Aug 18 2014 Honoring Srila Prabhupada

Hare KrishnaBy Radhanatha Swami

When Srila Prabhupada began his book distribution he was the only distributor. He would take his magazines and just go from tea shop to store at his old age trying to convince people to accept the message of Krishna in the form of Back To Godhead Magazine. And in a few years he created the largest publisher in Indian literature in the history of the world. Hundreds, of millions of books have been distributed. Sometimes tens and thousands of Bhagavad-Gita distributed in one day, by those who are touched by his spirit of compassion. We can speak on this subject for many many hours, days, weeks, months, years and life times. What was Srila Prabhupada’s motivation? Selfless, unconditional love for Krishna.

Aug 7 2010 The Tale of Dorothy

By Radhanath Swami

We waited. And waited. It was a sweltering summer day in the Florida panhandle. The morning sun glared through the expansive windows of an airport departure gate. There, a young blond haired lady, neatly uniformed with a blue vest over a pressed white shirt and matching blue pants, stepped up to the counter, timidly surveyed the room, then announced a one hour delay

Sep 17 2008 Class on Bhagavad Gita - Part 1

Hare KrishnaBy Radhanath Swami

Take an example like Hayagriva Prabhu. As far as I could see he went back home back to Godhead, by Prabhupada’s causeless mercy. So who cares, what stupid things and mistakes he did in this world, if he’s back home, back to Godhead?

Jul 17 2007 Egoism and Lethargy

Hare KrishnaBy Radhanath Swami

The chanting of the Holy names must continue. Srila Prabhupada said we can do without temples, we can do without everything. We don't need money. If we can get it, we will use it. We don't need property. If we get it we will use it. We don't need vehicles. If we get it we will use it. We don't need good PR, Public relations. If we get it we will use it.

Hare KrishnaBy Radhanath Swami

Arjuna was fighting it for Krsna, not for sense gratification. Prabhupada explains devotees have to cultivate being free from envy, from pride, and a devotee should be everyone's well-wisher, not trying to defeat others and be better than others but to serve others, that is Vaisnava.

Oct 21 2006 Seven stages of purification and transcendental elevation

Hare KrishnaBy Radhanath Swami

Sometimes impersonalists chant the holy name of Krishna. Sometimes people who are too much aspiring for material enjoyment approach the holy name. But Krishna doesn’t properly reveal himself to people who don’t have the proper devotion. So we must be very sincere. It is so simple.

Sep 28 2006 Urgency of Surrender to Krishna

Hare KrishnaBy Radhanath Swami

We should know that any facility to enjoy in this material world is maya’s trick to somehow or other distract away from the urgent need to be Krishna conscious. Listen carefully to Srila Prabhupada’s voice when you listen to his lectures. There is always that deep sense of trying to give us the feeling of urgency. It has to be done now!

Sep 23 2006 Caring For Devotees: The Spiritual Counselor System

Hare KrishnaBy Radhanath Swami

A devotee has given his whole life to serve this mission, and then he becomes very sick. He needs help. He lays sick on the floor “I can't do my service.” And we say, “You are in maya. You are not the body.” “Thank you. Philosophically it's true: I am not this body and I am in maya, but I need your help to get out of maya and transcend this body. I need the love, support and care of a Vaisnava to take me through this.”
