OK, so you, like most everyone else, have never heard of Scribd. Back in the day, we remember explaining to visitors the magic of a little search engine we found useful--Google. Well, Scribd is to printed publications what Google is to search and YouTube is to video, a rapidly growing, free place for anyone and everyone to share their writings--poems, user manuals, vintage novels, scientific papers, government documents, useless scribblings and precious masterpieces. The monks discovered Scribd about three months back, and have been working since to get Gurudeva's teachings on this important site, as tens of millions of people are discovering it, visiting it and downloading publications from it. This month a push was made to get Hinduism Today on Scribd, and that's just what happened. If you visit www.scribd.com you will find dozens of issues of the world's most valued Hindu magazine online, for free. Soon every back issue will be there, and it's all searchable! Thousands of readers have already discovered us here, and we have just begun. The monks plan to have virtually our entire library of teachings here. They thought, for a while, that Google Book Search would be the place, but that model proved too illegible and cumbersome. Scribd is the Google Book Search of the future.

"There are three kinds of karma: the karma of all deeds done in our past lives; the karmas we bring into this birth to experience; and the karmas we are making by our actions now."
Karma is an automatic system of divine justice. Karma is self-created destiny; a consequence or fruit of action, karmaphala. By accepting not reacting, performing karma yoga, karma can be softened, mitigated. Seeking the grace of God and guru in the right spirit, the mind focused on the Deity and open to blessings, receiving the intense grace of the Deity in a powerful pilgrimage can actually eliminate karma.
