A pledge with a social affair of fear mongers who are stowing without end inside an alliance relationship in Pampore, 15 km from Srinagar, has connected for well over a day. Effects and discharges are being heard once in a while from inside and around the building, used to offer fit expecting to vivacious Kashmiris.

An outfitted urge warrior was harmed in the vital satisfaction yesterday. The data being shared here is put off so as not to hazard the security powers doing engaging the mental oppressors.

Powers said the experience has related on in light of the way that the building offers an “opening like” security to the fear mongers. Clearly especially stacked in ammo and supplies, they have shown an imperativeness to hold out and draw out the operation.

There are no prisoners, sources said, in light of the way that classes have been suspended for over three months in view of the anguish in the express that started with the killing of 22-year-old mental oppressor Burhan Wani.

ISKCON 50 Meditations: April 24, 2016

If Krishna consciousness was ever to take hold in America, it would have to be without assistance from the Indian government or Indian financiers.  Not even a lone Indianbrahmacari would join him.  Krishna was revealing His plan to Prabhupada in a different way.  With the Singhania-sanction schemes finished and behind him, Prabhupada would turn all his energy toward the young men and women coming to him in his Bowery loft.  He wrote to Sumati Morarji:

I am now trying to incorporate one corporation of the local friends and admirers under the name International Society for Krishna Conscious.

Two Devotee Women Co-author Popular Yoga Book

For the first time ever, two women initiated into the Brahma-Madhva-Gaudiya Vaisnava Sampradaya have published a popular book that emphasizes the bhakti tenets in two of the world’s most revered yoga texts: theBhagavad Gita and Yoga Sutras.

The book illuminates parallels between these two texts in a practical, philosophically rich and entertaining manner, while adhering to the interpretations given to the original Sanskrit texts by ancient yoga tradition itself.

Yoga in the Gita became an Amazon bestseller in its category in the first week. The book emerged from a series of online articles that Krishna Kanta and Braja Sevaki published in a blog of the same name that they started in 2012 under the prompting of Bob Weisenberg, former yoga editor ofElephant Journal, a popular online magazine. The Yoga in the Gita blog generated hundreds of thousands of views due to a grateful readership of primarily yoga teachers, yoga practitioners, bhaktas and bhaktins. It was due to the repeated requests of the blog’s followers that the book was eventually born.

While yoga studios around the world require that their teachers-in-training study theBhagavad Gita and Yoga Sutras before becoming officially certified yoga teachers, they often resort to translations of these texts that obscure the valuable bhakti yogainsights originally found in these texts.

Fed up with human apathy, farmers seek Lord Krishna’s help

Fed up with cold response from district administration to their demand to declare Devbhoomi Dwarka as drought-hit, farmers on Tuesday knocked at the God’s door for help and submitted a memorandum to Lord Krishna seeking divine intervention to alleviate their sufferings.
Dozens of farmers led by NGO Khedut Hit Rakshak Samiti submitted the memorandum to the high priest of the famous Dwarkadhish temple in Devbhoomi Dwarka district, dedicated to Lord Krishna.
In the memorandum addressed Lord Krishna, the farmers pleaded for help and said they have come to him “as a last resort” after getting tired of approaching Government officials with their list of demands.
They listed their demands before the God, which included declaring the district as drought-affected, setting up cattle camps, providing water for drinking and irrigation and reducing power connection tariff.
Recently, the BJP Government in Gujarat declared parts of district as drought-hit.
“We have come to you as a last resort…the present government, elected from farmers’ votes, is working for the industrialists. Government invest crore of rupees to organise farmer programmes but refuses to address our problems. Leaders and government officials are corrupt, and we farmers are crying for help,” the memorandum stated.
“Government is not thinking of waiving interest on crop loan for the current year. Nothing is being done to ensure water supply for irrigation…the CM calls herself farmer’s daughter, but makes hollow promises in the name of farmer welfare,” it stated.

ISKCON 50 Meditations: March 31, 2016

Prabhupada is discussing the real meaning of going to a sacred place in India.

One should go to a sacred place in order to find some intelligent scholar in spiritual knowledge living there and make association with him.  Just like I … My residence is at Vrindavana.  So, at Vrindavana, there are many big scholars and saintly persons living.  So one should go to such holy places, not simply to take bath in the water.  One must be intelligent enough to find some spiritually advanced man living there and take instruction from him and be benefited by that.  If a man has no attraction for hearing from learned people there, he is considered to be an ass.  (He laughs.)  So, the whole civilization is moving like a civilization of cows and asses.  Everyone is identifying with the body … Yes, you want to speak?

Woman:  In the places known as secret places –

Prabhupada:  Sacred.  Yes.

Woman:  Is it “sacred” places?

Prabhupada:  Yes.

Woman:  Isn’t it also a fact that there is more magnetism because of the meeting of saints and more advanced people?

Prabhupada:  Oh yes.  Certainly.  Certainly.  Therefore the place itself has got some magnetism.

Woman:  Yes, and when –

Prabhupada:  Just like at Vrindavana – that is practical.  Here I am now sitting in New York, the world’s greatest city, such a magnificent city, but my heart is always hankering after that Vrindavana.

“We Cannot Help You”

He wrote again to Sri Padmapat Singhania, requesting him to send a man from India to supervise work on the temple in New York, as Mr. Singhania had previously suggested.

There is no record of any reply to this request.

Prabhupada wrote again to Sumati Morarji, requesting her to please send him a mrdanga to accompany his chanting of the Hare Krishna mantra.  He also requested her that in the future, when he would send many men from India, she oblige by giving them free passage on Scindia Steamship Lines.

No reply.

As his financial situation became more urgent and his hopes more strained, his support from India withdrew in silence.  His unanswered correspondence was itself a kind of message, loud and clear: “We cannot help you.”

ISKCON 50 Meditations: March 16, 2016

Srila Prabhupada told us many things about his relationship with his spiritual master.  One time, Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura reprimanded him when it appeared that Srila Prabhupada had diverted his attention from his Guru Maharaja’s lecture.  When they first met, Srila Prabhupada debated with Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati about India’s independence.  Prabhupada told us, “I liked being defeated by my spiritual master.”  He dreamt of his spiritual master, too, mostly the same serious dream, in which Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati told Srila Prabhupada to take sannyāsa.

His spiritual master praised him highly on a number of occasions for his attentive hearing, and for his poetry and prose writings.  He said, “Whatever he writes, publish it.”  When Srila Prabhupada’s godbrothers asked Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati to make Srila Prabhupada the president of the Bombay Temple, Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura said, “It is better that he lives outside your company.  He will do everything himself.  You do not have to recommend him.”

After their first meeting, Srila Prabhupada had to travel away on business, but he often thought fondly of his spiritual master.  Of course, they had some personal meetings in which important things were conveyed to our Srila Prabhupada, especially his Guru Maharaja’s order, “If you ever get money, print books.”  Then, near the end of his Guru Maharaja’s life, they exchanged letters.  Srila Prabhupada asked, “How may I serve you?”  And his spiritual master replied, “You can explain in English our thoughts and arguments.  This will do much good to yourself as well as to your audience.  I have every hope that you can turn yourself into a very good English preacher if you serve the mission.”
