a long-handled
squeegee, dipped it into the toilet bowl, and then cleaned the mirror.

It's funny that since then there have been no lip prints on the mirror.
There was once an aspiring veterinarian who put himself
through veterinary school working nights as a taxidermist.
Upon graduation, he decided he could combine his two
vocations to better serve the needs of his patients and
their owners, while doubling his practice and, therefore,
his income.
He opened his own offices with a shingle on the door saying,
"Dr. Agarwal, Veterinary Medicine and Taxidermy -- Either way,
you get your dog back!"

Airline Announcements

A plane was taking off from Kennedy Airport. After it reached a comfortable
cruising altitude, the captain made an announcement over the intercom:
"Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. Welcome to Flight
Number 293, nonstop from New York  to Los Angeles. The weather ahead is
good, and therefore we should have a smooth and uneventful flight. Now
sit  back and relax - OH MY GOD!"

...then silence.......

...then, the captain came back on the intercom and said, "Ladies and
Gentlemen, I am so sorry if I scared you earlier, but while I was talking,
the flight attendant brought me a cup of coffee and spilled the hot coffee
in my lap. You should see the front of my pants!"

A devotee in coach shouted, "That's nothing. He should see the back of mine!"

please do it here ... mailto:<>

After some feedback from our readers we are trying to put out the
newsletter twice-monthly, I hope that this is okay with everyone,
and it will be shorter than previous. See you in a couple of weeks.

Some of you who are accessing the newsletter thru' AOL, Hotmail,
or other online servers may be experiencing some challenges in viewing
the linked pages. One of our members overcame it by copying the
newsletter to a Word processor (Word97), or Eudora as a new message,
then to cut and paste the URLs into the browser to view a given page.
It only takes a minute, but if there are easier ways please send to
us and we can post it here. Anything to help.

If you would prefere to receive this newsletter as an announcement
URL of the actual newsletter being posted at our newsletter site,
then please let me know

So far you'll find numbers 1 - 12 that are active.

This newsletter is NEVER sent out unsolicited. If you are receiving
this because of a friend giving us your address, and you would rather
NOT receive mail from us, please send us a message saying Unsubscribe,
or Remove - and we will do the needful immediately.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
