Chanting Like a Rock

ISKCON never was a place for wimps. Back in the day, maybe one in four could hack the program for long enough to get the "taste" that kept us "in" in the long run.

I do not engage in any activity outside of the instructions of Śrī Gurudeva, just to fulfill the intentions of others.



"To associate with someone means to accept something from them.

I only accept what I have received from my śrī gurudeva; I do not accept anything from anyone else.…

Arjuna had to fight in the battlefield, but at the same time he heard Bhagavat Gita. Our Motto shall be like that! Neither we shall fight alone, without Krsna consciousness,…

Lord Ṛṣabhadeva told His sons: My dear boys, of all the living entities who have accepted material bodies in this world, one who has been awarded this human form should not work hard day and night simply for sense gratification, which is available even for dogs and hogs that eat stool.
