The Mahalakshmi temple, located on a sprawling 100 acres of land at Sripuram, near Vellore, about 125 km from Chennai( TAMIL NADU_ SOUTH INDIA), has been constructed by Vellore-based Sri Narayani Peetam, headed by spiritual leader Sri Sakthi Amma.

*An Arab needed a heart transplant, but prior to the surgery the doctors needed to store his blood in case the need arises.

Because the gentleman had a rare type of blood, it couldn't be found locally.

So the call went out to a number of countries. Finally, a Jew was located who had similar type of blood.

The Jew willingly donated his blood for the Arab.

After the surgery, the Arab sent the Jew as appreciation for giving his blood, a new Rolls, diamonds, lapis lazuli jewellery, and a million US dollars.

Unfortunately, the Arab had to go through a corrective surgery once again. His doctor telephoned the Jew who was more than happy to donate his blood again.

After the second surgery, the Arab sent the Jew a thank you card and a jar of Almond Roca sweets.

The Jew was shocked to see that the Arab this time did not reciprocate as he had anticipated.

He phoned the Arab and asked him why he had expressed his appreciation in not so generous manner.

The Arab replied "Habibi, now I have Jewish blood

Gazing Upon Goodness-

The Importance Of Seeing The Good In All

Our perception shapes the lives we lead because the universe adjusts itself almost instantly to our expectations.

When we look for negativity, we are bound to come across it in abundance. Conversely, we create positive energy when we endeavor to see the goodness around us.

As easy as it is to criticize the people and situations that frustrate or hurt us, we do ourselves a disservice in the process. It is important to see the good in all as there are blessings hiding in every aspect of our outer-world reality, and the potential for grace exists in all human beings.

When our lives are flooded with challenges, grief, and pain, we may be tempted to believe that some individuals or incidents are simply bad. But if we look for the good in all, good reveals itself to us, easing our doubts and reminding us that the universe is a place of balance.

There is a perceptible energetic shift that takes place when we choose to see the good in all.

The unnecessary tension that came into being when we dwelled on negativity fades away and is replaced by sympathetic tolerance.

We can forgive those that have wronged us because we recognize in them traits we admire, and we may even discover that we can bring out the good in one another.

Though loss still grieves us, we recognize the beginning of a new phase of existence that abounds with fresh opportunities.

Each new challenge becomes another chance to prove ourselves, and we learn to show great patience in the face of difficulty.

There are few pleasures greater than gazing outward and seeing beauty, wisdom, and harmony.

These are the attributes of the universe that help us to cope when we encounter their opposing forces.

Since you create your reality, you make your world a better place each time you acknowledge the good in your circumstances and in the people you encounter.

As you draw attention to the positive aspects of the world around you, your understanding of the affirmative nature of all existence will grow. There are few lessons you will learn in this life that will prove as instrumental to your happiness and satisfaction.

In appreciating the all pervasive goodness that exists in the universe, you internalize it, making it a lasting part of your life.

Subject: Akshaya Patra

HUBLI: Tucked behind the ISCKON temple away from eyeshot, amidst the picturesque green hills of Raypur, lies Akshaya Patra Kitchen, arguably the largest kitchen in India and perhaps, the world.

While the record books have largely remained silent about it, it is indeed a spectacular feat of modern science, with nearly 13 tonnes of rice, 5 tonnes of raw vegetables and 4 tonnes of dal utilised daily to provide meals for 1.8 lakh children in 763 schools covering Hubli, Dharwad, Kalghatagi and Kundgol taluks of the district.

It resembles a factory with a three storeyed building spread across an area of 2.5 acres, having steam boilers, steel cauldrons, exhaust systems, conveyor system and high speed cutting machines along with workers in uniform with gloves and caps.

The kitchen has been built as per the ISO 22000 standards which is an international food safety management standard.

The rice procured from the Food Corporation of India, is first passed through the Rice Cleaning Unit(RCU) to remove iron particles using magnets, and then through a series of sieves to filter the rice, and finally through a destoner to remove tiny rocks.

The RCU, which also used to clean tur dal, on a typical day, can empty 110 bags of rice per hour, each weighing 50 kgs. After the cleaning operations, the grains are then stored in two large ?silos -the specially designed containers imported from Spain to protect the grains from pests.

They can store about 150 tonnes of rice, i.e. a 15-day worth of stock. Cooking operation works in a topdown fashion, with the washing and cutting taking place on the second floor, cooking on the first floor and the packing on the ground floor.

On the second floor, rice from the silos in batches of 30 kgs is washed by workers. He further points that on the same floor, vegetables stored in the cold room are chopped and grated using high speed cutting machines.

The first floor consists of 10 vessels to cook rice using steam generated from boilers and another 8 vessels to cook sambar. Around 1.25 tonnes of rice can be cooked in 15 minutes and 1200 litres of sambar in 45 minutes.

The cooked rice and sambar is then passed to the ground floor via chutes where they are stored in stainless steel containers specially designed to retain heat upto a maximum of six hours.

The introduction of the mid-day meal schemes has made an impact in the region in terms of enrollment ratios.

A study conducted by A C Nielsen shows that average enrolment in class V has increased by 31 per cent after the programme was initiated.

Subject: What do teachers make?

The dinner guests were sitting around the table discussing life. One man, a CEO, decided to explain the problem with education. He argued, "What's a kid going to learn from someone who decided his best option in life was to become a teacher?"

He reminded the other dinner guests what they say about teachers: "Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach."

To stress his point he said to another guest; "You're a teacher, Bonnie. Be honest. What do you make?"

Bonnie, who had a reputation for honesty and frankness replied, "You want to know what I make? (She paused for a second, and then began...)

"Well, I make kids work harder than they ever thought they could

I make a C+ feel like the Congressional Medal of Honor.

I make kids sit through 40 minutes of class time when their parents can't make them sit for 5 without an I Pod, Game Cube or movie rental.

You want to know what I make?" (She paused again and looked at each and every person at the table.)

''I make kids wonder. I make them question.

I make them apologize and mean it.

I make them have respect and take responsibility for their actions.

I teach them to write and then I make them write. Keyboarding isn't everything.

I make them read, read, read.

I make them show all their work in math. They use their God given brain, not the man-made calculator.

I make my students from other countries learn everything they need to know English while preserving their unique cultural identity.

I make my classroom a place where all my students feel safe.

I make my students stand, placing their hand over their heart to say the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag, One Nation Under God, because we live in the United States of America.

Finally, I make them understand that if they use the gifts they were given, work hard, and follow their hearts, they can succeed in life."

(Bonnie paused one last time and then continued.)

"Then, when people try to judge me by what I make, with me knowing money isn't everything, I can hold my head up high and pay no attention because they are ignorant...

You want to know what I make?


What do you make Mr. CEO?"

His jaw dropped, he went silent.

You make a difference!

A highschool teacher decided to honour all of her students by telling themthe difference they each made.

She called each student to the front of the class, one at a time. First she told each of them how they had made a difference to her and the class.

Then she presented each of them with a blue ribbon imprinted with

gold letters, which read, 'Who I Am Makes a Difference.'

Afterwards the teacher decided to do a class project to see what kind of impact recognition would have on a community.

She gave each of the students three more ribbons and instructed them to go out and spread this acknowledgment ceremony.

Then they were to follow up on the results, see who honoured whom and report back to the class in about a week.

One of the boys in the class went to a junior executive in a nearby

company and honoured him for helping him with his career planning. He gave him a blue ribbon and put it on his shirt.

Then he gave him two extra ribbons and said, 'We're doing a class

project on recognition, and we'd like you to go out, find somebody to

honour, give them a blue ribbon, then give them the extra blue ribbon so they can acknowledge a third person to keep this acknowledgment ceremony going.

Then please report back to me and tell me what happened.'

Later that day the junior executive went in to see his boss, who had

been noted, by the way, as being kind of a grouchy fellow.

He sat his boss down and he told him that he deeply admired him for being a creative genius.

The boss seemed very surprised.

The junior executive asked him if he would accept the gift of the blue ribbon and would he give him permission to put it on him.

His surprised boss said, 'Well sure.'

The junior executive took the blue ribbon and placed it right on his boss's jacket above his heart.

As he gave him the last extra ribbon, he said, 'Would

you do me a favour? Would you take this extra ribbon and pass it on by honouring somebody else?

The young boy who first gave me the ribbons is doing a project in school and we want to keep this recognition ceremony going and find out how it affects people.'

That night the boss came home to his 14-year old son and sat him


He said, 'The most incredible thing happened to me today. I was in my office and one of the junior executives came in and told me he admired me and gave me a blue ribbon for being a creative genius. Imagine.

Hethinks I'm creative genius.'

'Then he put this blue ribbon that says, 'Who I Am Makes a

Difference' on my jacket above my heart.

He gave me an extra ribbon and asked me to find somebody else to honour.

As I was driving home tonight, I started thinking about whom I would honour with this ribbon and thought ofyou.

I want to honour you. My days are really hectic and when I come

home I don't pay a lot of attention to you.

Sometimes I scream at you for not getting good enough grades in

school and for your bedroom being a mess, but somehow tonight, I just wanted to sit here and, well, just let you know that you do make a difference to me.

Besides your mother, you are the most important person in my

life. You're a great kid and I love you!'

The startled boy started to sob and sob, and he couldn't stop crying.

His whole body shook.

He looked up at his father and said through his tears, 'I was planning on committing suicide tomorrow, Dad, because I didn't think you loved me.

Now I know you care. This is the happiest day I've known.'

The boss went back to work a changed man.

He was no longer a grouch but made sure to let all his employees know that they made a difference.

The junior executive helped several other young people with career planning and never forgot to let them know that they made a difference in his life - one being the boss' son.

And the young boy and his classmates learned a valuable lesson.

So who you are DOES make a difference and I wanted you to know that.

Just five more minutes

While at the park one day, a woman sat down next to a man on a bench near a playground. "That's my son over there," she said, pointing to a little boy in a red sweater who was gliding down the slide.

"He's a fine looking boy" the man said. "That's my son on the swing in the blue sweater."

Then, looking at his watch, he called to his son.

"What do you say we go, Todd?"

Todd pleaded, "Just five more minutes, Dad. Please?

Just five more minutes."

The man nodded and Todd continued to swing to his heart's content.

Minutes passed and the father stood and called again to his son. "Time to go now?"

Again Todd pleaded, "Five more minutes, Dad. Just five more minutes."

The man smiled and said, "O.K."

"My, you certainly are a patient father," the woman


The man smiled and then said, "My older son Tommy was

killed by a drunk driver last year while he was riding his bike

near here.

I never spent much time with Tommy and now I'd give

anything for just five more minutes with him.

I've vowed not to make the same mistake with Todd.

He thinks he has five more minutes to swing. The truth is, I get Five more minutes to watch him play."

Life is all about making priorities, what are your priorities?

Give someone you love 5 more minutes of your time today.

God is ....... Love is .....

Subject: Hymn #365

A minister was completing a temperance sermon. With great emphasis he said,"If I had all the beer in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river."

With even greater emphasis he said,"And if I had all the wine in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river."

And then finally, shaking his fist in the air, he aaid,

"And if I had all the whiskey in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river."

The sermon completed, he sat down.

The song leader stood up very cautiously and announced sheepishly with a smile, nearly laughing,

"For our closing song, Let us sing Hymn #365, "Shall We Gather at the River."
