Vishnu's Web BY: BAHUSHIRA DASA (ACBSP)

BY: BAHUSHIRA DASA (ACBSP)



Dec 26, USA I often wondered about some of the mystical statements that Srila Prabhupada would make that would later be confirmed by science or by some intuitive individual. Here is an example. In a letter to Bhaktisvarupa Damodara dated April 27, 1976, Prabhupada wrote, "There are pathways leading from planet to planet made of gold and copper, etc." When I first read this I thought that Srila Prabhupada's statement was interesting because copper and gold… Continue

The Cause of Offense, the Formula for Friendship BY: JANANIVASA DASA (ACBSP)



The Cause of Offense, the Formula for Friendship

Dec 12, USA (SUN) — In considering the present status of Srila Prabhupada's mission one should remember the importance he has placed on the need for his disciples to work together in a cooperative spirit. Cooperation should be based on Srila Prabhupada's instructions concerning cultivation and distribution of transcendental knowledge, which he has declared to be the only real compassion we… Continue

Srila Prabhupada Memories ~Transcendental To The Rain BY Gauridasa Pandita Dasa (ACBSP)

Srila Prabhupada Memories ~Transcendental To The Rain (Vrindavan July 77)



This is another story that exemplifies Srila Prabhupada's pure transcendental nature and his full Krsna Consciousness.



Srila Prabhupada was translating his books every night on his rooftop in Sri Vrindavan Dham. It was summer time and cool. He liked to translate and make his purports under the Vrindavan stars. At about 2am one night I was awakened by loud… Continue

"Does He Remember Us?" Thoughts of Srila Gour Govinda Swami



Sri Srimad Gour Govinda Swami Maharaja



[Speaking to Uddhava regarding Krishna and Balaram’s activities after they left Vraja

and went to Mathura,] Nanda Maharaja said, “I heard that my brother Vasudev sent Krishna and Balaram to their guru’s house, Sandipani Muni’s ashram in Avantinagar. How my heart is splitting, Uddhava! They have become brahmacäris! They have to go out and beg alms for their guru! They have to collect samit, wood… Continue

Serving Srila Prabhupada's Shoes; Srila Prabhupada Memories

 

 

Chicago Rathayatra, '75



It was a warm humid summer in Chicago in Evanston at the Hare Krsna Temple, 1975. It was a wonderful temple, with Sri Sri Kishor-Kishori, Gour Nitai, and Lord Jagannatha Swami and his Brother Baladeva, and Their beautiful and sometimes ksatriya-like sister Subhadra devi, resplendent inside.



There were many devotees' vehicles, including the bus party, lining streets…

Bhakta Christopher: “It is Easier to Complain Than Take Action”



Bhakta Christopher, Sat, Dec 5, 2009 at 6:17 AM:



There is an old expression about being afraid of one’s own shadow. While it may be worrisome to see shadow organizations running “our world”, I propose there are far more frightening shadows (and their sources, which should concern us far more).



Similarities with the ongoing satanic New World Order operations and Maya-ISKCON’s continuance makes me suspect they are related… Continue

H.G.Visnurata Prabhu remembers his Gurudeva Gour Govinda Swami Maharajah



Actually I had very little association with Srila Gour Govinda Maharaja. The two things I first noticed and continued to notice about him was how humble he was. He projected no sense of pride or thought that he was superior to anyone--not even his disciples. But he was always roaring like a lion on the vyasasana. Also, he was always quite obviously deeply absorbed in something other than his immediate surroundings. My first thought was that it… Continue

Babaji Sannyasa by Swami B. G. Narasingha



by Swami B. G. Narasingha



Devotee: On this past Radhastami you gave Babaji Sannyasa (initiation) to a disciple of one of your Godbrothers (Srila Turya dasa Prabhu Mahasaya). But as per my understanding the Babaji Sannyasa is not authorized in the disciplic succession of your Guru Maharaja (A.C. Bhaktivedanta Svami Prabhupada). So why have you done something so unprecedented as this?



Swami Narasingha: Actually the precedence… Continue
