This year on the 5th of March 2015 is Lord Caitanyas appearance day. This is a talk by Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayana Maharaja. Given at Sri Keshavaji Gaudiya Matha, on the divine birthday of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu in Navadvipa, India: March 14, 2006 pm

After the completion of Lord Sri Krsna's pastimes in Vrndavana and Dvaraka in Dvarapa-Yuga, He was thinking very deeply. He considered, "I went to the material world and tasted the moods and relationships of dasya (servitude), sakhya (friendship), vatsalya (parental affection) and madhurya-rasa (conjugal love). Although I did so, however, I was not completely satisfied."

CAN YOU SHOW ME GOD?

Once, in India, there was a king who desired to see God. Calling for his chief minister, he asked, "Can you show me God? Can you clearly tell me what God is doing?" The minister, although highly learned, could not immediately think of an appropriate answer to the king's question, so he requested that the king grant him three days to determine a suitable reply. The king agreed but cautioned that an unsatisfactory answer would drastically reduce his faith in him as a minister. The minister returned to his residence and, with much intensity, researched all of the books in his library with the hope of finding an acceptable answer to the king's question.

WE ARE SIMPLY WASTING OUR TIME HERE

Prabhupada: Sa amrtatvaya kalpate [Bg. 2.15]. Amrtatva. Here, in this material world, we are put into mrtatva, subject to birth, death, old age and disease. But there is another position where there is no birth, death, old age and disease. So which position we should like — birth, death, old age and disease, or no birth, no death, no old age, no disease? Which one we should like?

WHY WE DONT EAT MEAT

Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


By A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

The Vaishnava philosophy teaches that we should not even kill plants unnecessarily. In the Bhagavad-gita (9.26) Krishna (God) says: "If someone offers Me with love and devotion a leaf, a flower, a fruit, or a little water, I will accept it." We offer Krishna only the kind of food He demands, and then we

The Peacocks Dance to Kṛṣṇa’s Flute Melody

After preparing lunch for Kṛṣṇacandra and Baladeva, Yaśodā along with Nanda Bābā follows Them for a great distance as They take the cows out to graze for the day. Finally, after bidding Them farewell for the day, they return home. After cooking for Kṛṣṇa, Śrīmatī Rādhikā and Her sakhīs return to Yāvaṭa. As Rādhikā’s sakhīs sit near Her, each of them in their own specific parties as taṭastha (neutral), svapakṣa (belonging to Rādhikā’a own group), and suhṛda (friendly), they all begin to meditate on Kṛṣṇa. They become deeply spellbound, and when He sometimes appears to their internal vision, they become enthralled in viraha-rasa. Seeing how Rādhikā is especially immersed in viraha-rasa and oblivious to all external considerations, the sakhīs call out to Her and bring even more remembrance of Kṛṣṇa’s pastimes to Her by speaking this verse:
