Gita Jayanti- de dag om na te denken naar de absolute waarheid

English version here:
Op 5 december 2012 is de Gita Jayanti. Dit is een gelegenheid gesteld in de Vedische cultuur om na te denken naar de absolute waarheid zoals het gegeven is in de Bhagavad Gita Zo As Ze Is.
Op Gita Jayanti herdenken we de dag waarop Heer Krishna de Bhagavad-gita sprak tot Zijn dierbare toegewijde Arjuna op de plek die bekend staat als Jyotisar Tirtha, Kurukshetra, temidden van de strijdende Kuru’s en Pandava’s. Het is nog steeds mogelijk om deze plek te bezoeken en het monument te zien van Heer Krishna als “Partha-sarathi” (de wagenmenner) en Arjuna als strijder. De ashram die deze tempel onderhoudt, beweert dat de boom die er groeit, afstamt van de oorspronkelijke boom die daar stond toen de Bhagavad-gita werd gesproken.
Traditiegetrouw gaan toegewijden naar Kurukshetra (Dharmakshetra) en reciteren daar dan de Bhagavad-gita van de vroege ochtend tot vroeg de volgende ochtend, offeren arati aan Bhagavad-gita en aan Heer Krishna en Arjuna op de strijdwagen, offeren la…

Kesavi singing Bhajan

Reproduced from April 2009.  The spiritual practice must start in the early age so that they can deal with the sufferings from the material bondage later on easily. This helps one connect with the supreme and just like a factory owner provides facilities to his factory manager, one's life will be prosperous if one becomes the devotee of the lord Krsihna.

Bhakti or devotion is the only thing that if one follows to do, he or she makes difference as human being because devotion to the supreme can be easily done when the living entity has the human form of body. In other forms of  bodies that is not possible. So the human form of body is the blessed one provided the consciousness is developed to attain Krishna consciousness, the highest one, out of one's enthusism. 

If love to the supreme is inculcated in on'es mind talents to glorify the supreme absolute truth develops automatically. A case of this is here: Kesavi singing bhajan in Amsterdam temple

Life after death! But where?

19/11/11.  The presence of a devotee of the Lord Krishna, in other words, a Vaisnavan at the time of death in anyone’s family is a blessing to the departing soul. Kevin prabhu from Belgium in his preaching at the Naamhat Boxtel on 3rd Saturday of November highlighted this spirit where he has practically applied the teachings of Bhagavad Gita As It Is in a difficult circumstance in which his friend, a nurse, left her body that has to be cremated. The intelligent ones will certainly think of what would happen to the living force in the body when the body lies dead? The Supreme Personality of Godhead Krishna reveals all the truth to these life’s important issues. To mention here in particular; the Lord said in Bhagavad Gita, chapter 8 that …. whoever, at the end of his life, quits his body remembering Me alone at once attains My nature. Of this there is no doubt. See verse 5: anta kale ca… This is a supreme declaration and the goal of the human form of life. Just like a king does have a …

Hare Krishna Pakisthan

12/11/11. At times of dufficulty Hare Krishna's scientific approach to human happiness is practical in life and at the time of death. This is the impression a family originally from Pakisthan living in Rotterdam gave to the aspirant devotees who gathered for the Vedic cultural program organised in their house on 12th November 2011. 
Worth to mention is that their family members in Pakisthan are dedicated in chanting the mahamantra that gave them the real happiness at times of difficulties like the death in the family. 'When my mother left her body, she was leaning at my father's breast and calling the name of the Lord Krishna- Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna' said Manoj showing the visitors fotos and videos of the gatherings of devotees chanting Hare Krishna mahamantra during the funeral rites of his mother. 
He said that the devotees in dozens came to their home all the 13 days of the mourning period and chanted the glories of the Supreme, day and night. This is something su…

Letter to Mahatma Ghandhi of India by Prabhupad in 1947

Letter to: Mahatma Gandhi

Mahatma Gandhijee
Bhangi Colony
New Delhi.
Dear Friend Mahatmajee,
Please accept my respectful Namaskar. I am your unknown friend but I had to write to you at times and again although you never cared to reply them. I sent you my papers "Back to Godhead" but your secretaries told me that you have very little time to read the letters and much less for reading the magazines. I asked for an interview with you but your busy secretaries never cared to reply this. Anyway as I am your very old friend although unknown to you I am again writing to you in order to bring you to the rightful position deserved by you. As a sincere friend I must not deviate from my duty towards a friend like your good self.

I tell you as a sincere friend that you must immediately retire from active politics if you do not desire to die an inglorious death. You have 125 years to live as you have desired to live but you if you die an inglorious death it is no worth…

Srila Prabhupada seen with tears

Source: BCSistagosti, Volume 12, Chapter 1By Indradyumna Swami “Your Deep Compassion” Dearest Srila Prabhupada, Please accept my most humble obeisances in the dust of your lotus feet. Thirty four years ago today you departed from our material vision. Although the departures of pure devotees are celebrated as glorious in the vaisnava tradition, I honestly have never felt this to be a day of festivities. Instead of celebrating, I feel more comfortable spending time alone remembering your pastimes amongst us and reflecting on my service to your divine mission. Of course, it was natural that you would leave one day. My godbrother Pita dasa relates in his memoirs how, a few days before your departure, he heard you ask a group of devotees at your bedside, “Why are you all crying?” “Because you are so sick, Srila Prabhupada,” one of the devotees replied. “We are afraid you may leave.” It was then that you made a statement that has become famous. “I will never die,” you said. “I w…

Goverdhan worship, respecting the earth on whom we all survive

Reproduced. Goverdhan puja is the token of respect to the environment, the earth, ovserved in the Vedic tradition. It will he observed on 27th of this month, also in Naamhat Boxtel.

When we know that our survival depends on the fertility and productivity of nature, the soil, the enviromnet, the Earth, then it is for everyone the object of worship. This was one of the arguements Sri Krishna, the Lord put forward to Nanda Maharaj when He appeared on earth personally in Dwaper yug, some five thousand years ago. Thus a tradition of worshiping Goverdhal Hill was established. It is also becasue that hill represents Krsna and Radha ad their pasttimes. During the celebration of this festival, Giverdhan miniature is made of cow dung and worshipped with offerings. Radha Krsna and their associates are invited to reside on that hill. Circumambulating that alone can eliminate the sins and purify your existence. When the Goverdhan hill was worshipped following the instructions of Sri Krisna, the de…

Yagya in Vedic cultural center in Boxtel, NL

Yagya the fire ceremony sacrifice was performed in the Naamhat Boxtel on  28th July. This ceremoney is the sublime method to invoke natural balance in the local environment and purify the existence.  In The Bhagavad Gita the Lord declared thus: It uis I who am the ritual, I the sacrifice, the offering to the ancestors, the healing herb, the transcendental chant. I am the butter and the fire and the offering. Chapter 9, verse 14. This yagya was perfomed in ultimate sense to please the creator of all existence.
One has to understand ultimately that everything is under the controll of the supreme, the God, the creator. Therefore all the human beings are indebted to the supreme controller for their existence just like we are indebted to the suplying agents of water, electricity, gas etc appointed by the governement of every state. One has to pay the bill so that the government will be please with and continues the necessary supply. In reality the ultimate supplier of every ingredients tha…
