Truly, Faith is the life-giving tree of Bliss,It stems from the root of devotion,It is nourished by the determination of the devotee,It flowers by the Grace of the Guru,It fructifies with the Blessings of the Lord,And then it reaches out to the hearts of others,To seed, and take root, once again…Thank you Devotees for the seeds you have sown,For Faith is the offspring of Faith, in oneself and in others… :)

Wait For The Brick

A young and successful executive was traveling down a neighborhood street, going a bit too fast in his new Jagur. He was watching for kids darting out from between parked cars and slowed down when he thought he saw something. As his car passed, no Childern appeared. Instead, a brick smashed into the Jag's side door! He slammed on the brakes and drove the Jag back to the spot where the brick had been thrown. The angry driver then jumped out of the car, grabbed the nearest kid  and pushed him up against a parked car, shouting, "What was that all about and who are you?
Just what the heck are you doing? 
That's a new car  and that brick you threw is going to cost a lot of money.
Why did you do it?"
The young boy was apologetic. "Please mister ... please, I'm sorry... I didn't know what else to do," he pleaded.
"I threw the brick because no one else would stop..."
With tears dripping down his face and off his chin, the youth pointed to a spot just around a parked car.
"It's my brother," he said.
"He rolled off the curb and fell out of his wheelchair and I can't lift him up."

Now sobbing, the boy asked the stunned executive, "Would you please help me get him back into his wheelchair? He's hurt and he's too heavy for me."
Moved beyond words, the driver tried to swallow the rapidly swelling lump in his throat. He hurriedly lifted the handicapped boy back into the wheelchair, then took out his fancy handkerchief and dabbed at the fresh scrapes and cuts. A quick look told him everything was going to be okay.

"Thank you and may God bless you," the grateful child told the stranger.
Too shook up for words, the man simply watched the little boy push his wheelchair-bound brother down the sidewalk toward their home. It was a long, slow walk back to the Jaguar. The damage was very noticeable, but the driver never bothered to repair the dented side door. He kept the dent there to remind him of this message: Don't go through life so fast that someone has to throw a brick at you to get your attention!

God whispers in our souls and speaks to our hearts. Sometimes when we don't have time to listen, He has to throw a brick at us.

It's our choice: Listen to the whisper ... or wait for the brick!

Trusting God's Plan!!!

You are the vehicle God uses to express Himself on this planet. Allow Him to flow through you. It is only by allowing this that His expression can be experienced. Believe it or not, you have the final decision on what will flow through you and into the world. Not even God would force Himself through you, unless you allow Him to. When you allow God to flow through you, this is your natural flow, this is your trueself, and this is your Godself. My friend, if you allow God to flow through you, you would want no other way. When you allow God to flow through you, peace, love and joy extend through you and into the world. Forgiveness and love are offered immediately to your brother and sister. And what you offer your brother and sister, you experience yourself, for it must first flow through you. Allow yourself to see and feel His expression being expressed through His other vehicles and all you will ever experience will be peace of mind, love and joy.

An old Vaishnava Devotee lived on a farm in the mountains with his young grandson. Each morning Grandpa was up early sitting at the kitchen table reading his Bhagavad Gita. His grandson wanted to be just like him and tried to imitate him in every way he could.One day the grandson asked, 'Grandpa! I try to read the Bhagavad Gita just like you but I don't understand it, and what I do understand I forget as soon as I close the book. What good does reading the Bhagavad Gita do?'The Grandfather quietly turned from putting coal in the stove and replied, 'Take this coal basket down to the river and bring me back a basket of water.' The boy did as he was told, but all the water leaked out before he got back to the house.The Grandfather laughed and said, 'You'll have to move a little faster next time,' and sent him back to the river with the basket to try again. This time the boy ran faster, but again the basket was empty before he returned home. Out of breath, he told his grandfather that it was impossible to carry water in a basket, and he went to get a bucket instead.The old man said, 'I don't want a bucket of water, I want a basket of water. You're just not trying hard enough,' and he went out the door to watch the boy try again.At this point, the boy knew it was impossible, but he wanted to show his grandfather that even if he ran as fast as he could, the water would leak out before he got back to the house.The boy again dipped the basket into river and ran hard, but when he reached his grandfather the basket was again empty. Out of breath, he said, 'See Grandpa, it's useless!''So you think it is useless?' The old man said, 'Look at the basket.'The boy looked at the basket and for the first time realized that the basket was different. It had been transformed from a dirty old coal basket and was now clean, inside and out.The Grandfather said softly, 'Son, that's what happens when you read the Bhagavad Gita. You mightnot understand or remember everything, but when you read it, you will be changed, inside and out.And this is the reason why we should read the ‘Song of the Lord’ a.k.a. The Bhagavad Gita!Hare Krishna !!!--Hare Krishna Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna Hare HareHare Rama Hare Rama, Rama Rama Hare Hare

Barber and Customer

A man went to a barbershop to have his hair cut and his beard trimmed.As the barber began to work, they began to have a good conversation.They talked about so many things and various subjects. When theyeventually touched on the subject of God, the barber said: "I don'tbelieve that God exists." "Why do you say that?" asked the customer."Well, you just have to go out in the street to realize thatGod doesn't exist. Tell me, if God exists, would there be so many sick people?Would there be abandoned children? If God existed, there would beneither suffering nor pain. I can't imagine a loving a God who wouldallow all of these things."The customer thought for a moment, but didn't respond because hedidn't want to start an argument. The barber finished his job and thecustomer left the shop. Just after he left the barbershop, he saw aman in the street with long, stringy, dirty hair and an untrimmedbeard. He looked dirty and unkempt.The customer turned back and entered the barber shop again and he saidto the barber: "You know what? Barbers do not exist." "How can you saythat?" asked the surprised barber. "I am here, and I am a barber. AndI just worked on you!""No!" the customer exclaimed. "Barbers don't exist because if theydid, there would be no people with dirty long hair and untrimmedbeards, like that man outside.""Ah, but barbers DO exist! What happens, is people do not come to me.""Exactly!"- affirmed the customer. "That's the point! God, too, DOESexist! What happens, is, people don't go to Him and do not seek and goto Him that is why all of them suffer. That's why there's so much painand suffering in the world."
