Another day in Paris

In Paris I met two Catholic priests. They were in their car, ready to leave. I told them that Jesus Christ is the best son of God and that I am distributing a book that will help them to understand Christ better. It was funny, because they were simply saying “Amen!” to whatever I was saying. “There is only one God!” -Amen! “Christ comes from Kristos!” -Amen! “Kristos comes from Krishna!”...

Cultivation led to this set sale

This relationship began back last year. We had a kitchen-extraction cleaning at Bhakti Lounge, Wellington, NZ, so I rang up the company who previously had been collecting our oil every month.

In response, I said that we’re not directly linked to them, but our centre is the contemporary version of a Hare...
