Not So Vegetarian!

Processed fast food is very popular in the world today, and even devotees often take bread, chips and other items. You may be aware that many of those products are not healthy, but what some people don't know is that many of them are also not vegetarian.

Even if you read the label, it can be misleading. For example, "natural flavors" can often refer to non-veg items. Such ingredients are very common in processed food today. An article last year on CNN reported:

ILL EFFECTS OF NEGATIVE AURA

HARE KRISHNA,

We all are a product of our thoughts and action.  As our most dearest Lord Sri Krishna has conveyed in our Divine Bhagavad Gita a mere thought even when not coupled with action is subject to his scrutiny and his evaluation, so much so for the actual action which one can definitely imagine how much it can be instrumental in our assessment.  Every of our thoughts and action is marked and graded by our dearest Lord Sri Krishna based on which our soul gets the…

Stuff & Simplicity

Yesterday I was in the garden. We had to uproot the weeds that had gathered around the small marigold plants. There were so many weeds that at times it was hard to find the marigolds.

Today I was at home, cleaning the clutter which gathers so easily in so many corners and from so many places. There was so much stuff that I couldn’t think straight.  When I have a headache, my husband tells me to clean. He knows me well!  Cleaning always makes me feel better.

Hare Krishna devotees remove their shoes as they step into the meditation room each morning.

Outside, birds chirp and a waterfall cascades into a koi pond. It is quiet — for now.

The compound is like another world.

The wail of a conch shell signifies the start of a ceremony and the room fills with music as devotees bow and chant, acknowledging both Krishna, a name for God in…
