Of all the politicians I’ve ever heard giving Special-day related messages, this has to be the best ever, easily!

Krishna devotees have an explanation for everything. If I was reading a newspaper commenting on this unfortunate story of the suicide of Mr. Williams I can imagine the article writer fumbling around trying to explain the “why”: they’d mostly side-step or ignore it.

Very perceptive of the author to credit ISKCON - and thus Srila Prabhupada - with the general rise in sattvic living over the past few decades.

Prabhu, I wonder would you be stressing to the city council that a proposed temple in this park would be - from their point of view - a beautiful tourist attraction? London is competing with New York, Paris, etc as being the world’s top cities, and you want to help them keep London in front.
Plus if the proposed building was strikingly unique (for example, the Sydney Opera House is strikingly unique) that may help to sway them in favour. A wild idea, but if you could mix a Stonehenge native-looking arrangement with a Vedic temple - or just do something no one has ever done before, they may take interest. Plus, in delicately chosen words, if you were ever to hint that the British Empire in India accumulated some bad karma in the sense of taking wealth that wasn’t theirs, but that this temple would be a due return to Mother India and Vedic Culture. But that’s a delicate area!!

The people in the photo are queueing up to get their prasade! The police are there as tensions are rising in the rush for the curd subji…

Dublin city centre has an ISKCON Centre with a Sunday programme, plus a Tuesday evening kirtan night, plus other activities, including readings, talks and donation-based yoga - so there’s some sadhana and social life available! There’s a harinam on Saturday evenings.
Ireland is number one for quality of life in the world! It must be true, as it says so in Wikipedia!! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quality-of-life_Index

I appreciated this article as I’ve been singing ‘Ramo’ for years without thinking about it. I had never heard the point discussed before. Hopefully it will register. At the same time I appreciate the point that essentially Krishna wants to see our motivation. We were already familiar with a word like Ramo: Rambo!! I guess the conditioned soul is wandering around thinking he’s some kind of cool hero. Just joking here :-)

Thank you Indradyumna Maharaja. This question / doubt is very well answered. It is to the credit of this ANC party that they have you there sharing Vedic wisdom. All political parties in the world would be improved by hearing from Krishna’s devotees. All political gatherings in the world would be better with talks from Krishna’s devotees and kirtan with Krishna’s devotees.

I had an Aunt in Dublin also, prabhu, who followed three regulative principles all her life - and was satisfied with this also (she kindly gave her motherliness to me) - the problem area being eating meat. But I have a feeling, or a hope, that as Frances was getting older she stopped eating that also, as she hardly ate anything and went down to being 30kgs in weight - as she had heard that it’s not a good thing to do. The three Govinda’s restaurants in Dublin are a help for the people there to get information and experience of a better way. And the ISKCON centre in the city also teaches the right way, all thanks to Srila Prabhupada, ys T

A billion meals a year, and ten times more than the UN, are very impressive figures. Most other religious groups or organizations would be promoting this information much more. That is, I notice several Hindu-related groups that do smaller-scale food distribution programmes more heavily promoting that they do this. I guess many of us are collectively embarrassed by the promotion abuses and fund-raising abuses of the 1980’s and 1990’s, and therefore we’ve taken a step back in many places with promoting Food for Life. Hopefully things will balance out again.
p.s. and thank you very much Priyavrata prabhu for the service and the article
