The Blind Well

The Blind Well

Once a prince went to forest for hunting. Suddenly a tiger attacked him. Prince fell down from his horse. As his bow was not in his hand, he quickly ran to save his life. While running, his feet got stuck in a creeper and he fell into a dry blind well. As he was felling down, he managed to hold two tree branches, which were hanging into the well. He looked up and found that the tiger is waiting for him on the top of the well. As his eyes got accustomed to see in dark, he…

how to offer bhoga to the Lord

Here is what Srila Prabhupada says about how to offer bhoga to the Lord:



Letter to Aniruddha Das, June 16, 1968



"So the purport is that everything should be offered very cleanly and pure things should be given. If a preparation is cooked all together, then offer all together. But if it is prepared separately, then the milk, the sugar…

How to Be Aloof from Aloofness?

Question: How to Be Aloof from Aloofness?


Why are we trying to find happiness in the material world even if there isn't any? How can Krishna consciousness teach me how to remain aloof from aloofness? How can I control my mind in a manner that is…

Prestige Seekers are Forgotten

In this material world everyone is looking for prestige, but no matter how much prestige they may accrue, they will still be completely humiliated by unavoidable death. And in due course of time all the reputations of even history's most prestigious heroes will vanish into oblivion. The pure devotees, on the other hand, are not seeking personal prestige. They simply desire to spread the name and fame of Lord Sri Krishna all over the world. But because Krishna desires that His pure devotees…

Remembering Srila Prabhupada - Visit to Auckland

Visit to Auckland



Friday, 14 April 1972

Krsna Tulasi and Jagattarini, who had both arrived in Auckland a few days before, had been busy making final arrangements for Srila…

Devotional Path

We should consider ourselves as the property of Supreme Lord Sri Krishna. This feeling will automatically subdue all desires for enjoyment of the material senses. Supreme Lord Sri Krishna is the embodiment of all transcendental mellows (rasas) so he is competent to accept the prayers of devotees of any of the different mellow.

Absolved of all kinds of material desires, whoever worships Supreme Lord Sri Krishna will surely get the opportunity to savor the highest order of the mellow of…

Sankirtan forces us to be very humble....

Sankirtan forces us to be very humble. Sankirtan gives us the opportunity to free ourselves from the false ego that has been building within us. When you do not go out on sankirtan, a lot of fat gets built on the body in the form of false ego, and that false ego further enhances the opportunity to develop material desires. Therefore sankirtan means dumping out our false…

Hari Naam(chanting of the Lord’s Name)

Although it is very difficult to achieve the state of a pure devotee, still our sole aim should be to attain it. All the material practices are quite attractive and appealing but they do not constitute pure devotion. Without achieving the state of self-realization, pure devotional service cannot be attained.All the scriptures and all our previous Spiritual Masters have encoded the pertinence of chanting, while giving up material acts, material knowledge, meditation, sacrifice, fasts and…

Why there are dualities in Nature?

Why there are dualities in Nature?



Dualities is mental concoction





In the world of duality -- that is to say, in the material world -- so-called goodness and badness are both the same. Therefore, in this world, to distinguish between good and bad, happiness and distress, is meaningless because…

Krishnize the World or Die Trying

My ongoing meditation is that we must either make the entire world Krishna conscious, or die trying to make the entire world Krishna conscious. These are the only two options. There is no third option because without Krishna consciousness nobody can be happy. Will we succeed?  The odds are stacked heavily against us. But there is one thing we can sure of. Lord Krishna will be greatly pleased with our endeavor, and when Krishna is pleased with us our… Continue

Remembering Srila Prabhupada - Risks for preaching

Risks for preaching



Thursday, 13 April 1972



Prabhupada had often described the attempts of his young disciples to spread Krsna consciousness in the Western world as "an adventure". He had written: "The whole Vedic adventure is to draw one's attention entirely unto the lotus feet of the Lord without any diversion." Such adventures, however, would not always be easy,…
