The mind: a friend or an enemy? by Mahatma das

Mahatma das: Ignore the Mind!

Our acaryas advise us to learn to ignore our mind. Why? Well, we shouldn’t ignore it when we are thinking of Krsna. But in our conditioned state, the mind really has a mind of its own. When we decided to become devotees, the mind didn’t agree. And it still is resisting surrender. When the mind presents…

Are you convinced? by Ragalekha Devi Dasi

Conviction cannot be based on intellectual understanding. Are we convinced that Krsna consciousness is true? Yes, I am because it makes sense. But that’s just the beginning and it is a lot more than that. It has to be experienced in the heart. It must be really felt that Krsna consciousness is the most wonderful thing. That’s living on the cutting edge and spiritual life is about living on the cutting edge!

Accept guidance from others, that is true humility

By Ananda Vrindavan Dasi
 
So humility is the key element in our spiritual life. Humility means that we are ready to put our own ideas aside, and that is an essential element in humility. It is not that necessarily one is always walking with the head a little bowed down, looking at the ground with folded…

Spiritual Apathy…why?

It does not take long to realize, after writing a thing or two.. about a spiritual thing or two, to see that the greater audience of devotees are apathetic…especially when talking about the true goal of Krishna consciousness, developing pure love of Krishna. For true, it is not a flower in the sky… it is a million times more real than you presently are, or could ever…

The Stars and Us

In a recent conversation I heard about a person’s struggle with life, and having the ‘it never rains but it pours’ experience. “What did I do to deserve this?” he mused.

“Something”, I replied.

That was almost as painful for him to hear as his present situation. And he couldn’t accept it. “Are you telling me,” he ventured, “that I have caused as much pain to another that I am experiencing…

Hare Krishna! The Mantra and the Swami who Started it All in Lithuania

By Dr. Ausra Maldeikiene

When I’m really happy, I cry: happiness is somewhere deep in the throat and it is excited by hope and light-carrying tears. Then, on March 11, 1990, I waited with tears in my eyes while watching television until late evening. Then, right after I heard the words proclaiming Lithuania’s Independence, sipped a glass of cognac – I remember that we had no…

Potency of reading Srila Prabhupada’s Books

We all have our own experiences of reading Srila Prabhupada’s books and getting better understanding of our philosophy, principles, etc. As we develop more faith, study his books more carefully, also hear them from the mouth of the pure devotees, then we get realisations in our heart. This blissful and transcendental process forever continues in the life a sincere and a…

Confessions of a Prasadam Addict: Maha is as Good as Gold By Taru Das

“And when the spiritual master sees the devotees are taking bhagavat prasadam, he is satisfied” – Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakur.

If there is any other instruction which the devotees of New Vrindaban have taken up more seriously than the one above, I have yet to run across it. In their undaunted endeavors to obtain bhagavat prasadam, devotees have crossed…

Is the Bhagavad-gita Pessimistic? By Chaitanya Charana Dasa

From Back to Godhead

Four points to consider regarding Lord Krishna’s characterization of life in the material world.

After teaching a university seminar, I was asked questions I had myself raised when I first encountered the philosophy of Krishna consciousness: “Why is the Vedic philosophy so pessimistic? When the world offers both pleasures and pains,…

The Science of Association By Acyuta Dasa

The pure devotees of the Lord carry the message of Godhead in order to deliver the fallen souls, and therefore the common man who is bewildered by the influence of the external energy of the Lord should avail himself of their…
