I have returned from my trip,  and I am sorry to say,  at the casino,  the Indians scalped us,  without much of a fight from us.  It went back and forth,  but in the end they took $400 of our money into their wampum bag,  LOL.  But we had a lot of fun,  and some good food,  losing the money. 

My wife's cousin and her husband took us on a tour of their city,  including the Thai Buddhist temple that she belongs to,  and I took some great photos.  They have just finished an India-style temple at their compound,  at a cost of 2 million dollars.  I was surprised at this,  becuause they already had a beautiful Thai-style temple,  and I think that style is the most beautiful in the world.  This new India-style temple seems dull and drab,  I am sorry to say.  What a contrast!!  I have posted the photos,  and here is a link to them,  if you are interested:

Re: GoldenMean

Oh that's great. Do enjoy to the fullest savouring casinoeing, making loads of money from the Indians. I was in Thailand two syears ago and I found the country so neat and clean unlike ours. So were the Thai beauties though I didn't understand their language. I have just returned from my sojourn enjoying vacation on mountain tops in Chikamaglur coffee estate in the jungles with plenty of wine and liquor, food and the fine courtesy of a lovely hostess. I ended up spending much more than my budget permitted. Cheers.

So we will see,  if they take my money,  or we take their money.  Either way,  it will be fun.

I am travelling this weekend,  to Fort Worth,  Texas to visit my wife's cousin from Thailand.  So cannot read or comment,  but will resume next week.  Also going to what is supposedly the world's largest casino,  just across the border in Oklahoma.  It is run by Indians  (excuse me,  Native Americans)  (excuse me,  I thought I was a "native American",  too, since 4 generations of my family have been born here).  The noble savages have discovered a great way to get their revenge on the white eyes.....  build casinos and take their money!!  LOL

Re: Re: Aba, brother

'Only' the presentations? Only? :) That is the all, not the only. For without your presentation, there would be nothing. Thank you, you are a guru.

Re: Aba, brother

O my dear Presta didi, I am so glad that you have been able to read and grasp the vastness of so many seemingly impossible problems discussed which any human being encounters, that is why its attraction at all times. To be able to express cogently has always my endeavour and I think I'm slowly succeeding and my tons of thanks are due to you, only the presentations are mine.

Aba, brother

I can only humbly say 'thank you' for this stunningly outstanding presentation. It shall take a few more readings of this series for me grasp fully all of what you have so patiently taught us here. We should strive to attain our higher selves, and one should become aware of how to be achieve our goals. Brilliant and enlightening. Thank you again, dear Aba Bro!

Re: Anib to GoldMine, GM ... that you are

Yes, the interpretations are mine own. A lot of books I have read of Pandits whom I have found useless. Topmost among them is Swami Bhaktivedanta, the founder of ISKCON, the Hare Rama Movement people. Moreover I have tailored these in accordance with what would relate to your specific queries, my friend. And that has been a demanding exercise and I'm glad that you motivated. And now you're starting to be getting into the vortex of things. Thank you, again. Cheers

Amazing post!!  I suspect that this writing is like no other,  if you are translating this epic from the original language,  by yourself.  I do not remember being so impressed and drawn in by the book of the Gita that I read so long ago.  This is very deep and multi-faceted,  like a diamond,  like any epic story should be. I will have to read it and contemplate it more,  to have a worthy comment.

But I will say this for now.  I can understand the detachment of a warrior.  I was once a warrior myself.  In his training,  a warrior learns the most efficient and deadly ways to kill people.  This is true in all cases,  whether the society of the warrior is good or evil.  

But if he is a warrior on the side of goodness,  he is also instilled with righteous moral principles.......  principles that ensure he will only kill enemy combatants who must be killed,  in order to protect the righteous moral principles of his good society,  against the evil moral principles of the predatory society that is attacking it.  To prevent gross and obvious crimes of oppression,  abuse,  slavery,  tyranny, etc.

If a soldier only considers the act of the moment of combat......  the slicing of a person's neck,  the thrust of a sword into the belly,  the launching of arrows into the eye, mouth, belly or back,  the shooting of a person in the head or heart,  the calling in of an air strike that will cause hunks of meat to fly through the air,  no longer recognizable as human bodies.......  then the soldier will be overwhelmed by the horrors of the moment.  

But a warrior on the side of goodness realizes that these horrors must be done,  in order to defeat an evil enemy who commits much greater horrors upon millions or billions of innocent people.  Thus the need for detachment,  and I was completely in that mode of thought,  during my years as a US Army officer.
