Cutting Through Impenetrable Karma.
By Sacinandana Swami
Have you ever asked yourself: What keeps holding me back despite my best efforts to advance and break the chain of undesirable habits? The answer, more often than not, is our karma. To be more precise, it’s the part of our karma that must be experienced and cannot be mitigated even through various methods like austerities or sacrifices. Such unavoidable karma is called prarabdha karma.

Visit to Biharvan (Album of photos)
Indradyumna Swami: Yesterday we were blessed to visit Biharvan, a very special Vrindavan forest. Biharvan means ‘the forest of enjoyment.’ It is one of the places of Radha and Krsna’s most charming and loving pastimes. There is also a large goshala of cows who are protected, served and loved by the local cowherd men. It was a unique experience because the forest has been preserved much like it was hundreds of years ago.

A very special darshan of merciful Balaji! How it happened.
Bhakti Chaitanya Swami: Two days ago we visited the main temple of Balaji on top of the Tirumala Hill at Tirupati. The local devotees arranged very special darsana for us, so we were able to come right before Balaji, about 3 meters from Him, and stay there for about a minute, and in that way savor the amazing experience of being in His presence.

KARTIK INSPIRATIONS 2019 - DAY 4. 16 OCTOBER, 2019.
When you give your full attention to your spiritual practices, a profound shift in consciousness takes place! To help you establish a divine connection I will recite an ancient verse now: My dear Lord Krishna. Although I have forgotten You for so many long years in the material world, today I’m surrendering unto You. I’m Your sincere and serious servant. Please, engage me in Your service....

We are the Most Fortunate! (6 min. video)
Mahatma Das: One of the big obstacles to chanting good japa is a lack of appreciation of our good fortune. It is so rare that Mahaprabhu appears in this particular incarnation to give the premanama that we are among the most fortunate souls in the universe. Why? The holy name can take us from the lowest position of material existence to the highest position of spiritual perfection, and we don’t require any qualification to chant the maha-mantra. If we remember this, then while we chant our rounds we will...

HG Ram das update.
After physical therapy in the morning, the doctor said Ram das is much more responsive and present. We make sure to spend time with Ram das doing some movements with him and massaging his arms and legs. He also seems to enjoy and respond a bit to hearing recordings of chanting and songs or melodies that he has written. The other day we were blessed with a wonderful surprise - he opened his eye wide, looked right at his wife Dhrti and gently smiled! He managed to do this 3 times. Then he moved his leg and foot. This has been more act...

Activating the Will of God.
How many of us hide behind the will of God as an excuse for inactivity or laziness? And how many of us attribute our successes to our efforts alone? The Vedic scriptures teach us that nothing in this world moves without the will of God. He is the creator, controller, overseer of multifarious universes, the benefactor of speech, intelligence, talent, and everything else without which we would be considered useless; however, do we just sit back, waiting for God's will to save or direct us without endeavor, or do we activate H...

The month of Kartik, the month of Radharani.
Kadamba Kanana Swami: In the Bhagavad-gita 10.35, Krsna says that of all the months, “I am marga-sirsa,” which is a name for the November-December period. It is said that before Krsna, first comes Radha… Radha-Krsna, Radha-Syam, Sita-Rama, like that. First the consort of the Lord is mentioned. Therefore the month of Kartik, which comes before this month of marga-sirsa, is a month of Radharani. It is a month when we are meditating on pure devotional service because she is the proprietor of...
