Letting go.

"Relinquishing all ideas of righteousness, surrender unto Me alone; I will deliver you from all sinful reactions. Do not despair." Bhagavad-Gita 18.66

I'd like to tell you a story. It's one I've told a few times lately.

When I received my first copy of the Gita, I just didn't get it. I was impressed, to be sure. I just wasn't sure why. I was seventeen at the time, and honestly, considering the mix of hormones and stupidity endemic to the adolescent condition, it's a wonder… Continue

SDGonline - Japa Essay

Japa essay

Japa should be a time for prayer, turning to Krishna in His holy names. It should not be just numbers and hurrying to get them done. I’m a little guilty of that. Nevertheless, it’s a great accomplishment to get your rounds done and should not be overlooked. Early mornings are meant for this. Getting up and diving into your rounds, watching the count rise, enunciating the syllables even without thinking so much about them. The names are Krishna and Radha. It’s… Continue

Letter from Sarva Bhavana (armenian devotee, author of the book "Salted Bread")

I can not forgive myself whatever happened to one of our real hero in

Armenia Bhakta Armen Sargsyan, and you know him personally too.

Tough I was not even in the country and he never approached me for any help

ever, yet I feel very bad and guilty what had happened to hem.

After the jail and psychiatric hospital Armen was feeling very bad due to

many wrong medicines and injections and slowly slowly he started to have some

mental problems and was unable to work and… Continue

jAI jAGANNATH!!!!!!!!


Lord Jagannath beckons me with his hands outstretched,

Beautiful dark eyes widespread,

So loving and merciful with a countenance divine.

Seeing him makes the whole world fine.

Oh lord, every year you keep me in your thought,

And see that I come, against all odds fought.

Really you darshan makes me fresh

Seeing your devotees removes all my stress.

Again this year I…

Gauranga is calling...

Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare

"...this sankirtana or street chanting must go on, it is our most important program. Lord Caitanya's movement means the sankirtana movement. You may simply take two hours for chanting sixteen rounds daily, two hours for reading congregationally, and balance of time go out for sankirtana. We must do both, reading books and distributing books, but distributing books is the main propaganda."… Continue

A Lesson Well Learnt!!

This post could well be titled “Inspiring Devotees Part II” but just for the sake of it I decided to change it a little. Before I relate the story let me write in something about my own self –

When I had just started chanting and was quite new to the philosophy I aspired to become a Gopa in Goloka Vrindavan, that because I am not very fond of girly chores that keep the Gopis busy all day besides Krishna spends most of His time with the Gopas so that was it I wanted to be a cowherd… Continue

Words of Wisdom from Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura!!

1. We are put to test and trial in this world. Only those who attend the kirtana of the devotees can succeed.

2. Every spot on earth where discourses on God are held is a place of pilgrimage.

3. Possession of objects not related to Krsna is our main malady.

4. Let me not desire anything but the highest good for my worst enemies.

5. As dalliance with the body in luxury increases, so wanes the spirit of service of the Lord.

6. Those favored… Continue
