Oct 31 2011 Iskcon Loses 26 2nd Avenue

By Yadunath das

A few months back, I wrote you all asking for monthly financial support to help keep Prabhupada’s 1st western temple up, running and under ISKCON care. My reasoning was that this temple is of global concern and surely the worldwide ISKCON community has a stake in whether or not its bills can be paid


Oct 31 2011 On the subject of Steve Jobs and “WOW”

By Nrsimhananda dasa

I wonder what he saw. Was it the Visnhuduttas? Could have been the "white light" (effulgence of the Supersoul) at the end of the naga? Doesn't appear to be the Yamadhuttas or he would be deathly afraid...

Krsnacandra das (BVPGM): There are people who are fighting for justice, who are hungry both spiritually AND physically.

Oct 30 2011 Your Deep Compassion

By Indradyumna Swami

Thirty four years ago today you departed from our material vision. Although the departures of pure devotees are celebrated as glorious in the vaisnava tradition, I honestly have never felt this to be a day of festivities. Instead of celebrating, I feel more comfortable spending time alone remembering your pastimes amongst us and reflecting on my service to your divine mission

Oct 25 2011 The Lib/Com Discussions

By Kesava Krsna Dasa

We see yet another example of right and left opinions being expressed - this time about Food for Life. We have seen them before on women’s issues, on whether to innovate or not, and on Srila Prabhupada’s way forward for Iskcon. Do these interpretations reflect our unity in diversity, or are they potentially frictional?

Oct 22 2011 Srila Prabhupada’s Concluding Words

By Giriraj Swami

Sometimes people think that physical proximity to the spiritual master is an indication of special mercy or good fortune, and in one sense it may be. But the real essence of the relationship with the spiritual master is service to the instructions. And service to the instructions does not depend on physical presence

Oct 18 2011 Prema Pumartha Mahan

By Pusta Krishna das

Srila Prabhupad's miracle is that he presented Krishna consciousness 'as it is', and so many took it to heart. He nursed us to spiritual health. He never cheated us. He was the living example of the type of person Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu was promoting: without desire for wealth, following, mundane sensuality, or even fame as an author of poetic words
