We should be happy with that.’ But we work very, very hard for the pleasure of Guru, not for ourselves. We shouldn’t work at all hard for ourselves, we should work for Krishna.

If only I were upper class then I would really have what I want. And the upper class thinking, Ah! If only I was a millionaire, then I would really, really be successful in this world.

Yesterday I was riding in an airplane and I was sitting to one young college student, and he was asking nice questions.

Their vision is based on faith in God. Their vision is, that Krishna is perfect and complete, that Krishna is the supreme controller of all controllers, that I am his servant. And whether I am educated or uneducated does not matter. What really matters is what I do have I dedicate in the loving service of the lord. Whether one is a scholar or wheth…
 
Lord Shiva is in charge of all the demigods. Therefore, Krishna brought them to their guru. Similarly, we are all disciples, we are all devotees and Krishna has directed us to our spiritual master. So, in the same way he is serving that same function as Lord Shiva is serving for the demigods.Kirjoittanut Radhanath Swami
 
Sometimes devotees become a little perplexed that, “First you say an acharya teaches by example and he is a perfect example and then again, we see that sometimes the acharya, he is acting in such a way that we cannot understand.” So what to do? How do we know who actually is an acharya? Ultimately Krishna is in your heart, if you are sincere, he wi…
 
And it is said you can tell who a person is by who he is associating with. Lord Shiva is often associating with bhutas, ghosts, people who are addicted to the most abominable activities. So, from all material reasoning it appears ‘What kind of vaisnava is this?’ And therefore many, many great souls have criticized him and condemned him and every on…
 
His Divine Grace A C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupad, he had translated Srimad Bhagavatam and he has give wonderful purport according to all previous Acharyas. Those who read his Bhagavatam and associate with his devotees it is very simple to understand the essence of pure devotional service. But without the blessings of such a pure soul, how many Bh…
 
But Lord Chaitanya remembered that offense and face to face with Devananda Pandit he said that: “you are reciting Srimad Bhagavatam but the Person Bhagavatam came right into your school, the pure devotee of Krishna who has realized the essence of Bhagavatam and because you are a fool, you do not understand what is love of God, you have thrown him o…
 
We must learn from our mistakes. A mistake is only a mistake if we do not learn a good lesson from it and follow that wisdom.

It is a blessing when we fa…
 
“Krishna I'm chanting, to be your servant to please you to purify my heart so that I can love you and be an instrument of your compassion to the people of this world with whatever I have, not denying the gifts that God has given us, but using them and devotion.” In this spirit, we could realize the highest truths and discover that lost love within …
 
Viswanath Chanravarti Thakur, our beloved acharya explains it in this way, that this is Krishna’s mission to remove the burden from Mother Earth, to remove her to the miseries of the weight of so many people plundering, abusing and committing sinful activities upon her. What is our right? We divide up the earth and call it our own with no regard to…
 
Srila Prabhupada, as did Bhakti Siddhant Saraswati Thakur promised their followers that, if we are sincere to carry out their instructions in our life at the end of life we will certainly go back home back to godhead and we know that Krishna never betrays the words of His devotees.Kirjoittanut Radhanath Swami
 
The siksha gurus, the diksha gurus, are all to be given proper respect according to our shastras. However, whatever our position is, we are all simply trying to work together to assist Srila Prabhupada in his service to his guru maharaja, that is our life, that is our soul. Vyas Puja is the day when devotees offer their gratitude to our entire guru…
 
Maya means energy. Maya means the energy of God. And Maya is categorized, sometimes in two ways: categorized as Maha-Maya, and Yoga-Maya. It's the same energy. This whole material world is God's energy. All the manifestations within this energy are under the influence of time, therefore, they're temporary. And they're under the influence of the thr…
 
There are limitless reasons we can justify not chanting Hare Krishna, going off on our own, trying to find something easier to do, complaining because the situation just isn't what we want it to be. But if we want to actually make real spiritual advancement, if we want to really show gratitude, ‘How could I best assist my guru, my gurus in assistin…

Why people are killing themselves. And it's once they become addicted, it's so very, very hard to give it up. It's unnatural. I don't think there has ever been a person alive, who light the first cigarette that they smoked. It's horrible. Due to social pressure, they try, they start coughing, it tastes miserable, the body is having violent reaction…
 
Krishna brought that cowherd boy to his own house and shared prasad with him. The perfection of His love, is he feels pain of separation, to see any one of his children suffering in forgetfulness of him.

To attract our hearts to his love, to his past times, to reestablish the true principles of religion, love and devotion to the supreme and compassion to all living beings, that is religion, that is the constitutional nature of the soul.

I began to reflect, ‘This is the power of habit. Good people, caring people are indulging in activities that's causing bloodshed, murder, killing, pain to innocent life loving animals who are people also. Why? Because of habit.

And a saintly person will pity such an ignorant although the world is bowing at their feet as being great, yes?

ഒരിക്കൽ ഒരു കാട്ടിൽ രണ്ട് ചങ്ങാതിമാർ പാർത്തിരുന്നു, ഒരാൾ ഒരു ചീങ്കണ്ണിയും, മറ്റെയാൾ ഒരു കുരങ്ങും. അവർ വളരെ യഥാർത്ഥ ചങ്ങാതിമാരായിരുന്നു. കാട്ടിൽ ഒരു നദിയുണ്ടായിരുന്നു. ചീങ്കണ്ണി ആ നദിയിലും, കുരങ്ങൻ അതിന് ചുറ്റുമുള്ള കാട്ടിലുമാണ് വസിച്ചിരുന്നത്. എല്ലാ ദിവസവും വൈകുന്നേരങ്ങളിൽ അവർ തമ്മിൽ കാണുമായിരുന്നു. നദിയുടെ കരയിൽ ഒരു അത്തിമരം നില്പുണ്ടായിരുന്നു. കു…

ഒരിക്കൽ ഒരേ അയൽപക്കത്ത് രണ്ട് വ്യക്തികൾ താമസിച്ചിരുന്നു. ഒരാൾ വളരെ അത്യാഗ്രഹിയും മറ്റെയാൾ ഒരു അസൂയക്കാരനും ആയിരുന്നു. എന്ത് കിട്ടിയാലും അത്യാഗ്രഹി കൂടുതൽ കിട്ടുവാൻ അതിയായി കൊതിച്ചി രുന്നു. ഒന്നും അയാൾക്ക് മതിയാകുമായിരുന്നില്ല. നേരേ മറിച്ച്, അസൂയക്കാരൻ ഒരു വ്യത്യസ്ഥ മനുഷ്യനായിരുന്നു. കൂടുതൽ കിട്ടണമെന്ന വലിയ ആശയൊന്നും അയാൾക്കു ണ്ടായിരുന്നില്ല. പക്ഷെ,…

He was seeing these two devas, they were so arrogant, they were so disrespectful. They were destroying their own possibilities. Narada Muni felt especially compassionate toward them. And he told them, “Because you are so much infatuated by all your powers and wealth, and beauty, and you think yourself better than everyone.” The quality of the great…
 
When Krishna sees that for his pleasure, we are not being discouraged by success or failure, honor or dishonor, pleasure or pain, happiness or distress, health or disease, victory or defeat. Devotional service is ahaituky apratihatā; it is unconditional by these things. As long as there is selfishness or arrogance in what we do, then we become very…

And at this particular time, I'm personally meditating on how His Holiness Bhakti Charu Swami Maharaj was very much following in the footsteps of Ishwara Puri. Bhakti Charu Maharaj, he was born and raised in an aristocratic family in Kolkata, was very highly educated, eloquent in every way. But the perfection of his life, he has always considered w…
 
Sometimes Bhakti Charu Maharaj, on a personal level would share with me that we were soul brothers. In a way because at exactly the time, same time in 1970, I was leaving the West travelling overland to India to look for spiritual life. And Bhakti Charu Maharaj was traveling west for the same purpose. And of course, I don't remember or recall that …

He awakened in full King Pratap …

I was left with nothing. And I was thinking, “Ok, what am I supposed to learn from this?” And I got a wonderful lesson, as the Bible says, seek and you shall find.
