 The number of calls to our temple/ashram are increasing.  This is a fairly typical dialogue:
 “Are you guys open?”
“No!”
“Do you know when?”
“It’s hard to say.  Most likely we’ll open when most other places do.”
“That’s too bad. I miss (the temple or Govinda’s).”
“There’s not much we can do,” we have to say.
 
Basically a conversation like the above makes me happy that people are missing Krishna and that there is a spiritual need.  It shows that we are wired to need other people and that lonel

A Mother’s Love by Giriraj Swami

“There are very exalted spiritual understandings in Krishna consciousness. They are not fictional, imaginary, or concocted. They are facts, and every devotee can have the privilege to understand and indeed take part in Krishna’s pastimes if he is actually advanced. We should not think that the privilege given to Mother Yasoda is not available to us. Everyone can have a similar privilege. If one loves Krishna as one’s child, then one will have such a privilege, because the mother has the most lo

From Back to Godhead

Fulfilling our duty as parents requires taking care of our children’s spiritual needs.

As the mother of ten children, I am often asked, “How do you fulfill your family responsibilities and still make progress in spiritual life? When do you find the time to serve God?”

“It’s a matter of vision,” I reply. “I realize that I can serve God by caring for my children and husband with love and respect.”

Being a mother and wife is my duty, and I don’t distinguish it from my service

In 1995 I went to India and that year was the 25th anniversary of HH Jayapataka Swami taking sannyasa, so his mother actually came to Mayapur at festival time.

It was nice because we figured that Maharaja would be pleased if she was happy and cared for so we did our best.

By Kesava Bharati Swami

ARE YOU READY to hear about a miracle? Don’t worry, I won’t bore you with yet another story about some pseudo-miracle-worker. This story is about a seventy-nine-year-old woman completely set in her ways who, at the most difficult time of death, had a change of heart that brought her from the brink of terror to tears of joy.
