Before & After picture! 
An amazing transformation when a SENTIENT being is treated like an object (before picture), and when she is treated like someONE. 
They demonstrate the transformation that occurs when compassion replaces callousness.

Today's Kartik Prayer
"O King of brahmanas, when someone offers Him a lamp on the full-moon day of the month of Karttika, Lord Krishna, finding that He does not have sufficient money to repay that gift, gives Himself in exchange for that lamp."

THE LONELIEST WHALE IN THE WORLD !!!!

In 2004, The New York Times wrote an article about the loneliest whale in the world. Scientists have been tracking her since 1992 and they discovered the problem:

She isn’t like any other baleen whale. Unlike all other whales, she doesn’t have friends. She doesn’t have a family. She doesn’t belong to any tribe, pack or gang. She doesn’t have a lover. She never had one. Her songs come in groups of two to six calls, lasting for five to six seconds each. But her voice is unlike any other baleen whale. It is unique—while the rest of her kind communicate between 12 and 25hz, she sings at 52hz. You see, that’s precisely the problem. No other whales can hear her. Every one of her desperate calls to communicate remains unanswered. Each cry ignored. And, with every lonely song, she becomes sadder and more frustrated, her notes going deeper in despair as the years go by.

Just imagine that massive mammal, floating alone and singing—too big to connect with any of the beings it passes, feeling paradoxically small in the vast stretches of empty, open ocean.

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.
It is the source of all true art & all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder & stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed. ~ Albert Einstein
