Hare Krsna Gurudev, please accept my humble obeisances ____o_

All glories to Srila Prabhupada🌷

All glories to you🌼

Because of you, I begin to understand Srila Prabhupada's books. I remember hearing your classes for the first time and feeling how everything became to have sense and depth meaning.

Because of your effort to keep us busy in Krishna consciousness, to constantly inspire us, to be so exemplary and transparent is reason that I can make some advance in spiritual life.

Your words guide me through this vast philosophy, in which I would be lost if it weren't for the perspective you show us.

The power of your realizations give strength to my faith.

You are a living proof that this process is genuine and works. Your unconditional love, your patience and generosity feed my bhakti creeper, which struggles to grow in the middle of so many weeds.

I want to offer you my existence, I want to leave all selfishness, illusion and obstacles to be a useful particle in this great Sankirtan movement.







Your apprentice servant

P/D: Happy Birthday!!

HpS - Thank you. Trying to answer all the letters!! Thank you, but 90% of our potency is just the mercy of Srila Prabhupada to do something with bad tools! AgtSP~~~ You explain things in your circle now! "Yare dekha tare kaha..."

Por favor acepte mis humildes reverencias,

Todas las glorias a Srila Prabhupada,

Todas las glorias a Usted.

Gracias a usted es que pude comenzar a entender los libros de Srila Prabhupada. Recuerdo escuchar sus primeras clases y sentir como todo cobraba sentido y mayor profundidad. 

Gracias a su esfuerzo en mantenernos ocupados, en constantemente inspirarnos, en ser tan ejemplar y transparente, que yo puedo hacer algún avance. 

Sus palabras me van guiando en medio de esta filosofía tan vasta, en la cual estaría perdida si no fuera por la perspectiva que usted nos muestra. 

La potencia de sus realizaciones fortalecen mi fe.

Usted es la prueba viviente de que este proceso es genuino y funciona. Su amor incondicional, su paciencia y generosidad alimentan mi planta del bhakti, que lucha por crecer en medio de tantas malas hierbas.

Quiero ofrendarle mi existencia, Quiero desprenderme de todo el egoismo, de la ilusion y las trabas para ser una partícula útil en este gran movimiento de Sankirtan.

Su aprendiz de sirviente

Domestic life

2 weeks, 5 days ago by yajnasenidd in Other

Dear Maharaj,

Please accept my humble obeisances and all glories to Srila Prabhupada. Maharaj, my marriage was arranged by my Krsna conscious superiors. I experience frequent physical violence in this marriage for 2 years. Is it right for me to continue on like this?

Your aspiring servant,


HpS - ASA --- Hare Krsna! AGTSP paoho. Of course, this is a frequent encounter and yet one question is who is being violent. I knew one person very intimately who was never physically violent with his wife during marriage, but she bit him with intention to do physical damage two or three times.

Of course, it maybe the exact opposite with your situation. Maybe the husband is biting the wife.

Eventually she filed for divorce because she required him to eat meat with the family etc and he told her in strong terms that he would never do it.

Talking with him many years later he felt that she was actually a very nice person, but neither of them knew how to adjust the social situation back in 1974. At that time if you were a vegetarian in here common, family society it meant that you were probably a Communist or a Homosexual also!

Knowing what he knows now, he feels pretty certain he could have adjusted things.

Looking in our asa-encyclopedia we found the best source are the Verses and Purports starting with SB 7.11.25. They are fanstastic.

Please read and discuss them (with your other real advisors), and please give us some more thoughts on the matter.

"Time factor which combines all the physical elements"?

3 weeks, 2 days ago by mw1 in Other

Hare Krsna Maharaj,



I have a question from Krsna book, chapter title - 'The story of the Syamantaka Jewel'.

In the 16th paragraph,it is mentioned that - "Jamabavan continued:"My dear Lord, the time factor which combines all the physical elements is also Your representative.""

What does the statement -'time factor which combines all the physical elements' mean? how does time combine physical elements? Generally from what i have heard in modern science, time is a fourth dimension taken along with the 3 dimensions of space but have not heard anything relating to this statement.

Hare Krsna!

HpS - ASA - AgtSP    Very nice question but it will take some time to answer. Vedic view of nature is much more mature than Western science. Even Nobel Laureates like Charles Townes appreciate it.

Start with read through of Lord Brahma's explantion. Available at the following link. Then get back to us if you so please by your mercy.
