    An interesting exercise for all of us is to think of ways that we remember, or could remember, Krishna, along with verses to support them. Krishna consciousness means, among other things, to remember and serve Krishna in love, so remembering Him is essential for those on the path of bhakti. A few blogs ago I spoke of seeing Krishna within everyone and everything and gave one example of thundershowers. Now I will further examine what I find of particular significance, relating it to Krishna. I...

    Regarding Shri Krishna Janmastami, or any appearance day of God, we could say that “God so loved the world, that He personally came to save us.” There are many resources on Krishna.com to help you understand the significance of this day even if you are born in India, and that is certainly true for those unfamiliar with the culture. Holidays used to mean Holy days, but now, at least in the West and in secular society, they often are just an excuse to not go to work. Never the less, Janmastami...
