1. Astika and nastika

    Astikyam means to believe in the injunction of the sastra, astikyam. That is called theism. One who does not believe in the injunction… Just like Krsna is advised in the Bhagavad-gita.

  2. Modern education and the doggish mentality

    Modern university education practically prepares one to acquire a doggish mentality with which to accept the service of a greater master.

    When the cow is dead, you dig, or put it within the…. Or take it. No, nobody will object. In India, that is the system. When the cow is dead, there is a class, they are called cobblers, camara. They are informed and they’ll come. They’ll take it. And they’ll eat the flesh and take […]
  7. First America, then the world

    If somehow or other we can convince the majority of the United States population to take to Krsna Consciousness then the whole world will become Krsna Conscious. This is a fact. The United States is the leader of all other nations. You simply educate the people in this Krsna Conscious philosophy and then there will […]
