We often get questions about surrender, like "how can we surrender". Recently I was reading one old BTG, 2001, and found a nice practical statement from Srila Prabhupada. If we search "surrender" on the vedabase we find 7445 hits, so we know it is an important topic. One should be submissive and say, "Krsna, I am very poor. I have no means to understand You. Please be merciful upon me. Please allow me to understand You and surrender." This is wanted. Krsna is very merciful, and when He sees that someone has surrendered, He will help from within.

There seems to be a lot of confusion about what it means to give fifty percent. For most householders their income does not allow them to live and to give 50% to the temple. The Lord definitely says that no one is more dear to Him than one who is always engaged in the preaching work of the Lord's name and fame all over the world. The scientific discoveries of the material world can also be equally engaged in carrying out His order. He wants the message of the Bhagavad-...

Concern for the environment is considered by many to be very high, even spiritual, consciousness. As devotees we may not realize our responsibility for the current problems nor understand what we can do about it. Are we peforming the sankirtan yajna enough? In these days of drought, people can gain relief from scarcity of rain and food by the simple method of the Hare Krsna yajna. Indeed, this can relieve all of human society. At present there are droughts throughout Europe and America, and p...

Surely is it blisssful to see the massive crowds at the KRSNA BALARAMA mandira, with thousands focused on offering their lamp to Lord Damodara. Although the crowds are too much for me, I know the Srila Prabhupada is happy to see it.

We do have such resolutions, but clearly they are not known to all, and then some who do know of them consider them to be "not vedic". In my travels I have noticed much concern for this issue from many angles. The GBC does have a committee that hopes to help victims and to teach devotees to always act on a spiritual level.

What’s more, argues Barbara Ehrenreich, the urge to do so is innate: In one form or another, the practice seems to occur worldwide and in most if not all cultures, including those of the Paleolithic peoples who depicted their dances in caves. Typically, such dancing involves music or drumming

The violent death of a young girl was indeed tragic. At the risk of appearing callous I wonder if perhaps a good lesson can be learned from the incident. I wish to say this in hopes of protecting other young girls who may be in similar situations. The lesson is that Vrndavana is a very dangerous place for young people to be left on their own.

At about 5.30 we heard that there was a big harinam outside. I went down and it was incredible. There were over 100 young party people all dressed as Santa Claus chanting Hare Krsna and dancing blissfully! (with short videoclip )

I think that rather than borrowing from the "sinema sampradaya" we should learn and follow what our acarya's have given to us. Srila Prabhupada gave us the HARE KRSNA maha mantra.

It was a memorial to the work of HH Bhakti Swarupa Damodara Goswami in that field, on the 70th anniversary of his appearance. There were some interesting presentations. One, in which the limitations of “science” were described, I found quite interesting.
