Lord Krishna and Jesus Christ- an excerpt by Srila Prabhupada.Many people often wonder what is the view of Lord Jesus Christ in the Krishna consciousness movement.
Srila Prabhupada, the foremost exponent of the Krishna
consciousness movement explains that Jesus is Krishna's representative, son of God, and spiritual master.
Below are excerpts from Srila Prabhupada's books, lectures, and conversations about Jesus Christ and his
relationship with Krsna.

"If one loves Krishna, he must love Lord Jesus also. And if one perfectly loves Jesus he must love Krishna too. If he says, "Why shall I love Krishna? I shall love Jesus," then he has no knowledge. And if one says, "Why shall I love Jesus? I shall love …

Srimad Bhagavad Gita As It Is jayanti commemoration

Bhagavad Gita As It is edition is worldwide acknowledged as the best and true rendering and it is translated into almost all the world langauges.

Gita Jayanti is observed on the 11th day, Ekadasi, (23-12-12) of the Shukla Paksha (waxing phase of moon) of Margashirsh month as per traditional Hindu calendar.On this day about 5000 years ago Bhagavad Gita was retold by Lord Krishna to Arjuna, which was taught to the Sun God at the begining of the creation.
The Bhagavad-gita is universally renowned as the jewel of India's spiritual wisdom. Spoken by Lord Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead to His intimate disciple Arjuna, the Gita's seven hundred concise verses provide a definitive guide to the science of self realization. No other philosophical or religious work reveals, in such a lucid and profound way, the nature of consciousness, the self, the universe and the Supreme.

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada uniquely and truely presented the English translatio…

Spirituel Identity for Gross Global Happiness

Identity playes the role in determining the degree of happiness. There is no other tangible alternative, yet the best identity for the inner happiness and salvation is to realise the spiritual identity, not particularly of religious.

Old is gold! Why is it so also in regard to dharma?

Old is gold, also in regard to dharma.  Here the modern world's the most emminent sage Srila Prabhupada explains, to what should we call as the religion? Listen this from Bhagavad Gita As It Is chapter 4 verse 3. Who can understand it in the perfect way it was meant to, by the Lord Krishna? You will get all the answers. Currently the Hare Krishna movement is looked down and chanting the mahamantra is interpreted as primary exercise by a few followers of so called Manav Dharma founded by Sri Satpalji maharaj. They suggests instead to chant the 'unspeakble premordial name' of whom? known to only themselves. Prabhupad explains here the absolute truth, that will be good for all the human beings if looking for the truth alone from the authentic sources. The text and the purport of this verse is also reproduced below. Chapter 4. Transcendental Knowledge TEXT 3 sa evayam maya te 'dya

The saviour of the world- Prabhupada's legacy

On the occasion of Srila Prabhupada's Tirobhava Mahotsava 2012, here is a letter which HH Bhakti Charu Swami wrote for all the dear disciple children of His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada ---------------------------------------
Please accept my best wishes. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

Just a few days before Srila Prabhupada left this world, two very important personalities came to see him. They were the ex-Governor of Madras, Sriman Narayana, and his brother-in-law Ram
krishna Bajaj, the head of Bajaj Industries. They asked Srila Prabhupada whom he would appoint as his successor. His Divine Grace replied that he was not going to appoint any successor. He was giving his legacy to all his disciples – whoever followed would receive that legacy.

In this way Srila Prabhupada made it very clear that those who will follow his instructions will carry his legacy. This legacy is the mission of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu – the mission of spreading Krishna Consciousness all over the world in eve…

The journey of the subtle body

Very intersting and tangible evidences of the presence of the subtle body and its influence on the gross bodily activities are told to the audience of the Vedic cultural gathering by the very person who experianced it.

The reference to the subtle body mentioned by the Lord Krishna, see Bhagavad Gita As It Is 15:8 verse was practically experianced and proved by a devotee Frank de Boer which he told convincingly. Here under reproduced in summary is his life experiance both by his gross and subtle body.

'As long as I can remember from my childhood, I was always painting a certain type of picture in my dream. This dream I saw almost every night and I was haunted by it. My mother is a very pious lady and believes in God. She is spiritually elevated and always enquisitive to know the absolute truth, the life and the force that makes this material body conscious, the vedic term to describe this  is her 'bramha jigyasa'. I am glad still today that my mother is always the source fo…

Homes will be lighted with special lamps, special prayers sung and meet and greet everyone, give charity and havest the yeild and offer to the creator- the Lord Krishna, all this is recommeded in the month of Kartic according to the Vedic culture.

Very special month of the year in view of vedic culture is kartik that falls in the month of Oct/Nov.

Vaisnava philosophy to Manav Dharma of Sri Satpalji maharaj emphasized

Reproduced on demand of the readers. Saintly persons wishes only for the good of others! 23/2/10 A saintly women from Haridwar, disciple of Satpalji who founded Manav Dharma, Dharani Baiju mataji shared her experiance of self-realization. Addressing the Vedic Cultural house in Boxtel on 20th February, she explained the impersonal aspect of the supreme personality of Goadhead Sri Krishna.  She urged that the happiness can be found within, thus one has to look into thier self with the help of a spiritual master. The goal of human lif is to qualify spiritually to go back to the abode of our spiritual father, the Lord Krsna. She asserted that nawadays people are engaged only in eating, mating, sleeping and defending and thus the purpose of human form of life is forgotten. Just like, if you have a car and you put fuel in it but don't drive it to the destination the purpose of buying it is useless.

Devotion to God is the only way for happiness.  Baiju mataji explained that one has to loo…

Manav Dharma of Satpalji Maharaj will be better only IF they follow Krishna Consciousness also

OPINION

By elevating yourself to Krishna Consciousness your goal of having a human form of life will be attained easily and quickly as you would qualify to get into the kingdom of God. On the earth too, you will live  in peace of mind.There is not other authentic quick and easy way.

Every one needs peace and thus the human races has been in search of peace and happiness all the time. They are looking for the methods that would hopefully enable them attain peace mentally and physically. In the process some look out for the ascending order of methods, some the descendeing order. Both deserve equall respect although one method would be more beneficial and easy than the other depending on the individual themselves.

The perfect wisdom to accept for peace or liberation is the descending process of wisdom. This means the proces of attaining peace and happiness by accepting the wisdom that is given by the absolute creator, Lord Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. This wisdom contain spi…
