December 15. ISKCON 50 – S.Prabhupada Daily Meditations.
Prabhupada spent much of his time teaching basic Krishna consciousness. This was the work that Krishna wanted him to do. He introduced Krishna consciousness into the West by writing and speaking untiringly on the basis of Bhagavad-gita As It Is. Neither was Prabhupada stingy in his discussion of Krishna’s personal form and pastimes in Goloka-Vrindavan. He often interjected Krishna lila into a basic lecture, and in a way that showed his direct realization. Sometimes Prabhupada said tha...

Who ate the kachoris??
Daivishakti: When Prabhupada’s house was first built and we first started using his kitchen, there were no windows or doors, it was just some pieces of wood covering up the holes.
At night the animals used to come in, so we’d have to have everything very carefully covered. Even then they would get to the things. But one night Prabhupada had sent down some kachoris that he wanted saved.
He wanted them kept for 24 hours because he wanted to try them the next night to see if they were still good. They were trainin...

Meeting Gary 10 years after he got his first book in Bedford! (2 min video)
Sutapa das, UK: I was in Bedford last Friday when I bumped into Gary. He said he met us 10 years ago and even remembered the exact spot where he got a book! After receiving the Science of Self Realisation that day he read the entire contents and felt all his questions answered. Now chanting Hare Krishna and reading Prabhupada’s books is part of his life. In the last 10 years he has read Krishna Book, Bhagavad-gita, Chant and be Happy, Nectar of Devotion, and more. Interest...

Guru Das and the Hells Angels…
“Swamiji called out "Gaura prem-ananda hari hari bol!” In a voice that was simultaneously sweet and grave, he recited paeans glorifying the past preceptors in our spiritual lineage. We collapsed on the floor, bowing down. We all alighted and sat upright silently, as the Swami was now going to speak. The Swami settled into his raised seat. “Thank you very much - all of you nice young boys and girls - for coming and…” We heard pounding on the wall - a loud thump from next door. Framed pi...

December 14. ISKCON 50 – S.Prabhupada Daily Meditations.
Prabhupada never made a big autobiographical presentation about coming to America. Some swamis wrote books, “My Year in England” or “My Year in America.” Srila Prabhupada was not interested in telling about his adventures. He spent his time telling us about Krishna’s adventures in the spiritual world and how Krishna brings that spiritual world into our world. He was interested in writing more and more books about Krishna’s teachings and translating the Ved...

Sex life and spirituality. Is sex bad? (videos)
15 iskcon devotees answer this question.
Srila Prabhupada: If one uses the vibration of the holy name for the benefit of the material body, for material wealth and followers, or under the influence of greed or atheism – in other words, if one utters the holy name with offenses – such chanting will not produce the desired result very soon. Therefore one should diligently avoid offenses in chanting the holy name of the Lord. (Sri-Caitanya-caritamrta, Antya-lila, 3.60)

Marathon Message by ISKCON Leaders (videos)
Srila Prabhupada: “I am very glad to hear how the book distribution is increasing more and more. This is our greatest weapon. The more the books are distributed, the more the ignorance of the age of Kali will be smashed. The world is feeling the weight of this Hare Krsna movement, especially in your country. We have to increase this book distribution work more and more to firmly establish this movement, which is the only hope for the suffering living entities.”

Bhagavad Gita Carolling (Album with photos)
Radhika Devi Dasi: On the 11th December 2015, Friday evening about 15 devotees went to Taman Kinrara for Gita carolling. This was to commemorate Gita Jeyanti on the 21st December 2015.
The devotees went house to house to read a Gita sloka and its translation to the people there. The devotees divided themselves into several groups to cover the 40 houses. In every house the devotees read the Sloka in Sanskrit, followed by the translation, gave a brief description about the sloka.
Despite the rainy even...

December 13. ISKCON 50 – S.Prabhupada Daily Meditations.
Prabhupada’s Stature. The soft saffron on Prabhupada’s body … He was not tall, nor fat, but neither do we think of him as gaunt. None of these words seem to apply. We met him in his seventieth year, yet we remember his graceful form. The movement of his fingers, hands, wrists. Never lost grace. Never slowed down or showed signs of palsy. He extended his pinky in a delicate way when putting on tilaka, and his fingers did their “dance” of spontaneous mudras while...

UK devotees reach almost half the number of books set as the goal for this December marathon of book distribution. The goal is to distribute 100.000 books, which is is the double they distributed during last year’s marathon! Of course, it would be a miracle if it happens, it is a very high expectation, but the devotees are investing all their energies and forces hoping for the Lord’s reciprocation.
