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 26, 2016

How difficult it was becoming to preach in America among these crazy people!  He had written prophetically in his poem the day he had arrived in Boston Harbor, “My dear Lord, I do not know why You have brought me here.  Now You can do with me whatever You like.  But I guess You have some business here, otherwise why would You bring me to this terrible place?”  What about his scheduled classes?  What about David – should he go back and try to talk with the boy?  This had been David’s first fit of violence, but there had been other tense moments.  David had a habit of leaving the soap on the floor of the shower stall and Prabhupada had asked him not to because it was a hazard.  But David wouldn’t listen.  Prabhupada had continued to remind him, and one day David had gotten angry and shouted at him.  But there was no real enmity.  Even today’s incident had not been a matter of personal differences – the boy was a victim.

Prabhupada walked quickly.  He had free passage on the Scindia Line.  He could go home to Vrindavana.  But his spiritual master had ordered him to come here.  “By the strong desire of Sri Srimad Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura,” he had written while crossing the Atlantic, “the holy name of Lord Gauranga will spread throughout the countries of the Western world.”  Before nightfall he would have to find some place to stay, a way to keep up the momentum of his preaching.  This is what it meant to be working without government sponsorship, without the support of any religious organization, without a patron.  It meant being vulnerable and insecure.  Prabhupada faced the crisis as a test from Krishna.  The instruction of  Bhagavad-gita was to depend on Krishna for protection: “In all activities just depend upon Me and work always under My protection.  In such devotional service be fully conscious of Me … You will pass over all the obstacles of conditional life by My grace.”

He decided to phone Carl Yeargens and ask him to help.  Hearing the Swami’s voice on the phone – it was an emergency! – Carl at once agreed that Prabhupada could move in with him and his wife, Eva.  Their place was close by, on Centre Street, five blocks west of Bowery near Chinatown.  Carl would be right over.

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.

Maharashtra celebrates Dahi Handi on Sunday

Maharashtra the popular and often dangerous tradition of Dahi Handi was celebrated on Sunday, marking the birth anniversary of Lord Krishna. Teams of people will form human pyramids to reach high hanging handis or pot of curd. The Maharashtra government had recently made the activity an adventure sport, barring anyone below 12 from participating. Ironically, some of Mumbai’s biggest patrons of Dahi handi, mostly politicians, have chosen to stay away from this year’s event, to express disappointment about, well believe it or not, heightened safety regulations.

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.

No One Has Seen a Picture of Krishna

Prabhupada is speaking:  We should always remember that He is God.  He is all-powerful.  In strength, no one could conquer Him.  In beauty – as far as beauty is concerned – when He was on the battlefield … Have any of you seen a picture of Krishna?  Have any of you ever seen Krishna?  Oh … no? 

Prahbupada’s voice fades as he pauses, looking out at his audience.  No one has ever seen Krishna.  None of them have the slightest previous knowledge of Lord Krishna.  In India, hundreds of millions worship Lord Krishna daily as the eternal form of all beauty and truth, and view His graceful form in sculpture, painting and dance.  His philosophical teachings inBhagavad-gita are all famous.  And Prabhupada is His intimate emissary.  Yet the ladies and gentlemen in Room 307 look back at the Swami blankly.

An Instrumental Tribute To The Son of Mother Sachi

On the auspicious occasion of the appearance day of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, Dr Sahadeva Das offers two Esraj songs unto His divine lotus feet. These songs, ‘Ujjvala Varana Gaura Vara Deham’ and ‘Nava Gaura Varam’ were composed by Srila Sarvabhauma Bhattacharya. The melody has been taken from the albums of Bhakti Charu Swami.

Esraj is an important instrument in traditional vaisnava music and by the 1980s the instrument was nearly extinct. Of late, this instrument is seeing some revival. However only a handful players remain all over the world. The Esraj played here is carved out of a century old block of Burma teakwood. No effects or reverb have been added to the sound of the instrument.

“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.”
