Hare KrishnaBy Praghosa dasa

Some years ago one leader told me an interesting story that highlights this point. One of his senior managers/preachers in his area of responsibility was having some difficulty and had had a recent fall down. This leader, in consultation with a few senior god brothers, decided a course of action and rectification with the explicit aim of strengthening this devotees spiritual life and hopefully have him return to his regular duties as soon as it was clear that he had fully...

Hare KrishnaBy Romapada Swami

When acting according to scriptural direction, under the guidance of the Lord's representatives, and for the purpose of pleasing the Lord - you will begin to see that such actions are uplifting, liberating and beneficial for all, while you are simply being an instrument, personal qualifications/disqualifications notwithstanding.

Hare KrishnaBy "an insignificant soul"

Krishna has used me as his instrument, 1) to help Andrew, 2) to give me a sharp lesson in understanding that no matter how much we feel useless, every devotee has a part to play and 3) That devotee association is vitally important to spiritual development. Who am I? I am really proud to admit that I am a devotee of Lord Krishna.

Hare KrishnaBy Payonidhi das

Today is such a sad day to remember as Srila Prabhupada disappeared from our external vision, one of the things that mitigates separation from Srila Prabhupada is reading his letters. I recall in Vrindavan every day devotees put a letter on Srila Prabhupadas desk, and devotees after mongal artik would come to Srila Prabhupadas house and pay obaisences and chant there, it is such beautiful rooms.

Hare KrishnaBy Giriraj Swami and Shyamasundar Prabhu

You can see how Srila Prabhupada pulled all these diverse personalities from diverse backgrounds with diverse understandings of Krsna consciousness and threw us all together in the same room--I had not slept with twenty men in a room for many years, not since I'd become a devotee--and united us in one goal: to spread Krsna consciousness. That was it. We were there for that.

Hare KrishnaBy Chaitanya Charan Das

Science "conquered" space – and realized how little it knew about space. To the uninformed, space missions proved human greatness. To the well informed, they showed human smallness. Space research reveals that there are more stars in the universe than all the grains of sand on all the beaches of earth, and our sun is just one of these cosmic grains.

Sindoor can cause local irritation and skin toxicity, says N. M. Khanna, an ex-Central Drug Research Institute scientist. The nature of sindoor or kumkum can change with exposure to the environment over time and this can result in blisters, itching, rashes, pigmentation and, at times, serious dermatological disorders.

A man of God is in town to challenge Darwin. Researcher Michael A. Cremo, like many of Darwin’s critics, doesn’t believe that man descended from monkeys. But unlike most of them, he turns Darwinian theory on its head, using the Vedas, believe him or not. “We haven’t evolved from monkeys. We have devolved from pure consciousness,” he says.

Sometimes impersonalists chant the holy name of Krishna. Sometimes people who are too much aspiring for material enjoyment approach the holy name. But Krishna doesn’t properly reveal himself to people who don’t have the proper devotion. So we must be very sincere. It is so simple.

I wanted to express my convictions today, not based upon my position as an “authority”, but from a personal and open-hearted viewpoint of someone who has had 27 years of experience in ISKCON. If you see any validity to these years of experience, then maybe when I open my heart to you, it may influence you, in some small way, to understand why I feel that this counselor system is important.

With great concern I have been informed that some temples do not follow the calculated times of fasting in their time zone and this may well cause many persons to fast on dasami instead of ekadasi, some devotees follow the Mayapure calendar still, but this may be many hours ahead like here in US and cause one to start fasting on Dasami.
