Bhaktivedanta College Awards First Bachelor’s Degrees

All glories to the staff and students of Bhaktivedanta College! This is a very proud moment for all of Srila Prabhupada’s followers, and he must also be very pleased to see the Gaura-vani being so well disseminated towards the academic world. Raja vidya raja guyam! Gokulananda das, ISKCON Vancouver, Canada.

Love Yourself!!!

Of course this appeal for more positive encouragement towards oneself and others is very welcome. As in all such matters, we can again turn to our best role model Srila Prabhupada, whose pure heart and selfless love would always inspire so many others in their endeavors for self-improvement through Krishna consciousness. Often quoting the saying that “God helps those who help themselves”, he would also add that to truly help oneself is to seek the Lord’s (and guru’s) shelter and service. We want to direct our positive attitude towards that goal only, and not fall prey to the ego-flattering motto for self-empowerment which is the new ethos of too many New Age gurus. If we sincerely cultivate our surrender to get closer to Sri Krishna, then He will assuredly bring out the positive in every sincere aspiring soul. Such faith is our best method of self-esteem.

MODERN ATTEMPTS TO KILL KRSNA

Although Kali’s agents keep spewing their delusions of counterfeit science, the sincere and more intelligent thoughful persons will actually respond to the real information of authentic theism. We just have to become bolder and more determined and relentlessly challenge such bankrupt pseudo-munis. And we could take up large adds in major publications to challenge these nonsense pretenders with solid counter-arguments. The more the crows shriek, the more we have to increase our bold preaching.

Conspiracy Theories

Bhakta Corey’s article in blind support of “America the Beautiful” is really misplaced patriotic allegience. And to imply that any opposition to America is somewhat disrespectful to Srila Prabhupada’s own praise of America is a gross distortion of his actual legacy. As mentioned in some of these previous comments, Srila Prabhupada mostly wanted to engage America’s “blind strength” in the service of India’s “lame yet glorious spiritual culture” of service to Godhead. As already pointed out, the reckless use of its military power in fanning the fires of conflict all around this troubled humanity has shown America’s cheating governments to have betrayed all that was truly noble within the American dream for shared prosperity and freedom. And that is why Srila Prabhupada chose to come to America
(which he actually described as the very heartland of Kali-yuga’s tsunami of sinful activities) to deeply implant the only real anti-dote to this pandemic of ignorance, the pure Gaura-vani . So let’s get our focus right here and not regress to any sentimental flag-waving under any other banner but Lord Caitanya’s universal trans-national culture of Krishna-bhakti.

There’s No Other Way

Sarvapama prabhu:

Yes I can see that you have been blessed by Gaura-Nitai to have become so blissfully attached to Hari Nama. That is also my aspiration. I’ve been reflecting in this same manner , while also going out to distribute the prime benediction as many times as possible. I was blessed to start out on daily Hari Nama for the first two years (1971-72) of my devotional life; and although I’ve offered many other services to Mahaprabhu’s mission, I still feel that the mercy and purity of Hari Nama has always been my saving grace that has kept me somehow within the Vaisnava sangha. So I’m still coasting on that initial big wave of mercy. And I encourage us all to dive deep into the anandam buddhi vardanam of Hari Nama as many times as possible for the benefit of all jivas, gratefully,

Considering Srila Prabhupada’s Mercy

Thank you Babhru prabhu for sharing your excellent reflections. Yes our Srila Prabhupada’s mercy is one of the greatest descents of Gaura-kripa and his miraculous life is the greatest story ever told. He has demonstrated for the whole of humankind what a lover of God can do for the betterment of all. While the cancers of atheism and hedonism were relentlessly devouring all hope for spiritual upliftment and sectarian pseudo-religions were causing people’s faith to become eroded, he came to light up the world with the limitless beauty and sweetness of Lord Caitanya’s matchless gifts. And he enacted this spiritual revolution by his unconditional faith in his great master’s desire. As Mahaprabhu’s specially empowered messengers, they both desired to do His great work and help suffering mankind with the only true solution for Kali yuga’s ills: pure Bhagavat Dharma, Harinam Sankirtan. You have very nicely given the succinct history of this divine plan of salvation to nourrish our continuing attemps to offer our lives in gratitude for their miracles in all our lives. Thank you again for your uplifting offering in glorification to the greatest benefactors of all mankind. Gokulananda das ACBSP
