  • Why this blog ?

    In all the scriptures, it is clearly established that the cause of our suffering is due to forgetfulness of our relationship with God. But currently we have either wrong understanding or no understanding about God or even Religion. Srila Prabhupada, my spiritual teacher used to say, if we have got wrong understanding about God or Religion then we should not abandon God or Religion; instead we should work towards getting the right understanding, just like if we have cataract in our eyes, we ask the doctor to remove the cataract and not the eyes!! This spiritual blog is an humble attempt in this regard.

  • What is Krishna Consciousness Movement?

    We are not teaching some ritualistic process, that "You become Hindu. You become Christian. You become Muhammadan." We are simply teaching, "You try to love God. You have forgotten God. You have declared, 'God is dead.' These are all nonsense. God is there. You are here. You are suffering because you have forgotten God. You try to love God. Your normal life will come back. You will be happy." This is Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement.
