Marveling at Krsna’s genius



At this very moment I sit marveling at Krsna’s genius and kindness in designing and supplying the world with the Avocado (my favorite food).

The skin of the Avocado is a well-designed wrapper. It is tough, yet protective. It is fine, but easy to peel. The Avocado changes color from light, to dark green announcing that it is ripe.

The creamy “flesh” of the Avocado is an ideal food that contains at least…

Offering Dandavat: A Nurturing Display of Surrender

By Urmila Devi Dasi

A simple yet elegant way for each of us to yield to the loving desire of the Supreme Whole.

Surrender. Submission. Such words may conjure up images of war and aggression, where the weaker party regretfully yields to the stronger, possibly with thoughts of future victory or vengeance. With such images in mind, we may…

Any kinds of situation or experience brings KRSNA more towards us

Hare Krsna

Walking with Krsna is, you are with a very faithful company. When we are in such a company how one should feels,first of all very comforting,peaceful.Specially it moves me where Krsna says just to surrender him and He will be there and protect His devotee and its a promise .What a faithful/loyal company,what can you more ask for ? In our heart He is there and somehow in any situation He instruct us what to do.With our firm believe we take one step and He takes us two steps…

The spiritual dimension by Kadamba Kanana Swami

The temple is the home of Krsna! It is also the Holy Dhama and the spiritual world. The scriptures say that Krsna does not descend alone but he brings along the entire spiritual world. This is not so simple to see. Only the very saintly personalities can see this.

Saints are interesting…

Preparing For The Final Exam By Bhakti Prabhava Swami

Facing the imminent separation of body and soul because of a terminal illness requires a response to one’s physical decline but also to one’s state of mind. Can we let go of all lingering material attachments? Can we fix our mind on Krishna? Are we ready?

Over the years and during the final stages of their lives, I was frequently in the company of two devotees — Hamsagati Krishna Dasa and Bhaktin Veerle — offering support, guidance, and friendship. For several months I saw them endure…
