Iskcon’s four movements

hari nam sankirtan is so simple & easy to do anywhere practically , just good to have some people around & or houses, then go strolling by slowly and singing hare krsna with drums & cymbols, someone should have some books or phamplets , invitations,
Lord Chatanya did this sankirtan
He likes and appreciates when we chant His Holy Names in public places
no requirement for huge endeavour
just go out anywhere you arte with freinds & do it / take a 1/ 2 hour walk singing hare krsna
sundays in Santo Domingo we used to go thru neighborhoods single story homes very quite quite, sucesful, always did books & colected Laksmi. just aproach doors & windows that people come to. no need to knock . the chanting is the knocking

what is classless society ? mean signify
does iskcon exemplify this ?
make vrindaban means to make self sufficient villages as Srila Prabhupada desired for our & everyone elses benefit
certainly was not for his benefit that He desired this

Face to face with death

now we read that some passenger comercial airplanes are fitted with heat detecting laser weapons underneath the planes to avoid being hit by a 200$ shoulder mounted rocket .
well i did not intend to say more but then coment is restricted so to spell this issue out more it appears that Partha Sarathi’s reasons for fear of death are getting closer to home or so Homaeland Security thinks .

Mexico & Guatemala Harinama Sankirtana Bus Tour

in the early days 70/ we would go out in Florida a van filled with 6 bramachari’s. we felt like everything comes from krsihna so everything on our trips was donated en route including gasoline . If some one gave $5 then we asked at next station untill filled but some filled her up. Some bhoga we got donated at super markets , then offered prasadm in public with kirtan & sold books along with prasadam for everyone. good old days ..donations of all sorts come from Krishna. But depending on Krishna like this had us feeling His direct conection in sustaining us day by day. we took rest outside or at some favourable persons home as we used to do also traveling in Canada with a group of bramacharis

THE GREATEST NEED, AND BEST PREACHING FOR THE MODERN TIMES

“not radical enough” means ? I feel to relate to that, generally. Way too much emphasis on same ol same ol which disallows for any change in new directions of positive nature.

I think of Tapapunja saying how impressed new comers to the palace were until they saw all the styrofoam in the dumpster in back . Then they left. Gainesville temple is using biodegradable cups,plates and forks but the Alachua temple does not care to ? The price comes to the same when a truck load is purchased.
Many green persons are against use of white sugar because nutritionally it is not healthy but we do not seem to care . That may turn many off also. Any trace of un natural unhealthy lifestyle is abhored by many vegans and vegetarians .

With Locananda prabhu’s coment i seem to see that there will be as many opinions about this as there are people. But still the time as been ripe for this for a long time . Perhaps a meeting of those interested . Green houses can do a lot here in the winter . Theres plenty room for green houses at Alachua comunity .

namaste
400 acres Where ? in Florida Green houses can do a lot in winter ..
I hear Brazil farm has a nice river and crystals everywhere Lush growth.
Why it is sucesful in Brazil & Hungary & not here in USA. or Canada North America .
Every one spends money on vegetables weekly so if devotee’s learned how to grow for sale that would be a big start for supplying Gainesville Krsnalunch & Alachua temple. Every week lots of $ is spent on bhoga. It is a garanteed expense .
Who in their right mind could not be interested at this point .Melting glaciers in NA & world, is very serious problem. These glaciers supply the rivers water . Spring runoff.
Anyway I would help if right organization is appealing .

Happy Hare Krishnas

the best is that it becomes the way it was when Srila Prabhupada was with us & hari nam parties went out daily.. That is missing…6 days per week. devotee’s work & marry ..a good thing to incorpoerate could be that young people take vow to preach for 2/3 years before marriage . this means take part in daily hari nam, with book & prasadam distribution 6 days per week. This can be performed in many ways in many places .. parks,schools, streets,etc..the fire of daily hari nam was the heart beat . once devotee’s/people marry the focus is gaining stuff & readying for children. then again the bhakta leader would be needed .. this daily fire of hari nam sankirtan must be there to complete the scene at the hare krsna temples ..It is not complete without Lord Chaitanya’s Sankirtan party going out publically at least 6 days per week all year..festivals holidays excepted.. In other words nothing new just what Srila Prabhupada had us doing. He did not invent the candle & paintings sales , we did..purity is the force .. When Srila Prabhupada was with us temples were given freely..purity is the force , books are the basis, utility is the principle,———-there is no other way, there is no other way, there is no other way…hari nam sankirtan ki jai. tear up the marble floors to distribute books …there very cold in winter any way..
The same activities when Srila Prabhupada was with us & the movement was expanding daily.. people came back to see where all the excitment came from..they wanted to take part naturally. like we did. loud speaker, no loud speaker, robes , no robes, hari nam , books & prasadam ….bas …hari nam sankirtan outside the temple ..daily ..

Los Angeles Harinam

hare krsna This person who made 1st coment not only lacks imagination, but has a negative non spontaneous overly stiff vision of harinam sankirtan. Obviously the devotee’s performing are happy, the yogini’s are happy, the on lookers are hearing hare krsna , but person number one is unhappy. He is not concerned that everyone is happy but that there must be some fault. One devotee put things to me like this once, he said , we must be having too much fun . ie there must be a limit to the fun one may have in krsna’s service . Don’t enjoy yourself on harti nam prabhu, just perform austerity. Thats a very poor attitude for hari nam . Being in the public’s eye the best thing is that the public sees us as happy in our chanting of hare krsna . Not overly strained but peaceful ,content,and happy. and maybe even ecstatic.

while Viswakarma prabhu preached with you in Sudbury that 1st day we met you & stayed at your place over nite, i watched the hockey game with one of your house mates downstairs.. Perhaps i mentioned that Krsna is ability in man,or the taste of water.

IS COMPETITIVE SANKIRTANA GOOD FOR US?

hari bol O well, i’m a competitive person so i thrived on competition for books distributed or laksmi collected .
One time Mahavira prabhu took rest around 10pm we were about even on distributing Sri Isopanisads So went out & distributed a few more at the corner, real quick like . He was transcendentally upset that i beat him. All in fun for Krsna & Srila .Prabhupada . Don’t over intellectualize . Bhakti isn’t

Kirtan Standards Committee

ps I definetly feel that there is not enough hari nam kirtan as there used to be . we could be encouraged far more to go on hari nam kirtan with books, prasadam and invitation cards. daily . and the leaders may show this by example. that is what Srila Prabhupada had us all doing . books are also distributed . there should be some room for discussion as per Srila Prabhupada’s words rather than strict rules concerning kirtan manufactured by others than Srila Prabhupada. On Indradhumya swami’s last visit to Alachua in the temple room kirtan he was sometimes sitting on the floor with the little girls, some on his lap, photo’s taken, some times dancing flamboyantly. It all seemed quite wonderful to me. although quite different and certainly not all could do that as he did so naturally. How long must re writting Srila Prabhupada’s books go on before we are simply all going out again daily on hari nam kirtan. All this re writting is setting precedents for new devotee’s ! They will think this re writting and re analyzing Srila Prabhupada’s words to come up with new hard and fast rules which Srila Prabhupada did not, is the norm in krsna consciousness. There is comon sense and there must be room for concensus,differences and discussion.

Are there not sufficient quotes by Srila Prabhupada on this subject matter ? If you constrict too much then some persons will shy away.
If you add something different , new or constricting, then who has that come from ?
Early days we wore only a cloth above waist or nothing in Miami area for hari nam.
In early days with Srila Prabhupada present we all took spontaneously to everything offered by Srila Prabhupada ..If you make a hard and fast rule that Srila Prabhupada has not made specifically, then you are asuming he left that out ? Is that not offense ? Offering all his quotes on the subject is fine in a small book. Some devotee’s are as good as profesional musicians and impose these standards, which constricts or disallows a simple devotee from heart felt public kirtan. thank uou

KAZAK AUTHORITIES ORDER DEMOLITION OF HARE KRISHNA PROPERTIES

time to send the K C army to Kasakstan & take over that country, or at least prevent houses from demolition. sounds like an extreme hatred of krishna consciousness situation.

MUKTA KESA PRABHU DEPARTS

Hare Krsna, having just read over the 50 mesages about Muktakesa prabhu i just want to share the one & only time i can remember Muktakesa speaking with me at New Vrindaban because perhaps those that knew him will be interested. I was fasinated by his little grey car packed with LP’s in the back seat & trunk,all one space . He would cruise thru various places selling the LP’s from the vehecle. So one day he comes up to me at NV, shaking, perhaps he knew that i liked him,and tells me what had happened yesterday. He tells me that he had been sitting in his car counting the laksmi he earned, when some once comes directly up to his window and smashes it in with a baseball bat. This person had seen Muktakesa prabhu counting the laksmi in the drivers seat. Then this person demanded the laksmi & took it, about $300 something Muktakesa said. Although this occured yesterday Muktakesa prabhu was still shaking. Although i sort of only knew Muktakesa prabhu from a distance,i liked him a lot. He was all heart .

Kirtan in America: An American Perspective

Ok that was great I really liked those thoughts on kirtan in general & the synopsis done . Yesterday from the Alachua temple we 12 or so devotee’s went into the woods ar the Rainbow gathering in the Ocala Florida forest. We distributed 7, 5 gal buckets of kiterie & or halava . when asked i said thats rice & vegies & thats cream of wheat with pineapple,butter & sugar It disappeared very quicly . How about taking or cooking on the spot an extremely opulent feast,(ie gulbjamuns,puris,halava, etc), so that after some time all the hippies would be lying on the ground or dancing in ecstasy after taking opulent prasadam. Go all out with the prasadam . Srila Prabhupada did with us. Why were not doing the same. As for the kirtan we plunked ourselves in the middle of things,Salvation Army christian style, with an electrified speaker . little pushy but no one balked thank God. better methinks to simply start a truly ecstatic kirtan which attracts everyone spontaneously. Prasadam is easy to distribte with a little enthusiasm instead of just standing there. Books, little ones were distributed for free & we only found one discarded after which was given in a minute to another person thankfully. As for street kirtan it was performed by the Lord Himself and as ya’ll know he attracted literally everyone !!!millions ..even animals treees & stones. But what we can do is have such wonderfully ecstatic and rhymic dancing kirtans that it attracts most people. I have seen this happen often, just by having an ecstatically rhymic kirtan everyone seeing and hearing is positively affected. By appreciating Krsna kirtan they are appreciating Krsna, just like by appreciating one of Srila Prabhupada’s books they are becoming initiated and krsna conscious. So no cap on street sankirtan Its wide open and only requires complete enthusiasm to sing play dance & chant uninhibitedly and most will take part and or smile in great appreciation. Seen it a milion times. It, Krsna kirtan is All attractive . Although if done as a penance or austerity the people will see just that and not be attracted except for a very small minority wanting just that. When however people see devotee’s in any garb, singing & dancing in ecstatic happiness mostly all love it or at least become very attracted & never forget. If then prasadam and books are added , this becomes the original program which Srila Prabhupada gave us before paraphenelia, and just money collecting for the big temples. Which Mangalananda thinks/sez has failed. The GBC or traveling sanyasis may exemplify this behaviour of leading the devotee’s on ecstatic hari nam parties with prasadam & books ..In this way the Lord Chaitanya Hari nam parties will again inudate the USA and elsewhere in full ecstatic joyfullness. No flowery new age words intended. Just the real thing everyone is hankering after. For Gods Sake …satyahit2@yahoo.com

The Amish, Learning From ‘The Plain People’

I think that Ameyatma’s idea is very good and that we should try to begin this life style in earnest.
Perhaps a longer vist to their comunity & it’s meetings would be very helpful .

So at least we can begin the rudimentary details needed for self suficiency.

Yes this idea of self sufficiency has been good for many years . Now to implement it by a group of similar minded devotee’s. Voluntarily or not it shall be required for sustenance .
