Prensa Latina

Brasilia, Apr 20 (Prensa Latina) The official Union journal has published today an executive order ensuring the protection of 232,544 hectares of indigenous land, distributed in three áreas of the Brazilian states of Amazonas and Para.

The legislation comes into effect with the release of the presidential order that demands for the rights of four aboriginal ethnic groups in the nation, said Flávio Chiarelli, head of the Native National Foundation (FUNAI).

This way, the federal government shows its willingness to guarantee the rights of native peoples, Chiarelli said.

He announced that in 2015, other lands will then be part of the native heritage, with a population of about 820 thousand people, spread in almost 300 ethnic groups that speak 274 different languages and represent nearly the 0.26 percent of the total amount of Brazilians.

The release of the executive order comes a day after the celebration of the…

Lapwings: Threatened bird species takes sanctuary in a Northern Ireland prison

Prisoners serving life sentences helped create the habitat for breeding lapwings

Michael McHugh

Monday 20 April 2015

One of the world’s most threatened birds has found a sanctuary within a prison that houses Northern Ireland’s most dangerous inmates.

Prisoners serving life sentences helped create the habitat for around 20 pairs of breeding lapwings. The birds have made their home on a marshy no-man’s-land at HMP Maghaberry, dominated by razor wire and lookouts behind reinforced glass.

The six-acre patch of waste ground lies between the perimeter fence and the wall of the jail, near Lisburn in County Antrim, known for holding dissident republicans, sex offenders and murderers.

Swampy, short grass and the lack of predators such…

As we wander thru our days
There are wonders
If we are lucky to see
Not always big things
But special moments that make a day

Such as seeing a red fox sunny itself in Newmarket, NH

Egypt Book of the Dead

Bardo Thodol

Ancient Manuals to the Afterlife – Waking Times : Waking Times. From and with permission ofWaking TimesApril 15, 2015Video – Two of the world’s most important spiritual texts from the past are The Egyptian Book of the Dead and The Tibetan Book of the Dead. These books, written in two completely different parts of the world, describe in detail the process of transcendence from this plane into the next and offer valuable advice for anyone on a spiritual journey. The Tibetan scriptures were written in the 18th century, while the Egyptian texts were written over 4000 years ago and may be the oldest spiritual scripture in existence. Both offer very similar accounts of people with near-death experiences.The Egyptian Book of the Dead was part of a tradition of funerary texts which were painted onto objects, not papyrus. The texts consist of a number…

Karma is the universal law of cause and effect: each action and thought has a reaction, and this cycle is endless until one is able to perform virtuous action without expecting rewards.

The Bhagavad Gita, III.19 and III.20 expounds on this:

Tasmad asakta satatam
Karyam karma samacara
Asakto hy acaran karma
Param apnoti purusah
Lokasampraham eva’pi
Sampasyan kartum arhasi

Therefore, without attachment
Perform always the work that has to be done
For man attains to the highest
By doing work without attachment
Likewise you should perform with a view to guide others
And for the sake of benefiting the welfare of the world
