Battlefield Bajans

My friend Partha-sarathi dasa is a devotee of Lord Krishna. He also happens to be a soldier in Iraq.

He has taught me that regardless of our situation, or of the political or economic environment we are in it is the consciousness with which you face your karma that matters. Your Krishna Consciousness that is!

Steer Your Thinking Back To The Sound



Some wise words from the Japa Reform Notebook about our duty to bring our mind back to the sound vibration of the Hare Krsna mantra

What if you think of the day’s devotional service when chanting your rounds? It is not so easy to stop the flow of our thoughts. So better you are thinking of devotional service than maya. But as far as possible try to steer your thinking back to the sound vibration of the holy name. Then after such absorption in chanting you can go forth to your day’s activities in the best condition.

Barsana Eye Camp

Barsana Eye Camp is the free annual cataract surgery camp run by the Bhaktivedanta Hospital in Barsana, Mathura District in India. The camp serves people residing in Barsana and the surrounding 120 villages, who due to extreme poverty and lack of medical facilities often lead a life of blindness caused by cataracts which are otherwise easily treated.

Limitless Kṛṣṇa

In our regular monthly program, one of the guests asked me ‘Why do you call God as Kṛṣṇa? Why not just refer it as God?’ He also took exception to the title of the lecture ‘Who is God?’ He preferred ‘What is God?’ And he said he will read the book he bought substituting ‘God’ for ‘Kṛṣṇa’.

Q: Can someone attain God without the institution of religion?

A: I would approach it in a different way. If someone desires to love God, he will naturally seek the association of others who also desire to love God. You develop compassion, as your love of God is developing, because you want to love others. When we reach the stage you want to help other people, you naturally organize. Ultimately to love God, you just have to love God. It is not some commandment is coming down from the sky, “Thou shalt join an institution.” “The community of the wise, is the welfare of the world.” For me it is just a practical thing, we have to organize.
