Hare KrishnaBy Urmila dasi

I want to thank you very much. I was requested to say something by one of the members of the community so I just want to say that I am very happy that I was invited to speak.

Feb 24 2010 Live from Sri Mayapur Candrodaya Mandir! HG Urmila Mataji

By Urmila Devi Dasi

My dear Lord, although personally You have nothing to do, You have distributed Your energies in the interactions of the material modes of nature, and for that reason the creation, maintenance and dissolution of the cosmic manifestation take place

Dec 25 2007 All-mineral beautiful “paint” to decorate the Lord

I've been looking for something to use to decorate the Deity that is natural, easy to use, and allows for painting very fine designs. I've found something wonderful and thought I'd share the information.


Aug 31 2007 Ecology in the Dhama

Hare KrishnaBy Urmila Devi Dasi

Each person can make a big difference without action from government or any other organisation. It may take a year or more before merchants respond to visitors refusing plastic‚ÄĒpatience and persistence will please the Lord and give us all the blessings of the holy places.


Jul 18 2007 Respect for Individuality

Hare KrishnaBy Urmila Devi Dasi

The individuality of the self is a central teaching in Vaisnava philosophy, but what is our practical understanding of this term? Individuality is present in all living beings on both a material and a spiritual level. This article translates how this concept needs to relate to education practices in ISKCON today.

Apr 13 2007 Kinds and degrees of illicit sex

Hare KrishnaBy Urmila Devi Dasi

In this regard, there are both kinds and degrees of illicit sex. The fact that one can categorize them all as "illicit" does not equate them, nor will there be the equivalent type and severity of reaction. And some types of "illicit" sex are more likely to bring one to a pious platform than are others.


Feb 24 2007 Serving Vrindavana: A very successful program

Hare KrishnaBy Urmila Devi Dasi

Jan 12 2007 Our Heart in Vrindavana…and our intelligence and hands and pocketbook, too!

Hare KrishnaBy Urmila Devi Dasi

Following the desire of Lord Caitantya, Prabhupada widely advertised Vrindavana throughout the world. The Lord and His servants do not intend, therefore, for Vrindavana to remain as unpopulated fields. We have followed the order to spread Vrindavana’s glories, and now we must, ethically, guide that development properly, dealing with the unintended negative consequences of development as our service, as well.

Hare KrishnaBy Urmila Devi Dasi

While showing his extraordinary prowess, Hiranyakasipu, who desired to kill his own son, heard that wonderful, tumultuous sound, which had never before been heard. Upon hearing the sound, the other leaders of the demons were afraid. None of them could find the origin of that sound in the assembly.

Hare KrishnaBy Urmila Devi Dasi

Do you have or know about books or other educational materials for children, their parents, or teachers that teach Vedic philosophy or that give a scriptural point of view to academic subjects? Do you home-school and have written lessons for your own children?

Bottle of juice it says in the store But really, store clerk, we don‚Äôt want anymore. It‚Äôs just water and sugar, colored flavor, not nice A chemical drink that one pours over ice.

Sep 29 2006 Real education

Hare KrishnaBy Urmila Devi Dasi

He will think, "I don't like pain, so why should I give pain to an animal just so I can eat?" He‚Äôll be honest: ‚ÄúI don't like to be cheated, so why should I cheat others?‚ÄĚ And he'll always speak beneficially: ‚ÄúI like to hear the truth, I don‚Äôt like to be insulted, and I want to hear what is useful to me. Let me speak to others that way.‚ÄĚ A truly educated person, therefore, will try not to hurt anyone, even by his words.


Jul 31 2006 The Mystery of the Sweet Manifestation of the Lord in New Mayapur, France

Hare KrishnaBy Urmila Devi Dasi

Finally I came to understand. The devotees there have the deities as their only possession and only wealth. Gradually, as I came to think about the tremendous austerity there coupled with the unprecedented attraction of the Deities, I concluded that Krishna reciprocates with this intense one-pointed devotion by revealing His beauty and sweetness to a great degree not experienced elsewhere.


Jun 9 2006 Unending happiness:possible?

By Urmila Devi Dasi

Why do we desire a never-ending, ever-increasing happiness, a happiness not dependent on any experience of sadness, in a world that doesn't seem to afford such a phenomenon? In other words, if such happiness doesn't exist, why would anyone look for it?
