14 July 2020 | The Incorporation of ISKCON in New York

The International Society for Krishna Consciousness has potential as a peaceful extra-governmental force for this kind of change, nationally and internationally.

In 1966, Srila Prabhupada included in ISKCON’s articles of incorporation a far-reaching statement of the movement’s purposes. 

First Month of Caturmasya

06 July 2020 | First Month of Caturmasya Begins

First month: No leafy vegetables, such as spinach, salads of all types, cabbages of all types, kale, leafy herbs like coriander, mint, parsley, curry and powdered leafy herbs and teas.

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.

Bhavananda: Then he said that “I can tell from his face that he can make a house in which the whole world can live…

ISKCON (the International Society for Krishna Consciousness) was incorporated in New York City, in the State of New York in the US, on 13 July 1966, around 53 years ago. This first incorporation of ISKCON was executed at Srila Prabhupada’s behest – then known to his followers only as ‘Swamiji’ and to others as A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami.

People attaining Brahma Nirvana as soon as they go back to Godhead.

I remember Prabhupada writing that one attains Brahma Nirvana as soon as they go back to Godhead. I see this happening as one returning directly to their constitutional position as they re-enter the stream of Eternity, and in this case "Brahma Nirvana" is God's direct will and them following it at all times. They would also get Eternal Krishna Prema as well, full Love of Krishna, never to fall back down again into the material world, as Prabhupada has said once someone puts their hand into the…

Hare Krishna, I am forced to offer food cooked by non-devotee to the Lord... but it is offered sincerely, with love... Will the Lord accept it?

Hare Krishna, please accept my humble obeisances...  I am forced to offer food cooked by non-devotee most of the time... but it is not mixed with onions, garlic and mushrooms... I would make sure that tulasi leaves touch almost every part of the food... I would then offer it to the Lord... before leaving it for them to eat, I would touch His lotus, transcendental feet, and touch the food, just to double-purify the food... Will the Lord accept it?  (I am lacking of time to cook nice food... and…

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)
