Many Plans and Krishna’s Plan

So far your thinking about things and making so many plans, that is all
right, but our first business is Krishna’s plan. That is the only plan, and
no matter how many schemes we employ to adjust things in this material
world, if they have no solid basis in Krishna’s plan, they remain merely
dreams of phantasmagoria. SP letter, 72-04-10

Staunch Affection for Krishna Will Save Us

Please be always strongly fixed up in the Lotus Feet of Krishna, just as the

bees are fixed up in the honeycomb. This staunch affection for Krishna will

save us from all kinds of dangers created by Maya. You know it very well

that the material energy is so strong that it captivates the spiritual

spark, living entity and the only remedy is to cling to the Lotus Feet of

Krishna. This age is especially meant for dissension, therefore whenever

there is such occasion we… Continue

SILVER FOILS ARE NOT VEGETARIAN

The silver foils are not very expensive. They are sold by weight. Ordinarily, you can buy a packet of 160 foils for a price between Rs.100 to 200. That is, approximately one rupee per foil. Not only the sweets, now a days it is also applied on fruits. Some Ayurvedic medicines also are wrapped in silver foils.



They are made by hammering thin sheets of silver in middle of booklets made of a bull's intestines. In other words, after slaughtering a bull, quickly his intestines are…

Can Somebody Answer?

I was asked to read Bhagavat Gita. I find it difficult to read such a thick book.


Can anyone answer what is in Bhagavat Gita. I would like to know the answer in bullet points as I find it difficult to comprehend when it is in sentences.

Necessary tapasya: reading, rising early‏

If you simply take little trouble to understand Krsna... That tapasya required: to read Krsna's instruction, Bhagavad-gita, Srimad-Bhagavatam, and try to understand Krsna. Because that tapasya, if you take little painful...It is not painful. It is very pleasing. But we avoid it. We think it is painful. "Ah! Who is going to read books? We are meant for selling books,not for reading books." This is not good. We should read also. That is tapasya. Saddhaya. That is tapasya. Don't think that simply… Continue

New finds take archaeologists closer to Krishna From Times of India, 27 Dec 2008

CHENNAI: The conch and the Sudarshana Chakra are unmistakable. Although the figures do not match popular images of Kirshna sporting a peacock feather, archaeologists are convinced that the coins are of Krishna, revered as an avatar of Vishnu.





"These square coins, dating back to 180- BC, with Krishna on one side and Balram on the other, were unearthed recently in Al Khanoun in Afghanistan and are the earliest proof that Krishna was venerated as a god, and that the worship had… Continue

The Lord's chest, face, arms, and feet‏

The Lord's chest is the abode of the goddess of fortune. His moonlike face is the drinking vessel for eyes which hanker after all that is beautiful.His arms are the resting places for the administrative demigods. And His lotus feet are the refuge of pure devotees who never talk or sing of any subject except His Lordship.

Thinking of liberation in political terms

Narottama dasa Thakura sang, “I have wasted my life not worshiping Radha and Krishna.” The human form of life is meant for understanding Krishna. The world is being spoiled. By understanding Krishna, people become liberated, but people do not know. They are thinking of liberation in political terms. They are thinking of liberation from Britain. Prabhupada said that before independence from Britain, at least people were free to move out of the country, but he had to undergo much difficulty to… Continue
