Feb 14 2007 Spiritual Retreat Day for the GBC 2007

Hare KrishnaBy Malati Devi Dasi

The secret destination turned out to be Jagannath’s Mandir and I personally could not have been more pleased since I had not been able to visit Them last year. These Deities of Jagannath, Subhadra and Baladev are very powerful and are known for Their benevolence in granting boons. There are many authentic experiences supporting this claim, many of them recent. We performed a bhajan and kirtan lead by H H Lokanath accompanied by Madhava das (world reknown mrdanga player).


Feb 13 2007 Day Seven of the G.B.C. Meetings

Hare KrishnaBy Tattvavit Dasa

Next there was a debate about the best way to serve and honor prasadam. Hridayananda Maharaja's team defended eating on the floor and using one's fingers. Devamrta Swami's team argued that a Western style of eating (at a table, with silverware) is essential for effective preaching. The argument that a pizza is a self-realized capati got a lot of laughs.

Hare KrishnaBy Tattvavit Dasa

Shattered, as a crystal glass dropped upon a temple's marble floor? Alas, my illusion is not so; it bounces, resilient as a ball onto a padded carpet...

Feb 9 2007 The origins of some of Srila Prabhupada’s sayings

Hare KrishnaBy Kesava Krsna dasa

I am sure many of us have encountered someone who may have doubted the efficacy of their duty, or were unsure of the completion of a task, to which we, with an air of authority say “Impossible is a word found in a fool’s dictionary.” This saying amongst others form parts of devotee speak as we mimic Srila Prabhupada’s words

Feb 7 2007 Day Two of the G.B.C. Meetings

Hare KrishnaBy Tattvavit Dasa

Bhaktivaibhava Swami (GBC chairman) began the meeting by advising the GBC members that they need to direct their comments and discussions more carefully in order to be more effective as a body. Offering an example, he said that during a discussion of a proposal, if a member withholds criticism until the last minute before a vote, this undermines the GBC's ability to build on constructive criticism or can obstruct progress. Thus he asked a deputy to provide guidelines for the day's straw-voting process.

Feb 1 2007 Chocolate - the nectar for which we are always anxious?

Hare KrishnaBy Sita-pati das

For me, personally, the definitive Prabhupada take on chocolate comes from an anecdote recorded in one of H.H. Satsvarupa Maharaja's Prabhupada Nectar books: One devotee had recently joined the temple in India. He recalls that he was addicted to eating chocolate, even though he knew that devotees did not take it.
