Oct 30 2006 Krishna give us Guidance, Oh Lord we need that now

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 recovered from his difficulties.

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.


Oct 27 2006 Who am I? Nobody!

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.


Oct 27 2006 Scientific understanding of Krishna Consciousness

Hare KrishnaBy Jaganmohini devi dasi

This chanting is very scientific. Prabhupada used to say it is very scientific. Scientific means we are doing it, practicing it. Srila Prabhupada says if we chant 16 rounds. Srila Prabhupada says all the Hare Krishna people are the best scientists.

Oct 25 2006 Srila Prabhupada, Raman Reti and his letters

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.


Oct 25 2006 Serving Prabhupada Together

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.


Oct 23 2006 Hare Krishnas, all grown up

Hare KrishnaBy Rachel Sauer

The movement, said Vineet Chander, an ISKCON spokesman, has grown up. Like the devotees themselves. Now, Chander said, the children of the original devotees are raising their own children in “Krishna consciousness.” They’re integrating their beliefs, he says, with daily life.


Oct 23 2006 The Hazards of Synthetic Sindoor

Hare KrishnaBy Tirtho Banerjee

Sindoor can cause local irritation and skin toxicity, says N. M. Khanna, an ex-Central Drug Research Institute scientist.

Oct 21 2006 Niranjana Swami on book distribution

Hare KrishnaBy Niranjana Swami

I was recently inspired. It was the 2nd day of our GBC meetings this year. I was completely absorbed the whole day, which for me is not something very easy. I am not so inclined to meetings, but on this 2nd day of our GBC meetings, there was only one subject, and that was book distribution.

Oct 21 2006 It’s Vedic “devolution” versus Darwin’s evolution


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.


Oct 21 2006 Seven stages of purification and transcendental elevation

Hare KrishnaBy Radhanath Swami

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.


Oct 21 2006 The Need for Struggling Together to Help Each Other

Hare KrishnaBy Niranjana Swami

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.

Hare KrishnaBy Tejagaurangi Devi Dasi

Now I have 170 names, and every year I go to visit at least 50 of them. Every year the month of January is dedicated to follow-up.

Oct 20 2006 Fasting on Ekadasi not Dasami

Hare KrishnaBy Payonidhi das

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.

Oct 19 2006 Loft Preaching Article

Hare KrishnaBy Sita-pati das

There is a growing sense of unease about the effectiveness of our current preaching paradigms in Western cities. The rising number of ads calling for pujaris, cooks, and preachers to reinforce existing ISKCON temples is a visible indicator that recruitment from the general public has slowed down drastically.


Oct 18 2006 Grains

Hare KrishnaBy Caitanya Nitai dasa

The whole point of our movement is to try to maintain and increase our consciousness of Krishna, and simultaneously avoid anything that may decrease it. His consciousness of Krishna is by far the most precious asset of a devotee, and he / she should be constantly vigilant not to loose it.


Oct 18 2006 Let the cow die naturally & then let the “civilized men” eat it

Hare KrishnaBy HDG Srila Prabhupada

They’re vultures, and their civilization is vulture-eater. The animal-eaters, they’re like jackals, vultures, dogs. They’re similar to these animals, the animal-eaters. It is not human food. Here is human food. Here is civilized food, human food. Let them learn it. Uncivilized, rudes, vultures, raksasas, and they’re leaders!
