Exploiting Humility by Kesava Krsna Dasa

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…

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…

From Back to Godhead

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 by Radheshyam Dasa

tumblr_oyxvyuJeFs1sbj0vuo1_500.jpg

“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…

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…

If not now, When? by Karnamrita Das

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.…
