From Back to Godhead

Every December, the book marathon promises to be an exciting event. While travelling from door to door, village to village, through remote parts of India, we invariably meet someone who has been miraculously touched by Krishna’s mercy. One such person was Chandu, whom we met in Srirampur, Maharashtra. His tall posture and heavy built contrasted with his soft, humble demeanor. Curious to know his background, I requested him to narrate his story of choosing the path of Krishn

अध्याह चौदह - पुरुरवा का उर्वशी पर मोहित होना 

1 श्रील शुकदेव गोस्वामी ने महाराज परीक्षित से कहा: हे राजन अभी तक आपने सूर्यवंश का विवरण सुना है। अब सोमवंश का अत्यन्त कीर्तिपद एवं पावन वर्णन सुनिए। इसमें ऐल (पुरुरवा) जैसे राजाओं का उल्लेख है जिनके विषय में सुनना कीर्तिप्रद होता है।

2 भगवान विष्णु (गर्भोदकशायी विष्णु) सहस्रशीर्ष पुरुष भी कहलाते हैं। उनकी नाभि रूपी सरोवर से एक कमल निकला जिससे ब्रह्माजी उत्पन्न हुए। ब्रह्मा का पुत्र अत्री अपने पिता के ही समान योग्य था।

3 अत्री के हर्षाश्रुओं से सोम

Shri Ram by Bhaktimarga Swami

8789880887?profile=RESIZE_400x
On the 21st of this month we will celebrate the birthday of Ram. This is my latest poetical rendering. It is in his honour.
 

Ram possesses all the qualities of a superhero

Royal traits of ultimate prince, monarch or pharaoh

Reverent to all, eager to help and listen

With a service attitude acting on what’s given

His build is admirable, countenance grave

A task he’ll tackle meant only for the brave

He never moves suddenly at a reckless whim

No wonder his father, the emperor, adores him

Ram is a h

1.) First let us analyze what our relationship is with Vrndavana and then see how we can develop it. Lord Caitanya explained that these are the five most important aspects in devotional service, which if even a little bit performed, can quickly bring one to the stage of love of God.

sadhu-sanga, nama-kirtana, bhagavata-sravana, mathura-vasa, sri-murtira sraddhaya sevana

One should associate with devotees, chant the holy name of the Lord, hear Srimad-Bhagavatam, reside at Mathura and worship the

Atheistic scientists and intellectual cynics rely totally upon their own brains for knowledge. Such brainpower has brought a little comfort for humankind, but at the expense of ruining our earth, atmosphere, and oceans. Human brains alone have caused more damage than good. In defence of this damaging progress, attempts are made to belittle religion.

Atheism Gets Romantic With Mammal Morality

It appears that a number of atheistic scientists have caught wind of the accusation of ‘No-purpose’ leve

अध्याय तेरह --- महाराज निमि की वंशावली

1 श्रील शुकदेव गोस्वामी ने कहा : यज्ञों का शुभारम्भ कराने के बाद इक्ष्वाकु पुत्र महाराज निमि ने वसिष्ठ से प्रधान पुरोहित का पद ग्रहण करने के लिए अनुरोध किया। उस समय वसिष्ठ ने उत्तर दिया, “हे महाराज निमि, मैंने इन्द्र द्वारा प्रारम्भ किये गये एक यज्ञ में इसी पद को पहले से स्वीकार कर रखा है।"

2 “मैं इन्द्र का यज्ञ पूरा कराकर यहाँ वापस आ जाऊँगा। कृपया तब तक मेरी प्रतीक्षा करें।" महाराज निमि चुप हो गये और वसिष्ठ इन्द्र का यज्ञ सम्पन्न करने में लग गये।

Dear Devotees, your prayers can make a difference!

The Sublimation Of Work By Gautam Saha

THE NEED TO SUBLIMATE INDIVIDUAL WORK FOR ULTIMATE PERSONAL SATISFACTION AND HAPPINESS

Many a times, we wonder “what bit of good have I done today ?” After all, everything said and done, life is pretty mechanical and also largely material. We follow the same working routines day after day, year in and year out, in whatever profession or calling we have chosen for ourselves, or had been pushed into or drifted into by the compulsions of need, convenience, location, education, ambition, or just in

Sunny Spots by Bhaktimarga Swami

I’m receiving a lot of sympathy calls and mail. How sweet it is! Thank you all!

My peers do the same! Some of it’s fun, like the message I received from Devamrita Swami, regarding recovery:

“Some have written praying that you walk over the Covid. Other say no, “trample it.” I pray, Dance out of it, in your signature Vaishnava-Motown style!”

Thank you, dear Devamrita Swami. You lift my spirits.

Two more sunny spots of the day I’ll describe and brief. For a Halifax group I Zoomed in to deliver a

The universe around us appears to be orderly and symmetrical. The planets rotate perfectly in their orbits. Our bodies possess complex circulatory, respiratory, and digestive systems. Even the atoms are highly structured. All this suggests that the universe was created not by chance, but by an intelligent person. If human beings can create houses, skyscrapers, and many other structures, it is plausible that a person far more powerful than any human created the universe and everything in it.

Lord Krishna and the Bhagavad-gita

8781746874?profile=RESIZE_584xThis is a story which happened in Benares about 300 years ago:
There was one Brahmin who used to take bath in Manikarnika-ghat, a very nice bathing place. One day when he was taking bath he saw a young boy sitting on the steps crying. He felt very compassionate and he went and took the young boy on his lap and asked, “You look so beautiful, a nice attractive young boy. Why are you crying like this?”
“You look at my back,” the boy replied. So when the brahmin lifted up the young boy’s shirt and l

Anger Management by Syamananda Dasa

From Back to Godhead

There are at least 300 books available at your online bookseller dealing with anger. Many of them just contain pop-culture variety of self-help advice on the dangers of uncontrolled anger. Anger is just one letter short of danger as these experts remind us. Lord Krishna, in the very beginning of the Gita encourages Arjuna to control anger and praises someone who has successfully done it as “a sage of steady mind.” It is quite natural to see many people today disbelie
