Avrech_Article | Trade-24

Avrech_Article | Trade-24: "In fact, his automated money making system has become so popular, it has the banks shaking in their boots. That's because followers who have subscribed to the Sirix platform, have been boasting an incredible 23% return on investment.

In fact, in 2015 alone his users profited a combined $2.1 million with an average yearly income of $103,092. When compared to the 1.5% interest most banks provide, it becomes apparent why so many profit seekers are pulling their money out of their checking accounts and into the Sirix social platform, profit-creating."

BBD 3: Liberation from Material Planets | Bhaktivedanta Vedabase Online

BBD 3: Liberation from Material Planets | Bhaktivedanta Vedabase Online: "We should be very serious about attaining our eternal life full of bliss and knowledge. We have forgotten that this is actually our aim of life, our real self-interest. Why have we forgotten? We have simply been entrapped by the material glitter, by skyscrapers, big factories, and political play, although we know that however big we build skyscrapers, we will not be able to live here indefinitely. We should not spoil our energy in building mighty industries and cities to further entrap ourselves in material nature; rather, our energy should be used to develop Kṛṣṇa consciousness, in order to attain a spiritual body whereby we may enter into Kṛṣṇa's planet. Kṛṣṇa consciousness is not a religious formula or some spiritual recreation; it is the most important part of the living entity."

"You say that you would read only one book book if that was all that I had written"

"You say that you would read only one book book if that was all that I had written": "One should not partially study a book just to pose oneself as a great scholar by being able to refer to scriptures. In our Krsna consciousness movement we have therefore limited our study of Vedic literatures to Bhagavad-gita, Srimad-Bhagavatam, Caitanya-caritamrta and Bhakti-rasamrta-sindhu. These four works are sufficient for preaching purposes. They are adequate for the understanding of the philosophy and the spreading of missionary activities all over the world. If one studies a particular book, he must do so thoroughly. That is the principle. By thoroughly studying a limited number of books, one can understand the philosophy."

the question was who is Suta Goswami - Sastra Caksusa

the question was who is Suta Goswami - Sastra Caksusa: "Suta Goswami
When Sukadeva goswami gave his lecture there in the audience was Suta Goswami a very sharp hearing man, srutidhara. Srutidhara is one who having only once heard something keeps it in his memory, and Suta, having those qualities, was present in that meeting. The fourth sitting was in Naimisaranya where the rsis, apprehending the manifestation, of Kali-yuga, commenced and engaged themselves in a one thousand year campaign, yajna. Finding Suta Goswami they said, "We have got a good opportunity in the evening to hear about the Absolute and we heard that you, Suta, were present in that mysterious and famous assembly where Sukadeva gave his lecture about Bhagavatam and you memorized it all perfectly. We now humbly request that you deliver by way of lecture to us that Bhagavatam." Suta Goswami accepted their proposal and that was the last sitting in the form of regular evening lectures. Sixty thousand or so rsis, the scholars and performers of sacrifices, assembled to hear from him. It was after this sitting that Vyasadeva took the whole thing and compiled it in book form and made it public."

opportunities: "Creating such a virtual museum, i.e. a museum that exists only on the Internet, has its advantages and offers unique opportunities. Such a museum does not require the raising of funds (though contributions are gratefully accepted and greatly appreciated) to erect an actual building, but can be created by a person with the imagination, time, knowledge and the means to do so, not to mention the material to fill such a museum. Such as it is, a virtual (Internet-only) museum can only be filled with that which attracts the senses of sight and sound (at least until an olfactory chip is invented). The Museum of Family History to a great degree is composed of photographs and text and is somewhat interactive"

Experiencing Teen Drama Overload? Blame Biology : NPR

Experiencing Teen Drama Overload? Blame Biology : NPR: "Nonetheless, don't expect the teen to be happy and completely over it, since resentment and frustration are likely to linger. If the tornado has lost high velocity and dwindled into mere blusters, this, in itself, is a major achievement."
