Srimad Bhagavad Gita AS IT IS
Chapter 18 TEXT 67

idam te natapaskaya
nabhaktaya kadacana
na casusrusave vacyam
na ca mam yo 'bhyasuyati

idam--this; te--by you; na--never; atapaskaya--to one who is not austere; na--never; abhaktaya--to one who is not a devotee; kadacana--at any time; na--never; ca--also; asusrusave--to one who is not engaged in devotional service; vacyam--to be spoken; na--never; ca--also; mam--toward Me; yah--anyone who; abhyasuyati--is envious.

This confidential knowledge may never be explained to those who are not austere, or devoted, or engaged in devotional service, nor to one who is envious of Me.

PURPORT by HDG Srila A.C. Bjaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada:
Persons who have not undergone the austerities of the religious process, who have never attempted devotional service in Krsna consciousness, who have not tended a pure devotee, and especially those who are conscious of Krsna only as a historical personality or who are envious of the greatness of Krsna should not be told this most confidential part of knowledge. It is, however, sometimes found that even demoniac persons who are envious of Krsna, worshiping Krsna in a different way, take to the profession of explaining Bhagavad-gita in a different way to make business, but anyone who desires actually to understand Krsna must avoid such commentaries on Bhagavad-gita. Actually the purpose of Bhagavad-gita is not understandable to those who are sensuous. Even if one is not sensuous but is strictly following the disciplines enjoined in the Vedic scripture, if he is not a devotee he also cannot understand Krsna. And even when one poses himself as a devotee of Krsna but is not engaged in Krsna conscious activities, he also cannot understand Krsna. There are many persons who envy Krsna because He has explained in Bhagavad-gita that He is the Supreme and that nothing is above Him or equal to Him. There are many persons who are envious of Krsna. Such persons should not be told of Bhagavad-gita, for they cannot understand. There is no possibility of faithless persons' understanding Bhagavad-gita and Krsna. Without understanding Krsna from the authority of a pure devotee, one should not try to comment upon Bhagavad-gita

Biography of Chankhya Pandit on-line:

Chanakhya Niti Shastra on-line:
Of one heart and mind I make you, devoid of hate. Love one another as a cow loves the calf she has borne. Let the son be courteous to his father, of one mind with his mother. Let the wife speak words that are gentle and sweet to her husband.

Atharva Veda Samhita 3.30.1
In village or forest, in all the places where man meets man, in market or forum, may we always say that which is pleasing to you!

Atharva Veda 12.1.56
Taking as a bow the great weapon of the Upanishad, one should put upon it an arrow sharpened by meditation. Stretching it with a thought directed to the essence of That, penetrate that Imperishable as the mark, my friend. Seeking solutions in That Absolute.

Atharva Veda, Mundaka Upanishads 2.2.3.
"We want to be happy in the material world, but this will never be possible; we shall simply increase the blazing fire of desires. Our desires cannot be satisfied by illusory thoughts and plans; rather, we have to follow the instructions of Lord Krsna: sarva-dharman parityajya mam ekam saranam vraja. Then we shall be happy. Otherwise, in the name of happiness, we shall continue to suffer miserable conditions." (Srimad Bhagavatam. 7.9.25)
"When the devotees of Lord Krishna dance, their steps crush the inauspiciousness of the earth, their glances destroy the inauspiciousness of the ten directions, and their raised arms push away the inauspiciousness of the demigod planets."
Please chant:

hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare
hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare

.......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.
adau sraddha tatah sadhu sanga'tha bhajana-kriya,
tato 'nartha nivritti syat tato nistha rucis tatah,
athasaktis tato bhavas tatah premabhyudancati
sadhakam ayam pemnah pradurbhave bhavet kramah

"In the beginning there must be faith. Then one becomes interested in associating with pure devotees. Thereafter one is initiated by the spiritual master and executes the regulative principles under his orders. Thus one is freed from all unwanted habits and becomes firmly fixed in devotional service. Thereafter, one develops taste and attachment. This is the way of sadhana-bhakti, the execution of devotional service according to the regulative principles. Gradually emotions intensify, and finally there is an awakening of love. This is the gradual development of love of Godhead for the devotee interested in Krsna consciousness." (Sri Chaitanya Charitamrita. Madhya-lila 23:16)

Viewing Recent World Events - Please Separate FACTS from speculations and hearsay, emotion from solution.

Take the facts and select - important truths - unimportant, or possible mistakes.

See our pramanas (Truth) pages to help with how to discriminate facts from speculations.

Condolences to those who have suffered, or are suffering - we hope to help minimise further suffering.

Misconceptions of identity create many clashes in this world, by knowledge of who we are, our true nature as spiritual beings, our real spiritual abode, and that we are in that way "spiritual brothers and sisters" of the One common Father can overcome inappropriate acts toward one another.

Not ALL those having a brown body is a terrorist, like not ALL those with whitish bodies are neo-Nazis.

It is common knowledge that this is the Age of Kali - the age of quarrel and hypocrisy, we needn't add to it further. The Peace Formula for Spiritual Solutions to such Material Problems is given here.

Message from the Dalai Lama urging us to be again God conscious !!!
"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."

"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."

"The story of the Concrete"

Once, in a class of management students there was a very involving discussion on the subject of "Social bonding and the strength of a society".

The opinion was clearly divided. A group of students was all for a society of achievers, while the other was favouring a society with care and space for all.

The professor asked the students to elaborate on their stands. One group said that it is the concept of survival of the fittest. Only achievers can compete and excel in all fields , giving rise to a strong society. Non-achievers in fact weaken the society , hence have no place in a strong society.

The other group suggested that a society could not be strong & healthy unless all its constituents are provided with equal opportunities and resources are shared amongst them in equitable manner. As per this group disproportionate resources and status realities weaken the society.

After a while, when the class could not arrive at any consensus, the professor interrupted and said " My dear young friends , let me tell you a story which may help you understand as to what factors are most important for a strong and integrated society."

"Friends, this is the story of Concrete. You all know what is Concrete !"

"Concrete is a mixture of cement and sand. It is used in construction of all civil structures. Some of the tallest and strongest of all time great buildings, monuments, sky scrappers, roads, Dams and bridges are in place only on the strength of the "Concrete".

"But what is the story of concrete ?" asked a boy who was getting anxious to know the story.
"Friends, Concrete is by far the strongest man made material that is the force behind the infrastructure required for growth & development of the mankind."

"Let's have a look ! What is this Concrete stuff made up of and how is it prepared."

"Well, One would immediately notice a grey mass of small "Pebbles" of all shapes and sizes, which are held together."

"Just take a close look and they appear to be packed to the limit, with no scope for further compression, isn't it !"

" Yes, they are held close to each other, but they leave sufficient space around them to accommodate the "Gravel".

"Watch the "Gravel" which are also closely held together as if nothing could pass through them. But when coming together to form a tightly held mass in Concrete, these "Gravel" also leave enough space between them to easily accommodate the "Sand Grains".

"Friends, "Sand Grains" come together to fill up the space left by other constituents, but are courteous enough to leave space around them to accommodate the "Cement Particles".

Well, "Cement Particles" too make a homogenous mass that actually binds all other constituents. They really can not afford to be loose. However, these "Cement Particles" also in a display of their magnanimity, leave enough room between them to allow "Water Molecules" have a free flow within the structure.

"Water Molecules" made of ions, quickly cover whatever space is left by others, but still are obliged to leave enough space for the "Air particles" to move in"

"Friends, this is the story of "Concrete" where although there is nothing equal, common or same amongst the constituents, they are gracious enough to provide the required space to one another and accommodate each other."

"This probably is the secret behind the strength of the "Concrete". The constituents seem to derive strength from each other, just by providing space to each other."

There was a pin drop silence in the classroom as the professor concluded. Every one was listening to the story with rapt attention. Suddenly the whole classroom was filled with sound of applause. Every one in the room was on his feet with expression of appreciation on their face as if giving a standing ovation to the "Concrete" structure around them.

The discussion was over. The concept was well understood. Consensus had blossomed like a newly born flower. They had discovered a lot of space for each other and certainly, there was no room for a dispute on the subject.

An article by : Nitin Kulkarni

Now think of Krishna consciousness - bhakti in relation to that binding cement. With it, all material things can be intergrated and utilised to bond the material world we live in with spiritual service to the Lord. Without it, we still have all manner of material elements - bahyopadhi, and there's still the spiritual realm - swarupopadhi, but the bond is lacking.

As Srila Prabhupad so nicely puts it;

anarthopashamam säkshäd
bhakti-yogam adhokshaje
lokasyäjänato vidvämsh
chakre sätvata-samhitäm

“The material miseries of the living entity, which are superfluous to him, can be directly mitigated by the linking process of devotional service. But the mass of people do not know this, and therefore the learned Vyäsadeva compiled this Vedic literature, which is in relation to the Supreme Truth.” (Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Srimad Bhagavatam 4:29:36-37 purport.)

"We have various senses—the powers of seeing, tasting, smelling, touching, etc.—and all the propensities of our senses can be satisfied when the senses are engaged in the service of the Lord. Hrishikena hrishikesha-sevanam bhaktir ucyate: 'Bhakti means engaging all the senses in the service of the master of the senses, Hrishikesha.' (Närada-pancharätra) These material senses, however, cannot be engaged in the service of the Lord; therefore one has to become free from all designations. Sarvopädhi-vinirmuktam tatparatvena nirmalam [Cc. Madhya 19.170]. " (Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Srimad Bhagavatam 4:24:44 purport.)

As stated in the Närada-pancharätra, sarvopädhi-vinirmuktam tatparatvena nirmalam: [Cc. Madhya 19.170] when the mind and senses are purified, one’s total existence is purified, and one’s designations are also purified. One no longer considers himself a human being, a demigod, cat, dog, Hindu, Muslim and so forth. When the senses and mind are purified and one is fully engaged in Krishna’s service, one can be liberated and return home, back to Godhead. (Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Srimad Bhagavatam 5:11:7 purport.)

“One should be free from all material designations and cleansed of all material contamination. He should be restored to his pure identity, in which he engages his senses in the service of the proprietor of the senses. That is called devotional service.” [Chaitanya charitamrita. Madhya 19.170]

"The Krishna consciousness movement is a movement of bhakti-yoga. Vairägya-vidyä-nija-bhakti-yoga [Chaitanya charitamrita. Madhya 6.254]. By following the principles of this movement, one becomes disassociated from material mental concoctions and is established on the original platform of the eternal relationship between the living entity and the Supreme Personality of Godhead as servant and master." (Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Srimad Bhagavatam 10:1:43 purport.)

...and that's concrete

See similar analogies etc at our Parables page:
"According to the opinion of the acaryas, the word krama-yogopalabdhena indicates that by first performing karma-yoga and then jnana-yoga and finally coming to the platform of bhakti-yoga, one can be liberated. Bhakti-yoga, however, is so powerful that it does not depend on karma-yoga or jnana-yoga. Bhakti-yoga itself is so powerful that even an impious man with no assets in karma-yoga or an illiterate with no assets in jnana-yoga can undoubtedly be elevated to the spiritual world if he simply adheres to bhakti-yoga. Mam evaisyasy asamsayah. Krsna says in Bhagavad-gita (8.7) that by the process of bhakti-yoga one undoubtedly goes back to Godhead, back home to the spiritual world." (ACBSP. Srimad Bhagavatam. 6.1.1. purport)
"An eye for eye only ends up making the whole world blind."

" As far as Luna's surface is concerned, 30 years after Apollo, when we investigate alternate analyses on those supposed landings, what do we find? We find obvious incongruencies, such as pictures of the LEM rocket engine sitting a meter above the Lunar soil, with no disturance underneath from its blast. We see Apollo photos of diverging shadows on the surface of the Moon, photos showing glare, including atmospheric glare on the horizon, and so much more."

New York Museum to Open Hindu Religion Exhibit


NEW YORK, USA, Sept. 5, 2001: New York's American Museum of Natural History
will open a new exhibit this week on the rituals, festivals and objects of
the Hindu religion, museum officials said. The exhibit, which runs from
Saturday through February 24, 2002, is called "Meeting God: Elements of
Hindu Devotion" and includes a photo exhibit (of Stephen Huyler), video
portraits and a wide range of South Asian devotional objects from the
museum's collection. "This exhibit is part of a long and rich tradition at
the museum of presenting exhibitions that celebrate the world's cultures,"
said Craig Morris, dean of science at the museum. The Hindu community of the
New York area also pitched in to the exhibit with the donation of religious
objects as well as allowing video crews to film various rituals of the
religion as it is practiced in the United States.

"The real mission of life for the conditioned soul is to reestablish the forgotten relationship with the Supreme Personality of Godhead and engage in devotional service so that he may revive Krsna consciousness after giving up the body. One doesn't have to give up his occupation as a brahmana, ksatriya, vaisya, sudra or whatever. In any position, while discharging his prescribed duty, one can develop Krsna consciousness simply by associating with devotees who are representatives of Krsna and who can teach this science. Regretfully, the big politicians and leaders in the material world simply create enmity and are not interested in spiritual advancement. Material advancement may be very pleasing to an ordinary man, but ultimately he is defeated because he identifies himself with the material body and considers everything related to it to be his property. This is ignorance. Actually nothing belongs to him, not even the body. By one's karma, one gets a particular body, and if he does not utilize his body to please the Supreme Personality of Godhead, all his activities are frustrated. The real purpose of life is stated in Srimad-Bhagavatam (1:2:13):

atah pumbhir dvija-srestha
svanusthitasya dharmasya
samsiddhir hari-tosanam

"It really doesn't matter what activity a man engages in. If he can simply satisfy the Supreme Lord, his life is successful." (Srimad Bhagavatam. 5:14:40.)

Ohu vaha ho

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

It gives me great pleasure to announce that Sriman Agni dasa prabhu and his good wife Balaradhya mataji have just received their "Ray of Vishnu". A son was born to them on Sunday 16th September in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago (yes our newsletter is far reaching)

Both mother and child are healthy and well, and father is ecstatic.

Lord Sri Krishna says in Bhagavad Gita 7:11.

balaM balavataaM chaahaM
dharmaaviruddho bhUteshu
kaamo ’smi bharatarshabha

balam—strength; bala-vataam—of the strong; ca—and; aham—I am; kaama—passion; raaga—and attachment; vivarjitam—devoid of; dharma-aviruddhaù—not against religious principles; bhUteshu—in all beings; kaamaH—sex life; asmi—I am; bharata-rishabha—O lord of the Bhaaratas.

"I am the strength of the strong, devoid of passion and desire. I am sex life which is not contrary to religious principles, O lord of the Bhaaratas [Arjuna]."

"Kandarpa is the sex desire for presenting good sons; therefore Kandarpa is the representative of Krishna. Sometimes sex is engaged in only for sense gratification; such sex does not represent Krishna. But sex for the generation of good children is called Kandarpa and represents Krishna." (Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Bhagavad Gita 10:28 purport.)

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)

"Insect Noise In Stored Foodstuffs" appears to be an industrial document produced by the 5th International Working Conference On Stored-Product Protection. This cd presents the sound investigation of the French team of Bunsel and Andrieu who used sensitive microphones with narrow frequency responses made to detect and identify the sounds of insect larvae which may be inhabiting otherwise quiet containers of grains and cereals. A handful of examples of the sounds including the grain weevil, the Indian meal moth, and the Lesser mealworm are accompanied by a running narrative both explaining the techniques used and the identification of the insects. And in case you missed the first 30 minutes of the document, the kind people at the 5th International Working Conference On Stored-Product Protection repeat the program in French. Hey, if that Smithsonian / Folkways "Sounds of North American Frogs" rocked your world, wait til this little gem comes your way!

A matter of Faith:

A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales.The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even though they are very large mammals, their throats are very small. The little girl stated Jonah was swallowed by a whale.

The teacher reiterated a whale could not swallow a human; it was impossible.

The little girl said, "When I get to heaven, I will ask Jonah."

The teacher asked, "What if Jonah went to hell?"

The little girl replied, "Then you ask him."

One Sunday in an Auckland church, a young child was "acting up" during the morning worship hour. The parents did their best to maintain some sense of order in the pew, but, were losing the battle.
Finally, the father picked the little fellow up and walked sternly up the aisle on his way out. Just before reaching the safety of the foyer, the little one called loudly to the congregation, "Pray for me! Pray for me!"
At the church the preacher was wired for sound with a lapel mike, and as he preached, he moved briskly about the platform, jerking the mike cord as he went. Then he moved to one side, getting wound up in the cord and nearly tripping before jerking it free again. Seeing he was in a state, and after several circles and jerks, a little girl in the third pew from the front leaned toward her mother and whispered, "If he gets loose, will he hurt us?"
A devotee was at the beach with his children when the four-year old son ran up to him, grabbed his hand, and led him to the shore, where a seagull lay dead in the sand. The little devotee sand "Pitaji why is that dead seagul there in the sand?"

"He's left his body and gone to Krishna!"

"What does Krishna want with a dead seagull???"

Just then a friend of his son with his father came over who was a Christian and he asked his father:
"Daddy, what happened to the seagull?"

The father replied, "He died and went to Heaven,"

The boy thought a moment and then said, "......Did God throw him back down?"
A table waiter at Gopal's brings the customer some big curd steaks he'd ordered with his
thumb over the plate pressing the curd steak to the plate.
"Awwwe yuk, are you crazy?" yelled the customer, "....don't bring my meal with your hand on my curd steak."

"What ?" answers the waiter, "You want it all to fall on the floor again?"

While marking her pupil's social studies test papers, the teacher was in a quandary about the answer given by one of the third-graders.

This comes from a Catholic elementary school. Kids were asked questions about the Old and New Testaments. They have not been retouched or corrected (i.e., incorrect spelling has been left in.) Enjoy!

In the first book of the bible, Guinessis, God got tired of creating the world, so he took the Sabbath off.

Adam and Eve were created from an apple tree. Noah's wife was called Joan of Ark. Noah built an ark, which the animals come on to in pears.

Lot's wife was a pillar of salt by day, but a ball of fire by night.

The Jews were a proud people and throughout history they had trouble with the unsympathetic Genitals.

Samson was a strongman who let himself be led astray by a Jezebel like Delilah.

Moses led the hebrews to the Red Sea, where they made unleavened bread which is bread without any ingredients.

The Egyptians were all drowned in the dessert. Afterwards, Moses went up on Mount Cyanide to get the ten ammendments.

The seventh commandment is thou shalt not admit adultery.

Moses died before he ever reached Canada. Then Joshua led the hebrews in the battle of Geritol.

The greatest miracle in the Bible is when Joshua told his son to stand still and he obeyed him.

David was a hebrew king skilled at playing the liar. he fought with the Finklesteins, a race of people who lived in Biblical times. Solomon, one of David's sons, had 300 wives and 700 porcupines.

When Mary heard that she was the mother of Jesus, she sang the Magna Carta.

When the three wise guys from the east side arrived, they found Jesus in the manager.

Jesus was born because Mary had an immaculate contraption.

Jesus enunciated the Golden Rule, which says to do one to others before they do one to you. He also explained, "a man doth not live by sweat alone."

It was a miracle when Jesus rose from the dead and managed to get the tombstone off the entrance.

The people who followed the lord were called the 12 decibels. The epistles were the wives of the apostles.

One of the oppossums was St. Matthew who was also a taximan.

St. Paul cavorted to Christianity. He preached holy acrimony, which is another name for marriage.

Christians have only one spouse. This is called monotony.

When Brahma passed out brains,
I thought he said grains, and as it was Ekadasi I said no thanks I'm fasting !!!

But then a devotee reiterated that it was brains,
BUT, I thought he said trains, and it seemed I missed mine.

When Brahma passed out looks,
I thought He said books, and as I alread had a full set and Vedabase, I said I didn't want any.

When Brahma passed out ears,
I thought He said deers, and I asked for two cute ones.

When Brahma passed out legs,
I thought He said Megs, and I asked for the biggest he could give me.

When Brahma passed out noses,
I thought He said roses, and I asked for a big red one - to place at the Lord's feet.

When Brahma passed out heads,
I thought He said beds, and I asked for a big soft one.

When Brahma passed out hips,
I thought He said lips, and I asked for two large round ones.

When Brahma handed out feet,
I though he said a seat, so I asked for a couple of nice flat ones. that's my excuse, what's yours????

"Wh-where are you from?" asked the father nervously.

"From Mars" replied the alien.

"D-d-do all of you look like this?" asked the man.

"No", replied the alien, "Only the orthodox"

Jasminder Singh was dying. His wife, Balgopal Kaur, was maintaining a candlelight vigil by his side. She held his fragile hand, tears running down her face. Her praying roused him from his slumber.
He looked up and his pale lips began to move slightly.

"My darling Balgopal," he whispered.

"Hush, my love," she said. "Rest. Shhh, ...don't talk."

He was insistent. "Balgopal," he said in his tired voice. "I . I have something I must confess to you."
"There's nothing to confess," replied the weeping Balgopal.
"Everything's all right, go to sleep."

"No, no. I must die in peace, Balgopal my dear wife. I . . . I slept with your Sister, your best friend, her best friend, and even your Mother! I'm sorry, I've been the most sinful of men !!!"
"I know" Balgopal whispered softly. "That's why I ran you down with the tractor."
Little Sunil watched, fascinated, as his mother smoothed cold cream on her face.

keepAhead Trivia Challenge
A lady had recently become a devotee.

One of her coworkers asked her what it was like to be a devotee. She was caught off guard and didn't know how to answer; but when she looked up, she saw a jack-o'-lantern on the desk and answered:

"It's like being a pumpkin."

The co-worker asked her to explain that one.

"Well, God picks you from the patch and brings you in and washes off all the dirt on the outside that you got from being around all the other pumpkins. Then he cuts off the top and takes all the yucky stuff out from inside. He removes all those seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc. Then he carves you a new smiling face and puts his light inside of you to shine for all to see.

It is our choice to either stay outside and rot on the vine or come inside and be something new and bright."

I'll never look at a pumpkin the same way again !!
