Cyclist Miyamoto to Raise Funds for Akshaya Patra
From September 4 through 8,  Chikashi Miyamoto of Rosy Blue will be taking part in the Turin to Monte Carlo cycling challenge to support Akshaya Patra, the international charity providing food for education to children in India. Miyamoto is aiming to raise $30,000 (GBP 20,000 / EURO 24,000).
The cycling challenge will cover 470 kilometers, or 292 miles, and it includes 11,700 meters, or 38,400 feet, of uphill cycling, encompassing some of the most challenging mountain passes featured in previous Giro d’Italia routes. 

Have a Positive Attitude Always
In Kali-yuga life is very short (prayenalpayusah), and people are generally undisciplined (mandah), misguided (sumanda-matayah), and overwhelmed by the unfavorable results of their previous activities (manda-bhagyah). Thus their minds are never peaceful (upadrutah) literally no hope for a happy life.

Jai Srila Prabhupada!
