The Essence is Transcendence

By Kadamba Kanana Swami

Sometimes I feel that the temple is transcendental, the Bhagavad-gita is transcendental, the holy name is transcendental, and the devotees are transcendental. Everything is transcendental expect me; I am not transcendental. But to some extent we are elevated to the transcendental platform, because we are chanting Hare Krsna, taking Krsna prasadam and…

Checking Out Miguel by Bhaktimarga Swami

Miguel de Cervantes is the famed author of the fictitious character “Don Quixote” and is memorialized just a few blocks from Hare Krishna Centro.  It was natural to take a stroll there.  Gathering Narottam, a student from Mayapura, India, and Bhakta Jyan, of Guadalajara, to take the lead, browsing about became our way of winding down the day.

On The Road Again | Srila Prabhupada letter to Subal Swami

I’m on the road again, this time in Australia. I am missing Vrindavan, but happy to be sharing my good fortune with all.

“So, this is formal accepting of sannyasa, but real sannyasa will be fulfilled when you’ll be able to induce the people of the world to dance like you. That is real sannyasa. This formal dress is not sannyasa. Real sannyasa is when you can…

bhaktyā sañjātayā bhaktyā

Hare Krishna dear devotees,
