    ‘He, the
    silversmith, put the metal into the fire and sat watching it’.

    The lady read
    this line from a scripture and was confused what it meant. She decided to go to
    a neighboring silversmith and watch his work and inquire with him.

    And that is
    exactly what she saw the silversmith doing with the metal. He put the metal in
    the fire and sat watching it. She asked him why did put the metal in the fire and
    sat watching it. He replied that he was watching the metal so that he could
    remove it at ...  more

      Reena Menon Hare KRishna MAhesh Prabhu,

      A bonafide spiritual master can reclaim the fallen souls provided they sincerely surrender to him and accept his words as it is... A spiritual master gives us the rope to climb up from the dark well of ignorance in which we were helplessly trapped.. but to grab that rope and make use of this golden opportunity is in our hands... That is possible when we lay our complete trust in him and with full surrender accept the rope to come out of the well... It is not possible if we hav...  more

      vanshika bhatia That purifying of metal is like tapasya, you do tapasya and become pure, this story is also like.. we need to pick up the milk and leave the rest of the water. Prabhuji, that post was not individually for you or anyone, but for everyone getting a little sidetracked, going to mayavada or something unauthorised. You are very dear to us, cuz we know you are also practicing Krishna Consciousness, like we do and trying hard to become pure. And Srila Prabhupada says, 'if you see gold in the filthy place pick it u...  more

      vanshika bhatia "I have learned... ever lost
      to Me” (BG 6.30 and 4.35)." You have wonderful realization, but everyone is not able to get that realization. Nothing to hurt you or anything Prabhuji, it just that it seems that devotees have a negative outlook on the material world and people they meet After all, to give up one’s life completely for serving the Lord is not so easy thing. And Maya, or the illusory material energy, she tries especially hard to try to get back and entrap those who have left her service to beco...  more

      Reena Menon The main mission of Srila Prabhupada in introducing Krishna consciousness movement was to spread pure Kc to the human society... While preaching pure KC anything that is adulterated or is not as per authority of Krishna is simply disturbance and there should be absolutely no tolerance towards it in preaching or following krishna conscious whether one is advanced or not because they will pose as hindrance towards human society... Actually its not about tolerance its about reinstating the authority of the phi...  more

      Sarnaduti Brahma Hare Krishna!

      Without being attached to the means, it is not possible to attain the goal of becoming situated in Krishna consciousness. In fact, the process of Krishna Consciousness is so nice that it continues in the spiritual world also. In a way, the means of serving Krishna is the goal itself.

      The comments made here were never meant for personal attacks, but to understand the philosophy of Krishna consciousness, as explained by Srila Prabhupada in his books. It is always better for any of us not t...  more

      Reena Menon Why Do Devotees Have a Negative Outlook on the Material World?

      SRila PRabhupada: The actual fact is that this material world is a miserable, negative place, full of danger at every step. It is a temporary abode of death, birth, disease and old-age, home of suffering and pain only. To come to this platform of understanding of things as they are, is not a very common thing, and therefore such persons who attain to it, they are described as great souls
