Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! Please accept my humble obeisances! All glories to Sri Guru Parampara and all devotees everywhere!
Due to recent events, I put together this ritual to be used for psychic protection, to banish negative entities and energies, and can also simply be used to create a sacred space around you. It uses the Nityananda, Gauranga, and Hare Krishna mantras, as well as parts of the Nrisingha Kavacha. This ritual can be done anywhere at any time that you…Continue

Haribol! Please accept my humble obeisances! All glories to Sri Guru Parampara and all the devotees!
I hope everyone has a fantastic Janmastami! I'm at New Vrindaban, West Virginia, where I've been since last Friday. It has been the most ecstatic time of my life! This is exactly what I needed spiritually! The devotees here have been absolutely wonderful, and there's been so many blissfully ecstatic kirtans this week! I can't wait for Mangala Arati to start, and today's festivities are…Continue
I just got "The Bhakti Yoga Handbook" by Stephen Knapp for my Kindle. I've only read the introduction so far, and judging from that, I think this is going to be the perfect book to optimize my sadhana.
I'm going to use this blog to share the things I learn as I study this book and actually stick myself to a schedule. Haribol!
If If you want to get this book and study it with me, here's the link:
Hare Krishna everyone! Please accept my humble obeisances! All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
Since I've started pouring my heart out here, I thought that I should write a little about the devotee who taught me and inspired me the most back in the 1990's.
His name is Apurva prabhu, and he is a disciple of Srila Prabhupada who was the Temple President in Denver, Colorado when I lived there.
His kindness to me and all the things I learned from him have always stuck with me…Continue
The main service I would like to do for Krishna is to help people by writing books that use all the knowledge of religion, philosophy, science, and psychology that I've learned to explain the intricacies of Krishna Consciousness to people of other religious faiths so that they can see how it corresponds to their own religion. I want to point out to them also all the other religions' correspondences with each other, to benefit everyone who has to deal with people in their daily lives who…Continue
Next week is Kamika Ekadasi. This Ekadasi has special benedictions which you can read about elsewhere on this website. But the ones I am most concerned with are as follows:
"This Ekadasi is the purest of all days and the most powerful for removing sins of the native.
Oh Narad ji, Lord Shri Hari Himself once said about this Ekadasi, "One who fasts on Kamika Ekadasi attains much more merit than one who studies all the spiritual literatures.
'Anyone who fasts on this…Continue
I need devotees help in how to become a better preacher to my wife. I am married to a non-devotee, but she is exceptionally supportive of me because I have woken her up to the spiritual life. She is a Psychologist by profession, and has an amazing grasp of the human mind. She is also trained in Reiki, and is naturally very psychically sensitive (she sees auras and can feel people's energies). Nonetheless, I have to tread carefully when it comes to talking about God because of her ingrained…Continue
I just spoke to Jaya Krishna das, the temple president of New Vrindaban. I'm going to go visit and stay in the ashram for the week of Janmastami. I'm really excited because it's been many years since I spent some time staying at a temple. I can't wait to go and serve Krishna and His devotees!
Lord Gauranga-Krishna is so merciful to me! I am so unworthy of His Grace but He's so wonderful to me that it inspires me to chant His glories even more. Jaya Sri Krishna-Caitanya!
