MONTHLY / JANUARY / 2020
Our spiritual master Srila Prabhupada once said, "There is so much information and news about the spiritual world and the transcendental activities that go on there, that even if something could be written about it every moment, still one would not be able to find the end, unlike the newspaper that is limited and simply repeating the same kind of information."
We have put together a website, http://RealBhakti-Realyoga.com, where you can have access to the main literatures written by Srila Prabhupada: Bhagavad-gita As It Is, Srimad Bhagavatam, Sri Caitanya Caritamrta, Sri Isopanisad, and the Nectar of Devotion. We invite you to probe and see for yourself the transcendental messages within, and be taken on a spiritual journey of the soul, back to its original destination in the Vaikuntha or spiritual world where there is no anxiety. Om Tat Sat.

New cow born at Vedic
On August 20th, 2016, a baby heifer cow was born to Parvati Ma, our head cow. This is the first time we will attempt to milk one of our cows, after a few months, giving time to the young one to be nourished by the mother's milk.
The Vedic Ranch is located 1.5 hrs. from Phoenix and only 15 miles from Sedona, in Cottonwood. Guests are welcome to visit seven days a week, but should call before you plan on dropping by, to make sure someone is around to give you a tour of the goshala when you arrive. Call 928-399-0123.

James Cameron: Wanna Fight Climate Change? Stop Eating Meat.
James Cameron, famed director and well-known climate change activist, has a message for the masses: go vegan to fight climate change.
Cameron, who has been vegan for four years, spoke at a climate change summit in Los Angeles earlier this week about the impact of food systems and diet on climate change.
In an exclusive interview with Fortune, Cameron explains:
"The thing that became abundantly clear to us when we met with the experts who are working in nutrition and energy sustainability and climate change is that we can’t actually meet our emission goals if we don’t address animal agriculture, and that’s the thing that’s been left out of the conversation."
This message is crucial because many people who care about the environment still have no idea that raising animals for food is so incredibly destructive.
