October 31. ISKCON 50 – S.Prabhupada Daily Meditations.
Prabhupada’s mission was really not yet underway. He was confined to a windowless chamber in a hatha yoga studio and was not allowed to preach to Dr. Mishra’s students. He knew he needed a place of his own, but he had no money. So far his only plan was to write to wealthy patrons in India. He had located a building on 72nd Street which he thought was suitable and was relatively inexpensive considering Manhattan real estate – even in 1965 the price was one hundred thousand d...

Kartika Mass @ ISKCON, Ludhiana

Devotees offered lights to Their Lordship after Gaura Aarti. Lamp offering will continue for the whole month of Kartika. It is said that since this month is very dear to Krishna by performing austerities, or restraining one’s sense gratification and performing activities to please the senses of the Lord, one becomes very dear t...

Avanti – A Growing Family of Schools!
Matthew Whitlock: The work of Avanti Schools Trust began in 2005 with the objective of establishing the first state-funded Hindu faith school in the UK.

Since then, this landmark school has deservedly benefited from national and international recognition as it journeys from strength to strength.

Parikrama at Vrinda Devi, Kamyavan (Album with photos)
Indradyumna Swami: The first destination on our Kartika Parikrama 2015 was the sacred village of Kamyavan, where the Deity of Vrinda-Devi is worshipped. Srila Rupa Goswami discovered the beautiful deep red-colored Vrinda Devi 500 years ago in Vrindavan and worshipped her along with his Radha Govindadev. When Radha Govinda were moved to Jaipur during the persecutions of Arungazeb, Vrinda Devi refused to leave Vrindavan. Radha and Krsna have many pastimes in Kamyavan as well and we discussed these in...

October 30. ISKCON 50 – S.Prabhupada Daily Meditations.
Prabhupada assured Sumati Morarji that he had no ambition to become the proprietor of a house or temple in America; but for preaching, a building would be absolutely required: They should have association of bona fide devotees of the Lord, they should join the kirtana glorifying the Lord, they should hear the teachings of Srimad-Bhagavatam, they should have intimate touch with the temple or place of the Lord, and they should be given ample chance to worship the Lord in the temple. Under th...

Kartik 2015 - Urja Vrata. In the Skanda Purana it is said: “When one offers a lamp during the month of Karttika, his sins in many thousands and millions of births perish in half an eye blink.” “By offering a lamp during the month of Karttika one attains a pious result ten million times greater than the result obtained by bathing at Kuruksetra during a solar eclipse or by bathing in the river Narmada during a lunar eclipse.” “Even if there are no mantras, no pious deeds, and no purity, everything becomes perfect when a person...

Indradyumna Swami: Before entering the sacred drama of Sri Vrindavan, one must take permission from one of five divine personalities; Gopiswara Mahadeva, Yamuna devi, Vrinda devi, Govardhan Hill or Vraja-renu, the dust of Vrindavan. The other day we set out early for the Yamuna river, with the beautiful song by Jahnavi devi, “Like a River” flowing through our hearts and minds. All glories to Sri Vrindavan Dhama!

October 29. ISKCON 50 – S.Prabhupada Daily Meditations.
Prabhupada did not judge beforehand who would serve Krishna’s mission and who would not. He was fully surrendered and fully dependant on Krishna. In obedience to his spiritual master he would approach everyone without discrimination to ask for help. There was Sumati Morarji. She had helped him in publishing the Bhagavatam and she had sent him to America. In a recent letter to her, he had only given hints: I am just giving you the idea, and if you kindly think over the matter seri...
