living with devotees makes it easier to hear from them, whereas hearing is more difficult over a distance

"Certainly association with devotees is essential. However, we attain association according to our qualification. It is not a fact that simply by living together we can take advantage of good association and it is true that we can associate with devotees even when we live a distance from them. Association does not necessarily mean living in the same room. However, living with devotees makes it easier to hear…

offering prasadam; courtesy Online Bhakta Program Group, spi.

"Regarding your 2 questions: For offering prasadam simply prayers to the Spiritual Master is sufficient. The process is that everything is offered to the Spiritual Master, and the Spiritual Master is supposed to offer the same foodstuff to the Lord. When a thing is offered to the Spiritual Master, he immediately offers to the Lord. That is the system, and as we come by parampara system, it is our duty to go through the right channel—namely, first the Spiritual Master, then Lord Caitanya, and then Krishna. So when we chant prayers, we do this, Bande ham Sri Guru . . . and gradually to the Goswamis, then to Lord Caitanya, and then to Radha Krishna. That is the praying system. But offering the prasadam to present everything before the Spiritual Master whose picture is also in the altar, means that the Spiritual Master will take care of offering the foodstuff to the Lord. Therefore simply by chanting the prayer to the Spiritual Master, everything will be complete." Srila Prabhupada's Letter to: Harer Nama -- Allston, Mass 28 May, 1968

Comment on Mantra 5 of Sri Ispoanisad:

In this mantra, we see what appears to the human mind as a series of contradictions. From the standpoint of logic, one can either walk or not walk. One can either be near or far. It would be a contradiction to claim…

(Divyaprabhanda 1:10).

Forty-six years before the beginning of Kali-yuga, Vishnuchittha, one of the twelve great Alwar Vaishnava saints of the Sri Sampradaya predicted: "There will come a race which will tread the Earth with raised hands and vertical tilaka on their foreheads, who will chant the names of Hari; this will destroy the influence of Kali."…

What is the Local (spi) Doctrine ?

Pinch of Ashes

Prabhupada, London, August 20, 1973: [...] My Guru Maharaja used to say that if we pray to God for all these nonsense things, it is just like a man goes to a king and the king says, “Whatever you want you can ask from me,” and if the man says, “Kindly give me a pinch of ashes.” It is like that. If we ask from God for some material benefit, it means that I am asking from a king a pinch of ashes.…
