yah sastra-vidhim utsrjya
vartate kama-karatah
na sa siddhim avapnoti
na sukham na param gatim

yah--anyone who; sastra-vidhim--the regulations of the scriptures;
utsrjya--giving up; vartate--remains; kama-karatah--acting whimsically
in lust; na--never; sah--he; siddhim--perfection; avapnoti--achieves;
na--never; sukham--happiness; na--never; param--the supreme;
gatim--perfectional stage.

He who discards scriptural injunctions and acts according to his own
whims attains neither perfection, nor happiness, nor the supreme

PURPORT by HDG Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
As described before, the sastra-vidhi, or the direction of the sastra,
is given to the different castes and orders of human society. Everyone
is expected to follow these rules and regulations. If one does not
follow them and acts whimsically according to his lust, greed and
desire, then he never will be perfect in his life. In other words, a
man may theoretically know all these things, but if he does not apply
them in his own life, then he is to be known as the lowest of mankind.
In the human form of life, a living entity is expected to be sane and
to follow the regulations given for elevating his life to the highest
platform, but if he does not follow them, then he degrades himself.
But even if he follows the rules and regulations and moral principles
and ultimately does not come to the stage of understanding the Supreme
Lord, then all his knowledge becomes spoiled. And even if he accepts
the existence of God, if he does not engage himself in the service of
the Lord his attempts are spoiled. Therefore one should gradually
raise himself to the platform of Krsna consciousness and devotional
service; it is then and there that he can attain the highest
perfectional stage, not otherwise.

The word kama-karatah is very significant. A person who knowingly
violates the rules acts in lust. He knows that this is forbidden, but
still he acts. This is called acting whimsically. He knows that this
should be done, but still he does not do it; therefore he is called
whimsical. Such persons are destined to be condemned by the Supreme
Lord. Such persons cannot have the perfection which is meant for the
human life. The human life is especially meant for purifying one's
existence, and one who does not follow the rules and regulations
cannot purify himself, nor can he attain the real stage of happiness.

"By intense service of the Lord, one can experience the presence of the
Lord transcendentally. Therefore seeing the Lord means being engaged in
His service because His service and His person are identical."
(Srimad Bhagavatam 1:6:22)
"O Brahmana Vyasadeva, it is decided by the learned that the best remedial
measure for removing all troubles and miseries is to dedicate one's
activities to the service of the Supreme Lord Personality of Godhead."
(Srimad Bhagavatam 1:5:32)

"The virtuous descendent of the Raghu dynasty (Sri Raam) easily lifted high the bow in the assembly as thousands of suitors looked on. Having raised it, that mighty Raam did what non-else could do, in stringing it taunt, moreover snapping the bow in two."

Valmiki Ramayan 1:66:16-17.
vitarasi diksu rane dikpatikamaniyam
dasamukhamaulibalim ramaniyam
keshava dhrtaramasarira jaya jagadisa hare

 O Keshava! O Lord of the universe! O Lord Hari, who haze assumed the form of Ramacandra! All glories to You! In the battle of Lanka You destroy the tenheaded demon Ravana and distribute his heads as a delightful offering to the presiding deities of the ten directions, headed by Indira. This action was long desired by all of them, who were much harassed by this monster.

"Recently, my family and I dined in a vegetarian cafe in New York City.

This concise and well-written booklet explores health, environmental, and ethical issues. By simply stating the facts rather than using scare

I had a dream the other night. I was in the old West riding in a stagecoach.
Suddenly, a man riding a horse pulls up to the left side of the stagecoach, and
a riderless horse pulls up on the right.

The man leans down, pulls open the door, and jumps off his horse into the
stagecoach. Then he opens the door on the other side and jumps onto the
other horse.

Just before he rode off, I yelled out, "What was all that about?"

He replied, "Nothing. It's just a stage I'm going through."

A humorous, poetic look at cloning.
Mary had a little lamb; whose fleece was slightly gray,
Didn't have a father just borrowed some DNA,
Sort of had a mother though the ovum was on loan,
Was not so much a lambkin as a little lamby clone
Soon it had a fellow clone and soon there was some more,
They followed her to school one day all cramming through the door,
It made the children laugh and sing and thrilled them to the soul,
But there was just too many lambs for Mary to control,
No one else could herd the sheep their imprints didn't vary,
The cloners sought to fix it up by simply cloning Mary,
So clone they did and Newsweek said it was extraordinary,
But now they don't know what to do with Mary, Mary, Mary,.......

which holds that it is impossible to be sure of basic information about reality.
But what if the Uncertainty Principle is itself affected by uncertainty, meaning
we'll never really know if it's true? For example, historians believe that the
Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle was devised by a man named Werner
Heisenberg. But no one was ever able to obtain a photography of exactly what
Heisenberg looked like--in snapshots, he appears as a sort of blur--and the
famous researcher was impossible to contact because he would list his
address only as "somewhere in Europe." Given this, we cannot rule out that
uncertainty itself invalidates the Uncertainty Principle, leaving all modern
physics in a state of unresolved crisis--which would be ideal from the
standpoint of next year's budget requests.

According to astronomers, up to 90% of the matter that ought to exist in the universe appears to be missing. This is the kind of mismanagement that makes any corporate company look good. One theory is that the missing mass was shipped to the wrong address. Another theory holds that the missing mass isn't missing at all, it's just being hoarded by speculators. But just think of it, most of the universe has been misplaced! When those responsible are found, heads should roll.
Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you
learn in school. But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really
haven't learned anything.
