Are there 33 crore gods or only “ONE GOD”

Some scholars masquerading as spiritualists opine that in Hinduism there are 33 crore gods and one can chose anyone and worship as per their liking. It’s just like a quack telling a diseased person to choose any medicine as per his taste and it will cure his disease. In the present age many such spiritual quacks swarm the world misguiding the people.

The various gods which are mentioned in the Vedic literatures are in fact demigods who have been given certain responsibilities by the…

Thought Of The Day

Prabhupada: So we should know... Happiness is described in the Bhagavad-gita: sukham atyantikam yat tad atindriyam grahyam [Bg. 6.21]. What is happiness, that is beyond the senses. The sense happiness is there by the pig and the man. But his standard of sense happiness is different from the man's. Standard may be different, but the happiness derived from the subject matter is the same. There is no difference.

Who are the book distributors?

By His Holiness Devamrita Swami

Is book distribution an elitist activity, or a natural…

Solving life’s perplexities

In Bhagavad Gita 2.7, Arjuna says, “karpanya – dosopahata – svabhavah”, “Now I am confused about my duty and have lost all composure because of miserly weakness.” Here the word “karpanya” has been used which means “miserliness”. A miser person is one who neither enjoys and do not even allow others to enjoy. Srila Prabhupada explains that a miser person do not take trouble to solve the problems of life. He remains engrossed in the material life and also keeps his family members entangled in the… Continue

Thought Of The Day

Prabhupada: These are all material necessities. So if you come to the spiritual platform, the test is that you have no material necessities. So long you are diseased, you require medicine, but when you are not diseased there is no need of medicine. It is the healthy state. So so long we are materially diseased, we require all these material necessities. So when you are on the spiritual platform there is no material (indistinct). Nidrahara-viharakadi-vijitau **, then you conquer over even our…
