Jan 14 2008 Which Brahma are you?
The story of Lord Brahma going to visit Krishna at Dvarka is one of my favorite stories for reminding me of my insignificance. I think of this story when I am confused with other Karnamritas. I get email for Karnamrita dasi the singer, and I get asked if I wrote the biography of Gaura-kishora das Babhaji, or other books.

Some spiritual practitioners think that now they have achieved some reasonable control of the physical sex urge, they are well nigh up there in the wispy clouds of victorious abstinence, deserving of respect and honour.

Jan 8 2008 Lord Rama: Fact or Fiction
As of late, in the year 2007, the idea of whether Lord Rama exists or not has been called into question, by no less than some of the politicians in India.

Jan 8 2008 Deconstructing Obama In Iowa
Actually, the metaphor of a political campaign, in its excitement and competitiveness, seems appropriate to Krishna Consciousness. Devotees want to inject the awareness and teachings of Krishna into the hearts and minds of the "voters."

Jan 2 2008 Article from prison ministry

The minute I surrendered my personal gratification for the sake of glorifying Krishna, He reached out and extended His energy to include us all, regardless of our commitment to Him.
