Simple Living, High Thinking - Philosophy and Application

Information

Simple Living, High Thinking - Philosophy and Application

Dear Devotees,
Please accept my humble obeisances.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

I originally intended this group for philosophical discussions among Latvian speaking devotees. Since I was not able to find many devotees interested in such discussions, hoping to be able to better serve devotees, I decided to change both the language and the theme of this group.

I am very inspired by the instructions of Srila Prabhupada and his followers on simple life and high thinking. Since spring 2012, I have been trying to live and practice Krishna consciousness in a simple rural environment, with its austerities, challenges an rewards. All devotees who are in any way connected to or interested in practicing Krishna consciousness in a rural environment are cordially invited to share their philosophical thoughts and practical experiences in this matter.

Krishna consciousness is transcendental to all mundane situations. One does not need to move to countryside to develop pure love for Krishna and go back to Godhead. Many of the greatest devotees spend much of their time travelling from one big city to another, sharing Krishna consciousness with as many people as possible. Others take great austerities to serve and maintain their ISKCON preaching centers and projects in the cities, thus earning the mercy of Guru and Krishna. Simple and natural life is not spiritual on its own. But Srila Prabhupada wanted devotees to also live and demonstrate a simple life in the countryside, and the rural environment and village life is in many ways the most natural and conducive situation for living a full, happy and healthy human life and remaining in spiritual consciousness.

I will try to regularly share here authoritative philosophy along with my own experience on simple life and high thinking, and I heartily invite other devotees to do the same. Please share your questions/desires/sugestions on how it could be improved. 

Hare Krishna!

Your humble servant,
Madhavi-lata d.d.

7. Mridu – svēts cilvēks ir līdzsvarotsParasti cilvēki reti ir līdzsvaroti, jo viņu prāts vienmēr ir uztraukts un jutekļi meklē dažādus apmierinājumus. Parasti cilvēki ir vai nu aizņemti, lai piepildītu savas mēles, vēdera, acu, ausu un dzimumorgānu…Continue
