Srila Prabhupada: “Even while engaged in various activities, devotees whose minds are completely absorbed at Your lotus feet, and who constantly hear, chant, contemplate and cause others to remember Your transcendental names and forms, are always on the transcendental platform, and thus they can understand the Supreme Personality of Godhead. (Srimad-Bhagavatam, 10.2.37).

Srila Prabhupada: “O Lord,” the demigods say, “the impersonalists, who are nondevotees, cannot understand that Your name is identical with Your form.” Since the Lord is absolute, there is no difference between His name and His actual form. In the material world there is a difference between form and name. (Srimad-Bhagavatam, 10.2.36 Purport).

Cow Protection in New Govardhan, Australia
Karunamayi dasi: The Cow Protection Program is always an exciting team to be a part of as there is always something happening. Recently we received a beautiful new member of the family, Vallabhi. Vallabhi is a 12-year-old, full Gir cow bought from the same farm as our beloved Aja the bull.
This gentle cow was generously sponsored by Ranganath dasa from Brisbane in celebration of his son Vamana dasa’s marriage to Hitashi devi. The cow was named after Braja Vallabhi dasi, Hitashi’s first cousin, ...

Q: Please tell us what brings you here to New Govardhana?
A: New Govardhana has been almost like our second home for a number of years. We would visit from Melbourne for the major festivals. We love the community here. We have two sons, Sridhar Krsna (four years) and Haridas Thakur (one year). In our hearts, we knew that raising our children in this environment would provide a great Krishna conscious upbringing for them. So we finally made the ...
Tim Sawyer: The Bhakti Sastri course here at New Govardhana, taught by senior devotee Shanti Parayan dasa, started in November 2017 and is still going strong with an average of 8–10 students per class.
With all the residents of Krishna Pad attending each class and ladies from the brahmacharini ashrama, it is a very interactive and educational class.
After studying the Bhagavad-gita, we have now started on The Nectar of Instruction. The Bhagavad-gita was very thoroughly examined, with students learning about the three modes o...

Krsna In The Deep South (Album of photos)
Indradyumna Swami: Yesterday evening we held our festival in a small hall just outside Little Rock, Arkansas. Arkansas is the deep south, a very conservative area. Nevertheless, after much advertising over several weeks and a short street performance before our event, 500 people came to our show and everyone loved it.
