Bound by Karma?

3 days, 17 hours ago by hps in Special Category A

Dandvat pranam Maharaj [HpSwami]). All glories to you and Srila Prabhupada.

By your blessings I sure will look forward for your guidance and association in our next birth on Nabadvipa dham.


You are just like light house in vast material ocean. A lighthouse guides ships in ocean, you are guiding me for safe and quick journey back to Krishna lok.


I was just talking to my sister Uttama-gopi devi dasi. She moved back to Bombay to look after my parents. She told me about HH Radhanath Maharaj and his conversation with great South Indian astrologer.


So far all of his predictions come true.


So Maharaj ask him to make prediction about Maharaj.


To that he responded nobody can predict about ISKCON's devotees. They are under direct care of Bhagavan Krishna.


For devotees Krishna decides. 

I thought I should share with you.


HpS-ASA 😐🐒🐒🦍 . 🐷

It certainly matches with my individual experience with devotees.


'diksa kale...' at time of Diksa, Durga passes the strings of our Karma to Radha.

So, our destiny in Guna-karma goes on in many ways just the same eg. You have same gender before and after the Svaha... but now Radha uses it in the Sankirtan Movement and to guide us to more advanced service!


OK 👍

Hare Krishna Gurumaharaj

Please accept my humble obeisances

All glories to Srila Prabhupad.


Just wanted to share with you this poem from Rumi. today while reading it, remembrance of you, your presence was perceived, as i was reading it to you.

Hope you like it.


Should everything pass away,

it couldn't happen without You [KRSNA] 🙂.

This heart of mine bears Your imprint;

it has nowhere else to turn.


The eye of intellect is drunk with You,

the wheeling galaxy is humble before You,

the ear of ecstasy is in Your hand;

nothing happens without You.


The soul is bubbling with You,

the heart imbibes You,

the intellect bellows in rapture;

nothing happens without You.


You, my grape wine [non-alcoholic] and my intoxication, 

my rose garden and my springtime,

my sleep and repose;

nothing happens without You.


You are my grandeur and glory,

you are my possessions and prosperity [one backpack etc],

you are my purest water;

nothing happens without You.


It is all Your being, Your gentle good faith or Your seemingly cruelty.

You are everything of mine;

no matter where You are going,

nothing happens without You.


[Siksastakam 8!]


They place their hearts with You,

and You break them;

they repent, You break them again.

You do all of this Yourself;

nothing happens without You.


Were something to happen without You, 

the world would be overturned. 

The Garden of Eden would turn to Hell;

nothing happens without You.


If You are a head, I'll become Your feet,

and if You are a fist, I'll become Your flag.

If You disappear, I'll turn to nothing;

nothing happens without You.


You've disturbed my sleep,

You've effaced my personality,

You've broken every attachment;

nothing happens without You.


Should You stop being my Beloved,

my affairs would be disastrous.

My Comforter, my dear Companion! 

Nothing happens without You.


Without You, life would not be delightful

nor death joyous;

how can I rebel against Your sorrow?

Nothing happens without You.


Whatever I say, O seal of judges,

all seemingly good and evil notwithstanding,

say it Yourself, by Your Grace; 

nothing happens without You.

Rumi


🐵 🐵 He is interesting person. Thank you. We will look for his biodata. Maybe he is in ISKCON now???!

Read through the biography on Wikipedia.

Seems lot of things unclear about him.

We are so lucky to be sitting at the feet of Srila Prabhupada with his books and examples fresh in first hand witnesses!

Yada Yada Hi Dharmasy... Krsna comes again and again!!

Thank you!

Best wishes in your complete purity of any selfish motives!!!

Respects to [?] Aniruddha Das and the devotees.

Hare Krishna Maharaja! Please accept my humble obeisances!


Thank you very much for the wonderful guidance. I was listening to the class this morning and all of a sudden a crazy thought came in my mind. As you had mentioned earlier, "only insane people have thoughts in their mind [head]" So, I'm sure it must be a crazy thought...


Is Mahabharata actually an allegorical story?

Dhritharashtra means someone who is holding on to the kingdom or throne.

Gandhari is considered to be the incarnation of Mati (intelligence).

The names of all the Kauravas mean some kind of devious political scheme.


So, is it an allegory of how a person who is blinded by his political ambition and who covers up his intelligence (blindfolded Gandhari) creates 100s of devious strategies (the Kauravas) to remain in power?


HpS - Krsna accomplishes many things at the same time.

The matches are certainly nice.

I take these things as useful, but look for confirmation of my hypothesis, in statements in the Sastras, as I am reading them in review.


Very nice analysis.

Srila P'pada says that Duryodhana was 'offense personified', no?

You do not need to have the app in order to watch it. Later it is going to be posted in YouTube


He asked me to bring his New cd to Houston nevertheless the cd was not ready yet by the time I arrived to Houston


His New CD is called Mahavisnu. It is really nice to witness how a devotee can do what he likes and at the same time preach.


See You in cyber space
