The Spiritual World

Spiritual World

 

The Supreme Personality of Godhead has innumerable expansions of His transcendental form who eternally exist in the spiritual world. This material world is only a perverted reflection of the spiritual world, where everything is manifested without inebriety.

There everything is in its original existence, free from the domination of time. Time cannot deteriorate or interfere with the conditions in the spiritual world, where different manifestations of the Supreme Personality of Godhead are the recipients of the worship of different living entities in their constitutional spiritual positions.

In the spiritual world all existence is unadulterated goodness.The goodness found in the . . . → Read More: The Spiritual World

No Such Thing as Atheism – Really!

saturn-rings

The venerable Vaisnav Saint Srila Bhaktivinode pointed out that atheism and agnosticism don’t really exist. Rather, these moods arise in the hearts of human beings who are too much over-ridden with enviousness, anger, lustfullness and other base qualities.

Despite truckloads of evidence, a certain type of character is required to appreciate and realize Divinity. Consider how people sometimes pray to God for the perfect husband or wife. Yet when told God can, or has Feminine Companions, they will totally deny the possibilty. If that isn’t weird, I don’t know what is!

Why? Often it is due to plain old Envy. . . . → Read More: No Such Thing as Atheism – Really!

Divine Consciousness and Happiness

Srila Prabhupada

 

 

We are all creatures of material nature. In the Bhagavad-gītā it is said that the Lord Himself is the seed-giving father and material nature is the mother of all living beings in all shapes. Thus mother material nature has enough foodstuff both for animals and for men, by the grace of the Father Almighty, Śrī Kṛṣṇa.

He is endowed with intelligence more powerful than animals for realizing the course of nature and the indications of the Almighty Father. Human civilizations should depend on the production of . . . → Read More: Divine Consciousness and Happiness

People Suffering Due to Ignorance

Srila Prabhupada

 

 

 

“…That is life, Krishna, sarva-karana-karanama [Bs. 5.1], cause of all causes. So this is not theory; this is fact. Now we have to prove it. Then the whole program of these rascals’ theory will be changed, and people will be happy. Because they are standing on a wrong theory, all their calculations are wrong, and people are suffering. The rascal Darwin’s theory. So many, based on this foolish theory, wrong conception of life. So we have to challenge, protest. defeat. This will be our work.” Morning Walk LA 5/3/1973

Life from Life

Srila Prabhupada

“…Life is existing. It is not exactly the word that life generates, no. Life is existing. The matter is generated. Matter is generating, and it stays for some time, again it is vanished. Just like this body. This body is born at a certain date, and it will be finished at a certain date. This is matter.

The wood was born at a certain date from the tree. It remains green for certain time. Then it is not green, dry. Then, after some time, it will be finished. Matter is not permanent. Matter is changing. Sad-vikära. Six kinds of . . . → Read More: Life from Life

Sri Krsishna is Beautiful

My Diary

Not sure how often I’ll write. Greatly inspired by His Holiness Satsvarupa das Goswami. He is a prolific devotional writer and unusually open and honest.

Yesterday was Halloween, didn’t have candy for the kids. Unusual oversight. Not a biggie Like devotees of both ages past and present I struggle here and there to “stay on track”.

I didn’t come from a religious background. I never thought of a personal God before meet ing devotees. It’s been a serious path of self-transformation. I’ve discovered that the Lord most certainly exists and is present. What stands between is the . . . → Read More: First Entry November 2011
