      "The Fast Runner is a masterpiece. It is, by any standard,
      an extraordinary film, a work of narrative sweep and
      visual beauty that honors the history of the art form
      even as it extends its perspective. The Fast Runner also
      abounds with humor and sensuality. The combination of
      dramatic realism and archaic grandeur is irresistibly
      powerful. The Fast Runner includes some unforgettable
      sequences. The most astonishing scene has already become
      something of a classic, a word that will quickly be
      bestowed on the film as a whole."

      Namaste Friends,

      I want you to consider ordering a rudraksha mala from
      these people. They are in Mumbai India. The rudraksha is
      blessed by a Brahmin priest according to Vedic
      injunctions. The rudraksha I am wanting you to get is J03
      - Rudraksha mala 7mm, 108+1 beads in thread. You will
      see it about a third of the way down and on the right.
      It is fifteen dollars, and for that fifteen dollars you
      get the rudraksha mala blessed per Vedic ritual, it
      comes in a small bag with the symbol Om on it, and the
      bag is in a small round box with mantras and the Om
      symbol on it as well. You will also get a devotional
      tape, a bag for chanting (it is tradition that if you
      use the mala for chanting that you do it is a go-mukhi
      bag), and a small booklet and also a large book with
      everything you would ever want to know about rudraksha
      and gems. I honestly don't know how they do it without
      actually losing money.

      The only catch is that the shipping is also 15.00, which
      with tax the whole thing comes to about 31.50. But one
      can hardly get a mala of this quality for less than
      thirty dollars, and you will be getting the small bag,
      the box, the go-mukhi chanting bag, the small booklet,
      the large book, and the tape. The whole thing is worth at
      least 50.00.

      If you have any back and forth postings with Neeta at the
      center, tell her that Markandeya sent you. Their e-mail
      address is on the website and Neeta answers most of them.
      She is very kind and sweet woman. Get this rudraksha as
      soon as possible.

      You are what you are, timelessly, but of what use is it
      to you unless you know it and act on it? Your begging
      bowl may be of pure gold, but as long as you do not know
      it you are a pauper. You must know  your inner worth and
      trust it and express it in the daily sacrifice of desire
      and fear. --Nisargadatta

      The Interfaith Alliance of Southeast Kansas sponsored a forum Sunday on
      "Buddhists in Middle America." Read about it:



      "Asia's top tennis player, Paradorn Srichaphan, is looking
      to the power of Buddhist prayer and a smattering of
      superstition to propel him into the world's top 10.

      The 23-year-old Thai, dubbed the "Buddhist bomber" by
      some opponents after his rise from 120th in the world at
      the start of the year to 16th, says devout religious
      beliefs have given him the mental strength of a champion."
