Chant Gauranga ! and Be Happy
Maintaining a spiritual life can be difficult. Too often, we become distracted by some shiny new bauble Maya holds out in front of us. Like chanting, we must firmly bring our minds back to the goal of being a servant of the servant of Krishna. If we serve Srila Prabhupada faithfully, we defeat Maya. We need to follow His books, that is what is needed in Kali-yuga. Spirit of co-operation among godbrothers…Continue
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,…Continue

PAMHO AGTSP!!!!! I have been peeking in, but not participating. A lot has been going on in my life, maya-wise. My workplace received a new manager, who felt I was too slow filling bread, so I was bumped back to cashier. Then a whole bunch of people left, and a whole bunch of others were fired. My hours have been all over, literally. So it has been hard to set aside time, when I don't know when I will be working, or not. I just wanted to point out though, that there are many fabulous…Continue
2016 was a rough year for me personally, as I watched my aunt die of cancer through the first four months. Then ending with a terrorist attack on my son's college, and myself and my dog being attacked by another dog at the park(which was not that big a deal, but scary at the time.all involved are fine).
Sitewise, we have garnered new members, and are blessed with our on-going classes and participation in them.
A few good highlights: I saw the ocean in Charleston SC, saw Sue…Continue

So, you may have heard of the terrorist attack at Ohio State earlier. My youngest was there, but is safe. Krishna does protect. I had some moments of panic, as he was locked in a closet, and had no cell reception. But it has worked out ok. Terrorist is dead, and no one else killed. Jaya Shri Krishna! Jaya Shri Nrshimhadeva, who I feel was watching over Ohio State today.

Have a good, non-grumpy fast everyone, or if it is already over for you, hope it was a non-grumpy fast lol.

Hare Krishna, The Supreme watches out for us. My aunt's house was literally next door to a house that exploded due to a gas leak. She and my uncle are safe, actually, NO ONE was injured. A miracle, that truly was. The exploded house is gone, my aunt's house is barely there, a total mess. Waiting on inspections to see if it can be repaired, or if it needs to be torn down. so anyway, i may be off-line for awhile. Hold your loved ones close, keep to the four regs and chant chant chant. Maya…Continue
Hare Bol! It has been a personally tough year for me. At the end of 2013, my aunt Rita was diagnosed with lung and brain cancer. In March, my aunt Susy was diagnosed also with lung cancer. At the end of June, my husband and I separated for about 3 months, and…Continue
More politicking in Fiskcon by women wanting to be gurus... If you are a mom, you are ALREADY a guru. You teach your children how behave, how to be polite, cooking, so many things. Why the big deal over initiating privileges? oh right,…Continue
Thank you, Srila Prabhupada for coming to a foreign land of materialistic thieves and goons and trying to turn us into upstanding human beings.
Thank you to my fellow devotees for going on this journey with me to Goloka.
Thank you, Lord Krishna, for reminding me, ever so gently (or not) when i am starting to stray from the path.
