Remembering Srila Prabhupada - On Remembering Srila Prabhupada

On Remembering Srila Prabhupada



Remembering Srila Prabhupada is not just a sentiment or a fancy to be indulged in from time to time. It is the very essence of our existence.

Not only when reading, but throughout the day, every day, remembrance of Srila Prabhupada continues as we serve his mission. If we are not still associating with Srila Prabhupada, then what are we living for and what are we preaching about? My relationship with Srila Prabhupada is not limited to…

Remembering Srila Prabhupada - Then and Now: My Past and Present Lives

Then and Now: My Past and Present Lives



Sometimes devotees ask about my life before meeting Srila Prabhupada, but I don't like to tell them. There are so many conditioned souls wandering in the universe, and there is no value in hearing about one more. For those who really want to know my previous life history, here it is: I was a dog. I still am a dog, but now I am Srila Prabhupada's dog. His mercy is all I am made of.

A practical example of varna-sankara is the hippies.…

अब घर लौट चले

कब से भटक रहे है हम

पग -पग पे ठोकरे खाते



कभी यहाँ तो कभी वहाँ

कहाँ- कहाँ हम पटके जाते



चैन मिले न मन को कही

शांति को हम तरस जाते







आत्मा बेचारी तड़पती रहती

इसकी प्यास कहाँ बुझा पाते



प्यासी आकांक्षा के साथ हम

बार - बार धरती पे ही आते



कभी ये शरीर कभी वो शरीर

शरीर के साथ दुःख में समाते



आखिर कब तक भटकेंगे हम यूं ही

अपने घर हम क्यों न लौट जाते



इससे पहले कि इस जीवन की भी शाम ढले

चलो हम अब अपने… Continue

Justification of city life : SAVE TO BE SAFE

SAVE TO BE SAFE.



For a Grihasta the only justified purpose of a strenuous living in a heartless city (apart from Preaching, education and association) should be earning smartly, donating generously & Saving sufficiently a good amount of money.



This will help in an all-round way especially while relocating to a Cow-Centered, Krishna Conscious Village life. Therefore increase your savings today.



Get yourself a separate plan for Village relocation, Preaching Fund… Continue

Remembering Srila Prabhupada - My Memories of Srila Prabhupada

My Memories of Srila Prabhupada



The last darsana I had of Srila Prabhupada was in October, 1977, just one month before he left. I had been with the BBT Library Party, which was just winding up its activities in India. We were in Allahabad, when Yagna Prabhu, the party leader, suddenly said, "Let's go and take darsana of Srila Prabhupada." So we drove the whole day and arrived in the early evening in Vrndavana. I was surprised how easy it was to go into Srila Prabhupada's room.…

माला कर ले हरि को भज ले

माला करना है बड़ा आसान

इसका न है कोई कर्मकांड

जब भी चाहो ले लो नाम

इसका न है कोई कडा विधान



क्या पिता का नाम लेने में

करनी होती है कोई तैयारी

उसी सहजता से लेनी है

अब परमपिता की है बारी



तुलसी की माला हो और

उसमे मनके एक सौ आठ

सबसे ऊपर होता है सुमेरू

जहाँ होती माले की गाँठ



जहाँ से प्रारंभ होती माला वो

होता सुमेरू के बाद पहला मनका

सबसे पहले पढ़ते हैं क्षमा मंत्र फिर

यही से शुरू होता जाप महामंत्र का



एक-एक कर जब मनके… Continue

महामंत्र

हरे कृष्णा ! हरे कृष्णा! कृष्णा कृष्णा हरे हरे

हरे राम ! हरे राम ! राम राम हरे हरे



सोलह अक्षरों का ये मंत्र, महामंत्र कहलाता है

कलयुग के दोषों से बस यही हमें बचाता है



शास्त्रों ने कहा इसके अतिरिक्त कोई उपाय नही

कलयुग में और कुछ भी हो सकता सहाय नही



सतयुग में तपस्या से पास हरि के जाते थे

त्रेता में यज्ञों से उन्हें हम पास बुलाते थे



द्वापर में करते थे लोग अर्चा-विग्रह की पूजा

कलयुग में महामंत्र के सिवा उपाय नही दूजा



इस घोर कल्मष के… Continue
