    SB 1.5.40: Please, therefore, describe the Almighty Lord's activities which you have learned by your vast knowledge of the Vedas, for that will satisfy the hankerings of great learned men and at the same time mitigate the miseries of the masses of common people who are always suffering from material pangs. Indeed, there is no other way to get out of such miseries. 1.6.36: O VyAsadeva, you are freed from all sins. Thus I have explained my birth and activities for self-realization, as you asked....

Wednesday, February 8th will be the observance of Lord Nityananda’s holy appearance day. I was blessed in 2011 to be able to give class to the devotees on that day.

    There is no perfect time or place, so if we wait, we will never accomplish, or sing the song which vibrates our heart meant to nourish every cell in our body.
