The external is the creation of the internal. Brahmam
manifested itself as the Universe. God created the
world; the world conferred the glory of 'Creator' on
God. Through his yearning, imagination and intensi-
ty man endowed God with a form and name, and a
bunch of attributes from which he hopes to benefit.
But, God is above and beyond human traits and
characteristics known as Gunas. Krishna told Arjuna
in the Bhagavad Gita, "I have no need to engage
Myself in any activity. But yet, I am busy acting, in
order to promote the well-being of the Universe." The
Gita refers to its chapters as Yoga. Yoga means
union of the Self with its source. How do the eighteen
chapters, each a Yoga, help man to fulfill his destiny?
The Gita provides the answer: "Samathvam Yogam
Uchyathe" (Yoga is being in a state of equal-minded-
ness or equanimity).
What is the relation between
the Creator and His Creation?
What message should we take
from the Creator to get closer
to Him? Bhagawan lovingly
reminds us today.
Fortune is as much a challenge to one's
equanimity as misfortune. - Baba0914033

Anthony Low, the owner of Sing
Chong Supermarket says China s ever-
growing acquisitions of global meat,
dairy and processed food to satisfy
her population has been driving up
food prices worldwide.
Smithfield Farms, the largest pork-
producing farm in the USA, was sold
in 2013 to China.
Speaking to the Sunday Guardian
from his office on Charlotte Street,
Port-of-Spain, Low said, "With over
one billion mouths to feed, their taste
for these commodities, they're out-
sourcing us and we cannot compete
"T&T doesn't have the resources.
When we buy one container, China
buys 100, driving prices up.
"Pork, beef, ox-tail, goat and lamb
have increased by at least 40 to 50 per
"Beef trimmings or mince meat from
Australia cost US $1.26 per lb two years
ago and today, we're paying US $2.15
before charges and freight."
"Most of the food was imported,
down to green fig which comes from
Grenada and St Vincent."
He said last week, green fig sold for
$4 per lb while in his time, they went
for a penny. Dasheen and sweet pota-
toes are now being sold at $7 per lb,
and eddoes from the islands are now
priced at $12 a lb.
Low said people's tastes and lifestyles
have changed. Meat, which was eaten
once a week on Sundays, is now con-
sumed every day.
Low: Challenge for
consumers to stretch dollar
Low's son, Christopher, said it was
very challenging for many people to
stretch their dollar. Salt beef, pigtail,
corned beef and salt fish, considered
long ago as "poor people food," have
all risen in price.
He said whether due to international
pressures or supply and demand, the
cheapest tin of corned beef cost $10
up to $18, condensed milk ranged from
$5 to $10.
He said people used to buy a lot more
fish for Lent, now salt salmon goes for
$70 per lb. Tuna and wild salmon have
also got expensive worldwide because
Xtra Foods alternate brands,
renegotiate prices with suppliers
Daniel Austin, the marketing man-
ager of Xtra Foods Supermarkets, said
the company's solution to high food
prices was to source alternate brands
and renegotiate prices with suppliers.
He said this was in keeping with the
supermarket's philosophy to serve all its customers
of all income groups by offering them a wide variety
of products as possible.
Austin said customers had many alternate brands
of even basic food items such as oil, rice, sugar and
flour to choose wisely from.
He said while eggs, butter and milk were always
stable, milk was highly competitive because of price
reductions, specials and new brands on the market.
Austin's advice to shoppers was to always look at
all the brands they carried and choose those that
suit their pockets.
He said coupled with a fast turnover and low prices,
...Pork, beef, oxtail, goat, lamb go up by 40 to 50 per cent
