Dallas Morning News,
Only a powerful genius could compose such an amazing work. Verses composed of only 2 or even 1 consonant and verses that create almost impossible pictures.
Went to a friend's house for lunch today; a small group of ladies we were. Rasa always has a good game to play, this time it was: each one should tell two lies and one true statement about herself, and the others have to guess which one was true. There were lots of fun moments and adventure stories that came out of it, but what I wanted to tell was this:
Please accept my humble obeisances.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
Hare Krishna, Jai Sri Sri Radha Bankebihari Ki Jai!
My Initiated name is Candra Das. I am a disciple of H.H Bhakti Tirtha Swami Maharaja. I am currently employed as a correctional counselor at Snake River Correctional Institution in Ontario, Oregon (Snake River Correctional Institution is located 11 miles east of the Idaho/Oregon state line). I have been employed with the Oregon Department of Corrections for 18 years.
Wouldn't you know it, the first time in over two years that I had no car (mine was having brake work done, so I'd left it overnight), I'd end up with not one but two commitments in the morning. As it turned out, I had to abandon one of them in order to do the other, but it all worked out.
Dallas Morning News,
Today being the appearance day of Bhaktivinode Thakur, we heard many of his wonderful qualities in this morning's class. He is worth taking shelter of for a number of reasons. Personally, I did pray to imbibe some of his ability to work in the world yet not be 'of it.' He served in the British court system in India and astonished them by his prodigious output of caseloads, yet this didn't prevent him from mainly focusing on his devotional writing and reading, his daily chanting, his raising a large family in Krishna consciousness.
Before taking to chanting the Hare Krishna mantra daily my wife used to smoke 2 packs of cigarettes every day. But with the help of this mantra she quickly and easily gave up smoking.
