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.

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.

Jul 18 2006 For Whom Does Hinduism Speak?

Hare KrishnaBy Hridayananda das Goswami

The strains are usually resolved satisfactorily. The word ‘Hindu’ 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 ‘Hindu’ or ‘Hindu dharma’ 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.
