Today we honor the 42nd anniversary since His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, passed away from this world. Affectionately known as Srila Prabhupada to his followers, he was the first spiritual teacher in the Krishna tradition to step outside of Indian soil and successfully spread the teachings of Bhakti-Yoga around the world and created a historic revolution in spiritual living. ⠀

Invitation to Golden Anniversary Week (online presentation)

Invitation to Golden Anniversary Week (online presentation)
A magnificent once in a lifetime Gala celebrating 50 years of Hare Krishna culture in the UK.
The Hare Krishnas have been making a mark on the UK scene for 50 years: from connecting with the Beatles and other pop icons, to visibly dancing on the streets of London, to feeding those in need, to providing a place of worship for spiritual seekers and Krishna worshipping settlers. They have done all of this while actively reaching out to share joy, peace, love and happiness through personal connections and meaningful projects grounded in deep and timeless wisdom. But most will know and remember the Hare Krishnas for music, dance and great food.

Indradyumna Swami: A few days ago our parikrama party visited Radha Kunda, the most sacred place in the universe. We approached Srimati Radharani’s kunda with all the humility we could muster and bathed in the sacred waters. We also listened to a discourse on Radha Kunda’s glories and relished kirtan and prasadam afterwards.

When and how to read, recite, chant and hear Srimad Bhagavatam

Hare KrishnaBy His Divine Grace A.C.B. Swami Prabhupada

Discussion of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, which describes the character and pastimes of devotees and the Lord, is very quickly effective. The International Society for Krishna Consciousness has been organized for this purpose. In every center of this Society—not only in the morning, evening or noon, but practically twenty-four hours a day—there is continuous devotional service going on. Anyone who comes in contact with the Society automatically becomes a devotee. We have actual experience that many karmīs and others come to the Society and find a very pleasing and peaceful atmosphere in the temples of ISKCON. Continue reading

Letting Srila Prabhupada Speak for Himself

Hare KrishnaBy Kesava Bharati Das Goswami

To help propagate this revival, I’ve made a vow to live-stream my daily reading of your books. On the Facebook App, if one searches for “Daily Readings of Srila Prabhupada’s Books” and “likes” the page, one can hear your books, either live or at one’s convenience. Now I’m reading the Eleventh Canto of Srimad-Bhagavatam. But when I finish the Bhagavatam I’ll move on to Sri Caitanya-caritamrita and read it out loud cover to cover; then the Bhagavad-gita As It Is, cover to cover; then back to the Srimad-Bhagavatam, and so on, for the rest of my life. I seek your blessings, Srila Prabhupada, to complete this vow. Continue reading
