Do not create picnic spots at Vrindavan

श्री राधा कृष्ण श्रीनाथजी की पवित्र लीला भूमि, व्रज मंडल को टुरिस्ट स्पॉट बना कर और नष्ट मत करीए 🙏

#CMOyogi आपसे निवेदन है सभी व्रज प्रेमियों का, पहले संरक्षण (preservation) और मरम्मत (restoration) के लिए funds दीजिए। नए विकास (development) की यहाँ जगह और ज़रूरत इस समय नहीं है 🙏

– first step towards responsibility for Vraj Mandal is preservation and restoration of what is left.

(Several things are already beyond repair).

If nothing is done even today for preservation, Vraj will be in a crisis situation.

The point of no return😢

CM YOGI COMING TO VRINDAVAN TO INAUGURATE THE BIGGEST PARK IN INDIA😥 Our plea to this government who is spending multi crores to hide the sad state of Vraj.. ख़ुश होने की बात है? नहीं!!

The crores and crores they sign on papers need to be used for preservation first. If preserved there will be no need to create anything new. Vraj Mandal cannot be marked as a tourist spot.

It’s excellent that the present government is giving any thought to re development of Vraj.

Sadly this re development will not work till preservation and restoration is given priority.

One just has to take a walk on Vrindavan Parikrama marg to see the degradation of this pavitra Dham.

– We first need to vacate the encroachment on the marg and make a walkway at Shri Yamunaji. From where bhakts can access the pavitr leela sthals of Shree RadhaKrishn.

– Removing the monkey menace is the second step in taking care of our pavitr Dham. All peacocks are being driven away by this menace and bhakts walk in fear.

– Pigs have entered every sacred sthal, including at Shri Govardhan. Which need to be removed ASAP. Five years ago none were there.

Someone is trying to destroy the pavitrata of Hindu teerths.

– Entire Chatikara pavements have already been taken over by the illegal hawkers.

– The Nagar Palika and Police force should become accountable.

The people in power never see the REAL VRAJ PROBLEMS. As every thing is cleared and cleaned at the areas where they visit.

In olden days the Raja and Maharajas walked around their cities in disguise to SEE THE REAL STATE OF THEIR LAND.

Wonder what Vraj Mandal we are leaving for our children and grandchildren.

They will only be able to see the original reality in some photos or videos which bhakts may have uploaded.

And Girirajji Govardhan is in the worst of state today.

All just TAKE..TAKE..TAKE.

May the present government see the truth of their actions.

The crores and crores they sign on papers need to be used for preservation and restoration first. If preserved there will be no need to create anything new.

The old and ancient pavitrata if returned to Vraj Mandal will be enough for the higher divine shaktis.

OR ELSE THESE SHAKTIS WILL NO LONGER BE AROUND.

दिव्य शक्तियों को साफ़, सुथरा पवित्र वातावरण चाहिए.

नहीं तो वह दिन दूर नहीं, की वे सब भूतल में गहरी उतर जाएँगी और हम हाथ मलते रह जाएँगे, अपने दुर्भाग्य पर। हमारे बच्चों को दर्शन का लाभ नहीं मिल पाएगा, और हम सब इसके ज़िम्मेदार होंगे।

जय श्रीनाथजी, जय श्री राधा कृष्ण

कृपा करें, सदबुद्धि दें,

Nine Gopi Elephant at Kunjera Village, Vraj Mandal

Kunjera village is the place where the nine gopis took the form of an Elephant for Shree Krishn

In this post you will be able to hear the katha behind Gopis taking an elephant form for Shree Krishn.

When Shree Krishn was leaving Vrindavan, the Gopis requested Him not to leave. Shree Krishn joked that if they could show Him an elephant, he would not leave. Not being able to find an elephant, nine gopis came together and formed an elephant, which is called the Nav-nari kunjara.

The meaning of this divine leela in the words of the pujari:

A small mandir has been erected here

untitled-6875

The earlier mandir was looted and the original murti depicting this divine leela was stolen. Just a couple of years ago this mandir was established by a bhakt, and a painting is being worshipped at present.

Stop using leather if you are a Vaishnav

For all Vaishnavs, “Do you do seva of Shree Thakurjee  and  Gaumata”

Then stop using leather

सभी वैष्णव के लिए; “श्री ठाकुरजी और गौमता की सेवा और पूजन करते हैं?”

चमड़ा इस्तेमाल करना बंद कीजिए

The Indian Vedic Cow, known as gaumata is the original Cow about which is spoken in all our scriptures.

Hinduism has no place for cruelty to animals and eating of corpses. Humanity does not propagate farming of animals for human consumption.

Our environment needs to be purified; as well as our human body, to enable any rise in consciousness within ourself or on Earth vibration level.

गौमता

सभी वैष्णव के लिए; “गौमता की सेवा और पूजन करते हैं?”

श्रीनाथजी हवेली नाथद्वारा के बाहर लिखा रहता है;

चमड़ा पहन कर भीतर नहीं जायें

कभी सोचा है क्यों?Abha Shahra

ShreeNathji Haveli at Nathdwara

ShreeNathji Haveli main entrance at Nathdwara – where it is written; to remove leather belts before entering the premises

चमड़ा किसी मरे हुए जानवर की खाल है। ठाकुरजी के शुद्धि नियम अनुसार इससे अशुद्धि होती है।

हमारा शरीर जब मरे हुए जानवर की खाल पहनता है या उपयोग में लेता है, तो अशुद्धि में होता है।

दूसरी सच्चाई यह है की अधिकतम चमड़ा गौमाता से बनाया हुआ होता है।

हम अगर वैष्णव हिंदू हैं तो ज़रूर गाय की सेवा और पूजा करते हैं।

फिर हम उसी मरी हुई गाय की वस्तु का इस्तेमाल करते हैं।

गौ की सेवा, श्रीनाथजी की सेवा, श्री राधा कृष्ण की सेवा, पूजा करते हैं, और दूसरी तरफ़, उन्ही की गौमता (या अन्य जानवर) को मारकर बनाई हुई वस्तु का इस्तेमाल भी करते हैं?

यह सच्चाई हमारे धर्म और भक्ति से जुडी है.

दूसरी सच्चाई, अगर इंसानियत के अनुसार देखें; की किस तरह से गौमता (या कोई भी जानवर) को तड़पाकर यह चमड़ा निकालते हैं, तो आपकी आत्मा भी काँप जाएगी.

जितनी कोमल गाय का बछड़ा, उतनी क़ीमती उसकी खाल होती है.Abha Shahra

Young calves are used to make the most expensive leather products

Young calves are used for making the most expensive leather products

आप चाहें तोयूटूब (U Tube)’ पर गाय से उसकी खाल निकलना और उससे वस्तु कैसे बनती है; उसका प्रॉसेस देख सकते हैं।

(लिंक देने की ज़रूरत नहीं समझती हूँ, क्योंकि बहुत आसानी से आप ढूँढ सकते हैं)

१४ साल पहले जब सत्य मैंने समझा, तभी से चमड़े की बनी वस्तुएं का इस्तेमाल बंद कर दिया है. इसके पहले मुझे भी बहुत शौक था चमड़े के डिज़ाइनर बैग और जूते चप्पल पहनने का.

आज बाजार में अच्छी क्वालिटी चमड़ा रहित चप्पल, जूते, पर्स, वॉलेट, बेल्ट, सोफ़ा, कुर्सी आदि मिलने लगे हैं.

चमड़े का इस्तेमाल बंद करके हम चाहें तो अपने जीवन में शुद्धि बढ़ा सकते हैं.

जब शारीरिक शुद्धि बढ़ेगी तो भाव शुद्धि में भी बढौती होगी.

भाव शुद्धि जितनी बढ़ेगी, हम उतना ज्यादा ठाकुरजी के करीब अपने आपको पाएंगे.untitled-11-2


हम इतने अंधकार में कैसे जी सकते हैं?

जय हो प्रभु किहमें सदबुद्धि मिले

ठाकुरजी, श्रीनाथजी बाबा की जय हो!

(अगर आप इस बात से सहमत हैं, तो कृपया पोस्ट को शेयर करिये.

मेरा अनुभव है की ज्यादातर लोग बहुत बार बिना सोचे समझे कुछ करते रहते हैं; जैसे की चमड़े का इस्तेमाल करना.

बहुत से लोग इस्तेमाल कर रहे है क्योंकि सच्चाई को कभी ध्यान नहीं दिया.

इन वैष्णव की आँख खुलने के बाद शायद चमड़ा इस्तेमाल बंद कर दें. उनकी मदद करिये).

धन्यवाद आप सभी को, जय श्रीकृष्ण!

(किसी ने कामेंट्स में पूछा की मैंने सिर्फ़ गौमता क्यों लिखा, सभी जानवर की खाल से वस्तु बनती है, उसका जवाब मेरी समझ में:

इस पोस्ट में दो बातें हैं.

पहली, की जो माँसाहारी हैं, उनका भोजन ही जानवर से बनता है, इसलिए वे ऊपर से शरीर पर कुछ भी पहने, एक ही बात है.

तो अगर मैं उनसे कहूँ की आप चमड़ा नहीं पहनिए, तो ना इंसाफ़ी होगी, क्योंकि जो भोजन वे करते है, उसे पहनने में कुछ ग़लत नहीं है.

सभी जानवर की खाल से चमड़ा बनता है, क्रूरता से, लेकिन माँसाहारी भोजन भी इतनी ही क्रूरता से बनता है;

तो जब तक आप शाकाहारी नहीं होते, कुछ फ़र्क़ नहीं पड़ेगा, की आप क्या पहनते हैं; और मैंने यह पोस्ट माँसाहारी इंसान को शाकाहारी बनानेके लिए नहीं लिखी.

दूसरी बात, जो भक्ति मार्ग से जुड़े हैं, वे वैष्णव कहलाते हैं, ठाकुरजी की सेवा करते हैं, और भक्ति में सात्त्विक भोजन ज़रूरी होता है. तो इन भक्तों को माँसाहारी नहीं होना चाहिए.

और अगर आप माँसाहारी नहीं हैं तो फिर चमड़ा मत पहनिए; इस पोस्ट का मेसिज यह है.

ठाकुरजी श्रीनाथजी, श्री राधा कृष्ण की सेवा और पूजन में गौ ज़रूरी है.

7-17

इसलिए उन भक्तों की आँख खोलने के लिए लिखा है,

अगर आप शाकाहारी हैं, भक्ति में हैं, तो चमड़ा शरीर पर धारण मत कीजिए.

बाक़ी सभी जानवर को क्रूरता से बचाना ज़रूरी है, वह कोई और पोस्ट में लिखूँगी)

धन्यवाद. 🙏

There is an ancient Shree RadhaKrishn murti here, carved out of stone, that is said to have been established by Raja Vajranabh, the great grandson of Shree Krishn. This murti has been desecrated by the Muslims, so worship is no longer done to this murti. Every Monday the local villagers come and pour milk over this murti of Shree RadhaKrishn are kept in a small kuti for darshans, adjacent to the mandir under a chokar tree

Vrinda Devi mandir-The small Kuti under the Chokar tree where the ancient murtis are kept

The disfigured deities murti under the chokar tree had been worshiped as Shree Vrinda Devi for a very long time before Baba Madhava’s arrival. According to the villagers, some thieves had come fifty years before, stolen the sculpture and stored it near Charan Pahari, along with some other stolen sculptures. But when they brought a small truck to carry them away one night, even six or seven of them together could not lift the sculpture of Vrinda Devi. So they left it there. In the morning one villager saw the murti lying by the side of the hill and carried it back to Vrinda Kund(Story as told to us by the family who owns the place)

_DSC3943-2

The fog was very deep as we entered Vrinda Kund

The family who owns this divine Vrinda Kund and Vrinda Devi mandir, are very hospitable and cook excellent sattwik meals if told in advance. The father has seven sons and all the family is involved in seva of the Vrinda Devi mandir and Kund. We had breakfast and lunch at the mandir freshly cooked and served outdoors._DSC4080-2

“ShreeNathji Sakshatkar darshans on Girirajji”

“ShreeNathji Sakshatkar darshans on Girirajji”: Prabhu ShreeNathji and Gurushree’s kripa

श्री ठाकुरजी के साक्षात दर्शन, उनके मुखारविंद, जतीपुरा में; आज से ठीक १३ साल पहले; ऐसी कृपा की कोई और मिसाल नहीं है।

दर्शन भी दिए और फ़ोटो भी लेने दिया; २०१४ में हमें आज्ञा भी दी सभी वैष्णव के साथ शेर करने की: क्या ऐसा कभी पहले हुआ है?

This divine leela happened 13 years ago on the auspicious day of 9th June 2005, at ShreeNathji Mukharwind, Giriraj Govardhan, Jatipura, with kripa of Gurushree Sudhir bhai; and only because of his close sakha bhav with prabhu ShreeNathji.

We all wonder what Shree Prabhu looks like!

The only True photo of ShreeNathji, Shree GovardhanNathji, Shree Thakurjee, Shree Dev Daman: In His Child Swarup.

Please take a moment and see for yourself in the photo above, just below the point where I am applying tilak; complete Face of Shree Thakurjee is visible as this (white) Ujjaval Urja (energy). This divine face Appeared for the duration of my pujan and Gurushree clicked the photos. The mukut, mor pankh, tilak, earrings, long black hair, both palms holding His own face and watching me do pujan, is ShreeNathji giving darshans of His Lalan swarup.

(Just for the record: it is not photoshopped, nor tampered in any way.

Details can be read on our website: http://www.govardhan.org.in

Given to us and ordered to share with His bhakts all over the world.

Thank you Prabhu for this kripa on all Your bhakts.

Vraj Mandal-Vishram Ghat

Sandhya arti darshans at Vishram Ghat:

Vishram Ghat is the place where Shree Krishn rested after killing His mama Kans.

 

 

Visharam Ghat, Mathura, द्वारका दीश मंदिर से 30 मीटर की दूरी पर, नया बाज़ार में स्थित है। यह मथुरा के 25 घाटों में से एक प्रमुख घाट है। विश्राम घाट के उत्तर में 12 और दक्षिण में 12 घाट है। यहाँ अनेक सन्तों ने तपस्या की एवं अपना विश्राम स्थल बनाया। विश्राम घाट पर यमुना महारानी का अति सुंदर मंदिर स्थित है। यमुना महारानी जी की आरती विश्राम घाट से ही की जाती है। विश्राम घाट पर संध्या का समय और भी आध्यात्मिक होता है।

धार्मिक मान्यता

भगवान श्री कृष्ण ने कंस का वध कर इस स्थान पर विश्राम किया था इसलिये यहाँ की महिमा अपरम्पार है। कहा जाता है कि भगवान श्रीकृष्ण ने महाबलशाली कंस को मारकर ध्रुव घाट पर उसकी अन्त्येष्टि संस्कार करवाकर बन्धु−बान्धवों के साथ यमुना के इस पवित्र घाट पर स्नान कर विश्राम किया था। श्रीकृष्ण की नरलीला में ऐसा सम्भव है; परन्तु सर्वशक्तियों से सम्पन्न सच्चिदानन्द स्वयं भगवान श्रीकृष्ण को विश्राम की आवश्यकता नहीं होती है। किन्तु भगवान से भूले–भटके जन्म मृत्यु के अनन्त, अथाह सागर में डूबते–उबरते हुए क्लान्त जीवों के लिए यह आवश्यक ही विश्राम का स्थान है।

सौर पुराण के अनुसार विश्रान्ति तीर्थ नामकरण का कारण बतलाया गया है−

ततो विश्रान्ति तीर्थाख्यं तीर्थमहो विनाशनम्।

संसारमरू संचार क्लेश विश्रान्तिदं नृणाम।।संसार रूपी मरूभूमि में भटकते हुए, त्रितापों से प्रपीड़ित, सब प्रकार से निराश्रित, नाना प्रकार के क्लेशों से क्लान्त होकर जीव श्रीकृष्ण के पादपद्म धौत इस महातीर्थ में स्नान कर विश्राम अनुभव करते हैं। इसलिए इस महातीर्थ का नाम विश्रान्ति या विश्राम घाट है। इस महातीर्थ में स्नान एवं आचमन के पश्चात् प्रतिवर्ष लाखों श्रद्धालु लोग व्रज मण्डल की परिक्रमा का संकल्प लेते हैं और पुन: यहीं पर परिक्रमा का समापन करते हैं।

Garud Puran, death analysed..

A short summary from the Garud Puran

The Garud Puran is one of the Vishnu Purans.

It is in the form of a dialog between Vishnu and Garud, the King of Birds; about death, afterlife etc, Yam, the head of the Patal lok, his assistant Chitragupt, description of the City of Yam, the various kinds of punishments meted out to the sinners, how to avoid sin upon earth, what types of funeral rites should be performed for the departed and what happens when they are not performed and so on.

गरुड़ पुराण के बारे में सभी जानते होंगे। गरुड़ पुराण में स्वर्ग, नरक, पाप, पुण्य के अलावा भी बहुत कुछ है। उसमें ज्ञान, विज्ञान, नीति, नियम और धर्म की बाते हैं। गरुड़ पुराण में एक ओर जहां मौत का रहस्य है जो दूसरी ओर जीवन का रहस्य छिपा हुआ है।

गरुड़ पुराण से हमे कई तरह की शिक्षाएं मिलती है। गरुण पुराण में, मृत्यु के पहले और बाद की स्थिति के बारे में बताया गया है। यह पुराण भगवान विष्णु की भक्ति और उनके ज्ञान पर आधारित है। प्रत्येक व्यक्ति को यह पुराण पढ़ना चाहिए। गरुड़ पुराण हिन्दू धर्म के प्रसिद्ध धार्मिक ग्रंथों में से एक है। 18 पुराणों में से इसे एक माना जाता है। गरुड़ पुराण में हमारें जीवन को लेकर कई गूढ बातें बताई गई है। जिनके बारें में व्यक्ति को जरूर जनना चाहिए।

Portions of the Garud Puran are used by some Hindus as funeral liturgy. In fact, some consider it unlucky to read this text except during funerals.

garudpuran

The paragraph given below is like a summary of a few important facts on death and rebirth, which all Hindus need to be aware of.

(I am just sharing this information for basic knowledge. It does not have the details and depth that the original Puran has)

What happens after death?… Garuda Puran
————————
*What Happens After Death ??*
What is death ?
Is there life after death ?
Is death painful?
What happens after death ?
How does rebirth happen ?
Where do we go after death ?

These kind of questions related to the most feared event that ends our life always fill our mind, especially when any of our near or dear ones die.

We feel that suddenly the relationship has broken abruptly n wish there could be a connection again. In this quest, our journey to find answers to the above questions begin

*So, what happens after death ?*
Death is actually a very interesting process !!

*Disconnection of the earth sole chakras*
Approximately 4-5 hours before death, the earth sole chakras situated below the feet gets detached … symbolizing disconnection from the earth plane !!

A few hours before an individual dies, their feet turn cold. When the actual time to depart arrives, its said that Yama, the God of death appears to guide the soul.

*The Astral Cord*
Death severs the astral cord, which is the connection of the soul to the body. Once this cord is cut the soul becomes free of the body n moves up n out of the body.

If the soul is attached to the physical body it occupied for this lifetime, it refuses to leave n tries to get into the body n move it n stay in it. We may observe this as a very subtle or slight movement of the face, hand or leg after the person has died.

The soul is unable to accept that it is dead. There is still a feeling of being alive. Since the astral cord has been severed, the soul cannot stay here n is pushed upwards n out of the body. There is a pull from above … a magnetic pull to go up.

*End of the physical body*
At this stage the soul hears many voices, all at the same time. These are the thoughts of all the individuals present in the room.

The soul on its part talks to his loved ones like he always did n shouts out “I am not dead” !! but alas, nobody hears him.

Slowly n steadily the soul realizes that it is dead n there is no way back n at this stage, the soul is floating at approx 12 feet or at the height of the ceiling, seeing n hearing everything happening around.
Generally the soul floats around the body till it is cremated.

So, the next time if you see a body being carried for cremation, be informed that the soul is also part of the procession seeing, hearing n witnessing everything n everyone.

*Detachment from the body*
Once the cremation is complete, the soul is convinced that  the main essence of its survival on earth is lost n the body it occupied for so many years has merged into the five elements.

The soul experiences complete freedom, the boundaries it had while being in the body are gone n it can travel anywhere by mere thought.

For 7 days the soul, moves about its places of interest like its favorite joint, morning walk garden, office, etc..If the soul is possessive of his money, it will just stay near his cupboard, or if he is possessive of his children, it will just be in their room, clinging on to them.

By the end of the 7th day, the soul says bye to his family n moves further upwards to the periphery of the earth plane to cross over to the other side.

*The Tunnel*
Its said that there is a big tunnel here which it has to cross before reaching the astral plane. Hence its said that the first 12 days after death are extremely crucial.

*we have to carry out the rituals correctly n pray n ask forgiveness from the soul* so that it does not carry negative emotions like hurt, hatred, anger, etc atleast from the near n dear ones.

All the rituals, prayers n positive energy act like food for the soul which will help it in its onward journey. At the end of the tunnel is a huge bright light signifying the entry into the astral world.

*Meeting the Ancestors*
On the 11th n 12th day Hindus conduct homas n prayers n rituals through which the soul is united with its ancestors, close friends, relatives n the guides.

All the passed away ancestors welcome the soul to the upper plane n they greet n hug them exactly like we do here on seeing our family members after a long time.

The soul then along with its guides are taken for a thorough life review of the life just completed on earth in the presence of the *Great Karmic Board.* It is here in the pure light that the whole past life is viewed !!

*Life Review*
There is no judge, there is no God here. The soul judges himself, the way he judged others in his lifetime. He asks for revenge for people who troubled him in that life, he experiences  guilt for all wrongdoings he did to people n asks for self punishment to learn that lesson. Since the soul is not bound by the body n the ego, the final judgment becomes the basis of the next lifetime.

Based on this, a complete life structure is created by the soul himself, called the blue print. All the incidents to be faced, all problems to be faced, all challenges to be overcome are written in this agreement.

In fact the soul chooses all the minute details like age, person n circumstances for all incidents to be experienced.

Example : An individual had severe headache in his present birth, nothing helped him, no medicines, no way out. In a session of past life regression, he saw himself killing his neighbour in a previous birth by smashing his head with a huge stone.

In the life review, when he saw this he became very guilty n asked for the same pain to be experienced by him by way of a never ending headache in this life.

*Blue print*
This is the way we judge ourselves n in guilt ask for punishment. The amount of guilt in the soul decides the severity of the punishment n level of suffering. Hence forgiveness is very vital. We must forgive n seek forgiveness !!

Clear your thoughts n emotions, as we carry them forward to the other side too. Once this review is done n our blue print for the next life is formed, then there is a cooling period.

*The re-birth*
We are born depending on what we have asked for in the agreement. The cooling off period also depends on our urgency to evolve.

We choose our parents n enter the mothers womb either at the time of egg formation or during the 4-5th month or sometimes even at the last moment just before birth.

The universe is so perfect ,so beautifully designed that the time n place of birth constitutes our horoscope, which actually is a blue print of this life. Most of us think that our stars are bad n we are unlucky but in actuality, they just mirror your agreement.

Once we are reborn, for around 40 days the baby remembers its past life n laughs n cries by itself without anyone forcing it to. The memory of the past life is completely cut after this n we experience life as though we did not exist in the past.

*The agreement starts..*
Its here that we are completely in the earth plane n the contract comes into full effect. We then blame God/ people for our difficult situations n curse God for giving us such a difficult life …

So, the next time before pointing to the Divine, understand that our circumstances are just helping us complete n honor our agreement, which is fully n completely written by us. Whatever we have asked for n pre decided is exactly what we receive !!

Friends, relatives, foes, parents, spouses all have been selected by us in the blue print n come in our lives based on this agreement. They are just playing their parts n are merely actors in this film written, produced n directed by us !!

*Do the Dead need healing / prayers / protection ?*
The dead always need serious healing n prayers for a variety of reasons, the most important one being … To be free n not earthbound !! … that is stuck in the earth plane n unable to leave.

There are many reasons for the soul to be earthbound like unfinished business, excessive grief, trauma on death, sudden death, fear of moving on to the astral plane, guilt, one of the most important being improper finishing of last rites n rituals.

The soul feels it needs a little more time to wait n finish before moving on. This keeps them hovering on the earth plane. But the time is limited n it is very very important that they cross over within 12 days to their astral plane of existence, as the entry to the astral world closes a few days after this.

Earthbound spirits lead a very miserable existence as they are neither in their actual plane nor in a body to lead an earthly life. They may not be negative or harmful but they are stuck n miserable. Hence healing n prayers are of utmost importance during this period so that the departed soul crosses over to the designated astral plane peacefully.

Prayers by the whole family is very vital to help the dead cross over. The protection of the soul to help it reach its destination in the astral world is achieved through prayers.

Please Do Not Take Death Lightly … Now more than ever most souls are stuck on the earth plane due to lack of belief and family neglect.

Finally, for someone who has lost a near and dear one, don’t feel sad … We never die, we live on, death does not end anything, it is just a little break before we meet again !!
