Faith... (Poem)

Truly, Faith is the life-giving tree of Bliss,

It stems from the root of devotion,

It is nourished by the determination of the devotee,

It flowers by the Grace of the Guru,

It fructifies with the Blessings of the Lord,

And then it reaches out to the hearts of others,

To seed, and take root, once…

Temple means an opportunity

The Four Kumaras, Sanaka-kumaradi, they were first of all

impersonalists, but after smelling the tulasi leaves which were

offered to the lotus feet of Visnu, they become personalists. So this

is an opportunity. If anyone comes, smells the flowers and the tulasi

offered to Krsna, tastes the prasada, and sees the Lord's form, in

this way he develops Krsna consciousness. So this is…

That is the philosophy



That is the philosophy. 

 

The aim is to satisfy Visnu. We should always remember this fact, that we are eternally servant, part and parcel of Krsna, or Visnu. As I have given many…

Modern day cities ...

Hare Krishna Friends,



There are three modes of nature, goodness, passion and ignorance, under whose influence this entire material world functions. Things are created in passion, maintained under the influence of goodness, and destroyed by ignorance. Passion is very pleasing initially, but after some time brings distress and suffering. Goodness is unpleasant initially, but later is actually joyful. And ignorance is trouble from beginning to…

How can one become a devotee?

Bhagavad-gita is understood by devotee. He may be illiterate. It

doesn't matter. As Caitanya Mahaprabhu certified the illiterate

brahmana who was reading Bhagavad-gita in Ranganatha temple.



The brahmana was illiterate. His guru ordered him that "You read

Bhagavad-gita daily, eighteen chapters." So he could not refuse the

order of guru maharaja; so he was taking the book and simply seeing.

So…
