Judging a person does not
define who they are.
It defines who you are!
Hello Friends, Happy monsoon! :)
Do you love rains? Like going out,dancing and dangling like trees and getting wet. wow In early childhood we all have done such crazy things especially on first rainy day, ya? :)
A 20 years old guy was screaming in ecstasy as he looked through the window of a moving train, “Pappa, pappa see the buildings so big, pappa see the trees, they are so green and fresh, mummy see the rains they are kissing my hands, pappa see, so heavy rain na that’s what dogs are running, because of heavy rain? tell me pappa.. ”
All the passengers were astonished seeing this weirdness. One passenger couldn't resist himself, he shouted “”Man! what nonsense your son is talking! Why don't you take him to some mental asylum?” others too agreed.
But the father was tranquil he lovingly answered his son “Yes beta, because of heavy rain dogs are running they don't like to get wet actually. And he looked at that agitated man, and gently replied,”Dear sir, My son got eyes today. He was blind for last 17 years! ”
That man and everyone got ashamed.
A person is judged by his or her ideal. The ideal we have established in life is the substance of what we are.

Hello friends! Here I will share some of my views on helping a suicidal friend.
Generally suicidal individual’s gives warning signals they express it explicitly and sometime it's very subtly expressed
Before that I would like to clear out some suicide misconceptions:
1. Those People who talk about suicide will not commit it only
Studies shows Almost 70-80% suicidal will say before taking the ultimate action
2. People who try to kill themselves must be crazy.
Mostly suicidal people are not crazy or mentally ill rather they are so trapped by unbearable negative thoughts, people and surroundings
3. No one can stop If a person decides to kill himself/herself
This is quite a narrow minded mentality, isnt it definitely if you desire you get the power to uplift anyone, right
4. People who commits suicide are those people who were unwilling to seek help.
Studies of suicide victims have shown that more than half had asked for medical help in the six months prior to their deaths.
Now we come to the point of
1. Talking/ writing about suicide: this is the foremost warning signal. Any guy/girl seriously talking about suicide, posting the thoughts online, onto the social media just doesn’t take it jokingly.
2. Seeking out harmful means seeking access to gun, drugs, cutter, ropes and so on hoodoo just keep your watch on them because they are on the way setting their mind.
3. Self-hatred & self-harm: they start hating themselves so much so that they really don’t care about hurting themselves badly
4. Withdrawing from other people
They get isolated from social crowd unexpectedly and start living most of the time alone
5. Saying goodbye: They give Unusual or unexpected visits or calls to family, friends. Saying goodbye
We saw the suicide misconception, warning signals now let us move on to prevention measures
Prevention 1: face to face talking
When talking to a suicidal person
Offer hope. Let the person know that he/she is important to you.
prevention 2: Offer active help and support
Accepting positive vibrations positive people and discarding negative people. Accepting healthy lifestyle habits like healthy diet, exercises, good sleep, devoting some little time of the day in prayers etc.
After all we all are in one greatest need that is love. Do everything possible which will show your unconditional love and care to your suicidal friend, make them believe that he/she occupies an important place in your life and keep praying for them.
I hope this video helps.
Thank you very much,
One simple girl from a village of Maharashtra. She was named Chindhi meaning a tattered
useless piece of a cloth. Since early childhood she had a great desire to go to schools. but Her surroundings never supported her. She used to look after a small herd of buffaloes and when the buffaloes would get into the water pond for drinking purpose, she would escape for the schools. But Alas! School teachers would beat her daily For her delayed arrivals. Like that she completed her 4th grade.
She was just 10 years old & her childhood got over. She was forcefully married to a 30 years old man. Her jealous husband would throw every single page she read, because he didn't know how to read. She had 3 sons and was pregnant for fourth time.
Once She comes to know that in her village there is a local mafia member who is troubling, abusing villagers especially village ladies. She complains about it to the district collector. But that mafia guy fools her husband by saying that your wife is carrying my child.
Her husband becomes ferocious. He beats her, kicks at her stomach several times.& takes her to a cow shed so that people will think that she is trampled to death. One cow takes pity on her cow stood over her to protect her. By the time one baby girl is born. So many villagers got gathered their But cow did not allow anyone to touch them. With gratefulness she embraced the cow and promised her as you have become my mayi (mother) I will become mayi for others.
She was rejected by her mother's home; her in-laws home. She spent her days and nights at a riverside crematorium. Because she was fearful of humans.
She was badly broken within.
Many a times she contemplated suicide. Once she decided to give up her life along with her baby on the railway tracks, but she hears a noise. A dying man was begging for food and water. She gave him food water. And surprisingly that man survives. She connected that dying man's cry with the voice of god to help the helpless. She realized instead of giving up her life to nothing she could use it for others which is everything.
Along with her daughter she started to take care of footpath orphaned children. She knew singing she loved to sing bhajans, prayers sang ,She begged over railway platforms just to feed them. Slowly number of the children increased. Some sincere pious people started giving their help. She was given a small structure where she could give the common protective roof to all those lucky children.
She did not keep her daughter with herself. She kept her at the house of a well-known relative. She says motherly love can deceive you; it can happen anytime that you will feed your own child but keep other children without food. So to avoid that motherly partiality she kept her daughter away from her and her daughter also understood her heart and supported her mother it was a very mature understanding after all she was born under a holy cow from a holy mother. She gave all the other children her genuine motherly love, compassion, care, feeling of belongingness, education everything. Over the years now many of them are leading a successful life many of them are doctors, nurses, engineers, farmers, lawyers etc. Chindhi becomes Sindhu tai, Sindhu, meaning extremely big and generous heart.
When her work was known to the world, her biological sons returned to her. Her wayward husband also returned to her. The people who rejected her are waiting for to meet her. On sindhutai one lady is doing PhD, one of sindhutai’s literature work is the syllabus in a Karnataka school, who was mere 4th grade pass!! One talk was arranged for her in the United States. Soon after that one movie was made on her. She has received more than 500 awards till now and been invited to talk over 15 countries.
My gurumaharaj was saying in the book he met her in 2013 after a year when he heard about her. That time sindhutai was in her mid of sixties. He was telling they joyfully exchanged each other's realizations. And when they got up at the end of their conversation she pointed out effulgent energetic women. Sindhutai said, “she is one of my daughters. She has become a medical doctor and oversees one of the orphanages. With tears in her eyes, smilingly she added she was the one who was born that day under the cow!”

(Meditation 2, THE BEGGAR I By B.T Swami)
Thinking about suicide?
“when pain of living becomes greater than the pain of dying then a person commits suicide.”
I had just typed suicide keyword and when i hit the enter button i got to see a number i was perplexed what is this? Then i understood it was a helpline number! Goodness!Suicide, an act of taking one's own life is a massively pervading phenomenon. You know what, it happens twice as often as murder. According to WHO, approximately one million people commit suicide every year. There is an estimated 10 to 20 million non fatal attempted suicide per year.
There are innumerable reasons behind suicides. problems becomes unbearable and a person don't feel being loved by others.They get badly wrapped in the negative feelings of worries, disappointments, guilts, rejections, hatred, unloved, ashamed, victimized so on.when they find no shelter no hope that is the time they will start becoming suicidal.
Actually In life no one can run away from problems. All are bound to face their past karmas, both good and bad. First of all whatever bad we face is not because of others but its because of our own past karmas. For example When you strike a ball, by natural laws its forced to bounce back. Right?
And Suicide doesn't end sufferings but it itself involves a bad karma. Almost in all religions take christianity, take islam, hinduism, jainism, suicide is considered as a sin One interrupts the natural cycle and destroys the gift of God. and remember Suicide is not just killing yourself but every1 who loves you, you kill your family you kill your friends. And one faces the consequences for all their sufferings. You may believe it or not, one is forced to wander in the ghostly body till the time he was destined to stay in that physical body
Well You and i may be here standing and lecturing on the value of life and how one should not commit suicide. But you know there are really some serious calamities that people face, which will shake anyone in & out. You may have sympathy but not empathy always.
But do remember there will be a set of people facing severe challenges which has the potency to break them down, destroy them. Half of them will quit, quit their lives too but half of them will try out till the last breath but will never ever give up And they are the one who shines, who become the inspirational role models and are glorified to the rest of the time.
Actually you know what these people have is a very strong foundation. They are aware of the basic fundamentals of life that not all the problems are solvable. Not all the questions in life are answerable.There are many things beyond our control.
Therefore it is very important to know what is our real identity. Lord krsna tells us in Bhagavad Gita we are not this body we are eternal spirit souls. And this life is just like a flash. We existed before the birth and will exist after the death also.The pleasure and pain are just like the summer and winter season coming and going. They are temporary. Understand your eternal identity.Understand your prowess. This life has got a purpose. There exists a higher goal. Pursue your higher goal and eventually you will find that ultimate fulfillment.
This life is like a Journey by a train, when you come across a filthy place which is stinking badly you don't jump off the train thinking that it’s unbearable that i can't stand it let me become free by giving up life but rather you tolerate it wisely, you carry that incredible courage and patience where gradually you will be gifted with your beautiful destination.
I hope this video helps.

Hare krsna dear friends! Oh ya ya wish you a very Happy Mother’s day too :D
Nritya Gopika Devi Dasi
Hare krsna dear friends!
We all wonder about the phenomenon called love. There is no greater power in this world than the power of love. but often we misunderstand and fail to distinguish beween love and lust. few days back i was hearing some discourses by HG Balgovinda prabhu and i got to know 2 prominent symptoms of love
Before i tell you about these two most prominent symptoms, let me quickly take you through all the 9 symptoms of love as explained by Prahlad maharaj :
1. Hearing: Shravanam
whenever someone speaks about your beloved then just like this rabit your ears are automatically raised up hai na:D
2. Talking: Kirtanam
Even if you are an introvert you will become an extrovert whenever you are happened to talk about your dearest one..
3. Remembering: Smaranam
You will forget your diet, sleep your health, the entire existence around you in the constant remembrance of your precious one :p
4. Serving the lotus feet: Pada sevanam
Sometimes its so happen that in deep love even the boy will do padasevanam of his mistress.
5. Worshiping: Archanam
we all know how our mothers worship father on some special occasions like karvachowk and keep fast for them... and you must be aware of how some people in total blindness worship their actor and actresses :D
6. Offering heartfelt prayers, emotions: Vandanam
this is where your bond becomes so solid
7. Executing orders: Dasyam
pyarme ladka ladiko bolta hai na me tumhare liye chand tare tod ke le aaunga, phir vo bolti hai "ha leke aao, pran jaye par vachan na jaye" "arey nahi nahi ye to bas kehneki baat hoti hai" hehe
but actually in love you do everything for the pleasure and wellbeing of your beloved.
8. Serving as a friend: Sakhyam
you treat your cherished one as your equals, your friend. you reveal your heart in full confidence.
9. Complete surrender: Atmanivedanam
This is the crown jewel. you are being conquered, you offer your whole being to your beloved.
Now if we talk about two prominent symptoms of love they are
1) Anusmruti: constant and fond remeberence.
The sanskrut word anu means constant and favorable and smruti means rememberence. Prabhuji was saying in the lecture that in local trains even if a guy is standing in a 3 fold bending form, in a very awakward position he is still lost in thoughts somewhere. Sometimes people also say “Kya baat hai khoye khoye se lagte ho! Kya ho gaya hai tumhe” You are not normal!
When in the restaurant girl forgets her handkerchief and boy gets it, there are innumerable songs written on handkerchief.
If a boy gets hair in his food he will scold mom, mom what is this! Aur maa bolegi arey teri vo aai thi khana banane then boy will adore the same hair in her remembrance!
It also makes you forget about the miseries in life. Such ordinary remembrance also gives pleasure. That’s the power of smaranam.
2) Niswarth seva:
Selfless and pleasing service, like a mother does to her child.
You are always worried about the wellbeing of that person. Its not so easy. Your love is on a pure platform. Today in the name of love what people are doing? Simply if you scratch my back I will scratch your back if you don’t scratch my back I will also not scratch your back. That is not love. Seriously!
Rupa goswami says, “If there is every reason for a relationship to be broken still that relationship is not broken that is called love.”
In this world anyone can come to you and say “I love you!” so you got to know this na ask them anusmriti?? Niswarth seva??? Are you ready to pay the prize?? Hahaha..
I would also like to add on one most significant point that supreme Lord is that ultimate person who loves us unconditionally with all His hearts; for his love there is no comparison in the past, present and future. And his unalloyed loving devotees are the carrier of that unconditional love ☺
Thank you very much!!! :)

Today I want to give a touch to a very significant part of the human relationships that is expectation : apekshaye!!!
In life whatever we do we keep certain expectations, isn’t it??
Ek baar ek bachese teacher ne pucha beta bade hoke kya banoge??
Vo bola “Dulha!”
Arey nithalle pathshala me padh raha hai tu bol raha dulha banega
Mera matalab hai bade hoke kya karoge??
Vo bola “Shadi!”
Ye to nalayak bacha hai bola mera matalab hai tumhare pitaji tumse kya chahte hai?
“Arey teri maa ki apeksha kya hai beta???”
“Arey teri jindagi ka mgsad kya hai?”
“bola hum do humare do! “:D :D :D
Ye uske jindagi ka magsad hai.. Koi bhi vyakti nirpeksh bhav se karya nahi karta!
We can never become expectation less in life and in our relationships too! But we all have experienced when our expectations are not fulfilled we get hurt, disturbed, angry. And this happens many a time so whats the solution then should we try become expectationless and maintain some distance with everyone and just get busy with ourself our own work our own practices???
No! a clear no!
Because in life we need some satisfying relationships. The problem is that we seek satisfaction In every relation. We can never expect same intimacy in all relations. We have different levels of intimacy in different relations. Not necessary everyone will have the same point of view, same feelings about you. Everyone possesses different natures, right. If you don’t find someone reciprocative you need not to expect much you can certainly have another one.
And the best part is we don’t require many close relations, many best buddies in life.. just 1 or is more than enough ☺ But to get that 1 or 2 in our lives is not so easy to have and even not easy to maintain
They say, relationships grow like trees . when you plant a tree by sowing a seed.. it will not give you anything.. you will have to be there to offer water, to provide protection. Then when the seed is turned into a tree it automatically gives you the shelter, flower and fruits.. hai na. Charity begins at home!
But with whom we invest is very crucial to determine. We all need like minded association to grow. Ek sharabi agar sharab ko chodna chahta hai aur sharabi logo ke sath hi uthata bethta hai to vo kabhi charnamrit pi nahi payega. I am a student, if I hang around with some timepass girls and boys ignoring studies and having so called enjoyment can I expect good results in exams? No! similarly if I seek closeness in relationships with wrong, negative minded, exploitive people can I expect good relationship with them??? never.. We need to make efforts to discover overlaps.
And I must tell you, if you have just one or two or just 1 person in your life with whom you can gel with, with who you share amazing understandings, with whom you are naturally selfless; you are gifted, you are gifted my friends. And you should do everything possible to sustain that relationship. Even if you guys stay far away from each other, its worth to take out your time n spend time together. As you grow you relationships among each other you develop your relationship with god, with krsna and that is where your will have fulfillment in life you will never complain about expectations!
Thank you very much! :)

once a lady asks her husband, “ Mein aapke sapneme ati hu kya??? ” :p
Husband says “Bilkul nahi!” haha
Wife says “QQQQQQQ”
Husband, “nahi nahi me ratme hanuman chalisa jap karke sota hu.”
Wife, “To kya hua??”
To husband bola, “Bhoot pishach nikat nahi ave, Mahavir jab naam sunave” haha
Husband is so much haunted by her wife ghost hehe.. Some people are so fond of horror movies that even they are scared of them they will go and watch in the theater in the company of their friends and while sleeping they will say mere bagal me aake soja please!! darr lagta hai to dekhne kisne bola :p
I also used to watch lot of scary stuffs in my childhood. Because I had assumption that bhoots are imaginary, you know they are real!! And I would get all horrible dreams. Abi bhutka picture dekhke bhagwan thodi ayenge sapneme! Well no worries I have a solution for this too. But first of all let me explain what is a dream. The prerequisite to understand it better is to know we are not this body we are spirit souls. And this body has two divisions 1) Gross body made up of panch mahabhuta earth, air, water, fire, ether. 2) Subtle body made up of Mind, Intelligence and False ego. The Consciousness is the characteristic of a living being which distinguishes us from nonliving matter. Soul and consciousness are inseparable entities. Now this consciousness has 4 levels as Srila Baldev Vidyabhushan explains:
Jagruti: When we are perceiving the external world through our senses its called as jagruti state. Consciousness comes out of the soul and then through the subtle body and then through the gross body into the external world.
Swapn: This is the dream stage where consciousness reaches from soul to the subtle body only.
Shushupti: It is the state of deep sleep. The soul’s consciousness is completely withdrawn from both gross and subtle body.
Turya/ Samadhi: The state of complete trance. Where consciousness through the soul is directed to the spiritual level of reality.
Srila Baldev Vidyabhushan says, in dreams we are present either as a participant or observers. And we really don’t have the control over what events happen the next. As the supreme controller, God has created this gross world for the fulfilling our desires performing our karmas through the gross objects of this world he has created the dream world too which is made up of subtle objects. The desires which we don’t express on gross level but those we keep limited to our mental platform or you better say subtle platform are executed in this dream world they say na “Mani vase te swapni dise”.
In this gross world, material world we get the reactions for our major karmas. And in the dream world we get the reactions for our minor karmas. That is why not all the people will get nightmares. And some will never get a nightmare at all they will get the bad dreams but not severely bad dreams. And sometimes it’s the kindness of Lord, krsna who gives the reactions to our major karma though the subtle platform of the dreamworld. So we have to be thankful for it.
Two things are responsible for bad dreams
Direct indulgence. We are involved in those activities or we are voluntarily or involuntarily surrounded by such activities.
Past lives impressions
In the first case you have full control, your free will “What to choose” so the bad dreams can be prevented.
In second case you don’t have much control but There is no need to get carried away what bad we see in the dreams until you can forget it and if it doesn’t have any psychophysical effect on you. Just leave it just forget it. And in case if your bad dreams are troubling you so much you must understand simply taking drugs or mere psychiatrist meetings can never give you the solution because the problem itself is on subtle platform. So do you remember the joke that I said in the starting?? :D One of the attribute of lord Vishnu is ‘Duswapnanashanam’ The one who destroys the bad dreams. In seventh canto of bhagvatam it is said you can also chant nrisimha pranam before going to sleep, for preventing bad dreams.
In childhood I liked to watch horror movies but when bhoot started giving me their darshan in the dreams I was disturbed that I believed they are false but why they are coming in my dreams, I talked about this with my friend requesting her to give me a solution, my friend said, hmmm do 1 thing before sleeping pay obeisance’s to devi, the goddess and sleep. That night only I went in front of our altar.I got confused which devi?? I saw sarswati devi, laxmi devi, parvati devi & durga devi I paid obeisance’s to all haha.. went to sleep and literally that night I had no ghost :D
I was happy I did it daily.. and meanwhile I had stopped watching scary movies too..
After some years I came into krsna consciousness.. I was away from all scary stuffs. One night I was preparing for my exam. I was getting bored of revisions. I came out my cousin was watching a horror movie and it was last scene I don’t want to describe it but I got scared you know haha but at the end Hanumanji saves the hero and heroine. But I got scared uska kya?? I recalled whenever I used to watch something horrible I used to see them in dream too.. I prayed oh krsna today will be the real test. If I am practicing sincerely I will not have their beautiful darshan else I will be so discouraged plz help me.. I told one of my friend I was adviced to chant before sleep.. I was chanting hare krsna mahamantra within mind and just like that went to sleep.. when I woke up I was so happy, enchanted and thankful krsna did reciprocated with me we have 1 balgopaljika photo.. that balgopalji came in my dream in the deity form.. I took the meaning that even if i(krsna) come in a baby form u need not have to worry ☺ and also I got darshan of hanumanji who was from that movie :D
Thank you very much
Hare krsna dear friends. I am so excited today. You must be thinking what a joke! Inspiration from 2 drunkards???? Are you insane! No no I am sane baba. But I do get so much of hope from the lives of these two drunkards. ☺
About 5 centuries ago in west Bengal there lived two brothers, jagai and madhai. They were super well known for all their social welfare activities. I mean immoral activities. :p like robbery, murder, gambling, illicit affairs etc
Not only the people of nawadwip were afraid and tired of jagai and madhai but even the denizens of heaven were afraid of them. Also yamraj was worried about them because yamdutas would constantly come to yamraj and say we are having hyper tension, anxiety. we are not able to deal with these 2 cases. Their sinful activities are so much that we are not able to write it down. By the time we write one activity; they are already finished with 5 activities. And the files are increasing like anything.
then chitragupta comes and says, “Your yamdutas are going to commit suicide because they are not able to keep track of jagai madhai’s record. They are working overtime. They are working in shifts. But still they are not able to write all their sinful activities. In fact yamraj said I am worried they are 27 hells. May be I’ll need to create more hells. So yamraj, chitragupt sab log poora yamraj department was worried.
And Jagai and madhai were having good time in nawadwipa.
Nityanand prabhu who is the elder brother of lord Gauranga thinks if jagai madhai become devotees then lord Gauranga’s fame would be spread. Nityanada prabhu approaches jagai madhai but they offended him. Madhai even hits nityananda prabhu and blood comes out. This news reaches to lord gauranga. He appears there with his chakra
Nityanada prabhu says why you are taking out chakra. In this age of kali everyone is demoniac. You have come to give your causeless mercy. So kindly give your mercy.
Then nityanand prabhu changes the topic and says jagai is very nycc he is good because when 2nd time madhai was about to hit me jagai stopped him. so kindly give your mercy to jagai. so chaitanya mahaprabhu gave mercy to jagai.
Madhai says arre everything we do together and he is getting mercy, I am not getting mercy will I be punished?
So then madhai fells at the feet of mahaprabhu. But mahaprabhu says you will not get the mercy because you have offended and insulted Nityanand prabhu you go to nityanand prabhu so madhai goes to nityanand prabhu and nityanand prabhu immediately embraced him. Both of them got pure love of godhead and they suddenly became pure devotees and this news is spread. yamraj gets an email :p hmmm whatever a notification that jagai madhai are pure devotees now. Yamraj says say again say again. Jagai madhai have became pure devotees!! yamraj got complex. He sees all the jagai madhai files got disappeared. Entire godown is empty now
Yamraj in full tension. How this happened?? let's go and see. yamraj took his carrier buffalo and all the yamdutas followed him. demigods also got excited. They also marched.
Ganesha on mouse, lord Shiva on bull, ma parvati on lion. all of them goes to see. There is a big queue every1 following yamraj suddenly there is stop. a traffic jam. Lord Shiva said what happened. then some 1 says yamraj has fainted. actually when yamaraj came to particular point, he could see jagai madhai were dancing in kirtan. So when he saw that he got fainted. so immediately lord Shiva and yamdutas gathered around. They were afraid that yamraja has gone. Lord Shiva says he has not died...he has fainted in ecstasy. The only way to get him up is to chant & do whatever kirtan is going on. so all the yamdutas started doing hare krsna kirtan around yamaraj. Yamraj gets up nd sees yamduta doing kirtan and dancing so yamraj also joins in ecstasy. Lord shiva seeing this he also takes his damroo and starts playing. Saraswati mata plays veena. lord Shiva says enough of damaru then he does tandav nritya. Ganpati says I will also dance. So like that 2 kirtans going on one down on the earth and one in the sky.
Incredible, isn’t it?? ☺
If our lord Gauranga, lord Nityananda are so munificent and their holynames are so potent. which transformed two horrible drunkards into two pure devotees. Then certainly we can also expect such miracle in our lives. ☺
Thank you! ☺

We all like music, songs..but there are very super serious species who will say they don’t like songs. But it’s a lie you know everyone is affected by songs..and the music of various instrument has halchal in their hearts :D
One may like a song so much so that he listens it every day, every day for a month, two months three months. chalo say for a year but not more than that..
but you know one song, a mantra is sung decades after decades, centuries after centuries in various melodies bringing change in peoples lives.
And you know who were those people? Those people were hippies.That song has so much of power that it could turn hippies into happy!
And You must be knowing who are the hippies?? Hippie is a member of a counter culture youth movement that started in us and uk during the mid of 1960s. those guys were living a very crazy and directionless lifestyle, illicit activities, overdoses of drugs like marijuana ganja very pathetic very pathetic. That dam maro dam was that time when they were introduced.
But I must tell you 1 song changes their life completely..the mantra, composed with the holynames of hare, krsna and rama which are on absolute platform on which they danced completely transformed them. It Brought 180 degree phase shift into their lives. It was incredible and a culture shock to see hippies embracing India’s ancient vedic culture. Giving up meat eating, intoxication, illicit sex and gambling leading a pure life like a brahmana and you can say much better than a brahmana..
The Beatles, the foremost and influential rock band where George Harrison gave stage performances after performances on the hk mantra. Touching and transforming the lives of thousands of souls in the west.
And this was all possible due to One lone person, srilaprabhpadawho was in his seventies travelled overseas with all kinds of challenges , introduced the western country with this most sacred and powerful hare krsna mantra the divine song and impacted many lives and made them blissful.
Like this…. And I know we are also seeking for that bliss that love so come on and sing with your free heart!
Thank you very much! :)

You must be aware of one famous idiom, sticks and stones may break my bones but words will
never hurt me. Is it real always??? I wish it could be. But in life most of our happiness and
distress is controlled by what people speak about us. isn’t it.
I remember, I was a school going kid, very sensitive one of my very good friend made fun of me
by calling ye moti, moti means a fat girl And I started crying. Hahaha.
It may be oral or written words it has a very powerful effect and sometimes one may forget
what you have spoken to a person but that person will never forget what impact you had on
Words are vibrations they hold power.
Recently in my college many seminars were held. In one seminar a doctorate mam was sharing
her life changing incident. She was telling, “ in my childhood I didn’t like to study. One day what
happens you know my aunt speaks to my mother, “Ambabaila kahich yet nahi ” Ambabai
doesn’t know anything she is so dumb. It did hurt me so much and that moment I became very
determined that I will show her.. words have power to to speak encouragement or persecution
over others.. I was thinking, wow just one sentence made her a phd scholar! And here we are
digesting everything hehe.
Once a father asks his son,
So beta what is your result?
Son says doctor ka beta fail ho gaya
Father ok what about you
Son: lawyer ka beta fail ho gaya
Father: but what about you
Son: professor ka beta bhi fail ho gaya

Our words are the carrier of our emotions. And with whoever you speak you impart those
emotions into them. It has the power to speak life or death. Just one word is enough to put
someone up or down.
There was a very sincere western disciple named aindra prabhu he had never ever any direct
exclusive talk with his spiritual master, srila prabhupada. Once he was doing kirtan, singing with
his heart and prabhupada says “jai!” means all glories. That’s it. just a word. And aindra prabhu
started 24 hours sankirtan movement despite of severe challenges in india and brought
worldwide kirtan revolution.
So like that friends, speech is the power given by the lord and I believe we will do magic with
the magic of words.
Thank you very much! :)
