By Praghosa dasa. I remember the first time I read the Bhagavad-Gita and specifically from when Arjuna first speaks in chapter 1 verse 21 and even more particularly from verse 28 up to when Krishna utters His immortal words in verse 11 of chapter 2, by the time Krishna had sung those words, I had […]
So therefore the real thing is that everything belongs to Krsna. We are artificially enjoying the stolen property. Therefore if you go on enjoying like that, then this frustration will come. But before coming to that frustration, if we return this property to Krsna, then we become happy. So best thing is to return everything […]
Recently, a devotee shared their perspective on the perpetual “fall of the jiva” question. The devotee’s position is this: the Bhagavada Gita says once we go back to Godhead we never return, their Guru confirms this, and those who disagree are guilty of philosophical deviation. I had previously formed my own opinion about the jiva […]
So Narayana is so kind that consciously or unconsciously, if you chant the holy name of the Lord, it goes to your credit. Just like sometimes when you walk in the street, people say “Hare Krsna!” So this is also going to their credit. When they offer their respect to a Vaisnava, that goes to […]
Eminent scholars, scientists and philosophers have recognised the profound wisdom that the Bhagavad-gita offers. Gandhi once commented, “When doubts haunt me, when disappointments stare me in the face, and I see not one ray of hope on the horizon, I turn to Bhagavad-gita and find a verse to comfort me. I immediately begin to smile […]
As George Orwell famously said in his novel ‘1984’, “Big Brother is watching you.” Well, not any more. Now we’re watching Big Brother. Over six million people in the UK alone tune in to the “reality” TV show to watch others eat, sleep and largely fight with each other. That number spiraled skyward last month […]
Life in this world is very calculative. Before we give something we calculate what we’ll get back. Before we take a risk we calculate what we could lose. Before we invest in a relationship we calculate what benefits it will bring us. Before we extend ourselves for someone else we calculate how worthy they are […]
While our acaryas glorify the exemplary personalities from scripture famed for their successful or failed attempt—Junior Haridasa’s suicide after disappointing Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, Sati’s suicide due to the dishonor shown her husband, and Raghunatha Dasa Goswami’s repeated attempts at suicide due to being unable to bear the pain of separation from Lord Caitanya—they are rare […]
While the sastric conclusions about homosexuality are eternal truths and the ultimate source of our knowledge, it is clear that some have difficulty applying this knowledge to their daily lives, and others also experience difficulty understanding it in a practical and compassionate way. The GBC recognizes these challenges, and suggests that rather than trying to […]
To contemplate death is actually a requirement to being considered sane. There are a few REAL problems in this world; situations that NOBODY wants, but situations that EVERYONE will experience. The Bhagavad-gita outlines those real problems as disease, old age, and ultimately death. People in Latin America would hang skulls in their houses to remind […]
