    On this day, Shri Janmastami 2018, I thought I would repost my very first blog (with a few updates from 9-11-07) on Krishna.com from 11 years ago, as today is a busy day for me on this auspicious day of celebration of the Lord's appearance in the world,and in a personal way, the Lord's appearance in our lives! May today, or whenever you read this, be a blessed, spiritually surcharged day. For many Hindu's and all Vaishnavas Janmastami is one of the most important holy days. The "birth" of the...

    [Reprinted from August 5th, 2009] Today, Saturday August 25th, is the auspicious celebration of the appearance day of Lord Balarama or Baladeva. As Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Balarama is similarly understood. He is the first expansion of Krishna from which many other expansions emanate, such as the 3 Vishnus and Lord Ananta-sesha. The "tattva" or truth of Balarama is very deep and I will only touch on a little of the ocean of who he is philosophically to give you a...

    I have written so much about writing because it has helped me greatly in my development as a person and devotee.

I rarely took time to think or ponder the deeper questions of life—or my life—growing up, and didn’t begin in earnest till my existential crisis between 18 and 19. Then, after taking up the life of bhakti at 19 ½ I went back to my old pattern of not thinking or reflecting about myself...

    Hare Kṛṣṇa, Mataji. Dandavat pranams. All glories to Srila Prabhupada! In prison my Kṛṣṇa consciousness has been truly "hands on" (isn’t it always? ). Sri Kṛṣṇa knows best and is always testing and strengthening His bhaktas. I truly feel that He has been especially and specifically helping me for the past twenty-six months I have spent in prison. I am a Naturopathic Physician and Ayurvedic Medical Consultant in my professional life and was brought here because of immigration issues with some...
