For Atheists and Theists Alike: Time as God. Sarva Dasa: As a blogger on a metropolitan newspaper’s religious blog page, I find that some of my references to a higher power or supreme being are met with ridicule or scorn by those readers who profess faith in atheistic views. This is certainly not surprising.

Why did Krishna not save the Pandavas when they played dice with Duryodhana & Shakuni?
Wonderful explanation given by Krishna Himself:
From his childhood, Uddhava had been with Krishna, driving His chariot and serving Him in many ways. He never asked for any wish or boon from Sri Krishna. When Krishna was at the verge of completing that particular Avatar lila, he called Uddhava and said,‘Dear Uddhava, in this avatar of mine, many people have asked and received boons from me; but you never asked for anything from Me.
Why don’t ...

“Afraid to Surrender” by HG Mahatma Prabhu - April 16, 2018 (4 min video)
If we are afraid of love - and surrender is another word for love - Krsna will bring into our lives the very things we fear will happen if we surrender. So what we fear will happen if we surrender then appears in our lives, because this is what we are focused on and this is what we expect will happen.

I SEE YOU IN THE SKY!
By Sacinadana Swami
“I would believe only in a God that knew how to dance.” - Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra
A few days ago, I went for a long walk with a very dear friend. We were so absorbed in our talks that we forgot the time. All of a sudden, we found ourselves surrounded by the pitch-black night.
A recent hurricane had torn off the branches of many timeworn trees and uprooted numerous others, leaving us an ominous path back home. Fortunately, my friend had a mobile phone with torchlight functio...

Monkey seva.
Sutapa Das: Govardhana is enchanting… and simultaneously educational. At every turn there is a lesson to learn. While pacing the peaceful perimeter path yesterday, a street vendor suddenly announced: “Monkey seva! Monkey seva!” It was an invitation to feed the mischief-making monkeys that had congregated. “Monkey seva is my thing” I thought, “I’ve been feeding this monkey-like mind for lifetimes!” Some nuts for our furry friends today, but the inner monkey has to diet. Walking a little furt...
