                  "New Millinium Travelling Festival"

HH Indradyumna Swami has asked me to inform all of you regarding
the details of the upcoming travelling festival program on the
South Island of New Zealand. We welcome as many devotees as would
like to come.

The travelling festival will take place from January 10th - 30th.
The theme will be 'Spiritual Solutions to Material Problems'.
We will be meeting various dignitaries and VIPs along the way to
offer guidance and advice for a new millenium.

To keep costs down and make everything simple and easy, we will
generally be staying in public campings. Devotees are expected to
bring their own tents and pay for their own fees at the camping sites.
In a couple of places (ie: Christchurch and Dunedin) we will organize
devotee's and friends' homes for free accomodation.

Devotees must also make their own travel arrangements. We expect many
devotees to travel by public transportion from place to place (bus).

In order to make bookings for campings, we need to know by December
10th (at the latest) exactly how many adults and children will
be coming ...and for how many days.  It is very important that you
contact me on, or before this date, if you plan to come. We cannot
guarantee that late reservations will be accepted.

Everyone who joins us will be asked to contribute $5 per day for
prasadam, children under 12 will be free of charge.

We will have incense, blissballs and stickers available for
distribution, if you need to raise funds as you go.

All devotees will be required to do menial tasks to help with
the general running of the festival;  cleaning duties,  kitchen
service,  bhoga shopping, etc.

Devotees will also be expected to strictly follow a devotional
morning program.

The planned itinerary is as follows.

            Finding Spiritual Solutions to Material Problems

Lieutenant Mozee: Do you have any feelings about crime here in the
United States as opposed to the crime in your own country of India?

Srila Prabhupäda: What is your definition of crime?

Lieutenant Mozee: Any trampling on the rights of one person by another

Srila Prabhupäda: Yes. Our definition is the same. In the Upanishads
it is said, ishäväsyam idam sarvam: “ Everything belongs to God.” So,
everyone has the right to utilize whatever is allotted to him by God,
but one may not encroach upon others’ property. if one does so, he
becomes a criminal. Actually the first crime is that you Americans are
thinking this land of America is yours. Although two hundred years ago
it was not yours, you have come from other parts of the world and
claimed it as your land. Actually it is God’s land, and therefore it
belongs to everyone, since everyone is a child of God. But the vast
majority of people have no conception of God. Practically speaking,
everyone is godless. Therefore they should be educated to love God.
In America, your government has a slogan: “in God we trust.” Is that

Lieutenant Mozee: Yes.

Srila Prabhupäda: But where is the education about God? To trust is
very good, but simple trust will not endure unless it is backed up
with scientific knowledge of God. One may know that he has a father,
but unless he knows who his father is, his knowledge is imperfect.
And that education in the science of God is lacking.

Lieutenant Mozee: Do you feel that it’s lacking only here in the
United States?

Srila Prabhupäda: No. Everywhere. The age we live in is called
Kali-yuga, the age of forgetting God. It is an age of
misunderstanding and quarrel, and the people’s hearts are filled
with dirty things. But God is so powerful that if we chant His
holy name we become purified, just as my disciples have become
purified of their bad habits. Our movement is based on this principle
of chanting the holy name of God. We give everyone the opportunity,
without any distinction. They can come to our temple, chant the Hare
Krsna mantra, take a little prasädam as refreshment, and gradually
become purified. So if the governmental authorities give us some
facilities, then we can hold mass sankirtana. Then, without a doubt,
the whole society will change.

Lieutenant Mozee: If I understand you correctly, sir, you are saying
that we should emphasize a return to religious principles.

Srila Prabhupäda: Certainly. Without religious principles what is
the difference between a dog and a man? Man can understand religion,
but a dog cannot. That is the difference. So if human society remains
on the level of dogs and cats, how can you expect a peaceful society?
If you bring a dozen dogs and put them together in a room, will it
be possible to keep them peaceful? Similarly, if human society is
filled with men whose mentality is on the level of dogs, how can you
expect peace?

Lieutenant Mozee: If some of my questions sound disrespectful, it
is only because I do not completely understand your religious beliefs.
I mean no disrespect whatsoever.

Srila Prabhupäda: No, it is not a question of my religious beliefs.
I am simply pointing out the distinction between human life and
animal life. Animals cannot possibly learn anything about God,
but human beings can. However, if human beings are not given the
facility to learn about God, then they remain on the level of cats
and dogs. You cannot have peace in a society of cats and dogs.
Therefore, it is the duty of the governmental authorities to see that
people are taught how to become God conscious. Otherwise, there will
be trouble, because without God consciousness there is no difference
between a dog and a man: the dog eats, we eat; the dog sleeps, we
sleep; a dog has sex, we have sex; a dog tries to defend itself,
and we also try to defend ourselves. These are the common factors.
The only difference is that a dog cannot be instructed about his
relationship with God, but a man can.(A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
Prabhupad. discussion with Lt. Mozee. Science of Self Realisation
Book Chapter 6.)
"Hold your horses" is a very interesting term. The senses are compared
to horses in the Upanishads.

Therefore we should "Hold our horses." How are they held? By good
intelligence through the medium of the mind. Whenever we see some
object of enjoyment, these horses rush at it, wanting to enjoy.

The horses are controlled by the intelligence gained from the association
of devotees who are well versed in, and fixed in the life-style
Srila Prabhupada's books.

~ Talk of the Town Recipes

16 cups (4 L) thinly sliced cucumbers
1 medium crispy cabbage,  thinly sliced
1/2 cup (125 ml) pickling salt
5 cup (250 ml) sugar
2 Tbs (30 ml) mustard seed
1 Tbs Hing
2 tsp (10 ml) turmeric
1 tsp (5 ml) celery seed
5 cups (1.25 L) cider vinegar

Mix the cucumbers and cabbage with the salt and 2 quarts (2 L) of
cracked ice and let them stand, covered with a weighted lid, for 3
hours.  Drain thoroughly and put the vegetables in a large kettle.
Add the sugar, spices and vinegar and bring almost to a boil, stirring
often with a wooden spoon, but do not boil.  Pack the pickles into
sterilized jars and seal.  Makes about 4 quarts (4 L.)


3 cups milk powder
3 cups white sugar
250 grms unsalted butter melted.

A pinch of allspice
A pinch of ground cloves
A pinch of cinnamon powdered
A pinch of cardamom powdered.

Mix all together and roll mixture out into a tray.

Alternately you can add walnuts, pecans, cashews, macadamias
chopped to this mix (or even currents) before you roll it out.
Or you can make into balls like simply wonderfuls and then
flatten them to make cookies.

Either way put into a medium oven for about 15-20 mins or
until the top is golden brown.

This is a great Ekadasi sweet.

There once was a young brahminical priest
Who ate up some bread made with yeast,
Then he got on a jet liner
And travelled to China,
Determined to rise in the East.
In some traditions they say prayers before eating their food. And
when you look at what they eat it's not surprising. In Krsna
consciousness however we also say a prayer but asking to control
the tongue so we don't over do it, and then in love relish what we
have as Krsna prasadam, the Lord's mercy.
We were all siting taking prasadam, when one devotee who had just
come back from India started telling of some of his encounters.
 You know the East is so mysterious, and did you know there
are still so many practicing mystics. Once when we went down to Kerala
we found this old temple, must have been at least ten thousand years
old by the smoothness of the stone. Anyway there was this really old
baba there. He seemed to be maintaining the temple, because there was
incense bellowing out from near the altar, and no-one else was around.
 It appeared that the old man couldn't walk because he was
supported by two crutches. He was very unsteady and his legs looked
all knarled. He stood there praying, and chanting sacred mantras in
what must have been Malalaylam. After an hour or so, he suddenly
threw away one of his crutches. Then he stood there for another half
an hour praying, after which he got really excited and threw away the
other one of the crutches.

"Then what, .......Then what,......", all the devotees asked in

"Well what happened then?" he continued. " ......was the poor old
baba fell flat on his face!"
Once there was a brahmin who was going to pass stool. He went to the
field wrapped his brahmin thread around his right ear and began to
pass. He then cleaned himself and was about to walk away. When he
turned and did the unthinkable, he looked at the stool. "Yuk", he
cried. To his surprise the stool spoke to him as follows. "Don't you
say Yuk, how dare you, until I came in contact with you I was Maha
