Krishna is for Everyone

"Most of the Western country, they are Christian. So the Christians

believe in ...Lord Jesus Christ as son of God. But we are presenting

the father, God Himself. So there is no contradiction. If there is

son, there must be a father also. Without father, there cannot be son.

So if you believe in the son, then you must believe in the father

also. The father is Kṛṣṇa. Kṛṣṇa says in the Bhagavad-gītā, [Bg.

14.44] He is the seed-giving father for all living entities.…

Reflections on Father’s Day by Giriraj Swami

Today, on Father’s Day, some devotees thought of me and wrote to me. I thought of Srila Prabhupada and a letter he wrote to a disciple: “You have accepted me as father, so I have also accepted you as my dear and real son. Relationship of father and son on spiritual platform is real and eternal; on the material platform such relationship is ephemeral and temporary.…

Panihati Cida-dadhi Festival, Laguna Beach by Giriraj Swami

“Lord Nityananda was by nature very merciful and funny. Being merciful, He spoke to Raghunatha dasa as follows. ‘You are just like a thief, for instead of coming near, you stay away at a distant place. Now that I have captured you, I shall punish you. Make a festival and feed all My associates yogurt and chipped rice.’ Hearing this, Raghunatha dasa was greatly pleased.” —Sri Caitanya-caritamrta Antya 6.49–51…

Surviving hardships by Kadamba Kanana Swami

We are experiencing how everything in this world goes through six transformations. Everything comes into being, it grows, it flourishes, it gives some by-products, then it begins to dwindle and eventually it ceases to exist. Such are the dynamics of this world. This shows us that whatever we have, is not ours. Whatever we have, is actually a gift which we get for a while over time and then Krsna takes it back. Sometimes gradually over time and…

Discovering It was Thrilling by Bhaktimarga Swami

Well, we honoured someone’s birthday today, in Govinda’s Dining Room.  We remembered Suniti—a sweet, sweet lady—sweet, sweet devotee.  We dared not ask her age.  She’s from Malaysia.  Her hubby, Keshava, was there, daughter-in-law and grandkids.  It was a low-key event but with great prasadam (food blessed to the max).  Friends came too.
 
After that warm meal, and warm people, a…

Predictions about Kali yuga that seem to be manifesting

Among the most striking of these passages from the Vedic sastras are the following:

In the Kali Yuga, wealth alone will be the deciding factor of nobility [in place of birth, righteous behavior or merit].And brute force will be the only standard or deciding what is righteous or just.

Mutual liking [and not family pedigree, social status, etc.]…

The background to this incident can be found in the early life of Srila Raghunatha dasa Gosvami. His uncle and father, Hiranya and Govardhana Majumadara, were wealthy landlords in Bengal—almost like kings—and had a huge, opulent…
