The Programmer Is the Program

The Computer is not the Program The Programmer is the Program. ??!?

Classic Vaishnava Agitprop

Chapter Thirty Description by Lord Kapila of Adverse Fruitive Activities

The Personality of Godhead said: As a mass of clouds does not know the powerful influence of the wind, a person engaged in material consciousness does not know the powerful strength of the time factor, by which he is being carried.

Whatever is produced by the materialist with great pain and labor for so-called happiness, the Supreme Personality, as the time factor, destroys, and for this reason the conditioned soul laments.

Krishna, Brahma and the Gopas

The Srimad Bhagavatam has an interesting chapter about the nature of the ego and identity, described in a story about a contest of power between Krishna and the Creator God, Brahma. There is no need to repeat it here, as you've probably read it. It is available online at krsnabook.com a>

Krishna's ability to manifest himself in the forms of the gopas and calves is expressed. But what about the unexpressed part?

I, Igraine

Who Is Igraine?

The initial observer that was Igraine had died years ago, so who came alive as being her, but was not her?

Whose sense of I, present and past, became her? The original had died years ago, but someone became the I of her deceased person, someone whose sense of ego pertinence, feelings, memories, thoughts, concerns, was her, yet was not her?
