Thought Of The Day

So Krsna is the master of the senses. The whole world is struggling for sense gratification. Here is the simple philosophy, truth, that "First of all let enjoy, let Krsna enjoy. He is the master. Then we enjoy." Tena tyaktena bhunjitha. The Isopanisad says everything belongs to Krsna. Isavasyam idam sarvam: [Iso mantra 1] "Everything belongs to Krsna." This is the mistake. Everything belongs to Krsna, but we are thinking, "Everything belongs to me." This is illusion. Aham mameti [SB 5.5.8].…

Thought Of The Day

So in this Kali-yuga, people are so much disturbed. Therefore, Krsna has come in the form of His name, Hare Krsna. Krsna has come not personally, but by His name. But because Krsna is absolute, there is no difference between His name and Himself. Abhinnatvan nama-naminoh. Nama-cintamani krsna-caitanya-rasa-vigrahah purnah suddho nitya-muktah. Name is full. As Krsna is full, complete, similarly, Krsna's name is also full, complete. Suddha. It is not material things. Purnah suddhah nityah.…

Remember What

It seems to me in modern times man prays and has attention for God for material gain. Once man has this, then he forgets. Example "dear God please help me get this job tomorrow"

No. Try again. Never use God. What does the cash in your wallet have to do with your soul? "Dear God, I remain knowing that you are always here, thank you for loving me, I will not forget so you can continue helping me grow and know and always strive to be a good person." There, that's better.

One Sunday…

Is your teenage son spiritually inclined? Is he one of those kids who like to be active in devotional service?
