    'Faith in God can relieve pain'

    LONDON: "Religion is the opiate of the people" - Karl Marx had famously said. But can one's faith in God really ease pain? "Yes", say scientists. A team at Oxford University has based its findings on an experiment in which 12 Roman Catholics and 12 atheists were "tortured" with electric shocks as they studied two paintings - Virgin Mary and Leonardo da Vinci'… Continue

    Japa Marathon
    Hare Krsna. I was very fortunate on Thursday 2nd October 2008 that I visited Sri Sri Radha-Rasbihari Temple at ISKCON Juhu in Mumbai.....there was Japa marathon!

    The marathon started at 9am in morning and went till 6pm. I reached there at 1 pm but by the time I reached the temple I had already done 21 rounds of Japa. My target was that to take the opportunity to associate with devotees and chant as many rounds as possible. By 5-30 i had done 51 rounds!

    So while going home I was still chanting planning to push it to the magic figure of was ultimately Krsna's desire and mercy that I could complete 64 rounds. I had been greedy to do 64 rounds all these years and Krsna fulfilled my desire to chant 64 rounds of Japa.

    In near future there will also be a Japa Marathone at ISKCON Juhu temple in Mumbai. It is my open request to all the devotees to start such a Japa Marathon in their respective temples whenever it is possible and try to chant as many rounds as possible.

    Hare Krsna
    Attentive Japa - The Ultimate Solution
    After years of inattentive chanting I'm starting to realise that inattentive chanting creates moroseness and in one way it kills our enthusiasm in Krishna Consciousness. More inattentive rounds create more distaste towards the sweet name of the Lord.
    Even though one sticks to the process of Krishna consciousness even after years of inattentive chanting one hardly makes any progress by not concentrating on the holy name.
    In one of his lectures, HH Jayapataka Swami mentions that there is only one activity for which the soul is hankering for since time immemorial and that is to CHANT THE HOLY NAMES of Lord with great attention. He mentioned that simply by doing this one can attract the mercy and attention of the Lord and that is ALL THAT IS REQUIRED to solve all the problems.
    If our mind wanders from chanting then we can take a quick reading break and try to remember & read these points so that our mind & intelligence gets convinced that there is nothing important than attentive chanting. Before we start any activity we think why I should do it and what is in there for me? Following points (collected from various lectures) will help us to understand the 'real' benefits that one can achieve by chanting the holyname of Lord.

    * Attentive chanting of the holy name will give us good association
    * Attentive chanting of the holy name will give us all spiritual knowledge
    * Attentive chanting of the holy name will give us all spiritual strength
    * Attentive chanting of the holy name will give us enthusiasm and tolerance
    * Attentive chanting of the holy name will give us humility
    * Attentive chanting of the holy name will give us devotional service
    * Attentive chanting of the holy name will purify our heart(the place from where our sinful desire originate)
    * Attentive chanting of the holy name will remove all the offences
    * Attentive chanting of the holy name will keep us far away from the vaishnava aparadha
    * Attentive chanting of the holy name is the only way to beg 'real forgiveness' from the vaishnavas whom you have offended and abused
    * Attentive chanting of the holy name will eradicate even the worst sins of killing a brahmama or illicit sex
    * Attentive chanting of the holy name will give the determination to follow regualtive principle
    * Attentive chanting of the holy name will give the determination to practice vaishnava etiquitte
    * Attentive chanting of the holy name will give the determination to control the senses
    * Attentive chanting of the holy name will please Guru and Krishna
    * Attentive chanting of the holy name is the ultimate solution for all problems
    * Attentive chanting of the holy name will give us eternal peace
    * Attentive chanting of the holy name will give us love of Godhead

    Confessions of a Pirate
    For years I've been a law-abiding citizen never do any wrong but wondering why in the UK we pay such extortionate prices for goods? I use to buy my tapes and CDs at such ridiculous prices but then back in the late 90s Napster came alone. The great and powerful mp3 search was just beginning...I was able to download whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted - all for free. I finally felt my good karma being used up as I was getting back from the years of spending money.

    This has continued for several years and though a bought the occasional vinyl (for productions/DJ purposes) I haven't really bought much. The best was Napster then it switched to Morpheus then to WinMX to Soulseek to Bearshare to Emule to Bittorrent. I became interested in peer2peer (p2p) and checked out many websites which detailed the RIAA battle against the file sharers. We were the liberators - taking from the rich and giving to the masses.

    But this all changed this summer when a close friend recently interviewed Thes One from People Under The Stairs (P.U.T.S), an amazing underground hip hop band which speak about real life, making music and having fun. These guys spend so many hours in the studio, you wouldn't believe, spending so much money on production gear just to satisfy the fans and make a living. Yet the internet can take all that energy and translate it into file sharing. I use to support bands by buying their mechanidise, going to the gigs etc but never buying the album.

    They are coming out with an album entitled 'Fun DMC' this Monday, 29th September, and a recent poor quality leak with made and people have been downloading in the masses. PUTS are of my favourite bands of all time and I respect them as artists, yet I never bought anything from them. This is going to change as I am buying both the CD and vinyl along with other associated goods.

    Don't get me wrong, I love the internet and bittorrent and will continue to download music. It isn't wrong, it's just sharing music with friends. Just like when I use to like a song, I would record it onto tape similar the internet allows the same thing. But the difference is I will now support small/underground bands by buying the vinyls/CDs who are trying to make a livelihood and put many hours into something that is available at the click of a button.

    For more information on PUTS. Check out:

    * My mate Tim's site
    * A track is available here.
    * Check out the new album site

    If you like what you hear, go and support these guys - they're amazing!

    Large Medical Study of Near-Death Experiences
    A large study is to examine near-death experiences in heart attack patients.

    Doctors at 25 UK and US hospitals will study 1,500 survivors to see if people with no heartbeat or brain activity can have "out of body" experiences.

    Some people report seeing a tunnel or bright light, others recall looking down from the ceiling at medical staff.

    The study, due to take three years and co-ordinated by Southampton University, will include placing on shelves images that could only be seen from above.

    To test this, the researchers have set up special shelving in resuscitation areas. The shelves hold pictures - but they're visible only from the ceiling.

    Dr Sam Parnia, who is heading the study, said: "If you can demonstrate that consciousness continues after the brain switches off, it allows for the possibility that the consciousness is a separate entity.

    "It is unlikely that we will find many cases where this happens, but we have to be open-minded.

    "And if no one sees the pictures, it shows these experiences are illusions or false memories.

    "This is a mystery that we can now subject to scientific study."

    Dr Parnia works as an intensive care doctor, and felt from his daily duties that science had not properly explored the issue of near-death experiences.

    Process of death

    He said: "Contrary to popular perception, death is not a specific moment.

    "It is a process that begins when the heart stops beating, the lungs stop working and the brain ceases functioning - a medical condition termed cardiac arrest.

    "During a cardiac arrest, all three criteria of death are present. There then follows a period of time, which may last from a few seconds to an hour or more, in which emergency medical efforts may succeed in restarting the heart and reversing the dying process.

    "What people experience during this period of cardiac arrest provides a unique window of understanding into what we are all likely to experience during the dying process."

    Dr Parnia and medical colleagues will analyse the brain activity of 1,500 heart attack survivors, and see whether they can recall the images in the pictures.
    Hospitals involved include Addenbrookes in Cambridge, University Hospital in Birmingham and the Morriston in Swansea, as well as nine hospitals in the US.

    My Only Wish

    Design by Rasikananda Prabhu
    Animal Propensity vs. Human Propensity
    "The animal propensity is to exploit others. And human propensity should be to do good to others. That is the difference between animal propensity and human propensity."

    Srila Prabhupada (Sept. 24, 1968 in Seattle, Wash.)
    "a thorough change of heart in human beings all over the world"

    "Even those who are constantly engaged in sinful acts are all corrigible to the standard of perfect human beings if they take shelter of the devotees of the Lord. Jesus Christ and Muhammad, two powerful devotees of the Lord, have done tremendous service on behalf of the Lord on the surface of the globe. And from the version of Srila Sukadeva Gosvami it appears that instead of running a godless civilization in the present context of the world situation, if the leadership of world affairs is entrusted to the devotees of the Lord, for which a worldwide organization under the name and style of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness has already been started, then by the grace of the Almighty Lord there can be a thorough change of heart in human beings all over the world because the devotees of the Lord are able authorities to effect such a change by purifying the dust-worn minds of the people in general. The politicians of the world may remain in their respective positions because the pure devotees of the Lord are not interested in political leadership or diplomatic implications. The devotees are interested only in seeing that the people in general are not misguided by political propaganda and in seeing that the valuable life of a human being is not spoiled in following a type of civilization which is ultimately doomed. If the politicians, therefore, would be guided by the good counsel of the devotees, then certainly there would be a great change in the world situation by the purifying propaganda of the devotees, as shown by Lord Caitanya."
