A really good word for smarana - I heard the other day

By the way, I heard a really good word for smarana the other day. While I was at work driving the 114 big red bus, a message came over the radio to the effect than in gratitude to those that gave their lives in the Wars, we would be holding a 2 minute silence.

Anyway it came to it and the guy on the radio said, "OK, we are now going to perform 'active remembrance' and hold two minutes silence.'

It sruck me as a good way of describing lila-smarana as a discipline rather than just remembering willy-nilly. Anyway you probably all thought of that before, but I thought I'd just mention it. blink.gif

That two minutes of silence may prove to be a challenge! laugh.gif
