By Kavicandra Swami

I had a hard time putting it down and was feeling lost when I findished rreading. I gave my copy to one devotee who had lost his enthusiasm for preaching. He got so excited and claimed it had changed his life. He is recommended it to his friends and is reading it again


Dec 24 2009 Holy Places?

Hare KrishnaBy Kavicandra Swami

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.


Oct 15 2008 Proper Durga Puja in Babgkok

Hare KrishnaBy Kavicandra Swami

We know the Durga Mataji is "VAISNAVI" and loves to hear the maha mantra kirtan of the names of LORD SRI KRSNA. She blessed the devotees. Next year we will be better organized with powerful amplifiers and prasadam...


Oct 14 2008 Historical gems found in Osaka - updated

Hare KrishnaBy Kavicandra Swami

Just in original vinyl copies of the hit record 'Hare Krishna mantra' have been found in Japan. When first released in Japan many decades ago it reached the top ten and of course in the UK it was number 1!


Jul 30 2008 Domestic violence

Hare KrishnaBy Kavicandra Swami

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.


Jun 5 2008 Harer Nama Eva Kevalam (Dancing in the streets)

Hare KrishnaBy Kavicandra Swami

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

Feb 25 2008 Dangers in Vrndavan

Hare KrishnaBy Kavicandra Swami

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.


Dec 16 2007 Radha Londonsivara’s 38th anniversary!

Hare KrishnaBy Kavicandra Swami

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 )


Dec 11 2007 HARI OM Dhaba

Hare KrishnaBy Kavicandra Swami

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.


Nov 30 2007 Science…

Hare KrishnaBy Kavicandra Swami

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.


Nov 28 2007 Fifty percent

Hare KrishnaBy Kavicandra Swami

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.


Nov 1 2007 Harinam Sankirtan- Real Environmental Action

Hare KrishnaBy Kavicandra Swami

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?


Oct 24 2007 Radhanatha das update

Hare KrishnaBy Kavicandra Swami

I recently opened and found the following books being promoted. The authors must be descendants of Hiranyakasipu, Kamsa and other demons.



Hare KrishnaBy Kavicandra Swami

When I vistied Sri Vrnadavan Dham after Gaura Purnima I had a desire to go to Radha Kunda to have darshan a the samadhi of HH Bhakti Swarupa Damodara Goswami. I was only going to be there for one and a half days so I was wondering how I would manage it. I happened to see the car of my friend Dr Liladhar Gupta and found him on his way to that very place, so I joined him.


Mar 8 2007 Haridasa Prabhu ITVI

Hare KrishnaBy Kavicandra Swami

On Gaura Purnima I had the good fortune to meet my old friend Haridas Prabhu at the Radha Rasabihari Mandira in Juhu Mumbai. Haridasa Prabhu was one of the first Indians to join in Bombay. He is very much attached to SRILA PRABHUPADA.


Feb 17 2007 Unsung heroes

Hare KrishnaBy Kavicandra Swami

Some years ago the GBC appointed a group of " deputies " to assist them in their work. They have been doing very valuable service behind the scenes, without getting very much public recognition. They have done a lot of preliminary work which has enabled the GBC members to concentrate on proactive things.


Dec 13 2006 Halting the March of Kali

Hare KrishnaBy Kavicandra Swami

While most devotees seemed to be relishing being in the holy dhama and hearing about the Lord's pastimes, I was having a difficult time. I found it very difficult not be disturbed by the degraded condition of most of Vraja.


Oct 25 2006 Vraja Mandala Govardhan Puja

Hare KrishnaBy Kavicandra Swami

Every year for 20 years the Vraja Mandala Parikrama has celebrated GOVARDHAN PUJA at Varsana. The festival is always very sweet. The devotees bulid a beautiful duplicate of GOVARDHAN HILL and a sublime cow dung murti of GIRIRAJ KRSNA.


Oct 19 2006 Vraja Mandala Parikrama

Hare KrishnaBy Kavicandra Swami

After a very nice GBC meeting in Italy I finally made it to Vrndavana to join the VRAJA MANDALA PARIKRAMA. The first morning we were delayed by a car accident on the way to Govardhana parikrama. I was not hurt but HH Lokanatha Swami was injured and I went with him to the the hospital. He was bandaged and sent home and I was able to join the parikrama party at Govinda Kund.


Sep 23 2006 HARINAM SANKIRTAN KIJAY - The Long Range Effects

Hare KrishnaBy Kavicandra Swami

We have a very interesting story of how Rupa Manjari devi dasi became a practicing vaisnava. She graduated from the university majoring in political science. She had a serious drug problem while studying, but due to some accident she gave that up, that is when she started to believe in God.


Sep 19 2006 London and Ireland

Hare KrishnaBy Kavicandra Swami

The festival in Ireland was very successful. Manu prabhu had arranged things very nicely. The main tent had dancers from Bhaktivedanta Manor and dramas by Parividha Prabhu. His version of the "Boatman" was superb. There was a very big inflated playground that kept the many children very happy. There were several prasadam tables that were busy all day and all the guests were very happy to be in such a pleasing atmosphere .


Sep 6 2006 Some Thoughts on Japa

Hare KrishnaBy Kavicandra Swami

Simply by chanting the holy name of Krsna once, a person is relieved from all the reactions of a sinful life. One can complete the nine processes of devotional service simply by chanting the holy name.


Aug 26 2006 Berlin Ratha Yatra - a grand success

Hare KrishnaBy Kavicandra Swami

The festival was graced by the blissful kirtans of HH Kadamba Kanana Swami and HH Sacinandana Swami. Kadamba Kanana Swami commented that he felt the Berlin Ratha Yatra to be special because all the devotees were joining in the kirtana. The dancing led by HH Sacinandana Swami was especially ecstatic and the many shoppers and tourists along the road were stunned and very anxious to accept beautiful invitation cards.


Aug 26 2006 Surrender

Hare KrishnaBy Kavicandra Swami

Those who, even while remaining situated in their established social positions, throw away the process of speculative knowledge and with their body, words and mind offer all respects to descriptions of Your personality and activities, dedicating their lives to these narrations, which are vibrated by You personally and by Your pure devotees, certainly conquer Your Lordship, although You are otherwise unconquerable by anyone within the three worlds.


Aug 23 2006 The President of Singapore attends Janmastami festival

Hare KrishnaBy Kavicandra Swami

There were many hundreds of guests there. They gave us from 22.45 until 23.15, which was prime time and a longer period than anyone else had. The President of Singapore was present, so television and other news media were covering everything.


Jul 25 2006 Bali Iskcon’s public seminar with Subhag Swami

Hare KrishnaBy Kavicandra Swami

For those who may be wondering, His Holiness Subhaga Swami is recovering very blissfully in Bali, staying at the Radha Rasesvari Mandira. On Saturday the 21st of July, the devotees in Bali held a public seminar titled, "REINCARNATION AND KARMA". It was very well attended by many leading citizens of Denpasar.
