A talk by Dr Nick Sutton of the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies Continuing Education Department (ced.ochs.org.uk) delivered at Leicester Friends of the OCHS.
The Red Rock Rishis kirtan group, has made some very tasteful musical arrangements accompanying the Hare Krishna maha mantra. One of the songs from their most recent album is called "Starship Mantra". The music fits the title and the melody is very catchy. The pictures of Prabhupada and Krishna that accompany this music-video just captivate the heart.
Srila Prabhupada once said to a reporter, that there are three ways to travel - by machine, by pigeon, and by mantra. It must have been a bit of a challenge to come up with pictures that would help to give the hearer a real transcendental "oddessy" experience by listening to and chanting along with this "Starship Mantra" song.
So travel by maha mantra, and leave all your worries behind. Hare Krishna. (Text by Nistha Bhakti)
Details are beginning to emerge that the Boston Marathon suspects self-identified as Muslim. Jalon Fowler was on the 21st mile of her third Boston Marathon when the explosions went off last week. “I started to pray that it wasn’t a lunatic who hijacked my religion, my great religion, and did these evil acts,” said Fowler, who is Muslim. “Islam is a religion of peace. It does not promote violence, especially against innocent people.”
