we can only improve ourselves - and that is a gradual process

Srila Prabhupada has stated that we can only improve ourselves - and that is a
gradual process. Certainly life in this world is difficult for everyone and the main
difficulty is becoming Krsna conscious. That is a very personal thing. Your Krsna
consciousness is your own responsibility. You should not blame your difficulties on
your husband/wife. Sure, things could be better if…

Your Japa Creates Your Day

Our daily chanting of the Hare Krishna mahamantra on japa beads is the most significant event of our day. It is our daily opportunity to have a personal, private meeting with God. Therefore the mood in which we chant is of the utmost importance. If our minds are wandering somewhere else during our japa, it will be difficult to remember Krishna throughout the day, and our day will be a struggle. But if we fix our minds nicely on on the mahamantra during our japa meditation, it will be easy to…

Train your consciousness to be in connection to the holy name

Create a temple in your home and teach your family, how to come together to chant. The family that prays together stays together. When we pray, the holy name is a prayer; it is the most powerful prayer of the heart. And individually, we should train our consciousness to be in connection to the holy name from chanting of Japa, individual meditation and through this process of purification, our home is Vaikuntha, our life is the life of the devotee of God. It is very simple. And there is…

Quest for Happiness



Suppose a man is thrown into the ocean. He may be an expert swimmer, but he cannot be happy in the ocean because he is out of his natural condition of life. The only way he will become happy is if someone picks him up from the ocean and places him on the land.



So if we are serious, if we actually want to be happy, we must take to the cultivation of spiritual understanding, an understanding of Krishna consciousness. Of course, in every country of the world… Continue

In early August, 1972, Mohanananda voluntarily relinquished his position as the… Continue
