Jun 30 2006 Was the head of our sampradaya a child abuser?

Hare KrishnaBy Tamohara das

First, Srila Prabhupada very clearly states in one of the first purports that this was NOT the Brahma who was instructed from within by Krsna, and became the founder of our sampradaya (Brahma is a post, not a person). Prabhupada says that this Brahma with the daughter Vak is from a different kalpa.

Jun 27 2006 Readings from Jaiva Dharma, Part One

Hare KrishnaBy Dhruva Maharaja dasa

O master, in this world there are many devotees who are on the platform of Vaisnavabhasa. They have outward markings of a Vaisnava and they diligently chant the holy name although their chanting is on the level of namabhasa. Even though they chant, after many days they still do not attain pure love for Lord Krsna (krsna-prema). Why is that?

Jun 26 2006 A PROPOSAL FOR IMPROVING ISKCON

Indeed, in the seven purposes which Srila Prabhupada set down in 1966 when forming ISKCON's first constitution, the first purpose is "To systematically propagate spiritual knowledge to society at large and to educate all people in the techniques of spiritual life…"

Jun 22 2006 One week on

Hare KrishnaBy Praghosa dasa

As we know the GBC body is not infallible, just in case anyone is thinking like that! This is one of the reasons why Srila Prabhupada created a body of devotees, as opposed to installing one individual to run ISKCON. It is also of course the example that Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Maharaja set. The clear advantage of having a body of devotees making decisions is that on balance their collective decision making will be more often right than wrong.
