Dear Guru Maharaj
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada! All glories to you!
The last audio file of Text 2 that you sent me (noi-2.5[bss-atyahara to end.mp3]) does not have any audio. Although the file is 10.58 mins long, I couldn't hear anything. Can you resend me the file with your commentary Maharaja?
If you don't find the file, can you please record you commentary for Text 2 starting from "The wealth of the world should be used for the welfare of all living entities" to the end?

ASA - We are just getting to this. Sometimes we can't do everything then we become depressed and take shelter of intoxication (pnut butter and strawberry jam), but step by step we are advancing in devotional service. We really try our best. See how much work we get done and then see our limits. Eg. now we are starting to get a headache. See how many letters we wrote here, then there is Yahoo mail, and Whatsapp stuff. We just can't do any more. So we deserve a rest (light work).
We opened the named file and our copy is also empty. We started to read and record but our only comment is really that ... We can see that Srila Prabhupada cites the complete Iso Text ONe and then paraphrased the Invocation. So, these two texts from Iso seem to be the most important, memorizable. We have used them several times as the basis for courses in universities on Vedic economics. For Bh. Vai we might add Text 15 for memorization. Of course, you can do it as soon as you like and use it for your Sankirtan. Both Iso 15 and BG 15.15 are wonderful for preaching in the heavy scholarly Sanskrit environment.
