Hare KrishnaBy Sita-pati das

For first time visitors excessive cartal racket makes the experience of the kirtan more like a rock concert. Trying to project over the sound of cartals can cause the entire kirtan volume to rise to excessive levels.

Feb 1 2007 Chocolate - the nectar for which we are always anxious?

Hare KrishnaBy Sita-pati das

For me, personally, the definitive Prabhupada take on chocolate comes from an anecdote recorded in one of H.H. Satsvarupa Maharaja's Prabhupada Nectar books: One devotee had recently joined the temple in India.

Hare KrishnaBy Sita-pati das

At the time of death our bhajan will be tested. I think we will be lucky, and we will see everything taken away before the moment of the physical death of our bodies. At that time our bhajan will be tested.

Oct 19 2006 Loft Preaching Article

Hare KrishnaBy Sita-pati das

There is a growing sense of unease about the effectiveness of our current preaching paradigms in Western cities.

Hare KrishnaBy Sita-pati das

As I consider myself "within ISKCON", I consider that what I do is "within ISKCON". The teachers at our yoga school are a mixture of initiated grand-disciples of Srila Prabhupada and aspiring grand-disciples of Srila Prabhupada who have been introduced to ISKCON through association with the devotees who teach there.
