“As It Is”

By Kesava Krsna Dasa

We might take the “As It Is” in our Bhagavad-gita title for granted. All authors want to be different and original. With many versions of Bhagavad-gita already available, Srila Prabhupada’s “As It Is” addition was a very bold and provocative one. He is saying, “this is it, how it should be, the definitive and genuine Bhagavad-gita”. Who else can claim this with confidence?

Considering that there are many ways of looking at…

Why did Lord went with Bali Maharaj as his `gatekeeper' ?

Hare Krishna.

29th June, 2015. Gurgaon

Bali Maharaj, Vamana Deva

Some days back, after a class describing Krishna’s appearance as Vamana Deva, I had an interesting discussion with Shyamsundar Prabhuji on how Lord was more favourable to Bali maharaj than Indra, for whose apparent and immediate help Lord came as Vamana Deva. In the past I also had questions like what prompted…

Is initiation necessary ? Can one return to the spiritual world without it ?

All the visiting devotees from New Zealand attended the morning walk. One of the questions posed by a devotee highlighted the confusion that still remained about the need to take to the formalities of spiritual life.

Srila Prabhupada had already confronted this apparent hesitancy the previous night when the boy had suggested that one could just accept one's guru in his heart, without going through the actual physical motions of initiation. And now -- more confusion.

A devotee…

PURITY IS FORCE (From Srila Prabhupada's letter to Sudama - Bombay 23 December 1972)

If you simply keep to our standard program,

don't try to invent anything "Road Show" or "Yoga Village"

that means chanting daily 16 rounds, rising early, attending mangala arati, like that, if this program is strictly maintained amongst all the devotees, they will remain pure, and if preaching is pure, automatically leaders, managers, funds, everything will be…

The Divine Love



Love is a natural propensity of the soul. However, pure love can factually be experienced only in relation with the Supreme Lord and He alone can perfectly reciprocate our love. For the spirit soul to repose love on something non-spiritual, based on considerations such as bodily relationship, is superficial, incompatible, and therefore quite unfulfilling, often ending in frustration. In fact, God is the active principle of everything; thus whatever is…
