The Supremely loving one by Kadamba Kanana Swami

How is it that the all good, all merciful and kind Supreme Personality of Godhead who is just full of love, who is just the well-wisher and friend of every living being, who cares about every little plant, every little jiva, how is it that the Supreme Lord, the Supreme Controller, has arranged all the varieties of suffering that exist in this world?

This question…

The transcendental dimension by Kadamba Kanana Swami

In spiritual life there is always the transcendental dimension – the dimension of auspiciousness, of purification, of eternal benefit and of getting more and more mercy of Krsna. Sometimes we like the material side in spiritual life more – the temple, a festival, the cheese in the subji or devotees who are our friends and at…

The Purpose Of Worshiping Lord Shiva by HH Radhanath Swami

In the story of Bhrgu Muni, you know how Bhrgu Muni was sent by the sages to test who is the greatest amongst Brahma, Visnu and Siva. And in this regard Srila Prabhupada explains one’s greatness has to be estimated by one’s ability to tolerate provoking situations. That is greatness! One’s greatness has to be estimated by one’s ability to…

Shiva Ratri

  • Scriptures glorify that Lord Shiva is the topmost Vaishnava. We can see many references of this in Bagawad Gita, Bhagawatam and many Puranas.
  • In Srimad Bhagawatam we can see the instances when Pracetas pleased lord Shiva very much. Lord Shiva appeared before them and gave them the Narayana mantra (Srimad bhagawatam  4th canto 24th chapter).
  • Once a Brahmāna who is a sincere devotee of Lord Shiva asks for a…

Living With Chaos

16 years ago, after graduating from UCL with a management degree, I opted to leave it aside and embrace monastic life instead. Ironically, it’s all come full circle; dealing with people, projects and practicalities is a sizeable section on the modern…

Uttarakhand HC declares Ganga, Yamuna living entities, gives them legal rights!

The Uttarakhand high court on Monday declared the Ganga and Yamuna living entities, bestowing on them same legal rights as a person, a move that could help in efforts to clean the pollution-choked rivers.

The order also ends the five-day reign of New Zealand’s Whanganui River as the only one in the world to be granted living entity status.

The court’s order…

Chaitanya Charan Das: Question – When Ajamila chanted the names of Lord Hari with the wrong conception (i.e. with the conception of his son), then why did Vishnudutas appear over there?

When only one is ready

Today, Sri Prahlad prabhu gave the Sunday morning Srimad Bhagavatam talk from Canto 9, Chapter 19 (King Yayati achieves Liberation), verse 20.

In this verse, King Yayati is explaining to his wife the futility of pursuing material happiness. As a part of the royal family, they had ample resources to enjoy for a long time. Having taken youth from his son, the King was able to enjoy the vigour of his body as much as he wanted. However, as time passed, he gradually realised that it was a…

I want a new drug.

In the 1960s and 70s, young people all over America experimented with various drugs – LSD, psilocybin mushrooms, Marijuana, and others – hoping to taste something sublime.

Many of the popular songs of that era reflect the culture’s fascination with drugs and the possibilities they seemed to present. For instance, in 1967, the band, Jefferson Airplane, released the…

Turn down your world’s lights and enter Krishna’s world!

Mahatma das: Chanting means to enter Krishna’s world and put your world on hold.

It’s so ironic sometimes, when we’re chanting instead of being absorbed in Krishna or krishna leela or something about Krishna we are absorbed about what am I going to do later today, the problems I have to solve, the appointments I have to meet etc. So…

Artistic guidelines from Srila Prabhupada.

On one occasion, when Srila Prabhupada, and Goursundar and I, arrived in San Francisco, there was a new painting of Narada Muni hanging on the temple wall. I was impressed. It was one of Jadurani’s latest works. Jadurani’s technique had improved immeasurably, and her proportions were also much better. Her colors were more subtle, so the painting showed great technical…
