Hare KrishnaBy the Sannyasa Minister

Srila Prabhupada: “If one takes up the sannyasa order of life but is not able to control the mind, he will think of objects of sense gratification namely family, society, expensive house, etc. Even though he goes to the Himalayas or the forest, his mind will continue thinking of the objects of sense gratification. In this way, gradually one's intelligence will be affected. When intelligence is affected, one loses his original taste for Krishna consciousne...

Hare KrishnaBy Radha Mohan das

Bhaktivedanta Manor is described aptly as a true sanctuary for the soul, a spiritual haven. ISKCON’s Founder-Acharya, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada was very pleased with Bhaktivedanta Manor and its extensive grounds. He would especially take time out of his global itinerary to spend time in his quarters upstairs at the Manor. They are to this day maintained as they were in Prabhupada’s physical presence. The exchange of love between Prabhupada and his followers is very tangibly experienced there.

Hare KrishnaBy Prahladananda Swami

I am happy to introduce the 4 th issue this year of the ISKCON Sannyasa Ministry newsletter. Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Prabhupada explained that an advanced devotee and preacher out of humility takes the vows and dress of a tridandi sannyasi. Previous to the reintroduction of tridandi sannyasa by Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Prabhupada, advanced Vaishnavas who were renounced, often became paramahamsa sannyasis and wore the white dress of a babaji. To keep himself in a position of a servant of his paramahamsa guru, a disciple keeps himself in the formal 3rd stage of ...

It is the duty of a sannyasi to become advanced in Krishna consciousness by trying to please the Supreme and serve His mission, by cooperating with other devotees to spread Krishna consciousness to the innocent, and by defeating atheistic propaganda.

Their escapades took them to all major cities on the continent, but it was in ...

Hare KrishnaBy TOVP staff

The Mayapur city, Prabhupada said, would be the fulfillment of the desires of the previous acaryas. The city would grow to a population of fifty thousand and would become the spiritual capital of the world. With its gigantic temple in the center and separate quarters for brahmanas, ksatriyas, vaisyas, and sudras, the city would be a model for all other cities. The day would come when the world’s cities would be ruined, and humanity would take refuge in cities modeled after Mayapur. The development of Mayapur would mark the beginning of a Krsn...
