How to Keep It Real in Spiritual Life

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…

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,…

Being a devotee in the Digital Age

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…

2016 in review

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…

Krishna's protection

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.

How a modern devotee keeps 4regs

So I have wanted to do this for awhile, and I hope other senior Godbrothers and Sisters do the same.   

Chanting 16 rounds is hard. I do about 4  when I wake, 5 on the way to work if I walk, two round each on my two breaks,…

Cancer, suffering and family

So my aunt succumbed to cancer. My cousin was there with her.  Her suffering ended, but ours hasn't.  I am angry, sad, and trying to be supportive for my cousin.

Brainwashing, women, and marriage

Ekadasi Day

Today is Ekadasi.  It is also the first day of school for local schools and OSU. It is also Truck Day at my job. So many distractions, But still, IT IS EKADASI!!!!  Remember Krishna. Having a wee bit hard time doing that, so came on here to remind myself: Krishna Krishna Krishna.  Have a good, non-grumpy fast everyone, or if it is already over for you, hope it was a non-grumpy fast lol.

Exploding Houses

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…

Thanksgiving

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.

Diwali

The story goes that Hanuman was sent by Rama to Ayodhya the day before Rama's arrival as prearranged with Bharat to let the residents of Ayodhya know how Sita and Rama and all Their retinue were returning. This was five days before Diwali, and after the Vijaya dasami (victory of Rama ) celebration. THE STORY BEHIND "DIWALI" King Dashrath ruled the rich and prosperous city of Ayodhya.

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
