If we prayed as much as we worried, we would worry a lot less

By Chaitanya Charan Das

We all worry sometime or the other. And to some extent, worrying is just natural and unavoidable because so many things that are important for us are not in our control.

Still, if we consider the amount of mental time we spend on worrying, we will recognize that it is enormous – and enormously unproductive, in fact counterproductive.

While there are no quick fixes to the problem of excessive…

Our longing for equality points to our spirituality

By Chaitanya Charan Das

In our times, equality is considered one of the most cherished values. Few things provoke as much indignation as incidents of discrimination – or even allegations of discrimination. Such outrage is healthy, for it helps create a world where everyone has equal opportunities.

Still, what is the basis for our longing for equality?…

Surrendering to Krishna, Depending on Krishna by Bhurijana Dasa

1. Apply principles so we can measurably change our lives whether the world around us changes or not. 

2. We have to search for our “rest” in the correct place. It is not linked with external circumstances.

3. The key is the internal condition of the heart. 

4. The presence or absence of rest at the center of our lives determines the manner and extent to which we are shaken by the circumstances of life.

5. We have to accept…

Duty

By Giriraj Swami 

All of us–husbands, wives, mothers, fathers, children, students, and teachers–have duties, and sometime we begrudge the performance of our duties because we think their execution will impede our personal happiness. But duty is duty, and duty must be done. Even in the cold of winter, one must bathe. And even in the heat of summer, one must cook.



Speaking on Bhagavad-gita 1.27, Srila Prabhupada gave a wonderful example of two…
