The Boatman and the Scholar (from Prabhupadacast)

An interesting story has been described by our Satsvarūpa Mahārāja in the Back to Godhead: The learned scholar and the boatman. The boatman... In Bengal there are many rivers, and so people generally transport by boat service. So a learned scholar from Calcutta, say, was going home in the village on a boat, and he was very happy. So he was asking the boatman, "My dear boatman, do you know what are these stars, this astronomy, how they are working?" "No,…

Those dear as life one can never forget

Memories Of HH Tamal Krishna Maharaja

Sarajevo, March 19, 2002

Dear Tamal Krishna Maharaja, my dear brother, friend and helper.

Feeling your separation we remember Lord Krishna’s words:

When somehow made mindful of those one loves, one is given back one’s life. Forgetting those more dear than one’s own breath is more painful than dying. Those dear as life one can never forget, but when reminded of them in a special way one feels happy,… Continue

The famous Sloka from Bhagvad Gita appears in the Bhagavatam as well.

Before it comes a sweet verse:

MAYA is strong but KC is more strong

A young hippy asked Srila Prabhupada, "If our purpose is to go back to

Godhead, why is Maya so strong?" Without the slightest hesitation Srila

Prabhupada profoundly and poetically answered, "Because your purpose is not


In other words Maya, the Lord's illusory energy, only has power over us to

the extent that we are not determined to go back to home, back to Godhead.

If we are determined to become fully Krishna conscious and not take birth

Sri Srimad Gour Govinda Swami Maharaja

The Ramayana describes how Lord Rama built a bridge and crossed the ocean to Lanka. Before the battle with Ravana began, Ravana’s youngest brother Vibhishan came to take shelter of Rama.

innocent killing materialistic people

Americans consume almost a quarter of all the beef produced in the world. Every 24 hours 100,000 cattle are slaughtered in the United States; the average American consumes the meat of seven 1,100- pound animals in his or her lifetime.

According to a report by the U.S. Surgeon General, more than 70 percent of deaths in this country -- more than 1.5 million annually -- are related to diet, particularly the over- consumption of beef and other foods high in cholesterol and… Continue

More You Enjoy, More You Want to Enjoy

Srila Prabhupada says example of a person who eats a lot at home, and goes to restaurant and drinks tea, biscuits, even after being full. It is not that senses are demanding; they are satisfied but the mind is demanding. Senses are just following the commands of uncontrolled mind. What is wrong in this uncontrolled enjoyment? Even Charavaka says the same thing, "Just eat, drink and be merry in life. Live life king size, allowing senses in the direction they want..." that is his philosophy. But… Continue

Chant Unpretentiously, Honestly and Humbly

BhaktiVinod Thakur condemns five things in Sarnagati prayers: He says “Hell with my high birth! Hell with my so called education! Hell with the fame of my family which I am very often proud of!” Because people are generally proud of their high birth and fame of their family and high erudite learning. This way he condemns different aspects of his life. He says "What is the use of all these things because I am not engaged in the devotional service of the Lord”.

Just like in the… Continue
