One of Srila Prabhupada’s repeated instructions to his followers was to read his books. And we can see practically that the more our devotees study Srila Prabhupada’s books while practicing the process of Krishna consciousness, the more they develop enthusiasm to preach Krishna consciousness. Most of our devotees study Srila Prabhupada’s books nicely when they are helped through some study program or course. Continue reading

The glorious life of Aindra Prabhu personifies determination and devotion, all aimed exclusively for the pleasure of Sri Sri Radha Shyamasundara. His heart floods like the Yamuna while being inundated by the monsoon of Srila Prabhupada’s Divine Grace. His love for Vrindaban is the life of his soul. Continue reading

Many know him as King of Kirtans but very few know he had immense love for deity worship. The reason why he could put deep impressions in everyone’s heart was because of his eternal loving service to his silas and Sri Sri Radha Shyamsunder…
Undoubtedly all the gopis, cowherd boys, cows and everyone else who served Krishna in Vrindavana with love and affection were liberated from the miserable condition of material existence.
— Krishna Book
If one attains perfection in Deity worship, that is called Arcana Siddhi. Arcana Siddhi means simply by Deity worship one goes back to Godhead, immediately after this life.
— Srila Prabhupada, Letter, 18 March, 1969

Please remember and I beseech you again and again, please remember, world wide ISKCON grassroots Nama Sankirtan revolution. Revolution means revolution. It means we have to shed pounds, and gallons and gallons of blood to get the job done. We have to turn this movement inside out, upside down whatever we have to do but we have to put Nama Sankirtan back into its rightful place of dignity in the forefront of our movement. It is absolutely essential and proper growth of our movement. Those who understood this, are awake in the need of the hour and those who haven’t understood this, are still sleeping.
It’s time to wake up and understand what is the responsibility of every man, woman and child in this movement, to take seriously that dharma when Lord Caitanya himself inaugurated for the deliverance for all fallen conditioned souls for the rest of the Kali Yuga. There is another 427,000 years left in Kali Yuga. And the Yuga dharma doesn’t change. The next yuga is Satya Yuga where contemplated peaceful meditation is where it stands. Continue reading

TRANSLATION And so, O Brahmana Vyasadeva, in due course of time I, who was fully absorbed in thinking of Krsna and who therefore had no attachments, being completely freed from all material taints, met with death, as lightning and illumination occur simultaneously. Continue reading

PENANG, MALAYSIA – When I was studying in Vrndavana VIHE in 2001, everyday I used to pray to Lord on how to make spiritual progress quickly. I wanted lots of mercy because I knew I am very fallen and in need of great mercy.
Then just one day before the Damodara month started, I was seated at the Bhagavatam class near Gaura Nitai Deities. Someone was giving class that day. At the end of the class, HDG Aindra Prabhu appeared and sat at the pillar opposite me and looked directly at me. Continue reading

KUALA LUMPUR – Last night about 400 devotees were at the temple to greet Lord Jagannatha, Who returned from the 6 hour Ratha yatra at 10pm. The kirtan was so jubilant, devotees dancing together in several clusters across the temple floor. They were spinning, dancing in circles, moving in and out of the center raising their hands, and going nuts. One turning circle of devotees (joined by holding hands) surrounded another circle going the opposite direction. Both went faster and faster until the spin force broke them apart. Continue reading

CAMERON HIGHLANDS, MALAYSIA – For the first time, a Ratha Yatra or Chariot Festival was held in Cameron Highlands. Malaysia’s largest and best-known hill resort, once the retreat of 19th century British settlers and today easily reached by road from Kuala Lumpur. Here, a mile above sea-level, stretch the cool rolling vistas of Malaysia’s green bowl, whose fruits and vegetables feed the nation’s cities. It has a charm of its own with its Tudor architecture style buildings, strawberry farms, vegetable markets, fresh flowers, tea plantation with its soothing greenery and breathtaking scenery.
