Make your own home a temple,organise your own sunday program ,invite folk round,

live within your means and be happy.

Nice article,i found theatre to be a medium to channel my desires for entertainment.
Start your own temple drama group,you will always be in demand,you will have a lot of fun.
Srila Prabhupada approved of Krishna conciouss theatre

As a father to 2 grown up daughters and a grandfather to a granddaughter ,it is an ongoing education to watch them grow up and see how they relate with the world around them.
To watch them continuosly have to struggle ,and struggle.
My perception of members of the opposite sex now is seriously different than when i was a younger man.
I used to see them as objects for my gratification,
Now all my old girlfriends must be in their 50s ,and getting older and closer to death every day,
My belated apologies to all of them,for simply using them.
I see the way other men look at my family members,and can see the wisdom of protecting those weaker than ourselves.
It seems we all choose to become involved in household life.
I often ask myself ,why do we get involved in this business in the first place?

Dear Keshava Krsna dasa,
While i appreciate your stress on Vaisnava etiquette,
my point is ,
do you as an individual , or do we as a society,sufficiently teach the process of discrimination?
to say,one simply has to see the good in others,is not the same as prefering to see the good in others,
Also time does tell,if left to its own devices,it usually degrades to a mode of ignorence situation,
so my point is ,does not Krsna give us the intelligence to recognise the symptoms of the mode of ignorence and redirect.
If we are not trained to recognise symptoms other than the mode of goodness one is simply heading for disaster.
I have read in Srila Prabhupada’s books (Forgive me ,i cannot remember exactly where),that one has to also understand nescience so we do not fall prey to it.

Dear Keshava Krsna prabhu,
So how do you recognise who is “proud,not so advanced etc”
After all i am trained to” simply see the good in people”
Another point that comes to mind is that, we all depend on Krsna for our daily maintainance,do we not?
but does that mean i have Him cooking and feeding me ?
