Thought Of The Day

A person can be completely engaged in Krsna consciousness business if he is completely sinless. Of course, by becoming Krsna conscious, even there is little tinge of sin, it is evaded gradually. But one should be very alert. It is not that "Because I am Krsna conscious, and by becoming Krsna conscious or chanting Hare Krsna mantra, I am getting out of the jurisdiction of sinful activities..." This should never be thought of. We should be very much alert, because maya is very strong. As soon…

A devotee saves the generations

He is a miserly man who does not solve the problems of life as a human and who thus quits this world like the cats and dogs, without understanding the science of self realization.”

Generations after generations have passed devoid of having one word in their dictionary and that word is: Self realization. The scriptures say that the purpose of life is not sense gratification but self-realization. When a person considers sense gratification the aim of life, he…

Thought Of The Day

So there are different classes of men, crow society and swan society. The swan society is different from the crow society. How you can make equal? The people are making, try to make classless society. It is not possible to make classless society because every living entity is being controlled by a different quality. So the qualitative distinction must be there. You cannot make them classless. It is all imagination. The crow class, the swan class, the pigeon class, the dog class, even in the…

RADHEY RADHEY

Radhey Radhey...

O'er the neue Jahr weekend maid, me and mom landed in Vrindavan. I'd been wanting to go there a while, and it was strange that in all these years in Delhi, I never had. The first sight, isn't pretty. There are animals all around like the cows and pigs you see in India, blocking traffic, jumping from one open drain to another, feeding on food from open garbage dumps- which are visible in every…

I LOVE KRISHNA

hough the issue of freedom has long since revolved around government’s restriction of it, the real yearning for liberty comes from within the spirit soul, who cannot even act out its natural propensity when residing within a large body and having a giant field to run on. Only through the proper outlets is the natural love found within the heart allowed to be set free, to run in every which direction without exhaustion. For a soul constantly in touch with the divine consciousness, a liberated…

KRISHNA LOVE

Prabhupada: ...He was traveling in South India. He saw one brahmana reading Bhagavad-gita. And persons who knew him, that "That man was illiterate," it was not possible for him to read Bhagavad-gita... But still, he was trying to read it, and crying also. So while others were criticizing, Chaitanya Mahaprabhu came to him, "Brahmana, what you are reading?" So he could understand that "This person, He's not come here to criticize me. He's serious." So he talked seriously,…

Peace
