Prayers required for a disciple of Srila Prabhupada who is about to leave his body.
Srutakirti Prabhu: Wednesday 6 pm HST. I recently returned to the hospital and talked to Svatantra’s son, Steve Jr. We had a long discussion which included understanding Svatantra’s desires. He will be turning off the machines tomorrow morning at 6 am. My wife and I will be there with a few others. Today I gave Svatantra a piece of rice that was saved from Srila Prabhuapda’s plate here in Hawaii in 1975. I witnessed him gulp after I put it in his mout...

Bhakti Yoga Is Growing in Longdenville, Trinidad
Bhaktimarga Swami: Sometimes you just have to stay inside. There’s a part of me that doesn’t want to sweat early in the morning, dodging pot holes and puddles, what to speak of canines.
I was determined to stick it out mostly indoors with the AC on while doing some pacing in the sizeable-enough temple. Much chanting had to be done. An initiation for fifteen new candidates was to take place, and in preparation for this, the guru (me) chants on their newly acquired beads. I grouped these ...

One Path, Many Paths.
HG Caitanya Caran das: When we start exploring life’s spiritual side, we may hesitate to commit ourselves to any particular spiritual path: “Won’t that make me close-minded and incapable of appreciating other paths?”

Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura’s recommendation.
For a divine relationship to manifest, we need three elements:
Bhakta: the devotee
Bhagavan: the Supreme Lord Krsna
Bhakti: the process of devotional service (chanting is a limb of bhakti).
When these three come together, the Holy Name dances on the tongue of the devotee as described by Srila Rupa Goswami, ‘Love (bhakti) makes Krsna dance.
It makes the devotee dance.
It dances itself. The three dance together.’ (Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, Antya 18.18) For this kind of...

The lost relationship.
HH Sacinandana Swami: Do you have strong friendships? By this I mean people close to your heart, who are with you through good and bad times, people with whom your life is tightly bound. Will these relationships endure at your deathbed and beyond? There is only one person who is tightly bound to us beyond the barrier of death. He has always been with us, even before this life. He is a friend who knows the contents of our heart… and yet we have somehow managed to forget Him. We have inconceivably lost our most important re...
