Srila Prabhupada was sent by the Lord to fulfil Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu's prediction Prtvithe ache yata nagaradi grama, sarvatra pracara haibe more nama- In every town and village of the world, My name will be heard.

Offerings to Jagat Guru His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada on His appearance

Dearest Śrīla Prabhupāda, Please accept my most respectful obeisances at the dust of your divine lotus feet. During my first meeting with you, you asked me to translate your books into Bengali. It was such a display of your causeless mercy upon this fallen soul. That service allowed me to approach you at any time, and eventually enabled me to become your Secretary for Indian Affairs. Those engagements expanded further into cooking for you and taking care of your various other needs. I was not only busy throughout the day but also was able to be with you at night. Someone had to be with you all the time, and my shift was from midnight till two. So many nights, when you could not sleep, you spoke and I listened with rapt attention. I remember one night in Vṛndāvana, a profound stillness prevailed everywhere, and from a distance we could hear the sound of a kīrtana softly floating through the serene silence of the night. You said, “This is India—wherever you go you can hear the chanting of t…

Sacred thread and the protecting knot

21 Aug 13. For brothers as well as sisters, Vedic tradition reserves the day for them to celbrate their relations and renew for eac others' protection. This day is on the full moon day of the month of August; 21st this year. It is called Janai purnima and also Raksha bandhan.

Janai or the sacred thread is worn by men of higher consciousness who have undergone the sanskar called bratabadha. Sanskar means purification process from which sankriti comes, ie culture. It is the Vedic culture that elevates one to purificatory process. Janai is worn across the shoulder and there are prescribed methods to be followed strictly according to the Vedic wisdom.

Raksha bandhan is dedicated to foster brother- sister ralationship by wearing similar type of sacred emblem around the wrist. Sisters offers this emblem of love to their brothers on this day. But before offering to wear it, janai and raksha bandhan emblem are purified through Vedic hyms and firstly offered to the the Lord Krishna. Otherwis…

Terugblik Naamhat Boxtel, de Vedische cultureelthuis voor iedereen

ISKCON Namahatta in Boxtel neemt de terugblik van zijn activiteiten van het afgelopen jaar 2012-13 in zijn 3e zaterdag programma van deze maand. De 12e jaargang van de Naamhat is nu begonnen.
‘Ten eerste, help de mensen in je omgeving. Daarna denk je aan anderen te helpen’. Dit was de opdracht van Zijne Heiligheid Sri Bhakti Caru Swami Maharaj in de jaar 2002 toen ik voor de tweede keer hem mag begroeten. Hij vertelde aan mij dat de beste help je kunt aanbieden aan de mensen is het geven van de gelegenheid voor Krishna bewustzijn. Er is geen andere hogere welzijn aangelegenheid dan het Krishna bewustzijn. Ook Mahavishnu Swami en Navayogendra Swami Maharaj vertelde mij hetzelfde. Dan had ik op 18 augustus 2002 de Naamhat in Boxtel begonnen.
Een verslag van de opening van de Naamhat Boxtel was verschenen in de Krishna Bhakti Magazijn van augustus 2002. Dit was voorgelezen door een Nederlanders mataji voor de aanwezigen van het programma van 17 augustus 2013. Daarna benadrukte Frank prabhu…
