Paramadayala Nityananda Das: I wonder how many people in India need to force their children to take dahl, chickpea savories, and other food derived from beans. I suspect the number is low because I have never seen it required in western ISKCON Temples. At any rate, once kids try these, they love them. The situation is very different in much of the world- where Vedic cooking is uncommon. Children rate beans and vegetables from undesirable to abhorrent....

Being Silent about One's Achievements.
Question: In the Srimad-Bhagavatam, Lord Siva instructs Citraketu that instead of posing as a devotee externally while lacking in devotional attitude, one should keep one’s bhakti hidden and not pose as a devotee outwardly. In this connection, I sometimes think about how irresistible it is to speak about one’s accomplishments. When talking with friends or others you like to share what you have done and the value of it. In fact it’s normal in one sense. So how do we practically apply this teachin...
Cutting Through Impenetrable Karma.
By Sacinandana Swami
Have you ever asked yourself: What keeps holding me back despite my best efforts to advance and break the chain of undesirable habits? The answer, more often than not, is our karma.

Can one who has sinned be a saint?
Sometimes people think that once a person has performed sinful acts, especially acts that are grievously sinful, he must be regarded as a sinner forever. This notion runs contrary to Vaishnava philosophy.
Srila Prabhupada: In Kali-yuga, you cannot strictly follow, neither I can strictly follow. If I criticize you, if you criticize me, then we go far away from our real life of Krsna consciousness.

How to find the Divine in the world around us? (8 min. musical
From the album Forever by Mahatma Das & Friends.
Devotee means he is able to tolerate all kinds of discomfort and whims of the material nature, and because he is too much absorbed in serving Krsna he takes no time to become angry or take offense with others or find out some fault. No. Devotee means very liberal and kind to everyone, always gentleman under all kinds of conditions of life. SP letter to Hamsaduta (December 10, 1972)...
