    “Crows are very intelligent,” the narrator was saying, on the PBS broadcast I’d accidentally turned on. The trouble with being in a place where there is a TV, and a satellite connection, is that there is always the chance that you will turn it on, and don’t you know that’s just exactly what I did the other day. Although I have read the verse from the Srimad-Bhagavatam comparing mundane literature of all varieties to ‘a place of pilgrimage for crows’, this was the first time I’d seen it come to...

    Shri Advaita Acharya is a very important person to understand in the Krishna consciousness movement. His appearance day is tomorrow, or on Saturday, February 16th, 2013.

He is one of our many superlative family members and spiritual superheroes! Before I briefly speak on this, I thought it would be important to...
