1. Govardhana-lila

    The Lord descends to this mortal world to show His pastimes in Vrndavana, which are full of happiness. When Lord Sri Krsna was in Vrndavana, His activities with His cowherd boyfriends, with His damsel friends, with the other inhabitants of Vrndavana and with the cows were all full of happiness. The total population of Vrndavana knew nothing but Krsna. […]
  2. Create Vrndavana (in Hawaii)

    Create Vrndavana. Keep Krsna here, cows here, calves here; produce your own food. It will become Vrndavana. This is Vrndavana. Where there is Krsna, where there are cows, where there is agriculture, that is Vrndavana. See the life of Krsna. He advised His father to worship Govardhana Hill. He said, “My dear father, Govardhana Hill is giving grass to […]
  3. How to always live in Vrndavana

    When one’s mind does not accept and reject but simply becomes fixed on the lotus feet of Krsna, then one’s mind becomes as good as Vrndavana. Wherever Krsna is, there also are Srimati Radharani, the gopis, the cowherd boys and all the other inhabitants of Vrndavana. Thus as soon as one fixes Krsna in his […]
  4. Hearing about Krsna’s childhood activities

    All the various activities exhibited by the incarnations of the Supreme Personality of Godhead are certainly pleasing to the ear and to the mind. Simply by one’s hearing of these activities, the dirty things in one’s mind immediately vanish. Generally we are reluctant to hear about the activities of the Lord, but Krsna’s childhood activities are so attractive that […]
  5. Sukadeva Goswami praises Mother Yasoda

    O Maharaja Pariksit, this entire universe, with its great, exalted demigods like Lord Siva, Lord Brahma and Lord Indra, is under the control of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Yet the Supreme Lord has one transcendental attribute: He comes under the control of His devotees. This was now exhibited by Krsna in this pastime [Damodara-lila, Mother Yasoda tying Krsna]. Neither […]
  6. We must feel separation

    We have to follow in the footprints of the Gosvamis and search out Radha and Krsna in this way. Vrndavana is in our hearts, and we must search for Him there. This is the process recommended by Caitanya Mahaprabhu, the process of worship in separation. Feeling separation from Krsna, Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu would throw Himself into the sea. […]
  7. Busy fools and the economic problem

    Prabhupada: But they are busy fool. They do not understand the God’s arrangement. Only for food they are busy whole day and night like cats and dogs. Now this land is there. Everyone can grow food if he works for two months. Everyone can grow his whole year’s foodstuff. There is so much land. But no, they’ll not grow […]
  8. Krsna’s hobby is not dog-abhipalayantam

    When we speak of Vrndavana, it is not imagination. In the sastra, there is description, how Krsna is there, what He is doing. Especially it is mentioned, surabhir abhipalayantam. Krsna has got this hobby. Just like our hobby — dog-abhipalayantam. We keep, every one of us, especially in the Western countries, a dog. So why not Krsna keeping so […]
