better to die than fall from sannysa

I once heard about Visnujana Swami from Tamala Krsna Maharaja in Vrindavan, he stated Visnujana asked the question about Chota Haridasa ,and Srila Prabhupada confirmed it is better to commit suicide than fall down as a sannyasi, but then stated that one should just stay on in KC, but I personally take it that Visnujana Swami is a reminder how strict a sannyasi should be , no one should fault him, he has shown real vaisnava character..and Srila PRabhupada confirmed that is he preaching in the…

My Yugal Kisora Govardhana Sila

 

Here is something about Yugala Kisora Govardhana Sila.I got my first Govardhana Sila in 1986.I had been worshipping Govardhana Sila and Salagrama Sila for some months in Vrindavana, and obtained an Ugra Narasimha Salagrama Sila in



Haridwara during the Kumba Mela that year. But I was getting very attached to Govardhana Sila worshipping Him every day in Vrindavana (on the alter) .I learned to worship from my very expert godbrother Kaliya Krsna Prabhu who is from a…

The heart of Lord Narasimhadeva

dear devotees

Please accept my humble obaisences

All glories to Srila Prabhupada

So often Srila Prabhupada explained all living being are to be protected, they are prajna..also inhabitants of the state.I was walking on my japa walk and this squirrel l just runs into the street and sits under the car tire, as it was red light ,he was about to get killed. I ran into the street and then he ran back into the tree so I thought by Krsnas grace he is safe, again he ran into the…

Utpanna Ekadasi

 

— Utpanna Ekadasi (Margasirsa-krsna Ekadasi), from the Bhavisya-uttara Purana.



Suta Goswami said, "O learned brahmanas, long ago Lord Sri Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, explained the auspicious glories of Sri Ekadasi and the rules and regulations governing each observance of fasting on that holy day. O best of the brahmins, whosoever hears about the origins and glories of these sacred fasts on the Ekadasi days goes directly to the abode of Lord Vishnu after…

Fasting on Ekadasi not Dasami

By Payonidhi das



Dear Maharajas and Prabhu,Matajis and Didis



Please accept my humble obaisences



all glories to Srila Prabhupada



With great concern I have been informed that some temples do not follow the calculated times of fasting in their time zone and this may well cause many persons to fast on dasami instead of ekadasi, I have included the quotes from Hari Bhakti Vilasa , as this is very inauspicious ,some devotees follow the Mayapure calendar… Continue

Srila Prabhupadas disappearance day

Today is such a sad day to remember as Srila Prabhupada disappeared from our external vision, one of the things that mitigates separation from Srila Prabhupada is reading his letters.



I recall in Vrindavan every day devotees put a letter on Srila Prabhupadas desk, and devotees after mongal artik would come to Srila Prabhupadas house and pay obaisences and chant there, it is such beautiful rooms.



Srila Prabhupadas bed is there still. All devotees would chant their gayatris… Continue

Confession is a big part of the catholics.My wife is a former catholic and she told me how she lived at a convent in Georgetown ,Washington DC when she first came to the US.The nuns wanted her to confess ,she said what is my sins, the priest is also a human being ,why should I confess to him? Ultimatly she left and started her regular job.Kundali Prabhu when he left ISKCON wrote what I thought was a confession of what his weakest moments where.I thought it was very honest.However properly the… Continue

question about Lord Narasimha and Laxmi and my answer

Hare Krishna,

Please accept my humble obeisances . All glories to Srila Prabhupada!



Thank you very much for clarifying my doubt! You have made it clear now for me. However there is another doubt - If you go to places in South India especially Ahobilam you can see erotic images of Nrsimha touching the breast of Chencu Lakshmi carved on the temple walls. There are also others but I lost those images I saved on my computer therefore I do not know. The picture I attached is a deity… Continue

do not worship conditioned souls..email to Yogindra Vandana Prabhu

dear Yogindra Vandana das Prabhu
Please accept my humble obaisences
All glories to Srila Prabhupada
I am sorry you have become a blind uncle I would never place your feet on my head , what to speak of Hrdayananda..by worship of conditioned souls one becomes conditioned.
And one develops material desires.One should never wash the feet of a conditioned soul, it means no one in ISKCON is fit for this treatment.
Srila Prabhupada was.
Your servant

Are you really following Gaura Govinda Swami?
