Those dear as life one can never forget

Memories Of HH Tamal Krishna MaharajaSarajevo, March 19, 2002Dear Tamal Krishna Maharaja, my dear brother, friend and helper.Feeling your separation we remember Lord Krishna’s words:When somehow made mindful of those one loves, one is given back one’s life. Forgetting those more dear than one’s own breath is more painful than dying. Those dear as life one can never forget, but when reminded of them in a special way one feels happy, like one who has lived a life of good fortune. (Brhad-bhagavatam

MAYA is strong but KC is more strong

A young hippy asked Srila Prabhupada, "If our purpose is to go back toGodhead, why is Maya so strong?" Without the slightest hesitation SrilaPrabhupada profoundly and poetically answered, "Because your purpose is notstrong."In other words Maya, the Lord's illusory energy, only has power over us tothe extent that we are not determined to go back to home, back to Godhead.If we are determined to become fully Krishna conscious and not take birthhere again in this material world, the material energy

More You Enjoy, More You Want to Enjoy

Srila Prabhupada says example of a person who eats a lot at home, and goes to restaurant and drinks tea, biscuits, even after being full. It is not that senses are demanding; they are satisfied but the mind is demanding. Senses are just following the commands of uncontrolled mind. What is wrong in this uncontrolled enjoyment? Even Charavaka says the same thing, "Just eat, drink and be merry in life. Live life king size, allowing senses in the direction they want..." that is his philosophy. But t

Chant Unpretentiously, Honestly and Humbly

BhaktiVinod Thakur condemns five things in Sarnagati prayers: He says “Hell with my high birth! Hell with my so called education! Hell with the fame of my family which I am very often proud of!” Because people are generally proud of their high birth and fame of their family and high erudite learning. This way he condemns different aspects of his life. He says "What is the use of all these things because I am not engaged in the devotional service of the Lord”.Just like in the song which Narottam

KRISHNA-The Owner of Senses

Every individual in this world wants to get unlimited enjoyment and happiness and zero suffering, but people get exactly the opposite, i.e. unlimited suffering and no enjoyment, as said by Avadhuta Brahman in Srimad Bhagavatam. So in first place we have to know that the senses do not belong to us, they belong to Krishna.Srila Prabhupada was once sitting on a loft, he said, "This loft belongs to the owner of the house from whom ISKCON has hired. The moment I think that this is my loft and that I
