Krishna's Perfect Arrangements

Truth in pictures
I have been thinking for many years that I would be with my mom when she was nearing the end of her life and thus naturally when she was “leaving her body” (Krishna devotee “lingo” for dying, since there is no death). However, it was mysterious how this might come to pass. Not being a “doer” type it seemed wishful thinking due to our being on opposite sides of the country and mainly since we were very estranged. This is a long story of course with fault on both our parts, yet in spite of this fact, and likely helped by her appreciation of my wife, we affectionately spoke on weekly calls, and she steadily helped us in many ways.

Seeing Material Miseries in a Positive Light

Perception
Our general conditioned tendency is to see the world—the things and people in it—as meant for our personal enjoyment and the utility of our selfish purpose. Although scientists may tout the scientific method and objective research they can’t escape seeing the world selfishly. Some may be selfless to an extent and be motivated to benefit others, yet the indirect goal is still personal satisfaction (to feel good by helping others). Or one may extend one’s self into others—groups, countries or perhaps all humanity—and work for their collective selfish interests, or to free them from disease or old disease so they can enjoy themselves free from misery. Is this the highest form of giving?

4-Day Countdown: Why Krishna Appears

Humans (at least us reasonable ones) crave reasons: "Why did the chicken cross the road? Why is the sky blue? Why is there air?."

Our questioning spirit manifests early:

World Yourh Day

Here in Sydney, Australia the Roman Catholic Church has borrowed the city from Sydneysiders to put on a week long spiritual pilgrimage they call World Youth Day. In a strange way it was like having 100,000 devotees come to town.



It’s been reported that 125,000 visitors have come to Sydney from across the world to attend the event and to join with hundreds of thousands of Australian Catholics.
