On this day in 1965, Srila Prabhupada left Calcutta aboard the steamship Jaladuta.

Balarama Purnima

Lord Balarama is the first personal expansion of Lord Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. All other incarnations expand from Him. In Lord Krsna’s pastimes, He plays as Krsna’s older brother. Together Krsna and Balarama enact many pastimes as cowherd boys in the land of…

This is Hymn in thirty two slokas on Hayagriva, the Supreme God of learning in Vaishnava Sampradaya.

The deceit of the nirapeksa-sadhaka (the renunciant)

A major trap of maya.....This is certainly not a benediction.

>......The deceit of the nirapeksa-sadhaka (the renunciant) is that he maintains pride by thinking himself to be the topmost Vaisnava; he adopts the dress of a renunciant and due to false ego regards other sadhakas as inferior; he collects wealth and other material assets; he associates with women…

Swapna Dreams

On Friday, December 16, as I stood in the altar room with Prabhupada and a few other devotees, I had an unusual feeling. It seemed that I had known him always, yet simultaneously it seemed like we had just met. Although I had only known him for eight weeks, somehow, practically every time I spoke with him felt like a first-time meeting.



Prabhupada began describing a dream he had the previous night. In the dream all his disciples were in Tompkins Square Park, surrounded by thousands… Continue

The Isa Upanishad

 Because it is my favorite Shastra, I am going to write a little bit on why I love it so much, and loved it before I even knew what it meant!   I was given a copy of The Radha Krishna Temple album, with George Harrison. the "om Purnam" song as I called it was my favorite. Much later, I found out it was the first few stanzas if the Isopanishad.   Reading the Isopanishad, I loved it even more.  There is a lot to live up to in that little tiny Shastra!!!!   Only using what you need, not hating,…

Some timely thoughts...Tamohara dasa, MS, Bh.S

Some timely thoughts...

"Time I am" says Lord Krsna. Time is the single predominating influence, no one else can say that they are time. The less there is Krsna, the slower time becomes. The demigods' time is faster, one minute in their realms is one hour etc in lower realms where Godhead is…

Srila Prabhupada Speaks about his Gaudiya Math Godbrothers

Srila Prabhupada Speaks about his Gaudiya Math Godbrothers

I can understand someone getting a little bewildered about our relationship with Srila Prabhupada’s godbrothers before his letters and conversations were published, but what excuse does anyone have now? Any of Srila Prabhupada’s so-called disciples who still insist on associating with Srila Prabhupada’s godbrothers or godnephews after reading the quotes below are obviously not very…

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.…
