A lot of people make the mistake of actually thinking that, their website is just a digital footprint that will connect them to more customers. They do not take the time to think about the time we are living in. You need to understand that, nowadays everything that is online is basically what represent you.

Yo mameva prapannascha mathpriyam na maheshwara
na kadpai sachapnothi mamevam the mayoditham
Sri Krishna says "If one surrenders to me without having surrendered to Radhaji, one cannot attain my darshan( Darshan means spiritual experience of seeing, feeling or hearing specific aspects of a deity)".
Sakrudavam prapanno va mathpriyamekikam…
Sometimes our fixation on who’s “junior” and who is “senior” within our ranks, can inhibit proper devotee relationships. And introducing corporate ideas for managing our devotees can hinder, rather than promote healthy interactions between ourselves.
The basis of our learning, spiritual progress, and successful vaisnava relationships is humility. Most, if not all of our junior devotees…
We all have certain abilities that enable us to make a contribution and gain satisfaction.
When we use our abilities properly, we get a sense of self-worth and specialness. But sometimes those talents can also make us proud because we may feel superior to those who do not have such talents. To avoid such pride, we need to see our abilities appropriately. Gita wisdom explains that our talents are not our…
*Interesting quotes by HH Radhanath Swami during a recent class:*
1. If we judge devotees, it is our spiritual destruction. Do not judge them. You don’t know who they may be.
2. Mercy means to get what we do not deserve.
3. Great souls are merciful. Srila Prabhupada was pleased with the little things that…
My obeisances. Jaya Prabhupada. All glories to his book distributors.
In 1967, I paid Prabhupada $16 for a set of three books that comprised the first canto of Srimad Bhagavatam. That was the amount he charged, and it was more than a day’s work for an hourly employee.
In 1971-72, I was privileged to witness an explosion in book distribution. A number…

Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, Sukadeva Gosvami, Rupa Gosvami, Raghunatha Dasa Gosvami, Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura, the greatest of all…
From Back to Godhead

“Probability is the most important concept in modern science, especially as nobody has the slightest idea what it means. —Bertrand Russell
Throughout human history, philosophers and seekers of knowledge have sought to discover a single fundamental cause underlying all the phenomena of the…
By Karnamrita Das
A Christian asked me, incredulously, “Why would anyone take to Krishna consciousness?” He was satisfied with his religion and felt that not only could it—and should it—meet anyone’s needs, but if it failed to do so and one took up another religion, then that was the fast track to hell. Of course, it is not only Christians who curiously ask this…
“Humility of great souls is the purity within…” This statement reveals the humility of Srila Prabhupada. Although he is the Founder Acarya of a worldwide Organization, he never considers himself to be the best of the Vaishnavas; rather he considers himself unqualified and insignificant. This is one of the shining characteristics of great souls.
Great souls see smallness in themselves and greatness in others. Small…

HH Bhakti Rasamrita Swami is known and respected for his exceptionally well structured and academic presentations on the Vedas. This special seminar ‘Srila Prabhupada’s Aphorisms of Logic’ was no exception to the high standard that he always delivers.…
It was great to go over to Lombok, which is the next island over from Bali, to visit the devotees. There are two centres there, one being a nice facility in the city of Mataram and the other our temple about 30 minutes drive away.
I was able to attend two programs, one on Saturday night in the city and the other at Sunday midday at our temple. The devotees here are very enthusiastic…
There is no perfect time or place,
so if we wait, we will never accomplish,
or sing the song which vibrates our heart
meant to nourish every cell in our body.
To breathe out, one only has to breathe in,
but we can’t hold our breath forever;
so begin today while you are still breathing
because there are no tomorrows or could-bes.…
While I was chanting japa this morning, my mind was flooded with a verse from Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura’s song Gurudeva!:
