What is (and isn't) cow protection

Cow protection means just like Bhagavan, the Supreme Personality of Godhead,

He is tending the cows. He is going, taking the cows personally from His

royal palace going to the forest whole day, working there. Is it not,

cowherds boy? And taken some little fruit, mother, whatever mother has

given. They are playing that. So this is cow protection, not that "Somebody

will give money and we shall keep some third class cows and feed there and

become cow protector." We… Continue

Indeed, most people today are “prisoners of success.” How? Generally, a prisoner is one whose…

Quotes from Srila Bhakti Tirtha Swami - November 8, 1998

1.Treat each person with the bhakti and care as if the success or failure of your own spiritual life depends on this. Do not take into concern how they treat you.The manner in which you treat people is the same way you treat Guru and Krishna.

2.Anytime that there is a problem in a relationship, you should first see it as your own fault. Even if others are to blame, you will only add to the problem by considering them to be at fault.

3.You should treat every person with… Continue

Book distribution in Detroit

I was asked to give the lecture on Janmastami at the Detroit temple, (for

those of you in other countries, Detroit is a city in the state of Michigan

Prabhupada had said entered my train of thought, "Devotees are not satisfied

in just hearing the glories of Krsna they also want to distribute His

glories." Well, that sparked an interactive discussion on book distribution.

I asked, "How many of you… Continue

Lessons of Iso-Upanishad-1

I do not intend to turn my blogs into a scriptural forum, but as I focus on environment and health, the scriptures just cut right across. So, what to do? I shall take in few leads from the iso-upanisad to guide my discuss in the coming weeks.

Yesterday was janmasthami and I fasted the whole day, in spite of 9 hour day work. My colleagues persuaded me to drink water which I objected to. This is not a strain on my body; it’s a fulfillment of my spirit. Tomorrow will come and I shall… Continue
