Ananda Marga in New York News from Sectorial Office
Rose Garden at the Sectorial Office
Here in Sectorial Office in New York we are three Dadas, Dada Shankarananda, Dada Diiptimanananda and Dada Vimaleshananda. Today the postman came and he was curious about our Yoga House. It is a bit of a novelty to have monks in this residential area. The postman must know everybody, he is from Korea and there are Jewish neighbors and also Chinese and Indian.
I am very happy to announce the newly registered AMPS Unit in Houston.
A group of Margiis decided to get organized and take their part in locally leading Baba's mission forward. They took upon themselves the different unit duties, and are starting to plan more and more local Houston activities for Pracar and Service. They already have newly printed bumper stickers, and AMPS T-shirts are coming very soon. It is very inspiring for me to see such enthusiastic Margiis, determined to move forward, taking their designated duties with sincerity and devotion.

Potatoes are the ultimate comfort food. Potatoes are available year-round and claim to be America’s favorite vegetable. They are one of the world's four largest food crops along with rice, wheat, and maize (corn), and are considered a global crop. Store potatoes in a cool, dry, dark place or else they will turn green, sprout, and then shrivel up, making them inedible. Don't store potatoes in the refrigerator. Don’t store potatoes in airtight plastic bags. If they are sold in plastic, the bag should have cut-outs to enable breathing. Shield potatoes from light. When exposed to light, potatoes become green-tinged, which is a sign of chlorophyll and toxic alkaloids. For the best baked potato, use the large russets (the Russet Burbank,named for Luther Burbank who developed the Russet Burbank potato in 1872, a more disease-resistant version of the Irish russet potato). Make a nice bean topping for your baked potato and you have a satisying full meal.
