Viral satellite image of 'India on Diwali night' has nothing to do with Diwali

New Delhi: For the last few years a satellite image purportedly showing an illuminated India on Diwali night unfailingly does the rounds on social media websites. But the fact is the image put up by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Geophysical Data Centre has nothing to do with Diwali, the festival of lights. While not exactly a hoax, it is something shown out of context.



The image in question is actually an overlay of different photos taken…

happiness and enjoys himself through transcendental senses. Established thus,

one never departs from the truth." (Bg. 6.21)

A Tribute To Gopiparanadhan Prabhu - By H.H. Radhanath Swami

 

I am beside myself with grief and am speechless while trying to digest the reality that His Grace Gopiparanadhana Prabhu has been taken away by Krishna. Krishna’s plan is always perfect but when it manifests in the passing away of such an intimate, loving Godbrother as Gopiparanadhana Prabhu it is painful. But our solace is in our deep…

How To Resist Temptations?

 

HARE KRISHNA !

How To Resist Temptations?





One of the disciples approached his Guru with a heavy heart. When enquired of his troubled face he said, “Guruji, I am fed up with temptations. At each moment and every place I am tempted. I fear that I will have to leave this life of solitude and prayer due to the irresistible temptations that suppress the joy of my life.”



The Guru consoled him saying, “Don’t worry my child. There is a solution for your…

Soul and Sri Guru

Several births yet soul didn't see him,
Several miles yet soul didn't find him,
Several sermons yet soul didn't hear him,
Several places yet soul didn't knew him,
Several breathes yet soul didn't feel him,
Several people but only Sri Guru showed Sri Krishna lives within.

Beware the Firecracker Rakshasa!





Meena’s tearful parents and I watched helplessly through the glass pane separating us from the room where the doctors were desperately fighting to save little Meena’s life. It was an accident…it is always an accident…My neighbours’ child Meena was trying to light a ‘fountain’ firecracker and in the dark, she had not noticed the string of live ‘atom-bomb’ firecrackers that someone else had lit nearby. The little girl had been caught in…
