Students as future leaders



As students you can use all your gifts for the ultimate welfare of the human society and in the service of God. Always remain in the mood of a humble person. Always recognize that whatever knowledge or abilities you have, they are by the grace of God. We may work hard to develop them, but without God’s grace, we have nothing to develop. God gives everyone a potential, and it is our free will how we’re going to utilize that potential and for whom.



You should do your studies as…

Thought Of The Day

woman's nature is very mild, and man's nature very strong. That is the difference. Therefore according to Vedic civilization, the woman must be protected because they are very simple. They can be led to goodness also very easily, and they can be polluted also very easily. By nature, they are very simple. Therefore sastra says that... Just like child. If you mold the character of a child from the very beginning, then he can become a great man. Similarly, if you train woman from the very…

Yoga of Work

Yoga means to reconnect our consciousness with God, and the yoga of work is to connect our work with God. How do we connect our work with God? By doing it in proper spiritual consciousness.  It is not that we have to change our job or give everything away; it means we have to learn how to live in divine consciousness.

That consciousness develops when we think of God, worship Him and become His devotees, when we associate with saintly people, when we make our home a temple and worship…

The Mind is like a Mirror

The mind is considered to be like a mirror. The soul is seen through this mirror of the mind. But if the mind is full of debris and dust—of lust, greed, anger, pride, envy and illusion—what do we see? We just see debris and dust. We cannot seeour self unless the mirror is clean. Therefore the purpose of all spiritual paths is to clean the mirror of mind so that we can perceive who we actually are, our relationship with God, our relationship with all living beings, and our relationship with…

2 ways to meet a glorious death







There are two ways to meet a glorious death, and both are very rare.

This Mind (Poem)

This Mind

 

Why, must I, possess this mind,

It adheres to anything, of any kind.

No prudence it exhibits, no strength of will,

It fails to remain, unattached and still.

 

From my duties, it makes me shy,

From works auspicious it diverts my eye.

My ally or enemy; its true nature’s unknown

For fickle it was, and even more, it's grown.

 

Not all is bad, and sometimes, I…

Thought Of The Day

So Caitanya Mahaprabhu teaches from this point, that you are dasa. Give up this idea that you are independent master, or one with God, or so many rascal ideas. That is not good. It begins with this point. As Caitanya Mahaprabhu teaches that jivera svarupa haya nitya-krsna-dasa [Cc. Madhya 20.108-109]. Caitanya Mahaprabhu teaches from the point when Bhagavad-gita ends. Bhagavad-gita says, sarva-dharman parityajya mam ekam saranam vraja [Bg. 18.66]. This is the relationship. We are trying to…
