Update on VOV 2020 Summer Camp

Update on VOV 2020 Summer Camp:

Namaste Parents:

With the Covid-19 pandemic, we are facing a universal problem of anxieties, troubles and the fear of the unknown!

It goes without saying that the planned VOV Summer Camp scheduled for July 20th – July 31st is a concern for every parent.   Will it happen?

We do have your interest at hand.

We will provide plenty of notice once we can responsibly notify you of any upcoming changes or cancellations.

Our goal is to keep you informed about our plans and hopefully by the end of May we will have an answer for everyone.

COVID -19 (CURRENT INFORMATION) DO’s and DON’TS

Very very important and useful.

Please share with all your contacts

Johns Hopkins University, sent this excellent summary to
avoid contagion

share it with you because it is very clear:

* The virus is not a living organism, but a protein molecule
(DNA) covered by a protective layer of lipid (fat), which,
when absorbed by the cells of the ocular, nasal or buccal
mucosa, changes their genetic code. (mutation) and
convert them into aggressor and multiplier cells.

* Since the virus is not a living organism but a protein
molecule, it is not killed, but decays on its own. The
disintegration time depends on the temperature, humidity
and type of material where it lies.

* The virus is very fragile; the only thing that protects it is
a thin outer layer of fat. That is why any soap or detergent
is the best remedy, because the foam CUTS the FAT (that

is why you have to rub so much: for 20 seconds or more,
to make a lot of foam). By dissolving the fat layer, the
protein molecule disperses and breaks down on its own.

* HEAT melts fat; this is why it is so good to use water
above 25 degrees Celsius for washing hands, clothes and
everything. In addition, hot water makes more foam and
that makes it even more useful.

* Alcohol or any mixture with alcohol over 65%
DISSOLVES ANY FAT, especially the external lipid layer
of the virus.

* Any mix with 1 part bleach and 5 parts water directly
dissolves the protein, breaks it down from the inside.

* Oxygenated water helps long after soap, alcohol and
chlorine, because peroxide dissolves the virus protein, but
you have to use it pure and it hurts your skin.

* NO BACTERICIDE SERVES. The virus is not a living
organism like bacteria; they cannot kill what is not alive
with anthobiotics, but quickly disintegrate its structure with
everything said.

* NEVER shake used or unused clothing, sheets or
cloth. While it is glued to a porous surface, it is very inert
and disintegrates only between 3 hours (fabric and
porous), 4 hours (copper, because it is naturally antiseptic;
and wood, be
cause it removes all the moisture and does not let it peel
off and disintegrates). ), 24 hours (cardboard), 42 hours
(metal) and 72 hours (plastic). But if you shake it or use a
feather duster, the virus molecules float in the air for up to
3 hours, and can lodge in your nose.

* The virus molecules remain very stable in external cold,
or artificial as air conditioners in houses and cars. They
also need moisture to stay stable, and especially
darkness. Therefore, dehumidified, dry, warm and bright
environments will degrade it faster.

* UV LIGHT on any object that may contain it breaks
down the virus protein. For example, to disinfect and
reuse a mask is perfect. Be careful, it also breaks down
collagen (which is protein) in the skin, eventually causing
wrinkles and skin cancer.

* The virus CANNOT go through healthy skin.

* Vinegar is NOT useful because it does not break down
the protective layer of fat.

* NO SPIRITS, NOR VODKA, serve. The strongest
vodka is 40% alcohol, and you need 65%.

* LISTERINE IF IT SERVES! It is 65% alcohol.

* The more confined the space, the more concentration of
the virus there can be. The more open or naturally
ventilated, the less.

* This is super said, but you have to wash your hands
before and after touching mucosa, food, locks, knobs,
switches, remote control, cell phone, watches, computers,
desks, TV, etc. And when using the bathroom.

* You have to HUMIDIFY HANDS DRY from so much
washing them, because the molecules can hide in the
micro cracks. The thicker the moisturizer, the better. *
Also keep your NAILS SHORT so that the virus does not
hide there.

This is to inform us all that the pH for corona virus
varies from 5.5 to 8.5.

RESEARCH: JOURNAL OF VIROLOGY, APRIL 1991,
PAGE 1916

All we need to do, to beat corona virus, we need to take
more of an alkaline foods that are above the above pH
level of the Virus.

Some of which are:

Lemon – 9.9pH

Lime – 8.2pH

Avocado – 15.6pH

Garlic – 13.2pH

Mango – 8.7pH

Tangerine – 8.5pH

Pineapple – 12.7pH

Dandelion – 22.7pH

Orange – 9.2pH

How do you know you have coronavirus?

1. Itching in the throat,
2. Dry throat,
3. Dry cough.

So where you notice these three things quickly take warm
water and drink.

Do not keep this information to yourself only. Pass it to all
your family and friends. God bless you

Lakshmi

Lakshmi is the consort of the god Vishnu. She is one of the most popular goddesses of Hindu mythology and is known as the goddess of wealth and purity.

What does Lakshmi look like?

Lakshmi is commonly portrayed as a beautiful woman with four arms, standing on a lotus flower. There is usually one, or sometimes two elephants behind her, anointing her with water. She is often depicted sitting beneath Vishnu, massaging his feet.

The rebirth of Lakshmi

One of the most compelling stories in Hindu mythology is that of the Churning of the Milky Ocean. It is the story of the gods versus the demons and their fight to gain immortality. It also tells of the rebirth of Lakshmi.

Indra, the warrior god, was given the responsibility of protecting the world against the demons. He had protected it successfully for many years, and the goddess Lakshmi’s presence had made him sure of success.

One day, a wise sage offered Indra a garland of sacred flowers. In his arrogance, Indra threw the flowers to the floor. According to Hindu belief, this display of arrogance upset Lakshmi, who left the world of the gods and entered into the Milky Ocean.

Without her, the gods were no longer blessed with success or fortune.

The world became darker, people became greedy, and no offerings were made to the gods. The gods began to lose their power and the asuras (demons) took control.

Indra asked Vishnu what should be done. He told Indra that the gods would need to churn the Milky Ocean to regain Lakshmi and her blessings. He then told them the Ocean held other treasures which would also help them. This included the elixir of life, a potion bestowing immortality, which would enable them to defeat the demons.

The story of the Churning of the Ocean tells of how the gods worked together to churn the ocean. They churned for many years, but it was 1,000 years before anything rose to the surface.

Finally, the treasures began to rise to the surface. Among them, a beautiful woman standing on a lotus flower. This was Lakshmi, who had returned to the world. With her presence, the gods eventually defeated the demons and chased them out of the world.

This story highlights the good fortune and success that Lakshmi bestows upon those who work hard and seek help sincerely. It also demonstrates that during times of success, one must never become complacent or arrogant, as success has a way of getting away from people.

Worshipping Lakshmi

Hindus believe that anybody who worships Lakshmi sincerely, and not in greed, will be blessed with fortune and success. It is said that Lakshmi resides in places of hard work, virtue and bravery, but leaves whenever these qualities are not apparent any more.

Lakshmi is particularly worshiped during the festival of Diwali. This festival commemorates the epic story, Ramayana. Ramayana is the legend of Lord Rama’s battle with the demon Ravana, in which Lakshmi features.

In the story of Ramayana, Sita is married to Lord Rama. Hindus believe Sita is an incarnation of Lakshmi. The story tells us that Rama had been cast out of his rightful kingdom, and had gone to live in a forest with his wife and brother.

The battle between Rama and the demon Ravana begins when Ravana abducts Sita from the forest. The epic follows the story of Rama defeating the demon, and his eventual return to his kingdom.

As the three heroes, Rama, his brother Lakshman and Sita, returned home, people lit candles to guide their way in the dark. In honour of this, on the second day of Diwali people light candles in their homes to guide Lakshmi, in the hope that she will bestow good fortune on their home for the coming year.

After worshiping Lakshmi on Diwali, many Hindus gamble and spend profusely, believing that Lakshmi has bestowed good fortune upon them.

In addition to this, two days before Diwali, a festival called Dhantares is celebrated to seek more blessings from her. During this time Hindus buy gold and silver and start new business ventures.

Hindus worship Lakshmi at home as well as in the temple. Friday is believed to be the most auspicious day for her worship.

summing up the modern meaning of Diwali:

Regardless of the mythological explanation one prefers, what the festival of lights really stands for today is a reaffirmation of hope, a renewed commitment to friendship and goodwill, and a religiously sanctioned celebration of the simple – and some not so simple – joys of life.
