Quotes from HH Bhakti-Tirtha Swami (seminar in Croatia 2001)

HH Bhakti-tirtha Swami may give us a hint how everybody of us can contribute to Guru-Maharaja’s health recovery, does not matter in which part of the world we are. As we know, HH Bhakti-tirtha Swami had a strong bond of love with Guru-Maharaja.

Quotes from HH Bhakti-tirtha Swami (seminar in Croatia 2001) :

“. As the disciples become stronger, the spiritual masters become also stronger. Each of you wether you are initiated or not, you have a distinct influence on your gurus consciousness. It is like team work. A team is as strong as all of its players. So, as you do your service with care and devotion, you actually help to bring more strength and protection to your spiritual masters. As you allow yourself to become weak and deviant, then you make it more complex and difficult what the spiritual master has to do. According to the kind of potency he has and the kind of guru that your spiritual master is, it will also have an influence on how much he is able to deal with the negativity that you present or that you have. If the gurus capacity is not so strong and too many disciples are also deviant, then there will be trouble. If you engage in sins after you have made your vows, then it is as if you take a brick and throw him at his head. Because as you make such vows and you deviate it is like you are attacking your spiritual master. But the opposite is there also. As you do your services with devotion and care, then even though your guru is in the other part of the world you are sending him an exchange of love and protection.

Sometimes the spiritual master leaves the planet early according to his quality and sometimes according to the deviations of the disciples. Sometimes the spiritual masters body becomes very ill due to the deviations or sins of the disciples. ”

BTS 2005: ” The best way to keep anyone alive is by following their instructions and examplifying their teachings, not just individually but also as a community. ”

Kazakhstan Demolishes Devotee Homes

On Kazakhstan issue, we will be having having public demonstration at
Valluvar Kottam, Chennai on 3rd December 2006 between 4 & 5 p.m.
All devotees and well-wishers are welcome to participate and express
solidarity with the devotees in Kazakhstan.

The Kazakh government has demolished more than a dozen homes of Krishna devotees. This follows an earlier thwarted attempt in April 2006. Kazakh officials have claimed that the land was transferred against Kazakh law. ISKCON devotees claim that this is not true and that this is a case of religious discrimination.

Kazakhstan has recently worked at portraying itself as a place where religious tolerance is respected. At the same time it has been repeatedly criticised by groups such as Forum18, a Norwegian human rights organisation, and is under observation by the OSCE, a group Kazakhstan's President, Nursultan Nazarbayev, wants Kazakhstan to chair in 2009.

After the April attempt to evict devotes from their land, a government commission was set up to investigate the matter. According to Forum 18, there was a belief that this was merely to deflect criticism from the government during its Second Congress of Leaders of World and Traditional Religions.

Other groups claim to have suffered at the hands of the Kazakh government, including the Presbyterian Church, one of whose ministers was evicted from the country for “missionary activity without registration” shortly after being an official speaker at a state "Day of Spiritual Unity and Conciliation" ceremony, marking the official claim that "religious people and communities" have "full rights".

On 20 November at 6 am, orders were received for the devotees to demolish their homes or to have them demolished by the state at their expense. The next day, government demolitionists arrived.

By 23 November thirteen houses had been destroyed. The houses that weren't yet demolished have had their windows and window frames destroyed, making them uninhabitable in the freezing Kazakh winter.

In a phone call, the head of the committee investigating the issue, Amanbek Mukhashev, said "I know nothing about the demolition of the Hare Krishna homes – I'm on holiday. As soon as I return to work at the beginning of December we will officially announce the results of the Commission's investigation."

ISKCON's leader in Kazakhstan, Govinda Swami, who has attempted to raise international awareness of the problem said : "It is snowing in Kazakhstan and these folks are losing their homes. They entered one home where there was a woman with an infant and started destroying her home. We have been regularly told that the work of the commission is not finished and still they have attacked in this way." He said that it is "not a coincidence" that on 20 November his Kazakh visa expired "and on 21st they attacked".

Meanwhile, President Nazarbayev, is in England seeking economic investment for his country and was invited to officially open the London Stock Exchange.

In September, protests against Kazakhstan's treatment of ISKCON devotees were held in Washington DC. Following the recent demolitions, protests were quickly organised at the London Stock Exchange during President Nazarbayev's visit.

An “early day motion” was passed in the UK Parliament condemning “harassment of and discrimination against Hindu minorities in Kazakhstan”, noting that the Kazakh “Supreme Court reviewed two cases regarding Hindu cottages and ruled against the Hindus without inviting the plaintiffs to the hearings;” and called for President Nazarbayev “to intervene to stop action to demolish houses belonging to the followers of Hare Krishna, facilitate legal registration of properties owned by Hindus, allow Hindus to occupy their homes and worship freely.”

Miracle at Sridham Mayapur

From: raja gopal
Date: 09-Nov-2006 08:50
Subject: Re: Ayushhomam
To: G Premalatha

Dear Premabhakti:

Hare Krishna. AGSP. AGSGG.

Sorry for the belated response. We were running from pillor to post for treating Adithya who got injured due to chocklet bomb blast. Details you may find below.

Meanwhile, our heart felt blessings to your children and may Radha Madhav and Lord Narasimha Dev shower their fullest mercy on them.

The details of Adithya injury/treatment and the miracle:


Chakravarthy Raj aged 14 years s/o Radha Kanta Gopal Das and Padma Radhika DD got hurt due to cracker burst on Saturday 28 Oct 06. The cracker, a chocklet bomb, burst practically on his face. He was immediately rushed to the hospital and then to the eye/skin specialist.

Next day morning, Pankajangiri Prabhu, one of the head pujaris at Mayapur Chandrodaya Mandir, offered prayer to Lord Narasimha Dev for the speedy recovery of Chakravarthy Raj.

For the next 2 days he was just lying on bed without much movement and he could not even open his eyelids. He was then taken to an eye hospital at Barackpur (Disha Hospital) and they found out that the carina (the white portion of the eye) of both the eyes took the burn injury and that the pupil is saved. Hence, there was no problem in his eye sight and that a treatment of 15 days will make his carina cured.

He was then taken to Kolkata on 2nd November (6th day) for treatment to his facial injuries. The Doctors checked him right from day 1 said that he suffered a 2nd degree burn injury on his face. Even at Kolkata Hospital, they diagnosed the same thing and further suggested of going in for (1) facial dressing (2) chemical crafting after a fortnight and (3) then a plastic surgery after 6 months or 1 year.

THE MIRACLE : Finally, on 2nd Nov evening he was taken to the dressing room at Kolkata Hospital. Within 3 minutes, the people from the dressing room rushed out and took his parents in side. To their surprise, they saw Chakravarthy standing in the room and there was no mark of any injury on his face.

When asked for clarification, the Dr who started dressing him and the others present in that place could not give any valid reason. One of them said " eh tho Krishna ka chamatkar hai". When we wanted to pay the Doctor he said, " you are all coming from ISKCON Mayapur and I do not want any money".

All glories to Lord Narasimha Dev and all glories to Sri Sri Radha Madhav.

Who is Lord Krishna?

Who is Lord Krishna?

Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, is an historical person who appeared on this earth in India 5,000 years ago. He stayed on this earth for 125 years and played exactly like a human being, but His activities were unparalleled. His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada (08-29-05)

In these Western countries, when someone sees the cover of a book like Krsna, he immediately asks, "Who is Krishna? Who is the girl with Krishna?" etc.

The immediate answer is that Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead. How is that? Because He conforms in exact detail to descriptions of the Supreme Being, the Godhead. In other words, Krishna is the Godhead because He is all-attractive. Outside the principle of all-attraction, there is no meaning to the word Godhead. How is it one can be all-attractive? First of all, if one is very wealthy, if he has great riches, he becomes attractive to the people in general. Similarly, if someone is very powerful, he also becomes attractive, and if someone is very famous, he also becomes attractive, and if someone is very beautiful or wise or unattached to all kinds of possessions, he also becomes attractive. So from practical experience we can observe that one is attractive due to 1) wealth, 2) power, 3) fame, 4) beauty, 5) wisdom, and 6) renunciation. One who is in possession of all six of these opulences at the same time, who possesses them to an unlimited degree, is understood to be the Supreme Personality of Godhead. These opulences of the Godhead are delineated by Parasara Muni, a great Vedic authority.

We have seen many rich persons, many powerful persons, many famous persons, many beautiful persons, many learned and scholarly persons, and persons in the renounced order of life unattached to material possessions. But we have never seen any one person who is unlimitedly and simultaneously wealthy, powerful, famous, beautiful, wise and unattached, like Krishna, in the history of humanity. Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, is an historical person who appeared on this earth 5,000 years ago. He stayed on this earth for 125 years and played exactly like a human being, but His activities were unparalleled. From the very moment of His appearance to the moment of His disappearance, every one of His activities is unparalleled in the history of the world, and therefore anyone who knows what we mean by Godhead will accept Krishna as the Supreme Personality of Godhead. No one is equal to the Godhead, and no one is greater than Him. That is the import of the familiar saying, "God is great."

There are various classes of men in the world who speak of God in different ways, but according to Vedic literatures and according to the great acaryas, the authorized persons versed in the knowledge of God, in all ages, like acaryas Sankara, Ramanuja, Madhva, Visnusvami, Lord Caitanya and all their followers by disciplic succession, all unanimously agree that Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead. As far as we, the followers of Vedic civilization, are concerned, we accept the Vedic history of the whole universe, which consists of different planetary systems called Svargalokas, or the higher planetary system, Martyalokas, or the intermediary planetary system, and Patalalokas, or the lower planetary system. The modern historians of this earth cannot supply historical evidences of events that occurred before 5,000 years ago, and the anthropologists say that 40,000 years ago Homo sapiens had not appeared on this planet because evolution had not reached that point. But the Vedic histories, the Puranas and Mahabharata, relate human histories which extend millions and billions of years into the past.

For example, from these literatures we are given the histories of Krishna's appearances and disappearances millions and billions of years ago. In the Fourth Chapter of the Bhagavad-gita Krishna tells Arjuna that both He and Arjuna had had many births before and that He (Krishna) could remember all of them and that Arjuna could not. This illustrates the difference between the knowledge of Krishna and that of Arjuna. Arjuna might have been a very great warrior, a well-cultured member of the Kuru dynasty, but after all, he was an ordinary human being, whereas Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, is the possessor of unlimited knowledge. Because He possesses unlimited knowledge, Krishna has a memory that is boundless.

Krishna's knowledge is so perfect that He remembers all the incidents of His appearances some millions and billions of years in the past, but Arjuna's memory and knowledge are limited by time and space, for he is an ordinary human being. In the Fourth Chapter Krishna states that He can remember instructing the lessons of the Bhagavad-gita some millions of years ago to the sun-god, Vivasvan.

Nowadays it is the fashion of the atheistic class of men to try to become God by following some mystic process. Generally the atheists claim to be God by dint of their imagination or their meditational prowess. Krishna is not that kind of God. He does not become God by manufacturing some mystic process of meditation, nor does He become God by undergoing the severe austerities of the mystic yogic exercises. Properly speaking, He never becomes God because He is the Godhead in all circumstances.

Within the prison of His maternal uncle Kamsa, where His father and mother were confined, Krishna appeared outside His mother's body as the four-handed Visnu-Narayana. Then He turned Himself into a baby and told His father to carry Him to the house of Nanda Maharaja and his wife Yasoda. When Krishna was just a small baby the gigantic demoness Putana attempted to kill Him, but when He sucked her breast He pulled out her life. That is the difference between the real Godhead and a God manufactured in the mystic factory. Krishna had no chance to practice the mystic yoga process, yet He manifested Himself as the Supreme Personality of Godhead at every step, from infancy to childhood, from childhood to boyhood, and from boyhood to young manhood. In the book Krsna, all of His activities as a human being are described. Although Krishna plays like a human being, He always maintains His identity as the Supreme Personality of Godhead.

Since Krishna is all-attractive, one should know that all his desires should be focused on Krishna. In the Bhagavad-gita it is said that the individual person is the proprietor or master of the body but Krishna, who is the Supersoul present in everyone's heart, is the supreme proprietor and supreme master of each and every individual body. As such, if we concentrate our loving propensities upon Krishna only, then immediately universal love, unity and tranquillity will be automatically realized. When one waters the root of a tree, he automatically waters the branches, twigs, leaves and flowers; when one supplies food to the stomach through the mouth, he satisfies all the various parts of the body.

The art of focusing one's attention on the Supreme and giving one's love to Him is called Krishna consciousness. We have inaugurated the Krishna consciousness movement so that everyone can satisfy his propensity for loving others simply by directing his love towards Krishna. The whole world is very much anxious to satisfy the dormant propensity of love for others, but the inventions of various methods like socialism, communism, altruism, humanitarianism, nationalism, and whatever else may be manufactured for the peace and prosperity of the world, are all useless and frustrating because of our gross ignorance of the art of loving Krishna. Generally people think that by advancing the cause of moral principles and religious rites, they will be happy. Others may think that happiness can be achieved by economic development, and yet others think that simply by sense gratification they will be happy. But the real fact is that people can only be happy by loving Krishna.

Krishna can perfectly reciprocate one's loving propensities in different relationships called mellows or rasas. Basically there are twelve loving relationships. One can love Krishna as the supreme unknown, as the supreme master, the supreme friend, the supreme child, the supreme lover. These are the five basic love rasas. One can also love Krishna indirectly in seven different relationships, which are apparently different from the five primary relationships. All in all, however, if one simply reposes his dormant loving propensity in Krishna, then his life becomes successful. This is not a fiction but is a fact that can be realized by practical application. One can directly perceive the effects that love for Krishna has on his life.

In the Ninth Chapter of the Bhagavad-gita this science of Krishna consciousness is called the king of all knowledge, the king of all confidential things, and the supreme science of transcendental realization. Yet we can directly experience the results of this science of Krishna consciousness because it is very easy to practice and is very pleasurable. Whatever percentage of Krishna consciousness we can perform will become an eternal asset to our life, for it is imperishable in all circumstances. It has now been actually proved that today's confused and frustrated younger generation in the Western countries can directly perceive the results of channeling the loving propensity toward Krishna alone.

It is said that although one executes severe austerities, penances and sacrifices in his life, if he fails to awaken his dormant love for Krishna, then all his penances are to be considered useless. On the other hand, if one has awakened his dormant love for Krishna, then what is the use in executing austerities and penances unnecessarily?

The Krishna consciousness movement is the unique gift of Lord Caitanya to the fallen souls of this age. It is a very simple method which has actually been carried out during the last four years in the Western countries, and there is no doubt that this movement can satisfy the dormant loving propensities of humanity. The book Krsna is another presentation to help the Krishna consciousness movement in the Western world. This transcendental literature is published in two parts with profuse illustrations. People love to read various kinds of fiction to spend their time and energy. Now this tendency can be directed to Krishna. The result will be the imperishable satisfaction of the soul, both individually and collectively.

It is said in the Bhagavad-gita that even a little effort expended on the path of Krishna consciousness can save one from the greatest danger. Hundreds of thousands of examples can be cited of people who have escaped the greatest dangers of life due to a slight advancement in Krishna consciousness. We therefore request everyone to take advantage of this great transcendental literature. One will find that by reading one page after another, an immense treasure of knowledge in art, science, literature, philosophy and religion will be revealed, and ultimately, by reading this one book, Krsna, love of Godhead will fructify.

My grateful acknowledgment is due to Sriman George Harrison, now chanting Hare Krishna, for his liberal contribution of $19,000 to meet the entire cost of printing Krsna Book.. May Krishna bestow upon this nice boy further advancement in Krishna consciousness.

And at last my ever-willing blessings are bestowed upon Sriman Syamasundara dasa Adhikari, Sriman Brahmananda dasa Brahmacari, Sriman Hayagriva dasa Adhikari, Sriman Satsvarupa Adhikari, Srimati Devahuti-devi, Srimati Jadurani dasi, Sriman Muralidhara dasa Brahmacari, Sriman Bharadvaja dasa Adhikari and Sriman Pradyumna dasa Adhikari, etc., for their hard labor in different ways to make this publication a great success.

Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare.
Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare...!!!

A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada - Teacher Who Brought Lord Krishna's Message.

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
Founder Acarya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness

A brief history of Srila Prabhupada's life:

The Teacher Who Brought Lord Krishna's Message

The philosophy and culture of Krishna consciousness were brought to the West from India in 1965 by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.

Years earlier, Srila Prabhupada, as he is known, had retired from business and family life to devote himself to serving Krishna and spreading Krishna's message, as he had learned it from his own spiritual master. Srila Prabhupada had published three volumes of Krishna conscious literature, which he had translated from Sanskrit into English. And he started an English- language magazine, BACK TO GODHEAD. Now, at the age of sixty-nine, he received free passage on a freight ship and came to New York.

He was nearly penniless and had no friends or relatives in America. But, depending on Krishna, he chanted Hare Krishna in a public park and taught classes in a small store. Soon people took interest in what he had to say.

Srila Prabhupada's mission was to present Krishna's teachings as they are, without watering them down or compromising them to suit popular fashion. Wheter his message become popular or not, he was determined to give the genuine thing.

Did Srila Prabhupada think himself to be God? Never. He worked as a humble servant of God. Men who claim to be God, he said, are dogs.

Srila Prabhupada taught how to serve Krishna by his words and by the example of his life. In the early hours of the morning he would wake to write and translate, and during the day he would guide his students in devotional service. He lived and ate simply and slept only a few hours a night.

In twelve years, Srila Prabhupada nurtured his small group into a worldwide movement for spiritual culture and philosophical understanding. It came to be known as the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON). Before Srila Prabhupada passed away, in 1977, he wrote more than sixty books. The Bhaktivedanta Book Trust, which he founded, publishes these books in more than sixty languages.

The Books of Srila Prabhupada

Srila Prabhupada wrote over 50 volumes of transcendental literature. From original Sanskrit or Bengali texts, he would write word-for-word and complete translations for each verse and comment on the text in his famous Bhaktivedanta purports. He called these purports "My emotional ecstasies." In clear and lucid language, he exposed the foolishness of the modern materialistic society, which often acts no different than polished animals. But merely exposing the modern society was not his main purpose. He sincerely wished the best for all living entities. Therefore he presented the vast science of spiritual knowledge in such a manner that even any slightly intelligent person could understand the truth: We are eternally parts of Krishna; we are His eternal servants.
Srila Prabhupada's works include the Bhagavad-gita As It Is, Srimad Bhagavatam (12 Cantos), Caitanya-caritamrta (17 volumes), The Nectar of Devotion, Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Teachings of Lord Caitanya, The Teachings of Lord Kapila, The Teaching of Queen Kunti, Sri Isopanisad, The Nectar of Instruction, and dozens of smaller books.

Srila Prabhupada produced these books (excepting the original First Canto Bhagavatam) within a short span of 11 years, a superhuman feat unmatched in recorded history. Every day he would dictate the text, and later his devoted followers would type his recorded voice and edit the copies. Prabhupada slept only 3 hours a day and ate only a handful of food. The early morning hours, between 1:30 and 4:30 a.m., he would spend writing, and later in the day he would preach to all classes of people in public and in private. Even up to the day before his death, when his physical body was at its end, he was writing the final purports to his last book. By any calculation, he was an extraordinary person.

Here is what some scholars say about the Books of Srila Prabhupada

"In this beautiful translation, Srila Prabhupada has caught the deep devotional spirit of the Gita and has supplied the text with an elaborate commentary in the truly authentic tradition of Sri Krishna Caitanya, one of India's most important and influential saints."

Dr. J. Stillson Judah
Emeritus Professor of the History of Religions and
Director of the Library Graduate Theological Union,

"Bhagavad-gita As It Is is a deeply felt, powerfully conceived and beautifully explained work... I have never seen any other work on the Gita with such an important voice and style. It is a work of undoubted integrity... It will occupy a significant place in the intellectual ethical life of modern man for a long time to come."

Dr. S. Shukla
Assistant Professor of Linguistics
Georgetown University

"This definitive edition of the Gita is, due to the extensive purports, a storehouse of ancient Vedic wisdom, poetry, politics and history. It should serve as a useful textbook for students and reference book for scholars of religion, as well as a general introduction to Vedic culture in general, not only from a scholar's point of view, but from that of a lifelong practitioner. It is this sense of devotion which Srila Prabhupada has captured in his discussion of the verses and which other commentators have failed to reveal. For this reason, Bhagavad-gita As It Is is an essential work for understanding the Indian religious tradition."

Dr. David Herron
Department of Religion
Manhattan College

These are only a small sampling of the hundreds of favorable reviews the BBT has received from scholars all over the world.

A Pure Way of Life

All devotees of the Hare Krishna movement aim to strictly follow four rules, why?:
No Gambling
In Krishna consciousness, you're trying to purify your mind--to make it clear and steady for spiritual realization. But gambling makes the mind cloudy. It agitates the mind. You start thinking: What are my chances? How much could I walk off with? What could I do with my winnings? Even if you just play for the sake of playing, gambling pulls the mind away from thinking about the real purpose of life.
No Intoxicants
No drugs, no liquor, not even coffee, tea, or cigarettes. The world is already high enough--high on illusion, high on greed, high on false power and false ego. The devotee of Krishna wants to be thoughtful, sober.
Material substances like drugs are useless for spiritual realization. They can bend the mind, but they can't free it. They may take you up, but sooner or later they let you down.
The self within is by nature joyful. So we don't need any material stuff to *make* us happy. We just need to purify ourselves and uncover the happiness that's already there.
No Meat Eating
No meat, no fish, no eggs. Devotees of Krishna avoid needless violence. They see other creatures as spiritual living beings. Though these creatures may be less intelligent than we, they are also God's children, our brothers and sisters. So why should we kill them? If a child were to kill a less intelligent brother, do you think the father would be pleased?
By the subtle laws of karma, the suffering we cause others will come back looking for us.
By nature's arrangement we have plenty of fruits, vegetables, grains, milk products, and other innocent food. We should content ourselves with this and be happy.
No Illicit Sex
Everything has its place, and that includes sex. When sex takes place within marriage, and for the sake of having children, it's fine. You're accepting the pleasure, and you're accepting the responsibility.
Otherwise, sex brings about entanglement, exploitation, disappointment, and illusion. For spiritual advancement, you want to simplify your life and bring your mind and senses under your control. Being temperate about sex helps you.
