We should be convinced of...

Hare Krsna..

This is what i have realized. Thanks to devotees.....But still trying to get convinced about those statements.



I thought of sharing it. It may seem too basic....Please correct it if i am wrong.



During practice of Krsna consciousness, one should get convinced about following thoughts:

1) First, that all the material endeavors for happiness leads to dissatisfaction of heart. I am not satisfied by any bodily pleasure and comforts.

2) I am not body.… Continue

Mantra Meditation On Chanting Hare Krishna

The transcendental vibration established by the chanting of HARE KRISHNA HARE KRISHNA KRISHNA KRISHNA, HARE HARE, HARE RAMA, HARE RAMA, RAMA RAMA, HARE HARE is the sublime method for reviving our transcendental consciousness. As living spiritual souls, we are all originally Krishna Conscious entities, but due to our association with matter—since time immemorial—our consciousness is now adulterated by the material atmosphere. The material atmosphere, in which we are now living, is called Maya,… Continue

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… Continue

Hamsa Upanishad

Om ! That (Brahman) is infinite, and this (universe) is infinite.

The infinite proceeds from the infinite.

(Then) taking the infinitude of the infinite (universe),

It remains as the infinite (Brahman) alone.

Om ! Let there be Peace in me !

Let there be Peace in my environment !

Let there be Peace in the forces that act on me !

Reality Check!

“When there is a big disaster, people start to have reality checks. What did we do wrong? People start to become introspective when there are disasters and problems. That’s an opportunity for the people who are well grounded in their spiritual life, in their Krishna consciousness to be able to promote KC.



We need a more spiritual world. It’s too much of a one sided world, too much materialism. It needs to be balanced. So, Srila Prabhupada… Continue

Power of Preaching!

By preaching we can burn up the effects of our offenses. By helping others to be Krishna Conscious, we attract the mercy of Krishna in a very quick manner and we can advance quickly.



For those who are liberated, there are also special rasa when they go out and preach and that is what the Lord wants.…

The Supreme Need of the Hour: Love

Is there a man whose heart will shed tears of blood at the misery of even the meanest of God’s creation? It is in his heart--be sure--that the Lord dwells.



O Man! Years have come and gone! You are yet the same old brute, the same abode of the same old cruel heart which grabs and does not give. Renounce, serve, love! Become good this very minute!



What have you learnt from the terrible tragedy which shook the country from end to end? Would you still lean back in your… Continue

Be Smart!

Be Smart! Look before You Leap!

In life always we set a goal and choose to walk on a path that will help us achieve the goal. Anyone wants to become a Doctor does not join a Computer Course thinking that he will become a doctor at the end of the course. So, destination depends on the path we choose to travel.

Every one wants to become happy in life. It’s a unanimous desire of all living entities not just human beings. But did we ever check… Continue

The Ultimate Success

There are a fortunate few into whose lives God has brought an awareness of a goal higher than merely being born, making a living and being called successful. Often we say, "He has succeeded in life; he has distinguished himself in his career, earned a lot of money, and attained a high social position." Yet, is being a successful person merely accumulating some things, being called a success, and then leading a comfortable life? In terms of ultimate values it would be a very small life. In an… Continue

Force of Samskaras

Some time ago, there lived in Karur, a big mercantile town, in Trichinopoly District, a fully developed Raja Yogi, by name Sadasiva Brahman. He was as famous as Trilinga Swami of Benares. He used to sit in Samadhi for six months. He was a great Titikshu and a Vairagi. He used to have a Kowpeen only and sleep on bare ground. Once, there was a huge flood on the Cauveri River, and Sadasiva Brahman, who was in Samadhi, was carried away by the floods and deposited in some other place. One day, he… Continue

The Necessity for a Guru

Is a guru indispensable in the field of spirituality? It may be that a guru is not easily found, but I can assure you that he is no less indispensable--whatever the impediments may be. What can you learn if there is no one to teach you? What can you receive unless there is someone to give? There is a saying in India that even if you want to learn to make a pot from a lump of clay, you have to go and apprentice yourself to someone who knows the skills. If you want to prepare a simple dish, you… Continue

Garbha Upanishad

Om ! May He protect us both together; may He nourish us both together;

May we work conjointly with great energy,

May our study be vigorous and effective;

May we not mutually dispute (or may we not hate any).

Let there be Peace in my environment !

Let there be Peace in the forces that act on me !



The body is fivefold in nature (the five elements), existing in the five, depending on the six (tastes of food), connected with… Continue
