Srila Lochana Dasa Thakur Disappearance

Lochana Dasa Thakura

He mentions an especially touching conversation Shri Gaurasundara had with Vishnupriya Devi the night before He took sannyasa. Being a talented musician, Lochana Dasa told Mahaprabhu's pastimes in beautiful poetry filled with fire and rhythm. Common people could easily understand the divine character of Shri Chaitanya and awaken their religious feelings. As Devotees regularly chant the Vedic epics Ramayana and Mahabharata, Gaudiya Vaishnava's still…

Srila Ramachandra Kaviraja Disappearance

THE VEDIC CARE COOPERATIVE

I have recently become involved with a group that some of you know about, and those that don't should. It is called the "Vedic Care Cooperative". It is a wonderful organization that is working to offer real care to devotees in need.



Imagine a devotee forced by circumstances into a retirement home. He is surrounded by non-devotees who do not understand his needs. There are strange images and sounds, meat eating is rampant. There is no one to chant with, and no one to discuss…

Krsna Pusya abhiseka

During the morning puja, or worship, the Deity or a salagrama is bathed in pure ghee. Srila Prabhupada once explained the festival this way: "Krishna was just a toy in the hands of the Gopis, so one day the Gopis decided that we shall decorate Him. Pusya abhisheka means a ceremony to decorate the deity profusely with flowers, ornaments, cloths. After there should be lavish feasting and a procession through the streets, so that all the citizens should see how beautiful…

"You must fight."

Śrīla Prabhupāda Says -

"The God says that "Here is injustice, so you should fight." God says that. God never says that "I am God, Kṛṣṇa. I am your friend. You sit down idly and I shall do everything." He never said that. He said that "You must fight." That is our duty, not that God has given us hands and legs and…

I depend upon Sri Krsna and Lord Nityananda to carry me through

Chant Hare Krsna and be happy, it is said. But, I live in this world, it does not disappear but rather seems all the more visible and even understandable. I chant Hare Krsna, and see beauty and compassion, but rather than being happy, I all the more see the sufferings of others, and feel the frustration and misery of…

Treat they neighbor as you would also be treated...

This is why I abhor the GBCs and the Catholic Church; they wallow in self-aggrandizement, even letting other Vaisnavas drink the water used to wash their feet. They are all going to hell.…
