Hiranyakasipu and Prahlad.Kadamba Kanana Swami: Lord Brahma…

Hiranyakasipu and Prahlad.
Kadamba Kanana Swami: Lord Brahma pushed Prahlad forward and said, “Well, He appeared because of you, so you go and pacify Him!” Well, it does not look very heroic when you shove a five year-old boy forward like, “You go and deal with Him!” (Laughter)
No, we should not take it in that way, we should see that Lord Brahma is most intelligent and therefore very deeply analysed the situation and also realized that Prahlad is not just a five-year-old boy, he is extremely powerful – nothing could kill him, nothing could possibly kill Prahlad! So many attempts were made to kill him but nothing worked.

What is the difference between mind and intelligence? Let’s see…

What is the difference between mind and intelligence?
Let’s see how the mind and the intelligence fixed in knowledge respond when a beautiful object that is actually harmful appears in front. The mind says, “I want this, I want to enjoy this.” But the intelligence fixed in knowledge says, “No. This is illusion. Enjoying this is like licking the honey on the edge of a razor blade. You might enjoy little, but then you will suffer.” But the intelligence not fixed in knowledge would figure out all kinds of strategic, decisive plans to somehow or other get that object of enjoyment.
If the mind is controlled by the intelligence in knowledge, it is the best of friends. But if the mind is not controlled by the intelligence in knowledge, and it controls the intelligence, the mind is your worst enemy. Yoga means to control the mind by God conscious intelligence. We develop God conscious intelligence through study of the scriptures which tells us what is good for our spiritual progress and what is not, even though the object may appear otherwise.

Hare KrishnaBy Iskcon Mayapur

Sriman Jayananda Thakura left his body in full glory during the auspicious time of brahma-muhurtaon May 1, 1977, listening to a tape of his beloved spiritual master chanting in his ear, and with a maha garland from Lord Jagannatha cradling his neck and resting on his chest.

Lord Nrisimhadeva’s Appearance to a sincere devotee.
Lord Nrisihadeva is very merciful to His devotees, and his mercy can be experienced in Andhara Pradesh, at a village called Darpally near Niazamabad, where a couple lives with the bare necessities of life.

But from the core of his heart he was prying to serve Lord Narasimhadeva’s vigraha on the same alter. His wife helped him in various ways to have Lord Nrisimhadevas Vigraha but they failed and finally decided that if the Lord wants then He will come on His own.
