Community Service: Food Bank
A positive impact by Temple community

In 2009. the Temple facilitated community service through the collection of canned food items. In December 2009, 111 pounds of food were delivered to the Frisco Family Services Center!  This was only possible through the collective effort of the temple community, especially our Bala Datta families. 

In 2010, due to the great interest from the community, we plan to continue this service. The needs of the community shelters are varied.  In addition to food cans, bags of rice may also be donated. Daily use items such as toothpaste, toothbrushes, toilet paper, soap, shampoo, cleaning products, ketchup, cooking oil, sugar, mustard, salad dressing, and other condiments would be greatly appreciated, too. 

Please donate products with clear expiration dates (those without dates or already expired must be discarded).  Any donated products must be in the original packaging with all seals being intact.

Thank you for giving to the community & helping those who are less fortunate.

2010 New Year Message Excerpt

Per numerology, just add 2 and 1. That is three. You know three stands for the Trinity.  Three is greater than Zero.

Hence, if we stay cohesive, we can beat the pessimism, represented by zero (Shoonya).

Unity is the key note here - Note this.

Lord Hanuman Story

In the last newsletter, Lord Ram and exiled vanara King Sugreev were introduced to each other by Sri Hanuman. Both promised to help the other overcome his difficulties.

As the first plan of their plan, Lord Ram, Lakshman, Sugreev and Hanuman soon reached a decision on how to defeat Vali.  Lord Ram, Lakshman and Sugreev approached Kishkindha where Sugreev boldly challenged Vali to single combat. Vali, ever eager to get his hands on his brother, rushed out at once to fight!

Lord Ram and Lakshman were standing behind some trees witnessing the duel. Lord Ram was to shoot Vali with an arrow but as the fight started, the brothers were difficult to tell apart. Not wanting to kill Sugreev accidentally, Lord Ram did nothing.

Weary and wounded, Sugreev broke form Vali's grip and desperately retreated. Though filled with anger, he listened as Lord Ram explained his dilemma. To easily identify Sugreev, Lord Ram gave him a garland of akshaya flowers to wear. Then Sugreev went off to challenge his brother again.

Hearing Sugreev's calls for resuming the duel, Vali was eager to oblige. But Tara, his very righteous and intelligent queen, stopped him. She pleased with her husband and asked him to think before reacting. Why would someone who was badly beaten return to fight so quickly? Perhaps he is being helped by Lord Ram who was known to be the area. Either way, something seemed amiss to Tara and she begged Vali not to fight and instead to forgive Sugreev and put an end to the feud.

But Vali did not heed her wise words and began to fight with his brother. This time, just as Sugreev was about to be defeated, Lord Ram released a maha astra (specially charged arrow, blessed by Lord Brahma) and Vali succumbed to its power.

Then Lord Ram came forward to stand before Vali. With his dying breath, Vali asked why Lord Ram had attacked him in such a sneaky manner especially when Vali has done nothing against him personally?  Lord Ram explained that it was his duty to establish dharma (righteousness) and sathya (truth) and spoke of the many instances when Vali had failed to lead a good moral life.

Vali realized the error of his ways and repented. He entrusted the care of his wife and son to Sugreev and gave him a gem studded necklace which was a gift from Lord Indra. Vali died while chanting Lord Ram's holy name.

Sugreev was filled with remorse and Tara's grief knew no bounds! But the wise queen never blamed Lord Ram. Lord Ram and Hanuman consoled them.

After Vali's last rites, Sugreev was crowned as king and Vali's son, Angada, was declared the crown prince. Sri Hanuman resumed his duties as prime minister to the King.

Will be continued...
