Why I Became a Vegan

By Gauri Das

At a recent yoga class a student arrived wearing a black t-shirt that said in bold: Vegan. I later saw the same person passing in the street carrying a canvas bag printed with the word Vegan. It was an immediate turn off for me, even though I am now a vegan, an ahimsa vegan. 

Back in the 2007, when the RSPCA killed our cow…

20 Years Of The Stokes Stomp

By Madan Mohan Mohini dasi

In 1997 one of our local friends approached me and asked if we (our Hare Krsna community in N.Carolina) would like to take part in the yearly Stokes Stomp. Without even asking what the Stomp was, I answered yes because it sounded like a nice opportunity to meet people.

Upon inquiry I found out it was a festival…

Srila Prabhupada and his 10 point plan

By Kripamoya Das

In 1965 an elderly Indian gentleman boarded a steamship in Calcutta. He was a saffron-robed sadhu – a holy man – bound for America, a place he had never visited before, and a place where he had no friends. Almost 70, he had spent the last eight years in the sacred medieval town of Vrindavan, the home of Lord Krishna. In the last years of his life he wanted to…

The beautiful Gaura-Nitai deities of Karuna Bhavan – ISKCON Scotland

Srila Prabhupada: Our centers are like the oasis in a vast desert. In the desert there is no water, but occasionally if one is fortunate he may come in contact with an oasis and he is saved. Similarly in this material world we are drying up due to a lack of spiritual knowledge. Our ISKCON centers are meant to give relief to the dried up conditioned souls who are searching…

Prabhupada And The Mayavadi Arguments

By Achyutananda Prabhu

There were many swamis who came through New York in the 1950s and ‘60s.

Some of them were celebrity gurus, some were yogis, but they were all mayavadis.

They were clever but didn’t explain the entire nature of the Indian culture at all.

They’re what’s called “pancha-pasaka”.

They believe bhakti is only an…

Showers of Mercy Drench City of Pune

The post-monsoon rains were at a peak in Pune and Mumbai this month. The sky remained dim with heavy clouds for days, roads were flooded with rainwater, and muddy rivulets became a common sight across the city. We (the Pune congregation) were wondering if this sordid weather would spoil our plans to witness the 11th Monthly Sankirtan Festival (MSF) event at Pune scheduled for 23rd Sep 17. The MSF program was inaugurated at Pune by His…

Divine purpose of ancient Indian Temple dance

By Pratha Sharma, September 24, 2017

The dance forms were supposed to be so pure and pristine that the sculptures ornamenting these exquisite temples showed their postures, some of whom are quite rare and unique. Equally well are the stated “Agamas” or the rules for temple worship wherein dance and music are supposed to be inherent constituent of Deity worship. 

The Natya Shastra of Bharatmuni describes the divine origin of classical dance. As Lord Brahma…
