please accept my humble pranams at your lotus feet!
This is Vamsidhari Dasa, serving as an in-charge at ISKCON Thiruppalai, Sri Krishna Balarama Temple, Madurai, Tamilnadu, India.
This is an invitation for those sincere Grhastha devotees who would like to serve the sankirtana mission of Srila Prabhupada.
na hi kascit ksanam api jatu tisthaty akarma-krt
karyate hy avasah karma sarvah prakrti-jair gunaih
All men are forced to act helplessly according to the impulses born of the modes of material nature; therefore no one can refrain from doing something, not even for a moment.
dharmaḥ svanuṣṭhitaḥ puṁsāṁ viṣvaksena-kathāsu yaḥ
notpādayed yadi ratiṁ śrama eva hi kevalam
The occupational activities a man performs according to his own position are only so much useless labor if they do not provoke attraction for the message of the Personality of Godhead.
Work in such a way so that you don’t have to work again!!!
Sri Sri Krishna Balarama temple is developing a traditional devotee’s community around our temple which is traditionally called as “Agraharam”, where devotees stay around temples, serve in the temple, and maintained by the temple itself.
