1. Why Krsna is called Mukunda

    Krsna is called Mukunda because as soon as one comes in constant touch with Krsna or sees Him in full Krsna consciousness, one immediately becomes freed from all material anxieties. Not only that, but one is immediately blessed with all spiritual bliss. From Srila Prabhupada’s Krsna Book, ch 58: Five Queens Married by Krsna.
  2. The living example of the gopis

    We shall think of Krishna, seeking His protection. The living example is the gopis. They were householder wives, young girls having children to feed, carrying out the order of superiors; father-in-law, mother-in-law, sister-in-law, satisfying the whims of the husband, executing so many household duties from morning to night. Still they practiced in such a way Krishna Consciousness that they did […]
  3. Spiritual method to get money

    If we are in spiritual strength, there will be no scarcity of money; and the spiritual strength is that each and every one of us must chant the sixteen rounds of beads and follow the rules and regulations with great adherence. (From Srila Prabhupada’s letter to Tamala Krishna — Los Angeles 8 February 1970)
  4. The Vraja-vasis love for Krsna

    The inhabitants of Vrndavana had sacrificed everything for Krsna, simply being captivated by the lotus eyes of the Lord. Because of their great desire to love Krsna, they never desired anything like elevation to the heavenly planets or merging into the effulgence of Brahman to become one with the Absolute Truth. They were not even interested in enjoying a […]
  5. Incest, cow slaughter, and the counteraction

    Prabhupada: They have got a band of female monkeys. And therefore it is sometimes chastised, “You are a monkey.” No sense. Band of females means there is his daughters also, sons also, and everything — family, mixed family — but he has no distinction between mother, brother. Monkeys and hogs and dogs, and human beings also are becoming. No […]
  6. A disciple glorifies Srila Prabhupada

    Devotee (6): Srila Prabhupada, I was noticing your Srimad-Bhagavatams the other day and Caitanya-caritamrta. So I would like to take my time this time and offer my obeisances for such perfected, exalted work from such an exalted personality. All glories to you. Prabhupada: Hare Krsna. [devotees offer obeisances] Thank you very much. Devotee (6): I haven’t seen anything […]
  7. Srila Prabhupada will not die

    Gargamuni: Any name we have in India, any good name we have, is due to you. Prabhupada: [laughing] It is due to Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Gosvami. Caitanya Mahaprabhu. Guru-krsna-krpaya paya bhakti-lata-bija [Cc. Madhya 19.151]. So you can give me massage. Thank you very much. Now you have got very, very great responsible work. I will die. You will live. […]
  8. Srila Prabhupada is more than Birla

    Prabhupada: When He sees, “That fool wants Me, at the same time, material world. So take his material possession, everything, so that he will want only Me, that’s all.” Actually, it was done to me. [laughs] I have got practical experience. I did not want to take sannyasa. I thought that I shall do business. And Krsna forced me […]
