Srila Prabhupada Nectar ~ We can employ people to clean the temple...

One day in Vrindavan, Srila Prabhupada allowed a morning darsana in his room, but some of the important devotees were absent. When he asked where they were, he was told that some of the devotees were cleaning the temple.

Prabhupada was surprised. "Cleaning the temple? We can employ people to clean the temple, but one thing you cannot employ people to do is to preach. So they should hear from me when I am speaking, or how will they preach?"

Weapons of Love

"In the previous ages, the Lord was carrying weapons. When the devas approached Caitanya Mahaprabhu when He was still in the womb of His mother, they were glorifying Him that, in every incarnation You come, and You deliver the demons and You deliver Your devotees.

The demons are delivered by getting killed by the Lord and then they are given moksha. They merge into the light of the…

Shiva-the Param vaishnava

Lord Shiva is a great devotee of Supreme Lord Krishna and he wanted to join the rasa dance, but he was stopped, because he had a male body. He needed a gopi body for this. He became very sad and started to meditate on the bank of Brahma-kunda, crying. He wanted to become a gopi. He stopped eating, sleeping, was only crying and crying.

The Rat who got liberation

The Rat who got liberation

Once, a rat was running on the altar of a Vishnu Deity, just at a time when one of the ghee lamps was about to go out. The rat thought that the flame might be some foodstuff, so he stuck his whiskers in it. The dying flame caught on to the rat's whiskers, and the fire flared up, catching on to the unused portion of the wick. In this way, by the rat's foolish sacrifice, the flame on…

About Lazy Men

Prabhupada was annoyed when devotees in Vrindavan repeatedly walked in and out of his room and left the door open behind them, letting in flies.

"Why are you leaving the door open?" he yelled. It is a contagious disease." And then he told a story.

An employer advertised for an opening in his firm and received many applications. Based on these, he selected two men and asked them to come for an interview. The employer then observed each man carefully during the interview. When…

Spend Half Day in a Graveyard


A physician gave some rather whimsical advice to a patient, an aggressive,
go-getter type of businessman. Excitedly the businessman told the doctor
what an enormous amount of work he had to do and that he had to get it done
right away or else things will fall apart.


“I take my brief case home every night and it’s packed with work,” he said
with nervous…

Remembering Srila Prabhupada - My Memories of Srila Prabhupada

My Memories of Srila Prabhupada



In the Srimad Bhagavatam lecture on March 18, 1976, two days after Gaura Purnima, Srila Prabhupada said, "Srimad Bhagavatam should be your life and soul to remain constantly in Krsna consciousness." This instruction became an important focus in my life. I considered what it meant, "Srimad Bhagavatam should be your life and soul." Often when lecturing or otherwise preaching to devotees, I still quote this instruction and…
