Significance of the month of Navam
After attaining Enlightenment at the age of
thirty five the Buddha delivered his first sermon-Dhamma Chakka
Pawathna Sutta to the five ascetics- Kondangna, Vappa, Baddiya,
Assaji and Mahanama in the Deer Park at Isipathana near Benares.
From that day for nearly forty five years, the Buddha continued to
preach the Dhamma to all classes of men and women equally- kings and
ordinary people, Brahmins and outcasts, the wealthy and beggars,
holy men and robbers.
How to reduce travel guilt

plants and trees are essential for the continuation of human life
because they take in Carbon dioxide to grow and sustain.

connected. The question for the next 25 years is whether we'll be
able to tell where technology ends and the rest of our life begins.
