Subject: Tape on Reincarnation
The tape you want is:

#8A-Life, Death & Reincarnation - Readings: Walt Whitman, Gibran
(Side One)

#8B-Life, Death & Reincarnation Readings - J.O. Lucas & Chief Seattle.
(Side Two)

The tape is US$10.00 + $1 Postage.

I would also recommend an excellent book, "Reincarnation, The Phoenix
Fire Mystery" - An East West dialogue on death and rebirth from the
worlds of religion, science, psychology, philosophy, art and literature,

It might further interest you to know that the doctrine of Reincarnation
was taken out of The Bible by Emperor Justinian in 552 AD.  Apparently
The Church doesn't want you to know that the Real You - The Spirit is
Eternal and DOES NOT DIE!

Let there be LIGHT!

In Bhagavad-gitä (4.12) it is said, känkshantah karmanäm siddhim
yajanta iha devatäh: materialists who want quick results in the
material world worship demigods. This is also confirmed in
Shrimad-Bhägavatam. shri-aishvarya-prajepsavah: those who desire
beautiful wives, substantial wealth and many sons worship the
demigods, but an intelligent devotee, instead of being entangled
by the happiness of this material world in the form of a beautiful
wife, material opulence and children, desires to be immediately
transferred back home, back to Godhead. Thus he worships the
Supreme Personality of Godhead, Vishnu.

"I am not the doer, shri Hari is the doer, all the actions that I do
are His worship. Even then, the worship I do is through His grace and
not otherwise. That devotion and the fruits of the actions that come
to me are due to His recurring grace"
If one always practices to do actions with a dedicated spirit to Hari,
in this way, it pleases Vishnu.
               --- Quoted by Sri MadhvAchArya in GitA tAtparya

 When possessed of wealth or learning,
 Low people become proud.
 But even when doubly honored,
 The wise become more humble.

"If your pen, book or your lady be leant to somebody else, they will
not come back, or they will be lost. However if by some trick of
providence any of the above do come back, for sure the pen will be
broken or at best without ink, the book will be torn
or in some way damaged, and the lady will no longer be."

This recipe is from the "Kurma" cookbook "Great Vegetarian Dishes" page 34.

Preparation Time: 50 mins
Dough Rising Time: one and half hours
Baking time: 45 mins
Makes 2 loaves

6 teaspoons (30 ml) fresh yeast
1 tablespoon (20 ml) brown sugar
2 1/2 cups (625 ml) warm water
1/2 (125 ml) gluten flour
2 teaspoons (10 ml) salt
6 cups (1.5 litres) wholemeal flour
1 tablespoon (20 ml) oil
little milk
sesame seeds

1/. Combine the yeast, sugar, and warm water in a small bowl, crumbling
the yeast and mixing it well. Leave this bowl undisturbed in a warm place
for 10 minutes or until frothy.
2/. Combine the gluten flour, salt, and half the wholemeal flour in a
large bowl. Add the yeast and the oil. Mix with a wooden spoon until well
combined. Let it stand, covered, for 30 minutes.
3/. Stir the mixture. Add flour to make a soft dough. Turn the dough out
onto a floured board and knead it for 8-10 minutes or until smooth and
4/. Wash and oil the mixing bowl. Roll the dough into a ball, coat it with
oil, and place it in the bowl, covered. Let it rise in a warm place for one
hour or until it has doubled in size.
5/. Punch down the dough with your fist and knead again lightly. Shape it
into 2 loaves. Place the loaves into oiled loaf tins and cover them,
placing them in a warm spot for another 30 minutes or until doubled in
size. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 200 Centigrade/Celsius - 390 F.
6/. Brush the risen loaves with milk and sprinkle them with sesame seeds.
Place them in the hot oven and cook for about 45 minutes or until golden,
crisp, and hollow-sounding when tapped. Remove the tins from the oven and
let stand for 10 miutes.

Now you can carefully invert the bread tins and turn out the loaves, placing them on cooling racks. When the loaves are completely cool, slice and use as required.

A policeman stopped a motorist who had just gone through a stop
sign, and was about to give him ticket when the motorist said,
"Officer, you can't give me a ticket for that!"
"Why not?" asked the officer.
"Because although I did not stop, the way was clear and it was safe,
so I slowed right down, and it's almost the same." The officer then
pulled out his baton and started hitting the motorist.
" What are you doing!" yelled the motorist in surprise.

"Mow, do you want me to slow down or stop?" asked the officer.

A tourist walked into a pet shop and was looking at the animals on
display. While he was there another customer walked in and said to
the shopkeeper, "I'll have a C monkey please."
The shopkeeper nodded, went over to a cage at the side of the shop,
and took out a monkey.  He fit a collar and leash and handed it to
the customer, saying, "That will be $5,000."  The customer paid and
walked out with his monkey.
Startled, the tourist went over to the shopkeeper and said, "That
was a very expensive monkey.  Most of them are only a few hundred
dollars.  Why did it cost so much?"
The shopkeeper answered, "Ah, that monkey can program in C - very
fast, tight code, no bugs, well worth it!"
The tourist looked at the monkey in another cage.  "That one's even
more expensive-$10,000!  What does it do?" "Oh, that one's a C++
monkey; it can manage object-oriented programming, Visual C++, even
some Java.  All the really useful stuff," said the shopkeeper.
The tourist looked around for a little longer and saw a third monkey
in a cage of its own.  The price tag around its neck read $50,000.
She gasped to the shopkeeper, "That one costs more than all the
others put together! What on earth does it do?"
The shopkeeper replied, "Well, I haven't actually seen it do anything,
but it says it's a consultant."

One day, Granma (Didima) Patel sent her grandson Little Anil down
to the water hole to get some water for cooking dinner.  As he was
dipping the bucket in, he saw two big eyes looking back at him.  He
dropped the bucket and hightailed it for Granma's kitchen.

"Well now, Beta, where's my bucket and where's my water?" Granma asked him.

"I can't get any water from that water hole, Didima" exclaimed Little
Anil.  "There's a BIG ol' alligator down there!"

"Now don't you mind that ol' alligator, Beta. He's been there for a
few years now, and he's never hurt no one.  Why, he's probably as
scared of you as you are of him!"

"Well, Didima," replied Little Anil, "...if he's as scared of me as
I am of him, then that water isn't fit to drink or cook with!"
A beggar stopped a man on the street and said :  "A couple of years
ago you used to give me ten rupees each time. Last year you reduced
it to five and this year you are giving only one. Why?
The man said, "Then I was a bachelor, last year I got married and
this year we have a child.
"What," said the irate beggar, "you're using my money to support
your family."

This is the way that the conditioned souls think in relation to
the Supreme Lord.

search of a subject on which no one did any research before! As he
was thinking over it, he found a cockroach on the table in from of
him. He decided instantly to do a research on the roach. He picked
the roach and put it in the centre of the table and said: "Run". The
roach ran. He pulled out one leg of the roach, put it again in the
centre of the table and said: "Run". The roach ran.
He pulled one more leg of the roach, put it again in the centre of
the table and said:"Run". The roach ran. This way the roach tried to
run even when it had just one leg.
He pulled last leg of the roach, put it again in the centre of the
table and said: "Run".The roach could not!

thesis: "When you pull out all the legs of a cockroach, it cannot hear

Roger Freeman, an Encino, Calif., dentist and lecturer on infectious
diseases, wants to start an epidemic. Well, not really: his new company is
pushing a line of neckties with magnified pictures of diseases from
microscope slides. "The gonorrhea tie is the best looking tie in the whole
lot," Freeman says, allowing that "The syphilis tie is gorgeous. The
plague tie is pretty, [but] it's sold out." In addition, patterns showing
tuberculosis, herpes, staphylococcus, AIDS, chlamydia, ebola, influenza
and several other pathogens are available.

Don't want to wear your favorite disease around your neck?
Matching underwear is also available.
