On defending and the other necessities of the material body

posted in: English

Answer to a question Dear devotee, Srila Prabhupada mentions various times the four necessities of the soul identified with a material body, which are eating, sleeping, mating and defending.

What is karma

posted in: English

  The word karma comes from the sanskrit root kr, which more or less means “to do”. Every single action enacted by us will provoke a reaction of similar nature.

Something about the form of Govardhana

posted in: English

As a result of a curse, Govardhana is sinking down below the surface in the measure of a mustard seed every day. Our future generations will not have the opportunity to see not even the partial part of Giri Govardhana that we can see. Around Govardhana there are … Read More

Don’t criticize and don’t glorify… ??

posted in: English

Question Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur Prabhupada No one should criticize or glorify others’ natures or activities. Śrīmad Bhāgavatam confirms this instruction.
