Sri Yudhisthira Maharaja said, “Oh Janardana, protector of all living entities, please tell me the name of the Ekadashi that occurs during the dark fortnight of the month of Bhadrapada (August-September).”

The Supreme Lord, Shri Krishna, then replied, “Oh King, hear me attentively. The name of this sin-removing, sacred Ekadashi is Aja. Any person who fasts completely on this day and worships Hrishikesha, the master of the senses, becomes free of all reactions to his sins. Even one who simply hears about this Ekadashi is freed from his past sins. Oh King, there is no better day than this in all the earthly and heavenly worlds. This is true without a doubt.

Second Month of Caturmasya

04 Aug to 02 Sep 2020 | Second Month of Caturmasya Begins

Second month: No yoghurt (if one requires it for health, it can be mixed with water)
Caturmasya stands for ‘four months’. It is the period between sayana and uttana ekadasis. The scriptures refer to this period as the duration of Lord Visnu’s sleep in this universe.
The main goal of observing Caturmasya is to decrease attachment to material things and to increase devotion to Krishna.

Why we should surrender to Lord Krishna’s lotus feet.

At the junction of two ages, amidst two immense armies arrayed on the battlefield at Kurukshetra, Arjuna scans his foes and becomes confused. When Krishna expounds eternal dharma to enlighten him, Arjuna addresses Krishna as pavitram paramam: “the purest of the pure.”…

Is life meaningless until we give it meaning?

A young woman from South Africa, where I live, is a candidate for the Mars One project, the brainchild of a Netherlands-based group hoping to set up a colony on Mars by 2025. She anticipates years of vigorous training, many grueling hours of intense research, an eight-month-long journey in a confined spacecraft, and difficult living conditions on a strange…

As a medical doctor and a practicing devotee, I sometimes happen to help devotees with their medical illnesses in my community. And it is saddening to see how devotees neglect their health and pay a much higher price later.

There are many reasons why devotees suffer from health problems. Some of these reasons are unavoidable – like old age, genetic causes (diseases running in families), unexpected incidents like injuries, accidents…

Is there a big difference between Naimittika pralaya and Prakrtika pralaya?

Hare Krishna, In the case of Naimittika pralaya, after Brahma's daytime, a dreadful drought occurs for 100 years. Then the sun changes into 7 suns and burns the lower realms, bhuloka, and also the upper realms till mahar loka. Then rain pours down for 100 years and completely floods the lower, middle and upper realms. In short, the whole universe is filled with water.In the case of Prakrtika pralaya, after Brahma's death, the destruction that follows is similar to the Naimittika pralaya. First…

Our source of inspiration

"Now we have got so many students and so many temples but I am fearful that if we expand too much in this way that we shall become weakened and gradually the whole thing will become lost. Just like milk. We may thin it more and more with water for cheating the customer, but in the end it will cease to be any longer milk. Better to boil the milk now very vigorously and make it thick and sweet, that is the best process. So let us concentrate on training our devotees very thoroughly in the knowledge of Krishna Consciousness from our books, from tapes, and in so many ways instruct them in the right propositions." - letter June 22, 1972 by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada, founder acharya of International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON)
