Deva and MitenMitchell’s guests this evening are Deva Premal and Miten, both of whom are internationally-acclaimed musicians, loved world-wide.
Deva is known for her meditative spiritual New Age music, which puts ancient Sanskrit mantras into atmospheric contemporary settings.
Deva and her partner in life and music, Miten, met at the Osho Ashram in Pune, India in 1990 at Osho’s Ashram where she was studying reflexology, shiatsu and cranio-sacral therapy, and massage. They have been touring together since 1992, offering concerts and chant workshops worldwide.
Best known for her top-selling chant CDs, Deva is a classically trained musician who grew up singing mantras in a German home permeated with Eastern spirituality. Her albums have topped the New Age charts throughout the world since her first release, The Essence (1998), featuring the “Gayatri Mantra”. Deva & Miten’s record company, Prabhu Music, reports sales of over 900,000 albums.

It’s the Holiday Season! Full of Cheer & Good Will

A time to be care-free and ebullient in spirit. A time to put our material, striving selves aside and embrace the Spirit of the Season.  How wonderful a time it is when we break the routines of work and school to just join with family and friends to celebrate.

What are we celebrating?  Well, in the USA, we are giving thanks for the bounty of surrounding our lives, which shows up first as the love in and around us, and in some cases, just enough to prepare a meal for one’s family; and in others, vast bounty which would feeds hundreds or thousands but in most cases, probably won’t.

first thanksgiving“In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies. For more than two centuries, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states. It wasn’t until 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November.”  (http://www.history.com/topics/thanksgiving)

In sum, the indigenous people of Turtle Island, aka, the USA, helped the original British Mayflower settlers survive the harsh winter, without whom survival probably wouldn’t have been in the cards.  And the feast of Thanksgiving was a way to express gratitude for the help, cooperation and partnership.  Wild to think of what then proceeded, the violence, pillage and rape of the Native Peoples by the settlers from Europe, and profoundly disturbing and sad.

A T-shirt that is sold around Union Square in downtown NYC reads: “Fighting Terrorism since 1492″, we may find that this obtains.

hungry childrenThe reality is that about 18,000,000 children in the U.S. alone, go to bed hungry every night.

Food Insecurity

  • 15.9 million children lived in food insecure households in 2012.
  • 20% or more of the child population in 37 states and D.C. lived in food insecure households in 2011, according to the most recent data available. New Mexico (30.6%) and the District of Columbia (30.0%) had the highest rates of children in households without consistent access to food.
  • In 2011, the top five states with the highest rate of food insecure children under 18 are New Mexico, the District of Columbia, Arizona, Oregon, and Georgia.
  • In 2011, the top five states with the lowest rate of food insecure children under 18 are North Dakota, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Virginia, and Minnesota.   (http://feedingamerica.org/hunger-in-america/hunger-facts/child-hunger-facts.aspx)

World Hunger

  • 13.1 percent of the world’s population is hungry. That’s roughly 925 million people who go undernourished on a daily basis, consuming less than the recommended 2,100 calories a day.
  • The world produces enough food to feed all 7 billion people who live in it, but those who go hungry either do not have land to grow food or money to purchase it.

Now you begin to see what we have to be thankful for, and how much we need to extend ourselves to others in whatever ways we do.  The issue of hunger is enormous, beyond our ability to conceive the pain and suffering this causes a billion people of 6 billion every day.  And we think that we have problems?  Yes, we do, on a profoundly relative scale.  We have the problems which come with comfort and affluence, even if we ourselves consider ourselves to be financially struggling.  These matters are best construed in context, but as you change the lens, the perspective, the more it becomes a human, global problem facing us all, the Family of Humans. The matters which cause this horrific, inhumane dilemma are too complex to go into here, but suffice it to say that there are many wonderful organizations designed to address the problem.  A few are:

—The Hunger Project http://www.thp.org/

—Food First http://www.foodfirst.org/

—Heifer International  http://www.heifer.org/

—Feeding America  http://feedingamerica.org/how-we-fight-hunger/about-us.aspx

—Action Against Hunger  www.actionagainsthunger.org/

Our relative material comfort allows us to give, or in the case of Heifer International, to purchase a chicken for instance, or a goat, from which the owner can sell the eggs, the goat milk, yogurt and cheese.  Or there is Grameen Bank which makes loans largely to women, who in turn begin or continue cottage businesses, pay the loan back, employ people and grow their businesses, feeding their own families and on.

typhoon haiyanA Better World supports participation in these initiatives, as we also support the development of compassionate action of all sorts across our beautiful planet and pray that the casualties in the Philippines be diminished with increasing aid there due to the horrific typhoon.  We also want to connect the dots everywhere to say that Climate Change is so obviously upon us, our chaotic weather patterns are one of its many expressions and we urge action, in all domains, to reduce our carbon footprint, so to do whatever possible to lessen its horrific effects in the years to come.

 

Drop Out of Being Part of the Problem & Become Part of the Eco-Solution
Seychelle Filters Up To 100 Gallons Of WaterA Better World has made available a Hand-Held, Portable Water Filter which you can take wherever you go. It’s the size of a plastic, toxic bottled water bottle, but it’s made of high-grade poly-propylene (does not leech), BPA-free of course, or stainless steel.
You’ll be drinking filtered water every time for a drop in the bucket compared to the cost of bottled water, which also bottles up the environment, endangering fish, dolphins and toxifying land-fills. Become part of the solution through A Better World. Just click on the bottle here or on our website, www.abetterworld.tv.
You’ll be helping your health, our environment, A Better World and your pocketbook all at the same time.
