For the Common Good
What is the common good? The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy say that the common good “refers to those facilities—whether material, cultural or institutional—that the members of a community provide to all members in order to fulfill a relational obligation they all have to care for certain interests that they have in common.” Put more simply, it is whatever is for the benefit or interests of all.
Michael writes, “Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) affects the retina and leads to a progressive loss of vision. In the United States, some form of AMD affects an estimated 20 million people. AMD is predicted to increase dramatically in the West, rising to about 288 million worldwide by 2040. It is the main cause of irreversible blindness in those over age 50 in the Western World.

13 Ayurvedic Anti-aging Herbs by Dr. Ram Mani Bhandari
Dr, Bhandari writes, “In Ayurvedic herbal treatment, anti aging means principally keeping up a healthy body into herbal treatment and bringing down the operation of aging, degeneration and depreciation.

Website of the Month
From our review: “Three Minutes a Day is one of the best meditation books to come along in years. Author Richard Dixey has written a real how-to manual for anyone who wants to start meditating. Not only that, he outlines in clear, simple terms how the reader can gain all the wisdom and benefits of a meditative practice with just a few minutes daily investment of time. Repeat that three minutes every day for several weeks, and before you know it you are a meditator, capable of achieving clarity, growth, and insight.”
