Srila Prabhupada: Everywhere is Vrndavana. Wherever there is Krsna’s temple, Krsna’s sankirtana, that is Vrndavana. Caitanya Mahaprabhu said that “My mind is always Vrndavana.” Because He’s always thinking of Krsna. Krsna is there -He’s Krsna Himself – just to teach us. So similarly, anywhere you live, if you are actually follower of the instruction of Krsna, as Krsna says, man-mana bhava mad-bhakto mad-yaji mam namaskuru [Bg. 18.65], then that is Vrndavana. Wher...

ISKCON Naperville distributed 57 sets of Srimad Bhagavatam on the auspicious occasion of Bhadra Purnima (Album of photos)
Srila Prabhupada: Srimad-Bhagavatam is the philosophy of devotional service and the scientific presentation of man’s relationship with the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Prior to the age of Kali there was no need for such a book of knowledge to know the Lord and His potential energies, but with the beginning of the age of Kali human society gradually became influenced by four sinful principles, namely illegitimate connectio...

Srila Prabhupada: Happiness is meant for the devotees, not for the karmis, the jnanis or the yogis. It is the property of the devotees. Just like these devotees are chanting very happily. They are not expecting anything. They are happy by chanting. That’s all. Srila Prabhupada – June 22, 1975, Los Angeles

Team Iskcon Silicon Valley distributed a total of 284 Bhagavatam sets on Bhadra Purnima! (Album of photos)
Srila Prabhupada: The bhaktivedantas are impartial in distributing the transcendental knowledge of devotional service. To them no one is enemy or friend; no one is educated or uneducated. No one is especially favorable, and no one is unfavorable. The bhakti-vedantas see that the people in general are wasting time in false sensuous things. Their business is to get the ignorant mass of people to reestablish their lost relationship with the Personal...

DC Temple distributed 151 Bhagavatam sets on Bhadra Purnima (Album of photos)
Srila Prabhupada: This is the mission of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, that you go and preach and make propaganda about krsna-upadesa. This is Krsna consciousness movement. We are teaching all our men how to spread krsna-upadesa, how to spread Krsna consciousness. Then anartha upasamam saksat. Then all the unwanted things he has contaminated will be finished. Then pure consciousness… Pure consciousness is Krsna consciousness. Pure consciousness means to understand that &ld...

The discovery of a pristine area of Vrindavana! (Album of photos)
Deena Bandhu Das: The Vrindavan of our dreams!!
One day me and Arjun were roaming around in Vraj and we found a place that made us feel that we went back hundreds of years in time. If Vrindavan were left untouched from modern urban development, the place would be just like that. We both explored with so much excitement and disbelief that such a place still exists. The Vrindavan of our dream. The place had so many Tamal trees it looked like a Tamal forest. Then there were huge Kadam...

Four SB installations by Charlotte Sankirtan Team during Bhadra Purnima (Album of photos)
Srila Prabhupada: Here we have got attraction, material, so we have to withdraw this attraction. How it will be possible? If we become more attracted to Krsna, then this attraction will go away. Bhaktih paresanubhavo viraktir anyatra syat [SB 11.2.42]. Bhakti means the more you realize Krsna, the more you will become detestful: “Ah, nonsense.” This is test. One side increasing taste, the other side decreasing. This is the test. If we think that &ldq...

First yoga/kirtan program ever held in Lebanon!
At the first yoga/kirtan program ever held in Lebanon, the Arabic-speaking attendees all seemed to be reaching out for Srila Prabhupada’s Arabic books with an intense hunger. One woman could be seen hugging our translator mataji with tears in her eyes. Our Arabic translation coordinator, Premadhan Prabhu, stood with the books resting in his open palms as everyone grabbed for them while giving nice donations. He said that the happiness he felt from this experience was unlike anything he encountered b...
