Signing and Shining
Not but a few days ago I signed
papers for registering ISKCON Saranagati with the property in Venables Valley,
British Columbia. Today I signed papers for our newest project, ISKCON Milton.
Also, I noticed when I returned form the airport, our downtown centre at 243
Avenue Road has got a new paint job. The work on all window and door frames is
still in progress. It looks spiffy, classy, handsome.
Anyway, all the above
achievements indicate we are growing and improving, yet much work still needs
to be done. Regardless, it’s encouraging.
A second trip to the western part
of the Greater Toronto Area was at the house of Rajasuya and Surabhi. Their
oldest son, Rishab, is getting married to Juhi this September. My visit to
their home was a visit of encouragement. We had a great meal with asparagus on
the menu. For me that is a measure of success.
It was great teaming the Brampton
visitors at Rajasuya’s house with the Tuesday night Gita Chat group from a
place called Owen Sound. We have begun our discussion on Chapter Three of the Gita,
entitled “Karma Yoga.” The interesting feature of today’s discussion was
centered around war versus non-war. Some people conclude that intelligence is
synonymous to being quiet, even inert. The argument arises around defending
one’s people and property and dharma lifestyle. If a righteous culture
is threatened by adharma, selfish motives and operations, then weapons
may need to come out of storage.
May the Source be with you!
