My little realisations



some of my realisations as I sold a property to buy a home.



1. As the deal went up and down, I realised my prayers have improved !! I would chant but was not praying too much but now the prayers started !  I prayed constantly to let me go thru all the anxiety but please take over the home I was buying to establish as Krishna's new abode.



2.  I realised, and could appreciate, a litlle bit, why Kunti Maharani was asking for more and more trouble.

Thought Of The Day

So this is the process. Krsna is also finding always opportunity, "How to serve My pure devotee?" And pure devotee's so clever that he won't accept any service from Krsna. Just like the Arjuna, he never said, "Krsna, You are God. Why You are putting me to war indirectly? You can give me everything." Krsna said, "No." He never said that, Arjuna. Krsna said, niyatam kuru karma tvam karma jyayo hy akarmanah: "You are ksatriya. You have to fight." He never said. So we should not take God as…

Is it proper to touch a Sannyasi’s feet ?

One should not touch the lotus feet of a saintly person or sannyasi with his enjoyment-prone body or sinful body. If the saintly person becomes displeased as a result of our touching his lotus feet, then it will certainly create inauspiciousness for…

The True Arya-Bhakti Raghava Swami

According to the Vedic teachings, civilized human beings are those who belong to the Aryan culture. The word `arya` does not refer to any specific nation or country, as many have been wrongly taught, rather the word is used to designate those who cultivate spiritual awareness, in particular the highest level of spiritual emancipation, `ananda-maya`, `pure devotional` service in Krishna consciousness.

Thought Of The Day

Anyone who is not Krsna conscious, anyone who does not understand Krsna, he is within these groups. What are these groups? Duskrtina. Duskrtina means one has got merit, but the merit is utilized for sinful activities. You can use your merit two ways -- for good purpose and for bad purpose also. Just like thieves and rogues, they have got merit. They know how to steal, how to cheat. It is not unintelligent. They are intelligent. But their intelligence, merit, is used for bad purposes. They…
