    The Sadhu Sanga Retreat was really a treat for the heart. His Holiness Jayadvaita Swami started off the event on the first morning by giving us a clear understanding of what the word sanga is all about. It is association, but not superficial association. It is just like a scientist's convention where they gather together and share their realizations, devotees similarly gather to hear and chant about Krishna, that is sanga, association. The retreat was set in the beautiful town of Wimberley,...

    It's cold and wintry in most of Australia's southern states. What better way to warm yourself up this season than with a cookery adventure 'far from the madding crowd'. Some places still remain for this great retreat to be held a little less than three weeks from now. For those of you that haven't heard of this event, Krishna Valley is in country Victoria, surrounded by State Forest. And if you don't know your geography, the 200 acres of beautiful rolling countryside is a couple hours outside...

    Every morning I do the puja to my household arca-vigraha, Lakshmi-Narasimha. I like to offer a variety of seasonal fresh flowers and sometimes ripe fruit from my garden. In this month of July in England it is described as summer, although it is cool and raining quite a bit. But there is still a great variety of flowers available. And my raspberries have been ripe for two or three weeks and the blueberries are just about ready. Here are some photographs of this morning’s altar: Here are...

    (this blog is recorded on the full page: quick time player needed) After setting the mood with six verses and excerpts from Shrila Prabhupada’s purports in part one, in the next two blogs, I will do my best to unpack some of those ideas through appropriate stories from the Shrimad Bhagavatam. The foundational understanding to gain the most from this, or any Krishna centered talk or writing, is that our lasting identity is spiritual—we are eternal awareness, or a particle of consciousness...
