           Today I am writing after a long time. As if I had stopped living for all this while since I stopped wiritng. Really WRITING IS LIVING. I read today-  to write is a verb not a noun. Meaning it is an action word. It can never be stagnant or still. It has to be dynamic has to always be moving. Over the years my heart seemed to have dried I don’t know how I allowed that but it was kind of a degradation of my soul. This trip which I had alone to a beautiful and spiritually charged place ha

The Patient (A Krishna-conscious short story)

‘Excuse me…Dr Sathe, is it?’

Dr Sathe looked up from his desk and saw an attractive woman in her late thirties at the door of his office. Dr Sathe waved her inside and they shook hands.

‘Good evening Dr Sathe,’ The visitor took the seat that was offered to her and continued, ‘I’m Mrs Madhavi Kothare, we spoke on the telephone earlier…regarding my brother, Mr Madan Pradhan. I have got the photographs and the other documents that you wanted…’

Madhavi held out a large, thick envelope to him.

Preaching in villages - a novel idea

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
My name is Samik Rsi Dasa (ACBSP) and I have been an ISKCON devotee since 1972 when I came to the USA to practice Medicine.

         As the famous saying goes " Beauty lies in the eyes of the Beholder". So no doubt our conception of beauty may differ a lot from others. Nonetheless, it is a pleasure sharing with you my idea of beauty. Poets, writers authors all have been glorifying the beauty of this world since time immemorial. But i pity those who think that beauty is just skin deep. The most beautiful things in this world are felt more than they are seen. .Have you ever experienced the feeling of the morning dew o

(One more time about praying life)

Adjata Shatru das (Gaurendu das who has already left his body)


“I am convinced that the biggest problem of ISKCON and  the reason of all the difficulties we are facing now is that in pursuit of external developments (huge temples, millions of distributed book, etc.) we forget about our main responsibility – to learn to love Krsna.”


In 1995 I saw Satsvarupa das Goswami Maharaja’s book – “Entrance into a praying life” for the first time. I

  In three out of the four millenniums (namely Satya-yuga, Tretä-yuga and Dväpara-yuga) people had the honor to be able to understand transcendence through the path of disciplic succession. However, in the present age, people have no interest in the disciplic succession. Instead, they have invented many paths of logic and argument. This individual attempt to understand the supreme transcendence (called the ascending process) is not approved by the Vedas. The Absolute Truth must descend from the

2514839306?profile=original Imagine life in the hustle and bustle of this world without the devotees. Thanks to Srila Prabhupada we have a wonderful society to help us stay fixed in our spiritual lives. Without the mercy of the devotees and the guidance and support of our friends, pursuing spiritual life would certainly be much more of a struggle. This is exactly what we were missing in our Krishna consciousness lives when we attended a retreat for the first time in 2007: loving relationships with other young devotees. Af

Amogha's memories of Prabhupada


His Divine Grace arrives, Melbourne 1974


Dear Devotees,

I recorded memories of times I was with Srila Prabhupada, including audio clips of him speaking on various topics during morning walks when I was present. I love to hear him blast the scientists so effectively, and set our minds right about everything. Apologies if the kirtan lead seems a bit sentimental. I kept this recording for a long time and recently decided to release it.

Govardhana’s Appearance



The narration of Govardhana’s Avirbhava, or appearance, in this world and the receiving of the name of "Giriraja" is described in the second chapter of the Vrndavana-khanda of the Garga-Samhita, by Sri Gargacaraya. In a counsel of wise and elderly gopas of Vraja that included Nanda Maharaja and his brother Sananda amongst the discussion, the previously mentioned topics were debated upon. Pandu and Bhisma raised the questions for discussion, and the narration was then told by Sananda to Nanda Ma

Took a bath despite to the type of whether,

Waking up when the Sun was not there.

Oh, yes! Before swept cleanly the floor,

Meditating that God will love me for.

Wearied my sari and put tilak,

Also kajal, decoration to my eyes and hair.

Opened Altar to meet my Lord there,

Or correctly, to be seen by Him here.

Paid obeisance with lots of prayers,

Which I copied from Acharias previous.

"Oh Lord! You are only shelter…" and so on,

"Please, don't neglect Your child alone!"

The untimely end to Dominique Strauss – Kahn’s ( hereinafter referred to as DSK ) brilliant career at IMF, precipitated by a momentary “indiscretion”, while trying to have forced sex with the hotel’s housekeeping staff, a Guinean lady, and having been indicted by a NY court on all of seven counts, and now on house arrest and awaiting trial, is a classic example of degeneration of our collective values in modern times.
