    I read today about the spiritual lamentation of Krishna’s dear devotees, the cowherd girls or gopis who felt their misfortune at being apart from Krishna. This brought to mind the lives of other great devotees who act as teachers or gurus who lament their "fallen condition" and forgetfulness of Krishna, while also aspiring for spiritual perfection. Lord Chaitanya's own prayers also express this. We can follow their example by also lamenting our fallen condition—which means knowing what we don’...

    Dates seem irrelevant words can be cliché are old days good or memory just selective? The past is useful if it helps to avoid mistakes, by recognizing opportunities-- a good teacher the past but a lousy residence!

    The songs of our great teachers (acharyas) instruct us about the character of those absorbed in transcendence. Thus we get a glimpse of their spiritual, compassionate vision--we can thus imagine what it must be like, and try to enter into it according to our capacity. They desire that everyone be overcome with the bliss of chanting the holy name of Krishna. This is true enlightened welfare work. Seeing the Universe's inhabitants as illusioned by the false promise of material enjoyment, Shrila...
