Sharing the womb in suffering



Samjna, the wife of Vivasvan, the sun-god, gave birth to the Manu named Sraddhadeva, and the same fortunate wife also gave birth to the twins Yamaraja and the River Yamuna. Then Yami, while wandering on the earth in the form of a mare, gave birth to the Asvini-kumaras.

Sex urge will not disturb them!

1968 Correspondence

If they are strong enough in Krishna Consciousness any amount of sex urge will not disturb them. Even it disturbs, it will come and go, Krishna is Madan Mohan, or the Enchanter of Cupid. And Cupid is the god of sex desire. So if anyone wants to enchant Cupid, instead of being enchanted by…

Room Conversation with Srila Prabhupada August 5, 1974,Vrindavan

Prabhupada: ...the business of the representative of Krishna to push the nipple. (?) Because they know what is the necessity. The whole world is upset for want of Krishna consciousness. This is the necessity. It is not a, I mean to say, whimsical sporting. It is the necessity. But they do not know. It is a very responsible task. That is called prayojana. Is it clear? What do you think? Huh?

Svarupa Damodara: Yes,…

Thought Of The Day

"It is better to think that spiritual advancement depends on our effort. Otherwise you will just wait for mercy. In English there is a saying, God helps those who help themselves. Krishna also says, ‘All of them, as they surrender unto Me, I reward them accordingly’. So the key is attentive chanting.

The Nectar of the Holy Name - Material contamination begins with these four Bad Habits!

For those who want to be initiated in this Society for Krsna

consciousness, there are four principles: no illicit sex, no

intoxication, no meat-eating, and no gambling. We don't say, "No sex."

But we do say, "No illicit sex." If you want sex, get married and have

Krsna conscious children. "No intoxication" means not even taking tea

or coffee—to say nothing of other intoxicants. And there is no

gambling and no meat-eating (including fish and eggs). Simply…

PAIN of BIRTH





As human beings, we should be cognizant that we are suffering the pains of birth, old age, disease and death and should be inquisitive to know how to avoid these miseries. We have been suffering from the beginning of our birth when as a baby we were tightly placed for nine months in the womb of a mother. After birth, suffering continues; although a mother may take much care for her child, the baby still cries. Why? Because he is suffering. Either a bug is biting, or there is a pain in… Continue

*** KRISHNA IS ADHOKSAJA ***

Krishna is Adhoksaja, difficult to understand but through the medium of devotional service what is difficult becomes easy. Those who engage on the path of devotional service they can gradually understand the Lord depending upon their degree of surrender.

Srila Prabhupada came down to the temple around mid-morning and sat down on a gold satin cushion on the floor…

@*@*@*@ Association Of Devotee @*@*@*@

There may be so many faults in devotees but at least they will tell others to chant “Hare Krishna”, at least they will tell other to surrender to Lord Krishna, and Hence one will be victorious over maya. One must take full advantage of the devotees association.

Thought Of The Day

If there is little pain in the finger, I become so much disturbed because I have got intimate connection with this finger. Similarly,we have got intimate connection with Krishna, and we are fallen. Therefore, Krishna also feels little pain, and therefore, He comes down. Krishna is feeling pain. So you become Krishna conscious.Then Krishna will feel pleasure. (Conversations, Vrindavan, 24th April, 1975).

Drop all negative references to your past

One of the most severely limiting beliefs that many of us have is that the person we were yesterday is the person we have to be today. This belief keeps us tied to our past mistakes, habits, and limitations. 



We somehow buy into the notion that if we weren’t successful yesterday, we certainly can’t be successful today or tomorrow.



If you can see how ridiculous and self-defeating this belief is, you can make an…

Hiranyasa and Hiranyakasipu

Twin delivery



There is an authoritative Vedic literature called Pinda-siddhi in which the scientific understanding of pregnancy is very nicely described. It is stated that when the male secretion enters the menstrual flux in the uterus in two successive drops, the mother develops two embryos in her womb, and she brings forth twins in a reverse order to that in which they were first conceived; the child conceived first is born later, and the one conceived later is brought forth first.… Continue

Srila Prabhupada's preaching spirit

Preaching Spirit



Before leaving for the temple that afternoon, Srila Prabhupada had

been sitting in his room talking with his senior disciples. Scholarly,

bespectacled Pradyumna had come to Prabhupada with various technical

questions on Sanskrit vocabulary. Prabhupada, as he often did, had

turned the conversation into a full-blown philosophical discussion.

The devotees present had relished the opportunity of witnessing

Prabhupada's exhilarating presentation of… Continue

Avoid the phrase: I have to go to work

This article has to do with six of the most common words in the English language: “I have to go to work.” 



In all probability, it’s absolutely true that you do “have to” got to work. Nevertheless, these particular words carry with them some really negative baggage that, I believe, is self-destructive.



Other than your thoughts, your words are your primary entry point into your experience. When you “have” to do something, it implies that it’s not… Continue

Be sincere & try to serve Krishna

Always thinking of Krsna.



Man-mana bhava mad-bhaktah. Real thing is bhaktya, not official. Not

official. Patram puspam phalam toyam yo me bhaktya prayacchati. He

does not accept anything even it is not offered with bhakti and by the

bhakta. He does not accept. Why He shall accept? Is He hungry like me?

No. He simply wants to see how you have learned to love Krsna, bhakti,

how you are eager to serve Krsna. That is... Krsna wants to see.

Otherwise He does not… Continue
