My friend Partha-sarathi dasa is a devotee of Lord Krishna. He also happens to be a soldier in Iraq.
He has taught me that regardless of our situation, or of the political or economic environment we are in it is the consciousness with which you face your karma that matters. Your Krishna Consciousness that is!
Partha-sarathi now has his own blog where he has posted some stories and photo's of his recent activities. He calls his blog "Battlefield Bhajans."

Krishna’s kitchen caters for the festivals and other events held throughout the year such as Janmasthami and Gaura...
I really like books, no I mean really. ( and I mean really-really)
I have books everywhere, just in case there is a moment to read one of them. There are books in almost every room - just in case. There are even some in the hall. Well there’s a bookshelf there. That’s not strange is it? You have to put bookshelves in the hall when you already have bookshelves in the other rooms.
I find it a practical thing. I like to read books and I like it a lot so if I’m passing by the hall or I am near the...
Here in Sydney, Australia the Roman Catholic Church has borrowed the city from Sydneysiders to put on a week long spiritual pilgrimage they call World Youth Day. In a strange way it was like having 100,000 devotees come to town.

4-Day Countdown: Why Krishna Appears
Humans (at least us reasonable ones) crave reasons: "Why did the chicken cross the road? Why is the sky blue? Why is there air?."
Our questioning spirit manifests early:
Time for bed, honey.
It's eight o'clock.
Why do I have to go to bed at eight o'clock?
Because I said so.
Because I'm your mother.
Because I gave birth to you.
Time for bed...
