An Introduction to the Work
In The Light of Truth : The Grail Message
brought to you by Alexander Bernhardt Publishing - USA
This work conveys to the reader an insight into the working of the Laws
of Nature and of Creation. In a comprehensive manner the author
describes the working of the different Laws which are interwoven right
up to the finest ramifications. As an example, the effect of a grain of corn
bringing forth a multiple harvest of corn follows a pattern according to
the laws. However, this principle of nature is not restricted to the world
of plants alone, but the lawful effects also return to the human being as a
consequence of the thoughts and deeds generated by him. Man harvests
many times over from the seed which arises from his volition, and such a
harvest can then bring him joy or sorrow.

Over the years, the Consular Corps
have been able to raise close to
$600,000 for local charities through
its annual International Food Festival
This was revealed by the Honorary
Consulate for Lebanon and Dean of
Consular Corps, Amer Haidar.
This year s food festival promises to
be a mouth-watering culinary event
and to raise more funds as compared
to the years before. Haidar told the
T&T Guardian that in the first year the
consular corps were able to raise
$160,000, "The second year, $235,000
and the third year about $250,000."
Some of the charities the Consular
Corps have supported include the Chil-
dren s Life Fund, which was introduced
by Prime Minister Kamla Persad-
Bissessar; the Renal and Dialysis Unit
at the Eric Williams Medical Sciences
Complex; the Animal Welfare Network;
the Down Syndrome Family Network;
The Autistic Society of T&T, the
Wildlife Orphanage and Rehabilitation
Centre and in 2015, the National Centre
for Persons with Disabilities---which
celebrated its 50th anniversary---was
Haidar extended gratitude and
thanked the Radisson Hotel for stepping
up for their cause this year and lending
support by giving them a good deal for
the venue. He said as a result, they will
be able to cut their costs, which will
help to maximise their profits, which
will go fully towards charity.
"Some of the funds will also go to
any member of the public who can
bring a cause that the corps or the
executive will entertain and will give
them the money," he said.
The event s launch took place at the
Poolside of the Radisson Hotel in Port-
of-Spain on June 11.
Haidar explained that the festival
was an idea of former Foreign Affairs
minister Dr Suruj Rambachan.
"It was his idea of getting T&T close
to the countries that we represent. We
pursued the idea and are happy to say
it has been a success. We have food
and desserts from 37 countries such
as Lebanon, Italy, Botswana, Latvia and
Turkey," Haidar said.
"We have had a great response over
the years. It went from good, to better,
to even more better and we are hoping
for a great success this year."
The International Food Festival 2015
will be held on October 11 at the Radis-
son Hotel under the patronage of the
Prime Minister. It will feature global
dishes, desserts, drinks and the cultural
ambiance and décor.
An honorary consul is the official
representative of the government of one
state in the territory of another.
Honorary consuls act to assist and
protect the citizens of the consul's own
country, and to facilitate trade and
friendship between the people of the
country to whom he or she is accredited and
the country of which he or she is a
Honorary consuls are not paid and some
of them can grant visas to the respective
countries to citizens of T&T wanting to visit
for one reason or the other.
