Global Devotee Care Course Education — 2019. Whereas caring for devotees (vaisnava-seva) is one of the three cardinal principles given by Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu; Whereas Srila Prabhupada was himself a personification of devotee care (example, he built the Lotus Building before the Mayapur temple to facilitate devotees); Whereas there is benefit to ISKCON to develop devotee communities that are spiritually vibrant and materially stable; Whereas, often devotees leave or develop bitterness towards the movement due to inadequate devotee care: Resolved: That the GBC encourages all ISKCON Temples to hold the four-day Devotee Care Cou...

......and there is a massive Krsna parade. They had massive floats and all of them were following and dancing and beating drums and handing out chocolate slice and things like that. There were singers and all sorts of thing and they just went nuts. Each time they paused someone would start a faster banging on their drums and the crowds of them went wild. They love a good dance!

Known as sabu or sabudana, sago and tapioca are both used similarly and interchangeably in Indian cooking, especially as a light-meal choice for Ekadasi grain-fasting days. There is sometimes confusion about which is which because the white beads of sago and tapioca can look identical. But they are from quite different sources

Next Sunday, 23 July, Lord Jaganatha's Ratha Yatra will be held in Denpasar Bali. This is the third year for this big event and it will be attended by thousands of devotees. We are hopeful that both government and Hindu parishad officials will bless the opening ceremonies, which will begin at 10AM.

Suppose if I see somebody smoking, but he is doing Krsna consciousness very nicely. So we should not deride. We shall give him concession to reform. It does not mean that because he has accidentally smoked, smoking, that does not mean he has become immediately disqualified.

I realize that the ISKCON I joined--the ISKCON that I choose to live and work in today--is, in some ways, dramatically different from the one which commanded headlines three or four decades ago. My ISKCON is one which celebrates families and communities, values tolerance and compassion, helps its devotees balance fidelity tradition with the reality of life in contemporary America.

The strains are usually resolved satisfactorily. The word ‘Hindu’ never appears in a purely intra-communal Hindu context and has no significance in the central religious concerns of the texts, the expositions of bhakti. (emphasis mine) ... there is to be found no explicit discussion of what ‘Hindu’ or ‘Hindu dharma’ means in any of the texts surveyed.

Suddenly all we heard was explosions and firecrackers in the distance and this was almost midnight. I couldn’t figure out what was going on and, seeing the puzzled look on my face, Laxmimoni said, “Pakistan lost.” Everyone was rolling with laughter. That’s why no one was on parikrama, they were all watching cricket!

And while Hare Krishnas have changed, so has American culture. The spiritual mainstream embraces yoga, vegetarianism and concepts like karma and reincarnation. "A lot of people on the streets now believe in those things," says Anuttama Dasa, ISKCON spokesman. "A lot of things that were considered outlandish or threatening are now taking place in the basements of Christian churches."

I started to think about a major production of the "Srimad-Bhagavatam" done for TV as a miniseries. Every home in the world has a TV set and how great it would be for millions of viewers to see these Vedic stories which is still unknown to westerners.

A devotee is para-dukha-dukhi: he feels pain when he sees the suffering of others. If a devotee cannot bear to see even an ant in pain, how can he enjoy the fall of another devotee? And this bashing of fallen devotees is indeed an attempt to enjoy their misfortune. Otherwise what is the use of dwelling on it?

Sannyasa is not taken in ISKCON in the traditional Varnashram manner. Sannyasa in ISKCON is “awarded” to candidates that apply for it and go through the Society’s system of being considered and placed on a waiting list for years.

Alec Baldwin recently did a video for PETA, and many other celebs are actively vocalizing their vegan/veg lifestyles. Why must we reach so far back to the 70's when the majority of the Ratha-yatra attendees weren't even alive then?
