Take Care Vaishnava by Bhaktimarga Swami

9881054487?profile=RESIZE_400xI trekked in the rain to see our beloved Vaishnava Prabhu at the Toronto General Hospital. His heart is not in the best condition and so he deserved a visit.

The Man in the Antique Shop (a short story)

The Man in the Antique Shop

My acquaintance with him began a year ago.

After being laid off from my well-paying job in York, I had taken up a job in a factory in Manchester, fifty miles from my home. The job was tasteless, but at least it helped put some food on the table. My wife had cleaned me out after the divorce and my resources were meagre.

Every evening after work, my factory bus would leave me at this bus-stop. Here, I would have to wait for a connecting cross-county bus to take me on my ho
