In order to keep the memory alive and active of all our
ancestors, viz. Sampige Madhav Kini, Mijar Madhav
Shenoy, Mijar Annappa Kamath, Manchkal Lakhman
Kudva, Hiranki Ramachandra Kini, and Adyar
Manjunath Shanbhogue, I have invited all the
members of Adyar Gopal Parivar to a meeting.  

This meeting becomes more or less like a business
meeting with no fan-fare of any kind. The main
purpose of the meeting is for the blood relatives of
Adyar Gopal and Radha G. Shenoy to come together
and exchange views openly.  

The wives and husbands of the blood relatives and
their children and grand-children are taken to be
members.  Any one would come and attend the
meeting and join the club even without invitation
purely on the basis of his or her blood relationship and
how much love and respect he or she has for the
ancestors.

There is no membership fees of any kind.  
I request you to consider this as my personal
invitation to come to our state capital i.e. Bangalore
City, which has been the adopted residence of many
of our members. You and your wife and child/children
are listed as members of this Adyar Gopal Parivar.

Please ask your brothers and sisters and their
spouses and children to send me their names to enroll
as members, if they have not already done so. Even
the daughters are direct descendents.  Since food is
going to be served, I request you to let me know if you
are attending, and how many members will
accompany you.
Note: If any member does not inform me in advance
that he or she is attending then there is likely to be
difficulty in serving everyone properly.
JOYOUS AUSTERITY
Although I have created the parivar,
the parivar is not my primary
objective. It is only a mechanism to
spend my surplus for my pleasure
and satisfaction without losing my
austerity. What I do is the so-called
joyous austerity.

My joy lies in the twin objective of
austerity in my living and joyous
expenditure. One can not live
austerely and at the same time
spend his money for his personal
luxury. I want to spend money, not
save it.

If I save the money or give the
money to Lalitha (my wife)to save,
then neither she nor I would be able
to spend it for our personal joy and
satisfaction. She might not be able
to spend her savings for items that
will benefit her because she has no
ambitions to show off her richness.
One of the joys of being rich is the
ability to show it off for every one to
see.

Even if she were to spend the
money for gold jewelery, cosmetics,
kitchen utensils, domestic
appliances, cars, yachts, high rise
buildings, two seater planes, then
she can not utilise them without my
help. It is I who will end up servicing
these items for her. You know very
well that I have no interest in these
things. Even to enjoy a good meal
in a posh restaurant, it is I who will
have to escort her to the place. It is
unfortunate that Lalitha is married to
an ascetic like me. I can not change
my ascetic nature. She can not
divorce me either, because it is too
late now.

The Adyar Gopal parivar is made of
people who are not rich in the
sense of the word. They are all
ordinary people. The richest among
them do not attend the meetings.
The others who attend the meeting
do not come there for begging.
They come for some sort of
enjoyment that is available by
meeting their relatives and for
gossip. When I hold the lottery it
gives some sort of playful pleasure
to all. When I give away small
amounts like 5 to 10 dollars to
students it only gives them the joy
of receiving a gift. The money I give
is so small that it can not sustain
them even for a day. When the food
is served it is only the joy of eating
together that is gained. They do not
come there for food which they
would not get elsewhere.

It is sad that Lalitha objects to this
activity of mine tooth and nail. But I
am not perturbed. When I do these
things completely voluntarily there
is no sadness if I miss it for any
reason. I am happy if I can organise
a meeting with the cooperation of
Lalitha. But if she does not
cooperate then I do not hate her for
it. I will still manage to get things
done without rocking the boat too
much.

The only way to stop her from
feeling bad is to bring an end to the
extra income. But that would be
foolish.

FREQUENTLLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: My belief is that good deeds
and deeds that pay respect to
elders should be organized with a
will and a wish of all members of
the home.
Viewing from one side  I believe
that your wife has all rights to say
what she is saying.  But I feel sad
the way she is making propaganda
about it.  She should be proud that
you have created this forum and
grown it to this size today.  I
believe Lalitha's concern is about
the expenditure and money. I wish
to propose the following options:
A. Let there be an entry charge
payable by all members who come
to the function on that day.

B. Let each one of us give what
ever amount they feel and it can be
considered as corpus amount for
expenditure.  In case there is a
short fall then you can bear the
balance yourself. This will reduce
the expenses. You do not have to
bear the entire expenditure.  

C. Let all members give money
only for the food. The rest of
expenses can be borne by you.  I
guess this would be the most ideal
choice and all should be able to
accept this.  It would be costing
them as though they would have
gone for a hotel for a lunch/dinner
per head.  Some family members
may be not in a position to pay this
due to finance conditions.  For
such family members we can have
exceptions.  For such family
members some of us can bare the
expenditure.

A: I have not started AGP to make
it a permanent feature. It is going
to die with me. It is only for
spending my money in a good way.
Your scheme is not acceptable
because it allows saving the
money. I do not want to save
money.
Speeches by Dinesh,
Sudha and Ramdas
Yoga Part 1
Q. There is a feeling of
embarassment among participants
knowing fully well about your wife’s
objection to hold such functions.  I
request you to consider my
suggestion with grace and
magnanimity so that days ahead
can be one of harmony and peace.
Also I request you not to bring the
differences with your wife in the
public domain. Everyone will be too
glad to see both of you happy and
together on major issues.  The life
span that is left over is too little and
it is my desire that it should be
more meaningful.  
To make peace with your wife I
suggest you to distribute fruits in
orphanage or old age home on
anniversary day without going in for
this type of function.  By this you
will also meet her demand but also
fulfil your desire.  I can tell you
nobody will feel bad if you do not
arrange for this function in future.  
A: Putting the differences between
us in the public domain was for the
sake of transparency and
truthfulness on my part. I have now
learnt how to get peace and
harmony for myself by controlling
my emotions, speech and
behaviour.
Hiding the differences would make
matters worse.
You are suggesting that "I distribute
fruits in orphanage ...." But when I
see the faces in the orphanages,
the old age homes, temples,
schools, colleges and other places
I do not get the same feeling and
pleasure that I get in organising
functions like this one with my
parents' relations. Charity is not the
aim of these functions. I am
organising these for the unique
pleasure of togetherness.
