    Mon, 09/17/2007 - 04:56 — NityānandaChandra This year's Janmastami was absolutely wonderful. For first time ever in Dallas we had some of the Gopis accompany Krishna on the altar. For the 4:30 am artik both Radha and Kalachandji were stunning. Kalachandji wearing His fancy turban and Radharani was there giving out blessing for all who came to see her beloved, Sri Krishna, on His most wonderful appearance day. The devotee danced ecstatically for the pleasure of Their Lordships, led in a...

    Blogging on Krishna.com is new, and is now in the experimental stage. For me it is a real privilege for so many reasons. I truly love the process of writing, and to have an audience (especially one of spiritual seekers and devotees), is a real dream come true. I have many ideas of topics and also for format. One of the readers of my bio expressed that she didn't have such courage to share her personal story. I do understand that, yet I would like to say to all our registered users, that it is...

    No it is not a new dance step, but a process. I first heard the term from a devotee scholar who used the term to indicate the process of taking the best from any situation--in his case his educational pursuits. Prabhupada gives the example of the swan that can draw out the milk from a mixture of milk and water. We have to look for the nectar or the essence which can be used for Krishna's service. A famous quote in Prabhupada's purport from the first Canto of the Bhagavatam [1.5.11] gives the...

    I believe John Lennon said that, though I think Prabhupada would approve of that sentiment. He often spoke of the folly of the materialist plan makers. Of course I also subscribe that to the saying that "those who fail to plan, are planning to fail". That means that we all have to chart a direction toward goals, otherwise we are adrift, like a ship without a rudder. (this could be a big topic for another time) In Prabhupada's life he was very focused on making plans, yet he always looked for...
