DYING FEARLESSLY

A man who treats the joys and sorrows of life alike is one who knows no fear even at the time of death. If pleasure is a part of life, then death is equally a reality too.

Those who are constantly worrying about something or thinking whether others might deprive them of something can never…

ROBBER GETS MOKSHA

The story is told of a devout person, called Pundarika, who perfomed all the rites prescribed in the Vedas, but was unable to get moksha. He asked Sage Narada what was the reason for this.

Remembering Srila Prabhupada - Srila Prabhupada's Loving Followers

Srila Prabhupada's Loving Followers



Srila Prabhupada was sometimes quite frank about his followers. "I am engaging fools, rascals, anyone to spread Krsna consciousness."Srila Prabhupada Lilamrta, Volume 6, p.1954 "We have to select men from the worst class. Those who were finished, tenth class."Once, Prabhupada compared himself to Lord Rama, who had crossed the ocean to bring Laxmi from the hands of the demons to Bharata.

On Srila Prabhupada's Spiritual Revolution



If the preachers in our Krsna consciousness movement are sincere devotees of Krsna, Krsna will always be with them because He is very kind and favorable to all His devotees. Just as Arjuna and Krsna were victorious in the Battle of Kuruksetra, this Krsna consciousness movement will surely emerge victorious if we but remain sincere devotees of the Lord and serve the Lord according to the advice of predecessors (the six… Continue
