One Life Is Just a Flash in Time
From time immemorial the living entity travels in the different species of life and the different planets, almost perpetually. This process is explained in Bhagavad-gita: under the spell of maya, everyone is wandering throughout the universe on the carriage of the body offered by the material energy. Materialistic life involves a series of actions and reactions. It is a

THE BENEFITS OF CHANTING HARE KRISHNA

 imagesFCG2IA6J

Dr. Daniel Coleman, associate editor of Psychology Today and author of The Varieties of Meditative Experiences, after studying the meditational techniques of members of the Krishna consciousness movement, said, "I found the Hare Krishna devotees to be well-integrated, friendly, and productive human beings. In a culture like ours, in which inner, spiritual development is almost totally neglected in favour of materialistic pursuits, we might have something to learn from their meditational practices."

Everyone knows that a happy life requires good health. Proper diet, adequate exercise, and sufficient rest are necessary to keep our bodies strong and fit. If we neglect these demands, our bodies become weakened and

Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


The American bicentennial was a great occasion for celebration. In March 1976, in Mayapur, India, the editors of Back to Godhead  conducted a special interview with Srila Prabhupada, who took a hard look at American slogans such as "All men are created equal," "In God we trust," and "One nation under God.

Back to Godhead: Thomas Jefferson put the basic philosophy of the American Revolution into the Declaration of Independence. The important men of the day who signed this document agreed that there are certain very obvious or self-evident truths, the first of which is that all men are created equal.

Which religion is that? You may ask, and rightly so. Most academic and news articles usually talk about the three monotheistic religions, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Even though these three religions share a common theological precept that there is one GOD ([1]El Kana) and no other, they are anything but unified in describing the path that the devotee



Whom Can You Trust?

By Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Maharaja

We trust various persons of authority to inform us about material subject matters, but whom shall we trust in regard to transcendental subject matters and the transcendental world? We cannot experience transcendence with any of our material senses. How then, can we have an idea of that pure reality? We can see the body, but not the soul. How can we verify that there is a soul beyond matter? Though God is everywhere, we don’t see Him. How then, can we determine who is God?



THE CONTRIBUTION OF SRILA BHAKTIVINODHA THAKURA

September 17, 2013 By Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja

The glories of Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura are so magnificant that even Lord Brahma, with his four mouths, cannot completely describe them. Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura was a transcendental personality and we are not transcendental, so how then can we touch them? Only a transcendental person can expound on his glories.

An exerpt from the booklet Beyond Birth And Death By Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

We are experiencing birth and death, but actually we are beyond birth and death. We are eternal spirit souls, but according to our work and desires, we are transmigrating from one body to another. This is the science of reincarnation.



REINCARNATION EXPLAINED

Srila Prabhupada

Srila Prabhupada

 

By Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
Remembrances of past lives can be fascinating, but the real goal of understanding reincarnation is to become free from the painful cycle of birth in death. In a lecture delivered in London in August of 1973, Śrīla Prabhupāda warns, "This is not a very good business—to die and take birth again. We know that when we die we'll have to enter again into the womb of a mother—and nowadays mothers are killing the children within the womb."
