Lokanatha Goswami

His body and mind were completely attached to Vrindavanadhama. The divine Was of Radha-Vinoda played in his heart. His ears existed only to hear the Shrimad Bhagavatam. "Anyone who reads the Shrimad Bhagavatam," said Lokanatha Goswami, "he is my friend." (In the images: Shrila Lokanatha Goswami).

The Hare Kṛṣṇa movement is also an incarnation of Kṛṣṇa in the form of the holy name

Srila Prabhupada...."The Hare Kṛṣṇa movement is also an incarnation of Kṛṣṇa in the form of the holy name(nāma-rūpe). Every one of us who is actually afraid of the asuric rulers and politicians must welcome this incarnation of Kṛṣṇa: Hare Kṛṣṇa, Hare Kṛṣṇa, Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa, Hare Hare/ Hare Rāma, Hare Rāma, Rāma Rāma, Hare Hare. Then we will surely be protected from the harassment of asuric rulers. At the present moment these rulers are so powerful that by hook or by…

NEVER was there a time when i did not exist nor you

We do not buy the silly materialistic notion of the soul having a begginning in some void as if in eternity things have a begginning and an end. That is merely an explanation given to those who cannot grasp eternity and who yet demand to grasp something somehow that their minds can accept. Never falling from Goloka means there is no free will, and…
