Change - back to the earlier criminals

"Barack Obama campaigned on a pledge to bring change to Washington. "I don't want to just end the war," he said early this year. "I want to end the mindset that got us into war." That is going to be very difficult if Obama employs a foreign policy team that was central to creating that mindset, before and during the presidency of George W. Bush."

Back home - pictures soon...hopefully

I can't believe I didn't post a single photo while I was in India. Now I'm home and back at work, and realized that I hardly blogged at all for the last month. Even though my camera was stolen I got some photos from others and I borrowed a camera for a little while as well. So hopefully pictures will be forthcoming. Many blessings to every one.

Things to share

Sometime in the future I will share pictures of my India trip. For now I want to share two things that were sent to me via email.
1. http://november5.org/
2. Money and the Crisis of Civilization

As I walk the streets of Amritsar and I see trash everywhere, pollution out of control, poverty of the mind and in some cases poverty of motivation, as well as an abundance of material wealth with a few and an abundance of spiritual wealth with a few, I think to myself 'something's got to change soon.' We shouldn't fear change, we should embrace it, we should participate in it. Really our lifestyles now will determine our lifestyles in the future and the lifestyles of our children and generations. If we start living responsibly and sustainably we can be happy that way in the future as well :-)

Anandpur Sahib

I really like Anandpur Sahib. After all, it is the birthplace of the Khalsa which means it's my spiritual birthplace.
I still yearn to be in Amritsar which is where I plan to be in a few days. My friend Parvinder Singh Ji is lending me his camera so I should be getting some nice photos of the rest of my journey.
I've hardly been online and I just realized that several people have mailed me about visiting them. I hope I can read those mails and make it all happen.
I should have some cool updates in the near future with pictures :-)

Latest from India

I haven't been online since Mumbai, but I hope anybody reading this has been over to Sikhnet or MrSikhnet to see the updates from Hazoor Sahib. I wanted to share a lot of amazing pictures that I took, but my camera was stolen in Nanded. I have some pictures that my friends took which I hope to put up later. Right now I'm in Delhi and in a few days I'll be in Anandpur Sahib and then in Amritsar. I hope to update my blog more including some photos in the near future. I'm enjoying my time here in India and am blessed that I have gotten this opportunity.
