Thank you Visible, for holding the proverbial torch. Just wanting to let you know, that there are young people alive who know what is truly important. Rare that a young mind can escape the dogma, materialism, and social programming of today, but "lost boys" (and girls) do exist, taking direction from their hearts, the one mind, and the higher power...

even Henry Ford ("The International Jews) makes references to the light, so there must be something in it (grin).

you're in top form here, so appreciating this verbal transcript of the written transcript of the lines in between.

♫Coke, it's the real thing♫. HHAHAHHA!

Hi Vis,Thank you for reminding me,for the umpteenth time,where my attention should reside.
Lately I've been battling with the distractions of material existence-needed another wake-up call!
Holly Rae-thank you for restoring a glimmer of hope-easy to despair of the prevailing mentality of my children's and grandchildren's generations.
And yes,I realise my peers are mostly just as clueless!

"Twenty Four Gurus"
- Srimad Bhagavatam

Once King Yadu saw Lord Dattatreya (Avadhoot) in a forest and addressed him "Sir, you are indeed quite capable, energetic and wise. Such as you are, why do you live in the forest, free from all desires? Even though you have neither kith and kin nor even a family, how could you be so blissful and self-contented?"

The Avadhoot (one who has shaken off all worldly desires) replied, "My bliss and contentment are the fruits of self-realization. I have gained the necessary wisdom from the whole creation, through 24 Gurus. I shall elaborate the same for you".

Shri Dattatreya had twenty-four teachers from nature "many are my preceptors," he told King Yadu, "selected by my keen sense, from whom acquiring wisdom freely, I wander in the world…. The earth, air/breeze, sky, fire, the sun, pigeon, python, sea, moth, elephant, ant, fish, Pingala the courtesan, arrow-maker, infant/playful boy, the moon, honeybee, deer, bird of prey, maiden, serpent, spider, caterpillar and water are my twenty four preceptors.

Srila Bhaktivedanta Svami Maharaja came to the West penniless, on the Scindia Navigation ship, with an old and torn cloths, a 'worn and torn' Gita, and three volumes of Srimad-Bhagavatam – this was his only luggage, along with one pair of karatalas and two mantras: "Sri Krsna Caitayana, Prabhu Nityananda, Sri Advaita, Gadhadhara, Srivasadi Gaura bhakta vrnda," and "Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare."

Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu's prediction was that "Very soon, a day will come that devotees will preach My nama: 'Krsna,' 'Rama,' 'Hare,' 'Gaura' – and this chanting will go to each and every village of the world."

Srila Svami Maharaja, and for that matter Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and all His followers, did not come to this world for any worldly gain. He did not come for rupees, or guilders (Dutch money), or pounds. He came to give the real treasure of Sri Caitanaya Mahaprabhu to everyone; not just devotees, but anyone to whose ear the maha-mantra would go to, whether that person is a tree, grass, animal, man, god, or goddess. Wherever it would go, it would reach everyone's ear and take them towards Krsna, towards God.

He came poor and there was no one to give him svagatam (welcome) when he arrived.
He came alone.
Actually Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and Radha-Krsna were with him, and his Gurudeva and guru-parampara were with him, but this was not seen externally. Everyone saw that he was alone, but he was not alone.

"I pray to you all that you will give your company, so that we may give energy and impression to those who have left Iskcon but are still chanting the holy name. We should try to call all devotees – those who are kanistha Vaisnavas and those who are madhyama Vaisnavas. All should be called, and we should embrace them and give them respect. A person who is superior has so much mercy for those who are juniors. Have no envy at all.

If anyone is doing anything opposed to us, we should be like Haridasa Thakura and Prahlada Maharaja. Thus, we can preach the mission everywhere."

When asked what would happen if at the time of death we could not remember Krishna (God), Srila Prabhupada responded, "Don't worry, Krishna will remember you."
