    Pakistan earthquake

    "let them hear, on the day of judgement, their own burdens in full, and also something of the burdens of those without knowledge, whom they mislead. alas, how grevious the burdens they will bear!" surah 16 text 25 "one day, He will say 'call upon those you thought to be My partners',and they will call upon them, but they will not listen to them; and We shall make a place for them of common perdition." surah 18 text 52 "and The Word will be fulfilled against them, because of their wrongdoing, and they will be unable to speak in plea." surah 27 text 85 "that day Allah will call to them and say: "where are My 'partners'?", whom ye imagined to be as such? those against whom the charges will be proved, will say: 'our Lord, these are the ones we led astray; we led them astray, as we were astray ourselves; we free ourselves of them in Thy Presence; IT WAS NOT US THEY WORSHIPPED. it will be said to them: call upon your 'partners' for help; they will call upon them; but they will not listen to them; and they will see The Penalty before them; how they will wish, 'if only we had been open to guidance!'" surah 28 text 62-64 we'll see "who God cares about?"

    Christ Consciousness

    according to Matthew 4-8, Jesus answered that in the earlier cited chapter: "therefore, whoever will humble himself like this little child is the one that is the greatest in the kingdom of heavens, and whoever receives one such young child on the basis of my Name receives me also. but whoever stumbles one of these little ones who put faith in me, it is more beneficial for him to have hung around his neck a millstone such as is turned by an ass and to be sunk in the wide open sea. woe to the world due to the stumbling blocks! of course, the stumbling blocks must of necessity come, but woe to the man through whom the stumbling block comes! if your hand or foot is making you stumble, cut it off and throw it away from you!"

    Suicide and one's destination...

    "then all the devotees, headed by Svarupa Damodar Goswami, concluded that because Haridas had committed suicide at the conflux of the rivers Ganges and Yamuna, he must have ultimately attained shelter at the Lotus Feet of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu." PURPORT Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur remarks that after one adopts the renounced order and accepts the dress of either a sanyassi or a babaji, if he entertains the idea of sense gratification, especially in relationship with a woman, the only atonement is to commit suicide in the conflux of the Ganges and the Yamuna. only by such atonement can his sinful life be purified. if such a person is thus punished, it is possible for him to attain the shelter of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu."

    he who thinks that the living entity is the slayer or that he is slain, does not understand. one who is in knowledge knows that the self slays not nor is slain. = B.G. 2:19
