It is for this reason that devotees refrain from eating meat, fish, and eggs, as it is viewed as the unnecessary slaughter of living entities. By refraining from killing these living entities, and by ensuring to offer all acceptable foodstuffs to Lord Krishna before all meals, Hare Krishna devotees engage in karma-free cooking and eating. One who offers his foodstuffs to… Continue

The True Meaning of AVATAR!

"Nowadays the word 'Avatara' has become very cheap in some parts of India. Although Krishna had said in the Bhagavad Gita, yada yada hi dharmasya – glanir bhavati bharata . . . sambhavami yuge yuge” – He will come in every yuga, we see that in India there are about a few dozens of avataras. …

Harinama

Harinama sankirtan is the congregational chanting of the holy name of the Lord. It was inaugurated by Lord Caitanya, who is Krishna Himself, 500 years ago in Bengal India. Chanting the holy names of the Lord not only benefits the chanter, but anyone who hears the holy name receives eternal spiritual benefit.



Now devotees following in Lord Caitanya’s footsteps chant the holy name of the Lord to spiritually uplift everyone. Devotees have become a familiar sight in many citites and towns… Continue

Till Death Do Us Part. And Then?

I've been seeing a lot in the news about the debate over gay marriage, but this article won't be about gay marriage. It will be about what gay marriage represents: the idea that we can be happy by making an arrangement in the material world.



People fighting for causes, right or wrong, are trying to make an arrangement to be happy until death, but however long we may enjoy our triumph before we die, we will have much longer to live afterward.



If our cause cannot help us go… Continue

Wake Up and Chant

Wake up, wake up, and chant, O sleeping soul.

Lord Caitanya has come to show the way.

The Maya witch has held you in her sway.

Too long you've let illusion take its toll.



You've been asleep. You've long forgot the goal.

Now chant the Mahamantra night and day.

Wake up, wake up, and chant, O sleeping soul.

Lord Caitanya has come to show the way.



You've roamed this world of night from pole to pole,

Although you promised once you'd never… Continue

The Journey Back to Godhead!

"As we are going back to the spiritual planet, we may happen to go by a visual tour. Sometimes the yogis want to see how the universe looks like, so go round and see a few planets on the way back to Godhead. But if there is danger, we get stuck up.
