Lara Lara Cricket Roy

National Flag of the Republic of Trinidada & Tobago

Trinidad born Brian Lara - hailed as King of World Cricket

Son of Port of Spain environs: the sleepy village of Santa Cruz> Brian Lara achieved another first as he played in the West Indies’ first innings of the third Test against Australia yesterday.
He was recognised formally on gaining a double century plus of runs as the highest scorer of Test Runs in the history of the game.

This is a second victory for TRINIDAD & TOBAGO whose Football team "SOCA WARRIORS" qualified for World Football Cup Finals due to be held in Germany.
This news comes at a time as T'dad & T'bago is facing the untoward challenges as a young Republic characterised by rising crime, political insecurity and social inequality.
Needless to say the entire West Indian Team deserve commendation for their speedy recovery from poor results in recent Tests.
While the culturally diverse population of Trinidad & Tobago may be comforted by the fact that their sport icons are shining to inspire the youth forward.
Pour Libations for the Ancestors
In particular the indigenous INERI who are scarcely celebrated in those islands.

"...So, O man, be sure the effects that ye bring forth are ever causes of more perfect effects. Know ye the future is never in fixation but follows man's free will as it moves through the movements of time-space toward the goal where a new time begins. Man can only read the future through the causes that bring the effects. Seek ye within the causation and surely ye shall find the effects. "

According to press reports a fast track payments will commence immediately from which over 80,00 indigenous citizens will benefit. Many of those eligible are over the age of sixty and many victims have already passed on. Never theless it is a great step forward towards resettlement /inclusion of indigenous peoples into mainstream society and reconciliation. Canada deserves to be commended on this brave and just decision.
Justice Minister Irwin Cotler described the abuse which took place as "the single most disgraceful, racist and harmful act in our history". While Archbishop Andrew Hutchison, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, said he hoped the package would bring a "just and lasting solution" for the victims.

Reincarnation hailed in nepal

Buddha with wheel of life

15 Year old Ram Bahadur Banjan is being hailed in Katmandu, Nepal as possibly a reincarnation of BUDDHA. His sacred place of meditation located in dense jungles has been visited by hundreds of thousands of devotees.

According to recent news reports:

The fervour increased last week when a snake is said to have bitten Ram, and a curtain was drawn around him. After five days it was opened and the boy said: "Tell the people not to call me a Buddha. I don't have the Buddha's energy. I am at the level of rinpoche (lesser divinity). A snake bit me but I do not need treatment. I need six years of deep meditation."

The popularity of the boy is partly because the scene resembled an episode in the life of Buddha, who was born 160 miles away around 543 BC. The Buddha achieved enlightenment when he meditated beneath a sacred pipal tree for 49 days, and the boy is also sitting beneath a pipal tree, in the same posture as the Buddha is depicted.

Ram's mother Maya Devi said: "He's definitely got thinner. Early in the morning he looks sunken, like there's no blood in him, but as the sun rises he seems to get brighter and brighter."

May the ancients be pleased
We pour libations for this oracle...
