Rascal Nationalism (SP Quote)


Rascal nationalism -

Disciple: Several times, Śrīla Prabhupāda, you have told people connected with the U.N. that theirs is simply an association of barking dogs. And they are always surprised to hear such a strong statement.

Śrīla Prabhupāda: Yes. But actually, it is a fact. People today are no different from some dogs barking. "I am a bulldog," "I am a terrier," "I am a collie," "I am a Greek," "I am a Frenchman," "I am a Swede." And with this misunderstanding of who they are, they waste so much energy and money and time, simply for barking about this or that bodily concern.

The result of all this barking is nothing. No United Nations. Rather, every other day sees the appearance of some new national flag. Bharam udvahato vimūḍhān: they have made a big bombastic arrangement for unity, but the result is nothing. Bharam udvahato vimūḍhān: these rascals they are simply making a big, big arrangement. The result is nothing.

And despite their obvious failure, they are determined to remain rascals. "Oh, the United Nations. What a gorgeous attempt we are making toward unity. Of course, we have no unity, but our building is adorned by 300 flags."

The problem is, they are offering their obeisances to their flag, not to God. Kṛṣṇa says, mam namaskuru: "All of you are in fact spiritual beings, so be happy by offering your obeisances to Me." But they are thinking, "No. 'Flag namaskuru.' We must offer our obeisances to a flag." Just see what rascals they are! What will they gain by offering obeisances to some flag?

Disciple: In their next life, instead of going back to the spiritual world, they may be born as a cockroach in that same country.

Śrīla Prabhupāda: And then their own countrymen will kill them.

"No, friends, please don't kill me. I am your countryman. I am your countryman. I belong to the same nation."

"Who cares about you flies and cockroaches? We shall kill you. 'American cockroach'? Who cares about you?"

"No, you don't understand. In my past life I was a staunch nationalist. Yes, due to this material misconception and over-attachment I have now received the body of a cockroach. But please don't kill me."

If you become a cockroach, even an American cockroach, who will care about you? Will anyone show special consideration to you? But dehāntara-prāptiḥ: after this body, you must accept another body. That you cannot avoid. 

Then what good will your nationalism do you? Now you are a great nationalist. But when you have to accept another body, how can you save yourself and not become a cockroach?

Unfortunately, your next body is not your choice. It is in another's hands. Karmaṇā daiva-netreṇa: according to your actions in this body. you'll get a suitable next body by the arrangement of nature.

But that is under nature's supervision. You cannot say, "Give me a beautiful body in a very wealthy American family."

"No, no," Mother Nature will say. "You no longer have that discretionary power. You had it; you had a human life. Now you have to accept my discretion. I will now give you your new body according to your past actions, just according to how you are infected by the material modes."

So this spiritual knowledge is the greatest science. But sadly, these great educators and leaders do not know it. No one knows it. Instead of understanding that their way of life is a fallacy, they are asking whether God and the soul and the next life are a fallacy. This is their intelligence. What rascaldom!

Hare Krishna!

Damodar Das Vyas Puja 2022

DamodaraDas Cooper Clark 

My tribute to my spiritual master on the occasion of his 126th birthday.

Vyas Puja Tribute 2022.

Dear Srila Prabhupada -

You are the one I pronounce prayers to three times daily and offer food to and dedicate my life too although imperfectly.

You are the one who can unbuckle the straight jacket of my karma and liberate me to a life of holy sanity.

You are the one who always smiled at me whenever we met even though I deserved a good thrashing.

You are the one who sent me to Washington DC and who sustained me as I gave your message to members of Congress.

You are the one who is forever my guiding light and heart opener who plucked me out of the muck of my tendencies.

You are the one who told the BTG staff to get out of our stuffy office and hit the streets with the sparkling Holy Name.

You are the one who wrote me letters that instructed me and sustained me by ever wishing me well.

You are the one who in the early months sat on a makeshift Seat of Vyas and fearlessly administered the straight sauce.

You are the one who sold me your Srimad Bhagwatam 3-volume set which yanked me off my Buddhist train of thought.

You are the one whose 3 Bhagwatams I worship today on my desk altar between the Jagannaths and Radha Krishna.

You are the one whose life sustaining quotes I post every day on two Facebook devotee groups.

You are the one who kindly named DC's uninstalled bell metal murtis Radha Damodar before they left for the traveling party.

You are the one who then gave us ISKCON's first Krishna murti Madan Mohan to be joined by a Radharani of your design.

You are the one who is an ocean of mercy and no one can estimate the depth of your inconceivable kindness.

You are the one I left one time but you brought me back and I pray I stay with you forever.

You are the one who even while I was away for four months was always my reference marker and guidepost.

You are the one who gives us all we need to know in your books if only we have the patience to unpack the secrets.

You are the one whose spoken words even in recordings are like honey drops of nectar for the heart.

You are the one who invites us all to sail away with you to the far bank of the River Viraja where pure souls await.

You are the one whose ISKCON is only 56 years old and who knows how much the future will proclaim your greatness.

You are the one who surely stands in the firmament along with Jesus and Buddha as a great liberator.

You are the one who wore a ring given to you by someone so that they would always be in Krishna's service.

You are the one who was expert in everything as the occasion required a Philosopher a Cook a diligent Treasurer.

You are the one whose instruction to chant Hare Krishna 24 hours daily is embedded in my soul as the rule of my life.

You are the one who wrote me that "English translation of prayers is good" but I still say them as you did.

You are the one who sat under a tree on October 16, 1966 and opened a path for me to an infinite world.

You are the one whose chanting that day gave me a crazy vision that I was riding up an infinite silver ramp.

You are the one whose chanting Hare Krishna made me chant too on an upward ride to ever increasing bliss.

You are the one whose disciple Hayagriva that day gave me a leaflet that said I could Stay High Forever.

You are the one in Tompkins Square Park who gave us a political force that I saw liberating the cosmos.

You are the one whose politics went far beyond the War Resisters League or Liberation Magazine or Dellinger or McReynolds.

You are the one who was the star of my movies and made my camera into an instrument as good as Ganesh's pen.

You are the one who returned from San Francisco in April 1967 to our airport welcome as seen in my movie "Vaishnavas."

You are the one who was welcomed by a big crowd including the health food store owner lady we called Mother Nature.

You are the one who was so pleased that we had built you a proper though very simple Vyasasan in your absence.

You are the one who recuperated from your stroke in Long Branch NJ but didn't stop instructing us how to expand ISKCON.

You are the one who had us wear little Jagannaths on a string around our necks.
You are the one who said my little movie was "very nice" but I noticed you closed your deities' curtains before I showed it.

You are the one who graciously let me film you the day before you left New York and we feared we'd never see you again.

You are the one who sat on your little space in the rear court building of 26 Second Avenue as I made "Swamiji."

You are the one who is an ideal subject for meditation as you chant, read, eat, and give instructions in that movie.

You are the one who in "Gurudev" was welcomed at Kennedy Airport in 1969 by an even larger crowd of dancing disciples.

You are the one who made us all leap in ecstasy when you got up and danced with us there.

You are the one who then returned to your apartment at 26 Second Avenue and called it "my old home."

You are the one who lectured at the 61 Second Avenue temple which used to be P. Blechman and Sons tuxedo rental parlor.

You are the one who I filmed in "Paramhansa" benedicting Boston and Montreal with your angelic presence.

You are the one who waved to me smiling as I bowed down to you while filming 
you leaving your Montreal apartment.

You are the one who waved to me again as I filmed you at the Montreal airport, thus ensuring my eternal bond to you.

You are the one who did your morning walk on city streets with Jadurani and Goursundar looking every moment the King of Boston.

You are the one who presided at the Glenville Avenue temple in Allston in front of the partition I built with my Dad's help.

You are the one who thus engaged my father in Krishna's service by your holy mercy.

You are the one who consented to be in "The Full Nectarine" a short movie by Nayana Bhiram and myself.

You are the one who thereby told a group of devotees and local children about Lord Chaitanya's taking sannyas.

You are the one whose transcendent presence there in Brooklyn Botanical Gardens made us call it Brooklyn Brindaban.

You are the one whose expansive spirit guided me as I served at Back To Godhead as art director and article writer.

You are the one who saved me I'm sure from destroying myself with my clever fabrications and ingenious degradations.

You are the one to whom I owe any continued propriety or sensibility in my life.
You are the one who said "Everything is Person" and thus obliterated the feeble philosophies of materialists.

You are the one who thus opened a view of the cosmos as composed not of dead stuff but of conscious entities everywhere.

You are the one who rides on the front of the Jagannath cart like a stalwart sea captain braving the storms of Kali Yuga.

You are the one who is our Hero and Deliverer, our Priest and Potentate, yes for my money the King of the World.

You are the one who is always my best friend even though I have denied you three times and even more than that.

You are the one whose mercy reaches down even to an idiot like me who wallows in the mud of self-importance.

You are the one who beckons us home, a beacon of hope and glory for all sentient beings, including me,

a lame man stumbling to your lotus feet, Damodara Das.

HKC Jaipur (Dayalu Nitai) History Revision Question

Hare Krishna Community | Facebook

 krishna1008: Dayalu Nitai's HKC Jaipur Folks Have Not Responded

krishna1008: Hitler-anugas Meltdown Increasing

krishna1008: Dayalu Nitai / HKC Jaipur update

PADA: Thanks JM for your question about HKC Jaipur vs PADA relationship. Wow. Sorry! Their people are giving you the upside down version of the history of our exchanges. I know, some of their people are still criticizing PADA as an offender etc. What went wrong? 

OK let us review our history, at least my side of it, in brief. Keep in mind, they are never being consulted over this history by professional writers, the police, FBI, media, book authors etc. because evidently -- their history is -- incorrect. Neither they are being consulted by professional media people even today, as we are. 

=================

OK Some years ago the HKC group -- i.e. Kamsahanta dasa / Sanat (Steve Voith) / Mukunda (Mark Whitely) / Prahlad das (Paul Coats) / Pancali / Naranarayan / Dayalu Nita's HKC Jaipur team / began to attack PADA, saying we are giving ISKCON a bad name -- because we helped the gurukulis sue the GBC for mass child abuse. 

Which mean? The HKC ilk folks clearly wanted the child abuse to continue -- to add to their pile of victims -- and worse, at the time, there was a growing epidemic of suicides of their victims going on. They did not even think this was a problem -- evidently.

Therefore! Abuse and suicides should be allowed to continue. Wait! The process of increasing abuse and suicides is going to eventually explode in the media anyway and -- give ISKCON "a good name" by citing -- it is an abuse AND suicide cult. Allowing abuse and suicides to continue was exactly what some of the GBC ilk folks ALSO wanted at the time. 

Then the HKC folks combined forces with the GBC's folks, and ganged up with various GBC type folks to attack PADA. Of course PADA's idea is simple -- when victims are being abused and / or dying, we have to stop the bleeding ASAP -- and then worry about the rest later on.

Thus, PADA wanted to halt the abuse / suicides program, and these guys thought that was a bad idea. And they have never explained -- why? And worse, they called the abuse and suicides program "the golden body of ISKCON" and anyone who attacks their abuse and suicides program is "destroying ISKCON." Child abuse and subsequent suicides is "the golden body of Krishna"? Ummm, nope, it might be the golden body of Beelzebub, but not Krishna?

Anyway! Fine. Let us say for the sake of argument -- they are correct -- PADA is  giving ISKCON a bad name. Therefore, let us work with the people who they promote and start giving ISKCON a good name! Agreed. Sign me up. So who do the HKC folks choose to work with -- and promote, to give Krishna a good name?

HKC Jaipur's REMEDY FOR BAD PUBLICITY!

HARI SAURI DASA: OK right away the HKC folks began to cite "Hari Sauri's Diary" -- where he attacks me and Sulochana as "bogus sahajiyas." Wait? You mean Bhavananda's bucket boy is the person we need to cite as our HKC authority? Did we forget to mention Bhavananda's program is cited as being a big part of the child abuse in India? Some of the victims have complained, it is a Satanic child sacrifice cult. Wow, lets work with these guys! 

Did we forget to mention -- ex-children from their process reported being starved, beaten, having their teeth knocked out -- and / or being sexually assaulted -- in Bhavananda's / Hari Sauri's regime? Andy Warhol's sampradaya is going to fix ISKCON! 

Did we forget to mention Sulochana said -- people like Hari Sauri's writings are  "painting a bull's eye on my back to get me killed"? Did we also forget to mention, Sulochana was -- in fact killed -- thanks to these HKC authority folks painting him as a sahajiya. Therefore, in the view of HKC Jaipur, the people who help defend mass molesting and get Sulochana assassinated are "giving ISKCON a good name"? Let us work with and promote them! 

Foolish me! I forgot! The murdering of Vaishnavas and defending pedophile worship program gives ISKCON a good name! Who knew? 

Worse, Sulochana's murder was credited -- even by stalwart GBC-ophiles like Mukunda swami -- as giving ISKCON a BAD name. The GBC and HKC folks have been saying us alleged pot smoking and sari wearing sahajiyas are the only people who address the problem that -- pedophiles are not acharyas. 

The HKC ilk are the ONLY sincere devotees, so they don't bother to address the real issues -- rather only we bogus "dopey gopi" sahajiyas are addressing the real problems. Only us bogus sahajiyas know that pedophiles are not God's successors and acharyas. WTF! That is like advertising for people to become sahajiyas, so they can distinguish good from evil.  

HKC people also claimed me (and Sulochana?) are people who don't chant our rounds. Swell, the people who DO chant their rounds are promoting pedophile acharya lovers like Hari Sauri. Hee hee! Isn't that the worst advert for chanting -- ever! The fallen people who DO NOT chant their rounds are the only people opposing pedophile guru lovers? Well then -- it is best to NEVER CHANT. 

OK that is their idea of giving the chanting a good name! I don't get it at all? The people who help foment molesting and murders are the people giving ISKCON a good name? Really? Did we forget to mention their hero writer's guru Bhavananda was engaged in oral sex with Taxi drivers in the dham, and allegedly with various ISKCON young men. And their program brought in other alleged abusers like Dhanurdar, Nitai Chand, Satadhanya, Bhakti Vidya Purna swami etc. 

I forgot, oral sex with taxi driver messiahs in the dham is their plan to give Krishna a good name. Meanwhile, HKC Jaipur folks said I was bogus for driving a San Francisco taxi, which is the same job Jayananda had, also in San Francisco. So Jayananda is a bogus person for driving a taxi? 

And all that process is how they expect to give Krishna a good name? Did we forget to mention, their writer hero Hari Sauri became the infamous "Prabhupada Kripa Maharaja" -- and many people cited he was among one of the most arrogant, tyrant, narcissistic and cruel leaders -- ever? Never mind, he took no real interest in abuses that were apparently being reported to him.

And thanks to Hari Sauri -- the Govinda's restaurant was then called Gay-vindas. Wow, so much good publicity going on here! Sheesh, sign me up HKC Jaipur! Did I forget to mention, people keep asking me if all these HKC people are -- gays? And has their writing hero Hari Sauri ever helped rectify and explain all this mess, to save Krishna's good name? Nope! He still hangs out with Bhavananda's cheer leader's club even recently in Mayapur.

MUKUNDA DAS / MARK WHITELEY. Then the HKC people were asking people to watch videos on the site of Mukunda das. Right. Why is he important to the HKC Jaipur clan? He is the founder father of the Hitler-anugas, which has a constant stream of complaints sent to me from every Vaishnava camp in the world. The combined Vaishnavas -- worldwide -- all complain that linking Hitler to Krishna is GIVING KRISNA A BAD NAME. 

Wait? I thought we were supposed to be giving Krishna a good name? How does linking Hitler to Krishna give Krishna a good name? I forgot? Forsooth! PADA is not linking Krishna to Hitler, and that is really giving Krishna a bad name! 

HKC Jaipur folks told me Hitler's site is a great program since -- "it is getting lots of hits." Wow, they see a site that promotes Hitler, and they want to make it more popular by giving it free advertising! Ooops, and that is how they are giving Krishna a good name! Sorry, Hitler is about as popular as finding a dog's poop in your sweet rice. Sulochana was very much opposed to us even discussing Hitler in public, he said it would make us look fanatical and foolish, and it has. 

BHAKTA DAS / WILLIAM BENEDICT. 

THEN! The HKC Jaipur folks made a video attacking PADA made with their new shiksha guru, Bhakta das. Wait? Wasn't his designer drugs business (Procaine?) busted by the FBI? Wasn't his "Balarama's Enterprises" connected to the Hare Krishnas in the media? 

Wasn't his story in all over the entire USA's newspapers, "Balarama's designer drugs business busted." I forgot! That is how HKC Jaipur wants to give Lord Balarama a good name! And Sulochana said -- New Vrndavana's crooks were the East Coast distribution center for Bhakta's designer drugs business. Wow. We should use the supporters of New Vrndavana's dubious drug business program as our authority. 

Weren't there also all sorts of horror stories in the media -- at that time -- about the horrible potential ill effects of designer drugs -- being published at the time, such as nervous disorders, spontaneous abortions, madness, even people committing murders -- while taking these horrendous Frankenstein chemical drugs. And this is the type of business the HKC Jaipur thinks is -- giving Krishna a good name? Spontaneous abortions no less? But following Jayananda and driving a taxi is -- a bad form of business. 

THEN! Bhakta das is released on bail and he flees to Thailand, where he is evidently hanging out in Thai bars with Thai prostitutes. And Bhakta even told me he is having sex with these Thai bar girls. And him and Guru Kripa are drinking Vodka and partying etc. OK so he is on the lam from the law, and doing more foolish things.

THEN! Bhakta das flies into Puri, India, and he is arrested for possessing some kind of illegal (child?) porn. And this is ALL OVER the INDIA NEWS PAPERS! I forgot, that is how the HKC Jaipur gives Krishna a good name! Yep, cannot make this stuff up pilgrims!  

THEN! The FBI busts Bhakta out of Puri jail to take him back to the USA -- to try him in court on his drugs business, and the India media folks calls him "The Poppy King" for his drugs business, and they mention his original arrest for illegal porn. Yup! Giving Krishna a good name is what they do at HKC Jaipur!

THEN! Bhakta's business is busted again, and he makes the poor manager take the fall. Again, also in the news media.  

THEN! Bhakta das hooks up with BV Puri Maharaja of the Gaudiya Matha. A nice guy perhaps, but he fails to understand the ritvik issue. And BV Puri is pals with different GBC's gurus, like Gopal Krishna and Radhanath swami. And BV Puri makes a program with a big sign at the entrance of his matha temple advertising a program with "Saint Radhanath." 

Did I forget to mention Radhanath was a huge leader of New Vrndavana which was RAIDED BY THE POLICE and this was in ALL THE NEWSPAPERS, because the leaders there were connected to the MURDER OF SULOCHANA. Wow, the good publicity never ends with these HKC Jaipur folks associates! 

THEN! Bhakta das says we are offending Saint Radhanath. Then, we had to have their program sued for $400,000,000 for mass child abuse, because Saint Radhanath was oppressing the complainers -- like me and Sulochana. But we caused the bad publicity, and not their Saint Radhanath process?

THEN! Bhakta das teams up with Swarupa Hebel to go around complaining about PADA, while glorifying the Gaudiya Matha people -- like Sridhar Maharaja -- who was a big cheer leader of the 11 bogus gurus. Doesn't the HKC Jaipur know that this program is not something we should be connected to?  

THEN! PRAHLAD DAS (Paul coats) sends me a message that he is going to send my photo to his pals, the GBC's violent goondas, to maybe get me assassinated. Then, he does circulate my photo to the GBC's goondas. Wow, these pedophile messiah's lovers club folks know right where to go to get help for their program of having Vaishnavas beaten and assassinated, to defend their pedophile messiah project. Why are HKC people working hand in glove with the pedophile messiah's goondas, at all?

Then Dayalu Nitai says -- Prahlad das is one of our "senior men," which means, I could have reported all of them to the police / FBI for making international terrorist threats from their Jaipur temple location. Of course, I decided to be nice and not get them into hot water, being the nice guy that I am. 

OK I did not want to give Krishna another BAD NEWS MEDIA PUBLCITY STORY, which they self-evidently wanted! They wanted to send people death threats, and they ALREADY know that makes bad media news publicity, but I am the cause of the bad publicity? What! 

Of course Prahlad also says I am making offenses to Sanat, who says he wants to have ISKCON's children "killed, chopped up and fed to dogs in a bloodbath in Dallas," and they sent that statement to the New York Times and Dallas courts. Wow. The good publicity never ends with them does it!   

BHAKTA PETER: Then Bhakta Peter says he cannot see any problem with promoting all this above - mentioned stuff, and he thinks Prahlad is right to be working with these folks, i.e. their favorite pedophile messiah's goonda program folks, which kills people who refuse to worship pedophiles. Nothing wrong with that! 

KAMSAHANTA: Another big HKC Jaipur groupie. Told me to stop working on the BBTI lawsuit, the molesting issue, and the poison issue in 1997. Why? He was going to work out a deal with Jayapataka and Hrdayananda. 

And the first deal he worked out? PADA needs to take a vacation in the Caribbean and quit writing, and the GBC will pay for my travel and vacation expense. OK I would have been disappeared forever if I had taken up their deal. I would have gone to the Caribbean -- and never would have been heard from ever again. Ever! He still says my work is the worst thing that ever happened to ISKCON. His bogus deal making turned out to be a big bluff, he never accomplished any deal. 

Question? How can we "work out a deal" with the SAME regime that is banning, beating, molesting suing and assassinating Vaishnavas? He said we need to give the GBC guru guys "a face saving off ramp." Make nicey nice! Yep, let us make them look good! Wait! We need to make the people who give ISKCON a bad name -- a good name? Hee hee.

Looks to me like these people are fighting their own shadow. Let us get rid of PADA, who is saving children from abuse and suicide, and he is encouraging people to worship Srila Prabhupada, and let us give the people creating the abuse and suicide process, and worship of pedophile messiahs process, a face saving off ramp of re-emergence as the saviors of the Jagat. 

This is not going to work dudes! Even if I wanted to help them promote the pedophiles as gurus process -- as / ritviks / Saint Radhanath / or whatever process, even I could not polish up this situation to be publicly acceptable. And that is why Chanakhya Pandit says, "No matter how many times you wash an a**hole, it never becomes a face." I need to give these molester messiah's people -- a face saving off ramp? Hee hee. Anyway, this is a brief description of our history. 

In sum, it seems -- they STILL sympathize with parts or all of the molester messiah's project. And that is why they went to war with PADA. They wanted this war, and they got exactly what they desired. NOW YOU KNOW WHY ISKCON IS IN SUCH A MESS, these type people have defended the mess makers, and resisted any effort to clean it up. ys pd

Same as GBC people, trying to cover up the abuse problem ...

Southern Baptists Face DOJ Investigation

 Southern Baptists say denomination faces DOJ investigation | AP News

PADA: Yep, someone is not cooperating, so it needs criminal justice oversight. ys pd

BA: THIS KIND OF ABUSE AND COVER-UP IS THE SAME IN PATRIARCHAL RELIGIOUS INSTITUTIONS WORLD-WIDE. AS LONG AS SEXIST ABUSIVE MEN HAVE POSITIONS OF POWER IN RELIGIOUS INSTITUTIONS, THIS WILL CONTINUE TO GO ON.

ONLY AFTER BEING EXPOSED AND 'BUSTED', SOME OF THE SBC LEADERSHIP OFFERS THIS:

"While we continue to grieve and lament past mistakes related to sexual abuse, ..."
"MISTAKES" ???

(CNN)The Department of Justice has launched an investigation into the Southern Baptist Convention and its entities on the heels of an explosive report that detailed the mishandling of allegations of sexual abuse by church leaders, the SBC said in a statement Friday.

The report in May by a third-party firm, Guidepost Solutions, also said church leaders intimidated victims and their advocates and resisted attempts at reform over the course of two decades.

"Survivors and others who reported abuse were ignored, disbelieved, or met with the constant refrain that the SBC could take no action," the report found, "even if it meant that convicted molesters continued in ministry with no notice or warning to their current church or congregation."

The SBC is the largest Protestant denomination in the United States, with an estimated 14 million members across more than 47,000 churches.

In its statement Friday, the SBC Executive Committee said it had been recently made aware of the DOJ investigation and that it would fully cooperate.
"While we continue to grieve and lament past mistakes related to sexual abuse, current leaders across the SBC have demonstrated a firm conviction to address those issues of the past and are implementing measures to ensure they are never repeated in the future," the statement said."

Prayers for Jaggadhatri Devi Dasi (Or Practical Help)


Srila Prabhupada says that the administration
that does not care for its elderly citizens
has to be punished by Yamaraja.


=================================

Prayers for Jaggadhatri Devi Dasi, Srila Prabhupada's disciple!

Jaggadhatri Devi Dasi / Jean Prem. 

=================================

Raghunath das: Mata was 194 pounds 6 months ago. 74 pounds 3 weeks ago and 73 pounds last week. She has maybe 3 pounds left at most. I’m fairly confident this could be turned around with the proper resources and so extend the offer to any 3rd parties that maybe interested to help in these regards. These are her last days. Whatever you may ever have considered offering by way of words, deeds or money, this is the last window for it.

One of several such projects would be to also finalize her biography into a book and a video tribute. They would cost $3,000 to $5,000.

Any additional health care upgrades would include regular massage, acupuncture, superfood smoothies, among other such services (if there was any interest or resources for these). My experience with her leaves me thinking it could well make the difference in her health. I consider this because she is making the effort to carry on and so offer to do my best to honor her wishes.

I've been taking care of Mata since 2017, single-handedly. For the most part, no help from other family -- or the hundreds of devotees and such friends -- and the dozens that have talked of Mata as their own kin. About a dozen of them are multi-millionaires - 5 of whom are worth more than $5 million each. As of today, none have offered help of any kind and Mata, of course, didn’t think to ask until just a year or so ago.

No response from any of her heroes – the list of old luminaries of her devotional career that she so adored, served and in several cases, made millions for their temple. I sent out a request for $3,500 portable oxygen tank and got back about $1,500 in donations. Not enough to buy it so never dared to try a fundraise for her again. 

If you can’t complete the purchase or purpose of the fundraiser, it is treated as a fraud and so without the resources of my own to guarantee the completion of these projects, I never tried to fund raise again.

This has left Mata confined to whatever I have been able to provide for the both of us, but had to so without leaving her side these last 6 years. I’ve struggled through extreme hardships to cover the care and finances for the both of us while in recovery of the knife attack in 2016 when I was stabbed 25 times with 40 cuts. 2 years later, my nose crushed in by a homeless man while stomping my head – head trauma for years after.

It is through this slow and gruesome recovery process that I have maintained this house, Mata and myself – with no gov’t assistance. Yes, test of my very best at all levels, but still managed to maintain some simple sadhan and complete 5 more books of the Raghu-nomics series, launch 2 campaigns for political office, plus a new political party and now, a new business venture as well.

The toll has been taken at the expense of other life options from lost for family and career opportunities, to financial development and then how that translates for health of mind, body and spirit – spiritual life.

During this half decade, I was able to muster about $200,000 from those of my life savings, a settlement and dear friends and family. This has paid off handsomely. The house is now worth about $550,000 with a mortgage of just $150,000 = just $700 a month. 

We have $400,000 worth equity – 80%.

As such, I was going to refinance and take a $50,000 loan out that would have allowed us to convert the house over into a Bed & Breakfast. The going rate for a 5 bedroom, 2 kitchen and 2 bathroom B&B starts at about $300 a day = $6,000 to $10,000 a month. We would have been set financially for life – for us both.

Unfortunately, an Indian fellow from Canada married Mata and secretly transferred the house out of trust and over into his name. He offered to transfer it to an LLC to formalize the B&B biz, but transferred it to himself instead.

A somewhat simple court case would allow us to retake it, for judges don’t like such elderly abuse. As of right now, there are no funds to take this to court. It would run between $5k to $20k. However, happy to provide equity stake in the house – if we win, or use my other property for such consideration.

Without it, there goes all of my lifesavings and work of the last half decade, along with Mata’s own legacy of the last 35 years that she has lived here. This has been crushing to her, but most of all, it has removed the resources we were both counting on to tend to her in these final days as well as my own. The equity from the home would have allowed her all the money for the very best care.

If there is any interest to help with either Mata’s care, legacy projects such as the book and or video, or with this court case, let me know. For now, falling behind and looking at the end of our financial plank. If there are those that wish to step in to help on this last leg Mata’s care or this dying wish to recover the house, there is a small window remaining to do so.

As a final note, Joe in the picture is a very dear friend, not Mata's caregiver. He was visiting and so they had a wonderful reunion. I'm her caregiver. I"ve gotten a number of letters asking why I was not tending to Mata myself. I am and to my surprise, have added years to her life.

[PADA: Sheesh! No response from any of her heroes. This does not look good for a spiritual society -- to have its seniors and elders run into such dire situations. If anyone can help here -- especially a wealthy patron type -- the time to do so is -- right away. I am very sad to see so many Vaishnavas hit their golden years in such very difficult struggling situations. 

I know that many devotees like to send thoughts and prayers, but more is required for these type of situations. And more harder to digest is the fact that many of the leaders are now living in luxury conditions with opulent dwellings, servants, all health care expenses taken care of etc. while the people who built the society (and / or their children) are generally neglected. 

Not looking good on the one hand, certainly not pleasing to Krishna on the other. Reminds me of a saying I kept hearing in my Church when I was a kid, "Those who give no mercy -- shall receive none." 

Meanwhile another senior Prabhupada devotee has been actually thinking of ending his own life due to various problems all combining at his late stage of life. Not good at all pilgrims! We predicted this type of outcome many years ago, and it is really sad to see our predictions coming to pass. Anyway, it is what it is, and we are hopefully going to do better for our next devotee generation -- who will (again hopefully) learn from the mistakes we made in ours.

A Prayer From Ukraine Devotee


Goddess Kali Represents Krishna
to manage the material universe

BEAUTIFUL REPRESENTATIVE OF THE KING OF THE UNIVERSE

The One God Emperor of all the Worlds, Lord Krishna-Vishnu-Narayana, is first and foremost the Lord and Protector of the kingdom of God.

But for those living beings who want to exhibit extra independence which ultimately harms them, the Lord God creates the material universe. For those living beings who have not yet expired good karma, until time, their lives are calm, pleasant and good. 

But those people whose good karma has expired suffer in the material world and sometimes their suffering is so great and painful that they do not want to live at all. For example, I also belong to such people who, in addition to physical suffering from diseases, are also tormented by fascist aggressors and terrorists from the Russian Federation, who every day for more than 5 months, have been firing at our peaceful city with artillery, at beating ordinary people and destroying their homes.

But the Supreme Lord has not forgotten even about us. He has given us protective prayers and mantras by which, by calling upon Him, we can escape from misery and cruel death from aggressive manic sadistic killers who wear the form of soldiers and officers of the Russian army.

Also, the Supreme Lord sent His wonderful envoy, goddess Parvati-Durga, to help the devout servants of the One God and protect them from dangers. Being the full Emanation of the Eternal Divine Spouse of the Supreme Lord, Srimati Radharani, She is also the source of goodness, beauty and compassion in the material universe.

HOLY SAGE SRILA PRABHUPADA SAID:

The Supreme Lord always seeks to return a living being to the spiritual world, but a living being endowed with a certain share of independence stubbornly turns away from the spiritual light. It is this abuse that is the cause of the desperate struggle that a living being wages in the material world...

Therefore, intelligent people who believe in Paramatma, the Supreme Personality of Godhead embark on the path that leads to eternal life in knowledge and bliss.

(Excerpt from Srila Prabhupada's commentary on the 23rd text of chapter 13 "Bhagavad-Gita as It Is").

[PADA: Very nice prayers here. Yes, Krishna is everywhere and He should be our object of worship even when we are being shelled and bombed by our enemy. Wherever we are, in heaven or hell, we have to worship the Lord in whatever circumstances we are in. Very nice!

Someone sent me an "Amnesty International Report," saying that the Ukraine army should not be embedded in the cities. The defending army should stay outside the cities in an army barracks. Fine. 

OK, suppose San Francisco is attacked -- and the invading enemy is taking over parts of the city. The USA army should not enter the city, but stay outside. OK that gives the invaders a green light to rob, rape, bomb and kill with no restrictions. I have no idea how the invaders -- who are embedded in the city -- can be routed out -- by the defenders staying outside of the city. 

Yep. The USA army should not enter San Francisco, but stay safely outside in the city's army barracks. Ummm, there are no Army barracks facilities here. We have no army barracks anywhere around, and neither do most Ukraine villages and cities. 

In other words, Amnesty International has no clue how city warfare has been taking place for the past 5,000 years. The defenders of the city have to embed in the city, or the invaders run rampant with no restrictions. And then the citizens are robbed, raped, and killed with no resistance. 

Is that the plan? We should allow the citizens to be robbed, raped, tortured and murdered, while the army spends their time busily constructing a barracks outside the city. Who came up with this plan? The stooges of the invaders? 

OK I have to admit, I am not an expert on military strategy. However, if the army is busy building a barracks outside the city, while the citizens are being over-run by the invaders, that seems like advice for the defenders to stay OUT of the city. That is clearly in favor of -- the invaders -- and not the defenders. 

Sorry, if someone invades San Francisco, I am going to find some sort of weapon and defend myself inside my own city, and I am not going to start building a barracks outside the city to hang out there in so-called safety. Apart from that, hanging out in the barracks outside the city makes me a prime target for aerial attacks. OK that sounds suicidal to me. Where do they find these military experts? 

And this devotee wanted me to publish their report -- evidently without me making comments? Hee hee. Sorry, if you are attacked, you can defend yourself, and that is the Vedic principle. Anyway, now the invaders are getting bombs planted in their cars, their food is being poisoned, their bridges, highways, trains and all sorts of vehicles are being destroyed every day, and that is because the defenders are embedded where the attackers are. 

That is how wars have been fought for centuries. It is not going to change now because someone says the armies first of all have to build barracks outside the cities to house themselves before they can engage the invaders. This is Kali Yuga, the wars will be conducted in the cities. Sorry, that is the path of this era. It is not going to change by us waving our hands in the air and wishing it will change. 

And if the war turns to full scale shooting huge powerful missiles -- the first places to be hit will be -- cities. They won't bother with the barracks outside the city. In sum, I am amazed at the bone headed people we have posing as military experts, just as I am amazed that the defenders of pedophile worship are considered as advanced devotees in ISKCON. The most ignorant people on a certain topic become the experts. OK, in Kali Yuga. 

That being said! All glories to Mother Durga Devi and her bewildering potencies. She has got me fooled most of the time! Or maybe all of the time, who knows? But she is the powerful devotee of Krishna who manages this world. And therefore we should pray to her for help -- getting deliverance from her illusion potency. And there are examples of the gopis and others praying to Goddess Durga for help to get them to Krishna. That is good advice.

Mahatma Das / Gaura Govinda Maharaja / ISKCON Doomed?

 Mahatma's Unknown Guru Species! 

krishna1008: Bogus ISKCON leaders discover more unknown guru species!


PADA: OK first of all -- Mahatma's crew declares that their illicit sex with men, women and children gurus; and drug addicts, drunks, porno swamis, criminals etc. pals -- are God's successors, pure devotees, acharyas, parampara members and sum total of the demigods gurus. Not only that, they say their various deviant gurus -- including their homosexual and pedophile pals -- are fully equals to Jesus, diksha gurus, who can absorb the sins of others. 

Then, after Mahatma's party's alleged "Jesus-like gurus" start to get sick, fall down, go insane, die prematurely, or drown in an ocean of crimes and scandals, his party argues -- their alleged Jesus "took too many sins" -- which is why they are suffering ill results. Ooops! Where did they get their idea that homosexuals / pedophiles and / or deviants are equals to Jesus and can absorb sins like Jesus? Saint Beelzebub told them that? 

And when did Srila Prabhupada say we conditioned souls can act in the capacity of another Jesus, and absorb other's sins? OK he never said that. Rather, he said we are not qualified to absorb the sins of others.

Then, after the fact, or really after most of Mahatma's over 100 alleged "Jesus like messiahs" falls down and creates massive scandals, lawsuits, bad publicity, mass child molesting, assorted beatings, crimes and murders, then -- he starts to wonder -- if any of them are pure. We declared that the hospital janitor can do the job of brain surgeon, now we have to ask -- is the janitor qualified to do the surgery?

"We ISKCON leaders said our guru team is comprised of pure devotees, in fact we insisted on it. And then we started our process of banning, beating, suing, lawsuits, and maybe even murders of dissenters, but maybe we should have originally asked in 1978, 'are any of them pure devotees'?" 

Why didn't Mahatma and his pals ask that question -- before -- they rubber stamped their deviant / criminal / homosexual and / or pedophile pals as pure devotees / gurus / acharyas etc. from square one? Are any of them pure devotees? Well since most of them created a homosexual and pedophile guru system, a system that bans, beats, molests, sues and kills vaishnavas, we would have to say -- nope -- this is not the result of association with pure devotees.  


GIVE HIM A BAD NAME AND KILL HIM

We often tell the story of the wolf and the lamb. “Somehow or other give him a bad name and kill him.”

A wolf was drinking water from a river at the same time as an innocent lamb. The wolf thought, “Somehow or other I must devour that lamb.” The wolf said, “Hey! Don’t you know? Can’t you see that I am drinking water here? Why are you making the water muddy for me? I shall kill you.”

The lamb said, “Oh sir, you are drinking water upstream and I am drinking water downstream. How is it that I am making the water muddy for you?”

“Why did you call me bad names one year ago?”

“Oh sir, I am only three months old. How is it that I called you bad names one year ago?”

“Your mother must have done so. Anyway, I will kill you.”

This is the story of the wolf and the lamb and how all these concocted stories are going around. It illustrates how hatred, speaking ill, and concocting stories arise from intolerance or enviousness. 

You may say, “This devotee is not chanting his rounds! He is not following the regulative principles! He has become a vaiṣṇava, but now he is engaged in illegal and evil activities! 

[PADA: There you have it. If the GBC is engaged in a process of contrived orchestrated banning, beating, molesting, suing and assassinations of vaishnavas -- and who knows what other evil and illegal actions, don't protest! Why should you defend women, children, brahmanas and cows when they are being victimized? Allow the floodgates of evil crimes to overtake ISKCON. Why not?]

"If I remain silent and don’t speak about it then I am giving him the opportunity to commit more and more evil activities! I will be indirectly supporting him, just as if I would say, ‘Yes, do it!’ So in order to do good to him I shall speak to him.”

Now if one subtly analyses such things one can understand that you are simply finding fault with that devotee. But are you perfect yourself? Are there no defects in you? The saying is there, a sieve has many holes and a needle has only one hole. The sieve says, “Oh needle, there is a hole in your back.” 

The needle replies, “You have so many holes. I have only one hole.” But the sieve criticizes the needle. So, one who criticizes should understand whether he himself is perfect or not. Are there no defects in me?” Only if someone is perfect can he find fault with others.

[Srila Gour Govinda Swami Mahārāja]

[PADA: OK but even karmis know that worship of illicit sex deviants is bogus and they won't allow that in their society. That makes the karmis like a sieve ...  making offensive criticism. No, that means the karmis want to regulate their society so that people are only worshiping a pure devotee like Jesus, and not worshiping various pedophiles, drug addicts, porno swamis, deviants, and crooks. Notice that GGM knows that evil crimes are going on among his messiahs, and he does not want us to challenge them.]   

G DASA: The leading ISKCON devotees may think they are beyond normative ethical standards, which insists on ZERO tolerance of any abuse of a child. But they are not. ISKCON as an institution should strive not to avoid ethical protocols, but to be truly emblematic of them!

This kind of antinomian attitude that leading devotees take, that somehow we Krishna Bhaktas are simply exempt from normative ethical principles, will be the doom of ISKCON.

M DASA: I fully agree.

[PADA: Correct. A society that worships illicit sex with men, women and children messiahs is doomed. It won't stand the test of time.]

Saragrahi Vaishnavi's Son Needs Urgent Assistance

krishna1008: Saragrahi Vaishnavi Has Departed

[PADA: It appears this "fund me" is still functioning. Anyway pilgrims, this is not a good sign -- if a young devotee mother departs -- and there are evidently little or no resources for her teen aged son. If anyone has a fix here, it is needed and soon. 

These folks need a somewhat permanent shelter -- and sending a few dollars here and there is good -- but only a temporary fix. I know of a number of ex-ISKCON youth who ended up in dire economic and housing conditions, lets hope that will not happen in this case.

krishna1008: Lord Balarama's Appearance

Sri Balaram Purnima 2022

*The Appearance Day of Lord Balarama*

The 12th of August 2022 marks the Appearance Day of Lord Balarama, the elder brother of Lord Sri Krishna, and is celebrated on the full moon day of Shravana (August), also known as Balaram Jayanti and Balaram Purnima. Lord Balaram appeared as the son of Rohini and Vasudeva. He is also known as Baladeva and Sankarshana. He gives us the required spiritual strength to cross over the hurdles in our journey of self-realization.

*The Form of Lord Balaram*

Lord Balaram is sixteen years old and has a fair complexion the color of crystal. He wears blue garments and a garland of forest flowers. His hair is tied in a graceful topknot. Earrings adorn His ears and His neck is splendidly decorated with strings of jewels and wears armlets and bracelets. Balaram is graceful and has very strong arms and His feet are decorated with jeweled anklets.

The splendor of Lord Balaram’s transcendental form eclipses many millions of glistening rising moons, and the slightest scent of His boundless strength is sufficient to destroy many armies of demons. Although He knows the supernatural power of His younger brother, Krishna, still, out of love for Him, He never leaves Krishna alone in the forest even for a moment. Balarama is Sri Krishna’s dearest friend and is a great reservoir of the nectar mellows of many kinds of transcendental pastimes.

*The Mercy of Lord Balaram*

Lord Balaram exemplifies the service attitude to Krishna. His only mission is to please Krishna by rendering service to Him, whether it is in the creation of the material worlds, maintaining the spiritual world or as His personal paraphernalia.
Lord Balaram is the eternal companion of Sri Krishna. He came as Lakshmana with Rama and later as Nityananda Prabhu with Caitanya Mahaprabhu. He is the original spiritual master, and anyone desiring to make spiritual progress must first get the mercy of Lord Balarama.

Balarāma means guru-tattva. Balarāma represents guru. Yasya prasādād bhagavat-prasādaḥ. If we want to understand Caitanya Mahāprabhu, if we want to understand Kṛṣṇa, then we must take shelter of Balarāma. Nāyam ātmā bala-hinena labhyaḥ. This bala-hinena labhyaḥ, this Vedic injunction, means “Without the mercy of Balarāma you cannot understand, you cannot realize your spiritual identification. So that Balarāma comes as Nityānanda Prabhu. Balarāma hailā nitāi. Therefore we must take shelter of Balarāma.

Fox Guarding the BBT Hen House (Garuda dasa)

[PADA: Most people lost confidence in the BBT when they announced that Srila Prabhupada is their "writer for hire." At the same time, where were most of the devotees when they should have all united to complain about these unauthorized changes? 

As one devotee said, "If someone was re-writing the Bible and trying to distribute their bogus changed Bible inside the church, everyone in the church would have complained and stopped that. Moreover, the writers of the changed Bible would never be accepted in the church, they would be evicted and banned." Yup! ys pd]

THE FOX IS GUARDING THE HEN HOUSE!!!

MY DEAR VAISHNAVA SISTERS AND BROTHERS,

I offer all of you my heartfelt praṇāmas. Jaya Śrīla Prabhupāda! Śrī Balarāma's Pūrṇimā Appearance Day kī jaya!!!!

Only a short posting from me today, because sometime next week I will specially announce the culmination of the last five years' work here, as it will have gone all over the world.

From the 2020 announced beginnings of the formation of the ERP (Editorial Review Panel) by the BBTII on ISKCON News, they offer us exactly what they're doing:

"Dravida dasa, an editor of Srila Prabhupada’s books for the past forty years, serves as a consultant in the RRP’s establishment of its Principles and Guidelines. As a member of the BBT Editorial Board, Dravida will interface with the RRP regarding revisions it may want to remove."

Please note that Dravida will NOT be interfacing with ERP regarding any revisions it may want to KEEP!

In other words, "the fox is guarding the hen house!" Dravida, bless his soul, is watching over the ERP's work to make sure that the ERP does NOT remove any Jayadvaita edits that he feels are good, justifiable, etc., unless he gives the authority to do so. He is the authority in the BBTII to do this, definitely a kind of surrogate Jayadvaita.

So? If you're expecting some real scholarly results from the "scholars" on the powerless consultative/advisory panel, you're not likely to find that. And so far, that has proven to be the case with their proud announcements, such as the extraordinary research and findings on the phrase, "The Blessed Lord."

Here are the ISKCON devotees who are members of the ERP:

(1) Bhakti Vijnana Goswami, PhD (in chemistry, or physics, not sure)

(2) Bhanu Swami

(3) Kalachandji Das / Carl Herzog, PhD (former English professor)

(4) Keshava Bharati Swami

(5) Krishna Kshetra Swami / Kenneth Valpey, PhD (author in Religion)

(6) Krishna Rupa Dasi

(7) Radhika Ramana Das / Ravi Gupta, PhD (professor and author in Religion)

Next week, again, I will be delighted to announce the culmination of five years' work in this private group.

Many of you have asked me how you can help . . . there are some very simple, easy ways you will be able to do so, starting next week.

I thank all of you, from the bottom of my heart, for all your support and encouragement, and your many meaningful and informative contributions made here.

Dāso 'smi premni,

Dhamesvara Studios CGI Devotional Art Site

 https://dhamesvara-studio.org/?

PADA: Has some black and white print out coloring pages for children. Good idea, making modern style Krishna arts / movies using computer tech. 

Some people wrote to tell me how the Little Krishna CGI computerized series is bogus for using computerized images of Krishna's Leela. OK first of all these videos were made for little children, and the kids will watch these leelas -- and not be very interested in adult versions of these leelas, as we have seen ourselves with little children. Next, these Little Krishna series have been viewed millions and millions of times on youtube, India TV etc. while no one else did any better? 

Anyway, let's hope more folks can make some good Krishna art works. Kids who are interested in computer art could maybe hone their skills with help from this group. 

Then again, some people have severely criticized my computer art works / whacky music videos / as well. Cannot please em all. Hee hee. ys pd

Child Advocate's Children Banned from ISKCON School

PADA: A devotee mother has been told her children won't be allowed at an ISKCON children's school, evidently because -- she is a vocal advocate for children. She has made a campaign to remove a molester from the guru post and other posts of authority in ISKCON, and they are evidently targeting her as a trouble maker. 

This is a big part of the problem. It seems anyone who advocates for children is targeted for shunning, banning, removing, and of course this mother has got some threatening messages implying she will meet violence. Thus, it looks very cult-like to an outside observer. Unless ISKCON welcomes these children advocates and bans the molesters and / or their molester gurus, this problem will not be resolved. 

She is going to place her kids in the regular -- government managed -- "karmi" school system and to be honest, we think that is the best option at the present time. If her kids are in the ISKCON school -- they might be trained to believe that God's successors / acharyas / Jesus - like saints / gurus / parampara members are often engaged in illicit sex and drugs, and / or that the parampara from God is an assortment of porno swamis, drunks and criminals. 

That is not a good way to train children. Even the karmi schools have a much higher standard than this lot. It shows that in all this time, sectors of ISKCON are still punishing child welfare advocates, and their children.

Los Angeles Rathayatra 2022 / VIDEO

[PADA: The ISKCON temples are empty but lots of people come out of the wood work for some festivals. That also happened after 1936 in the Gaudiya Matha. The temples were empty, sometimes two or three old men living there, but the mass of devotees would appear for some special festivals. 

That means, the mass of devotees cannot participate in bogus guru's temples, but they still want to worship Krishna. OK. These bogus gurus are blocking the mass of people from participating in the day to day temple's programs. The mass of devotees have to boycott the bogus guru's programs, whether 1936 or now. ys pd]

Olivia Newton John / Let Go -- Let God / VIDEO



Devarsi Dasa: Praying for another dear friend today . . . dear Radhe Shyam, please bless Olivia Newton-John, shower her with Your love, and keep her close to You.

Olivia is a special soul who brought love and light, song and laughter, and mantra music to millions of people. Years ago when we spent time together in Florida and Germany, California and Arizona, she was always awesome, down to earth, kind and generous. Her star status never got in the way of her being real, being kind, and hanging out with the rest of us. 

Many occasions I got to share prasada and kirtan with Olivia, Bada Hari's CDs and my children's books. Olivia wrote songs about the rainforests, I wrote books. We worked together to bring awareness to protecting the plants, the animals, and the children of the Amazon rainforest and sharing the rainforest's botanical gifts through Amazon Herb Co. 

Much love to you dear friend. Auf Wiedersehen. Hare Krishna! 

"Let Go Let God" is a song about finding strength through surrender, something Olivia Newton-John did after being diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992. Her cancer returned in 2017 and again in 2020, but she remained resolute, "I see it as my life's journey. It gave me purpose and intention and taught me a lot about compassion."

[PADA: May Krishna bless this gentle and kind soul. Let go -- let God. Indeed! ys pd]




KD: I can't help but get shivers when I read the lyrics she left us with. Upon the news yesterday of sweet music goddess Olivia Newton John leaving the planet, I revisit her lyrics, and I have goose bumps. She could not have left us with better guiding words of love and compassion and warmth. She was a beautiful human being, I pay my respects to her and hope her journey on is filled with devotion and love, as she gave on this planet. 

… Come take my hand

You should know me
I've always been in your mind
You know I will be kind

I'll be guiding you

… Building your dream has to start now
There's no other road to take
You won't make a mistake

I'll be guiding you

You have to believe we are magic

… Nothin' can stand in our way
You have to believe we are magic
Don't let your aim ever stray
And if all your hopes survive
Destiny will arrive
I'll bring all your dreams alive
For you

I'll bring all your dreams alive
… For you

From where I stand, you are home free
The planets align so rare
There's promise in the air

And I'm guiding you

… Through every turn I'll be near you
I'll come anytime you call
I'll catch you when you fall

I'll be guiding you

… You have to believe we are magic
Nothin' can stand in our way
You have to believe we are magic
Don't let your aim ever stray
And if all your hopes survive
Destiny will arrive
I'll bring all your dreams alive
For you
I'll bring all your dreams alive
For you

You have to believe we are magic
Nothin' can stand in our way
You have to believe we are magic
Don't let your aim ever stray
And if all your hopes survive
Destiny will arrive
I'll bring all your dreams alive
For you

I'll bring all your dreams alive
For you
