(All Glories to Sril Prabhupada)

हे प्रभु, हे वसुदेव पुत्र श्रीकृष्ण, हे सर्वव्यापी भगवान, मैं आपको सादर नमस्कार करता हूँ। मैं भगवान श्रीकृष्ण का ध्यान करता हूँ, क्योंकि वे परम सत्य हैं और व्यक्त ब्रह्माण्डों की उत्पत्ति, पालन तथा संहार के समस्त कारणों के आदि कारण हैं। वे प्रत्यक्ष तथा अप्रत्यक्ष रूप से सारे जगत से अवगत रहते हैं और वे परम स्वतंत्र हैं, क्योंकि उनसे परे अन्य कोई कारण है ही नहीं।

The Supreme Personality of Godhead and cause of ALL causes is Lord Krsna who expands as Karanodakshayi Visnu (Maha Visnu) into the material creation.

From the four armed Bodily form of Maha Visnu, all the billions material massive universes (Brahmandas) originate from the pores of His skin and His breathing.

In this way Maha Visnu creates all the material universes (Brahmandas) that take up 1/4 of the Spiritual Sky.

The other 3/4s of the Spiritual Sky is the Vaikuntha planets and Krsna's central ab

Who is Srimati Radharani?

Srila Prabhupada - "I offer my respects to Rādhārāṇī, whose bodily complexion is like molten gold and who is the Queen of Vṛndāvana. You are the daughter of King Vṛṣabhānu very dear to Lord Kṛṣṇa.

So if we approach Kṛṣṇa through Rādhārāṇī, through the mercy of Rādhārāṇī, then it becomes very easy.

If Rādhārāṇī recommends that "This devotee is very nice," then Kṛṣṇa immediately accepts, however fool I may be. Because it is recommended by Rādhārāṇī, Kṛṣṇa accepts.

Therefore in Vṛndāvana you'll find a

Actor Ed Asner passed away today. Back when deprogramming was in the news and devotees were negatively portrayed as cult members, he and his popular T.V. show defended a person’s right to become a devotee of Krishna.
This is from the first year of the Lou Grant television series, and some of it was filmed in the New Dwarka Temple in Los Angeles. That scene begins at 14:58.
On his T.V. show he spoke to an enormous audience of millions in a positive manner about chanting Hare Kri

9521873855?profile=RESIZE_400xI have written several articles on vows and feel that any discussion on vows wouldn’t be complete without addressing sexual restraint. Plus, men often ask me how to control sexual desire and I felt that to do justice to this question I would need to write an article.

I am approaching this issue mainly from the male perspective (obviously because I am a man and also because the scriptures approach it more from that perspective). Still, although men and women are wired differently and thus respond

As the spider very easily creates the network of its cobweb and manifests its power of creation without being defeated by others, so also you yourself, by employment of your self-sufficient energy, create without any other’s help.

The best example of self-sufficiency is the sun. The sun does not require to be illuminated by any other body. Rather, it is the sun which helps all other illuminating agents, for in the presence of the sun no other illuminating a

1 सूत गोस्वामी ने कहा: भगवान नारायण ने अपनी मोहमयी शक्ति का यह ऐश्वर्यशाली प्रदर्शन नियोजित किया था। इसका अनुभव करके मार्कण्डेय ऋषि ने भगवान की शरण ग्रहण की।

2 श्री मार्कण्डेय ने कहा: हे भगवान हरि, मैं आपके उन चरणकमलों के तलवों की शरण ग्रहण करता हूँ जो उनकी शरण ग्रहण करनेवालों को अभय दान देते हैं। बड़े-बड़े देवता भी आपकी माया से मोहित रहते हैं जो ज्ञान के रूप में उनके समक्ष प्रकट होती है।
