The Book Under My Pillow

rajavidya1.jpg

After more than a decade, a mysterious attachment to a certain book yields the sweetest fruit.

Srila Prabhupada said that if someone just holds one of his books about Krishna and appreciates it, without even buying it, that is enough to ensure that person a human form or higher in the next life. The power of Srila Prabhupada’s books has touched and changed forever many thousands of lives, including my own.

Visiting Trinidad with H.G. Deena Bandhu Prabhu

trinidad1.jpg

Trinidad is the southernmost island in the Caribbean and the fifth largest in the West Indies. In 1498 Christopher Columbus discovered this island in his third voyage, hence the name Trinidad. Through time the French, Dutch, and others have ruled the place and finally it ended up in British hands. Due to a shortage of labor, the British government sent Indian laborers, mostly from the Eastern part of India to work in the sugar cane plantations on the island.

Final Words of a Dying Father

dyingfather1.jpg

Every December, the book marathon promises to be an exciting event. While travelling from door to door, village to village, through remote parts of India, we invariably meet someone who has been miraculously touched by Krishna’s mercy. One such person was Chandu, whom we met in Srirampur, Maharashtra. His tall posture and heavy built contrasted with his soft, humble demeanor. Curious to know his background, I requested him to narrate his story of choosing the path of Krishna consciousness.

Lord Chaitanya makes the abominable age worshipable

lordcaitanyaccd.jpg

By Chaitanya Charan Das

The material world is like a jail; here we eternal joyful souls are sentenced to life in temporary miserable bodies. This jail becomes especially wretched in the present dark age of Kali because people live disharmoniously and incur grievous karmic reactions. The Puranas are replete with grim references to the miseries of Kali-yuga.

Yet Srimad Bhagavatam (11.5.36) sounds a dramatically different note, declaring this abominable age to be worshipable:

kalim sabhaajayanty aaryaa guna-jnah saara-bhaaginah

yatra sankirtanenaiva sarva svaartho 'bhilabhyate

“Those who are actually advanced in knowledge are able to appreciate the essential value of this age of Kali. Such enlightened persons worship Kali-yuga because in this fallen age all perfection of life can easily be achieved by the performance of sankirtana.”
