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

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…

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 ?

Tdasa -1  Lol ! Here at spi, we consider ourselves simply the modern followers of HDG A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupad, as he taught and set the perfect examples. There is no such thing as "ritvik philosophy", per se,  as we are simply following Prabhupada's philosophy.…

Looks to me like an organized well-thought out program to destroy Vedic culture.

Tamohara Dasa added; Hindus, so-called, fighting with each other over obscure and irrelevant religious issues instead of taking the yuga dharma under Mahaprabhu, Westernized biased anti-Hindu untrue history is taught to our children in the brainwash educational systems, IMF electronic currency scam / doing away with the freedom of use of money in favor of demon control is started in India, alliances made with the devil ie Israel, Moslems are encouraged to breed and take over, Hare Krsna…See More
