yaya dharmam adharmam ca
karyam cakaryam eva ca
ayathavat prajanati
buddhih sa partha rajasi

yaya--by which; dharmam--the principles of religion;
adharmam--irreligion; ca--and; karyam--what ought to be done;
ca--also; akaryam--what ought not to be done; eva--certainly;
ca--also; ayatha-vat--imperfectly; prajanati--knows;
buddhih--intelligence; sa--that; partha--O son of Prtha; rajasi--in
the mode of passion.

O son of Prtha, that understanding which cannot distinguish between
religion and irreligion, between action that should be done and
action that should not be done, is in the mode of passion.

18 Ch 32 TEXT 32

adharmam dharmam iti ya
manyate tamasavrta
sarvarthan viparitams ca
buddhih sa partha tamasi

adharmam--irreligion; dharmam--religion; iti--thus; ya--which;
manyate--thinks; tamasa--by illusion; avrta--covered;
sarva-arthan--all things; viparitan--in the wrong direction;
ca--also; buddhih--intelligence; sa--that; partha--O son of Prtha;
tamasi--in the mode of ignorance.

That understanding which considers irreligion to be religion and
religion to be irreligion, under the spell of illusion and
darkness, and strives always in the wrong direction, O Partha, is
in the mode of ignorance.

PURPORT by HDG Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupad:
Intelligence in the mode of ignorance is always working the
opposite of the way it should. It accepts religions which are not
actually religions and rejects actual religion. Men in ignorance
understand a great soul to be a common man and accept a common man
as a great soul. They think truth to be untruth and accept untruth
as truth. In all activities they simply take the wrong path;
therefore their intelligence is in the mode of ignorance.

God is, in truth, the whole universe: what was, what is and what's beyond,
and shall ever be. He is the God of life immortal and of all life that lives
by food. His hands and feet are everywhere. He has heads and mouths
everywhere. He sees all, He hears all. He is in all, and He Is.

Krishna Yajur Veda, Svetasvatara Upanishads 3.15
Krishna Surya Sama, Maya Hoy Andhakar;
Jaha Krishna Taha Nai Mayar Adhikar!

Sri Krishna is like a glowing and blazing Sun while Maya is the darkness / ignorance;
Where there is Sri Krishna, Maya (ignorance / misery / darknes) has no dominion there!

Sri Chaitanya-charitamrita Madhya lila 22:31
Said the sage Sanatkumara to Narada: "Control the senses and purify the mind. In a pure mind there is constant awareness of the Self. Where there is constant awareness of the Self, freedom ends bondage and joy ends Sorrow."

-Chandogya Upanishad
bhukti-mukti-siddhi-kämi ‘subuddhi’ yadi haya
gadha-bhakti-yoge tabe krishnere bhajaya

“Due to bad association, the living entity desires material happiness, liberation or merging into the impersonal aspect of the Lord, or he engages in mystic yoga for material power. If such a person actually becomes intelligent, he takes to Krishna consciousness by engaging himself in intense devotional service to Lord Shr Krishna."

Shri Chaitanya Charitamrita Madhya lila 22:35.
He is God, hidden in all beings, their inner-most soul who is in all. He
watches the works of creation, lives in all things, watches all things.
He is pure consciousness, beyond the three conditions of nature.

Krishna Yajur Veda, Svetasvatara Upanishads 6.11.
yadricchayä mat-kathädau
jäta-shraddhas tu yah pumän
na nirvinno näti-sakto
bhakti-yogo ’sya siddhi-dah

“‘Somehow or other, if one is attracted to talks about Me and has faith in the instructions I have set forth in the Bhagavad-gitä, and if one is neither falsely detached from material things nor very much attracted to material existence, his dormant love for Me will be awakened by devotional service.’

Shrimad-Bhägavatam 11:20:8.
Please chant:

“‘By pouring water on the root of a tree, one automatically satisfies the trunk, branches and twigs. Similarly, by supplying food to the stomach, where it nourishes the life air, one satisfies all the senses. In the same way, by worshiping Sri Krishna and rendering Him service, one automatically satisfies all the demigods (devas).’

Shrimad-Bhägavatam 4:31:14.

“‘Whenever Krishna is requested to fulfill one’s desire, He undoubtedly does so, but He does not award anything which, after being enjoyed, will cause one to petition Him again and again to fulfill further desires. When one has other desires but engages in the Lord’s service, Krishna forcibly gives one shelter at His lotus feet, where one will forget all other desires.’

“[When he was being blessed by the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Dhruva Mahäräja said:] ‘O my Lord, because I was seeking an opulent material position, I was performing severe types of penance and austerity. Now I have gotten You, who are very difficult for the great demigods, saintly persons and kings to attain. I was searching after a piece of glass, but instead I have found a most valuable jewel. Therefore I am so satisfied that I do not wish to ask any benediction from You.’

Hundreds of Thousands Witness Puri Car festival

PURI, INDIA, June 23, 2001: Over 800,000 devotees witnessed the famous car
festival of Lord Jagannath, His elder brother Lord Balabhadra and sister
Goddess Subhadra in the pilgrim town of Puri on Saturday. The downpour and
power failure on Friday night didn't deter devotees who thronged to
celebrate the annual sojourn of the Lord. The "Mangala Arati" of the deities
started at about 5:00 am and was followed by other rituals. The festival
then witnessed one of its finest moments when the three deities were brought
out of the temple to their respective chariots in a spectacular procession
called "Pahandi." The Shankaracharya of Gobardhan Peetha, Puri, Swami
Neeschalananda Saraswati, was the first to have a "darshan," or sight, of
the three deities on their chariots. There was a mad scramble to hold the
ropes of the chariots, a lifetime wish of the devotees who had come from all
corners of the country and abroad to witness the famous festival.

Tracing the Synapses of Spirituality


PHILADELPHIA, USA, June 17, 2001: What creates that transcendental feeling
of being one with the universe? Scientists are asking whether spirituality
can be explained in terms of neural networks, neurotransmitters and brain
chemistry. Using powerful brain imaging technology, researchers are
exploring what mystics call nirvana, and what Christians describe as a state
of grace. In an experiment to recreate a spiritual experience in the brain,
a volunteer wears headgear that produces an electromagnetic pattern on a
computer program. "The brain is set up in such a way as to have spiritual
and religious experiences," said Andrew Newberg, a Philadelphia scientist
who authored the book "Why God Won't Go Away." "Unless there is a
fundamental change in the brain, religion and spirituality will be here for
a very long time. The brain is predisposed to having those experiences and
that is why so many people believe in God."

Courtesy of
Like a tortoise withdrawing five limbs into its shell, those who
Restrain the five senses in one life, will find safe shelter for seven.
Whatever you may fail to guard, guard well your tongue,
For flawed speech unfailingly invokes anguish and affliction.
By a single word of injury
Do all a man's virtues lose their goodness.
The wound caused by fire heals in its time;
The burn inflicted by an inflamed tongue never heals.

-Tirukkural 13: 126-129

On Integrity:

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”

Mahatma Gandhi

It's important to have roots.
In today's complex world, it pays to branch out.
If you really believe in something, don't be afraid to
go out on a limb.
Be flexible so you don't break when a harsh wind blows.
Sometimes you have to shed your old bark in order to grow.
If you want to maintain accurate records, keep a log.
It's okay to be a late bloomer.
Avoid people who would like to cut you down.
As you approach the autumn of your life, you will show your true colors.
You could be Brilliant! in other words "bloom where you are planted."

"Astronomical calculations of stellar influences upon a living being are
not suppositions, but are factual, as confirmed in Srimad-Bhagavatam. Every
living being is controlled by the laws of nature at every minute, just as a
citizen is controlled by the influence of the state. The state laws are
grossly observed, but the laws of material nature, being subtle to our
gross understanding, cannot be experienced grossly. As stated in the
Bhagavad-gita (3.9), every action of life produces another reaction, which
is binding upon us, and only those who are acting on behalf of Yajna
(Vishnu) are not bound by reactions. Our actions are judged by the higher
authorities, the agents of the Lord, and thus we are awarded bodies
according to our activities. The law of nature is so subtle that every part
of our body is influenced by the respective stars, and a living being
obtains his working body to fulfill his terms of imprisonment by the
manipulation of such astronomical influence." (Srimad Bhagavatam 1:12:12)

Emotional Wellness

Forgive Their Trespasses - moving on.............

Science is beginning to verify advice long given by spiritual
leaders and wise moms and dads: Nursing grudges against those
who have done you wrong will hurt you worse than it hurts them.
New work shows it can contribute to emotional problems and even
heart disease. June 17 to 23 was National Forgiveness Week,
an ideal time to work at finding it in your heart to save your
heart by forgiving those who've trespassed against you.

Some animals like to get down in the mud and start throwing it at those who hurt them.
But all that happens is that you get covered in their muck, and the pigs have a real good time.

Emotional forgiveness continued
"The man who views the world at fifty the same as he
did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life."

- Muhammad Ali
People are like stained glass windows: they sparkle and shine when the sun's out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is light within.

-Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

A man traveling down a country road in Queenstown after a major storm was forced to stop before a giant stream covering the entire road. Looking to the side of the road, the man noticed a beautiful blonde woman who had come down her lane to check the mailbox.
"Think it's safe to cross?" the man asked.
"Sure it is" she replied.

On her "local knowledge" he drove the car into the waters. The car was immediately swallowed by the water as the man drove in. In fact, it was so deep that he had to roll his window down to swim out of his car back to the surface.

As his head broke the surface the man said to the woman, "I thought you said I could safely drive through this!"

"Well,!" said the woman, scratching her head. "It only comes up chest-high on my ducks!"

Never test the water with both feet.

I'm sure you'll think of others..........
A skinhead and his girlfriend were walking down Main Street when she spotted a beautiful diamond ring in a jewelry store window. "Wow, I'd sure love to have that!" she said.
"No problem, babe," the skinhead said, throwing a brick through the glass and grabbing the ring.
A few blocks later, his girlfriend was admiring a black leather jacket in another shop window. "Wow, what I'd give to own that!" she said.

"Sure fing, darlin'," the skinhead said, throwing another brick through the window and snatching the coat.

Finally, turning for home, they pass a Mercedes car dealership. "Boy, I'd do anything for one of those!" she said to her boyfriend.

"Whoa, hang on babe!" the skinhead cried. "Do you fink I'm made a bricks or somefing!"
A traveler was stumbling through the desert, desperate for water, when he saw something far off in the distance.

Hoping to find water, he walked toward the image, only to find a little old peddler sitting at a card table with a bunch of ties laid out for sale.

The parched wanderer asked, "Please, I'm dying of thirst, can I have some water?"

The man replied "I don't have any water, but why don't you buy a tie? Here's one that goes nicely with your clothes."

The desperate man shouted, "I don't want a tie, you idiot, I need water!"

"OK, don't buy a tie. But to show you what a nice guy I am, I'll tell you that over that hill there, about 5 miles, is a nice restaurant. Walk that way, they'll give you all the water you want."

The man thanked the peddler and walked away toward the hill and eventually disappeared out of sight. Three hours later he returned. The man at the card table asked, "I told you, about 5 miles over that hill. Couldn't you find it?"

"I found it all right. They wouldn't let me in without a tie."
The Cowboy

A cowboy rode into town and stopped at a saloon for a drink of soda. Unfortunately, the locals always had a habit of picking on strangers. When he finished his drink, he found his horse had been stolen. He goes back into the bar, flips his gun into the air, catches it above his head without even looking and fires a shot into the ceiling."WHICH ONE OF YOU SIDEWINDERS STOLE MY HOSS?"
he yelled with surprising forcefulness.

No one answered.

Some of the locals shifted restlessly. He had another drink of soda, walked outside, and his horse is back! He saddles-up and starts to ride out of town. The bartender wanders out of the bar and asks, "Say pardner, before you go...
...what happened in Texas?"
The cowboy turned back and said, "I had to walk home."

There's an interesting story of Narada Muni initiating a cobra, snake. Narada had accepted the cobra as a disciple, and at his initiation ceremony the snake had promised to follow the four regulative principles. But Narada Muni requested one more discipline of him, and said: "Don't bite anyone."
Having heard the snake wouldn't bite anyone any more, all the children started throwing sticks and stones at him, and calling him bad names and generally abusing him as he slithered through town the next day. The snake returned to Narada Muni's ashrama that evening and a bit upset, complained about the children taunting him.

Narada Muni chastised his unique disciple, saying, "I instructed you not to bite, but I didn't tell you to give up your intelligence! If the children come near you again, simply show your hood like you are going to bite... then they'll all run away!"
Santa Singh was in court charged with parking her car in a restricted area.
The judge asked her if she had anything to say in her defense.

"They should not put up such misleading notices", said Santa.

There was an old professor who started every class with a vulgar joke.
After one particularly nasty example, Two of the women in the class
(Emmy and Ella) decided to walk out the next time he started.

The professor got wind of this plot (Baku told him), so the next morning
he walked in and said, "Good morning, class. Did you hear the one about
the shortage of prostitutes in India?"

With that, Emmy and Ella stood up and headed for the door.

"Wait, ladies," cried the professor.
"The next plane doesn't leave until tomorrow!"
Two devotees were discussing about the pronunciation of the holy place of
Vraja - Sri Vrindavan Dham.

"Panditji, how is that possible?"

CAUTION: Alligator Warning

The Florida Department of Fish and Wildlife is advising hikers, hunters,
fishers, and golfers to take extra precautions and keep alert for alligators
while in Seminole, Osceola, Polk, Orange, Brevard, Manatee, Sarasota, St.
Lucie, Martin, and Palm Beach Counties.

They advise people to wear noise-producing devices such as little bells on
their clothing to alert but not startle the alligators. It is also a good
idea to watch for fresh signs of alligator activity.

People should recognize the difference between the droppings of small young
alligators and large adult alligators.

Young alligator droppings are smaller and contain fish bones, small turtle
shells and possibly bird feathers.

Adult alligator droppings have little bells in them.

Animal Rights Newsletter 06/23/01

This elderly man was at home, dying in bed.
He smelled the aroma of his favourite cookies baking. He wanted one last cookie before he died. He fell out of bed, crawled to the landing, rolled down the stairs, and crawled into the kitchen where his wife was busily baking cookies. With waning strength he crawled to the table and was just barely able to lift his withered arm to the cookie sheet.
As he grasped a warm, moist, Anzac cookie, his favourite kind, his wife suddenly whacked his hand with a spatula.
"Why did you do that?" he whispered.
"They're not offered yet, and besides they're for the funeral" she replied.

Have you ever been in this situation: It's a hot humid night and you are having a hard time getting to sleep. You are moving your pillow around trying to find the "cool spot." You finally get comfortable, and then you hear that familiar "Bzzzzzzzzt." Yes, there is a mosquito flying around your head. You jump up and begin to swat around trying to knock it out of the air. . .
What is the point of this little story. What you evidently didn't know is that the female mosquito is the quiet one that bites and sucks your blood to feed her young, and the male mosquito is the one that makes the buzzing sound. So next time you are having trouble sleeping and you just get comfortable, listen closely and if you hear a "Bzzzzzzzzt" just go to sleep. But if you hear nothing you'd better get up and start swatting. ( ??? )
What Breed Is That?

After buying a puppy for $40 from a stranger, Bruno Alti of Milan, Italy couldn't
help wondering why the dog never barked.

He took the pet to his local vet who quickly spotted the problem and informed
Alti that what he had bought wasn't a dog, but a lion cub.
Doctor to patient:

I have good news and bad news: the good news is that you are not a hypochondriac.
There are three signs of old age. The first is your loss of memory, the other two I forget....
"When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so
ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around.
But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished by how
much he'd learned in seven years."

- Mark Twain.
A sign of the times:

When my son was in third grade, his teacher
asked him to spell "straight." He did so correctly.

"Now," said the teacher, "what does it mean?"
"Without water," he replied.
I'm lost .........

But now I've gone to look for myself.

If I should return here in the interim before I get back home, please ask me to wait =>:-))
