OH Gauranga!!!

OH Gauranga!!!!

Oh Gauranga! When will that day come,

When my heart will be freed,

From the anarthas acquired,

Since millions of lifetimes.





Oh Gauranga! When will that day come,

When the heart free from malice

And material contaminations,

Develops pure taste for the Holy Name…



Oh Gauranga! When will that day come,

When the things of this world,

Will cease to attract me,

Which pull me away from your lotus…

More face-kicking‏

Srila Prabhupad said:

... do not become so foolish and rascal, that any rascal comes and poses himself as God, incarnation of God... You kick on their face.

Your Lipstick: Made With Cow Brains

Here's the bad news: Cow brains may be an ingredient in your lipstick.

The good news? The FDA is banning it.



The Food and Drug Administration has told cosmetics makers they can no longer use brain and spinal cord tissue from older cattle in lipstick, hair sprays, and other products, reports The Associated Press. The fact that they were used at all will likely surprise millions of women who use these products daily. And that's not the only surprise: The new FDA regulations still… Continue

The advent of Lord Kalki

There have been so many impersonators from India lately, all pretending to be Kalki Avatar, some from south, some from north, all trying to gather disciples around them, and make money.

"Thereafter, at the conjunction of two yugas [Kali-yuga and Satya-yuga], the Lord of the creation will take His birth as the Kalki incarnation… Continue

Life

LIFE



Life goes by slowly and gradually

By the current of the river

Everything is swept away

Similarly our life goes ahead

Taking everything in its sway.





Life, life, life celebrate life

Through stress and strife.

Look at the glass half full

Rather than half empty and pitiful.



Seeing things in… Continue

The Most Congenial Form of Intimacy

Krsna is the central pivot of living beings, and He is the all-attractive

living entity or eternal form amongst all other living beings or eternal

forms. Each and every living being has his eternal form in the spiritual

existence, and Krsna is the eternal attraction for all of them. Krsna is the

complete whole, and everything else is His part and parcel. The relation is

one of the servant and the served. It is transcendental and is completely

distinct from our… Continue

By Maneka Gandhi for The Bihar Times [1] on 18 Jul 2009

off and a few bureaucrats and policemen are richer.



Ghee (from Sanskrit gh?ta meaning “sprinkled”) is… Continue

Pariksit Maharaja, as soon as he heard that Kali, these four principles of

Kali has already entered, he immediately took his bows and arrows and…

be very careful. That was king’s duty. “Anyone who has got illicit sex, kill

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
