The Personification of Success- A short story

Rohit was convinced he was the very personification of success. But was he really so...

It was one of those unexpectedly cold Mumbai winter mornings. The temperature had dipped to its lowest in that season and few people were about on the streets. It was the first of January, New Years Day. Most people were either fast asleep in bed or had just crawled into bed after their New Year parties.A lone and handsome man in his thirties, resolutely jogged his way on the Marine Drive promenade.

Our Real Last Name

When I recently moved to Mumbai, being born and brought up in South India I faced a common question whenever I spoke with new people. After the common question what is your name? , many of them asked me what your Last Name or family name is? I was really surprised why it is so important to mention our Last name or what is the significance of the last name(since in south India its not considered much). From my childhood I had used only Initial which is the first letter in our father’s name. Then

Her glorious complexion fair, Her garments red, and Her new youthfulness effulgent, Sri Radha, delighting Her friends, and graceful like a crescent moon in its second night, shone with great splendor.Sri Radha's limbs glistened like lightning. Sri Radha's hair was like a dark monsoon cloud with lightning. Sri Radha's neck and other limbs are like the winding tendrils of a golden sura-lata vine. Sri Radha's face graced with many black and curly locks of hair is like a lotus encircled by black bee

Myself, the eternal muser...

I am that Eternal Muser, that unfortunate Jiva,Who suffers in that unenviable position, perceiving his deplorable position as a conditioned soul;Who has been shown by those Exalted Devotees, the Path to be free of shackles but,Who lacks the courage and integrity to walk that Path;Who has eaten of that holy Prasadam, but failed to imbibe its Goodness;Who has partaken of that Bliss of Sankirtan, but has failed to assimilate its Glory;Who has heard of that Dark Complexioned One, and is called by Hi

O Krishna...Deliver me!

Those dark clouds return, just as before,That drench me in gloom, for it’s only fair,That the dues of my Karma, I must eternally pay,But they are harsh and severe…so hard to bear!These waves of pain, they overwhelm me,Drowning me in sorrow, no recourse I see.In my anguish, I scream for help,But I find only loneliness, mocking at me!Condemned by my Past, forsaken by my Future,The sordid Present that sentences me.My limitless sins, they’ve found me out,I resign to fate, there’s no hope for me.I lo

It was the second or third international Mayapur festival. We had just finished the four storeyed building which is today known as the Lotus building. (This Lotus building was the temporary mandir at that time). Srila Prabhupada had invited several devotees from all over the world for the inauguration of this mandir. On this occassion we had a big feast. After the feast Prabhupada took the prasadam and then a little rest. But his rest was disturbed by the howling of the dogs and he got up. Prabh

The Story of Bali Maharaja and Lord Vaman Dev

Maharaja Pariksit inquired Suka: The Supreme God is the proprietor of everything. Why did He beg three paces of land from Bali Maharaja like a poor man, and when He got the gift for which He had begged, why did He nonetheless arrest Bali Maharaja? I am very much anxious to know the mystery of these contradictions.

Sri Suka Said: Bali Maharaja, The leader of the De

The Teacher, PainWhen we carefully study what drives people to spiritual life, we find asurprising correlation between a rise in spiritual earnestness and pain andmisery. Pain pushes us to seek relief beyond the body and mind. Pain anddisappointment knock on the closed doors of a superficial life and call usto open ourselves to the Lord in full surrender.While doing so, pain frequently slices through the illusory veil of mindlesssense pleasure. We arrive at the cardinal question: Where is my ult

'Lord Krishna existed. School texts are wrong'

Did Krishna exist?Most certainly, says Dr Manish Pandit, a nuclear medicine physician who teaches in the United Kingdom, proffering astronomical, archaeological, linguistic and oral evidences to make his case."I used to think of Krishna is a part of Hindu myth and mythology. Imagine my surprise when I came across Dr Narhari Achar (a professor of physics at the University of Memphis, Tennessee, in the US) and his research in 2004 and 2005. H

What is (and isn't) cow protection

Cow protection means just like Bhagavan, the Supreme Personality of Godhead,He is tending the cows. He is going, taking the cows personally from Hisroyal palace going to the forest whole day, working there. Is it not,cowherds boy? And taken some little fruit, mother, whatever mother hasgiven. They are playing that. So this is cow protection, not that "Somebodywill give money and we shall keep some third class cows and feed there andbecome cow protector." We must tend the cows very nicely so that

Once, a drunk person walking on a roof came dangerously close to the edge. When a wise person warned him, “Stop. Don’t move forward,” he angrily retorted, “Who are you to stop me? I am free to go wherever I want.” Yes, free he was, as he soon found – free to suffer and free to lose his freedom to walk forever.
Restriction is not a depriver of freedom, but a provider of freedom. When a doctor restricts the diet of a patient, that restriction facilitates the patient’s quick freedom from disease
