Apr 12 2011 The Personality of Lord Rama
The Personality of Godhead Ramacandra, being aggrieved for His distant intimate friend [Sita], glanced over the city of the enemy Ravana with red-hot eyes like those of Hara [who wanted to burn the kingdom of heaven]. The great ocean, trembling in fear, gave Him His way because its family members, the aquatics like the sharks, snakes, and crocodiles, were being burnt by the heat of the angry red-hot eyes of the Lord

Apr 9 2011 My Brief Against Feminism
The question about whether women should become initiating spiritual masters or not has been raised. Some speculate about what to call her-- "Maharani", instead of "Maharaja"? "Jaya Guru devi", instead of "Jaya Gurudeva"? Hearing all this, I am thinking, "Why change anything? Didn't Srila Prabhupada say not to introduce anything 'new'? Prabhupada didn't make women sannyasis while on the planet, so why should he favor female diksha guruship?"

Apr 8 2011 Juhu temple story from past
The Deities in the temple before they built temple were facing the opposite direction they are now when right before Mr Nair died he said 'if they do not leave the land I will take a rock and smash that Krsna's face'. When Srila Prabhupad heard this and while Mr. Nair's body was being carried past Radha Rasabihari towards the crematorium he said "Just look, Krsna is having the last laugh."

Apr 7 2011 Misunderstood Renunciation
Does anyone aspire to become a sannyasa? Simply having this ambition in the first place is not the desire of a truly renounced person. On the other hand, all those who relish genuine taste in Krishna consciousness, will know what proper renunciation is. For this reason, both men and women can live as sannyasis without having that title

It took them almost half a century to add a book-related item to their product catalog, when in 1873 they added the Remington typewriter!
