Devotees are strange people....

Devotees are strange people.
When in DISTRESS... they smile and call it effects of past Karma.
When HAPPY...they weep tears of gratitude, filled with Krsna-Prem.
Devotees are strange people.

Introduction

Many of you will be very much shocked to hear that the incense you are using is basically made of Coal Powder, Groundnut Cells, washing soda ash, Foam paste, Grease, Rubber…

Deepen Your Devotional Roots With Mayapur Institute

<!doctype html>



Let us look at the tree. As the tree grows, it develops its crown: more branches develop, more leaves, and even some birds arrive and nest in the branches. At this point (or even earlier), the roots of the tree should grow deeper and deeper to provide more stability for the growing tree.



If that does not happen, there is danger. Due to the weight of the tree and the absence of deep anchoring into the ground, there is the danger of it falling down. A… Continue

Romapada Swami answers "Is it possible to overcome depression and fear?"

Question. 1. How to overcome depression? Right from my student days I have developed inferiority complex and at times I find it really difficult to overcome. My parents and brother have been extremely supportive to me in this regard. But still it is not totally gone. After getting introduced to Krishna Consciousness through my brother, things improved a lot but when my Sadhana started going down and is not consistent, this also started to lead me to hopeless mind state. Are there some…
