Oct 2 2007 My Dear Friend Nirguna Prabhu

Hare KrishnaBy Hridayananda das Goswami

Today I saw your smiling face, and read about you, on dandavats.com. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: you are setting a magnificent example for the entire world. Your irrepressible love for Krishna, your humble kindness toward the Lord's servants, your constant compassion for the fallen souls, are all exemplary and inspiring.


Oct 3 2006 Hridayananda Das Goswami remembers Bhakti Svarupa Damodara Swami

Hare KrishnaBy Hridayananda das Goswami

Bhakti Swarupa Damodar was not only a promoter of Vaishnava culture, he was himself a great Vaishnava singer, who sang like a Gandharva for the Deity's pleasure. On this occasion, I extend my heartfelt condolences to all of his disciples, followers and friends, and to the members of his personal family.


Sep 3 2006 More questions for the GBC

Hare KrishnaAnswer By Hridayananda das Goswami

The question is, why should those who were the victims should be forced to appear as animals who are lower and more envious than snakes? What did they do to have to be forced to take birth in hell and in those forms? After all, they were the victims?


Aug 11 2006 Out of sight out of mind?

Hare KrishnaBy Hridayananda Goswami

There is another point. Ultimately the essence of pure devotion is the pure desire to please Krishna. Krishna Himself makes perfect arrangements to save the fallen souls and assigns a sufficient number of devotees to preach. As I said, since everything depends upon the free will of the conditioned souls, there is, in a sense, a finite amount that can be done for them.


Jul 18 2006 For Whom Does Hinduism Speak?

Hare KrishnaBy Hridayananda das Goswami

The strains are usually resolved satisfactorily. The word ‚ÄėHindu‚Äô never appears in a purely intra-communal Hindu context and has no significance in the central religious concerns of the texts, the expositions of bhakti. (emphasis mine) ... there is to be found no explicit discussion of what ‚ÄėHindu‚Äô or ‚ÄėHindu dharma‚Äô means in any of the texts surveyed.


Jun 10 2006 Maharaja Clarifies His Position on Gay Marriages

By Hridayananda Das Goswami

My basic point is this: as Vaishnavas, we should feel great compassion for every sincere soul who is struggling to become Krishna conscious in this very difficult age. I have no doubt that there are sincere souls, with real devotion to Krishna, who cannot completely avoid homosexuality.


Jun 9 2006 Implementing Varnashrama: Is it Practical?

By Hridayananda das Goswami

Ironically, the philosopher who best explains this problem may be Karl Marx, who famously concluded from his study of history that the means of production determine social and political relationships. In other words, the way that a society secures its basic material needs will shape the social and political institutions of that society.
