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…

Joyful Prison Program

This article was written by Phalini devi dasi.

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…
