Hare KrishnaBy Gaurangi Devi Dasi

The Padayatra Ministry is still very much active, and padayatras are happening in different parts of the world. Less talks definitely does not mean less walks. The immediate goal of the Ministry, from March 2014 till the end of 2016, is to celebrate ISKCON’s 50th birthday with 50 padayatras. We are inviting you to participate in this glorification of ISKCON and Srila Prabhupada. This goal of 50 padayatras is very feasible, as Padayatra is bas...

It was like any other day, I was on my way for Life Membership preaching. Nothing was different except for little gossips here and there, people making fun of those tv commentators talking blah blah about the so called cyclone, same thing had happened a couple of months back, people went gungho about the cyclone and at the last moment it changed its direction and nothing happened. The boy at the petrol pump interrupted my thoughts, he asked me teasi...

Hare KrishnaBy Muralidhara-priya Das

Devotees explain that by offering lamps to the Lord, this means that we offer our eager desire for devotional service, which is the only thing that can conquer Krishna. So we offered lamps on behalf of our Golden donors first to Sri Sri Radha-Damodar, then to Sri Sri Radha-Mahhava and Ashta-sakhis, Lord Nrisimhadev, Sri Pancha-tattva, Tulasi Devi and finally to Srila Prabhupada. We have a sincere hope that all of Them will give us a rope of love, by which...

We have good news and bad news from Ukraine. The good news is that practically all devotees from the Lugansk region have been safely accommodated elsewhere. Meanwhile, the bad news is that as of today, August 29, 2014, it appears that the conflict could very soon be moving into Mariupol, a seaport of 500,000 and home to a very large devotee community. We must be prepared to assist these devotees should the battlegrounds extend into Mariupol and therefore differe...

Books are Basis- The same holds true for these students too. Nadia Nath Nimai prabhu is determined to help these devotees to have access to the books of Srila Prabhupada in a language they can read- Braille. However, since BBT doesn’t have any Hindi publication in Braille, this seems to be a long haul. Nevertheless, Nadia Nath Nimai prabhu is unfazed and has even acquired a Braille printer recently as donation. Therefore we humbly appeal to t...

As most devotees can attest to, not every town receives its local Hare Krishna community with arms wide open. But through Srila Prabhupada’s plan, Gainesville has proven itself to be incredibly favorable. A quiet college town, Gainesville welcomed the University of Florida (and its 102 students) in 1906. Today, UF is known as one of the nation’s top universities, enrolling 50,000 students, many of which have heard the Holy Name, associated with devotees, and ta...

Needless to say that the military operation badly affected our devotee communities in those cities as well. By Krsna’s grace, no devotee has been killed or injured in the conflict, although a few have had a very narrow escape. But while some of them continue risking their lives trying to maintain temple worship and programs, many find it necessary to relocate their families to safety, leaving their homes and possessions behind.

Our bold request of requiring land in Regents Park is in pursuit of Srila Prabhupada's instructions to his disciples when he was personally present in London, but we are also taking into consideration that Srila Prabhupada was very pragmatic in his plans to spread Krishna Consciousness. In this regard, Srila Prabhupada was also requesting his disciples to consider other locations in London for a temple should Regents Park not be available. Our New Temple Committee is thus al...

Friday, May 2nd, is Akshaya Tritiya, considered to be an extremely auspicious day on the Vedic calendar. It is a day bereft of all inauspiciousness and any endeavors engaged in on this day will have all success. It is totally unnecessary to check the muhurtha (time of day) for any activity undertaken on this day. The word Akshaya means “that which never diminishes”. Whatever services or dana (gifts) offered to the Supreme Lord Sri Krishna or his devotees on this day receives...

I am writing to seek help with a project for the Health and Welfare Ministry. Over a year ago I wrote a book that contains two parts. The first part is a complication of all the instructions that I could find about Srila Prabhupada's instructions on health for ISKCON devotees. The second part is comprised of different articles I have written about health. I have not been able to find a devotee who would be able to layout the book and therefore it has not yet been published...

In cooperation with the ISKCON GBC, the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust is marking March 14 as the first annual “BBT Only” Day. This is a day to remember the following important instructions from Srila Prabhupada: He formed the BBT to serve as his exclusive publisher. He wanted all his books purchased exclusively from the BBT. His Divine Grace gave those instructions in a letter addressed to all ISKCON temples. The letter was dated March 14, 1974.
