Subject: Why go to temples

A 'devotee' temple goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to the Temple.

'I've gone for 30 years now, he wrote, and in that time I have heard something like 3,000 mantras.

But for the life of me, I can't remember a single one of them. So, I think I'm wasting my time and the Gurus are wasting theirs by giving
 services at all.

This started a real controversy in the 'Letters to the Editor' column, much to the delight of the editor..

It went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher:

I've been married for 30 years now. In that time my wife has cooked some 3
0,000 meals. But, for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals. But I do know this... They all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work. If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today.

Likewise, if I had not gone to the Temple for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!

When you are DOWN to nothing.... God is UP to something! Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible!
Thank God for our physical AND our spiritual nourishment!


another story the 99's club , sent by mr arora of saket

The 99 Club ....."
Once upon a time, there lived a King who, despite his luxurious
lifestyle, was neither happy nor content.

One day the King came upon a Servant who was singing happily while he
worked. This fascinated the King; why was he, the Supreme Ruler of the
Land, unhappy and gloomy, while a lowly servant had so much joy. The
King asked the Servant, "Why are you so happy?"

The Servant replied, "Your Majesty, I am nothing but a servant, but my
family and I don't need too much - just a Roof over our heads and warm
food to fill our tummies." The King was not satisfied with that reply.

Later in the day, he sought the advice of his most trusted Advisor.
After hearing the King's woes and the Servant's story, the Advisor
said, "Your Majesty, I believe that the servant has not been made part
of The 99 Club."

"The 99 Club? And what exactly is that?" the King inquired. Without
replying the Advisortook 99 Gold Coins in a bag and left it at the
Servant's doorstep. When the servant saw the bag, he took it into his
house. When he opened the bag, he let out a great shout of joy... "so
many Gold Coins!" He began to count them. After several counts, he was
at last convinced that there were only99 Coins. He wondered, "What
could've happened to that last Gold Coin? Surely, no one would leave
99 Coins!" He looked everywhere he could, but that final Coin was
elusive. Finally, exhausted, he decided that he was going to have to
work harder than ever to earn that Gold Coin and complete his

From that day, the servant's life was changed. He was overworked,
horribly grumpy, and castigated his family for not helping him make
that 100th Gold Coin. He stopped singing while he worked.

>Witnessing this drastic transformation, the King was puzzled. When he sought his Advisor's help, the Advisor said, "Your Majesty, the servant has now officially joined The 99 Club."

He continued, "The 99 Club is a name given to those people who have
enough to be happy but are never contented, because they're always
yearning and striving for that extra "1" telling to themselves: "Let
me get that one final thing and then I will be happy for life."

>We can be happy, even with very little in our lives, but the minute we're given something bigger and better, we want even more! We lose our sleep, our happiness, we hurt the people around us; all these as a price for our growing needs and desires.

That's what joining the "99 Club" is all about."

We will never be happy even if we are given the 99 Thousand Lac Crore
Treasure hunted in The Sree Padmanabha Swami Temple, because we are in
the 99 Club. Don't Spoil what you have, by desiring what you don't
have because what you have now is one of the many things you once
desired for.

Membership open for All...... but pleeeeeeeeez do not join
