Water Conservation


(by Shrii Prabhat Rainjan Sarkar as published in Ideal Farming in 1989)

Global Water Crisis

In the near future there will be a severe crisis in many parts of the world. Many large rivers like the Ganga, the Jamuna and the Thames are already very polluted. People cannot drink this water, and if they even wash their hands in it they can become infected. The only solution is to rely on rainwater. We must collect the rainwater, develop the science of making artificial rain through helium or any other process, and bring the clouds which rain over the ocean onto the land. Constructing more deep tube wells is not the answer. Rather, we must catch the rainwater where it falls. Many ponds, canals, dams, lakes and reservoirs should be immediately constructed to catch the rainwater and store it for drinking water. This is the only way out of the water crisis that will confront humanity in the very near future.

Billboard Water Peru

A new water-creating billboard in Peru helps tackle a serious problem -- as well as projects a message of hope -- in an area that's long-faced water insecurity issues.

A university and an ad agency have built the first-ever billboard to capture air humidity and turn it into potable drinking water in Lima, the second largest desert capital in the world. (READ MORE)

Is tap water safe to drink ?

Tight budgets and the economic crisis have diverted funds from the local governments that oversee the safety of your tap water, and as a result, water protection has become less of a priority, says Paul Pestano, research analyst with the Environmental Working Group (EWG) (READ MORE)

There was a Devotional Music Program in which one classical singer participated singing Bhajans. Margiis sang Prabhat Samgiita and after we had Katha Kiirtan.

Dada Ramananda’s memoirs, Ashutosh Baba, is now available from Dada Iishvarakrishnananda in New York, and from Amazon and other online vendors. I put together the book from the daily interviews I did with Dada when I stayed with him for a month in Anandanagar at the end of 2011. It has some really wonderful stories and a unique behind-the-scenes view of Baba’s life (Dada was Baba’s personal assistant for 13 years). Any devotee of Baba is guaranteed to really appreciate the book. I also hope to have it out in Portuguese and Spanish in the not-too-distant future. All proceeds go to the social service projects of AMURT. -- Donald Acosta (Devashiish)
For thirteen years Dada Ramananda served as Shrii Shrii Anandamurti's personal assistant, giving him unprecedented access to one of the most important and controversial spiritual masters of the modern age. He witnessed these critical years of the master's life, including his arrest and subsequent persecution by the Indira Gandhi government, from a privileged vantage point that allowed him to see a side of Anandamurti that few disciples ever saw: the personal, intimate details of the master's daily life. In these memoirs, Dada draws back the curtain and ushers us into the guru's inner circle, giving us a unique behind-the-scenes view of one of the least-known but most important personalities of our time. Dada Ramananda's account is a treasure trove of material for historians and future devotees of God. Ravi Batra, prize-winning economist and the author of The Downfall of Capitalism and Communism Exquisite writing. Exquisite story telling. ... This book is a true gem. Sohail Inayatullah, author of Situating Sarkar: Tantra, Macrohistory and Alternative Futures
O Lotus, I came up like a thorn in your stem. With momentum, the flood came down,  intoxicating me with strong upsurge of emotions. I was down in the pond, amidst muddy  water. By holding you on the head, I forgot all pains. In life numerous blows and counter  blows come. In order that You are not torn, I keep You lifted upwards.

Sending shivers down the lanes
of thorny date trees,
moist with dew,
winter has come with encrusted snow,
building new glaciers of ice.

The birds and animals rush away to faroff lands
to preserve their lives and enjoy warmth,
in the hope of finding a new sun.
 
The water lily no longer blooms with blushing sweetness.
Tell me, today, at whose call, in this chilly dawn,
did the beautiful earth became bare?

Winter came, like an ascetic yogi.
 

Recipe of the Month
by Bhaeravii

Water Detox

2 lemons and/or limes
1/2 cucumber, unpeeled 
3-quarts purified water

Use organic lemons/limes and cucumber, if possible. Wash thoroughly and cut into slices, then place into water. Add a sprig or two of mint if you like. Infuse overnight in fridge to create a natural detox water that helps to flush impurities out of your system. Keep in the fridge and sip all day.

(Other Water Recipes)

Every entity in creation, from the subtlest stage to the crudest stage, is alive. Everything is vibrant with life. But why is everything alive, what fills everything with life? It is the sheer joy of living. If there were no joy, no delight, in living, no one would have lived. They would have left this world, by one means or other. Why then are they here? Because they get joy in living here. Else they would not have stayed on. Bhásyate sarváń lokániti – “The seven lokas shine with His light,” reflect the brilliance of His effulgent being; and His glory makes everything sparkle with joy. Delighted with that luminosity, the hearts of all are dancing in joy. They want to live, to dance, to work, to see, to achieve, and to reach Parama Brahma in order to merge in Him with joy. To live like this – this very way of living – is ánanda [bliss]. The world has its being only because of this ánanda. And if this ánanda had not been there, the world also would not have existed at all. Shrii Shrii Anandamurti
