                  "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.

(|)<>(   Words of Wisdom - Shastra & Shastrakaras speak:  )<>(|)<>(
The Scientists are saying that this week they have found something
that by in the future they will be able to create life. Let's see
what the acaryas say!!!

"This Krishna consciousness movement is to know everything perfectly
from the supreme authority, Krishna. This is the process. Tad
vijnänärtham sa gurum eva abhigacchet. In order to understand subject
matter which is beyond our perception, you have to approach such
authority who can inform you. Exactly in the same way: to understand
who is my father is beyond my perception, beyond my speculation, but
if I accept the authoritative statement of my mother, this is perfect
knowledge. So there are three kinds of processes to understand or to
advance in knowledge. One is direct perception, pratyaksha. And the
other is authority, and the other is Shruti. Shruti means by hearing
from the Supreme. So our process is Shruti. Shruti means we hear from
the highest authority. That is our process, and that is very easy.
Highest authority, if He is not in default... Ordinary persons, they
are in default. They have got imperfection. The first imperfection is:
the ordinary man, they commit mistake. Any great man of the world, you
have seen, they commit mistake. And they are illusioned. They accept
something as reality which is not reality. Just like we accept this
body as reality. This is called illusion. But it is not reality.
“I am soul.” That is reality. So this is called illusion. And then,
with this illusory knowledge, imperfect knowledge, we become teacher.
That is another cheating. If you have not... They say, all these
scientists and philosophers, “Perhaps,” “It may be.” So where is
your knowledge? “It may be” and “perhaps.” Why you are taking the
post of a teacher? “In future we shall understand.” And what is this
future? Would you accept a post-dated check? “In future I shall
discover, and therefore I am scientist.” What is this scientist?
And, above all, our imperfectness of senses. Just like we are
seeing one another because there is light. If there is no light,
then what is the power of my seeing? But these rascals they do
not understand that they are always defective, and still, they
are writing books of knowledge. What is your knowledge? We must
take knowledge from the perfect person.
Therefore we are taking knowledge from Krishna, the Supreme
Person, the perfect person. And He is advising that if you want
to stop your pains and pleasure, then you must make some arrangement
not to accept this material body. That He is advising, Krishna, how
to avoid this material body. That has been explained. This is
Second Chapter. In the Fourth Chapter Krishna has said that janma
karma me divyam yo jänäti tattvatah, tyaktvä dehaà punar janma
naiti mäm eti. You simply try to understand the activities of
Krishna. These activities of Krishna is there in the history, in
the Mahäbhärata. Mahäbhärata means greater India or greater Bhärata,
Mahäbhärata, the history. In that history this Bhagavad-gitä is also
there. So He is speaking about Himself. You try to understand Krishna.
This is our Krishna consciousness movement. Simply try to understand
Krishna, His activities. He is not impersonal. Janma karma me divyam.
Karma means activities. He has activities. Why He is taking part
in this world, activities? Why He comes?

yadä yadä hi dharmasya
glänir bhavati bhärata
abhyutthänam adharmasya
tadätmänam såjämy aham

He has got some purpose; He has got some mission. So try to
understand Krishna and His mission and His activities. They are
described in a historical form. So where is the difficulty? We read
so many things, history or the activities of some leader, some
politician. The same thing, same energy, you apply for
understanding Krishna. Where is the difficulty? (Srila A.C.
Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. 21st June 1974. Bhagavad Gita
class 2:14. Germany.)
Prabhupäda: Yes. So... Just like if you have got your child on your
lap, if some friends come and takes your child and pats him and kisses
him, then you become pleased, immediately. “Oh, this gentleman loves
my child so much.” Similarly, if a Vaishnava, a devotee, is respected,
then Krishna is more pleased. Therefore it is called, yasya prasädäd
bhagavat-prasädah. The respectful to guru makes easier to receive
mercy from God. Yasya prasädäd bhagavat-prasädah. What is the meaning?

Satsvarüpa: “By the mercy of the spiritual master, one gets the
blessings of Krishna.”

Prabhupäda: Yes. Because Krishna is immediately pleased. “Oh, he’s
obedient and respectful to My devotee.” It is in the same way, “Oh,
he loves my child so much. He loves my dog.” Dog is not qualified.
But because the gentleman’s dog is loved, the gentleman is pleased.
This is counteractive. Similarly, a pure devotee, representative of
God, if he is offered respect, that respect goes to God.

Satsvarüpa: Prabhupäda, you said that we should respect everyone as
a devotee, but then also you teach that...

Prabhupäda: No, no. By qualification, a Vaishnava respects everyone.

Satsvarüpa: But then there’s also a teaching not to respect a
nondevotee even if he’s a big man. We may formally offer him respect,
but if...

Prabhupäda: That’s all right. Yes. Formality, you should be respectful.
Suppose your enemy—that is etiquette—comes in your room. But when he
has come to your room, you should offer him respect: “Come on, come
on. Sit down.” That is etiquette. You know that “He’s my enemy.”
That... The etiquette according to Vedic civilization: grihe
shatrum api präptam vishvastam akuto-bhayam. Even your enemy comes
at your home, you should treat with him in such a nice way that he’ll
forget that you are his enemy. Grihe shatrum... That was... Just like
Jaräsandha and Bhima. They, they wanted that “We want to fight
with you...” (Break) Unless one of the kings died... (Break) ...a
strong flavor, and it is continually, continues. So long it is alive,
the flavor is there. So where is that art, where is that science?
When you have... Where is that scientist amongst the human society?
They are very much proud of their scientific advancement. Everything
see, the flowers and leaves, so artistically, beautifully manufactured
that simply by seeing them you’ll feel pleased. How the man can
manufacture it? And still, they are denying the existence of God and
taking all the credit. How foolish they are. Müdha. (laughter) Yes.
Yes, they have been described as müdha. Now, we are appreciating
immediately Krishna’s craftsmanship, artistic sense, and we are
glorifying. So that should be done by everyone. But the müdhas, they
will not do that. They’ll explain away. They’ll never admit God’s hand,
intelligence, brain is there. They’ll never admit. Neither they will
explain how it is. They know it, how it is done. It has been done,
or it is being done by somebody. That they do not know, who is that
somebody. And when we say it is Krishna, Krishna says, “It is I am,”
they’ll not agree. This is their position. They do not know who is
that somebody, and when we say, “Here is that somebody,” they’ll
not believe it. This is müdha. Therefore it is said... The müdha
cannot explain all... And at the same time, will not accept the
real thing. That is müdha. Müdha means rascal. And they will set
aside the thing, “Yes, scientifically we are searching. In future,
we shall be able.” And when that future will come? Past, present
and future. The future will become past also. Just like tomorrow,
29th June, this is future. Now, day after tomorrow, it will be
past. (laughter) So if you are talking of future, but where is
the history... In the history the future is past. This is common
sense. So therefore they have discovered this nonsense ad infinitum
that future will never come. And still, they will set aside the
business to some future and take the credit. Yes. “In future we
shall be able to do it.” And that future will never come. And
still, they will take the credit. (laughter) Just see. Therefore
müdha. This is the explanation of müdha. It is just like somebody
offered you a post-dated check, and then he wants to clear his debt.
Suppose I am debtor by hundreds of dollars to you. I give you a
post-dated check, and still I say, “Now I am clear of your debt.”
And that post-dated check will never be paid. This is their
theory. Na mäm prapadyante müdhäh duskritino narädhamäh.
(A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. 28th June 1974. Room
Conversation, Melbourne, Australia)

20g/ ¾ oz. Yellow Chilli Powder.
 Serves : 4

      Preparation Time:1 hour
      Cooking Time: 2-3 minutes / set

 The Potatoes: Put all the ingredients in a bowl except ghee
and mix well. Divide into 12 equal portions and make balls.

 The Filling: Heat ghee in a kadhai/wok, add cumin and stir over
medium heat until it begins to pop, add asafoetida and stir until
the moisture evaporates. Then add ginger and green chillies, stir
for a few seconds, add peas and bhunno/stir-fry until the mixture
becomes dry. Remove, add the remaining ingredients, adjust the
seasoning, cool, mash and divide into 12 equal portions.

 The Tikki: Flatten each potato ball between the palms to make
round patties. Place a portion of the filling in the middle,
make balls again and then flatten to make ¾" thick round patties.

 The Masala: Put all ingredients, except mango and yellow chilli
powder in a blender and, in short pulses, make fine powder. Transfer
to clean, dry bowl, add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
Sieve and store in sterilized, dry and airtight container.
Yield: Approx. 375g/13 oz.


 Heat ghee on a thick tawa/griddle or in a frying pan, add
patties in convenient batches and shallow fry over medium heat
until a thick crust is formed on both sides. Remove to absorbent
paper to drain the excess fat. Repeat the process with the
remaining patties.

 To Serve

 Place a paper doiley on a platter, arrange the tikki on top,
sprinkle a generous quantity of the masala on top and serve
with Amchoor Saunth and Coriander-Mint Chutney.

A Beginners Guide to Vegetarianism:

There is now a web-page survey up to study those becoming
vegetarian. Those who are thinking of starting or have recently
started a vegetarian diet are invited to go to:

Please re-direct this message on to any people you know

The scientists challenged God to a contest, who could create life.

God agreed to the challenge and said "okay let it begin".
The scientists went to reach for their chemicals, DNA, RNA, amino
acids, etc., but God told them firmly, "Go and create your own,
these are mine, I already created these!"
Life Comes From Life:

I ALMOST STARVED working as a stand-up science comic. Science just
isn't that funny. It's tough to put a funny spin on angular momentum.
You can make the obvious joke about the Ideal Gas Law; but what can
you say after you have talked about the Ideal Bean? I was just about
to quit. Then I discovered the Theory of Evolution. Now the jokes
just write themselves. The tough part is keeping a straight face.
How can you describe how a cow evolved into a whale without laughing
yourself silly? To learn about the wacky world of evolution, write to
Science Against Evolution, P.O. BOX 923, Ridgecrest,
CA 93556 and ask for a sample copy of our newsletter.
SEX IS HARD for the theory of evolution to explain. Why would simple
organisms, which can reproduce all by themselves, evolve into creatures
that need a mate? What is the advantage that sexual reproduction gives
that results in a victory in the struggle for survival? How could male
and female varieties evolve simultaneously? Why would the opposite
sexes be drawn to each other? How would they know what to do once
they found each other? It doesn't make much sense. It makes more sense
to write for a free copy of our newsletter. Science Against Evolution,

MISSING LINKS WANTED by evolutionists. You can obtain fame and fortune
by selling missing links (genuine or not) to evolutionists. Take a
human skull,an ape's jaw, stain them to make them look old, and call
them Cro-Magnon Man! With nothing more than a single pig's tooth and
lots of imagination, you create Nebraska Man. Take some ape bones
and human bones, claim they were found together, and you will have
skeletal remains of Java Man and Peking Man, just like you find in the
museums! Yes, you can make big money selling missing links to
evolutionists, but you must act NOW! The theory of evolution
is crumbling fast, so you must sell your phony artifacts while there is
still time. For more information write to Science Against
Evolution, P.O. BOX 923, Ridgecrest, CA 93556.
EVERYONE KNOWS LIFE HAPPENS. Pinocchio and Frosty are documented cases.
Although all experiments have failed to produce 12 of the 20 necessary
amino acids from the postulated primordial soup, everyone who has been
educated in an American public school knows that success in 8 cases proves
that all 20 can form naturally by chance. Given a tide pool with all 20
amino acids, experiments have produced just 2 of the 4 necessary proteins
necessary for life. That's enough to claim success. Anyone with half a
brain can see how all these chemicals can form a nucleus, cytoplasm,
and cell membrane by chance. All that remains is to inject life into
the cell. This is left as an exercise for the reader.
(Hint: You need a dark and stormy night, a lightening rod, well-grounded
slab, a deformed assistant, and a big switch.) This is the rock-solid
foundation upon which the theory of evolution rests. If you are
skeptical, write for a free copy of our newsletter.

Big Bang Apartments:

Scientists now claiming that they can create life, have also created
their own construction company.
What they do is collect up all the gross elements RNA, DNA, bit of
the house - bricks, mortar, window frames etc. Then they simply
blow it up - following in the footsteps of the way their universe
was formed - and when the dust settles and the random bumping stops
they move into their houses.
