An Interrupted Life

Interruptions are a part of life. They often come when least expected and have us doing things we never planned to do.

For most of us, Krishna comes as an interruption in our life. There we were living as best we could, planning our future and how we may work or study, live or travel. Then…

12 Simple Daily Meditations

How to know Krishna? How to get a sense of who He is, a feeling towards Him? How can we think about Him naturally throughout the day and not just while we battle with our mind during our chanting practice? In other words, can we meditate off the mat and into the day?

It’s an ancient practice and similar practices can be found in many religious traditions – the muttering, murmuring, or calling out of God’s name over and over again. When we call someone by their name we feel close to them – even if we are not…

Give your heart even when it hurts by Kadamba Kanana Swami

Give your heart to everyone, even if they don’t give anything back. It hurts sometimes when people are hard-hearted and not responding properly but take that pain with patience and carry on. Somehow, keep on chiseling at stone. Get through that barrier. In the Netherlands,…
