The Missing Link…The Follow Up and Character Cultivation Part 2

The follow up is certainly an art, to package and tailor the Vedic siddanta according to the individual, to provide a user friendly medium where one can feel comfortable to approach Krsna Consciousness at a personal pace. People will become inspired by the individual and in the right atmosphere they will be the ones to mark the necessary changes in their life. The main encouraging theme is to just add Krsna. Interestingly enough in...

Book Distribution from Mumbai

"We Just can't do it!!" Bhakta Parimal rejected the proposal. As they turned to me, I flustered, "Well..er..mm, I mean" I was not sure myself. Vitthaldeva Prabhu insisted, "Prabhus, this is the best time to do it. Let's just go for it". We had our apprehension, although we knew it wasn't a bad idea after all. We wondered how the crazy Mumbaiites would react. Will the people appreciate our...

Time Bombs

TIME BOMBS Srila Prabhupada called his books, "time bombs." The people buy them, and in due course of time, they explode. 20 years ago, Mr. Ragbir Singh, a current aspiring disciple of His Holiness Bhakti Caru Swami, was walking casually down Oxford Street in London. All of a sudden, a charming Western lady dressed in a sari approached him and gave him a "Sri Isopanisad" in exchange for a donation. Mr. Singh never...

Tranad api

For the past few months I've been doing sankirtan in Japan. One day I wanted to call my mother in Europe but I had some difficulties with connection. So I called some technical service for help. On the other side answered one young man. I tried to explain to him the problem but he kept saying that this card is not offering me a live operator. I just wanted some advice from him about why the day before Ihad connected to America...
