!! Happy Gaur Purnima 2015 !!

1) O my dear Lord Gauranga! Please show Your mercy to this lowly and destitute soul. O Lord! There is no one more fallen than myself in all the three worlds.

 

2) Holding grass between my teeth, O Lord Gaura, I am calling out to You now! Please be compassionate upon me and come to reside within the temple of my heart.

3) If You do not give Your mercy, seeing how fallen I am, then why are You known as Patita Pavana -- the…

Lord Caitanya’s simple solution for salvation

Have we ever given any exam or even heard of it where the examinee is given the question and its answer beforehand lest he should not fail. Not just he is given the answer to the complex questions but even the solution is made so simple that the examinee does not have to undergo any mental or physical…

Chitrakoot memories!

Hare krsna,

Fortunately, by god's mercy, I got a chance to visit Chitrakoot, in an ISKCON yatra.

I want to share some of my life time memories of Chitrakoot with you all. And I would be glad to read yours as well, of course, if you manage to get sufficient time, to write them; otherwise, its totally fine.

I must say this, being a holy place, each and everything at Chitrakoot is just amazing!

Whenever I think of Chitrakoot or hear about it, or read about it, the…

Thought Of The Day

So this is the process. The basic principle is the soul. The soul is acting through intelligence, and the intelligence is acting through mind, and the mind is expressed through the senses. This is the position. So as my mind is absorbed in something, some subject matter, my bodily symptoms also will work, or the senses will work according to that mind. Therefore for spiritual advancement also, you have to train your mind. Sa vai manah krsna-padaravindayor vacamsi vaikuntha-gunanuvarnane. If…

Thought Of The Day

You are under the clutches of maya. you have no independence. Neither anyone has got any independence to save you. That is not possible. The same example as I gave sometimes, that you learn how to drive aeroplane. So you go high in the sky. But if you are in danger, no other aeroplane can help you. You are finished. Therefore you must be a very careful pilot to take care of yourself. Similarly, in this material world everyone individually has to take care of himself. How he can be saved from…

Early in the morning on Saturday, September 13, 2014, my husband Haripada dasa and I picked up a couple of friends--Sarva-drik Prabhu and his wife Sudevi dasi--and headed north.  We arrived at the Medium Security Facility of the Petersburg Prison in Virginia around 11:15 a.m.  We were checked through security, our hands were stamped, and we were escorted through several heavy, metal doors until we found ourselves in the…

Thought Of The Day

You can become immediately out of the scope of maya if you always remain surrendered to Krsna. Maya will not touch you. Just like if you remain always in the sunshine, there is no question of night. Nowadays it is very easy. If you simply drive your plane on the western side, you'll never get night. You just round about. Yes. Just like it is materially possible. You drive your plane simply on the western side. Start your plane in the morning and go to the western side and don't stop it. You…

Srila Prabhupada- A Vaikuntha Person at Bangkok Airport by HG Srutakirti Dasa

     Srila Prabhupada distributed his mercy without distinction. This is the kindness of the pure devotee. On a flight from India to the west, we had a two hour stop over at the Bangkok airport. We had to wait in the transit area.

     Srila Prabhupada said to me, “Get my things. I am going to shower.” I went to the baggage area, opened Srila Prabhupada’s bag, grabbed his lota, towel and fresh change of clothing. It took me a…
