“It’s Never Too Late” (Album with photos)
Dharmatma das: When I came to the Temple in Vancouver in early ‘72 Harinam Samkirtan and book distribution was the priority, as per Srila Prabhupada’s desire. Bahudak prabhu was expert in getting everyone out right after breakfast until evening program then an hour door to door then back for hot banana milk and Krishna Book. Those were my wonderful early days in Krishna Consciousness.
Fast forward 45 years and by Srila Prabhupada’s grace and Lord Krishna’s mercy I’ve been fortunate to get back to these basics. Connecting with Harinam Ruci SKP Party a few years back was a Godsend and being in the association of such dedicated book distributors such as Mahavishnu Swami, Kavichandra Swami, Vaisesika Dasa, Visnu Jana prabhu, Gourakarunadas Frantisek Stichauer , Harinamananda Das, Sandipani Muni Krsna, Vrajendra Kumar prabhu, Sundar Nitai Dasa, Adikarta Das, Balavanta Das, Riksaraja Dasa, Jyoti Das and so many more great SKP warriors. The program is 3-5 hours of street Harinam along with book distribution, seven days a week. Simple living and great association traveling to different parts of the world spreading Krishna Consciousness. It’s not easy for this 74-year-old body but it’s so rewarding and satisfying knowing Srila Prabhupada would be pleased.

For those of you who need a recharge in your spiritual life, take the risk, pray to Krishna (He will help you), find someone you’re inspired by, watch Vaisesika Dasa Book Distribution Seminar and find a way to get Srila Prabhupada’s books out to the masses. You won’t regret it.

After 8 days in Mexico City my totals were 212 small books and Mucho Pesos to be used in Krishna’s service. Viva Mexico!

Remember it’s never too late !!!!

Meaning and Reasons for Diwali Celebrations

Hare KrishnaBy Gandhari dasi

Diwali comes from the word Dipavali which has two words dipa means light and avali means carrier. Therefore Dipa or Diya (1) signifies ‘coming to light’. In the Vedic Literature it is mentioned: “Tamasa Ma, Jyotir Gamaya” means ‘Do not remain in Darkness, Come to Light’, meaning ‘come to spiritual awareness or awakening’. In the Bhagavat Gita Chapter four verse seven and eight Lord Krsna says: ‘yada yada hi dharmasya glani bhavati bharata, abhyudhan dharmasya, tadatmana srijyamya ham, Pavitranaya sadhunam, vinasaya ca duscritam’. Translation is ‘Whenever and wherever there is a decline in religious principles and predominant rise in irreligion, I descend Myself again and again to kill the miscreants and to re-establish the principles of Dharma’ This is illustrated in the Diwali celebrations which are in the rememberace of Lord Krsna’s various pastimes. Unless the true meanings of these celebrations are understood they will become merely commercialized These events have been celebrated for millions of years. E.g. Lord Rama and his whole entourage had appeared on earth in Treta Yuga Continue reading
