Ignorance of SIN causes violation (16th Jan program)

In this modern age, the problem of every kind are caused due to men's forgetfulness or ignorance of sin. What can be called as sin and why one should not commit sin is the issuse ignored in the modern academic pursuit. Ignorance or forgetfulness of this vital norm is the cause of all the problems, like terrorism, human rights violations, environmental pollution etc. In other words, people's disinterest in transcendental knowledge as mentioned truely in The Bhagavad Gita and such holy scriptures. This was discussed in the montlhly Vedic cultural program in the first month of the year. However one can be very sinful that accumulates through the the violation of natural laws and societal norms like killing, eating meat, illicit sex and hurting others which will eventually result to bad reactions- every action has equal and opposit reaction, as scientists say, getting bad reactioins will be quickly avoided if one believes and surrenders to the Lord Krsna. This has been explained in the Bhagavad Gita chapter 4. The transcendental knowledge explained here builds in men  good qualities and God consciousness and will gradually refrain one from sinful activities.Explained here in short, in Cchapter 4 verse 36:
api ced asi papebhyah
sarvebhyah papa-krttamah
sarvam jnana-plavenaiva
vrjinam santarisyasi
TRANSLATION : Even if you are considered to be the most sinful of all sinners, when you are situated in the boat of transcendental knowledge, you will be able to cross over the ocean of miseries.

PURPORT : Proper understanding of one's constitutional position in relationship to Krsna is so nice that it can at once lift one from the struggle for existence which goes on in the ocean of nescience. This material world is sometimes regarded as an ocean of nescience and sometimes as a blazing forest. In the ocean, however expert a swimmer one may be, the struggle for existence is very severe. If someone comes forward and lifts the struggling swimmer from the ocean, he is the greatest savior. Perfect knowledge, received from the Supreme Personality of Godhead, is the path of liberation. The boat of Krsna consciousness is very simple, but at the same time the most sublime.

Vedic culture, if appreciated and followed, builds peace in the natural way because it cultivates the knowledge to respect all sentient beings as the children of God. The more people become sinful, there will be problems on earth. Foregetfullness or disrespect of it is the cause that societies and nations are divided today.

Value education based on Bhagavad Gita As It Is begun.
His Holiness Bhakti Caru Swami donates 5000 Bhagavad Gita As It Is.
Naamhat of Boxtel, Netherlands donated 500 Euros. Hare Krishna Vaisnav tradition has been supporting value education at all levels. This education focusses on the right understanding of the wisdom passed down by the Lord Krishna, particularly the Bhagavad Gita. Many centuries has passed away already however, the true essence of this transcendental wisdom was rarely understood in its true sense, as Arjun understood it and applied. But now with the dawn of the world's most authentic presentation of the Bhagavad Gita As It Is version by Srila Prabhupada, imparting the value education based on this source of wisdom began. Currently, in an organised way under the project; Gita Champion League, His Holiness Bhakti Caru Swami Maharaj begun imparting this wisdom which focusses not only on distributing the book, Bhagavad Gita Asi It Is, but also encouraging to put in test…

Garud Puran samengevat bij Naamhat Boxtel

17 mei 14. Prabhupada benadrukte op alle 16 sanskaras-de zuivering procedures te volgen.
De laatste sanskar-antesthi kriya moet worden gedaan met de hulp van een priester wanneer men verlaat zijn of haar lichaam.
Ook wanneer een beginnende toegewijde het lichaam verlaat, is een priester vereist om deze laatste rituelen uit te voeren, vooral voor de eerste en de laatste drie dagen.
Als er geen ISKCON priester beschikbaar is om te helpen uitvoeren van deze rituelen, wordt er geadviseerd om een karmakandi priester te roepen om deze laatste rituelen te doen voor de overleidende toegewijden. Een karmakandi priester voert deze met gebruik van de Garud Purana.  In het Noord-India, Nepal en Bhutan de brahmanen reciteren van de Garud Puran voor de rouwenden tijdens de rouwperiode te luisteren. Maar de inhoud van de Puran is niet veel uitgelegd of begrepen wordt om het voordeel van te krijgen. 
Een Vaisnava toegewijde hoeft niet de laatste rituelen uit te voeren op dezelfde manier de anderen kunnen…

Symposium on 'Gross Spiritual Happiness' / 'Bruto Spiritueel Geluk' by HH Bakti Caru Swami Maharaj

Update 2nd June after the session: His Holiness Bhakti Charu Swami Maharaj accompanied by HH Bhakti Prema Swami and four brahmacaris kindly blessed Naamhat Boxtel on 2nd June with their auspecious visit. In transcendental pleasure maharaj performed aarati to our deities and offered garland to Srila Prabhupada. Then caran avisekh, a rare chance of blessing was kindly bestowed to the host that we did together. 
Maharaj then preferred to take little rest as he was tired due to travel. He arrived to Boxtel via Wijchen from Rotterdam where he gave the previous day a session with the disciples and then a class at Audaryadhaam. 
In Wijchen, maharaj visited Shree Ram Mandir very nicely run in the Sanatan dharma tradition by a team of pious families. 'If people could cooperate each other irrespective of their background and unanimously approach the government, building such a nice temple in Holland is always made possible' said a Brahmacari who witnessed the discussion between the temp…
