Krsna is the only husband of all Jivas,but this is not a license for adultery or remarriage

SB 5.18.17: Accompanied during the daytime by the sons of the Prajāpati [the predominating deities of the days] and accompanied at night by his daughters [the deities of the nights], Lakshmīdevī worships the Lord during the period known as the Samvatsara in His most…

Giriraja you are my life and soul!

Giriraja you are my life and soul!

I can not live without you, you are my GBC,TP regional secretary, my Guru, and you make up

for the loving god brothers I never had. The day I neglect you is a hell, the day I worship you and think of you

and chant 64 rounds in front of you is bliss and I am alive spiritually.What is the use of so much Bhakti if it

does not include Your seva?How can anyone attain seva to Radha Krsna without… Continue

email about fasting on Narasimha Caturdasi

dear Devotees

Please accept my humble obaisences

All glories to Srila Prabhupada

Why are some serving grains and taking grains on Narasimha Catrudasi? The answer is simple:

BG 2.44: In the minds of those who are too attached to sense enjoyment and material opulence, and who are bewildered by such things, the resolute determination for devotional service to the Supreme Lord does not take place.

Plus ignorance of the proper standard, .

Lord Narasimha…

Manjari bhava is no cheap thing

Manjari Bhava is no cheap thing

We can read in Jaiva Dharma how one vaisnava was chanting 2 laks holy names for 30 years and then told the

other vaisnavas on that day he had become a madhyama adhikari.And some are talking manjari bhava?First we have to

give up the enjoying spirit and fully accept Krsna as the Supreme enjoyer and controller.By not chanting 64 rounds

daily one shows zero adhikara for attaining Vraja Bhava because Lord Caitanya gave this instruction to…

"Crack pot philosophy" and" maya will give another body" by Srila Prabhupada



a very interesting question is raised by Lokanath Maharaja to Srila Prabhupada in this lecture:

Lokanatha: Srila Prabhupada, what is the position of vrajavasis, those who are living in Vrndavana now? What happens to them next life?

Prabhupada: Yes. Simply by living, if they do not commit any sinful, they'll go back to home. Simply by living. Without committing any sinful activities. Always remember Krsna, this is Krsna's land, man-mana bhava mad-bhakto.… Continue

3. I meditate on Sri Navadvipa, where in every direction are cooling breezes and many trees where Lord Gaura enjoyed His noon pastimes.

4. I meditate on Sri… Continue
