his story

On this day in history:

Happy Borthday
  • It is Thanks-giving Day in Canada (on the 2nd Monday of October);

  • Columbus Day in America (also the 2nd Monday of October), which marks the anniversary of the discovery of the New World by Christopher Columbus, the Italian explorer. The historical debate over the nature of his "discovery" I will stay well away from...

  • Double-Ten Day in China, marking the beginning of the Xinai Revolution in 1911, which ended the the 4000 year-long reign of the monarchy;

  • Sri Chinmoy wrote Because You Are A Born-Heart:

    Because you are a born-heart, My child,
    I tell you for sure,
    No, not even the greatest doubter
    Can blight you.

    Because you are a child-heart, My child,
    I tell you for sure,
    No, not even the worst possible rogue
    Can spoil you.

    Because you are a oneness-heart, My child,
    I tell you for sure,
    No, not even the most powerful
    Hostile force
    Can divide you.

    A born-heart, a child-heart
    And a oneness-heart
    Are unparalleled treasures
    Here on earth.
    - Sri Chinmoy, 10 October 1980
  • AND I WAS BORN!!!
