Janmastami Lila by ISKCON of Washington D.C

We all like a good story. It makes our day, inspires our heart, and we experience a gamut of emotions. When it comes to Krishna’s birth story he doesn’t disappoint. In Sanskrit, stories about God are called Lila. This is to remind us that His stories are not of the world, although sometimes taking place in the world.

There are many reasons Krishna comes here, and they converge, layer upon layer, story upon story, to create ”Lila”. For his…

The Gift of You by ISKCON of Washington D.C

As we approach Janmastami, Krishna’s birthday, we’ll be thinking of what to give. It’s a birthday celebration after all and everyone’s invited. The guest list is unlimited and when it’s a birthday we think of expressing our love with a gift.

Each of us has a unique and personal relationship with Krishna. Our world is not just me, myself and I. It’s me, the world, and Krishna. And still, this is our story as we are the main player. Everyone…

Nourishing consciousness by Matsyavatara das

Every morning the meditation on theMahamantra offers us the possibility to discover important things, for example to achieve those intuitions which are rarely obtained during other moments of the day, because usually we are too busy in carrying out our worldly activities or mundane duties, which, of course, are also useful if we make them functional to our…

Brief History of the Relation between the Vedic and Western World Views by Sadaputa dasa

In The Late Eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, European scholars and scientists began to come in contact with the culture of India. Many were impressed by the antiquity of Vedic civilization and the deep spiritual and material knowledge contained in the Vedic literature. But other European intellectuals were dismayed by these developments. For example, in 1825 the British scholar John Bentley wrote of his conflict with the scientist John…

A detailed history of the harmonium!

The harmonium was born in Europe – so how did it become synonymous with Indian music?

The Indian harmonium similarly made its way to the United States in the first half of the 20th century, but it was the Asian immigration wave in the 1950s-1960s that popularised it.

This was also the period of the American Counterculture, an anti-establishment cultural movement fuelled by such disparate elements as women’s rights, race relations, and…

One year in Vrindavan during Srila Prabhupada’s disappearance day program, one of Srila Prabhupada’s earliest disciples, Gargamuni, was present.

Reflections on Srila Prabhupada and His Service, August 21, Galt, California by Giriraj Swami

“Mrs. Nair’s husband died, and eventually she had a a change of heart. She surrendered to Srila Prabhupada and said, ‘I really didn’t go along with my husband; I didn’t want him to do that.’ Srila Prabhupada replied, ‘Don’t worry. You are like my daughter. If a man is going on the wrong path in the morning and comes to the right path in the evening, he is not lost. Now you have taken the right path and have reached home. You can stay in…

Double-edged Sword by Sutapa das

The Bhagavad-gita likens knowledge to a sword (jnana-asina). Its sharp edge can lop off our doubts and give birth to firm conviction. Yet, the acquisition of knowledge comes with a great responsibility. If one neglects to cultivate the appropriate devotional disposition, the sword of knowledge can actually be misused in one’s spiritual journey. Ancient sages therefore placed immense emphasis on the development of character, especially for those…

Romapada Swami answers "Is it possible to overcome depression and fear?"

Question. 1. How to overcome depression? Right from my student days I have developed inferiority complex and at times I find it really difficult to overcome. My parents and brother have been extremely supportive to me in this regard. But still it is not totally gone. After getting introduced to Krishna Consciousness through my brother, things improved a lot but when my Sadhana started going down and is not consistent, this also started to lead me to hopeless mind state. Are there some…

Most often, one question that keeps nagging  us when we are chronically sick, when our losses (financial , or any other) suffering and pain becomes unbearable prompting us to ask " WHY ME OF ALL THE PEOPLE"? . The more it hurts, when we review the balance sheet of our life in the most truthful manner and find that we have been fairly good in our conduct and if not the very best , at least we have never harmed any one intentionally then why the never ending dark clouds…
