    I have been a late bloomer my whole life, and yet time sometimes comes to my aid to teach me lessons that only are understood years later. A 19 ½ as a young brahmacari, we learned that “sleep was death” and was a waste of time, so if Prabhupada recommended 6 hours for those in the mood of goodness, then surely we should lessen that. Thus, we experimented pushing the envelope back to 5½ to 5 hours etc. For a while, when I was a pujari in the old San Francisco, Valentia Street, temple, in the...

    The irony doesn’t escape me that I couldn’t leave Vrindavana even if I wanted to. I ponder my life. So many devotees want to visit and here I’m on an extended stay first for 11 months and now 5 more. I know it is special mercy for me yet, it is the toughest love ever though I can still smile at my plight.

    By Candramauli Swami After a weekend filled with programs I left Charlotte NC by car for Apex NC for a quick visit to the home of Karuna Sindhu and his good wife Arcana Siddhi. It was the last days of the Kartik month and so my hosts decided to invite many of the local devotees for an evening of singing the Damodarastakam prayer. Naturally in association with the devotees the gathering transformed into a full program of Kirtan and a talk. I had planned an early rest but was now speaking the...

    [reposted from 12-24-16 and revised 7-3-18] Who are we really— beyond who we settle for without thinking too deeply as most just blindly accept as normal, conventional identities that we’ve learned from others and from our educational system so it must be true, right? Is it really a fact that we’re our past sad or happy history? What about our genes, race, ethnicity, our skin color, occupation, economic status, religious institution, sect, or sanga, state or region, political party,...
