  2. Society Gone Mad

    Jaya-gopala: What is meant by madness? Prabhupada: Just as don’t you see all these people of the world, they are mad? What they are doing? They whole day the cars going on this side, that side. What is the aim of life? They’re mad. Simply wasting petroleum, that’s all. What they’re doing? Huh? Suppose a […]
  3. Sambhoga and vipralambha

    Krsna can be felt, Krsna can be present more acutely in separation. That is Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s teaching: to love Krsna in separation.

Whether in dasya-rasa, sakhya-rasa, vatsalya-rasa or madhurya-rasa, all the devotees of Krsna are always overwhelmed by thoughts of Krsna. When Krsna is away from Vrndavana tending the cows in the forest, […]
  8. Maidservants of Krsna

    The gopis are maidservants. The Laksmis are maidservant. You will find this description in Srimad-Bhagavatam, Krsna book, that all the queens of Krsna, they were discussing with Draupadi female talk.
