    Srila Prabhupada's Commentarie upon SB.

    Namaste All,

    I have just read this and find it to be wonderfully astute:

    "... The whole system of education is geared to sense gratification, and if a learned man thinks it over, he sees that the children of this age are being intentionally sent to the slaughterhouses of so-called education." ...
    srila prabhupada's commentary upon the Srimad Bhagavatam.

    Text 1.22

    Fresh air for me, as one who lives in a community where the standard philosophy is; one must be more fiendish than ones neighbours, so as to gain the upper hand from them. Seriously, I hear this mantra almost every day.

    So, this makes me smile, as it reminds me of a thought I often have in the local supermarket, I affectionately call it the abattoir; Where customers are considered thieves, simply upon entering, from whence they are herded through a system of control, with aggressive sounding buzzers and flashing warning lights. Muscled security guards frowning upon all who pass before them; As if to give fair warning of their might.
    The stress upon the checkout girls to diminish the cue rapidly, is palpable; it can be seen to spread amongst all those who wait in line, those addressed by them.

    Oh dear, in humanity's relative experience, its bedraggled race; it appears to me that the Rakshasa have found ways to differ their cannibalism.
    Wait, what is that; Do I hear Valmiki starting to stir?

    Tong in cheek, or is it?


    Kind regards.

    If nothing else at least you have to admit that you can not steal anything.

    Namaste brahma jijnasa,

    I did try to find some dignity, so as to steal it back; alas, the shelf was completely bare ...
