Embracing Unity in Diversity: Early Notes Toward a Rhetoric of Consciousness

When I was teaching in gurukulas, the students would occasionally find out that another child didn't like one sort of food or another and would tease them: “Eww—you don't like mangoes? That means you don't like Prabhupada and Krishna!” These eight- or nine-year-olds were probably joking, or half joking, to the extent that kids are capable. But when adults insist in the rudest language that other devotees who don't share their opinions on one detail or another regarding…

Thought Of The Day

So those who are thinking of first of all analyzing Krsna, whether He's God, they are not first-class devotee. Those who have got spontaneous love for Krsna, they are first-class devotees. How you will analyze Krsna? He's unlimited. It is impossible. So this business... We should not try to analyze, to know Krsna. It is impossible. We have got limited perception, limited potency of our senses, how we can study Krsna? It is not possible at all. Krsna reveals Himself, that much…

How to find and accept a True Guru?

Question: Accepting and Rejecting Sri Guru

Dear Gurudeva,

How does one choose/judge the correct guru who can guide him properly on the pathway of Krishna consciousness?

Also, when can we know that our guru is acting wrongly, like Maharaja Bali who rejected his guru Sukracharya when he was told not to surrender to Krishna in His form as Lord Vamanadeva?

Was Maharaja Bali wrong for acting against the wishes of his Gurudeva, or was he right for acting in the favor of…

Thought Of The Day

As Krsna is anandamaya... We see Krsna is always engaged in pastimes, either with the cowherd boys or with the gopis or with His father, mother, or in the fight of battlefield, Kuruksetra, or in killing some demon. But His pastimes are always there. He's never inactive. He's never inactive. There it is said, visvatmann ajasya akartuh. He has nothing to do, but still He is acting. Akartuh. Akartuh means He has nothing to do. Here, so far we are concerned, we have to do something in the…

Thought Of The Day

If you can keep yourself always in company with Krsna, then all perfection is there.All perfection is there. And Krsna has agreed especially in this age. Nama-rupe kali-kale krsna-avatara, Krsna has incarnated in this age as the holy name. Therefore Caitanya Mahaprabhu says that: "My dear Lord, You are so kind that You are giving Me Your association by, in the form of Your holy name  "And this holy name can be chanted in any situation. There is no hard and fast rule." You can chant Hare…

Harinama with Book Distribution



Some time ago I tried distributing books at UCLA (the University of California at Los Angeles). Before long I was dreading my encounters with the kids there -- they were so smart, so quick, so elite, and so uninterested in taking Srila Prabhupada's books. I wouldn't go back there again. They are like great yogis in that their…

Godhead and His Potentialities

In the Padmapuranam the Absolute Truth is compared with the Fire. As the Fire illuminates by diffusion of its rays, although it is situated in one place, so also the Absolute Truth, although situated far beyond the reach of our imperfect vision, is omnipresent in all directions by distribution of His varied energies. These energies or potentialities of the Absolute Truth, are innumerable and immeasurable in quantity and quality but primarily all of them can be grouped…

Krsna's mercy at the end and a new family member

While on sankirtan in Hamilton (New Zealand) recently, I met a familiar-looking couple. I had met them on traveling sankirtan in Rotorua during the recent marathon. They had taken a Bhagavad-gita for the husband's father. He is seriously ill, with a terminal disease. They reported that he had been in ecstasy to receive the book for Christmas and had wasted no…
