    Yesterday was appearance day of the dwarf incarnation of God, recounted in the 8th Canto of Shrimad Bhagavatam. In Prabhupada Village in North Carolina where I live, we also celebrated a grain ceremony, and one for indicating the tenancies of a child for Devavrata, the son of Mathura das and Citralekha. Theses "Lilas" or pastimes of the Lord are very instructive for us, and I thought how I might connect the special appearance day of the Lord, with the auspicious "samskara" (Vedic purifying...

    Who in the world do you think you are? Great question for all of us. To a large extent we are who we believe we are (we believe we are this body). If I think I am the president of the US, or I own the Bank of Whatever, or that I am good at math, that doesn’t make it true, yet there will be consequences for such a belief. If we feel we are stupid, or ugly or useless, that governs our life. People are expert at arguing for their limitations, or why they will never amount to anything, or why God...

    There are certainly more "countrified" places than we live in......I mean there is a "convenience/gas station/general/pay too much store" only 5 minutes away. However, if we want to get any "serious" supplies, it is a minimum of 30 minutes. That will get us to the nearest branch of the "evil empire" or Wal-Mart (it is cheaper, but I know well all the cons). To reach the health food store and others takes an hour. The point being that getting supplies is...

    In this tiny blog I can't do justice to the topic of Shri Radha , and I feel a bit naked without having all my Vedabases to quotes, my library of pictures, and the fact that I am using a Mac since my cheap PC crashed. I will try to point the way to your taking notice of this auspicious day, and reading up in our Gaudiya literature about Krishna's greatest devotee. And on this day know that to get Krishna's mercy we have to get the mercy of Radha. The guru is said to represent Nityananda or...
