Sri Kantha Krishnamacharyulu was a poet and musician who composed sankeertanas in praise of Varaha Narasimha. As Narasimha danced listening to those songs, Krishnamacharyulu began showing offensive attitude towards others with arrogance. When Ramanuja visited Simhachalam later, Krishnamacharyulu did not treat him properly. Ramanuja wanted to know whether Vishnu…Continue

question raised 11 years ago :
Nityananda Gauranga Hare Krishna! First I will just raise the issue before we can discuss further.
A very big question in the Ramayana is why Lord Rama would banish Sita Devi to the forest just like that? People do not understand these matters in the Uttara Khanda because they treat it like some mundane love story and cannot fathom some deeper truths in the Lord’s actions.
For this reason, editions of Ramayana other than Valmiki Ramayana do…Continue

Sri Ramachandra Kavacha !
1.Aajanu bahum aravindalayathaksham,
Aajanma shuddha rasa hasa mukha prasadam,
Shyamam graheeths sara chapa mudhara roopam,
Ramam sa ramamabhiramamanusmarami.
I think about Rama who is every second pretty,
Who has hands reaching up to his thighs , who has lotus like eyes,
Who is pure all his life, who has a smiling face ,
Who is black , who holds bow and arrow and has a generous form.
Asya Sri Rama…Continue

Arjuna is know as Jishnu ,one who never fights dirty in war ,only once in his life did he break Ksatriya codes on Krsnas direct order !
Krsna told Arjuna to kill Karna while his wheel was stuck normally kstariyas in Vedic times would not kill an unarmed man untill he got armed and the fighting was mostly fair.But Krsna to avenge Abhimanyu told Arjuna to kill Karna, there is no wrong in this killing because Krsna is God and His order is absolute ! We should honor Krsna and…Continue

The next printing should be again to the original way
Yasoda-nandana : Sometimes they appeal that "We can make better English," so they change like that, just like in the case of Isopanisad. There are over a hundred changes. So where is the need? Your words are sufficient. The potency is there.... When they change, it is something else. Svarupa Damodara: That's actually a very dangerous mentality. Yasoda-nandana : What is it going to be in five years? It's going to be a different…Continue

7th Canto of Garga Samhita
Yesterday Miniketana Rama finished translating 7canto of Garga Samhita from Russian into English so here it is :

Narasimha astra !
Garga Samhita canto 7 chapter 3 to 5 mentiones Sisupala fighting against Lord Krsnas son Padyumna, of course He is not only Krsnas son but the incarnaton of Lord Krsnas Caturvuyha expansion Lord Pradyumna ,who is also the transcendental Kamadeva and worshipped as mentioned in Srimad Bhagavatam 5 canto chapter 18-19..You might have read the pastimes in Krsna book and Srimad Bhagavatam about Praydumna so Lord Pradyumna ended up fighting Sisupala (who is an incarnation of…

Narasimha Astra :
Miniketana Rama send me this but failed to mention where in Garga Samhita this is from , but it supports what I stated that the Narasimha astra is the incarnation of Lord Narasimha :

And then a fierce battle began between Shakuni and Pradyumna. When Shakuni used Rauravastra, created by Maya Danava,…
