SLOKA OF THE DAY:
Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 1 Text 43
narake niyatam vaso
utsanna--spoiled; kula-dharmanam--of those who have the family traditions; manusyanam--of such men; janardana--O Krsna; narake--in hell; niyatam--always; vasah--residence; bhavati--it so becomes; iti--thus; anususruma--I have heard by disciplic succession.
O Krsna, maintainer of the people, I have heard by disciplic succession that those who destroy family traditions dwell always in hell.
Last Thanksgiving one of the traditions that I had started twenty years ago was broken. My son was not happy about it and nether was I. "Hell" might be too strong a word but, it being one of those signs, it was depressing, to say the least.
