Importance of Patience: SLOWCOACH SUNFLOWER (a story about patience and obedience)
Just came across a very nice, brief story emphasizing the importance of patience. I wonder how if we exercise more paitence, how much better we can do in marriage, in education, in career or business and other areas of our life. It's worth reading....
There was once a teacher who gave his pupils some seeds so they could plant, and look after, their very own sunflower. One boy in the class, who loved sunflower seeds, was so excited that he planted the seed and looked after it with great care for many days.......
Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.
In you, O LORD, I take refuge;
let me never be put to shame.
In your justice rescue me.
Into your hands I commend my spirit;
you will redeem me, O LORD, O faithful God.

With the Black Friday and Christmas shopping season around the corner, the shopping season is in full swing. One of the ways to save is by means of sites like Ebates that give cash back on your purchases through the merchants affiliated with that site.
In order to get cash back, you need to be logged into your Ebates account, and then click the appropriate merchant's link such as that of Walmart. Once you click, you will be directed to that merchant's site and any purchases you make at that site during the session, you may qualify to get cash (or in some cases, coupons).
If you are not a Ebates member, you can go to that site or you can join using my personal link below:
One who has chanted Hare Krsna, he cannot give it up. Cannot give it up. He has to come again.
This life or next life, Krsna will not leave him. Krsna... Once surrender sincerely, "Krsna, I am Yours",
Krsna will never leave him. He will protect you......
- His Divine Grace AC Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabupada
I have a Dell Latitude with Windows 7 laptop. Recently, my built-in mousepad stopped working and I needed to use an external mouse to do anything. The mousepad had been working and it's a new laptop, so I wasn't sure why it had stopped working all of a sudden. After a quick internet search, I realized that I had accidentally disabled the predefined mouse pad functionality. To restart the functionality, all I had to do was to press Function (Fn) and F5 keys simultaneously on my laptop. That did the trick and my laptop mousepad is working without any issues!
Q: How does the Divine look so lovable and beautiful? Sri Sri: Look within yourself, you are no less!
As is the vision, so is the world. Only a jeweller can recognise a jewel. Only the one who is beautiful can recognize beauty. Only those who are lovable will recognize love. But everyone has the capacity.
For man, mind is the cause of bondage and mind is the cause of liberation. Mind absorbed in sense objects is the cause of bondage and mind detached from sense objects is the cause of liberation. Therefore, the mind which is always engaged in Krsna consciousness is the cause of supreme liberation.

Devotional service is available to everyone in all stages of life. Love knows no boundaries. It takes a faithful student to understand the Vedas and then be able to explain it to others. It may be a difficult task, but preaching is definitely worthwhile. There is nothing like serving the Supreme Lord, so if we can get even one person to become a devotee, our efforts will have been successful.
