From a layman’s point of view, the Vedic culture may seem to delineate quite conservative social boundaries for women. Some may call this restriction, oppression, even subjugation, but one could also see it as a symbol of respect. The woman plays one of the most important roles in society. They are giving birth to and […]
By Indra Krishna Dasa How we can give our work meaning beyond the paycheck. The hot, sweltering Dubai sun is raining fire. At temperatures close to 50˚ C (122˚ F), it takes more than a man to be out in the open. The cacophony of sounds from the grinding machines, the transformers, the air compressors, […]
People commonly misunderstand Hinduism to be a polytheistic tradition. This became quite apparent when I recently facilitated a discussion at Leicester University entitled ‘Misconceptions of Hinduism’. Ironically, the word Hindu is itself a misnomer. It’s not mentioned anywhere in the Bhagavad-gita (the principle scripture for Hindu’s) or any other Vedic scripture for that matter. For […]
Sutapa das: The shrine at our temple is undoubtedly the main attraction. In dialogues with those from Judeo-Christian or Islamic backgrounds, I regularly encounter some uneasiness as to how God can appear in a ‘material’ form – idols made by the hands of man. It appears limiting, imaginary and almost childish – to treat God […]
I read this curious article about how some people have become seriously depressed after watching the movie Avatar. Not because it didn’t make them happy seeing the world portrayed in the film, but because the real world seemed so grey and lifeless afterwards.

An Address by Giriraj Swami to Leaders of Hindu Organizations October 23, 2009 Houston This year, Gita Jayanti, the day on which Lord Krsna spoke the Bhagavad-gita to Arjuna, will be celebrated on November 28. The Bhagavad-gita is also known as the Gitopanisad and is considered one of the Upanisads. The title Bhagavad-gita is sometimes […]
By Krishna Dharma das If we have to take birth again in this world there are some places we might prefer over others. Ireland, for example, would be a good choice. In that fine land abortion is mostly illegal, giving you a fair chance of emerging from the womb in one piece. But not everyone […]
By Sivarama Swami First meetings I first met my spiritual master on March 6th 1975 in Dallas Texas. Srila Prabhupada had just been in South America and had toured the Southern United States. I was on travelling book distribution with a sankirtan party and had strayed quite a distance from Montreal my home base. While […]
By Krishna Dharma Bad Karma For The England Coach: On January 30 this year (1999), Britain woke up to an unusual headline in the news. “Hoddle says disabled are paying for sins of previous life,” announced the more serious press, while the tabloids went for variations of “Hoddle goes mad.” The story had made headlines […]
Our Quest For Happiness Do you sometimes feel that no matter how hard you try you just cannot find fulfilment? That despite your best efforts to be happy you somehow end up suffering? Does it sometimes seem that everyone is enjoying life except you? All those films and magazines depicting happy lifestyles you can’t seem […]
