Love song that I like:
I would not have the desire to live anymore,
if you were not here;
If I never got your support, I would have
stayed in whirlpool and would not have
found the shore; and even on shore,
the waves would have sunk me, if you were not here.
When I saw you,it appeared to me like the season of
flowers has come; how can I tell what you are to me?
You are the solace and shelter of my life.

Hippocrates, considered as the father of modern medicine,
said,”Let your food be your medicine.”
Honey has hypnotic action in bringing sound sleep, if taken
in dosage of 2 table spoons in a big cupful of water, before
going to bed. Since honey consists of Levulose/fructose,
it is not harmful in diabetes.
Do you know?
Limes are often mistaken with lemons; although limes
and lemons are both citrus fruits and similar in terms
of nutrition, still they have certain differences as well;
lemons are yellow in color whereas limes are green.
Lemons are smaller, less sour and more aromatic
than limes. The Latin name for lemon is Citrus limon.
Limes have more astringent qualities but lemons have
more anti-inflammatory properties.
Also do not confuse lime (citrus fruit) with lime(calcium
Calcium carbonate is different from calcium hydroxide.
There is no formula for what should be written in diary.
Diary of every one is different.In each page, there is
procession of memories. Diary is a collection of quotes
and poems that we like; it is a collection of sweet and
bitter experiences in life; it is a guide of our future plans
in life; there, love blooms as poem; pains and insults also
are recorded briefly or in detail. When we turn over the
pages of diary, we shall come to know about our wrong
decisions in life or the bold steps we had taken while facing
any problems in life. We learn the lessons of life.

History of Larkspur.:The land where downtown Larkspur now
stands was the “King Ranch” before. Charles W. Wright,
bought the property in 1887. His wife , a native of England
mistook Native Lupin for Larkspur and so the town was
named accordingly. The town was incorporated on March 1,
1908. Trees,marshes, creeks, hillsides are components of
Larkspur’s community character and identity.Larkspur is
inhabited by “urban sophisticates”(=people who are both
educated and wealthy). Also it is a city of artists, designers
and media people.
Diary:Often we go to sea shore, since I like beaches
very much. One day, I wrote the name of Shri Rama
in Kannada on the sand near the shore. Someone had
told me that waves come near the name of Rama if
written on sand near the sea shore. But, the waves did
not approach near the name of Rama.Then, my son
asked,”Mom, why the waves did not come near the name?”
Then my husband commented humorously,”The waves
of seashore in America, cannot read Kannada.They
understand only those words that are written in English”
The story that Lord Krishna had 16,108 wives, means that Lord Krishna is the soul, who has control over 16,108 nadis(=blood vessels) or channels of energy in human body that means Krishna is “Jitendriya”(=winner of sense organs) and which is the quality of Purnavatara.(=Full incarnation of God in human form) The 8 prinipal queens of Krishna represent the 7 chakras of the body plus the aura that surrounds them.”Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaaya ” -this shloka/mantra spells that Lord Krishna is the supreme soul pervading the whole universe. We cannot understand Him nearly by our limited senses or logic. His thinking and acts are beyond our comprehension. Do not try to criticize the acts of God. Leave it to God to give you what is best for you. He knows far better than we. So what He gives of His own accord will always be far superior to what we can even think of.Let Him give us as He Wills.
The song about Shri Krishna:
Boy Krishna was the cynosure of all the residents of Vrundavan.Radha was burning with jealousy, thinking why Krishna was the beloved of all.When Krishna used to play the fine music in flute and dance with joy by swaying the body, at the shore of Jamuna river, the women of vrundavan would assemble around him and remain so much absorbed that they even forget their family and themselves. (Remember that all the girls in Vrindavan including Radha, the beloved of Krishna were married in their childhood and hence their attracion towards Krishna was not the polluted and material love,but purely spiritual, as explained by Srila Prabhupada, the founder of ISKCON. Krishna stayed at vrindavan only until he was 10 years old and left for mathura) Such was the magic of Krishna’s “Raas Leela”(aesthetic or divine play/dance of Krishna with His devotees is described as ”Rasa Leela ” by the sage Veda Vyasa).His color was black like the dark clouds of rainy season.Radha was so crazy about charming Krishna that she was ready to leave this world and follow him.
–This song is from the old Hindi film”Miss Mary”(released in 1957)
The singer is Latha Mangeshkar.
Lord Krishna was born at midnight on Ashtami or the eighth day
of second fortnight(dark half or Krishna Paksha) of Hindu
Shravana month according to lunar calendar. He was born
in (the year Visvavasu) 3227 BC (5172years ago from 1945)
according to the Barhaspathyamana. He lived for 125 years
(according to scriptural details and astrological calculations,
the accurate date of birth is July 19th, Wednesday, 3228BC.)and
disappeared on February 18th, 3102 BC. Kaliyuga or the corrupt age
is said to be started since that date.The birth star of Lord Krishna is Rohini.
Ashtami and Rohini star may not be on the same day. If they occur
on the same day then it is called Shri Krishna Jayanthi. If they do not
occur on the same day ,then it is called Janmashtami. In 2012, (being
leap year) there is an Adhika Bhadrapada Masa(excess month-13months
as against normal 12 months) according to Hindu lunar calendar. This extra
month (from August 18 to September 16) is auspicious and dedicated to
Lord Krishna. The concept of Adhika Masa is unique to the traditional
Hindu lunar calendar. This year Shri Krishna Jayanthi falls on 8th day
of Adhika Bhadrapada Masa( on September 8),since ashtami and
birth star Rohini occurs on the same day.

In the vedas, mention is made of the chakra
(spinning wheel of light) system and nadi(pulse)
system, but modern science has had to wait until
now, for the discovery of devices such as Thermal
Imaging Technology,developed by Dr.Thorton Streeter.
He clearly showed the measuring aura images of all
the seven chakras within the body, using modern
sensors and Thermal Imaging Technology. Chakra
system has been used to detect and cure cancer.
Torn chakra has appeared in every cancer patient.
There are 7 major chakras or energy centres in our
body. Each chakra is connected to a different part
of the body and in theory, deals with different

lung cancer with the throat chakra and heart chakra;
breast cancer with the heart chakra; stomach, liver,
intestine and pancreatic cancer with the solar plexus;

Diary:Today we had been to “The Point Reyes
National Seashore” composed of 3 beaches,
namely North Beach, South Beach and Drakes
Beach.The sand is blackish.Drakes Beach is
named after Elizabethan seafarer, Sir Francis
Drake who paid a visit to the area with his
ship, “The Golden Hinde” in 1579.
I saw the sand is mixed with colourful beads
like stones which resembled pearls and gems.
I learnt the names of existing species of wild
life from the literature pasted there for the
viewers.The names listed are-Pacific Gray Whales,
Pacific Harbor Seals, Northern Elephant Seal
and Snowy Plover.The literature contains the
message-“Help spread the world, responsible
wildlife viewing” so that the frightened and
endangered wild lives may not run away leaving
behind their eggs or young ones vulnerable and
exposed to temperature extremes and predators.
