May – September, 2012

JULY, 8th

“Guru and the disciple”was shown. This was one of the Sunday lectures in 2004 of Revered Swami Bhaskaranandaji,at the Vedanta Society of Western Washington,Seattle,USAOn behalf of the society ,I would like to thank Poorni Gopalapillai for donating a computer  to the center. Moreover, Poorni along with her brother-in-law Lavanyan spent enormous time in setting up the sound system, computerized projection etc.

May the blessings of Shri Ramakrishna, Holy Mother and Swamiji  be always with them.

AUGUST 9th, Thursday, is Sri Krishna Janmastami.

Acording to the Bhagavad Gita [Chapter 10,  second verse 34], the attributes of Sri Krishna show his divine Feminine nature[androgynous nature]:

“of female qualities I am Fame, Fortune, Speech, Memory, Intelligence, Constancy and Forbearance.”

[see page 567,Swami Chidbhavananda’s The Bhagavad Gita]
