Among vedik peoples, no matter where they are in the world, tomorrow, August 10th, 2002, starts the sshraavan maas, the 10th lunar month of the year is the most holy month of the vedik year. 

This is the month during which many people do various karma to atone for their paapi karma..... or do vrat to attain their life desires.....or those who are sshiv bhakta perform daily special puujaa offerings to sshiv-bhagvaan....celebrate the birth of vishnu-dev's 8th avataar of shree krishna.....keep safe from the 5-minute death from the bite of naag (cobra) by propitiating naag-dev on sud or vad paacham....propitiate sshitalaa-devi so that small-pox does not ravage the humanity and especially the children...and of course on rakshaa-bandhan day re-promise your sister that you will protect her for the coming year....... is a holy month and so just be holy in the sense of upholding one's dharma in one's daily thinking, words and deeds of karma and performing daily bhakti by remembering brhmah once a day is also good enough in this kali-yug....according to ved punya fruits from dharmik karma takes 1 day to be attained in kali-yug where as the same would take you a month to attain in the previous dvapara-yug which was the time of shree krishna's avtaar and will take a year to achieve the same in treta-yug which was the time of shree raam's avataar.....

...we at PVAF pray that all of us would be able to spare a day during this holy month to promote and fund-raise for 1 KAROR RUPEES A YEAR FOR PVAF GUJARAAT EDUCATION PROGRAM as a sevaa to your fellow needy prajapati children and students in gujaraat.....please send your donations of gnaan-daan during this holy month to your local PVAF fund-raiser or contact through email Prajaapati Vishva Aashram Foundation  for your local area fundraiser's name or send your donation directly to Prajaapati Vishva Aashram Foundation, 3103 89 Street, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, T6K 2Z1...

...may brhmah bless us all with whatever we desire.....but remember that we have to enjoy karma-phal (fruits of karma) of our own karma......
