Door to Door



I was distributing in Auckland with a few Bhagavad Gita's, after an hour or so I ran out, we still had some SB 1.1.s, but I was lamenting a little because I'm pretty attached to Bhagavad Gita's. Bhakta Luke and myself went up to a door, a man answered, I told him we're monks, going around distributing these wonderful books about self realization and how to be…

Thought Of The Day

krsna bhuliya jiva bhoga vancha kare

pasate mayara tare japatiya dhare



Actually our position is to serve Krsna. That is real position. Caitanya Mahaprabhu starts His instruction from this point, that we are eternal servant of Krsna, and because we have rebelled not to serve, therefore Krsna, out of His unlimited mercy and compassion, He comes down and teaches, "You rascal, surrender. Why you are suffering unnecessarily?" Sarva-dharman…

Help from the Lord Compiled by Navina Nirada Dasa

Here are some experiences and realizations of devotees who give people Krsna consciousness through books by Srila Prabhupada and his followers.

Two Forms of the Lord

One day in Prague in 1996 I was supposed to be distributing books, but I couldn't get up the nerve to approach anyone. After a while I became upset with myself.
"How can you just sit here while these people walking by are searching for the very books you're…

Thought Of The Day

So Durga-devi is keeping you captivated. When Krsna says, "Let him go," immediately released. Immediately you are released. And when Krsna says, "Keep him under your control," so you have to remain. So we are captivated now within this material world. We are announcing that "We are independent. Whatever we like, we can do." These are all foolishness. You are entangling yourself, simply entangling. A little mistake -- you'll have to suffer. Just like in our daily affairs you can eat so much.…

Justice for others but mercy for me!

Can any one of us very confidently say that we have never done anything wrong in our lives? We haven’t behaved in a shoddy or disrespectful way with others? The interesting aspect of our life is that we tend to forget something wrong which we do to others but always remember what others have done to us. We always vie for a person’s blood who misbehaved with us, spoke to us arrogantly or did not show any respect to us. The sight of that person agitates us, their success pains us. We always…

Digambara: Some people say that society is advancing with the increase of knowledge in the world, and eventually it will be like heaven on earth.

Advaita: That is simply fantasy. It is quite extraordinary that people have faith in this, and it is even more bizarre that others have the audacity to…

In fact, the mind is our only enemy.......................Nectarean Mellows

In fact, the mind is our only enemy.......................Nectarean Mellows

Bhagavad-Gita tells us - for one who controls the mind, the minds is the best of friends. But for one who fails to do so, the mind is the greatest enemy. In fact, the mind is our only enemy. And the nature of the mind, although it is impelling,…
