First yoga/kirtan program ever held in Lebanon!
At the first yoga/kirtan program ever held in Lebanon, the Arabic-speaking attendees all seemed to be reaching out for Srila Prabhupada’s Arabic books with an intense hunger. One woman could be seen hugging our translator mataji with tears in her eyes. Our Arabic translation coordinator, Premadhan Prabhu, stood with the books resting in his open palms as everyone grabbed for them while giving nice donations. He said that the happiness he felt from this experience was unlike anything he encountered b...

Why did Krishna not save the Pandavas when they played dice with Duryodhana & Shakuni?
Wonderful explanation given by Krishna Himself:
From his childhood, Uddhava had been with Krishna, driving His chariot and serving Him in many ways. He never asked for any wish or boon from Sri Krishna. When Krishna was at the verge of completing that particular Avatar lila, he called Uddhava and said,‘Dear Uddhava, in this avatar of mine, many people have asked and received boons from me; but you never asked for anything from Me.
Why don’t ...

So you want a happy life? Here is Bhismadeva’s advice: Maha­raja Yudhi­sthira inquired, “How should one act so that he can very easily pass his journey through life?”
In reply, Bhishma advised, “My dear King, a person who wants to avoid putting himself into great difficulty should carefully avoid performing three acts with his body- the killing of other living entities, stealing, and the enjoyment of others’ wives.”

“Afraid to Surrender” by HG Mahatma Prabhu - April 16, 2018 (4 min video)
If we are afraid of love - and surrender is another word for love - Krsna will bring into our lives the very things we fear will happen if we surrender. So what we fear will happen if we surrender then appears in our lives, because this is what we are focused on and this is what we expect will happen.

I SEE YOU IN THE SKY!
By Sacinadana Swami
“I would believe only in a God that knew how to dance.” - Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra
A few days ago, I went for a long walk with a very dear friend. We were so absorbed in our talks that we forgot the time. All of a sudden, we found ourselves surrounded by the pitch-black night.
A recent hurricane had torn off the branches of many timeworn trees and uprooted numerous others, leaving us an ominous path back home. Fortunately, my friend had a mobile phone with torchlight functio...

Unconditional love.
BB Govinda Swami: We should be prepared to open ourselves up. We should be prepared to take down our guards. We should be prepared to dismantle our protective fences that we have around us. And we should say:
“I’m ready to serve You. So You just please do to me whatever is necessary so that I would serve You purely”.

Krishna’s Fascination.
By Sacinandana Swami: Krishna is fascinated with the land and people of Vrindavan.
The Bhagavatam says (10.1.28): “The city and district of Mathura,” Vrindavan is part of that, “are very intimately connected with Krishna, for Lord Krishna lives there eternally.”Nityam sannihito harihi – He is there eternally.

Monkey seva.
Sutapa Das: Govardhana is enchanting… and simultaneously educational. At every turn there is a lesson to learn. While pacing the peaceful perimeter path yesterday, a street vendor suddenly announced: “Monkey seva! Monkey seva!” It was an invitation to feed the mischief-making monkeys that had congregated. “Monkey seva is my thing” I thought, “I’ve been feeding this monkey-like mind for lifetimes!” Some nuts for our furry friends today, but the inner monkey has to diet. Walking a little furt...
