We’re All in Maya

From Back to Godhead

By Nagaraja Dasa

In the Bhagavad-gita (7.14) Lord Krishna refers to maya, the deluding material energy, as mama maya: “My maya.” We Vaishnavas accept His word on this, with profound philosophical implications.…

A magic book

By Rachael LeValley

A song called Throw It Away, by the talented Abbey Lincoln, is a song I’ve often sung to call to the Spiritual World in times of distress… I would use the song (and its affect on me) to call to the ancestors to impart guidance and wisdom in times of material crisis – of which I’ve had my share.

I think about the life I live… I…

Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura, appeared in Sri Ksetra Dhama, (Jagannatha Puri) on February 6th 1874 as the son of Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura.

Lisbon’s Mantra Yoga Lounge Changes Lives

A Mantra Yoga Lounge in Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, is attracting young people to begin chanting. And it’s changing lives in the process.

Krishna consciousness in Portugal is surprisingly recent. Although there were several attempts by devotees to preach there in the 1970s and 1980s, ISKCON Lisbon was born as late as 1996, as a gift to Srila Prabhupada for his Centennial.…

Two Essential Keys To Increase Our Attraction To Sri Krishna

By Sacinandana Swami

Our greatest problem is that we have turned away from Krishna. This one action has turned into our existential dilemma. We are lost servants. But strangely we think, at least unconsciously, that it is Krishna who has abandoned us. Only when we become eager to meet Krishna again, and serve Him with body, mind and heart – as eager as a drowning man is eager…

Life of Mixed Blessings At Santa Clara, Cuba On 4th December, 2017

By Bhaktimarga Swami


I believe there are more horse-driven buggies in Rodas than there are cars, thus, you’re looking at heaven.  The few motorized conveyances in this town spew out dark fumes, thus, you’re looking at hell.  The area around is blessed with great agricultural soil.  That’s good.  There are vegetables, fruits, sugar cane, beans and rice.  On the…

“The frenzy of love and the frenzy of hate…”

By Kadamba Kanana Swami

If Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakura would be with us today then he would be a BBT man because he was trained by this father, Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakur, in publishing books. He published so many varieties of books and magazines. Book distribution is a natural thing…

Srila Prabhupada was carrying forward that…

Eddy Alejandro is not an ordinary Cuban.  He’s a well-known musician, and his son, Christopher, is following in his dad’s footsteps.  Eddy had lots of questions about the life of a monk and it was natural, since his more deepened quest for life set in recently as his mum just passed away.  This doesn’t mean to say he’s contemplating a life of…

The beginning..

By Kadamba Kanana Swami

Printing books certainly is our family business. There is no doubt about that. Although the early days of ISKCON were centred around harinama and distribution of magazines on the street still Prabhupada printed books. Prabhupada had arranged books to be printed and there were basements filled with books and no one knew what to do with them. 

So the…

Krishna and Christ: Are they same or different?

By Purushottam Kumar

While being crucified, Jesus cried. But he did not cry for himself, instead he cried for those who were committing the gravest sin. Jesus was continuously praying to God to forgive those who were menacingly torturing and trying to kill him. Jesus, the son of God, had come to this world to spread the message of peace and love and to effect this change he…

The Prabhupada Marathon. Sentiment or Effective Outreach?

Nostalgia is nothing more than a sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past. Sréla Prabhupada’s Marathon, the worldwide end-of-year push by ISKCON devotees to increase book distribution, is far from sentimental; rather, it…
