Thursday, August 23, 2007 Eastman, Quebec
Raccoons, skunks and porcupines take a major beating these days. I see lots of these little crearures dead on the highway every day. Their aggressors are automobiles of course. Quebec is a spacious territory. The Appalachian Mountains are now in our midst. The vistas are great. Bike trails are plentiful. I would walk down a trail with trees on either side, eat some trail mix and once the munching was completed, I would chant the Maha-mantra. What more could you ask?
At break time we went to Lac Libby, off of highway 112 close to Eastman, where I took a swim and ate some wraps.I also took a few moments to read a series of letters by Srila Prabhupada (my guru). This compilation was from 1972. One theme that comes across is the appeal by him to disciples to pay attention to details and always conduct excellent behaviour. One should never embarass one's teacher and bring ill repute. His warning was clear. It is something to hold dear.
Vedavyasa and Simon from Montreal joined us again today. The support is superb.
