Bhagavad Gita As It Is - Chapter 1 TEXT 15
Observing the Armies on the Battlefield of Kuruksetra

pancajanyam hrsikeso
devadattam dhananjayah
paundram dadhmau maha-sankham
bhima-karma vrkodarah

pancajanyam--the conchshell named Pancajanya; hrsika-isah--Hrsikesa (Krsna, the Lord who directs the senses of the devotees); devadattam--the conchshell named Devadatta; dhanam-jayah--Dhananjaya (Arjuna, the winner of wealth); paundram--the conch named Paundra; dadhmau--blew; maha-sankham--the terrific conchshell; bhima-karma--one who performs herculean tasks; vrka-udarah--the voracious eater (Bhima).

Lord Krsna blew His conchshell, called Pancajanya; Arjuna blew his, the Devadatta; and Bhima, the voracious eater and performer of herculean tasks, blew his terrific conchshell, called Paundra.

PURPORT by HDG Srila A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada:
Lord Krsna is referred to as Hrsikesa in this verse because He is the owner of all senses. The living entities are part and parcel of Him, and therefore the senses of the living entities are also part and parcel of His senses. The impersonalists cannot account for the senses of the living entities, and therefore they are always anxious to describe all living entities as sense-less, or impersonal. The Lord, situated in the hearts of all living entities, directs their senses. But He directs in terms of the surrender of the living entity, and in the case of a pure devotee He directly controls the senses. Here on the Battlefield of Kuruksetra the Lord directly controls the transcendental senses of Arjuna, and thus His particular name of Hrsikesa. The Lord has different names according to His different activities. For example, His name is Madhusudana because He killed the demon of the name Madhu; His name is Govinda because He gives pleasure to the cows and to the senses; His name is Vasudeva because He appeared as the son of Vasudeva; His name is Devaki-nandana because He accepted Devaki as His mother; His name is Yasoda-nandana because He awarded His childhood pastimes to Yasoda at Vrndavana; His name is Partha-sarathi because He worked as charioteer of His friend Arjuna. Similarly, His name is Hrsikesa because He gave direction to Arjuna on the Battlefield of Kuruksetra.

Arjuna is referred to as Dhananjaya in this verse because he helped his elder brother in fetching wealth when it was required by the king to make expenditures for different sacrifices. Similarly, Bhima is known as Vrkodara because he could eat as voraciously as he could perform herculean tasks, such as killing the demon Hidimba. So the particular types of conchshell blown by the different personalities on the side of the Pandavas, beginning with the Lord's, were all very encouraging to the fighting soldiers. On the other side there were no such credits, nor the presence of Lord Krsna, the supreme director, nor that of the goddess of fortune. So they were predestined to lose the battle--and that was the message announced by the sounds of the conchshells.

Biography of Chankhya Pandit on-line:

smartavyash checchatäbhayam

“Everyone who desires to be free from all anxieties should always hear about, glorify and remember the Personality of Godhead, who is the supreme director of everything, the extinguisher of all difficulties, and the Supersoul of all living entities.” (SB 2:1:5)
"The word tattvatah, meaning 'in reality,' is very important. Tato mam tattvato jnatva. Unless one understands Krsna in truth by the mercy of the spiritual master, one is not free to give up his material body. As it is said, aruhya krcchrena param padam tatah patanty adho 'nadrta-yusmad-anghrayah: if one neglects to serve the lotus feet of Krsna, one cannot become free from the material clutches simply by knowledge. Even if one attains the stage of brahma-padam, merging in Brahman, without bhakti he is prone to fall down. One must be very careful in regard to the danger of falling down again into material bondage. THE ONLY INSURANCE IS TO COME TO THE STAGE OF BHAKTI, FROM WHICH ONE IS SURE NOT TO FALL. Then one is free from the activities of the material world. In summary, as stated by Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, one must get in touch with a bona fide spiritual master coming in the parampara of Krsna consciousness, for by his mercy and instructions one is able to get strength from Krsna. Thus one engages in devotional service and attains the ultimate goal of life, the lotus feet of Visnu." (ACBSP. Srimad Bhagavatam. 7.15.45. purport)
"The natural position of the living entity is to serve the Lord in a transcendental loving attitude. When the living entity wants to become Krsna Himself or imitate Krsna, he falls down into the material world." (ACBSP. Srimad Bhagavatam. 4.28.53 Purport)

"By misusing his independence, the living entity falls down from the service of the Lord and takes a position in this material world as an enjoyer. That is to say, the living entity takes his position within a material body. Wanting to take a very exalted position, the living entity instead becomes entangled in a repetition of birth and death. He selects his position as a human being, a demigod, a cat, a dog, a tree, etc. In this way the living entity selects a body out of the 8,400,000 forms and tries to satisfy himself by a variety of material enjoyment." (ACBSP. Srimad Bhagavatam. 4.28.53. Purport)

"The Supreme Lord is the supreme friend of everyone; however, no one can take advantage of the supreme friend's instructions while making his own plans to become happy and entangling himself in the modes of material nature." (ACBSP. Srimad Bhagavatam. 4.28.53. Purport)

.......and your life will become sublime.
"Hinduism" is the ONLY major religion that has not grown by forcing itself upon others through negative destruction of indigenous cultures of the world.

The broad umbrella of "Hinduism" has over one billion adherents worldwide, and is the third-largest religion after Christianity (1.9 billion) and Islam (1.2 billion). But NOTE that both of the latter went on a rampage over previous centuries to destroy other cultures and religions and have "theirs" as the only true faith.

Love cannot be forced, such forcing is obviously rape.

Our understanding that we are not these changing bodies allows peoples of all faiths to embrace the Eternal Absolute Truth through Sanantan Dharma, the Eternal Religion.

Revealing and uncovering the Truths, covered by previous motivated regeims see our InterFaith page , Vedik culture page and their links.

.....anyone can do it, just add the chanting of the Lord's Holy Name.
"'Even a little advancement on this path can protect one from the most dangerous type of fear.' The Supreme Personality of Godhead is known as bhava-grahi janardana because He takes only the essence of a devotee's attitude. If a devotee sincerely surrenders, the Lord, as the Supersoul in everyone's heart, immediately understands this. Thus even though, externally, a devotee may not render full service, if he is internally sincere and serious the Lord welcomes his service nonetheless. Thus the Lord is known as bhava-grahi janardana because He takes the essence of one's devotional mentality." (Srimad Bhagavatam. 8.23.2)
Time to wake up:

"In a dream we form a society of friendship and love, and when we awaken we see that it has ceased to exist. Similarly, one's gross society, family and love are also a dream, and this dream will be over as soon as one dies. Therefore, whether one is dreaming in a subtle way or a gross way, these dreams are all false and temporary. One's real business is to understand that one is soul (aham brahmasmi) and that his activities should therefore be different. Then one can be happy." (Srimad Bhagavatam. 7:14:3-4)

The Myth of Empirical Objectivity
from the ORIGINS Lecture Series by HG Sataputa Das
"Bhagavad-gita (8.16) says, abrahma-bhuvanal lokah punar avartino 'rjuna: except for those who go to Visnuloka, everyone is subjected to the four principles of material life, namely birth, death, old age and disease. The Lord says, yad gatva na nivartante tad dhama paramam mama: 'The planet from which, once going, no one returns, is My supreme abode.' (Bg. 15.6) Dhruva Maharaja was reminded, 'You are going in our company to that planet from which no one returns to this material world.' Material scientists are attempting to go to the moon and other planets, but they cannot imagine going to the topmost planet, Brahmaloka, for it is beyond their imagination. By material calculation, traveling at the speed of light it would take forty thousand light-years to reach the topmost planet. By mechanical processes we are unable to reach the topmost planet of this universe, but the process called bhakti-yoga, as executed by Maharaja Dhruva, can give one the facility not only to reach other planets within this universe, but also to reach beyond this universe to the Visnuloka planets." (ACBSP. Srimad Bhagavatam. 4.12.26. purport)
"The principal sign of the age of Kali is that lower-caste sudras, i.e., men without brahminical culture and spiritual initiation, will be dressed like administrators or kings, and the principal business of such non-ksatriya rulers will be to kill the innocent animals, especially the cows and the bulls, who shall be unprotected by their masters, the bona fide vaisyas, the mercantile community." (Srimad Bhagavatam. 1.17.1)

"I eternally prostrate myself before the Infallible Lord, who comes in the guise of an ordinary cowherd child. His soft, tender limbs are covered in the dust upraised by the hooves of His herds of cows. He is accompanied by hundreds of cowherd boys as He returns every evening to each house in Braj, to tether the cows into their sheds."

See our Cow Protection pages:

Vamana, Brahma, Ananta Sesha and Sanaka Kumara will appear as brahmanas by the order of Visnu, for the preservation of eternal righteousness in kali yuga.

visnuswami vamanangsastatha madhvastu brahmanah
ramanujastu sesangsa nimbaditya sanakasya ca

Visnuswami, Madhvacarya, Ramanuja and Nimbaditya will appear respectively as a portion of Vamana, Brahma, Ananta Sesha and Sanaka Kumara.

ete kalau yuge bhavyah sampradaya pravartakah
samvatsare vikrama catvarah ksiti pavanah

These four saviours will be the establishers of the four authorised and empowered spiritual channels of disciplic succession in the period calculated from the reign of King Vikrama in 54 B.C. subsequently through the 432,000 year cycle of kali yuga.

sampradaya vihina ye mantraste nisphalah smritah
tasmacca gamanang hyasti sampradaya narairapi

These four authorised and empowered spiritual channels of disciplic succession are to be fully accepted by all beings; as any word, combination of words or formulation of sound frequencies, invoked or addressed, audible or inaudible, secret or revealed, ancient or contemporary outside their auspices prove to have absolutely no efficacy.

Garga Samhita, Canto 10, chapter 61, verses 23, 24, 25, 26.

The Spider and the Bug

There was once a spider who lived in a cornfield. He was a big spider and he had spun a beautiful web between the corn stalks. He got fat eating all the bugs that would get caught in his web. He liked his home and planned to stay there for the rest of his life.

One day the spider caught a little bug in his web, and just as the spider was about to eat him, the bug said, "If you let me go I will tell you something important that will save your life." The spider paused for a moment and listened because he was amused. "You better get out of this cornfield," the little bug said, "The harvest is coming!"

The spider smiled and said, "What is this harvest you are talking about? I think you are just telling me a story." But the little bug said, "Oh no, it is true. The owner of this field is coming to harvest it soon. All the stalks will be knocked down and the corn will be gathered up. You will be killed by the giant machines if you stay here."

The spider said, "I don't believe in harvests and giant machines that knock down corn stalks. How can you prove this?" The little bug continued, "Just look at the corn. See how it is planted in rows? It proves this field was created by an intelligent designer."

The spider laughed and mockingly said, "This field has evolved and has nothing to do with a creator. Corn always grows that way." The bug went on to explain, "Oh no. This field belongs to the owner who planted it, and the harvest is coming soon." The spider grinned and said to the little bug, "I don't believe you," and then the spider ate the little bug for lunch.

A few days later, the spider was laughing about the story the little bug had told him. He thought to himself, "A harvest! What a silly idea. I have lived here all of my life and nothing has ever disturbed me. I have been here since these stalks were just a foot off the ground, and I'll be here for the rest of my life, because nothing is ever going to change in this field. Life is good, and I have it made."

The next day was a beautiful sunny day in the cornfield. The sky above was clear and there was no wind at all. That afternoon as the spider was about to take a nap, he noticed some thick dusty clouds moving toward him.

He could hear the roar of a great engine and he said to himself, "I wonder what that could be?"

The Jars

The preacher placed two identical jars on the table next to the pulpit. He quoted 1 Samuel 16:7: "The
Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but, the Lord looks at the heart"

"These jars came from the same factory, were made of the same materials, and, can hold the same amount."

"But, they are different," he explained.

Then he upset one, and, it oozed out honey. He turned over the other, and, vinegar spilled out. "When a jar is upset, whatever is in it comes out".

"Until the jars were upset, they looked alike. The difference was within, and, could not be seen. When they were upset, their contents were revealed".

"Until we are upset we put on a good front. But, when we are upset, we reveal our innermost thoughts, and, attitudes, for, out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks" ( Luke 6:45).

"What if someone tipped you over today?"

"What would flow out?"

"Would you reveal the "honey" of grace, and, patience, or the "vinegar" of anger and sarcasm?"

"Above all, love each other deeply, because, love covers over a multitude of sins" (1Peter 4:8).

Have a terrific day knowing that the one who upsets you may be just looking for some honey.

The Passing Away of Ananya Bhak dasa - Melbourne

On Wednesday 5th September 2001 around Noon @ Bethlehem Hospice, Kooyong Rd.

Ananya Bhak prabhu was best know for his years of dedicated service to cooking for Food For Life - Crossways in Melbourne, and as a staunch pujari and cook for Sri Sri Radha Ballabha in Iskcon Melb.
Some may also know him from his few years in Perth, or from his visit back to New Zealand, his country of birth during the North Island Padayatra of 1992.

At the hospital with him were Keshava and Jnana Samudra prabhus. Keshava prabhu was chanting in his ear just as he departed. Hospital staff were VERY co-operative. His passing was glorious.

There was the traditional prasadam feast in his honour on Saturday 8th Sept. three days after his departure.

If you would like to read the full story it is available at the following address:

There will be a commemorative service in his honour at the Melbourne Temple
Saturday 15th September for more information

"He reason ill who tells that Vaisnavas die
When thou art living still in sound!
The Vaisnavas die to live, and living try
To spread the Holy Name around !"

"Let this temporary body be burnt to ashes, and let the air of life be merged with the totality of air. Now, O my Lord, please remember all my sacrifices, and because You are the ultimate beneficiary, please remember all that I have done for You."

We wish him well on his progress back to the spiritual abode - Goloka Vrindavana.
Ohu vaha ho
ohu vaha ho
ohu vaha ho (oh how wondrous, oh how wondrous, oh how wondrous)

Congratulations to residents of New Varshana Auckland, Indrakarma prabhu and Akarshini Gaurangi mataji on the appearance of your little "Ray of Vishnu" - Son  named Radheshyam. Born in Auckland on 23rd August 2001 with all samskaras.

Both mother and baby are well.

Ohu vaha ho
ohu vaha ho
ohu vaha ho (oh how wondrous, oh how wondrous, oh how wondrous)

to Adi Purush prabhu and Adya Shakti mataji (Brisbane Aus) for the birth of their "Ray of Vishnu" who took his birth after 11 years of inviting him, on 29th August 2001

Srila Prabhupad on the topic:
"Sucinäm Shrimatäm gehe. So this child is born of a devotee father and devotee mother. Now he’ll again begin from the point where he lost last life. Suppose Krishna consciousness he executed fifty percent. So he’ll begin from this life fifty-one percent. That fifty percent was in his stock. But ordinary karmis—cent percent lost. He has to begin another chapter of life according to his karma." (Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. 17th July 1971. Lexture in Detroit.)

"There are two kinds of children born of good fathers: one is educated in Krishna consciousness so that he can be delivered from the clutches of mäyä in that very life, and the other is a ray of the Supreme Personality of Godhead and teaches the world the ultimate goal of life." (Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. 8th August 1976. Srimad Bhagavatam class SB 3:22:19. Tehran, Iran)

Now, non-Hindus too can have darshan of Puri deity by Imran Khan in Bhubaneswar

There is good news for non-Hindus desiring to have a glimpse of the lord in Puri's famous Jagannath temple.
Gopinath Mohanty, director of the Orissa tourism department, said the government has decided to build an elevated swing tower with a platform on the northern side of the world famous temple to enable non-Hindus to pay their respects to the lord without entering the temple.
It will be the closest that non-Hindus will ever get to the lord. The temple is probably the only one in the country where the pandas (priests) are still opposed to the entry of non-Hindus inside its premises. In fact, the priests enjoy the Puri Shankaracharya's support on this matter. At the temple's main entrance, guarded by stone lions, a small marble plate proclaims - Only Hindus are allowed.
About ten years back, the pandas prevented Dr Kamalesh Choudhry, a Pune-based friend of well-known Oriya writer Prativa Ray, from entering the temple. The pandas suspected Dr Choudhry of being a Christian. It was only after much pleading by Ray that she was allowed to enter the temple.
Several such cases have been publicised in recent times. Members of ISKCON (International Society for Krishna Consciousness) are also not allowed to enter the temple.
From Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi to former prime minister Indira Gandhi, the pandas have spared no one. Mahatma Gandhi was prevented from entering the temple as he was accompanied
by Harijans while Acharya Vinobha Bhave faced the wrath of the pandas for being accompanied by Muslims.
Indira Gandhi's fault was that she was married to a Parsi.
It is said that Biswanath Das, a former prime minister of Orissa (before independence, the chief minister of the state was called prime minister), did not visit the temple protesting against the denial of admission to non-Hindus to the inner sanctum of the temple.
According to temple sources, the first converted Hindu who entered the inner sanctum of the temple, in 1950, was Shri Shri Dayamata, an American woman who succeeded Shri Shri Pramananda Yogananda as head of the Yogananda SanghaMath.

Mexican Rice
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon hing
1 1/2 cups vegetable broth
1 1/2 cups quick-cooking brown rice
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 large tomato, seeded and chopped
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium high heat. Add hing; cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in broth, rice, chili powder, jalapeno peppers, and cumin. Cover, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat, and simmer for 4 minutes.
Stir in bell pepper. Cover.

Aubergine Fold and Feta Rolls
Serves 4
Preparation Time 30 mins to 1 hr
Cooking Time Less than 10 mins

1 large aubergine, about 500g/1¼lb
120ml/4floz extra virgin olive oil
2 tsps Hing powder
finely grated zest of 1 lemon
1 small beef tomato (beef tomato is just the name of the variety of tomato)
275g/10oz Greek feta cheese
8 large fresh basil leaves
8 sundried tomatoes in olive oil, drained and finely sliced
salt and freshly ground black pepper
8 fine metal trussing skewers or cocktail sticks soaked in cold water for 30 minutes.

Trim off the stalk end of the aubergine and then cut lengthways into 8 x 5 mm / ¼ in thick slices discarding the ends.
Arrange the slices in a single layer on a large baking tray, sprinkle lightly with some fine salt and set aside for 30 minutes to 1 hour - this will make them easier to roll later on as well as draw out some of the water.
Rinse the aubergines in cold water and then pat them really dry with kitchen paper.
Mix the olive oil with the Hing, lemon zest and some seasoning. Brush over both sides of each aubergine slice then season with plenty of pepper. Place on the barbecue over medium-hot coals and barbecue for 2-3 minutes on each side until lightly charred.
Set aside and leave to cool a little. Cut the tomato into 4 thick slices, discarding the ends and then cut each slice in half again to make 8 slices.
Cut the feta cheese into 8 slices. Place the aubergine slices onto the work surface and place a piece of tomato in the middle of each slice. Arrange a slice of feta on top, then roughly tear the basil and scatter on top. Sprinkle over the sun dried tomatoes and season with plenty of freshly ground black pepper. Flip over both ends to enclose the filling and secure with a cocktail stick.
Brush the outside of the rolls with the rest of the Hing and lemon oil and barbecue over medium-hot coals for 1-2 minutes on each side or until they are heated through and slightly golden.

Serve at once.

One summer, a drought threatened the crop in a small town.
On a hot and dry Sunday, the village parson told his congregation,
"There isn't anything that will save us except to pray for rain.
Go home, pray, believe, and come back next Sunday ready to thank God for sending rain."
The people did as they were told and returned to church the following Sunday.
But as soon as the priest saw them, he was furious.
"We can't worship today. You people do not yet believe," he said.
"But," they protested, "we prayed, and we do believe."
"Believe?" he responded. "Then where are your umbrellas?"
Taladhwaj called up the Air New Zealand ticket counter and asked, "How long are your flights from Auckland to Invercargil?"

Her husband asked her what it was, and she told him there was water in the carburetor. He thought for a moment, then said, "You know, I don't mean this offensively, but you don't know the carburetor from the distributor."

"No, there's definitely water in the carburetor," she insisted.
"Okay Devi, that's fine, I'll just go take a look. Where is it?"
"In the lake," she replied!
Santa Singh spoke frantically into the phone, "My wife is pregnant and her contractions are only two minutes apart!"

The colonel had three Second Lieutenants eligible for promotion. The problem was, he only had one First Lieutenant Slot available. The colonel called the first butter-bar into his office and said, "This is a promotion test. If I was to tell you that I wanted a flag pole erected in front of Post HQ by 1700, what would you do?"
The first 2nd Looey thought about it for a second, and said, "Sir, I would get a shovel, head for HQ and start digging..."
"You're not ready to be promoted," the Colonel interrupted.
The colonel asked the same question of the next candidate.
"Sir," said the next butter-bar, "I would fill out a CE work order, making sure I made provisions for the appropriate environmental study and..."
"You are definitely not ready to be promoted," the Colonel said.
The Colonel asked the question of the final candidate. Without hesitation, the Lieutenant said, "Sir. I would call the First Sergeant, and say, 'Top, I want a flag pole in front of HQ by 1700!"
"You're ready to be promoted," the Colonel said.

"So, what was wrong?"
And Pandu replied, "It was an ID Ten T Error."
A puzzled expression ran riot over Kali's face. "An ID Ten T Error? What's that ... in case I need to fix it again??"

"You want me to pick up the pen as if I were pregnant, the way my wife would do it?" the husband asked.

"Exactly," replied the instructor.

To the delight of the other husbands, he turned to his wife and said, "Honey, pick up that pen for me."

The almighty guru (Indian tale) :

A disciple had such an absolute and unshakable faith in his guru that he was able to climb the highest mountain peaks and cross rivers by walking on the water simply by repeating his guru's name over and over again.
One day the guru saw his disciple walking across a river, and he started to think: "My name is in fact all-powerful. I acquired the strength of the Lord of the universe."
The next day, he rushed to walk across a deep river, simply shouting: "Me! me!"
And he drowned, because he did not know how to swim.

TEACHER: How old will you be on your next birthday?
TEACHER: That's impossible!
STUDENT: No, it isn't, Teacher. I'm eight today.

The Godfather, accompanied by his attorney, walks into a room to meet with his accountant. The Godfather asks the accountant, "Where's the three million bucks you embezzled from me?" The accountant doesn't answer. The Godfather asks again, "Where's the three million bucks you embezzled from me?"

The attorney interrupts, "Sir, the man is a deaf-mute and cannot understand you, but I can interpret for you."

The Godfather says, "Well, ask him where the @#!* money is."

The attorney, using sign language, asks the accountant where the three million dollars is. The accountant signs back, "I don't know what you're talking about." The attorney interprets to the Godfather, "He doesn't know what you're talking about."

The Godfather pulls out a pistol, puts it to the temple of the accountant, cocks the trigger and says, "Ask him again where the @#!* money is!"

The attorney signs to the accountant, "He wants to know where it is!" The accountant signs back, "Okay! Okay! The money's hidden in a suitcase behind the shed in my backyard!"

The Godfather says, "Well, what did he say?"
The attorney interprets to the Godfather, "He says that you don't have the guts to pull the trigger."

Aboard an Air India flight from India to America, Grandma Suniti Patel was taking her very first flight. They had only been aloft a few minutes when the old lady complained to the stewardess that her ears were popping.
The girl smiled and gave the older woman some chewing gum, assuring her that many people experienced the same discomfort.

A guy is walking along when suddenly he got his foot caught stuck in some railroad tracks. He tried to get it out but it was really stuck in there well. He heard a noise and turned around to see a train coming. He panicked and started to pray as folk do, "God, please get my foot out of these tracks and I'll stop drinking!" Nothing happened, it was still stuck, and the train was getting closer! He prayed again, "God, please get my foot out and I'll stop drinking AND gambling!" Still nothing.....and the train was just seconds away! He tried it one more time, "God please, if you get my foot out of the tracks, I'll quit drinking, gambling, smoking, become vegetarian and having sex with all the women I meet."
Suddenly his foot shot out of the tracks and he was able to dive out of the way, just as the train passed!…

… He got up, dusted himself off, looked toward the sky and said "Thanks anyway God, but I got it out myself."

A story...
And, lo, it came to pass that the trader by the name of Abraham . Com did take unto himself a young wife by the name of Dot. And Dot Com was a comely woman, broad of shoulder and long of leg. Indeed, she had been called Amazon Dot Com. And she said unto Abraham, her husband, "Why doth thou travel far from town to town with thy goods, when thou can trade without ever leaving thy tent?"
And Abraham did look at her as though she were several saddle bags short of a camel load, but simply said, "How, dear?" And Dot replied, "I will place drums in all the towns and drums in between to send messages saying what you have for sale and they will reply telling you which hath the best price. And the sale can be made on the drums and delivery by Uriah's Pony Stable (UPS)."
Abraham thought long and decided he would let Dot have her way with the drums. And Dot said, "There will be a lot of banging in the land."
And Abraham replied, "It is my most fervent wish that this be so." And the drums rang out and were an immediate success. Abraham sold all the goods he had, at the top price, without ever moving from his tent.
But his success did arouse envy. A man named Maccabia did secret himself inside Abraham's drum and was accused of insider trading.
And the young did take to Dot Com's trading as doth the greedy horsefly to camel dung. They were called Nomadic Ecclesiastical Rich Dominican Siderites, or NERDS for short.
And, lo, the land was so feverish with joy at the new riches and the deafening sound of drums, that no one noticed that the real riches were going to the drum maker, one Brother William of Gates, who bought up every drum company in the land. And indeed did insist on making drums that would only work if you bought Brother William's drumsticks.
And Dot did say, "Oh, Abraham, what we have started is being taken over by others." And as Abraham looked out over the Bay of Ezekiel, or as it came to be known, "eBay," he said, "We need a name of a service that reflects what we are." And Dot replied, "Young Ambitious Hebrew Owner Operators."
"Whoopee!" said Abraham.
"No, YAHOO!" said Dot Com.
Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.

The Seven Great Revellations of the Universe:

1 - Never under any circumstances take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

2 - You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests you think she's pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment.

3 - If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be "meetings."

4 - People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them.

5 - No matter what happens, somebody will find a way to take it too seriously.

6 - When trouble arises and things look bad, there is always one individual who perceives a solution and is willing to take command. Very often, that individual is crazy.

7 - There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."
