Utajiri wa Maisha

2020.10.18 23:55 MsifuniMungu Utajiri wa Maisha

Wang Jun Mkoa wa Shandong
Kwa miaka mingi tangu kukubali kazi ya Mwenyezi Mungu katika siku za mwisho, mke wangu na mimi tumepitia hili pamoja chini ya ukandamizaji wa joka kubwa jekundu. Katika wakati huu, ingawa nimekuwa na udhaifu, maumivu, na machozi, nahisi kwamba nimenufaika pakubwa kutoka kwa uzoefu wa ukandamizaji huu. Uzoefu huu mchungu haujanifanya tu kuona kwa dhahiri asili mbovu ya kupinga maendeleo, na sura mbaya ya joka kubwa jekundu, lakini pia nimetambua asili yangu mwenyewe ya upotovu. Pia umeniruhusu kupata uzoefu wa Uweza wa Mungu na hekima. Kwa kweli nimepitia na kutambua umuhimu halisi wa Mungu kutumia joka kubwa jekundu kama foili[a], ambao kwao imani yangu katika kumfuata Mungu imekuwa imara zaidi na zaidi.
Baada ya kuikubali kazi ya Mungu katika siku za mwisho, kwa sababu yabaraka za Mungu, mke wangu na mimi tulitimiza wajibu wetu kwa kutoa ukarimu nyumbani mwetu. Wakati huo, kulikuwa na ndugu wa kiume na wa kike walioishi nasi kila siku na watu mara kwa mara waliingia na kutoka. Kwa hiyo, tulikuwa tunajulikana kiasi katika eneo hilo kwa kumwamini Mungu. Katika majira ya baridi ya mwaka wa 2003, unyanyasaji wa joka kubwa jekundu ukawa mgumu zaidi na zaidi. Siku moja, kiongozi wetu akatuambia: “Polisi wanawaangalia kwa makini. Hamuwezi kukaa hapa tena—mnapaswa kubeba vitu vyenu na kwenda nje kutekeleza wajibu wenu.” Kama nimekabiliwa na utaratibu huu wa dakika ya mwisho, nilishtuka. Nilifikiri: Nyumba hii ya paa la matofali niliyofanya kazi ngumu sana kuijenga, ambayo tumeiishi kwa chini ya mwaka mmoja—siko tayari kuiacha hivyo tu! Ewe Mungu, kama unaweza tu kutuacha tuishi hapa kwa miaka michache kabla ya tulazimike kuondoka, hilo lingekuwa jambo zuri. Kuishi mahali pengine hakufai kama hapa, hakufai kama kuishi nyumbani. Lakini mara tu nilipofikiri juu ya ukandamizaji wa joka kubwa jekundu, bado niliamua kuwa baada ya kuiuza nyumba, tulipaswa kuondoka nyumbani ili kutimiza wajibu wetu. Nilipokuwa tu nikitazama pande zote za nyumba yetu iliyokuwa imejengwa karibuni, nilihisi wimbi la huzuni na maumivu. Kwa kweli sikuweza kuvumilia kutengana nayo; nilihisi kuwa kuiuza wakati huo kulikuwa kwa kusikitisha sana. Nilipokuwa tu nikiwaza juu ya mafanikio na hasara ya mwili na sikuweza kuamua, nikasikia maneno ya Mungu yakivuma katika masikio yangu: “Ibrahimu alimtoa Isaka. Nini ambacho mmetoa? Ayubu ilitoa kila kitu. Nini ambacho mmetoa? Watu wengi sana wameyatoa maisha yao, wakafa, wakamwaga damu yao ili kutafuta njia ya kweli. Je, mmelipa gharama hiyo? Kwa kulinganisha, hamna sifa zinazostahili hata kidogo kufurahia neema hiyo kubwa …” (“Umuhimu wa Kuukoa Uzao wa Moabu” katika Neno Laonekana katika Mwili). Maneno ya Mungu yalichoma kiini cha moyo wangu kama upanga wenye ukali pande mbili. Nilihisi aibu ya kustaajabisha. Ilikuwa kweli! Ili kuridhisha matakwa ya Mungu, Ibrahimu alikuwa tayari kubeba maumivu makubwa kutengana na kile alichokipenda, kumfanya mwanawe wa pekee awe sadaka ya kuteketezwa kwa Mungu. Wakati Shetani na Mungu walikuwa na mapatano ya kupinga, ingawa Ayubu alipoteza mali yake yote na watoto wake kumi, alikuwa bado anaweza kulisifu na kulitukuza jina la Yehova. Hata mwishowe wakati alipopitia mateso ya kuwa ameachwa na marafiki na familia zake na kufikwa na ugonjwa, bado aliona heri angelaani siku ya kuzaliwa kwake kuliko kumlaumu Mungu. Alifanya ushuhuda wenye nguvu na wa kushangaza kwa ajili ya Mungu na Shetani alipata ushinde kamili na wa kufedhehesha. Pia kulikuwa na watakatifu na manabii kotekote katika enzi—ili kutekeleza mapenzi ya Mungu, baadhi yao waliacha ujana wao na ndoa zao, baadhi yao waliacha familia zao na jamaa na utajiri wa dunia. Wengine hata walijitolea uhai wao wenyewe na kumwaga damu yao kwa ajili ya kazi ya Mungu. … Lakini nikijiangalia mwenyewe, ingawa nilifurahia neema adimu ya wokovu ambayo vizazi vya watakatifu havikufurahia na maneno mazuri ya maisha yaliyokirimiwa na Mungu, nilikuwa nimeacha nini kwa ajili ya Mungu? Ni nini nimetoa kwa ajili ya Mungu? Kanisa lilinitaka niondoke nyumbani kwangu kwa sababu ya ukandamizwaji na ukimbizwaji wa joka kubwa jekundu, ili nisiingie katika mifumbato yake na kupatwa na mateso yalo ya kikatili. Huu ulikuwa upendo mkubwa wa Mungu na ulinzi kwetu, lakini sikujua mazuri na mabaya, wala sikujali kuhusu nia za kweli za Mungu. Hata sikufikiria usalama wangu mwenyewe, nilifikiri tu kuhusu hamu yangu ya nyumba mpya ya matofali na raha za mwili. Sikuwa na nia ya kutii mpango wa Mungu—nilikuwa nimejaa uroho sana, na nilijali zaidi kuhusu fedha kuliko maisha yenyewe! Leo, sikuwa radhi kuiacha nyumba yangu nyuma hata kwa ajili ya usalama wangu. Kama nilipaswa kuyaacha maslahi yangu mwenyewe kama sadaka kwa Mungu, au kama nilipaswa kujitolea maisha yangu au kumwaga damu yangu kwa ajili ya kazi ya Mungu, mtu kama mimi—mtu wa akili duni, mwenye ubinafsi na wa kustahili dharau anayependa fedha kama maisha yenyewe—angewezaje kuwa radhi kutoa sadaka hii kwa ajili ya Mungu? Si ningekimbia tu muda mrefu kabla ya wakati huo? Nilijifikiria mara nyingi nikiongea kwa kujigamba, nikisema: Niko radhi kufuata mfano wa Petro na kuwa mtangulizi kwa kumpenda Mungu. Niko radhi kuacha kila kitu, kutumia kila kitu bila kuzingatia manufaa yangu binafsi, hasara yangu au faida. Ninataka tu kumridhisha Mungu. Lakini wakati nimekabiliwa na hali halisi, hapakuwa na sehemu yoyote yangu ambayo ilikuwa inamzingatia Mungu. Nilifikiri tu juu ya maslahi yangu mwenyewe ya mara moja, na kwa kweli nilijaribu kujadiliana na Mungu kwa ajili ya raha za mwili. Kisha, nikajiuliza: Inaweza kuwa kwamba huu ndio upendo ninaopaswa kuurudisha kwa Mungu? Mungu amesema: “Ukipenda, basi utajinyima bila kusononeka na kuvumilia hali ngumu, na utaambatana na Mimi. Utaacha kila kitu chako kwa sababu Yangu…. La sivyo, basi upendo wako haungekuwa upendo hata kidogo, bali ungekuwa uongo na usaliti! Upendo wako ni upendo wa aina gani? Je, ni upendo wa kweli? Je, ni wa uongo? Umejinyima kiasi gani? Umejitolea kiasi gani? Je, Nimepata upendo kiasi gani kutoka kwako? Je, unajua? Mioyo yenu imejaa maovu, usaliti na uongo” (“Wengi Wanaitwa, Lakini Wachache Wanachaguliwa” katika Neno Laonekana katika Mwili). Nilikula kiapo mbele ya Mungu lakini sikukiheshimu. Si huku ni kujaribu kumhadaa Mungu, kumdanganya Yeye? Nilipofikiria jambo hilo, sikuweza kujizuia kunyenyekea mbele Yake na kuomba: “Ewe Mwenyezi Mungu, daima nilikuwa naamini kwamba nilikuwa tayari kuwa mwenyeji wa idadi yoyote ya ndugu wa kiume na wa kike bila kulalamika juu ya shida zozote, na kwamba haya yalikuwa ni maonyesho ya upendo wangu Kwako. Lakini ni sasa tu ambapo nimebaini ufunuo juu ya ukweli kwamba ninaouita upendo visivyofaa ulikuwa ni wa masharti na kwa kuchagua. Yote yalikuwa yakitegemezwa kwa kile nilichotaka, na niliyapata tu katika mazingira ya raha. Lakini Uliponihitaji kuvumilia shida za kimwili na kutia hatarini maslahi yangu mwenyewe, ‘upendo wangu’ ulipotea tu. Kutoka kwa hilo niliona kwamba kwa kweli sikukupenda Wewe na kwamba kabisa sikuwa nikitekeleza wajibu wangu ili kuulipia upendo Wako, lakini ilikuwa ni kutumia gharama ndogo niliyolipa kwa kuibadilisha na baraka nyingi. Kwa hakika mimi ni mfuata upepo kabisa, mimi ni mtu mwenye ubinafsi na mwenye akili finyu wa kustahili dharau. Mimi sifai kabisa kuishi mbele Yako, na hata sifai zaidi kupokea kila kitu Unachotoa katika maisha yangu! Ewe Mungu, mimi siko tayari tena kukudanganya Wewe na kuasi dhidi Yako, ili kukuumiza Wewe. Niko tayari kuweka nadhiri yangu, kuweka kando faida yangu mwenyewe, na kutii mipango Yako na utaratibu Wako.”
Baada ya hayo, niliweka nguvu zangu katika kuuza ile nyumba mpya, na nikanunua fleti ya vyumba viwili katika eneo geni. Ingawa haikulingana na nyumba yetu ya zamani, kulikuwa na simu na mfumo wa kupasha chumba joto, na usafiri ulikuwa wa kufaa. Niliifurahia sana, na tukaanza tena wajibu wetu wa kuwa wenyeji. Kufumba na kufumbua ilikuwa majira ya kuchipua ya mwaka wa 2004 na polisi wa Chama cha Kikomunisti mara nyingine tena walikuwa wanatushuku. Wakawatuma wapelelezi wawili waliojifanya kuwa wapiga ramli kupata habari fulani. Kwa sababu ya kupata nuru na uongozi kutoka kwa Mungu, tuliitambua hila yao, na tukitegemea hekima kutoka kwa Mungu, tuliwafukuza. Kanisa lilipoambiwa juu ya hili, wajibu wetu ulisitishwa. Walitufanya kutafuta kazi fulani ili kuyalinda mazingira yetu. Kutoka wakati huo kwendelea, tuliwasiliana na ndugu zetu wa kiume na wa kike kwa nadra sana. Miezi sita ilipita na hali ya mahali palepale ikawa yenye fadhaa zaidi. Siku moja tulipokea taarifa kwa ghafla kutoka kwa kanisa ikisema kwamba Yuda fulani alikuwa ametusaliti na kwamba tulihitaji kuhama kwa haraka iwezekanavyo ili kuepuka kuanguka mikononi mwa joka kubwa jekundu. Kama tumekabiliwa na utaratibu huu kutoka kwa nyumba ya Mungu, wakati huu nilichagua kutii, na chuki kwa joka kubwa jekundu ilizaliwa moyoni mwangu. Nilifikiria kuhusu siku za nyuma nilipokuwa nimesikia maneno ya joka kubwa jekundu yakitangaza: “Wananchi wana uhuru wa dini, na haki zao halali na maslahi yao yamelindwa,” na nikaona makanisa yakijengwa kila mahali. Nililihusudu na kulipenda jambo hilo; nilihisi kuwa nilikuwa nimeshinda mioyo ya watu. Lakini leo, kama nimekabiliwa na ukweli, hatimaye kwa kweli niliona kwa dhahiri sura mbaya ya joka kubwa jekundu, nilitambua njama zake, na nilijua kuwa matangazo yake na vitendo vyake vya juujuu vyote vilikuwa uongo na udanganyifu, vyote kujifanya. Zote zilikuwa njia zenye kustahili dharau, hila chafu za kuwavuruga na kuwapofusha watu. Lilikuwa ovu na katili, janja na danganyifu, la kurudi nyuma, dhidi ya Mungu, na la kupinga maendeleo kabisa. Wakati huo huo maneno haya ya Mungu yalinijia tu akilini mwangu: “Uhuru wa dini? Haki halali na matakwa ya wananchi? Zote hizo ni njama za kufunika dhambi! … Kwa nini kuweka kikwazo hicho kisichopenyeka katika kazi ya Mungu? Kwa nini utumie hila mbalimbali kuwadanganya watu wa Mungu? Uhuru wa kweli na haki na matakwa halali vipo wapi? Usawa uko wapi? Faraja iko wapi? Wema upo wapi? Kwa nini kutumia mbinu za hila kuwadanganya watu wa Mungu? Kwa nini kutumia nguvu kukandamiza ujio wa Mungu? Kwa nini asimruhusu Mungu kuzunguka katika dunia ambayo Ameiumba? Kwa nini kumbana Mungu hadi Anakosa sehemu ya kupumzisha kichwa Chake?” (“Kazi na Kuingia (8)” katika Neno Laonekana katika Mwili). Kupitia maneno Yake niliweza kuona kwa dhahiri sura mbaya ya joka kubwa jekundu, kuona kwa dhahiri ukweli wa upinzani wake na mateso ya Mungu pamoja na madhara yalo na vizuizi vya watu. Niliwaza kuhusu ni ndugu wangapi wa kiume na wa kike ambao, chini ya ukandamizaji na ukimbizaji walo, hawakuweza kurudi nyumbani na waliishi maisha ya wazururaji, ya wasio na makazi. Niliwaza kuhusu jinsi ndugu wengi wa kiume na wa kike walikuwa wamepitia uharibifu wa mateso yalo ya kinyama, jinsi ndugu wengi wa kiume na wa kike walikuwa wamefungwa gerezani kwa mashtaka ya uongo na kupita siku nyingi za giza, wakiishi maisha katika gereza la chini ya ardhi yasiyostahili mbwa au nguruwe, kwa sababu tu walimwamini Mungu na kutekeleza wajibu wao. Niliwaza pia kuhusu ni ndugu wangapi wa kiume na wa kike ambao hawakuwa na uhuru kamwe chini ya upelelezi walo; hawakuwa na njia ya kutekeleza wajibu wao na hawakuweza kuishi maisha ya kawaida kanisani. Leo, sisi kumwamini Mungu na kutoa ukarimu ilikuwa tu ni kutekeleza wajibu wetu kama viumbe. Tulikuwa tunatekeleza majukumu yetu, na kabisa hatukuwa tumevunja sheria au kanuni za CCP, lakini bado tulikuwa wenye uelekeo wa shutuma na udhalimu usio na msingi. Tuliweza tu kujiondoa na kwenda mahali pengine tena ili kutimiza wajibu wetu. Licha ya haya, polisi hawakupumzika katika ukimbizaji wao kwetu, lakini kwa kweli walijificha kwa kujifanya wapiga ramli ili kutafuta habari, wakifikiri kuwa wangeweza kupata ushahidi wa kutunasia na kututesa. Joka kubwa jekundu kwa kweli ni bovu kupita kiasi, danganyifu, lenye kustahili dharau, na katili! Wakati huu, niliona kwamba joka kubwa jekundu lilikuwa na nia mbovu na katili, lenye hila na udanganyifu, kaidi, dhidi ya Mbingu, na lenye kupinga maendeleo sana. Lilikuwa ni pepo ambalo liliwala watu na kuleta madhara kwao! Mungu mwenye mwili alikuja duniani ili kuuokoa uumbaji Wake, wanadamu. Huu ulikuwa upendo wa Mungu kwa mwanadamu; lilikuwa jambo kubwa sana, la furaha, lakini joka kubwa jekundu halingemruhusu Mungu kuja miongoni mwa binadamu, halingewaruhusu watu kumwabudu Mungu na kutembea katika njia sahiho katika maisha yao. Lilifanya kila kitu lilichoweza kumwinda Kristo kwa wayowayo, kwa ukatili liliwatesa wateule wa Mungu, na kujaribu kuivuruga na kuiangamiza kazi ya Mungu. Lilijaribu kuwaua watu wote wateule wa Mungu, na kuibomoa kazi yote ya Mungu katika siku za mwisho. Kwa kweli lilikuwa la kupinga maendeleo lisilovumilika na Mbinguni! Kwa kufikiria hilo, nilihisi uchungu mkubwa zaidi wa haki na nilikuwa na chuki kubwa kwa joka kubwa jekundu. Shukrani iwe kwa Mungu! Ilikuwa ni kazi na maneno ya Mungu ya vitendo yaliyoondoa kabisa barakoa za joka kubwa jekundu na kufichua kikamilifu ubaya wa unafiki walo na sura ya heshima. Hili hatimaye lilifungua macho yangu ambayo yalikuwa yamepofushwa. Roho yangu iliamshwa, na nikaona uwazi wa ukweli ambao joka kubwa jekundu hujengea jina lake kwa kuudanganya umma na ukweli wa udanganyifu walo na uharibifu. Kwa hiyo nilikuwa na ujasiri na azimio la kulitelekeza kabisa, kulikataa. Aidha, nikilinganishwa na uovu wenye kustahili dharau na uchafu wa giza wa joka kubwa jekundu, nilipata ufahamu hata mkubwa zaidi wa haki ya Mungu, utakatifu, mwanga, na wema. Niliona wokovu Wake mkuu na utunzaji wa sisi wanadamu waovu; niliona kwamba bila kujali jinsi mazingira yalivyokuwa makali, bila kujali ni aina gani ya upinzani na ukandamizaji uliokuwepo kutoka kwa joka kubwa jekundu, Mungu hajawahi kuuacha wokovu Wake kwetu. Yeye bado anavumilia mateso yote ili kufanya kazi Anayopaswa kufanya. Katika ulimwengu huu mchafu, muovu, tunaweza tu kumtegemea Mungu—Yeye ndiye upendo wetu mkuu mno na wokovu wetu mkuu mno ambako tuna shauku ya maisha ya kufuatilia ukweli, na kumfuata Kristo. Shukrani ziwe kwa Mungu kwa kuniandalia karamu ya aina hiyo ili kuila, kwamba katikati ya taabu ninaweza kupata utambuzi na ufahamu. Kuanzia sasa kwendelea, ninaapa kwa maisha yangu kwamba nitafanya sitisho kamili na joka kubwa jekundu. Nitakuwa adui walo wa jadi. Bila kujali ni namna gani lilo hunitesa au kunifuatilia, sitatishwa na udhalimu walo. Nitamfuata tu Mungu kwa karibu, kutegemea uongozi Wake, kupenya ukandamizaji wa nguvu zote za giza, na kutimiza wajibu wangu ili kufidia neema ya wokovu wa Mungu.
Kwa sababu ya hali zisizopendeza ambazo hazikuturuhusu kukaa huko kwa muda mrefu, tulikurupuka mara nyingine tena ili kuhamia sehemu nyingine geni. Baada ya kuwasili, dada mmoja kutoka kwa nyumba ya Mungu akasema kuwa hili lilikuwa eneo la wachache wa kabila la hapo na kwamba joka kubwa jekundu halikuwa kali sana hapo. Mazingira yalikubalika hasa. Lakini moyo wangu haukuhisi starehe. Nikajiwazia: huu sasa ndio utawala wa joka kubwa jekundu na ni kama kwamba mawingu meusi yanajongelea juu ya jiji. Halitaturuhusu tumwamini Mungu kwa amani. Kwa hakika, tulipokuwa huko kwa muda wa siku 20 tu, wapelelezi wa joka kubwa jekundu walifika nyumbani kwetu wakisingizia kukusanya ada ya usafi na kuanza kutafuta watu ndani na nje ya nyumba yetu, wakimwuliza mke wangu kwa ukali alikotoka, mahali ambako yake yalikuwa yamesajiliwa, na kwa nini alikuwa amekuja hapa. Mmoja wao akamwuliza kama mumewe alifanana jinsi fulani. Akasema “Ndiyo,” na mara tu waliposikia hilo waliangaliana. Ni hapo tu mke wangu alipotambua kwamba walijua jinsi nilivyofanana bila ya kuuona uso wangu. Ni lazima ilikuwa ni Yuda ambaye alinisaliti, ambaye hata alikuwa amewaelezea mfano wangu. Baada ya kuondoka walienda nyumbani kwa majirani nyuma yetu tu. Ni hapo tu tulipofahamu kuwa majirani zetu walikuwa wakifanya kazi nao na walikuwa wakitufuatia. Mara moja tukaripoti hili kwa kanisa. Baada ya muda mfupi, dada mmoja kutoka kwa kanisa alituandikia barua iliyosema: “Polisi wa mahali hapo wamewasiliana na polisi kutoka makazi yenu ya kudumu. Wana nia ya kuwazuia wale wenu ambao mmesalitiwa. Wanataka kwanza kuchunguza hali kwa ziara zisizotangazwa ili kuwafahamu, na wakati utakapokuwa sawa watawakamata nyote. Hali yenu ni ya hatari, mnapaswa kurudi kwa makazi yenu ya kudumu ya Shandong na kujificha. Shikeni njia haraka—mapema iwezekanavyo—mkikawia huenda msiweze kuondoka!” Baada ya kuona barua hii, hatukuthubutu kuipuuza. Tuliamua kuondoka siku iliyofuata. Usiku huo, nilikuwa nikigaagaa na kupinduka na kamwe sikuweza kulala. Sikuwa tu na ghadhabu sana kwa mateso ya hasira ya joka kubwa jekundu, lakini pia nilihisi kuchanganyikiwa na kutofarijika juu ya njia iliyo mbele. Oo! Mwanzoni nilidhani kwamba kumwamini Mungu ilikuwa rahisi, kwamba yote niliyoyahitaji kufanya ni kumkubali Mungu kwa maneno yangu, kumwamini Yeye ndani ya moyo wangu, na kufanya yote iliyowezekana kutimiza wajibu wangu na ningepokea sifa za Mungu. Sikuwahi kufikiria kamwe kwamba njia hii ingekuwa ngumu zaidi jinsi nilivyozidi kuitembea. Nilipokuwa tu nahisi wasiwasi na kusikitika kwa sababu ya safari yangu ngumu ya kumwamini Mungu, maneno Yake yalinipatia nuru: “Watu hawachukulii imani kwa Mungu kwa uzito kwa kuwa kuamini Mungu ni jambo geni, jambo lisilo la kawaida sana kwao. Kwa njia hii, hawafikii mahitaji ya Mungu. Kwa maneno mengine, ikiwa watu hawamjui Mungu, hawajui kazi Yake, basi hawafai kwa matumizi na Mungu, sembuse kuweza kutimiza hamu ya Mungu. ‘Imani katika Mungu’ inamaanisha kuamini kuwa kuna Mungu; hii ndiyo dhana rahisi zaidi ya imani katika Mungu. Zaidi ya hayo, kuamini kuwa kuna Mungu si sawa na kuamini katika Mungu kwa ukweli; bali, ni aina ya imani sahili ikiwa na vipengee vya uzito vya kidini. Imani ya kweli katika Mungu ina maana kupitia maneno na kazi ya Mungu kwa msingi wa imani kuwa Mungu ndiye mkuu juu ya vitu vyote. Kwa hivyo mtawekwa huru kutokana na tabia yenu ya upotovu, mtatimiza hamu ya Mungu, na mtapata kumjua Mungu. Ni kwa kupitia safari ya aina hii tu ndio mnaweza kusemekana kuwa mnaamini katika Mungu” (Dibaji wa Neno Laonekana katika Mwili). Niliketi kimya, nikijaribu kuelewa maana ya maneno Yake. Ndani, kwa polepole nilichangamka: Ndio, ni kweli kwamba imani ya kweli katika Mungu inamaanisha kupata maneno na kazi Yake kwa kutegemeza imani kwamba Yeye ana ukuu juu ya vitu vyote, hivyo tunaweza kuachiliwa huru kutoka kwa tabia zetu potovu, tutimize shauku ya Mungu, na tuje kumjua. Ni kwa njia ya safari kama hiyo tu tunapoweza kusemwa kuwa tunamwamini Mungu. Bila shaka haikuwa rahisi kama nilivyoamini, kwamba nilihitaji tu kumkiri Yeye kwa maneno yangu, kwendelea kuwa na mikutano na wengine, kula na kunywa maneno ya Mungu, na kutimiza wajibu wangu. Aina hii ya imani yangu ilikuwa tu imani isiyo dhahiri ya kidini na haikuwa na asili ya imani katika Mungu. Hata kama ningefuata hadi mwisho, singeweza kuyaridhisha mapenzi ya Mungu, wala singeweza kupata sifa Zake. Nilimfikiria Petro; katika imani yake kwa Mungu, alisisitiza kulichukua neno la Mungu katika maisha yake ya kila siku ili kupata uzoefu wake. Bila kujali kilichotokea, alikuwa akitafuta kuyaridhisha mapenzi ya Mungu na matakwa Yake. Kama ilikuwa hukumu na kuadibu, majaribu na usafishwaji, au shida na mateso pamoja na nidhamu, daima aliweza kulikubali na kulitii. Kutoka hapo, alitafuta ukweli, akafuatilia elimu yake mwenyewe na elimu ya Mungu. Ukimbizaji wake wa miaka mingi haukusababisha tu mabadiliko katika tabia yake mwenyewe, lakini pia alikuja kuwa na maarifa zaidi juu ya Mungu kuliko mtu mwingine yeyote kwa enzi zote. Imani ya Petro ilikuwa kwa mujibu wa mapenzi ya Mungu, na ilikuwa ndiyo ya juu kabisa. Lakini nilikuwa na mtazamo sahili mno juu ya kumwamini Mungu. Nilidhani kwamba nilihitaji tu kwendelea kuwa na mikutano na wengine, kula na kunywa maneno ya Mungu, na kutimiza wajibu wangu na ningeweza kupokea sifa Zake. Kuna tofauti gani kati ya mawazo yangu na ya wale wasioamini na watu wa dini? Mwishowe, si yote bado yangekuwa ni bure? Ni hapo tu nilipotambua kwamba miaka yangu yote ya kumwamini Mungu ilikuwa imejawa na mchafuko. Sikujua hata ni nini maana ya kumwamini Mungu. Kama haingekuwa ni ufunuo wa Mungu wa vitendo na uongozi na upataji nuru wa maneno Yake, ningekuwa bado nikimfuata Mungu huku nikiishi katika dhana zangu na mawazo yangu. Bado singekuwa nimeona kwamba mimi kwa hakika ni muumini wa dini ambaye hufuata tu njia yake mwenyewe. Sikuweza kujizuia kuhisi hofu kidogo wakati huo. Nilitambua kwamba kama ningeendelea na njia hii ya kuchanganyikiwa ya kumfuata Mungu bila kuzingatia kupata uzoefu wa kazi Yake, au kuzingatia kufuatilia ukweli au mabadiliko katika tabia, hatimaye bila shaka ningeangamizwa na Mungu. Nilipoona hali zangu zenye hatari, mara moja nilimwomba Mungu: “Ewe Mungu! Asante kwa ufunuo Wako na nuru Yako ambavyo vimenisaidia kuelewa ukweli na kutambua makosa katika imani yangu kwa Mungu. Ewe Mungu! Niko tayari kufuata mfano wa vitendo vya Petro, kufuatilia njia aliyoichukua. Kwa kuwa nimechagua njia hii sasa, niko tayari kwenda mbele kwa ujasiri bila kujali jinsi njia hii ilivyo danganyifu au ni hatari ngapi zilizojificha mbele yangu. Niko tayari kuwa na ridhaa ya kuteseka, kutii usanifu Wako na mipango, na kwa kweli kupitia maneno Yako na kufanya kazi kulingana na matakwa Yako kwangu ili niweze kuwa kiumbe Wako ambaye anakwamini Wewe kwa kweli na anayekuabudu Wewe.” Nilihisi utulivu sana baada ya kuomba na nilikuwa na ujasiri wa kupata uzoefu wa kazi ya Mungu.
Siku iliyofuata, tulipanda garimoshi kwenda Shandong. Baada ya kujificha kwa muda katika makazi yetu ya kudumu ya Shandong pamoja na vipingamizi vichache, chini ya uongozi wa Roho Mtakatifu, hatimaye tuliweza kuwasiliana na kanisa, na tulianza tena maisha yetu ya kanisa. Lakini joka kubwa jekundu halikuwa limelegea katika mateso yalo kwetu. Bila kujali ni wapi tulikwenda, daima tulikuwa na uelekeo wa masharti na vikwazo vyake. Polisi walikuja mara kwa mara kukagua vibali vya makazi—wakati mwingine wangekuja mara mbili kwa siku na kusisitiza kabisa kwamba tujisajili kwa vibali vya makazi vya muda mfupi, vinginevyo wangetufukuza. Hivyo, kuhama nyumba kukawa kitu cha kawaida kwetu. Baadaye, tulihamia katika fleti kubwa ya vyumba vingi ambamo mtoto wa kiume wa ndugu mmoja mzee kanisani alikodesha mahali, hivyo huyu ndugu alitukaribisha huko. Lakini huko sio tu kuwa tulihitaji kujiandikisha kwa kibali cha makazi cha muda mfupi, lakini tulihitajika kuwa na kibali cha kuingia na kutoka ama sivyo hatungeweza kuja na kwenda, sembuse kuweza kuingia. Ilibidi tujifiche ndani ya nyumba na hatukuweza kwenda nje. Hata hivyo, polisi bado hawakukata tamaa. Bado wao mara kwa mara waliingia nyumba hadi nyumba wakifanya ukaguzi. Kutoka kwa hili tuliona kuwa katika nchi hii ya udikteta, isiyo na dini iliyoongozwa na chama kikanamungu, imani katika Mungu ilikandamizwa na kudhulumiwa kila mara. Hili kwa hakika lilisababisha chuki ya kimya kimya. Hasa wakati wa Olimpiki ya mwaka wa 2008 hali ilikuwa yenye fadhaa sana, ya kuchukiza sana. Joka kubwa jekundu liliweka mitego na polisi walikuwa wakilinda kila mahali. Hata hivyo, ilikuwa katika hali hizi tulipoona ukuu wa Mungu, hekima, na matendo Yake ya ajabu, kwamba ilikuwa Mungu ndiye aliazimia kila kitu. Kila wakati maafisa walipotaka kufanya ukaguzi, kwa mpango wa Mungu mtu aliyelinda lango kuu angekuja kumwambia ndugu yetu mzee ili tuweze kujipanga haraka na kujificha mapema. Kulikuwa na wakati mmoja ambapo polisi walifanya ukaguzi wa ghafla wakati tulipokuwa katikati ya mkutano. Tulisikia mbwa nje wakibweka kama wazimu. Watu waliofanya uchunguzi walikuwa wameingia kwa nguvu ndani ya uga wakisingizia kuangalia mita za umeme; walikuwa wakizunguka kila mahali, wakiangalia kwa makini, wakitafuta, wakihoji, na wakimwogofya ndugu yetu mzee, ambaye alitumia hekima kutoka kwa Mungu kuwafanya waondoke. Sote tulihofia baada ya wao kuondoka. Kwa bahati sote tulikuwa tumejificha mapema—kama wangetupata ama kupata vitabu vya maneno ya Mungu, matokeo hayangefikirika. Wakati tu kulikuwa na hofu ikilimatia moyoni wangu, nilifikiria kuhusu maneno haya ya Mungu: “Usikubali udhibiti wa mtu yeyote, jambo au kitu; alimuradi linapatana na mapenzi Yangu basi lifanye kwa mujibu wa maneno Yangu. Usiogope, kwa kuwa mikono Yangu hukusaidia, na kwa hakika Nitakukinga dhidi ya watu wote wabaya” (“Sura ya 28” ya Matamko ya Kristo Mwanzoni katika Neno Laonekana katika Mwili). “Tendeni kwa ujasiri! Kuweni watulivu tu! Usiogope: Mimi—Baba yenu—niko hapa kuwasaidia na hamtateseka. Alimradi muombe na kusali zaidi mbele Yangu mara kwa mara, Nitawapa imani yote. Kutoka kwa nje, wale walio na mamlaka wanaweza kuonekana kuwa waovu, lakini msiogope, kwa kuwa hii ni kwa sababu mna imani kidogo. Almuradi imani yenu ikue, hakuna kitu kitakachokuwa kigumu mno. Rukeni kwa furaha hadi mridhike sana! Kila kitu ki chini ya miguu yenu, na ndani ya mshiko Wangu. Je, mafanikio au maangamizo hayaamuliwi na neno Langu moja?” (“Sura ya 75” ya Matamko ya Kristo Mwanzoni katika Neno Laonekana katika Mwili). Maneno ya Mungu yalinifanya nione aibu. Ulikuwa ni ukweli. Si watu wote, matukio, na mambo katika dunia hii ndani ya madhumuni na mipango ya Mungu? Si vyote pinduka, kufanyika upya, na kubadilika kulingana na mawazo Yake? Joka kubwa jekundu pia ni kiumbe katika mikono ya Mungu. Bila kujali jinsi lilivyo kali, haliwezi kuepuka utawala Wake. Akitaka kuliangamiza, si Yeye angesema neno moja tu? Mungu hajaliangamiza, lakini Ameliruhusu ukatili wake kwa muda. Hili ni kutupa imani na ujasiri, na ni kutuwezesha kujua hekima ya Mungu, kudura, na matendo ya ajabu kupitia uzoefu wetu. Pia ni kuturuhusu kutambua vizuri, asili ovu, ya kupinga maendeleo na vilevile sura mbaya ya joka kubwa jekundu katika ukandamizaji wake, ili tuweze kulichukia, kulikataa, kulisaliti, na kulilaani kwa dhati. Chini ya mwongozo na uongozi wa maneno ya Mungu, sio tu kuwa sikuwa mwepesi kutishwa na mwenye kuogofywa tena, lakini nilijaa shukrani kwa Mungu. Nilikuwa tayari kuwa mtiifu katika mazingira haya na kushindana na joka kubwa jekundu, kuyakubali mafunzo ya Mungu mwenyewe na ukamilifu, kutafuta kuelewa na kupata zaidi katika ukweli. Miezi michache iliyofuata, polisi wa mahali palepale wangefanya ziara za ghafla mara mbili au tatu kila mwezi, hivyo hatukuweza kujiandaa kwa ziara zao. Lakini ilikuwa ni chini ya hali hizi za kuogofya ambapo tuliweza kuepuka mtazamo wao mara kwa mara chini ya utunzaji na ulinzi wa Mungu. Kulikuwa na kuponea chupuchupu daima, na mambo daima yalikuwa sawa kwa shida. Baada ya uzoefu huu, sikuweza kujizuia kuhisi shukrani ya kweli na sifa kwa Mungu ndani ya moyo wangu. Niliwaza: “Ee Mwenyezi Mungu! Wewe kwa hakika ni Bwana wa ulimwengu anayesimamia vitu vyote. Matendo Yako ya ajabu yako kila mahali na kwa njia ya uzoefu wangu halisi sijapata tu ladha ya kudura Yako na hekima, lakini nimeona kwamba Wewe ni msaidizi wangu mkuu mno, Wewe ni kimbilio langu na nimeona kuwa joka kubwa jekundu si kitu ila tishio la bure tu. Unapoliangalia kutoka nje ni la vita vya kishenzi na dhalimu mno, lakini wakati linapokabiliwa na Wewe, ni dhaifu sana na halina nguvu—haliwezi kuhimili pigo moja. Linaweza tu kuzingatia kwa utiifu kazi Zako na usanifu Wako. Kwa kadri nina imani ninaweza kuzishinda nguvu zote za giza. Ewe Mungu! Ingawa sasa niko katika nchi hii iliyodhibitiwa na pepo, sitakuwa chini ya vikwazo vya mtu yeyote, tukio, au kitu. Nitainuka tu kutoka kwa ukandamizaji wa giza, nisimame kutoka mahali hapa pa uchafu ili kutenda kama ushahidi wa ushindi Wako.”
Chini ya hali ya kuogofya ya kufuatiliwa na joka kubwa jekundu, nilikuwa na uzoefu mkubwa kwamba ni maneno ya Mwenyezi Mungu yakiniongoza kupitia majaribu baada ya majaribu, na kunisaidia kushinda mara kwa mara katika majaribio ya Shetani. Ilikuwa ni neema kubwa na ulinzi wa Mungu vilivyonileta hapa leo. Nifikiri nyuma juu ya barabara niliyoichukua, nimepitia ukandamizwaji na ukimbizwaji wa joka kubwa jekundu, nimeshindwa kurudi nyumbani na kuhamishwa, nimeishi maisha ya mzururaji, na sijakuwa na “kiota chenye joto” kama watu wa dunia hii walivyo wala sijaweza kuwa mchangamfu kama wao wala kuongoza maisha ya burudani. Na kwa sababu ya ukandamizwaji wa joka kubwa jekundu, moyo wangu umepata mateso makubwa na maumivu. Hata hivyo, kwa kuwa nimepitia hali hizi za uchungu, nimepata utajiri wa maisha. Kwa kupitia udhalimu wa joka kubwa jekundu, nilitambua nafsi yangu mwenyewe ya ubinafsi na ya kustahili dharau. Niliona kwamba kwa hakika sikumwamini au kumpenda Mungu. Kupitia uzoefu wangu wa ukandamizaji kutoka kwa joka kubwa jekundu, nilitambua asili yake ya udanganyifu, ya kustahili dharau na ya uovu. Katika hali hiyo nilikuwa na ufahamu zaidi juu ya asili ya haki ya Mungu, uaminifu, mwanga, na wema. Kupitia uzoefu huo wa ukandamizaji na joka kubwa jekundu nilikuja kuitambua imani yangu isiyo dhahiri na isiyo ya hakika na nilielewa maana ya kweli na thamani ya kumwamini Mungu. Kupitia ukandamizaji huo nilipata ufahamu mkubwa zaidi wa hekima ya Mungu na ukuu na matendo Yake ya ajabu, na nikaelewa asili ya ukatili, ya uovu na ya kupinga maendeleo ya joka kubwa jekundu ambayo ina chuki kwa Mungu. Niliona kwa dhahiri jinsi linavyowapotosha watu, kuwadanganya, na kuwadhuru. Kutoka kwa hayo nilikuza chuki kubwa kwalo, na nilikuwa tayari kutegemea maneno ya Mungu ili kutupa tabia potovu ya Shetani, kuweza kulikataa kabisa joka kubwa jekundu, kuishi kama mtu halisi na kuuridhisha moyo wa Mungu. Ilikuwa kazi ya Mungu ya vitendo ambayo imeniruhusu binafsi kuonja karamu hiyo ya fahari ya maisha. Haikuamsha tu moyo wangu ambao ulikuwa umepofushwa kwa muda mrefu na joka kubwa jekundu, lakini iliniruhusu kupata utajiri mwingi mkubwa sana wa maisha, na kabla ya sijalijua nilikuwa nimeingia kwa njia sahihi ya kumwamini Mungu. Ninatoa shukrani za dhati na sifa kwa Mwenyezi Mungu!

2020.07.03 00:10 The_Tran_Dynasty Using this to archive the long text posts I make

Hawai’i:
NOTE: I only have experience with O’ahu and some with Mau’i.
MAU’I:
Ali’i Kula Lavender Farm is beautiful and there’s a scavenger hunt with a prize which was fun. Idk if they still do it since this was from 2015 but it’s still worth checking out.
That’s all I know on Mau’i. On google maps, I starred some other places but I don’t think I remember them or been to those places.
HIKES AND TRAILS:
Ka’ena Point State Park is nice. It’s windy but I think there’s a hiking trail there. Stay away from Waianae, it’s kinda ghetto, or as I heard. Pali Lookout is beautiful, I think there’s a hiking trail if you go onto the stone wall. If you see random trails, then always go on it, even if you have to jump a fence or do anything like that. They’re beautiful and usually better than the ones that you pay for. Never go on those.
An exception is diamond head, it’s a tourist attraction but still fun. I used to go all the time and I remember that there’s a trail off one of the lookouts that you’re not supposed to go to. I remember climbing there with my dad a while ago and finding a cave, where I carved my name in. I wonder if it’s still there...
There’s also Spitting cave. It has a slanted cliff and it has an illusion where it feels like you’re gonna fall off. I think you have to drive into a neighborhood and at the end of it there’s a gate which leads to a trail going to this place.
Koko head is a place that’s well known among locals but not really well known to tourists. It’s basically a bunch of stairs and not much nature.
Makapu’u lighthouse is a nice hike. There’s a lighthouse at the end but it’s always closed.
Halona blowhole lookout is beautiful and you should definitely go.
Tantalus Lookout is pretty and it’s good for a date. I remember seeing a couple set up a table there and having a date in the evening.
RESTAURANTS:
Dole Plantation is one of the more touristy spots but it’s like a Hawaiian theme park. There’s the worlds largest maze (my best time was 25 minutes) and many shops, and Dole Whip is there too.
A nice pit stop on the way to Dole Plantation is Green World Coffee Farms. You get to go through a barn and see the coffee farm at the end.
Aloha stadium swap meet was nice. Lots to explore with a lot of food. KCC farmers market is basically a smaller version of that.
Also if you want good garlic shrimp, go to Romy’s Kahuku. People are either on Romy’s side, or Giovanni’s side. They both hate each other. I’m on Romy’s side, but Giovanni’s is ok. You can choose your side idk.
Vintage cave cafe is my favorite restaurant. The design is super pretty and it’s designed as a super fancy restaurant.
The best Pho in Hawaii is Huong Lan in Chinatown.
After getting pho, go to Nisshodo mochi shop. The best thing there is the chi chi dango, which is dango but colored and wrapped in parchment, displayed in a cute box.
Chocolea in Manoa has the best chocolates, and they come in a cute box in fun shapes.
Waiola shave ice is where everyone gets their shave ice. I remember liking the Lilikoi flavor there.
Rainbow drive in is where you get good hawaiian food, and for the less hawaiiany food, you have to try Zippy’s. It’s a diner with good fries.
Liliha bakery had good cream puffs, and I remember the oxtail soup being good.
Helenas is a more formal Rainbow drive In with more variety of food. They’re both good, I’d say helenas is better.
Maguro bro’s has some of the best seafood in Hawaii. It’s basically comfort food.
Kokohead diner had good bipbimbap. It’s more of a thing you’d eat if you were a local. You shouldn’t waste time as a tourist there, but it has good food.
Bread:
FOR RUSTIC BREADS:
Use a convection oven for crispness
To take it to the next level, you should get a baking stone. Ive heard pizza craft brand is good and that’s the one I use. If you can’t get one then simply take your sheet pan and put it upside down in your cold oven, preheat it, then set a timer for an hour. It’ll get a better crust.
For steaming, I recommend lava rocks which are about $15 on amazon. Put 2 disposable aluminum pie plates (you can reuse it I reused it like 20 times already so it’s fine) filled with lava rocks into the oven on the lowest rack or floor (idk if it matters but I do lowest rack because you can pull the rack out) and preheat it with the baking stone/sheet. 1 minute before you load the bread into the oven, put a towel on the glass door of the open oven, pull the rack out, and pour boiling water into one pie plate until it’s full. Immediately take the towel out and close the door for 1 minute. After that, then turn on the kettle again, load the bread in and do the same thing with boiling water but onto the other pie pan. Spraying the bread before you load it in works too. Steaming the bread prevents the crust from forming before the inside is finished. It also helps with the crust but I forgot how. Take the steamer out 1/3 into cooking since the 2/3 creates the crust.
EDIT: I forgot dutch ovens exist so you can do that too. Just preheat the Dutch oven for 1 hour. Upside down aluminum pans also work for longer breads.
To score the bread, use a curved lame. I’ve heard breadtopia brand is good but you can just put a razor blade onto a skewer I think it works fine but I haven’t tested it yet. The curve creates a flap of dough that becomes crispy when baked. Hold the lame at a 30° angle with the curve facing up and quickly score the bread. For baguettes score it at a sharp angle with only 3-4 scores per loaf. The angle helps the loaf become more oval I think. Do the same for pane francesse and other baguette knockoffs.
For the dough, you can add a tsp of diastatic malt powder (not non-diastatic) which helps with browning and is an enzyme that does something with the gluten strands I think. A tablespoon of vital wheat gluten makes the dough chewier. Also do an autolyse (forgot to mention that in my rant will edit later), which is just the flour + gluten + malt powder and water (subtract like an ounce of water for later) mixed together and rested for 30 minutes - an hour. KAF says 30 minutes works best so do that. It helps the flour hydrate and something happens with the gluten. Add the salt and yeast to the water to help incorporate it. If you’re using a levain then use some of the water to help incorporate then mix the salt with the water to incorporate the salt. Do some slap and folds to incorporate that then do a bulk ferment, which is resting the dough for 2-4 hours and folding it every 30 minutes or so. Folding is taking one edge of the dough with your wet finger or scraper and bringing it to the middle. There’s 4 folds and 8 folds idk which one is better but for 4 folds then take the edge of the dough to the other side, not the middle, and rotate 90° to do it all 4 sides. Folding helps the yeast get more food I think. For 8 folds you take the edge and bring it to the center. Then rotate 45° and keep doing it until you have 8 folds. Idk which one is better I do 8 folds so I guess do that.
You can also use bread salt or mineral salt. Its not that important, but it's basically salty flavor but with not a lot of sodium chloride (regular salt, which slows down yeast), so you get the flavor without slowing down/harming the yeast cells. Idk if this is true, I've heard it from my aunt who bakes professionally, KAF says it feeds the yeast which kinda makes sense bc of minerals. Bakers forums say it strengthens dough. Idk but it benefits the dough I guess.
I get mine from Whole Foods, and it’s in the aisle where you scoop nuts, but it can also be in the salt aisle. It’s under the brand name Redmond. I get the fine table salt because it dissolves easier than kosher salt: https://redmond.life/realsalt/
The health benefits that it claims have no scientific evidence so take it with a grain of salt.
There’s also KAF brand but that costs shipping so idk.
https://shop.kingarthurflour.com/items/artisan-bread-salt-16-oz
The claims about the salt feeding the yeast is probably false. Also take it with a grain of salt.
*not sponsored by Redmond or KAF
After shaping the dough, then do a cold retard. Basically let the dough rest in the fridge in a plastic or garbage bag slightly open in the banneton for 16-24 hours. It lets the gluten relax and idk what it does actually
if you have any questions, go to kingarthurflour.com
They have the answer to anything. When I ask my family members including one that works as the head chef, they don't know the answer.
When I search it up on KAF, somehow there's always a specific article on the topic.
Also there's the bakers hotline idk
If you don’t have a banneton then use a colander with a towel inside. I think it works fine but if you want the lines, then use the banneton but never use the cloth it comes with since it prevents the line formation. I’ve heard wood pulp ones are better but I haven’t tested it for myself yet. For longer doughs that rest in a couche then do the retard before shaping.
If you want to use a preferment then you simply make a mixture of 20% of the total flour weight that’s 1:1 water and AP flour (KAF brand but idk if it matters) with a pinch of yeast. You don’t do this if you’re using a sourdough starter. The starter is your preferment. If you don’t have a sourdough starter, then do the preferment since it adds sourness.
Also instant yeast is better than active dry since it doesn’t contain dead yeast cells. Idk why active dry even exists.
There’s probably more techniques that I know of but I forgot to mention. My recipe is here:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1P3_L8_fXBCzciOnxIOEWGO1dUMQAeBtRC8EgwpdY7_I
FOR SWEET/NON RUSTIC BREADS:
Fresh yeast does produce more Carbon dioxide but it’s such a pain to find and use. You have to use it within the next 2 weeks or so and it dies quickly. I don’t really notice a difference but use double the amount in weight than active dry yeast in your recipe.
You should get instant yeast, or even better SAF gold instant yeast. You don’t need to dissolve it in water and it’s 100% alive cells, as opposed to active dry yeast with a layer of dead cells on the exterior with the alive ones in the center.
SAF gold yeast survives in environments with less moisture since sugar absorbs moisture so it’s good in sweet breads. Regular yeast is slower and takes longer to proof.
Use the tangzhong method. It traps in moisture and in order to do it, take 15-20% of the total dough weight and do a mixture of 1:5 flour to watemilk. Microwave that in 20 second increments and stir it each increment. Keep doing that until it’s a pudding like paste. Add that to the dough along with the autolyse and also subtract the flour and watemilk that you used from the other flour and watemilk in the dough.
For autolyses then also add the egg and butter. If there’s a lot of sugar (like 1/4 cup I guess), then don’t add that until after the autolyse and add it with the salt because it will draw moisture away from the flour and tighten the dough (I think)
If it’s a whole wheat bread, then you can use a soaker to soften the bran. Idk what this exactly does, but I think the bran cuts the gluten strands and affects the crumb of the bread. Basically mix together the whole wheat flour in a 10:9 ratio with the watemilk and let it sit overnight. If it’s milk then refrigerate it. Or you can simply put the whole wheat flour into a sieve to sift it out. People don’t usually do this except in a baguette recipe I saw. Idk if soakers work for rustic breads but I’ve tried and it works so idk.
Folding also helps for sweet breads, too. The 8 fold method is easier in my experience so do that I guess. Same for cold retards.
There’s probably more methods that I know of but I haven’t made sweet breads in a while so I forgot.
Baguettes:
This is late but you should score it more diagonally for better expansion! Here’s a chart.
For a better color you should put 2 13x9 disposable aluminum baking sheets above the baguettes to create steam for the first 1/3 of baking. You can also use lava rocks or a spray bottle too.
It’s a bit hard to tell if the crumb is good or not considering it isn’t lengthwise, but it looks a bit fine.
To replicate the French flour, then you should add some whole wheat flour, I’d say about 1/4 cup. Sift it to get rid of the bran which is bitter.
To get a more rustic crumb, then you should try your best to not deflate any of the air bubbles, create a cylinder of air (if that makes sense) while shaping the baguettes, and you should let the baguettes rest after each step.
Also taper the ends of the baguettes which is just simply putting pressure on your pinkies at the end. You don’t have to, but it makes them burnt and crispy.
I think you should also get a linen towel as opposed to that one, and make sure that it’s a dark color, so you can judge how much flour to use.
Also how do you knead your dough? Do you do a bulk ferment or do you knead it, let it rest, and then shape it? You should do a bulk ferment to get more rusticness. Bulk ferment is basically folding the dough every 15-30 minutes or so over the span of 2-4 hours. It gets rid of needing to knead the dough and it gives flavor.
You should also let it rest in the fridge either before or after shaping, depending on how big your fridge is. Let it rest for about 16 hours or so, and it’ll let the gluten relax or something.
Baking stones/steels are expensive so if you can’t get one, then put a sheet pan upside down on the oven, preheat it for an hour, and use the other sheet pan to slide the baguettes onto that one. It’ll give a better crust.
Edit: I forgot the most important part! Add like a teaspoon of diastatic malt powder. The enzymes do something to the gluten and it makes the baguettes more colorful! I add it to all of my rustic breads.
Edit 2: also use an autolyse! It’s just the flour, malt powder (since that comes from barley wheat plant) and water (minus like an ounce) mixed together and rested for 30 minutes. Later dissolve the yeast into half of the water, incorporate into dough, then do the same but with the salt 25 min later. You can do yeast and salt at the same time, idk if it makes a difference.
NOTE FOR ME IN FUTURE: remove autolyse, and add coil folds. also note 25% rise

2020.07.02 22:58 zippwatermerchant Question about authenticity/quality of Russian gear from greyshop, Kula, Zuta, etc.

Hi, I'm currently in the market for a quality plate carrier. Most of the American stuff sold stateside is sold out right now with long wait times, but I've noticed that Russians make some quality looking carriers, many of which are copies of western kit. I've been doing research trying to find how authentic some of the stuff is.
To be clear, I'm asking this on this sub because most of my google searches gave results from here, but I'm not planning on using this for airsoft, it's for if SHTF (don't need your opinion on that).

Most discussion I saw here seems to parrot the sentiment that "grey shop sells overpriced reproduction garbage" and to buy from ZutaTheFox or his shop outpost armories instead.

Here's what I don't understand- many of the plate carriers are sold by both shops and look identical, and on grey shop it specifies that some of the carriers are made by companies that provide gear for the Russian army like ANA or SSO SPN. Are they lying? Are these actually cheap reproductions? And if so, doesn't that mean that Zuta is selling the same stuff? I have the same question about what Kula Tactical sells, or any other shops you might know of.
Basically a lot of you guys seem to understand gear and their origins and quality, so I'd greatly appreciate any advice on which website to buy an authentic or at very least quality Russian plate carrier.

Thank you in advance.

2020.06.19 11:06 Akinzekeel [PlayStation?][2000] A puzzle-solving game where you play as a die

So I have this memory of a game I played a long time ago and I just cannot find anything about it. I don't remember which platform (though my guess is that it was a PlayStation/PS2 game or perhaps a Genesis game, though I tend to think it was disk-based). A rough estimate of the year would be 2000 - 2005.
IIRC the graphics were isometric / 2.5D. You control a six-sided die along a path around something like a board-game board except that the path would sometimes branch out. There was a lot of design / decoration on these boards too and each board featured a certain theme. Sometimes you would need to land on a field with a specific number on your die so you would need to backtrack a bit and re-orient the die in order to get the correct number on a given field.
Edit: I checked gameplay videos and can confirm it was not among these suggested games: Devil Dice, No one can stop Mr Domino, Bombastic, Intelligent Cube, Kula World. I am very surprised at how active this sub is though and thank you all for your comments so far. I did also Google games with dice on PlayStation and wasn't able to find the game among the results - so perhaps we are looking at the wrong console after all. I'm just not sure what other console it could have been. Maybe it was Dreamcast? 🤔
Edit 2: I stumbled across a similar (but different and more modern) game. Just to give you an idea of what the game looked like https://www.video-games-museum.com/en/game/Voodoo-Dice/109/2/48278 basically imagine this game but older

  • We open with the death of Davey Boy Smith, who passed away while on vacation in Fairmont, BC this week. Autopsy reports are pending but the cause of death is believed to be a heart attack stemming from a drug overdose. Smith was no longer a member of the Hart family, as he had divorced Diana Hart and was now dating Bruce Hart's ex-wife Andrea (whom he was on vacation with when he died). But he was still considered by many of the Harts to be part of the family and Dave says the Hart family tragedies are similar to the seemingly-cursed Von Erichs. Details are sketchy, but word Dave has is that Smith likely suffered a heart attack in his sleep and choked to death on his own vomit, similar to the way Louie Spicolli passed away. Dave talks about Smith's past drug issues, including a crippling morphine addiction that landed him in rehab on several occasions and led to multiple overdoses and caused his in-ring career to fizzle out in recent years after WWE released him. Dave recaps Smith's career, starting with the British Bulldogs tag team with Dynamite Kid, marrying into the Hart family, working in Japan, returning to WWF, falling out with Dynamite, the Summerslam 92 match with Bret Hart at Wembley Stadium, big singles run and star in Europe, his steroid use, his WCW run, the Hart Foundation, leaving after the Screwjob, WCW again, the crippling back injury he suffered there, WWF again, drug issues, body breaking down, and his life pretty much spiraling out of control the last few years with drugs, drama, and arrests and finally, this. Despite all the huge contracts he signed during his career, Smith was nearly broke at the time of his death. His final matches were for Top Rope Championship Wrestling, teaming with his 16-year-old son Harry on some of their indie shows. Smith's death was mainstream news in both Canada and the UK, though it wasn't as big a story in the U.S. On Raw, they did open the show with a nice tribute to him. There are rumors floating around now that Smith was returning to WWE soon. Dave says it's a nice story and there's no reason for WWE to deny it now, so they won't. But given the state he was in and all his recent issues, there was zero chance he was going to be rehired anytime soon.
WATCH: WWE tribute to Davey Boy Smith
  • Judgment Day, the first PPV of the "WWE" era is in the books, and saw Undertaker win the WWE title from Hulk Hogan, which was pretty much the plan from the moment Hogan beat Triple H for it a month ago. Despite huge pops in most arenas, Hogan's month-reign as champion saw TV ratings continue to fall and business continue to plummet, though Dave says most of the blame for that is on the company, not Hogan. Hogan hasn't been the one writing shitty TV for a year. Edge vs. Kurt Angle in the hair vs. hair match was the highlight of the show, for the second PPV in a row, and probably the best WWE match of the year so far and Dave gives Angle a ton of credit for elevating Edge and helping get him over as a top star here and says it's the best star-making job since Triple H and Mick Foley feuded several years ago, in which Foley basically busted his ass to make Triple H. And speaking of, Triple H vs. Jericho in the Hell in a Cell was very good but people are so used to crazy shit like Mick Foley falling from the roof that it's hard to live up to the expectations people have for that match now.
  • Other notes from the PPV: for the second time in as one week, WWE promised a huge surprise, only to reveal a letdown when Rikishi's heavily hyped mystery tag partner against Billy and Chuck ended up being...Rico. These days, when you tease a big surprise, fans are expecting a debuting Goldberg or Steiner or a returning Shawn Michaels or something. There's too many big names and free agents floating around out there to have Rico be your big mystery reveal. RVD vs. Eddie Guerrero was fine, but disappointing and Dave thinks RVD's window to break through to the top of the card is rapidly closing after he was so hot just a few months ago. Trish vs. Stacy was just background for a D-Von vs. Bubba Ray feud and Dave thinks its way too early for inter-brand matches. At one point, Deacon Batista bodyslammed Trish for Stacy to cover, but Trish kicked out, which doesn't exactly make Batista look like the monster they're pushing him as. Then Bubba Ray fought both of them off, again making Batista look pretty weak. Loud "Goldberg" chants during the Lesnar match. During the Triple H/Jericho HIAC match, Dave talks about referee Tim White taking the best bump of the match, off the apron into the cage (he doesn't seem to be aware yet that the bump was legit and it fucked up White's shoulder so bad that he ended up having to retire as a referee, which led to the Lunchtime Suicides, but that's another story for another day). And finally, UndertakeHogan was as awful as you'd expect and Dave says you have to go back years to find a WWF PPV main event match this bad.
  • Former FMW president Shoichi Arai was found dead at a park in Tokyo from an apparent suicide at age 36. He had hung himself with a necktie. Arai had gotten into deep financial trouble over the last year or so in an effort to keep FMW afloat and he owed money to countless people (Dave doesn't appear to know yet, but the primary portion of that debt was to the Yakuza and this suicide attempt was an effort to protect his family, so they could use the life insurance money to pay off his debts. It still wasn't enough, and his family ended up spending years paying off the remaining balance). When FMW started bouncing checks, Arai went into hiding and hasn't been seen much lately. Arai was working on a book about the business that he hoped to publish in order to pay off some debts (the book later came out, you can find English translations online with a quick google). Arai's wife had also recently left him and taken the children. A suicide note, postmarked the day before, was found by police. Dave recaps Arai's history in the business, leading up to him taking over FMW from Atsushi Onita in 1995 but the company floundered when Onita left in 1998 and was doomed when Hayabusa got paralyzed last year. Although he wanted to, FMW and Arai was unable to pay Hayabusa's hospital bills due to the company's mounting debt, leaving Hayabusa on the hook for all the medical costs of his career ending injury.
  • Obituary for George Gordienko, a Winnipeg (you idiot!) wrestler from the 1940s-70s who died at age 74. I've literally never heard of this dude, but of course, Dave knows his whole damn life story and career history. HOW?! Anyway, this dude was regarded as one of the toughest guys in wrestling history, with even legendary tough guys like Lou Thesz, Stu Hart, and Verne Gagne respecting that you don't fuck with Gordienko. He could have been one of the top stars in the history of wrestling, but while attending college at the University of Minnesota during the height of the Cold War, he was arrested for handing out pro-communism pamphlets and was deported back to his native Canada, never allowed to return to the U.S. again. He spent the majority of his career wrestling everywhere else in the world, especially Canada and Europe, but it crippled his ability to become a true top star in the industry. He later distanced himself from Communism, saying he just made some friends who were involved so he dabbled in it a bit but never really was that political in general. Thesz wanted to drop the NWA title to Gordienko in 1956 but even Sam Muchnick's political connections couldn't get him back in the country so it never happened (and Dave doubts they would have put the title on someone with the "communist" stigma surrounding him anyway).
  • Raw this week was the lowest rated non-holiday episode of the show in more than 4 years, dating back to March of 1998. The total audience from the peak of the Monday Night Wars 3 years ago has dropped a full 61% since then. That's insane when you look at it like that. WCW died, WWE's product kinda turned to shit, and almost 2/3 of the wrestling fans that watched in 1999 no longer watch. Staggering to see how far the business collapsed in such a short time from the heights it was at.
  • There's rumors that Dory Funk Jr. is heading to WWC to do a program with Carlos Colon. This leads Dave to mention that, of all the wrestlers who claimed they would never go back to that promotion after Bruiser Brody was murdered, Dory lasted the longest. Well, except Stan Hansen, who stuck to his word and never went back. But otherwise, all the other people who claimed they'd never work there again ended up returning eventually and now it looks like Dory, the final holdout, is going to do the same (he does, but not here. This doesn't happen yet. But eventually, in 2005, Dory does indeed return to WWC to work some matches with Colon).
  • There is still interest in Japan in getting AJPW back on television before the end of the year. And if Riki Choshu ends up going here (after his recent departure from NJPW), it would make for an even stronger package for the TV networks. The company is currently in talks with Fuji Network there about starting on their network after the baseball season ends.
  • There's lots of talk that Motoko Baba will retire from AJPW and leave it in Keiji Muto's hands following the 30th anniversary show later this year. Ever since Great Baba died, there has been talks that she was hoping to keep the company alive through the 30th year anniversary and then she might step down (yup, this is pretty much what happens. We'll get there).
  • There's talk of doing a Chyna vs. women's wrestler Shinobu Kandori match at the October NJPW Tokyo Dome show. Dave is skeptical because a big issue Chyna had in WWF was that she didn't want to wrestle women anymore, only men. When WWA recently made her an offer, Chyna said under no circumstances would she wrestle for them for any price, presumably against women, so that deal fell apart. So it'll be interesting if Chyna will face Kandori. (Nope. She sticks to her guns. Only wants to face men, so she ends up facing Masa Chono on that show. But we'll get there).
  • Toru Yano, a former amateur wrestling champion, made his NJPW debut, losing in the opening match. Yano is 24 and is a highly decorated amateur wrestler including winning the Japanese collegiate national championships, which is Japan's equivalent to the NCAA championship Brock Lesnar won in America. Dave lists several other championships he's won. Because, obviously, Yano was already the true ace long before he came to NJPW.
  • Dave has seen the tape of the Chono vs. Misawa dream match from the recent Tokyo Dome show and.....eh. Misawa was clearly the crowd favorite, which was a surprise given that it's a NJPW show, but Misawa drew the crowd. Match went to a 30 minute draw and Dave thinks it was a disappointment, only giving it 2.25 stars. These two guys just aren't capable of having classic 30-minute long singles matches anymore with their shape their bodies are in and all the injuries they've had over the years.
  • Former ECW wrestler Big Dick Dudley passed away this week at age 34 from apparent kidney failure. Dave acknowledges that this newsletter is becoming almost nothing but obituaries lately, which is probably a sign that something is wrong in this business. Anyway, Dave recaps his brief career and notes that XPW had a big tribute to him on their TV show.
  • We get another obit for a Crockett-era jobber from the 80s named Ben Alexander, dead from a stroke at 51. The obits keep coming. Are we done yet? Nope....
  • One last obituary for Eric Kulas, better known as Mass Transit, who was involved in one of the ugliest incidents in modern wrestling history at an ECW show in 1996 with the Mass Transit Incident. Kulas passed away at age 22, cause of death still TBD, but he's been in poor health for awhile. Dave recaps the Mass Transit incident, in which a 17-year-old Kulas lied about his age, got onto an ECW show, and got butchered by New Jack. After the incident, Kulas and his family filed criminal charges against New Jack, but lost. So then they filed a civil suit against New Jack, Paul Heyman, ECW, and several other defendants. Those all got dismissed except for the civil suit against New Jack, which is still pending but probably not going to go anywhere now that Kulas is dead. Following what happened, Kulas swore he was done with wrestling, but he ended up using his notoriety to work a handful of indie matches in later years.
  • As reported before, NWA-TNA has had talks with former WCW announcer Scott Hudson, as well as Mike Tenay, about being lead commentators for the new promotion. They're also looking to use a guy named "Dan West" (close enough), who is a former Home Shopping Network host who has something of a cult following as a good hard-sell guy. Eric Bischoff had interest in bringing in West back when it looked like the Fusient/WCW deal was going to happen.
  • Vince Russo is definitely involved with this new promotion. Dave doesn't know how official it is, or what capacity, but as of a few days ago, Russo was definitely involved in creative and pitching ideas. Jeff Jarrett was recently interviewed by Dave and Bryan on the Observer Live show and continued to claim Russo isn't involved due to his ongoing lawsuit with Time Warner over the Hogan/Bash at the Beach 2000 incident. But Dave isn't buying it and has it on good authority that Russo is absolutely involved in some way (proven true soon after).
  • Speaking of, tickets for NWA-TNA's first show in Huntsville are moving extremely slowly. As of press time (about 3 weeks before the show), less than 300 tickets have been sold and there are still front row ringside seats available. Not a great sign.
  • UK boxing promoter Frank Warren made some comments about how UFC fighters wouldn't last 5 minutes with any trained boxer. Dana White responded, telling Warren to put anyone in his stable, including WBO champion Joe Calzaghe or Ricky Hatton to accept the challenge and Dana will take a UFC fighter of the same weight and put them against each other. I mean, yeah, Dana's clearly right here. Boxing and MMA are two wildly different skill-sets and in a boxing match or an MMA fight, the advantage is going to go to the person more comfortable fighting under those rules. But if you take a boxer and a UFC fighter and just put them in a pit with no rules and say fight to the death, that boxer is getting murdered.
  • WWE is trying to set up a meeting with Vince McMahon and Goldberg in an attempt to hammer out a deal. WWE asked for the meeting but as of yet, Goldberg hasn't accepted. He realizes he's kinda in the driver's seat here, because they need him way more than he needs them. WWE officials have been calling Goldberg on a pretty much daily basis and he's playing hard to get. He was invited to attend a TV taping nearby but he declined. He asked that Vince comes to him in Atlanta to negotiate a deal rather than he go to Vince in Connecticut. So that's the kind of mind games they're all playing here. Those close to Goldberg say he's still more interested in working with PRIDE and NJPW than he is WWE. That being said, Dave talks to a lot of people in the MMA world and nobody is taking the Goldberg/PRIDE rumors seriously because everyone recognizes how badly that would go for him and no one believes he's dumb enough to actually do it.
  • Kevin Nash and X-Pac threw a fit at Raw last week about what the NWO was scripted to do. Vince wasn't there for the show (he was directing the pre-taped Austin/Guerrero angle on-location away from the arena) and they didn't like what was booked for them. Nash reportedly threw a tantrum about it and managed to get the script changed. The original script called for X-Pac to lose twice in different tag matches on the show featuring the NWO but that ended up being scrapped at Nash's demand. Nash hasn't been happy for several weeks. Remember a few weeks ago when Nash returned to TV after being out injured and they showed him getting out of a limo backstage and then.....nothing else? He was supposed to come out later in that show and cut a promo and they ended up scrapping it due to time constraints, meaning Nash flew to whatever city they were in and showed up to Raw for pretty much no reason, only to be shown for 10 seconds getting out of a car. So he was pissed about that. And last week, he was already at the airport checking his bags when he got a call saying he wouldn't be used and was sent back home. (I mean, to be fair to Nash, in a world where the travel is so grueling and takes up so much of your time, that kinda shit is pretty inexcusable. I'd be pissed too). And even though everyone, even Nash, recognizes that firing Scott Hall was the right move, Nash wasn't happy about how they explained it on TV. The NWO is supposed to be portrayed as some kind of outsider group that doesn't obey the rules, so for Flair to have the authority to just fire him in kayfabe doesn't make any sense. Again, kinda hard to fault Nash here. He's right.
  • Notes from Raw: Dave calls it another show in WWE's attempt to become WCW as fast as they possibly can. He says they're making all the same mistakes. The show opened with a great UndertakeRVD angle, but Dave says that was pretty much the peak. It was all downhill from there. After just starting the angle last week, Molly Holly and Regal are already an on-screen couple and Dave complains that they skipped about a million storytelling steps in the middle in getting to that point. Just lazy writing. Tommy Dreamer was at a barber shop eating hair. X-Pac, Booker T, and Big Show argued over who the leader of the NWO is. They did an angle where Flair ordered Austin home for the night and with the assurance that Austin was done for the night, ratings immediately plummeted for the rest of the show. But even though he was done for the live crowd, they filmed several segments of Austin and Eddie Guerrero in a bar that ultimately led to a brawl. Dave doesn't know why they insist on taking guys with known alcohol issues (Hall and now Guerrero) and putting them in angles involving alcohol. Is it some kind of shitty test or something? Anyway, Guerrero smashed a beer bottle on Austin's head and it led to a whole big thing. And finally, Undertaker beat RVD in a bad match to close the show and Dave says RVD's in-ring work is looking worse and worse lately.
  • Notes from Smackdown: they opened with Edge confronting Triple H, which later led to a tag team match. Dave doesn't know yet if Edge is the right guy to be pushing as a top star, but they gotta start pushing somebody new and at least they're trying. So it's something. Anyway, in other news, it only took 2 weeks for OVW's Leviathan to become a laughable cartoon as Deacon Batista here on the main roster. Obvious fake crowd noise during the D-Von match with Batista at ringside. Despite the falling ratings, Hogan is still massively popular with live crowds and the pop he got coming out here was unreal, with Dave calling it one of the top 5 biggest reactions he's ever seen (though not quite as big as the night after Wrestlemania pop in Montreal). And the tag team main event was good, with Edge showing that he's much better in the ring than Triple H, who hasn't been very good at all since returning from his injury.
  • More details on the Plane Ride From Hell. There's strong suspicion that many of the wrestlers were "H-bombed" as they call it. (In other words, someone put halcion pills in people's drinks without their knowledge). That was a common "prank" back in the day but not so much these days. Anyway, Goldust hasn't been fired but he was reprimanded for his actions (getting drunk and singing love songs to ex-wife Terri over the intercom, to her extreme discomfort). He was also punished for allegedly spitting tobacco juice all over one of the plane's seats. Brock Lesnar was not punished, because they felt like he was put in a tough position and was only defending himself against Curt Hennig's provocations. So the rumor that Lesnar losing to the Hardyz last week was punishment isn't true. It was just dumb booking. The flight had an open bar and also was delayed leaving, so most of the wrestlers were already shitfaced before they even left the ground. In the future, drinks are expected to be limited on international flights. Most of the problems here took place during the first half of the flight. By the end, everyone was pretty much calm and passed out.
  • Former ECW wrestler Nova, in his OVW debut, captured the OVW title from Prototype. This was done as a change of plans because Leviathan getting called up to the main roster with no notice screwed up all of Jim Cornette's original booking. Anyway, OVW is moving its tapings to a new building soon which will seat 600 people (as opposed to the 140 they fit into their current building for TV tapings).
WATCH: Nova vs. Prototype for the OVW title, filmed with a potato
  • Despite what he's been saying, WWE is going with the assumption that Kurt Angle is not going to wrestle in the 2004 Olympics. Dave says they're going to try to convince him to stay with WWE, but they've given him their blessing to pursue it if he wants. But they're still hopeful to change his mind. With Rock leaving, and Undertaker, Triple H, and Austin all banged up, they really don't want to lose Angle right now.
  • DDP underwent more exams this week and he has several severely messed up vertebrae. His neck is actually worse than both Austin's and Benoit's were when they had surgery. And it's worse because DDP is also 46 years old. He needs surgery and has been told by multiple doctors that he needs to retire.
  • Random notes: Scott Hall's ex-wife Dana is attempting to get custody of their children following Hall's latest antics and firing from WWE. After he was booed on Canadian house shows last week, there's already talk of turning Randy Orton heel. In his first match under the new gimmick, Deacon Batista ripped his pants during a match with Hugh Morrus at a house show, which resulted in the crowd laughing through the end of the match. But it happened again the next night at another house show, leading Dave to think it may have been a planned spot. In which case....what are they doing to this poor guy? (eh, it works out for him okay in the end).
  • There was a story about a stuntman who got a tooth knocked out by accident while working with Rock on Scorpion King. In return, Rock bought the stuntman a gold and diamond studded Rolex as an apology. After that happened, all the other stuntmen began claiming injuries and Rock bought several of them gifts before he eventually realized he was being worked. But he reportedly took it in stride and wasn't upset.
  • Still no negotiations with Scott Steiner. WWE wants to sign people to a minimum of 2-year deals and Vince McMahon doesn't believe Steiner's body will hold up to a WWE schedule for that long and doesn't want to waste money on someone that won't be able to perform at the level they want.
  • Gene Okerlund will be hosting the new WWE Confidential show. It said to be more of a behind-the-scenes show, but with Okerlund hosting, Dave expects it to be campy and goofy. The first episode will feature Shawn Michaels talking about the Montreal Screwjob. Dave finds that funny, since just a few months ago, Vince McMahon was doing interviews saying only hardcore internet fans even remember or care about what happened that night.
NEXT WEDNESDAY: more on the death of Davey Boy Smith, the debut of WWE Confidential and Shawn Michaels admitting he was in on the Screwjob for the first time, Chris Benoit returns, and more...

Verse of the Day : Bhagavad-gita As It Is -- 1.43
*Please write answer to the questions in comments*
उत्सन्नकुलधर्माणां मनुष्याणां जनार्दन नरके नियतं वासो भवतीत्यनुश्रुश्रुम ४३
utsanna-kula-dharmāṇāṁ manuṣyāṇāṁ janārdana narake niyataṁ vāso bhavatīty anuśuśruma
SYNONYMS
utsanna—spoiled; kula-dharmāṇām—of those who have the family traditions; manuṣyāṇām—of such men; janārdana—O Kṛṣṇa; narake—in hell; niyatam—always; vāsaḥ—residence; bhavati—it so becomes; iti—thus; anuśuśruma—I have heard by disciplic succession.
TRANSLATION
O Kṛṣṇa, maintainer of the people, I have heard by disciplic succession that those who destroy family traditions dwell always in hell.
PURPORT
Arjuna bases his argument not on his own personal experience, but on what he has heard from the authorities. That is the way of receiving real knowledge. One cannot reach the real point of factual knowledge without being helped by the right person who is already established in that knowledge. There is a system in the varṇāśrama institution by which one has to undergo the process of ablution before death for his sinful activities. One who is always engaged in sinful activities must utilize the process of ablution called the prāyaścitta.

Verse of the Day : Bhagavad-gita As It Is -- 1.43
*Please write answer to the questions in comments*
उत्सन्नकुलधर्माणां मनुष्याणां जनार्दन नरके नियतं वासो भवतीत्यनुश्रुश्रुम ४३
utsanna-kula-dharmāṇāṁ manuṣyāṇāṁ janārdana narake niyataṁ vāso bhavatīty anuśuśruma
SYNONYMS
utsanna—spoiled; kula-dharmāṇām—of those who have the family traditions; manuṣyāṇām—of such men; janārdana—O Kṛṣṇa; narake—in hell; niyatam—always; vāsaḥ—residence; bhavati—it so becomes; iti—thus; anuśuśruma—I have heard by disciplic succession.
TRANSLATION
O Kṛṣṇa, maintainer of the people, I have heard by disciplic succession that those who destroy family traditions dwell always in hell.
PURPORT
Arjuna bases his argument not on his own personal experience, but on what he has heard from the authorities. That is the way of receiving real knowledge. One cannot reach the real point of factual knowledge without being helped by the right person who is already established in that knowledge. There is a system in the varṇāśrama institution by which one has to undergo the process of ablution before death for his sinful activities. One who is always engaged in sinful activities must utilize the process of ablution called the prāyaścitta. Without doing so, one surely will be transferred to hellish planets to undergo miserable lives as the result of sinful activities.

दोषैरेतै कुलघ्नानां वर्णसड्करकारकै: उत्साद्यन्ते जातिधर्माः कुलधर्माश्र्च शाश्र्वताः ४२

doṣair etaiḥ kula-ghnānāṁ varṇa-saṅkara-kārakaiḥ utsādyante jāti-dharmāḥ kula-dharmāś ca śāśvatāḥ

SYNONYMS
doṣaiḥ—by such faults; etaiḥ—all these; kula-ghnānām—of the destroyer of a family; varṇa-saṅkara—unwanted children; kārakaiḥ—by the doers; utsādyante—causes devastation; jāti-dharmāḥ—community project; kula-dharmāḥ—family tradition; ca—also; śāśvatāḥ—eternal.

TRANSLATION
Due to the evil deeds of the destroyers of family tradition, all kinds of community projects and family welfare activities are devastated.

PURPORT
The four orders of human society, combined with family welfare activities as they are set forth by the institution of the sanātana-dharma or varṇāśrama-dharma, are designed to enable the human being to attain his ultimate salvation. Therefore, the breaking of the sanātana-dharma tradition by irresponsible leaders of society brings about chaos in that society, and consequently people forget the aim of life—Viṣṇu. Such leaders are called blind, and persons who follow such leaders are sure to be led into chaos.
Question 1 : What is the main aim of human life? Why people forget it ?

सड्करो नरकायैव कुलघ्नानां कुलस्य च पतन्ति पितरो ह्येषां लुप्तपिण्डोदकक्रियाः ४१
saṅkaro narakāyaiva kula-ghnānāṁ kulasya ca patanti pitaro hy eṣāṁ lupta-piṇḍodaka-kriyāḥ

SYNONYMS
saṅkaraḥ—such unwanted children; narakāya—for hellish life; eva—certainly; kula-ghnānām—of those who are killers of the family; kulasya—of the family; ca—also; patanti—fall down; pitaraḥ—forefathers; hi—certainly; eṣām—of them; lupta—stopped; piṇḍa—offerings; udaka—water; kriyāḥ—performance.
TRANSLATION
When there is increase of unwanted population, a hellish situation is created both for the family and for those who destroy the family tradition. In such corrupt families, there is no offering of oblations of food and water to the ancestors.
PURPORT
According to the rules and regulations of fruitive activities, there is a need to offer periodical food and water to the forefathers of the family. This offering is performed by worship of Viṣṇu, because eating the remnants of food offered to Viṣṇu can deliver one from all kinds of sinful actions. Sometimes the forefathers may be suffering from various types of sinful reactions, and sometimes some of them cannot even acquire a gross material body and are forced to remain in subtle bodies as ghosts. Thus, when remnants of prasādam food are offered to forefathers by descendants, the forefathers are released from ghostly or other kinds of miserable life. Such help rendered to forefathers is a family tradition, and those who are not in devotional life are required to perform such rituals. One who is engaged in the devotional life is not required to perform such actions. Simply by performing devotional service, one can deliver hundreds and thousands of forefathers from all kinds of misery. It is stated in the Bhāgavatam: devarṣi-bhūtāpta-nṛnāṁ pitṝṇāṁna kiṅkaro nāyamṛṇī ca rājansarvātmanā yaḥ śaraṇaṁ śaraṇyaṁgato mukundaṁ parihṛtya kartam "Anyone who has taken shelter of the lotus feet of Mukunda, the giver of liberation, giving up all kinds of obligation, and has taken to the path in all seriousness, owes neither duties nor obligations to the demigods, sages, general living entities, family members, humankind or forefathers." (Bhāg. 11.5.41) Such obligations are automatically fulfilled by performance of devotional service to the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
Question 1 : What kind of family traditions Arjuna is referring to in this verse ? Do devotees have to follow such traditions ?

अधर्माभिभवात्कृष्ण प्रदुष्यन्ति कुलस्त्रियः स्त्रीषु दुष्टासु वार्ष्णेय जायते वर्णसड्करः ४०
adharmābhibhavāt kṛṣṇa praduṣyanti kula-striyaḥ strīṣu duṣṭāsu vārṣṇeya jāyate varṇa-saṅkaraḥ
SYNONYMS
Sadharma—irreligion; abhibhavāt—having been predominant; kṛṣṇa—O Kṛṣṇa; praduṣyanti—become polluted; kula-striyaḥ—family ladies; strīṣu —of the womanhood; duṣṭāsu—being so polluted; vārṣṇeya—O descendant of Vṛṣṇi; jāyate—it so becomes; varṇa-saṅkaraḥ—unwanted progeny.

TRANSLATION
When irreligion is prominent in the family, O Kṛṣṇa, the women of the family become corrupt, and from the degradation of womanhood, O descendant of Vṛṣṇi, comes unwanted progeny.
PURPORT
Good population in human society is the basic principle for peace, prosperity and spiritual progress in life. The varṇāśrama religion's principles were so designed that the good population would prevail in society for the general spiritual progress of state and community. Such population depends on the chastity and faithfulness of its womanhood. As children are very prone to be misled, women are similarly very prone to degradation. Therefore, both children and women require protection by the elder members of the family. By being engaged in various religious practices, women will not be misled into adultery. According to Cāṇakya Paṇḍit, women are generally not very intelligent and therefore not trustworthy. So, the different family traditions of religious activities should always engage them, and thus their chastity and devotion will give birth to a good population eligible for participating in the varṇāśrama system. On the failure of such varṇāśrama-dharma, naturally the women become free to act and mix with men, and thus adultery is indulged in at the risk of unwanted population. Irresponsible men also provoke adultery in society, and thus unwanted children flood the human race at the risk of war and pestilence.

SYNONYMS
kula-kṣaye—in destroying the family; praṇaśyanti—becomes vanquished; kula-dharmāḥ—the family traditions; sanātanāḥ—eternal; dharme—in religion; naṣṭe—being destroyed; kulam—family; kṛtsnam—wholesale; adharmaḥ—irreligious; abhibhavati—transforms; uta—it is said.

With the destruction of dynasty, the eternal family tradition is vanquished, and thus the rest of the family becomes involved in irreligious practice.
PURPORT
In the system of the varṇāśrama institution there are many principles of religious traditions to help members of the family grow properly and attain spiritual values. The elder members are responsible for such purifying processes in the family, beginning from birth to death. But on the death of the elder members, such family traditions of purification may stop, and the remaining younger family members may develop irreligious habits and thereby lose their chance for spiritual salvation. Therefore, for no purpose should the elder members of the family be slain.
Question 1 : What are the responsibilities of elder members of a family ?
Question 2 : Why it is important to follow the system of varṇāśrama institution ?
