Last Post of the Age

2012 Mayan

Well today is 12-21-2012, or as one web site declared “Mayan Age Ends 12-21-2012 but heralds in a New Age of spiritual enlightenment” Good! Glad to hear it. Hare Krishna! This is our last post for a while as we thought 12-21-2012 was a good day to start an adventure, travel, take a short journey, and just go for some walks, read and chant more, etc. Or as one great thinker put it, “Today is the begining of the rest of my life” So we will be back to post some more Krishna Nectar soon.

We will leave you with this small bit of Krishna Nectar:

…Since it was almost night, and all the inhabitants of Vṛndāvana, including the cows and calves, were very tired, they decided to take their rest on the river bank. In the middle of the night, while they were taking rest, there was suddenly a great forest fire, and it quickly appeared that the fire would soon devour all the inhabitants of Vṛndāvana. As soon as they felt the warmth of the fire, they immediately took shelter of Kṛṣṇa, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, although He was playing just like their child. They began to say, “Our dear Kṛṣṇa! O Supreme Personality of Godhead! Our dear Balarāma, the reservoir of all strength! Please try to save us from this all devouring and devastating fire. We have no other shelter than You. This devastating fire will swallow us all!” Thus they prayed to Kṛṣṇa, saying that they could not take any shelter other than His lotus feet. Lord Kṛṣṇa, being compassionate upon His own townspeople, immediately swallowed up the whole forest fire and saved them. This was not impossible for Kṛṣṇa because He is unlimited. He has unlimited power to do anything He desires.

“Please try to save us from this all devouring and devastating fire. We have no other shelter than You.”

Yes this is Krishna Consciousness…in whatever situation we are thrown if we simply remember Krishna (God) we can consider ourselves fortunate.

Srila Prabhupada on Astrology

‘Whatever may come by Your mercy, let it come.’ That’s our philosophy. That’s our siddhanta. But if you know it’s going to rain, it’s better to take an umbrella.”

Srila Prabhupada on Astrology

Feb 28, 2012 — FRANCE (SUN) — From:

‘Memories of Shrila Prabhupada, Anecdotes of a Modern Day Saint’.

Shrila Prabhupada often called Pradyumna das Adhikary his “Panditji.” Beginning from 1968 Pradyumna was the first among the Western disciples to learn Sanskrit. Under the guidance of his spiritual master, he lent his expertise into all of Prabhupada’s literary projects. A natural scholar, Pt. Pradyumna Prabhu traveled the world with Shrila Prabhupada carrying any number of weighty tomes with him. He assisted with the Bhagavatam project right until the last days of the pure devotee’s earthly manifest appearance.

The following conversation with Pradyumna was recorded several years ago by the innovator of the Memories series, Shriman Siddhanta das.
