" why not adopt austerity that provides permanent happiness?":

You have to purify your existence and your body. As many times as you accept a material body, you'll have to change it. But as soon as you get a spiritual body, there's no change. You already have a spiritual body. Now, because of our material contamination, we are developing the material body.

But if we get in touch with spiritual life, then we will develop a spiritual body. It is the same example I have given several times: if you put an iron bar in the fire, it becomes like fire. Similarly, if you are always busy in spiritual activities, your body will act spiritually, even if it is material. It's the same example: when an iron bar is red-Hot, everything it touches will burn it. Take the quality of the fire. In the same way, if you always keep yourself conscious of Krishna, you'll be espiritualizarás. You'll always act spiritually. There will be no more material requirements.

Srimad Bhagavatam 12.3.51in Mayapur on 17-02-2018. Kali-yuga is an ocean of faults but there is a great benediction given to the people of this age: the congregational chanting of the Holy Names of the Lord. There is no way to overestimate the potency of this Sankirtana-Yajna! The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Sri Krishna Bhagavan Himself descended on this planet as Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu to establish this Yuga Dharma which is available to all without limitation of sex, race, nationality,…See More

Srila Purushottama Dasa Thakura Appearance

Purushottama dasa Thakura   “The twenty-third and twenty fourth prominent devotees of Nityananda Prabhu were Sadasiva Kaviraja and his son Purusottama dasa, who was the tenth gopala. Since birth, Purusottama dasa Thakura was merged in the service of the lotus feet of Lord Nityananda Prabhu, and he always engaged in childish play with Lord Krsna.”- Krsnadasa Kaviraja Goswami “Sadasiva Kaviraja was greatly fortunate. His son was named Sri Purusottama dasa. Purusottama dasa Thakura had no concern…See More

Chintamani Goswami Maharaj said re poisoning; Hmm! Where on this entire earth did Srila Prabhupada asked anyone to give him medicine for him to die now? Why? How? This is completely bogus nonsense statement! Srila Prabhupada is an empowered pure representative of Krishna right from the spiritual world to come to continue the Parampara disciplic succession. Lord Krishna wanted to prove to the entire world that in any condition, He can use His devotees to disseminate His message, irrespective of…See More

Shivaratri

Shiva (Lord Shiva) + ratri (night), so Shivaratri means the night of Lord Shiva.

The ceremony takes place mainly at night, which is observed in the honour of Lord Shiva, who was married to Parvati (Mother Durga) on…See More
