Tall hairy humanoids who maintain a furtive existence in various remote corners of the world. The "Yeti" or "Abominable Snowman" is a variety found high in the Himalayan Mountainscommonly depicted whether due to associations with familiar Arctic animals like the polar bear, or just the "snowman" association with white fur in fiction, although the local legends described it with red to brown hair. Other lesser known varieties turn up in world-wide folklore and history under an assortment of names, such as the "woodwose" or "wild men" of Europe, or the "Skunk Ape" which dwells in the swamps of the southeastern United States. Common characteristics are said to include an extreme shyness towards humans though reports and accounts of extraordinarily hostile encounters do existemitting horrible odours and unearthly noises, and of course scattering large footprints about as they frolic in out-of-focus areas.
This embodiment of eternal spiritual bliss is beyond any comparison and transcends all limits of time and space.
This eternal truth is free of all illusion and is all-pervading, being the root cause of the entire universe.
Even the Vedas cannot fully comprehend or describe it but it can be attained through singleminded devotion by the true Bhakthas of Lord Krishna. May we all realize our folly and serve Him with complete faith as He alone can alleviate all our sorrows.
Contemplation of this pure divine form of Lord Krishna will lead us to ultimate bliss and wisdom niShkampe nityapuurNe niravadhiparamaanandapiiyuuSharuupe kallOlOllaasatulyaM khalu vimalataraM sattvamaahustadaatmaa kasmaannOniShkalastvaM sakala iti vachastvatkalaasveva bhuuman 4 Oh Lord Krishna!
This unchanging form of Suddha Sathva embodied in Thee, transcending time and space, is the ocean of nectar giving supreme happiness to all true devotees, encompassing all the liberated souls embedded like pure pearls in the waves of this ocean.
Hence this incarnation of Thine as Lord Krishna can be called the only complete one, as compared to other revelations of Thy divine form.
Thus, the divine form of the Lord of Vaikunta manifests itself as Maya or Prakruthi without its glory or purity being diminished or tarnished in any way.
I meditate on Thy divine form which is more beautiful than the dark rain clouds and the blue Kalaya flowers, where Goddess Lakshmi plays uninhibitedly, which being the abode of beauty, is the ultimate sanctuary of all true devotees, drowning their hearts in the nectar of supreme bliss.
Earlier, in my ignorance, I had thought that Thy creation was sheer misery to mankind entangling all of us in the cycle of births and deaths; but now I realise how wrong I was. But for this divine miracle of creation, how could our souls be liberated without our eyes and ears drinking the nectar of supreme bliss in a fully conscious state?
Thou art ready to shower on us all that we desire and even more by granting liberation to our wretched souls. But due to our total ignorance of this ultimate bliss, we pursue worldly belongings and sensual pleasures. Men long for the Parijata tree in Indra's garden when the Kalpaka Vriksha in the form of Lord Krishna is waiting to grant them salvation.
Thou art omnipotent and the embodiment of all virtue and hence Thou hath the unique power to grant supreme bliss to Thy devotees instead of only desired objects, in contrast to other gods.
Those who realise this truth are blessed at every step they take towards Thee.
I pray to Thee for such a blessing. Thou art the embodiment of all the six divine qualities of greatness viz. This supreme divine form of Thine transcends all beauty, radiance and sweetness in all the three worlds and generates intense love in the hearts of all true Bhakthas.
Goddess Lakshmi being so attached to Thee cannot remain long with any of her devotees. Hence she has earned the epithet Chapala or Fickleminded one as far as her Bhakthas are concerned. So strong and steadfast is her love for Thee.
Goddess Lakshmi's firm love of Thee makes her shower blessings on all those devotees who are ever praising Thy qualities and worshipping Thee.
Her fickleness is only with regard to those who have no love or respect for Thee. Therefore Bhakthi Yoga or the path of devotion is recommended by great sages to be far superior to Karma Yoga or path of action or Jnana Yoga or path of spiritual knowledge in the quest for salvation and it can be attained effortlessly through intense love for Thy divine form.
Karma Yoga yields results only in the distant future and Jnana Yoga is beyond the comprehension of ordinary mortals.Unknown Finding the Prosperity by Feeding Monkeys In the short story,” Finding Prosperity by Feeding Monkeys”, by Harold Taw, Taw explains a moral about the importance of family, and how some people will .

D. Shariff. CHAPTER ONE THE DEVELOPMENT OF SELF-CONCIOUSNESS The fundamental principle underlying the manifestations of great souls upon this planet is the development of self-consciousness in Man.
During the five or six year window I hooked up with black girls I found that this affliction didn’t discriminate in the least.
The good looking, the average looking, the chubsters (more on that later), the clubbers, the church goers, the employed, the unemployed, the slutty, the “snowflakes” (who, of course have only slept with their six baby daddies and nobody else) all had children.
