     Thanks for the opportunity to respond.  Satish must be a great person. My heart overflowed and became swollen when a poor man in a big city gave me the gift of allowing me to notice his looking for food in a 4' x 3' garbage can. He seemed to be very hungry. His gift to me was the look on his face when I gave him two dollars to buy some food.  It was truly a heartwarming experience.  It was like being in heaven.  My reward of the smile on his face was worth infinitely more than the two dollars I gave him.  This seems to come from the belief taught of all great people that it is at least as good, and probably better, to give than to receive and to console rather than seek to be consoled. Warm and kind regards to everyone.
