  1. Somehow I found this oldie but goodie thread. The editing of the Sri Caitanya Bhagavata is complete and the missing chapters are being added (but not yet placed in cyberspace until their final editing is complete). The new site for the Kingdom of God and its Bhagavata is CauseOfAllCauses.com for anyone interested in flooding their living rooms with tears. I miss you guys. Some of my best moments were spent at Audarya, way back when. gHari
  2. Just finished finally editing this, and knew I should share it with all of you. One of the benedictions offered by Srila Vrindavan das in his Madhya 13 of the Sri Caitanya Bhagavata: It required many many changes; punctuation, grammar, and spelling type things. Lord Caitanya deserves a first class job. It would be appreciated if you could note any remaining errors, or suggestions you may have for better readability. I still have another 23 chapters to edit, so your help is very meaningful. I think you will be happy that you read this second authorized accounting of the salvation of the rogues, Madhai and Jagai; definitely a good use of ten or fifteen minutes. gHari ------------------ Gary Stevason Seeking the Kingdom of God
  3. Explanation of techno-radical terms below available here: http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap020806.html <blockquote>How fast do fundamental particles wobble? A surprising answer to this seemingly inconsequential question is coming out of Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York, USA and may not only indicate that the Standard Model of Particle Physics is incomplete but also that our universe is filled with a previously undetected type of fundamental particle. Specifically, the muon, a particle with similarities to a heavy electron, has had its relatively large wobble under scrutiny since 1999 in an experiment known as g-2 (gee-minus-two), pictured above. The result galvanizes other experimental groups around the world to confirm it, and pressures theorists to better understand it. The rate of wobble is sensitive to a strange sea of virtual particles that pop into and out of existence everywhere. The unexpected wobble rate may indicate that this sea houses virtual particles that include nearly invisible supersymmetric counterparts to known particles. If so, a nearly invisible universe of real supersymmetric particles might exist all around us. </blockquote>

    Thank you and forgive me

    Yes, if you ask for forgiveness you are already forgiven.

    Thanks JNdas

    Ki Jai! Let it happen! I see me starting with japa beads under a tree, becoming an accepted fixture in the park. Then after a month or so the drum would come out and the singing would become a little louder. I see me travelling from village to village, park to park. No big sales pitch for money or converts, just some sweet chanting to turn some hearts. We aren't crazy folk - I want them to see that. We are so very fortunate.

    Vedesu, were you also Vedesu on SRV? That was where Gary became gHari one day - sort of a self-initiation ceremony to curb my envy of all the beautiful spiritual names the devotees had. I also remember that when Agrahya das closed up the SRV, many of us went to VNN. Then after a few years, that died too, and Jahnava-Nitai das became our munificent shelter. Maybe now we're ready to talk to real people, in real life. T r e m b l e. A father and mother approached me at Ratha Yatra weeks ago because their eleven year old daughter wanted to ask me about why I chant all the time. I felt a little self-conscious and looked around for a priest, but then decided to bear the possible criticisms around me and tell the girl the truth from my heart. Surely all the years here and there on the net helped me offer the young lady the best assistance I could. I didn't do too bad. Her eyes lit up when I said Hare Krsna meant "Please Radha, help me serve Krsna". It was meant to be. Yesterday, my first thought was "What will I do"? This is my life. This was my life. Real people are scary, but soon I won't need to work so I won't have to care about public opinion - then I'll be in the park every day. See you there. gHari

    Thanks JNdas

    Yes, indeed. Thank you both for being part of my life - the only part that really matters in this desert of darkness out here in the wilderness. Whatever my motivation, this is where I've lived since I returned home too many years ago. Does anyone know of any other gentle places like this on the net where people don't bicker all day and night. I'm looking for a new home. Maybe we can convince JNdas to join us there for some Hari Katha.
  8. The stars will disappear. The earth will be gone. This 'you' you once knew will no longer be known. All anxiety will disappear and absolute satisfaction will greet blissful ecstasy as eternal you take your first step into the Kingdom of God, Vaikuntha. That is when the world will end. It can happen tomorrow, if that's everything you really want. This is the real answer, but it may take some good fortune to accept it as the way it is. May that fortune be yours.
  9. Remembering the Lord at the time of death??? Easy. Don't forget Him.

    Vegan vs vegetarian

    It made me aware that in this hell, every penny I spend contributes to cow killing. I am more serious than ever about floating through with only the essentials. The goswamis had it right. A different tree every night. I do not believe that people will stop eating calves if there are no dairy farms. I think that females and males will both be slaughtered like steers are now and some will be killed while still calves. This means there will be far fewer cows, or meat will be so cheap that everyone will eat more. The consensus among future western demonic generations would be that cows are only good for blood.

    Vegan vs vegetarian

    Sure, OK, whatever. The rudeness and arrogance just confirmed my suspicions that the words were not from Paramatma. We know another part of the equation that is beyond the understanding of PETA.

    Vegan vs vegetarian

    That would be nice. Let's e-bomb the slaughterhouses. Let's raise the consciousness of the West. Let's force stores to put pictures of cows on every package of meat. Let's mobilize these threads' energy toward stopping the desire for blood. Let's chant Hare Krsna in every park in the world, starting tomorrow morning.

    Well, I don't smoke weed, but I admit I do get a little cryptic and poetic at times. I am suggesting that we cannot stop cows from being born. If our goal is stop half the cows from existing, then I think it is not that easy. If we want to stop all Western cows' births except those in zoos, then I doubt that is possible.

    Why are jivas born as cows? What if they couldn't be born as cows when they need to be? Can that happen? Can they be born as cows even though they don't need to be cows now? Is it all so elementary that the brain can know and understand all the implications involved?

    Are we rewriting the Bhagavad-gita now? People will always be filled with doubt on the mental platform. Should I do this? Should I do that? Lemme weigh the pros and cons and drive my own chariot. After all, it is my chariot! And I know better. It seems to me all this mental trickery is leading you away from God consciousness (apa-radha).

    Personal vs. Impersonal God

    I remember a while back there was a study among North American Christians. I seem to recall being amazed that close to half of them believed God was impersonal, a force, the All. So it really doesn't necessarily follow that the people will share the speculation of the theologians.

    Sita Ram Goel on Jesus

    All these whiz-kid articles by docta this and swami that. I would read something by me or Mahak long before I'd read all that cheating nonsense, where words are compared to words on the synaptic scales of the mental platform. There's a price that has to be paid before one can have an opinion here. These fellows haven't even paid the tuition yet. They know nothing. They don't even know they know nothing. How dumb is that?

    Sita Ram Goel on Jesus

    John 14:6 Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me". That is, no one comes to the Father except through the way. That is, no one comes to the Father except through the truth. That is, no one comes to the Father except through the life. Context is always important: 7If you really knew me, you would know[b] my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him." 8Philip said, "Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us." 9Jesus answered: "Don't you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, 'Show us the Father'? 10Don't you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you are not just my own. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. 11Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves. 12I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. 14You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it. Jesus Promises the Holy Spirit 15"If you love me, you will obey what I command. 16And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever— 17the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be[c] in you. 18I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. 19Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. 20On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. 21Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show myself to him."
  21. DRINK A GLASS OF MILK SAVE A COW ________ We really don't have guns, but if you let us live, we'll give you MILK. ............ p l e a s e ! Otherwise they'll kill us, and eat us, as soon as they can. ............. p l e a s e !
  22. The point is: the cows are alive now. They have taken birth. This is the reality. They are alive. How do we save them? If our strategy is to cause the demons to slaughter all female cows for meat thereby causing fewer cows to be born and suffer, then that is the game plan. But now, we have the cows. Tomorrow 103,000 will be dead. How many people does it take to drink 103,000 cows' milk a day? A million? Ten million? Not all that many. Time and circumstance.

    cow's milk again

    Where would you get an idea like that? You must think I'm a real moron. And that's okay, but don't expect me to respect anything further anyone like that might say.
  24. BG 8.5: And whoever, at the end of his life, quits his body, remembering Me alone, at once attains My nature. Of this there is no doubt. BG 8.6: Whatever state of being one remembers when he quits his body, O son of Kuntī, that state he will attain without fail. BG 8.7: Therefore, Arjuna, you should always think of Me in the form of Kṛṣṇa and at the same time carry out your prescribed duty of fighting. With your activities dedicated to Me and your mind and intelligence fixed on Me, you will attain Me without doubt. BG 8.8: He who meditates on Me as the Supreme Personality of Godhead, his mind constantly engaged in remembering Me, undeviated from the path, he, O Pārtha, is sure to reach Me.
