Radharani Is So Great

(Adapted from Srila Prabhupada’s talk on Radhastami, 1971.)

We pray to Radharani because She is the pleasure potency of Krishna. Krishna means “all-attractive,” but Radharani is so great that She attracts Krishna.

So we should try to understand what is Srimati Radharani’s position and offer our obeisances to Her.…

Stop Writing Your Own Books , Distribute Prabhupada 's Book

Of late I have noticed one disturbing thing in Iskcon  which I want to write about. Many of Iskcon Sanyasis and senior devotees are more into writing their own books and spending their energies to push them. Instead they should concentrate on distribution of Prabhupad's books. Prabhupad's books alone have the potency to turn the reader into a Krishna devotee. More over a number books written by second and third generation of devotees are not hundred percent faithful to gaudiya…

शास्त्रों में देवताओं की उपासना का वर्णन श्री कृष्ण की समस्त जीवों पर असीमित करुणा का परिचायक है। (Part 2)

"ऐश्वर्यस्य समग्रस्य वीर्यस्य यशसा: श्रीयः ज्ञान वैराग्ययोश चैव सन्नम भग इतिंगना"(विष्णु पुराण 6.5.47)।
