He made his home in Agradvipa, Vasudeva in Tamluk, and Madhava Ghosh in Dain Hat. Govinda Ghosh…

Defeating the Greatest Enemy

Our greatest enemy is selfishness, our foolish tendency to serve only our own needs while neglecting the needs of others. Selfishness is mere foolishness because no man is an island. By our very nature we are meant to serve others. In fact, the more we make others happy, the more we become happy and satisfied. This is the law of nature. Therefore the very best service we can render is to give all others the ultimate happiness of delivering them from the cycle of birth and death. This is… Continue

Thought Of The Day

When you call yourself an Indian or a Muslim or a Christian or a European, or anything else, you are being violent. Do you see why it is violent? Because you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind. When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition, it breeds violence. So a man who is seeking to understand violence does not belong to any country, to any religion, to any political party or partial system; he is concerned with the total understanding of mankind.

Who Are You ?

Who Are You?

YOU ARE NOT THE BODY BUT A SOUL COVERED IN A MATERIAL BODY.

This is the main teaching of the Bhagavad-Gita.

“As the embodied soul continously passes, in this body, from boyhood to youth to old age, the soul similarly passes into another body at death. A sober person is not bewildered by such a change.” Lord Krishna, Bg. 2.13

You are a soul covered by a material body.

Your are bewildered by maya,…

Material world cannot be a happy place ……………….Nectarean Mellows

"G u r u m u k h p a d m a v a k y a"



Material world cannot be a happy place ……………….Nectarean Mellows



Actually in material world there can be no real enjoyment. Real enjoyment means, whole hearted, complete, saturated enjoyment. That can only come from the level of the soul because the soul is the real person. The soul is longing for that which is eternal because the soul is eternal. Within every pleasure of this world, there is a danger; there is the imminent end of this… Continue

Dina Sharana Dasi Becomes Second-Ever Female GBC Member



 At this year’s meetings of the Governing Body Commission—ISKCON’s ultimate managing authority—in Mayapur, India, German Srila Prabhupada disciple Dina Sharana Dasi became only the second-ever woman to accept the position of full-voting GBC member.

Her path there starts a decade ago: One day, while washing pots in her kitchen, she had what she callseingebungin German—a kind of inspirational vision in her mind—where Srila Prabhupada told her something that would change…

Tilaka: The Mark of God

By Nandlal

Anyone who wishes to acknowledge the simple truth that "I am Lord Krishna's servant" can wear tilaka, the clay mark devotees wear on the forehead and other places on their body. You may not feel you have much devotion to Krishna, but you're not prohibited from wearing tilaka, because it's a sign that you're trying to be His devotee. What's more, the qualifications for…

Worshipping Tulasi to Perfection





 

 

 While traveling in British Columbia last week, visiting Saranagati and attending the Ratha Yatra, we heard a most inspiring story at the Vancouver Temple.

Dr. Sukumaran is an Auyervedic doctor, originally from the town of Kotakala in Kerala state, where his family owns and operates one of the biggest auyervedic hospitals and herbal remedy centers in all of India. It was there that he met and married a Canadian devotee, Rudrani devi dasi. Due to her…

Truth and Beauty

Hare Krishna,
  
 
  A nice article
By A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, Back to Godhead Magazine #15,1967


It has often been argued whether truth and beauty are terms compatible with one another. One would agree willingly, some say, to express the truth, but since truth is not always beautiful—indeed it is frequently rather startling and unpleasant—how is one to express truth and…

Learning to think of Krishna always

Tamala Krsna: Can Krsna give us the ability to someday remember every

word that you are saying to us now? Because I myself, I forget so

much. I want to hear just how you are talking and I can't.



Prabhupada: What is that? I don't follow.



Tamala Krsna: I want to be able to hear you saying exactly what you're

saying now. I want to always be able to hear it, but I forget. My

memory is very poor.



Prabhupada: Why? No. If we try... Memory may be poor.… Continue

Remembering Srila Prabhupada - Simply Wonderfuls

Simply Wonderfuls



Bill was regularly helping Upendra in the kitchen and would delight in hearing him speak of the early days of Krsna consciousness in America. As Upendra busied himself stirring pots of vegetables and preparing a variety of savoury items, Bill would roll "Simply Wonderfuls" -- confections made from sugar, butter and powdered milk -- for the Sunday feast.… Continue
