1. Servant of the servant of the servant

    “The more we become the servant of the servant of the servant, the more we become elevated in spiritual life. In material life we become masters of the masters. The difference is there is no struggle in becoming servant of the servant, but there is a great struggle to become master.” Quoted in the book “Yamuna Devi” Vol. […]
  2. Mass Movement as well as Class Movement

    Srila Prabhupada: Let them do whatever nonsense they are doing. Let them chant and take prasada. We don’t mind what they are doing. That is later on. When I was chanting in Tompkinson Park I never asked them, “Don’t come here. You are drinking.” Everyone was drinking. (laughs) I know that. Everyone had illicit sex. They were coming with […]
  3. Glories of the maha-mantra

    Vedic evidence is called sabda-brahma. The real essence of sabda-brahma is the chanting of the Hare Krsna mantra. By vibrating this transcendental sound, the meaning of everything, both material and spiritual, is revealed. This Hare Krsna is nondifferent from the Personality of Godhead. From Srila Prabhupada’s purport to SB 4.24.40
  4. Don’t be victimized by the Mayavadi so-called Vaisnava

    Caitanya Mahaprabhu has plainly warned that “Don’t go to Mayavadis.” Mayavadi-bhasya sunile haya sarva-nasa. Mayavadi haya krsne aparadhi. This is the statement of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. So you should be very, very careful. Don’t go to hear any Mayavadi. There are many Mayavadis in the dress of Vaisnavas. Sri Bhaktivinoda Thakura has explained about them, that ei ‘ta eka […]
  5. How a grhastha should fully engage in worshiping Krsna

    A grhastha should not be very much attached to his wife; he should engage even his own wife in serving a guest with all attention. Whatever money a grhastha accumulates by the grace of God he should spend in five activities, namely worshiping the Supreme Personality of Godhead, receiving Vaisnavas and saintly persons, distributing prasada to the general public […]
  6. Bhaktisiddhanta: “Preach, and money will come”

    Krsna will arrange for everything. My Guru Maharaja used to say that “You do not try to preach for getting some money. Money will come automatically. On your feet money will say, ‘Please accept me.'” You should preach very sincerely. That is your business. Never bother that “Where is money? Where is money, money, money?” From Srila Prabhupada’s lecture […]
  7. Not a single Christian

    “Why Christians are killing?” Anyone I raise this question, immediately he becomes stopped, mum, dumb. That’s all. Christian community, there are so many. Practically the majority of the human society, they are Christian. They are the persons who are indulging in killing. And where is Christian? Judging from the Ten Commandments, there is not a single Christian, not a single, […]
  8. What sannyasis renounce

    Sannyasa life is cent per cent no connection with woman. That is sannyasa. What have we renounced? We are using the motorcar, we are using this machine, we are eating, we are sleeping in a nice room — what is the renouncement? Only renouncement is no connection with woman. That is the real platform of renouncement. If one can […]
  9. Don’t complain about no kalpa-vrksas

    Although one may complain that no kalpa-vrksa, wish-fulfilling trees, exist there [Vrndavana], when the Six Gosvamis were there, kalpa-vrksa were present. It is not that one can simply go to such a tree and make demands; one must first become a devotee. The Gosvamis would live under a tree for one night only, and the trees would satisfy all […]
  10. Remembering Krsna by chanting

    Lord Krsna stresses the importance of remembering Him. One’s memory of Krsna is revived by chanting the maha-mantra, Hare Krsna. By this practice of chanting and hearing the sound vibration of the Supreme Lord, one’s ear, tongue and mind are engaged. This mystic meditation is very easy to practice, and it helps one attain the Supreme Lord. From Srila […]
