Jun 27 2008 Let’s Talk about Tithing

Hare KrishnaBy Kaunteya Das

Tithing - donating a tenth of one’s income to the Church (or any spiritual organization) - enjoys long tradition and wide acceptance in Christianity; but it’s less famous and less practiced in ISKCON.


Dec 6 2007 Death Penalty: A Potential PR Nightmare?

Hare KrishnaBy Kaunteya Das

Due to the historically recurrent tendency of priests to go along with current trends, to avoid censure and the loss of support and approval, I am simply concerned that we don’t choose the easy way out regarding such a morally sticky issue as the death penalty.


Jul 27 2007 GBC Preaching Committee Report

Hare KrishnaBy Kaunteya dasa

The growing need to address multiple ISKCON projects in the same city/geographical area. Until now, there have been questions as to whether to encourage multiple projects and how they will fit into the authority system ISKCON has established. We felt strongly that by encouraging devotees to develop new initiatives based on their inspiration, we will increase the movement dramatically. This principle was accepted universally in our committee and also there was a consensus amongst the GBC body when we reported our discussions to them.


Mar 16 2007 ISKCON, a Community of Book Distributors

Hare KrishnaBy Kaunteya Das

A few days ago, at the GBC meetings, book distribution was a main focus. The GBC members met “privately” with the BBT trustees. And as far as I understand, they really wanted to have an open and frank talk on ways to increase book distribution.


Mar 8 2007 Time to Catch Up

Hare KrishnaBy Kaunteya Das

Of course, the months leading up to the GBC meetings are usually times of renewed dynamism, as we generally want to come out with new publications to present to the Governing Body Commission and to the hundreds and thousands of devotees gathered for the Gaura Purnima festival.


Feb 1 2007 New Site in Spanish

Hare KrishnaBy Kaunteya Das

I write this as secretary of the ISKCON Congregational Development Ministry. In addition to our English site, www.namahatta.org, we started a site in Spanish: www.mundonamahatta.org. I invite whoever speaks Spanish to visit, to contribute comments and articles, and to inform other devotees.


Jan 30 2007 Confused Confessors: Probe Discloses Clergy’s Diverging Views

Hare KrishnaBy Kaunteya Das

A journalist pretended to be a normal Christian follower asking the confessors for absolution from his sins, or rather asking if what he claimed to be doing was sinful.


Dec 24 2006 Television: The No. 1 Public Enemy of Devotion

Hare KrishnaBy Kaunteya Das

Yes, I hear the objection: "But Prabhu, we use it only to watch videos of Krishna and Srila Prabhupada!" If this is true for you, I offer you my humble obeisances and I assure you that this article is not written for you.


Dec 17 2006 ISKCON, Sect or Cult? Actually Both

Hare KrishnaBy Kaunteya Das

Words are conventions. As such they change their significance throughout time (and space), some morphing into different shades of the same idea, others atrophying into obsolescence or disappearing into oblivion. Some might even shift from a negative to a positive identity or viceversa.


Dec 1 2006 The Expansion of Christ Consciousness - Parallels with ISKCON

Hare KrishnaBy Kaunteya Das

Successful movements discover techniques for remaining open networks able to reach out and into new adjacent social networks. And herein lies the capacity of movements to sustain exponential rates of growth over a long period of time


Aug 22 2006 Belfast Rathyatra

Hare KrishnaBy Kaunteya Das

That young boy who left Ireland all those years ago had come home and there to greet him was Lord Chaitanya and Lord Jaganatha. I wondered at the thought of what it will really be like to actually go Back Home...Bact to Godhead. I had experienced a little taste that day and I can surely say, it is very very sweet.
