    Many thanks for the valuable informations. The Vedic Scriptures consist of austrological informations are very authentic and truthful. December 21, 2012, the End of World could be a wrong prediction of Mayan Calender. I can certain that our beautiful will be safe by the blessings of Lord, the creator of the universe.
