Give a swan to water that is mixed with milk to drink and he will extract the milk from it. Give a crow to drink the same water and he will drink it without noticing the milk content. Both birds drink but the quality of their liquid intake is different

Westminister Council are trying to pass a law that will criminalise people who distribute free food. It will also criminalise people who are homeless if they are caught sleeping on the street. Such a law will certainly affect Food For Life, which is based in Soho street temple, and Food For All which is based at Matchless gifts in Kings Cross
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 HH Dayananda Swami Maharaja
I would like to take this opportunity to glorify HH Dayananda Swami Maharaja, who was until recently known as Abhay Prabhu, having fortunately taken sannyasa on the auspicious appearance day of Sri Ramanujacarya and becoming the 100th sannyasi in ISKCON
My beloved Russian wife Lavanga Radhika dd left her body this morning at 10:45 P. M. Moscow Time. It apparently was KRSNAs Mercy to her, as her body was beyond recovery. Please say prayer's for her, Im very sure Lord Sri KRSNA has wonderful plans for her

This year in Vrndavana dhama it has been our great privilege to welcome Maharaja and the safari devotees for a whole week of blissful sadhu sanga
The name of King Kulasekhara Alvar is well known to the followers of Srila Prabhupada. His Divine Grace used to relish with great ecstasy the Mukunda Mala Stotra written by this great saintly king. This stotra is commonly known in ISKCON as the Prayers of King Kulasekhara
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?"

For many years we would have wonderful processions for Gaura Purnima and Narasimhadev appearance day through the centre of London. but then the police informed us that they were not insured to police the events.

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

The Remington Company started as a firm that manufactured rifles. 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! Who hasnâ€™t heard of the Remington Typewriters, and who hasnâ€™t heard of the winding Remington Road, Sunnyvale, in sunny California?

Devotees often quote a lecture by Srila Prabhupada where he said that even if they were seventy percent surrendered; Krsna will still take them back to Godhead. During this lecture, Srila Prabhupada was speaking on how one has to be one hundred percent surrendered. At the end of the class, he noticed the devoteeâ€™s disappointment that they will not be able to make the standard
Apr 4 2011 New Book On Vraja Dhama
A devotee friend asked me recently about the rationale behind creating a strategic plan for a spiritual organization. He understood the need for strategic planning in the corporate world where you have to anticipate market changes and consumer interests, but he suspected its relevance to our confederation of devotees who, after all, are ultimately interested in transcendence. Doesn't it go against the spontaneous nature of performing devotional service and spoil the devotees' spirit a little if everything has to be so mapped out?
A number of the devotees in Alachua who worked closely with Sadaputa Prabhu, especially since he moved here in the early 1990s, have in cooperation with Sadaputaâ€™s wife, collected and organized his papers so to make them available to future researchers. We are working under the auspices of the GBC BI Committee and have already sent an initial digital collection to Hari Sauri Prabhu and the Bhaktivedanta Research Center in Kolkata for use by the TOVP-Mayapura project

Traveling along the west coast of the US has been on my top priority of things to rekindle since I experienced traveling sankirtan to some extent back in Portland Oregon many years ago. We'd drive down to Los Angeles for Ratha Yatra and along the way distribute books, picnic, swim, and have wild car kirtans

Apr 1 2011 Sankirtan Magic in Washington, DC
Magicâ€¦ a word that has many contexts, meanings, and connotations. In Americaâ€™s early childhood, it was used in the same line as darkness, evil, the Devilâ€™s newfangled shiny red horn, the dark arcane arts that brought the practitioners to the stake. Over time, the meaning changed, but the core sense of mystery remained...until every storyteller found the treasure in the word and its essence was ground to Tartarus
