Share your memories of the 2009 Parliament of the World’s Religions in Melbourne, Australia

The Parliaments

Comments

Let us “MAKE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE”, as we “HEAR EACH OTHER”, and “HEAL THE EARTH”:

The Gift: Dr Sakena Yacoobi, Parliament of the World’s Religions, Melbourne 2009
Dr Sakena Yacoobi spoke at the Opening Plenary Session (see Page 18 of the 5th Parliament's Program Overview Booklet). See also https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sakena_Yacoobi and https://www.ted.com/talks/sakena_yacoobi_how_i_stopped_the_taliban_from_shutting_down_my_school etc. I also attended the Parliament in my own home town, as a "co-opted" minor panel speaker, as noted on page 202.

Here is my reminiscence of that grand opening day, and its' aftermath, where "Courage meets with Compassion":

“We” could have heard a “pin” drop, when
“She” – all the way from Afghanistan – Truly spoke at
Melbourne’s 2009 Parliament of the World’s Religions
Before the multitudes…. Gathered.

“Humble” she was, and
To the humbled she spoke, to
That Gathering of Clans, of
Multitudinous colour….

But who was it that truly listened ?
It was “I” – Lord it was “I” !
The unworthy “I” who followed
Her every truth-full utterance.

And it was “I” who stole a
Private moment – with “Her” – as
We sat – side by side – in public view.
Dr. Sakena Yacoobi was her name.

So pale and drawn in her doleful black,
She radiated “Sun” to all who came.
But it was to the humbled “I” she singled out –
To “touch” – with her grace.

We exchanged gifts beyond understanding, and
Friends we were. No doubt !
“She” – in her own time and place, and
“Me” – unworthy – but returned to mine.

..........

I was also privileged to meet and converse with Swami Amarananda. As I understand it, he was a qualified Engineer before taking a religious role, representing the Hindu religion to the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland. We also exchanged gifts, and he honoured his promise to correspond with me upon his return there. He confirmed to me that (in his own words) "LOVE… is the immutable foundation on which to build anything which is of enduring worth". His 2009 book “Views from a Vedantic Window” was replete with sound advice. In preparing these notes on my memories of the 2009 5th Parliament of the World's Religions, I have been pleased to view Swami Amarananda speaking at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MTIbCR6V4Pg .

I trust that Swami Amarananda and Dr Sakena Yacoobi are still in fine health, as am I, years beyond my expected use-by date, and that their common-sense positions will be promoted in future conversations about religions, above and beyond the huff and puff of puffed up "leaders" in-it for profit, at the expense of others. The GOLDEN RULE is the common thread of GOODNESS which draws us all TOGETHER. Amen and Ameen, etc etc !!!!

Penyakit jantung bengkak atau dalam dunia kedokteran yang disebut dengan istilah Cardiomegaly ialah sebuah konteks manakala jantung mempunyai dimensi yang melebih ukuran normalnya. Peristiwa ini diakibatkan dari asupan darah atau oksigen yang tertahan hingga akhirnya otot jantung perlu berproses dengan lebih maksimal di dalam memompa darah ke seluruhtubuh.

Aktivitas berolahraga amat penting bagi badan kita untuk membuang zat berbahaya atau membakar kolestrol yang berada pada tubuh kita. Tak semua olahraga tepat bagi pasien jantung bengkak (cardiomegaly). Olahraga yang bagus bagi penderita jantung bengkak (kardiomegali) adalah angkat berat, yoga, berenang, jalan kaki.

Wonders have been achieved in just a few short years, and by the power of Google Translate (see https://translate.google.com/ ), I have been able to understand the gist of obatherbal’s Indonesian language comment which has to do with “heart-health”, which is not unrelated to CPWR’s role in mediating the health and “well-being” of nation-states nowadays through its’ parliaments.

Apparently, “Google's free service instantly translates words, phrases, and web pages between English and over 100 other languages”. This is a marvelous service indeed ! We no longer have to reinvent the wheel, time and again !

And we no longer have an excuse to think that we do not know what is "right and good". That "commonsense" is all around. All we have to do is to look – in the right places, and have problem languages translated for us !

Eg: " The focus of life is not religion. Religion is a tool to focus humanity. It is a way to read the world, but it is not the main thing. It is your efforts in life; your humanity. It’s OK whoever you are; focus on humanity. The Creator wishes human life to be enriched… by the “brother and sisterhood” of all races and nations....
