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 [...]

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 [...]
Once Srila Prabhupada was in discussion with a scientist who was averring that nature was the cause of all phenomena. “Why do you propose a God?” he asked. Prabhupada replied, “But when you say nature you must also say whose nature. It cannot exist independently” It is an interesting point. We all have different natures, [...]
This is a line from a song I listened to during my misspent youth. Indeed it is now clear that I not only had a misspent youth but unlimited misspent previous lives. I cannot really say for sure what the author of these lines intended them to mean but prior to me having the privilege [...]
As I was driving down an interstate road late one breezy spring night, I read a billboard signed by God. But I felt no tranquility, no joy. My lips grew so heavy I could not smile. I was gripped by a strange, suffocating unease. “DON’T MAKE ME COME DOWN THERE,” it angrily warned. The warmth [...]
I came across a beautiful simple story published sometime back in “Bhagavaddarshan” (BTG in Telugu- South Indian language). The name of the story was Father’s advice”. I sincerely think that it is very relevant to caring and gives inspiration to all readers about the present subject matter that is caring for devotees. The story as [...]
