Lori's reply and Anantadev's

Dear Lori,
Thank you for your reply regarding `wicca'.

There are undoubtedly many religions all over the world. One has freedom to choose a religion according to one's faith. One must see whether the religion of his or her should keep one in love,harmony, co-operation and peace with people.

You referred to Lord Krishna as goddess. It is not correct. Actually He is God. He declares in Bhagavad-Gita (the famous Vedic scripture) that He is the Supreme Cause of all causes, the Source of everything, the Lord of gods and goddesses, the Controller of the entire universem the Father of all, and so on. Even, to many persons including even Hindu ones, Krishna is the mythological hero or one of the Hindu gods. Yet some of them are bewildered when they worship Him. Undoubtedly Krishna is eternally situated in the heart of every living entity as the Supersoul. Yet He is in His abode Krishnaloka in the spiritual universe and is also omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent. He is the Master of mystics. He can become smaller than the smallest and bigger than the biggest. One should not invent his speculative ideas of Lord Krishna, but accept the authority of Bhagavad-Gita to believe His words. However He gives us freedom to choose Him or reject Him. I want to avail myself of such freedom to be surrendered to the lotus feet of Lord Krishna.

Yes! Hare Krishna Welfare for the Deaf belongs to New Ages and I want it to be in tune with the modern/jet years though Krishna conciousness is traditional.

Any questions?

Hare Krishna!

I lived in Ocala, Florida. I am married about 16 years until now. I am wicca then I am explain what is wicca this is refers to a religion that many ( but not all witches practice. Wicca is an Earth-based religion that honors both the God and the Goddess. The word witch comes from the Old English words " wicce" , which means " female witch", and "wicca", meaning "wizard". A witch is someone who uses magick in his or her everyday life. That is all.I alway interesting about New Ages through world. That many different for occults, new ages..etc. I alway stay faithfully with the Goddess and God. I know that Krishna is Goddess. I need feeling more health than problem.

Brightest Blessings, Lori

How to face Maya

Sridhar's Compilation
Anantadev's editing
How to face Maya effectively?

Maya is the sum total of worldly attractions which takes one away from God or godly forces. To control temptations avoid boastfulness or overconfidence, always be mild and surrender yourself completely at the holy feet of the Almighty. God is benevolent enough to break all the Karmic shackles of your so many past lives. So, you should apply faith, devotion and yearning. Be sure that God is always merciful and that He forgives all your mistakes and misdeeds. He is for your upliftment only. He never curses you and He is already to fondle you when you yearn from Him with sincerity and simplicity. Develop catholicity and worship Him in all forms, adore Him in all names glorify Him in all fame.

Adjust your nature to depict godly qualities of love, patience, forgiveness, dutifulness and selflessness to the maximum. Never be angry. Never be short tempered. God is examing you from within or without, from all sides, always and He reviews your behaviour day and night. He gives (+) for your good qualities, He gives (-) for your bad habits and thus you can mould your destiny each and every second of your life.

He is impartial and very generous. So try to be devoted, dedicated and determined and succeed at the earliest.
Note by Anantadev Das : Maya is described by Bhagavad-Gita as one of the energies of the Lord. Maya means an illusory (unreal) energy.

Shri Krishna Janmashtami

To Members,
Shri Krishna Janmashtami ( the appearance day of Lord Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead) falls on Sunday, 12th August. It is said in Bhagavad-Gita that whoever understands the importance of Krishna's appearance and activities goes back to the spiritual world and does not return to this material world after death. So celebration of Janmashtami is very auspicious for it can give us opportunities to revive our lost relationship with Krishna, do something special for Him, improve our karma in this life and next life and in this way receive His special mercy. Janmashtami will be celebrated in Bangalore and Mumbai on Sunday, 12th August 2001.

The estimated budget for Janmashtami celebration is Rs.20,000/= ( including shamiana, food(prasadam), banners, electrical expenses, flowers, service charges and others).

Donate Generously
We request you to donate generously for Janmashtami celebration. Whoever donates can take great opportunities to be blessed by the Lord who emphasizes the importance of charity in the mode of goodness. The rest of the donations will be utilised for the deaf's welfare.

In case of a cheque, it should be in favour of `League of Devotees'.

You can either post or hand donation over to me. ( if you want to give donation to someone personally in Mumbai, meet Amardeep Sekhari or Tushar Kansara)

Hare Krishna!

Cycle of Elements

Dear Members,
Hare Krishna!
I think that many of you know Mrithyunjayan Shridhar as one who sometimes emails spiritual and philosophical messages to our mail group for your perusal/pleasure. He who was my schoolmate in Mumbai culls quotations from some books for my approval to be circulated to all of you. Being religious-minded, he who stays with his deaf wife and hearing daughter in Mumbai sometimes attends my Bhagavad-Gita programme. Hope all of you enjoy his compilations.

Hare Krishna!
Anantadev Das

Shridhar's compilation

Cycle of elements

There are 5 elements in nature. These are WOOD, FIRE, EARTH, METAL AND WATER.

These elements are inter-related in two ways, which means that there are two types of cycles of these elements. The Productive cycle and the Destructive cycle.

Productive Cycle:
Wood produces fire, which means you can produce fire by burning wood. Fire in turn produces earth because the fire burns and creates ash (earth). Earth produces metal, because metal is mined from the earth. Metal produces water, this is said because metal can be melted and then it acquires liquid state like water. Water produces wood because by watering only we can grow plants.

Destructive Cycle:
Wood destroys earth because trees grow on earth and suck away all minerals and leave the earth. Fire destroys metal because fire melts the fire. Earth destroys water, because earth (mud) absorbs all the water, when it rains. Metal destroys woods, because implements made of sharp metal can cut the trees. Water destroys fire because water can put off any fire.

Appreciation by the well-wisher - 2

Dear Ananta,
12th March 2001

First, allow me to congratulate you on the well-organised programme last night and also wish you all the success you need in future for the spread of good values & healthy lifestyles. It is commendable that you integrate yourself into the Deaf community in Bangalore for their moral sustenance and upliftment. It was really heartening to see families and individuals of different religions present to support this event in times of communal strife other regions of India and other nations.

Though I arrived at the programme late, I enjoyed whatever I saw and also interaction with all my deaf friends after it ended. One little point to take note of, though; I don't know if I should call it healthy criticism or accept it aspart of Deaf culture, but I have observed many of the deaf present do not give their undivided attention to the proceedings but carry on their personal conversations among themselves. I suppose it is acceptable if the programme is of dubious quality, but this should not be the case when it is of the calibre of last night's programme, more so when it is of a devotional nature. What do you think?

Anyway, I congratulate you once again on the smoothly directed & well- planned celebration, which I am sure would not have been as good as it was without the co-operation of all those mentioned in your email.

Wishing you well,

Christine.
