Last week, you heard about the launch of our new food network. Log on to's home page to see it showcased there, or type into the address bar of your browser. The launch of our new food network was planned just in time for a the celebration of Thanksgiving, an annual holiday honored in America and Canada by taking time from work to spend with family and friends, and of course, with a big feast too. It is a time to express our gratitude for the things in our life we are thankful for.

One thing we are very grateful for is Srila Prabhupada making available in English the ancient Sanskrit text of the Srimad Bhagavatam. The Srimad Bhagavatam is the beautiful story of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. This week on Sanga, you'll hear Nagaraja Dasa, the editor of Back to Godhead magazine, read the First Canto, Second Chapter of these divine narrations of pure hearted souls. We offer this to you with the understanding that hearing these transcendental recitations will raise our consciousness to a higher status of being and awareness.
