Rasa-lila: not for public discussion

Posted: 21 Mar 2012 09:26 PM PDT These rascals, they do not know what is Krsna. They think Krsna is ordinary man. “Why He is engaging Arjuna in the fighting? Why He is dancing withothers’ daughter and girls? These are immoral things.” Therefore this rasa dance should not be discussed among the fools and rascals. They’ll misunderstand. Although the professional reciters, they take part, wheneverthey speak of Bhagavata, they immediately jump over the rasa dance. That is not to be done.…

Sri Chaitanya Upanishad

1. Thereafter, Pippalada, with sacrificial fuel in hand, approached Lord Brahma and said, “O My Lord, in this world, please tell me what is the real auspiciousness?”



2. Lord Brahma said, “Always be very pleased with only austerity, celibacy and control of the mind.”



3. He, Pippalada, becoming pure in mind, again approached his father and said: “O my Lord Brahma, in the age of Kali Yuga, people are covered due to sin. How can they obtain liberation?”



4. Please… Continue

Shyama Upanishad

Om Krim. In the thousand petalled lotus one may achieve the true form of the absolute, most beautiful, using three Krims, two Hums, two Hrims, Dakshine Kalike, then the previous seven syllables, ending with svaha. This is the best of all mantras.



One who recites this is lord of gods, the lord of the universe, the lord of women, every guru, all name, learned in all the vedas, immersed in all the sacred waters, Sadashiva himself.



Triangle, triangle, triangle, triangle,… Continue

Wise Words from Mahanidhi Swami

"Chanting a fixed number of rounds of the Hare Krsna Maha mantra
Japa is the most urgent necessity and important engagement of a devotee each and every day. It should be completed before anything else. There are many Vaisnavas in Vrndavana who will not even drink a drop of water until they finish 64 rounds."

Pinda Upanishad

Pinda Upanishad



Om! O Devas! May we hear only the good with our ears; O the ones to be worshipped! May we see only the good with our eyes; may we have strong limbs and bodies, which will enable us to pray and worship the Devas. May we live unto such time the Devas feel we should live.

The Proper Use Of Power

‘To try to transform the world and its institutions, which are engaged in a struggle for power resulting in the misuse of power; to try to create a culture of responsibility where people are literally trying to facilitate others; and to reach out and care is the real point of our preaching. Real leaders are not those who want to lead because they feel they have to dominate, coerce and impose. Real leaders are those who are not even interested in leading, but at the same time they are not… Continue

Who is Maya?





“Maya is also a devotee of Krishna whose duty is to keep the criminals in jail. She never releases anyone unless they become a pure devotee of Krishna. But when someone becomes pure, she gladly accepts defeat, because her whole purpose is to help people surrender to Krishna. This is her success.



She expertly keeps the living entity in illusion until he understands that he is the eternal servant of Krishna, thus preventing the… Continue

H H Suhotra Swami about H H Sridhar Maharaja's Nrsimha Salagram

Sunday afternoon I visited HH Sridhara Swami Maharaja at his “Nrsimha Kutir.” On the ISKCON Juhu land, besides the big temple and guest house, there is an apartment complex that has stood here since before ISKCON bought the property. Gradually all the nondevotee residents of those apartments moved out; now the building is occupied by ISKCONians only. So HH Sridhara Maharaja stays in one apartment where he worships his three amazing Nrsimha shilas and one Sudarshana shila.

I wish I could… Continue
