1. Brain-dead

    Srila Prabhupada pronounced that because of so much sex indulgence in our previous lives, we had become physically and mentally zero with no brains. Our only hope was Krsna consciousness, which was beyond any mental and physical considerations. From TKG’s Diary
  2. Six signs of love in Vedic civilization

    Love means six symptoms. I give you something, you give me something. I give you something for eating, you also give me something for eating. Dadati pratigrhnati bhunkte bhojayate caiva guhyam akhyati prcchati. If I am in trouble, I express my mind, I open my mind before you, and you also try to help me. These are the six […]
  3. Demons

    The demoniac are engaged in activities that will lead the world to destruction. The Lord states here that they are less intelligent. The materialists, who have no concept of God, think that they are advancing. But, according to Bhagavad-gita, they are unintelligent and devoid of all sense. They try to enjoy this material world to the utmost limit and therefore […]
  4. Simple life and chant Hare Krsna

    The policy should be that you should be self-sufficient and save time for advancing in Krsna consciousness. That is wanted. Yavad-artha prayojanam. Yuktahara-viharasya yogo bhavati siddhi-ha [Bg. 6.17]. You shall eat whatever you require for proper upkeep of the body, not eating too much and sleeping whole day. Don’t do that. Eat only what is absolutely necessary. Then you’ll never […]
  5. Voters: politicians will disappoint you

    The completely bewildered material civilization is wrongly directed towards the fulfillment of desires in sense gratification. In such civilization, in all spheres of life, the ultimate end is sense gratification. In politics, social service, altruism, philanthropy and ultimately in religion or even in salvation, the very same tint of sense gratification is ever-increasingly predominant. In the political field the leaders […]
  6. Srila Prabhupada Speaks to TKG

    Sometimes Prabhupada would be talking and I would say,  “I know, I know.” I would almost cut off Prabhupada.  And then Srila Prabhupada would say, “Yes you know, you know everything but you don’t know what I am saying, so why don’t you just listen?” From a lecture by TKG
  7. Same old thing

    So our Krsna consciousness movement is very simple. We haven’t got to manufacture anything, any philosophy, by research work. Krsna says, yogah proktah puratanah [Bg. 4.3]. We have to speak the same thing. The most…, very, very old: puratanah. We haven’t got to manufacture it. Nowadays we have advanced in education and civilization; therefore we have to concoct some idea. […]
  8. Formidable enemies of devotees

    A devotee’s most formidable enemy is association with women in an enjoying spirit. Association with nondevotees is also condemned because it is also a formidable enemy on the path of devotional service. One has to fully surrender unto the lotus feet of Krsna and give up attraction for women and nondevotees. From the introduction to Cc Madhya 22: […]
  9. Study Srimad-Bhagavatam very carefully

    If you simply learn Srimad-Bhagavatam, you get so much knowledge how things are developing, how tongue is developing, how the taste is developing, how touch is developing, how fire is working, how heat is working; from the interaction of heat and touch, how things are devel… Everything is explained there. Physical and spiritual, everything is there. So this is bhagavata-dharma, […]
